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...

Challenging the Spirit of the Discipleship Movement (continued)

The spirit of the Discipleship Movement was evident as far back as the sixth century in the Catholic Church and it was also evident in John Wesley’s teachings. John Wesley was an Anglican who founded the Methodist Church in England and America and established a form of discipleship in the Methodist Church. I also see the spirit of discipleship operating in every denomination of the “so-called” church, today. It is a dominating, ruling spirit; it is the gentile spirit. If you read the postings on my web page A Nation Bringing Forth Fruit, about the Puritans, who arrived in America in the early 1630s, it is evident they were also a ruling, dominating group, operating in that same spirit.

The Catholic Church believes they have preeminence in the earth and all will become subject to them. But that is not true. I am an Apostle, sent by God to the world and I have authority over the pope, the cardinals, the bishops, all of them and we are building the body of Christ. My authority is through the apostle and prophet Jesus, in me. I do not do my own will; I do the will of the Father. I don’t speak my own words; I speak the words of the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, by the Spirit.

The influence of the Catholic Church extends to the Church of England, the Anglican Church and denominations which have come out the Anglican Church, and there are many. Derek Prince also grew up in the Anglican Church.

Discipleship was also taught and practiced by Watchman Nee. Watchman Nee (born Nee Shu Tsu) was born in China in1903 to second generation Methodist parents. He was born again at age seventeen while still in high school and chose the name Watchman for himself as he believed God raised him up as a watchman to “sound a warning in the dark night”. It is said he read a great number of spiritual books and had a collection of over 3000 books which included all the classical writers from the First century, on. He became familiar with many of these books through Margaret Barber, an Anglican missionary.

When God sent me back to Texas I planned on re-establishing my equine veterinary practice and instead God put me in the Holiday Inn for ten weeks. Bob Mumford had recommended the book, The Normal Christian Life, by Watchman Nee and I brought it with me from Florida. It was about the book of Romans and after I read part way through the book I thought, “I can read as well as anyone, I don’t need to read this book, I can read Romans myself.” I spent those ten weeks in the Holiday Inn, studying the first five chapters in Romans and in those 10 weeks and those five chapters in Romans, God revealed to me that I was justified by faith and I was on my way out of the Holiday Inn! Someone else gave me the book Spiritual Authority, by Watchman Nee and after I had read about two-thirds of it I said, “This is not of God; it’s not God at all. This is the devil.” I didn’t need to read any more books or commentaries about the bible. I was a capable student when I was at the university, my instructors finding me doing research which was beyond their knowledge and ability to even grade. Therefore, I concluded I didn’t need anyone else to tell me what the bible said, I could read and study it myself, and God said He would give me understanding and I have found that to be true.

Acts 5:

32) “And we are his witnesses of these things, and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.”

Without the baptism of the Holy Spirit, there can be no revelation. Even the prophets of the old Testament had the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ anointed in them. John Wesley and Watchman Nee were not baptized in the Holy Spirit. I didn’t need to read books of men; I could read, I could hear God’s voice, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit and He was revealing His word to me.

The spirit of discipleship in the charismatic movement wasn’t really from Derek Prince, originally. In 1972 while I was in Hollywood, Florida, I was at a meeting at Don Bohl’s house in Ft. Lauderdale and two young men from Juan Carlos Ortiz’s ministry (which was out of Argentina), spoke at the meeting and introduced discipleship. I happened to be outside in the parking lot as the two Ortiz men left that meeting and I overheard them talking, they said, “Well, we’ve delivered the message to the hotshots, now let’s see what they do with it.” Though they may have been correct in their choice of words about the men at that meeting, I thought they were rather arrogant themselves. Bob Mumford and Charles Simpson brought the discipleship teaching into the Charismatic movement after they had heard the teachings of Juan Carlos Ortiz. The reason Bob Mumford and Charles Simpson received those teachings was because their hearts liked what they were hearing. Bob was raised Pentecostal and Charles was born to a Southern Baptist preacher.

I heard Derek say on a tape, which I believe was recorded at a meeting in Naples, Florida, “I have no confidence in what Bob and Charles are doing.” (At that time they had begun putting into practice what Juan Carlos Ortiz’s ministry had brought to them.) Ralph Martin was a catholic who had a discipleship ministry in Michigan, and Bobbie Cavnar’s son Jim had joined with him in his ministry. I knew Bobbie Cavnar very well, I worked as his veterinarian when he was president of Meat Producers, Inc., a D. H. Byrd & Co. Enterprise. Bobbie was a decorated air force pilot and received the commission of colonel at age 33. Cavnar was introduced to the charismatic movement by his son Jim and received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. He went on to found the God’s Delight Community in Dallas, Texas, a group that belongs to a world-wide association of lay communities formally recognized by the Vatican and their local bishops. In a conversation with Ralph Martin, Derek said he didn’t know what he should do about joining with what Bob Mumford and Charles Simpson were involved in. Martin’s reply was, “Well you don’t have a choice.” And Derek said, “I think you’re right.”

Bob Mumford wrote about his relationship with the others of the Fort Lauderdale Five and states on his website that they were all from different religious backgrounds and it was “a diversification of teaching which would provide a unique balance”.

I Corinthians 1:

10) “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, that you be perfectly joined in the same mind and in the same judgment.”

Do you notice it says we are all to speak the same thing? It doesn’t say anything about diversification.

In 1987 God had me call Derek and tell him that he and Kenneth Hagin were not obedient to God and were gathered by men and cast into the fire. Derek said, “Do you think brother Hagin is in bondage?” I had just said they were and he didn’t hear that, all he heard was Hagin was in bondage. He was blinded as in II Corinthians 4:

4) “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

When I first met Derek, he had a car, a bible, a few books in his trunk and Lydia. He was teaching the bible and I thought Proverbs 4:18 might describe him, “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” I had heard Derek minister this scripture and according to his biography, he had stated to the leaders of the Pentecostal Assemblies, “I am called to be a teacher of the scriptures in the body of Christ.”

Lydia was very troubled about Derek’s involvement with the discipleship group and their doctrine. Derek related to Stephen Mansfield, author of, Derek Prince a Biography, “She loved the men we ministered with in Ft. Lauderdale, but she sensed something was wrong with the direction we were going. She kept telling me it had a wrong spirit attached to it.” Derek couldn’t remember her specific words, but he said, “I’ve been told that not long before she died she turned to a friend with whom she had been discussing discipleship and said, almost in tears, “They’ve got my Derek.” (I would like to know who the person was that she shared this with.)

The Shepherds of Fort Lauderdale met in Oklahoma City March 1976 and issued the following “Statement of Concern and Regret”:

“We realize that controversies and problems have arisen among Christians in various areas as a result of our teaching in relation to subjects such as submission, authority, discipling and shepherding. We deeply regret these problems and, insofar as they are due to fault on our part, we ask forgiveness from our fellow believers whom we have offended. We realize that our teachings, though we believe them to be essentially sound, have in various places been misapplied or handled in an immature way: and that this has caused problems for our brothers in the ministry. We deeply regret this and ask forgiveness. Insofar as it lies in our power, we will do our best to correct these situations and to restore any broken relationships.” (The statement is signed by Don Basham, Ern Baxter, Bob Mumford, John Poole, Derek Prince and Charles Simpson.)

At the time of their meeting in Oklahoma when they wrote and signed this statement, these men were putting great pressure on me. A few months after they met in Oklahoma, the meeting at Orlando Reyes house occurred and the group of Dallas ministers brought false witness against me and Derek never opened his mouth in my defense. They continued to push me to come under their authority; Derek’s words to me were, “You need supervision.”

By the grace and mercy of God I was not gathered by these men. I walked with them, trying the spirits, whether they be of God or not until the day came that I overcame the spirits they were walking in and I was finished. I knew Jesus was not Lord of what they were doing.

