(video) Kevin Conner: Disciplines Of My Life

Kevin Conner was one of my Bible teachers at Abbott Loop Bible School for one semester in ~ 1984.

Since this message is about discipline, it’s interesting thatKevin once told me how important it is to work out physically for good health, after I was told by God: “ask him about healing.” I was surprised to hear something practical instead of spiritual.

In this message, Kevin says he was a few weeks from turning 86, and this was published on Feb 26, 2013.

1) Discipline of my mind

“If we don’t guard the gates, then sin enters through the mind.”

“The eye gate and the ear gate.”

“There are three sources of thought that we all have. … Thoughts that come from God…, self…, and from the Devil. … We all have to discern the source of our thoughts.”

2) Discipline of my attitudes

“Attitude indicates performance.”

3) Discipline of my prayer life

“If Jesus needed to pray, how much more do we? If Jesus in his humanity totally depended upon the Father for all he was, all he said, all he did — and he continually kept that line to the Father day and night — how much more do we?”

“My wife is different than me. I generally get up about 6:30 or 7:00, if I’m tired, just to pray and to make sure I feel right with God.”

4) Discipline of the Word

“If you don’t make time you’ll never find time. You have to make time to read the Word. It’s a discipline. The same is your prayer life. ”

5) Discipline of my spirit

“I have to continually guard my spirit.”

“We impart beyond our words. We impart what’s in our spirit.”

6) Discipline of honesty

“The opposite of honesty is hypocrisy.”

7) Discipline of my time

TESTIMONY — raised an orphan

Kevin can say that since he became born-again: “No wasted years!”

Kevin Conner: Doctrine Determines the Health of the Church

Kevin Conner on the Believer’s CONDITIONAL Security: “OBEDIENCE IS the very law of SECURITY for all created beings. There can be NO SUCH THING as UNCONDITIONAL security.” — WARNINGS against backsliding SHOW that the security of the believer is conditional upon obedience and faith • What God has provided in Christ man must receive and apply • Divine SOVEREIGNTY *and* human RESPONSIBILITY meet together in the great redemptive plan • Christ is “the author of eternal salvation unto all them that OBEY him”(Hebrews 5:9) • Upon HEARING and FOLLOWING the Shepherd they receive eternal life and will never perish • AS HE OBEYS the Word of the Lord his SECURITY against backsliding and apostacy is FULLY GUARANTEED

 

(video) John Burton Interview: Call to “radical, wild prayer” – in the spirit – meeting for 2 hours

Call to “radical, wild prayer” at 17:20!!!!!!!!!

Something terrible happened when our church stopped having group prayer, praying in the Spirit, decades ago. It’s been dead ever since, so many don’t even bother going anymore, including myself. They don’t want truthers.

False doctrine then crept in too, big-time! Sick!

Radical, group prayer, dealing with demonic forces, praying perfectly in the Spirit is a HUGE part of the solution.

CLOWNS Instead of SHEPHERDS Entertaining the Goats — LAUGHING to fill the VOID since the HOLY Spirit left

Laughter and joking around to fill the void since the Holy Spirit has departed because the pastors aren’t leading the people into holiness anymore — not being holy themselves — and therefore disqualified:

Our Focus Should Be Jesus’ Focus – To be ‘ONE’ with each other in Him THAT THE WORLD WILL KNOW! (John 17)

WHAT OUR FOCUS SHOULD BE:

I got this word from God for a church founder in Anchorage, 25 years ago, while getting ready to discuss with the then, head pastor what I had recently been shown about why God couldn’t move in our church.

It says a lot about what needs to happen for real Christianity and full revival to occur. And this is also a salvation issue: “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.” (Romans 8:1)

This is also the prophecy that inspired my NOHATE license plate:

Aug, 9,1990

“Our eyes are full of sawdust. We can’t see clearly to see the kingdom. There is MIGHT and there is POWER and there is GLORY, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to feel his hurt deeply and say kind words of salve that heal their souls.

[___] can do this. This is vital. They are necessary. For he must do this for healing to occur. He is a man of integrity in many ways.

Fear must decrease. Love must increase. He will fight and he will win the battle over the stronghold of fear and unforgiveness, sayeth the Lord.”

My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy: “There is might and there is power and there is glory, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to…”

 

Abbott Loop’s Former Symbol: “Except a grain of wheat fall into the earth and die, it abideth by itself alone; but if it die, it beareth much fruit”

This used to be our church’s theme and symbol, when it still had life: (photo) Abbott Loop CC Cross: We MUST Die In Order To Live!!!

Update: I’ve been told that this cross did not survive the March-2012 roof collapse.

It had been moved from front and center to the west wall, which took the biggest hit.

Someone should resurrect this theme.

Unless the people (especially the leaders) die to self, churches cannot survive the demonic onslaughts, and will bear no fruit that will remain.

Things Dick Never Said: “Turn in your Bible to Acts 24:16 — I also practice ALWAYS having a CONSCIENCE VOID OF OFFENSE toward GOD and MEN”

Time is running out — and people have the right to see the real thing!

– –

Paul worked out his salvation through fear and trembling, running his race to win — being able to say:

“Herein I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” – Acts 24:16

I got this while preparing for a talk with Rick on Aug, 9,1990, regarding the founder, My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy:

“Our eyes are full of sawdust. We can’t see clearly to see the kingdom.

The Welsh Revival of 1904-05 by J. Edwin Orr: A Countrywide Asbury-like REVIVAL! The 4 Points: #1Confess any known sin, and put any wrong done to man right again. #2 Put away any doubtful habit. #3 Obey the Spirit promptly. #4 Confess your faith publicly.

“Paul’s Elders’ qualifications revisited: What does ‘BLAMELESS’ mean? — Most pastors are biblically disqualified

We must have:
No Condemnation now so No Condemnation when we meet Jesus face to Face — Hearts pure, smiling so big!!! FREEeeeeeeee———–DOM!!!!!!!

Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, butACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.”

Lukewarm Comedian Pastors: “Repent or Hit the Road!”

PAUL ‘Always’ RECONCILED!

“I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience VOID OF OFFENSE toward God and men.” – Paul – Acts 24:16

Paul was elders’ qualifications “blameless — “ALWAYS” right with God and people. He led by example, doing what he taught others to do.

Paul worked out his own salvation through fear and trembling, running his race to WIN — RECONCILING. He maintained a clear conscience and a clean heart — unlike many who now manufacture hype, because they don’t have the anointing, neglecting holiness — refusing to admit they were wrong and apologize…. But God will not be mocked. We will reap what we sow!

“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” – Heb. 10:31

“Let not many of you be teachers, my brothers, knowing that we will receive heavier judgment” (James 3:1 — there is no judgment in heaven)

“..for the COWARDLY … SINNERS, … and ALL LIARS, their part is in the LAKE THAT BURNS with fire and sulfur….” – Rev. 21:8

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ WILL ENTER into the kingdom of heaven; but he who DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER who is in heaven.”  (Mt. 7:21)

Effects of the WELSH REVIVAL 1904-05: Whole communities were radically changed FROM DEPRAVITY TO GLORIOUS GOODNESS. The CRIME RATE dropped, often to nothing. THE POLICE had little more to do than supervise the coming and going of the people to the chapel prayer meetings. THE UNDERGROUND MINES echoed with the sounds of PRAYER and HYMNS, instead of nasty jokes and gossip. People who had fallen out BECAME FRIENDS AGAIN!!!!!!!
