The Fig Tree Prophecy, The Last Generation

Luke 21:5-36 NIV
The Fig Tree Prophecy

According to the fig tree prophecy there are five things a person must understand to comprehend this important prophecy. My commentary is in blue, I hope you enjoy this. Please comment after you read it, thankyou. Here's Luke 21:6-36, NIV.

Signs of the End of the Age

5Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Jesus said, 6"As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down."

7"Teacher," they asked, "when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?"

8He replied: "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and, 'The time is near.' Do not follow them. 9When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away."

10Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

Verse 9-10-The end will not come right away. Chr-st is teaching us that there will be some time before these things he is speaking of, before the time of the end, specifically thousands of years. Christ is prophesying about Communism, Lenin & Stalin, WW1, WW2 and the many wars since including when the Locust like Islamic radicalism re-awakened right after the Yom Kipper war in 1974.

12"But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13This will result in your being witnesses to them. 14But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17All men will hate you because of me. 18But not a hair of your head will perish. 19By standing firm you will gain life.

Verses -12-19- But before all this, These verses prophesy about those first millions of Christians starting with the disciples first, that will be thrown to the lions, tortured, tied up and taken where they do not wish to go. They will be given new derogatory name repeated by many of that time, Nero himself, a great false witness blaming them of all the fires of Rome breaking the 9th commandment, he being emperor of Rome, quoted by Josephus the historian, as calling them that scourge of a name, "Those Christians!"-literal translation--"Those Chr-st followers!"

20"When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. 21Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. 23How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. 24They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

Jerusalem will be trampled on till the time of the Gentiles are fulfilled. Jerusalem in G-d's eyes is the same as Israel. This prophecy was fulfilled in 1948 when Israel became a nation. From 1948 on half of Jerusalem was controlled by Israel. This began fulfillment of this prophecy. Israel took all of Jerusalem in the 1967 six day war.

25"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."

All these extreme weather patterns, Hurricanes, Tsunamis, Tornadoes and roaring of the seas all over the world. We are to look up for our redemption is near! We are to get dressed and put on our wedding garments for judgment is near!

29He told them this parable: "Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.

To understand this we are to look at all the trees when they are sprouting leaves and fruit. We never know exactly what day spring starts. But a day will come when the great angels harvest the fruit of the earth separating it from the chaff throwing the chaff in the lake of fire, eternal damnation. This day for simplicity sake we will call Judgment day, Lord's Day, Day of Wrath, Second Coming, Rapture, The Time of Jacob's Trouble, Millennial day of rest for some, others a second death in the lake of fire. The calendars tell us a day, but it might be a late spring or an early spring, each year is different. But we have a feeling when spring is near and this is all we know. Something is coming, something very big, something very overwhelming. No one can stop this time from coming, not the president of the United States, the greatest book author or the most famous Hollywood movie star.

32"I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 33Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

J-sus Chr-st telling the truth. We had better listen. The generation that sees Israel become a nation again will not pass away and will actually see the Day of the Lord, Second Coming, Rapture, Judgment of Mankind. Chr-st's words will never pass away. This last generation will live seventy years, according to Moses, Psalms 90:10.

34"Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. 35For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

We are to watch and pray always about the Second Coming, Rapture, and when it will occur. We are to always pray we are counted worthy. This insinuates many will think they are worthy but will not be counted worthy. A G-dly man will watch for the end and be ready!

Five Things To Understand The Fig Tree Prophecy

A.) Jerusalem will be trampled on by the gentiles until the time of the gentiles are fulfilled, Luke 21:24.

B.) This generation will not pass away until the Day of the Lord has occurred, Luke 21:32.

C.) The length of time this last generation will live will be seventy years, eighty if lucky before flying away being raptured, taken away, Moses, Psalms 90:10.

D.) Be always watching, always praying that you are able to escape these things, Luke 21:36.

E.) When you see these things happening you will know the kingdom of God is

near, Luke 21:31.

