Do you see the fig tree and all the trees fulfilling GOD’s words ?
Luk 21:29 And He spoke a parable to them: You see the fig tree and all the trees….”. CHRIST commanded us to see these trees as a sign of His return. We are to get branches of the trees for the feast GOD Has prepared in order to rejoice before the LORD. This has to be fulfilled spiritually and the Tree of Life, who is JESUS CHRIST THE LORD , and the true believers would be the other trees. Ezekiel prophesies about these trees and the Tree of Life, and their fruits and leaves, which is fulfilled in revelation. In order for the feast to be fulfilled spiritually, we must watch these trees bearing fruits and leaves. Wherever these spiritual trees are, there is the Holy Mountain of GOD.
Lev 23:39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.
Lev 23:40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.
Lev 23:41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.
boughs of goodly (H 1926) trees, }}}}…. Bough means fruits, per-ee'
From H6509; fruit (literally or figuratively): - bough, ([first-]) fruit ([-ful]), reward.
H6509 pârâh paw-raw'
A primitive root; to bear fruit (literally or figuratively): - bear, bring forth (fruit), (be, cause to be, make) fruitful, grow, increase.
Goodly means “ glorious, majesty, From H1921; magnificence, that is, ornament or splendor: - beauty, comeliness, excellency, glorious, glory, goodly, honour, majesty.
H1921 means ;… haw-dar'
A primitive root; to swell up (literally or figuratively, actively or passively); by implication to favor or honour, be high or proud: - countenance, crooked place, glorious, honour, put forth.
There fore, boughs of goodly trees means fruits of the glorious trees whom GOD Has planted. We must not look for our own glory, but GOD will glorify all of His sheep in due time, at the end of the feast, on the last great day, when the White Throne is placed and when the Book of Life is opened.
It also could mean favored first fruits or who ever is given the full reward, honor etc…. ( because it is only by grace and mercy of the LORD that the first fruits are born ) the full reward or the glory or honor would be given to the first fruits, only those who remain after shaking the heavens and the earth, ( Please read:.... Why would GOD shake heavens and earth ? ) whose faith tested and who would see the end of faith, which is salvation for the souls. ( 1 pe 1: 9 ). We know that GOD shook the heavens and the earth to test the faith ( those who are in heaven) and what remains, may be made more precious than gold. And Apostle Peter says, it is the ‘FAITH’ which is more precious than perishing gold. Because, without faith, it is impossible to please GOD and without faith, we would not have salvation for our souls…
1Pe_1:7 so that the proving of your faith, much more precious than perishing gold, but having been proved through fire, may be found to praise and honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ; }}}… so those who have faith after being shaken or testing, will be more precious than gold. And they only receive the revelation of JESUS CHRIST THE LORD. They are the ones who would be these goodly trees who would receive honor from CHRIST when He would be revealed. ( Col. 3: 1- 4).
‘revelation’ means ‘1) laying bear, making naked
2) a disclosure of truth, instruction
2a) concerning things before unknown
2b) used of events by which things or states or persons hitherto withdrawn from view are made visible to all
3) manifestation, appearance
From G601; disclosure: - appearing, coming, lighten, manifestation, be revealed, revelation..
CHRIST has to be revealed, as the Tree of Life would be offered in the end, and as Scripture says, ‘GOD will dwell with men’. Besides, as all the things WRITTEN must be fulfilled during the days of vengeance, thereafter there is nothing written about how the world would come to GOD etc. The new temple Ezekiel is to be a part of is written, and the new hearts would be given to make a new covenant, and the return of the captives…, with the living waters at the end of Ezekiel’s book being offered to heal all fish ( who has no ruler, who are GOD’s people now) but we do not know anything about the world and how and what would happen thereafter. The days of vengeance would not last for ever. What is now being fulfilled is ; the times of Gentiles which is the Day of The LORD ( Eze 30: 3) , or the witnesses work, One three and a half years to judge, the other to establish, then the heavens are shaken, then this appearance of CHRIST. After the heavens is shaken, these trees are now ready to bear goodly fruits and for all to see as CHRIST said” do you see the fig tree and all the trees”….
Luk 21:29 And He spoke a parable to them: You see the fig tree and all the trees.
