In today's episode Nikita has good friend Frank Shelton in studio to discuss his new book "Urgency, Heaven or Hell?" and more of what God has done in his life and ministries.
This is Rodney from the masculine journey podcast. We explored manhood within Jesus Christ your chosen Truth Network podcast starting in just a few seconds. Sit back and enjoy it, share it, most of all, thank you for listening and choosing The Truth Podcast 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 night in your tagteam partner Noah Kita call. It's time to welcome back to another episode of its time to what man off the map showing the cuticle off no longer the Russian nightmare. Now all the devils nightmare storming the gates of hell than what an appropriate guess I have in studio with me today.
I'm sitting here with a copy of his book in front of me, urgency heaven or hell with her? Break shelter Junior welcome back to the show, Nikita. I'm honored to be with you, but you're one of my absolute favorites and by the way your endorsement of the book Natalie set the table means the world. So thank you for putting your stamp on all man. I did endorse it did not yeah okay I had a rip repercussions from it is too late to turn back now it's clearly well for that's awesome Frank. What I appreciate you being a student. We had you had your calling last time because you live in Maryland right outside of Washington right outside Washington in and tell our listeners just briefly just about your family yes so I was born on Capitol Hill.
Don't hold it against me and I was going to go to politics preacher protect the president and my families than all three pursued all three God used all three, but in 2007. I felt like the Holy Spirit was hinting I can use you more out of Washington then and we need some godly leaders in DC but I stepped out my family were five generation DC police in Washington and I stepped up my faith without a single booking without retirement without health insurance and to leave 20 years with the government like it that exists was a step of faith. That's a step of faith and doubt. We went from protecting presidents to I started preaching in pulpits, and I knew even in 07, there was a sense of urgency and I served and for white houses is that it was an honor of both parties, but I really felt like we needed to revive the church house we needed men and women to get excited in their house and God was coming sooner rather than later and that I stepped out and that's when I had the honor to connect with you shortly after we met on a cruise in the Bahamas with praise Fest ministries and God has been good so I just think God honors faith and he honors fortitude, but I just really believe presidents come and go but the king is on his way well and and you know you you kind of breeze right over that, but as far as your family history but your family and police protection goes back to the days of Abraham Lincoln like legit yet my ancestor handcarried Abraham Lincoln across the street from Ford's theater.
Good Friday 1865 and you know a while back I had the privilege of you were so gracious to host me at your home and you'd open some doors for me to minister up there in Maryland and we did a men's breakfast and ministered in your church or home church, and you hosted me and you also took me out a little excursion to Dr. Samuel Mudd's whole correct who treated John well explains off the hooks that was experienced as I love history yesterday and that was an experience. But you left out an important critical part of your story here you have a lovely bride. Yes, Ruth Miss Ruth Billy Graham had a Ruth that I have arrived today. I went with on the road and boy and we all love you. Your goal as yes yes and and then when Andrew was little baby Ruth. But anyways I hate this is all another sermon, but he was born the hour Obama became president.
While Andrew yeah Andrew Lincoln we were going to name an angiogram after my old boss milligrams will give us a couple example this is Dr. Graham and today I'm at the light not only listen to one show its Nikita Coelho and Mama I'll send you some little Billy Graham. That's all the address you leap ruptured about them. It will take 2 to 3 minutes believe my the buses will wait you come forward as you give your heart to Christ and the voices that you will stop right there. That's right you just love you love your family, so I know what you are awesome. They're still talking about your ministry well and uses you everywhere you go well and likewise that's what I think bonds us together is is everywhere you go in. You know you're you're in studio because you are you locally in the Winston-Salem area with the studios located you travel all over currently doing conferences here and now what what what you Were in town with our mutual friend Pastor Todd Falco dear friend.
We met at Gardner Webb. He played football school together. I sure didn't you know he was living it, then he's doing it big now and I'm also friends with a mutual friend of ours Clayton King. We all came out at Gardner Webb together while Clayton turned out pretty good. He did he say save his own little impact on the kingdom Clayton and I prayed two years in Africa. 200,000 Nelson Mandela soccer stadium so he's a dear friend. But no, Todd is amazing and that he just means the world to me and he played football.
Yes, he did a normal position he played what will position Johnson stated that defense event defense event like tight and so would knock them on a flat on his back saying, for the record, yeah. He was a Pentecostal back then it was all he talks about how to capitalize on the office seeker laid hands on the overdoing of a fall conference and I in a revival and seen several people but that's what this is one of many conferences and an engagement is the things that you do right. Oh yeah, yeah, and I'm also on a national initiative combating human trafficking are tickly with young people, and in your familiar with swot Matthew Dunaway sports world against trafficking we been working with Ray Lewis from the Baltimore Ravens Hall of Famer your friends thing yourself in the process of putting together a movie. I don't think people realize how dangerous and how real this epidemic is stealing kids not in my delicate, human sex trafficking correct that epithet. Yeah, the real race for is not black versus white.
