The below passage is commonly referred to as the Parable of the Weeds. Jesus tells the below parable:
Matthew 13:24-30: ”He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ But he said, ‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, “Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.”
Later in Matthew 13, Jesus explains the meaning of the Parable of the Weeds as follows:
Matthew 13:36-43: ”Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” He answered, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.”
The Parable of the Weeds
Jesus is very clear here in His words. Jesus said the reaping is coming, and the weeds will go to the place where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Who would deliberately want to go there? I bet no one. If people do not want to go into the fire, then why are there still weeds in this world? It seems it is because of total disbelief that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. If someone truly believes that Jesus is the way to God, then they would immediately love the Lord God with all their mind, soul, and heart, right?
Jesus said angels would be sent to gather out of His kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers. Why would anyone want to be caught up in this? Why would anyone not want to go to the Cross and be forgiven of their sins? Why would anyone want to be the cause of sin and a lawbreaker? They have not totally surrendered due to unbelief. Choose to be the good seed and fervently pray to God to help you be the good seed.
The Time is Coming
The time is coming when permanent darkness will fall upon the World. The light (Jesus) will be taken permanently away from those who did not grasp Him when He was here. Those in darkness will be taken to a place filled with weeping and gnashing of teeth. If you cannot believe this or this makes you angry, then go to God and sincerely, genuinely, and passionately ask for God’s help with this. Pray to God that he will show you the truth and let the truth set you free.
