Nothing says Christmas like a wonderful family in Asia, getting a water buffalo is like getting a farm truck while working getting the stand of the market. A water buffalo opened.

More importantly, it opens the door to talk about Jesus and nothing says Christmas better than that. Join Truth Network in supporting gospel for Asia gift and click on the Christmas critter campaign hello this is Willa Hardy with man talk radio. We all about breaking down the walls of race and denomination your chosen Truth Network podcasts is starting in just a few minutes. Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening to the truth. Podcasts network. This is good Truth Network once a world champion wrestler, now a champion for Christ. Once the Russian nightmare.

Now devil's worst nightmare in your tagteam partner cheetah call this time back once again and the devil's nightmare. Our goal all on the mad up show and my special guest today returned guest is none other than you know him least. I know him as the preacher in my shoe. Ronnie Dean out in Missouri that Shelby stayed Ronnie Dean, welcome back to the met up show on your chair.

A grand slam home run. I got all the today is good to have you with you before when on-air you know you you and said that you had mentioned that you you are fly without wings and will you do what you teach me that one day how I can fly without wings. I promise you I will break it became not only take the chair to apply without waiting that I also will get you out of either audition living on the edge having the eye of the Tiger Tiger in your tank and then I rocketed here pocket pilot outlay something at midnight. Feeding her to sit.

I receive all that you will just get this visual this picture of fly without wings of thinking maybe my guardian angels who might have wings at all that I had had it easily County head of snow white nor just clean and make note to self, Lord, I am waiting for course everyone that I read about that encountered in Angel many of them fell on their face before God. You Nada not a holy fear right but you really got their agreement at least 13 high when Aaron and Moses were confronted with something, they fell on their faces prostrate before God and I'd like to see that come back into the church in the ministry.

What well… Okay let me take on that okay so that we would. That's it. That's a good that's a good point you bring up and probably take it one step further, how about if we just see the fear of God back in society. How about we start without you here the Lord to be corrected or a godly fear. Check out that all about me that I have got is not given us the spirit of fear which is spot to nail it down to perdition, but there is a godly fear and that's what we need back in America. Our churches in our personal walk with God. Yeah, I think it well and you get on something else you would look just bubbles up in my spirit is you're saying.

That is when I consider the last luscious in the last year and 1/2 little timestamp.

This was a safe the last year and 1/2.

What pops up root. Ronnie is is that the words irrational fear and so what I've seen both in and out and answer in the set. Surprisingly inside the church is in an even irrational fear, but like you said not not not want a healthy fear of God of of all, and reverence and respect for the creator of the universe and it's more of a cowering fear.

You know, to the to the code to the culture around us understood it generalize and say to the culture around us. Everything that's going on in our call is because so many to just just cowering fear you a irrational there. I feel that correct At the grand slam homerun or pandemic and everything that is attached to it is just a fair tactic got that right not to neglect to assemble our self together and fair tactic from the devil himself also being used by government is to separate his undivided and it's totally completely control element to bring fear to all about it. It's countdown and fear family dinner out those not go out when God is the exact opposite. According to the New Testament that some of the leper Jesus pray for basically gave them an Eskimo.

You have no you reach out and touch them. He had no fear because he knew Joel Raab of the God to deal with and that he has stripes would heal the sick and got finished learning able to shake God has no fear of anything that's going on in this world. That being said, are left unsaid, and we should follow suit will advice for listeners today. What a way to open up the show all that's caught the attention of some, and perhaps even some who who have found themselves, whether intentionally or unintentionally go, cowering to a spirit of fear comes out of the enemy's camp and perhaps they can make a decision to it to to trust you and I was listening on my way to the studio today.

I was listening to to some worship music I like to do that prior to recording a lot of times and and Debbie had. It was just it was so rich and we just talk about the blood of completing the blood of Jesus right over our lives pleasing manner. Jesus over our families and we just resonated in me was matted as I was even doing that for myself just pleading the blood of Jesus over my life or just a look thank you, you know. Thank you that the blood of Jesus has cleansed me from all my sins. The blood of Jesus helps to renew my mind and give me the mind of Christ. Give me the heart of the like that of Abba of Poppa Gibby give me the harder father and and fill me with that unconditional agape love is perfect love. You think what you set perfect love casts out fear right man and noticed a lot of people quote that campsite perfect it out all fear that the word alt.there. It would not cast out, godly fear. We serve the Lord of fear and trembling and wondering you sent there about the precious blood of Jesus and pleading that the precious blood of Jesus. People will say I'm rejoicing because my sins are gone that the blood of Jesus you know will wash away their sin, but that that's that's an understatement. The reason our sins are gone is because the precious blood of Jesus has cleansed us when the blood of Jesus was applied to our soul. Sharon had to leave. Shannon couldn't say. And that's why were saying today because the blood of Jesus cleansed us and washed us in the precious blood of the Lamb. So when we were washed in the blood of the Lamb. Shannon had no choice. Sharon had to go Wells is speaking again.

