Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised...

This Is Your House!

Excerpt from:
Challenging the Discipleship Movement
(Posted: August 11, 2010)

In early 1977, I had no money and I had no idea where I was going to get any. God spoke to me and reminded me of a man I had provided veterinary services for and I had never received payment from. He owed me several hundred dollars and God told me to call him. I didn't even know where he was at that time and God clearly said, "He's in Oklahoma." I called information, they gave me a number, I called it and he answered. We exchanged greetings and I reminded him of the money he owed me and he said, "Oh Doc, I sent you a check for that, but I'll write you another one." He sent me the money and there was enough to pay my bills.

I walked that gravel road in Carrollton speaking Isaiah 41:10-12 for hours, week after week seeking the will of God for my life. One morning in early April of 1977 God spoke and told me to go back to McKinney. He told me there was an office there, how much rent I was to pay for it and He also told me I would have to get the zoning changed. I told Patti, "Get ready, we're moving back to McKinney." She said, "We just left there." (Actually it had been seven years since we had left.) I did just as God instructed me. I went to the office and it was empty. I drove over to the man's office that owned it and asked if he was in. He was I told him what I was looking for. He told me I could have the office and told me what he would charge me. It was the exact amount God had said it would be. When I told him we needed to change the zoning he said, "Oh we don't need to do that. We all know one another here." Well, I knew to obey God and not a man. I went to the city offices and while there, a man walked by me who was a city engineer and stopped and said, "Aren't you Dr Davidson?" I said, "Yes I am". He said, "Just last week we were talking and I said if we had a veterinarian come to McKinney who wanted to set up an office, we don't have the zoning ordinances to cover it. Would you sit down and tell this person what you want included and we'll write it up and I'll approve it?" I did and wrote it as I wanted it, (however I wished later that I had expanded it when I had the chance.) I went before the zoning board and they voted 5-0 in favor and gave me a certificate of occupancy according to the zoning ordinance I had written. The pastor of the First United Methodist Church, Dr. Canafax, was one of those on the zoning board.

Following that meeting, we began attending the First United Methodist Church, I became a member and was voted president of the fellowship class. I taught the Sunday school fellowship class and became a lay speaker ordained by a staff member of the North Texas conference. Bishop Stowe was the Bishop of the Conference at that time. I submitted to that organization because it was God. Soon after I arrived at the Methodist Church, God spoke to me and said: "You have been taught to get, and then give. My son says you are to give and then get."

Luke 6:38) "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."

God told me to give $100 to the Methodist Church. I didn't even have $100 and I told him he was going to have to give it to me if he wanted me to give. Almost immediately, God provided a little job, I was paid $100 and I couldn't get to the church fast enough to give that money. I didn't even wait until Sunday. I drove over there and told them, "God told me to give this." He then moved me up to $150, $200 and then $300 per week and after that I just continued to obey God and give whatever amount he told me, large or small and I never forgot to give to the poor.

One day God had me take $200 or $300 and drive around and give it away. I drove up to a house and knocked on the door and as I was invited in I saw a woman sitting there and I told her I believed God wanted me to give her some money, and handed her $50. She told me she had been praying, asking God for help. I asked her if she could use another $50 and she said, "Yes" and I handed it to her. Later I drove up to another house and I had $80 left and I knew God had told me to stop there, but when I knocked, no one came to the door. I knocked a few more times and as I was turning to leave a man came around the corner of the house with four children in tow, and I told him, "God told me to give you this money." He wanted to know where I went to church and I said, "Where I go to church doesn't matter, God told me to give it."

In the process of going back to McKinney, God performed another miracle. I had told the man that we were leasing our house from in Carrollton that the deposit I had paid when I rented the house was going to pay the next month's rent. The guy started to protest and I told him that was how it was going to be, we were leaving. A friend, who was a realtor, took me to see a house for sale in McKinney that he thought would be perfect for us. We went and looked at it and I said, "We'll take it" and Patti told me she was with me. He said he would get the papers drawn up and I could come by and sign them. When I arrived at the realtors office, he said, "Doc, someone has just signed a contract on that house and I think it's a sure deal. That was the end of that. Patti said, "What are you going to do now?" "We're going to go look at that house you and Kathy found in Fairview," I replied. When we walked into the house the realtor's husband said, "This is your house". It was nice, a four bedroom, 2400 sq. ft. home on 1.25 acres. The description of the house was on the counter and the listed price was $69,000 and they had dropped it to $65,000. I was told the owner of the house was a Lt. Colonel in Iran. I asked him to call him and tell him I would give $61,000 but I wanted a six month lease-purchase. He told me the owner was out of town on vacation and I encouraged him to call him anyway. When the owner answered the phone, the realtor's husband said, "I thought you were going on vacation. The reply was, "I canceled my vacation and I just sent you a letter with instructions that if someone wanted to buy the house with a lease-purchase that would be acceptable." I closed the deal that day. I paid $61,000 for the house and in 2000 when I gave it away, it was appraised at $227,000.

Fighting Death

I have suffered many burdens in the last nine years. What I just went through on Saturday, Sunday and this morning—I fought death. Saturday was a terrible day, all I could hear was, “You’re dying,” but the Lord had told me I wasn’t going to die. I’m staying here and see Jesus return.

Sunday night, I arrived home after the evening program and headed up the stairs saying, “I will live and not die and declare the works of the Lord.” I was awake for hours, dealing with the pain. I had Terry Mai’s songs playing at a good volume. I heard KD speaking the name of Jesus. I drifted in and out of sleep. At 2:30 I woke KD and asked, “Where are we?”

“We are at the Arena, in bed,” she answered.

“We can’t be.”

“We are in bed, we are listening to Terry Mai’s songs.”

“The ones at our house?”

“Yes. Right here in our bedroom.”

I laid awake, thinking, “I’m in trouble and there is no one to help me. There is no hope.” It was a lonely, scary time. I raised up in bed and said, “There is nobody that can help me.” And then, “Jesus has to help me.” I started talking to the Lord, “Jesus, this is a miserable way to be, you can help me. You’ve got to help me, you’ve got to help me.” Pretty soon I started saying, “Jesus, you are my helper, Jesus you are my helper,” and a little later, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered,” (Joel 2:32). I laid back down, my belly was sore, hurting—I felt like I wanted to vomit and couldn’t, and I finally started saying, “I thank God! Thank God!” I believe I went to sleep thanking God.

