Matthew chapter 24 commentary

Matthew chapter 24 commentary This is a very important chapter as this is where Jesus predict the future of the world with current events such as the soon destruction of Jerusalem . Matthew chapter 24 commentary talks about many different events such as the times of Noah, the end. Of the world, the return of Jesus . The tribulation , the mark of the beast , the description of Jerusalem being an ensign of the end of the world. Around of the end of Matthew chapter 24 commentary Jesus gives the personality one needs to have to be in heaven .

We can correlate this with other places where Jesus explain stat we can only receive this change by his righteousness which is only by faith .

24 1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. Jesus disciples wanted Jesus to get proud about his nation and this building the temple which was one of the wonders of the world . Here we see a problem even in many Christians that still make distinction between nations and love some people more that some from other countries .

It is ok to love ones country , but when it is to the point of despising and hating people from other countries this is a sin and racism . In Matthew chapter 24 commentary Jesus rather points to the spiritual state of Israel and says that because of the nation rejecting him the saviour the temple would be destroyed . Jesus rather points to his disciples the world wide events of all humans united either in sin or doing good . For those who will make it to heaven there is no distinction of race or country . There will be no passport in heaven. There will be no frontiers in Heaven

.MT 24 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Jesus prophesied that about 30 years later in ad 70 Titus the Roman military chief would come and destroy Jerusalem temple . The cause was the rejection of the nation of Jesus himself Because the masses believed the Pharisees rather that the voice of God in the heart .

The Jews had a choice to make believe men or truth . The majority was with the Pharisees all people who followed the majority were rejected by God . After 3 years and a half of ministry , countless miracles and teachings from Jesus The Jews has no excuse as the truth came to them and they refused it . It was not only a prophet that was among them but God himself .

MT 24 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? The disciple ask Jesus to tell them when shall be the end of the world , but we see that they believed that the destruction of Jerusalem was the end of the world . Christians back the. Believed that the end of the world was going to be in their times .

Matthew chapter 24 commentary Interesting to see that Jesus takes this as links also the destruction of Jerusalem with the end of the world .here Jesus starts to enumerate events and signs to happen before the end of the world .

MT 24 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. We see the first thing we need to beware of is deception many Christians think it does not matter what we believe in . But it is life or death because God judges us I'm a great way with what we have believed . In Matthew chapter 24 commentary we see that all honest people will accept truth and all dishonest people will reject truth . If something is true it is impossible that an honest would reject it . God knows in this way that this is the test of honesty . Revelation 21 says that all liars shall have their part in the lake of fire .honesty and humility here are the two great pillars to be a Christian .

MT 24 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Deception will take a great art of Christians in hell how do we know that ? Jesus says few fond the narrow road . Many are called few chosen . When the mark of the beast shall be passed the great majority of Christians will receive it . They wilfully reject truth and brace this works at the same time claiming to be Christians.. in Matthew chapter 24 commentary We learn to beware of false teachings and this means we need to correctly learn how to read the Bible .

MT 24 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. I'm revelation 9 it says that the 4 angels that hold the winds of strife will let go . At that time such scenes of strife and war will be on earth sick as we have never seen before . This is not the end yet as more events Ned to happen such as the lour cry, the seven last plagues, the battle of Armageddon, the dealing, the shaking and many more.

MT 24 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. The final events will be terrible . War will be waged Ellen g white says that the third world war will happen . Those conflicts cost money and will cause famines in diverse places of the earth . In Matthew chapter 24 commentary we are also told that God will also send judgments in earthquakes and in diverse manners. We know that every country and individual has a limit . When that lit is passed then Gods judgments fall .

MT 24 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. We cannot imagine what will happen on earth in the following years . Ellen white says the most vivid imagination cannot reach the magnitude of the ordeal . Zephaniah 2 says that we need to seek humility it may be that God will share us in that time . Humility is a great thing and precious for God . No proud will be in heaven . Ma 4 says all the proud will be like ashes. This is because proud people claim that what this gave them belongs to them they lie and rob God of his glory. . all glory goes to God . We cannot do anything without Him .

MT 24 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. This is a sign you are a Christian. . if you do not have any opposition . If everybody loves you then you are not line Jesus . This world is opposite to God . Humility, sincerity is seen as weakness and hated . Turning the other cheek, not seeking the first place is tough weakness . Yet the government of God is founded upon those principles . The which if we do not have , we will not enter heaven with principles opposite to God.

MT 24 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. Suffering will be so great that it will too much for many Christians who will give up their faith . In Matthew chapter 24 commentary we see that it does not say a few , but many . It means that majority of Christians will give up their faith . What will happen for them to give up their faith ? The Sunday law is one event. Very possibly there will be other events before that will the test of the professed believers in Jesus . At the Sunday law or mark of the beast it will be enforced to keep Sunday . Those who will want to follow the Bible rather than sin will be persecuted .

MT 24 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. The Bible says we need to test the prophets and we are required to follow the true prophet . It is not because there will be manky false prophets that God does not have a true prophet . Re 12 17 tells us Jesus will have his 3 angels message group with a true prophet who also keep the true Bible sabbath.

MT 24 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Instead of loving others more, many will go the opposite road . Because many people follow what society does . This is their truth . People follow other people like sheep's follow a leader . People often do not follow principles and truth . They follow emotions . If you want to make it to heaven you cannot follow emotions This is why God sent the Bible so that it is the compass to follow in the midst of every wind of doctrine .
