New King James Version
A vinekeeper holds out hope that a barren fig tree will bear fruit next year.
Mark 11:12–20 includes an account of Jesus cursing the fig tree:
The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.
Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it. On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple area and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. And as he taught them, he said, "Is it not written: " 'My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations'? But you have made it 'a den of robbers.'" The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching. When evening came, they went out of the city.
In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!" "Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."
— NRSV
A parallel is found in Matthew 21:18–22, but the fig tree withers immediately and is noticed at that time by the disciples. The Fig Tree Withered
18 Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. 19 And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, Let no fruit grow on you ever again. Immediately the fig tree withered away.
The Lesson of the Withered Fig Tree
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?”
21 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. 22 Andwhatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
 When the apostle Nathanael first encounters Jesus and asks how Jesus knows him, the answer is that He has already seen Nathanael sitting under the fig tree (John 1:47–51). 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!
48 Nathanael said to Him, How do You know me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.
49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel! 50 Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these. 51 And He said to him, Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter[a] you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.


No One Knows the Day or Hour Matthew 24:36 to 44
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of [f]heaven, but My Father only. ( What a secret only God knows)37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they wereeating and drinkingmarrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood cameand took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. ( Are you ready with the Light of God revealing to you His love)40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what [g]hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what [h]hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
The Faithful Servant and the Evil Servant
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food [i]in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing(God created us to work so we can produce Goodwill and Peace so we can pray for our enemies to become like Christ also!) 47 Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying [j]his coming,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Lord help us to be connected to the vine; Jesus, as John 15 tells us to do if we are going to rest in Heaven abiding forever with the Kingdom of Gods. Who are you serving God or Satan? Remember Satan is out to destroy all God created and God came to give us faith, hope in Him, so we can worship and reverence the Lord to have Him Answer our prayers within our Souls imagination, conscience, memory, reason and affection that are bent on serving the Lord with our bodies; eyes, ears, mouth, noses and feelings. Thank the Lord God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are three in one. Your body, soul and spirit are you, three in one. So remember God loves His creation and Satan is out to destroy all God created for our good. So trust and obey the Lord? OK!!!
