Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:10


24:10 Then shall many he offended - So as utterly to make shipwreck of faith and a pure conscience. But hold ye fast faith, #Mt 24:11|. in spite of false prophets: love, even when iniquity and offences abound, #Mt 24:12|. And hope, unto the end, #Mt 24:13|. He that does so, shall be snatched out of the burning. The love of many will wax cold - The generality of those who love God will (like the Church at Ephesus, #Rev 2:4|,) leave their first love.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:10


Mt 24:10 Then shall many be offended. Shall stumble and fall, rather than suffer for Christ. The half-hearted always do.

Discussion for Matthew 24

  • A disciple
    "For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many." Matthew 24:5 When the disciples asked the Lord, What will be the sign of your coming? His response was simple and direct Don't be naive! Stay Awake! Don't let yourselves be foolishly misled by anyone and everyone who says, I'm a Christian! After that He goes on to describe the results of a world filled with impostors and hypocrites, ignorant and misguided, name only Christians. It will be just like it was in the days before the cataclysm: apostasy, worldliness, selfishness, consciences seared with a hot iron and scarred without feeling NO MORE HAVING ANY CARE TO KNOW THE TRUTH, QUIT SINNING, OR RECEIVE CORRECTION...eating and drinking and carrying on like the world will just go on for ever and no God influencing their lives! It will be the faithfulness and obedience of the true Elect that will provoke the wicked and the hypocrites to persecute us. Because of all these things, God will see no reason for letting the world continue and He will come!
  • Rev Gary Pitser
    I believe Matthew 24 and St Luke 21 are the same and both are talking about the Second
    Coming and not the Rapture of the Church.When they asked this question the Rapture
    was still a mystery Paul made it known after Christ was risen.
  • Daniel Jacobsen
    I believe that the Forerunner of this verse truly Isaiah chapter 40 verse 8.. Which states that the grass withers the flowers fade but the word of the Lord shall stand forever... But either way nothing changes the fact that the word of the Lord shall stand forever, Hallelujah!
  • A disciple
    "But know this, that if the GOODMAN of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up." The Archaic meaning of a Goodman is a Husband or House Manager, a manager of an estate, to till (the soil), to manage or use (resources, finances, etc) thriftily. We are under Charge to Manage Use and Keep His Property Wisely.
  • A disciple
    "For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." While the narrative in Gen.6 describes how God saw the world full of apostasy corruption and violence; the people couldn't care less!
