The False Dispensationalists, Dispensationalism

 
Note this firstly that the term Evangelical or Dispensationalists are words never found in the Bible.. anointed is the word rather that should be placed here..
.
(Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. ..
.
The Evangelical Dispensationalists do also still tend to be trying to earn a great spot in heaven by their own good works, saving others, following the teaching of men, an evil spirit, and not the Holy Spirit rather.. http://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2008/11/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus/
.
Now about the Evangelicals, Plymouth Brethren,  Baptists  rather still ignorant so called Christians I find it so absurd that these people still tend to not know what the Bible teaches, they believe their churches false teachings on healing, Zionism, Dispensationalism,  tithing etc. 
.
Now had most fundamentals evangelicals actually read their Bibles, known the Bible instead of wrongfully listening to the so called Bible teachers, false preachers, bad teachers they would not have easily deceived to neglect the present full empowerment available of all believers by the Holy Spirit…

.

Read the scriptures for you think that doing so you will gain eternal life, but many people now do read the Bible and never got eternal life, cause they omitted the spirit of Jesus Christ actual teachings and the Bible”s as well

(Mat 5:9 KJV) Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
,
(Psa 133:1 KJV) Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; 3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
,
(Psa 134:1 KJV) . Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD.2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. 3 The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
,

(Acts 5:42 KJV) And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

,

Acts 3:6 KJV) Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see.

,

2 Tim 3:5 KJV Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

.

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas. some not too well hidden even. Sadly some people they tend present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness for they tend to falsely have a hidden agenda, one of which is that often they want to get rich, and ?or live in the kingdom off self, to be falsely personally worshipped and still live in sin too.

.

Is 2:22 Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?

,

(Gal 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Jer 17:5 Thus says the Lord: Cursed [with great evil] is the strong man who trusts in {and} relies on frail man, making weak [human] flesh his arm, and whose mind {and} heart turn aside from the Lord. :6 For he shall be like a shrub {or} a person naked and destitute in the desert; and he shall not see any good come, but shall dwell in the parched places in the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.:7 [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, {and} relies on the Lord, and whose hope {and} confidence the Lord is. 8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see {and} fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious {and} full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit. 9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly perverse {and} corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it [perceive, understand, be acquainted with his own heart and mind]? 10 I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. 11 Like the partridge that gathers a brood which she did not hatch {and} sits on eggs which she has not laid, so is he who gets riches by unjust means {and} not by right. He will leave them, {or} they will leave him, in the midst of his days, and at his end he will be a fool.

.

Yes many Jews today are struggling for all of the Land of Israel that no longer has been Biblically Promised to them.. Time also more Christians read their Bible instead of the fictional books, bad commentaries now too.
.
Very clearly and simply too there is not one verse in the New Testament that states now even after the Roman destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, and their scattering of the Nation of Israel worldwide, of a promise of the Jews restoration of the land of Israel, or even the city of Jerusalem being freed, and Jerusalem itself will only will be free after the Second Coming, the return of Jesus Christ for his bride, the Church, the true Christians.
.
.
The sole one verse that is falsely often referred too Luke 21:24 as a supposed proof of the restoration of the Jews, Israel clearly still has nothing to do with the restoration of Israel. Do now Read the Bible for yourself now in the actual context, even in the context of the the future New Heaven and New Earth, New Jerusalem solely forthcoming to all of the true Christian believers now as well
.
Luke 21:20 But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know {and} understand that its desolation has come near. Luke 21:21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside [the city] get out of it, and let not those who are out in the country come into it; Luke 21:22 For those are days of vengeance [of rendering full justice or satisfaction], that all things that are written may be fulfilled. Luke 21:23 Alas for those who are pregnant and for those who have babies which they are nursing in those days! For great misery {and} anguish {and} distress shall be upon the land and indignation {and} punishment {and} retribution upon this people. Luke 21:24 They will fall by the mouth {and} the edge of the sword and will be led away as captives to {and} among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (completed). Luke 21:25 And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth [there will be] distress (trouble and anguish) of nations in bewilderment {and} perplexity [without resources, left wanting, embarrassed, in doubt, not knowing which way to turn] at the roaring (the echo) of the tossing of the sea, Luke 21:26 Men swooning away {or} expiring with fear {and} dread {and} apprehension and expectation of the things that are coming on the world; for the [very] powers of the heavens will be shaken {and} caused to totter. Luke 21:27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with great (transcendent and overwhelming) power and [all His kingly] glory (majesty and splendor). Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to occur, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption (deliverance) is drawing near. Luke 21:29 And He told them a parable: Look at the fig tree and all the trees; Luke 21:30 When they put forth their buds {and} come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and perceive {and} know that summer is already near. Luke 21:31 Even so, when you see these things taking place, understand {and} know that the kingdom of God is at hand. Luke 21:32 Truly I tell you, this generation (those living at that definite period of time) will not perish {and} pass away until all has taken place. Luke 21:33 The sky and the earth (the universe, the world) will pass away, but My words will not pass away.
.
 