I was ordained a prophet in my mother’s womb to the nations before I came forth. That is why I could stand against all of them.

God Bless,
Doyle Davidson
Servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ

Making of A Prophet - Ice Cream, Deliverance and Healing

Testimonies of Doyle Davidson

I have a testimony I want to share with you. I was in Argyle and a lady called me and wanted to know if she could talk to me. “Of course,” I said. She came to my house and she said, “I need to talk to you” and I could tell she was an unhappy person. I said, “Well, let me get a bowl of ice cream first.” I don’t eat ice cream very often but sometimes I just think its right just to let the devil know he can’t mess with my enjoyment of eating ice cream. I got it, put it in a dish, walked over and sat down and said, “What can I do for you?” She said, “I’m leaving my husband.” “No you’re not, you’re going home to him, you hear me?” Tore her heart apart. That’s the way God talks sometimes to rebellious women.

In 1976, I got out of Argyle (I thought I was one step from heaven, I might have been, I don’t know) and moved to Carrollton, Texas and I was praying. My grandfather on mother’s side was about forty when his knees became very sore. He had arthritis in them and from then on, if he had to walk any distance he usually had to use a cane. People would say to me, “Well you know your grandfather’s knees went out when he was about forty,” and of course the devil said, “And yours will too.” I had gotten out of Argyle and that was enough and I’m living in Carrollton and I liked to walk and I still do. I walk in the fellowship hall a lot, in fact I came down here last night after having dinner, (KD came with me) and I walked for an hour; I am not weak, nor do I quit.

It was June 1976 in Carrollton and I went out one evening to walk, about 4:00 or 5:00, late afternoon, early evening and my knees started hurting. I was walking on concrete, on the sidewalk (I wasn’t afraid to walk on asphalt or concrete) and my knees hurt, they hurt so bad and I started speaking Isaiah 53:4-5. “Surely you have bore my sicknesses and carried my pains, yet I did esteem him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted, but he was wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities, the chastisement of my peace was upon him and with his stripes I was healed.” I walked two miles speaking that with all that was in me and people looked at me like “This guy is nuts.” I got back home and my knees hurt all night.

The next morning when I got up I said, “Devil, at 4:00 I’m going for a walk, get it straight!” Four o’clock, out walking, “Surely you have bore my sicknesses, carried my pains, yet I did esteem him stricken and smitten of God and afflicted, but he was wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities and the chastisement of my peace was upon him and with his stripes I was healed.” After about a mile and a half, the power of God hit my knees and healed them— 1976—you know they haven’t hurt since? They are free too. That’s the power of God. I jogged for years on asphalt, concrete and I will again. Oh I will—you will see me jogging up Eighteenth Street in Plano—don’t faint, it will be me. Glory! When God does something, He does a good job; no, He does a perfect job. My knees don’t hurt ever, I don’t have any of this medial ligament problems folks, for you joggers that are scared to jog, afraid any moment that you are going to go lame, you’re lame in the head, that’s your problem.

Loose them from fear, in Jesus name! Set them free! Fear, doubt, unbelief, let them go! Turn them loose Satan! Loose them! Loose them! Turn them loose now, in Jesus name!

A Work of Righteousness - 2006

Brought Before the Council

But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. Mark 13:9

The Schlosser Trial. My doorbell rang one morning and when I went to the door I was handed a subpoena by the office of the District Attorney of Collin County Texas. I was 73 years of age. I was told to arrive on a certain date at what is now the old Collin County Court House. The subpoena required me to appear in court as a witness at the Dena Schlosser trial. I could not see that I had any reason to be subpoenaed to that trial. I checked in with the officer at the court and was told to wait. For three days I waited. At the end of each day the District Attorney’s Office would come to me, ask me two or three questions, and then ask me to return the next day. At the end of the third day they released me from the subpoena. The next morning, the fourth day of the trial, at about 8:00AM, I received a phone call from a representative of the District Attorney’s Office requesting that I be at his office in 30 minutes to answer questions about Dena Schlosser. I arrived at the Collin County Court House somewhere around 11:00 AM. I was directed to wait in a very small holding room off the courtroom. The room had a coffee bar. The presiding judge came into that room and asked me if he could have a cup of coffee. I said, “Well, it’s yours, I guess so.”

Within a few minutes I was ordered to the witness stand. I was sworn in and began being questioned by Dena Schlosser’s defense team for some one and a half hours or more. I was asked many questions that were not at all relevant to the trial. I answered every question with dignity and boldness. At the end of the questioning Schlosser’s defense attorney asked me if I had been treated fairly that day. My response was, “Absolutely.” Then a member of the district attorney’s office asked me if I was present in that room when Dena severed her daughter’s arms. My response was, “Absolutely not.” I was released from the witness stand and let go.

Delivering Terre Brown. In September of 1992 I was conducting a home bible study in Richardson, Texas and Terre Brown was present. The Spirit of the Lord directed me to deliver her. Over the ensuing years I prayed with her from time to time. I watched her being delivered when just she and I prayed, in the fellowship hall, and then regular scheduled prayer with a group of people. Then in April God ordered me to deliver her. I asked Terry Mai to join me and we prayed every day for about one and one-half hours. There was powerful deliverance. On the fifth day I asked Basil Clark to join us. The three of us prayed until the 9th day. We saw some powerful deliverance of witchcraft in Terre Brown’s life.

Delivering Terry Mai. I was scheduled for a meeting in Joplin on April 29th. I took Terry Mai with me and the two of us flew to the meeting. For one hour on the plane I loosed Terry Mai from the attack of the Jezebel and her witchcrafts. I was shocked at what the Jezebel through her witchcrafts had done to Terry Mai. I wondered how he could have believed the gospel and those spirits could have afflicted him.

Bill Castor’s Wreck. I had just finished a meeting in Joplin on May 20th. On the plane flying back to McKinney I told Basil Clark and Terry Mai, “I’ve got to get home, get off this plane, and pray.” Sometimes I have to pray by myself. After I got to my home I received a phone call. It was a woman; she asked me my identity. I told her who I was, and then she asked me if I knew Bill Castor. I said, “You mean the attorney from Tulsa Oklahoma?” She replied yes, then she described to me his accident. She said she was with him and would stay with him until the care flight helicopter arrived. The accident happened on I-44 at Big Cabin, Oklahoma. She stayed on the phone with me until help came and took him to Tulsa. I think today Castor has forgotten that my prayers saved his life.

Justin Lerhke ministered with me on national television in November, Mike Carter ministered with me in December.

Gospel Crusades. We continued to hold weekly meetings in Joplin, Tulsa, Lakeville, and Houston and chartered churches in these cities. Terry Mai went to Tulsa and Joplin on Saturdays and Sundays beginning in September.

We opened the mission back up on the West Side, giving food and clothing away in September.

Basil Clark came on staff in February.

Vickie Willmarth joined the staff and Neil Dodge was no longer on staff in March.

Went off Fox TV in Tulsa and went on KQCW in Tulsa, Monday through in October.

We no longer conducted meetings in Frisco in April.

A Work of Righteousness - 2005

Overcoming Powers and Principalities

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

What I spoke about the power of darkness at the beginning of 2004 was not a surprise to me. First of all, by this time I had been walking and serving God for over thirty-four years. I knew as God had told me, I was to have a ministry like the Lords, and I knew the power of darkness hit him. I knew how people that were with him denied they ever knew him. I knew he stood and ruled even through death, hell, and being raised from the dead. I knew that I wasn’t going to die like Jesus did, but through the darkness I would rule in the midst of my enemies as I had done for all these years. I wasn’t surprise about those that betrayed me. I also knew that many that said they believed my gospel didn’t. Unbelief is why people left my ministry. They stopped believing the Gospel if they ever did believe it. What I said came to pass and I never expected otherwise.

