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...

The Head of Christ is God

Transcribed and edited from:

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.

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

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 brokenhearted, preach deliverance to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, set at liberty them that are bruised. Thank God, amen, thank God, amen, thank God, thank God, amen, thank God, praise God amen, thank God.

The word is nigh thee, even in your mouth and in your heart which I preach, that 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, and 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, other devices and YouTube. Paul Peters, my co-host is on set with me, good morning Paul. [Paul: Good morning].

Well today we are going to be sharing some things that are difficult for the church to believe, the Body of Christ, that’s the church, you will find that in Ephesians chapter one; that is about dress, and women, about head in the church, about hair and men and women, we just have a hodge-podge of things. So I would say what the apostle Paul said in 2 Timothy 2:7:

Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. 

Back in the days of the wilderness in Argyle God ministered that verse to me and I humbled myself and did exactly what it says and God will give you understanding if you do likewise. Thank you.

So I want to start with Paul reading in 1 Timothy and I’m beginning with 1 Timothy because it appears to say something that it doesn’t and people like to be, well, they like to be right, even when they’re wrong and I’ve learned that’s a trait that is pretty common to man, and that includes women. So, we’re talking about women, dressing, not dresses, and their conversation (their behavior). So Paul is going to read and I’m going to tell you what this says, and I know there will be immediate controversy, but just consider what I say. Then, let’s look at what the apostle Peter says about the same thing and see if your controversy doesn’t settle down.

1 Timothy 2: 

9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 

10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

Amen. Now I’ve been teaching this stuff for 35 years from this building and not once will I ever tell a woman how to dress. Never have and never will. The bible tells us all we need to know. First of all they that are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God, (Romans 8) they also are daughters of God that are led by the Spirit. So if you are not led by the Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit, if you are not led by that Spirit you’re not going to follow God anyway, it’s impossible. Oh, I know it says be a doer of the word James 1:22, not a hearer only, deceiving your ownselves—the word says: “be led by the Spirit of God”. Did you get that? So, if you’re led by the Spirit, he’ll lead you according to be a doer of the word.

I’m in a great battle, I can tell you that right now, a great strait against sin. Sin would like to destroy me, would like to kill me. 1 John 3:8 says, that “he that committeth sin is of the devil”—“he that committeth sin is of the devil.” John 10:10 says “the thief (the devil) cometh not but to kill, steal and destroy destroy.” That’s what the devil wants,to kill you, he wants to kill me, thank God, God upholds me, I’m not special, you’re not either, you’re a servant of God. [If] you walk as a servant of God, the devil will want to kill you.

So, lets go back to what Paul said. Start at the very first three or four words, speak them and I’m going to comment.

9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel…

Now you say, “What’s modest?”

Only God knows, and God will lead you in your dress. Look I’ve been at this forty some years and I’ve been in this building thirty-five years and I know more than one woman that God has led to buy clothes and they didn’t even know or were sure what they were looking for and that God would lead them. I’ve known them that knew what they were looking for and God would lead them to their very clothes, and the cost was always right. What’s incredible is, sometimes a more costly apparel will be on sale for ½ price or less, God says “Get it.” So folks, don’t be so legal, learn to obey God, walk in the Spirit. Modest is, I’m not telling you what it is, God will show you how to dress in the Spirit. We are Spirit-filled people; we’re not a bunch of Pharisees; we’re not a bunch of legalists.

"...with shamefacedness and sobriety;"

Shamefacedness is modest, or honorable and it doesn’t mean walk around being ashamed and feeling sorry for yourself, or “Oh, things are so bad.” Don’t do that, that’s not God. Get rid of that religious appearance, that religious face, that religious spirit. Be yourself; if you’re one of those sad, down in the mouth people, I’ll by the gospel, and the power of God, I’ll change you, deliver you from that religious spirit that makes you an actor or an actress to be seen of man and make it appear “Oh this is terrible.”

No it’s not terrible, not at all, nothing terrible about obeying God. I’ve met people, “Oh the burden, I’ve got the burden.”

