"violent delights" refers to the tryst between Romeo and Juliet. The speaker, Fryar Lawrence, is foreshadowing their eventual deaths and the strife between their rival families (the Montagues and Capulets) when he talks of "violent ends".

"in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which as they kiss consume" means that, when Romeo and Juliet get together, they will consume one another with their kiss, and so find their end (eventual dual suicides) -- just as, when fire touches gunpowder ("fire and powder") the two explode and are used up.