(Rev 21:1 KJV) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 3 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
.

So if any Jewish or gentile person wants to be in the new Jerusalem they have to accept Jesus Christ as their lord and personal savior rather still too. For there is no other name given unto men by which they can escape from eternal separation from God, Hell.

.

This is not the only place of much too many that Dispensationalists are wrong in now too..

.

It is because of such False supposedly Christian  people as You will find that the 19th century leader of the evangelical, Britain-based Plymouth Brethren was the most important figure in the development of the false “premillennial dispensationalism” – or, if you like choices, “dispensational premillennialism.”  and also   C.I.  Scofield that we now have withing only the last 300 years the new terms “Dispensationalism,” “Messianic Judaism”,  “Judaeo-Christianity,” and “Christian-Zionism.” But, more importantly, there now exists the false, heretical theological conditions necessary to allow Christians who are predisposed to do so, to support the outrages of World Jewry and Zionism. Thus, the Ahrimanic-inspired constructs of Pharisaism (Judaism) and its political arm, Zionism (by their rehabilitation and treatment by such men as Scofield) have corrupted Christianity. In other words, they are part of the terrible movement to Judaise Christianity; part of the deception that has it that Western Christian Civilisation has a “Judaeo-Christian Heritage” and that Christendom was, in fact, Judaeo-Christianity. A position most of the early Church Fathers and all of the Apostles would contest just as surely Christ Himself would contest. What is the message of the Christian Zionist? Simply stated it is this Every act taken by Israel is orchestrated by God, and should be condoned, supported, and even praised by the rest of us.

“Never mind what Israel does,” say the Christian Zionists. “God wants this to happen.” This includes the invasion of Lebanon, which killed or injured an estimated 100,000 Lebanese and Palestinians, most of them civilians; the bombing of sovereign nations such as Iraq; the deliberate, methodical brutalizing of the Palestinians-breaking bones, shooting children, and demolishing homes; and the expulsion of Palestinian Christians and Muslims from a land they have occupied for over 2,000 years.

