"It is God's purpose to set up one kingdom and demolish the other, not only in the hearts of particular men, but in kingdoms and nations and public societies. Jesus Christ was appointed to be not only 'king of saints' (Rev. 15:3), but 'king of nations' (Jer. 10:7); and therefore not only to erect Himself a throne and a government in the hearts of His people, but to have His religion owned and countenanced, and supported by nations and kingdoms and public societies of men."
-- Thomas Manton, "Works, Vol. 18", pg. 34

This is in the context of a sermon on Joshua 6:26 and an excursion about the "Two Kingdoms" of Augustine, which Manton identifies with Christ and Satan.