Meeting “Big Red.” Sometime in February I began seeing a figure in my house that would appear slightly to my left in the distance that looked like a tall, thick black rope weaving among the clouds. I saw this figure two or three times and did not understand what it was. At this time I was continually being bombarded by a voice that said Lisa was not my wife and that I should not give her any money.

I was giving money to Lisa by putting a check in an envelope, putting a stamp on it and placing it in her mailbox on Walters Road and she would cash them. One day I knew it was right in the spirit to give her a check, but I didn’t have a stamp or an envelope. I had an appointment at the barbershop in McKinney and while I was there I asked my barber if the post office still sold stamped envelopes. He said he didn’t know but had one in his possession. A few weeks ago a lady had walked in and wanted to know if she could trade that envelope with a stamp on it for another envelope and stamp. My barber said, “You can have it. I don’t even know why she wanted to trade.” I looked at the stamp; it was a woman holding a child. I put a check in the envelope and put it in Lisa’s mailbox. After that the Lord said, “Don’t give her any more money.”

February or early March as I was in my house, God took me out into the realm of the spirit. I found myself face to face with a red spirit that appeared to be shaped like a serpent standing on it’s tail. It was four to six inches in diameter and more than six or seven feet tall. It was weaving back and forth. I stood with my face inches from him. I looked up and saw the head towering above my head, looking down at me. I followed his form down with my eyes and its tail was just between the toes of my shoes. I looked up and down at him two, three, or four times. He knew who I was. This was the spirit that had been speaking to me. I got the impression that he thought his presence would intimidate me. I spoke directly to him, “I don’t know if you are Jesus Christ. I don’t know if you are an angel from heaven. I don’t know if you are the devil himself. But Lisa is my wife and I don’t have to ask you if I can give her any money.” Immediately that thing left me and dove off and downward as if we were on a cloud. I never saw that spirit again.

Overcoming a Ruler. I confronted the spirit in Lisa on several occasions and drove it out of Plano. She and JR moved out of town on May 31st. I did not know where she went, nor did I know where she lived, or whom she was living with. But my spirit knew. On June 15th John 14: 21 was strong in my heart with faith;

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

I prayed, “This day you will manifest yourself to me!” I have had this kind of experience in prayer on more than one occasion.

I started driving while praying from the church down Jupiter Road to Renner Road, then west to Custer, north on Custer to Park and back to Water of Life Church. I did this for thirty to thirty five minutes praying fervently, then returned to the church and continued to pray. I began to experience severe abdominal pains. I knew I was beginning to overcome the Masonic Ruler of Dallas that had Lisa and others at Water of Life bound.

Lisa’s two grandfathers and father were members of the Hella Temple Lodge in Garland. There were several others in the ministry whose family had been members of the Masons. After this I was able to identify its influence on others. I have come to see it is one of the highest spirits in our land.

Some years previously I was out driving with Lisa and praying. I addressed the heavens and said, “I challenge the most high Masonic ruler!” I said it several times, knowing that I never broke through it or overcame it. What did happen at that moment was the compressor on my vehicle’s air conditioner and my alternator went out at the same time. That’s what spirits can do to you and your equipment. What I found out later was Lisa was living less than two miles from Renner Road at that time. I don’t know where she is at today but she is not very far away because God is not through with her.

This day was the beginning of overcoming that spirit. I overcame it to a degree, but not totally. I had to keep walking and praying. Each time that I would confront it some type of storm would hit Water of Life and the area around us; either an electrical storm, severe rain, ice, snow, or extreme heat. When I would just about get on top of it, that is when a storm would hit. In the years ahead, I finally overcame that Masonic ruler, it could no longer effect me.

“You’re Going to Die.” From time to time Lisa would make threats to me that certain people of Water of Life Ministries were going to die. I would tell her she was wrong. On April 21st she stood before me in her front yard, pointed her finger at me and said, “You are going to die and your ministry is coming down.” I replied, “Not so, Lisa,” but at that juncture I knew it was time to start fasting. I began fasting seven days a week eating only the evening meal. That lasted several years. I found out a few days later that Donnie Cauthorn had started fasting for me also. I thank God for someone that can hear the Spirit of God and obey.

On the 9th day of September, one year from the day I went to jail, I woke up and my head, neck, and shoulders were numb, no feeling. My spirit immediately took over and started praising God, my intellect was saying this is the only way out. After some 15 minutes maybe 20, most of the numbness was gone. Within an hour I was fine.

But just days after that, perhaps in early October, I had a serious attack of the devil. My head said you are dying but my heart said you are not. I didn’t have a written will and I still don’t. I always said the Lord would tell me when I was going to be with him. But I let fear rule me. I sat down at the desk in my office, took a yellow legal pad and I wrote the last will and testament of Doyle Davidson. I directed where all my assets would go, that Terry Mai would be chairman of the board and president of Water of Life Ministries. I signed my name Doyle Davidson and then I put a postscript; I pray for my wife Lisa. In 45 minutes I overcame that attack and tore the will up and threw it in the trash. When Kathie D came to be my wife she asked me why I didn’t have any paper in my office and I told her I didn’t want to be tempted to write another one!

On December 27, while sitting alone in El Fenix Restaurant, the Lord spoke to me these words, “JR lied to Lisa and she believed his lies.”

Confronting Baptists Spirits. I recorded a program confronting Baptists on March 28th that I absolutely did not want to air. I was embarrassed to even hear myself speak. God said, “Show it!” The central theme was a person that won’t receive correction is a bastard (Hebrews 12), and Baptists refuse correction. I aired it and the day it aired in April I began to overcome the Baptist spirit. Oh it was glorious! I had a telephone call from a man who said, “I am getting a petition to get you removed from this station.” I asked him, “What for?” He answered “For what you said about Baptists.” I said, “Sir, can I ask you a question? Have you ever known a Baptist that would receive correction?” He thought for a moment and then said, “No sir, and I will with draw my petition.” That was God that confronted that Baptist spirit out of my mouth. This was the beginning of overcoming religious spirits: a great victory. Not one word have I ever spoken on television has God corrected me. Not one word. He would correct me before I’d say something, but never after. Consider what I am saying to you. God never corrected me.

Federal Court. In September I had a friend that was scheduled for a hearing in Federal Court in Dallas for a deportation hearing. He attended Water of Life Ministries occasionally, but I talked to him once or twice a week at his business. I was convinced he had really accepted Jesus into his heart. Terry Mai and I were called as character witnesses. The federal prosecutor was a woman. She swore me in and started asking me questions about this person lying. I replied to her questions, “I cannot answer that, I have no knowledge of that, I wasn’t there.” She admonished me that I was under oath and I acknowledged that I knew that. She kept asking me those kinds of questions and then she said judge, “This man is not responsive.” The judge replied to her, “I am going to continue to let you ask these kinds of questions but you are not going to get anywhere with this witness.” Finally she gave up. The judge turned to me and said, “You know I have just read the book “The Apostle” and you remind of this apostle,” and went on and talked about the book. My thought was, if you want to know about an apostle, read the bible. This prosecutor wanted me to say this man lied, and I didn’t know because I wasn’t there to witness it. The judge finally said, “Reverend, what does Jesus say about liars?” And like a shot out of my mouth, “Jesus said all liars will go to the pit.” He replied, “You can step down, Reverend.”

The Indonesia Tsunami. A major earthquake occurred on December 26th of 2004 just west off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. That earthquake caused the single worst tsunami recorded in history, with a death toll estimated at 170,000 people in Indonesia alone. Mel Tari’s ministry got in touch with our ministry, because he grew up in that country. Mel left for Sumatra on January 8th and returned on the 12th with video documenting the destruction. We began taking contributions for Indonesia on our television broadcast and received $160,117 in donations. We turned the money over to Mel Tari’s ministry and he in turn sent it for distribution in Indonesia.

Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Southeast Louisiana on August 29 causing major damage and the loss of 1,833 deaths. Because of the flooding many homes were washed away or destroyed. Many people from Louisiana and other areas were evacuated, many to this area in Texas. Water of Life Ministries contributed to Willowcreek Fellowship Church in their efforts to house the evacuees.

The Lord Paid off My House. December the 23 I paid my house and property off in full. God is faithful to His word and will perform it to the obedient. I had to rejoice it happened to me on Lisa’s birthday and she wasn’t able to live in it.

Gospel Crusades. We continued to hold weekly Sunday meetings in Joplin, South Bend, Tulsa, and Houston. We conducted one hundred fourteen meetings this year lead by myself along with other apostles and prophets. Thirty-four meetings were held in Joplin, twenty-one in South Bend, twenty-seven in Houston, and thirty-two in Tulsa.

Terry Mai began conducting meetings in The Colony in January. The last meeting was in November.

Basil Clark was no longer on staff in February, Ralph Edge was no longer on staff as of March.

Jack Small came to me and asked to go to speak at the Water of Life Churches. He said that he would go at his own expense. South Bend was the longest trip that he drove, but was unable to pay the expenses of any. My ministry reimbursed him on all the trips.

A Work of Righteousness - 2004

The Power of Darkness

When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness. Luke 22:53

The Power of Darkness. The very first television broadcast that aired this year, which was on January 4th; I recorded the last week in 2003. As I was speaking the Spirit of the Lord spoke through me, “The power of darkness is hitting your ministry as it did the Lord’s."

During that broadcast I mentioned two people who had known me all their lives, one of them being my daughter, Kathy, the other my nephew, Ralph Edge, and I stated that I had confidence that these two people were for me and would stand up for me. “But,” I said, “If the power of darkness hit them with enough strength, they would deny they knew me…when this darkness hits, no flesh can rule…Peter proved that, as did James, John and the rest… I believe that there is a great darkness about to hit this ministry…you don’t need to think that you will escape what the apostles didn’t escape…they couldn’t stand at that darkness…I won’t be surprised what happens to me, what kind of accusations come against me and I won’t be surprised at whose mouth they come out of…I’ll be fine, …I will be here, ruling. Where will you be?”

Just as I prophesied, the power of darkness hit Water of Life Ministries. There was one day in the prayer room in the presence of the staff I sat down and started talking to Lisa and was able to take her out of that spirit that had her in rebellion. Everyone there saw it and acknowledged how she changed, but soon after that she yielded back to that spirit again. Lisa began blessing me out loud whenever I was speaking on camera. Satan had her tongue. On April 25th I spoke on the broadcast about Nebuchadnezzar and how God dealt with his pride, drove him into insanity for seven years until he realized “the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men” (Daniel 4). I called Lisa that afternoon and asked her, “Did God say anything to you in the message this morning?” She replied, “No, that message was for you. You are the one that’s in pride.” That day Lisa left the ministry.

Moving to Plano. On June 30th I gave away my 2,400 sq.ft. house, the acre and a quarter property, and all the furniture in it and moved into Chase Oaks Apartments, a two bedroom furnished dwelling in Plano.

While I living there I flew to Pittsburgh on a private corporate jet that I paid for at my own expense, picked up my oldest sister and brought her back to Plano. She stayed with me for a week.

In August there was a heavy rainstorm that moved through from the west. I was in my apartment at Chase Oaks. I walked over and opened the curtain that covered the patio door and there I saw a dove on the steel rail looking straight at me. He wouldn’t move so I opened the patio door, and he still didn’t move. I looked down to my left next to the brick, and there sat a baby dove. In a few minutes the baby dove moved out toward the parent sitting on the rail. It was then I noticed in a tree right next to my patio was another dove. I realized it was the mother and father of baby dove. I called Lisa and told her what was on my patio. Her response was, “Now maybe you will believe that John D will be born.”

She and I had not been communicating very well. When the prayer group went to Santa Fe, New Mexico in June to pray, she refused to go. So after the dove I asked her if she would like to take a trip to Santa Fe so she could complete all the trips that the women went on to pray. She accepted. The next day we chartered a plane, flew to New Mexico and prayed as we had done on all the other trips. On our way there we discussed Isaiah 8: 1-4:

Moreover the LORD said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man's pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz. And I took unto me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah. And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son. Then said the LORD to me, Call his name Mahershalalhashbaz. For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria.

God was still convincing me that a son would come forth out of my loins. Lisa and I talked of this, agreed it was God, that he would bring it to pass and that she would bare me the son.

We arrived back in Plano and I thought everything was fine, but it lasted only a few hours. She returned to her state of rebellion against God. At this point Lisa was listening to lies and yielding to the devil. She was deceived as in Revelations 12:9:

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Not only was she listening to the devil directly but she had people around her that were also lying to her and she believed their lies. God told me she believed their lies. JR said to me that I had a lying spirit in my mouth. He went on to say he didn’t know if God put it there or the devil but I had deceived the body of Christ and I needed to repent.

The Challenge. Following the appearance of the doves on my patio and the New Mexico trip, Lisa became much more hostile, really even combative with a desire to hurt me. As she and I were talking one afternoon, she proclaimed, “You met your match! No one has ever challenged you, no one has ever said no to you!” I said to her, “Are you challenging me? “Yes!” was her answer. I replied, “OK.” I thought I needed a week to consider this, I knew this was a spiritual war. After praying for a week God said to go talk to her. I got in my car and headed to her house. I was driving west down Legacy Road and as I reached Wesson Drive she pulled out in front of me. I knew God had set it up. I followed her past Custer; she turned south, pulled over and parked. I drove up behind her, got out of my car and walked up to her automobile. “We need to talk,” I said, as I went around to the right side of her car, opened the door and sat down on the passenger seat. Her dog was between us but I said, “Don’t be bothered by the dog.” I went on and spoke, “I have decided to accept your challenge.” I frankly knew that I was talking to a devil, not just a demon, but perhaps a ruler of the darkness of this world, but I wasn’t sure. Ten days later I was arrested at her direction.

The Arrest. On September 9th at the direction of God I went to Lisa’s house. She wouldn’t answer the doorbell, but several minutes later JR drove up and I walked into the house with him and then climbed the stairs. Lisa was sitting at her computer. The power of God was strong in me and the Spirit of God in me was angry toward her rebellion. As I walked over toward her, in her rebellious state she stood up. I laid hands on her and a demon started screaming out of her. JR came up the stairs, saw what God was doing, and grabbed me around my waist. I was not about to fight with him. Lisa ran from me, grabbed the phone and dialed 911. I said to JR, “I can knock the hell out of you, but it is not in me.”

The police arrived, came in and frankly what they saw was an attractive woman all upset. They questioned her, then questioned me and JR. My answers were direct, without hesitation, and I told the complete truth. The officers then asked me to come outside. Without any explanation or purpose they shined a light in my eyes. There were no other instructions or tests. In a minute or so he said, “I am arresting you for public intoxication.”

I knew I wasn’t intoxicated, and I didn’t come to that conclusion on my own, but by reading the sobriety section of the police report. You see the one thing that is obvious to me is the police report states I was incoherent, yet further down in the report I made 8 or 10 coherent statements to the officers. An incoherent person cannot make coherent statements. There were many other discrepancies in the report also.

I was handcuffed and taken to the police station.

When I first arrived at the jail I told them, “I do not hold any of you people responsible for putting me here.” But I did not know that the police report would be full of lies. God holds them responsible this very day.