I woke up again and asked KD what time it was, she replied, “4:44”. I went back to sleep, waking again shortly after 5:00 and said, “I can’t go on the set today. I can’t do it, I don’t know what we’ll do.” I fell asleep again and woke up just before 7:00 and said, “I sure can’t go on the set today, I don’t know what we’ll do.” I slept again until KD woke me at 8:10; this time I said, “I think I’ll go on the set for three or four minutes.” I kept talking to KD, saying, “I’ve got to go on the set and tell this,” but by the hour’s end I could say, “I’ll be on the set.”

Well, I was on set and for the whole hour and it wasn’t too bad.

Terre took me to my office, and my couch, at 12:45 PM. Kathie told me, “I’ll be back with the guys and we’ll pray at 1:30.” When she returned, I was sound asleep. “I’m not going to bother him,” she said. At 2:15, Terre came to my office, touched me on my face and shoulder and I didn’t move. “Lord, he’s sound asleep,” she said. She came back at 2:45, saw me move and asked, “Doyle are you awake?” I started half-way talking to her and she asked, “Has anyone read Steddie’s email to you?” She read it to me and I understood everything.

At 3:15 I got off the couch and as Terre was driving me home she started telling me about Lark, Lily, Amy and Lou Ann. I wasn’t one bit happy what I heard. Well that’s not me. I walked into the house and KD asks, “What’s going on?” I started weeping then and told her, “I’m trying to deal with something about Lark. I said “Lord you can’t do this to me, and then have this happen to this one—one that doesn’t live. I can’t handle it, you can’t do it to me.”

KD shared with me a song the Lord had her post on her Facebook, “Then Came The Morning.” I asked her to post it to my page which she did. She asked if I wanted a sandwich.

“No, I answered, “But I’ll have some cheese and crackers. After one I said, “I don’t want this, I’m fasting.”

God’s Bountiful Dealings

Transcribed and edited from:
Friday December 8, 2017 Livestream Broadcast

Hello, I’m Doyle Davidson, servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ ministering locally to the Body of Christ in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, sent by God to your house to declare unto you the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:3 and 4 tell us what the gospel is, how that Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, he was buried, and he rose again the third day, according to the scripture.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, sent me to heal the broken hearted, preach deliverance to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind, set at liberty them that are bruised.

The word is nigh thee, even in your heart and in your mouth, is the word of faith which I preach if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead you shall be saved, for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

I’m not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, it is the power of God unto salvation, to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, the just shall live by his faith.

I want to welcome everyone to this broadcast…Kathie Davidson, co-host to my left, good morning. [Kathie: Good morning] How are you? [Kathie: I’m doing well] Bryan Bonner, co-host to my right, good morning. [Bryan: Good morning.]

Well, we’ve got recorded some songs, by Terry Mai, of course Terry’s in heaven; he went there January 2009, but he left me these songs and Water of Life Boys recorded with him:
“I Am”
“There Stood A Lamb”

Doyle: Thank you Father, thank you Jesus. Bryan would you lead us with a prayer? And then we are going to talk about the ministry enlarging and whatever.

Bryan: We have another opportunity, and we want to welcome you to the opportunity, to give God the praise, the glory and experience his power as moves in the earth by his Spirit to glorify his son. So, we are going to pray and give him praise:

Lord we thank you and we praise you for the privilege that you have given us this day to come boldly in your presence, because of the blood of Jesus. We thank you for the precious, sinless blood that Jesus shed for us that allowed us the privilege to be justified in your sight this day. Thank you that you have redeemed us from the curse of the law of Moses. We thank you that you sanctified us, that you’ve made us holy just like you, hallelujah. We thank you that you have imputed us righteous and now we can walk in your grace as we walk in faith. We thank you for the measure that you have given us and the strength that you’ve given us to glorify you and manifest your righteousness in the earth. We bless and praise your name, and we worship you in spirit and in truth. We submit ourselves to you and we resist the devil. And you promise that he will flee from us as we humble ourselves and pray and seek your face. Hallelujah. We press into the kingdom because Jesus told us that as we continue and strive for the kingdom we must press to get in. Hallelujah. We thank you and we bless your name, we give you the glory because you are worthy Lord and we thank you for your Spirit going forth in the earth Lord, manifesting the truth of the gospel to all the ears that can hear your voice. We bless you and praise your name for that great grace that you have extended to your people. We thank you Father and we praise you for victory, thank you Father in Jesus name, Amen.

Doyle: Hallelujah, KD do you have anything to exhort or pray?

Kathie: Yes I do. Do you want to talk first?

Doyle: Well I think I would like for you to and then I’ll talk. Then we are going to talk about what God is doing with Water of Life.

Kathie: Amen. I have some good news for you, turn with me to Mark 1:14,15. I want us to see something here, I want us to see something today.

14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

Preaching the gospel, the good news of the kingdom of God. What is that gospel? It says in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, that Jesus died for our sins, according to the scripture, that he was buried, that he was raised again according to the scriptures, that is the gospel, that is the bonafide definition of the gospel.

15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand:

The kingdom of God is with power, it’s with power, the kingdom of God is with power, (1 Corinthians 4:20). Now, how do you get into that kingdom? It says:

repent ye, and believe the gospel.

How do you get into that kingdom? Repent you, change the way you’re thinking, and believe the gospel. Now with that I want you to turn with me to Mark 4. I’m going to read about the parable of the sower and I want you to know that this parable used to offend me every time Doyle read it. He would get up here and he would say, “Turn to Mark 4,” and I’d roll my eyes, “Here we go again, here we go again with the parable of the sower.” I didn’t like the parable of the sower, in fact I despised the parable of the sower. You know why? Because it was an indictment to my heart, it was indicting my heart.

We are going to read it and we’re going to find out it doesn’t always have to be an indictment.

Mark 4:

3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

Oh, I love this, reminds me of Doyle.

4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:

6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

8 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

Then he goes on to say:

9 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.

And you know what the wonderful thing is? For those of you that wanted to be back in the time of Jesus, well we get to read what Jesus told his disciples, we get to hear the answer to that parable. They didn’t get to hear, but we do.

