Prosperity is not just about money. Christians need to know that there is total life prosperity, or wholeness and continuous well-being for every area of their lives. To experience total life prosperity, you must first understand how it works. Consecration is a key element of this kind of prosperity.



  1. True prosperity has a foundation.
    1. Prosperity isn’t based on emotions, but on an understanding of those things that are responsible for unshakable faith.

    2. According to Psalm 11:3, if there is no foundation, you won’t be able to accomplish anything.

    3. One element of the foundation for prosperity is consecration.
      1. Consecration is “to devote or set apart for a definite purpose; separated from a common to a sacred use; separated or dedicated to the service and worship of God.”

      2. Consecration can be translated to mean “perfected” (Hebrews 7:28) or “newly made” (Hebrews 10:20).

  2. You must separate yourself from iniquity.
    1. By departing from iniquity, you lay down the foundation for prosperity (2 Timothy 2:19).
      1. You enable God to prosper you.

    2. Job 22:23-24 says that God will build up those who stray from Him but return and put away iniquity.
      1. There is compensation when you say “no” to sin—you will have gold, like dust.

  3. The fear of the Lord involves hating iniquity.
    1. The Lord teaches those who fear Him the way they should go (Psalm 25:12, 14, AMP).
      1. He reveals to them His covenant and its deep, inner meaning.
      2. He gives revelation to those who have consecrated themselves.

    2. The fear of the Lord is dedicating yourself to Him, walking in respect of His Word and departing from iniquity by hating evil, sin and wrongdoing.

    3. Walking in the fear of the Lord is the beginning of revelation knowledge; a fool despises wisdom and instruction (Proverbs 1:7).

    4. God blesses the person who departs from the counsel of the ungodly (Psalm 1:1).
      1. Be cautious of those with whom you associate or from whom you take advice, because they may steer you the wrong way.
      2. Delight in God’s law. Meditate on in it day and night so that it will be in you (verse 2).

      3. If you depart from iniquity, you will be rewarded; you will be like a tree planted by rivers of water, and everything that you do will prosper (verse 3).

        1. Example: Joseph prospered everywhere he went: Potiphar’s house, in the field as a servant, in jail and as Prime Minister of Egypt.

  4. It is time to return to the garden of plenty.
    1. Sin moved Adam and Eve out of the Garden (plenty).

    2. They were driven out of plenty and into lack (Genesis 3:24).

    3. “Plenty” is still available to believers.
      1. It is time for believers to step out of sin and back into plenty, because the kingdom of God answers to an iniquity-free candidate.

      2. Adam’s moving from life to death because of sin put everyone under a curse. Because of Jesus, you have moved from death to life. Now that you are alive with God, there is a garden waiting for you—a place of plenty.

    4. After you have consecrated yourself and turned from iniquity, plenty shows up.
      1. The Almighty will be your defense; you will have plenty of silver (Job 22:25).

    5. Obedient responses to the Word are the prelude to a return to the Garden of Eden.
      1. For your obedience, God will make your wilderness like Eden and your deserts like the Garden of the Lord (Isaiah 51:3).

  5. Kingdom purity gives birth to kingdom plenty.
    1. Uprightness and right-standing with God elevates a nation, while sin brings a nation down (Proverbs 14:34, AMP).

    2. Your access to the kingdom of wealth begins with the fear of the Lord. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and wisdom is the mother of all wealth.

    3. Desire wisdom more than anything (Proverbs 3:13, 16; 8:11).

    4. God will rebuild your wastelands when you repent and allow yourself to be cleansed of sin (Ezekiel 36:33, AMP).

    5. You must practice holiness to keep yourself spiritually fit (1 Timothy 4:7-8, 15).
      1. Holiness is “aligning your thoughts and actions with God’s Word.”

      2. Get into the habit of living a holy life.

      3. Employing godliness will profit you in this life and in the life to come.
