    Christ Jesus is the merchant. He purchased the pearl of great price lost sinners . Rev. 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment
  • Robby
    What about the merchant of verses 45 and 46? Was Jesus referring to the rich young ruler, who walked away rather than giving everything he had to obtain his redemption?
  • 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
  • Caleb Dugan
    I love this chapter, but could someone explain to me verses 28 and 29?
  • Jerry
    The tares are devils, the children of the devil. They must be cast out of men before the harvest, lest you condemn both the man and the devil. The casting out of the devil is the separation of the tares from the wheat, and then the judgment at the end of the world, when the Devil and his Angels are cast into the lake of fire. God bless.
  • Jerry
    The devils must be cast out of men before the judgment, lest you condemn the possessed along with the devils. The devil and his children, the devils are the tares, the good seed are the children of the Son of man. At this time, both are entwined together, until Jesus comes and casts the devils out, and they are separated from the good wheat, then the judgment of all things at the end of the world.
  • Brenda Dobson
    Continue reading in Matthew 13:36-42- This explains what the tares are and how they got there and what will be done with them when Jesus comes at the end of the world.
  • 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
  • Jerry
    If you cast one who is possessed of a devil into the fire, you throw the devil in yes, but also the one who is possessed. Cast out the devil first, or that Angel of the Devil, and then you may harvest the man and the devil for judgment, so that both are not condemned together, but only the child of the wicked one, the Serpent is condemned. God sent his Son to save the world, not condemn it.
  • Brenda Dobson
    Jesus is saying to let the good and bad people grow together and then at the end time the Angles will gather up the bad people tares and they will be thrown in the lake of fire. We are to evangelize to the bad unbelieving people in hopes of winning them to truth Jesus. We must mingle together to do this, therefore the wheat and tares grow together.
  • Caleb Dugan
    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.

    Verse 52 There are many treasures that we can learn from the Bible. We want to share those with others.
  • Alex
    How do we know that Christ is really God the son? Simply b c he sows the very seeds of God in humanity which is the Word th living Word not the written word, the living word is the very seed of God and this seed can only be deposited in our hearts by hearing his voice etc not by reading anything but by HEARING means divine understanding, its gestation in the spritual realm,HE IS THE BRIDEGROOM GBU
  • Alex
    The original Promise was i will multiply thy seed Christ seed as the stars of heaven Thats y the sower will go forth to sow his precious seed in humanity. Its the very seed of God to whom the word that good seed came it made them Gods,God was so pasionate about this PROMISE that he swore by his very self I have said his words seeds ye are Gods. Being bornagain of an incorruptible seed
  • Alex
    Jesus said we wd know a tree by his fruits thus we know that christ is god the son by his fruits his words are the very seeds of god he breathe on them and they received the h.g. thus the h.g. was his fruit which is a baby christ his offspring via his seed th word. the kingdom has to come via a birth thats y he is saying unless you receive the kingdom as a lil child etc impling a heavenly birth.
  • Adam
    The Bible literally says Jesus is the son of God the father so that's why I believe it. Matthew 17:5
  • BSP
    Verse 23 We all have different circumstances in life and can all give different amount of time. Jehovah God wants us to give him our very best and he views us as individuals.
  • Obbie Beal
    note: not food ,clothing, shelter, ..., ..., is on Jesus mind, but T K of Heaven, T K of Heaven, (the place prepared for those Born-Again) is /was mightily on Jesus mind.

    The Word was Made Flesh and Dwelt Among Us(John1:14)The Son of God. He is The Living Word(Hebrews4:12 Quick Means Living) Like you Said,The Wheat are The Saved.You have everything Kind of Right Just a Little Mixed Up. Hard to Understand. It's Just a Story, Picture of Salvation and End of World. Holy Ghost is Not H.G

  • A disciple
    "Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand." Now a Parable is a way teaching a moral and spiritual truth by means of some common and familiar thing. So it is not for want of intelligence, or that there must be some kind of secret code to be deciphered; but a moral and spiritual condition that reverences the truth.
  • A disciple
    "..Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given." Jesus makes wise the simple, and gives us knowledge and understanding about all things; while the ungodly, who reject all God's instruction and counsel, are left to go their scornful ways without knowledge. No matter how hard we try we can't force them to understand what they cannot hear.
  • BSP
    Verse 16~Jesus was commending and blessing his disciples for actually hearing and grasping the meaning of the words that he spoke.
  • BSP
    Verse 23~We don't only want to read and hear God's Word, but we must understand it to truly bear good fruit in our lives.
