You may think you know who you are, but do you know who you are in Christ, Pastor Paul Sheppard explains the difference. Next, as he shares his destiny for victory message. We are royalty, but first he joins me from his studio in California. Pastor I'm excited for a couple of reasons about the thank you gift we have for all those who are able to give generously in support of this program. First, is not often were able to share a video message but were doing this because I know you feel that get your hopes up is a message that everyone needs to see and hear.
Absolutely. I'm eager to share this Encouraging Word with our listeners. We all know that hope is a premium commodity these days you can find it easily at all. We look around and we see all sorts of challenges both in the world at large and also in our personal lives. As a pastor I'm I'm seeing the effects of the vicissitudes of life on my members and and I hear from listeners even in the as they share their praise reports and prayer concerns and it's just a challenging world. The bottom line is I thought this is a time for me to remind people that we've gotta get our hopes up and we've got to keep him up because paying the heart ache reality is just among us, and we are going to deal with these challenges but I believe God has given us every reason to get our hopes up, and to keep them up because he is Lord of all, not just the good stuff.
He is Lord of everything that's going on. And even when chaos surrounds us his plan and purpose will prevail. I constantly remind myself of what we say daily on this broadcast. He who began a good work in us is going to bring it to completion.
So in this message. People are going to hear me share and I'm going to use case studies from the Scripture how people who faced real life challenges such as were all going through, but how they sold the Lord's hand in the midst of it how God brought them out of it, and gave them hope and help even in difficult times, and I hope that people are going to be blessed as they receive this video message.

You need to know that you are who God says you are. You are not what people say you are you are not what those who brought you up say you are you are not what social scientists say that you are I will says I am I can do what God says I can do. People may try to define who you are but God's Word tells you exactly who you are on today's destine for victory. Pastor Paul Sheriff reminds us that as believers we have not only been chosen by God, but we are part of a royal priesthood with this message. We are royalty peers. Pastor Paul go with me to first Peter chapter 2 verse nine. These are days when social media status is our everything in the last message we began looking at first Peter two and verse nine.
In an effort to update our status from a biblical perspective, I'm not so much interested in what you put on your social media page.
I'm interested in how you truly identify your self and according to the word of God from a biblical perspective, from God's point of view. There are some things that need to be established in your heart and mind by way of your identity in Christ.
I want to make sure that you are familiar with who you really are so that you can live out you really are. By the end of the day you need to know that you are who God says you are. You are not what people say you are you are not what those who brought you up say you are you are not what social scientists say that you are I am God says I am I can do what God says I can do I can be everything God says I can be. In fact, I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength and I want to make sure you understand who you are now the last message we open this part one of this message.
We talked about the first keyword there were in first Peter 29 but you are a chosen generation, we looked at the word shows and then we discovered that in Christ we were chosen for his own purposes.
You didn't choose him. He chose you. People love the say all I found the Lord in 19 whatever it was I beg to differ. You did not find him. He was not lost.
You know what happened. He found you, because you and I were lost, but he found us. He shows us and we are excited about the fact that were chosen so whoever didn't choose you ever haven't chosen you in this world you need to know God has chosen you don't let people make you feel in this because they have some else in mind you looking for a boom in the one you were looking at is looking at somebody else. Don't worry about it. That's not for you because what you have to run it down you not grab the chase it down and you did not have to convince them to be with you and it was there which you you won't have a good business day which you and in the meantime you can know am chosen you would do well to choose me because God already chose me chosen. Now I want to move on and look at the second identifying word in the passage. Not only are you a chosen generation, but secondly, Arroyo priesthood. Today I want to put in your status royalty you are royalty. I need you to know you're not a commoner you are a royal in the plan and purpose of God. You are royalty. Now that's parked there a little bit before I get to the other identifying words and the birds let me spend a little time at royalty because Peter said that's exactly who we are. Think about it for moment, how is it that God identifies me as royalty. Well, it's because he is the king not only is he thinking he's the king of today. The Lord of lords. It gets no higher than him, he will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, and so you need to understand that we the king not only do we saw the king but we have been brought into the king's family by the new birth, so you and I in Christ all royalty when it comes to Francis. The British monarchy the way your established first and foremost is through the bloodline because if you come in by the bloodline you're in, no matter what their other ways to get in which all mission in the moment you can marry into royalty but before the first way you become. Arroyo is you are born Arroyo her body understand that when you are born Arroyo you are now the reason I am pointing that out is because if you're going understand who you are in Christ, you need understand that you are that no matter what you do see a lot of people think you have to perform your way into the good graces of God, but he calls you before you ever start performing anything when you're born Arroyo when you just show we have in our lifetime we have watched the British monarchy develop in our lifetime we have seen, of course, that Prince Charles who is the son, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II Prince Charles all remember back in the early 80s when he married a little girl named Diana don't remember that.
