The Wheat Will Become Distinguishable from the Tares

harvest

The word below I received yesterday morning in prayer.  I hope it blesses and edifies the Body of Christ.

“You look around and realize it is hard to find Me in this world.  It seems as though there is nothing but darkness, even in the places that were filled with light not long ago.  You envision this growing darkness is indeed winning.  You wonder when and if the light will return.  Even love, true love, seems like a distant memory.  That light which remains in you seems like a target.  You are hated and despised for My name’s sake, and now you understand My warnings of the things that were coming to the face of the earth.  These things are now right before your eyes.

In your thoughts you conclude that I have somehow lost this battle.  I assure you, I have not.  I am done shedding My light into mixture.  I am tired of My light being tainted with man’s deliberate acts of darkness.  My light has been used to form shadows where truth and lies mingle and create confusion.  I want no part in this.  Let the darkness be dark so that those who remain in it will stumble.  Let My light be pure so all will know without a doubt that it is of Me.

Combine hot and cold and you get lukewarm. Combine light with darkness and you get twilight and shadows.

What does it mean to be holy? In holiness is there mixture?

You know there is not.  Holiness is about purity.  I am pure and I want a people who are pure.  You were not made for mixture.  Again I say, let the light be light and the dark be dark.  May My people be drawn out of the shadows.

I am calling My sheep into My fold where it shines like the noonday sun with no shadow of turning.  Those who have entered in will feast on the lush green grasses and receive nourishment for their souls.  I will feed their hunger for righteousness and they will be satisfied.

I am the Gate.  Through Me My sheep come in and go out.  They come hungry and with their last flicker of light threatened in the way a candle flame is assaulted in a windstorm.  They go out filled and with their light shining brightly.

I will never withdraw My light from My true people.  The smoldering wick I will not snuff out.  Yet My people will not continue to dwell in this state.  They will come out.  Listen and hear My voice.  This not about a physical place.  It is about a spiritual state.

After you have come in and received you will go out and give.  This the way of My kingdom.  I do not deposit Myself into stagnant pools, but I pour Myself out into flowing rivers.  Receiving and giving go hand in hand.  As I pour out My Spirit it will not be contained.  It will burst the dams of even the stubborn heart.  Where there can be no flow I will not pour Myself out.

You have seen many warnings concerning that which is coming in the natural.  Yet it is of greater importance that you are prepared for that which is coming in the supernatural. Through this process, which is coming in the supernatural, the wheat will become distinguishable from the tares.  While they continue to grow side by side My warning is manifest in the gift of discernment that allows you to distinguish one from the other.

The day of the harvest is near, very near, and when it comes I will burn the tares and they will be utterly destroyed.  This action is not so much about their existence as it is about halting their reproduction.  Each produces after its own kind.  Wheat begets wheat.  Tare begets tare.  Stopping this process is an act of My mercy so that this kind spreads no further.

I will fill My storehouses on this day, but before this harvest comes I require the full number of workers in My harvest fields.  Now is the day of election.  As I call out from My throne, “Who will go for Me?  Whom shall I send?”  I am listening for those who will answer, “Here am I, LORD, send me.”

Sharpen your sickle.  Draw it time and again across the whetstone of My word until the edge is fine and fit for much work.  Behold, the hour grows late.  The time of preparation has nearly come to an end.  Heed My word that you may be put to use and therefore share in the joy of the harvest.”

I had this vision of the wheat and tares and heard the Lord say He sees his wheat rising above the tares. I was googling things on this vision and I found this article. I was blessed as this is the vison and message I heard. I actually did a study on it and was intrigued with what I found ,

God is so good! These times which are coming and the events which will be unfolding will not catch us unaware. It is because the LORD does nothing without first warning His servants the prophets.

There is another thought that comes to mind regarding this. If a head of wheat falls to the ground will not another head of wheat rise up in its place? And likewise would this not occur with the tare? God made all things so that they would produce after their own kind. (Genesis 1:21)

Laura, thank you for your thoughts.
I’m afraid you have misinterpreted this word. Wheat begets wheat and tare begets tare is not speaking of reproduction. It is speaking of fruit. In Matthew 7:17 Jesus reminds us that good trees bear good fruit and bad trees, bad fruit. So the fruit of a tree is according to its kind.

Lately there are 2 anointed praise and worship songs about rivers that I cannot get off my heart or mind. I wake up and they are literally singing over me before I am even awake. They are “The River” by Jordan Feliz. Not sure if this is his real name, but would be amazing since the translation would be Happy Jordan (River) from the Holy Land. The other is “In the River” by Jesus Culture on their just released 2016 album Let It Echo recorded live during worship services at their home church in Folsom, CA. This is a suburb of the city named after the Sacraments of the Lord: Sacramento, where in the natural gold was discovered in the very rivers that flow through this region: the Sacramento River and the American River. I have been blessed that God has deposited this amazing group of believers from Redding, CA into my own backyard a year ago. What amazing timing our God has. He is replicating from the natural gold history to the coming revelation of His glory through the signs and wonders which will soon burst forth from his remnant church. Let it indeed echo — our songs of praise. Evil has no defense against our raising one voice to declare our God is good, holy, pure and trustworthy. His sheep indeed know his voice.

Wow, do you go to Bill Johnson’s church. or have you visited it?

Jesus Culture grew out of Bethel’s youth ministry…their praise and worship band. So yes, I have been to Bethel, and have heard Bill in Roseville, CA (see above comment) as he would attend their Friday Nights on Fire and conferences. I’ve seen Glory Tunnels where people just fall over under the glorious presence of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Culture decided to church plant and could have moved anywhere, but moved to Folsom, CA like about as close as you can get to my foothills suburb. Talk about God answering the desires of your heart. I am still so wowed that on Sundays I am worshipping with people from all over No. Calif. with Kim Walker-Smith and Chris Quilala. Their 2016 album “Let It Echo” was recorded at Sunday worship services so my voice is a teeny, tiny part of the crowd of witnesses! Hallelujah!

