SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES
And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. In response Jesus said to it, "Let no one eat fruit from you ever again." Mark 11:13,14
Jesus was going into Jerusalem and when He saw the money changers at the temple and those who bought and sold, He drove them out and overturned their tables and said to them, "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations, but you have made it a den of thieves."
The fig tree is a symbol of Israel and maybe Jesus, knowing the heart of His people cursed it as He found no fruit on it! So it is today in the churches there is little fruit and many are chasing after money and the things of the world with little devotion to God! What would Jesus say to us today if He visited our services and found no fruit?
The next day they passed by the fig tree and saw that it was dried up from the roots and they marveled at the sight of it and that Jesus had cursed it! Jesus said to them, "Have Faith in God."
"For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.' "Mark 11:23
