1. CRISIS OF CHAFF is brewing as the Lord gathers, first, the TARES, saying to His angels: “… GATHER YE TOGETHER FIRST THE TARES, and BIND THEM IN BUNDLES to BURN THEM: but GATHER THE WHEAT into my barn” [Matthew 13:30] TARES are the children of the WICKED ONE and their roots are fastened to the earth. The earth is SHAKEN as TARES are uprooted, like a woman in travail. There is palpable DISTRESS and “MEN’S HEARTS FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth …” [Luke 21:26] Beloved, God is not helpless to stem the overflowing tide of pandemics, terrorism, economic downturn, social disorder, etc., but with TRIBULATION shall He “… GATHER THE WHEAT into his garner; but the CHAFF HE WILL BURN with fire unquenchable:” [Luke 3:17 & Acts 14:22] As a pregnant woman breaks WATER in PAINS and in SORROW lets out BLOOD, before the BABY comes, so shall the Church, in PAINS, be PURGED of TARES and CHAFF to make manifest the SONS of God.
2. CRISIS OF CHAFF follows the merging of TARES with false religions in ECUMENISM. TARES have no heavenly relationship with WHEAT, and of such is “… SIMON, WHICH BEFORETIME IN THE SAME CITY USED SORCERY, and bewitched the people of Samaria, … To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, SAYING, THIS MAN IS THE GREAT POWER OF GOD” [Acts 8:9-10] TARES have a FORM OF GODLINESS, but not the POWER of God that resounds to EVERLASTING LIFE [2 Timothy 3:5] Global campaign to bring all BELIEFS under one umbrella sounds good, but in reality signify the GATHERING and BUNDLING of TARES howbeit the WHEAT is preserved, as it is written: “… 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” [Matthew 13:28-29] TARES are caught in the tailwind of prophecy and FALL AWAY, as the Bible says: “THEY WENT OUT FROM US, but THEY WERE NOT OF US; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us…” [1 John 2:19] The HARVEST is ready, WHEAT shall be separated from CHAFF and the Lord shall present to Himself, “… A GLORIOUS CHURCH, NOT HAVING SPOT, OR WRINKLE, or any such thing; but that it should be HOLY AND WITHOUT BLEMISH” [Ephesians 5:27] The THRESHING INSTRUMENT is the WORD, CUTTING DEEP into every heart, to separate SHEEP from GOATS [Hebrews 4:12 & Hebrews 4:12]
3. CRISIS OF CHAFF is creeping on the Church, and “… time is come that JUDGMENT MUST BEGIN AT THE HOUSE OF GOD …” [1 Peter 4:17] The Elect are FOREKNOWN in God and PREDESTINATED to be “CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN” [Romans 8:29] We sucked the “SINCERE MILK OF THE WORD” and grew into STRONG MEAT, ”But STRONG MEAT BELONGETH TO THEM THAT ARE OF FULL AGE, even those who by reason of use have their SENSES EXERCISED TO DISCERN to discern both good and evil” [Hebrews 5:14] Whereas WHEAT are “FULL OF AGE”, mature and sealed in CONFORMITY with Jesus Christ, CHAFF are stuck on MILK, stunted and DRIED UP, as it is written: “For when for the time ye ought to be TEACHERS, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are BECOME SUCH AS HAVE NEED OF MILK,, AND NOT OF STRONG MEAT” [Hebrews 5:12] WHEAT turns to CHAFF when those who are supposed to be TEACHERS FEED on “SWEETENED MILK” and FEED others with the SWEETENED DIET of CRASS MATERIALISM and DOCTRINES OF DEVILS, “… SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS: from such withdraw thyself” [1 Timothy 6:5 & Hebrews 6:5-6] Beloved, take heed, that you are not deceived “For HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” [Galatians 6:8]
4. CRISIS OF CHAFF is the final chapter of the Church, when WHEAT shall be separated from CHAFF. Listen carefully, CHAFF is the portion of HARVEST DRIED UP by EXPOSURE to the elements. In like manner, when those “… WHO WERE ONCE ENLIGHTENED, and have TASTED OF THE HEAVENLY GIFT ..” embrace WORLDLINESS and EXPOSE the flocks to GOSPEL “SWEETENED” with WORLDLINESS, WHEAT turns to CHAFF. Brethren, if we LIVE as He did, DEAD to the FLESH, our WHEAT retains His REFRESHING GRACE, and brings FRUIT to everlasting life, for “… Except a corn of WHEAT FALL TO THE GROUND AND DIE, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit” [John 12:24] Those who are DEAD to FLESH do not “WATER” down the GOSPEL for GAIN or FRIENDSHIP with this world; “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? whosoever therefore will be a FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD” [James 4:4] If your WHEAT will not turn to CHAFF, deliver yourself from those who entice you with “SWEETENED” sermons of instant riches, “For when THEY SPEAK GREAT SWELLING WORDS OF VANITY, they allure through the LUSTS OF THE FLESH, through much wantonness, … ” [2 Peter 2:18] Beloved, hold on to the TRUTH, “… OUR SALVATION IS NEARER than when we believed”, and we shall be TRANSLATED to be with Christ forever [Romans 13:11]
5. Accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Saviour and bring FRUIT to everlasting life in Jesus name, amen