The real slavery is actually stealing kids at a Walmart Maryland of my home state is number three on the East Coast for most traffic children and from the Florida to New York four-door 95 N. and South Maryland. You just grab your back on the interstate and the FBI says if you don't catch him again in 24 hours shall never see them alive and the movie taken with Liam Nielsen is very real and its role and we got a wake-up part of that southern border problem is not only allowed 2 million unvented people coming and they're automatically registering to the left. It's opening up that hope can word of under H trafficking right it's evil were dealing with the battle of the blood Jesus shed his blood to forgive us of our sense to make us free, but other people, the demonic agenda preys on innocent people's blood for the satisfaction and gratification.
It's dark and it's demonic. I'll bet it's happening whether they believe it and it it's in its it is.
I mean jiving enormous industry. In fact, there are is a show all on on truth radio network that that addresses that lantern lantern rescue which which these guys.
It's a is a handful of special obsessive type men and women I've met some of them yeah they would. You would want to meet them in a dark alley almost as big as one of their figure in many ways but but the whole goal. They'll go behind if you want to say quote enemy Linus Frank and they will rescue many times young girls. In this instance, no yes knowledge and women in the end it's evil right it, pray preys on all like you said the innocent and and its worldwide goal worldwide, but I think the biggest shock for a lot of people that it's actually in America yeah whatever content doesn't want talk about it or wants to turn a blind eye to a but it's as real as me pinching your yahoo are you pinching me write it out and you don't know what you have till it's gone and I news is it really reporting every case because it's almost taboo.
They're trying to pretend like it doesn't exist, right Jimmy put under the carpet Redwood or whatever else I watched the video recently and it just in reference I did know was there to be a reference that but it was it was about a young lady she's in her mid-20s now who was able to escape from North Korea and how she escaped that she didn't know it but she was 13 at the time she was able to escape into China, but what she didn't realize was it was a sex trafficking ring that that welcomed her to get out of North Korea. So she spent two years in sex slavery from 13 to age 15 in China and that she met some Christian missionaries that helped her get out of China into South Korea and eventually over to America but I want to tell you what her attitude and her perspective on life. Having grown up in North Korea that is sex slavery in China and finally attain freedom in South Korea and ultimately America.
It was her attitude was amazing and in when she was asked by the interviewer. How can you maintain such a great attitude because it would be no one would fault you for being for claiming the label of PTSD or being on antidepressants or a that she was she was. I choose to be happy. Happiness is a choice and I choose to be happy. A math class when you know the Lord, there is liberty there. There is liberty and freedom and that the word victory comes to mind while I what will share with our listeners just some of before working to get to because not only are you a phenomenal speaker and have it we can attend shows just on your history and background I could do one show just with your your more of your impressions but YOU'RE also book author will talk about that I really want to highlight that today on the show but to give our listeners or just a little more backdrop on what all Frank Shelton Junior is doing besides offering books will get to that. So what else yeah well so I have the honor I believe the church has been good going after the poor but we didn't always go after the powerful and the prominent and this would've been my third Olympics as a chaplain in 2012 have the honor to be a minister in London, England 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The guys got pictures with Kobe and Lebron and we saw 1054 people saved during the Olympics ministering to world-class athletes. You were scheduled to go with me in 2020 to Tokyo right thing called COBIT through a curve and you and I were booked in eight countries in 2020, and we were going to Israel, the Bahamas, Mexico, Philippines. We were heading around hard and and and I just for the record, I'm it's humbling when you can go from a fan to a friend. I mean, I'm still one of your biggest fans.
And if I keep eight and I will be your biggest will talk about that all the work were heading in the right direction, but I'm just saying we don't take your friendship for granted but I also for four years. Nikita have led a weekly Bible study to state senators in the state capital and I have the honor to influence influencers, ministers and members of our it's awesome yeah and and and leadership is lovely but it's lonely if you would like to place ministries Peter will send you his CDs adoration and is wrestling more and donate today. The cuticle all fear if you're 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 today at W.
C. The number one.com because you are number one what yeah what is it can be lonely at the top your head. He undertook to make some prominent powerful politicians got user platform and at the end of the day there normal people well you believe they put their pants on one leg at a time.
Just like anybody else but let me ask a question.
