Background Part #1

The Cursed Fig Tree
(Mat 21:18-20KJV) Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!

1. The tree is peculiar ,in that it produces fruit blossoms before it produces leaves.This being the case , we would expect to find fruit on the tree when it is in full leaf.

2. Mark gives us another version of the incident , he states “Mark 11:13 “for the time of the figs was not yet. ” .This incident occurred in the first week of April , which was to early for new leaves or fruit. Jesus knowing this , and seeing leaves on the tree , naturally expected to find some of last years fruit, and when he found none he ” cursed ” the fig tree for its deceptive appearance.

3. The lesson learned is simple, the Jews were leafy in profession , but bore no fruit . Jesus then cursed them for their hypocrisy, when he found no fruit on the tree of their national life. Matt 23: 1-23

Background Part #2

The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree
(Luke 13:6-9 KJV) He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

1.) Here the Fig Tree is the Jewish Nation , Israel. The vineyard represents the land of Palestine, which Israel sits upon.

2.)The Owner of the Fig Tree was God , Who came in the person of his son Jesus Christ.

3.) For the three years of Jesus’ ministry, fruit was sought from the Jewish nation. None was found, therefore he decided to cut the tree down A.D.30 .

4.)The tree was not immediately destroyed, intercession was made for it (Grace – building of the Church)and its time was lengthened out 40 years.

5.)Then came the AXE MAN The Roman General TITUS who besieged Jerusalem in 70A.D. , Israel was then cut down and cast into the FIELD of the world.

6.)However the AXE was only laid at the Root of the tree , the root itself remained, which is the land of PALESTINE . This was made clear , by John the Baptist :

(Luke 3:7-9 KJV) Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

The Fig Tree Sign

(Mat 24:32-34 KJV) Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

1.) It is clear from this parable that Israel would REVIVE, or spring up again from the root PALESTINE. This happened in 1948.

2.) The Present Israeli nation will reach a point where it will ” PUTTETH FORTH LEAVES” , when it does , then we will have the Fig tree sign.

3.) In answering the threefold question asked by the apostles :

(Mat 24:3 KJV) And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

Jesus Mentioned three signs :

1.) The appearance of the “Abomination of Desolation” , the Antichrist in a rebuilt temple Proclaiming himself to be God (Daniel 9:27 , II Thessalonians 2).

2.) The “Sign of the Son of Man”, which is Christ coming in a cloud . (Acts 1:9 , Matt 24:30)

3.) The ” Fig Tree Sign ” , the regathering of the Jews as a nation , and putting forth leaves.

4.) According to the Fig Tree Sign , Israel would bear leaves before Fruit. The Fruit is a converted Israel and occurs as a result of the ” Abomination ” , in the middle of the tribulation period.

The Putting forth of Leaves

When Israel reaches the point when it puts forth leaves, then we will have the ” Fig Tree Sign ” and Christs return will be soon. This sign will come to maturity , during the tribulation period.

With the REVIVAL of the “fig tree” ,that is, Israel becoming a nation in 1948. It is becoming more and more pronounced that through “ZIONISM” and “ANTI-SEMITISM” we can see what the “PUTTING FORTH OF LEAVES WILL BE “.

ZIONISM , which is the longing of Jews to return to their own land and the establishment of a Jewish state. There are three phases , “RELIGIOUS”,”ECONOMIC” and “POLITICAL”.

THE “RELIGIOUS” PHASE is the revival of faith in the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies of restoration and Jewish worship in a rebuilt Temple.

The “ECONOMIC” PHASE is Israel at the lead of the Nations.

The “POLITICAL” PHASE is the revival of their national hope of a restored nation under the leadership of the long promised messiah which provides them “PEACE AND SAFETY”

As we can easily see, these things will come to pass after the second coming of Christ in their true form.

The Leaves therefore will be ” FALSE ZIONISM ” brought forth by “ANTI-SEMITISM”

In simple language , it is false religious, economic and political UNIFICATION of the Israeli state and the :

Palestinian State

(Rev 13:11 KJV) And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

The Palestinian State is the tool through which SATAN will “Trick” the Jewish state into accepting FALSE ZIONISM.
ANTI-SEMITISM in broad terms is the “Nations”serving themselves of Israel. It is a type of yoke hung around the neck. It is a type of Egyptian bondage.

(Jer 30:8 KJV) For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

Lets Make a few comparisons (try right clicking and zooming in on the article)

(Jer 30:5 KJV) For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice
of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.

FALSE ZIONISM

TRUE ZIONISM

There will be a Tribulation Temple
(Rev 11:1-2)

There will be a Millennium Temple
(Ezekiel 40)

Israel will lead the nations in the Tribulation
(Ezekiel 38:11-12)

Israel will Lead the nations in the
Millennium (Dan 7:14)

False messiah will rule over Israel
(Dan 11:41)

True Messiah will rule over Israel
(Rev 19:15)

When examining the so called “Peace Process” it is very evident that the future “Palestinian” state is the TOOL being used to trick Israel into the COVENANT that the Antichrist will make at the start of the tribulation period.

