This week’s topic: Faith In God

One day Jesus is looking within some leaves and could not find any fruit on a fig tree, for the fruit appears the same time as the leaves do on a fig tree. Jesus then SPOKE to the fig tree out loud, for The Bible tells us that the disciples heard Him.  Next Jesus and the disciples go to the temple and then in the evening they leave the City.  The Bible then tells us, “In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look!  The fig tree you cursed has withered!”  22 “HAVE FAITH IN GOD,” Jesus answered.  23 “I tell you the truth, if anyone SAYS to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and DOES NOT DOUBT IN HIS HEART BUT BELIEVES that what he SAYS will happen, it WILL BE DONE for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, and IT WILL BE yours.” (Mark 11:20-24)

Jesus speaks to this tree, this object and the disciples hear it.  So, Jesus spoke out loud to an OBJECT and told it what to do.  Then what happened?  TIME!  He spoke to the tree and then the next morning they are all walking by the tree again.  Now, Jesus did NOT spend all night after He spoke to that tree and doubt or worry if what He said to the object was going to happen or not.
