“He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man.”
38The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.
39The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.
40Therefore, as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age.
41The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness,
42and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
43Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Matthew 13:37-43)
Yahshua is explaining to His Disciples a Parable we call the “Sower”. This is probably the most revealing Parable there is in helping us to understand our place in the end times that are upon us now.
He equates the world to a field of wheat, and says that there are those among us who are not His, but have been positioned by Satan / the enemy. He calls them Tares or weeds! But the good seed are those whom He has called, and who belong to Him.
“He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man.”
The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.” (Vs 37-39)
Now His stage is set, He knows who is His and who is not, but belongs to the Devil. And the harvest is coming sooner than we know.
“Therefore, as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age.
The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” (Vs 40-42)
So, here we are, the tares are being gathered by His Angels, and cast into a fire. And as He says this is the end of days. They are gathering weeds, good for nothing folks who have been just taking up space and hindering the growth of the good seed. That hinderance is being removed!
“Gathering all things that offend” He says. And adds to that, “Those who practice lawlessness.” So, is he actually saying that those who have attempted to abolish God’s law, and live outside of the Commandments are weeds / tares? It seems so! He makes no bones about it, and is quite clear on this point. If we have called on His name and at the same time been a practitioner of lawlessness, we can at this time kiss or posterior goodbye!
Here is the same thing Yahshua had said In Matthew 7:22, 23. “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
He will cast aside those who practice lawlessness!
Now these folks have been deceived into thinking that they don’t have to obey God’s law. They even think that they are righteous and justified by Grace, how insane is that, when everything in the scriptures says otherwise.
1st John 2:3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.
4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.
6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
Deuteronomy 4:2 “You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.”
So, here we see the Lies of Satan manifest, the deception is, and always has been, that we don’t have to keep God’s word. Even from the garden of Eden, when Eve had her encounter with Satan, that was his message. And the same message is still being delivered today, by Satan’s agents, from the pulpit of most Churches today.
Is it any wonder that there will be Wailing and gnashing of teeth at the time of their second death?
Yahshua said, “There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” (Vs 42)
He knows the anger and upset that these folks will suffer, because all along they thought they were following Christ the Messiah of Israel, but in reality, their itching ears led them into Apostacy. They were serving the Anti-Christ and didn’t know it.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (2nd Timothy 4:3, 4)
The Anti-Christ is called the Lawless one for a reason!
2nd Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only £He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
Consider this as an attempt to save those who are currently the property of the Anti-Christ. You have been slated for destruction for over 2000 years, because you have been duped by Satan and His minions.
Come out from among them and separate yourselves from the lies and deception.
For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?
And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.” (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17)
