Corrupt Christianity - the introduction of other things as the ground of peace with God beside faith in the sacrifice of Christ once offered that leads to the admixture of idolatry with the worship of God.

The Church of God - Abraham's seed. A body "blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ" (Ephesians 1:3), including believing Jews during the time that the nation is under blindness, with whom God in sovereign and marvelous grace has associated believing Gentiles, making all one body and joint heirs etc.

Whatever the Church on earth may seem to us now to be, it is still, as to its constituent parts, a company comprising Jews, partakers of grace, with whom God has brought in certain Gentiles, setting then on the same ground as to essential blessings, even as the redeemed of every age are essentially one in the relations to which they are set.

God's faithfulness to the Church is the pledge and security of His faithfulness in His promises to Israel.

(Samuel Tregelles - from "Remarks on the Prophetic Visions of Daniel - copyright 1845. Ch 3 - "The Four Beasts" - pg 44-46)
