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.

    Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 2 Thessalonians 2:2 Read whole chapter See verse in context That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

    Norm 1 coming, then he goes into examples of what it will be like. Christ is only coming once and when the earth is burned off of all evil he will set up His Kingdom and those examples of people that are caught having a good time with instead of Christ, antichrist who were doing the things like in the day of Noah and were worshipping their husband saying they are a widow no longer is what is said.
  • Norm
    There are TWO separate comings of the Son of man in Matthew 24. You see the obvious Coming of verse 30, including the Sign, which proceeds GOD'S wrath, or, Great tribulation of destruction and desolation when all will die shameful deaths. You also see the Coming of verses 37 through 47 which precedes GOD'S wrath as the disobedient are still living life business-as-usual and planning futures. Contrary to popular deception, the LORD does not delay His salvation and will Save those who love Him prior to His wrath. JESUS IS THE SAVIOUR. Pray in CHRIST JESUS asking Him to SAVE you from the wrath to come.
  • Norm
    One must be blessed with the Holy Spirit of CHRIST to understand scripture. There is no other way or method or else the enemy would understand the mystery. The body of CHRIST, the obedient who sincerely believe that the LORD JESUS CHRIST is SAVIOUR, will be Saved from the wrath of Great tribulation. The disobedient, those who do not believe that JESUS SAVES, will not be Saved but will die in the wrath of Great tribulation. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