So either London or Brazil Rio de Janeiro real okay one, one story from one of those too late like give us a story of an hour athlete that gives the story what was some story that just leaps out at you from either one of those Olympic venues yeah will have the honor to meet at Tony Parker was married to Eva let Gloria played for the San Antonio Spurs plan for team France and he's just coming off a divorce and we had a chance to love on him.
Randy Sheppard had London had a chance to minister to Kobe Bryant which is an amazing story and you know and then there's Lebron and you know we were there when the team won the gold and that was exciting, but as they were going for gold. We were representing God.
You know they think successes you know something around their neck.
We know it's coming to faith in Christ Jesus in your heart and so you could actually not meddle in the Olympics but if you know the Lord your winter right but you could be like Carlos in 19 gold and silver, and without Christ, could still be a loser so and then 2016 in Rio. It was amazing what we sow gold medalist get saved we saw three Cooper drivers get saved one of my favorite moments wasn't just with the athletes. It was with fans. We were at the base of the Christ the Redeemer statue. One of the seven wonders of the world overlooking beautiful beaches of Brazil and this massive monument they would pay $30 a piece all day long to go up and see a statue of the Savior, but they went, taking salvation for free and even lost agnostic, atheist people all day would wait in line almost as if an amusement park to go up to see this amazing statue of Christ the Redeemer will there was a family of five that we were talking in line was an hour wait to get on the train to the top and I was with Randy Sheppard and he starts spending about an Randy as you know, was plain he played with Michael Jack Jordan back in the day on a basketball team at summer camp and then there was another guy who's in the Guinness Book of World Records. He spun 27 bowls at one time he has this contraption with between his legs only say I mean okay let's just say we have a ball together, but the bottom line is they started doing their thing and we start sharing the cost and we were expecting some pushback while we let a family of five husband wife, three kids all took place at the base of the statue and then an hour later when we saw that we saw them underneath at the feet of Jesus and I offered to take a picture and I was crying because when I took the picture they only knew a statue an hour before but now thanks to the grace of God. They knew the real say they knew the Savior and we took a picture of their under the arms of Jesus. And that was worth the flight alone and you could see the hero my form looks like Don King. It standards it right it is gone is getting a lot of hearing. I met some amazing stories bullet let's let's transition you so you not only an incredible evangelist and and I know we could talk again all day about story after story of how many people you seen come to Christ in your ministry which is worldwide.
Give Frank Shelton global love the name of the ministry. Frank Shelton global you travel worldwide share the good news in the gospel, but you're also a book author and I have sitting before me your latest piece of work which just look here just pretty cool.
Can the back, you've got your hot how how to get to heaven.
10 most wanted over 500 pages know that might scare somebody off. What is it so it's a great read urgency what why the title urgency heaven or hell. The last two years I knew we were in the bottom of the knife we were in the top of the night, speak, and almost like a woman who was getting up at 38, 39, her biological click sticking she's probably thinking Lord of him and have a baby it's probably about now and the conference that were preached in North Carolina this week and is literally called now or never. You know were so late in the game that now is the time to not only get right with God. We need to swing for the fence and if the pandemic showed us anything when our sports stadiums were empty in Hollywood stop filming when everything crashed and when the smoke settled in the dust cleared, I felt like it was Jesus was the only one still standing and it was almost like with tears I can hear them say can you hear me now, and sometimes it takes the world to stop before we start really focusing what matters most. I've been saying for years were so busy playing checkers that the real battle is that the chess table you know we been fighting for years okays and Emmitt Smith or Barry Sanders.
Is it Lebron or is it Kobe is it Elvis or the Beatles as it Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey who had the better voice visit Auburn or Alabama. I me were so busy fighting over Biden and Trump that the real battle is the Lord first. Lucifer and Satan verse, the Savior, and you're going to heaven. Are you going to hell.
If Satan can get us distracted and divided working at die in the temporal but the real battles at the eternal, and I think now we got a graduate to the grown-ups table and really think what matters most.
