Luke 13:6-9 IMPLICATIONS:
1. HOW MUCH SPIRITUAL OIL DO YOU HAVE?
2. HOW MANY GOOD SPIRITUAL FRUIT HAVE YOU MANAGED TO BEAR FOR YAH?
3. WHAT IS YOUR CONDITION OF YOUR SPIRITUAL FRUIT? (John 15; Galatians 5)
⁶Then YAHUSHUA gave this illustration: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came looking for fruit but didn’t find any.
⁷So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘Here, I’ve come looking for fruit on this fig tree for three years now without finding any. Cut it down — why let it go on using up the soil?’
⁸But he answered, ‘Sir, leave it alone one more year. I’ll dig around it and put manure on it.
⁹If it bears fruit next year, well and good; if not, you will have it cut down then.’”
Luke (Luk) 13:6-9 CJB
It is very clear here that The Vineyard is THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN a.k.a THE KINGDOM OF YAH (GOD) which is RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE and JOY IN THE HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT.
The man who owns the Vineyard is ABBA YAHUVEH (YAHWEH) – GOD THE FATHER!
Now, regarding the fig tree🌳, what does it represent?
The fig tree is the third tree to be mentioned by name in the Hebrew Bible. … During Solomon’s reign Judah and Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, lived in safety, each man “under his own vine and fig tree” (1 Kings 4:25), an indicator of national wealth and prosperity.
“Under their vine and fig tree” is a phrase quoted in the Hebrew Scriptures in three different places: Micah 4:4, 1 Kings 4:25, and Zechariah 3:10. The phrase refers to the independence of the peasant farmer who is freed from military oppression.
The first is the Tree of life and the second is the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Adam and Eve used the leaves of the fig tree to sew garments for themselves after they ate the “fruit of the Tree of knowledge” (Genesis 2:16–17), when they realized that they were naked (Genesis 3:7).
In the Jewish scriptures the people of Israel are sometimes represented as figs on a fig tree (Hosea 9:10, Jeremiah 24), or a fig tree that bears no fruit (Jeremiah 8:13), and in Micah 4:4 the age of the messiah is pictured as one in which each man would sit under his fig tree without fear; the cursing of the fig tree …
THE FIG TREE IN LUKE 13 REPRESENTS ISRAEL (The Orthodox Jews 🕎 who reject the MESSIAH) – The Wild Olive 🫒 Tree 🌳 mentioned in Romans 11.
If the members of the Wild Olive 🫒 Tree 🌳 start to have EMUNAH (FAITH) in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH thereby accepting YAH’S SALVATION, then they will be grafted into The Cultivated Olive 🫒 Tree 🌳.
²³Whereas, they also, if they do not continue in a condition of no emunah, shall be grafted in; for YAHUVEH (YAHWEH) is able to graft them in again.
Kehilah in Rome 11:23 OJB
YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH walked among the for 3 years teaching various aspects of YAH’S KINGDOM.
I see YAH’S GRACE and MERCY being expressed here towards YAH’S Beloved People, Israel 🇮🇱 – the Biological Hebrew People! YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH brought with HIM GRACE. This does not imply that GRACE replace HIS LAW (TORAH)!!! GRACE came to give us a chance to repent hence sudden Judgement is not pronounced like it was in in days of old, for example, see how Aharon’s (Aaron’s) sons were killed as a result of carrying strange fire to YAH’S TENT OF MEETING (TABERNACLE).
The Goyim (Gentiles) who belong to YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH and are supposed to have accepted YAH’S SALVATION by now however they haven’t for various reasons are also included here.
Notice that YAHUVEH has the final say over the matter!
YAHUSHUA pleads on their behalf before THE VINE-DRESSER a.k.a HUSBANDSMAN, YAHUVEH who agrees to be GRACIOUS and MERCIFUL to the People for whom YAHUSHUA, HIS ONLY Begotten SON pleads for, HalleluYAH, HalleluYAH, HalleluYAH!
Note that 3 years is mentioned in verse 7. This refers to the time period of YAHUSHUA’S Ministry on earth . It also refers to YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S Death and Resurrection which occurred within a space of 3 days. The Number 3 implies COMPLETION.
GOD is 3 Persons in 1 – THE HOLY TRINITY GODHEAD!!!
The extra year (12 months – Divine Order) after that refers to the period we are in now – the one where YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH has ascended to the Heavens and us sitting at the Right Hand of GOD THE FATHER, YAHUVEH!
The manure represents SHEKINYAH GLORY a.k.a RUACH HA KODESH (HOLY SPIRIT)! Joel 2:28-30; Acts 2:1-4; Jeremiah 31:33-35. Through HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM, YAHUVEH wrote HIS TORAH (LAW) on our hearts, HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH!
The Hebrew word for manure is דשן – deshen. The Hebrew letters here are: Dalet, Shin and Nun.
Dalet means Door/Gate, Shin means King over fire, Tooth, etc; Nun means Son, Heir, Inheritance
Once deshen is added faster and better growth is encouraged. When YAH’S TORAH is written on HIS People’s hearts, the likelihood of BEARING MANY GOOD FRUIT is much higher and faster than when they receive the TORAH physically in their hands and then try to write it on their hearts.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says that our bodies are YAH’S TEMPLES hence we carry GOD everywhere we go. If we apply ourselves well, HOLY SPIRIT teaches us YAH’S TORAH and helps us to diligently observer it so as that our drakhim (ways) are well aligned with HIS, HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH!