The officers directed me into a cell with about seven other men. They gave me a mattress and said I could lie down. I replied I would not be lying down, I didn’t need to. I then started praying. A person on a cot not far from me had his head covered up with a blanket. He pulled the cover off of his head and declared, “Hey man, I’m trying to sleep!” I responded right back, “Hey man, I’m a minister of the Gospel and this is what I do!” He replied, “Yes, sir!” covered his head back up and left me alone.

I began talking to the rest of the men in the cell with me and asked them what they were doing in there, their charges and the cost to get them out. At some point an officer came and took me to the booking desk. There was a man standing there beside me from Ohio also being booked. He cried, “Oh this is terrible and so sad!” I replied, “This is not terrible! Gird up your loins and act like a man!” I spoke life into that man.

The booking officer asked me if I drank wine. I said, “Yes.” He then asked me, “Do you like it?” I asked him back, “Do you drink wine?” He replied, “Yes.” I then asked him, “Do you like it?” When he said, “Yes.” I replied, “So do I”. After another exchange or so, that booking officer witnessing my conduct, said to me, “You can appeal this.” I said “No, I will not appeal this; God will take care of me.” My actions here and my actions at the jail, are these the actions of a man intoxicated? In a little while the bondsman came, paid my fine, and I went home.

I never stopped for one minute being obedient to my Father. The next morning I flew to Tallahassee, Florida at the commandment of the Lord. He directed me to go to Tallahassee and help Governor Bush by praying. I arrived, rented a car and drove through the city in intercessory prayer for 3 ½ hours alone.

About six weeks after the arrest Lisa and JR asked to speak to the apostles at Water of Life Ministries. There were a number that came, including myself. They wanted to tell them their story. They stood before the apostles and gave an account that put JR in two separate locations at one time that were about fifteen feet apart. God just confounded them and they lied. What was interesting was the apostles that were there never caught the lie until the next day, that spirit had them so bound.

The Purchase of My House. On October 25th I sent a fax to the apartment management giving them thirty days notice that I would vacate my apartment on the 24th of November. It wasn’t until then I began to look for a house. I knew what area I was to live in. I found the house God had for me and signed the contract on November 18th.

Dena Schlosser. Just three days later on Sunday the 21st John and Dena Schlosser came up to the front of the sanctuary to speak to me. I had not seen Dena in several months, she may have been here but I don’t recall seeing her. John began telling me that Dena wanted to go to the Plano police and tell them they were wrong for arresting me. I turned to my right and spoke directly to her, “Look, I don’t need your help. God is my defense.” The next morning, on the 22nd, I received the news that Dena had severed the arms of her baby and the child had died.

I considered backing out on the contract for the house. I called the apartment management office to see if I could cancel the thirty-day notice, but it was Thanksgiving and they were closed for the holiday. The Lord told me to go on. It was obvious the devil did not want me to have this house. I left the apartment and moved into a Holiday Inn until I closed. I had signed the contract to close on the 8th of December for an 80% loan on the purchase price of $210,000. I wanted to put down 20% at the closing, which with the closing costs would be about $49,000. I only had a few thousand in the bank. I had the loan officer nervous and I had the bank nervous because I told them I would have the money at the closing and it wasn’t there yet. I wasn’t nervous. I had perfect credit and I had given away my previous house and furniture. I stood up to God and said, this is the way I am doing this! By December 7th, the day before the closing all the money was there and verified. On the 8th we closed on the house. I had it arranged for a mattress, box springs and bed coverings to be delivered that afternoon and on the night of the 8th, I slept in my house. With all the accusations that I had sinned, that I was wicked, God supplied the money for me to put down on the house.

The next day Neil Dodge wanted to make a contribution to my new home and brought fifteen very nice folding chairs. I started a bible study in my home. I am not sure there are any left that came to those bible studies.

Praying for the United States. We continued to travel to the forty-eight contiguous states. We traveled to the remaining twenty-two states this year. My trip to Tallahassee in September was the finish. The Lord supplied all that was necessary to make these trips along with the crusades.

Alabama                     Minnesota                     Idaho
Utah                            North Dakota                Nevada
Florida                        South Dakota                Arizona
Kentucky                    Nebraska                      New Mexico
West Virginia             Wyoming                      Pennsylvania
Illinois                        Washington                  California
Michigan                    Oregon                         South Carolina

Gospel Crusades. Even while traveling to the forty-eight states, we continued conducting the Gospel Crusades with sixty-two meetings this year lead by myself along with other apostles and prophets. We started to hold weekly Sunday meetings in Joplin and Tulsa in June and added Houston in October. There were twenty-seven meetings in Missouri, fourteen in Tulsa, five in South Bend, twelve in Houston, and four in Anaheim.

Basil Clark and Sharion Brockett joined our staff in May.

History of My Ministry

1970: After being called out from a very successful veterinary practice on January 1, I was led into the wilderness by the Spirit of God to where when finished, I could walk in the power of God. God reestablished my previous practice in May of 1977.

1979: In March, God spoke these words to me "(Ezekiel 3:5-7) for thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to (America); Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have hearkened unto thee. But (America) will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all of (America) are impudent and hardhearted.

1980: January 1, I entered into public ministry of the Gospel while continuing the practice of veterinary medicine until December 1982 when I stopped practicing medicine altogether.

1981: The ministry moved into the Plano facility that we currently now occupy in January. In October, I began our radio ministry by going on 1600 AM here in Plano ministering five days a week. Within just six months I was on twenty stations all over the U.S..

1983: With the inception of Water of Life Christian Training School we began making tapes available. In the ensuing years we gave away several million dollars worth of tapes and albums to the U.S., Africa and many other nations free of charge. An excess of 200,000 tapes and albums went to Africa alone.

1984: In April I began teaching on live television Saturday evenings on Channel 49, Dallas/Fort Worth.

1985: On January 1, Patty, Terry, Kathy and I traveled to Zimbabwe and spent fifteen days ministering the Gospel. Water of Life Ministries donated over $500,000 to Africa, which converted to $6,500,000 Zimbabwe dollars.

1986: In June I went from a live television broadcast at 8:00 PM on Saturdays to taping a recorded program for Sunday mornings at 8:00AM. During the month of August God told me to begin giving one half of the ministry's money away. When I shared this with Terry Mai he showed me Luke 19:8; And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. . I laughed and told him "This is easy for you to say Terry!" Terry was an affable person, he responded as he often did, with a big smile, a little laugh and then walked out of the office. That meant that our television program which had just gone from $500 to $2000 a program now doubled to $4000 so as to give half away. We finished that year "in the black". The ministry was completely out of debt and has remained that way since.

1987: We started the Mission in McKinney in the spring of this year. For the next ten years we purchased more than $750,000 from local food chains and gave it away.

1990: Wally Edge and Randy Brooks transcribed several of my tapes into five books: Jesus Did the Father's Will, He Rose Again, God's Plan of Reconciliation, Jesus On the Cross, and The Gospel is Always a Blessing. 50,000 books were published. They were offered free of charge. This set of five books was mailed to 37 major ministries in the United States and 30 local ministries in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. 3,500 books were sent to Africa and given away.

1992: God spoke these words to me in January, "The things I have promised you I will bring to pass in this season." Shortly after, on February 2, my television ministry expanded nationwide. We began broadcasting on 25 television stations, coast to coast. We also began broadcasting on all of LeSea's short-wave radio stations. These radio broadcasts covered a large majority of the world's population. We continued with LaSea until early in 2000 when I was removed from their TV and short-wave stations.

1993: We began driving and flying commercial to the different parts of the country holding meetings in hotels. God directed us to travel to Joplin, Tulsa, Houston, South Bend, Anaheim, and Indianapolis. Most of those locations have developed into Water of Life Churches.

