THE PARABLE OF THE WHEAT & TARES

24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Holy Spirit revealed this parable to me:
“The good seed is the Word of God, Luke 8:11, Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
(As it is in all the parables concerning “seed”)
Vs. 25, “But while men slept,…”
The enemy also has seed; his word, his seeds are lies, false doctrines and deception. (The devil’s “seed” steals, chokes, and lies (John 10:10). This is found in the Parable of the Sower.)
In the end, at the time of the final harvest: the tares will be taken out and thrown in the fire. The lies and false doctrines that satan has fed the churches for thousands of years will be weeded out. Then the truth, the revealing of Jesus Christ will be made manifested.
In the end, nothing but the Word of God will stand. It can not be shaken nor can it burn. The Word, Jesus, will carry us through the fire.
I Cor. 3:13, Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
“Every man’s work” will be tried and burned. This is the burning of the tares. The good seed, the Works of Christ are eternal. His works are pure and holy. They have already been tried and they are not found wanting.
