A Testament of the Grace of God on His Servant
by Kathryn Currier with Doyle Davidson
God began speaking to Doyle that he was a prophet in the early 1970s and he struggled for years to believe that. God would say, “You’re a prophet.” Doyle would say, “I’m not a prophet.” Over and over this went on. False prophets were ministering such lies as “God will use you as a prophet, but you’re not a prophet.” Those statements, along with Doyle’s own unbelief made it an incredible fight to be able to accept what God was saying to him. He has shared openly, “If I was honest I would have said, I don’t want to be a prophet. I could see in the bible what happened to prophets”. He told God, “I’m not a prophet and my Dad’s not a prophet.” The Lord responded, “Amos already said that” and He sent him to the verse in Amos 7, “Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet’s son; but I was an herdman and a gatherer of sycamore fruit.” Doyle was a horseman, a husbandman; his Dad was a horseman and his Grandfather was a horseman.
Finally he accepted that he was a prophet; then God told him he was an apostle. When the Lord told him he was an apostle he said, “Use Hagin and Copeland, you’ve exalted them and given them money.” Needless to say, Jesus did not appreciate that comment and said: “Go get your bible. I have something to say to you, turn to Romans chapter 9:
13) As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
14) What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
15) For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
16) So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
17) For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
18) Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and who he will he hardeneth.
19) Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
20) Nay but, Oh man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
21) Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonor?”
Doyle has shared many times about the correction he received from the Lord and one of those times he said he spoke too much and God sharply rebuked him saying, “Shut up! You have already said too much!” He received a headache with that rebuke and retained it for several hours. God ministered great fear to him that day.
Late one night in 1979 God told Doyle to take his bible and go to the back of the house, He wanted to talk to him. The Lord took him to Ezekiel and ministered to him these verses in chapter 3:
4) And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel and speak with my words unto them.
5) For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
6) 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.
7) But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee, for they will not hearken unto me; for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
8) Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.
9) As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
10) Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee, receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.
11) And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord God; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.
God said to him, "I am sending you to the United States of America and they will not hear you." He also told him, "be not rebellious, like they are rebellious." Doyle asked, “If they won’t hear me, why are you sending me?" God didn’t answer him but He told him in 1985 that He was going to judge America out of his mouth.
Over the years God had talked to him about Jeremiah 1, but in 2009 God convinced him that this pertained to his life, especially verse 5:
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
