Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:30


24:30 Then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven - It seems a little before he himself descends. The sun, moon, and stars being extinguished, (probably not those of our system only,) the sign of the Son of man (perhaps the cross) will appear in the glory of the Lord.

Discussion for Matthew 24

  • Daniel
    The disciples actually asked THE LORD 3 questions 1- When will the temple be pulled down. 2- HIS return 3- The end of the world as we know it.
    YESHUA answers all of the three questions in this passage of scripture.
    We then need to read in particular Revelations in its simplicity. The Prophets and look closely at the minor prophets and all of the answers are there.

    I feel more bless by reading today's verse.

    I think this scripture gives proof of who God really is because if we take a look at the word of God, you can't doubt it's truth for example: Jesus said in his name we are going to cast out demons Mark 16 vs 17 and conquer things like fear and diseases and we've seen concrete physical proof of this word come alive. So to sum it all up, the word of Jesus about him being Almighty and king forever and the promise of the saints that they will rule as kings forever in eternity can be trusted too based on the above stated example.

    The word of the Lord will stand in the last day : The word will always be ! The word made the heaven and earth and all that therein is : The word formed man out of the dust of the ground : It is man that has messed up God's handy work !!! Because man rebelled against the WORD of the LORD !!!! God IS GOD !!! Soon all will stand before Him !!!