11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

Now he goes on:

13 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?

This is the first one we’ve got to get, and I want to show you something about this parable. Oh, if you knew how much I [thought], “Oh, here we go again!” We are going to find out how lacking I was in the kingdom of God.

14 The sower soweth the word.

The sower soweth the word, now this is talking about the kingdom, he said if you want to know the mystery of the kingdom of God, and what did I just read to you in Mark 1? I said, “The kingdom of God is at hand. How do you get into that kingdom? You repent and believe the gospel. So for this word, at least part of that word is the gospel. The gospel is sown, because that gospel, to repent and believe the gospel, will get you into the kingdom. Now it says:

14 The sower soweth the word.

15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown [they hear the gospel] ; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, [when they have heard the gospel] immediately receive it with gladness;

17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.

They hear the gospel, “Oh how great this message is!” Oh, I get emails, “Oh your message is so anointed, it’s so wonderful!” and then the next day they call you something.

18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,

19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

And back when Doyle used to minister this to us in the eighties and the nineties I would think, “Well I’m stuck somewhere between the stony ground and the thorns.” Not a good place to be and every time he would bring this up I would think, “There I am, stuck, can’t get out of here, am I ever going to get out of here?”

20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it,

Now in Luke it says, “Hear the word and keep it,” so you receive it and keep it.

and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

Now what’s the good news? Turn with me to Jeremiah 23:29, Jeremiah has a wonderful little verse stuck there, a precious verse.

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Breaks up that rock, that stony heart, that word will break it up. You know what the word of God is saying and what the Lord is saying? Keep sowing it, keep sowing that word in your heart because that word itself, it’s a fire and it’s a hammer and it well break up that stony ground. Turn with me to Hosea 10. I found out, it took awhile, that that parable of the sower was not just an indictment, it was a progression, and it was progressing me, as I sowed that word.

Hosea 10:

12 Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground:

Break it up, how do you break up that fallow ground? You keep sowing the word. That is why Doyle is so insistent that we take the word of God and we read it out loud. We sow the word, we break up that fallow ground, we break it up. We read the Psalms, we read the New Testament, we read Isaiah 52 and 53 out loud, and when we do we sow the word in our own heart and you know what happens? That ground is broken up and it keeps breaking up and it keeps getting more and more able to receive the word. I know when I first started this and the years beyond, there were times I’d read the word of God and my body would be totally numb, from head to foot it would just be numb as I read the word. Other times it was like somebody would punch me in the stomach, that word breaking up the fallow ground. People have had the word jump off the pages, why? Its sowing the word, breaking up your fallow ground. Read that word, sow it to yourself, sow it over and over. Don’t go to the movies, read the word of God. Don’t go to the football game, read the word of God. You know, twenty years from now there aren’t going to be any football games. I’m going to stop right there. Let’s have a song:

“It Is Finished”

Doyle: Well I want to say, this is a happy day for Doyle. I’ve always been a pretty happy guy; it didn’t take a lot to make me happy. My mother said that about me, who could be a better witness than her? She said, “Easiest child she ever knew to make happy.” You don’t think she’d have been prejudice, do you? But she did tell God, “Give me a son and I’ll give him back to you.” Sure enough, that’s what happened.

I wanted to be a veterinarian. My family, the Davidsons were all horsemen—fine horses, nicely harnessed, their tack was sharp. My grandfather had fifty head of draft horses; they had buggy horses. My father dated my mother in a buggy with lights on it, drove five or six miles to get her; but the horses, fancy, really looked good, well dressed. They were horseman, so I had that in my blood. I had an affinity for medicine, but I had a greater one for a horse. I decided to be a veterinarian and I could work on fine horses, I just knew I could. Guess what? God let me do it. I built, north of Dallas, Texas—121 and 75, 121 Veterinary Hospital. It was an ultra-modern facility, large animal and small, surgery, both, four nice stalls for horses brought to my hospital for surgery, treatment. One day God said, “Sell it.” I was thirty-seven, thirty-seven years of age, “Sell it and obey me.” I had no choice, I did just that.

Kathie: I would like to interject here, not only was it an ultra-modern hospital, but you designed it.

Doyle: I drew the plans, I designed it, I had it built by Fab-Crete in Fort Worth, Texas.

Kathie: So it was your baby.

Doyle: It was my baby and it was on three acres on 121 and if you were going from Hwy. 75 to Fort Worth, you probably want 121, and if you drove through that country very much, you knew about 121.

Kathie: If you are driving south on 75 and you go under 121, under the many ramps and you look to your right, under sixteen feet of concrete is where 121 was. [A little laughter here.]

That’s what God thought of that hospital.

I had a great time, but in 1970, January 2nd, I drove away from it. I did not intend to look back, although I’ve thought about it more than once. I thought, “What a fool I am,” but no, that wasn’t true. God is in my life, he let me have a practice that amazed me. I had a good reputation by the Director of Clinics, Dr. Ebert, who was an equine man, member of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, well respected and he gave me a high recommendation. Thank God, the Lord gave me a low one. You’re going to obey me. I loved nice things, fancy stuff, I loved it, but I could humble my self and walk very humbly, modest, very modest, but I liked nice things. So, when the Lord sold my hospital in 1970, from then on, 1970 to 1980, God taught me about him.

In 1980 he sent me to Plano, Texas to “…speak to the people of Plano” as a prophet and a teacher and I didn’t know that. God was doing things with me far above what I ever expected God to do. I thought I’d just be a preacher on a corner, of a small church. That was not God’s will. God had a plan for me far exceeding anything I could have imagined. I wouldn’t have guessed that I could walk where the great men of the bible walk. I grew up knowing about prophets, apostles, teachers, John Wesley doctrine; never thought I’d be one. God had a plan. I did things that I wouldn’t have thought I would’ve had to do. I suffered a lot, a lot, from 1970, especially 1973/4, had a national television broadcast, international shortwave radio, satellite, everything went well.

In 2009 God let the devil come down on me in a major way. My eyesight started [going down] quickly, because there wasn’t anything wrong with it, it was oppression of the devil, God allowing it to happen, to humble me, show me what was in my heart, show me that I would keep his commandments. I’ve been very blessed, greatly blessed to be a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ and Jehovah, what a blessing, shocking. In December 2016, I was greatly surprised what took place on the 29th and the 31st of December, God started exalting me. I wasn’t looking for it, I wondered what I was doing, but I wasn’t expecting this.

