    Was There Any Symbolic Meaning Behind Jesus Cursing The Fig Tree?

    The Matthew 21:19-21 cursing of the fig tree is symbolic of Yoshua's saying to the weeping girls [women is written] in Luke 23:28 "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children" because in less than 40 years Jerusalem was destroyed.  That is   what caused him to give us the Parable of the fig tree (Matthew 24:32-34) where he said at the budding of it a generation shallot pass before all things are fulfilled. Psalm 90:10 gives us 80 years maximum as the life span of man, thus, from the time Israel became a nation the second time (Isaiah 11:10-12) 80 should not have passed away before all prophecy are fulfilled and civilization is destroyed. The symbolic meaning is he used it to represent Israel's destruction around the common era (CE) year 70.

    You MUST "bear fruit" or of no use to Jesus!  Matthew 21:33-44 (another parable) (v42) Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is the head of the corner; this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in his eyes? (v43) Therefore I say unto you, The Kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and "given to a nation bringing forth the fruits of it."  What? He shall make the first last and the last first?  (Mk 9:35) What? He will make the rocks cry out? (Lk 19:40) What? He will get His WILL accomplished? (Is 55:11) What? Fruitless and He will take it from you?  Therefore, not "being fruitful" will cause The Kingdom of God "to be taken from you and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits of it."

    The same it is with the Kingdom of God in you!  Unfruitful, it will be taken from you!

      I much Agree the symbolism has most to do with the Time Christ arrives again for the Thousand Year Reign after Anti Christ is defeated an thrown into the Lake of Fire. Christ has often stated"Father" Rather we be Cold or Hot 4 the Gospel Truth

    Christ Came to a Fruitless Tree. Trees Symbolize Teachers and Elected Angels as in the Garden.  Many Trees were there; for nourishment [instruction]. Both Christ and "Satan the Anti-Christ" were there. From Satan the tree of "Good and Evil" The one who Knows and Practices Both; we were not to eat from. Least we would surely die. This is a "Warning" not a commandment as some proclaim It to be. Satan is the only Being at that Time Sentence to Death. GOD did not Command Adam and Eve Not to! He warned them and then Corrected their Failings as to cause them [their souls] and their offsprings to endure until the second coming. Which Christ reveals and Pays for All of Us who Accept the Gospel's Truth. Which Satan has since the Garden try to cause Its undoing. The truth of the Gospels Is of who we are and why we are Here. Its is reveal in the Parable of the Evil Husbandmen. The ones who stole the Vineyard from the One who planted IT.  The Correction of the Fallen Angels which we are experiencing  Everyone born of woman here upon Earth. We all are a Fallen Children of GOD the "CREATOR" of Both Heaven and Earth. We are the Ones who were cast from or drug out from Heaven by the other two thirds. Because of the WAR in Heaven. The War is of Powers, Principalities, and of Thrones as well.  This is what lead to Satan's sentence of Death for His Continued Refusal to Repent from His Attempt to rise above the Father GOD. The End time we be as it was in the Begin this beginning  Not from Noah's Time but the Time Before Noah; the KataBole  "The Great War In Heaven" The only War Of Heaven, The Last War Of Heaven,The First and The Last That will ever be allowed. Hence the Great Correction which we are expiring soon Very soon. Now I believe we are in the Last Age before Anti-Christ will return. So those of Us Known to be of GOD by the Believing and confessing of this belief; of the SON CHRIST The Lord Jesus as Our Saviour and Our Lord. We are the Fig Trees  which Bare fruit or Bare None! Those who who will be Blessed or will be Cursed. The Greatest Curse dealt from A Just GOD is To be Forgotten or eternal Death. If GOD forgets You you never were and will never be. As the Fat that drips from the roasting Lamb Poof up in smoke back from which you Came. All souls Belong to GOD and All Soul Live or Die as HE Desires. HE has stated That He Desire that None be Lost that All come Home To the Realm of His Remembrance. Back to the design that was. Alter by the War The Refusal 2 repent
