I teach this concept to all whom I have been chosen to connect with.
Eternal Consecration is when you dedicate your life entirely to God, by giving Him lifelong sacrifices and setting aside times during each day in a committed lifestyle of prayer and fasting as you display yourself as a living Epistle to all that see you.
When you live this type of life, then you walk in the Spirit continually. This lifestyle gives you the ability to remain in a steadfast position of obedience sanctification holiness humility as you maintain of walk of righteousness.
It means you are constantly in prayer and feasting off the Word, because it keeps you with a hunger and thirst for seeking God.
I am learning that the more I commit to God, the more I submit my lifestyle to pleasing Him. I have watched persons that adopt this lifestyle have character attitudes and behaviors that displays the attributes of Jesus.
They walk in a greater understanding of love and have a intense desire for souls. These persons commitment level to the LORD is often seen as to deep to the average Christian, who just want to exist, but not have a committed relationship with God.
Their lifestyle is considered too strict, sheltered and restricted, because they don’t need most things that people enjoy.
Most persons who are around those who are sold out, don’t understand them.
One thing I know people don’t know about me, is I can be in your midst and be in intercession, without opening my mouth to make a scene, or wanting people to know I’m praying and discerning them and what’s around me.
I often have my prayer time privately, because as I pray for people, God gives me intimate details of their lives, so that I have to war in prayer about what these persons don’t need to know.
There are times throughout the day when I may break out in intercession concerning things God drops in my spirit to pray about. I don’t have a set time to pray, I just am ready to pray as the Spirit leads me.
God would tell me that I can’t be routine, I can’t be uniformed, that I can’t set a specific pattern, because that gives Satan and my human enemies information and the ability to time their attacks or to send distractions against my prayer times.
Being a person who lives a lifestyle of consecration, keeps me in a broken and dependable state before the LORD. It causes me to walk in faith trust and assurance and keeps me in a state of binding, rebuking, decreeing and declaring, warring and battling, and gives me the ability to maintain a position of power and authority so that I can be readily able to obey God at any given time that He needs me.
Those persons who choose to live a lifestyle of eternal consecration, have chosen to totally dedicate, commit and surrender their life and lifestyle to always pleasing God and doing His will.
They realize that their lives is not their own, but that they belong to God and they live knowing they have been brought with a price and that they live breathe and have their total being in Christ!
A surrendered, consecrated, sanctified, holy, obedient lifestyle that exemplifies that attributes of Christ is the greatest worship that you can give to God!
