Understanding the fig tree being cursed: why did Jesus cursed the fig tree while it was not in a seasonal time for it to have fruits? Did Jesus cursed it really because of it ’s lack of fruits? Was he lead by his belly? Surely not…the explanation is in the text and in Genesis.

the Bible empathized he went to see the tree to find fruits while it was not the season…and the only thing he saw was leafs… so he cursed the tree and the day after when they came back the tree was dried dead. Could Jesus go against his word (remember he is the word) every tree will bear fruits in due season and then cursed it for not being fruitful?

Genesis will give us the answer:

Adam and eve were naked and after sin they discovered they were, so they did take leafs and dresses with it in order to hide their nudity. when God came he saw the leafs… he knew something had happened, he knew he will have to have the redemption plan activated, remember before Adam sinned God had already a plan of redemption, otherwise your name could not have been written in the book of life before the foundation of the world.

So God had to perform there the very first sacrifice, killed an animal to do them a covering… a dress, something to hide their nakedness.

So when Jesus saw the fig tree he remembered the purpose of his calling, he remembered the downfall of man, he remembered the sin, he remembered the seduction of the devil…he saw only the leafs and no fruits.

Many of us hide behind leafs (religion, titles, position, age, gray hairs…) and show no fruits. No sign of it in no season, because for us to be fruitful is in and out of season.

We hide behind money, elevation, knowledge of man, degrees and doctorates.

be careful hiding is a curse on itself and having no fruits is another curse, it is time for the church , the Christians to come out in the light and to show their fruits…if Jesus was passing by would he find fruits or leafs? When the son of man comes back will he find faith?

Shalom ,be blessed, your servant
