"And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, and reign over us."
" But the fig tree said unto them, Should I forsake my sweetness, and my good fruit, and go to be promoted over the trees?"
Judges 9: 10-11 KJV
The scripture in 'Judges' is in reference to many different kinds of trees to reign over and into concepts of dealing 'truly and sincerely" to others. However, focusing mainly on the fig trees... are trees known to provide sweetness.
Sweetness can be applied as an adjective, where it is also known as loving-kindness, gentle, delightful, and beautiful. In truth, no matter what tree we discuss as a Christian we choose to have Lord Jesus Christ ruler over us (Ephesians 1:21KJV). This truth leads us all to, " Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:29 NKJV).
By living a life as a Christian leads to his gentleness and his sweetness of his rest. And though trials happen stay encouraged that by fallowing the Lord Jesus leads into his rest as it is written, "Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it." (Hebrews 4:1 NIV).
Lord Jesus Christ, I say 'YES, be promoted over me!'
Let’s all progress ourselves in the knowledge of the Holy God Almighty and try to apply him in all our living by just believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you! ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Lord Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!
