I noticed on another thread that it was said that the "Kingdom of Heaven" and the "Kingdom of God" are not the same - not synonymous. This seems to be a fairly common dispensational teaching. If so, what about verses like: Matthew 13:31 - "Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof." and Luke 13:18-19 - "Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it."
