Our purpose in life is to bear the fruits of Elohim, to be like a fruitful tree that bears the beautiful fruits of the Spirit unto Yahweh. We should strive to bear acceptable fruit that the Father loves, otherwise we are either bearing fruit of the Adversary or are spiritually dead! Lets look at the example of the Tree that was cursed for deeper meaning:
Mattityahu (Matthew) 21:12-14,21-26:
(12) And on the next day, when they had come out from Bĕyth Anyah, He was hungry.
(13) And seeing at a distance a fig tree having leaves, He went to see whether He would find any fruit on it. And when He came to it, He found none but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.
(14) And יהושע, responding, said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.” And His taught ones heard it.
(21) Then Kĕpha, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered.”
(22) And יהושע answering, said to them, “Have belief in Elohim.
(23) “For truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says, shall be done, he shall have whatever he says.
(24) “Because of this I say to you, whatever you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.
(25) “And whenever you stand praying, if you hold whatever against anyone, forgive, so that your Father in the heavens shall also forgive you your trespasses.
(26) “But if you do not forgive, neither shall your Father in the heavens forgive your trespasses.”
Yahushua, the master of creation, the tool of the hand of Yahweh, the Creator of Heaven and Earth was physically hungry. Most of us can sympathize with hunger and the desire for instant gratification and satisfaction, and yet there is a much deeper picture here than satiation of hunger. His hunger is for the spiritual maturity and fruit of His bride, which was originally represented by a fig tree, not a Menorah or the Star of David. The problem that he found was that when He was ready to enjoy the fruits, His bride/fig tree was not ready, it wasn’t in season. A very similar parable to this physical representation is seen in the Gospel of Luke:
Luços (Luke) 13:6-9:
(6) And He spoke this parable, “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none.
(7) “And he said to the gardener, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down, why does it even make the ground useless?’
(8) “And he answering, said to him, ‘Master, leave it this year too, until I dig around it and throw manure.
(9) ‘And if indeed it bears fruit, good. But if not so, you shall cut it down.’ ”
We are to bear fruit acceptable in the eyes of the Father and the Messiah. What does that mean? The answer lies in “living” the word. Incorporating the Word of Life into your very life, this is the epitome of living a life for the Kingdom and not living one for the world. If you do this, you will have a deepening faith capable of praying with expectation, loving with compassion, and a heart capable of forgiveness.
Yet one more example of trees that bear no fruit or evil/wicked fruit:
Mattityahu (Matthew) 7:19: Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
I urge you to be ready for the Master’s coming and walk in truth and live it, for I fear that he may not wait again and heaven forbid you be cast into the fire because you weren’t ready. May you grow in the shade of the Father’s wings and bare the beautiful fruits of His kingdom. Shalom Aleichem!
