"When the government establishes the church you have a crusade. When the Church establishes the government, you have freedom". And just who is the Church?
It is the body of Christ that is made up of individual believers, "to the Jew first and also the Greek" Romans 1:16 "In Christ", "there is no distinction between Jew and Greek" Romans 10:12 Nor is there any distinction "in Christ", of the many denominations, of the past 2000 years. We are one body!
I believe the Angel of the Church of Philadelphia presided over the founding, of this great nation, The United States of America. He was present in the hearts of believers "in Christ", in the local Churches, in the thirteen Colonies. Regardless of their denomination, men (and women, because most had wives) from each Colony gathered together, ironing out differences, to establish our constitution. What city did they meet in? Philadelphia! This was the Church that established our government. The manifold wisdom of God was made known through the Church, to the rulers, and the authorities in the heavenly.
Because the Church has become complacent, or should I say lukewarm, our government has become the synagogue of Satan. Christ has the answer. "Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline. Therefore, be zealous and repent." Revelation 3:19
