Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:6

24:6 Wars - Near: Rumours of wars - At a distance. All these things must come to pass - As a foundation for lasting tranquillity. But the end - Concerning which ye inquire, is not yet - So far from it, that this is but the beginning sorrows.

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:6

Mt 24:6 Ye shall hear of wars. The Jewish war began in A.D. 66, and ended five years after. During this period all the Roman empire was filled with commotion. Nero, the emperor, was overthrown by Galba; six months after, Galba was overthrown by Otho; a few months after, Otho was overthrown by Vitelius; a little later, he was overthrown by Vespasian. All of these but the last, who ascended the throne shortly before Jerusalem was destroyed, died violent deaths.

Discussion for Matthew 24

  • Stef Navarro
    How about the souls of those who already perished?
  • John Higgins for verse 24
    the phrase: "if it were possible" was said be Jesus....so there is something to it, yet in His situation it was not possible. by talking about the Elect....we need to define elect: then we need to see the purpose in adding that clause "if it were possible".....it is either possible or it is not possible. one thought track leads to God will not hinder one of the elect from being tric-ked. The other thought track would be it is impossible for the elect to be tric-ked. The implications lead either to there is no safety in being an elect, that even the most devout in Christ can fall. OR, that God has put a seal on the elect that they cannot fall.... which brings us right back to once truly saved, always saved, and chosen from BEFORE the world was formed Eph 1, or our faith depends on our works.... It is God's Word that says we are his, we are in his hands and no one or nothing can separate us from the Love of Christ....

    Mark, re: your comment suggestion of v. 36 , "But, what if the "Son" spoken of in Matthew 24:36 is a mistranslation in the KJV and English version of Bibles and is not referring to Christ...rather instead referring to Satan himself." Verse 36 does not mention the word, "son" e.g., "36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Blessings, Tim

    Randy elect means set aside ones.Gods elect that are chosen by God and they are deliver up to the churches of the one world system after the false messiah takes over and the Holy Spirit speaks through the elect. They are led by two witnesses that will be in the first tribulation of antichrist and they go against antichrist because the false Christ says that he is Christ but he is a fake. And after the two witnesses are killed and lay in the street so all can see them dead, well, they rise up at the sound of the 7 th trump and THEN Our Lord Jesus Returns at that 7 th Trump and we are all changed into spiritual bodies and Our Lord sets up His Kingdom. The elect are Gods chosen to stand against Satan with the Holy Spirit.
  • The work "Christ" is defined as "The anointed one". Jesus said "Many will come in my name". This is the key to understanding this scripture. many focus on "I am Christ". When looking tat this scripture as many coming in the name of Jesus and the the word "Christ" as meaning the anointed one, then you will easily see it's meaning which is "Many will arise that will be preaching in the name of Jesus, and proclaiming that they are anointed, but be very careful of that because "many" will be deceitful and cause many believers to go after them and follow them. The root of this is the love of money. They proclaim that they are anointed and will actually produce a personal following. Many will be deceived simply because they have a desire to follow the one that is best anointed and seems to know the Lord and his ways, but wind up following one who is Christ within themselves. This is the reason "shepherding" became big in the 80's and the "anointing" became big in the 90's. They are not part of the five fold ministry because they are not doing what Ephesians said the 5 fold ministry should be doing. Be careful that you are not deceived. Be VERY carful.

    Verse 28: The carcass are lost people. Note verse 39 sets the theme for verses 40 and 41 which a lot of people think is the rapture, it's not. The one's taken away are the lost. See Luke 17:24-37 where it is made more clear, the 12 ask the Lord where they are taken to. The cross reference for all this is Revelation 19:17-21. The ones left go into Christ's Earthly Kingdom, the 1,000 years.
