“He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one” (Matt 13:37-38).
… the enemy that sowed them is the devil…. (Matt 13:39).
The tares of the wicked one are unclean spirits/devils (Eph 6:12, Luke 4:33, Matt 8:31). Daily they send evil thoughts into every mortal mind – several times a day - (Luke 23:34, Matt 12:7, Rom 8:7, Gal 5:19-21) more so now than ever before (Rev 12:9).
“… according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” (Eph 2:2).
We are all disobedient! None of us are righteous (Rom 3:10).
Even those who find God’s righteousness are scarcely saved (1 Peter 4:18).
This is why we are all saved by faith.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Eph 2:8).
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, HIS FAITH is counted for righteousness” (Romans 4:5).
“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God” (Eph 3:17-19).
“But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it” (Rom 8:25).
“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).
“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass” (Psalm 37:7).
“For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace” (Psalm 37:9 &11).
“Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it” (Psalm 37:34).
“Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment and wait on thy God continually” (Hos 12:6).
Much is required (Luke 12:48) to walk on streets of gold for eternity (Rev 21:21) those who don’t overcome their spiritual war will be placed outside those pearly gates (Rev 22:15).
So how do you overcome what you can’t see? You can’t!
“For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin” (Rom 7:14).
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it (Rom 8:18-25).
We have no power of ourselves to change our carnal condition.
“O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? (Rom 7:24).
When you, by your own carnal power, strive to change yourself through strict obedience (2 Cor 3:6) then what really happens is you become self-righteous and puffed up with pride. God hates pride. That is why bad things happen to good people – Job had this same problem.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (Jer 17:9).
“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall” (1 Cor 10:12).
Only God our creator can change us and he only will do that through humble love (Job 42:5).
Being carnal (Rom 8:7) we struggle with pride all of our lives – and even when we get control of it through humility – it can easily rear its ugly head again and again.
How do I know?
“Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Cor 1:4).
“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Heb 5:14).
How do we learn our eternal lessons to help others? Through chastening’s from God!
“But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons” (Heb 12:8).
“And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? (Heb 12:5-7).
“Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things” 1 Cor 13:7
“Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory” (2 Tim 2:10).
“But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry” (2 Tim 4:5).
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these”. (Mark 12:30-31).
“By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments” (1 John 5:2).
We prove that we love him when we obey his every word (Matt 4:4, 2 Tim 2:15, 1 John 2:5).
“But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? (James 2:20).
“If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15).
- His Ten commandments (Ex 20:3-17, Matt 5:19, Matt 22:36-40).
- His Eight Holy Days (Lev 23:1-36, Matt 26:17, John 7:2, 1 John 2:2) are the plan of God.
- His Specific Food laws (Lev 11:1-47, Acts 10:14) breaking them is the cause of many of this world’s diseases. Be clean (Acts 11:8).
- His Everlasting love (Rev 14:6, 1 Cor 13:2-3, Gal 5:22, Eph 1:4, Eph 3:17, Eph 4:2, Heb 7:19) is for all (Acts 10:34).
If we break even one of his laws (Gen 26:5, Matt 5:19, Rom 13:10, 1 Cor 13:2-3) we are guilty of them all.
“But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Matt 9:13).
God requires perfection (Matt 5:48, James 1:4, 1 Peter 5:10, 1 John 4:18) seek it.
“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love” (Eph 1:4).
“I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Eph 4:1-3).
Those who worship God on Sunday are breaking HIS commandment (Ex 20:8-11, Rev 12:9).
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him” (1 John 2:15).
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” (James 4:4).
“And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever” (1 John 2:17).
“And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection” (Luke 8:14).
“And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last first” (Mark 10:29-31).
“He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it” (Matt 10:37-39).
“If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? (1 John 4:20).
The devil is being served (John 8:44) in this world (2 Cor 11:13-15).
Mortal minds (Rom 8:7) unable to resist unclean spirits evil thoughts are shortening their lives (1 Tim 5:8, Gen 38:7, 1 John 3:12, Heb 9:27).
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? (Rom 6:16).
“Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” (James 1:15).
“The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened” (Proverbs 10:27).
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Eph 6:12).
The tare’s works are listed...
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Rev 21:8).
“Whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” (Rev 20:15).
The devil and his angels (goats and tares) are the names NOT written in the books of life.
“And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left” (Matt 25:33).
“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6).
“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matt 25:41).
The everlasting fire is only prepared for the devil and his angels.
The devil and his angels were not born mortal to learn the knowledge of good and evil to be reborn a god (Ps 82:6, Gen 3:22, 1 Cor 15:53-54, 2 Tim 1:10) to then be judged and eternally placed (Ezek 37:26, Zech 10:6, Rev 22:14-15) according to their works (Rev 20:12-13, Matt 22:39, Luke 12:47-48) by how they treated their neighbor (1 John 4:20) as if they were them.
