I am a prophet of God and I am an apostle, and I’ve known that since the early 1980’s. I also experience what apostles experience, as described in 2 Corinthians 12:
7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
11 I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.
12 Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.
Note the Strong’s definitions of those words:
Infirmities – weaknesses. even feeble mind and body
Reproaches – insults, I’ve received many insults over the years!
Necessities – pains throughout my body
Persecutions – pursuit by people with evil spirits to afflict me
Distresses – to be as in a straight jacket, a very difficult feeling!
Most of these I can overcome within a few hours, some a few minutes, but some maybe a couple of days. I am in perfect health, have not been to a physician since 1992 and would not go for any reason. I have overcome medicine, physicians, dentists, and veterinarians!
I have received the same revelation that the apostle Paul received, and I’ve experienced many of the same afflictions that he was afflicted with, AND like him my strength is made perfect in weakness! Further I want to show you Psalm 143:3,4 “For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead. Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.” I have lived in Psalm 143 the past seven years. My eyes have been afflicted because of my persecutors and I cannot see. However, I’m beginning to push off of my soul sins that were laid upon me by God’s people, and I can see a little more light returning. For the past three years I lived in complete darkness. I expect complete overcoming of all of these afflictions as the Lord leads me to victory! You can read Galatians, fourth chapter and then the sixth chapter. In the sixth chapter Paul has overcome his eye problems and has written the book of Galatians with his own hand.
Let me point out one more thing, Ephesians 3:13 “Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.” You can read about Paul’s afflictions all through the epistles, and I can say when you read about his you are reading about many of Doyle’s. “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” I Corinthians 15:10
Servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ
