Take heed that no man lead you astray. (G. C. Morgan)
This is not to passed over lightly. When Christ adopted the predictive element in prophecy He warned His disciples lest they should be led astray.
Whenever we speak of future things we are dealing with a matter full of importance, yet so full of peril that there have been all kinds of fanciful interpretations, all wandering from the clear declarations of Scripture, in order to fit in with some preconceived notions of future things, until we find in the Church of God today, vast numbers of God’s own children, saints without a doubt, who have altogether given up any attention to what the bible has to say concerning things to come.
Christ knew this danger. These men came to Him in the supreme moment when the shadows were upon Him, and when the great strain was before Him, and they asked Him, Tell us something about the future? And his first word was, “Take heed that no man lead you astray.”
As we read these two chapters [24-25], we need that that warning should fall upon our spirits. “Take heed.” We cannot read these things carelessly.
G Campbell Morgan The Gospel According to Matthew