In this world God has placed us around enemies (Micah 7:6, Matt 5:44, Luke 6:27, Luke 6:35) to teach us his knowledge (Gen 3:22).
In God’s coming New World (Rev 21) we each will be placed in our forever homes (Ezek 37:26, John 14:2-3, Rom 8:18, Isa 25:8) according to our works of love (Matt 25:34-40) and forgiveness (Luke 6:37) to our own kind (1 Tim 5:8).
The names of every child ever given the breath of life (Gen 2:7) by God our Almighty Father are written in the books of life.
When we die (Heb 9:27) our spirit returns to God who gave it (Eccl 12:7).
We are in a spiritual war against the rulers of darkness in this world (Eph 6:12).
Only one mortal child - the beast (John 17:12) the devil’s son (Gen 6:2) will perish (2 Thes 2:3).
“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” (2 Cor 4:4).
Christ died for ALL of God’s children (1 John 2:2, John 10:11, 1 Peter 2:25 Heb 13:20, John 3:16-17).
The second death goes into the lake of fire with the devil that deceived us all.
“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death” (Rev 20:14).
“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” (Rev 20:10).
“And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it” (Isaiah 28:18).
The works of the Goats and Tares (unclean spirits/devils) are directed by the Scapegoat (Satan).
“And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat…But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness” (Lev 16:8 & 10).
“And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness” (Lev 16:21-22).
During the coming thousand-year reign of Jesus Christ (on this earth) Satan and his angels will be imprisoned (Rev 20:1-2).
At the end of the thousand years they will be loosed for a season – to humble those inflicted with our carnal curse of pride (Rev 20:3 & 7-9, Rom 8:7).
Soon after the thousand years are finished our High Priest with his new name (Heb 7:16-17, 1 Cor 15:13-14, Rev 3:12, Isa 62:2) will justly lay all the sins of all the people onto the head of the devil (scapegoat) who is the instigator of all of our sins (Eph 2:2, Luke 23:34).
To God be the glory!
Every child given the breath of life from God their Father will see Satan and his angel’s (tares and goats) judgment day (2 Pet 2:4, Matt 22:29-30, Rev 20:11-13).
“And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh” (Isa 66:24).
Satan (Isa 14:11-16) looks like a man. All angels look like men (Heb 13:2). The Goats and tares (unclean spirits/devils) eternal punishment shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched because they can’t die. Their eternal placement will be unto a land not inhabited.
Humble yourself (Matt 7:7-8, Matt 6:33, Rom 4:5, 1 Pet 4:8). Without the full and perfect measure of God’s Holy Spirit living through us we are nothing (1 Cor 13:2-3). The oil in the lamps of the ten virgins is the Holy Spirit (Matt 25:1-12).
“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time” (1 Peter 5:6).
“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble” (James 4:6).
“So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? (1 Cor 15:54-55).
“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Cor 15:57).
“But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2 Tim 1:10).
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24).
HIS truth is only on “The Good Tale”.
Only God is good – he doeth the works (John 14:10) this is the reason that every soul, which will not hear all, now delivered (Rev 12:5-6) will not be chosen (Acts 3:22-23).
This is HIS good tale of HIS coming kingdom in everyone’s future New World (Rev 21).
Every child ever given the breath of life will be reborn immortal (Ps 82:6, Matt 22:29-30).
“That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ” (Col 2:2).
This is the mystery of God …
“I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” (Psalm 82:6).
“Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory” (1 Peter 1:8).
Our true Father God is not a murderer (Satan is the murderer and liar John 8:44, Rev 12:9).
God gave us his only begotten son to save us all (John 3:16-17, 1 John 2:2).
God is love (1 John 4:8). Love NEVER fails (1 Cor 13:8).
Our real Father/Creator will not put any child that he breathed the breath of life into in a hell fire as torture (Rom 13:10) or as a second death no matter what their sins, whether they repent or not in this life. That thought has never entered his heart or mind to ever do such a thing (Jeremiah 7:31 & 19:5, Hebrews 13:8). Those stubbornly (1 Sam 15:23) believing that God would do such a thing are blaspheming the Holy Ghost (Mark 3:29) and are in danger of eternal damnation.
“But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless” (Matt 12:7).
“For with God nothing shall be impossible” (Luke 1:37).
“For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, WHO IS THE SAVIOUR OF ALL MEN, specially of those that believe” (1 Tim 4:10).
It is not an easy thing to believe the truth,that is why only few are chosen … ask (Matt 7:7-8).
“So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen” (Matt 20:16).
“For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matt 22:14).
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).