Okay now here's additional comments to understand this section prophetically. Verse 12 -halfway through verse 24, starts with "But before all this", Christ is prophesying about the immediate future of the disciples. Verse 24 ends with "They will be taken to all the nations." , They are the nation of Israel and the fall of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. by the Romans. This is the same thing Christ is talking about in verse six when he says not one stone will be left on a stone, every one of them will be thrown down. Verse 8-10 is general information on false prophets and also WW1,2 &3 and all the wars in the last 100 years involving the United Nations. The second half of verse 24 all the way to verse 36 are the key verses to understand the Fig Tree Prophecy.

Are there any comments? Anything someone would like to add?

American Prophecies, Her Fall & The Fig Tree Prophecy

(Revelation 17:1-18:24)


This post is only for those of you who believe in the fig tree prophecy. I am interested in your interpretation of scripture. Do you realize that according to G-d each person who owns a bible has been given the ability to illuminate scripture with the assistance of H-ly Sp-rit? Not only does G-d state this he requires you to hold those you place above you in your churches accountable that they do not add to or take away from G-d's words in the holy bible he has given you according to Revelation 22:18-19.

Your interpretation must be backed up with scriptural quotes and you cannot quote other theologians. I am not interested in what this theologian or that teacher taught or said. Please allow H-ly Sp-rit to flow in you. I am only interested in what you led by the Holy Spirit concluded and why. No dogma here. Only real world interpretations. So here it is.

Fig Tree Prophecy Believers Only Please

Read chapter 17 and chapter 18 completely in the book of Revelation. These two chapters speak of the richest nation on earth that falls in one day, one hour, burned by plagues of fire, sulfur and smoke, death, mourning and famine, Revelation 18:8;17:16-17;Isaiah 47:14; sent from G-d through the Beastly Antichrist nations she rides, steers, and bucked off like a steer, a wild Beast, Revelation 18:8;17:16-17; Isaiah 47:14; bucked off in the vast desert of the earth, Revelation 17:3. This nation makes all nations of the earth wealthy because she buys their cargoes of luxurious goods, being the wealthiest nation, Revelation chapter 18:11-13. For Babylon's kingdom never ends till judgment day, Daniel 2:38, which is why we still see a greater Babylon in Revelation 17:5. For G-d reveals the end from the beginning, Isaiah 46:10, so to understand who Babylon the Great is we must go back to the beginning and study the Tower of Babel, Genesis chapter 11. Have you studied the beginning instead of men's words? T03506 This nation Revelation is not only the richest nation but is surrounded by more bodies of water then any nation on earth, Revelation 17:1; 17:15, but a different kind of Babylon without a king, Isaiah 47:1, also being a long coming descendant of Babylon called the daughter of Babylon, Isaiah 47:1, for she will not cover the earth with her cities because her nakedness will be exposed, Isaiah 47:3, and because of the heavy yoke she lays on the elderly, Isaiah 47:7, a calamity will fall on her she cannot ward off by paying a ransom Isaiah 47:11, and she will be a nation that takes many drugs, (sorceries), Isaiah 47:9. Many of G-d's followers including Apostle John will not believe this so the angel scolds John to wake up, Revelation 17:7, because John was very astonished. As Mama Sia Mother Prostitute she teaches other nations how to become wealthy like her so one of the seven angels calls her , "Mother Of Prostitutes And Of The Abominations Of The Earth." She is also called the Mother of abominations of the earth. After she falls the bridegroom and bride will never be heard in her again, Revelation 18:23. She will be defeated by a group of nations like her, Jeremiah 50:44-45. These nations are Iran, Russia and Islamic nations, Jeremiah 51:27-28. G-d brings judgment in one day one hour, Revelation 18:8 because he cannot save her because G-d would have healed her but they cannot, Jeremiah 51:8-9, so G-d sends plagues to her to fall in one day one hour, plagues of fire, sulfur and smoke, sent by the four angels released just east of the great river Euphrates, which today is Iraq and Iran, Revelation 9:14-15; Isaiah 47:14; Babylon & Y Formation two riversalso the same place where the Antichrist and False prophet come from, 16:12-16. This judgment upon this richest country will cause all her cities and towers to fall and G-d will send the greatest earthquake the world has ever seen to her, so great will this earthquake be that this great rich nation will dived into three parts Revelation 16:19, and all her islands of the earth will disappear when all her mountains fall in the sea, Revelation 16:20. She will receive a plague of 100 pound hailstones but her people will still curse G-d because the plague was so terrible. For she will not cover the earth with her cities since G-d has a different plan, Isaiah 14:21. This nation will be around during the last generation according to a large portion of the book of Revelation.