Christian Zionism is a dangerous and a false growing segment of Christianity, which was popularized by the 19th-century American Cyrus Scofield when he wrote into a Bible his interpretation of events in history. These events all centered around Israel-past, present, and future. His Scofield Bible is today the most popular of the reference Bibles. Scofield said that Christ cannot return to earth until certain events occur. The Jews must return to Palestine, gain control of Jerusalem and rebuild a temple, and then we all must engage in the final, great battle called Armageddon. Millions of Americans falsely do believe that Palestine is God’s chosen land for the Jews.  The Scofield teaching is concerned with a literal Jewish kingdom to last for a millennium.  It was first brought into the early church by some Jews who still could not give up the hope taught to them by the scribes and Pharisees.  The Bible does not teach it, and the disciples who had been taught it, rejected it after Pentecost.  Jesus warned about it in Matthew 16:6-12. We must ask ourselves if Jesus ever offered or announced himself as an earthly King or claimed David’s throne?  Had he ever in any way suggested he was going to set up an earthly kingdom?  He said to Pilate, “My kingdom is not of this world, if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now is my kingdom not from hence (John 18:36).  They could not prove him guilty before Pilate of any offense against Rome….The most reasonable interpretation of the work of Scofield is that it is neither honest nor valid.  As such, it should have the whistle blown, for it is properly outside the line of valid Christianity. The Scofield Reference Bible did, and is doing, a great disservice to the Kingdom of God.  And as for this second  biggest proponnent of the false rapture…  C.I. Scofield deserted his first wife, Leontine Carr Scofield, and his two young daughters, Abigale and Helene. The stern reality of the 1880’s was that an abandoned woman had neither welfare nor access to a well paying job. This is just our first insight into the pitiless heart of C.I. Scofield. At this time, Scofield was making overtures to two other women-an unnamed young woman from the St. Louis Flower Mission, and Hettie Van Wark whom he later married. Leontine, a devout Catholic, obtained a divorce on December 8, 1883 in Scofield’s hometown of Atcheson, Kansas. From her meager earnings as a librarian she properly educated her two daughters. The abandoned Leontine never remarried and was laid to rest in the Atcheson cemetery in 1936. Three months after the divorce, on March 11, 1884, C.I. Scofield married Hettie Van Wark. Apart from deserting his young wife and children, he was a liar, cheat, thief, self-promoter, philanderer, fraud and fantasist who was allowed to conceal his personal sins from view because of the support of his powerful handlers, both Freemason and Zionist.  Scofield was also into the Occult as well as pornography and was a drunk… He died of liver failure due to has alchohol problem and opium drug us. He had his wife work as a street girl in order to finance his drug habit. He was also indited on tax evasion.  by their own fruits you can tell what they really are said Jesus.. http://www.heart-talks.com/truth30.html

  1. Look at what i found..

    “Our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God,” she said. “That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God’s plan.” Sarah Plain Now many people wrongfully have read into this what she has not said.. We all need to ensure everything we do is in accordance with God’s plans, even daily.

    Is Sarah Palin’s Bible church in Alaska teaching falsehoods now?

    Sarah Palin was baptized a Roman Catholic, and then became an evangelical Protestant, Pentecostal at a young age. The church she now only recently attends, Wasilla Bible Church is part of a wide ranging non Pentecostal, fundamental evangelical movement known in theological circles as dispensationalist. Extreme right winger Christianity. So it is more than fair to ask Sarah Palin, George Bush. and Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper row too, as what underlies their view that the Iraq War is supposedly a task God has given us – it is imperative. If any of them says it is consistent with the dispensationalist view, that fact alone should be carefully examined, because it gives rise to a false worldview that is likely to keep us at war in the Middle East perpetually, with no end to come. Does they all want to take us back to the Crusades?

    “Jesus Christ rejected the opportunity to be annointed a military leader to conquer the powers of this world, and chose to conquer in other ways.

    Dispensationalism is a popular but controversial system of interpreting the Bible, characterized by its belief that periods of history are divided in to various dispensations or ages, i.e. creation (Adam), pre-diluvean (Noah), the patriarchs (Abraham), the Mosaic law, the Davidic kingdom of Israel, the church age (Christ), and finally the new creation. Each dispensation in time begins with God’s grace being manifest on man and ends with man falling from grace and in need of God’s redemption.

    So for example, under the Law, God’s grace was given to the Israelites as they were freed from slavery in Egypt and ended with Saul’s defeat in battle after disobeying God’s command to him. Under the Dispensationalist system, the Church Age began with Christ’s resurrection and will end with the Great Tribulation.

    This belief has spawned a generation of books, movies and prophecies of the imminent Second Coming of Christ in the wake of the creation of the modern nation of Israel in 1948. Going back in even further, however, at least to the time of Woodrow Wilson, politicians have seized upon the fervor surrounding the expectation of Christ’s return, to create their own cheering sections for military intervention in the Middle East.”