I'm just I'm just that old time he saw him in the summer to get classical tiny songs you know what will wash away my sin. Nothing but the blood of what will make me whole again right. Think about those lyrics are what will make me whole again when he mean I'm not whole know because the fall of man. We were separated from God and in and apply apart.

A man died in the garden in and when they were cast out into the into the world and so only only by that personal decision, a a conscious personal decision acknowledging and recognizing we need a Savior can can we be made whole again and that of course it's all all connected to the blood speaker which Ronnie we really kinda prompted this call to bring you back on the show was a conversation we had. We had had that recently you had something let light what you you had a tremendous impact of trying to figure how to set this up something happen within your family that you share with me that was just just really impacted your own life and impacted your family's life having to do with yours son, can you share with our listeners a little bit about what what recently happened with your son. Oh yes chamfer God stepped up to the plate. The bases were loaded anywhere you are. And the ball still going. I just am so thankful you administered and that when the main bar. My son-in-law and my daughter Donna Bell and Darla Bell felt led to come back. She had been back home from Maine to Missouri in three years and she told me she said that God is dealing with me and I want a mission. I need to come back and that really a minister to my brother Fabian and I'm going to touch bases with all my family but he is the main reason I'm coming back and she was going to stay five days and she spent over three days with him personally and if they feel it in a position eight edition needed to enhance his walk with God and get with her he needed to be with the Lord and and she began to minister to a and Sunday night she was having her biggest struggle in battle with the courtship surrendering what I've been doing service at the Armadale Assembly of God in Arnell Missouri and my son, her brother preached and Fabian son Brandon was there to sell for high school and set right up front and he went to give the altar call and we sure come around the altar. Brandon gloriously got say a lot I mean is if he got off the red statement of Bell and he received a blood transfusion from Calgary and as far as the east is from the last is Shannon had been removed. Then it really stroke rejuvenated and God took a pan of light gifted in the geek of his son, Greg warm-blooded and Earl Brandon's name in the Lamb's book of life, and I called dollar bill and told her that and she immediately told Fabian to Fabian your son Brandon gloriously got saved in the service.

Your brother Ronnie preached and she said he broke that everything that would be in difficult and was really our suddenly the sky that's totally 100% brass became a blue sky with birds flying the rainbow was there said in that in the clouds and she said dad everything changed when you called and told me that Brandon Fabian sought a got saved needing to buy a car and have marginal credit and considering using buy here pay here that's worse than taking the Russian sickle Winston-Salem motorcars will put you behind the wheel of a car you can rely on while helping rebuild, repair or establish your credit score conveniently located on Silas Creek Pkwy. in Winston-Salem. Be sure to check them out because you are number one S. Pinot Gris where he needs any final tile from the time ran when his carbon right from beginning to end and stop number one in the reader's was the one that had more thing.

This is the goal that I want to thank women support for supporting my new show man on Saturday afternoon at 1230 truth that were so so.

From our conversation adjusted to the capital S what you just said for our listeners so your grandson could save gloriously saved at the altar your daughter is in town, ministering to his dad. Your guests on her brother K follow the bouncing ball their people add and in sharing that news with Fabian with you. Darla Bell shares that news it it it correct the cracks that the hardness of his hearts and cracks it enough. The doors open for Jesus to come in and then gloriously save Fabian them. I hear that right yet.

