Biblical Meaning Of Fire In A Dream


BIBLE VERSES: 1 Corinthians 3:15 -17, ”If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.”

Some fire dreams can be highly destructive. It can represent a sign of tragedy, calamity, sorrow, death and even loss of  opportunities, properties. If you are a business owner and you keep a burning shops, start praying against loss of properties. Fire kills, maybe you dream where fire killed a person, it indicate loss of soul. Or such person is being faced terrible problems.

It could be that your child was involved in fire incidence, then dream indicates attack on your child. Or perhaps you dream where you see fire burning on the mountain, it indicates Holy Spirit is showing you a place of prayer. If this is true that you are looking for where to pray, it is a sign God is about to answer your prayer in a new environment.

Through your fervent prayers, you can detect this.  If you dream that fire is burning your house, this means the enemy is trying to plant evil in that house. Maybe before you have been having a feeling of a person trying to plant a charm around your house or land. Then this is time for you to pray against witchcraft agenda.


Fire is destructive and powerful in nature. Spiritually, it can warn us of an impending danger ahead.  However, the advantage of fire is a factor of an early warning which would create a sign of safety.

The Bible describes God as “a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:29), so it is not surprising that fire often appears as a symbol of God’s presence.

Examples include the burning bush (Exodus 3:2), the Shekinah glory (Exodus 14:19; Numbers 9:15-16), and Ezekiel’s vision (Ezekiel 1:4).

Fire has many times been an instrument of God’s judgment (Numbers 11:1, 3; 2 Kings 1:10, 12) and a sign of His power (Judges 13:20; 1 Kings 18:38).

The Biblical meaning of dream is what the Bible explain in Exodus 3:2, ”The angel of the LORD appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed.”

In Biblical terms, fire reveals the power of God  in a number ways. However, it frequently appears in the Bible as a symbol of God’s anger and judgement and destruction. The dream of fire generally has impact on the dreamer as it consumes, warn, and illuminates, but can also bring pain and death.



There are several dream interpretations about fire decoded by people.  From the positive side and possibly from Biblical angle, seeing fire appearing in your dream could represent a sign of God’s presence and Holy Ghost power (Acts 2:1-13).

To see fire in the dream is a demonstrative work of the Holy Spirit to prepare and charge your spiritman for the battles ahead.

When a person’s spiritual life is going down, this dream also reveals that you need to receive the baptism and the fire of the Holy Ghost. The fire of the Holy Ghost is to activate and exercise your spiritual gifts.

For obvious reason, if the fire is not destroying anything in the dream that is, for example,  you saw the fire burning in a bush or land without having to burn down structures or goods, then the dream meaning is serving as a way that God wants to speak with you.

From the negative side, a dream about fire , represent the symbol of loss, anger and stagnation. On the other hand, if you dream that fire is burning lives that is very tragic and it reveals that something mysterious will happen.

However, this dream can lead to loss, hardship, unprofitable investment and untimely death of loved ones. If you notice that a known person was inside a burning fire then it reveals that the enemy is planning to take and destroy the virtues of that person.

There is nothing as bad when a person lost his hard-earned properties to fire incidents. When you dream that fire burnt down your structures – houses, shops, companies and other goods, that means an angel of loss, profitless hard labour has been assigned to eat up your profits/gains in life.


This dream meaning is applicable to people who wake up from this dream feeling so sad, unhappy. The following dream means:

  1. Prayerlessness
  2. Good things have been terminated
  3. Spiritual attacks
  4. Pulling away from God’s glory.
  5. Spirit of starting all over again
  6. Spiritual lukewarmness and blindness
  7. Living a life without achievement/purpose
  8. Forces of darkness are eating your seed
  9. Constant stagnation and operating in a wrong location
  10. Something bad is about to happen
  11. Living under a curse of inability to finish a project/task
  12. Failure at the edge of breakthrough
  13. Doing a thing God did not assign you to do.
  14. Shame and disgrace.
  15. It exposes one to troubles and other health attacks
  16. Caging of blessings and resources.
  17. Sorrow and weeping.
  18. Regret for wrong doing.

There are some evil powers. They attack people with fire in the dreams and when they wake up they would had a feeling that something has been taken out of them. The fire dreams gives you a description or warning of what witchcraft is planning against you. These wicked powers have brought more problems for people and they are getting away with glory and destroying them.

The Bible says, 1 Peter 2;9, But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Fire according to above verse is the surest sign of judgement and destruction. For example, if you have been living  in sin and you dream that fire was burning you, it is either your secret sin is exposing you or you are under satanic torment.

When fire burns off a person completely in the reality, what happens? Of course, the person will no longer have the capacity to live or enjoy his or her right as human.

Fire incidence happens when there is a close contact with fuel and electrical forces. In dreams, there could be no sufficient knowledge who set up the fire and who might be behind the fire tsunami.

It is clear that when the fire burns a things beyond recognition means that thing will no longer be useful.


