In a systemic era where the nation seemed to have forgotten the biblical standards set forth by Father God, tensions were high. Families struggled to maintain normalcy amid immorality and injustice. Gloria Echols was no exception. Like other families that stood on the Word of God, she purposed to do the same. Yet, as the nation began to tear away from the very heart of God, Gloria faced yet another crisis. Her marriage was in jeopardy as well. As a result, her posture of defense in prayer seemed to falter. With battlegrounds both at home and nationally, Gloria knew she needed help. Corruption had crept its way into nearly every facet of government and legislation. The media filled the airwaves with misleading propaganda. Someone had to take a stand! Something had to be done to turn the hearts of the people back to Father God. So, the church began to pray with fervency. Yet, how would the church, i.e. the Ekklesia, dispel the rising trend of gross darkness in cultural norms? How would Gloria and her family maintain the normalcy that modeled the definition of Christianity in the face of a national crisis? This Means War is founded on Matthew 11:12 AMP “From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize].”