It's a letter perfect, medically perfect grand slam homerun. That's exactly what happened. So here's what's beautiful about that is for something can father-son K for use son and grandson but father-son now share the same birthday lately, like the real right and you and I know many times that I have said to many people in an end in our dear friend the whole package. Lex Luther relates with this as well as our spiritual birth like what Jesus said a Nicodemus, don't be surprised when I tell you, you must be born again, for no one will see the kingdom of God without a rebirth without surrendering our heart and our life to Jesus and and receiving him as Lord and Savior receiving the Holy Spirit we remove it hard to still replace it with a heart of flesh. And so our spiritual birth for us is way more bored and honestly they might do my physical birth I celebrate that more than my physical birth and eternal When you're in the city where the Lamb is aligned with Jesus name up on your four head and a new name that only you are familiar with and every demon an evil spirit and the devil himself fry like all great now forever and ever. You're going to be in the city where the Lamb is the light and that new birth is what put you there. So so father-son to gloriously save the same day they share the same spiritual birth date. Now your thrill because it's your your your son and your grandson and God is thrilled because it's in. In his view to prodigal sons that have come home and let me ask this as well. I know you said the grandson was a sophomore in high school just for listeners. How old was held this Fabian in August will be 4242 so I want I want our listeners to understand something. It does matter what age you are. Now we know.

We do know statistically that the older person gets. It is harder to get more callused and more hardened by life and it is harder you go to. We either win somebody to Christ or somebody to surrender their life to Christ.a possible but it is harder and so you know as evangelist which we all our everyone of us has a ministry of reconciliation. Gordon second Corinthians 55 7320 so so just recognize even as your listening out there. Whether you're you have a diploma from a seminary school or or you your changing out the faucets and ill as a plumber or rewire the house as an electrician or what it whatever it is you're doing. You know that you you have a a ministry and and can when people people to the kingdom and I'm reminded something else Ronnie that happened recently. Not not not long ago at a man camp in our listeners every talk about me.

I can't quite a bit at the end and it had we had a man at man camp was 45 years old, 45, who had to listen been in church all his life by his own his own testimony I been adrift my whole life gone to the kids camps gone to youth camps.

You know Matt sure it's right but by his own acknowledgment.

He had never surrendered his life to Jesus. 45 years in church basically is whole life and at the night at man That he that he revealed that in August at a conversation with them as I do. Do you want to you want to surrender your life to Jesus and he just looked at me and said yes I do.

And he did.

He did that night on tell you when it's the real deal like what someone genuinely encounters Jesus, everything changes. I mean, starting with his countenance Ronnie. I mean his mean if there was just a glow about a guy like Moses coming out the mountain when he encountered God in the mountain. There was a glow and got a smile from ear to hear the rest of the week and here's the rest of that story. The Paul Harvey to that story is pastorate message me a couple weeks later after man camp and said hey just want you to know Shane and his entire family are getting water baptized, and and he is tithing to the church for the first time ever ready to get on so far. Listeners evidence of a changed life and I don't want you you came to me.

I You attended man camp up to take a minute and shift gears and just take a minute and and you know for some of you want the mentalist out the old ladies is not theirs got a husband or a brother or dad or what. Why would a guy want to come to me and Take take a minute and just share with our listeners will name thing that I noticed camp. We started you know around 4 o'clock on Sunday and you meet these people I believe there was at least 20 there that time I will be with their and that you you you look at the menu middle for the first time, and some of you knew they were you this new thing I between Sunday at 4 PM and Friday and I everything in their life that needed to be touched at been touched in glass and steel by the Holy Ghost. The precious blood of Jesus, the love of God and the fellowship there in the leadership of you and your staff and I was most impressed by the one that is Bentley was in my cabin and each night when we go to bed. There was a change. They turn the lights out Summit Avenue their phones with the light reading the Bible or a flashlight. Are they be texting there there why their kids, their family and letting them know that the deep change in their life and that to me man camp changes people. It changes them for the best weakling when the rapture takes place will be changed and and God is dealing with changing people from evil to good from the darkness to the light from guesswork to something positive from a lackluster of faith to be drowning in faith in pleasing God, I would encourage anyone of any change whatsoever that qualifies to come to man To go and know you're gonna leave a better person than what you like when you came that state you Ronnie that's a great just minutes and add just help our listeners understand me you been in ministry for over 50 years in a year you know your your 70+ years young right and so and so, still hungry and thirsty for for more of God in and so did, regardless of of of your age.

I remember that first night listening to him talk to the other people you know there's this thing is called posing men do, especially when they first meet other men and just quietly sit in the other bed because you like Ronnie. I came in just as a camper and I wanted to I wanted to chase after the heart of God for what I just be unknown by anybody right and so I experienced that. But then I wish you could've heard that man two nights later. I mean went when he came to bed that night and the way he talked to him the questions he asked.
