The wheat and the tares

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you!

I was reading in the BIBLE about the wheat and the tares in 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.

This parable is about true and false believers working along side one another. See how JESUS said they grow up together. Obviously the wheat in the parable are the saved children of GOD, but let's look at the tares.

Tares, or Lolium Temulentum, are typically known as a Darnel or Cockle. It usually grows in the same production zones as wheat and is considered a weed. The similarity between these two plants is so close in resemblance, that in some regions cockle is referred to as "false wheat." It bears close resemblance to wheat until the ear appears. The ears on the real wheat become so heavy it causes the plant to droop, but the "false wheat", whose ears are light, stands up straight.

Also according to the encyclopedia, Tares parasite wheat fields. A parasite is an organism that grows, feeds, and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host. One of the characteristics of the tares are the making of one feel poisoned with drunkenness.

GOD establishes HIS Church and builds up HIS body of believers, and satan sends his people among the true believers to try to infect the Church with his poison. The BIBLE also says we will be able to decipher if someone is a true Christian by the good fruit they bear. (Luke 6:43) As the "false wheat" will give itself away eventually by the ears not drooping down, the false converts will eventually give themselves away, some may not, but a majority will. How? By their lifestyles. Can you see GOD's WORD being lived out in their lives? Or do they go to Church on Sunday and praise GOD with their mouths and actions, to leave and live an opposite life?

It was no different with JESUS. JESUS had a false disciple among HIM. Judas was a disciple to JESUS, made relationships with the other disciples, and they had no idea he was stealing from the offering. (John 12:6) No one would have expected Judas as being a traitor. The scripture says in Matthew 26:21,22, And as they did eat, HE said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, LORD, is it I? They had no idea he was not really one of them, so seeing bad fruit in a non-believer may not aways be apparent, but it is something we should not really be looking for either.

We are to do our FATHER's will and love everyone, and if you see someone whom you think could be a false believer, pray about it and then approach him/her LOVINGLY about their sin condition. Get them to understand that you care enough about their eternal life to talk to them about it. Always show them what the scripture says about the subject and let the HOLY SPIRIT do the rest. Never input your opinion, only GOD's WORD. GOD's WORD never returns void.

After studying a bit on satanism, I found that this cult trains people to go into Christian Churches to tear them apart. Girls are taught to go and seduce the men, especially the pastor. If satan can tear down the leader then he can divide and conquer the Church. If not, they are trained to cause divorce in the Church. They also teach young girls that it is acceptable to dress provocatively to cause lusting in the Church. The cult teaches their women to go into BIBLE study leader positions to mislead the ladies into thinking that their busyness within the Church is for GOD, but the things being done are not even what GOD said to do. It is always so subtle, that it is not noticeable until they have succeeded.

I knew a Church that had a female from the satanic cult try to seduce the pastor, he refused her, and he saw through her charade, and called her out in front of the congregation that following Sunday, and she laughed very loud on the way out as she left. She then went to another Church and did the same thing, but that time she succeeded. The two pastors were acquaintances and that is how the first pastor found out.

The cult teaches the men to go into leadership positions to make changes on the board that would tear down the Church instead of build it up. The suggestions are so subtle that it causes no alarm to the other board members. For example, (Cult member talking)"Hey, I noticed that no one is really coming to Wednesday night prayer time, I bet we could get folks to come if we implement a Christian drama class in its place or replace it with a Wednesday night fellowship dinner". If no one challenges him, he will more than likely get his way. Once prayer is removed, it is not long until the Church will fail.

Whoever the non-believer is, they need JESUS. I believe that is the reason GOD does not want to uproot them before harvest, some will be saved, but the scripture is clear what happens to the tares.

Remember do not go around and look for the non-believers to judge them, but love everyone as they are your heavenly family. This is written only to warn of the witnessing need within the Church. Only approach someone if you truly believe they are not saved, because sometimes it is just Biblical ignorance on their part. GOD will separate the wheat and tares... in HIS time.

GOD Bless You!
