"fruit of the fig tree"
the spiritual fruit of Israel
As I was studying scripture concerning Israel and her
near-to-be time of distress, I was looking at the prophetic
utterance of Christ's of the Fig Tree(as I have many of times
over the past fifteen years), and the previous day' "parallel"
event in which He curses the Fig tree for not bearing fruit.
Trying to keep in mind the "spiritual" aspect of this event and
the subsequent prophecy, was mulling over the implications as it
relates to modern day Israel(like many of us in the Body of
Christ, knowing that this parable is of pivotal importance) and
her geographical budding-forth, i.e. the '67 &'73 post war
However, on this occasion, the Lord had in place for me,
several other bits of information or pieces of the puzzle that
made me view His desired "new growth" froma more spiritual
perspective. I had just been reading the of way in which the fig
tree shoots forth buds of fruit at the same time as the
leaves sprout new growth and realized that this was what
Christ was referring to "spiritually" in Matthew 24 and Mark 13.
We know that what God the Father desired and most
earnestly wants from the nation of Israel and it leaders is
Spirtual Fruit and the shooting forth of "new branches" must
include this Spiritual growth or fruit(as spoken of by Paul in
Galatians 5:22 , also Peter's "chain of the Graces" in 2nd Peter
1:5-7). So, our inclination to consider Israel' final generation
as starting with those post war expansions is two dimensional
and carnal, at best. And, to think that an entire generation,
weather 40 or 70 years, must transpire before "all these things
come to pass", is also a bit presumptuous. These things can come
to pass at any point after we see fruit from the nation of
Israel! SPIRITUAL FRUIT. I think the Lord uses obfuscation to
confuse the "Goodman of the house".
I was thinking upon these things and turning them over
within my heart and mind when the very next articles I opened in
my list of items to read was an item from 2010 about the
creation of a "national trail" in Israel that follows the
footsteps of Jesus, and then a more recent article concerning a
Bible study group organized by Benjamin Netanyahu. My spirt
right away spoke to me of this being precisely the "type"of
fruit our Heavenly Father has been looking for and the timing of
all this being relative to the very final moments of what we
know as the "Church Age". This was a "sign" God was showing me
on a personal level that Israel's "time" had truly arrived and
for me was further confirmation as to the very late hour of the
"times of the Gentiles".
Now, it is, that this generation is due to pass. Now has
arrived the time of Irael's spiritual rebirth. The water has
broken and the birth pangs are nearly perpetual and the Groom is
at the doors.The buds of her fruit are apparent, yet unformed.
But, with a little time and trauma, she will bear. When the God
of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, a.k.a. Yeshuah ha Meshiach comes to
her rescue, then will the fruit of the Spirit be born of her
branches. And the glory of Israel will be as the dew of heaven.
