(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) Toby Keith’s ‘Angry American’ Anthem at Trump Inauguration: ‘Courtesy of the Red White and Blue’ — “WE’LL PUT A BOOT IN YOUR A** IT’S THE AMERICAN WAY / GOD BLESS our troops and GOD BLESS America” • Unrepentant, reverse-Christian, 9/11 warmongering continues as Donald watches and Jesus weeps – 1/19/17

“This is a serious sickness,” I believe I just heard the HOLY Spirit say.

This song just gets me! This is part of what’s wrong with country music. And to me, it’s one of the most disgusting songs ever written. It’s the rally cry and justification to annihilate a nation for something the country didn’t do to us. Then Toby publicly has the nerve to claim God’s blessing for the evil we do to them in Jesus’ name.

God is going to bless US for completely ignoring Jesus’ second greatest COMMANDment to love our neighbors as ourselves??

Because of our self-centered, superior attitude and actions, many now not only hate US for using our power to kill them. They also don’t want anything to with our Jesus, whom we claim we’re serving. Many will join Al Qaeda, or immigrate and be our enemy.

How would we like it if a much stronger country regime-changed US, killing many we love — which experts like Joel Skousen think Russia and China may someday do?!! And God won’t let it happen??

We call ourselves a Christian nation while completely ignoring Jesus’ second greatest COMMANDment to love our neighbors as ourselves if people are Muslim.

If we expect God to bless US, then we’re even supposed to love our enemies, as Jesus said — instead of taking the low road — because we can — and it felt good to the flesh, rallying together against a people “who hate US” (and now actually do).

Sean Hannity made it feel good:

The line, “’cause we’ll put a boot in your ass / it’s the American way,” is part of the introduction of the Sean Hannity radio show that is played at the beginning of each hour. (source)

Will we ever learn that Sean Hannity lies too? And why is Toby still singing this song? He should have shelved it long ago, and repented, admitting he was wrong; though, he was probably one of many who wouldn’t even look at the proof that the planes’ jet fuel didn’t take down the towers, and the hijackers weren’t even from Afghanistan, officially.

“(video) Sarah Palin demonstrates why most evangelicals dissed Ron Paul, who wanted to bring the troops home. ‘CHRISTIANS’ have TWO SETS OF BOOKS: one for US and one for THEM (“who don’t deserve rights”). THEY’re not our ‘neighbor’ whom Jesus commanded US to love as much as ourselves. Maybe that’s why most evangelicals refuse to investigate 9/11. If ‘THEY’ didn’t take down the towers…???

Why is anyone still listening, and cheering to this disgusting song that should have been shelved long ago, if we had any integrity:

‘Courtesy Of The Red, White, And Blue’ (The Angry American)

By Toby Keith

Now this nation that I love
Has fallen under attack [WTC collapse not Afghani caused, proven – ed.]
A mighty sucker punch came flying in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the 4th of July [Afghanistan – ed.]

[Chorus]
Hey Uncle Sam [Zionist controlled media did – ed.]
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shaking her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, it’s going to be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringing her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue

[Verse 2]
Justice will be served [‘Justice’??? – ed.]
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A [though Afghanistan didn’t do 9/11 – ed.]
`Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass
It`s the American way [not God’s way – ed.]

[Spoken]
God bless our troops
And God bless America [really??? – ed.]

(video) ‘O Holy Night’ – Trans-Siberian Orchestra — If we’re going to worship God then let’s really worship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember the exact moment when I first heard this song — because it blew me away!!!

About 15 years ago, I was filling equipment outside in the dark winter, ramp lights turned on, with the fuel truck at NWA air freight, which had a radio. I heard this and was stunned!!! I called the radio station when I got inside to hear who it was, and then bought the CD.

The Bible says to “LOVE the Lord, your God, with ALL of our HEART, SOUL, MIND and STRENGTH!” To me, the audio here partly achieves this. If we’re going to worship God then let’s really worship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

which was probably recorded in the studio, and the video portion was reenacted; though, a nice story. The girl had been wandering, and found wholesome truth in Christmas.

It’s not just the soaring electric guitar. Something is spiritually right here; even though, some of the musicians may not even be Christians.

The heart and soul of this likely comes from the blonde, guitarist leader, probably the guy on the left. I have this DVD too, but haven’t watched it for awhile.

Outstanding, especially the worship factor of the audio!

(music video) Leon Patillo: ‘Love Calling’

I remember playing the cassette of this album, “The Sky is the Limit” a number of times while attending seminary during the spiritually dry second time.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

I have been around you since the world began,
I have even visited you and walked upon your land,
I have known your leaders down through history,
Some have made the effort to communicate with me.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

I don’t want to harm you; it’s the last thing on my mind,
I just want to share my love with all of mankind,
When your heart is broken, and the world has been unkind, I’ll pick up the pieces and I’ll give you peace of mind.

(this is love)
(this is love calling Earth)
(come in, come in, come in)
(this is love)
(this is love calling Earth)
(come in, come in)

Scientists are seeking immortality,
Astronauts are searching the skies for our destiny,
It’s not complicated, what this planet needs: love is still the answer to life’s mystery.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