Since you believe we are the last generation what nation is this?

I'll give you a hint. The beast she is riding is not her. Here's both chapters 17 & 18 NIV.

Revelation 17:1-18 NIV

The Woman and the Beast

The name of this chapter by the NIV translators is not considered translation, but commentary. This name really is not accurate to the chapter so I have come up with a more appropriate name.

The Richest Country on Earth

Riding the Antichrist Beast

1One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. 2With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries."

3Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 4The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. 5This title was written on her forehead:
. 6I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.

When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. 7Then the angel said to me: "Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come.

9"This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. 10They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while. 11The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.

12"The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers." sX6Pmr2xQK9Nl60PVlOo3sARdE-JSJY-00A0

15Then the angel said to me, "The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God's words are fulfilled. 18The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth."

Revelation 18:1-24 NIV

1After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2With a mighty voice he shouted:
"Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!
She has become a home for demons
and a haunt for every evil spirit,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.
3For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries."

4Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
"Come out of her, my people,
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
5for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes
6Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back double for what she has done.
Mix her a double portion from her own cup.
7Give her as much torture and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
'I sit as queen; I am not a widow,
and I will never mourn.'
8Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

9"When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. 10Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry:
" 'Woe! Woe, O great city,
O Babylon, city of power!
In one hour your doom has come!'

11"The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes any more— 12cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; 13cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and bodies and souls of men.

14"They will say, 'The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.' 15The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn 16and cry out:
" 'Woe! Woe, O great city,
dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet,
and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!
17In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!'

"Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. 18When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, 'Was there ever a city like this great city?' 19They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out:
" 'Woe! Woe, O great city,
where all who had ships on the sea
became rich through her wealth!
In one hour she has been brought to ruin!
20Rejoice over her, O heaven!
Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets!
God has judged her for the way she treated you.' "

21Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said:
"With such violence
the great city of Babylon will be thrown down,
never to be found again.

22The music of harpists and musicians, flute players and trumpeters,
will never be heard in you again.
No workman of any trade
will ever be found in you again.
The sound of a millstone
will never be heard in you again.
23The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. noaa1cXSdI1nHlo60
The voice of bridegroom and bride
will never be heard in you again.
Your merchants were the world's great men.
By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.
24In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints,
and of all who have been killed on the earth."


So here are my questions for you.

1.) What nation or city on earth is Babylon the Great and what is your scriptural support?

You can only quote scripture for supporting evidence. No quotes of theologians, or past theologians, scriptures only please. No hate speech please and no accusing of the different sects in Christianity in the body of Chr-st. Only nations or cities that fulfill being Babylon the great with the scriptural evidence.

2.) Revelation 17:1 says this Mother of prostitutes sits on many waters. What nation or city sits on more waters than any city or nation on earth?

3.) Who are the beast nations having seven heads and ten horns the woman sits on and why? What is your scriptural evidence?

4.) How does she fall in one day and one hour & what is your scriptural evidence?

5.) Revelation 18:23 states the voice of the bridegroom and bride will never be heard in her again. Who is this voice and bridegroom and why will they never be heard in her again?

6.) Read Genesis chapter 11 on the fall of the Tower of Babel. The last time God judged the earth was with Noah and his family. Then the next thing that happened after judgment by water was the tower of Babel. What mirror image do you see in the tower of Babel in what happened there versus the characteristics of the end of Revelation when it talks about the fall of Babylon the Great? In other words opposite. I cannot say anything more or I will be giving it away.

7.) Why do the merchants & ship captains of the earth weep and who are they?

8.) Read Revelation 16:18-19. What do the scriptures say happens to this great city nation? Why does G-d do this to this nation and what is your scriptural support?

9.) Read Revelation chapter 21. What great city does God bring out of heaven to replace the great city God just judged? What is the size of this great city and how many nations on earth are bigger than the city God built?

I am interested in your comments and interpretations. Please people stay focused on things we are talking about only. Please do not deviate off the issue.

only interested in what you and the Holy Spirit concluded and why. No dogma here. Only real world interpretations. So here it is.
