Having trouble getting people to hear

Thanks for answering my email.  I have been listening to the XXX for about 3 years and to XXXX for about a year, so I am not completely new to the teachings.  When studying, sometimes I find it better to get a "consensus" of the two to help me understand better.  I have now found a third teacher to help in you.
I have been studying only a few years and while I feel that I do "have eyes to see"...I haven't been looking long enough.  I am finding out the truth in God's word, and as I do I feel like if I don't share it I will just explode.  When I do mention it I am looked at funny and when I tell them of the XXX and the XXXX  they come back with all this negative stuff.  They tell me I a heading down a dangerous road listening to them.  One problem is that I am not strong enough in the word yet to "volley" back when they fire at me.  So, while I want to tell people about the truth, I don't yet have the skills to back up my "outlandish claims".  Which also bothers me because that probably means I don't have the Seal of God in my head yet. 
I noticed that one point you seem to differ on is that you believe the Tares and the Wheat are in us all.  Or at least that there are some pure wheat, some mixed, and some pure tares.  It would be hard to believe that the two bloodlines could remain pure especially with our world culture today.  And if that is true that they are both within us all now, why was it so important to Jesus that he pointed out the difference so many times?  He could say to all of us that "we are of our father, the devil", if that is the case.
 
Hi Randy:
 
First, young man, never say you don't have the Seal of God in your mind.  You certainly do.  There are ears and eyes out there.  If you did not, you would not even have any inkling of the importance of hearing and sharing the Word.  Your feeling of helplessness in "volleying back" is so common among us all.  But, the one thing you should never forget, is WHO we are called by.  That one is Yashua, through Father.   He has told us that there is nothing covered that will not be revealed.  Believe it.   As for the purpose He has called us, we as individuals will be shown.  In HIS time--not ours. 
 
Paul explained this very well in Eph 4:11-16
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (KJV)
 
As for "bursting" with the Word, and wanting to share it, remember the parable of the Sower, Lk 8:5-10. Pay close attention to the explanation beginning V11.  Dont be in a hurry.  We have eternity, remember?
 
Believe me, there are some special pearls, held in waiting for you, by Father.  When you find one of these, meant especially for you,  you will burst with love.  Others have some pearls they have earned, and were given to them.  They can share their pearls with you, but you may not necessarily be able to share them with others.  The in-depth study required for the setting of the pearl must be in your head, also.  But,  hear the warning

Matt 7:6
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.(KJV) 
The pearls are also under discussion in Matt 13:45-48, and their sharing are in the parable of the pounds, LK 19:13, and the Talents, Matt 25:14.
 
Randy, for now, I suggest you pay a visit and join in the reading and posting on some "christian" websites.  There are persons there from all persuasions.  You will get valuable experience in the "volleying".  You will quickly see that you have much clearer vision than most there.  However, you will learn some things, mainly that there are WAYS to plant seeds. Ways to spot deep fertile soil.  Though we think we know how to walk, it is not easy to teach one who never has done it how to walk.  Keep working.  You will know the calling you have much quickerwhen you exercize.

NEVER give in.  Our Savior did not.  Should we do less?

OOPS  forgot to answer this part of your  Question.

I noticed that one point you seem to differ on is that you believe the Tares and the Wheat are in us all.  Or at least that there are some pure wheat, some mixed, and some pure tares.  It would be hard to believe that the two bloodlines could remain pure especially with our world culture today.  And if that is true that they are both within us all now, why was it so important to Jesus that he pointed out the difference so many times?  He could say to all of us that "we are of our father, the devil", if that is the case.

We  must be careful to discern between flesh and Spirit.  When I talk  of the "tares" of the flesh, I am careful to note it.  They do exist, today both in the spirit and in the flesh.  Likewise the wheat.   But neither tares nor wheat are the flesh Jesus taught about.   The Jews in John 8 did not discern this.  Let us try.  
 
Within all flesh there is a soul.  This soul has little to do with the flesh, its color or race,  except for the environment the flesh is a part of.  The environment the Jews were part of, through it's tradition could not, and many did not, accept Jesus. 
 
BUT, some did.  Nicodemus was one.  There were many others who did.  The ones who did not "change their mind" remain tares.  There are many tares out there today.  But remaining a Spiritual tare is ones choice.    It is true that there are some who were chosen to be condemned, but htey are few.  These are flesh tares.

Jude 1:4
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (KJV)
 
But there are spiritual tares.  I know, for I was one.  I am not in bad company, though.  David was one too.
 
Ps 73:22-23
22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. (KJV)
 

2 Pet 3:3-5
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: (KJV)
 
Acts 4:13
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. (KJV)
 
Isa 56:10
10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. (KJV)
 
Many of these Spiritual tares are out there waiting.  Be careful who you term kenite.  They are few.  For more detail-- See the response "what's your take on the tares" in the Q/A section or
 
Keep on trucking