The following Scripture says, we have not seen yet, but we love Him. …
1Pe 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
1Pe 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. }}}…. We know the stones of the Sanctuary who are the gold, the ministry lost their gold as lamentations says. And even after GOD gave us gold, our faith had to be tested… even though gold perished, our faith must not perish. Then, when tested, we receive the full reward and the honor and glory…. That is the time we receive salvation for our souls and receive honor and glory. ( Col. 3 : 1- 4 also says, when CHRIST shall appear in glory, those whose names are written in the book of life also will be revealed ). So this is yet to happen as CHRIST is still not yet revealed. This is why He gave these signs of the trees.
branches of palm trees, }}}… “palm” tree pictures righteousness… ( Psa 92:12) Ezra’s and Nehemiah’s time, after they came out of babylon, they were asked to make booths from these trees. CHRIST’s righteousness is in those who remained in faith. we know, the righteousness is revealed, when the judgments are on the earth.
(Isa_26:9 With my soul I desire You in the night; yea, with my spirit within me I diligently seek You. For when Your judgments are in the earth, those living in the world learn righteousness. ). All these trees are made as we can see, during the feast which is now, during the judgments. because judgment to Israel is to make them foolish, and the foolish ones are caused to see. Joh 9: 39. This is why the wife of CHRIST is given white linen after the judgments.
This is done during the FOT, when the second fruits are to be harvested. As PROVEN, the poor are the firstfruits. Now, this is why JESUS CHRIST said to know all trees, as you need to get the leaves from these spiritual trees for you to dwell in during the FOT, after you come out of Babylon. There only, you will be offered the free gift of GOD !!! And there only, you will know the SON… and your King !!!!
Neh 8:15 and that they should make heard and cause to pass the call in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth to the mountain and bring olive leaves and wild olive leaves, and myrtle leaves, and leaves of palm, and leaves of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written. }}}}… as it is written, Israel should gather these leaves to make the booths for them to dwell in. They must come to the Mountain GOD Has now prepared. But this is to be fulfilled spiritually…. so they must find the spiritual trees…even now, as they are in Babylon, ( Rev 13, 17, 18) to be delivered or coming out. As it is written, it will be fulfilled, because what CHRIST said is for our time, when the Son of Man Is to come .!
When JESUS CHRIST was brought by the multitude ( Gentiles, the little children. ) to Jerusalem…, they had “palm” branches…
Joh 12:13 took palm branches and went out to a meeting with Him, and they were crying out, Hosanna! "Being blessed is the One coming in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel”….}}}… this is the time the NAME of the LORD is to be made known. And the Name of the LORD is where the cherubim are… ( 2 Sa: 6: 2). The name of the LORD comes from the east to build the new temple as Eze 44- 47 says.
Joh 12:14 And finding an ass colt, Jesus sat on it, even as it had been written, }}}… the bound donkey as Gen. 49:10-12, at the time of Shiloh is Visiting… CHRIST came on the donkey to clean the house of prayer. Coming on the donkey is a prophecy for our times also. You can read more in “Donkey and the foolish nation ” …
Joh 12:15 "Do not fear," "daughter of Zion. Behold, your King comes" "sitting on" "the foal of an ass."; Zech. 9:9 …}}}…”Zion” is told by some others, “DO NOT FEAR”…. And your King is coming”. This is the time, the Gentiles, ( the multitude means Gentiles ) bring JESUS CHRIST to Jerusalem… as it is written… and now fulfilled. We are made righteous, and we carry palm branches and are saying to Jerusalem… to Behold your GOD… all these signs must be watched. Psa 74:9 says, they do not understand the signs of times as there are no longer any prophet. That is appointed by GOD, as HE HAS LEFT Zion.
The fact that they are having palm branches means they are given righteousness of CHRIST. Remember ‘righteousness’ is a GIFT. So CHRIST can give to any sinner at any time He wishes, as it is a FREE gift therefore WE CANNOT EARN IT. ( Rom 5:17- 18). With the righteousness , comes the JUSTIFICATION !!! So this multitude who brings CHRIST to Jerusalem, has the righteousness of CHRIST and are justified spiritually. This is why CHRIST’s own who rejected Him must watch this multitude who comes with palm branches who bring CHRIST to them. Those who were in Jerusalem asked ‘who is this’, when CHRIST was brought. That means the Jews did not recognise CHRIST.
Mat 21:9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
Mat 21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
Mat 21:11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. }}}… when He was brought TO Jerusalem, they asked ‘who is this’? It is so now too. The donkey or the foolish nation brings CHRIST ‘TO’ Jerusalem, who could not be gathered. And they introduced Him as the Prophet of Galilee. Both Nazareth and Galilee are cities of the Gentiles. ( Mat. 4: 15). Even though He was born first time in Bethlehem, second time He would come to Gentiles. ( Isa 11: 9-11).
Rev 7:9 After these things I saw, and behold, a great crowd which no one was able to number them, out of every nation, even tribes and peoples and tongues, standing in front of the throne, and before the Lamb, having been clothed with white robes, and in their hands palm branches. }}}… you see… this crowd is wearing WHITE robes… they are made righteous… and have palm branches.
