I think a major misunderstanding of the kingdom of God as it is in this present age is that most fail to understand that it is has a VISIBLE aspect. This visible aspect is two-fold. 1. There is a visible aspect in the sense of PROFESSION - Mt. 13 2. There is a visible aspect in the sense of PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION of God's kingdom on earth - Mt. 18:17-18; 21:45; This second aspect of PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION is inclusive of a PUBLIC house of God, (1 Tim. 3:15) with a publicly qualified ministry (1 Tim. 3:1-13) and publicly qualfied ordinances with a public qualified commission (Mt. 28:19-20). It is within this visible and public aspect of God's kingdom on earth where confusion and false profession lie. In contrast the invisible aspect of God's kingdom on earth is the rule of God within the hearts of humans. Such humans at any given period in time compose the two visible aspects of God's kingdom on earth. They are among those who profess Him as Lord and Savior. They are among those who congregate as the public house of God and among the qualified public ministry. It is within this public aspect where both the family of God and Satan mingle under the profession of true children of God.
