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 that work.

This is the Truth Network men are being set free by Christ all over the land of the Lord is using a former amazing world champion wrestler. The name of the cuticle of the Russian nightmare.

This guy is moving like just a moving target. He's the devil's worst nightmare. The cuticle off. We are at the Kansas City barbecue factory I've never done a show from inside here. It's a little bit loud, they all kinds things out about looking at a neat plate. What did you order so that looks just unbelievable I are carnivores or have your be carnivore get the 33 meets Ray does, you will be beside yourself out more than I can certainly eat in one meal so I will be dividing this one up like you not try to be like a lightning bolt right of you, you know, so I tended to stay in one place. To my dad is quoted as saying in the past Sunday. Don't let in the grass grow your feet and I'm like you're exactly right that so my goal, you know, especially in centering to focus my time and attention on men specifically is is posting there really. Local churches host conferences called man up and it ties into the man up radio show and podcast and soon to be TV show the map show is II got a host of conferences upcoming back got a huge one in MorningStar ministries support of South Carolina August 25. Of the 27th with thinning credible.

I mean a phenomenal lineup of speakers including no less than NBA All-Star Elwood W. Superstar Lex Luther will renowned evangelist Frank Shelton, Dr. Rick Joyner Chris Reed Lieut. Gen. Jerry Boykin the Benton Brothers. I mean it's incredible lineup of speakers and coming up man camp man camp.

What is man camp. That's a five faecalis were men. Small groups gathered together to be able to really do this to empower Stu to equip to teach to train but then to deploy them back home to be better than they are right now godly men godly husband and godly fathers. That's the goal of what I'm doing is the cuticle off color for Christ ministries man camp ministries all over Instagram Facebook. He staggered me all the time. Send me messages. He loves Jesus. He's a Russian nightmare cuticle of a never forget the sermon illustration Dr. Tony Evans gave a puzzle that survey were put together. There was one missing piece in the puzzle in the missing piece.

It was a family was that the mom and the kids know that there is a missing piece was the dad when someone found that puzzle piece and then put it in their Dr. Evans and I'm this is a rough paraphrase McNair with me. He said when you fix the man fix the family when the man comes a crisis like a plus % the whole family comes Lord he goes to church the opposite university. It is the universe that is no other family which we want them to come to Lord but you reach the dad when you're trying to reach men to wake up single men married and divorced in ministry when young men.

This is gonna passion God is put on your heart and cuticle off tells why intelligence rose is going well because I feel as though over the last since last couple years. I feel the last really couple 334 decades. The men have been emasculated under attack the enemy is, against the family, the nuclear family get the man out of the house to your to your very point get the man out of the house and and many times the family just unravels and/or falls apart, or the children end up in a counseling Session somewhere because of what happened in the breakup of the family. So the more we keep the family unit.

Together, the more we can empower men to be again be godly men, godly husband, godly fathers of the greater the greater the result in impacting our society around us. And that's Michael cuticle off you are a living testimony that one of my favorite parts and hear you speak. I can't hear enough is your testimony not seen. I was watching wrestling all the time every day, maybe sometimes three hours a and going to start Kate in degrees because it was all my buddies big Bob and Fox and all the dudes all grown up watching the cuticle of the Russian nightmare to snappy one half the only writer take out all four horsemen with once we once learned sickle one missing about 112 signals yet all down even flare your adjusted dominant force when you are even more dominant force now for Christ and I just love to hear about how this big old strapping Russian man with massive biceps, massive chest in a breaking every record lifting wise tell us how God got hold you and change that inside and turned you into a son of the father of the living God would save me from the inside out. That's key is not from the top down is not from the head down is from the heart up and so change me inside out transformed me in a night you you were just given an illustration of a puzzle with a missing piece well I came to realization.

After leaving wrestling that something was missing in my life and what was missing was a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and so was almost I've visualized.

I visualize what he was say that puzzle that that there's a picture of me, but my heart is missing. That's the missing piece in my puzzle was my heart and once again my life to Christ that completed the puzzle. My heart was restored and says he takes a heart of stone. You and puts a heart of flesh in you. And so God put a heart of flesh, and he put his spirit Holy Spirit in me and that is made all the difference that that surrender that yielding of my life and my heart to Jesus Christ at an altar. 17. October 1983, set me on a path course that in a million years I never would've dreamed that never would have dreamed I have ever radio show and tutorial network podcast a TV show coming up on MorningStar TBI. I just never would. All these things because of a wrestling career here I am in for those people that that that were like you. You had everything you had all the fanfare you had millage all over the world. You came to go to Russia will get mobbed by fans your son and things are going to want your want your photo ops under Christian radio partner here. I probably could barely get a word in all these people fawning over you. We know this is been the story of your life for decades yet for someone out there that has it all. Jesus said, you gain the whole world was a profit a man to gain the whole world but loses his own soul Thursday will listing you may have all that they got that family had a two car garage and got plenty.

The bank legality education, but they're missing something like you are missing.

Talk about how important it is to find it all in Jesus dealt well with a quick funny story to your point on I've been having some notoriety around the world. True story. You can't make this stuff up myself in a in a restaurant in the million dollar man Ted DiBiase and another wrestling friending Jason Sampson were in the ruins of Petra, in Jordan and the guys who run the camels back in forth, recognize us and they went crazy and everyone wanted a picture with the Russian nightmare.

The million dollar man in the ruins of Petra Jordan right so just one illustration of how wrestling is been had an appeal universally worldwide. For whatever reason.

Okay the camel guys of Petra. Okay on that note that said, many of my friends Lex Luger. The total package staying icon sting wrestlers thing that is good on the list Magnum TA my nemesis back to the wrestling days, Shawn Michaels, HB K, one by one by one of all come to faith in Christ because they realized all the success in the world you climbed that that mountain and you get to the peak without Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. You recognize all the bottles and bling and in it all the fanfare and success and money still leaves you empty inside. You can be successful, but you're always good to be unfulfilled, and the only thing filled the void is that personal relationship with Jesus Christ. To learn more.

Talk about being here camel city barbecue which by the way he is right. It Is My Favorite Pl. in Winston-Salem to go but consider this, consider the New Testament of Jesus is hundred 32 public appearances 122 were in the marketplace of 52 parables Jesus told 45 had a workplace context of 40 miracles in the book of acts 39 were in the marketplace.

Jesus spent his adult life as a carpenter until age 30. Before he went into preaching in the ministry in the marketplace and for the 4% of Jesus reported teaching ministry arose out of issues posed by others in the school of daily life that he go think that the bank this is the Truth Network
