We are Royal had to do some serious time in jail for crime he committed what he had to learn is the practice the presence of God. When you read Joseph's story in Genesis, you find insane on a couple of occasions what the Lord was with Joseph. He was a child but his record said he tried to wake Potiphar's wife when she met with but God said you don't want and don't even worry when the timeline gets paid. If you recall, the timeline got in his mind he thought by now I should be here. You know the story when he ministered to the Kings Butler is a attendant when that man was coming out. Just do me a favor and remember me to Pharaoh and let Pharaoh know that I'm really not guilty telling the kind of integrity and character.

I have and get me out of here. I'm sure Joseph believed with all his heart. He was on his way out of jail soon as this guy gets up there to the throne gets his job back.

He's going to tell all listened as a wonderful man and telling the story how he interpreted the dream and all work out, but sometimes you're planning God's plan at two different things. All I came to tell you about your plan when you all the part that does me. The one God is all it means somebody needs to take that what you want to work out the way you thought that just means that wasn't God's way.

That's all it means don't get desperate. Don't get frustrated suddenly don't get mad at God give you the plan you plan so that we give God our deadline to get mad when you open or not you will somebody on your role look on your role and see what is somebody got a deadline you see it on their face a got attitude came church. What attitude because God did live up to their timeline all but God does things and is old when his ways are not our ways are not our thoughts and so you gotta learn to walk by faith. He thought that guy was Google right up.

I'm sure Joseph could have very well been down this heart go all the other prisoners that he was in charge of trying to keep them incurred to relieve because you know he got to tell Pharaoh about me and since I go, don't you will be surprised when they come to call me hot get ready go which will be strongly walk around all the prison Heitman. I do this time to let this time do you build nobody comes a day tomorrow.

Nobody comes tomorrow.

Nobody comes in a week.

Nobody comes in a month by month, a bit like I don't believe it know he did not go up there.

I interpreted his dream for him and he don't even have the decency one by decency. It wasn't God's will, God had a plan for Joseph and that cupbearer was responsible for bringing in the past and the people you're leaving on are not responsible for getting you to where God wants you to be and so he had to wait for two more years in jail. Imagine that he's already done a lot of time and now he got two years to do because he's thinking I don't understand how that guy could've got me. He forgot you because God only wanted him to remember when the time was right, and the time was gone be right when he himself had a dream and was troubled and said I don't know what a got a call the spooky full and his kingdom all the sorcerers and stop calling y'all tell me what this dream means, and they didn't have a word and that's when the cupbearer said all y'all gotta stop get mad at the people in your life to help you. God knows when this will help you so sorry to tell you to go to the matter because the dream had come to Rome so that I can dream and he's good he's godly and I'll let that there was a nice him out jail.

But when I'm desperate when cupbearer remembers tell him about Joseph and get Joseph out of jail. I came to tell you your timeline is in the hand of your God. He knows what he started.

He knows where he's taking you. And you gotta walk and not by sight and stop get mad at all the people around you job is the one who will win good time yourself under the hand of God is right, he will exalt you.

I came to tell you that you need understand your royalty first then you learn how to be royalty which takes you to the next descriptive word intact.

Not only am I royalty but I am holy. Where part of a holy nation, not a reason why you needed understand the concept of what is so that you can plug it in and make sense of this holy thing because instantly because the way we think we think holy we think behavior holy behavior holy behavior, but you got understand is just like royalty called to be holy before you ever start learning how to live right.

Holy by calling God calls you a thing.

Then he teaches you how to be what he called. That's the way God operates. Remember back in Gideon's day shows up and says hello mighty warrior.

Thank you, mighty warrior by behavior is not a warrior. He is by behavior. He's aware he's beaten about four years still in use.

When the angel comes he's in a wine press threshing wheat.

That's not where you thresh in a wine press thresh out in the open air where the wind can help divide the wheat from the chaff know he's in a wine press scanner the enemy got little wheat looking why because he doesn't know his calling.

Yet so he's acting like what he's always acted like an angel shows up. So let me tell the boy who use your mighty warrior and you know the story when it come to getting it took a long time to prove to him that it was God. He put now fleeces I want you if is really you, take this fleece here and I want you to make it wet around the fleece but the fleece drop and I want to have the fleas wet and everything around he trying to make God prove this is him God was so merciful he did it. Somebody all the liminal mercy right now you could've been exiled. I was old and never my forget you, but God change his mind about us when God calls you well. I will usually but you so disgusted know I love God's love is an everlasting love. He suffers along with goals, the love and I want you to know you are holy, first by calling then what you have to do is learn how to live out that calling I only by calling I write just by calling by calling about the practice of honoring God by calling. Gotta learn to live up to my calling. You see the connection have the learn how to behave Royal you are called to be holy.

When you accept Christ, he takes up residence in you by the power of the Holy Spirit look like find out next and the rest of today's message. We are royalty. Once again, here's Pastor Paul. I got a reasonably holy God who is taken up residence in me by his Holy Spirit came in the pillar of fire me and make me what God wants me to be no because you can't do what you used to do when your conscience will somebody not because you clean up your act in every way. We need to get rid of that.

I know we have songs of inspiration and background in people's will singles little getting up. So in somebody's church. I looked at my hands and I have a new one that my freedom to write nice but as well when you get saved to prove that your hand when your feet due to you got calluses you still gotta matthew got corns and bunions on your feet, you still got about salvation then change your changes. you went to your he established his residency in you by the holy spirit. the spirit comes into us and establishes the relationship. paul said to the romans whereby we cry, abba, father, daddy he makes god your daddy and my daddy is holy, so i gotta learn how to act like my dad.

i gotta learn how to be a partaker of my daddy's nature. i got a learn to put another analogy how to be a royal man is not now just megan overhears you come over here you know, we still won't call megan because you know we don't have the etiquette we supposed to have over here you know we do girls from from la but that's not appropriate anymore. we ought to give honor, even based on what she is over in our country whether we do it or not we supposed to, and her title is her warrior highness the duchess of sussex and that some that not just megan from around the home.

i know you know where you know that's who she used to be. she now has a new identity.

she is trying. this is, of sussex, if i wanted to say your you know who you are not reading it i will remember. but that's who she is she not she's now living out. gotta learn to do that which holiness, god calls you to be holy. he's not going to leave you discuss them, and he's not going to leave you doing any thing speak in any kind away your now call to holiness and where he calls you he gives you the grace and the power to fulfill the calling you and i have to learn to discipline ourselves by the help of the holy spirit and let him cultivate the fruit of the spirit in us and make us who we already are. and that's where you need to know that you are holy by calling so you gotta live it out. that's what's behind the concept of being sanctified, not a holiness boat which about being saved and sanctified what we mean is that we've learned that god through his spirit will help you clean your life and all of us need the lord to help us clean up our lives because this can be filthiness of the flesh and the spirit you can have not only wrong practices. you can have a wrong spirit. a wrong attitude was seen on church person with a funky spirit is not good.

called sl godly mmn but mean meanness and godliness, don't go together and you suppose learn how to smile which holiness which will sanctification, praise the lord learn how to put up with things you don't like it you truly sanctified some progress on site. if i did disgusted company me with smoke that we why you don't want to contact just trying to help you to sift through know where you really all you have to prove you holiness by what you don't do around me qualifies if you in my house. i got standards in my house if you will smoke that if they were going outside to sit on the porch.

whatever will walk down the street whatever so that that's not in here that makes sense. but not just because you in my midst that abandoned me in the past, all these decades i've had folk people heard me preach love sobriety.

i believe sobriety is right. i never got in the alcohol when i tried it as a youngster i didn't like it so that's not a thing for me and plus i grew up in a holiness tradition where we were taught that you couldn't be saved and drink. anyway, that was all it was extreme because i grew up in learn that some of the saints drink wine, and what have you. they drink in moderation and i learned that i figured out and sold.

when i became a pastor i would teach them. i believe your living sobriety.

but as long as you steer clear of drunkenness. it's between you and the lord whether you drink socially, or in moderation or not that's between you and jesus.

i don't want any but not yourself out if that's what you want to do so if i'm at dinner which you when you order wine or champagne. i'm not going to like i did when i was a young person's say they save and submit drinking champagne and wine is.

i learned i figured it out but as a pastor because something just don't understand is not about what i see is about what's in your heart and over the years i'd visit somebody's house and they see me coming up to their walkway and some i look at you have bottles clinker, but what you gotta figure out. it's not about people is about you when the lord five means i'm set apart only means i'm sacred, set apart the sacred uses that's the case you i told you you want a vocational bus walk with moms that had china some muscle here as we grow up in our mothers had china and some of them had a china cabinet, also we don't grow up with a china cabinet in your house china cabinet and that's where the china one and china look like a plate, but is not a plate, all for the children don't even look in their and not therefore you you don't come home from school when i grew up, and go in your mother's china cabinet that you want to baloney some you don't go get a piece of china and gold make a baloney sandwich, and put it on there and eat your mother would say had you live close. china is clams and set apart for specific purpose. that's what sanctified and holy means i'm clean and i'm set apart for god's purpose not set apart where the kids run and grab a plate or something like that.

drink kool-aid out the china did know you don't do that you get that regular little plastic cup come all summer.

yo, what yellow so mama aren't all i need some help. here that's what you drink your we grew up with kool-aid. i know y'all got all kind of stuff we we grow up. what you will read.

i'm not even my point. i gotta let you go. my point is that god has made his people shows up royalty called us to be holy and that's why live by saying your peculiar king james that your peculiar and i'm so glad that i learned that peculiar doesn't mean weird because i've been around church will know that so mama peculiar in the positive sense, which simply means special, unique, that's what you mean unique you have a translation that says your god special people or god unique people. that's just capturing a better sense of the greek word because peculiar to probably peculiar was that special, but not necessarily in a positive way in our minds never met folk that peculiar, or he so peculiar that you not pay them a compliment when you say put you in a weird kind of peculiar people. you gotta step back from you just got.

i'm not sure i will be too close to them and we still have some today i need you to know god is making you peculiar, but in his own special way and what is the implant so that we will show forth his praises as we live our life.

you are supposed to be a trophy of god's grace and just keep walking with him he's gonna make you a showpiece of his grace was sharpies of his love to make sure that you will have to see god is at work in your life you show god because is going to glorify himself, your life hallelujah thanks so much for being here for two days destined for victory message. we are royalty look for any of pastor paul's recent messages on demand pastor that's pastor and when you stop by. feel free to share your prayer request by using the contact feature at the top of the homepage when you do ask us to begin sending you pastor paul's monthly letter of encouragement. yours, at no cost or obligation. and again.
