Titles are very important in My kingdom and everyone has one, one of Mine is King of Kings. Some of you are also kings and priests by virtue of My position, Revelation 5:10.
I have made you little kings with full authority to use My name. Some have the distinct honor of the son or daughter of God title. There are those who have a servant title. Some actually wear crowns proclaiming their eternal title, 1 Peter 5:4.
What you might not know is that you choose your eternal title while on planet earth. You all have a title on earth whether you realize it or not. Some have Lover of His presence title, some wear a Kingdom Giver title, some wear Lover of Souls title. Others have Intercessor on their door. Some simply have a very small title that says Humble. I see titles Poor in Spirit, Meek, and Persecuted titles much more in the east than the west.
I also see titles Proud, Phony, Liar, Lukewarm, Lover of pleasure, Heady, High Minded, Boasters, and Gossip displayed abundantly in the west, 2 Timothy 3:2-5. When a person’s name first comes up, everyone pictures their title first, and a positive or negative feeling immediately follows.
Some children mention their father and everybody sees a Drunk title, or others mention their husband and the title Loud Mouth pops up. Some family members never want to mention a name because of their title, 1 Corinthians 5:11. Still others are anxious to mention a name because their title is a blessing to everyone. Funny, Uplifting, Caring, Helper, Peace Maker are all well liked titles, 1 Corinthians 12:28-31.
What’s your title? If you don’t like it or you are an embarrassment to your family and the kingdom, you can still change it while you are on earth! 2 Corinthians 5:17.
