Israel and the Fig Tree

Israel and The Fig Tree

 

Note: The fig tree is either a sign of Israel or it represents a time when God’s pours out His blessings on Israel.

The following are selective scriptures:

 

“I found Israel Like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers As the firstfruits on the fig tree in its first season. But they went to Baal Peor, And separated themselves to that shame; They became an abomination like the thing they loved. (Hosea 9:10)

 

And Judah and Israel dwelt safely, each man under his vine and his fig tree, from Dan as far as Beersheba, all the days of Solomon.  (1 Kings 4:25)

 

The fig tree puts forth her green figs, And the vines with the tender grapes Give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away!  (Song of Solomon 2:13)

 

I will surely consume them,” says the LORD. “No grapes shall be on the vine, Nor figs on the fig tree, And the leaf shall fade; And the things I have given them shall pass away from them.”‘  (Jer. 8:13)

 

For a nation has come up against My land, Strong, and without number; His teeth are the teeth of a lion, And he has the fangs of a fierce lion. He has laid waste My vine, And ruined My fig tree; He has stripped it bare and thrown it away; Its branches are made white.  (Joel 1:6-7)

 

And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away.    (Matt 21:19)  (See Jer. 31:31-34 – New Covenant to Israel)

 

“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.  (Matt 24:32)