Rev 7:10 And they cry with a great voice, saying, Salvation to our God sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb. !!!
The prophets prophesied, but they did not know this salvation which was given to Gentiles IN THE LAST TIME. ( 1 Pe 1: 5, 20).
Also notice… even though CHRIST said ‘can Son of Man find faith’ when He comes, these Gentiles to whom Apostle Peter wrote, have FAITH. and they are given salvation. ( Heb 9: 26-28).
1Pe 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
1Pe 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Pe 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. }}}}… also notice, it is the Spirit of ‘CHRIST’ which was in these prophets…. This also proves that the Father is CHRIST, Himself. These sufferings are called the sufferings of ‘CHRIST’. Testing our faith is like the sufferings of CHRIST, as we suffer for HIS NAME’S SAKE.
1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
1Pe 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
1Pe 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
1Pe 4:13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1Pe 4:14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. }}}… if we have the Spirit of GOD, then we must suffer for Him. This is to happen all the way in the very end. 1 pe 1:5, 20 talks about the last time salvation for us. Isa 56 talks about when the salvation is about to come, the Gentiles joined to the LORD and they were brought in to His Holy Mountain, altar, and House of Prayer. All these are done by CHRIST’s GRACE AND MERCY. Remember the Gentiles are to be the vessels of Mercy ??? so they would be these palm trees.
While CHRIST cannot find faith in Israel as He said many times, He Has given this faith to Gentiles. remember, faith too is a free gift.
Eph_2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: }}}.. because of CHRIST’s grace, He gave the Gentiles, the free gift of FAITH. So they are justified, and given righteousness, (THE WHITE ROBES) which are the palm branches, so they can bring CHRIST to Jerusalem, carrying their palm branches and singing in HIS NAME.
and the boughs of thick trees, }}}…. Following Scripture says to go to the MOUNT… that is where the Mountain of olives is, where CHRIST would come the second time. ( Isa 56, the Gentiles were brought in to Holy Mountain of GOD ). ( See "Glossary" for Galilee )
Neh 8:15 and that they should make heard and cause to pass the call in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth to the mountain and bring olive leaves and wild olive leaves, and myrtle leaves, and leaves of palm, and leaves of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written. }}}}… as it is written, Israel should gather these leaves to make the booths for them to dwell in. but this is to be fulfilled spiritually…. so they must find the spiritual trees…even now, as they are in Babylon, to be delivered. As it is written, it will be fulfilled.!
Peace and blessings are sent to Israel by the Gentiles, as PROVEN in Salvation prts 4 and 5. The Gentiles are the wild olive tree. That is the thick tree as above. The palm means righteousness , so the Gentiles are called to do the prophesied short work in righteousness, as Rom 9 says, and that is the time GOD Had mercy and grafted the wild olive tree , who are the Gentiles to the good olive tree which dried up.
GOD set fire to the green olive tree.
Jer 11:16 The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult He hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken….}}}… The green olive tree, who are Israel, is BURNED UP. NO GOODLY FRUITS. And out of the dry ground, the Gentiles came up…. Isa 56. They are the dry, eunuchs. They are now grafted. When the branches are broken up, it is the women who would set fire on them. Isa 27: 11.
And willows of the brook… }}… these willows are grown near the stream of water… and the following Scripture proves finally Jacob also will spring up like the willows.
Isa 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:
Isa 44:4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses. }}}… this is said to Jacob. He is said not to fear. The donkey brings CHRIST to tell Zion to not to fear, your King is coming”… that is when they have palm branches. At this time, Jacob’s people are THRISTY. Remember CHRIST called all of those who are thirsty to come to Him on the LAST DAY OF THE FEAST ??? so Now, the trees are all grown up, and the leaves have sprung forth and the fruits are ready and the river has come out of dry ground to water the thirsty ground !!!
And behemoth, a water monster also is covered by the willows. ( His tail moves like a ‘cedar’ shows he is a leader of the cedars, who is the ministry.
Job 40:22 The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.
Salvation part 6 proves from the Scripture, that these trees are a sign of GOD’s return. Taken from that writing;.
It is written in the Scripture that ; GOD’s first fruits will be dried up or shaken to fall as a fig tree. But, it is also prophesied that they will have peace and blessings again when GOD places the fruitful trees and when they “come under the fig” tree. JESUS CHRIST said “learn the parable of the fig-tree: when her branch is still tender and puts out leaves, you know that summer is near… And He spoke a parable to them: You see the fig tree and all the trees”. Where is this ‘branch” and ALL the trees? How do you understand these signs spiritually???
