Back to the fire

But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. Heb 10:39

But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.Gen 19:26

Remember Lot's wife.Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. Luke 17:32-33

Whenever God delivers His children from the mindset and delusions of the world (the fire that consumes their souls) and translates them into His mindset (His Kingdom, the mindset of Christ which is attained by self denial i.e the cross), there is always a strong lure in them to return back to their former mind-state because it offers visible rewards and promises that are evidenced by the earthly eyes.

Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.Heb 10:38

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:1

The promises of God can only be seen by the eye of faith and when we stop seeing by faith, the things of the world would instantly begin to regain their appeal in our lives and we will fail to see the destructive effect that they have on our souls.

 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.Heb 3:13

 In order to stay away from the fire that is currently consuming the world, we must never cease to see by the eye of faith i.e we must never lose faith and confidence in God's verdict about the fate of the world and the fate of our souls if we deny ourselves and stay with Him.
