Even in figs, NO matter your shape or color still useful for the Lord's use!

 Treasure truth about Figs in the bible represent many character factors of a person from being sweet meaning gentle in speech or mannerisms to being intertwined together we build and flourish as one.


There is another perspective that no matter the shape and color of the person they can still be useful for the Lord's use. RKN is still bearing fruit (Luke 6:44) by the truth and the reality of figs which is one of God’s chosen fruits. Figs bear in many shapes and color from small to very large sizes and also varies in color and yet all is still beneficial and enjoyable.


    These facts can be applied to people that no matter their shape or color they are still useful for the Lord’s use also. No one is a waist or a ‘nobody’, there is something beneficial about everyone for the Lord somehow whether to make his power known (Romans 9:22) to blessing someone (Romans 12:14), to healing someone, etc.… Only the person can define themselves what service they choose to be for the Lord maybe it’s a mix of multiple different figs. Therefore, not bearing false testimony (Matthew 19:18) by the truth we are all saved (1 Timothy 2:3-4).

Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!

"“The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars.”

Isaiah 9:10 NIV

     In reference to 'fig tree bearing'....What if you're not cursed and dried up for not bearing fruit (Mark  11:12-14) but instead completely cut off!


     Scripture advises to replace the fig with cedar trees! Although fig tree and its fruit are really used to signify many truths in the bible but the scenario of not having any fig 'fruit' is real too!


     Use the cedar trees instead and still be apart of the body of Christ! Cedar trees were known for making homes known as a 'house of cedar' (2 Samuel 7:7, 1 Kings 4:33), also "... beautiful branches overshadowing the forest" (Ezekiel 31: 3 KJV).  


    The fig might be cut off but the land is still paid for by Lord Jesus Christ, so plant cedar trees instead!  "For ye are bought with a price: therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." (1 Corinthians 6:20 KJV).


     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)!

   The fig tree pictured above is a 'fig tree cut down to make way...'...This fig tree has been cut down on the corner of Nebo Rd and Shakespeare St. Picture: Tony Martin

"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!'

Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!

" Then the stars of the sky fell to the earth like green figs falling from a tree shaken by a strong wind."

Revelations  6:13 NLT

 Much scriptures seems to be intimidating to read, however; when a person is sincerely wanting to live in the way of Lord Jesus Christ than why should one believe some of the writings are to condemn permanently? The writing that 'stars fell to the earth like figs from a tree from a strong wind" is intimidating scripture to read. Someone might see stars literally falling from the sky and think its a sign from the bible than the terror starts to form. As a christian it takes discernment to understand the world as it evolves around us while each of us is living our own daily living.


    One can apply the scripture symbolically in reference to faith too.  No one wants to fall in their built, confidence, boldness, or in the mind when being shaken in our faith. When a trial that comes to test our faith as Christians we must try our best to continue in our reactions governed by the epistle of Christ. "In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him." (Ephesians 3:16 KJV)


    And for any reason if someone does stumble or sins, 'like a fig falling from a tree with the wind', note the story of Apostle Peter who lied 3x close to Lord Jesus when he was bleeding needing someone to help him the most and Apostle Peter feared and did no rescue (Luke 22:54-62). But Lord Jesus told him ahead of time, " But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren." (Luke 22:32 KJV). And now Apostle Peter is one layer in the New Jerusalem Church (Revelations 21:14 KJV).


    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!

 The Mistletoe fig is one of many the Holy Father made! - Caron G.

February 2023

"For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes"


Luke 6: 44 KJV

     When starting a journey we all face trials and test that form our new minds with Jesus Christ as our foundation. Eventually we are all tested and the outcome of our builts are apparent if we are still standing! "Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.  If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward." (1 Corinthians 3:13-15 KJV).  This leads into our sonship, our own personal relationship, with God the Holy Father. "... Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward" (Genesis 15: 1 KJV).


    These truth lead into bearing fruit of your work...how do we show the manifest of your work if nothing has been brought forth.  Each person has their own skills and abilities! Singing, teaching, dancing, and writing are a few skills and abilities that present your fruit for the Lord and help strengthen others too (1 Corinthians 14:26 NLT). "That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God..." (Colossians 1: 10 KJV).


Seek to bear fruit of your skills and abilities!

Continuing proving your love to the Lord Jesus Christ and that God is still living in you!


    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!

'Fig Tree'

TOGETHER WE ARE ONE

 "so we, who are many, are [nevertheless just] one body in Christ, and individually [we are] parts one of another [mutually dependent on each other]."

Romans 12:5 AMP  

  Starting a journey to Christ can lead into a very overwhelming scenario, where it is perceived as if the world hates you (John 15:18 KJV)! How do we keep believing and living in a life of Christ even after all the mess of dark kingdom warfare? Fig trees comes into mind that with 'many' in the same mind, together we can build into a great tree and provide shade to others. This is a great concept to apply for someone starting a journey into Christ. " For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20 NKJV). Therefore, try joining churches, groups or gatherings with others that share in the same ideas or concepts. Working together to provide a common goal accomplished.


    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!
