You are listening to Time in the Word.

Jesus said in Matthew 24:32-35, Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Dr. Gonzalez explains that the Lord Jesus Christ uses the illustration of the fig tree to teach us the importance of being a discerning people and how to be a discerning people. As we are able to discern the coming of summer because of the blossoming of the fig tree, so can we discern, without making the mistake of setting dates, the second coming of Christ as we see certain events coming to pass.
