[89f]   The Fig Trees of Matthew24 Mark13 Luke21, and of Matthew21 Mark11, and of Luke13

A fig tree should not be planted in a vineyard. It should be planted in a fig orchard. So this is a 1NC fig tree in a 2NC vineyard or a 2NC fig tree in a 1NC vineyard. The Fig tree is either the Laodicean 2NC saints or the Laodicean 1NC reserves. Jesus abandoned the Watchtower 1NC vineyard on 2005Sivan10. But it was still his vineyard. It just got stolen by Satan. So we have two interpretations here...

6 Then he went on to tell this parable: A certain one had a fig-tree [The Laodicean 1NC saints of the 2nd part of the 2nd presence] planted in his vineyard [The sons of the 4EC. A 2NC church. Grapes are sons of the 2NC here. Figs are sons of the 1NC, The Watchtower ceased to be Jesus' vineyard on 2005Sivan10. The Fig Tree was planted on 2006Iyyar10, when the first 1NC reserve was water baptised into Laodicea. Jesus is not said to have planted the tree. The 1NC tree just appeared in a 2NC vineyard rather than a fig orchard (1NC church) where one might expect to find it], and he came looking for fruit [understandings or experiences - any form of communication] on it, and found none [A fig sapling tree takes around 4 years before it produces any figs. But this was a fig tree when planted. This tree was not feeding anyone who came to it - it merely fed itself] [aorist. Punctiliar occurrence, one off occurrence, simple occurrence. This tree was never found to have fruit in this vineyard].
7
Then he said to the vinedresser [AOL or AOP], 'Here it is 3 years [Secular/Agricultural years from 2006Tishri1-2009Tishri1, the first 3 secular years of the 2nd presence. We use agricultural years because the parable is about a fig tree] that I am looking for fruit on this fig-tree, and find none [no research fruit]. Cut it out! Why really should it keep the earth useless? [It keeps the LWs useless by denying them the Christ so that we cannot build the temple - having no foundation]
8
In reply he said to him, 'Lord, let it alone also this year [2009Tishri1-2010Tishri1] until I dig around it [dig into the scriptures that relate to its existence] and put on manure [The LWs discovered Laodicea on 2008Chislev6 and started putting things relevant to that church on the site shortly thereafter];
9
and if then it produces fruit into the [year specified above], fine [mellon], but if not, you [not the vinedresser, but the master, Jesus] shall cut it out/down/off [it will be cut out/off of the vineyard in the 5th year from 2010Tishri1 to 2011Tishri1. Well it was cut off, losing its water baptism on 2011Elul10. It will be cut out from the Watchtower in the agricultural year from 2016Tishri1-2017Tishri1. Both possible ambiguous meanings of ekkoptw are used] (Luke 13).'

6 Then he went on to tell this parable: A certain one had a fig-tree [Laodicea] planted in his vineyard [The Watchtower. The Watchtower is even today Jesus' vineyard - he planted it. But it has been stolen by Satan], and he came looking for fruit [water baptised brothers] on it, and found none [A fig tree takes around 4 years before it produces any figs. This tree was not feeding anyone who came to it - it merely fed itself] [aorist. Punctiliar occurrence, one off occurrence, simple occurrence. This tree was never found to have fruit in this vineyard].
7
Then he said to the vinedresser [GNS2, not the fig dresser which is AOL], 'Here it is 3 years [Sacred years after the second presence ended on 2011Elul10, when Laodicea lost its water baptism - we presently calculate. So Jesus would have found some water baptized fruits in the sacred year from 2011Nisan1-2012Nisan1. Therefore he looked for fruits and found no ICC fruit in the sacred years starting 2012Nisan1, 2013Nisan1 and 2014Nisan1. We use sacred years because the fruit is sacred in the greater meaning] that I am looking for fruit on this fig-tree, and find none [no ICC fruit]. Cut it out! Why really should it keep the earth useless?'
8
In reply he said to him, 'Lord, let it alone also this year [2015Nisan1-2016Nisan1] until I dig around it [dig into the scriptures that relate to its existence] and put on manure [cattle dung, crap understandings from the cattle, the rank and file congregation];
9
and if then it produces fruit into the [year specified above], fine [mellon], but if not, you [not the vinedresser, but the master, Jesus] shall cut it out/down/off [it will be cut out/off of the vineyard in the 5th year from 2016Nisan1 to 2017Nisan1. Well it will be cut out in this year. Both possible ambiguous meanings of ekkoptw are used] (Luke 13).'

