Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:4

24:4 Take heed that no man deceive you - The caution is more particularly designed for the succeeding Christians, whom the apostles then represented. The first sign of my coming is, the rise of false prophets. But it is highly probable, many of these things refer to more important events, which are yet to come.

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:4

Mt 24:4 Take heed that no man deceive you. By pretending to be Christ. As they yet believed that Christ would surely return to reign at Jerusalem, this admonition was needed.

    Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves in Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord. Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father thru Jesus Christ our Lord.

    " For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 5:13-21

    Thanks for the interpretation of the word "Christ". The rate of false Christ today in the world has make me wonder what would become of Christendom in the nearer future. I pray God open our eye to see and discern them. Thanks

    Yes they have. Buddsh, Mohamed. And of course the Pope. Yes they have deceived many. They have the most passionate followers of cruel laws and works. The yoke of the Lord is light, so Christians who are lazy take advantage and are lukewarm.

    I consider myself to be a true believer. The Word tells us that many will come in Jesus name, proclaiming to be the Anointed one, so be careful don't be deceived. But it also says in John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. The only way to know that your truly being fed by an anointed Pastor, teacher, Prophet, etc... you have to walk in the Spirit. Ever man is given his own measure of faith. You have to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling of the Lord. Honestly, when your seeking God and His truths, He will lead a guide you every step of the way. When in doubt about the teachers of the Gospel, ask God to give you the Spirit of discernment and watch Him reveal, or expose things, and people. Be encouraged!
