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.

Discussion for Matthew 24

  • Norm
    The spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is now alive in the flesh is a liar as EVERY spirit KNOWS this very day that JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE IN THE FLESH! This is a deceiver and an antichrist as it has been made to know yet it does lie! GOD made all to know the truth yet many hold the truth in unrighteousness this very day showing themselves to be antichrists.

    1Thessalonians 4:16-18: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel,and with the Trump of God: and the dead inChrist shall rise first:Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:and so will we ever be with the Lord.-- Comfort one another with these words.(rapture,fly away,float)
  • Matt
    The abomination of desolation is Satan: the antichrist. Those who believe they will be 'raptured' are 'with child and give suck'. In other words, they are spiritually impregnated with Satan's lies. The flood is symbolic of lies from Satan and his ministers. The ones left in the field were obedient to Christ; the ones taken were deceived by the lies. The Real Christ returns after Satan (2nd Thess.)

    Neil: Never been to a church in Canada. Here in the United States most churches are dead or dying. They're looking good,just like a real church. Feeding,clothing, helping with housing and bills, preaching the word of God but without the spirit:Called John 6:44, forgiving 1John1:9, Baptized with the Spirit and Fire Matthew 3:11,You will "know" 2Corinthians 5:17. Impossible not to know!
  • Neil , in Canada
    Question....how many men have claimed to be the Messiah?....is it possible that the present liberal churches ,that still claim Jesus as messiah , have deceived their followers with their liberal agenda?
