Here’s more evidence from the parables of Jesus Christ in Matthew chapter 13, specifically The Wheat and the Tares.
With a great multitude of people gathered, along with His Disciples nearby, Christ sat on a ship by the seashore to teach. He began with what is commonly called The Parable of the Sower.
Then we find:
And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. Matthew 13:10-11
God has chosen to whom He will reveal these mysteries.
For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. Matthew 13:12-13
We must do something with what God gives us or else we will lose it.
And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. Matthew 13:14-15
The purpose of these parables isn’t just head knowledge but, but conversion in your heart.
Maybe you wonder why this truth isn’t more known or received. Here we see it was prophesied by Isaiah that the majority of God’s people would be in a state of slumber when it came to being converted.
But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Matthew 13:16-17
Do you desire to understand things hidden from the foundation of the world?
According to Christ, we are blessed when we know the truth. So many of our ancestors longed to understand what God Incarnate, Jesus Christ was about to express and interpret through this parable. He then expresses how blessed they are to be given their understanding. Yet He’s not only going to express and give them the interpretation of The Parable of the Sower, but also He will express and give the interpretation of The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares. As you will see, His interpretation of this parable is in complete agreement with what we saw in The Garden Part 1.
That in John 8:44- “ye are of your father the devil,” and in I John 3:12, which clearly states that Cain is from “of that Wicked one,” both speaking of what is “that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which DECEIVES THE WHOLE WORLD” as Revelation 12:9 puts it.
The world exists under near total deception. This then is a third witness that there is another seedline besides that of the man God created, Adam. Here’s the interpretation of The Parable of the Sower.
Notice here what Christ specifically calls Satan, the devil:
Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Matthew 13:18-23
The English word “seed” was used 4 times in Christ’s interpretation of The Parable of the Sower. The English translation “seed” is for the Greek word spi-ro #4687 in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance. This word spi-ro speaks of the kind of seed you literally scatter. Please keep this in mind later on, as we look at the next parable of the wheat and the tares.
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which 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 blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 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? 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. 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 13:24-30
He gives The Parable of the Mustard Seed and The Parable of the Leaven, then:
All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. Matthew 13:34-36
Of all these parables, they wanted to understand “the parable of the tares of the field” the most. Christ then proceeds to give them the interpretation of this parable.
This is major because it leaves no room for any private interpretation:
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; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 13:37-43
It should be clear from Christ’s words alone yet let’s look closer at the language. First we must look for what Greek word is translated by the English word “seed” in these verses. We would assume it would be the same Greek word as was just used 3 times in Christ’s interpretation of The Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:18-23) spi-ro, Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance # 4687 as mentioned before, but such is not the case.
The Greek word translated “seed” every time the English word is used in both The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares itself and Christ’s interpretation of it, is sperma, Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance #4690, an entirely different Greek word. This is where we get our English word ‘sperm.’ This is a deliberate usage to ignite the mind to understanding that this is describing two sources actual, genetic offspring.
The wheat and the tares represent that there will be this volatile co-existence between two races, which began in the Garden from the seed of the Woman and the seed of the Serpent, extending all the way up until Christ returns at the end of the age.
This is the paradigm of Scripture – Not Jews and Gentiles – but wheat and tares. This is the simplicity found in the racial aspect of the Gospel. We find the same thing from the beginning:
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Genesis 3:15
This is the result of what took place in the Garden of Eden directly from the voice of God Himself.
That “enmity” continues on between the White race and all non-Whites even today. In our final lesson in this series, we’ll see how this all occurred and began in the Garden of Eden.
