The testing is for now. Our testimonies are for always!
Fig tree? For now! Even The Word shows us that… The fig tree is the third tree to be mentioned by name in the Hebrew Bible. … During Solomon’s reign Judah and Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, lived in safety, each man “under his own vine and fig tree” (1 Kings 4:25), an indicator of national wealth and prosperity.
Jesus‘ cursing of the fig tree wasn’t some whimsical or annoyed outburst, as some suppose. It was an object lesson on the fruit born of genuine faith, in contrast to the worthlessness of empty religion, which they’d just witnessed in the temple.
The cursing of the fig tree was an acted parable. All the trees in the fig orchard were destitute of fruit; but the leafless trees raised no expectation, and caused no disappointment. The other trees without leaves therefore represented the Gentiles. They made no boastful pretensions to goodness.
