The Tares

Postby Itiswrittenkjv1611 » Mon Nov 07, 2016 10:56 am

Matthew 13:24-30

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, 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, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 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.

Jesus explains

Mat 13:37-43 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

The overall point of the parable is this

There will be a time when the righteous will be completely separated from the wicked. That time won't come until the end of the world. Until then, the two must coexist, time must run it's course. The tares and the wheat are tied in together and rooting up the tares may also pull up wheat. People who are lost can produce children who can become saved. Rooting them up early would prevent their children from being born and saved.

Other important points from the parable

Jesus gives us two types in the field, the tares and the wheat. The difference between the two is that the wheat bears fruit and the tares are fruitless. Only the wheat will enter the kingdom of Heaven. There is no such thing as a fruitless born again Christian.
