Well... either your understanding of the verses is poor, or you're not keeping good enough company, I reckon.  ::noworries::

    It happened 2,000 years ago, as you should know, according to the scriptures. Yes, today we should be preaching or heralding the kingdom [reign] of God. However, supernational or miraculous gifts do not seem to be prevalent today as they were in the forming or developing years of the redeemed community. There was, of course, a reason for that.

    Question: How long have you been a student of the Christian scriptures? I'm really curious. Please answer.

Well my man, you have not read far enough into the gospel evidently, by your own admission.
Quote
Luke 10:1-21~"After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name."
There much more.

I already answered.

You haven't understood the verses well enough to spot it when you see it.  You are looking in the wrong place.

 And  more than  50  years , approx .

 Does that help you and I  study  the Greek and  HEBREW text , 5  days  a  week >

 Will you then say  what the  PREACHING  of the  KINGDOM of  HEAVEN is  being  preached in Matt 10:5  were  told not to  go to the  the  way of  GENTILES  and  into  any city  of the  SAMARITANS ?

 Because  Jesus says that  KINGDOM is  at  HAND ,what say  you ??
