Biblical Meaning of Fire in a Dream

The Bible is full of symbolic meanings for dreams and fire is one of them. In the dream world, it can represent destruction or change. Fire can also mean spiritual things.

In the Bible, fire often signifies protection from God as well as Him teaching about Himself. For example, in Exodus 3:2-3, Moses had a dream where he saw a burning bush and heard God speaking to him. The next day when he woke up, he found that the bush was still burning but there was no one around to talk to him. God told Moses when He wants man to hear His voice that He will speak through a burning bush—the fire is what saves people from being able to see or hear Him.

On the other hand, in Daniel 4:13-14, Daniel had a dream in which he saw an enormous statue made out of gold (a symbol of wealth) on top of a huge mountain and above it was an even larger statue with four heads that blazed like fire.