9 And if it bear fruit, [well]: and if not, [then] after that thou shalt cut it down. (Luke 13 KJV)
9 and [see] if it indeed makes fruit. But if not, in the future you may cut it down. (Luke 13 GLT)
9 and if indeed it may bear fruit -- ;and if not so, thereafter thou shalt cut it off.' (Luke 13 YLT)
9 and if indeed it should make fruit into the being about (to be) if but not indeed, you shall cut out it [ekkoptw]. (Luke 13 KIT)

CNC = 12 (2 threads)
INC = Fig-tree, Vineyard, Fruit, Vinedresser, Years, Earth, Lord, Manure = 8
Fig-tree (2), Fruit (3), Year (2)

9 Indeed the axe is already in position as the root of the trees, every tree therefore not producing fine fruit, is to be cut down and thrown into the fire (Luke 3).

This scripture shows there are to be several true churches that become false!

The Fig Tree of Matthew 21 and Mark 11 that Jesus cursed

13 Christ by purchase released us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse instead of us, because it is written: Accursed is every man hanged upon a stake (Galatians 3).

This means that Jesus provided escape from the law for people who put faith in him and were baptised in water into the Christian church. For Paul explains (everything actually as usual) that a man who is under law is under law until he dies (unless he is released by the Christ).

Paul explains (everything actually as usual) that a man who is under law is under law until he dies (unless he is released by the Christ)...

1 Can it be that you do not know, brothers, for I am speaking to those who know law, that the Law is master over a man as long as he lives?
2 For instance, a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he is alive; but if her husband dies, she is discharged from the law of her husband (Romans 7).


So the only way to get out of it is through Jesus or actually if someone burns down the temple of Moses as the Roman General Titus did in 70 CE.

This does not mean that sacrifices at the temple of Moses after Jesus' death were false worship. They just had no effect. We know they were not false worship because Paul had one done for himself a long time after Jesus died in Acts 21...

26 Then Paul took the men along the next day and cleansed himself ceremonially with them and went into the temple, to give notice of the days to be fulfilled for the ceremonial cleansing, until the offering should be presented for each one of them (Acts 21).


But the fig tree account tells us more. For the tree dried up from the roots and withered. This is plainly a loss of water baptism. For roots suck up water. Now it is quite a deep understanding that obeying the law actually gave Jews the equivalent of a water baptism. I will not go into here but the Paul does say this...

2 All got baptised into Moses by means of the cloud and the sea  (1Corinthians 10)

Obeying the law of Moses kept that water baptism going for each person under law. Now forgiveness under the law of Moses was achieved through making sacrifices. But Jesus obviously made the big human and actually angelic sacrifice that all the animal sacrifices of the law pointed to. So there really was no point in making any further animal sacrifices after Jesus had made his. In other words, Jesus' death ended the power of sacrifices under the law of Moses. In other words Jesus death ended the ability of animal sacrifices to maintain ones baptism into Moses. In other words Jesus' death dried up the Fig Tree of the Law, as your tutor said, which symbolically represents ending its water baptism capability.

But there is more. For after any true Christian church loses its water baptising capability it will eventually lose its true religion status. This works in a slightly different way in the case of the temple of Moses. After Jesus removed its water baptism power it merely became an obligation for all Jews in order that their consciences were not defiled. The priesthood was actually irrelevant. So if you were a Jew and did not convert to Christianity then you were obliged to obey the law of Moses (since you were essentially born into it) until you died or the temple was destroyed. If you deliberately failed to do this you would not be saved. If you kept the law you would not necessarily be saved unless you followed your conscience reasonably in all matters (this being the test on everyone who never finds a true church). So it did not help you to get saved at all, it only hindered you. It was basically a curse on all Jews who did not become Christians after Jesus died until the Romans destroyed the temple.

This is where the moving of mountains of verse 23 comes in. Mountains oversee the land around them literally. The depict administrations which oversee congregations. Jesus was saying to his disciples that if they have faith they will lift up the Jewish administration and detach it from the land (show that it no longer is a part of the true field of God, the true church) and throw it into the sea (show that it has no authority over the land/the true congregation anymore). The first century Christians used to do that for the Jews. That is how they converted them!

