Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:28


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|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:28


Mt 24:28 Whersoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered. The term "carcase" well represents the utterly corrupted Jewish state; the "eagles" is a fit symbol of the Roman army, every legion of which bore the eagle as its standard.

    Yes, (Love For Truth) 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2 Verses 8-10 states clearly that antichrist comes to do his work to deceive people, before the Lord comes back. Please, people out there read Revelation chapter 13, and wake up, the antichrist shows up first. May God bless you.

    The prophectic message at Revelation 12 links what Jesus Christ said in Matthew.

    Voice of love speak; You are right! I found the same as you, once I could freely read the Scriptures for myself and found that ALL the words of the Prophets and Apostles, and the Lord Jesus Himself, ONLY say just that! If we are already used to the Narrow Way walking with Jesus every day, then we won't be offended or misled when the whole world collapses under its own rebellion and confusion!

    Every time I read this it makes it harder to believe in pretrib rap. He talks about our faith being put to the ultimate test and many falling away in other scripture. The design of this chapter lines out post trib rap to me. All of the disciples minus John I believe were martyr'd for there faith. I think it's naïve to think that we won't be tested and go thru suffering Matt:9 -22.I pray Im wrong
