Wherever figs have been planted, the soil is discovered to have been at one time a seabed. If the soil was a seabed, no human life existed in that part of the world. It was equivalent to a desert. That it is now inhabited by humans is an indication of the power of God to renew the cycle of life.
Whenever a new earth is planted, God calls land out of the sea, and he once again begins the cycle of life. The earth is first planted with figs when the sea recedes, and life begins anew. When death begins to gain control of the earth, the fig trees fail to bear fruit, the land gives way to the sea, and the cycle of life begins to wane. The Lord God Almighty is El Shaddai.