1994: In November twelve apostles went on radio KPPC 770, Dallas and remained until 1997. They each had go their own radio slot airing on Saturdays and Sundays. The apostles were Terry Mai, Ralph Edge, "Baptist Bob" Buckner, Basil Clark, Jack "the Frenchman" Turquette, John Ferguson, Steve Brown, Donnie Cauthorn, Wally Edge, Randy Brooks, JR Staton, and Dwyane Jackson.

1996: June was the last time we passed the plate in our services. We placed a box at the rear of the sanctuary for people to give their offerings. Just one month later, God directed me to beginning flying charter out of Collin County Regional Airport to the areas we were traveling to. Since that time we have flown over 400 charter flights all across this country. God never failed to supply.

2000:  I began ministering on Fox 23 in Tulsa, 9:00 -10:00 AM five days a week in May. We began producing five one hour and five half-hour programs for the individual stations. I was on Fox, CBS, an ABC affiliate, Warner Brothers and others. We moved to the secular stations because some of the stations, like Pax Communication were removing us for our content. The television bill was over 2 million dollars a year, which was in excess of $40,000 a week. A check accompanied every tape.

2001: Beginning in July the twelve apostles appeared on their own 30 minute television programs on Channel 55, Dallas/Fort worth. Along with this, Kathy Mai was a regular on Terry Mai's program and hosted her own thirty minute broadcast. Debbie Edge appeared as a regular on Ralph Edge's show and also hosted her own thirty minute broadcast. Later, Lisa appeared as a regular on my program and also hosted her own thirty minute program. In addition, Terry and Kathy Mai regularly appeared on my program as worship leaders. I believed God and this ministry paid for every radio and television program.

2002: The apostles teamed up and went to various Dallas/Fort Worth locations holding meetings in hotels.

2003: During the month of July the Lord directed me to fly to the mainland states in America and pray. Myself, and the ones that traveled with me completed praying for all 48 states in the month of June 2004. God supplied over $400,000 to fly private charter to all the states.

2007: We began broadcasting all of our services live on the Internet in January.

During all these years I never told anyone my needs for money, God always supplied. I personally have given over $650,000 in cash and property, myself paying the taxes.

Thirty years I have been a faithful servant. But what God spoke to me in 1979 has surely come to pass, America will not hear. There are but a few with me, worshipping and praising God seven days a week for ten hours, worldwide. God have mercy on America.

Making of A Prophet - Thanksgiving Day Miracles

Testimonies of Doyle Davidson
Transcribed and edited from Sunday, October 20, 2013 (1st Hour) Live Stream Broadcast

I was invited to a Thanksgiving dinner in 1975, when I was in Argyle. The miracles and healings we’re talking about now took place when I was in the wilderness. You can look in scripture and find that Moses did miracles in the wilderness just to feed people and not only that, but to give them water. Moses spoke to the rock, (I always had compassion on Moses, if you’ve been in my position you would give thanks for Moses because he had a whole bunch of people. I do too, they are all over the world, thank God they are not all in front of me.)

I was invited to this home for Thanksgiving and I knew almost all the people there. I was drinking tea and I finished my glass of tea and wanted another. There was a gentleman that was talking about a new sport coat (I think) he had made and one sleeve was 1-1/4 inches different in length than the other, because of his arm length; it wasn’t the tailor. I sat there and listened to that testimony and I thought, “God would make these arms equal, if this man would believe.” I got up and started across the room and the Spirit of God stopped me and I turned around and said, “God will make your arms equal if you can believe.” “I believe,” he said. “Put your arms out,” I said. He put them out and God grew that one arm out an inch and a quarter and there they were—equal. This man was a well-educated man; he had a PhD. Isn’t that nice? You know God would do that for a PhD, a Harvard PhD? That’s the love of God. No, I didn’t have anything to do with it, I just asked God to make the arms equal.

I walked on into the kitchen to get my tea glass refilled and there sat a lady with her left arm up on a pillow and her hand looked like she had elephantiasis; it looked like the foot of an elephant, swollen, scaly, dead, no life in it, none whatsoever. I can’t recall but I’m sure she didn’t have on a long-sleeve dress, but what I could see of her arm it looked dead. I was a professional veterinarian and I knew something about dead tissues and this woman had been attacked by the devil and had malignant melanoma. She had been to a cancer hospital and they had taken her arm loose and freed it from the blood supply and they put chemotherapy in her circulatory system in her arm. (This is according to her account, any mistakes I have made, she can write it and correct me, I would welcome that.) I looked at that and I thought, “My God.” The Lord was saying, “Pray for her.” And I was saying, “I don’t think so.” Now this is all under the title, Making of a Prophet. You see God will prepare you before He sends you out into the wilds. I’m talking about the multitudes, because when you get into the multitudes you are going to encounter spirits that you didn’t know existed and after you get there you are going to wish they were not there. They are mean, they’re wicked. The devil’s mean, he’s wicked, he comes to kill, steal and destroy.

After five or ten minutes, probably more like ten, I thought, “I’m going to ask this person,” (Now this was God.) I was a pretty bold person, but not praying for people. If the horse was sick, I wasn’t afraid to do something with it, I had a license and I had a lot of success. Praying for people, I wasn’t sure that was something I would like to do. I finally said, “Would you like for me to pray for you?” She said, “Yes.” She was so depressed, in despair, looked hopeless and God, when He directs you to do something, remember you don’t have to have great faith, in size—size of a grain of a mustard seed—right? Yes. So, I don’t even think I laid hands on her, I don’t have to lay hands on people, I just speak the word and God heals. I prayed for her and that was it and I went back, finished my tea, had my Thanksgiving meal, went home and the next day I had a phone call and they said, “Her depression has lifted,” and I said, “She’s healed!” (How do you know?) The devil is the one that depresses or oppresses you and sickness is of the devil and he puts heavy burdens on you and weight through oppression and depression and when I heard that, I knew that she was well. Somewhere within three months she had regained (I believe) 95% of the use of that arm and hand and at one time they were not even sure they could save her life, and they didn’t—God did, because He wanted me to tell this testimony. Amen. But thank God, I believe she is alive today and well and I give God the glory!

A Work of Righteousness - 2003

Praying for all in Authority

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; I Timothy 2:1-3

The Sword is in the Land. Seated on the platform in late January, Lisa and I were ministering on worldwide television and radio. As I was speaking, I made a quick motion with my hand as if I was cutting the air from left to right, and said, “The sword is in the land!” It was only a few days later, on February 1st, the Space Shuttle Columbia began breaking apart as it re-entered the atmosphere just west of Dallas/Fort Worth. All of the crew perished. Three days after my wife Patti was thrown to the floor while I was speaking and fractured her hip. Two days later she was in heaven. Later that month, on the 23rd I sent JR and another person to speak in Joplin. While they were in the air a snowstorm suddenly materialized. They couldn’t land and had to return to McKinney. I spoke directly to JR, “You are done traveling.” I did anger a spirit that day!

Patti’s Death. I battled with my faith the false anointing and its plagues in Patti for years. This spirit was mean, hateful, accusing, and wanted to destroy me with lies. Sometime in 2001 I had overcome that spirit and Patti became a very humble, cordial, loving person. One evening as I was watching the news, she walked by my chair, gave me a hug and said “Doyle, I thank God for your believing and your prayers or we would have all gone to hell.” I knew that I’d overcome that spirit.

I was making a television broadcast on February 4th, confronting and fighting against a spirit while I was speaking. While doing this, that spirit threw my wife Patti down on the floor in our home. She crawled to the telephone and called me. I have had considerable experience with fractures, both with man and animal. I immediately went home, picked her up, put her on the bed and called for an ambulance. When they got there they tried to put her on a board, and very frankly they were hurting her worse than you could imagine. I walked over in front of them, picked her up and put her on the board myself. The pain lasted only a few seconds. They took her on to the hospital. X-rays found the neck of her femur was fractured. The next thirty-six hours were touch and go. A blood clot had gonefrom the fracture to her lung, then to her heart. Kathy Mai and I were standing in her room with her. Patti opened her eyes, waved at us with her left hand “goodbye” two times and went to heaven. Kathy Mai said, “Did you see that hand?” I said, “Yes, I did.”

