Now learn a parable from the fig-tree.
Now learn a parable from the fig-tree.
Mt 21 – Those called in Christ as was ancient Israel, but who bear no fruit are cursed by God and destroyed. They have no salvation.
Mt 24 – Christ came when He had prepared exactly the place and time for His advent. 2,000 years ago in ancient
– which has nothing to do with the Devil’s imitation modern IsraHell. Israel
Mk 11 – The Jews’ Perfidy and Deicide is judged by Christ. We are to forgive men who trespass against us – that does not mean to condone their sins anymore than ours, sins are never to be condoned.
Mk 13 – No one but the Holy Trinity knows the time of the Second Coming of Christ.
Lk 13 – The Lord God waits until a given plant, that is a given group of believers, has come to the maturity of either bearing fruit or not – if not, the Lord will cut it down, we don’t have to do that. We would get it wrong. But we are to exhort with the warnings given us by God in scripture and bolstered by the Church Fathers when we see heresy, blasphemy, apostasy and wrongdoing. When those things get to a fever pitch, as they have done, we are to separate from them.
Lk 21 – Be faithful to Christ, because we will all stand before Him to be judged – and He will judge without partiality. Those on His left hand will go to hell for eternity and those on His right hand will go into the heavenly kingdom for eternity.
Jn 1 – Ancient
Israel was the
type of the fig-tree, but only the type, the fulfillment is the of which Our Lord Jesus Christ is
the King. Kingdom of God
Jm 3 – There is no combination of Good and evil. It is always one or the other. Only Devilish lies seek to combine them.
Apoc 6 – Judgment will come on a sudden for those who have not watched for Our Lord Jesus Christ. It will be fearful beyond anything they can imagine and without escape nor mitigation nor forgiveness – they have chosen hell at that point and it will be theirs forever with all the unimaginable horror and suffering and pain that will be part of it.
19 *And seeing a fig-tree by the wayside, he came to it: and found nothing on it but leaves only, and he saith to it: May no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And immediately the fig-tree withered away.
20 *And the disciples seeing it, wondered, saying: How is it presently withered away?
21 And Jesus answering, said to them: Amen, I say to you, if you shall have faith, and stagger not, not only this of the fig-tree shall you do, but also if you shall say to this mountain, Take up and cast thyself into the sea, it shall be done.
32 Now learn a parable from the fig-tree: when its branch is now tender, and the leaves come forth, you know that summer is nigh.
33 So also you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Amen, I say to you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
35 *Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
20 And when they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig-tree dried up from the roots.
21 And Peter remembering, said to him: Rabbi, behold the fig-tree, which thou cursedst, is withered away.
22 And Jesus answering, saith to them: *Have the faith of God.
23 Amen, I say to you, that whosoever shall say to this mountain: Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not stagger in his heart, but believe, that whatsoever he saith shall be done: it shall be done for him.
24 *Therefore, I say unto you, all things, whatsoever you ask when ye pray, believe that you shall receive, and they shall come unto you.
25 *And when you shall stand to pray, forgive, if you have any thing against any man, that your Father also, who is in heaven, may forgive you your sins.
26 But if you will not forgive, neither will your Father, who is in heaven, forgive you your sins.
28 Now of the fig-tree learn ye a parable. When the branch thereof is now tender, and the leaves are come forth, you know that summer is very near:
29 So you also, when you shall see these things come to pass, know ye that it is very nigh, even at the doors.
30 Amen, I say to you, that this generation shall not pass, until all these things be done.
31 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
32 But of that day or hour no man knoweth, neither the Angels in heaven, nor the Son [in the Greek: the Son, except of His nature with the Father], but the Father.
6 He spoke also this parable: A certain man had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it, and found none.
7 And he said to the tiller of the vineyard: Behold these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig-tree, and I find none. Cut it done, therefore; why doth it take up the ground?
8 But he answering, said to him: Lord, let it alone this year also, until I dig about it, and dung it.
9 And if happily it bear fruit: but if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
28 *But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads: because your redemption is at hand.
