The Weat & Tares

Wheat farmers know that their is a plant that grows up with wheat and it looks like wheat, but it bears no wheat grains. Until the wheat begins to fill out with seed, it is hard to tell that it’s not really wheat. But come harvest time there is no doubt, for there is no fruit, no heads of grain. Just an empty stalk.

Life is hard, but when you’re done with the struggle, Jesus is there to save and restore you in ways you never knew possible. But growing right along with you are tares. They are human like you. They talk about life, like you. They occasionally mention God, like you. But they don’t have a relationship with Jesus.

Our churches are full of wheat and tares. And Jesus said not to pluck the tares up, because some wheat next to them will be plucked up also. Pray for the tares. God can supernaturally turn them into wheat. Love them, show them kindness, show them the goodness of God and pray that one day they will see the Truth and the Truth is that Jesus saves and changes lives. He can even change a worthless, good for nothing tare into productive, costly, beautiful wheat!

Are you a wheat or are you a tare? It’s never too late, until the reaper comes for the Harvest and He’s coming very, very soon as Bible prophecy once again is being lived out before our very eyes. Won’t you join us at Freedoms Light Church Sunday morning at 10 AM for Discipleship Training and at 11:15 AM, where we are fed the Word and preparing ourselves for the great Harvest? You can watch on line if you’re not in our area or on You Tube, Facebook or by down loading our Freedoms Light Church of God app in the App Store. It has a picture of a light house in blue, and be sure to turn on “notifications”, so you will be notified of services, when they start, as well as the daily devotion.

Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who 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 grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.  Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matt 13:24-30
