The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares – The Separation Judgment

Learning God’s Holy Word is fun and can give you a sense of happiness, joy and peace. Plus, we are in the Time of the “Separation Judgment” where the “Wheat” will be separated from the “Tares” – based on whether or not we hear His Words (See John 12:48). So, it is important that we all start learning His Words and start spreading the “Good News”. 🙂

Matthew 13 contains the “Parable of the Wheat and the Tares” where Jesus tells us the “Wheat” will be separated from the “Tares” and that the angels come and separate the “Wicked”  from the “Just“. We are judged by His Holy Words (See John 12:48) and the Lord’s angels will remove the WICKED and COMPLACENT who do not have His Holy Words, from the just who hear His Voice – His Holy Words. (SCROLL DOWN to discover how to be sure you are NOT considered a “Tare”.) Read the parable here >>>

Matthew 13:24-30 – The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares
24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 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.”’”

Matthew 13:36-43 – 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. 41 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, 42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

“Tares” are like weeds and many people who love the Lord and did NOT think they would EVER be considered to be a “Tare” may actually be Tares. The answer to this “Separation Judgment” (The separation of  the “Wheat” from the “Tares”) and being SURE you are classified as the Lord’s “Wheat” is John 17:17 (Getting Sanctified by Truth).

What is Truth?
His Word is “Truth”. (See John 17:17 and Psalm 119:160)

John 17:17
17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

Psalm 119:160
160 The entirety of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.

Get Sanctified by Truth

The “Word” that the Lord speaks of is not only about reading (and teaching) the whole Bible. Surely we are to do that. But, He is speaking of the knowing the meanings of His messages in His Parables, Sayings and Words so we hear, understand and follow His “Voice” and His “Way”. Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice.” (John 10:27) and He was speaking of understanding the “symbolism” in His speech. He wants us to know what He means when He speaks His Holy Words like:

Blood, Bread, Flesh, Food, Fruit, Gather, Milk, Mountain, Oil, Seed, Stand, Table, Truth, Vine, Voice, Walk, Wash, Way, Wine, etc.

Here is an example of 1 of His Holy Words:

“Bread”
Bread from Heaven – Instruction from God in Heaven. See John 6:22-44 Etc. When you “break bread” and eat it you are communicating to God in Heaven that you want the Holy Spirit to give you instruction. Jesus broke bread with people for this reason. The “Greater Promise” in the Word “Bread” is the Holy Spirit giving us instruction. God sees ALL and breaking bread is a way we can show Him we want instruction from Him. How else are we to bring His Kingdom on Earth if we do not get His instruction?

His Holy Words are Greater than other common words of the world. They are “Supernatural”.

The Separation Judgment may be happening now or very soon. In this recent March 24, 2017 GodsHealer7 prophecy video, if you listen from minute 2:35 and on it says “I will wipe clean the threshing floor, you will see signs in the heavens, the sun, the moon and the stars, etc.” Notice that the “Threshing Floor” has to do with the Separation of the Wheat from the Chaf/Tares.

End Times Signs and Prophecy (What we are to do)

What does the Bible and Bible prophecy say
are the signs
that we are in the “End Times”?

And, what does the Lord want us to do?

prophecy-bible-end-times

QUESTION:

If Adam and Eve (and therefore all mankind) were removed from the Garden of Eden because they were tricked into following satan’s EVIL WORDS (lies), what do you think God wants us all to do in these “End Times”?

ANSWER:

You’re right!

He wants us to know and follow God’s Holy Words, His Holy Spirit and His Ways.

153 Holy Words
See John 21 – the catch of 153 Great Fish which is symbolic of 153 Holy Words.
Jesus has the Words of Eternal Life (John 6:68)
Who wouldn’t want to know them? 🙂

Examples of His Holy Words:

Field = World
In Matthew 13:38 Jesus tells us that the “field” is the world.
See what’s available to us in Matthew 13:44! (The Treasure of His Holy Words.)

Bread = Instruction
Bread in John 6:22-40 is not just bread for your stomach.
It’s “Manna from Heaven” and is symbolic of instruction from God in Heaven.
Breaking bread enables the Holy Spirit to give us instruction.
It’s a way of communicating to the Lord that you want instruction from Him.
notice-sm
This is what makes these Holy Words so powerful.
They are a Way of Communicating with the Lord.

Fish = His Holy Words
Fish are symbolic of His Holy Words.
He wants us to take a few fish (Holy Words) and feed (teach) His people.

