Nikita is at Man Camp, talking with camp co-founder Lex Luger and attendee Doc Camper, about the mission of the camp and the impact it has on men from all walks of life.
This is Robbie Gilmore from the Christian cargo. I am king in pursuit where we hear how God takes your passion and uses it to build the kingdom your chosen Truth Network podcast is starting in just a few seconds. Enjoy it and share it but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing the truth network.
This is the Truth Network. Once a world champion wrestler, now a champion for Christ. Once the Russian nightmare. Now the devil's worst nightmare in your tagteam partner cheetah call time and just like my peak performance partner. This is a treat for me to have A man in the house. Lex Luther Lester that you always say we are here courseware this week live And it is just such as impacting week already. Let's just you just finished up really are teaching on all the talk about spiritual body you have one of the best most chiseled physiques in the day the world of wrestling and sell your well schooled on an educated on in that area is just such a phenomenal job.
In the event of already given feedback on what a great job teach about what the Bible says what God says about you having what we set out to do the Mac Would unite, brainstorm together and in prayer and want to do somebody great events together that other people had ever so beneficially always felt like the balance of I was a spiritual first and foremost, but also with the mental aspects retouch on taking every thought captive my will and emotions alone covered as well, but no one covered really take care the temple of the body as well so Bill can put all three of those together an important interplay between all those the way God designed this was a we felt was something unique we thought very beneficial and where we Soto season now. Thanks thanks be to God. He's both us to have the honor and privilege of putting it on and seeing the interest of the benefits that the guys are receiving what they go home within the with a great testimony today.
The one guys a pastor came to a previous man Add loss 70 something pounds and his wife is well as you know has a healthy lifestyle going now taking care of the body and the hear his testimony for special security visited at all that bad that the effort you and I reported for work were seen fruit from from that effort, and that him and his wife and all that path have that mindset of we really need to take care of our bodies. You know, God did. God bless us with these bodies. Now it's our responsibility to take care of them but living for our listeners. I give just a little bit about strategies we are praying into this. Think about is your back in 2015 and I was blessed to have you hundred mile roof where I could glean from the man of God for her, walked almost a year mutual… Proverbs 2717 desire one-man service Brand and you certainly have become well really might my dearest friend, but all going back to school back to the listeners so God gives us this vision and AI on about his birth to a one-day conference call man where about five hours was a five hours together give them as much information in a one-day conference this weekend in local churches, local communities, just to reach out to call that likely appetizer isolate to get the Kaiser at that conference that would challenge a right to say it if you want to really dive deeper into this entrée in the desert and and even the cherry on top. They come spend five days with us at band camp and of course there's a you know we do give guys a lot of information even over the course of those five days. But as your making reference to the stories were now hearing it and as we basis our first Thessalonians 523 right whole in spirit, soul and body and soul what they like like for you and I and I know you guys love being here, and interacting with you and I and beat them against glean from your wisdom. I watched elections April 23, 2006 when you first rented your life.
The Lord man I just been a privilege for me to watch you just just grown leaps and bounds all promises out there.
What what has been one catalyst that is helped you set a minicamp. What is been one campus and hope you grow as a man of God, which is well. First and foremost, the God Jesus our Lord and Savior of the consecration process happens to him and the Holy Spirit, to know we still have flash put Holy Spirit become stronger and stronger as we get disciple you Meg you mentored me God's placed. Also met a guy like you and start ballet DC basket. I could go on so many names of people disciple being important to me and watered me in my roots go deep and strong and very thankful guys know that place people like you in my life and that's been a big part of it so very thankful for that well and it is us just nobody over the years and spend lots lots of time together even when we were living together was that a lot. We spent lots of time travel on the roads together and and I know looking back all the basket is operating in the talk about laying the foundation of your life. Anyone wants to an interesting day and I made reference to your chiseled body and that I say that it also best to seek really. I feel far behind my friend.
Well I was Russian nightmare.
