I have discuss this topic with RAM and Rose about the fig tree more than a year ago, please see:
To recap what was discussed:
Matthew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh. ye, when ye shall see all these things know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Let's look at the BIble definitions:
- fig trees means Jewish nation (fig = Jews, tree = nation)
-budding and blossoming i.e. "branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves".
-Budding seems to mean growth or development in stature, power, status
-Blossoming seems to mean progressing or maturing
-Blossomed means matured
-Branch seems to mean days
-leaves nourished the tree with nutrition that enables it to grow thus means the essentials for growth of the nations i.e. economy, industries, nation buildings. Leaves are for healing of nations (Revelation)= ?nation building.
-summer means June to August in the northern hemisphere
Genesis 40:9 So the chief cupbearer told Joseph his dream. He said to him, "In my dream I saw a vine in front of me, 10 and on the vine were three branches. As soon as it budded, it blossomed, and its clusters ripened into grapes. 11 Pharaoh's cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes, squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup and put the cup in his hand."
*12 "This is what it means," Joseph said to him. "The three branches are three days. 13 Within three days Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your position, and you will put Pharaoh's cup in his hand, just as you used to do when you were his cupbearer. 14 But when all goes well with you, remember me and show me kindness; mention me to Pharaoh and get me out of this prison. 15 For I was forcibly carried off from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing to deserve being put in a dungeon."
Numbers 17:*1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Speak to the Israelites and get twelve staffs from them, one from the leader of each of their ancestral tribes. Write the name of each man on his staff. 3 On the staff of Levi write Aaron's name, for there must be one staff for the head of each ancestral tribe. 4 Place them in the Tent of Meeting in front of the Testimony, where I meet with you. 5 The staff belonging to the man I choose will sprout, and I will rid myself of this constant grumbling against you by the Israelites."......8 The next day Moses entered the Tent of the Testimony and saw that Aaron's staff, which represented the house of Levi, had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds. 9 Then Moses brought out all the staffs from the LORD's presence to all the Israelites. They looked at them, and each man took his own staff.
Isaiah 27:6 In days to come Jacob will take root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit.
And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.”
They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”
down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
So in Matthew 24 :32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; (means learn of Israel). When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, (When the days that Israel is budding and blossoming in growth of status economy, industries, nationhood etc.)ye know that summer is nigh (everyone will know that the harvest of the elect is near. Note that Israel's independence day is in May which is near summertime). 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things (the signs that Israel is budding and blossoming i.e. growing as a nation), know that it is near, even at the doors (know that the end of creation is near). 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation (those born during Israel's independence) shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Looking at Luke 21:29 He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. (look at Israel and all the nations fighting for their independence at that time)30 When they sprout leaves, (when they start their nation buildings) you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near (maturity of human and nation development is near). 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
May God blessed us with His knowledge. Amen.
