Hi to all , and what this parable is saying is a quote from Isa 5:7 . And in verse 6 , A certain man ( speaking of the FATHER ) had a Fig Tree planted in His vineyard , and the ( FATHER ) came and sought fruit thereon , and found none . Matt 3:8 . In verse 7 , He said unto the DRESSER ( which is Jesus ) of His vineyard , Behold , these 3 YEARS ( the beginning of Jesus earthly ministry ) I have come seeking fruit on this FIG Tree ( fig tree is Israel ) and find none , cut it down why are you letting this fig tree take up SPACE . Then in verse 8 Jesus answers the FATHER , said unto Him ( LORD/JEHOVAH ) , let it alone this year also , till I shall dig about it and Fertilizer . Then in verse 9 , And if it bear fruit good , and if not , then after that thou shall cut it down . We see from Matt 3:10 , that the AXE is ready to cut Israel off . There are many conclusions as to what happens to Israel and the #1 , is that Israel is set aside , until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in , Rom 11:25 , and Israel was set aside in 70 AD .
