The real danger and catastrophe which Jesus points out is that an unforeseen disaster or a unexpected death does not give us time to repent of our sins and to set up ourselves to meet the Judge of heaven and earth. The Book of Job reminds us that trouble and calamity can befall both the moral and the unrighteous alike. Jesus gives a clear caution - take liability for your actions and moral choices and put sin to death today before it can obliterate your heart, mind, soul, and body as well. Unapologetic sin is like a cancer which corrupts us from within. If it is not eliminated through regret - asking God for forgiveness and pardon for his healing loveliness, it leads to a spiritual death which is far worse than physical demolition. Jesus' parable of the barren fig trees says his warning about the cost of allowing sin and dishonesty to take root in our hearts and minds. Fig trees were a common and important source of food for the people biblical place of Palestine. A fig tree normally developed within three years, producing abundant fruit. If it unsuccessful, it was cut down to make room for more well trees. A rotten fig tree and its bad fruit came to represent for the Jews the consequence of spiritual dishonesty caused by evil deeds and unrepentant sin. The unfruitful fig tree symbolized the outcome of Israel's indifference to the word of God. The prophet says the misery and calamity of Israel, due to her infidelity to God, as a languishing fig tree. Why does God judge his people? He judges to cleanse and purify us of all sin that we might grow in his sanctity and righteousness. And he disciplines us for our own good, to inspire a godly fear and respect for him and his word. God is tolerant, but for those who tirelessly and stubbornly insurgent against him and refuse to repent, there is the result that they will lose their soul to hell. Our God's judgments unjust or unloving? When God's judgments are exposed in the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. To say God's judgment on sin is much less cruel than what will happen if those who sin are not warned to regret .