4 And the fading flower of its decoration of beauty that is upon the head of the fertile valley must become like the early fig before summer, [Hebrew summer ran from Nisan16 (firstfuits) to Tishri15 (Booths)] that, when the seer sees it, while it is yet in his palm, he swallows it down (Isaiah 28). 

Literal Interpretation [The Fig Tree is the administration of the law of Moses]

17 And leaving them behind he went outside the city to Bethany and passed the night there.
18 While returning to the city early in the morning, he got hungry.
19 And he caught sight of a fig tree [temple administration of the Law of Moses] by the road [beside the way, the first true Christian church was called the way. Same Greek word as road - odoV] and went to it, but he found nothing on it except leaves only [Those clean under law, i.e. sons of the ICC, but no saints, no sons of the JAC], and he said to it: Let no fruit [saints] come from you anymore forever. And the fig tree withered instantly [lost its water baptism (ICC) capability. In other words the sacrifices in the temple ceased to provide any forgiveness].
20 But when the disciples saw this, they wondered, saying: How is it that the fig tree withered instantly?
21 In answer Jesus said to them: Truly I say to you, If only you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what I did to the fig tree [show people that the power of the law to forgive sin had ended since Caiaphas (the high priest who sentenced Jesus to death by the Romans) effectively sacrificing Jesus, was the end of the cleansing power of the Aaronic priesthood], but also if you say to this mountain [the administration of the law of Moses], 'Be lifted up and cast into the sea,' it will happen [be examined and be shown to be no part of God's people any more - that occurred with the conversion of Cornelius in 36Tishri. His conversion was the end of the Land and Circumcision Covenant which gave the Jews exclusivity in being God's people. The sea means no longer a true church, no longer God's people, no longer a promised land, no longer a land at all in fact] (Matthew 21).

12 The next day, when they had come out from Bethany, he became hungry.
13 And from a distance he caught sight of a fig tree that had leaves, and he went to see whether he would perhaps find something on it. But, on coming to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season of figs [Fig season is summer. But fig trees do also produce early figs - see Isaiah 28:4. Symbolically these figs would be Christians who appear before FDS1 is appointed over all the saints on 33Nisan16, and before the season of Christian harvest began with Pentecost 33Sivan5]
14 So, in response, he said to it: Let no one eat fruit from you anymore forever. And his disciples were listening.
15 Now they came to Jerusalem. There he entered into the temple and started to throw out those selling and buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves;
16 and he would not let anyone carry a utensil through the temple,
17 but he kept teaching and saying: Is it not written, 'My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations'? But you have made it a cave of robbers.
18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard it, and they began to seek how to destroy him; for they were in fear of him, for all the crowd was continually being astounded at his teaching.
19 And when it became late in the day, they would go out of the city.
20 But when they were passing by early in the morning, they saw the fig tree already withered up from the roots.
21 So Peter, remembering it, said to him: Rabbi, see! the fig tree that you cursed [The Aaronic priesthood was cursed when it condemned Jesus to an accursed death - see Galatians 3:13 at the top of this section. Cursed priesthoods have no cleansing power. So Aaron lost his ICC and 1AC capabilities. The sons of Aaron became a false priesthood. But it was not a sin to obey the law after Jesus death. The law is holy forever, although the penalties are no longer in force! The Aaronic priesthood ceased being holy on 33Nisan14] has withered up.
22 And in reply Jesus said to them: Have faith in God.
23 Truly I say to you that whoever tells this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but has faith that what he says is going to occur, he will have it so.
24 This is why I tell you, All the things you pray and ask for have faith that you have practically received, and you will have them (Mark 11).

