TSA: Total Surrendering Agreement

Sunday, January 7, 2024 RECAP/Study Points

From the Desk of Apostle Michael A. Freeman

If you have traveled, we all have been through TSA’s process. It’s simply to ensure that our journey is not impeded upon by anything that we have carried with us. They screen every, last passenger before they get on a plane, a train, or a cruise ship. Why? So, that we can ensure that we’ll get to our destination safely.

One of the most liberating things about my pastoring you is knowing that IDK (I don’t know). Well, this TSA is an acronym for Total Surrendering Agreement, but what’s so liberating about pastoring you all in this regard is that I don’t even know sometimes when I’m saying to you in it’s conflation or it’s harmony or it’s place with one another. Because I talked about it being a leap year in November before knowing that it was going to be a leap year. Now, I didn’t know in November that in 2024 this was going to be a leap year. When I said it, it was based on something prophetic. I didn’t know that it was going to have anything to do with a shift that was going to take place. And, when I hear shift, most shifts are lateral shifts, or side-to-side. Then I heard Vertical Shift. Well, I didn’t have any correlation of leap or vertical when I said leap or vertical. I just knew that this vertical shift, this next shift was going to be something that was going to take us up  . Well, which way do you go when you leap? Up! Unbeknownst to me, this is where God is taking me. A vertical shift in a leap year, but I don’t want you to confuse this year with the leap that I was talking about because they’re not the same. So, I had to make sure that they were not the same and I had to find out the origin of leap year.

TSA: Total Surrendering Agreement Sunday, January 7, 2024 RECAP/Study Points

From the Desk of Apostle Michael A. Freeman

But, this is not what I was talking about. I was talking about another leap that was going to cause you to get way ahead of some stuff that you are way behind in. The principle of leap, the principle of up must begin with waking up. You’ve been sleeping on some stuff for too long. Wake Up in your marriage, Wake Up in your principles, Wake Up in your understanding of the Word, Wake Up in these areas that you’ve been sleeping far too long in. After you Wake Up, guess what you’re going to have to? Sit Up! Because you can wake up and stay down. You’re going to have to Sit Up, then you’ll have to Stand Up in order for you to Leap Up! And, when you start leaping up the way I will be instructing you, that’s when you’re going to Catch Up!

Pastor Dewayne: And, you know something Apostle?  This leap year, it helps align the earth’s course around the sun. There’s an alignment that takes place during the leap year. And, I believe with all my heart, that the spirit of the living God, is aligning some things with some people lives in here, so we can Catch Up so we can have this Vertical Leap together.  I don’t believe that God wants anybody in here to be left behind. I think this leap year is designed, if people get their ears open to what’s taking place, I’m telling you they’re going to see some supernatural things. And some of you all are going to be so thankful because you didn’t do so well in 2023. But the reason why you’re hanging out with others is that we’re not going to let you go. You’re going to rise up with us.

Let me tell me how in harmony you are. I intended to share with you that this is a continuation, not a starting over of what we were doing last year germane to divine alignment.

I am a sneak preview of a coming attraction! Because, I’m already running into the harvest of what I’m about to teach you. And, you’re going to start living it like you’ve been dreaming it. You’re going to have to be the Captain of your dreams. What’s happening in your dreams? What do you see for yourselves? And, if you don’t have a vision, lend me your eyes. I’m going to show you better than I can tell you.

At the beginning of last year, my wife and I decided that we were going to buy at least 3 homes by the end of the year. Well, last month we bought three homes. Some of you start looking towards ‘24 when ‘23 ain’t finished. And, there were some things that you were supposed to tote over into your ’24 to build on for your ’25. See there are things that I’m discussing with others about my increase, that God is expanding me in, that were never talked about around our dinner table. It’s legacy giving that I’m sitting around these tables about, and I’m learning these things, and these are the things that I’m going to be giving to you. All I need you to do is get in agreement with the word.

So, I’m starting this lesson off with the last part of the acronym Agreement. Because, a lot of people are coming to church every single Sunday and are not agreeing with the word when they leave. You go out of here and cuss your wife out, your husband out, your children and people in the neighborhood. It’s apparent. You don’t agree with the Bible. These little subtle ways of discovering, “I don’t agree with the Bible”. You’re not a acknowledging him in all of your ways. You’re not asking God about where to go. You’re not in agreement. When God tells you, “It’s getting late now”, and you stay, you don’t agree with God. You don’t agree with the Word. You come to church, but you don’t agree with the Bible.

Pastor Dewayne: I like the way that you are beginning this out because you took us to the end of it. Now you are defining all of these terms with this TSA. Isaiah 46:10 says, he declares the end and then he backs up, and then he walks the thing out. I love the way that it’s going on because you gave us the definition of agreement.

You know why people are not in agreement with God? Because you have an opinion about what he said. God told me just this past weekend that I’m going to have to do more with less. I’m seeing so much compromise in ministries or in “churches”, where pastors are allowing anything to go on for the sake of a crowd. Well, that’s not your pastor, because I’m going to agree with God. You can have your opinion, but I have to agree with God.

