Wesley's Notes for Luke 21:36


21:36 Watch ye therefore - This is the general conclusion of all that precedes. That ye may be counted worthy - This word sometimes signifies an honour conferred on a person, as when the apostles are said to be counted worthy to suffer shame for Christ, #Acts 5:41|. Sometimes meet or becoming: as when John the Baptist exhorts, to bring fruits worthy of repentance, #Lu 3:8|. And so to be counted worthy to escape, is to have the honour of it, and to be fitted or prepared for it. To stand - With joy and triumph: not to fall before him as his enemies.

    "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God." Without Faith you cannot please God", "Faith without works is dead like a body without a soul." and didn't Jesus also say " Do not fear I have overcome the World"..... Keep us from temptation and deliver us from evil...