Isa 55:13 Instead of the thornbush, the fir tree shall come up; instead of the brier, the myrtle shall come up; and it shall be for a name to Jehovah, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off….}}}… GOD Has given Israel signs of these trees as and EVERLASTING SIGN.
Instead of the THORN… (they are the ministry ( see "Glossary") the fir or the fig tree comes out. Then, instead of the ‘brier’, the myrtle tree comes out. Thorns and briers pricks the people and they are to be burned.
And for what purpose they are made to come by GOD ???
It is for the NAME TO GOD !!! Should one not look for the NAME OF THE LORD ??? That is what the multitude did, having the palm branches. They sang to the ‘NAME OF THE LORD’ !!!
Since GOD, Himself made for HIS NAME, these myrtle tree and the fig tree would last for ever as long as GOD’s NAME lasts !!!
If anyone wants to look from where the NAME OF THE LORD COMES, then they must look for these trees. This is why CHRIST said to watch ALL the trees. He intended and prophesied that HE WOULD BRING forth these trees as A SIGN OF WHEN HIS NAME would come !!!!!! That is during these feasts, when you gather these leaves from these trees !!!!
It is for an EVERLASTING sign. Scripture says there are no longer any prophets in Israel ( Psa 74:9) and on the DAY OF VISITATION, when CHRIST comes, the prophet is a fool. ( Hos 9:7). The day of Visitation is His coming. If the prophet cannot read the sign of these trees to see from where LORD’s name is coming, how could he teach the people or bring them to GOD or teach the name of the LORD , or to find these trees ???
“palm” tree pictures righteousness… ( Psa 92:12)
“olive” symbolizes “Peace and prosperity” or blessings.
“Myrtle” tree mean “peace and blessings”.
“Fig” is a symbol of “peace and prosperity” (blessings). So the spiritual palm, olive, myrtle, and fig trees are now planted by GOD.
We also know the Cedars of Lebanon means the ministry, thorns and briers are the wicked ministers , the Vine, is JESUS CHRIST, etc….
Remember, ….In the Old Testament, the myrtle tree is used but in the New Testament, the fig tree is used ; to show that peace and blessings have come to Zion . ( peace comes like a flood from Gentiles. Isa 66: 12).
Psa 72 says, the EASTERN kings would bring presents to CHRIST, first and second times. Vs 11 onwards talks about the second time. That is the time, the NAME of the LORD is blessed…. That proves the multitude comes from east and are Gentiles. So they are these trees which bring peace and prosperity to Zion ! (remember poor are Gentiles. ( see "Glossary") .
Psa 72:13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
Psa 72:14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
Psa 72:15 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.
Psa 72:17 His name shall be forever; His name shall continue before the sun; and they shall bless themselves by Him; all nations shall call Him blessed.
Psa 72:18 Blessed is Jehovah God, the God of Israel, who alone does wonderful things.
.Psa 72:20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse have ended.
The following Scripture proves the prayers and praise for the NAME of the LORD is sent by Sheba when the WHOLE EARTH is to be filled with the GLORY OF THE LORD !!!!
Isa 55:13 Instead of the thornbush, the fir tree shall come up; instead of the brier, the myrtle shall come up; and it shall be for a name to Jehovah, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off…
Psa 72:15 And He shall live, and the gold of Sheba shall be given to Him; and prayer shall be made for Him continually; He shall bless Him all the day.
Psa 72:19 And blessed is His glorious name forever; and the whole earth is filled with His glory! Amen and amen!
So the multitude who praise the NAME OF THE LORD having palm branches are the ones coming from EAST, as the first time the kings of east brought presents to GOD. And at this time, as the whole earth fills with the praises and the name of the LORD, king David’s prayers ended. Psa 18: 43- 45 , king David said finally when his people turned as an enemy, the Gentiles will submit to him. this is fulfilled at CHRIST’s coming as Isa 11: 9 – 11 says to Gentiles, and as zech 12: 8. Then, the fallen Tabernacle of David would be erected.
Apostle Peter said the Gentiles will be visted by GOD , FIRST and take some Gentiles to GOD’S NAME…. and then the fallen Tabernacle of David would be erected once again…
Act 15:14 Simon recounted how even as at first God oversaw to take a people out from among the nations for His name.
Act 15:15 And with this agree the Words of the prophets, as it has been written,
Act 15:16 After these things "I" will return and "will build again the tabernacle of David which has fallen," "and I will build again the things which have been demolished," and I will set it up, Amos 9:11, 12
Act 15:17 so as the rest of men may seek the Lord, "even all the nations on whom My name has been called, says the Lord, who is doing all these things."