Considering the book of 1 Kings:18:17-46, Elijah was a powerful man who pray more in aggressive ways and in an understandable manner, and oftentimes God answered his prayers by fire.

Elijah was displeased with King Ahab because he and his followers were worshiping idols instead of worshiping God. So Elijah told the king that there would be no dew or rain in the land for a long time.

He wanted the wicked people to be punished for their sin, and wanted to prove to them that God in Heaven was the true God and that same God will answer him.

Elijah told the king to bring all the people to a mountain named Carmel. When they were all there together, Elijah said to them, How long halt ye between two opinions?

If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. He wanted the people to make up their mind as to who was God. But the people did not answer Elijah.

Elijah said that he was the only prophet of the Lord; but that Baal, the idol, had four hundred and fifty men.

Then Elijah suggested that the followers of Baal take an animal and cut it in pieces and lay it on wood and put no fire under it. Elijah would also take an animal and do the same.

That was the way that people offered sacrifices in those days. Then they should call on their god and he would call on his God. The one who answered by fire would be the true God. All the people said, It is well spoken.

So the prophets of Baal did as Elijah had said. They prayed to Baal from morning until noon. But nothing happened – there was no voice to be heard, and no fire came down upon their altar.

So Elijah began mocking them. He said that they should cry louder; their god might be on a journey, or he might be sleeping and needed to be awakened. They cried louder and even cut themselves; but no fire came down from Heaven.

Right away the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones, the dust, and even licked up the water that was in the trench. Then all the people fell on their faces and said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.

So Elijah had proved to the wicked king and all his followers that their god was not the true god, but that the God that he served was the true and living God.


On the positive side..

Hebrews 12:29, ”For our God [is] a consuming fire.”

Luke 12:49, ”I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?”

We can also look in this biblical direction that the concept of fire in the dream indicates the meaning of spiritual power, brokenness, salvation, repentance, holy fire etc

Fire is an important and necessary part of salvation for many Christians who want to away from sin and seek first the kingdom of heaven (Matt 6:33). The symbol of fire in a dream can also mean a way to walk on your spiritual life and the avoidance of secret sins.

As a Christian, if you want the fresh fire upon your life, you have to allow your spiritual life to be in a very strong burning desire for God. The enemy will attack you particularly when your fire is down.

The flame in a dream signify the need for God to speak with you in a serious that concerns your salvation.

If you constantly see fire pursuing you in the dream, it means the enemy is around the corner and it is a symbol that your enemy is planning against you.

The enemy wants to use that fire as well to destroy the gift of your salvation and cause you to backslide.

In this category, the dream about fire is to help you walk with God better, displaying honesty before God and be conscious of your sin and seek ways to flee from them.

In addition, to make you embrace the word. No wonder the Bible says, Jeremiah 23:29, “Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?”.

Fire burns things. For example, if you put your hand into the fire and see if this is not going to burn you! That’s how God’s word is.

So God’s Word is the instrument that the Holy Spirit uses to touch and burn our consciences, so that we become aware of the things that are displeasing to God and contrary to His will.

There are many people that carried the fire of God but lack spiritual understanding on the effectiveness. Many of those who claim to have the fire of God are actually disconnected from God.

No wonder the Bible says, Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Sin has made God to hide himself from you so that he cannot hear you. Probably you think you are hearing from God because of your anointing, unfortunately the presence of God has departed from you for long.


On the negative side…

If you see a fire in a house then this dream means a spiritual arrow has been fired into the ”heart” of your marriage (if you are married) to bring problems. The problem could manifest in the form of misunderstanding, financial problems, lack of trust, high degree of suspense, anger and the showings of other negative attitudes.

On the other hand, if you are not married and you see your house in a fire then it means a loss of precious things resulting to your regret, stagnation and failure.

This dream also mean that the devil is trying to sack you in the place of prosperity and cause you homeless.  Spiritually, if this dream become so frequent, you may need to go for deliverance to rescue yourself from any kinds of loss.

To see fire in your home can cause you to beg when there is no reason to. Sadly, when you refuse to pray against such dream, your expectation on restoration will gradually fade away. People who experience this  generally encounter problems from certain areas of their life.

This spiritual fire can create a platform of waste if care is not taken. When you experience fire in your house, village, then there are powers that want to bring a terrible problem between you and your tenants and mostly your landlord as the case maybe.

This is why we have to be very prayerful as Christians.  The enemy is trying to keep you away from your place of blessing and comfort. But the truth is that you have operating under witchcraft attack.

Many people do not understand why their lives have remain stagnant for many years. If you attacked spiritually by fire, you may not be able to gather your prosperity and prosper in it.

One common attack from this dream is the attack against your gathering/properties/. Other obvious sign in a person’s life is curse of wandering aimlessly.

Prayer is usually only considered as a last resort for people with this kinds of dream. The right prayers will restore whatever the enemy has destroyed in your life, in Jesus name.


As said above that fire is destructive. However, a number of people have written me that they usually experience the dream where fire burnt them.  And in this case, there is an household power that want to destroy or kill you as a result of your glory.

