The Kingdom of God is Come Nigh unto You 
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. 
(Luke 10:1-11)
This writer recently experienced major computer problems, starting off with the DVD writer drive "failing" in that, while music could be played, when an attempt was made to back up data, the whole computer switched off. A new drive was purchased at the local store and fitted but the problem persisted. On returning to the store the owner commented that it was probably the power supply giving insufficient power. The computer was thereupon taken there and it was confirmed that a new power supply was needed. This was done, but on connecting up and switching on I was unable to operate the software. 
Now comes the supernatural part that you will find so interesting. 
After attempting a few times to phone the computer store unsuccessfully, I got back into the car, fuming with frustration and rode into town. Now to cut a long story shorter, there was no parking in the area near the store and for the second time in as many minutes I was held up by an orange light while approaching the only traffic lights in that part of the the main street. This meant going round the block and looking for parking again, being dimly aware that all was not well, there was a sense of opression. 
I'm sure you are aware of the definition of a split second - the time it takes from the light turning green until the vehicle (in this case a pickup) behind hoots to wake you up. Well it happened and my reaction was to use the brake. This time the young man must have been angry because he really made a noise. Brakes again, and he would have played a tune if he could have. 
On turning the corner, he raced his vehicle's engine, passed by, cut in front and then jammed on the brakes. Needles to say we collided and there was considerable damage to the front of our (God's) car. He then, very nonchalantly exited his vehicle and said "why did you crash into the back of my vehicle?" 
What happened thereafter, which wasn't very much, came the realisation that this was a spiritual nudge from the Holy Spirit. 
You see, being so involved in worldly problems, the importance of who I was serving had been pushed aside. It took a day or two to be able to see more clearly what the Lord was saying and I was able to repent and repent, asking my Lord to forgive him. 
Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 
(Luke 12:43-46)
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. 
(Romans 5:1-11)

Shortly after this incident, early on "xmas" morning I said to my Lord "Lord I know that You were not born at this time of the year, nevertheless, thank You for coming at the right time to fulfil the Father's purpose." As you have probably experienced, the comfort of His presence was very real, almost as if His arm was around my shoulder. 
After reading a passage of Scripture during our quiet time together, and on closing the Bible, it was noticed that one or two of the feature pages in the front were coming loose. On investigating I was led to turn over one more page and there, at the bottom was a heading entitled "Prophesies of the Messiah fulfilled in Jesus Christ." with a page number. On turning to that page, the first prophecy fulfilled (from Genesis 3:15) was the following: 
But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 
(Galatians 4:4)
Praise You Lord, thank You for Your lovingkindness! 
A few days later, when we needed to obtain a new shrub for the garden, we went to a local nursery and found what was required. The price was a certain amount, but amongst them were a couple that were taller and in larger containers. I was able to convince the proprietor to sell one of these at the price advertised. Happy day, we had saved some money; until that evening the Holy Spirit nudged me again when a tag that priced the shrub some 25% more was noticed. When next in town the additional money will be paid over - to please my Lord. 
No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. 
(Luke 11:33-36)
The Holy Spirit is our Comforter:
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 
(John 14:23-27)
You see, it is our attitude to our Master that shall determine whether we hear the voice of comfort or not - the voice of loving guidance on the narrow road of life in this world which is controlled by the enemy. 
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 
(Romans 6:15-18)
We choose to serve righteousness, and choose to go and put right the wrong that we have done to others when prompted to do so by God the Holy Spirit who resides on our bodies. 
An ongoing experience.
Someone once wrote in a daily devotional: 
The matter of Spiritual freshness, is decided, not by living on the defensive but by living on the offensive. It involves making definite decisions - decisions such as saying "Yes" to all that Christ offers and saying "No" to sin offers. "Christianity", said someone, is not a prohibition, but a privilege." I would agree with that, but would add that it does, however, have a prohibition in it. In our text for today (Mark 9:38-50), Jesus says that if your "hand" or your "eye" causes you to sin, then do something about it. In other words, do not tolerate anything that cuts across the central purpose of you life. From head to foot, you are to belong to Christ. 
The order in these verses is important. The order is hand, foot, eye. the "hand" represent the doing of evil, the "foot" the approach toward evil, and the "eye" the seeing of evil with desire from afar. What's the message from all this? Quite clearly, the message is that sin must be cut out at every stage. The place to begin, of course, is with the "eye" - the place of desire. Take care of that and you won't have to worry too much about the "hand" and the "foot". 
See Luke 11:33-36 above for confirmation. 
However, if our eyes see the Spiritual light, our feet walk therein and our hands do the things of the light, our Lord shall bless us, spirit, soul and body, in the things wherein we work on a daily basis. 
And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 
(Luke 12:22-23)
The same Power that Jesus of Nazareth gave to His followers then is available to His followers now while waiting for the fulness of God's time to come: 
The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptised with water; but ye shall be baptised with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. 
(Acts 1:1-11)
Please read Isaiah 32:1-20.

The Holy Spirit is not "another Helper" or "another Councellor" as written in various new translations of God's word, but "another Comforter". 
Who then was the first Comforter? 
Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them. 
(Exodus 32:34)
Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 
(John 14:22-27)
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
