Matthew 13:25-But while men slept, his enemy came and
sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. (Matthew 13:39)
The word ‘tares’ in Greek means, "a false
grain." (Strong’s #2215)
The word ‘tares’ defined by the Nelson Illustrated
Bible Dictionary means, "A poisonous grass resembling wheat, but with
smaller seeds. The tares were usually left in the fields until harvest time,
then separated from the wheat during winnowing. Jesus used tares growing
with wheat as a parable to illustrate evil in the world."
The word ‘seed’ in Greek is, ‘sperma.’ It
means, "something sown, seed (including the male sperm); by implication
an offspring; specially a remnant." (Strong’s #4690)
By the definition of the word ‘seed,’ we know that
these particular tares are false children that were born into the world
through Satan’s sperm. I know this meat is difficult for some Christians to
digest because of the babies milk that is taught in most churches. Do me a
favor, go to Genesis 3:3 and translate the word ‘touch’ in
your Strong’s Concordance. That ‘word’ expresses an euphemism which
means, "to lay with a woman." It was the fruit of Satan’s seed line
that Eve was not supposed to touch. The fruit of a woman’s womb is a Hebrew
idiom that describe child bearing. For further documentation read my
study, "Satan’s Impregnation Of Eve."
Luke 1:39-43-And Mary arose in those days, and went into
the hill country with haste into a city of Juda; And entered into the house
of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass, that, when
Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and
Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she spake out with a loud
voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should
come to me?
Matthew 13:26-But when the blade sprung up, and brought
forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
The word ‘blade’ in Greek is a prime word that
means, "garden." (Strong’s #5528)
The word ‘sprung’ in Greek means, "to
germinate." (Strong’s #985)
When the garden of Eden began to grow and God brought
forth Adam and Eve, the fruit of His planting, then appeared Cain, the fruit
of Satan’s planting, and thus the germination of the garden of the Eden took
on real growth as both the good seed and the bad seed now dwelled together.
Matthew 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?
The word ‘Sir’ in Greek means, "a respectful
title: God." (Strong’s #2962)
Here, the Election of God was mystified when the tares
appeared on earth because they knew that God did not sow these evil children
into the world, therefore the enemy of God must have.
Matthew 13:28-29-He said unto them, An enemy hath done
this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather
them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up
also the wheat with them. (Matthew 13:39)
The word ‘enemy’ in Greek means, "an adversary,
especially Satan." (Strong’s #2190)
The word ‘wheat’ in Greek means, "grain,
especially. wheat: corn." (Strong’s #4621).
According to this parable wheat symbolically represents
the children of God, and tares symbolically represent the children of Satan.
The analogy is, when wheat is sown the seed of corn must literally die in
the ground before it spring forth and produce fruit. When we look at this
analogy from the Christian perspective, the lust of the flesh must first die
to habitual sin before we, as Christians, can truly live and produce
spiritual fruit unto God. Tares by comparison are poisonous by nature and
when that poisonous seed is sowed in the ground the appearance of the tares
resemble wheat to such a great degree. Jesus said, "Let both grow together
until the harvest: because if you gather up Satan’s children you may hurt
God’s children also if you can’t tell them apart doctrinally.
Matthew 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. (Matthew 13:39-42 & Haggai 2:19)
The wheat or seed that is gathered in the barn is symbol
for God’s children.
