Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:14


24:14 This Gospel shall he preached in all the world - Not universally: this is not done yet: but in general through the several parts of the world, and not only in Judea And this was done by St. Paul and the other apostles, before Jerusalem was destroyed. And then shall the end come - Of the city and temple. Josephus's History of the Jewish War is the best commentary on this chapter. it is a wonderful instance of God's providence, that he, an eye witness, and one who lived and died a Jew, should, especially in so extraordinary a manner, be preserved, to transmit to us a collection of important facts, which so exactly illustrate this glorious prophecy, in almost every circumstance. #Mark 13:10|.

Discussion for Matthew 24:14

  • Tinashe Mufandaedza for verse 14
    And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached to all the nations as a testimony against them and the end shall come. The preaching of the gospel ushers the end of everything. Not all shall believe on the preaching bt they are given an opportunity to hear the gospel so that on the day of judgment they will no reason as an excuse for not repent. In the beginning was the word gospel and also the gospel shall mark the end.

  • A kingdom is a government. God's kingdom is in heaven. Matthew 16:19 "And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." Daniel 2:44 " And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever." The previous kingdoms refer to the world powers that are ending, soon to be replaced by God's kingdom. God's heavenly government will bring peace to the earth. Isaiah 2:4 "And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." Only God's government can bring peace.
  • Marek Zielinski for verse 14
    Deep breath before the plunge. I am working to have the global peace project, as a modern revelation of the gospel of peace - Matthew 24:14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 12 And at all times, and in all places, he shall open his mouth and declare my gospel as with the voice of a trump, both day and night. And I will give unto him strength such as is not known among men. Doctrine and Covenants 88:103 103. And another trump shall sound, which is the fifth trump, which is the fifth angel who committeth the everlasting gospel—flying through the midst of heaven, unto all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people.
  • Senyoh Emmanuel Philemon for verse 14
    Brethern, it's our responsibility to preach the word in all the world. That's why God called us. The Bible says 'he that winneth souls is wise'. Soul winning is third duty for all christians.