I was the 4% body.
I was close but not so sure. Well I'll always marvel that tenacity, but your discipline and I don't even talking today to the guys about your regimen give you guys updated for Q&A and Abbasid you guys were on the road 300+ days a year.
How to best get in the gym how to best take care yourself like that.
Well, you're very distant and this person which is why we relate I think so well because every discipline person as well, but you've taken about from my observation, you've taken what you did training your physical body and training those muscles. Yes, I understand he has the basket stock.
Fortunate to be a part of this journey with you, but you still had this you still had it. Implement discipline in order to grow spiritually and done that. Seems like you've taken that that same application in the gym and out done that with your with your walk with Jesus. I'd like to think in the flesh. There's a direct correlation but for me I was succeeding in life. Prior to Crapo 2006 and the natural my natural talents and abilities we all have been. We can go from a worldly perspective very far with that. So yes, I was very disappointed driven type A, but once again you my testimony. I was struck something really missing time seems I have my life became a train wreck.
So until April 26 23rd of 06. I give my life to Christ that the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit entered an alarm with mentor such as you got refocused on my spiritual muscle, so to speak, and exercise them first thing in the morning with my person. Pastor Steve my initial decide matters literally turn around the door to the gym go all away. Second, go to the gym. That's why always did. First, do a little prayer of the Bible study and the gradual devotional before you go to that really set the foundation in the groundwork for my development would looks like discipline but really I was implemented through the Holy Spirit through the men get God placed in my life.
What I really get the credit through now we I know a lot of really talented people who go a long ways in life like in their careers or different aspects of your life and of their own will or discipline, but there's nothing that can compare with the supernatural strength of human after my spinal surgery. God show me them, his grace will always be sufficient for me. My power works best we can, so I discipline my strength everything I gathered together as a nonbeliever.
God show me that when he takes over when declare him as our Lord and Savior that no matter what we go through basically which is my my main aspect that accentuated back then that right virtually we can with him working through us.
We can be like Lex Luther look like a puny 97 pound weakling that you can compare the two, even though hundred 70 pounds now and weak from a worldly perspective. I feel like a supernatural powerhouse strike that I never had. As the old Lex Luger.
The people saw in my prime on television prescribed is experiential.
You can't wish to experience it relationship with Christ that I can understand that but what you had to experience what God does in your life to really it's it's always hard to describe in words. It's great because as you speak you like to do several things like Lord, which we take this direct is well why I totally relate since it is what I hear you saying is, it is bigger for seekers and impressive looking as it was a pales in comparison to Tibbett. In my view, lacks the spiritual giant that God is the one I was Andre the giant.
He was a big man, but in my eyes. God is moving you into the spiritual giant powerhouse but as a writer to weakling which is most important aspect right anyone say fine once it's it's it's been flipped by 280° right.
Is it okay boss 100 pounds of muscle hundred 70 pounds now, but the muscleman needed a good funeral got allow that. I didn't get back out of the way that I could to become a true powerhouse writing Jesus and Jesus right that that are pretrade there. We must die to ourselves but it has honestly I do or say the flesh flesh. We managed to see the good funeral get out of God's way stuff struggled with love. We did a good funeral get out of the way. Nestlé bad talk but on struggled this message Lex. All he needs is a good funeral will be like you to put himself to death with places to 20 have been crucified the flesh is over.
I live the Christian lives. In Galatians 220 yeah, I better go to that a few times feels like you would be bola's rear its ugly head back most likely most likely you will you will never be literally nailed to crosses spikes your hands and feeders side crown of thorns put on your head like Jesus experienced. However however once you surrender your heart like Jesus, you reference a great description places to 20.
