If you have any un-crucified flesh you are a potential tare and therefore unqualified to pick out other tares. When you stamp someone with a negative label you are effectively calling them a tare. Calling a brother or sister, a liar, nonspiritual or rebellious, is a tare label. For example: A lie comes in many forms it is also a half truth, or an exaggeration, do you lie. Nonspiritual is determined only by the Holy Spirit. Rebellion is never an absolute until the heart is fully revealed.
Unless you are walking in the Spirit all the times, you have no idea who the tares are or what they look like. Some churches are trying to pluck up seeker friendly churches. Some are trying to pluck up prophetic churches, others are trying to pluck up charismatic churches. Church leaders are labeling members who disagree with them, as tares. Members are labeling leaders who correct them, as tares. I made it very plain: “Let both the wheat and tares, grow together until the harvest: lest while you gather up the tares, you root up also the wheat with them, and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn,” Matthew 13:29-30.
“He that is not against Me is on My side,” Mark 9:40. Stop fighting against My work in the world and concentrate on your mission. The forces of hell love when you attempt pluck up tares, because you are making their work easy. Wheat is being destroyed on every hand. I have never called anyone to be a labeler!
In the kingdom, ALL criticism, labeling and negative remarks directed toward other believers must stop before revival can come. Many feel they have the liberty to speak against members in other churches except the church they belong too. There is no such thing a church, only the church! In My kingdom it’s not a body but the body!
If one pastor speaks bad of another, he is labeling him as a tare. If you want to see revival break out in your area? Focus on your calling and leave the tares to Me an My angels.
