Is the Great Crowd the same as the World of Mankind in the Earthly Kingdom?

Some argue that the Great Crowd are the same as the World of Mankind. They point out that promises to the Great Crowd are similar to promises that we find for mankind in the coming earthly kingdom.

Are the Great Crowd the same as all the people in Paradise Earth?

Just as the Anointed 144,000 (the Little Flock) are selected “out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation” (Rev 5:9 NWT), so are the Great Crowd (Rev 7:9).