Figure out reminder of all of you might say it in the in the spiritual realm that that we can crucify are so weak we should crucify ourselves bail ourselves to that cross and died to our flesh that sets a great that's a great illustration of the great Scripture quote the other thing is you were speaking lacks talk about the early morning hours. Ed and Pastor Steve stopping you your trash before you ran off to the gym is early morning devotions and prayer. So what I'm hearing is what it sounds to me like is that really that each and every day sets the tone for your day what your past yourself before God first thing in the morning. There's how could you be a better way to start your day. What you really challenging to face out there prioritizing first time with God just sets sets the sets the thermostat on the proper setting for whatever over-the-counter out there that crazy world got the door. Well it is it if we gave it if we use Jesus as a model ICF that everybody necessarily does it. So if we use him as our model which is really why he left heaven took took off the spiritual suit put on as I like to got the dirt seat to illustrate for 33 years what it what it would look like to walk walk this journey out loving God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength greatest commandment right first and greatest models that force one thing. He also model was you can see right Scripture. I mean, he got up before the sun rose just like you usually got like four in the morning that were to get a little together. I was like good Lord is already man was overwhelmingly for now but earlybird early bird gets too early to talk about the thermostat got set your thermostat person working for my towing then you're not a thermometer. All they want all the fluctuations in temperature or challenge that we had throughout the day. Got got got certain fixed fixed charge of all that hip flexion better able to deal with the emotions of the things that can happen to us or to day interactions of people. While that's just… I got hurt like that actually ties it to man In this sense, emotions are one of the things you talk about that tomorrow emotions and how I will emotions you tell me yeah yeah my will and emotions. The soul writing what makes up the soul. Your mind, your will and your emotions. Three parts to the soul just like were three-part man body soul and spirit were three-part man, something the Trinity, God the father, God the son God the Holy Spirit, but the emotions powerful illustration Lex that the monitor versus Thursday case. If you set the tone early in the morning. We all know we can be.
Emotions fluctuate right but it is said, no matter what happens in your day.
You're able to balance those emotions that is supposedly flying off the handle. One way or the other.
God gives us the automatic third thermostat setting that's that's that's rich right there helping out as you listen. I hope you're taking notes as you. That was that was rich right there it so so you were at camp were were pouring in the span were talking about the body, soul, spirit we get others on that hit that up. Talk to Talk about different aspects of how it's impacted their lives and the last one I just talked to Jeff James so talk of a reference to how much a chance to spare so the so many takeaways from band camp here view what what you feel is it anyone more taxing than the other or for someone listening to Jimmy, the man Is all-inclusive. What would be your viewing what you say to someone considering coming to America. Why would they want to come. Well, for the reasons we've are discussed but also of the most important thing is how to manage the Beta space spiritual leader and a lot of guys may have felt like they don't have control abdicated their position in the home and we stress maximize manhood matter not not in a dominating domineering way. But God's intended role for man and woman husband-wife are able to take these teachings home actually applied to the lives of the surface of the guys a talk with differences made their marriage, their relationship with their children dictated go home empowered to be. I believe them and start to live out the man got always intended to be the purpose of planning has for your life for the first family.
Yeah, that's your illustrate exactness of the testimony heard from Bob's sons, all on this particular man camp grandfather and grandson on it and men from all walks of life is well race was not just men in ministry here. We got them from every walk of life from age 18 and all bars old as you know in the mid-70s so you know so far that attended the thermostat can be set for generations to come. Set the thermostat for future generations, right if there's a choice there writers that the Bible talks about this sins of the father to the third report generation or the blessings of God to a thousand generations so for those listening with which which would you prefer passing on blessings to a thousand generations or more, passing on your sins to the third and fourth generation. Click on that.

I came here with a specific goal wanting to hear the voice of God, and it turns out that God had me here for refinement. Okay you know I have shed a lot of sin and made a lot of concessions and work through a lot of my past and coming here.
There were still a few things that had not completely been dealt with because I kept showing up. So it's for me it's refinement Melanie and just really feeling the presence of God.
I didn't have to hear the voice but I deftly felt the present experience presents God as set some lingering things. Things are still lingering in your life.