“Don’t say it”, the bible says. Don’t say you’ve got the burden of the Lord. No, put it on him, he carries it, you don’t carry the burden of the Lord.

Look, I was raised in John Wesley Methodist Holiness religion, John Wesley and that was the doctrine that I was raised in. Thank God.

"...and sobriety;"


…not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 

Alright, that says “Not with…” You’ll take it wrong. You will. What it says, those four things have nothing to do with your conversation (behavior).

…not with braided hair… 

If you feel right to braid your hair do it, obey God. What’s next?


“Oh, I can’t wear gold.” Well I can, I can, but it doesn’t add anything to me and it doesn’t take anything away from me. What’s next?


“Oh, should never wear pearls.” Why? It doesn’t have a thing to do with your behavior. I’m going to show you something folk, pearls, gold, hair—nothing to do with your spirituality.

 …costly array… 

Look, whatever God shows you to wear, tells you to wear, wear it, that goes for men too, Understand that. Whatever God leads you to wear, to do, do it and don’t let anybody condemn you.

10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 

Notice—not—with those things. BUT,

But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 

Yes, you see, that’s the way you walk. A woman that professes godliness with good works. You say, “Well I feed the hungry.”

Well let me tell you, the “love chapter” (1 Corinthians 13) says you can feed the hungry and if it’s not the will of God it will profit you nothing. Are you ready for this folks? Good works, let me tell you what good works are. Let’s read Mark 16, preaching the gospel, works that follow the gospel:

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 

Those are the good works that women do, men do. Turn to John 14:12:

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 

Notice that, the works that Jesus did, we’ll do. Now I know that says “he”, but let me tell you, in Acts 1:14-15 there were about 120 in the upper room with the women and Mary, the mother of Jesus and they were all filled the Holy Ghost and spoke in other tongues. I’m just showing you what the scripture says. I don’t care about your religious opinion, I don’t even want to hear it; I’ve already heard it.

Works that Jesus did—if you believe on him you will do the works he did and greater, men and women. So, it’s not the broided hair, not the gold, it’s not the pearls; it’s not the costly array; but it’s the good works; that’s what you want to have in your life, ladies.

Now, let’s go to 1 Peter 3. Now take these yourself, study them out, look at them, compare them, let’s see what Peter did. (I knew I’d run into a Barracuda teaching this, thank God.) Alright, let’s see what Peter says and it will help you much to understand what Paul said.

1 Peter 3: 

1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; 

2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 

3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 

4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 

Do you see what it says, “…let it not be…” that has nothing to do with it, outward dress, nothing. Wear what God leads you to buy and put on, wear. “Let it not be that.”

…outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 

I have a little fun with this, if you’re going to say that you shouldn’t have plaited hair, braided hair , or gold, if you’re going to say those two you shouldn’t do are you going to say the third one?

…putting on of apparel… 

You see how silly you are? You braid your hair because you want people to see it, or maybe you don’t. If you want to braid it fine, if you don’t, fine.

…wearing of gold… 

You wear gold because you want to be able to see, or you don’t wear gold because you’re so righteous. Are you not going to wear clothes? Are you going to attend a nudist colony? You see how silly religious spirits are? Thank God. But…

4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 

Let it be that, the hidden man, a meek and a quiet spirit. The heart, not what’s the outside. Folks this is easy, this is simple. It’s for the simple people, Romans 15 says with fair speeches deceive hearts of the simple. I thank God I’m simple, I didn’t always think that, but I am. But let it be a meek and quiet spirit and let God dress you.

I think I’ve said enough, would you? [Paul: Amen.] It’s a good time to run. No I don’t run, I’ve got the faith and grit to teach this. But more than that, I’ve got the direction of Jehovah, through the Holy Spirit to teach it and that’s what I’m doing.

Now let’s go to 1 Corinthians 11, another one that just stirs up the flesh. All three of these stir up the flesh, religious flesh. So let’s start in verse 1.

