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|.

    Hi Bruce; I wanted to add a little to support your efforts. Luke 22:28-29 "Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;" In reading all that the Lord said in the last days before He suffered (Mt. 24-26; Mk. 13-14; Lk. 21-22; Jn. 13-18) there's NO MISTAKING that Christ and His followers ARE appointed tribulation!
  • John
    I believe we are at the beginning of the tribulation. Look around, abortion, homosexuality, the loss of love of one's neighbors, the twisting of scripture, the threat of war. As our Lord said "Look up, for the salvation draws nigh!" I don't know when I don't worry about that. Might be today might be next week, it may be as I am being led to my death. COME LORD JESUS! !
  • A disciple
    In case you haven't looked outside lately, the so-called church isn't doing a thing to hinder the wicked! The Holy Spirit in the true Saints (inside or outside the mainstream churches) still convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; but the ungodly cast away the cords and break the bands in a fury of defiant rage against God's Son. The hindrance is the restraint which goes with integrity!
