"Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to send peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law" (Matthew 10:34-35).
In another place He said this:
"But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He shall sit on the throne of His glory. And all nations shall be gathered before Him. And He shall separate them from one another, as a shepherd divides the sheep from the goats" (Matthew 25:31-32).
And the Lord said:
"Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather you together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn" (Matthew 13:30).
We are sent by Him to speak so that the wheat will be separated from the tares. Those who are the Lord's will hear His voice, and will come out from them. The tares are bundled together to go into the fire. Your reaction shows not only what you are, but also where you are. You speak and act in the unity of the tares, which God has ordained for purging. Are you not burning even now as you read this?
"Know you not that we shall judge angels? How much more things that pertain to this life?" (1 Corinthians 6:3)
"Do not judge according to sight, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24).
"Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honor have all His saints. Praise ye the LORD" (Psalms 149:5-9).
"It is enough for the disciple that he is like his Master, and the servant like his Lord. If they have called the Master of the house Beelzebub, how much more those of His household?" (Matthew 10:25)
"They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time comes, that whosoever kills you will think that he does God service" (John 16:2).
I am wheat. What are you?
P.S. I also see myself as a worker and reaper in gathering the tares.
