Jesus also said In Luke, “Where the body is, there also the vultures will be gathered” Luke 17:37 (NASU).
You know how the vultures circle a dead carcass, right? That’s how Jesus says you will know who the false messiahs are. People will swarm to them but there messages will be dead.
Many people wait and see what others do before they themselves act. When it comes to following God that is a very dangerous act. Jesus said there would be few that find the truth. It’s not found where the vultures fly.