    The liberals and the brethren both seem to like to lie, distort the truths..

  2. Firstly, Dispensationalism (hereafter termed “D.P.”) relies on one foundational tenet which I believe to be absolutely unscriptural; and that is that Christ’s teachings were and are only addressed to Israel after the flesh. According to D.P., Christ’s preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom was to herald an immediate setting up of His kingdom of glory, which the Jews rejected by crucifying Him. This resulted in a postponement of further preaching of Christ’s Gospel, which awaits a future time, when, after the church is raptured up, it will once again be held out to Israel.

    Now according to the D.P. theory, all of Christ’s teachings lie outside the pale of the church. My response to this error is twofold: Firstly, Christ did not begin preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom until after He had been confirmed as the Second Adam, or Seed of the Woman (Matt. 4: 1-11; cf. Gen. 3: 1-6). Thus His teachings have a universal frame of reference that relates to all mankind.

    Secondly, while I agree that the Gospel of the Kingdom was first preached to Jews only, their rejection of that message resulted in the same Gospel being offered to the Gentiles. Note that there were never two or three or four Gospels. The same Gospel which was offered to the Jews and rejected by them was then offered to the Gentiles (Acts 13: 46, 28: 25-28).

    Of course, it is important to see that the entire Gospel message moves from law to grace. Christ’s teachings reveal the true nature of the moral law, whereas those of His inspired apostles and successors (especially Paul) reveal to us Divine grace in its fullness. This later emphasis on grace, however, does not mean that the Ephesian and Colossian churches were under a different dispensation. It only means that they had become mature enough to move from law to grace. The Pauline epistles, whch are so often abused, are suited to those only who show some progress in their Christian walk; while Christ’s teachings should be employed to show men the first steps of salvation.

    All Christian instruction begins with the teachings of Jesus Christ. As He Himself commanded: “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world” (Matt. 28: 19-20). It may be seen from this Scripture that the Gospel of the Kingdom is to be preached to all nations–not to the Jews only. In fact, it was Israel’s rejection of the promised Messiah that led to the extension of salvation to “all nations.”

    What I am saying is this: the Gospel preached by Christ is not different from that preached by Paul. Nor are there two Gospels for two different dispensations. The law and the prophets were until John, and from thenceforth the Kingdom of God was preached (Luke 16: 16). The Gospel of the Kingdom is contained in the New Testament; and “rightly dividing the word of truth” involves discerning which elements are best fitted for the instruction of Christian disciples. To a congregation of shallow, worldly-minded converts, I would never dream of preaching the Pauline doctrines of grace, but would preach from, say, Christ’s teachings and the epistle of James. But to an assembly of mature, well-grounded Christians, the pure grace of Ephesians would be more in place.

    To suppose that because the apostles taught supplementary revelations of the Gospel (John 16: 12-13) they were under a different dispensation, is to add confusion to the mix. In one of Paul’s very last epistles, he wrote: “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words” &c. (1 Tim. 6: 3-4). Thus, it is obvious that Paul, far from considering the teachings of Jesus Christ abrogated, commanded Timothy to make sure they were being taught in the assemblies.

    Another reason why I am not a D.P. is because that system holds to an unscriptural separation of Jews and Gentiles in Christ. We are blandly told that Hebrews and 1st epistle of Peter are not for the church, inasmuch as they were written to “Jewish Christians” of the Dispersion. This kind of quibbling is not only mischievous, but potentially dangerous. For it ends in the belief that Christ has a different plan for Jewish Christians than He does for Gentile ones.

    This theory is refuted in Ephesians, where Paul states (by implication) that saved Gentiles are now members of the commonwealth of Israel (Eph. 2: 12); and (expressly) that a main effect of Christ’s atonement would be the creation of “one new man” composed of both Jews and Gentiles, the middle wall of partition (mesotoichon) being taken away (Eph. 2: 13-15).

