The Fig Tree

“Now learn this parable from the fig tree”
(Matthew 24:32)

Chapter 24 of Matthew does not
Make for pleasant reading

The ‘abomination of desolation’
(Matthew 24:15)

The ‘tribulation of those days’
(Matthew 24:29)

“you do not know what hour
your Lord is coming”
(Matthew 24:42)

“There shall be weeping and
gnashing of teeth”
(Matthew 24:51)

But Jesus spoke about the Fig Tree
In a parable to help explain
The meaning of these things:

“When its branch has already become
tender and puts forth leaves,
you know that summer is near.”
(Matthew 24:32)

Anyone who works with plants
Be they flowers or vegetables
Or whatever…

Understands that the plant
Tells you about the seasons

Now, plants DO NOT speak
And yet if you are aware of the
Language of the plant…
You are prepared for what is about
To come…

In a similar way Jesus is talking
To His Disciples and is telling them
To be ready…
And to “read” the signs of the times

We too need to be ready for what
Is coming upon the earth
And not be caught sleeping…

Read…
Pray… and
Consider…
These things
Pay attention to what is going
On around us today
In our world
And be READY…

The Lord is coming back SOON
For His Bride – the Church
