Bible Commentary for Matthew 24:26

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:26


24:24 They would deceive, if possible, the very elect - But it is not possible that God should suffer the body of Christians to be thus deceived.

24:27 For as the lightning goeth forth - For the next coming of Christ will he as quick as lightning; so that there will not be time for any such previous warning.

24:28 For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles he gathered together - Our Lord gives this, as a farther reason, why they should not hearken to any pretended deliverer. As if he had said, Expect not any deliverer of the Jewish nation; for it is devoted to destruction. It is already before God a dead carcass, which the Roman eagles will soon devour. #Luke 17:37|.

    I don't see it saying that at all. It says you must take responsibility for laying with someone out of wedlock. It makes sense, since a pregnancy may occur and God is making provision for mother and baby to be taken care of. God does not condone sex outside of marriage, but is providing protection for the female if that happens.
  • Carleton on Matthew 24:26
    1 John 5:20-21

    And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given is an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

    Little Children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
  • Christina Robinson on Matthew 24:26
    On this Scripture could it be referring to lawlessness in the Churches in opening their doors to the Church telling the congregation that it is a sin not to gather and not practicing social distance and not wearing a mask . Opening up the nursery handling the children without concern for there health and going as far as to go to Summer Camp and the children mocking others hugging on each other while with a mask on. Posting a preacher rebuking christian people for not opening there doors telling us that we should not wear a mask and not social distance because the first Church in the Book of Acts did not do this. I see this Scripture for this time as they are saying here He is follow us and if you don't you are in sin.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:26
    I had a church tell me I was going to hell.

    I told them busting peoples doors open early Saturday mornings for to evangelize, was not kind. I told them they would harden their hearts against God. They would "pray" anything to get us to leave. I had to stop going.

    Next church believed all single people should be married ASAP. They did their own matchmaking.

    You need to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to the Pastor He wants to be your shepherd. He actually said turn here, go up 4 streets, turn left...I walked through the doors and Holy Spirit said there's your shepherd. I learned a lot there.

    Pray. The Lord will find you the best, no matter how far you have to drive. :D

    Dear Jesus make this easy for her and may her faith increase in your Goodness and Truth.

    the pre trib rapture is a secret coming even said jesus comes in secret and remains in secret until he is reveled second coming jesus warns not to believe he is in a secret place listen and believe rapturists it is a lie there is one second coming and it will be no secret read the truth
  • Jesus Villalobos on Matthew 24:26
    This is warning of a false rapture. The subject matter is the coming of Jesus. Jesus starts this by saying that "Many will come in His name; saying I am He." This is NOT saying that many will claim to be the messiah. It is saying that they were here to take us to Him. These would be the very devils controlling those who were preaching false doctrines concerning the timing of His return. We MUST remember, the subject being addressed by Jesus to His disciples, is the sign and the timing of His return to earth. This is why He strictly tells us NOT to go with those who will ultimately say they are here to take us to Him. These would be the very devils that came in the days of Noah and took the women and produced giants like Goliath. This is the correct interpretation of what Jesus was talking about when He warned us NOT to go with them! He then goes on to tell us we MUST wait for the sign of the Son of Man before His return. Matthew 24:29-31.
