Is Israel the Biblical “Fig Tree” that is considered a sign of the end times?


Q: Is Israel the Biblical “Fig Tree” that is considered a sign of the end times? 

A: To understand how Israel figures in this, you need to first, look at all the biblical references to the fig tree … 30 verses, in totality … this one being the key:

Mat 24:32 And from the fig tree learn a parable: When the branch thereof is now tender and the leaves come forth, you know that summer is nigh.
Mat 24:33 So you also, when you shall see all these things, know ye that it is nigh, even at the doors.
Mat 24:34 Amen I say to you that this generation shall not pass till all these things be done.

Then you need to analyze the history, see what actually happened, and working backwards, put all the pieces of the puzzle together.

When you do that, you’ll see that the fig tree does indeed represent Israel, that the apostles were given a “season” (40 years) to water and fertilize it (with the Gospel), and when the fig tree still failed to bear fruit (rejected Christ and the Gospel), it was plucked out by the roots and burned (courtesy of the Romans, who sacked Jerusalem and burned the Temple to the ground, in the late SUMMER of 70 AD) and that some who had actually heard Christ speak those prophetic words were still alive at the time, to witness it all.

About the only thing the modern secular state of Israel has in common with the Israel of old, is it’s continuing institutionalized persecution of Christians.

Will that be enough for Israel to prominently figure in end time events, as many Christians believe?

Tune in again next time, for the amazing conclusion!
