False prophets, as well as wars and rumors of wars, characterize the whole of the present age.From the John MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 24:6.
Even though we see chaos and confusion around us, the Lord’s Saints are not to be troubled. Be encouraged that all of this was explained and taught to us beforehand (Mark 13:23), and therefore any storms should not come as any surprise whatsoever.
When we find ourselves in tumultuous times, the safest place to go for answers is God’s Word. From the In Touch devotional by Charles Stanley, May 27, 2020.
Again the Lord had His disciples confess for the record how little food they had in comparison to the size of the crowd. This made clear that the feeding of many thousands was miraculous evidence of His deity.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 15:34.