Oil = Knowledge
“Oil” is symbolic of Knowledge. Knowledge of God, His Holy Words, Spirits, etc.
Fill your lamp with oil (knowledge).

The 7 Spirits of the Holy Spirit
See Isaiah 11:2 for the list of His 7 Spirits.

The “End Times” (Day of the Lord) is Now!

The Day of the Lord (“End Times”) is Here!

QUESTION: What does the Bible and Bible prophecy say are the signs we are in the “End Times”? What does the Lord want us to do?

ANSWER: In the “End Time” (Day of the Lord) we are to be Sanctified by “Truth”.
What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17). This article explains how we are to be set apart by Truth so we can get through the Judgment as the Lord wishes us to do.

day-of-the-lord

Mankind was removed from in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve followed satan’s words (lies). Now the Lord is calling us to come back to Following His Holy Words and Ways of Righteousness, Wisdom and Peace. Jesus has the Words of Eternal Life (John 6:68). He wants us to hear His voice.

The Day of the Lord has ALREADY Began:

It was foretold in Zechariah 14:7 that the Day of the Lord would begin with the entrance of Light – and His Words give Light – See Psalm 119:130.  The Day of the Lord began with the opening of His Holy Words that give Light and Understanding so we can increase in Wisdom. We are to bring forth His Kingdom on Earth. See the following verses which explain:

Judgments of the Day of the Lord are rendered
by our hearing, or our rejecting, of God’s Words:

In John 12:48, the Lord testified that all the Judgments of the Day of the Lord are according to the Words of God that He was sent into the world to bear witness of.  It is a requirement of God that we are to choose to be set apart from the world by “Truth” which is His set apart Holy Words. See the following verses which explain:

  • Deuteronomy  18:18-19 (God sent Jesus to earth to bear witness to God’s Words and we are REQUIRED to hear His Words. God made all His Creation with His spoken Word. See Genesis 1);
  • John 18:37; (Jesus testifies to Roman Pontius Pilate that He came to bear witness to Truth. “What is Truth?” His Word is Truth – Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17);
  • John 12:48 (We are Judged by whether or not we hear His Words);
  • John 17:17 (His Word is Truth);
  • John 5:24-25 (He who hears Jesus’ Words and believes in God has everlasting life);
  • Psalm 119:130 (His Words give light) & Hosea 6:5 (Your judgments are like light [His Words give light]);
  • Proverbs 1:20-33 (Don’t miss Proverbs 1:23 which says “Turn at my rebuke; Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.”).

Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice.” (John 10:27) and He was speaking of understanding the “symbolism” in His speech and knowing what Words like these mean: Ask, Arrow, Blood, Bow, Bread, City, Cup, Door, Field, Fish, Flesh, Food, Fruit, Gate, Gather, Light, Milk, Meat, Mountain, Oil, Ox, River, Rock, Sabbath, Seed, Sent, Stand, Sword, Table, Truth, Vine, Voice, Walk, Wash, Way, Wine, Word, etc. (These Words are woven throughout the scriptures of the whole Bible. For example: “Ox treading grain” is symbolic of a teacher of His Words. (See Deuteronomy 25:4, 1st Corinthians 9:9-12, 1 Timothy 5:18) His Words “Seal” us, get us through this Time of Judgment (John 5:24), and keep us safe (Revelation 12:17).

The Father Gave Us Specific Requirements
that His elect must accomplish in His Day:

Pray that your flight may not be in winter…

Are YOU ready? Pastors, is your flock ready?
Winter starts on December 21st – less than 3 months away.

winter

Matthew 24:20-22 – Great Tribulation
20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

Great Tribulation is coming soon. We are in the time of Judgment… judgment on who’s WORDS we follow. The Words of God or the words (lies) of satan.

We have a choice:

  1. Follow God’s Holy Words and come into His Kingdom and be Sanctified by Truth. If we follow the Lord’s Words and Ways we are following His Righteousness, Wisdom and Peace and He will Bless us and Protect us.
  2. But, if we follow the world’s words and ways (satan’s words, which are all lies!) we will continue down the wide path of destruction filled with evil, lies, sickness, war and death.

Which do you choose?

God sent Jesus to Earth to Bear Witness to His Words:

Deuteronomy 18:18-19
18 I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. 19 And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.

