Question: Between Matthew:13:30 and Revelation:14:14-19 there seems to be a conflict as to which will be harvested first--the weeds or the crops. Matthew:13:30 says it is the tares, while the passage in Revelation seems to say something else. Which is it?
Response: As to whether the weeds will be harvested prior to the crops (Mt 13:30 vs. Rv 14:14-19), we would suggest that in the full context of Revelation 14 it is the weeds that are indicated here as well. For example, verse 19 tells us that the objects of this "harvest" are "cast into the great winepress of the wrath of God." This clearly cannot be the main crop (i.e., true believers). May the Lord encourage us with the consistency of His Word.