This Hebrew word is translated as follows in English:
fertilizer, manure, fatness, abundance, oil.
HOLY SPIRIT who is metaphorically spoken of in Luke 13:6-9 as MANURE/FERTILISER, is also usually symbolised as OIL 🛢!
👍👉👍Matthew 25:1-13 talks about about having MORE THAN ENOUGH SPIRITUAL OIL.
Mattityahu 25:7-13 Orthodox Jewish Bible
7 Then all the ten alamot awakened and they trimmed their menorahs.
8 But the foolish said to the wise, Give us from your shemen (oil), for our menorahs are going out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Perhaps there might not be enough for us and for you. Instead, you go to the ones selling and buy for yourselves.
10 And as they were going away to buy, the Bias of the Choson (Bridegroom) occurred! The ones prepared entered with him into the Chasunoh (Wedding) feast and the door was shut.
11 And later, here comes also the other alamot, saying, Adoneinu, Adoneinu, open the door for us.
12 But he, in reply, said, Omein, I say to you, I do not know you.
13 Be shomer, be on the alert, therefore, for you do not have daas of the Yom or the Shaah (hour, time).
👍👉👍Additionally, Psalm 23 talks about OIL being poured over our heads and our CUPS OVERFLOW, HalleluYAH!
Tehillim 23:5 Orthodox Jewish Bible
5 Thou preparest a shulchan before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with shemen (olive oil); my kos runneth over.
👍👉👍Psalm 133 also talks about OIL 🛢 flowing from Aharon’s (Aaron’s) beard down to the rest of the People, Israel 🇮🇱 , in this case referring to how pleasant and good it is when brethene gather together in unity in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH to worship YAH, HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH 👏👏👏
1 Samuel 16:13 Complete Jewish Bible
13 Sh’mu’el took the HORN OF OIL 🛢 and anointed him there in his brothers’ presence. From that day on, the Spirit of YAHUVEH would fall upon David with power. So Sh’mu’el set out and went to Ramah.
The Birth of Samson
24 The woman gave birth to a boy and named him Samson.(AM) He grew(AN) and the Lord blessed him,(AO) 25 and the Spirit of the Lord began to stir(AP) him while he was in Mahaneh Dan,(AQ) between Zorah and Eshtaol.
ARE YOU NEED OF MORE OIL 🛢 ? Now is the time to ask YAH for a fresh in-filling to overflowing!!! OIL 🛢 TO OVERFLOWING will enable you to observe YAH’S TORAH diligently thereby helping you to increase your levels of HOLINESS before YAH SHADDAI, HalleluYAH!
It involves TOTAL SURRENDER (Matthew 11:28-30; Matthew 16:24-26) ans TOTAL SUBMISSION UNTO YAH SHADDAI Romans 12:1-2)!!!
Praise YAH ALMIGHTY for HIS CHEN (GRACE) and CHESED (MERCY/LOVING-KINDNESS)!👏👏👏
YAH is the GOD of second chances, HalleluYAH however, it doesn’t imply that we should take HIM for granted and continue to live as we please!
ABBA YAHUVEH repeatedly says in Amightywind Ministry Prophecy 153 that if we say we are under GRACE, we ought to be more repentant than ever before! To REPENT which is to TESHUVAH in the Hebrew language, is to TURN AROUND hence we make a conscious decision to stop sinning willfully!!!
GRACE IS NOT A LICENCE TO SIN AGAINST YAH!
Rather it is an expression of Undeserved Favour to give us room to change our ways by working hard to resist sin, resist the devil and to resist the world 🌎 so that we can be overcomes!
Yahushua (Joshua) 1:8 Orthodox Jewish Bible
8 This Sefer HATORAH shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate on it yomam valailah so that thou mayest be shomer to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy derech prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Joshua 1:8Complete Jewish Bible
8 Yes, keep this book of the TORAH on your lips, and meditate on it day and night, so that you will take care to act according to everything written in it. Then your undertakings will prosper, and you will succeed.
Psalm 1 Complete Jewish Bible
Book I: Psalms 1–41
1 How blessed are those
who reject the advice of the wicked,
don’t stand on the way of sinners
or sit where scoffers sit!
2 Their delight
is in YAHUVEH’S TORAH;
on his TORAH they meditate
day and night.
3 They are like trees planted by streams —
they bear their fruit in season,
their leaves never wither,
everything they do succeeds.
4 Not so the wicked,
who are like chaff driven by the wind.
5 For this reason the wicked
won’t stand up to the judgment,
nor will sinners
at the gathering of the righteous.
6 For YAHUVEH watches over
the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked
We pray that YAH helps us to bear many good fruit for HIM do that we don’t get cut off of the VINE, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH and thrown into the place of darkness and fire (hell)!!!
In this OMER COUNTING SEASON, we are checking the condition of our Spiritual Garments, our Spiritual Bodies, Our Spiritual Fruit. May YAH transform our lives and perfect all that concerns us, in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S Name, Amen!
We also pray that YAH SHADDAI speedily opens the Spiritual eyes of all HIS CHILDREN worldwide 🌐 whose names are written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE from before the foundations of the world 🌎 (Romans 8:29; etc) and they are therefore meant to be on the Cultivated Olive 🫒 Tree 🌳 so that they may offer their hearts to HIM and accept YAH’S SALVATION, in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S Name, Amen!
