“You Are The Man!”

‭1 Timothy‬ ‭2:5-8‬ ‭KJV
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.”
Before you can stand out you must first fit in
Be leery of people who promise to take you up fast
You cant have the purpose until you go through the process
You cant relay your message from a place of isolation
You cant win people from the stage
God always uses one from among them
We have representation on the counsel of Heaven
God raised up Joseph the slave to sit on the counsel of Egypt to save those who rejected him.

5 Principles

1- Understand your Mission

– don’t be so focused on the position that you lose sight of the mission
– position means nothing if you don’t understand the mission
– it is the mission that brings you to the mission
– when God promotes you it is for the mission
– God is concerned about the mission
– God will move you up as long as you don’t lose sight of the mission
– until you understand the Why, He will not give you the What
– does what you are praying for have a why or just a what?
– why do you need more of what?
– you must be mission driven
– your money must have a mission
– what is your mission
– married for what? Husband for what? Wife for what?
– don’t ask for something you are not willing to take care of?

2- Maneuvered

– get ready for a shift
– god is maneuvering you, don’t be upset about it
– Joseph saw up but went down
– the maneuver looked the opposite of the dream
– your first step was to survive being down
– can you praise God in the pit?
– God is seeking PIT PRAISERS!
– I wont just praise Him in the Palace, I will praise Him in the pit!
– it is much better to Be a preacher than to look like one
– they took Joseph’s coat, but they couldn’t take his call
– whats in you is always stronger than what is on you!
– God will not allow you to accept less than what is best for you
– god introduced Joseph to a butler in prison
– what if Joseph had been to arrogant to listen to the butler
– the warden couldn’t get him where he belonged, it was the butler
– all of a sudden you have been shifted, maneuvered!
– you cant preach with fire unless you have been in hell’s kitchen

3- Management

– can you handle it
– i know you have been taught it, but can you do it?
– can you manage sitting in this seat?
– can you handle the seat that you are praying for and destined to?
– it is hard to manage success
– what university did Joseph attend?
– he did not grow up in the environment, had no experience
– but whatever he got thrown in, he Managed it!
– the stress of it, the pain of it, the sociology of it!

4- Mediation

– mediation is really the mission
– when the famine broke out, their was someone in power to support the family
– some of the things you went through were really for other people.
– he with no experience was now managing a country
– the people who knew you when wont even recognize you because you have grown so much
– you are helping now people who don’t recognize you, and people who hated you.
– when they don’t recognize you, you still recognize them
– the are now eating and surviving off of Joseph’s character
– Joseph because is kin to them, can be touched by the feelings of their infirmity
– he was their kinsman redeemer, a typology of Jesus
– he was sold fir 30 pieces of silver
– he came to his own and his own received him not
– all we are now only waiting for the manifestation

5- Manifestation

– the world thinks they are waiting for a new president
– but the world is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God
– beloved now are ye the Sins of God!


– stop waiting on somebody else to fix it,
– the power is in you!
– if it was true about Joseph, and true about Jesus, it is true about you!


– stop looking at where you are sitting, but instead, where you will be seated.
– don’t worry about haters, traitors, liars,
– you are not there to make money, you are on a mission!

– if you would just manifest, you will have to make changes, but


Prayer: I will manifest who #IAM in my spirit!
Song: To Become What God’s Designed You To Be!
