I don't remember where the post was for this article so I am pasting it here, it is worth reading , honest
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man
which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares
among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth
fruit, then appeared the tares also. 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? He said unto
them, An enemy hath done this. The servant said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 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.
We have always been taught that the wheat was the good folks-- those who went in an alter call, those who had received Jesus-- and the tare was the unbeliever, the sinner, and the reprobate. However, the good seed and tare was sown in the same field.
He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angles. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The son of man shall send forth his angels, and shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which so iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matt. 13:37-42 )
Jesus said that a man went and sowed good seed in his field. The field represents the ground, and we know that man was formed from the dust of the ground. The good seed that was sown in the ground was the children of the Kingdom, the seed of God, the spirit of man. And while men slept, the enemy came and sowed the tare. The tare that enemy sowed was the carnal man, the carnal mentality, the carnal mind, and the carnal thinking. The tare is the false identity that you received by coming into the physical realm. The tare is the seed of the serpent.
You are a spiritual being on a human journey; but because of "the fall," you awoke in this physical realm not knowing where you came from, not knowing who you were or what your destiny was. Although the Lord sowed good seed in the field (in your earth, in your ground), while you slept in this death state, the enemy came and sowed the tare of the carnal mind, the human personality. And so, all your life, you were raised by your parents and teachers to think of yourself as something that was separate from God. In reality, you could never be separate from God because you were created from His substance. You are only separated in your darkened mind and understanding. This is why you need to be regenerated. You came out of God and are returning to God. You were totally lost to your true identity through physical birth, and you were then told by religion that, to gain access to God, you must perform a certain way to gain His favor so that you can go to heaven when you die.
The truth is that religion is also the tare. The tare looks just like the wheat while it is growing. Religious leaders want to control you and keep you in subjection to them. Believe me, religion is all about control. It comes in many forms. It sounds so good and right. They say, "You need a covering over you, and we are that covering. You must look to us because we are the bishops (or the pastors or the prophets), and we can hear God; but you are just a child and must look to us, your covering. We know what is best for you." When you accept this kind of mentality, you come into religious Bondage.
Whenever you subject yourself to anyone`s control, you have just put yourself into prison. You will stay there as long as you refuse to take the time to discover God within you, like Luke 17:21. When you discover God within you and you learn to trust Him, He becomes your teacher. Anytime anyone points you to anyone but Jesus as your example, you need to RUN from that person. They will control you by telling you what to read and/or not to read, who to listen to or turn away from. After all, they say, "We are the watchman on the wall, and we must tell you what to do. We must warn you about so and so." They usurp the Holy Spirit's control over you, and many let them do so. Jesus said, "When He the Spirit of truth is come, HE will guide you in ALL truth." Many are afraid of the truth because they have submitted themselves to man's control; and when the Spirit begins to reveal truth to them, their religious leaders tell them it is deception. NEVER let a man or woman control you. I am not telling you that you should not ever take advice from another person, but you should never let another person exercise control over you and tell you what you must do. For instance, many say you must be in a traditional church setting to really please God. Some are even saying today that we need to go back to all the religious rituals with robes and candles. If you feel that this is what the Spirit would have you do, then by all means do so; but do not let man convince you that you must do this to gain godliness in your life. The truth is that, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." (Matt. 18:20) We should not forsake the assembling of ourselves together for fellowship, but it does not have to be in a traditional setting. I do not mean by this that we should not have churches. I wish we had more of them teaching the principles of the Kingdom.
Many people like this bondage because they are too lazy to shake themselves and wake up to the truth. Also, religion causes you to fear your true identity. "How could you, a mortal man, make yourself as God ?" they will say. This is what they said to Jesus, and this is what they will say to you when you begin to wake up to your true nature and identity. So many people have struggled all their life with the carnal mentality, trying to make themselves godly, not knowing that they are fast in a mistaken identity. That mistaken identity will never be God. The mistaken identity is the abomination of desolation that sits in the temple, [in Humans ], of God, ruling as a carnal man instead of submitting to the spiritual man. The answer to the sin problem is to discover that you are a spiritual being and that you have the life, the nature, and the character of God. We are His offspring, His children. How could we be anything less than what He is in His nature ?