    The “middle wall” is a reference to the stone palisade, about three cubits high, which separated the court of the Gentiles from that of the Jews. Paul is plainly stating that “in Christ” Gentiles obtain privileges that were previously restricted to the Jews alone. Taking this truth into consideration, how can any Christian teacher declare with a straight face that the destiny and hope of Jewish & Gentile believers are in any way opposite?

    This discrepancy brings me to a third point I wanted to raise concerning Dispensationalism; and that is the revelation of the “mystery” first mentioned in Romans 16: 25. The D.P.’s claim that this “mystery” was the church, which before Christ’s atoning work was not at all revealed to the sons of men.

    As I see it, this view contains two major flaws. Firstly, it is evident from Paul’s own words that the “church” was not the mystery to be disclosed. The “mystery” was that the “Gentiles would be fellow-heirs and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ by the Gospel” (Eph. 3: 6).

    Secondly, Paul never claimed that the mystery hadn’t been previously declared. He merely said that it was not known “as it is now revealed unto His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit” (Eph. 3: 5). The Divine promise that Gentiles would be fellow-heirs with the Jews was declared by Noah, who prophesied: “God shall enlarge Japheth (the Gentiles), and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem (Israel): and Canaan shall be His servant” (Gen. 9: 27). Of course, previous to Christ’s first advent, this promise was wrapped up in dark types and figures. However, it was not totally concealed, as D.P.’s claim.

    Naturally, there are other areas in which I disagree with Dispensationalism.

  3. The Bible, New Testament, Jesus the apostles gives us clear warnings as to the characteristics of the type of persons who even go out of their way to betray Jesus Christ, including even Judas one of the 12 apostles, the religious Jews, legalists and Hypocrites, the Scribes and Pharisees such as Saul , as well as materialistic oriented persons, and sadly even the professing Christians like Apostle Peter. The betrayal of Jesus was wrongfully also next inflicted upon His Followers including more lies, slander, human rights violations, and it will go on today, unless someone opposes it, rightfully stands up against it.

  4. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors Matt 21

    Dispensationalists seem to like to point out that we can predetermine future, present events by the parable of the FIG tree, the tree that is the symbol of the growth of the nation of Israel.. well to be consistent they need to deal with all of this now too.. .

    “Matthew 21:18
    Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.

    Matthew 21:19
    And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever.

    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:

    Matthew 24:33
    So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

    Matthew 24:34
    Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

    We read in our King James Bible, “Learn a parable of the fig tree”. And we are inclined to learn that just as the fig tree in spring naturally brings forth leaves and then fruit, so we should interpret the cataclysmic events of the end of time that the second coming of the Lord Jesus is near. But that is not what the Greek text says. The Greek text in Matthew 24:32 says literally, “Learn The parable from The fig tree”. In other words, the Lord Jesus says: “Go back to The parable of The fig tree I already told you, and learn from it that this parable is dealing with end time events”. In other words, there is a definite fig tree, only one fig tree, and there is a definite parable attached to this fig tree that you must learn to apply to end time events, so that you will understand the signs of the times. We must understand that the Lord is not engaging in any speculation about His second coming, for in verse 36 He emphasizes that “No man knoweth the day or the hour”, and the context clearly indicates that this is referring to a time element. Likewise in the Gospel of Mark 13:28, which runs parallel to this passage in Matthew 24, we must also make this change in our King James Bible, for there the Greek text also reads: “Learn The parable from The fig tree”. And so, we must dig a little deeper into the parable of the fig tree from other parts of Scripture. We will do this by turning to Mark 11:12. We have here a passage that runs parallel to the storyline of Matthew 21, but we are given here a little more information. We learn from this passage:

    It Was Not the Season for Figs (Mark 11:12-24, 13:28, Matthew 24:32)

    We begin verse 12 on Monday morning, the day after the glorious entrance of the Lord into Jerusalem.

