    ....."The Kingdom of God" and "The Kingdom of Heaven"?

    If so, what is/are the difference(s)?

    Hi,
    That is a very good question. When reference is made to the kingdom of heaven, the rule of God in the earth is contemplated. This is in marked contrast to the kingdom of God, which includes His rule throughout the universe and over all beings who are in subjection to Him.

    I have also read articles that they are exactly the same.

    The third position I have seen is that the Kingdom of God is all saved people throughout the ages, and the Kingdom of Heaven includes us and all other beings such as angels, or whatever else exists that we do not know about.
