Jeremiah 24:5-6 Old Testament Prophesy: The Time Is Now
ISRAEL REBORN AS A NATION: 1948
The Fig Tree Generation…
Will See All These Things Come To Pass
“Thus says the Lord God of Israel, ‘Like these good figs, so I will regard as good the captives of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans. For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them again to this land; and I will build them up and not overthrow them, and I will plant them and not pluck them up.”
God cannot be speaking historically from our vantage point, because Judah and Israel were plucked out and the second temple destroyed in 70 AD.
According to BlueLetterBible.Org:
The “Fig-tree” is a New Testament symbol or figure of [National] Israel and was used by Jesus Himself. As Jesus sat upon the Mount of Olives, on the ‘Tuesday evening preceding His Crucifixion, His Disciples came to Him and asked a threefold question-“Tell us, when shall these things be (the destruction of the Temple)? and what shall be the SIGN of Thy Coming, and of the end of the world (Age)?” Matthew. 24:3.
These three questions Jesus answered in His “Olivet Discourse” which followed. In His answer to the question-“What shall be the SIGN of Thy Coming?” Jesus mentioned three signs:
- The appearance of the “ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION” (the “DESOLATOR”-Antichrist), spoken of by Daniel the prophet (Dan. 9:27) in the Holy Place of the rebuilt Temple at Jerusalem, as foretold by Paul in his Second Letter to the Thessalonians. 2 Thess. 2:1-4.
- The “SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN,” which is a “CLOUD,” such as He disappeared in when He ascended. Acts. 1:9; Matt. 24:30.
- The “FIG-TREE SIGN,” or the re-gathering of the Jews back to their own land. In connection with this “Sign” Jesus said the following:
Jesus also identified 4 types of signs to answer the question about the sign of the end of the age:
- Signs in the world – wars, earthquakes, famines, pestilence, lawlessness, wild weather …
- Signs in the church – worldwide gospel preaching, persecution, apostasy, false prophets …
- Signs in Israel – returning as a nation, invasion, severe persecution of Jews …
- Signs in the heavens – fearful solar and cosmic disturbances, asteroids …
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
24 For if you were cut from a wild olive tree, and contrary to nature were grafted into one that is cultivated, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree! 25 I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you will not be conceited: A hardening in part has come to Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come from Zion; He will remove godlessness from Jacob.…
For they have turned their backs to Me and not their faces, yet in the time of trouble they beg, ‘Rise up and save us!’
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Behold, I am going to save My people from the land of the east and from the land of the west; and I will bring them back and they will live in the midst of Jerusalem; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God in truth and righteousness.’
‘Thus says the Lord God, “When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and will manifest My holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they will live in their land which I gave to My servant Jacob. They will live in it securely; and they will build houses, plant vineyards and live securely when I execute judgements upon all who scorn them round about them. Then they will know that I am the Lord their God.” ‘
For thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out. As a shepherd cares for his herd in the day when he is among his scattered sheep, so I will care for My sheep and will deliver them from all the places to which they were scattered on a cloudy and gloomy day.
“Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord. “But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