Then, later he wrote this to Gentiles in 1 Pete 1… note the high lighted… GOD planned to sanctify these Gentiles, to the obedience to the truth, believe in him, and they are to be an everlasting inheritance… but revealed only the LAST TIME, at CHRIST’S appearing, end of faith which is salvation is prophesied to them… by the power of GOD… !!! Notice, even though the prophets were inspired by the Spirit of CHRIST , and even though the angels like to know, that knowledge is given to these Gentiles as Apostle Peter wrote in Acts 15 , as above. !!!
“Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. …, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you…, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time…., That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:… Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: … Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. …., Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: …., Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. …. that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are NOW reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. …., Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; …,
“Fig” also means peace and blessings, or prosperity, same as myrtle. Apostle Peter wrote our GRACE and PEACE is to be multiplied. When JESUS CHRIST cursed the fig tree, the peace and blessings are withheld from the ministry and they became a curse to the whole earth.
The figs are used to heal,( 2 Kin 20:7) and it was the fig leaves which covered the nakedness of Adam and Eve… ( Gen. 3:7). Healing and the covering the naked ( Laodicean era ) has to be spiritually fulfilled by the spiritual fig leaves now as well . ( Eze 47: 12). In the beginning, Adam was naked and GOD covered with fig leaves. Now the Laodicean era is naked. GOD Has planted the fig tree so her nakedness of not wearing fine linen of righteousness will be covered.
You will see, that GOD commands to make booths from fig, olive and palm tree leaves, when coming out of Babylon. Now they are spiritually in Babylon, then they must make booths from these spiritual trees. All these trees are made ready during the feast, for the last great day.
Why Does GOD tells us to call others to come under the fig tree? The previous verse says it is done when GOD REMOVES THE INIQUITY from the land and from Joshua.
Zec 3:10 In that day, says Jehovah of Hosts, you shall call each man to his neighbor to sit under the vine and under the fig tree. …}}}… so there is a time GOD would cause all to call others to come under the fig tree.
The fig tree is a sign of JESUS CHRIST’s coming…in the ‘CLOUDS” to answer the earth… the heavens, clouds and fig tree works together.
Mat 24:30 And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the heavens. And then all the tribes of the land will wail. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and much glory. }}}… why do these tribes wail when CHRIST comes, instead of rejoicing ??? It is because, the Gentiles are the clouds… the Day of The LORD is theirs. ( Eze 30:3, Rev 11: 2- 3).
Mat 24:32 But learn the parable of the fig tree: When its branch becomes tender and it puts out leaves, you know that the summer is near; }}}…we know CHRIST comes to cover the nakedness of Zion, during the Laodicean era. At the same time rebuking her, He will give her white linen of righteousness to KNOW HIM. But they must look for these tender leaves of same. They will see as the LORD Has SPOKEN !!
Mat 24:33 so also you, when you see all these things, know that it is near at the doors…}}}… JESUS CHRIST comes in the clouds and will appear in the heavens. Now the real clouds are made after the shaking of the heaven and earth. Also the fig tree is made. That means the Son of Man should come, as they are SIGNS as CHRIST said to know His coming.
CHRIST showed the difference in the fig tree and the thorns…
JESUS CHRIST said “For each tree is known from its own fruit. For they do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. (Luke 6: 44 )
We all know that the ‘thorns’ are the ministry. ( see "Glossary"). Therefore, the FIGS cannot be from the ministry, as CHRIST says, ‘do not gather figs from thorns’… or do not gather figs from a corrupt ministry. Then, grapes are Israel. ( Isa 5). “Bramble bush’ means a ‘brier’. ( see "Glossary" for thorns and briers,… they are the evil ministry. ) Therefore, CHRIST says, Israel will not be gathered from briers or from an evil ministry .
This means ‘peace and prosperity’ will not come from thorns and briers who are the ministry. ( figs means peace and prosperity as written above).
Please read:.... Salvation part 4 and 5 to learn how and when peace and prosperity comes.
The green olive tree was set on fire, and the wild olive tree would be grafted in. Israel is cut off, the Gentiles are grafted in.
Jer 11:16 The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult He hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken….}}}… The green olive tree, who are Israel, is BURNED UP. NO GOODLY FRUITS.. Then the Gentiles being the wild olive tree is grafted in to bear fruits.
Rom_11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; }}}… now then, it is the Gentiles who are grafted in, has become the GREEN olive tree. That is when the two witnesses begin to tread down as zech 3, 4 and Rev 11 says. that is why the multitude bring CHRIST to Jerusalem.