Word Symbolic Interpretations [The Fig Tree is the administration of a 1NC church in a presence]

17 And leaving them behind he went outside the city to Bethany and passed the night there.
18 While returning to the city early in the morning, he got hungry.
19 And he caught sight of a fig tree [true church administration] upon the road [woops - would have been better to have been in the road, the way, the path - this tree is becoming irrelevant] and went to it, but he found nothing on it except leaves only [leaves respond to the light, the light is Jesus, these are water baptised church members who are not fruit and not figs. They are water baptised because the tree has not dried up yet!], and he said to it: Let no fruit come from you anymore forever [this church will produce no more saints from the day when Jesus takes away its water baptism. Saints are the main fruit of any true church]. And the fig tree withered instantly/at that time [paracrhma]
20 But when the disciples saw this [actually the next day as we see from Mark11], they wondered, saying: How is it that the fig tree withered instantly/at that time [during the last 24 hours]?
21 In answer Jesus said to them: Truly I say to you, If only you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what I did to the fig tree [you will condemn a once true church as having lost its water baptism], but also if you say to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and cast into the sea,' it will happen [you will do more than this. You will tell that church in advance that it will become a false church, which is the step after losing its water baptism, and it will occur - not necessarily when you say, but it will occur! Mountains oversee the land around them. They picture administrations which oversee congregations which are the land God cultivates. The sea is the mass of faithless mankind - no spiritual structure].
22 And all the things you ask in prayer, having faith, you will receive (Matthew 21)

12 The next day, when they had come out from Bethany, he became hungry.
13 And from a distance he caught sight of a fig tree that had leaves, and he went to see whether he would perhaps find something on it. But, on coming to it, he found nothing but leaves [water baptised non saints], for it was not the season of figs [Figs are First New Covenant (1NC) saints. A particular type of fruit but not the only type, since there are other types of tree. There are other saints too. Earthly Lord Covenant (ELC), Heavenly Lord Covenant (HLC) and Second New Covenant (2NC) to be precise] [So no figs are present, this is an absence of first new covenant saints who are Jesus' wife, his flesh, his presence. So Jesus was absent, not presence at the time this church lost its water baptism]
14 So, in response, he said to it: Let no one eat fruit [spiritual food - the other meaning of fruit from a church. Saints and understandings are both spiritual fruit of a true church] from you anymore forever [The true church administration will provide no further fruit for consumption at all forever. This does not mean that people who are not supposed to be in the true church administration will provide food in the future. It means those appointed to feed stop feeding. The tree that God planted has stopped providing fruit]. And his disciples were listening.
15 Now they came to Jerusalem. There he entered into the temple and started to throw out those selling and buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves;
16 and he would not let anyone carry a utensil through the temple,
17 but he kept teaching and saying: Is it not written, 'My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations'? But you have made it a cave of robbers.
18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard it, and they began to seek how to destroy him; for they were in fear of him, for all the crowd was continually being astounded at his teaching.
19 And when it became late in the day, they would go out of the city.
20 But when they were passing by early in the morning, they saw the fig tree already withered up from the roots.
21 So Peter, remembering it, said to him: Rabbi, see! the fig tree that you cursed has withered up [A true church has now lost its water baptism - I can see it!].
22 And in reply Jesus said to them: Have faith in God.
23 Truly I say to you [plural] that whoever tells this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but has faith that what he says is going to occur, he will have it so [lifting up a mountain is examining it. A Mountain oversees the land literally. Mountains therefore symbolise administrations that oversee congregations, which are the land, God's field under cultivation. Throwing a mountain into the sea is detaching it from the land. This is the step after losing water baptism for any true church. It occurs when the church becomes a false church. A false church does not oversee the land of God, the promised land the congregation of the true church. It is dumped in the sea of faithless mankind, overseeing them]
24 This is why I tell you, All the things you pray and ask for have faith that you have practically received, and you will have them (Mark 11)

The fig tree in Matthew withered instantly and the one in Mark withered up from the roots, which absorb water. So in both cases there is a dehydration. And in scriptural terms that is a loss of water baptism. Figs and Grapes are both sold in dried form. They both are used by the bible to picture saints. The church of Matthew is the Roman Catholic church which produced no saints at all in any covenant after it lost its water baptism in 75Nisan, 46 years of John2 after John the baptist started baptising in 29Nisan, 6 months before Jesus was baptised on 29Tishri10. The Roman Catholic church was the corruption of the first true Christian church by the Roman state. It continued to have saints within it (including Peter) after 75Nisan. But produced no more itself. All future saints were chosen from outside that church - not withstanding their picturesque attempts to baptise the physically dead in holy spirit with beatification etc.

