The Good Figs and Bad Figs of Judah
The end of this earth age may be as near as 2020.
[It all depends on the Lord's definition of a generation.]

Jeremiah chapter 24 clearly identifies the "good figs" of Judah
and the "bad figs" of the residue of Judah who were merely residents,
inhabitants of Judea like those Nethinim
who came back with Ezra for example, i.e. the kenites.

Look up the Greek word translated "Jew" in your concordance.
You will find it has two meanings:
1.) a person who is a resident of Judea,
2.) a Judahite, a descendant of the tribe of Judah

In other words one can be identified as Jew
          either because he lives in the land of Judea,
or he is descended from Judah,
or I suppose, if you or your ancestors once lived there.

For example,
if I tell you I am a Pennsylvanian
you cannot tell what nationality or race or religion I am,
can you?

Well, not all Jews are descendants of Judah!

Some were foreigners, carpenters and smiths from King Solomon's day
and some Jews of today, were Khazars 

 Have you ever heard of the Khazar empire?
If not, go get an Encyclopedia Britannica.

So here is the SIGN Christ gave to His disciples
to identify the final generation who would see His return:

Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
When her branch is yet tender,
and putteth forth leaves,
ye know that summer is near:

Jeremiah 24:1 The LORD shewed me, and, behold,
two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD,
after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon
had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah,
and the princes of Judah,
with the carpenters and smiths,
from Jerusalem,
and had brought them to Babylon.

Notice that the two baskets of figs were set before the temple!

[2] One basket had very good figs,
even like the figs that are first ripe:
and the other basket had very naughty figs,
which could not be eaten,
they were so bad.

[3] Then said the LORD unto me,
What seest thou, Jeremiah?
And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good;
and the evil, very evil,
that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.

Do not eat of the "bad figs"
for they come from the other tree which was in the midst of the garden of God
"they are evil".

 It really is a shame that most all of Christianity
 can't see what Jesus did for the blind man from Bethsaida!
Oh! They see the second miracle alright; But , the first miracle they can't see!
It goes right over their head!
Mark 8:22-25 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto Him, and besought Him to touch him.
First miracle>  [23] And He took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when He had spit on his eyes, and put His hands upon him, He asked him if he saw ought. [24] And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
Second miracle> [25] After that He put His hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

There were two trees in the Garden of Eden:---One was "The Tree of Life" (Jesus Christ); His fruit will lead you to ETERNAL LIFE! and the other was "The Tree of the Knowledge of GOOD and EVIL" (Satan); his fruit leads to ETERNAL DEATH!, even though some of it is good. Satan returns to earth, claiming he is God, five months before Christ's return. God is allowing Satan five months on earth as a test for us, to see if we who claim to be Christians really know the difference between What is HOLY and what is PROFANE!--- DON'T FORGET THAT SATAN IS A SUPERNATURAL ARCHANGEL We will be no match for him and his trickery with out "The Seal of God in Our Foreheads". He fooled and seduced Eve in the garden! Don't you be fooled by his good fruit, and worship him as God.--- Watch for the EVIL fruit! Don't have Christ return to find you have already been to bed with Satan! Will you remain spiritually true as a "chaste virgin" and wait for your bridegroom, Jesus Christ, or will you spiritually hop in bed with Satan when he comes to earth performing miracles and claims to be God?    Live Link to->>  Men as Trees Walking
After you finish reading "Men as Trees Walking", if you still can't see both miracles Jesus performed for the blind man from Bethsaida, go back and study those miracles until you have eyes to see them both!
Live Link to->>  "Two Sowers of seed; both the good and the bad"  
 I guess you think Cain was Adam's son and all angels are good guys!
 What in the world do you think Noah's flood was all about!  Were they eating apples too?
      Read Genesis 6:1-4

Dig up the rest of this chapter carefully
and it will further identify the good and the bad figs.

By this we then know that on May 15, 1948,
when the United Nations declared Israel a nation for the first time in over two millennia,
that the two baskets of figs were now set forth in Jerusalem before the temple.

Let's return to Christ's words in Mark 13,
the subject of which is the events leading up to His destruction of that temple
at His return,

Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
When her branch is yet tender,
and putteth forth leaves,
ye know that summer is near:

                    And so the tender shoot was planted and began to put forth leaves in 1948,
but oh my how it has grown in stature today.

[29] So ye, in like manner,
when ye shall see these things come to pass,
know that it is near,
even at the doors.

 Do you realize how near it is?

[30] Verily I say unto you,
that this generation shall not pass,
till all these things be done.

the generation that began in 1948 shall not pass away
until all the "things" in Mark 13 are DONE!

Isn't it interesting that the generation which began in 1948
is specifically known as the Baby Boomers.

Jesus said, "Some of them
shall see the birth of a new age!"

Let's see... 2015 - 1948 = 67.
The Baby Boomers are aging fast and they will soon retire.

[31] Heaven and earth shall pass away:
but my words shall not pass away.

Two things are for sure:
1.) Jesus Christ has foretold us exactly how the final events are "goin' down",
2.) they SHALL come to pass EXACTLY as He said they will!

Take Heed, His words are reality!

 Mark 13:33 Take ye heed,
watch and pray:
for ye know not when the time is.

Dear readers, I may not be the smartest person in the world,
but I can add.
If the fig tree was planted in 1948
the average life span of those people is between 72 and 78 years,
the generation could be said to end in the year 2020.

The remaining time until the end is getting shorter every day.

Finally, to all of you I say,

Did you also know that there are only two end time churches out of the seven
listed in Rev. 2 & 3 that Jesus Christ finds no fault with?

They are the churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia
they BOTH know who the "bad figs" are,
which is a prerequisite for understanding the parable of the fig tree
so as to be able to identify the final generation.

Here are Christ's comments to the churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia respectively:

Remember, John recieved this vision when taken in the Spirit to the Lord's day, which is the day of the Lord's return.
Rev. 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as a trumpet, 11 Saying ...
-Read it for yourself - Revelation 1:9 thur 3:22.

Therefore; To the end time church of Smyrna, The Lord says, Rev. 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
And; To the end time church of Philadelphia, The Lord says, Rev. 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