A word that completely covers the sign of the fig tree can be summed up in one word, FALSE PEACE. Therefore, the peace process can be called the false peace process .

ECONOMIC – In analyzing the economic trickery that will take place, which will give the appearance of true zionism . We only have to look back at the first century. In the first century Israel was under the jurisdiction of the Roman Empire ,economically , politically and religiously. Since Israel will not experience true zionism until the return of Jesus Christ, we must expect the same type of structure. For Israel must remain under the yoke of the nations until then.

Since Israel was a Roman province in the first century , we must look forward to the same to occur in the tribulation.That is Israel will probably become a member of the EUROPEAN UNION. European Union plans call for up to 20 nations to become full members. Of course CAESAR or the ” ANTICHRIST ” will be their king.

POLITICAL – Of course CAESAR or the ” ANTICHRIST ” will be their king. Shortly after the COVENANT is made. See THE SECOND SEAL . That is also another interesting subject , when analyzing the SEAL judgments we can see how the Antichrist will take religious, political then economic power , for in them we can see the coming false zionism.

RElIGIOUS – This is the final phase of false zionism is brought forth. In Jerusalem we have the CONFLICT OF OPPOSITES, that being Muslims and Jews. The Jews want a New Temple , the Palestinians want a New State. There is no doubt that the covenant will involve a COMPROMISE between the two. The Jews will get a temple , the Palestinians will get a State. This is where the Antichrist steps in ,the deal on Jerusalem will involve a “THIRD PARTY” , the Antichrist , who will control the RELIGIOUS sovereignty over the city. At first it will seem harmless , but later on it will prove to be devastating to Israel. It will be an attempt to unite the RELIGIONS of the world under the control of the “HOLY SEE”.

The PALESTINIAN State will be greatly important , since the ANTICHRIST will be the RELIGIOUS Caesar over the city,meaning that he will be representative of the JEWISH and CHRISTIAN religions, he will be able to make decisions on “FAITH”. For the Antichrist will be a JEW AND A CHRISTIAN.(DAN 11:38)

However he will need a Representative for the MUSLIMS or a GOVERNOR over the city , like a Pontius Pilate. This person will be the False Prophet who will rise up out of the yet future palestinian state. We know that the false Zionism will climax when the Abomination of desolation occurs, because that is the time when spiritual blindness will be lifted from the Jews and they will know that Jesus Christ is the true Messiah.It is at that time that we can see Religious , Economic and Political unification brought all together by the false prophet in JERUSALEM. We can see this in Revelation chapter 13.

(Rev 13:14-17 KJV) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.(RELIGIOUS)

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.(POLITICAL)

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
(ECONOMIC)

THE TWO HORNS

(Rev 13:11 KJV) And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

It is not hard at our present time to figure out where the false prophet will come from . It is said that he will have two horns. In the book of Daniel we are told that HORNS are representative of Kings. Now if the False prophet has two horns , he must therefore have two kings under his authority. This can be easily seen with what will occur when the Palestinians become a state. Looking at a map it is not difficult to discern where the two horns will be, for the Palestinian State will be DIVIDED into three parts. First the CAPITAL will be JERUSALEM, that’s where the False Prophet will REIGN from. Second , One HORN is on the Eastern side of Jerusalem , called the WEST BANK. Third , the other HORN is on the western side of Jerusalem , it is called the GAZA STRIP.

We are living in the time of compromise, and modern Christianity has become a part of it. Modern mainstream evangelicals, formerly known as Protestants, have compromised Bible prophecy in the name of ecumenics. They simply believe that there is nothing more that can be learned from the Bible . I was taught that the false prophet would come from the Vatican, never could the Antichrist come from the Vatican they teach. So they pick what they think is the lesser of the two evils and say the false prophet will come from Rome. This they do with absolutely no sort of doctrinal background while trashing the great reformers like Martin Luther and others who taught that the Antichrist would rise up out of the HOLY SEE.

Then there is another rising movement that the Antichrist is Prince Charles . This is for all of you who may have listened to TEXE MARRS , who had a man on his program who is trying to convince the world that Price Charles is the Antichrist. Simple logic will prevail to exclude him from being the Antichrist. That stuff sounds good but defies basic biblical principles.

1. Prince Charles carries the ” Protestant ” title ” The head of the Church of England ” .

2. Prince Charles has defame the title with his immorality.

3. The Roman Catholic Church wants Protestantism under her authority.

4. The Antichrist will not desire women (DAN 11:37), this means he will be celibate “like Christ” , also , Satan will incarnate himself in him, therefore if he , the Antichrist sleeps with women he would have HEIRS. Judas , whom the Devil incarnated himself in, had no heirs and neither will the Antichrist. (link to be here).

5. The Antichrist will devour that Nation and seize the title ” Head of the Church of England ” , for the Holy See believes that it is rightfully theirs. (link to be here)
