Tares vs Wheat
Matt 13:25-30 NKJV
25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 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 ?' 28 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?' 29 But he said, 'No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 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 13:36-40 NKJV The Parable of the Tares Explained
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field." 37 He answered and said to them: "He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. 39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. 40 Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age.
When I listened to a radio show on Hagee, it was disturbing enough to hear the information, but then the speaker was acting all prideful in “confronting” Hagee, rebuking him on radio. Well I felt after, Holy Spirit reminding me of the scripture when you confront people you do it in LOVE and HUMILITY, not in an I’m better than you attitude. That is what bothered me. If you confront at all, it is because you have RELATIONSHIP with someone, not an outsider or casual acquaintance. The one who KNOWS that person has more of an impact, than just someone else walking in pomposity.
2 Tim 4:2-4 NIV Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct , rebuke and encourage-with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
James 5:19-20 AMP [My] brethren, if anyone among you strays from the Truth and falls into error and another [person] brings him back [to God],20 Let the [latter] one be sure that whoever turns a sinner from his evil course will save [that one's] soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins [procure the pardon of the many sins committed by the convert].
I was just sort of ruminating on the whole thing, and then listened to what Pat King said about us not being shocked at what may come out, and to be sure of our facts.
Then I sent out the thing on a TV evangelist that Beverly sent, but I honestly didn’t go to any other pages on that site which seems to be an equal opportunity criticizer. Then someone sent me a note saying they were coming against others…
Well, I’m on some of those Baptist sites also being called a “false prophetess” but I don’t’ get offended at that anymore, because you have to consider the source. The most important thing is what God says about you, not man. I know I will be called and have been called a “cult” because of the signs and wonders that accompany any people walking in God's power in this hour.
It’s when what is said is true, that it really bothers. If you told me my true faults, then I have to say, yes, I’m a failure at that. I’ve failed over and over again with many things. But there are those that think we shouldn’t say anything at all, and God did tell me to not get in the muddle, so I have to apologize if it seems I’m taking sides. I am NOT. I’m just relaying news. It’s up to each of us to discern what is real, what is not. You can’t much argue with a person saying Jesus isn’t the Messiah, never said He was, blah, blah. It is obvious APOSTASY. And there are many admonitions by Paul in the New Testament telling about people who were false brethren, and not a help to him when he needed it. So it’s not a sin to uncover darkness. 1 Tim 3 makes it clear we are to disassociate from any false brethren, and we are also admonished to not have anything to do with those who preach “another gospel”! So you can’t say it’s unimportant to disclose the false from the true.
You need to KNOW who is false and who is to not be led into deception ! I was led into a deception this last year and I believe it was in a moment of weakness, and also from associating with those who were false. Often some of what is said is right on with such people. One such example is a website I went to called the Bereans, and the few teachings I looked at seemed right, so I was going to share the site and signed up for newsletter, then a niggle by Holy Spirit led me to look further into who they were and they are NON Trinitarians . So I didn’t send it out, and got off the mailing list. There is so much information disseminated on the internet that is not right, and those who pretend to have Christian backgrounds but are into NEW AGE practices.
You can’t keep your head in the sand, about those in high places of government either, whether it be in the world or the church. But we do have to have the facts straight. You can’t get any straighter with what Hagee said himself exposed on U-tube saying it in his own words. People are yet so in IDOLATRY to pastors and leaders that they will not accept truth even if shouted at them. We can pray that these leaders will repent and turn, but so many have signed on to the one world religion. I found out that the Vineyard was one of those who signed the world council of churches statement this week, and that was disturbing enough, having been part of that movement for years.
WE do not know the direction people are going but God does, and in this hour there will be much separation of wheat from tares. I really recommend seeing Pat King’s video on this. It’s on her site in segments, or you can buy it for $12.00.
James 2:8-13 NKJV
If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you do well; 9 but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. 10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For He who said, "Do not commit adultery," also said, "Do not murder." Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty. 13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
You know there are many who have no trouble correcting another brother and sister, and not always in love, yet a pastor they would not dare to correct. Is that not showing partiality ? Is that not treating them different as if they were above us and not accountable when the bible clearly says that we are submit one to another ?
James 1:19-20 NKJV Qualities Needed in Trials
So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
James 1:26-27 NKJV If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one's religion is useless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
James 3:1-5 NKJV
3:1 The Untamable Tongue - My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. 2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Indeed, we put bits in horses' mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things.
James 4:11-12 NKJV Do Not Judge a Brother
Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 12 There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?
Some people say do not judge at all, and this scripture could be used for that. Judging means sentencing, and acting like you wouldn’t do the same thing, as if looking down on someone else instead of thinking, there but for the grace of God go I. So it is right not to judge, with an air of attitude of superiority. But we are commanded to judge all things also, to discern between what is false and true. THAT we MUST DO. It should break our hearts to hear of these things, and provoke us to PRAY for the soul of that transgressor, that they may be snatched back from the hand of the enemy.
