The conclusion is obvious. The church and kingdom in this present age have the same owner, ruler, terms of admission, membership, memorial supper, etc. In this present time period on the earth, they are identical. The same group of people who follow the same Lord are identified from two different perspectives. Passages like Colossians 1:13; Revelation 1:6; 1:9; 5:9-10 along with many others make it abundantly clear that the promised Old Testament kingdom is now in existence! If one denies this, then he is saying Jesus was in error in Mark 1:14,15 and 9:1.
