The Parables of the Weeds, Seed, and Yeast (2)

Pr.Keith Parmelee
[Worldwide Outreach Teaching School]
10/25/2006


Any way; Habakkuk’s book starts off by declaring, and I am reading from the Message version:
2 GOD, how long do I have to cry out for help before you listen? How many times do I have to yell, "Help! Murder! Police!" before you come to the rescue? 3 Why do you force me to look at evil, stare trouble in the face day after day? Anarchy and violence break out, quarrels and fights all over the place. 4 Law and order fall to pieces. Justice is a joke. The wicked have the righteous hamstrung* and stand justice on its head.

Habakkuk is saying what generations continue to say: “God look at the condition of the world, especially the people of the world. Fix it!”

God doesn’t need me to point out the condition of the world. He is fully aware of what is going on and it breaks His heart.

Jesus is telling those hearing these parables, to trust in God’s timing of everything.
God has everything perfectly planned out.

God knows just when to act.

Paul says about Jesus coming to the earth: You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.

God knows when everything must be done.

Trans: But Jesus is also trying to help us realize that …
Human society is a mixture* of evil and righteousness
Jesus is telling his hearers* and us that within God’s plan and timeframe, this is not the time for judgment; this is the time for growth.
This is the time to grow the kingdom.

Verse 30 says; “Let both grow together until the harvest.”

The servants of the owner of the field discovered that weeds had made their way into their master’s perfectly planted field.
They wanted to remove the weeds, to not allow them to damage the wheat. Get them out now before the crop is ruined!

They said “Do you want us to go and pull them up?”

They were ready to do the work.

The solution was not in the immediate separating of the two.
Instead, for the time being the two were allowed to grow together, so that the field was not an ideal field but one manifesting* the contradiction of good and bad.

Sounds like our world today.

Wouldn’t it be nice that if once God discovered that a person was a weed He would have that weed plucked?
The problem is how many of us would be left if He did that.

The truth is that all of us have at one time been a weed.

And this world is in the same condition that this man’s field is in.

In our world today, all around us are people that choose to live their lives as godly, righteous people and others that choose to do evil.

And the thing that discourages many who try to live rightly; the ones that do evil seem to be the ones that prosper.
