Dear children of the living God, we must not be surprised that there are tares, and that they are extremely harmful. They should never be taken lightly. The scriptures tells all saints (G40 hagios), that He has given us the whole armor of God, to stand against the wiles of the devil. Why? Because we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph. 6:11-(See this whole chapter).
Wiles means (G3180) methodeia-traveling over, i.e. travesty (trickery), lie in wait. Holy brothers and sisters we must understand that the devil is behind all demonic entities, and evil methods to trouble the saints (G40 hagios), and infiltrate amongst believers.
The devil is the ruler, source, promoter, and evil power behind all of the demonic, and also evil wicked persons sent to fight against the true church. The devil foments all and any manners of evils, persecutions, and hatred against the true church, and even against God Almighty.
The devil plants his tares by stealth. God tells us in the parables of the tares that once planted, as the wheat grows, so do the tares. The tares grow in MALIGNITY AND EVIL. 2 Ti. 3:13.
Once the tares are planted they eventually emerge as EVIL fruit: Mt. 7:17:
1. False teachers, heretics. 2 Peter 2:1-3; Titus 3:10.
2. False prophets; Mt. 7:15;Mt. 24:11; 2 Peter 2:1-2; Rev. 16:13-15.
3. False Christs; Mt. 24: 24-26;Mark 13:21-23; 2Thess. 2:1-12.
4. False apostles, 2 Cor. 11:13-15.
5. False ministers, 2 Cor. 11:15.
6. False brethren 2 Cor. 11:26; Gal. 2:4-5.
7. False science 1 Ti. 6:20. Includes those who attempt to subvert the scriptures via comingling them with various forms of the mind sciences; and also those who invent "sciences" that challenges the inerrancy of the HOLY Bible.
8. Mockers of God, and promoters of heresies, and the doctrines of devils. 1Ti. 4: 1-2.
9.Murders, slanderers, and persecuters of the righteous.
That's right dear saints (G40 hagios), sitting right there in a church near you, and even in your own, as well as among other places are tares. They hate God and they hate every single child of God. Throwing them an ice cream social, passing out water to them on a hot day, etc., will not make them love you, or turn to God. If they reject God, they certainly will reject His people as well.
There are some who foolishly minimize, excuse and or ignore the emergence and evil activities of the tares, allowing them to go unchecked, rampaging, and ravishing in the church. This negligence allows them to even kill some and make many suffer in the church, allowing damage to the body as a whole, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Beloveds, let us continue to look at the children of the devil and what they share with their father the devil:
6. The children of the devil, the devil and all that serve him, will be destroyed forever in the lake of fire. They shall be tormented with fire and brimstone for all eternity. This is the second death prepared for all and every enemy of God.
Now some deny that the lake of fire is real fire, and say those in it will not be burned with actual fire, but simply that they will be "terribly sorry", because their consciences will be tormented due to passing up the opportunity to believe in Jesus and go to heaven.
However, this is a lie for God says in His word that they have NO consciences: 1 Ti. 4:1-2; Titus 1:15-16. These tares have permanently lost any sense of shame, decency or remorse, having chosen to consistently practice evil to such depths, that they eternally can no longer feel any remorse in doing evil; nor do they want to feel any such remorse or repentance from their evil. So brother or sister., please, PLEASE, give up any notion that you or anyone else can shame a tare into doing right, IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
Regarding fire, the scriptures uses the verb (G 2545) kahyo, (Rev. 21:8) meaning burneth, i.e. to set on fire, kindle, or by implication consume:-burn, light, to describe the action of the fire in the lake of fire. It is a real fire, and it will really and truly eternally burn up the devil and his followers forever and ever in everlasting torment. Rev. 14:11.
Please feel free to use anything here that will bring glory to God and be of help to the holy brethren, but not to make money off of. That which is freely received must be freely given.
No one is EVER permitted to use ANY of the copyrighted materials here to comingle with any writings that pervert the Gospel of Jesus Christ; denies the eternal efficacy of Jesus' Redemptive blood; or slanders the eternal Salvation and keeping power of God's people through the Holy Spirit.

