The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

The underlying cause of all of this sin within this Nation and within the House of the Lord can be traced directly back to the obsessive self-centered, self-aggrandizing, culture that rose in the 1970’s. That lifestyle of selfishness and rebellion was then brought into the House of the Lord and codified in an assortment of doctrines and traditions that have served to make two standing generations of “so-called believers” who are in reality nothing but tares, happy in their sin and corruption and thereby inoculate such “so called believers” against any preaching of Sin Righteousness, and Judgment. 

We note there that Jesus Christ Himself prophesied that in the last days that such an overthrow of the wheat in the church would occur by the tares to the place that one could look out in the fields of the Kingdom and see nothing but tares as far as the eye could see as the remaining wheat would become so sparsely scattered and overshadowed by the tares in the field – that it would become virtually invisible to the naked eye.

Matthew 13:34-30 Another parable put he (Christ) forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, (The preachers and teachers and watchmen upon the walls) his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, (Acting all shocked surprised and dismayed these servants reply) Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? (Here these lazy careless sleeping servants say “it wasn’t us” and then proceed indirectly to blame God, and put out the proposition that it was the seed of the gospel that He sowed that was at fault for the rise of these tares in the fields.) from whence then hath it tares? (Indirectly these same slothful servants declare that the Gospel they were supposed to teach was flawed and somehow produced the tares,  rather their having strayed the teaching of the pure Gospel of Christ and pure scripture in favor of the populist man centered doctrines and traditions that they have taught for centuries this has caused the rise of the tares under their watch over the fields) He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. (In the parable Christ will have none of the corrupt accusations of the blind leading the blind, knowing full well that the devil and his hireling angels of the light of darkness have done this as they sowed their populist man centered doctrines and traditions for generations to produce what we see all around us today) The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, (This is should given one great pause as to their submitting themselves and discipling themselves to the preachers and teachers of our day.) Nay; (This is an utter vote of no confidence that Christ has neither faith nor trust in the corrupt slothful and selfish and self-appointed preachers and teachers of our day.) lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. (Christ is further stating that if these “End-time” preachers and teachers were to get their hands on the “hidden wheat” that yet remains they would up root and destroy it as well.)

Let both grow together until the harvest: (Christ here declares to these careless, slothful, and sleeping preachers and teachers of the last days, that they have been stripped of their ministry, and that they no longer have any authority over the fields of His kingdom.) and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, (Christ here calls none of these slothful servants to do the work of the ministry, but rather Christ calls into His service others to do the work His servants should have normally been doing. Just as Christ stripped the vineyard away from the Scribes and Pharisees and the Sanhedrin so in these last days has Jesus Christ stripped away the vineyard from the self appointed hirelings that rule the churches and denominations of this day.[Answering the cry that arose a generation ago “Where is the power of God.”]) Gather ye together first the (The many of the) tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: (casting out all that shall cause offense in the kingdom) but (And then) gather the (The few of the) wheat into my barn. (These “called” reapers, these “Divinely appointed” reapers have been given the discernment and power to remove the tares without uprooting or causing the least harm to the “hidden wheat” that is to remain to the very end. [So much for the idea of a rapture for the hidden wheat.])

Understand that Jesus Christ in the parable of the wheat and the tares is citing the words of Isaiah the prophet. And knowing these things by the Spirit gives me the power to rightly divide the word of truth in this parable that we may understand what Christ spake to His disciples in private.

Isaiah 56:9-11 All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest. His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

By rightly linking the parable of the tares to the scripture Christ was citing [Rightly dividing the word of truth 2 Timothy 2:15]  we can plainly see why when Christ spoke these parables that the Pharisees and other rabbinical orders of the Sanhedrin were infuriated and wanted to destroy Him.

2 Corinthians 6:14-15  -- For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial (satan)? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? (The unfaithful aka the tares)

This choking and strangling by the unbridled lust for the things of this world by design renders quasi-children of light and darkness -- fruitless, (That they shall be gathered and burned) it renders them as salt that has no savor, (That they shall be cast out and trampled underfoot) it renders them as lukewarm (That they shall be vomited out of Christ’s body).

How great is the darkness of Bible Believing and Spirit-Filled Christians that abandoned the word of God for a bunch of feel-good psychobabble that has rendered them spiritually fruitless and in abject sin and rebellion before God?

How great is the darkness of most Bible-Believing and Spirit –Filled Christians’ whose marriages today are either on the verge of failure, or have already failed?

How great is the darkness of these Christian husbands and wives unrighteously separated or unrighteously divorced as they will not and do not fall on their faces before God and repent and then proactively seek to be reconciled one to another?

Have we really been so beguiled from the word of God and Christ’s commandments that we have willingly handed over to the serpent our birthright in Christ and the blessed fruitfulness of His blessing in exchange for our being wretched, miserable, naked and blind?

Revelation 3:15-17 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue (Vomit) thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest,  (According to the light in thee that has become a great darkness) I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Christ is declaring here that those in the Laodicean hour have been swindled, hoodwinked, and been robbed blind by the subtle salesmanship of the serpent and his angels of light and darkness.  So as it was in the beginning in the garden with Adam where he committed high treason against the Kingdom of  Heaven when the man Adam willingly gave over his spiritual birthright (His dominion) to the serpent, and willingly gave over the blessing of fruitfulness (Of his household and of the field), so also in like manner each and everyone of these quasi-children of light and darkness within the Klesia (The called) have also committed high treason against Jesus Christ and His Kingdom when they willingly surrender their spiritual birthright as a child of God, and surrender God’s blessing of fruitfulness, in exchange for the fruit the doctrines and traditions of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  And in so doing these have nullified the work of Jesus Christ, who purchased and redeemed them with His own blood.

Hebrews 3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

This is a fearful thing, we live in a fearful hour where the Ek-Klesia and the Klesia are fighting for their very life and existence.
