Blasting the Fig Tree


No Man Eat Fruit of Thee Hereafter

Mark 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:

Mark 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not [yet].

Mark 11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard [it].


Matt 21:18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.

Matt 21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.


The Withered Fig Tree

Mark 11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Matt 21:20 And when the disciples saw [it], they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!

Matt 21:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this [which is done] to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

Matt 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.


Thom 48:x Jesus said: If two make peace with each other in this one house, they shall say to the mountain: "Be moved," and it shall be moved.


Thom 106:x Jesus said: When you make the two one, you shall become sons of Man, and when you say: "Mountain, be moved," it will be moved.
