Tares Among The Wheat! by Bodydialect57: 10:26pm On Jan 19
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 [b]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.
Matthew 13:24-30

[/b]


The Lord Jesus Christ clearly pointed out in the above scriptures to let the tares and the wheat grow together because an attempt to pull out the tares could damage the wheat.
The harmful effects the tares/weeds have on the real plant could be overwhelming if not timely controlled.

Aside mistaken identity by inexperienced gardeners/farmers that could lead to its (wheat) being uprooted, weeds/tares reduce farm productivity, invade crops, and aggressively compete for water, nutrients and sunlight, resulting in reduced crop yield and poor crop quality.

In the face of those apparent dangers posed by the tares/weeds, why the coexistence till maturity?
Will the wheat survive the growing together?

How can a christian survive, as in, live an effective christian life in the midst of overwhelming mixed multitude?

It it impossible by one's own effort to overcome these things... a reason why the Lord JESUS CHRIST said many things indicating that GOD alone can truly save (Matthew 19:23-26), and none that GOD saves will be lost ("All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out." - John 6:37) , and GOD Himself will teach all of His own (John 6:45).

GOD is reverently referred to as the Husbandman in the Bible (John 15:1, James 5:7) - which by definition is "a person who cultivates the land; a farmer."

GOD who is perfect (Psalm 18:30, Matthew 5:48), and thus the perfect Husbandman will not, according to his Word, allow any of His wheat to be lost as He has the power to monitor, correct (Psalm 73:13-15, Proverbs 3:11, Hebrews 12:5-7), nourish (1 Corinthians 3:6), and reap/gather them.

"For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith." - Romans 1:17

Yes, the field is the world. The wheat, the good seed are the children of the Kingdom and the tares are the children of the devil.

How does the wheat survive the overbearing influence of the tares since its known to tower high above the wheat?

Thank you for your invitation sir/ma. It's a good question you've asked there. We will need to first understand the will of God in Christ to satisfy your inquiry. Man was designed chiefly to relate with God from within Him ultimately(Col 1:27,1Jn4:4, Jer31:33-34). But this being a very artful and skilful capacity was subjected first to learn under tutors, that is the law of God, both in scripture and in nature(Gal3:24), then when fully mastered in these, to proceed to learn about God from within, all attainable here on earth. We are by default satisfied and prone to manage an external relationship with God from maybe just bible study, fellowship with brothers, listening to teachings, which are all good in their proper place, if serving to lead us into Gods ultimate will(stated above) but otherwise unsatisfactory to God. So in order to depend on Christ within us, we will have to be put under pressure to somehow be forced to.
This brings us to your question, the purpose of the tares. The tares, the seed of Satan, by nature promoting sin, evil and injustice will frustrate the good desires in the believer for righteousness, even suffocating them, adding fuel to the fire of fleshly tendencies mounted against the spirit nature inside the believer. They will fill the outside world with all evil hence awakening inside the believer fleshly essences yet to be dealt with and forcing him to turn to the greater One within Him for help in true prayer(1Jn4:4) for overcoming grace hence Rom5:20 plays out. Had the tares been plucked before then, the believer would still have lodged within him, a lot of unexposed fleshly lusts and tendencies thereby not aware to deal with the subtle, well-hidden fleshly tendencies, so remaining in this duality of contrasting tendencies and prolonging the war between flesh and spirit(Gal5:17) and not reaching his highest spiritual development in God/holiest faith (Jud:20). In this state he stays unprepared for the coming of the Lord, which requires spirit nature perfectly annihilating flesh resulting in stainless righteousness(Eph5:27). This is an eternal loss to the believer, preventing him attaining God's best on earth and eternity.
Picture the fact that the wheat competing for survival against the tares in the field will have to pull on every fibre within them making them stronger and more developed. A miniature example is found in cases like in M/E Islamic nations where Christian fellowships and access to bibles are prohibited. Notice that the believers in those settings are always greater in spirituality than we in less tense regions, because they've been forced to turn inwards to the greater One within them, practicalizing Rom12:21. Also imagine having an obnoxious partner at work, who is so annoying and always provoking you to anger, making it difficult to love as Christ prescribed or forgive when necessary(Mt5:44, Col3:13). His character will help you see the hidden anger and unchristlike resistance still dwelling within you which upon such exposure can then be brought before the throne of grace for elimination(Heb4:16).
So the tares will grow until the King Tare(the antichrist) shows up with a government of maximum sin promotion and injustice of tribulation against believers, before the Lord's return. Of course the believer mustn't wait for the Beast, he can begin to learn Christ within by true prayer, not the religious kind done in most centres today, but a true kind focused on finding Christ within Him, helped by the Holy Spirit, in stillness(not noise) practised in patient perseverance as well as bearing his cross, the fiery trials God allows Satan bring in his life, still towards learning to depend on Christ within. He must also be careful to distinguish his God-given cross from Satan's unchecked wickedness against all good, lest he suffer unnecessarily.
Feel free to ask questions.

God bless you too sir/ma (please help me identify which). I forgot to add Gal3:24 to my initial post but I've done so. In addition, in Lk 17:20-21, the Lord teaches that His plan is to first bring about the kingdom of God inside us before it manifests outside us. Also God wants to clean us from within through our discovering Christ within us(Mt 23:25-26, Lk11:39-40), hence He was not satisfied to relate with us one on one from outside as Jesus Christ but died just so He can gain access to our inside.
Have you ever heard the saying 'let sleeping dogs lie'. By default human nature, we really don't observe to see our many evil tendencies or often make excuses for them, hence letting sleeping dogs lie. If there's a war between flesh and spirit going on inside us, this will favour the flesh. Because, it survives in secrecy but only when its exposed, is there a possibility of the life of spirit swallowing up the death in our flesh. This is also why God gave the law (Rom 7:12-13). In addition to the law, being put in an environment of tares(pressure) makes us discover our own lusts that still dwell in us, hence (Jn17:15), not so we can accept them, but so we can identify them and pray for grace to eliminate them from inside us, preparing us for Lord's coming(1Jn3:2-3). So now you know why some, who do not prepare themselves on time must pass through the great tribulation(pressure in Greek) before the Lord's return. But we can prepare ourselves as the wise virgins on time by winning this war over the flesh on time.
About seeking Christ within, this is an art that must be learnt but too much to share such on a public forum. However, if you just begin to identify and bring each and every inner weakness before God for grace to overcome, you have at least begun your journey. (Is 1:18, 1Jn 1:8-9).

Good. There's some maturity needed for that, but before you develop that just start by simply determining to not accept any evil that comes your way by praying it through with God. God may act sooner or later. But make sure you only act on what God CLEARLY says to you(not assumption or men's words), because demons in their craftiness will like to make you believe their device is God's will for your life so that you don't resist them.

I remember Dr. Panam Percy Paul's "Don't Give Up"

You have been so strong
You cannot be wrong
Cos in the past, you have overcome
On your face, there is a light, that shows you are a winner
You are a gem in this life; your glory will soon unfold
You cannot afford to faint in the face of many trials
It is time to stand and overcome again
Chorus: (x2)
Don’t give up, Its not over
When you give up, Then its over
Hold-on to the Lord, and Trouble not your heart
Even when you fail, It’s not over

There is no obstacle, that you cannot overcome
You are strong and able to stand
Even though there be fire, it will make you pure as gold
Even though there be rivers, I know you can build a bridge
You cannot afford to faint in the face of these trials
It is time to stand and overcome again

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.
