Since the founding of the church, the body of Christ has suffered extremely painful scenes, but those tense moments led the church of Christ to be a much stronger church. We as a church have a great victory from now on, and that can not be revoked, although we see millions rise up against the church of Christ, because there is a great promise that sustains us immovably and just that we will speak today.
This promise is found in the book of Matthew Chapter 16:18:
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Throughout the years of the Christian age, the church has suffered greatly, although not all times have been suffering, but we see from the book of Acts that early the church began to suffer hardships, and that church enjoyed in middle of its great tribulations, for they knew that they had the great privilege of suffering for the cause of the sovereign Christ. Would we feel the same satisfaction for suffering for the sake of Christ?