Through fire burning dream, you may be tempted by your enemy to eat a food poisoning or take a gift that will kill you slowly. In most cases, the person may continue to experience health challenge and memory problems. It is a serious matter.

That’s why it’s important to ask God to protect you and open your spiritual understanding at all times. If you are burned in the dream, things may not go well for you as planned and if you are a woman, this may spiritually develop as a stumbling block against your helpers/suitors.

And if you think you have been burned more than once in a number of dreams, there is probably a serious issue being planned by agent of darkness.

On the contrary, if such fire fails to burn you or it burned you and you escape out of the inferno, that signify a great sign of victory from the power of death and hell.  Unexpected fire outburst kills faster. It’s important to keep in mind that just as you escaped from the fire is a sign that God is with you in your present challenges. If you fail not to pray, you will enjoy more from God.



If you dream of car on fire represent a loss of one of your great assets. This is a dream of accident that prevent a person or people from reaching his goals. Having a determination to succeed is the key and having God’s support is a clear evident that you will make a good move.

However, this is a classic way the enemy has been stealing precious things and thereby causing road accident that will lead to death. Though if your car is caught by fire, there are chances that something tragic might attack the wheel of progress of your car in reality. Once the enemy attack the car with a flame of fire, you will become easily vulnerable to satanic attacks. This dream indicates that you should try to make a new plan, achieve all your plans in life. Things will work out one by one through prayers.


Fire explosion occur when an inflammable material are closely available. When an explosion occurs for example, it requires urgent action from the firefighter and or from people.

If a dream of fire explosion came into play, it means a great tragedy and calamity are planning to attack you. As serious as it is, it could also be a messenger of the presence of hellfire.

Let’s look at what the Bible said here, Revelation 21:8 , ”But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

The presence of fire explosion appearing in your dream is sending a signal that hellfire exist and it is time for you to start making amendment of your spiritual life. The Bible says, all liars will be find themselves in the thick of the fire. Including sinners will find their place in the pit of hell.

To dream of fire explosion brings the definition of this biblical meaning: Proverbs 14:12, ”There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

If the fire explosion claims lives whereby they are burnt to ashes, then it means the high number of people that will perish in hellfire because of their hidden sin. There is a penalty for going to hell if you fail to observe this biblical judgement:

Romans 10:9-10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

These days people are dying for no reason and further revelation indicates that something is not right with the way of their life on earth. Fire explosion in dream explains the entrance of sorrow, weeping and untimely death as written in Revelation 21:4.

Spiritual explosion leads you to the pathway of death. It causes plenty of harm and afflictions. And it adds fuel to the fire, boosting the impact of other issues that raise your chances of getting attacked by messenger of death and hell.

No matter how high is the fire explosion in the dream, however, but the truth is, if you fail to repent from your sin, you may rot in hell.  That fire may just be an outlook of hellfire.  The Bible says,  2 Corinthians 6:2 , ”(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”



A building is a great asset to the builder.  No matter the outlook of a building, it is a great blessing to have. Now if you see a building on fire in a dream, biblically it  is bad. In Jeremiah 52:13,  ”And burned the house of the LORD, and the king’s house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great men, burned he with fire:”

Their houses were burned off. There is no way a burning house in both dream or reality can represent a blessing and as such any person that has such thought is likely an evil agent who is standing as a barrier to blessings.

If the fire burned off your document etc that signify a sign of a spiritual attack against your documents, properties. You know that the enemy does not want you to grow, prosper and fulfill destiny. If you do not rise up with the ability to pray for your restoration, the enemy will keep burning things in your dreams and this may paralyze you as a person thereby causing many loopholes in your life.

Who knows if such a building fire is not connected to your own marriage? Read what the Bible says, For this purpose that he might destroy the works of the devil.  This means that Jesus has come to destroy the works of the devil and restore back whatever the enemy has damaged in your life.


To dream of running away from fire is a indication of escaping yourself from destruction and death. In this dream context, fire is interpreted as enemy. To run away from fire is a good way of protecting yourself from danger and troubles. Having multiples fire around you might also put you at risk.

When there is fire in appearing in your dream, it is a sign that the enemy is trying to attack you. It is a great prayer point when you ask God to guide and protect you in any danger.

However, this dream attack can come from the areas you don not expect. A person can be powerless when a fire burned his body. If you run away from fire does not mean that you are free forever rather it mean you should not allow your enemy to get you unaware.

This dream can mean that you desperately want to find someone who will help you in life but with no help, God stood for you and take you out of that satanic bondage.


If you dream of fire and smoke is an indication that there is fire on the mountain. That fire is a big problem.  It is also a sign that something bad has been programmed by the devil to hunt after your destiny. Before fire appears here comes the smoke, it however gives a sign that a door of sorrow and loss has been opened unto you.  Do you see smoke often in your dream? If yes, that’s usually a sign of spiritual attack. A dream of smoke and fire will introduce fear, and a disappointments. The Bible says, we should redeem the time because the days are evil.