We know, the feast is the time of the final harvest. Since the harvest failed as GOD showed it to the Gentiles who are far off, ( Jer 8: 19-20) they now have to glean as it was the law of Israel.
The harvest is done as OLIVE tree and not as grapes…
Isa 24:13 For it is thus in the midst of the land, among the peoples, it shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as gleanings when the grape harvest is completed. }}}…. So the grapes (Israel as we saw) had to be GLEANED… None in Israel is allowed to glean… that is a Law as PROVEN. The grape harvest , had to be gleaned to be completed. CHRIST said grapes or Israel could not be gathered by briers who are the ministry. Now, it has to be gleaned. But the harvest is like a shaking of an olive tree. Instead of grapes, the olives were harvested. Instead of Israel, the Gentiles are harvested….
CHRIST prophesied Israel will not harvest or reap to a gentile woman.
Mic 6:15 You shall sow, but you shall not reap. You shall tread the olive, but you shall not anoint with oil; and new wine, but shall not drink wine. }}}….You shall sow, but not reap. This is why CHRIST said to the Gentile woman, that Israel will sow, but others will enter in to their labors in time to harvest or reap. This is a prophecy for the Times of Gentiles, that they will reap and enter in to their labor…, in the last time.
Joh 4:36 And the one reaping receives reward, and gathers fruit to everlasting life, so that both the one sowing and the one reaping may rejoice together. }}}… so that BOTH may rejoice together. Could the ones who SOW rejoice with the ones who REAPS ?? It has to happen as the LORD Has spoken.
Joh 4:37 For in this the word is true, that another is the one sowing, and another the one reaping.
Joh 4:38 I sent you to reap what you have not labored over. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.
Notice what CHRIST says here ???... v 37… One sows, another reaps. But the one REAPING, receives the reward !!! The reward is the FRUIT TO EVERLASTING LIFE… !!!
So the Gentiles who did not sow but reap are to receive the everlasting life first.
Who are this ‘YOU’ ??? It is the ones who DID NOT sow. Then, it is the Gentiles who are the REAPERS !!! That is why CHRIST was talking to the gentile woman about the harvest. Also living waters, because for the fruits to come, the living waters also must be given which would be at the end of the feast !!!
‘you have entered in to their labor’… this means when the time to harvesting comes, we are to glean, and we will be the reapers who receives the everlasting life. Then, as Micah says above, we the Gentiles will be ANOINTED WITH OIL… and we would drink NEW WINE. !!! Do you see why CHRIST said to look for all the trees ??? The OLIVE tree for OIL, and the VINE to have new wine !!!!
When the wild olive tree or the Gentiles are grafted in and reaping, it is the time to have everlasting life…. !!!
“so that both the one sowing and the one reaping may rejoice together”… this happens at the time of the birth, or the harvest… and it is the Gentiles who would bring PEACE to her… and it is GOD who does it.
Isa 66:9 Shall … “I”… bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says Jehovah. Surely I cause birth, and hold back, says your God.
Isa 66:10 Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all who love her. Rejoice a rejoicing with her, all who mourn for her;
Isa 66:11 that you may suck and be satisfied with her comforting breasts; that you may milk out and delight yourselves with the fullness of her glory. }}}… Isa 60:16, 49:23 says it is the Gentiles who would give milk.
Isa 66:12 For so says Jehovah: Behold, I stretch out peace to her like a river, and glory of nations like an overflowing torrent. And you shall suck; you shall be carried on the side and be dandled on knees.
Isa 66:13 As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you. And you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
So if it is the Gentiles who comes as a river… when CHRIST sends PEACE, these trees are the Gentiles…. !!
GOD wanted to harvest the grapes, but Olives came instead…. That is why one should look for the olive tree….
Isa 17:6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree; two or three ripe olives in the top of the uppermost branch; four or five in the fruit tree branches, declares Jehovah God of Israel.} }}}… This verse says… when the grapes or the house of Israel is to be harvested , ….( it had to be gleaned…we know the Gentiles who glean ) , instead of the grapes …., there were two or three RIPE OLIVES !!
When harvesting the house of Israel…. which are the grapes… the OLIVES are harvested…. This is really funny if you do not look at it spiritually…. GOD wants to harvest the house of Israel… and He harvested Gentiles…, who are the olive now.
Even from the beginning, GOD Had planned to sanctify the Gentiles and give salvation and Everlasting life… in believing in the truth…( Act 13: 46- 48, 2 The 2: 13). Would GOD change His spoken words ??? Every creature… whom GOD Has created… is for good… when sanctified by the Word of GOD and prayer… ( 1 Ti 4: 4- 5). GOD HAD PLANNED TO SANCTIFY Gentiles even from the beginning to be in HEAVEN ruling Israel and to be the olive, fig and myrtle and palm trees.
