THE PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE
Ryan Habbena, 2009
Have you learned the parable of the fig tree? If not, you are commanded by Jesus to learn this lesson. End-times speculation and scenarios continue to flood the land. how are we to discern the true markers of Christ's return from the false? The Lord ha announced the signs and conditions that will herald His return. We are called to read and pay attention. He Himself warned us: "Take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance" (Mark 13:23). In this book, pastor and teacher Ryan Habbena explores the scripture's primary texts regarding the second coming of Jesus Christ and the events that surround this glorious event. By taking the reader through the Olivet Discourse, the books of Daniel and Revelation, and the Thessalonian epistles, Habbena teaches how we should learn and apply the "parable of the fig tree" in order to be watching and well-prepared for the return of the King of Kings.
Unlike other books from a prewrath perspective, Habbena approaches the topic from the context of the Olivet Discourse and the other scriptural texts that bear directly upon it. He also regularly contrasts, and argues for, the issue of the applicability of the parable to the modern church in contrast to two other, highly divergent viewpoints, pretribulationism and preterism. View: Premillennial, Pre-Wrath.
