"The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away."

The last of this series of verses that has focused us on death and life; lostness and salvation; and barrenness and revival. In verse 11 and 12, they are concluded with a semi-colon telling us that it is not complete, just yet. But here in this verse we have the period at the end of the verse, making it a complete thought, statement and directive. We have seen the beginning of winter passing in verse 11; the sings of life in verse 12 and now the continued evidence in this verse.

The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell - word study, give; Two demonstrations of winter passing, and spring coming; 'Green figs' and 'tender grapes' with blooms for a 'good smell', each showing new life and growth. Now see, the first part of this phrase - 'the tree puts forth fruit' - is this not the same that Christ used in John 14 - 16? The fruit comes from the tree and the source of its life. OUr life is found in Christ alone. He gives, He sustains, and He allows for us to produce in Him and for Him fruit that bears glory to His Name.