After Patti’s death I found in her makeup drawer written on a yellow notepad these scriptures:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on
the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48)

Lord was I excited! I knew with my faith I had sanctified Patti and she was ready
to meet the Lord Jesus.

Praying for Our Country. God began leading me on a path that would have me visit and pray for all 48 contiguous states. The Lord spoke to me by His Spirit in October and told me to go to Dublin, Virginia. I had never been there and never even knew the place existed. My thought was God was directing me to go there to do a crusade. I did not know anyone there, but I was obedient to the Spirit. I made reservations at the Holiday Inn and announced the scheduled meeting on television and the Internet. Only one person came to that meeting besides my traveling staff and I believe they drove 900 miles. At the time the meeting was to start I asked that person if they prayed in tongues. They answered in the affirmative, so we all began to pray. After about 45 minutes the Spirit of God started talking to me about the state of Virginia. He revealed to me that politics, finances and education, which included religious education, of the United States had its origin in the state of Virginia by a spirit that came from Great Britain. I left that meeting having had these revelations about our country and they have been made clearer to me in the last few years. I began to see that God wanted me to visit and pray for the Thirteen Colonies after that meeting. Later we went on to pray for all of the states on the mainland. I also found my family, the Davidson’s came in to the United States through Virginia.

By the end of this year we had visited and prayed in twenty-six states:
Texas                 Kansas                     Connecticut
Missouri             Maine                       Delaware
Louisiana           Ohio                         Philadelphia
Indiana               Maryland                 New Hampshire
Colorado            Washington DC       Vermont
Tennessee         Rhode Island           Arkansas
Wisconsin          Massachusetts        Georgia
Virginia              New Jersey              South Carolina
North Carolina   New York

The Death of Kenneth Hagin and Derek Prince. In the month of September both Kenneth Hagin and Derek Prince died within five days of each other. Kenneth Hagin died on the 19th and Derek Prince on the 24th. Both men had rejected my ministry with letters in 1990.

Gospel Crusades. We continued conducting the weekly Gospel Crusades with fifty-five meetings this year lead by myself along with other apostles and prophets. There were 21 meetings in Missouri, 32 in Tulsa, and 2 in South Bend.

Television Ministry. We continued to expand our television ministry by adding WHME South Bend, Indiana in February, Far East TV (by Satellite) in June, and WHMB Indianapolis, Indiana in December. Water of Life Ministries continued the distribution of the Book of Romans teaching tapes free of charge.

Accepted in the Beloved

Transcribed and edited from:
Friday 11:00 AM, December 25, 2015 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 and sent by God to your house to declare unto you the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank God.

I want to say now, we are doing this live, Christmas Day, from the headquarters in Plano Texas, I want to welcome all of you to this live broadcast.

Now, the gospel is, how that Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the scripture and 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 brokenhearted, preach deliverance to the captive, recovery of sight to the blind, set at liberty those them 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 and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation, for 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 is faith.

I want to welcome everyone to this broadcast on Livestream and Roku, thank God, welcome this Christmas day live from Plano Texas.

I want to open this broadcast with a song done by my co-host, Paul Peters and he’s going to sing about what we talk about on these programs that we do, six nine hours per week, it will always be about Jesus and the gospel.

Paul Peters:
“Jesus Paid It All”

June 17, 1974 at the Tomb of the Garden in Jerusalem, God anointed me to preach the gospel to the world; I’ve been doing that ever since. I’m an apostle and prophet sent to the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I don’t take vacations, I don’t have time. I don’t take days off, I don’t have time. We’re living in the last days; I have strength, the energy, desire, ambition and will, to do what God has commanded me to do.

So on this Christmas day, I know many of you are sitting somewhere at home, in a car somewhere, in a building; you have livestream, Roku, some listening device that you hear or see what we’re doing.

I want to speak to those that do not have anybody but themselves. I want to know if you have Jesus; I want to know if you know Jesus. I want to encourage you about Jesus living in these hours. Jesus is alive and well—get that straight—working with this ministry on planet earth. It’s a great blessing to have this.

We’ve been speaking since 2013 about Daniel 11:20- 28; that being the United States of America, presently; moving toward the day of the anti-christ, setting in the temple in Jerusalem, deceiving people and Jesus goes in and destroys him, but all of that is approaching. Be sure of that, we’re living in the last days, of the last days. It’s a great blessing to be able to preach the gospel which is the power of God, which is the gospel. Paul is going to read matthew 24:21, what Jesus said is going to take place during this period of time.

Matthew 24:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

My friends, Jesus prophesied this more than 2000 years ago it’s here, it’s here now, believe me, its present. The world cannot figure out what’s happening, they think this can be turned around. This will never be turned around. The end is approaching. The anti-christ is on his rise; I’m talking about the chief, the one that sets in the temple in Jerusalem. There are many anti-christ in the world, many anti-christ, many false prophets in the world. We’re not false on this program; we’re servants of the most high God, servants of Jesus Christ.

You say, “They all say that.”

Check it out, follow the bible and see if you believe that they’re telling you the truth. If you can read you will find out they are not telling you the truth at all. Because there are people this day the church will be raptured—pre-trib, mid-trib, no. The Church won’t be raptured. The Church will be caught up in the clouds with Jesus, and the dead that are in the graves will rise first, they’re the ones that will rise first, then those of us that are alive, living in the gospel without spot, wrinkle or blemish will be caught up in the clouds and meet Jesus.

I want Paul Peters to read from Ephesians 1:1-14 but before he does I want to tell you I once was a very successful veterinarian, equine practitioner primarily, in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. In 1970 I obeyed God and walked away from it to do what I’m doing today. I’m taught of the Lord. I’ve not been to seminary, bible school, nor have I sat at the feet of any man or woman to teach me, but the Father, Jesus, his Son have taught me, through the Holy Ghost. Thank God. It’s a great blessing to have God take you out of your profession and tell you this is what you’re going to do: “Obey me.” And I appreciate God doing that for me.

I’m taught as I said of God as the law says, “all shall be taught of God.”

So Paul Peters is going to read, Ephesians1:1-14 and we’re going to talk about some of these things and some other things, but we’re interested in you that are heading into the days like no other man has lived; tribulations greater than they’ve ever been. My friend it says, “Time is shortened for the elects sake, or nobody would make it.” But fear not, the Lord will uphold you if you’ll believe his gospel, take up your cross daily and follow him, you’ll be fine.

Ephesians 1:

1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Whoa, do you see that? Predestinated to be conformed to the image of Jesus; Romans 8 will tell you this and because of that you are predestinated to be brought into this and be accejpted by Jesus, in Jesus. I happen to be one of those and I didn’t understand this in 1970, not at all. I did not understand Romans 8: that there are those predestinated to be conformed to the image of Jesus, thank God. You are one of them, you wouldn’t be listening to me or watching me if you were not one of them. Not only that, you have faith in your heart to be born again to receive Jesus, to be one in the Spirit with Jesus, thank God, so don’t turn this thing off, believe what you are hearing; that you are accepted, predestinated to be accepted in Jesus. You got that?

Through all the last forty-six years of persecution and affliction, and I’ve received much of both, I saw early that I’d been accepted in Christ and that has brought me much comfort to know that I’m accepted by Jesus, you can’t get rid of me. No, you cannot get me out of the will of God. You can’t take me away from Jesus.

