What does Luke 21:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 21:8

And he said, take heed that ye be not deceived
With false Christs, and false prophets: for many shall come in my name;
making use of his name, taking it to them; not that they would pretend they were sent by him, but that they were he himself: saying, I am [Christ];
so the Syriac and Persic versions supply as we do: and the time draweth near;
not that such will come, but when come, they will say, that the time of the deliverance of the Jewish nation from the Roman yoke is at hand: go ye not therefore after them;
do not be their disciples, or follow them where they would lead you; for nothing but destruction will be the consequence of it.
