Angels harvesting in Matthew

Matthew 13: 24-43 discusses angels harvesting. And again in verse 47 it talks about angels using a net. Just curious as to what this means, if we are supposed to understand it, and when does it occur? thank you

Mathew 13:36-43 explains the parable of the weeds. Here it is from the Berean Study Bible:

The Parable of the Weeds Explained

36Then Jesus dismissed the crowds and went into the house. His disciples came to Him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”

37He replied, “The One who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38The field is the world, and the good seed represents the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.

40As the weeds are collected and burned in the fire, so will it be at the end of the age. 41The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His kingdom every cause of sin and all who practice lawlessness. 42And they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.

He who has ears, let him hear.

Some people believe this is talking about the end times and others believe this is talking about the ending of their present era when Jesus was speaking. What is happening though is judgment on those who reject Christ.

Here is a article talking about it a little bit. I hope this helps.
