Matthew Chapter 21 - The Curse of the Fig Trees

Jul 10, 2022    Pastor Joseph Spurgeon

Pastor Spurgeon preaches from Matthew 21 on Christ's curse of the fig tree. In this curse, we see an example of Christ's power to judge and are exhorted to leave behind hypocrisy for an unwavering faith in Christ.

Matthew 21:18-22:

Now in the early morning, when He was returning to the city, He became hungry. And seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves alone; and He *said to it, “No longer shall there ever be any fruit from you.” And at once the fig tree withered.

Seeing this, the disciples were amazed and asked, “How did the fig tree wither all at once?” And Jesus answered and said to them, “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen. And whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive it all.”
