The wheat and the tares did grow together, but this is the day of resurrection. I AM separating! I AM separating the wheat from the tares. I AM gathering the good wheat in the garner – – the chaff I AM leaving on the outside, and the chaff shall burn with fire unquenchable, but the tares shall be burned within the field, they shall not come to the barnyard. Now is not that wonderful?
We will not even gather the tares in the barnyard. The chaff we will gather with the wheat, and we will leave it on the outside of the corn-mill. But the tares we will not bring to the barnyard. Therefore, I will not gather the harvest of the tares. I will leave them in the field to burn, but the good wheat shall be gathered in the garner and the chaff shall be burned in the barnyard with fire unquenchable.
If you notice carefully the mystery of the wheat and the tares, and also the wheat and the chaff, the chaff must grow with the wheat – – it is essential. The farmer sowed the wheat, but he did not sow the tares. He also sowed the chaff while he sowed the wheat. The good wheat is gathered in the garner. The chaff must grow until the harvest, and in the harvest time the chaff will also be gathered with the wheat, but in the field the tares and the wheat will be separated.
One is actually destructive – – completely negative, while the other may be constructive in the beginning, but in the end it turns out to be negative. It is impractical, unprofitable and good for nothing, although in the time of the growing of the grain it was good for something, for it was the wheat’s protection until the day of harvest.
All of your fancies, pleasures and their tendencies were essential to be used until the day of harvest, when I would gather your human affections to gather into the barnyard and would sever them from the wheat and leave them just on the outside of the harvest, outside of the harvest, outside of the mill, don’t you know, which is the chaff, but the good wheat shall be kept for the master’s use. Now is not that a blessing?
Your human affections come so near the harvest, but GOD cannot harvest your human affections; they must be destroyed, for it is written, “Our GOD is a consuming fire, and He shall burn every base desire,” – – all of your low-down desires. Although they may be human, modest and mortal, constructive actions, thoughts and ideas and opinions, yet they will be destroyed in reality when the good wheat is gathered in the garner. Oh, it is a privilege to realize you must make a complete surrender, a complete self-denial to enter into this place in consciousness wherein you can enjoy the limitless blessings GOD has in storehouse for His children.
These blessings are flowing so free for each and every individual, but remember, you cannot come to your rightful inheritance, saving by making a complete surrender and relaxing your conscious mentality, and living no longer in the outer of the reality of the self-denied state of expression.
“He shall gather the good wheat in his garner.”
We are gathering the good wheat into the harvest, but the chaff we are leaving on the outside. Therefore, those of you that have not advanced to the place in consciousness where your souls actually desire something better than that which you have to give, why, I beseech you this morning to seek it, and try to place yourselves in the place where the Spirit of MY Presence can convince you it is better to receive something from above than to receive mental and spiritual food from beneath.
I listen to the different testimonies from time to time, and you talk and talk something that is not good for your own sake. Now is not that wonderful?
The thing you should do, in My version, would be to relax unless you have something that is inspiring, unless you have something that is worthwhile.
