The Church of Jesus Christ has been identified in Scripture,
“A garden enclosed is …my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed” (Song of Solomon 4:12).
Only the Holy Spirit could speak with such authority and grandeur. The world disclaims the church because it only sees the exterior of religious organizations. The Triune God looks inside and sees the Saints shut up in His cocoon of grace as beautiful as a cultivated garden. Christ’s true church has never been a mixed multitude but a Hidden Remnant.
