  2 – A Faithful Witness and Being Set Apart
27 – Things Unveiled and Revealed in God’s Presence and Light of Truth

1 John 2:27 (NKJV) But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.


As we get closer and closer to the imminent and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ, there are things from the Bible that we need to pay special attention to. There is a word I want to introduce that you may need to become more familiar with – consecration. Consecration means to be set apart, to lean into something, or to be intentional. 

Once consecration occurs, everything needed for your call will come to meet you. You will find yourself at a specific place, at a particular time, for a miracle to happen. Just like this: Then Moses said, “Consecrate yourselves today to the Lord, that He may bestow on you a blessing this day, for every man has opposed his son and his brother.”– Exodus 32:29 (NKJV)

He says, “There’s a certain place I’ve got to go. I must lean into that and own it.” Not only are we to consecrate ourselves to the purposes of the Lord, but we also have sacred spaces of redemption in every part of our lives to be consecrated.

Even our sleep doesn’t belong to us. It becomes an intimate time between us and the Lord. It’s when we get to hear God speak. We must listen to Him talk and be consecrated to the Lord. See, consecration is all about an intentional posture toward God’s presence.

People who walk with God powerfully in public must walk with God privately in a powerful way. There’s no substitute for that. You and I must own the responsibility of being people of consecration. Setting yourself apart in a particular way for God to bless you must explicitly become your new norm. It’s what you must do and who you must be in these times. Jeremiah went to the cave. Ezekiel went to the river, and Daniel went to the window. Where do you go to get yourself consecrated so you can live at a higher level?

Psalm 84:5 (NKJV) Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

Being “set on pilgrimage” is about being consecrated. There’s a special blessing for people who want to go deeper with Christ. Maybe your friends don’t go after God like that. Maybe your history has never gone after God like that, but let me tell you this: I feel a green light for you. People of God who are walking in the blessing of God will always have haters. Know your purpose! When you have a purpose, you won’t be defined by how others see or react to you. You decide to be blessed despite who it makes mad. I double-dog dare you from the Holy Spirit to set your heart upon pilgrimage and consecrate your life to King Jesus today. It’s time.

Matthew 10:22 (NKJV) And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.

Declaration: I am a passionate, purpose-driven person. My vision is clear, and those who hate me can’t slow me down because I have the Power of King Jesus behind me.