Pastor Dewayne: Yeah, but I mean it says something about the people that come and listen. When somebody can just tell you anything and you just grab it hook, line and sinker, it let’s me know that you just want anything. There’s not a lot of people that want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and they ask for it, but they really don’t want it. Because when you start giving it to them, now they get upset. And, I’m telling you the truth is the only thing that’s going to make people free. And, that’s why the devil is watering down certain statements. Because when you water down certain definitions, you don’t have any conviction against them any longer. And what the devil is doing, he’s rocking people to sleep and the first thing that Apostle Mike just said is that you have to wake up! My heart is going out like never before because I’m looking out and I’m seeing people not changing. And the only things that’s going to change you to look more like this man named Jesus is the word of the living God. Very few are looking in the mirror of the word. And the word of God is the only thing that’s going to cause change in your life.

Now, the grace of God will be right there with you while you are disagreeing with God. But another one of those “ups” that most people are leaving out, is Grow Up! When you’ve been agreeing and playing it for so long, in harmony with agreeing with God, it’s going to be difficult to do disagree.

Pastor Dewayne: When you have that agreement you create a framework, where you prevent misunderstandings and arguments. Those things are lessened when you are in agreement.

Prov 16:9 (ESV)

The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.

In other words, we inquire of the Lord, get what we perceive to be his plans for our lives, because Jeremiah 29:11 says, I know the plans that I have towards you. So, if he already knows and he knows everything, I go to him concerning my life. Now, it’s possible that I can misinterpret or not hear clearly, the plans that he has given me, but I’ll go ahead and make the plan. In the process of walking out the plans, he will direct my steps. He, by Holy Spirit, will lead and guide me into all truth.

I’m living by the word I’m giving you. Your mind is going to have to agree with the word. The word has to come out of you in full measure so they can see that there is a difference. While we were away we got 14 different series subjects and we know all the way to December what we’re going to be teaching already now. God never starts anything until he first finishes it. You are a finished product. You need to go to God to find out what he has finished. You have not seen the best You yet! But I’m waking up. I’m sitting up. I’m standing up. I’m leaping up. So, I can catch up.

Amos 3:3 (ESV)

Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to meet?

You’ll never walk together with anything that you are doing contrary to the word unless you meet up. You’ve got to meet up with something that’s not in agreement with God to not walk with it. Just because you come to church doesn’t mean that you are walking with God. Because you can come in here, hear the word and go home and not agree with him. How? By not meeting up with what he said.

Matthew 18:19-20 (ESV)

Again, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.

What causes that? Agreeing with God!

Pastor Dewayne: What this is telling me is that there is a power that is released for people that are in agreement that people in disagreement will never see. And there are a lot of times that God has already done everything that he going to do, where he needs us to come in agreement with it so that we the Holy Spirit of the living God can manifest it in our life. But because we are not in agreement with his word or we aren’t in agreement with each other.

2 Corinthians 6:16 (ESV)

What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

You don’t have to agree with it, but you can say you are God’s people, but it’s only going to be demonstrated by your behavior, your actions. You’re going to show us if you agree with God or not.

1 John 5:7-8 (ESV)

For there are three that testify: 8 the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree.

1 John 5:14 (ESV)

And this is the confidence that we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us.

Now, how does he hear us? Now, these two scriptures must conflate because if you don’t have confidence in the word when you ask anything he will not hear you. These two must come together, the confidence and the ask. Most people are asking in desperation. There’s no harmony.  There’s no agreement.  So, when I have confidence in his word and I ask anything, that’s when I know he hears me.

But, if I don’t have confidence, I’m not in agreement. The Bible say, be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary, the devil, goeth about seeking whom he may devour. It’s clear to us, based upon that operative word seeking, that he does not know whom he may devour. He has to seek you out. How will he find out who you are?  One of the ways is because you haven’t waken up or you’re not in the agreement with the word when you ask, because you don’t have confidence towards it. I don’t care how what you are asking is making you feel. Be strong!

1 Corinthians 1:10-11 (ESV)

I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers.

I can’t be talking about ‘We are a City’ and then you are saying, ‘Well, I sure don’t feel like it.’ That’s no agreement. You cannot have what you are asking for not being in agreement with God. Now, the day you received Jesus, you forfeited the right to have your own opinion. All of your opinions are based up his opinions. People ask me what I think about same-sex marriages. I have no thoughts other than what His thoughts are so I can be in agreement with Him.

1 Corinthians 7:5 (ESV)

Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

Pastor Dewayne: This scripture is for married people and it’s based upon your agreement. So, you can’t go on a forty-day fast and he doesn’t want you to go on a forty-day fast.

Matthew 5:37 (ESV)

Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.

Are you going to agree or not? Yes or No. And it requires Growing Up. I’m in agreement with God! Because He is Holy, I am Holy. Because He is good, I am good.

James 1:8 (ESV)

he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

You’ve got a split decision going on in your mind and then you talk yourself out of being in agreement with God.

1 Kings 18:21 (ESV)

And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.

What is to be deduced? What is to be concluded when you don’t answer the question? You are not going to be indolent this year. Yes or No, because there’s no in between.

Pastor Dewayne: If you are growing in the things of God, it’s going to cause you to Speak Up. How long are you going to let those evil thoughts stay in your mind rent-free? When are you going to make a decision and do something about those evil thoughts so you can get up, so you can grow up, so you can speak up and have everything that God desires for you to have.