Psalm 142:

1 I cried unto the Lord with my voice; with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.

2 I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.

3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

4 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.

5 I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.

6 Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

7 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.

Most certainly that was King David, but that psalm, I’ve walked similar steps. KD has lived with me since 2009, she watched my eyes go into darkness, she’s had to take a hold of my hand and lead me around. Terre brown entered in and has been a great help, picking out my clothes, what I wear, dressing me, both of them; I’m talking about Kathie D and Terre Brown.

But in 2017, the “righteous shall compass thee about”, that got my attention. And they would see how God dealt bountifully, and I would think, (and I love the song, that Terre Brown does so beautifully) “Who Am I?” Those are the words of King David, “who am I?” sitting before the Lord. In late 1974, or 1975, I had a seat before the Lord and I said, “The things that thou has spoken, concerning thy servant and his household, establish it forever and do as thou hast said.” I prayed that many times, not knowing what it meant. I’ve learned. In January 2017, I received $152,000 in three checks, coming from a person that happened to be from his father’s estate and the Lord told him, “Give it all.” My Lord, my Lord, what a blessing that man has coming. I gave my house away to my ministry, gave the money to the ministry, bought a new Cadillac that I can’t see to drive. KD is my chauffer. Is it Midnight Blue? [Kathie: Something like that, they call it something else, but I call it Midnight Blue.]

Doyle: Isn’t that model—that was the first year for it? What’s it called? [Kathie: A CT6.] CT6, I get to ride in it, belongs to the Lord , belongs to Water of Life; KD is the official driver.

But a few weeks back, God brought me another co-host, one that heard me more than twenty years ago on radio. You think I’m not overcoming? A few months back, whenever it was, Bryan Bonner came from California to Plano. The man can pray as well as any person I’ve ever heard pray. He’s better than most and I needed his help. In Acts 16, Paul and Silas were in prison with praise, prayer, they came out. Revival started. Glory!

So, Sunday (12/3/2017), I got a check in the offering: $60,000. I said, “What do I do with this? What is this for?” God doesn’t give me $60,000 to keep. I thought “Well, I don’t what to do but put it in the treasury.” That’s where it’s been since Monday.

This morning at 2:00 AM, “Buy another Cadillac, just like you’ve got,” only you see, I happen to like white cars. I’ve drove I don’t’ know how many new Pontiac Catalinas, all but one were white; it was green and I never liked it. A man that I greatly admired, Grover Furr, Furr Motor Company Cadillac-Pontiac, McKinney, Texas said one day, “Pontiac has over thirty different colors of cars and Dr. Davidson thinks they are all white.”

Well I happen to respect him, and he did me, because I bought one to two cars from him every year. I said to KD this morning when God woke me up and I was praying, and told KD [what God had said] and I said, “I want to know if there is a white one.” Well we think there is, is that right? [Kathie: That’s right.] We know there is, is that right? [Kathie: That’s right.] So, you are going at about 2:30 to take a look, is that right? {Kathie: Right.]

Well that was cool. The Cadillac she drives has 12,000 miles, had it a year? [Kathie: Right.] I could see the Lord wanted Bryan Bonner to have that car. Great to get a new one, which is my car and yours, right? [Kathie: Right.] Its the Lord’s. KD is ready to get it, we’ll see but in two or three days, we’ll be bringing them both—KD in her white, Bryan driving the Midnight Blue, or whatever it is.

Folks let me tell you, God said I would be compassed by the righteous, and they would see that God dealt bountifully with me and keep adding to the righteous. Is that right KD? [Kathie: That’s right.] Glory!

Kathie: I do want to say something here, I remember when I was telling Dad about the first Cadillac, he couldn’t quite understand it and then I told him about the story of you being a veterinarian, when you went from being a veterinarian to a preacher you made one statement to God.

Doyle: Yes I did and I don’t mind you remembering it, and I don’t’ mind you telling it and I will say, “Yes I said it.”

Kathie: You want to tell it?

Doyle: Okay, the Lord took me out of a luxurious lifestyle and sent me to the wilderness to humble me, Deuteronomy 8:

And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

And I have. So, one day I said to the Lord, (I’m not sure all I said) but I said this, “Don’t think I’m going to take a pay cut!” Did you know he never said, “Oh yes you will.”

Kathie: Abraham never took a pay cut.

Doyle: Now, I’ve been in a state of want, lack, but it didn’t last, because I would pray and complain. Pour my complaint out to the Lord.

Kathie: How many times I’ve heard you on the bicycle, “Lord, where’s my money?”

Doyle: That’s what I do, “Lord, where’s my money? Where is my money? Where is my money?” One day he said, “It’s on the way to your office,” with a man I knew, and he used his name. The guy said, “I wasn’t so impressed he knew I had the money,” It was just $400, but I still needed $400 and I can make some noise about $400.

Kathie: When you need it, you need it, it doesn’t matter what it is. [Doyle: That’s right,] But you know what, God proved your prosperity when you were a veterinarian, before you went into the ministry. You were not poor when you went into the ministry.

Doyle: I was poor, I was wretched—would you turn to Revelation and read about the church at Laodicea? I went to the Methodist Church once in a while.

Kathie: We didn’t discuss THIS in the Methodist Church.

Revelation 3:

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Doyle: I will tell you, that was my great-grandfather’s family. James Madison Davidson, a Northern Methodist, died of tetanus, in 1911, seven days, and it changed the Davidsons’ hearts, you can read about it. But let me tell you, just because you go to church, just because you attend some building called a church, just because you think that you’ve got some kind of protection from going to hell, don’t kid yourself, your denomination will not keep you out of hell. Only Jesus Christ in your heart and the Father can keep you out of hell. Repent and believe my gospel.

Folks, you’re going to see these two (my co-hosts), you’re going to see their cars, them standing beside them, they belong to the Lord, they know it, but you’re going to see how God has bountifully treated this servant, Doyle Davidson

See ya’ next time. Amen.

