came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of

that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;"
"The field is the world; the good
seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares 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

in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world." (Matthew
<1>It is the
of God who sow the good
seed which are the words revealed through them, "He that soweth the
good seed is the Son of man."
<2>The tares are sowed by the
false prophets and teachers -- whoever teaches that the goal of
the life is anything else than be(com)ing
Divine -- or "the
children of the wicked one" (devil,
tama guna). <3>But
at the end of this era, the
Angels (sons of
God) will gather the
children of the Kingdom to the
Those who have followed
Maya will be thrown to the
darkness, "burned in
the fire;" only later on, after they have gone through a long
struggle and many experiences, might they be saved also (second
"The Son of man shall send forth his
angels, and they shall
gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do
"And shall cast them into a furnace of fire:
there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:41-42)
<4>At that time, the sons of
will come and will separate the righteous from the unrighteous.
Those who have lagged behind will be sent back to the world, "into a
furnace of fire" to be purified through their experience (fire is a
"Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun
in the kingdom of their
Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear." (Matthew 13:43)
<5>That is when the righteous or those who
have purified themselves, will reach
Pure Consciousness, "Shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of
who have opened their spiritual eyes will understand the truth of
"Again, the kingdom of
is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath
found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he
hath, and buyeth that field." (Matthew 13:44)
<7>When a man realizes
God, sees His Power, Peace,
Beauty, Skills, etc, and realizes that only He is true and all other
things are temporary, it would be like an earthly person who finds a
great treasure in a field and sells all that he has in order to buy
that field and become the owner of that treasure. <8>So a
renounces all for Him.
"Again, the kingdom of
is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:"
"Who, when he had found one pearl of great price,
went and sold all that he had, and bought it." (Matthew 13:45-46)
<9>Those who have experienced the bliss of
being with the
Father will leave
everything for His sake. Then it is easily possible to overcome the
illusions of this external world (excess attraction, desires,
attachments, and greed).
"Again, the kingdom of
is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of
"Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and
sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad
away." (Matthew 13:47-48)
<10>Again at the end of this era, humanity
will be divided into those who have reached higher consciousness and
those who have lagged behind. This is the first
resurrection. <11>In the second
resurrection, the righteous will be saved. This is also
prophesied in the
Koran, "Before the
unavoidable Day which God
has designed to come, people will be sundered..." in Surah The
"So shall it be at the end of the world: the
angels shall come forth,
and sever the wicked among the just,"
"And shall cast them into the furnace of fire:
there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:49-50)
<12>Those who have lagged behind will be
thrown to the depth of
ignorance, "furnace of fire."
saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto
him, Yea, Lord."
"Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe
which is instructed unto the kingdom of
heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth
forth out of his treasure things new and old."
"And it came to pass, that when
Esa had finished these
parables, he departed thence."
"And when he was come into his own
country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were
astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these
"Is not this the carpenter's son?
is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses,
and Simon, and Judas?"
"And his sisters, are they not all with us?
Whence then hath this man all these things?" (Matthew 13:51-56)
<13>It is so hard for those who know a person
from childhood and his family, and also for the family members
themselves, to believe a person has acquired a wisdom from
God or has become His Prophet. <14>It is even very
difficult for many people to just accept another human being as a
Prophet. <15>Usually they ask, "Why him?" This becomes an
obstacle in their path and causes them to close themselves to the
truth he reveals. So they will be deprived of it because of their
"And they were offended in him. But
Esa said unto them, A
prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his
"And he did not many mighty works there because
of their unbelief." (Matthew 13:57-58)
<16>A Prophet or Savior is as powerful as the
belief of the people and as powerless as their doubts. That is
why he did not do too much for them.
