The Significance of it – Mark.11:12-14
This is one of the most difficult scriptures for us to understand in the Bible. That a curse word would proceed from the mouth of the Lord is hard to understand, let alone pronouncing death to an innocent fig tree. The cursing of the tree that can only respond to the law of nature was hard to be understood by the saints of God. Why was this curse? Did the tree do something that was beyond us? Was the Lord of creation justified in bringing death to the fig tree? This and other hard questions are left for us to decipher in the 21st century.
It is believed that the Lord wanted to change the season of figs for this particular tree forever. So He placed a demand on it. He was placing a new demand on the tree by fast-forwarding its destiny. The principle is that God calls what He knows that we can produce by His grace, but the tree did not respond to God by accepting what He said about it. But its submission to the Lord of creation, the tree replied to Him did not reciprocate the faith that God placed on it of producing, even though it was not its season.
