Discussion for Matthew 13

  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    Say not of the holy Angels, Were wanting to do, for the Angels now await commandment to execute final judgment on ye wicked. For it is written, The enemy that sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the world, and the reapers are the Angels. So shall it be at the end of the world: the Angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    Mat. 13 is a perfect picture of the church and her birth pains from the seed of christ the words of god the tares satan are gonna try to destroy the woman's child, the 2 children fought in rebecca's womb, jesus said the field was the world where that good seed will be sown meaning humanity th world is gonna birth a baby christ which is the h.g. that promise child that is gonna rule all nations

    I love this chapter, but could someone explain to me verses 28 and 29?
  • Caleb Dugan
    I continue my train of thought here ... Jesus mentions that the reapers represent the angels. I am just wondering what the angels were wanting to do. Did they want to kill false believers in the church, but God didn't want them to because they would kill true believers on accident? I am just curious about what the gathering up of tares is and how it is harmful to the true believers in the church

    In verse 28, the servants reapers too I guess asked if they should take the tares out of the field. The householder said to leave them so that they don't also pull out the wheat. Farther down in the chapter Jesus explains the parable further by saying that the wheat represents the children of the kingdom and the tares are the children of the wicked one. But Jesus also mentions...uhh...
  • Robert Sanborn Jr.
    One thing I can take from ch.13:54-58 is that Jesus did do mighty works in his hometown but not many.Why ? Because of their unbelief.They could not come to receive their healing because they got offended by his teaching,not because he didn't have the power to heal.