1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 

2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 

3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 

The head of every man is Christ, [Paul: Right.], the head of every woman is the man, [Paul: Right.], and the head of Christ is the Father, God. Is that right? [Paul: That’s right.] Now if you’ll read that and accept it, man is the head of women, oh, no, no, I don’t play with your petty wicked, witchcraft. Alright? I know you wicked spirit. You’re going to ask me, “Do you think every woman has a man as her head?” The answer is yes, in the church.

“Any man?”

No. The head of every woman is her husband.

“But I don’t have a husband.”

That’s fine. There is a man leading your organization and he is the one with authority in the organization or you are in rebellion. So that man is the head of that woman. Kathie D happens to be with my ministry, she’s fruit from my heart, fruit, Jehovah and myself, and I happen to be her head and she is a minister of the gospel out in front of the world but I’m her head.


Because I’m the head of this ministry, alright?

You say, “Well what if there is not a man leading my ministry?”

Then you’re out of order, simple as that.

“Are you telling me a woman can’t lead a ministry?”

I’m telling you a woman cannot usurp authority over a man, that’s what I’m telling you. Oh, Paul, I didn’t know we were going to get this controversial, but I love it.

“Are you telling me a woman can’t be the head of a ministry?”

I’m telling you a woman cannot be the head of a ministry.

“My, turn him off.”


You say, “Well what about Deborah, a prophetess?”

Deborah was a prophetess anointed by God to speak to the world, that’s a prophetess, an individual and that individual will be subject to the Lord Jesus Christ.

You say, “I’m submitted to Jesus.”

Of course, I’ve met a bunch of you; you’re not submitted to anybody. There used to be a group in Plano, a woman leading it. She had twelve men on her board. Those twelve men couldn’t do one thing unless that woman told them they could. Once she asked me to speak in an open forum where there was a preacher from Mid-Cities speaking, doing the ministering and she asked me to speak. She said, “Get up on that stump and speak.” I got up on the stump and started telling what she had written and she corrected me and I handed it to her and I said, “Speak it yourself.” I drove that woman out of Plano.

Look ladies, I don’t fear you, I fear God.

You say, “You hate women.”

Oh, how many times I’ve heard that, how many times I’ve heard that. What a laugh, what a laugh. That bothers me zero. Once I was talking to an international preacher, all over the world, and his wife was with us and we were having a meal at a local restaurant and I asked the man a question and the woman answered me. Like a shot, the Spirit of God said, “If I want to know something from you, I will ask you the question.” That woman has not liked me since. Too bad. Look folks this is the Spirit of God in me and the Spirit is what speaks out of me. I have an unction from the Holy One, I know all things. Paul, would you read 1 Corinthians 2, from the beginning to the end.

1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 

2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 

3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 

4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 

5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 

6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 

7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 

8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 

13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 

15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 

16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ. 

You notice he said, “he that is spiritual judgeth all things yet he himself is judged of no man?” You know that is the way I walk? And I want to show you something now, back to 1 Corinthians 11 verse 1:

1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 

You got that? You see who the head of the Corinthian people is? Paul. And do you know who his head is? Jesus. Do you know who the head of Jesus is? The Father. Does that say that? [Paul: Amen, yes it does.] That’s what Paul said. Guess what? I am the head of all of my people and Jesus Christ is my head and I follow him and you should follow me and Jesus is subject to the Father. This is so simple if you can read, if you don’t want to make some ecclesiastical statement, but just a simple scripture. I am the head of all my people, worldwide and Jesus Christ is my head and Jehovah is his head. All said, no more discussion, it’s over. Some foolish man said, “It’s either Doyle’s way or the highway.” Such a liar. I never said any such thing. I wouldn’t.


I know who my head is, Christ. I know who his head is, the Father. And I know whose doctrine I preach, the Father’s. And I know who leads me, the Holy Ghost. Thank God. So, relax, I’m not a cult leader. There are a bunch of them out there. I’m talking about men in the ministry that have no head. They think because they are submitted to somebody that says they’re a prophet; oh baloney. You don’t know what you’re talking about. You see I am the head of all my people.

