Psalm 81:16 (c) We may learn from this that those who hearken to the Lord and seek to obey His Word may expect to receive GOD's richest blessings that will make them strong, able and happy Christian servants. (See also Psalm 147:14).
Jeremiah 23:28 (a) The wheat in this case represents the Word of GOD, while the chaff represents the ideas, notions and dreams of men.
Matthew 3:12 (a) Our Lord JESUS, as well as others, used "wheat" as a type of Christians, believers in the Lord JESUS. The chaff represents hypocrites, who are raised among the wheat, and close to the wheat, but never become "wheat." In the final day, GOD takes the Christians (the wheat) into His home in glory, while the unsaved are shut out. (See also Luke 3:17).
Matthew 13:25 (a) The grain in this verse represents the Word of GOD as the wheat, and false doctrines and false writings as the tares. There are always those in every community who would bring evil doctrines in among GOD's people in order to hinder the salvation of souls. The field in which these mixed seeds are sown is the world. In GOD's true church, only the precious Word of GOD is preached and taught.
John 12:24 (a) This grain is the Lord JESUS Himself. He was cut down and was buried, but came forth from the tomb to produce a tremendous crop of believers for eternity.