As we continue with this study it might seem to some like a harsh study. Nevertheless we must represent the realities of the Gospel, regardless of anyone’s emotional sentiment, Personal opinions, or even personal discomfort or squeamishness. None of these are the standard- Let us not tire in this matter of understanding, living and believing that -God has set the standard- and it is God Alone. The standard He has set is eternal, absolute truth; without the possibility of ANY error whatsoever. His standard is written in His word correctly understood and lived.
I fervently continue to say in this study, beloveds, there is Absolutely NO mixing of tares and wheat. Stand strong saints (G40 hagios), in your identity given to you by the Precious Blood of Christ. The saints (G40 Hagios) are saints; born again; new creations in Christ Jesus, NOT sinners.
Allow no man, woman, institution, religious guru, false teacher etc. to number you with the wicked. Gird up the loins of your minds saints (G40 hagios), for God has given you and every saint (G40 hagios) THE MIND OF CHRIST: 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath know the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Cor. 2:15-16. (See this whole chapter).
Again, let us keep in mind, dearly beloveds that God, has not comingled you nor any saint (G40hagios) with these tares. They are completely separate from God and His people. Nevertheless the ungodly tares exist side by side in the world and with the true church on earth.
1 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Eph. 5:11-12. See 1 Cor. 5: 9-13.

Children of the day and of the light, after having looked at the devil, let us look further at his kids. Let us see and understand what they are called, and what they share with their father the devil, according to the Bible.
They are found throughout the scriptures and called by various names: children of the evil one; cursed children; children of disobedience; Eph. 2:2; children of disobedience; the wicked; dogs; swine; brute beasts; evil workers, etc.Phil. 3:2.
Wicked means (G4190 ponayros-hurtful, i.e. evil (properly in effect or influence, calamitous; also (passive) ill, i.e. diseased; but especially (morally) culpable, i.e. derelict, vicious, facinorous, michief, malice, or guilt; masculine (singular) the devil or (plural) sinners:-bad, evil, grievous, harm, lewd, wicked(-ness). See also G4191(poneroteros).
Again, and I say again, saints (G40 hagios), we are ONLY speaking of the tares here for God NEVER says His wrath is directed to His people: See 1Th. 1:10; Col. 1:13 . Only of the wicked who reject and refuse to believe on Jesus does God sayJn. 12:48.
According to the Bible the tares are:
1. Cursed and damned children- 2peter 2:14; 2Thes.2:11-12;Mk. 16:16; Mt. 25:41.
2. Their goal is to carry out the devil's will.John 8:42-47.
3. The devil plants them secretly amongst the saints (G40 hagios). Mt. 13:25
4. They hate God and His people, Ro. 1:30. (see this whole chapter)
5. They are destitute of love (agape)-1 Jn. 3:10; 4:8.
Brothers and sisters it is vital to understand that tares will not accept the Gospel. The problem is NOT with the Gospel. The problem is that tares choose not to hear the Gospel because they are absolutely NOT of God. See John 8:47.

