Fig (Leaves)

Genesis 3:7 (c) These leaves may be a type of human righteousness which is used as a shield to hide human sins. The fig tree produces beautiful, large, soft, velvety leaves which are very attractive and lovely to feel. Man's religion is quite like that. He knows he is not fit to stand in the presence of GOD, and so he manufactures a religious program and thinks that this will be sufficient. Fig leaves shrink very quickly, and reduce in size to about one-fourth their original size. Thus they fail to hide the parts as they should. So it is with human religions. They are not sufficient to cover man's sin and need. Only the Blood of CHRIST is sufficient as a covering that satisfies the demands of GOD.
