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

  • Bruce
    dis-: Yes it's all about Israel. The Land Reborn-again 1948. THE LORD said HE WILL BRING IT TO BE. There has always been wars. The Start of Spring was 1948. We are in or Heading To Summer. The End has Begun With Israel back in The Picture. Stay in The Bible Only. There are a lot of Posts that will Lead to The Wide Gate, many will go that way! Satan will keep you from Studying The Bible and Prayer
  • A disciple
    "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." The point of this parable is NOT to use the fig tree in some kind of symbolism, to mean Israel (for example); but for how when we shall see the "yet tender" evil beginning to spring.
  • A disciple
    "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened..then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven..they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory..And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect.." WE MUST ENDURE TO THE END TO BE SAVED!
  • A disciple
    Lu2677 cont.; We will undoubtedly come across many that will only seek to oppose and contradict us; and sometimes those that are just speaking things because they heard some one else say them; and those also who have a very small and underdeveloped understanding: whatever the case, we have the Master as our Leader and example to follow when dealing with all kinds, and His Spirit speaking in us.
  • A disciple
    Lu2677 cont. The way I understand it, we are under a charge from God to teach all men to observe (keep and do) all things that Jesus commands us; that we are His Ambassadors and Friends, sent to "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine:"(2 Tim.4:2) "These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority."(Tit.2:15).
  • A disciple
    Hello Lu2677, nice to hear from you again :) Deuteronomy 29:29; Matthew 6:4,6,18; Ezekiel 8:12; etc.. In Moses "the secret things" has to do with how the people would eventually be punished severely for forsaking the Holy Covenant, in light of their inward defiance and disbelief. The Lord teaches us about our religion being in truth in the inward parts. Ezekiel was shown their secret sinful minds.
