February 12, 2018 – Matthew 13:30

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather you together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

– Matthew 13:30

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

This parable speaks of that God will separate all according to their own kind during the last days: pick out the tares and “gather the wheat into my barn.” When I read this verse, I think of the parable of the net that the Lord Jesus said, “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like to a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” (Mat 13:47-50). It is said that when the net was full, they cast the bad away and “gathered the good into vessels”; From these verses we can see that God is righteous, and when His work is done, He will bring people to an appropriate destination according to what each person does. As God’s words say, “Those who truly follow God are able to withstand the test of their work, whereas those who do not truly follow God are incapable of withstanding any of God’s trials. Sooner or later they will be expelled, while the overcomers will remain in the kingdom. Whether or not man truly seeks God is determined by the test of his work, that is, by God’s trials, and has nothing to do with the decision by man himself. God does not reject any person at whim; all that He does is so that man may be utterly convinced. He does not do anything that is invisible to man, or any work that cannot convince man. Whether man’s belief is true or not is proved by the facts, and cannot be decided by man. That “wheat cannot be made into tares, and tares cannot be made into wheat” is without doubt. All those who truly love God will ultimately remain in the kingdom, and God will not mistreat anyone who truly loves Him.” From this we can see that God chooses or eliminates a person according to one’s substance. If we are true believers in God, we will surely stay in the kingdom of God!