    Mark 11:12-14
    And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

    Mark 11:15-16
    And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

    Mark 11:17-19
    And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. And when even was come, he went out of the city.

    We read here clearly in verse 13, “He found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet”.

    Did the Lord Jesus, the omniscient Lord of glory, not know that it was not the season for figs?

    We find this unbelievable. Of course the Lord Jesus knew that it was not the season for figs. But these words were written for our learning, so that we would understand that the Lord was deliberately giving us a parable. The main point of this story is not whether the Lord Jesus knew that it was not the season for figs, but the main point of this story is that the people who are symbolized by that fig tree were cursed. And this was not an incidental curse. The Lord Jesus said, “No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever”. And notice the words “for ever”. And His disciples heard it. The Lord made sure that these words would be recorded. Now, the Lord did not give us this story of the fig tree for a teaching about prayer. The commentaries want us to believe that. The focus is not about prayer, but a parable about end time events, for this is clearly what the Lord taught us in Mark 13:28 and in Matthew 24:32. From the context wherein we find the teaching of this parable we understand that this has to do with a curse on the religious rulers of the Jews, or a curse on the entire nation of Israel. Let us see where the Scriptures take us to. The next day was Tuesday morning. We read in Mark 11:20-24,

    Mark 11:20-22
    And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

    Mark 11:23-24
    For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

    The fig tree was dried up from the roots. If this fig tree represents a religious group of people, then certainly their roots are not in Christ, but in some other person than Christ. Remember that, in Mark 11:14 the Lord Jesus said to the fig tree, “No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever”. And in Matthew 21:19 the Lord said to the fig tree, “Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever”. And thus we understand that there was a time that this fig tree was bearing fruit that was pleasing to the Lord, but from this time forward it would no longer bear fruit that was pleasing to the Lord. And the moment in time almost coincided with the time that the Lord Jesus died on the cross.

    In other words, what nation, or what religious organization did bear good fruit until the time of the cross?

    There is only one possibility. It was the nation of Israel which was a special nation before God, all the way from Abraham until the time of the cross, which produced some fruit that was pleasing to God. In the Old Testament time God had no other nation that was constantly under His care. For a brief period of time the Ninevites produced good fruit under the preaching of Jonah. But only the nation consisting of the physical descendants of Jacob was the nation where God sent His prophets for hundreds of years. Throughout the OT time we see a trickle of true believers come forth out of that nation, for the prophets preached the true Gospel to that nation. But after the Lord cursed the fig tree, after the cross, that nation as a whole remains adamantly opposed to the true Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. They want Moses but not Christ.

    Luke 13:6-9
    He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

    Is the Lord speaking about the same fig tree that we saw in Matthew 21 and in Mark 11?

    Of course He is.

    There were three events in the history of the nation of Israel that the Lord found no fruit, and therefore He cut it down, but left a remnant to take root and grow the nation again. The first time was in the year 709 BC when God sent the Assyrian army as the rod of His anger to the northern kingdom of Israel, and they wiped the northern kingdom of Israel off the map. The apostacy in the northern kingdom had reached the limit where God no longer tolerated it.

    The second time was in 587 BC when God sent the Babylonian armies to the kingdom of Judah, and they wiped the kingdom of Judah off the map. At that time also, the apostacy in the kingdom of Judah was so great that God would no longer tolerate it.

    The third time was in AD 70 when God sent the Roman legions under the Roman general Titus, to destroy the nation of the Jews, Judaea and Galilee. They totally destroyed Jerusalem, and scattered the Jews all over the Roman Empire, because the majority of the nation of the Jews refused to humble themselves before their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Three times did the Lord look for good fruit, and all three times He took away the nation because of their worship of other gods; there was no good fruit. And for almost 1900 years there was no possibility of seeing another nation of Jews come to existence

    “Who is Israel today?” We know that the people who are physical descendants of Jacob are called Israel. We have already seen from Matthew 2:15 that the Lord Jesus is also called Israel, and therefore all those who belong to Christ have also the right to be called Israel.
