The Wild Ones
The time of the consummation is about to occur. Recently the Lord declared that He is about to go after the wild ones. This would be referring to the wild tares.
24 Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
The above Scripture says the reapers will first bind or bundle the tares to burn them. To bind or bundle can mean: to burden, silence, to make dumb, to throw into chains, to forbid or prohibit, or to make captive, to put under obligation/law/or duty.
The harvest is about to manifest, but first the angels (reapers) are going to bind the tares (wild ones) and burn them. In this binding and burning, the below things will take place:
* The burden of each person’s response (this can be either verbal or written reaction) and word (their utterance, remark, sworn intention, or comment) towards God’s prophecy will be upon them.
36 But the burden of the Lord you must mention no more, for every man’s burden is his own response and word [for as they mockingly call all prophecies burdens, whether good or bad, so will it prove to be to them; God will take them at their own word]; for you pervert the words [not of a lifeless idol, but] of the living God, the Lord of hosts, our God!
* God is going to silence the ignorant (foolish), the lying lips, the dead or the ones not listening to God, the ones that continue to sin, the earth will be silent [the flesh], those that do not believe in the resurrection will be put to silence, and there will be silence in heaven as the Lord is about to release all the prayers of the saints upon the earth before the seven trumpets manifest (1 Peter 2:15; Psalm 115:17; Psalm 30:1; Isaiah 41:1; Jeremiah 8:14; Habakkuk 2:20; Matthew 22:34; Revelation 8:1-6).
* He will make dumb those that need to be disciplined so that they may attain true Wisdom and forgiveness from God. They will be made quiet among the wicked so that they may learn self-control in the Holy Spirit as He muzzles their mouth from sinning, in the process. He will stir up sorrow within them which will increase passion inside as they reflect on the things of God rightly, and then they will speak.
I said, “I will guard my ways,
Lest I sin with my tongue;
I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle,
While the wicked are before me.”
2 I was mute [or dumb in other versions] with silence,
I held my peace even from good;
And my sorrow was stirred up.
3 My heart was hot within me;
While I was musing, the fire burned.
Then I spoke with my tongue:
* He will put false prophets in to chains of darkness, into hell, for the coming judgment (2 Peter 2:1-6). Whoever you obey, you will be made a slave to and if in chains then the sin you walk in will keep you in chains, leading eventually to death (Romans 6:16).
* Those that continue to walk in harlotry will continue to not be permitted to turn to God. They will become darker in their harlotries and God will have to discipline them in their ways (Hosea 5:1-4).
* Those being thrown into the fire will be held under obligation, law, or duty. They will be held accountable unto God. If they continue to walk in disobedience to the Holy Spirit, they fall still under the Law and will be held accountable to it (James 2:8-13). Those that have been told to do something by God will be held to performing that duty, whether they want to or not. They will have to submit under God and His rule (Ecclesiastes 12:13). If one is commanded to do something for God and is not ‘honored’ for it in doing it, they should not be offended by that. They will learn the duty of the Lord; that it is unto His honor and they will learn that it’s not unto their honor and glory (Luke 17:5-10). The tares will learn true humility.
Tares are known as weeds that grow among corn. So, this confirms the wheat (grain) and tares (wild ones, weeds) will grow up together. God refers to His Truth (Holy Spirit) as manna from heaven or the corn of heaven (Psalm 78:24). In this current hour, both the Truth (the ones being led by the Holy Spirit fully) are growing up along with the weeds in their falsity (not being led by the Spirit of God; the disobedient ones). These angels will be throwing all that is not led of God into the fiery furnace to be burned.
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field.”
37 He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. 39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. 40 Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. 41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, 42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
Weeds are known to compete with the desired plants for the resources that the desired plants would normally need such as sunlight, nutrients, water, and an area to grow. In spiritual terms this would be anything that is competing with the Truth of God’s Spirit working in and among His people. These ‘weeds’ are working against Christ, the Son of God and His righteousness (sunlight, Malachi 4:2). Since the righteousness (sunlight) is being limited, the power to exchange the Holy Spirit’s living words to be exchanged with the words of the prince of the air (Ephesians 2:2), there is a lack of true nutrients (spiritual light to provide much growth for the individual). This is similar to the process of photosynthesis. It’s as if the weeds are preventing the natural growth process because they’re taking away the nutrients that would normally be provided. In clearer terms, God created a plan/order or process that was natural in His eyes and there are unnatural or things working out of their created order (or position) to take away the Life necessary to live freely in the Spirit.
