Parable Wheat and Tares

The Parable in Matthew

Mat 13:24+ Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 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. Mat 13:27 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? 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.

Explanation by Jesus Christ

Mat 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 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.

2x2 Version

As a worker (and as many workers explain away this parable), I taught that:

  1. The workers were the ones sowing the seed (preaching at meetings).
  2. That the workers message produced the "wheat". The wheat were the professing people who love the workers, invite the workers over, love the meetings, buy things for the workers, attend the conventions and don't miss meetings.
  3. The "field" is their geographical space, literally called "the field" by the workers
  4. The tares are like the people who don't have the workers over, miss meetings, don't give "take part" each Sunday, miss conventions, ask questions and eventually "fall away" / quit coming to their preaching sessions
  5. The Servants are likened to the workers asking God what to do about the "unfaithful" people who miss meetings and don't invite them over
  6. The tares are thrown into the fire. - > The people who quit professing become "bitter", have a life of hell, are "mental" and need medications
  7. The alleged "offenses" are: asking questions the workers don't like, telling people the truth about the workers, asking how the group was founded exposing them etc
  8. "his kingdom" is likened to the professing people all around the world
  9. The "righteous" are all the professing people who faithfully attend meetings.
  10. "Who hath ears to hear" - In other words, pay attention, if you don't receive this warning, you might start asking questions, quit coming meetings and "become bitter"

Uses of Misuse

Workers commonly read themselves into the Bible. Wherever you find Jesus doing something, they just inject themselves into the story. They use the Bible as a weapon to scare people into coming to more meetings. When people are offended at the garbage that the workers teach, then the workers and their followers may call them "bitter". When Jesus Christ refers to His kingdom, the workers inject their organization.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