Now, Jeremiah 5:24 talks about the appointed weeks of the harvest during the time of the former and latter rain. My friends, Psalm 102 talks about when God builds up Zion, he will not despise your prayer, nor will he live you destitute, he’ll answer your prayer. You can find that in Psalm 102. It’s appointed. God is building up Zion, now, the Body of Christ and Israel. Israel is Zion. God is working in Israel and all over the world, putting together, preparing to get the Body of Christ to be brought into one, one Church, the Body of Christ. Thank God, so if Paul if you will read on to verse 14.

7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Amen. I believe verse 13 says after you believe the gospel of our salvation, that’s how you get saved: believe the gospel, the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; that’s how you’re born again, that’s how you receive Jesus, is by believing the gospel, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus; that is your salvation.

Now you can receive it also, by speaking the name of Jesus, which we will do, but not at the moment, we will get to that later. After you believe the gospel, you are born again, subsequent to that comes the second experience and it’s called the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Here it says that it’s the earnest of our inheritance. I couldn’t believe that was in the bible but it is. Earnest, it’s a down payment. The Holy Ghost is a down payment on your inheritance; you need the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

I never heard of the Charismatic movement. I was raised in john Wesley Methodist Holiness religion and I’m going to be bringing out a teaching about holiness before too long. There are many so-called holiness groups in the world. Most of them are “holier-than-thou.” They don’t know what holiness is, they have no clue. I happen to have been raised in that group of people and I saw the “holier than thou”, but I saw some that were holy and that holiness, you’re going to find out is an inward work of the heart, of the gospel, of the blood of Jesus, of the Holy Ghost, of faith, thank God. You will see it, we’ll be coming out [with it]. It has nothing to do with what your clothes look like, nothing. Oh true, God will lead you to wear modest apparel, but we’ve already taught that. But let me tell you something friends, don’t get shocked. God will save a nudist colony. Did you get that? He’ll also show you how to dress, thank God. Glory.

The Holy Ghost, the earnest of our inheritance, and you’ve heard, and if you haven’t you’re hearing now, on the day of Pentecost, [with the baptism of the] Holy Ghost, they all spoke in other tongues, yes I know the gospel was preached. In Acts 10 the Gentiles received the Holy Ghost, read it, by believing the gospel. It says they that heard the word, the word, Peter preached the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, and they spoke in tongues, necessary. And then water baptism by immersion. We don’t have time to teach this right now, but these experiences I knew, except the baptism in the Holy Ghost, before I got in the Charismatic movement but God taught them to me as when I was a practicing veterinarian; those verses about being born again, saved, the gospel, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the down payment or the earnest of our inheritance thank God, and then the baptism in the Holy Ghost, speaking in other tongues.

But I’d received all three, I spoke in tongues, but I was struggling to believe. Pat my wife (who went to heaven in 2003 at age seventy), my daughter Kathy Mai, who is still with me, (I talked to her this morning, thank God, what a blessing), the three of us attended a meeting at Christ for the Nations, Lester Sumrall was speaking. I called Lester Sumrall a brother. I don’t call very many brothers.


Well, I’m a doer of the word, not a hearer only.

Paul is going to read the words of Jesus in Matthew 12:46-50, [describing who is a mother, brother, sister.]

Matthew 12:

46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

I’ve believed that for many years, since early 1970s and I practiced that. I’ve insulted more than one preacher because I didn’t call him brother, but I could tell he wasn’t doing the will of God so I would just call him by his first name, didn’t bother me. People call me brother, almost makes me want to regurgitate. Call me brother and you’re following the devil? No thank you. I won’t respond to your lie.

But I went to Christ for the Nations and I’m not sure when it was, maybe 1973, or 1974, or might have been 1975, but Lester Sumrall was speaking and I hadn’t met him at that time. ( I met him later and he and I became good friends, quickly, we were the same spirit.) And he got up and he said, “There are three people here with unbelief. Unbelief is unreasonable, it’s ridiculous.” Whatever else he said, I don’t remember, but he said, “I’m praying for you,” and the power of God hit my heart and delivered me from unbelief.

Now my friends, I’m going to pray for people that have unbelief in their heart and I expect the power of God to deliver many of unbelief.

“Father in Jesus name I pray the anointing of the Holy Ghost fall on the hearts of your people and destroy, destroy the yoke, break the yoke of unbelief in their hearts, set them free and let them go, in Jesus name, amen.”

Thank God, your heart will be different from now on, if you’re believing anything.

My friends believe this gospel. I know there are people watching me, hearing me on Livestream, Roku, I know that and you don’t know what to do. You’ve been told to receive Jesus. I’m telling you, confess his name with the faith that God has put in you, that’s what I’m telling you. That is exactly what I’m speaking to you, confess the name Jesus (not just yet) after me, but we’re not ready yet. We want to show you some things. We want to minister some songs to you, some songs of faith by the Holy Ghost. By the way, Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, Spirit of God, all the same, all the same. No the Holy Ghost does not have more power than the Holy Spirit or the Spirit of God. I heard a man say that once and I thought, “What’s wrong with you? They are all the same one.” See, that’s a religious lie, that’s what that is.

My friends you are alone, and you feel lonely. You don’t have to stay that way. You are going to have to listen with your ears to these two songs and then I’m going to pray with you, but first you are going to hear one of my favorite songs from my youth, but it was ministered with a sad heart. But there is a lady here that is a friend of mine and on my staff, been in this ministry 30 years, that’s been delivered from her sad heart doing the “Old Rugged Cross.”

Terre Brown:
“The Old Rugged Cross”

Coming up, a recorded song by Terre and the Browns, one that you’re going to enjoy. It’s a great blessing to have this video ministered on this program, which any time God tells me, I can get it.

Terre and the Browns:
“Worthy the Lamb”

Kathie Davidson has a word that she’s going to deliver.

Interpretation of Tongue - Kathie Davidson
(Tongue given by Kathie Davidson)

The Lord would say to you, as you sit there in your defeat, call upon my name, bow your knee to me, say my name Jesus, and I will nail your defeat to the tree and I will bring you out of your trouble and you will glorify me to the world. Amen.

Thank God, hallelujah. By the way, if you don’t know, she [Kathie Davidson] preaches the gospel on our Sunday morning television programs. You won’t hear one better. Well you probably won’t even hear the gospel but you will from her, through her.

The name Jesus no other name, none, on earth, under heaven, none but Jesus; under heaven, none but Jesus Christ of Nazareth, [by which] must one be saved. My friends, this is your day, God has called you to this hour, this moment, you’re viewing this, you’re listening to this because God called you to be there, be here, wherever you’re at, to receive Jesus, receive him.

That is what this day is about. I want to say that I was raised in church, in a home we call Christian, but you know what? On the day the we celebrated the birth of Jesus, we had him in the manger. Well, he didn’t stay in the manger. No! When he was about 30 years of age he was baptized in the Jordan River and when he came up out of the water, the Holy Ghost fell upon him in bodily shape of a dove, thank God. And a word from heaven came and said, “This is my son, whom I am well pleased.” The Father spoke. Thank God.

Well I know he was born, but my friends, if all that happened to him was that he was born, he can’t do a thing for us, but he went to the cross after he was baptized in water and the Holy Ghost, and preached for three to three and a half years. He went to the cross, suffered the death of the cross, went to hell by the Spirit of God, his spirit and his soul, and he was forsaken by the Father, the first time Jesus had ever been separated from his Father, because of our sins he was separated. He was made sin for us; he was made sick for us, that we’d be forgiven, redeemed, justified, made righteous, sanctified, be healed, thank God. With our sicknesses he was made sick, that we’d be healed.

He did all of that! Well why would we want to keep him in a manger? Well sure he was born. But the great time to celebrate his resurrection is every day of the week. Every day and that’s where I live. That’s where I’ve lived for years; I walk in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ and I minister that resurrection power to you throughout the world. Just speak Jesus after me, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…

God bless.

Merry Christmas and have a great New Year.