“Who are my people?”

All those that believe my gospel, worldwide and Christ is my head and Jehovah is his head. Is that plain? No debate, no argument, nothing. Settled.

Now could we go on from where we were in 1 Corinthians 11?

4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.

Did you know if you you’re a man and you wear a covering on your head, do you know who you dishonor? Christ. Do you see that? If you pray with a covering on your head you dishonor Christ.


He’s your head. Folks this isn’t hard. You just don’t need some spiritual nut telling you what it says. That says praying or prophesying, doesn’t it? [Paul: Yes.]

5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head:

If a woman prays or prophesies with her head uncovered, dishonors who? Her head. So, if you walk with me (I’m bold, I don’t care) if you say you walk with me and I am not your head, a woman in my ministry, without a husband, and you prophesy or pray, you dishonor me. Folks, it’s simple and just because you’ve got a man that you call your husband, your head, and won’t submit to him, you’re lying, you’re in rebellion.

5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 

6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: 

Whose her cover? Her husband or the spiritual leader that she’s involved with if the spiritual leader is submitted to Christ. You see Christ is certainly submitted to Jehovah. You see I’m going to iron out some spots, wrinkles and blemishes out of the church.

…but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

Derek Prince was a personal friend of mine, very personal; visited his house many times in Ft. Lauderdale, [Florida]. Lydia Prince, good friend of mine, knew her well; you can read about things she said to me on my website. Derek at one time taught that a woman, to be covered, put a piece of cloth over head to prophesy or pray. Derek taught it, everyone knows it. I don’t know that Lydia wore that. I saw a video with Ruth [Derek’s 2nd wife] wearing it. That is error folks, to all people that believe that teaching by Derek Prince; that is absolutely the flesh, it is not God, it’s of the devil. Yes, right out of Derek Prince’s heart and mouth, it’s still the devil.

I went through a great battle here in this building over that because some thought they needed to wear it. I said, “No you don’t.” It is not what the word says. The covering is the husband or the spiritual man. It’s not a piece of cloth. Now I saw some things that disappointed me greatly. But people in the wrong spirit fought, “This is right!”

No it’s not.

That piece of cloth on your head is nothing but to be seen of men, and it’s wrong. Get rid of it. I wrestled a long time from verse 4 down, actually verse one, but from 4 down, and I finally came across a scripture, I could see it but did I believe it.

7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 

8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. 

9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 

10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. 

11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 

12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. 

13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 

14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 

16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

There it is. If you want to be contentious, covering back to verse one, that’s where your covering starts, it’s man, its Christ, it’s Jehovah. I’d like to be able to explain all of this to you but it’s impossible. You’ve been taught lies and you believed them. No such custom in the church? [Paul: Right.]

…neither the churches of God… 

Right, any of them.

It took me months, to say what I’m saying now. I’ve said it before, way back in the 1980s but we got a new day, we got a new generation. I’m speaking to a new generation of people worldwide, seven days a week, nine hours a week, thank God. Don’t let them play with you. It’s all right there, headship, as they like to call it, clear. That’s what it all boils down to. It doesn’t have anything to do with your hair. It has to do with, the head of every woman is the man, the head of man is Christ and the head of Christ is Jehovah. It’s all right there. No such custom. Look folks, I’ve said all I’m going to say. This will be up for you to look at. It doesn’t matter to me—I repent. It matters to me, I pray you’ll humble yourself and receive the engrafted word of God with meekness, which is able to save your souls (James 1:21).

I could weep for you, in fact I am, that you will humble yourself and let God show you the truth, submit to it and get rid of those fleshly things that you call godly. Amen.

It’s a good place to talk about Jesus. There is no name under heaven whereby one must be saved but the name of Jesus. Faith in that name, and one shall be saved, born again, receive Christ, Thank God, Hallelujah. Receive Christ and be one with the Lord, one spirit with the Lord, be delivered, be healed, be raised from the dead, thank God, saved. Thank God. One name under heaven just one, none other but Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, speak it after me, just simple, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…

God Bless.
