The sentence is, Cut down the barren tree: Bear fruit, or else thine end will cursed be. Hast thou been digg'd about . Hast thou been digg'd about and dunged too, Will neither patience nor yet dressing do? The executioner is come, O tree, Bear fruit, or else thine end will cursed be! He that about thy roots takes pains to dig, Would, if on thee were found but one good fig, Preserve thee from the axe: but, barren tree, Bear fruit, or else thy end will cursed be! The utmost end of patience is at hand, 'Tis much if thou much longer here doth stand. O cumber-ground, thou art a barren tree

The barren fig-tree, or the doom and downfall of the fruitless professor. a certain man had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on the fig-tree, and find none: cut IT down; why cumbereth IT the ground?

What, barren here! in this so good The sight of this doth make God’s From giving thee his blessing; bar Bear .

What, barren here! in this so good The sight of this doth make God’s From giving thee his blessing; bar Bear fruit, or else thine end will Art thou not planted by the water . Know’st not thy Lord by fruit is glorified? The sentence is, Cut down the barren tree: Bear fruit, or else thine end will cursed be. Hast thou been digg’d about and dunged too, Will neither patience nor yet dressing do? The executioner is come, O tree, Bear fruit, or else thine end will cursed be!

The Barren Fig Tree is John Bunyan's exposition of Luke 13:6-9 the parable of the man who planted a fig tree that did not bear fruit.Bunyan teaches that the following are metaphors in this parable-The man who plants the fig tree-God the Father,The Vineyard-The Church,The Fig Tree-one who professes faith in God,the dresser-The Lord Jesus Christ,the fruitless tree-an empty profession of faith.The author of,the Pilgrims Progress,has a strong evangelistic application throughout this treatise-"fruit is not so easily brought forth as a profession is got into... ."

As far as individuals,the most striking example of a barren fig tree,would have to be the one who betrayed Jesus-Judas who was one of the apostles,a preacher,one who knew and interacted with the Lord Jesus.Bunyan says of Judas-"...he in Christ's eye was the barren fig tree,a devil,a fruitless professor." In the parable of the wise and foolish virgins(the foolish professors were fruitless professors).The prophets often condemned the nation of Israel for not bringing forth fruit unto God-Hosea 10:1 'Israel is an empty vine,he brings forth fruit unto himself'-"...none to God;he is without fruit to God." The warning in Matthew 7:21-23 to those who call Jesus Lord(and do many works in his name)Bunyan writes of them that Christ-"...finds nothing in them but the fruits of unrighteousness." Those that profess to be God's people cannot live unholy lives and expect the Lord Jesus to own them,as one of his,on the day of judgement.That is to engage in great folly,or self deceit,to think in that manner.

What a person is 'In Reality' is how they appear to God.It is wise to catechize ourselves-Am I a fruitful or a barren fig tree? Is the grace of God operative in your life,to make you fruitful unto God? A graceless professor is one of the saddest things this side of heaven? Bunyan asks the question-Is there greater presumption,to be found,than a man who lacks grace,to identify himself as one of God's people? To represent yourself as belonging to God,when this is not true of you,is something that Mr.Bunyan asserts is learned from the devil-"...for he,and only he,with these his disciples,attempt to present themselves in the Church before God." This can be seen in 'The Parable Of The Wheat And The Tares'-'The tares are the children of the wicked one'.These tares will not escape 'The Damnation Of Hell'.

All of John Bunyan's writings are searching and have a powerful evangelistic component to them.I believe he is one of the great evangelist's in the history of God's Church.The Barren Fig Tree is one of his works that help support this assertion.
