Paul only talks about physical things to impart a message about "spiritual things" as he will eventually talk about "spiritual meat".
Jesus was a king and as the Christ He appointed the kingdom to His little flock.
The ekklesia or Church were another form of government.
Jesus took the government of God from the Pharisees and appointed it to His little flock. How was that government suppose to operate?
How did it bear fruit?
What were the Altars?
Why were they sacrificing?
If it did not exercise authority one over the other how did it function?

1 ¶ Am I not an apostle?[1] am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord? 2 If I be not an apostle[2] unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.

Power of His government

3 ¶ Mine answer to them that do examine me is this, 4 Have we not power to eat and to drink? 5 Have we not power to lead [3]a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? 6 Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power [exousia] to forbear working? 7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? 8 Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also? 9 For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?

Government of Hope

10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. 11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? 12 If others be partakers of this power[exousia] over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power[exousia]; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ. 13 Do ye not know that they which minister[4] about holy things[5] live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach[6] the gospel should live of the gospel[7].

Government of Charity

15 ¶ But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void. 16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! 17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. 18 What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power[exousia] in the gospel.

Government of service

19 ¶ For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant[8] unto all, that I might gain the more. 20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; 21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. 22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker[9] thereof with you.

Government of Faith

24 ¶ Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?[10] So run, that ye may obtain. 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate[11] in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.[12]
