Parable of the Wheat & the Tares (The Evil Are Removed - NOT Us)


Parable of the Wheat & the Tares/Weeds
(The Evil Are Removed - NOT Us)

Last year I did a series on the Book of Jude - a seven part series (remember, Jude was one of Jesus' half brothers).  In that small but power packed book of the Bible, Jude quotes directly from the Book of Enoch (click HERE to view Part#4 which quotes from the Book of Enoch:  "Apostates Depraved & Doomed").
After reading Jude in detail, it was the Holy Spirit who directed me to read the Book of Enoch and in the first chapter I read this (and it just filled me with awe and clarification): 


 Did you read the yellow portion??? - "When all the wicked and godless are to be removed."  I truly believe that we have been mislead about the "Rapture."  We are NOT going anywhere - it is the vile evil who are being removed from God's glorious creation.
Then, just recently I reread the Parable of the Wheat & the Weeds and I was thrilled to realize that that same Enoch message was in the New Testament!

Let's study this parable today.


Good seed has been planted but before it germinated, the servants were sleeping ("while men slept") and the enemy was able to creep in and scatter weed seeds.  This is exactly what has happened to all of our societies - we're all sleeping!!  Evil has crept into all aspects of our lives:  blasphemous, debaucherous and atrocious behavior is everywhere!  Human trafficking and the raping of precious children (even babies) and we've been sleeping through all of it!!!!
This evil is the weed seed that has been planted (infiltrated) into our good crop - satan has quietly spread his diabolical seeds throughout all of our goodness (see Scripture above).  (And in the picture below you can see these weeds that are growing throughout the wheat field).


What did the owner of the field do (in the Parable)?  He's calm - He knows exactly what to do.  The servants ask if they should pull out all of the weeds (remember - they are still young plants).  Not right now!!!  Only when the time is right can the weeds be pulled, otherwise the good wheat plants would be uprooted when the weed is pulled.  


Verse 30 is the best!  Our Heavenly Father is the owner of the field and only He knows the exact time of the harvest - not even Jesus Christ knows the harvest date (read Matthew 24:36).
Now here comes the best part:  "FIRST gather together the weeds" (see Scripture above) - in other words pull them;  remove the tares.  And then, bundle them together so that way none of the evil will get away.  Finally, the most important part is to burn the weeds (the evil) - totally DESTROY them.  When weeds are burned there can never be anymore evil seeds to spread anywhere - they are annihilated.
And, all of God's goodness is gathered into His barn.

All throughout both the Old and New Testaments we read how our Heavenly Father intended for us to live in abundance.  He made everything for us!!  (below are just a couple of those "abundance" verses):       

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

And also in the Bible verse below:

"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
John 10:10

I know that this way of thinking may be shocking to some, but please pray for discernment.  It took me a while but the Holy Spirit guided me to clarity about this subject and Matthew 13 just confirms that revelation even more.