My Sufferings for the Church

Transcribed and edited excerpt from:
Sunday November 26, 2017 10:00 AM Livestream Program

God sent Kathie D to me in 2009, she had been here (WOL) since 1984. Her and I had few conversations; we exchanged few words until the last Sunday of June 2008. God started talking about me and my ancestors; [they]came here so I could preach the gospel. Kathie showed up [afterwards] and started talking to me and I thought, “ I don’t even know what you’re talking about.” This woman is a prophetess. God sent Nathan to David, he sent Kathie D to Doyle as a prophetess. Believe me I have had prophets around me, they didn’t profit me much. This one got me off the floor on a Saturday night in April 2015. But that’s what not what we’re going to talk about. She brought new things to me that I had never seen in the bible, but God chose her to do that. One of them was Colossians 1:

1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,

2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

4 Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,

5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

7 As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;

8 Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

Can you believe that? You know, I know I am an apostle of the Lord. I know he sent me to the four corners of the earth but I tell you, before he did he had to have this prophetess minister Colossians 1 to me. You see, until God opens your eyes, you’re not going to get it, it doesn’t matter who you are, you’re not going to get it. You can see it, you can read it, you can talk about it, but until God opens your eyes you’re not going to see it.

Folks, that chapter, part of it was real difficult for me to believe. I want to tell you something, unbelief is pride, pride is unbelief. I would have never guessed, I would have never dreamed, I would have never read, I could have never seen with my eyes, what God had prepared for me. I wouldn’t have believed the Lord would have done to me, or let happen to me what has happened. I would have thought it would be pride to talk about it, but friends, it’s humility to accept what God has done with you. It’s not easy to believe that God would allow sins of his people to be laid upon me. It wasn’t easy, very difficult, but you know v. 24,

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:

I have suffered greatly in the flesh for you. Is that right?

Kathie: Yes, that’s right, in fact in the next verse it says Paul was given for that very purpose:

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God (that means he got a job he didn’t ask for) which is given to me for you…

That was the very reason God sent Paul.

Doyle: I’m barely believing this stuff, but when you’ve walked as I have walked for the past [soon to be] nine years, and learned all the sin that has been laid upon my soul by God’s people, that through my afflictions, you are honored. That’s Ephesians 3:13

Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory (honor).

It’s not been easy to accept this. It’s not been easy to know that sins of people that were married to your soul, my soul, and they were alive in me, I took them in place of you. Is that right KD? [Kathie: That’s what the verse says.] I am grateful that God counted me worthy to do this office—to take the sins that were committed and the afflictions from the sins that were behind, and put them on my soul. This prophetess, by the Spirit of God, opened my eyes to see this.

Kathie: He opened my eyes first. You know Paul says on more than once occasion, “I’m a prisoner of the Lord.”

Doyle: Yes. Well that’s what I am. You know, I can see the love of God and having someone suffer in the flesh for you, because you couldn’t have handled the suffering. Do you agree KD?

Kathie: That’s what the word says. It says God made Paul “a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you,

In other words, he got the ministry from God, for those people. It says in the previous verse:

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake,

And he’s talking about the Church.

Doyle: You know, yesterday was an interesting day; they all are for me, because every day my eyes are opened more and more. KD and I were talking sometime yesterday about giving thanks, [in the daily program] 1 Timothy 2. I’ve taught this for years, I could give thanks for people, but does it hurt. I’ve learned this, if there is anybody you can’t give thanks for, you’ve got trouble; anybody that you can’t thank God for, you’ve got trouble in your life, in your heart, in your spirit, in your faith. But I’m going to tell you this, you can speak it in the flesh and it’s not profitable, but you can give thanks for someone with faith and it will profit you, it will profit them. Oh what a savior!

Kathie: You know it’s interesting, along that line, Jesus at the last supper, when he gave thanks, do you know, Judas was right there, and you know, Jesus needed Judas.

Doyle: But I started, I thanked God for someone, and I could tell there was faith with it. Now let me tell you something: I’ve learned, that the sins that have been laid upon my soul, sins of other people, have to be forgiven by me; they’d have to be forgiven by me, and its only faith that you could forgive them. And did you know that it is only God that can prepare your heart with faith and repentance, for the sins that were laid upon you. This has been a lesson that I’ve had to walk out, and I forgive that sin that you committed that’s laid on me; I have to forgive you for it.

I know you don’t understand this. That’s alright, neither did I, but I am getting there. Thank God. I’ve suffered for your sins, suffered the pain and I’m grateful that I can, and overcome, and forgive you for laying those sins on me. Are you getting this? I have to forgive you for laying your sins on me. Last night I talked and asked people to pray about Hebrews 12; I could tell I was striving against sin. I thought, “What is this?” Striving against sin, but not unto blood and I asked people to pray for me. I sent a message out and asked them to pray for me. I needed help and I didn’t know why.

KD heard this, she heard it at night as I did: every time I would wake up I’d be thanking God. Is that right? [Kathie: That is right.] When you’d wake up you’d hear me thanking God and you know at 5:00 AM this morning, KD went downstairs, she does that frequently and I stayed in my bed praying, which I do, and things started coming up, sins that people committed against me, they were laid on my soul and those sins were manifesting, and I was living them, they were alive in me and they hurt, they were painful. And I suffered with them. This is what I didn’t know, what I couldn’t believe, that I was going to suffer for what you’ve sinned. Jesus took up suffering for the whole world, I’ve just taken some that were left behind. Is that right KD? [Kathie: That’s right]

Bryan did you know this has taught me a lot this night. Do you have anything?

Bryan: Only one thing, what came to mind as you were sharing such a deep word, was the cup that Jesus described, and he said at the time the twelve s weren’t able to receive that cup, but they would. And it was just amazing me to hear you speaking and describing that cup. And I was whoa! That’s the cup right there and Jesus also made a statement in Luke 12:48:

But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

And I’ve come to see that we really don’t understand a lot in this walk that we have. What God commits to us is what we come to learn and understand as we walk with him. And as I heard what you were going through as you gave it from your words, I began to see what God had committed to you and what God committed to you is a great thing but there is a lot required. And I don’t think that’s to scare anyone away, I don’t think you should be afraid of what God is committing to you in your life because he has given you grace and the faith to walk it through and it’s for the benefit of the body. What Doyle has experienced has been a benefit to all of us because he has shown us that he is more than able to keep his servant standing. And that is the very encouraging part to me is seeing how God has kept Doyle standing and kept him walking through this just as Jesus walked through all of our sins. It’s very encouraging.

