Summary: Jesus

Matt 13 v 26 - 30 & 36 - 43

1. THE SOWING 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: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

The SOWER is The LORD v. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

The SEED are God's CHILDREN v. 38 the good seed are the children of the kingdom;

The ENEMY is The DEVIL v. 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil;

The TARES are Unbelievers v. 38 the tares are the children of the wicked one; The HARVESTERS are The ANGELS v. 39 and the reapers are the angels.

The HARVEST is the end of the world; v. 39

The Barn is Heaven v. 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. The Furnace is Hell v. 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

THE SOWER

His Diligence v. 24 The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

His Discovery v. 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?

His Dilemma v. 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?

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

His Decision 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.

THE SEED

A. OF THE WHEAT 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom;

Those Who Have : -

(a) Turned From Something ie. Sin

(b) Trusted In Something ie. Christ

(c) Triumphed Over Something ie. The Devil

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Mt 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

B. OF THE TARES A TARE IS THE GREATEST WORK OF THE DEVIL. (a) The DISTRIBUTION Of THE TARES When did the tares get sown in the fields? verse 25, "While men slept". (b) The DESCRIPTION OF THE TARES V. 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

IT SPEAKS OF A WEED CALLED THE DARNEL. IT IS A WEED THAT LOOKS LIKE THE REAL THING, IT HAS SOME OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE REAL THING, BUT IT IS NOT THE REAL THING. Common Problem, & Practice

(c) The DECEPTION OF THE TARES V. 25 "AMONG THE WHEAT"

THE TARE IS AMONG THE WHEAT, BUT NOT OF THE WHEAT.

JUDAS WAS AMONG THEM BUT NOT OF THEM.......

(d) The DELUSION OF THE TARES 2 COR.4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

THE MAN WHO IS TOO RELIGOUS, TOO RIGHTEOUS, OR TOO RESPECTABLE TO GET SAVED (e)The DESTRUCTION OF THE TARES 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. 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; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

2. THE GROWING 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. I. BOTH WERE PLANTED TOGETHER V. 24-25 II. BOTH PROGRESSED TOGETHER v. 26-30a A. There Was The Similar Appearance With The Wheat - 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also B. There Was The Similar Activity With The Wheat - both grew C. There Was The Similar Abundance With The Wheat - both produced III. BOTH WERE PROCESSED TOGETHER V. 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.

And he was speechless. The Condemnation Of Things v. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. The Confirmation Of Things v. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. ie. God's Word, God's Will, & God's Work. The Consolation Of Things Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 4. THE GOING Mt 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