(NOTE: God is speaking to Moses here about the Prophet who is to come speaking God’s Words. This is Jesus. Jesus IS the “Word of God”! Revelation 19:13)

Jesus Testified of the Words to Pontius Pilate:

John 18:37
37 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

(NOTE: What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth. (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17)

We are all judged by His Holy Words:

John 12:48
48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him –the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.

notice
Notice in John 12:44-50 below how the Pharisees did not confess Him as being the Son of God who came with God’s Words like was told to Moses in Deuteronomy 18:18-19. This is the SAME THING that the Shepherds (Pastors) of today are doing!

They do not recognize that in the “Day of the Lord” (also known as the “End Times”) the Lord would open up His Holy Words to us (allow us to know them) and we are REQUIRED to be Sanctified by Truth. What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth. (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17)

John 12:44-50
42 Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

44 Then Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me. 45 And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. 46 I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. 47 And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. 49 For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50 And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.”

Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice.” (John 10:27) and He was speaking of knowing the meanings of His messages in His Parables, Sayings and Words so we hear, understand and follow His “Voice” and His “Way”. He wants us to know what He means when He speaks His Words like:

  • Blood,
  • Bread,
  • Flesh,
  • Food,
  • Fruit,
  • Gather,
  • Milk,
  • Mountain,
  • Oil,
  • Seed,
  • Stand,
  • Table,
  • Truth,
  • Vine,
  • Voice,
  • Walk,
  • Wash,
  • Way,
  • Wine,
  • etc.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand!

Do you remember WHY Adam and Eve got removed of the Garden of Eden? Because they followed satan’s words (lies). Now the Lord wants you to Come BACK to His Kingdom. His Kingdom is His Words in you. In His Kingdom, He will take all the darkness out of your heart and soul and you will be filled with happiness, love that you have never known and joy that you never even considered you could have! Plus, the Blessing of understanding how to enable all the Good to come forth from calling upon His Words and knowing it will be done (John 15:7).

John 15:7
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

Revelation 18 – Come Out of Her My People!

Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues! We are to anoint Jesus as our King (Daniel 9:24) and get Sanctified by Truth! Read Revelation 18 below and notice the bold text. Then listen to this MP3 audio by Floyd Taylor.

revelation-18-babylon-fallen

Revelation 18 (NKJV) – The Fall of Babylon the Great
18 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.

The World Mourns Babylon’s Fall

9 “The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, 10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’

11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. 14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’

19 “They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’

20 “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”

Finality of Babylon’s Fall

21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. 22 The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. 23 The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”

How to Read Prophecy

prophecy-revelation

The Lord tells us in Amos 3:7 that before He does anything here on Earth, He first reveals it to His prophets. The Bible is loaded with prophecy that has come true and even prophetic word that tells us what will happen in the future.

Amos 3:7
7 Surely the Lord God does nothing,
Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.

Below is an excerpt from a prophetic word on Z3News.com >>>

Destruction Coming to New York City in Two Phases
https://z3news.com/w/destruction-coming-york-city-phases/

new-york-city

“The gates to the city will be burned to the ground. What are the gates to New York City? She has a gateway by sea, her name is Babylon.

And what is the shining crown of the nation of Babylon? It is New York City. So first you will witness the gate to New York City, and then you will witness the entire city being destroyed. These are two separate events.

I am telling you this now, so you will be able to tell those who remain to leave. Once they see the gateway burned, they must leave.”

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Notice the 4 words in bold font: Gates, City, Sea, Babylon

In the Bible, these 4 words have both literal and spiritual (symbolic) meanings. You already know the literal meanings, and here are the symbolic meanings:

  • “Gates” are symbolic of places of government, of teaching (schools) and of business. Also remember that in the Bible there are many references to the “Gates” of the City.
  • “City” is symbolic of the “Way of the People”. Their Way of Life. A group of people living in like manner.
  • “Sea” is symbolic of the people following the way of the world which follows their own way and NOT God’s way of Righteousness, Wisdom and Peace. They do whatever they want. Their way is the wide-path of destruction because they do not follow God.
  • “Babylon” in this case is symbolic of the modern-day Babylon described in Revelation 18 which is the “NWO” which rules the world  (British Crown, USA, Inc., Vatican, FIAT money [FAKE – no gold or silver], Financial Systems based on FIAT money, almost all Newspapers, Media and News channels across the whole nation owned by just 6 Corporations, etc, etc, etc.).

In this prophetic word from God He says destruction is coming to the “Gates” of New York City because she is a “shining crown of the nation of Babylon”. Then He tells them to leave!

