John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 24:28

For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles he gathered together — Our Lord gives this, as a farther reason, why they should not hearken to any pretended deliverer. As if he had said, Expect not any deliverer of the Jewish nation; for it is devoted to destruction. It is already before God a dead carcass, which the Roman eagles will soon devour. Luke 17:37.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(5) The only remedy against the furious rage of the world is that of being gathered and joined to Christ.

(m) Christ, who will come with speed; and his presence will be with a majesty to whom all will flock, just like Eagles.
