Jer 24 The Two Basket of Figs
In the parable of the figs, God sent Jeremiah to the Temple to learn the lesson of how he determines men’s hearts. Looking at the figs, one could think that the ripe figs would not be deported by the enemy but stay and be used in the kingdom to teach and honor God. But, no! God wanted him to see that God took the perfect figs to protect them in Babylon, and there the true priests would teach the next generation for when the 70 yrs. of captivity would end. God would protect them there in that faraway land. Truly: “His plans are not like man’s. His plans are higher” [Is 55:8-9]

Nebuchadnezzar was not a fool. He wanted the “young men in whom there was no physical defect and who were handsome, well versed in all kinds of wisdom, well-educated and having keen insight, and who were capable of entering the king’s royal service.” [Dan 1:3]

So why leave the rotten figs? God was showing Jeremiah and the people that He was leaving them to show them their depravity and waiting for them to change their ways. How often do we look at our world and wonder why God takes some early and some later? God took those “ripe” figs, Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Ezekiel, to protect them for when the 70 yrs. of captivity would be over. Truly the ways of God are not like ours.
