Parable Of The Weeds
by Wayne Blank
"The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?'"
"'An enemy did this,' he replied."
"The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?'"
"'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest [see The Return Of Jesus Christ]. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'"
"Then He left the crowd and went into the house [see Capernaum]. His disciples came to Him and said, 'Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.'"
"He answered, 'The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of The Kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil [see That Old Serpent]. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.'"
"As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His Kingdom [see The Kingdom of God] everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth [see The Last Day]. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father [see Why Were You Born?]. He who has ears, let him hear.'" (Matthew 13:24-30,36-43)