When I think of the way of New York City, I think of greed, love of money and wealth, materialism, corruption, pride, sin, etc. I think of the movie “Wall Street” with Michael Douglas playing the role of “Gordon Gekko” and Charlie Sheen as “Bud Fox“.

wall-street-movie

wall-street-movie-gordon-bud

The Lord speaks in His Pure Language (which to us is parables and symbolism), so what He is probably saying to the people of New York City is that they need to leave their lifestyle of:

  • Greed
  • Materialism
  • Corruption
  • Pride
  • Sin
  • Etc.

Am I 100% positive that this prophetic word really came from God?

No

Am I 100% positive that destruction will come to the “Gates” and “City” of New York City which is the shining crown of the modern-day “Babylon”?

No, but I think that God does NOT approve of their way and I would not be surprised if it did happen because of what we are told in Revelation 18!

For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”

John 17:17-19 – Get Sanctified by Truth for these End Times

john-17-17-sanctify-by-truth

In these “End Times” we are to be sanctified by Truth.

What is “Truth”? His Truth is His Word.
(See Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17)

It is a requirement of God that we are to choose to be set apart from the world by His Truth which is His set apart Holy Words (See Deuteronomy 18:18-19, John 12:48, John 17:17-19; John 21, Joel 2:12-20; John 5:24; Proverbs 1:20-33, etc.).

notice
NOTICE:
The “Word”
that the Lord speaks of is not only about reading (and teaching) the whole Bible. Surely we are to do that.  But, He is speaking of the knowing the meanings of His messages in His Parables, Sayings and Words so we hear, understand and follow His “Voice” and His “Way”. Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice.” (John 10:27) and He was speaking of understanding the “symbolism” in His speech in the “Red Letter Text” in the 4 Books of the Gospel (Good News).

He wants us to know what He means when He speaks His Words like: Blood, Bread, Flesh, Food, Fruit, Gather, Milk, Mountain, Oil, Seed, Stand, Table, Truth, Vine, Voice, Walk, Wash, Way, Wine, etc. (These Words are woven throughout the scriptures of the whole Bible. In John 21 the 153 great fish are symbolic of His 153 Holy Words.)

Here’s an example:

His Word: “Oil”

“Oil” is one of His Holy Words. Oil is symbolic of Knowledge of Truth. (Knowledge of His Words)

10-virgins

Read the Parable of the 10 Virgins
“Fill your lamp with Oil” – This is symbolic of filling up with Knowledge from God. This is symbolic of gaining the Knowledge of Truth. His “Truth” is His Word. See Psalm 119:160, John 17:17.

mount-of-olives

Jesus went to the Mount of Olives (The Mountain of Olives.)
What is in olives? Olive oil is in olives and the oil is symbolic of Knowledge of Truth. Going to the Mount of Olives is symbolic of going to God’s Firmament/Mountain to get knowledge from Him. All this “symbolism” is the Way the Lord speaks! Jesus’ speech in the red text in the Gospel books is loaded with this. The whole Bible is full of this if you have eyes to see and ears to hear. His sheep “Hear His Voice” (John 10:27).

garden-of-gethsemane

Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane
Gethsemane means “olive press” or “oil press”. This is a garden of ancient olive trees which still stands there to this day. What do you get when you press an olive? Oil. (Oil is symbolic of Knowledge from God and the Knowledge of Truth) Oil = Knowledge and Jesus went there to pray and get Knowledge from God.

There are 153 of these special Holy Words in the Bible. Others are:

“Fish”
Symbolic of Jesus and His Holy Words. Jesus is the “Word of God” [Revelation 19:13]. Jesus shows us His “Way” in John 21. The miraculous catch of 153 Great Fish which is symbolic of His 153 Holy Words. We are to be “Fishers of Men” and tell the people the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ AND His Holy Words which we are to use to bring forth His Kingdom on Earth.

“Field”
In Matthew 13:38 Jesus tells us the “Field” is the World. His Holy Words are the Hidden Treasure in the Field (World). See Matthew 13:38-44

“Bread”
Bread from Heaven – Instruction of His Words from God. See John 6

Etc.

When you learn these 153 Holy Words you will receive much richer oil (Knowledge) out of the scriptures. It’s quite amazing actually.

The Lord wants us to “Hear His Voice” (His Holy Words) and get the flock sanctified by Truth. (See John 17:17-19, Deuteronomy 18:18-19 & John 12:48).
