Bible Commentary for Matthew 24:15

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:15


24:15 When ye see the abomination of desolation - Daniel's term is, The abomination that maketh desolate, #Dan 11:31|; that is, the standards of the desolating legions, on which they bear the abominable images of their idols: Standing in the holy place - Not only the temple and the mountain on which it stood, but the whole city of Jerusalem, and several furlongs of land round about it, were accounted holy; particularly the mount on which our Lord now sat, and on which the Romans afterward planted their ensigns. He that readeth let him understand - Whoever reads that prophecy of Daniel, let him deeply consider it. #Mark 13:14|; Luke 21:20; Dan 9:27.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:15


Mt 24:15 When therefore ye see the abomination of desolation. This is the sign when Christians should flee from Jerusalem. See Da 9:27 11:31 12:11. Luke says, "When ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies" (Lu 21:20). This was, therefore, Christ's explanation of the abomination of desolation. The Roman army, heathen, with heathen images and standards, ready to sacrifice to idols on the temple altar, working the desolation of Jerusalem and the temple, is what is meant. In the holy place. Mark says, "Where it ought not" (Mr 13:14); around "the holy city" (Mt 4:5).

Discussion for Matthew 24

  • Barry Sartin on Matthew 24:15
    Food for thought. In Genius Babel was the separating of nations and languages. Through current technology this separation is being restored through translation programs, international financial systems and currency. With that being said humans and principalities are in the process of restoring Babel (humanism). Man can solve all is own problems by the power of his own hand. I believe the beast is AI, whoever controls worldwide computer technology and those who prosper by it will be controlling communication, commerce, criminal prosecution. For the first time in my life I see ancient prophecy being fulfilled before my eyes. The evil events which are occurring are in fact a testament to the factual truth annotated in KJ Bible. I do not know if the Catholic Church or the US is the great whore however either one seems qualified based on their current state as opposed to their founding. In summary we as Christians need to Trust God in the storm, Expect and prepare for persecution, God is harvesting His children and He deserves the very best. Count it a privilege to have the opportunity to show Him your Faith, Loyalty and Trust because He deserves the very best

    I believe you're correct, that current & future technology will play a major role in not just uniting the world (as we see evidence of it now), but also be instrumental in giving the base to a one world government. Man might believe that with his knowledge & expertise in so many fields, that he is the 'saviour' for the world's woes: but the only evidence we see is that constant deterioration in his true spiritual & mental condition that might show him proficient in his works but deficient in his connection to his Maker & Redeemer.
  • Francesco - in Reply on Matthew 24:15
    The whore would be an economical(trade) system. Maybe of the CC. The beast will hate the whore city and remove her citizens and leave the city defenseless. Then the beast will consume her, meaning the city merchandise and destroy the city. Then maybe the beast will then bring in the mark system after the whore is gone away. The whore will cause, maybe by seduction, the kings of the earth to commit fornication before getting whacked.

    Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
  • WilliamtheResolute on Matthew 24:15
    The Abomination of Desolation is the Catholic Church and the Whore of Babylon is the Jesuit on the throne.
  • Randy on Matthew 24:15
    This is still in the future seventieth week Daniel spoke of. The Abomination of desolation is when the antichrist proclaims himself as a god. In the middle of a 7 year period he will do this and 1290 days will remain before the coming of Christ to defeat him and his evil army
  • Faithfull on Matthew 24:15
    The Abomination of desolation has begun the living waters of God have been destroyed in order to kill the earth planet of Heaven,
    And it shall be desolate unto this end,this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
    And this shall be the end of it, and in this shall the temple cleansed.
    understand this the Lord shall cleans the whole earth and no longer tolerate the children of Cain.
    Our Lord Lives forevermore and now! claims His heaven. Who is this who dares stand in His way, I tell you this non no not one shall stand, the same as no not one remembered. yes they are all His and the Lord remembers them and for them He did return!
  • David Moses on Matthew 24:15
    Satan is the abomination of desolation and the mountain is pointing to Christ.
  • Cole on Matthew 24:15
    Mathew 24:15 in fact is the false religion which marks the abomination that make desolate. We see same thing in Revelation, the whore that sits upon many waters; a woman clothed with scarlet whom John marveled atů
  • William Chabot on Matthew 24:15
    The abomination of desolation is satan who is standing in the temple.ie.The churches...Flee to the mountains..and CRY FOR MERCY!
