“ARE YOU BEING FRUITFUL OR A FIG TREE JUST OFFERING LEAVES?”


The Lord placed the following through the Holy Spirit. The cursing of the barren fig tree represents the state of hypocrites in general and teaches that Yeshua looks for the power of belief in those who profess it and the savour of it from those who have the show of it.

His just expectations from flourishing professors are often disappointed; he comes to many, seeking fruit, and finds leaves only.

A false profession commonly withers in this world, and it is the effect of Christ’s curse. The fig tree that had no fruit soon lost its leaves. This represents the state of many of our Assemblies today. Our Lord Jesus is finding nothing among them but leaves.

And after in the form of rejecting Christ, spiritual blindness and hardness of their hearts grew among them, till they were separated and at odds with each other over contentious scriptural issues the Lord is righteous about. Let us greatly fear the doom denounced on the barren fig tree.

This is my contention, why do we hear Yeshua in Matt 7:23, Luke 7:27 profess I never knew you. We must know whose alter we are bowing our knees at. This is additional evidence it could be the wrong alter. Remember Satan is subtle, and we are offering scriptural truth to identify his 1% subtle error. In the delusion, there will be an appearance (fig tree in full leaf, but bearing no fruit) of service, but when you look closely, you only recognize it as an appearance of the fruit, but none appears. You find proselytes like the Pharisees’.

I contend a portion of believers have forgotten the knowledge of this scripture that God will not have enmity before Him. James 4:4 KJV
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever, therefore, will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Any friendship with the world, however slight, should be recognized as a fig tree in full leaf but bearing no fruit and in time will in appearance be withered in fruitfulness. Only giving an appearance of being healthy (green leaves) but only capable of bearing proselytes, but never fruit. Understand a proselyte is a follower of the church and religious theology of that walk not necessarily connected to Yeshua, however, definitely connected and following the church.

Luke 13:25,27
[25] When once the master of the house is risen up and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
[27] But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

Could this be the fruit Yeshua is looking for? Sacred truth produces a spiritual change in the mind of men, which neither rain nor snow can make on the earth. It shall not return to the Lord without producing important effects.

If we take a special view of the church, we shall find what great things God has done and will do for it. The Jews shall come to their own land; this shall represent the blessings promised.

Gospel grace will make a great change in men. Delivered from the wrath to come, the converted sinner finds peace in his conscience; and love constrains him to devote himself to the service of his Redeemer. Instead of being profane, contentious, selfish, or sensual, behold him patient, humble, kind, and peaceable.

The hope of helping in such a work should urge us to spread the gospel of salvation. And do thou help us, O Spirit of all truth, to have such views of the fulness, freeness, and greatness of the rich mercy in Christ, as may remove from us all narrow views of sovereign grace.

And what tongue can tell the happiness of that hour, when the soul, oppressed by sin, is enabled freely to pour forth its sorrows before God, and to take hold of his covenanted mercy in Christ Jesus! Those that would speed in prayer must seek the Lord when, by his providence, he calls them to seek him and, by his Spirit, stirs them up to seek him. In a time of finding, when the heart is softened with grief and burdened with guilt; when all human refuge fails; when no rest can be found to the troubled mind, then it is that God applies the healing balm by his Spirit.

CLOSING PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I lay before your Throne the gratefulness of those who have prospered from your teachings. I ask Father at this time for your blessings to be upon them and further strengthen their resolve to bring their bodies into submission.

I lay a further plea Father for your wisdom to flow over them, Lord bringing further recognition of the journey ahead as we follow your Son Yeshua’s footsteps. I pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen.

Remember, I am only a humble servant of Yeshua doing His bidding as a messenger. In doing the research for this writing, I must admit I have been spiritually convicted and pray this message will do the same for you. Working out my Salvation has taken on a very new meaning and purpose. I want to walk on Isaiah’s “THE WAY OF HOLINESS.,” which is entirely up to me, so I submit this challenge to those who are reading these writings to desire the same place on the narrow road. God’s blessings and strength be with you all.

Ephesians 4:11-14,24 KJV
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; [12] For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: [13] Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: [14] That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; [24] And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
