The Kingdom of Heaven is like:

Jesus speaking to his followers used a parable to liken the Kingdom of Heaven, in the last days.

Mat 13:24 He put another parable before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field,
Mat 13:25 but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away.
Mat 13:26 So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also.
Mat 13:27 And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, 'Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?'
Mat 13:28 He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' So the servants said to him, 'Then do you want us to go and gather them?'
Mat 13:29 But he said, 'No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them.
Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'"

Jesus used a parable likened unto a man who sowed “good” seed, and then later his enemy came, and sowed bad seed (weeds). Wheat and weeds look just like each other at first growth until the wheat begins to sprout, and then they are easy to tell the difference between the two. Jesus will then tell his “reapers” at the “Harvest” to go and get the wheat and put it into “HIS BARN”

Notice: the weeds are gathered together “TO BE BURNED”. They are not burned yet, they are just gathered “TO BE BURNED”, but the “wheat are put into his barn!!!! If this is not talking about the “RAPTURE” of the Church I don't know what is!! While the wheat has already been gathered, and taken, and put into God's Kingdom, the weeds are only being prepared to be burn!!!

Later on Jesus's disciples ask him to explain once again the meaning of this parable. This time Jesus changes things to reflect the time in which the weeds are to be burned.

Mat 13:36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And HIS DISCIPLES CAME TO HIM, SAYING, "EXPLAIN TO US THE PARABLE OF THE WEEDS OF THE FIELD."
Mat 13:37 He answered, "The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man.
Mat 13:38 The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. THE WEEDS ARE THE SONS OF THE EVIL ONE,
Mat 13:39 and THE ENEMY WHO SOWED THEM IS THE DEVIL. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels.
Mat 13:40 JUST AS THE WEEDS ARE GATHERED AND BURNED WITH FIRE, so will it be at the end of the age.
Mat 13:41 The SON OF MAN WILL SEND HIS ANGELS, AND THEY WILL GATHER OUT OF HIS KINGDOM ALL CAUSES OF SIN AND ALL LAW-BREAKERS,
Mat 13:42 AND THROW THEM INTO THE FIERY FURNACE. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

Notice: Jesus does not mention the wheat here because they are already gone, but the weeds are NOW being burned, and that will be at the end of the “age” (world), but not so for his Church!!

There is today a gathering (bundling) together of the weeds (children of the devil) to be burned in the days after which the Church is gone.
