WITHERED FIG TREE

Do you have a mountain size dilemma that you can’t move nor climb? If this is applies to you, best believe you might be harboring un-forgiveness. In Mark Chp 11 Jesus was not happy to find a fig tree with leaves and no fruit. He said to it in V14, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again!” Shortly thereafter Jesus drives out the money changers from the temple and the next morning He and the twelve passed by the same fig tree and it was completely withered from the roots up. How did this phenomenon happen? Peter and the gang was as perplexed back then as we are today. In V21 he said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look, the fig tree which You cursed has withered.” In V22 Jesus responded, “Have faith in God.” Jesus continued in V23 with, “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.” Watch this, there is a condition to this bilateral promise found in VV25-26. Would you like to guess what it is?? FORGIVENESS. Some of you are walking around with mountain size problems and you have been praying, reading the bible, fasting, tithing, and counseling all to no avail. God is not as concerned about your actions more so than He is concerned about your heart. Jesus was really saying that if you were amazed at this little fig tree, you can move this MOUNTAIN of olive trees through faith, prayer, and forgiveness. If all you have is faith and prayer your are missing one key quintessential ingredient; FORGIVENESS!