The church of Mark is the Watchtower. This church lost all its 1NC saints entirely by the time it lost its water baptism on 2001Heshvan10/17. So the true church administration, the 1NC saints, the faithful slave, stopped feeding entirely forever at that time. However false 1NC saints and perhaps some true 1NC reserves continue feeding whilst it was a true church until 2005Sivan10. And they keep feeding for 12 full baskets of fragments later until 2017Iyyar11-Sivan10. In fact they stop feeding 1NC reserves when the disfellowshipped and disassociated ones finish entering into Zoar to recline there on 2017Iyyar10-12 the Passover entry day for the 3rd Watchtower Passover. So their feeding on 1NC reserves must end before the end of 2018Sivan10. So the 3rd Watchtower Passover must occur by 2017Iyyar14 at the latest. Also since the baskets of fragments could feed anybody, and there could have been a 13th unfilled basket and since they become a bundle of weeds for burning which lasts until the end, the end of their feeding must come before 2018Sivan10. It does. The end for Adam comes on 2018Nisan14, and for Zoar on 2018Iyyar14 and for unsealed Abraham and re-Adam and the first death and the Watchtower on 2018Sivan14. So evidently they stop feeding at least 4 days before they all go to Gehenna.

The faith that moves mountains is that faith that trusts God more even than a true church. For all true churches are run by men who do not always listen to the guidance of God. Many men even in true churches love the glory of men more than the glory of God. But those who esteem the reproaches of the Christ to be worth more than all the treasures of Egypt, those who are pure in heart, see more than a true church. They see the God who appointed it. And he will show them where his next true church, founded by the next one of his four cornerstones will be. The previous true church administration being thrown into the sea. The next true church administration, the next mountain, is raised up. That is how faith moves mountains.

In Revelation chapter 6 we read...

12 And I saw when he opened the 6th seal, and a great earthquake occurred; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the entire moon became as blood,
13
and the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as when a fig tree shaken by a high wind casts its unripe figs [Figs that miss the harvest because they are not yet ready] (Revelation 6).

Here figs are equated to stars of the heaven. And stars of the heaven are saints, Abraham's heavenly seed through Jacob. By this we mean sons of the Jacobian Angelic Covenant (JAC), not genetic sons of Jacob. But you cannot be a genetic son of Jacob without being also a genetic son of Isaac his father. Now Isaac was the mediator of the Isaaic Church Covenant (ICC), the covenant which covers every true church and all true worship after it was made. So all the saints, the sons of the JAC must be water baptised into a true church in order to be sons also of the ICC. Because the genetics of the 3 fathers of Israel (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) mirror the Abrahamic salvation covenants for the Kingdom of God. For more on these covenants - see intro28 and see intro29.

The Fig Tree of Matthew 24

32 Now from the fig tree learn the parable/illustration [He does not say learn from the parable of the fig tree. He says view the fig tree as a parable]. When the newly-created branch itself is yet tender and it puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near [the trunk is Elijah, the branches are the apostles, the leaves are the water baptised members].
33 Likewise also you, when you see all these things [not the signs of the times above but the young tender branch and the new leaves] know that he/it [Jesus, the 1NC reserves or the spiritual harvest season] is near at/upon the doors [to two temples, two harvest storehouses. That of the 2NC and that of the 1NC, both inside the LWs. Perhaps there are 3 actually 4 doors for him, at the 3/4 new Passovers on 2016VeAdar14 and 2017Nisan14 and 2017Iyyar14 (no that is one door opened 3x). Perhaps there is a door for the descended 1NC princes and another for the 1NC reserves? Or perhaps there is a door into the autonomous congregation and another into the congregation run by FDS4? He waits outside those doors to be water baptised upon the Passover entry day] (Matthew 24).

So Jesus is near at the doors when the church starts growing, which growth involves new apostles/branches and new brothers/leaves.

28 Now from the fig tree learn the parable/illustration: When the newly-created branch itself is yet tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near.
29 Likewise also you, when you see these things happening, know that he is near, at the doors (Mark 13).

29 With that he spoke an illustration to them: Note the fig tree and all the other trees:
30 When they are already in the bud, by observing it you know for yourselves that now the summer is near.
31 In this way you also, when you see these things occurring, know that the kingdom of God is near (Luke 21).
