Bible commentary

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

  • Irene123
    You have to read the Bible IN CONTEXT - and with common sense. You have to 'agree' with God's word. The word 'taken', and God's word (not man's imagination) means - raptured.
  • Duncan
    Vs.40,41 both state one taken, other left. In English language (even then), taken also means fooled,(off to Antichrist, Trump 6). Left, (or left standing, Trump 7) wearing Gospel armor, v 13 says he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
  • Wayne
    And don't forget Matt. 28:19, where Jesus, Himself, states in the name of the Father, in the name of the Son, in the name of the Holy Ghost. We must not let those, trying to fit the scriptures into their theology, steal our joy in the Lord. Jesus, himself, said Take heed that no man deceives you. Rejoice in your salvation, the joy of freedom from sin. Romans 6. A great time to be Christian!!!
  • Irene123
    The Spirit (Holy Ghost) of Jesus (God) is in one IF - they have followed Acts2:38. They are - ONE, not separate. It's His spirit in us that He will 'quicken' at the Rapture; He will draw His saints to Him just as an electro magnet, when turned on, draws. His Spirit will draw those with His Spirit to His Spirit.
  • Word
    difference Rev. 6 is speaking of coming of antichrist. 24:29 Matthew speaking of the return of Christ after that first tribulation. The apperance is the same but the outcome is the difference. Rev. 6 when 6th seal is opened Sun blackens but then there is a false peace and a false messiah world loves who brings spiritual death to steal souls. In Matt. 24:29 the true Christ shows burning hailstones.
  • A disciple
    When we compare all four Evangelists' accounts of all that the Lord Jesus spoke of, concerning the completion of the age, and His coming, we can see not only events around the immediate end, but also the whole course of the world during this last time. Matthew, Mark, and Luke give us "the impression" of a rather shorter time frame; while in John is specifically God's purpose with us in this age.
