You must be consecrated to God for kingdom principles to work effectively in your life. Consecration, or "setting yourself apart for God's use and purposes," is one element in the foundation of prosperity. You must remove sin (iniquity) from your life in order for God to prosper you.


  1. Manifestation and accomplishment come from a strong foundation.
    1. A sturdy foundation is necessary to sustain any kingdom principle (Psalm 11:3).
      1. Prosperity can't be established without the proper foundation.

    2. Once the Church has a strong foundation, all nations will flow to it (Isaiah 2:2).
      1. God will build up the Church to its highest point, then He will appear in His glory (Psalm 102:16).

    3. Part of building a strong foundation is living a righteous life (Isaiah 3:10).
    4. If the Devil can successfully destroy the foundation of God's Word in your life, he can see you fail over and over again.

  2. Consecration is one element in the foundation of prosperity.
    1. God knows those who belong to Him; if you are a Christian, you must depart from iniquity (2 Timothy 2:19).
      1. God won't show up when sin is in your life. This is for your protection; His presence destroys anything that has to do with sin.

    2. Departing from sin is a foundational key to prosperity.
      1. Until you depart from sin, the principles of the Word have nothing on which to stand.
      2. You can't expect prosperity and success when your life is filled with sin.

    3. Jesus has set you free so that you can come out of the "jail" of sin.
      1. As a believer, you have been made the righteousness of God.
      2. Rely on the power of the Word to deliver you from sin (2 Timothy 3:16).
      3. Return to God when you miss the mark.

    4. Sin will cause you to "die," or to change your position in relation to God.
      1. Adam had the choice of eating from many trees in the Garden (Genesis 2:15-17), but he disobeyed God.
      2. He was clothed with the glory of God, but he changed when he ate the fruit of the forbidden tree. As a result, he hid from God (Genesis 3:9-10).

    5. Sin will escort you out of plenty and into poverty.
      1. Sin is the mother of all poverty.
      2. Adam and Eve lost the clothing of glory and saw their nakedness (Genesis 3:6-7).
      3. God restricted Adam from access to the Tree of Life because He knew that Adam's eating of that tree would perpetuate the sin nature forever without hope of redemption (Genesis 3:24).

    6. Before you can see the blessings of God poured out on your life, sin must be purged (Malachi 3:3-4).
      1. Blessings are released when you consistently tithe (Malachi 3:10).
      2. Every time you say "no" to sin, God says "yes" to prosperity in your life.
      3. If you depart from iniquity, you will see gold (prosperity), like dust, accumulate in your life (Job 22:23-24).
      4. Kingdom prosperity will only answer to an iniquity-free candidate.

  3. God has not called His children to remain in the dark.
    1. As a born-again Christian, it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God (Mark 4:11).
    2. God has knowledge that will bring results in your life.
      1. The common denominator for your escape from problematic situations is revelation from God.

    3. The natural, carnal-minded man is on the outside of revelation knowledge (1 Corinthians 2:14). He is "without" God or the knowledge of God.
    4. God will show His secrets to those who fear Him (Psalm 25:14).
      1. When you walk in the fear of the Lord, you allow God to do wonderful things in
        your life.
      2. Walking in the fear of God means hating evil.

      1. What you do every day is what you develop; therefore learn to develop an iniquity-free lifestyle.
      2. Accept responsibility for where you are.

    5. Don't be like a dog and "return to your vomit," or return to the way you did things when you were unsaved (2 Peter 2:20-22; Proverbs 26:11; Revelation 22:15).
      1. God can't prosper a person who is living like a dog.
      2. Jesus' advice to dogs is to depart from iniquity.
      3. God wants to convict you of sin so that you will stop.

    6. You become a candidate for kingdom prosperity when you live a consecrated life.
