Top  Previous  Next

Apr 14 6.30 Leaving the crowd, Jesus went into the  house. His disciples asked, “Explain the story of the wheat-like weed in the field.”

He answered, “He that planted the good seed is the Son of man. The field is the world; the sons of the kingdom1 are the good seed. The wheat-like weed are the sons of the evil one, whom the enemy, Satan, planted. The harvest is the end of the age and the reapers are angels. As weed is gathered and burnt, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of man will send his angels to rid his kingdom of everything offensive and lawless, and cast them into fire where   there will be weeping and grinding of teeth. Then, the righteous will shine bright as the sun in their Fathers kingdom.2 Let anyone with ears hear!”