29 And he spoke to them a similitude: See the fig-tree, and all the trees:
30 When they now shoot forth their fruit, you know that summer is nigh.
31 So you also, when you shall see these things come to pass, know that the reign of God is at hand.
32 Amen, I say to you, this generation shall not pass away, till all things be fulfilled.
33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest perhaps your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and the cares of this life: and that day come upon you suddenly.
35 For as a snare it shall come upon all that sit upon the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch ye, therefore, praying at all times, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are to come, and to stand before the Son of Man.
37 And in the day-time he was teaching in the temple: but at night going out, he abode in the mount that is called Olivet.
38 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, to hear him.
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him: and he saith of him; Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile.
48 Nathanael said to him: Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered, and said to him: Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig-tree, I saw thee.
49 Nathanael answered him, and said: Rabbi, thou art the Son of God, thou art the king of
50 Jesus answered, and said to him: Because I said to thee, I saw thee under the fig-tree, thou believest: greater things than these shalt thou see.
51 And he saith to him: Amen, amen, I say to you, you shall see the heaven opened, and the Angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
The evils of the tongue. Of the difference between the earthly and heavenly wisdom.
1 Be *not many masters, my brethren, knowing that you receive the greater judgment.
2 For in many things we all offend. If any man offend not in word; the same is a perfect man. He is able also with a bridle to lead about the whole body.
3 For if we put bits into the mouths of horses that they may obey us, and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also ships, whereas they are great, and are driven by strong winds, yet are they turned about with a small helm, whithersoever the force of the governor willeth.
5 Even so the tongue is indeed a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold how small a fire kindleth a great wood.
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is placed among our members, which defileth the whole body, and inflameth the wheel of our nature, being set on fire by hell.
7 For every nature of beasts and of birds, and of serpents, and of the rest, is tamed, and hath been tamed by mankind:
8 But the tongue no man can tame: a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
9 By it we bless God and the Father; and by it we curse men, who are made after the likeness of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth through the same passage sweet and bitter water?
12 Can the fig-tree, my brethren, bear grapes, or the vine, figs? So neither can the salt water yield sweet.
13 Who is a wise man, and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew, by a good conversation, his work in the meekness of wisdom.
14 But if you have bitter zeal, and there be contentions in your hearts: glory not, and be not liars against the truth.
15 For this is not wisdom, descending from above: but earthly, sensual, diabolical.
16 For where envying and contention is, there is inconstancy, and every evil work.
17 But the wisdom which is from above, first indeed is chaste, then peaceable, modest, easy to be persuaded, consenting to the good, full of mercy, and good fruits, without judging, without dissimulation.
18 And the fruit of justice is sown in peace, to them that make peace.
1: Matt. xxiii. 8.
What followed upon the opening six of the seals.
1 And I saw that the Lamb had opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four animals, saying, as with a voice of thunder: Come, and see.
2 And I saw: and behold a white horse, and he that sat on him had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he went forth conquering that he might conquer.
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second animal, saying: Come, and see.
4 And another red horse went forth: and it was given to him who sat thereon, to take away peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another, and to him was given a great sword.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third animal, saying: Come, and see. And behold a black horse, and he that sat on him had a pair of scales in his hand.
6 And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four animals, saying: Two pounds of wheat for a penny, and thrice two pounds of barley for a penny, and hurt not the wine, and oil.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth animal, saying: Come, and see.
8 And behold a pale horse, and he that sat upon him, his name was death, and hell followed after him; and power was given to him over the four parts of the earth, to kill with sword, with famine, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord, (holy and true) dost thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11 And white robes were given, to every one of them one: and it was said to them, that they should rest yet for a little time, till their fellow servants, and their brethren, who were to be slain even as they, should be filled up.
12 And I saw, when he had opened the sixth seal: and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair: and the whole moon became as blood:
13 And the stars from heaven fell upon the earth, as the fig-tree casteth its green figs when it is shaken by a great wind:
Verse 13: Untimely, in other words unexpected is the sudden judgment described here.
14 And the heaven withdrew as a book rolled up: and every mountain, and the islands were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and the tribunes, and the rich men, and the strong men, and every bond-man, and every free-man hid themselves in the dens, and in the rocks of mountains:
16 And they say to the mountains and to the rocks: *Fall upon us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth upon the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of their wrath is come: and who shall be able to stand?
