The Bible speaks about a fiery law. A literal translation is "fire law".
I had a thought about this last week. What if LoF means: Be fully subjected to or submerged in the law?
LoF = law
That laws burn with brimstone. Brimstone is nearly equal to God. So the law is not just a law; it's (purifying) divine law.

a. God sits in the Holies of Holies.
b. From His throne flows water. --> Dan 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: ....
c. This water fills the Laver. -> Can be found in Jewish Temple books. (mentioned in OT?)
d. That water is symbolic for hyper refined gold. -> Jewish understanding. (mentioned in OT?)
e. Because it's said hyper refined gold is transparant and shines like a sea of glass and sparkles like fire we can replace water with fire.
f. The law of God is literally called a fire-law.
g. So the law flows from His throne and fills the Laver (LoF)
h. The lake=law burns with brimstone. The Greek word brimstone is very closely related to divine/God(ly)
i. Temple Priests daily wasted themselfs in that Laver to be purified for their Temple duties.
j. That washing in LoF purified them so they where allowed to enter the inner Temple complex.
k. Malachi 3:2 God sits in front of the Laver to purifies His gold. --> Tormented/tested
l. Water represents fire. Fire represents the divine law. So the Laver/LoF is filled with the divine law.
m. The goats that are cast in LoF are just young sheep that need to learn the law.

KJV Mat 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

WW Mat 25:33 And he shall set the old on his right hand, but the babes on the left.
