TWO TYPES OF SEEDS, TWO DIFFERENT SOWERS

TWO TYPES OF SEEDS, TWO DIFFERENT SOWERS

“Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” He answered, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear. —Matthew 13:36-43

            Jesus sows the good seed in the world and that good seed are the sons of the kingdom. This good seed are those who follow Jesus. Then there are the weeds. These weeds are the sons of the evil one sown by our enemy, the devil. Since good seed are the ones who follow Jesus then only good seed can be sown by them in return. The same is true of the weeds. Since the sons of the evil one are sown by the devil only weeds can be sown by sons of the devil in return.

            This will be all sorted out at the end of the age. We are told that our Lord will send angels to harvest at the end of the age. The weeds will be thrown into the lake of fire “where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.” Yes, the day is coming when all this will come to pass.

            Let us who are the “good seed” be sowing the good seed of His Word to produce fruit that will bring honor and glory to His Name. Dear Father may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yBzIt_z8oY
