I do this all the time, I just make my selection with rectangle select
and then use Image->Crop to selection.
It's possible to do it even quicker with the dedicated Crop tool.

or at least till its undone.

I can see your problem is that you are behaving in an arrogant and
demanding fashion.
This also leads me to doubt whether you have done a reasonable amount
of research on this problem, especially as the first hit for Google
search "GIMP crop image to selection" includes instructions for
cropping using the Crop tool.

In case it wasn't clear to you..
'Erasing part of the image'
does not in any way equate to 'reducing the area of the image'.
