True servants of God do not give themselves titles in their names. Other people may use these titles when referring to them but the servants themselves do not use titles in their names.
Titles are names like professor, doctor, honorable, mighty, president, speaker, governor, senator, king, queen, prince, prophet, etc.
Titles speak of you; they say who you are. If you call yourself professor blah blah, that means you are a professor. If you call yourself Dr. blah blah, you are a doctor. If you call yourself President blah blah, you are a president, etc.
Titles elevate, draw honor, glory, recognition, etc to a person.
True servants of God do not give themselves Titles in their Names
True servants of God think themselves as servants. They think themselves the way Jesus thought Himself.
Phil 2:5: Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus
Jesus thought Himself as a servant to even giving His life on the cross for the salvation of humanity.
A servant does not elevate, draw glory, honor and recognition to her/himself but to her/his master. A servant does not glorify or honor her/himself but it is the master who glorifies and honors her/his servant.
As a servant, Jesus did not seek His own glory and honor but God the father glorified and honored the son.
John 8:50: And I seek not mine own glory
John 8:54: Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honors me
It is God who honors and glorifies His servants not the servants to glorify and honor themselves.
John 12:26: If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honor.
A title speaks of you; it is about you. Using a title in your name is seeking your own glory, honor, fame and recognition from human beings.
John 7:18: He who speaks of himself seeks his own glory: but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him.
True servants of God do not seek honor, glory, fame or recognition. It is Jesus Christ who honors and glorifies them.
They do not give themselves titles in their names for the honor and glory to go to their master, Jesus Christ, not to themselves.
They do not speak of their own or draw fame, attention and recognition to themselves but they draw all glory to Jesus Christ.
By the time God releases His true servants from the ‘desert’ for them to do His work, a servant is so crashed and humbled that s/he does not want any glory to come to him/her but to go to his/her master (God).
A true God servant knows that s/he is nothing but just a vessel being used.
And for you to be nothing, in the desert when you’re molded for the gospel, you lose everything like Apostle Paul.
Phil 3:8: Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but rubbish, that I may win Christ,
You totally decrease for Jesus to increase. Yourself totally dies. You become the least of all saints and God’s servants for you to be great in the kingdom of heaven and be completely poured out for the gospel.
In the kingdom of heaven, Apostle Paul is great but on earth he totally humbled himself becoming the least of all saints and servants of God.
1 Cor 15:9: For I am the least of the apostles, that am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
Eph 3:8: Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given
When you come out of the ‘desert’, from being molded and prepared for the gospel of Jesus Christ, you cannot use a title in your name. You cannot want any glory, honor, fame or recognition to come to you.
For three years I was crushed and I lost everything. I become nothing and I count all those things rubbish. I am the least of all saints and not worthy to be a servant of God but only by His grace.
As a true servant of God, people may use a title when referring to you but you yourself you do not use a title in your name. You refer to yourself as a servant (the least).
God may use a title like a prophet to you but you do not use that title to yourself. It is God to glorify you not you to glorify yourself.
In the Bible God servants used no titles in their names
All God servants in the Bible called themselves, ‘servants’ with no other title even when God defined clearly who they are;
Even when God made Moses a god to pharaoh, nowhere in the Bible Moses calls Himself god – ‘god Moses’.
Ex 7:1: And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh
Moses was indeed a prophet but nowhere do we see Moses calling Himself ‘Prophet Moses’.
Det 34:10: And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face
Though Moses was a god to pharaoh and a prophet he referred to himself as a servant; a servant of the LORD.
Ex 4:10: And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since you spoken unto your servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
Num 11:11: And Moses said unto the LORD, Why have you afflicted your servant? and why have I not found favor in your sight, that you lay the burden of all this people upon me?
By being a servant, all the glory and honor went to the LORD not to Moses and this made people fear the LORD and believe in Him.
Ex 14:31: And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.
When glory and honor is coming to yourself but not to the LORD, people are not draw to God neither do they fear nor believe in Him.
Although Moses was a god to pharaoh and a prophet, he was a servant of the LORD and God referred to him as a servant.
Num 12:7: My servant Moses is not so
Num 12:8: …Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
Joshua 1:2: Moses my servant is dead
Samuel was indeed established to be a prophet of the LORD but nowhere do we see Samuel calling himself ‘Prophet Samuel’.
1 Sam 3:20: And all Israel from Dan even to Beer-sheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.
Samuel knew he was a prophet and other people called himself a prophet but he did not call himself a prophet but a servant.
1 Sam 3:10: And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, ‘Speak; for your servant hears’.
Isaiah was indeed a prophet of the LORD but nowhere in the Bible do we see Isaiah calling himself ‘Prophet Isaiah’.
Jeremiah was a prophet of the LORD but nowhere in the Bible do we see Jeremiah calling himself ‘Prophet Jeremiah’.
Jer 1:5: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou comes forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Even when Jeremiah knew from God that he was ordained to be a prophet, he didn’t ever call himself a prophet but remained a servant.
Jonah was sent to prophesy and bring Nineveh to repentance. He was a prophet but nowhere do we see him call himself ‘Prophet Jonah’.
6. John the Baptist
John the Baptist was greater than all born of women
Mt 11:11: Verily I say unto you, among them that are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist
He was more than a prophet
Mt 11:9: But what went you out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
But John was so humble living in the wilderness eating locusts and wild honey.
Mt 3:4: And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
Mt 11:8: But what went you out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.
When asked who he was he said,
John 1:19-23: And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are you? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Are you Elias? And he said, ‘I am not’. Are you that prophet? And he answered, No. Then said they unto him, Who are you? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What say you of yourself? He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah.
See clearly that John did not even give himself a title defining himself (saying who he was) neither did he say he was a prophet yet he was more than a prophet. He said he is a voice. Being a voice means he is just a vessel conveying the voice thus a servant.
Through John we received the Revelation of Jesus Christ (Book of revelation) but John did not call himself a prophet nor elevate himself. Instead he calls himself a servant.
Rev 1:1: The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John
Even angels call themselves servants
Rev 19:10: And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant,
All Biblical witnesses of the gospel did not give themselves titles but they all did marvelous works.
Who are you then giving yourself a title to elevate, draw glory and honor to yourself? Are you greater than Moses, Elijah, Isaiah, Jonah, Paul, John the Baptist, etc? If Jesus was a servant, who are you elevating yourself yet claiming to be His servant?
Brood of Vipers, Ravening wolves in sheep’s clothing capitalize on titles
Broods of vipers, ravening wolves in sheep’s clothing capitalize on titles. This is to elevate themselves in the eyes of humanity drawing glory and honor to themselves.
They call themselves, ‘Prophet blah blah’, ‘DR. Prophet blah blah’, ‘King blah blah’, ‘Queen blah blah’, and so many other titles.
They are of the devil. They are not serving the God they claim to serve. Brood of vipers! Ravening wolves in sheep’s clothing!
And they even preach another gospel not Jesus Christ; prosperity gospel: – a false damnation gospel.
Flee from them.
But when we true servants of God come humbled with no titles to ourselves, drawing no honor, glory and recognition to ourselves, coming purely in the name of Jesus Christ, you receive us not but you receive these broods of vipers coming in their own names.
John 5:43: I am come in my Father’s name, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive.
All True servants of God refer to themselves as ‘servants’ because indeed they are servants serving their master. They are vessels doing the will of their master and the glory and honor goes to their master not to them. Reason they do not use titles in their names. They know God owns it all.
Open your eyes and see.
