King Anointed – Olive, Fig, Vine, Thorn in Jdg 9
Continuing on the Series “Its All about Anointing and Crowning the King” we look at the Parable of the Trees in Judges 9 showing the marvelous sacrifice paid and suffering Christ endured in His 1st Coming is rewarded with great power and glory in His 2nd Coming.
The Parable of All the Trees is stated in Luk 21:29 would include the Olive, Fig, Vine and Thorn when the trees go about Anointing a King as seen in Judges 9.
Weve seen how Mat 21 and Ps 118 with Esther 6 give insight into the “Hosanna Procession” in heaven. Now we’ll look at how the Olive, Fig, Vine and Thorn are seen in crucifixion dispaying the Anointed King through suffering, humiliation, pain and death for the sins of mankind.
So in the place of Olives the King is Anointed for burial, the Fig Tree is cursed, the Vineyard is where they killed the Son and placed a crown of Thorns on His Head.

– Fig Tree Jdg 9:10 And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, and reign over us. But the fig tree said unto them, Should I forsake my sweetness, and my good fruit, and go to be promoted (shaken) over the trees?

° Mat 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a Vineyard, hedged it round about, digged a Winepress in it, and built a Tower, and let it out to husbandmen. 38 when the husbandmen saw the Son, they said “This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.”
-Bramble/Thorn Jdg 9:14 Then said all the trees unto the bramble, Come thou, and reign over us. And the bramble said unto the trees, If in truth ye anoint me king over you, then come and put your trust in my shadow: and if not, let fire come out of the bramble, and devour the cedars of Lebanon.
° Mat 27:29 And when they (soldiers) had platted a crown of Thorns, they put it upon his head
The fig tree cursed represents any king anointed before Jesus Christ is cursed.
He Cleansed the Temple overthrowing the Seats then…
Mat 21:19 he Hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
The fig tree withered is in Jer 8:13 the figs withered
He’s saying, “No one can take this Seat, no one can be anointed king until i come back!”
“Anyone that tries to take this Seat in this temple will be cursed”
The fig tree represents seats in the temple and anointing a king. See also:
