Are you itching to know about the second coming of Jesus? Did you know Jesus taught his disciples about his return? This week, we’ll look at seven of those parables.
The first is a story about a farmer who plants seed in a field. An enemy planted weeds. At the harvest, the weeds are separated from the good crop and burned. Jesus explained the story describing his return in Matthew 13:37-43, ‘He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where 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.’” (NIV 1984)
In other words, God’s people and the wicked exist together until angels gather the wicked and throw them in the fire. Christians are glorified with the father. Pretty simple, isn’t it?