Weeds are also known to degrade the quality of the desired plant. To degrade can also mean to ‘demote’ or ‘dishonor.’ These ‘weeds’ are placing Christ or the Life of Christ in the Spirit to a lower standard—‘beneath them,’ so to say. Therefore putting them self before God, thinking they can lead the way of their own life and they come first before all things. They are basically thinking less of what God has chosen as the Truth and the Life, the King of all things (John 8:49). This is no different than when Christ told the Pharisees the Truth and they still didn’t believe Him, that I AM CAME BEFORE ABRAHAM, OR IN OTHER WORDS I AM CAME BEFORE MAN. This was a significant spiritual statement Christ was making—that mankind never will or has come before God (John 8:48-59). God will always be first before all things. One truly led by the Spirit will come to this understanding and accept it as right, no matter what their losses may come to in the earthly life as a result of attaining it fully as acceptable and right according to God.
Weeds can also cause physical irritation (burs, prickles, or thorns) and chemical irritation (poison). This is probably what Paul was referring to when he asked God to remove the thorn from his side. He was referring to the weed that was growing alongside him, buffeting him or forcing their own way repeatedly upon him, making it a challenge to exalt Christ and His ways above all else (2 Corinthians 12:7-10). The poisonous weeds refers to ones without true understanding of the things of God because they have not been fully surrendered unto the Lord (subdued to complete obedience unto Him); but God in this hour has planned His vengeance upon them where He will allow them to slip, leading to calamity (Deuteronomy 32:28-43).
Lastly weeds can cause root damage to foundations (1 Corinthians 13:10). In spiritual terms, this means the ones sent from the enemy are ruining the foundations of Christ, what He stood for and what Peter was told his foundation would be built upon—the listening and following of Father God (John 5:19, John 5:30; John 6:38; John 8:28; John 12:49, John 12:50; John 14:10; Matthew 16:16-18).
God must separate the wheat from the wild ones (tares) because if He doesn’t, the wheat will be burned also and that’s not what God wants which is similar to what He said about not flooding the entire earth again (Genesis 9:11-15). However, He plans to burn parts because of the effects it has on His desires. After He has bound and burned the tares He plans to bring His wheat into the barn or storehouse.
The storehouse is where God’s treasure is. This is not a worldly treasure but it’s what Moses asked God for when he wanted confirmation of having grace in God’s sight and His presence with them at all times; revealing God’s glory to them and that He knew Moses by name.
Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people.’ But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.’ 13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people.”
14 And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
15 Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here.16 For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.”
17 So the Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”
18 And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.”
While the tares are going through the fire (Jeremiah 50:32), His true people (wheat) will be stable throughout that period. They will have God’s Wisdom and knowledge to stand in those times and their strength will be their salvation in Christ through their obedience. They will have God’s treasure of fear of Him.
The Lord is exalted, for He dwells on high;
He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness.
6 Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times,
And the strength of salvation;
The fear of the Lord is His treasure.
In addition, the Lord will make sure His people will not go without. He will give them the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches of secret places. Anything that was gained through darkness (disobedience unto God) will be taken away from them (Isaiah 45:1-7). Even anything held back from the Lord and His purposes through disobedience will be required to be released so that the one holding back may save their life from even their own enemies among them in their divided kingdoms (Jeremiah 41:8).
When Moses asked to be separated to be shown to all that He has grace from God that means that God is about to openly acknowledge to all who has truly His grace—and that is His Son Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:10). Those that truly have His Son which also means they have truly the Father; they have SEEN the Son and have SEEN the Father:
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father
His people are about to experience a transfiguration because of the encounter they are about to experience. They will see both the Father and the Son. As this visitation occurs, a change in them will transpire for this to happen and this will allow them to enter into His presence/storehouse/barn—Himself fully. Once they enter into this, they will then have complete understanding, know the mystery of God, Christ fully and completely as His Father, where all the riches of Wisdom and knowledge are:
My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
So, this is a time of God beginning to bundle and separate the wild ones that have been growing alongside the wheat for a time, in order that they may burn and once this is done, He will allow His true people to enter into Himself FULLY. This is where they will fully know as He is fully known (1 Corinthians 13:12).
The change is at hand and will occur quickly. Hear what the Spirit is saying.
