Throughout history— The Church of Jesus Christ has cried out to God during times of persecution, decline, and internal strife.
Under the Roman Emperor Nero, Christians suffered immense persecution—being burned at the stake, crucified on crosses, and murdered in the Colosseum.
During the second through fifth centuries, the early church experienced intense internal strife because of false teachers bent on warping the message of Christ and his church.
More recently, Western churches are mourning and praying for a restoration .The world-wide church is asking the question the people of God have asked for millennium: “Why, Lord?”
God promised this One would come to save them, rescue them, and put them back together again.
And guess what? He did!
Luke wrote, “The Son of Man has come to seek out and to give life to those who are lost” (Luke 19:10 TPT).
And because he did, nothing can ever stop us—not even the power of death will be able to overpower the church.
