    Yes there are many people who are not true christians in these days who are tares

    PARADOX. Our Heavenly Abba Dad and God Almighty Yahweh in and through His Son our everliving Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua Jesus would never have His people ignorant of what is to come in this end of the age of the gentiles. No man can recieve anything except it be given him from above. THE DREADFUL AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND ! SHALOM ISRAEL ZION ! COME LORD YESHUA AMEN !

    It is impossible to sum it all up in a few words. It is so powerful! It is scary for the ones who don't accept Jesus as Savior. It is so important to talk to others about Him.The really sad part is that there are people who listen in church but don't accept Christ as Savior!

    Randolph this has been going on since Cain and as it says Satan the wicked one sends his tares children to earth and God sends His to the field which is the earth. So we have Gods children and we have Satans children that chose Satan for their father in the first earth age. Genesis 3 vs 15 God put enmity between the woman's seed Eve and Satans seed or Zera descendants not yet born tares.

    Jesus is the Son of GOD! Satan has Angels! Son of man shall send forth his angels,
  • Randolph Blankenship
    I love this chapter but the part that speaks loudest to me is the wheat and the tares, I believe this scripture speaks loud and clear to the church today. I believe that there are so many people in the church today that fit this scripture, and it is almost scary to think how many people in church today believe that they are a christian when in all actuality they are headed wide open to an eternity
