Fire from the Tongue

“And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.” (James 3:6, NLT)

When one thinks of fire, the image of a blazing inferno with scorching flames immediately comes to mind. So, how does fire in a man come about?

Why does man return to the earth as ashes, the final stage before dust? Why does the pastor repeat the phrase “ashes to ashes and dust to dust,” at a funeral? God made Adam (Adamah), meaning earth or land, in the Hebrew translation. Genesis 3:19 (NIV) states, “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” Also, Ecclesiastes 12:7 (TLV) states, “Then the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”

Were we ever “fire” in our flesh before we became flesh? The answer to this question is “yes”; from a spiritual perspective, we are born out of a fire. Almighty God, our Creator, is a flaming, consuming fire. Elohim breathed His breath of fire into Adams’ lungs, the cold clay body became “hot” with blood, and Adam breathed–the breath of life through his body. My question proves we made “hot” spiritually from fire, known as (esh—אש) in Hebrew.

So, yes. Our earthly bodies, known as tents, surround our spirit, and we will return to the earth, but thanks be to Jehovah God. Our spirit will return to Father God; if you are a Christian, you will leave with the Triune God in heaven one day.
