Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:4


24:4 Take heed that no man deceive you - The caution is more particularly designed for the succeeding Christians, whom the apostles then represented. The first sign of my coming is, the rise of false prophets. But it is highly probable, many of these things refer to more important events, which are yet to come.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:4


Mt 24:4 Take heed that no man deceive you. By pretending to be Christ. As they yet believed that Christ would surely return to reign at Jerusalem, this admonition was needed.

    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!