Come on, you will hear it the millennial's they were born yet they were on their way trying to get here, but we generation X and an earlier, my generation, the boomers in the fall before me. We all got to see it. I remember watching that royal Diana marrying the prince who is the future King of England when Queen Elizabeth II passes off the scene. She looks out as you go anywhere anytime soon, but we see God go, he becomes King of England. You know he is the king of England because he was born to Queen.
Let's see if he's king material that got my campaign material because he is already designated as the future King of England.
All I need somebody get this revelation because if you get about venom you can plug it into your own life you are royalty before you ever start showing your nature, your character or anything else you have got a black line that brought you into royalty. And we all got to see Charles live his life and he didn't always make wonderful decisions. Amen.
Glory to God.
We are going far into the details of the situation, but he didn't always make the best decision and after a while Diana said, no, let this go when they separated, and all of that, you know the story of all that he hooked up with sister girl that he been with ever since. But even when one of the times. Still, her they would often still call her Princess even though she wasn't that she used to be in the family and made it like this. He was no longer in the family, but they still treated her with that.
In fact, if you recall after her tragic death in that car accident. After that, people were still wanting her to be honored by the royal family and at first Queen Elizabeth II looked like she wasn't having that they're not uniting the family, but the pressure of public opinion started crab men in the light. You are your kinfolk. I tell you the people grows up and they start doing, and finally to Queen cave-in and you saw her come out there and pay tribute and honor and all of that that was the right thing to do, but the fact of the matter is Diana marrying her way to royalty when you are born again though you don't have to map your way into God's plan. You get in line. I came to tell you we will bloodline not taken a backseat to anybody below the blood of Jesus that sent me the blow that the blood that made me whole again what Ken wants away my sin.
But the blood of Jesus. What will again nothing but the blood of Jesus all that flow that makes me white as snow, no downtime, no nothing but the blood of Jesus and by the bloodline.
I can tell you your in battle bloodline. You are legitimately royalty you need to know that about yourself royalty and it didn't start out with me being impressive in the way I behaved no-no behavior has become on the backside of your calling. You are and so we are born again royal will be right back with more of today's destined for Victor message from Pastor Paul Sheppard, senior pastor, destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California listen to the broadcast on firstname.lastname@example.org that's Pastor Paul.net will find a host of great resources and online store, including books and DVD messages from Pastor Paul.
Do you know how believers in Christ became royalty reborn. That way must join Pastor Paul again for the rest of today's message. We are royal now. I love the fact that Prince Charles is going to be the king. One day, but even now Charles and Diana before they separated. You know they had two boys their names were Prince William and Prince Harry, they were Princess.a.
They will born so many of us all remember when they were born. We remember watching the TV as they had the camera there at the hospital door waiting to see Diana come out with her firstborn, and there is young Prince William and then couple years later we saw her come out with Harry and we were so excited as the boys grow up, but they were Princess already now William got married to Kate Middleton and the same camera was set up little while later, at the same like it was identical because that's the door she spoke to come out with and we saw Kate come out with her firstborn.
I had to write down to me names and Prince George.
