    MATTHEW 13:24 THE WHEAT AND THE TARES

    Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

    This parable is speaking of the kingdom of heaven; the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ on earth. The promised earthly kingdom, in which, Israel will be a holy nation, over which they will be kings, and priests. Revelation 5:10

    13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

    13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

    13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

    13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

    In this parable, the time of the harvest is the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. At his coming, he will establish his millennial reign in his kingdom on earth. The wheat are the righteous believers, and the tares are the unbelieving wicked. The tares are the apostate, unbelieving Jews. The wheat is the believing Jewish remnant.

    13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

    13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    In the verses below, the Lord is speaking of the end of the world. At his coming, the just, and the wicked will be seperated. The wicked will be cast into hell, and the just will shine.

    13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

    13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    The millennium is the thousand-year reign of Christ with His saints in heaven and is the time frame between the first and second resurrections.

    The living wicked (humans) are destroyed upon His 2nd return.

    2nd Thessalonians 2:8

    And then shall that Wicked (living humans) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

    Revelation 20:1-4

    The earth lies desolate for the 1,000 years.

    Jeremiah 4:23-26

    During this time (1,000 years) the wicked dead will be judged; the earth will be utterly desolate, without living human inhabitants, but occupied by Satan and his angels.

    1 Corinthians 6:2-3

    After the 1,000 millennium reign in heaven. The 2nd resurrection happens and the GWTJ (Great White Throne Judgement) happens.

    Revelation 20:7 (battle of Gog and Magog)

    Revelation 20:4-6

    Revelation 21:1-5

    Malichai 4:1

    Ezekiel 28:18-19

    Sure and I accept this interpretation except why bring in / up the Jews? In Christ there are no Jews or gentiles!

    And how are these seeds, the people of the kingdom, good? Obviously before sanctification none are morally good, so this mention of good, while they are in their sins must NOT refer to a moral quality. What's left? It is probably a status reference of their being elect predestined to be sanctified into goodness.

    AT the very root of all separation, the good seed who are the people of the kingdom, refers to the sinful elect, those sinful believers who have never been condemned, Jn 3:18, and the tares, the people of the evil one, refers to those condemned already for unbelief, Jn 3:18 ie, the non-elect.
    I Champion GODís holiness:
    - GOD did not need evil so did not create evil for any reason.
    - All evil is creature-created.

    I Champion Our Free will:
    - All spirits created in HIS image had an equal ability and opportunity to choose either heaven or hell by their free will.

    Daniel 7:14

    Jeremiah 23:5

    Revelation 20:3

    Revelation 20:4

    Revelation 20:6

    The verses above address your question, as best I can.

    "why bring in / up the Jews? In Christ there are no Jews or gentiles!"

    This parable is for Israel. Jesus is talking of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven Matthew 13:11; this is the kingdom on earth promised Israel.

    There is none good as far as being righteous enough to have eternal life. The Jews had faith that Jesus is the Son of God, and were declared righteous to eternal life . They are righteous only in the sight of God by obeying his law and commandments. They had to be righteous to enter the kingdom.

    This parable is about the people of the kingdom, specifically, Matt 13: 38 The field is the world, and the good seed represents the sons of the kingdom who have been sowed into this world by the Son of man...this includes His sheep by every name they are called, Israel, the eklesia, the elect, the Church etc etc... they are all one and that oneness is HIS people of the kingdom...no Jew, no Gentile, no man, no woman...
