God is a consuming fire. He will destroy and help you annihilate.

Deuteronomy 9:3 But be assured today that the LORD your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a consuming fire. He will destroy them; he will subdue them before you. And you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly, as the LORD has promised you.


God is a consuming fire is a much quoted attribute of God. However, do we think of it in terms of destruction and annihilation of people?

I have always understood this to mean that fire cleanses and makes anew...instead of being destructive.
