Satan’s malicious intention in sowing tares among the wheat is to cause problems and confusion (James 3:16). The bad seeds grow to become poisonous weeds that allow only the healthiest of the wheat to survive. Tares, like weeds, have never been a marketable product. “Tares” are actually darnel, a seed hardly identifiable from the wheat seed, and “immature wheat” and darnel look alike. To try to destroy the darnel (tare) would mean destroying much of the wheat, and separating one from the other would be beyond the servants’ abilities. Only when the wheat has “matured” can the tares be detected. Then the tares are gathered together in bundles in the field and destroyed by fire.
Many who are NOT in the “process of conversion/transformation” resemble those who are. Just like true Christians, they go to church, pray, and read the Bible, but they are only religious “hobbyists”. Jesus calls them “sons of the wicked one” (Matthew 13:38), and being tares, they will be destroyed. The tares are not originally from the wicked one, but they develop character according to Satan’s strong influence and they are led by the enemy and so are his children (John 8:44).
Let us be the WHEAT because HARVEST TIME IS HERE! Hallelujah and Amen 🙌🏼🙏🏽❤️
Father, I pray for a “spirit of prayer” to spread like wildfire across our homes, churches, land and world until every church becomes A HOUSE OF PRAYER, saturated with spirit-led, prevailing prayer resulting in a harvest of souls turning back to The Lord! Father, cast out every wicked way, every evil thought and every dastardly deed! Forgive us of every sin, transgression and iniquity that has caused us to compromise our faith and walk against your perfect will. Wash us with the blood of Christ and we will be cleansed from the inside out! Father, fill us with your precious Holy Spirit and set our souls on blazing fire with a fervent love and overflow of desire for more of your presence and power to do the work of the kingdom right here on earth—all for Your Glory, oh God! It’s in the saving name of Jesus I pray and praise you always…Amen.
“He said to them, “It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer, but you make it a den of robbers.” Matthew 21:13

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” (Psalms 121:1-2)
Waiting on God is a spiritual discipline that believers should learn early on in their Christian walk. Impatience is an indication of a lack of faith—Learn to trust God’s timing! Wait patiently on the Lord and have Faith that Father Knows Best. ~M. Ford