Doyle: I want to tell you something, a bunch of Baptist preachers got after me in the seventies, I lost a large portion of bone around my teeth from the stress. My dentist said, “What have you been doing?” I said, “I haven’t been doing anything.” I wasn’t about to tell him that a bunch of Baptist preachers tried to destroy me, and they got Derek Prince involved, a friend of mine. So, I had to have gum surgery because of the bone. They told me if I could keep my teeth five years I would be very fortunate. I used my faith, I believed God and I kept them much longer. Amazing, in 2000 I was flying home from a crusade in Anaheim and I lost a bunch of teeth out of my mouth. They went downhill rapidly. Last night, for an hour my mouth was so sore. I’m not any longer prideful, I have one tooth left in my head. I’ve had people try to pay for me to go to the dentist. “No, I will not.” I thought, “I’ve got more money than you’ve got.” I didn’t say that but that’s what I knew. When I start talking here [on set] about the Baptist preachers, my mouth was hurting, it’s almost all gone. Did you know I’ve got a new set of teeth coming? You know who destroyed them? God’s people. The ones, teeth that I had my dentist take great care of.

Chico Holiday – “The Law Of The Lord Is Perfect”

1970 to 1977 I made minimal amount of money, it wasn’t easy, I’m not going to talk about it now, but in 1977 God told me to give $100 a week to the United Methodist Church of McKinney and my prosperity took off, by the Lord, not by Doyle’s flesh and then I started having my teeth cared for by my dentist; I had a couple in Dallas. In 1989 God told me not to go back to the dentist. In 1990 they started coming out. Wasn’t easy, but I had to obey God. I had the money, I had the friends, the best dentist, of course your dentist is always the best, right? Best friends in Dallas and McKinney. I never considered going back to a dentist. I could have the best, they could have fixed [my mouth]. My mouth is a mess, but the Lord knows it and I do little complaining and I won’t. Thought you ought to know why my mouth is like it is. John chapter 9, a young child was blind, and the question was, is this the sins of the parents, or someone else?

John 9:

1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

That’s why my mouth is like it is, for the glory of God. You say, “You’re an idiot.”

I’m a fool for Christ sake.

Learning How to Pray Through

Transcribed and edited from:
Tuesday October 10, 2017 11:00 AM Livestream Program

Hello, I’m Doyle Davidson, servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ ministering locally to the body of Christ in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, sent by God to your house to declare unto you the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 tell us what the gospel is, how that Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, he was buried, he rose again the third day.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he’s anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, sent me to heal the broken hearted, preach deliverance to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, set at liberty them that are bruised.

The word is nigh thee, even in your heart and in your mouth, that is the word of faith which I preach if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, believe in your heart that God hath raised from the dead you shall be saved, for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

I’m not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation, to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, the just shall live by his faith.

I want to welcome everyone to this broadcast, receiving it on Livestream, Roku, AppleTV, YouTube, and other devices. Kathie Davidson, co-host to my left, Good morning, how are you? [Kathie: I’m doing well.] Good. After the singing, Kathie D is going to interview me. Right?

Kathie: Right. I’m going to ask you some questions that will benefit all of us.

Doyle: You’re going to hear stuff that you have never guessed came from Redwood Church.


Terry Mai and Water of Life Boys (recorded songs):
“I Am”
“There Stood A Lamb”

The Mai Girls (recorded song):
“To Him Who Sits On The Throne”

So, you want to ask me some questions and I’m going to follow the leading of the Holy Ghost and answer questions probably in much broader that you might think.

Kathie: Well amen. I went back to my office and was praying, getting ready for the program and the Spirit of God said, “Ask him about what it means to pray through.” We had talked about it the other day, about Elliott Hodge and his praying through and I know there are a lot of people that do not understand, have never experienced praying something through and I know you have a lot of experience in that area and you are a teacher.

Doyle: Well amen. Well, Kathie first, I have to repent because I didn’t think my dad, my father was as spiritual as he was. He was not a man that showed much emotion; he prayed, and his prayers didn’t sound like they had a lot of strength, but I’m going to tell you something, he was a man that could believe God like nobody I’ve never met. His sister Velma, (he had three sisters) and she was not the believer she thought she was, but one time she was talking to me, (I love Dad’s family and I love Mother’s family; the Millers totally different from the Davidsons) but I was talking to Aunt Velma and she was talking about Dad, and she said, “You know Lyle.” And you know, I knew what she was saying, she thought he was simple, so did I, that was my problem. The man obviously had childlike faith. He had three brothers, three sisters, none of them could get close to his level of faith. He just amazed me.

He had a tremendous engineering mind and heart. I had more of a analytical mind than Dad. Dad could think something through and it would come to pass; so I was a lot like him, enough like Mother, but as a young boy, (I was a prophet I learned later, ordained to the nations before I came forth from my mother’s womb). I’m almost embarrassed to talk for my three sisters because they all seemed to think they were more spiritual than Doyle and it didn’t bother me, I didn’t care, I was comfortable within my own skin. Now I understand, sounds prideful, obviously I could hear God as a small boy and they couldn’t, I just don’t know. Love them, all three of them, loved Mother and Dad. Dad just amazed me, he absolutely embarrassed my pride, how he could think and how he could believe.

The people at Redwood Church (and that was the only place I had experience knowing them) we had camp meeting, been there half a dozen times, but I never saw at the Independence Camp Meeting anything that I didn’t see in Redwood Church. I didn’t hear anything at Independence Camp meeting that I didn’t hear at Redwood Church. So Redwood had to be ordained of God. And I’m going to say this: Redwood Church was established for Doyle Davidson. I suppose I’d like to have it today, but I don’t’ know what I’d do with it. Out of Redwood Church came Lyle and Alba’s son and he was a keen observer of other people. He [Doyle] had a discernment about other people that was at times uncanny to me. There were people at Redwood Church and I won’t at all speak of other churches, camp meeting, because, they just were not Lyle. Are you with me? [Kathie: Ya]

Dad would settle things in his heart through meditation and thinking on the word. Others would pray and make a show, Dad wouldn’t do that. He wasn’t that way, and Mother certainly wasn’t. People thought Lyle and Alba were less spiritual than others because of their quiet demeanor. But you let Dad get into the Spirit—I’m talking about, I’m showing you how to pray through, you follow me? [Kathie: Amen.] He knew in his heart the answer he was looking for. He amazed me. It seemed to me that the Lord would answer him before he even called. I think I’m repenting, ashamed of myself still of how little I thought Dad knew what he was doing, until I got in the Charismatic movement. And when I got with them, it wasn’t long and I said, “It’s time to talk to Lyle.” Do you follow me? [Kathie: I follow you.] I want you to know I’m happy to be Lyle Davidson’s son.