She came out and showed us Prince George is now here. Prince Coley will born into the bloodline.
Prince George came out and couple of years later, Princess Charlotte came out pretty little girl got the nicest bio George is always nicely pleasant. He smiles and the people but Charlotte will waive action that is easy to Think this way the people I sold boys, it will be a heartbreaker to go kill and be Prince George Princess Charlotte, and behold, there came 1/3 one. Prince Louis now Louise on as it spelled with what you do with the European way. Louis, hallelujah fact of the matter is all since Prince assesses to get cold. I will born. He and I came in for the bloodline. I came to tell somebody in Christ you got in through the bloodline. I'm not taken a backseat to anybody I God said I didn't do what God said I can do. I will be all that God called me to be because I'm mentally by the blow now there is another way you get in if you're not in the royal bloodline. But if you're really in your still in now just be technical when it comes to the throne, you're not eligible to the throne, but you don't need to throw because you amen so is not the throne.
I am an many of us have recently saying that the dramatic way that excited many of us for an additional reason.
We all that when you grew up Harry. He was in the Armed Forces.
We saw him fulfilling his service. I think you still in the forces of Silva filled his service in the British Army or Navy or whatever it but we saw that he was somewhat about a playboy. He liked the girlie's and also we see him Dayton various ones at different times, but all back when was it in 2016. A friend of bears a friend of his and a friend of a young lady whose name was Leslie Rachel may get Marco to go by her first name. They just dropped off Rachel and we called her Megan Markel and somebody new Megan and somebody new Harry and said I think the two of them would hit it off and set him up on a blind date. You don't know that that's how they met on a blind date didn't know who they were coming to see they were praying as they came Jesus in the name of the Lord Jesus all. Don't let this be one of the worst days of my life.
Jesus thereby will pray that this in my mind what they should've been doing pleading the blood and maybe Matt and hit it off so after that meeting a friend had done their job and they continued talking to one another and hang out with one another and all of that and behold, in 2017 they got engaged. Now here is what I love about it, make them not only is not a royal Megan is a homegirl mole somebody making a loan. I mean as homegirl is America. She grew up see what all living somewhere out in the written word peels away the fancy places there. She down in the LA basin with all the rest of the folks down there with Kiki them, hold somebody all wanted Kiki Charles Bly around all day starting to get married before his marriage didn't work out too well that were married less than two years. It was a year in several months and they said no to think for us and they divorced, but she liked what Don draws this marriage didn't work out. She kept alive And join us out.
She was an actress, but see what getting a job.
She just acted where she could have the good business you got a pretty decent series and what have you, and she was making ends meet.
But all that was a plan that she didn't know about and she hooked up with Harry and they started getting the girl she is American homegirl. Amen. I'm just trying to show you that when you are no matter what else of the full, try to focus on and sold had never been there has never been until she showed up. There has never been in a non-Anglo member of the royal family, but she changes things she got in Harry's heart.
Harry said the Lord is my shepherd, I see what I will call somebody and all his wish and hope in the window for Prince to drive but she try to get somebody to do the whole, sweep and rescue you, baby. So whether somebody comes on. God said, I do what God and that blind date turned into an engagement and so on. May 19, 2018.
They got married in royal style. I mean folk flew over from the US if they got one of those precious invitations you we saw them all on the TV all man. It was a site that was there with not even bring us what we got excited. We just got excited. Anyhow, and we haven't wedding parties, crazy hats.
Also, some of the TV cameras will go to the various parties, and you saw you a happy boy that got some stuff like who even thought that when the deck sipped come from.
They don't know but they don't care they just put it on and they going on how to win. I came to tell you that we are royalty. We believe that the matter is that we are into the bloodline Megan because when I want to discount you for your ethnicity or your background or anything discount you when God included you. God included me about you and your comments on who I'm not and where I come from God is intentional taken the base things to confound those that are high and mighty taken much more that I know somebody himself. When God bless you as you had to be gone.
