ARE YOU WHEAT OR TARE?

Matthew 13:24–30 KJV 1900
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which 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 blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So 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? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Introduction: A church is like a seed you plant it and watch it grow. The problem is no matter how much effort you put in planting the seed, there’s alway a weed that grow in with your plant. This is what scares me, no matter how good you start off. Satan seems to always throw some weeds in the mix. Using this parable of Jesus Christ. I want to show you how Satan sews tares among the wheat.
They are normally not your drinking, smoking, cussing church member. A tare is sometimes your best church member. The problem is that you can’t recognize them from the wheat.
A tare will look like wheat, they are normally not your drinking, smoking, cussing church member. A tare is sometimes your best church member. The problem is that you can’t recognize them from the wheat.
Our Baptist Churches are full of tares! The Lord has used this sermon all over the country to help church members to examine themselves to see whether they are wheat or tare, whether they have been born again or just a Church member on there way to Hell.
THEY ARE SOWN TOGETHER.
: 24-25
Matthew 13:24–25 KJV 1900
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
mATTHEW 13
a. Two people walk down the aisle.
b. Both get baptized.
c. One was baptized because he was saved and the other only became a church member.
d. Satan’s greatest work is not the prostitute, not the dope addict,or the drunk.
e. His goal is to deceive as many as he can into thinking they are saved when they are not.
f. So I ask you, “are you wheat or are you a tare?”
g. You say, “I am a church member.” I didn’t ask you that.
h. A Church like Friendship Baptist, where truth is preached is where Satan does his greatest work.
1). If he can keep a born again believer from spreading the Gospel he wins.
2). If he can show that if you are a born again Christian and there is no change in your life he wins.
3). If a born again Christian is stale he wins.
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV 1900
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians
i. Have you been born again?

ii. It does not matter that you have been baptized.
i. It does not matter that you have been baptized.

iii. it doesn’t matter what church you belong too.
iv. You can’t work and earn it.
v. You can’t buy it.
vi. You have to be born again!
John 14:6 KJV 1900
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
: 6
vii. You have to accept the Lord Jesus Christ!
2. THEY ARE GROWN TOGETHER
Matthew 13:26–29 KJV 1900
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So 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? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
: 26-29
a. They go to the same Sunday School Class.
b. They sing the same hymnals.
c. They go on visitation together.
d. Both say their prayers.
e. No one suspects them-they are together.
f. That person could be sitting next to you-are they wheat or tare?
g. A tare looks like wheat, teaches the Bible like wheat, sings like wheat, prays like wheat, and talks like wheat.
The saying, “walk the walk, talk the talk.”
Is not accurate when it comes to eternity.
It depends on your personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Remember Judas, He walk with Jesus, and betrayed Him.
h. No one suspects them, but they have never been born again.
Matthew 13:28–29 KJV 1900

a. At harvest time- They will be found out.
b. Hey, You may fool this Pastor, and other Born Again Christian’s.
c. One day you will stand before God, you will be found out by everybody.