Praise God! New Hampshire has defunded planned parenthood of its 1,800,000 budget. It now joins these other states that have done so in these amounts:
This comes to a whopping total of $60,399,000
These funds should be given to help support and help women keep their children, not murder them.
Planned parenthood is a world promoter of murder of children in the womb. They are an agent in enabling the sex slavery of young girls and women, by providing birth control services to girls and women forced by their captors into the sex slave industry.
Planned parenthood claims that those states who have defunded them leave no place for women to go for birth control. Most of these states are already providing these services, at far less cost, and do the same things as planned parenthood, except abortions.
The unspoken toll on America is that our population is declining, with a sharp reduction in laborers etc.. Some American farmers have few laborer to bring in their crops of fruit and grain, especially since the use of illegal well below minimum wage laborers is being curtailed. Complicating the problem is the lie that Americans will not do this menial work. This is not true-due to greed, some of these farmers do not want to pay a living wage, to the limited number of American workers available.
The fact that we have the working poor who must turn to food pantries is well documented. Many of these food pantries are not able to keep up with the demand for food and turning many away. The working poor should not be diminished and crushed any further into the dust, by allowing others to take any further advantage of them.
Abortion, has led to a shortage of skilled laborers as well.
Interestingly, many demographics now use the term population shifts as the cause of why some areas lose populations, and others gain. They do not like to note that areas that gain NO or slow growth in population is due to abortion. America's war on the unborn has been so great, and murdered so many babies, that it is predicted that the most children born, will be those of immigrant populations- who refuse to murder their children in the womb.
Holy brothers and sisters please continue to pray that those who carry out the death penalty of the helpless unborn children, and enablement of the sex slave industry will be brought to a halt. Call and write your legislators, let them know you are against tax payer dollars for the use of murdering children in the womb. Tell them to abolish the death penalty for unborn children, just because they are unwanted. Stand up, Children of the living God, for those who are unable to defend themselves. And as always, let us act within the law, remembering that with God all things are possible.
Pray for constitutional amendments at every level to define a human being as any person in the womb, and those who are born outside of the womb. Pray that the conscience of our leaders will be pricked to the core-to stand against child murder in the womb.
Pray that the hearts of the parents will turn toward their children and let them live. Pray for the childless, and others who are willing to help these unborn children to live.
Pray that our Lord Jesus, will end this satanic war against unborn children.
(Please note the study of the tares will continue next time)

Children of light, please if you have not already done so get your Bibles out and study along with me, for this and no study is to be a passive one. God will speak, teach and inform our minds and hearts as we search out His word to understand, believe and live it.
Yes, I repeat yet again, the Bible says that the wheat and the tares are absolutely not mixed, but eternally separated. There is absolutely no darkness in the saints (G40hagios), in God. 1Thess. 5:5; 1Jn. 1:5.
There are some who feel that "tares just do not know any better, so we should excuse them". God, who cannot lie, and is absolute truth tells us differently: see Ro. 1:20. (see this whole chapter).
Now there are some who rest on mere sentimentality, and see tares as just "somebody that we can convince in time that God is real, and then their hearts will just melt and then they will accept God".
But no, none of this is true. It is best to ALWAYS take God at His word , for He says: 1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (kjv).
The Greek word for "obey not" is G544 apitheho- to disbelieve ( willfully and perversely)-not believe, disobedient, obey not, unbelieving. Therefore God confirms His word, by His word-the tares do not want to believe by their own choice, by their own decision to reject God. We know their end for God has told us the answer to the question in 1 peter 4:17, all throughout the scriptures absolutely and consistently.
God is willing to save all men. The reason why some men ( or women) do not get saved is because they willingly, perversely, permanently choose to not believe therefore rejecting God, nor will they hear the Gospel. Yet we must still preach the Gospel, even with the understanding that some will refuse to hear it and reject it.

Brothers and sisters, we must trust and depend on God's word correctly understood and lived, and never tire of reminding ourselves and others of this always. We must not fail to understand or underestimate the seriousness of God's word, and the lesson of the tares. God has no inbetweeners whatsoever, can we grasp this? The danger of refusing to accept this is that some studies on the parable of the tares degenerate into bizarre wackiness, confusion, and a blending of the wheat with the tares.
The whole context of the scriptures absolutely forbids such madness. The scriptures in its entirety, maintains a complete and absolute division between good and evil; dark and light; the saved and those who consistently, relentlessly reject God. Some might think it is too harsh to think that there are those who are evil because they refuse to believe in God.
However, as I have said here repeatedly saints (G40 hagios), it is God that has set the eternal, unchanging and complete standard for all time for all men; AND IT IS GOD ALONE. Those who refuse to accept God's word, risk putting themselves and others in danger on many levels. This cannot be psychologized i.e. these tares are just in need of counseling to straightened them out. It cannot be seen on a sociological level that the whole of society is just degenerating. No, the word of God is clear that we are either for or against Him. We either accept all of Him or none of Him.
Our Lord has much to tell us specifically, and generally about the tares, which are also called by other names throughout the scriptures.
