Letís continue with on our Tell me the story of Jesus Bible study adventure by taking the Wheat and Tares Bible field trip with a bit of Bible Wheat and Tares Parable trivia. Do you know what a tare is? It's a weed found in a grain field. Kinda like a weed in a garden. In short, it is something that you do not want in your garden or yard.
As you read through the Wheat and Tares Bible prophecy parable, think about all the things in life that can be deemed as tares or weeds in your life. That's an overwhelming thought isn't it? Pretend your mind is the garden. The weeds could be anything. From the filthy commercials on television or on your mobile devices and ads on the Internet to bad thoughts we have all the time. You know ... Anger, jealousy, lust, greed, etc.
Well, just remember, if you keep pulling these weeds, or
poisoning them with TRUTH, you can keep things in control, but just
like any garden, if you let things get out of hand and let too many
weeds grow, you'll end up with a mess that will definitely take time,
effort and pain that could have been avoided.
We'll talk about that a bit more as we continue our Wheat and Tares Parable voyage and even provide you with an absolutely awesome Renewing your mind program to assist you in removing the tares and weeds from your own Spiritual garden and to do so daily. But, for now, let's get to the Bible Wheat and Tares Parable story.
Jesus said, The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man that
planted good seed in his field, but while his workers slept, his enemy
came and planted weeds among the wheat and snuck away.
Isn't that exactly how it happens too? Sometimes
it's when you're asleep -- maybe you'll have a dream where a bad seed
is planted. Sometimes in the morning you'll remember the dream and
sometimes you won't. On the days when bad seeds were planted in your
dreams and you don't remember the dream, you can just feel it the next
day, that something is wrong, but you don't know what.
The Wheat and Tares Bible Parable teaches us that when that
happens, always pray for God to remove any evil that may have been
planted in you without your knowledge in your dreams. On the mornings
when you do remember your dream, pull that weed right away by telling
the dream out loud, which exposes it to light (remember, weeds or lies
or anything evil likes darkness). Then expose the TRUTH about the
I'll give you a simple example of the Wheat and Tares Bible philosophy, just so you know how
to do this because this technique of pulling weeds is different than
putting on your gardening gloves and wielding your rake and shovel to
the dirt. Let's say you had a dream that you robbed a bank. I know
it's silly, but go with me. You wake up, and the first thing to do
would be to say, "In my dream I robbed a bank.
Now, let's tell truth. Obviously. you wouldn't do that. You probably don't even believe in stealing. So, the first thing you do is expose this weed to the light of TRUTH ... Tell your enemy something like "The eighth
commandment says, Thou shalt not steal" or "That dream was a
ridiculous lie" or "The Bible says Jesus clothes the fields and feeds
the birds and I am more important to Him than a bird so He will surely
take care of me" ... That should pretty much take care of it. You go
on with your day and things go well.
Now, let's look at what could've happened if you
didn't pull that weed according to the Bible Wheat and Tares Parable ... You wake up and remember the dream. You go on
with your day and you sigh heavily when you remember you have three
overdue bills. Suddenly the dream pops into your head. You start to
ponder on all the things you could do with a lot of money. You get
depressed. You shake your head to bring you back to reality.
While you're on your way to work you see a wallet fall out of someone's
pocket in the elevator. You normally would pick it up and immediately
give it back to them, knowing how you'd feel if you were the one who
lost it. This time, you pick it up and hesitate, wanting to keep it.
Finally you give it back to the person it belongs to and you see the
grateful expression in their eyes. They tell you what a righteous
person you are and you smile but inside ... You KNOW.
Oh, but wait ... There is more to this similitude based on the Wheat and Tares Bible warning. Now you feel doubt about your righteousness, which makes you do poorly at work. Your mind seems preoccupied with things
for the whole day and you get a speeding ticket on your way home
because you weren't paying attention to your driving. See how a seed
can grow so quickly if you don't use truth to kill it from the get go? And all of this
because of a tiny little seed in a dream. Yank that rascal quick
because, as we all know a little seed that becomes a plant can become a
tree and they are much harder to pull up.
We'd better start back at the beginning of the Bible Wheat and Tares Parable now. Jesus said, that the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man that planted good seed in his field, but while his workers slept, his enemy
came and planted weeds among the wheat and went his way. But when the
seed had sprouted and began to produce grain, then the weeds appeared
too. So the field workers came and said to the field owner, Sir,
didn't you plant good seed in your field? Why is it full of weeds?
He answered them, saying an enemy did this. The workers asked, Do you want us to
go and pull them? But he answers, No, because while you're pulling
them, you might pull the wheat up along with them. Let both grow
together until the harvest, then I'll tell the reapers, First pull the
weeds and tie them in bundles and burn them, but gather the wheat and
put it into my barn.
Jesus sent the crowds of people away who were
listening to the Wheat and Tares Bible Parable and went into the house. His disciples asked Him to explain
the meaning of the Wheat and Tares Bible parable and others. Jesus said, that the one who plants
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 who planted them is the devil. The harvest is
the end of the world, and the reapers are the Angels.
Jesus continues ... Just as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, it will be the same in the
end of this world. The Son of man will send His Angels and they'll
gather out of His Kingdom all things ungodly and those who do wrong
and will throw them into a furnace of fire. There will be wailing and
gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the
Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear.
Now, just in case this is confusing, Jesus didn't
mean that you should leave bad seeds in you and then at the end of the
world, gather them all up and burn them. His point was that the weeds
were already so thick that it would hurt the good crop to go trampling
around pulling weeds. They should have pulled the weeds first but alas, they did not so we have the Wheat and Tares Bible Parable danger ahead.
But, it is not too late or YOU. If you don't remove the bad seeds within you and you choose toallow them to grow into a weed and then a tree ... Your tree of bad will soon bear bad fruit and drop seeds which may affect others. In other words
... YOU WILL BECOME ONE OF THE TARES that Jesus spoke of. Jesus says that these tares will be gathered with
the rest of the weeds and ... Well, you know about the tares punishment. Choose to pull those
weeds of the mind early and you need not fear any punishment.
Within the Wheat and Tares Bible Parable, you have seen how weeds can grow from a little seed
planted in a dream or perhaps a random thought entering your mind on any given a day. Can you even imagine all of the seeds that are planted within us in a normal day from all of the different places we go, things we do and people we meet? Always pull those weeds as soon as you can as we were taught from the Bible Wheat and Tares Parable.
The absolute best weed killer one can use is TRUTH. Use the same method as you would for a silly dream. It may be a
bit embarrassing at first to say things out loud to yourself (as if we
don't for other things) while you're weeding the unwanted stuff, but
be assured, after you do it a few times, the weed planters aren't as
likely to plant as readily as they would cuz they know it's a waste of
Don't be ashamed to keep your garden free of weeds for your Father. He's proud to hear you proclaim the truth. By the way, when the weeds are gone, watch the good things grow more abundantly! You'll be blooming in no time!
