Matthew 3:12 (a) This action is used as a type of the work of our Lord when He brings together His own people to dwell in His eternal Kingdom. The Christians are the wheat. All others are the unsaved who are chaff, tares, etc. (See also Luke 3:17).

Matthew 12:30 (a) The Lord uses this term to indicate the cooperation and fellowship of His own servants who work with Him and for Him, and according to His instructions. They are bringing into the Kingdom, into the Church, believers from many fields. (See also Luke 11:23).

Matthew 13:28 (a) By this type the Lord is telling us of the day when He will separate the unsaved from the Christians in order that His children may be with Him and all the ungodly sent off to their eternal punishment.

Matthew 24:28 (b) This expression is used to describe the great hordes of the ungodly who will gather over and around the dead bodies of those who oppose GOD's people, GOD's Gospel, and GOD's Word. The picture is that of the eagles, or the vultures who assemble around the carcass of an animal to devour it. (See also Luke 17:37).

John 11:52 (a) Our wonderful Saviour is telling us in this way that one day He will bring together Jews and Gentiles to make one worshipping body of people who will own Him as their Shepherd. (See also Psalm 50:5).
