I would wonder, if this tree was planted there on purpose or was it a volunteer. Who knows if my own fig tree is a volunteer or not? My tree is close to the fence line. I mean would someone do that on purpose?
It seems that one might want to plan ahead for the growth of the tree.
Well, let's get back to this tree in the picture. This tree is very close to the fence line. Well, what do I think? Now this is only my opinion. Since this tree looks younger than my tree. I think that a bird or birds ate a bunch of figs from my tree and later sat on the fence there.
Well a bird does not control when they will let go of their dung. So while the bird or birds were on the fence their droppings dropped on the other side of the fence with the fig seeds inside their dung. That is where the tree is now.
I don't think that a homeowner would deliberately plant a tree so close to the fence line, but a bird will drop his or her dropping where ever they are.
This I would wonder also that a fig tree is at my mom's house but it is right on the fence line. Could that also be a volunteer from bird droppings also?
Isn't it God's plan to spread vegetation through out the world? So we see where the different birds have their value. So certain trees are planted not by man, but by birds and that is good.
Did you notice that one of the first trees mentioned in the Bible is the fig tree? It was the fig leaves that Adam and Eve put on them as they knew that they were naked after they partook of the tree of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil.
It was the down fall of all of us. That is why Jesus came, to bring back the fellowship of man and God as in the days before the fall of man.
Yet the works of man is evil, the rebellion of the commandments of God. This reminds me of a scripture, as it is written, Whoso simple, let him turn in hither: and him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, Stolen waters are sweet, and bread in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead there; her guests in the depths of hell. Proverbs 9:16-18.
This reminds me of another scripture, as it is written, For the lips of a strange woman drop an honeycomb, and her mouth smoother than oil: But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. Proverbs 5:3-5.
Let's look at that fruit of the knowledge of good and evil again. Let's look at that word evil, notice that it is the word live backwards. So what does that mean? Well, to me, it means that when you live your life backwards, you are living your life in evil.
I look and I see how we have taken the Bible out of the schools and prayer too. I believe that is a satanic agenda. It is to make the masses forget God. To forget Jesus. That is why we are to meditate on the law of God day and night. As it is written, But his delight in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psalm 1:2.
Let's end with a scripture, as it is written, with Jesus speaking, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10.