Dad loved apple pie ala-mode, he loved it and Dad was a contractor and traveled in his pickup and trucks a lot, he drove a lot, a hard worker, smart about his business. He knew things would work before he started. I think he had the mind of Christ. He wasn’t baptized in the Holy Ghost, thought he was, but he wasn’t.

One day he was in Joplin and he had been to the doctor’s office because he had ulcers and Dr. Detar, who Betty my sister worked for, and of course he knew everyone of us because of her, he told Dad, “You know, your problem is you keep everything inside of you and you won’t tell anybody, but you do some worrying, that’s what caused your ulcers. I asked Dad once, “Did you ever worry?”


“How’d you stop?”

He said, “I just quit.”

You know why? I think God used Dr. Detar to point out to him a weakness and Dad did something with it. So, he had been in Detar’s office and it’s eleven miles back to Fidelity and Dad told the Lord, “I’m going to stop up here at this restaurant and I’m going to have a piece of apple pie, ice cream ala-mode, and if I die from eating it,” because he was sick, “If I die, I’m coming to heaven with ulcers and it will be alright.” He went in and ate it, walked out, never had another problem, never had any more ulcers. But you know what? The man had it in his heart, what he believed. He just wasn’t somebody that prayed for a week or hours, but he believed all the time and I know this is not you’re exact question, but did you know that’s the greatest asset I have, is I can finally believe. You follow me? [Kathie: I follow you.] You know me, don’t you? [Kathie: Yes.]

Redwood talked of praying through. They would say, “You must have an assurance, that you’ve received what you’re praying for.” [Kathie: Amen.] You understand that don’t you? [Kathie: Oh yes I do, very much so.] I’m not sure where this is at, maybe Hebrews 32:17, but the work of righteousness is peace, and the effect of righteousness is quietness and assurance forever.

Isaiah 32:17:
“And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.”

People at Redwood would say pray about what you’re praying for until you have an assurance in you. Well, you know what that assurance is? It’s the effect of righteousness. I will tell you, I was ashamed of my hard heart. Dad, and Mother to a degree, she didn’t have Dad’s confidence, but those two got some results. Dad broke his jaw down in Forsyth when they were building Table Rock Dam; Dad moved that town out upon the hill and had a steel bar hit him in the jaw and broke it, and he went to Dr. Threadgill, whose office is in Branson and he had an office in Forsyth and of course Dad knew everyone in town and everyone in the country knew him, because every time they turned around, he was taking a house up that hill. People would come, drive miles to watch.

Kathie: It’s amazing, he moved a whole town.

Doyle: Well it wasn’t a thousand, it was five or six hundred people.

Kathie: Right but it was like one hundred buildings, wasn’t it?

Doyle: Oh, I’m sure he did, took them up a hill that was crooked, it wasn’t wide enough to take a 24’ house up, yet he took 42’ up it. He amazed me. He knew just how to load one of them. [Photo]

It wasn’t that he was a genius, but he had brains that were functional.

Kathie: He had the mind of Christ.

Doyle: Well that’s the way I feel about it. But anyway, his jaw was broken and Threadgill checked him in Forsyth and said, “Lyle, you’ve got a fracture here as wide as a pencil, I can feel it in your lower jaw, mandible.” Well good Lord, here’s your mandible, if there’s something there as wide as a pencil, a kid could feel there’s a soft spot there. And so Threadgill told Dad, “I’m going to have to x-ray it and put a pin in it, meet me in Branson. Do you want me to have an ambulance pick you up?”

“Nope, I’ll drive my pickup.” So he does. He gets over there to Threadgill’s office, he x-rayed him he comes out and he says, “Lyle, there’s a very thin line where it looks like a fracture happened, but there isn’t one.” Dad said, “Well on my way over here I was talking to the Lord.” Probably told him he didn’t have time, he needed to go to work. But he was healed. Dad, the man—his faith was unreal. I’ve got it and I know it, boy do I ever know it.

I had to deal with my fears more than he did. Well he wouldn’t admit it. My intellect gave me trouble, I trusted in it too much. You’ve got to pray until you know it in your heart, not in your mind. That’s praying through, you hear me?

Kathie: I love one of the stories of Elliott Hodge because the Davidsons are involved in it. When they brought Elliott Hodge in, he accidentally shot his shoulder off with a shotgun, and he was in the hospital and they said they called people to come pray because he was told he was going to die. And they called Neva, they called Luther, [Doyle: Floyd] and Floyd’s dad, your grandfather [Doyle: Lute] and a group of people, I think there were ten or fifteen and they all came to the hospital and they said you need to pray so that this man lives. They went into a part of the hospital and I remember they started praying so loud, it was a Catholic hospital, they said they never heard such praying and it scared a bunch of them. But he said they stayed there and prayed through and when they were finished and they knew, and they told Elliott, “We prayed through and you’re going to live.’ [Doyle: Right.] “We know you’re going to live,” and Elliott knew he was going to live, even though he died about eight times after that, but he lived. One of them said, “We got through to heaven,” or something like that.

Doyle: Well, ya, that’s the way they talked. If they didn’t get through to heaven, how are they going to get an answer?

Kathie: And that’s what Elliott was telling that nurse. He said, “You have to get through, once you get through you have your answer, but you have to get through to God.”

You have an amazing story, a testimony of praying through, you said for a long time, you said it was like your prayers hit a ceiling, a concrete, [Doyle: Concrete wall], in the sky. [Doyle: Sure did.] You said your prayers wouldn’t get through. [Doyle: Right.] And then one night, if you’ll share, you broke through that concrete wall.

