The Parable of the Fig Tree, the Lord Jesus gave the most amazing sign of the end of the age as his disciples had asked for in Matthew 24. Hal Lindsey gives us a tour of major events in history that all took place in 1948. Two parts that will help you to see the budding of the fig tree as we should be getting the gospel out to the world. Not to stick your head in the sand. Prophecy is a gift to the Church and should cause great hope, not gloom and doom. Jesus said of the birth pains, And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:6-8. Our redemption is drawing near. Maranatha!
