TARES among WHEAT

 

Matthew 13:27

King James Version

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?


The world can be likened to wheat, and tares.

There's the good seed, and the bad seed.

The pure, and the contaminant.

Both must exist.

Both are allowed, for GOD's purpose.

In the parable JESUS gave, tares were sown by the enemy:

Matthew 13:24-25

King James Version

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.


So, the servants ask:

Matthew 13:27-28

King James Version

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?


And the householder wisely answers:

Matthew 13:29-30

King James Version

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.


Whatever people are doing now, to contaminate pure efforts to help others, will take its own course.

People will have to make a stand:

To serve GOD, or mammon?

To serve JESUS, or money?

To serve others, or self?

By the fruits of our labor will our hearts be revealed.

Galatians 6:9-10

King James Version

9 And let us not be weary in well doing: 

for in due season we shall reap, 

if we faint not.

10 As we have therefore opportunity, 

let us do good unto all men, 

especially unto them who are of the household of faith.


Psalm 1

King James Version

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not 

in the counsel of the ungodly, 

nor standeth in the way of sinners, 

nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 

and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, 

that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; 

his leaf also shall not wither; 

and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so: 

but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, 

nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: 

but the way of the ungodly shall perish.


Whatever seed we plant -- literally and figuratively -- we're all responsible for it.

JUDGMENT comes, through JESUS.

Revelation 20:12-13

King James Version

12 And I saw the dead, 

small and great, 

stand before God; 

and the books were opened: 

and another book was opened, 

which is the book of life: 

and the dead were judged 

out of those things which were written in the books, 

according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; 

and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: 

and they were judged every man according to their works.
