That was two different fires mentioned there. We could either believe and receive Jesus and be baptized by the fire of the Holy Spirit, or reject Jesus and be baptized by hell fire. There's a contrast between the two there.

But we can see that John the Baptist's message was repentance, baptism, and receiving the Holy Spirit, just like it says in Acts 2:38.

I don't knoiw how many Apostolics got this, but I want to share this. Notice how John the Baptist said, "Prepare ye the way of the Lord". And he said that he baptizes unto repentance, but that they would be baptized with the Holy Spirit and with fire. The Holy Spirit wasn't given yet, but he preaced repentance and baptized people. It hit me one day that that's what he was talking about when he said, "prepare ye the way of the Lord". He was talking about repenting and being baptized to prepare ourselves to receive the Holy Spirit, to prepare the way for the Spirit of the Lord to come and fill us.