And I think I gave us a space of grace to see his face. I mean he could came back last year. America was not ready. The churches were not ready so when we were booked in 10 countries and 12 months. You and I do in eight of them together when the bottom fell out I was on my way to preach in Pakistan the week the Corona hit and I was going to preach to 100,000 Muslims 10 miles from where they killed Osama bin Laden and they told me you can come but you may not come home and I was flying by myself. The Pakistanis say why would you go. There was a sense of urgency in my spirit, and Muslims need Jesus were an evangelist and he didn't tell me to play it safe. He told me to preach Jesus saves. So went that fell apart my friends on Facebook, said man, you gotta write a book your years in Washington, I got an award at the United Nations you seen some things you have a gift to connect the dots and in five weeks Nikita I typed 235 pages in five weeks but then all hell went through in three successive Saturdays right before the book was to be going to print for editing. One Saturday, Bam, my car died the second Saturday I'm preaching against Microsoft, Bill Gates, the doctor found sheet and my 235 page book was deleted from my computer vanished famously Microsoft and started downloading an application that I didn't even ask for, and the irony is the only file to be gone was the 235 page book had to start all over again. So the week before my car died the second week. My book died in the third Saturday coming out of my house. I was barefoot at 7 AM. I was depressed felt like my best friend died dots and walks off some steam and I cut myself and I looked in a 4 foot snake was called on my step in my garage and he bit me coming out of my house and three Saturdays I got a dead car at that book, and I'm looking if it's poisonous, it's either a dead author of a dead snake so I will you now to give away heaven had to do it all over again. And when it came tocome out in October right before the election, but I wanted to be pro-Jesus, not some pro-candidate and good because what we need is the gospel in God more than anything else. But having said that, when it finally came out. I can see his hand because you and I talked a lot about it.
From October to June. I learned so much more about the vaccine I learned so much where we were with the government and I was able to add some stuff that would have not been in this book, but when it came out this summer. It's the number one new release and all of Amazon under Christianity in the evangelism and I just checked in the whole nation side. Number 17. Right now were right ahead of Duck Dynasty and it's pretty interesting. I don't know what God's doing, but I just really believe people are really trying to think there may be more to this life and in my ready to make out what it is that's what anyone gets a copy of the book that's really what it's going to enlighten them to write you is is one it's got a work work where you noted testing of your hot work where you currently stand yourself you it's very enlightening to me all the different things you put in here. The research that went into this just the. The war against it actually have the will that you just described to know the challenge of of actually getting it out there and in all that you went through.
I'm not surprised that it is ranking right up there on top of Amazon sales.
It's a fascinating read for people. I will say this I am so one lady I never once told anyone is 500 pages is my surprise I don't like to read it. I don't like the right so I'm more surprised and I don't want to scare anyone because most people like a short read. I got three quick compliments. One lady said you know it's 525 pages because I'm at page 500 and I'm actually disappointed that I'm almost done with the book and wanted to continue the lady running for governor New Mexico. She says I can't put it down and I've been quoting it in my speech is on the road that's a blessing. The greatest compliment I got without name and the name of a 40-year-old pastor 40 years in the ministry calls me 1031 night crying and she was saying that I knew some of your story, but some of the setbacks that you went on the road a step forward to step back and the enemy attacking you. She said Jesus save my soul.
But this book urgency saving my life is that I was get ready to quit the ministry wall and this is when a shot in the arms, spiritually speaking the same again.
So praise the Lord urgency and they can find it on Amazon and and how can they find out more about shelving global yeah you now that Frank Shelton.com – just thank you for your listeners. Thank you for your leadership. Thank you for your friendship and bandits in honor to be on studio with you today. What is honor to have you in it. Hope you are as fascinated about listening to some of Frank's story is is I am hearing it in some of it out but I just it never gets old this and this manners fueled and full of even more stories so will have to Frank will have to have you back on the man up showing who you are.
You are the poster child for manning up. Thank you.
You have manned up and I know you take a lot of a lot of flak for the book on some levels, but you know what, that's just part of what part of the part of the journey right you persecuted me, they will persecute you, that hated me, they'll hate you and I'm reminded of them reminded of something else right when I look at urgency heaven or hell I have this picture.
I sure sometimes and part of one of my sermons that she's got three of his minions in front of him and he's like, hey, what the what you what what you planted to pull people keep people from heaven and implement the hell the first minion goes on to tell him there is there is no heavenly goes that will work out. Got to put inside every man you know that the desire, the longing for an eternal home. He looks at the second minion and he goes, what about you what you're planning goes well. He thinks remotely was to tell him there's no hell is not going to work. You really gotta do is look around at the world in which their living.
Then he looks at the third one goes what your plan. This one thinks for a moment. This minion and he goes I'm just going to tell him there's no hurry, which ties in with the book urgency.
There is no hurry, who I like that one yeah will pull many to hell with that one. Go tell them there's no hurry. You got your whole life before you surrender to Jesus. Go party go off to college no sleep around. Go have sex go to all the you get you plenty of time. Go get married, go have children. Go get a job, retire that you know that there's no there's no urgency there's no hurry to give your life to Jesus. And so, if you're listening today and you're listening to some of Frank's true one. I want to encourage go out by a copy of urgency on Amazon and buy a copy of her and she read his book and then secondly if you don't know Jesus. I hope that this conversation today has put an urgency in your spirit to realize that there is a hurry because there's no telling when Jesus is going to come back. There's there's there's no signs for the rapture and that his second coming, so pay attention. Surrender your heart life to Jesus today.
