WHEAT OR TARES?

There are two types of people

And can ever really be,

We’re either wheat or we are tares

As we enter eternity.

We all start off as tares

Since our fallen nature will dictate,

But when the Heavenly Father calls our name

Into ‘wheat’ we will be made.

Our fallen nature is rebellious

And for God we do not seek,

We stand tall and stand in arrogance

Instead of being humble, true and meek.

Tares are useless and are rebellious

But they appear genuine,

They look authentic and appear kind

But there’s discrepancies within.

Tares do look like wheat indeed

And it’s only at the harvest time,

Where the reaper will distinguish

As the wheat comes forth to shine.

It’s a petrifying thought

If we’re tares but do believe,

That we’ve been actual wheat all along

But thoroughly deceived.

Tares will appear to be

The real and genuine thing,

But God knows the depths of all our hearts

And the fruit that our soul brings.

The tares are thrown into the fire

Because there’s no use for them at all,

Since their sower was not the authentic master

And they rejected the Father’s call.

Tares are the most deceptive

Because they really profess to be,

The genuine thing, but surely are not

And clearly the very wrong type of seed.

And they cannot be uprooted

Since the wheat may follow suit,

But they grow together until harvest time

When the wheat reveals its fruit.

The angels are the reapers

And will deliver our precious soul,

To the seat of the Heavenly Father

Where we will give an account behold!

God have mercy on us all

As we sincerely do repent,

And thank God for Jesus’ sacrifice

When the Father’s love on earth was sent.

(C) P.B. 2022

“The kingdom of heaven is a like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but whilst men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.  But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.  So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field?  How then does it have tares?’  He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’  The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.  Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, ‘First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.’”  Matthew 13:24-30

“The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is at the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.”  Matthew 13:39

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it?  I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.”  Jeremiah 17:9-10

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ…”. 2 Corinthians 5:10

“And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.”  2 Corinthians 11:14