King solomon’s temple had the oracle and the doors made by olive wood… which should be spiritually fulfill now.
1Ki 6:23 And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high.
1Ki 6:31 And for the entering of the oracle he made doors of olive tree: the lintel and side posts were a fifth part of the wall.
1Ki 6:32 The two doors also were of olive tree; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold, and spread gold upon the cherubims, and upon the palm trees.
1Ki 6:33 So also made he for the door of the temple posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall….}}}… The ‘oracle” is the “Holy of Holies”, or the innermost part of the Sanctuary. There are TWO cherubim, who are made of olive, picturing the spiritual two witnesses, who are the sons of fresh olive oil.
Two doors in the temple… made by olive tree. They are the ones who would sit beside CHRIST in His right and left. Therefore, as CHRIST said, it is a sign of the coming of the Son of Man….
GOD dwells between the Cherubs. And they are made of olive.
2Sa 6:2 And David arose, and went with all the people that were with him from Baale of Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God, whose name is called by the name of the LORD of hosts that dwelleth between the cherubims.
“Myrtle” means ‘peace and blessings’ same as fig . So GOD Has planted a myrtle tree instead of thorns as a sign of His return and Israel’s return from Babylon. No one can deny that there is so much confusion in GOD’s church today. There are many sister churches as Eze 16: 52 says, but all are in captivity, which means they do not worship GOD, but their idols. It is GOD, who sent her to Babylon Mic. 4: 10 , ( like Nebuchadnezzar ) , but when He wants to deliver them, this sign of the myrtle tree is given. Two gospels which was yesterday’s message showed how the Gentiles came out of Babylon. As we saw, In Nehemiah’s time also they used myrtle wood to make booths, which is a prophecy for us.

Hadassah,H1919 is Esther. H 1918 Hadas means myrtle. Esther’s name is Hadassah ( H1818). Clarke commentary says… “Hadassah” signifies a “myrtle” in Chaldee:
Now, the spiritual myrtle will act like Esther to save the Jews.
Myrtle tree….comes when GOD’s words will accomplish what He pleases. That is to lead Israel with peace, forgiving them.
Isa. 55 is about the time when GOD will remember the covenant…. and JESUS CHRIST’s second coming. At that time, GOD says, a nation which Israel do not know will run to them, because of GOD… and as He Has glorified Israel. ( v 5). That means she will KNOW HER GOD. ( Jer 9: 24). So this prophecy is to be fulfilled, when Zion is to know her GOD, as now. GOD also gives another sign of the ‘Myrtle tree” instead of thorns and briers.
V 12 … this is the time for Zion to be led out with Peace. The Prince of Peace Has come, and this myrtle tree is the sign of His return.
V 11 … so shall My Word be, which goes out of My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in what I sent it to do!...}}}… this is the time all things will be fulfilled… that is the days of vengeance…
Isa 55:13 Instead of the thornbush, the fir tree shall come up; instead of the brier, the myrtle shall come up; and it shall be for a name to Jehovah, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. …}}}… The thorns are the wicked leaders as PROVEN. So instead of wicked ministers, GOD will bring forth the myrtle tree, which would be an everlasting sign and a NAME FOR GOD . YOU MUST FIND THIS EVERLASTING SIGN ; the ‘MYRTLE” tree…
Zec 1:11 And they answered the Angel of Jehovah who stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sits still and is at rest. }}}… when the angel comes among the myrtle trees, it is time for the earth to REST. Because it is the time to offer the free gift of GOD and mercy. At that time GOD Has turned off the judgments. ( Zeph 3:15 and Has returned as He Is in the midst of Zion. V 12 shows, it is the poor and the weak who trust in GOD… so they are the myrtle tree ).
Zec 1:12 And the Angel of Jehovah answered and said, O Jehovah of Hosts, until when will You not have pity on Jerusalem, and on the cities of Judah, against which You have abhorred these seventy years? }}}… (the ‘cities of Judah, are the worshipers and not the real cities Jer 26:2) . About the ‘seventy years’ , in Babylon, we have written before. When the seventy years are over, GOD intervenes to save Zion as HE HAS PROPHESIED and sent the angel to stand at the myrtle tree which is a sign of GOD’s return. So this chapter is about our time, when the salvation comes to Zion. ( Please read:.... ‘Babylon’ Mystery part 5 ).
