Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:6


24:6 Wars - Near: Rumours of wars - At a distance. All these things must come to pass - As a foundation for lasting tranquillity. But the end - Concerning which ye inquire, is not yet - So far from it, that this is but the beginning sorrows.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:6


Mt 24:6 Ye shall hear of wars. The Jewish war began in A.D. 66, and ended five years after. During this period all the Roman empire was filled with commotion. Nero, the emperor, was overthrown by Galba; six months after, Galba was overthrown by Otho; a few months after, Otho was overthrown by Vitelius; a little later, he was overthrown by Vespasian. All of these but the last, who ascended the throne shortly before Jerusalem was destroyed, died violent deaths.

Discussion for Matthew 24

    i am:That's in 1John 2:18:Little children---,2John 7:many receivers---, 1John2:21:not written. It's helpful to show where things are written in the Bible. Satan will misquote, twist,add or remove words,point to other books, hopefully to deceive! Matthew 7:13--broad is the way that leads to destruction,---.1Peter 1:18-19-(redeemed by The Blood of The Lamb)
  • I AM
    Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists: whereby we know that it is the last time. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
  • Bruce
    Norm: You have no answer because it's not in the Bible. He has always been My Lord and Savior and will be forever.

    "the beginning of sorrows." There are some very important things for us to understand about the eventual complete ruin of the world, and how much sorrow before the coming of the Lord. There have been many from time to time, who deceive themselves and others, about there coming a great revival first; when the Scriptures plainly say just the opposite; of great lawlessness, and all restraint removed.
  • Norm
    Bruce, Let me ask you one question: and if you can answer my question, I will answer your question. The Son of God who was crucified shedding His blood for many: what was His name?
  • Bruce
    Norm: Jesus Christ is now live in the flesh. Where in the Bible, is that found?
