“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.  (Matt 13:24-30) 

“The Believer and the Counterfeit”, the wheat and the tare, this is a parable from our Lord of such.  Just as it is difficult to discern the wheat from the tare, so it is the same with the believer and the counterfeit, UNTIL the day of the harvest when ALL is revealed. 

While the wheat and tares are in the field together, it is difficult to distinguish one from the other as based upon outward appearance, they both look very much alike.  Only when the fruit appears we are able to differentiate between the two as one is edible being the wheat, and the other is poisonous being the tare as the tares cannot bring forth edible fruit.    

The parable of the wheat and tares as explained here by our Lord in the book of Matthew is clearly in operation in the church today.  Nestled in the midst of the wheat (believers) are the tares (counterfeits) and one can hardly tell the two apart.  For outwardly they look like believers, speak like believers, some even preach like a believer, and appear to worship like a believer and yet they are actual enemies of our Lord strategically placed in the church by satan himself.  As the Apostle Paul declared: “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.” They are placed there to cause division; stir up strife; teach false doctrines that keep many bound by sin rather than the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ that sets them all free; sow discord among the brethren and lead as many away from the truth that would listen and follow.  So, how were these counterfeit believers able to slip in and dwell amongst believers unnoticed?  Why is the church unaware of their presence?  How is the church (body of Christ) incapable of discerning and thus separating the two apart and how is it that a “professing believer” can look into the eyes of a counterfeit and proclaim to see “light” when in truth, there’s only darkness abiding there?   Well, the scriptures tell us that WHILE MEN SLEPT the enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat then he went about his way with hopes the tares would poison the wheat and stifle the growth.  He was capable of doing this damage while men SLEPT.  Had they’d been AWAKE, he would have not gotten past them so easily unnoticed.   

The church is SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP!  So many have turned off the light and thus are fumbling around in the darkness.  With spiritual guards let down, the enemy IS capable of entering in and causing destruction.  While the church SLEPT, the enemy of our Lord crept in and placed his tares amongst the wheat and many are unable to discern who they are because they themselves are still sleeping!  Outwardly awake, yet SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP, thus the counterfeits appear to them as genuine.  They look like the real thing, speak like the real thing however, had you’d been awake, you would be able to clearly see the deception of the tares that they are NOT the real thing.   But, while you slept, they entered in and now they have become as you are.  They shall sit with you, eat and drink with you, worship with you, and because you allowed them in, shall indeed grow with you.  But beware, lest their poison hinders YOUR growth and cause your seed to die at its root, whereby no fruit shall come forth from it.  If you will awaken spiritually, the tares would not be easily able to deceive you, for you shall grow apart from them and your spiritual eyes will be enlightened to the truth.  Else, you can wait until the day of harvest when the Angels of The Lord will then remove the tares from the midst of the wheat, and thus cast the tares into the furnace of fire.  However, if you are still sleeping, you may be in danger of being cast along with them.  Wake up brethren of our Lord!  “The Believer and The Counterfeit” are growing in the same place as is the Wheat and the Tares.  One shall bear FRUIT, and the other shall spew POISON.  Beware, lest you become so deceived you swallow the poison and both end in ruins.   STAY AWAKE, do not slumber for long. 

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils?  And in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”  (Matt 7:21-23)

I love you all so very much. Have a blessed week in the Lord and remember: Whatever we do, do ALL for the GLORY of GOD, who ALONE is worthy of the GLORY and the PRAISE!

The Lord be with you this day and always!  Shalom Uvracha (Peace and Blessings)……..