Well, that is why God is saying today. "I will take you back to where you were in Me before the fall of man. I'll restore your soul."
And that is where the problem is, because the carnal mind abides in the soulish realm--in our mind, our will, and our emotions. The scriptures tell us that the natural man---the carnal mind---cannot receive the things of God. It is absolutely impossible! That is why we have such a mass in the world today-- because carnal men have been trying to figure this out for years. " My God, what do we need to do to get God to show up ? What do we need to do to bring some unity into the church ?" Men with carnal minds---good men---have devised hundreds and thousands of different kinds of religions and practices and ways and means and methods to be godly and to be filled with the Spirit and to be healed and to be prosperous and so many other things. There are thousands of methods and teachings, and all they do is stir up our carnal mentality and keep us in that realm where we are trying to take a carnal consciousness and make it godly.
Imagine, if you will, waking up one morning to your true identity. You realize as the scripture says, "As He is, so are we in this world" ( 1 John 4:17 ) Imagine what you would be like with this realization. I remember reading Madam Guyon's autobiography. She had many years of tribulation and much suffering, spending a lot of time in prison locked up by the church of her day for her faith. But after years of suffering, she said, " I woke up one morning, and my soul had become like the New Jerusalem." She woke up one morning in God's likeness and image. And from that time, miraculous things began to happen in her ministry. That is what has to happen to all of us. We must WAKE UP to our true selves and put on the mind of Christ and begin to reconcile all of creation back to God. This is why I have repeatedly said that, all across the world, in all religions, in all nationalities, in all cultures, the Spirit of the living God is beginning to stir in the hearts of men and women everywhere. We must realize the true nature of every person is that they are a spiritual being. The majority of them have lost their true identity and the realization of why they came to this earth.
In the parable of the sower, it is said, "Let Both grow together," but at the end of the age, God's
angels will come and separate the wheat from the tares. That is what is happening NOW. But before the wheat and the tare can be separated within you---before God can remove the tare of your human identity---you have to have some understanding and some revelation to be able to go through what you have to go through to have that tare removed. That is part of the reason why there is so much discouragement today among God's people. They are going through some horrible fires of tribulation to remove the tare of human reasoning and religious and worldly thinking. We are at the end of an age, and the dawning of a new age. God will arise within a people on the earth that are going to shine with the glory and the manifestation of God such as has never been seen before. This is the beginning stage NOW.
I wish that people everywhere could see what I see. I don't experience a lot of it yet, but God is removing the veil from my eyes. You need to understand that you are a spiritual person—you are not a carnal human being. You may be carnal, and you may be a failure in your experience. All of us, more or less, are failures in one way or another in the carnal realm; but you need to realize that is not who you really are. You are a spiritual being; and in the very core, the very center of your being, you are a new creation man and woman in you have been regenerated.
We know that the temple represents the human body (Body—Outer Court, Soul---Holy Place,
Spirit---Holy of Holies).
So, rather than have this concept that you are in the bodily realm, or that you are in the Pentecostal realm trying to enter into the Holy Place , you need to have your eyes unveiled to realize that you are a spiritual being. Your spirit abides in the presence of Almighty God. When you begin to minister from that realm, you will experience the renewing of your soul. "I'll take you back to where you were in Me before the fall of man." These are your roots in Genesis 1. "I'll restore your soul." When your soul is restored, you begin to manifest as a son or daughter of God.
In another song, Linda wrote, "God's seed is in all humanity. You may not see it, but it's there. Within us there lies a great mystery," There are two great mysteries in the earth today--- the mystery of godliness(God taking on human flesh) and the mystery of iniquity. Many people think the antichrist is a person who is going to be an incarnation of satin and will one day rule the world. However, antichrist is the tare that was sown in the field. The antichrist is the human personality, that carnalmindedness that was sown in your field of All Humans.
