The common fig tree is called Ficus carica. This tree has a long juvenile period and does not produce fruit for the first four to five years after being planted. In other words, the fig remains a child-tree for a period of time before maturing into adulthood. Adult fig trees produce two crops every year. The early crops are frequently small, acidic and inferior, only good for preserving. The latter crop of figs has edible fruit. Interestingly, fig trees produce their fruit before leaves.

Dancing on the Water – February 17
This moment became an ‘appointed time’. We got up from our seats, and in the center of the boat danced to Kadosh. It was an inspirational moment to dance ‘on the sea’ of Galilee with a Messianic Jew singing Kadosh. Daniel played a few more Hebrew worship songs. We unloaded the boat to the dock to the song, “Days of Elijah”.
