I see it similarly. On the one hand you have this kind of tongue of fire.James 3.6
The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil (iniquity) among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one's life on fire, and is itself set on fire by (the Valley of Hinnom).
On the one hand that Valley of Hinnom is how man will be judged by "fire" of his own boasting of great things and steering the course of his life into a furnace, having the whole body set on fire of that valley on the outside of the city. Gehenna is where dead bodies were burned, and those who are dead in sin, set the course of that "fire" upon themselves.
On the other hand, you have this kind of tongue of fire which judges them also….Acts 2:3
They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
So as their temples are in ruin, their streets are empty, their vineyards dried and ruined by their own "world of iniquity" still, the word is preached to them "come all you who are thirsty." That is a judgment because it tells them who they are: thirsty, lacking, needing Christ, and it brings them to their knees when they finally have ears to hear it.
