The Serpentís Seed Taught by Christ In A Parable
This study written by Maurice Wright

The Strongís Exhaustive Concordance defines the word Ďparableí as, "a fictitious narrative of common life conveying a moral comparison." (Strongís #3850)

The word Ďparableí defined by Nelson Illustrated Bible Dictionary means, "A short, simple story designed to communicate a spiritual truth, religious principle, or moral lesson; a figure of speech in which truth is illustrated by a comparison or example drawn from everyday experiences. A parable is often no more than an extended metaphor or simile using figurative language in the form of a story to illustrate a particular truth. The Greek word for parable literally means "a laying by the side of" or "a casting alongside," thus "a comparison or likeness." In a parable, something is placed alongside something else, in order that one may throw light on the other."

In a parable, the teller of the story literally cast or throws a fictitious comparison alongside of biblical truth so that the imaginary entailed in the story throws light on the spiritual. Jesus, the master of this form of teaching, taught many parables but never one more revealing than the parable of the tares and the wheat. This parable in particular traces the origins of Satanís natural seed on earth. Jesus, the teller of this incredible story, starts by giving us the fictitious analogy of two men who sowed seed in the field. The first man sowed wheat but his enemy came behind him and sowed tares alongside the wheat. As time passed and both seeds began to grow, it became apparent to the servant of the wheat farmer that a false seed had been planted next to the wheat. Concerned that the poisonous weed might infect the wheat crop, the servant asked the farmer if they should go into the field and cut down the tares. But the farmer said, "No, if you cut down the tares you might destroy the wheat also. Let them both grow together until the harvest and the reapers will bind them in bundles to burn." Here, we just read the fictitious narrative of two men who sow seed in the field. Now letís read the spiritual truth of the parable.

The two men who sowed the seeds in the world are God and Satan. God sowed the wheat, which is symbolic for His children; Satan sowed the tares, which is symbolic for his children. As time passed and both children, good and evil, began to grow in the world, it became apparent to Godís Election that false children were sowed in the world among Christians. Concerned that their leaven might pollute the belief of Christians, the Election asked Jesus if they should go into the sanctuary and expose the fakes. But Jesus said, "No, if you go after the evil children you might spiritually damage the good children if they are not privy to this truth. Let the good and bad worship together until the harvest, and then the angels of God will gather together the bad children to be destroyed in the eternal fire." What a great embarrassment it is, because of false teaching, Jesus doesnít even trust the religious leaders to spiritually separate Satanís children out from among their own congregation. So He tells them to let the false children worship among you until the harvest at the end of the world and, "My angels will separate them from among you." Itís really sad when Godís own children cannot identify and separate doctrinally Christians from the children of the devil. So Jesus has to protect the little babies from harm because of their ignorance of His Word.

The fictitious analogy given to shine light on the truth

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. (Matthew 13:37-38)

Jesus, the Son of man, is the one who sowed the good seed, Adam and Eve, in the world. Satan, unable to create life on his own, had sexual intercourse with Eve and sowed Cain, the evil seed. For those doubters that question Godís Word as to whether angelic beings can impregnate human women, then I suggest they read Genesis 6:1-4 & Jude 1:6-7, where it states the fallen angels of Genesis chapter six left their first estate in heaven, came to earth and impregnated the daughters of men. The result of that unlawful union birthed a race of giants which God destroyed in the flood.
