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

    None of many will not be ready. He will come like a thief in the night. Be not afraid. If you love Jesus and keep the commandments God handed down through Moses than you will pray that Christ comes sooner. Teach your children the scriptures, pray with them. Teach them to love and not hate. Forgive those that curse you. Pray often for forgiveness. He will forgive you also. Christ gave his for us.
  • Jesus loves you. HE IS COMING SOON. Be ready.
    Israel has been reestablished for years. Jesus loves you. Be ready when He comes. HE IS COMING SOON. Be ready.
  • BSP
    Verse 30: The sign of the Son of Man mentioned here is different from the sign of Jesus' presence. The enemies of God will realize that this is something supernatural from God.
  • Bruce
    dis-: Yes it's all about Israel. The Land Reborn-again 1948. THE LORD said HE WILL BRING IT TO BE. There has always been wars. The Start of Spring was 1948. We are in or Heading To Summer. The End has Begun With Israel back in The Picture. Stay in The Bible Only. There are a lot of Posts that will Lead to The Wide Gate, many will go that way! Satan will keep you from Studying The Bible and Prayer
  • A disciple
    "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." The point of this parable is NOT to use the fig tree in some kind of symbolism, to mean Israel (for example); but for how when we shall see the "yet tender" evil beginning to spring.
  • A disciple
    "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened..then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven..they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory..And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect.." WE MUST ENDURE TO THE END TO BE SAVED!
