In 1948 Israel became a nation. Is this the fulfillment of Matthew 24:32, which speaks of the fig tree blossoming?
No doubt about it! When Israel became a nation————- May 14, 1948——— that’s when the fig tree blossomed! How do I know that Israel is the fig tree? The law of first mention. When anything is mentioned the first in Scripture, it becomes that throughout God’s Word. For Instance, Joel 1:7 tells us that when the enemy armies were invading Israel, he hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree (Israel). Then of course, Hosea 9:10 says, I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree. Here, again God is speaking to Jews. Thus, the fig tree is Israel.
