Faking the fruit

Matthew 13:25-29

King James Version (KJV)

 25But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27So 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? 28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

This is a powerful parable. This is one of my favorites. Here’s the reason why… Jesus is talking about the sower. The sower has worked hard and sowed his field with good seed. The fruit bearing seed. The seed that will produce after its own kind. I want you to see something here though. The enemy came in and sowed tares the kind that produces after its own kind. The tares were sowed to cause the wheat to die. How? The rich soil will hold any kind of seed. It could be good seed and bad seed. The tares are the representation of bad seed. This seed was used to choke out the wheat seed and to steal the harvest. To cause the harvest to fail. What I know about plants is this… If you plant something closer to a different plant one of them will try to take over and dominate. The one plant will try to steal sunlight and as well as the nutrients and water from the other.

Here’s the thing I want you to know and understand. To the untrained eye the tares and wheat will look the same. If the harvester is not trained properly he will gather both types and the potential for death is certain. The tares mimic wheat. They actually look like wheat. They are fake fruit! Fake fruit will give you a fake harvest.

These tares are very poisonous. If swallowed it can cause death. This is just like the enemy of your soul. While you are out working for the Lord and sowing good seed, he (enemy) has gone through one of the doors that you left open. He came in and sowed dangerous seed. When you look at your harvest you see that you have two different types of fruit growing. Don’t mix this up though. They will both have to be reaped and one will have to be thrown out. But which one? They both look the same! The one that is genuine. The one that produces after its own kind. The reason why the servants asked the master about the tares is that they recognized the difference. They sowed enough wheat to know what wheat looks like. They were not fooled. They recognized the difference of wheat and tares and the little differences.

Fake is defined as a thing that is not genuine; a forgery or sham. The church today needs to be ready and prepared. There is plenty of fake Christians (religious and traditionalist) and fake Pastors. They sound good but the fruit they are producing is fake. Are you fake? Do you look like real fruit? Are you producing a good harvest or a harvest of forgery? A tree is known by its fruit. A King is known by his kingdom. Since the fall of man satan has been known. He knows the Word of God and he knows how to trick and deceive. Make a choice and check out the fruit before you eat. You could be eating poison.

The Church I love thee with an everlasting love. I am zealous for My Love. How I desire thee to be fruitful and to multiply. I desire thee to be blessed and to bless others. Prepare yourself like a farmer will prepare his field for the rains. The unprepared farmer will not increase and will not be able to be a blessing. Prepare your soil (soul) the day is coming that your harvest will be judged. Will you look to Me declares the Lord? Will you work in my field? Will you be prepared? I am looking for the genuine people. I am looking for laborers, for My harvest is truly bountiful!