And now He says “ I HAVE RETURNED TO Jerusalem WITH COMPASSIONS”… MY HOUSE SHALL BE BUILT… (V 16) .. My cities shall …. “again”…… overflow with goodness… and He will comfort Zion and yet choose Jerusalem… v 17. This is why CHRIST said to look for ALL THE TREES !!!! It is time for the Son of Man to RETURN. To comfort ( from Gentiles Isa 66: 12, as written above) and Zech 6: 15 says, those who are FAR OFF shall build the temple.
The vine and fig tree prophecy
In Zech 3: 4… GOD clothes Joshua, after his INIQUITY is caused TO PASS FROM HIM. That is when he is made righteous, after forgiving him.
GOD SAYS ‘IN THAT DAY’,… when Joshua’s iniquity is to be forgiven and will be clothed with clean clothes, people will call each one to come under the vine and the fig tree.
Zec 3:10 In that day, says Jehovah of Hosts, you shall call each man to his neighbor to sit under the vine and under the fig tree.
Vine;… CHRIST , is the ‘VINE”…. Who are the workers of this Vine??? It is the GRAFTED FOOLISH NATION… the donkey… Gen. 49: 10- 12. They are the “Branch” as PROVEN, and who are working with CHRIST , as Shiloh Has come. The old vine was cut down, ( Isa. 5) and new branches have come as a result of grafting . Besides, when all Israel were taken in to Babylon, it is the ‘POOR” who are left to dress the vineyards… Jer 39:10. Also Zech 6:15, Isa. 61: 5. Zech 11:10-11, Isa. 14: 30, Zeph 3: 12 , Isa. 11: 10.
Zech 1: 20.. GOD Has returned with MERCY… so this has to happen after the judgments, other wise no mercy is needed …that is after all cities of Judah ( worshipers) were desolated. Israel must know where the Vine and the fig tree is, so they could obtain mercy and live.
Joe 2:21 Fear not, O land, be glad and rejoice, for Jehovah is doing great things.
Joe 2:22 Fear not, beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness grow green, for the tree bears its fruit, the fig tree and the vine give their strength.
Joe 2:23 Then be glad, sons of Zion, and rejoice in Jehovah your God. For He has given to you the early rain according to righteousness, and He will cause the rain to come down for you, the early rain and the latter rain in the first ….}}}… JESUS CHRIST, Himself Has come down as the rain… Hos 6: 3. , Psa 72: 6… this time He came to save and give Everlasting life… when He comes as the rain, all these trees will start to spring forth leaves and fruits. Now that CHRIST Has come down, we must look for the fruits and these leaves as He commanded.
Mic 4:4 But they shall each one sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and there shall be no trembling. For the mouth of Jehovah of Hosts has spoken. …}}}… GOD Has SPOKEN… you will not tremble anymore, but will clearly see everything. You will know where to find the olive, myrtle, palm and fig trees…and you will know that the poor you killed spiritually, are now raised up to pray for your rising…
Zec 3:10 In that day, says Jehovah of Hosts, you shall call each man to his neighbor to sit under the vine and under the fig tree.
Mat 24:32 But learn the parable of the fig tree: When its branch becomes tender and it puts out leaves, you know that the summer is near;
Blind man’s prophecy of seeing the trees in “Bethsaida”
“Bethsaida” means “house of fish”. Now, all are in the sea as fish having no ruler. Hab 1: 14 ….For You make man like the fish of the sea, like creeping things with no ruler over him’. “creepers’ are the ministry also. GOD makes man like the fish and creepers who has no ruler over them.
Mar 8:22 And He cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him
Mar 8:23 And He took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
Mar 8:24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. }}}… this is how the blind Laodiceans also will see the trees which are signs of CHRIST’s return.
We must watch ALL trees as CHRIST said above… as it will be fulfilled spiritually. And it is the time the river of living waters flow from the altar in the east, the Sanctuary and the throne of GOD. That time, ALL THE TREES ARE GROWN NEAR THIS RIVER…
Luk 21:29 And He spoke a parable to them: You see the fig tree and all the trees.
Eze 47:1 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
Eze 47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine. …}}}… meat means the finishing works. And the works of the Sanctuary , are done by the new ministry, who are likened to all these trees. All these trees will help GOD to finish the works or the harvest to be reaped. That is why they preach the gospel to FEAR The CREATOR as written above.
This river or the waters are the living waters which flows from the believers who are in the altar. These waters are issued from the EAST, SOUTH… of the altar. And there stands ALL trees… which heals. We must look for these trees spiritually, as it brings peace and prosperity.
Rev 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Rev_22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
Do you see the fig tree and all the trees fulfilling GOD’s words ??
May GOD opens the eyes of all the blind to see these trees as He commanded.
Amen and Amen !!!
