Scripture: Matthew 13:24-30
Matthew 13:24-30 says, “Another parable He put forth to them, saying: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 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?’ 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?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 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.’” What do we know about how God works in the last days? When there is both wheat and tares in a field, what does God do? The Lord identified that an enemy sowed the tares. But when the servant offered to gather the tares Jesus said no, because gathering the tares would mean sacrificing the wheat. He said to let them grow together until the harvest. The harvest is twofold. The first harvest is a judgment harvest. And it takes the anointing of a prophet like Moses to bring it about. All of the tares have to be gathered and burned – by the breath of His lips, He shall slay the wicked. Getting to know this side of Jesus changes how we walk in the earth. It will change our authority and as we get to know Him, we will begin to think like the kings God made us. We will begin to think like the saints we really are in Christ. No weapon formed against us will prosper and every enemy that rises up against us we can condemn because this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord! How do we want to finish our race? Do we want to finish it representing the fullness of Who God is? Prayer will release that heritage God ordained. That choice it ours and praying in tongues will help get us there! The time to do it is now!