Right! “Deep Cries Out” is a classic and predated the other two. It is one of the fist songs I learned while at a Roseville, CA church affiliated with Bethel. I just loved Bethel’s music from the very first. I could discern the anointing…the passion for Jesus and Father God…treating Holy Spirit as the spirit of power and prophecy that He is. I marveled at church services that left time for the workings of the Holy Spirit…no printed order of service. If He was moving…then that was pursued with passion. I had attended polite worship churches before that. I had NO IDEA that church could be interactive…that Holy Spirit still heals…that prophetic gifts are for now. I followed my 18-year-old daughter to their River City School of Supernatural Ministry. (There’s that RIVER again!) Quite a journey since 2010.

A dear brother of mine who travels the world preaching the Gospel (not so much in the church as on the streets) recently left from a 6 and a half month stay there. He told me of the things they do and there is no doubt that they are strongly promoting the Holy Spirit and His power in the church. There are healing rooms, prophecy rooms, “treasure hunts” (focusing on words of knowledge) and so on. He commented, “Every weekend is a revival. There is church not just on Sunday but all weekend long.”

Bethel has come under a lot of attack but the fruit coming out of it speaks for it. (I guess we’re going right back to the word of the LORD that brought about this whole string in the first place). I’ve been moved by Jesus Culture music and inspired by Darren Wilson’s documentaries (if you haven’t seen them you MUST!) In many ways I see that Bethel is walking on the path that we see in Acts. I have been somewhat skeptical of the “mega church” and their seeker friendly practices but Bethel is definitely an exception.

I’m puzzled. Where in the Word does it say that Christians do any sickle work? Rev. 14 comes to mind, but that’s not the believers.

Michael, I appreciate your testing of the word. This is definitely a necessary step in determining its validity.

There is no specific word regarding Christians doing sickle work however there is specific reference to the harvest being many and the workers being few. It is inferred that a worker in the harvest would use the tools necessary to reap the harvest. However, I did have Revelation 14 come to mind as well as it talks about the 2 sharp sickles used to reap a righteous and an unrighteous harvest. It is interesting now that I think about it as this is also a separation.

We are instructed in Gods word not to separate the wheat and the tares. That is the reaper Angels job! We could make a mistake and separate the wheat and be charged with innocent blood shed! Read the link below for the scriptures! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_Tares

Laura, nowhere is it stated (in this word or in the Logos) that we are to separate the wheat from the tares. However, we know specifically that we are to work the harvest. In fact Jesus infers that there are not enough willing workers for the harvest and that we should pray that more be sent.

Yes we are to go to the ends of the earth sharing the good news of the gospel. I do agree. I was confused by wheat begets wheat and tares beget tares. I thought you were talking about reproduction.

The weeds are not noticeable until a certain point of time, but they do become obvious (Matthew 13:26) and we can assume become more obvious until the harvest time arrives. The weeds become obvious during the time of transition symbolically represented by the time between Yom Kippur and Sukkot. During this time between the most solemn holiday, the Day of Atonement and the most joyous, The Feast of Tabernacles, is symbolic of Israel’s forty years in the desert, also of transformation. The Feast of Booths (also known as Sukkot and Tabernacles) reflects God’s protection and safety of Israel, and of us, in the clouds as God’s protects us on all sides, above, below, to the left and to the right, ahead and behind. During this transition time, which we find ourselves now, God settles His own on the level He has for each of us doing what He has called each one of us to do, not in unbridled enthusiasm but in humble service to Him. These four days between the two holidays is an amazing study. Here is one discussion http://www.aish.com/tp/i/oai/48969421.html from a Jewish perspective. As Christians, the children so to speak, our hearts should be united to the faith of our spiritual fathers, what God teaches through the Torah.

The sickle is closely associated with the sword. The Angel of the Lord goes before us as He went before Joshua in battle.

When you work in the harvest, you are harvesting. To harvest the wheat, you use a sickle, right? Right.
We are his workers in the field, no?

Well, I understand what you’re saying, but the sickle represents physical death (reaping the harvest). Don’t we sow and water, and let God do the reaping? Jesus said we should be laborers in the harvest field, all right. The sickle cuts down the plants, both wheat and tares, thus killing them. “Sharpen your sickle” doesn’t strike me as scriptural because we don’t go around taking lives. See Matthew 13:30-39 as well as Rev. 14.

John 4:35-38 does speak of reaping in the sense of bringing souls to Christ, but not every reference to a particular thing (like reaping, for instance) can be lumped together to mean the same thing. Christians reap through love and the Word, not with the forceful, terminal sickle.

It just does not seem like the Lord would tell us to sharpen our sickles. Or am I missing something here?

Mitch Salmon

That’s an interesting thought, Michael. If indeed all examples are that of death then there is certainly no way we would be called to such a thing.

What I was hearing was a strong impression towards the sword of the Spirit as referenced as a part of our spiritual armor. I also understood as He was speaking that we needed to know the word of the LORD (written word) in increasing measure. So when we run a tool over the whetstone it is sharpened and fit for work and when we know the word of the LORD we are sharpened and fit for work. We are also told that iron sharpens iron and that is what is happening in our dialog.

Michael, the reference to sickle I believe refers to the beginning of the counting of the Omer, a measure. I wrote about measure here: http://www.befoundfaithful.com/christ-coming-in-a-micron.html. Also see Deuteronomy 16:9. The counting of the Omer is the time of purification.
