***This is a new category. When I come upon a scripture; which no scripture is ever just added for filler; yet it clearly requires the Spirit to teach beyond it. I’ll post them. Please share what the Spirit of the Lord shares with you.***

Mark 11:12-14
The next day, as they came back from Beit-Anyah (Bethany), He felt hungry. Spotting in the distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if He could find anything on it. When He came up to it, He found nothing but leaves; for it wasn’t fig season. He said to it, “May no one ever eat from you again!” And His talmidim (disciples) heard what He said.

That’s it, placed in the middle of the donkey fetching and His ride through Jerusalem, and His clean out of the temple, this seemingly odd thing is written. Notice, it wasn’t fig season. The fig tree was not supposed to have fruit. Did Yeshua (Jesus) throw some kind of fit? Of course, we know different. Name a fit that doesn’t involve sin.

We cannot throw what we think into this. The only way these little adds to the word gets filled in for context and meaning is by the Spirit of God alone. Hint: is there anywhere else in scripture where a tree is mentioned where the fruit or lack of it offended God? The Spirit most often takes us deeper into other parts of God’s Word to teach. This is an amazing little piece of gold dropped in Mark here. But wait! Lets look further.

Mark 11:20-22
In the morning, as the talmidim passed by, they saw the fig tree withered all the way to its roots. Kefa (Peter) remembered and said to Yeshua (Jesus), “Rabbi! Look! The fig tree that you have cursed is all withered up! He responded. “Have the kind of trust that comes from God!”

He goes on to say the famous: “your trust (faith) can move mountains”. All part of the teaching in this passage but not what it usually gets taught like in church. Fruit is highly important to God, all the symbolic/parabolic language is highly significant! Notice He cursed, it dried up. Where else in scripture does this happen by God? Very important when studying to go and see the “pattern”, if you will. In fact, everything God did prior to Yeshua coming, Yeshua did while He was here! This is one of the signs of Messiah! To prove Yeshua was sent by God and was God. To dive into the study of this will take a while but I promise the rewards are beyond treasure. Remember think function of all things, and dysfunction. What is each passage pointing to in regard to function and dysfunction? Good, in Hebrew is defined as functional, bad or evil is defined as dysfunctional. God made everything to function a certain way, if diverged from such way, it will be dysfunctional. Hence sin/evil, anything that doesn’t operate according to the Engineers plans. All fruit has a specific and designed function. What makes this passage so interesting is that it wasn’t “doing anything wrong”. It wasn’t fig season. Which begs the ultimate question: why did Yeshua curse it?

Time to treasure hunt! 🙂

2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it will be evident that such overwhelming power comes from God and not from us.

♡ Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ♡

    OK if you’re asking us to throw in our 2 cents here….this comes to mind, Luke 13:6 The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree

    6And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. 7And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’ 8And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. 9Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down”…

      Thank you so much! Can’t say what a blessing it is to see you here! I love your input! So. ..what do you see as the connection to Yeshua and the cursing of the fig with this?
      I love this study, what winners the Word has to offer, eh?
      Blessings to you!

        Well I think in this parable it was more a lesson for the farmer…it had been three years that Yeshua had looked for fruit on the tree, yet found none. So the farmer offers to fertilize it and dig around it. So that perhaps it may grow. Personally I see this as a connection to “American Christians” that sit in pews and bare no fruit. Not being judgemental for a long time I was one of those…but then the Word of God began to sink into my soul and my life began to change. My desire changed. I wanted to be more like Yeshua\Jesus.

          Ahhh, yes! What delightful insight! I,too, was very much what I call a dutiful follower. Not much more than conviction moved me. Having been raised in the Christian church, I was stymied what was missing. Then I broke down and said “Lord Yeshua if You don’t become real ands teach me Yourself, I fear my tree shall wither!”
          Wow! Over 12 years ago, and I am hesitant to call what I did before a walk with God compared to now. It absolutely drove me into the Word and the Word into me, whom He is! I am adopted/grafted into the Line of Judah, but I’ll say I’m not sure anyone will truly appreciate WHO Yeshua is until they realize His Hebrew roots are far more important than us gentiles realize. This, too, became a true joy of His nature He showed me. When we study the Word from the original language it truly does come alive! (Not undermining the value of the Greek, mind you). God created every language, but Hebrew was the first “Let there be Light!” He does everything with meticulous purpose, He amazed me. No longer a stick follower, I run to meet Him, with conviction, passion, and delight!
          May He continue to call us all more to Himself in these last days/hours!
          Shalom to you!
          And thank you so much for your feedback and thoughts, I cherish them!
