Wheat or Weeds

Wheat or Weeds? Watch Your Harvest

Intro

Scripture

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his 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. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of 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.
(Mat 13:24-30 KJVA)

Wheat or weeds? What does our heart produce? Have we prepared the soil of our hearts? What crop are we harvesting? The fruit we bear, does it give Glory to our Creator? Do we bear fruit worthy of repentance and the calling upon our lives? Has the fallow ground being broken and the fields stirred? these are questions we oft need to ask ourselves, when we enter God’s Presence.

Some time back, when first starting Fertiileground’s Blog I had written about these matters. It is time we take a journey back into time. For a fairly long period and season we have been praying for revival. The time is now to tack stock. We need to answer these very critical questions, before the time runs out. Time is of the essence!

Be Aware

We need to be careful of that which we allow in our hearts. Be aware of what we feed our spirit, soul and body. That which we meditate or think of mostly may produce fruit in our lives. We are aware, death and life are in the power of our tongue. Remember our Lord’s parables of the wheat and tares (weeds). Including that of the soils.

These parables are which led me to start my blog (Fertiileground’s Blog) This also placed the vision in my heart eventually of turning this blog into a ministry website (https://www.ian@fertiileground.wordpress.com). In the parable of the soils, we read about the different ground types. These soil types picture the differences in men’s hearts. Whether fallow, good, rocky and thorny ground. The Seed is the Word of God. The soil represents what is in the heart of men and women.

We also need to watch what we allow in our eye, ear and mouth sockets. It is a proven fact that what is in the hearts of men will come out of their mouth. Remember our Lord warns us about what comes out of our mouths. We need to take every thought captive, bringing it into obedience to the Lord our God! Paul speaks of these matters in his letters. In Romans, he reminds us to renew our minds, with the Word of God (see Rom 12:1-2).

Wheat or Weeds

In his second letter to the Corinthians he writes: –

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

We are to be sure that which we allow in our borders gives Glory to God! Does that which we allow bring life or death? Are we building or are we pulling down, that which has been placed in our hands through God? What do we mainly think about during our waking hours? Where do we spend our time? That which we focus on the most may become our present reality!

Mara (Bitterness)

Saturday night my wife and I watched a movie icw sleep paralysis. Briefly, the heroes and heroines are faced with traumatised events, which took place in their lives. These events later took on nightmarish images, producing in them a fear of sleeping. Their dream and sleep therapist took upon him the challenges of understanding what happens during rapid eye movement, which happened in their sleep.

Both the victims and their therapist, could not explain certain phenomena which seemed to take place in the early, small hours of the morning when they were in deep sleep. Usually, during these hours, something terrible seemed to happen. Most of them died in their sleep. How could they explain these occurrences? It happened they all had a common denominator, of going through some or other traumatic event.

These traumatic events also caused bitterness to enter into there lives. For one they could not forgive themselves nor would they forgive any third parties involved in their situation. You see when we walk in unforgiveness we may become embittered in and towards those who may have wronged us. Whether it is an incident which had taken place or something we may have said or done.

A Curved Ball

Sometimes life throws us a curved, ball and we are on the receiving edge. We may have fallen along the wayside, and could not easily stand up again. Maybe we are caught in the rat race of modern society, (a dog-eat-dog world!)! Maybe the cares of life may have entangled us in her web. Maybe we are fortunate enough to fall in good soil. All these things have to do with our hearts desires. That is what are we focused upon?

Know this our sin shall find us out, eventually destroying us. For these reasons we need to walk and live a repentant life, accepting the only answer and comfort found in and through our only Mediator! We are not able to walk with unforgiveness in our hearts and lives. The reason being it is not a healthy path.

This is where our Lord (Christ Jesus Messiah) is able to meet us! He is the only Person, Man who ever lived and walked among us without sin. He is and was without sin, God’s Perfect Sacrifice for man’s Salvation, \Deliverance and Forgiveness. He took the bitterness which is in the world upon Himself making life sweet for all who call upon\His Name! To be able to have and receive Life in abundance and all its fullness.

They linked this to feelings of guilt, possible unforgiveness and self-hatred. They focused on these traumatic events throughout their waking hours. They thought about their trauma, which had taken over their daily lifestyle. In most of these cases, they seemed to suddenly become paralysed through fear. Scripture tells us; “fear has torment_ _ _” But God’s Perfect Love (Agape) casts away fear. (see 1Jn 4:18 KJV).

Agape

His Love surpasses all human understanding

After all: – ’tis His Love (Agape) which nailed Him to the cross. He was and is the perfect sacrifice, for all men everywhere. Being without sin, He became sin for us. He is the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world. Since we are sure Christ Jesus died in our place, forgives us for our sin and wickedness! Through our acceptance of Him (Christ Jesus) as Personal Lord and Saviour of our lives, we are able to overcome the enemy, with the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (see Rev 12:9-11, Rev 7:9-14; 1 Pet 1:15 -25 & Lev 14:24-29).

“It is always His Goodness and Perfect Love which leads us to repentance! We need to accept \His Forgiving Grace Love and Mercy! We need to return and turn toward Him! He alone has the Words of Life! We are certain, knowing without any doubt; He is the Messiah! Salvation is first for the Jews then for the gentiles and eventually for all who would call on His Name. For there is no other name through which we are and may be saved!”

“Hear the Lord’s Cry! Hearken to His Word! He is calling all men and women everywhere. to come to repentance. Behold the establishment of His Kingdom is at hand! Behold I looked and saw it arise upon the Horizon ! Are you ready? The time is now for deliverance, healing, Salvation!! There is no other Name in the Heavens above or on the Earth below by or through we can be saved!”

“There is only One door and One Shepherd! Only One Mediator between God and man, through which and by Whom we shall be saved, healed and delivered! Hear the cry from the heavens and the Earth! All of Creation awaits the revealing of the sons and daughters of God. Restoration, Revival, Reformation is here. Return to the Lord our God. The Harvest is Ripe! The fields are ready to be brought into the threshing floor.”

“Time is of the essence! Judgement has already started with the church. The Fear of God is returning! My House is a House of Prayer for Every Nation;” says the Lord! “He who has an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying, to His Church! Repentance is the call of the Lord upon all the nations. Hear Him calling the Prodigals! Return to Me, for all whom diligently seek Me in these days shall be found of Me;” says the Lord!

“For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Eph 3:14-21 KJVA)

The fields are ripe, white for Harvest! Pray the Lord our God to send workers into this end time Harvest fields! Pray with us the following prayer, with a Truly Repentant Heart!
