Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:6

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

  • Daughter of Zion
    Yee doe err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God. (A true Believer has all knowledge of God he gave only to his people the Israelites for he is written throughout the whole bible stating who his chosen people are,
  • A disciple
    Its difficult to say what others know or don't know; even when we ourselves can never really express with words what the Lord has given us to know in our own hearts, how can we judge what we cannot see in others' hearts? When we have a thing being revealed to us, we still are just beginning to see a little, and ought not to say how much others aren't getting it! We don't want to be hypocrites!
  • A studier of The Word
    This chapter is full of misconceptions because many people fail to notice that Jesus is answering two questions. He said the temple and city would be destroyed... The disciples are in awe, when?! They ask. And with a second question mark they ask what will signal us of your return and the end of this age? They recognize that these are two separate events and the end is just after Christ's return.
  • Irene123
    I just now NOTICED Matt. 1:1 - "And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple; ... "; this was the last time He was in the temple. The word 'departed' says to me He could do no more for His unbelieving people. He had the disciples and those many they had converted, but so many He could not reach. This was the beginning of His 'time' - for our salvation. It's sad; makes me want to weep.

    Please don't mistake;Eph.2:8 By grace ye are save through faith, gift from God. But the angels did "seal" them, nonetheless;Rev.7:2-3
  • Lu2677
    Irene 123 Re;Rev.7:14,you said we cannot know how the saints are saved during the great tribulation.If you read Rev.7:2and 3 it says the angels sealed them, and that saved them.They were the 12 tribes. It would help you if you would read the whole chapter, or at least read the verse in context.
