MATTHEW 13:24 “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.”
God’s Kingdom is Reflected on Earth 
God Establishes Good 
God is the Owner

MATTHEW 13:25-28 “His enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.  But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.  So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field?

God’s Enemy Sows Evil “His Enemy”
2 Corinthians 2:11 “To keep Satan from getting the advantage over us; for we are not ignorant of his wiles and intentions.” (AMPC)

The Enemy Exchange Truth for a Lie
Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

MATTHEW 13:28-30 “[The] servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.  Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” 

God is not surprised by evil, neither should you  
God is not Alarmed, neither should you
