kjv@Matthew:13:24@ Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
kjv@Matthew:13:25@ But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
kjv@Matthew:13:26@ But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
kjv@Matthew:13:27@ 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?
kjv@Matthew:13:28@ He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
kjv@Matthew:13:29@ But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
kjv@Matthew:13:30@ 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.
This parable is to be placed beside the parable of the sower for direct comparison, one extends the other. The first is a look at the process of the individual believer and what he must overcome. The second is a picture of the field (world) of all. The enemy has come in and planted a false believer with every appearance of the true believer except in final fruit. To remove the false believer at this time would also uproot the true believer, so the two are left to grow together. Both parables work together to draw a broader and deeper picture. The Disciples will shortly ask Jesus to explain this further.
This is not to say that the Devil has created his own humans and planted them amongst God's. This is better explained by whom the God created human becomes moral agent of/to. The Kingdom of Heaven becomes firmly planted into one and the false kingdom of heaven becomes established in the other. The differences nearly indistinguishable until the fruit from each is bore out.