Doyle: I was in Louisville, Texas, in a dental office, (1974 or 1975), Dr. Weldon Parks, DDS used to be a great friend of mine, he’s still alive. We went there and prayed about forty-five minutes, [Kathie: So you had already prayed forty-five minutes?] Ya and I said, “Alright, I’m getting a drink of water and we’re going to pray,” and someone said, “Pray? I thought that’s what we had been doing?”

“No,” I said, “We’re going to pray.” Now what did I mean? I’m going to pray in faith, believing.

Kathie: You mean you can pray without faith and without believing?

Doyle: Why goodness yes, that’s what most do. They pray, their prayers are in their mouth, between their ears. A prayer to God is faith in your heart and do you ever know it when faith is working, and the reason it won’t work is because of your unbelief. Faith is in your heart, good Lord, if you’re saved, you have faith in your heart, but the reason you can’t pray in faith is because you don’t believe. Now, I can tell you this, when I’m praying, if I know I’m not believing, “This is not good, this is terrible, I would be better off to be fishing!” I’m that honest before God. You follow me? [Kathie: I follow you.] I don’t let my pride get me. I can tell you when my faith is halfway up in my heart, up in my belly, halfway, the reason it is only halfway, because I’m not believing to get it up. I tell you, sometimes you’ve got to be angry at the devil. You’ve got to get hot, you’ve got to be angry at the devil, you hear me? And determined to push him out of your way!

There was a prophet once prophesied about my determination, strong will. If I can’t tell faith is working, if I can’t tell I’ve got faith from my lower belly up, I keep praying, I keep praying. I keep praying, something has got to come loose, some spirit you’ve got to overcome, if you’re determined. If you just mouth prayers, you never pray through. Never pray through. You get it? I’ve had people say, “I’ve got it Doyle.”

Kathie: Back to the dentist’s office, you left us off with, “I’m going to get a drink of water and now we’re going to pray.”

Doyle: Right, I was determined and I don’t really like to kneel. Doesn’t bother me but my knees get tired. I would rather set down and pray, do you follow me? [Kathie: I follow you.] I can stand up and pray but I really like to set down and pray. And when I go from that chair, out on my knees, get ready, I’m about to break through and I know it. Oh, how wonderful it is to know that you have prayed through, you’re assured your faith is working and you have touched God, you have touched the very God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob with your faith. You getting it?

You know my mother couldn’t get loud, but she did. That story will be up on my website, go there and read it. [click here to read.] She lived five more years after that, but I was quiet just like her, prideful.

Kathie: So how many people were in that dentist office?

Doyle. Four. Oh that’s right.

Kathie: I’m going to make you finish that story.

Doyle: You want to hear this, ok.

Kathie: This is going to help somebody.

Doyle: I prayed and I said, “I’m covered by the blood, covered by the blood of Jesus, Devil you get that? I’m born again! Born again Satan, do you get that? I’m saved, you get that? I am covered by the blood of Jesus, you get it? I’m justified, by faith in blood of Jesus, you get that Satan? I’m righteous by faith in the blood of Jesus and I reign and I rule in this life through Jesus Christ!” I didn’t tell him I was sanctified because I wasn’t sure. Folks, when you get assured in your faith of who you are and who God is and who your enemy is you will pray through! Glory!

So I kept praying, “And I have no fear of you!” I probably said, “I know who you are devil!” It took me a long time to get the courage to say that, you know that? [Kathie: I gotcha.] I thought if you don’t tell him you know him he might not know who you are. Ya, sure. “I know you Devil, I know what you’re up to and I have authority over you and I know you’re going to bow your knee, in the name of Jesus.” I pray all kinds of ways and in a little bit I saw what looked like a concrete ceiling over me. I saw that concrete crack. Glory! I saw that thing crack and something down inside of me rose up stronger, it had to be Jesus and I saw that thing crack a little bit, it just started opening up, half and half. Oh was I happy, I knew I’d prayed through. Not only that, I broke through in the heavenlies.

You see, you have to break through the heavenlies to get to God. That’s where your wars at. Amen, well, I was through. Somebody said, “Man, you just broke through concrete.” I thought, “Hmm, you’re absolutely right.”

Kathie: That was 1974, [1975] things started changing after that didn’t they?

Doyle: Oh ya. I’ve got to tell this. Redwood Church had some people that knew how to pray and they could pray at the altar with you. Oh they would. They’d pray there with you and some of them were loud, some of them weren’t so loud, but they’d know, they had an assurance. They had a witness in their heart, “This person just got born again,” and they’d ask you, “What are you thinking in your heart?”

“Oh, I feel good.”

“What do you mean good?”

“Well I’ve got a peace like I’ve never had in my life.”

Kathie: Isaiah, “assurance of peace.” You know you taught us about that warfare and it says in Ephesians, “Having done all, when you know you’ve prayed through, stand.” [Doyle: Praying.] Stand praying, until it comes into fruition, but you know it’s coming into fruition anyway, but you stand and you don’t let go until you see it come to pass.

Doyle: You stand and pray until you are assured that it’s yours and you don’t have to pray for that one again. You’ve got it folks. Now this is the only kind of prayer that I trust. You got it? [Kathie: I’ve got it.] Listen I’ve prayed for five years to get out of this darkness, I’m not out yet, but I thought I was in a pit. I’ve never been in a pit. If I could have heard, but Satan had my faith blocked and my soul full of doubt, fears, I couldn’t even hear Psalm 143, that I had been smitten down to the ground like a man long time dead, I could not get that, I didn’t hear it, smitten down to the ground. Well I’m not in the pit, I’m walking on this earth, praying.

Kathie: You know I took that story about the concrete, and I had a situation in Frisco, in 2006 and I knew we had to do something with the sign business and I was no longer working in it and I knew something had to be done with it and God led me to pray kind of like that, I had to pray for two weeks, and at the end of the two weeks, I knew, that I knew, that I knew what I had come to God with that I had gotten my answer, but nothing changed until two weeks later and then it happened, everything that I had prayed for came through.

Doyle: Thank God amen, Glory be to the Father, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, glory hallelujah, amen!

Now let me say, praying through, you know you’re finished. If you still have prayer in your heart, you haven’t prayed through. If you have a witness in your heart, you know it.

Kathie: Beautiful feeling.

Doyle: Yes. Thank God, hallelujah! Mercy, grace, mercy grace…

Kathie: God bless, see you tomorrow.
