Where Did the Tares Come From?

Updated on April 10, 2018

Jerry started in the trucking industry in 1978 and has spent most of his life on the open road as a Trucker Evangelist and Christian Author.

But while men slept, the 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.

Matthew 13: 27- 30 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir didst thou not sow good seed in thy field?

From whence then hath it tares?

28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the 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.

I Have discovered in my walk with Christ that dealing with tares is both helping and equipping us for the coming end time conflict with the Kingdom of Darkness.

I have watched leaders of ministries mature before my eyes as they had to confront people who would not summit to authority and was guilty of questioning every decision these leaders would make.

Many ministries would do well to realize that the Lord wants some of the tares or trouble makers to get in and he is going to continue to allow Satan to sow them.

The Lord allowed his disciples to be confronted with the enemy to prepare them for the ministry planned for them.

The word in Matthew is clear in the command to allow both the good and the bad to grow together until the harvest then God will do the separating.

In order to give us some insight of what the Lord is referring to in this beatitude, I have made available for your convenience a teaching video below explaining the noticeable difference in the wheat and the tares.

Watch and Listen to Mitch give this challenging teaching from the rice fields of Southern Luzon…

Why allow both to grow together

One thing to realize is that the tares are identical in appearance with the wheat until the harvest then there is a dramatic change that takes place in their appearance which will expose their true colors.

The tares will turn a dingy dark brown and can easily be separated.

The wheat will bend over while the tares with all their pride will remain standing upright.

I have been confronted by leaders of powerful ministries concerning individuals whom they wanted to have issues with.

I cautiously informed them that some people are good people and will make fine soldiers someday but right now they are in the learning stage of their life.

Some churches have approached me asking advice concerning people who cause trouble and seem to find fault with everything the leadership attempts to accomplish and never around to help find a solution.

I have always referred them back to Matthew 13: 30 which says to let them both grow together until the harvest; and in the time of harvest he will say to the reapers, gather the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.

One very important point I try to emphasize is this; you may be successful in uprooting the trouble makers but you stand a good chance of the bad taking some of the good people with them when they leave.

God says in his word to let them both grow together and that is what we need to do lest we uproot some of the good and lose ground to the enemy and hurt the Kingdom of God.

The Lord purposely allows conflict because it helps to train the ministry he is raising up.

The people that have self ambitions and who are self appointed will not be able to stand when the real battle comes for they have no root.

My Conclusion

The Lord uses conflict and persecution as a way to separate the fearful and unbelieving from his work.

The greater the conflict will produce the greatest anointing because we will never walk in our fullness until we are willing to sacrifice everything for the truth of God’s word and his will for our life.

The Lord has stated in his word that he honors his word above his name.

If we are to speak in his honorable name, we must be adequately trained or we could do more harm than good to the Kingdom of God.

We need to learn from our elders who have gone before us.

They have matured in their gifts and braved many attacks from the enemy and have overcome because of their on the job training which they received from hands on experience in dealing with the enemy.

We must never try to copy or emulate other people but bear our own cross.

We have come to a time and place in which the prophetic ministry must be fully restored in the church because it will bring about unity and restoration to the other ministry offices in the church of Jesus Christ.

Those who preach or prophesy must be sensitive to what the Lord is saying and not be concerned about what man will think about what is said because man is not the one who will be signing their report card.

      Yes, I agree and it could save some church splits if they listen to the wisdom in the message.
