Transcribed from audio Friday April 3, 2015
Hello, I’m Doyle Davidson, a servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ ministering locally to the Body of Christ in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. I’m doing this audio from my office in my home in Plano, Texas. It will be transcribed later and be posted on Facebook.
So, I’m doing this to my friend, fellow worker, my spiritual son in Harare, Zimbabwe; Steddie Muserera and all of his co-workers. Greetings with the love of God from my heart to all of you, wherever you are in Africa. In 1990 to 1993 or 1994, I sent over 200,000 teaching tapes to Africa and many books; they were all given free of charge and my friend Steddie was my office manager in Harare at the Masasa House. It was a great blessing to work with Steddie during those years. I was sent by God to Zimbabwe, New Years Day 1985. In October 1984, I met Ezekiel Guti by divine appointment at the Tomb of the Garden in Jerusalem. I had never met him; I knew I was coming to Zimbabwe in January but Ezekiel didn’t know who I was. I had never seen him but it was divinely appointed by our Father Jehovah. What a blessing. So on New Year’s Day 1985, my wife Patti, who’s in heaven, Terry Mai, my son-in-law and fellow apostle who’s also in heaven, Kathy Mai, my daughter who is ministering locally from Plano and myself, boarded a plane to fly to Harare, Zimbabwe. Went by invitation, but more importantly at the direction of our Father, Jehovah. I’d seen visions of many black people setting straight up erect, and God had told me I would minister to those people. I did not know that those people were sitting on benches without backs but, when I arrived along with my fellow workers in Zimbabwe, I was privileged to speak at the Mother Church on Big Sunday in Harare. I had one hour to speak, 3:00 to 4:00, and it was a tremendous blessing. I believe that this day I said these words to Zimbabwe:
“You are a nation of primarily black people and God sent me to your country with the gospel, the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ”. And I said on that day, “if you will believe my gospel and you are a nation of black people primarily, that God will be glorified through you”.
I had no plans to say such things. It was all the Spirit, the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost, the Sprit of God all the same, speaking through me to that nation. And I was so blessed to hear myself say that, knowing I was an apostle, prophet, teacher and a preacher to the Gentiles. I was privileged to meet Ezekiel and Eunor again in Harare. And I was pleased to meet my friend Bartholmew Manjoro and his wife Apphea, of whom I’d met earlier in Plano as he attended Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas. Bartholomew was our escort; he drove us around in that yellow station wagon, Patti, Terry, Kathy Mai and myself, Doyle Davidson. It was lovely to visit that beautiful country. I did not know what to expect, but it was a great experience for me. We ministered in the churches in Harare, then we moved to Chinhoyi and there we had a wonderful service on a Sunday morning and afternoon. And from there we went north to Kariba; and there we found a great love, a great love for Doyle, Patti, Terry and Kathy by the people that were there. We’d also experienced that great love in Chinhoyi, in Jerusalem, pardon me, in Harare, I have Jerusalem on my heart. It was a great blessing and Bartholomew became a very good friend, one that loved me, showed respect for my ministry and love to me and my family. Thank God.
Ezekiel Guti,a few years later, talked to me about a young man named Steddie Muserera. Ezekiel knew you Steddie; he knew your father, he knew your family. Ezekiel was very fond of you; he spoke great words about Steddie Muserera, great words. I was pleased to hear that your name was representative of your personality. I talked with you Steddie, on the phone many times for the next three or four, whatever it was, years. I feel, did feel, and I do, like I knew you, like you were a personal friend of mine. Then the day came to where God pulled my ministry out of Harare, out of all Africa and brought it back just to the U.S. and there I went through, beginning in 2004, a great trial of affliction; a trying of my faith like it had never been tried. There I saw and experienced, felt and watched the book that I published in 1990, Jesus on the Cross a transcription of some tapes that the Lord had spoken through me in the eighties; and in that book I had spoken how that spirit, I spoke that at North Texas State University in Denton, Texas in 1980, that night in April of 1980, I had spoke about the spirit of Jesus Christ and the Lord, the Father Jehovah, had ministered personally to me that that spirit of Jesus Christ had been tried every way that it could be tried and it never failed and it never would. Oh what a blessing. You can read how in the New Testament how that spirit of Jesus, anointed became Jesus Christ and how he conducted himself on the cross. Our Brother, our Lord, our King, the One that we have trusted in all of these years.
Oh, I want to see you [Jesus]. I want to see him face to face and I’ve invited him at whatsoever time it would be right for Him to show up in Plano. Once when I was really being tried in the nineties I said, “You can come and get in the back of my SUV and you can talk to me and the friend that was with me. We won’t even look back at you, if you want to ride with me and talk to me. It would be a great encouragement to me. You know many say that they have seen you face to face and talked to you Lord, but I have not found enough grace in your sight that you would appear to me and talk.”
And Lord Jesus, raised from the dead, the man that I greatly love, admire and worship, my great friend, one that knows me and understands me and I know you and the Father Jehovah and I know both of you and understand both of you and you said to me, “I don’t need to come see you, you believe me without it.”
What could I say when the Lord of lords and the King of kings speaks that way to you. All you can do is say thank you. But I’m going to see you and I’m going to see you in the air along with all of my fruit, co-workers, all that I’m working with, you told me that, and you told everyone, that when you found us, when you appeared, whatever we were doing, you would give us authority over what we were doing. I said, "O-K, that’s going to be cool." So I know I don’t need to remind you of your promises, I know that. You know them much better than I ever did or ever will but I remember enough to remind you, Jesus; enough that you will say, “Oh yes, I know what you’re talking about Doyle.”
Well, some of my co-workers, friends are in Africa, they are all over the world, but Harare, Steddie Muserera, his wife Susan, all, his father and mother, and all that work with him—they work with me in the Spirit. So Lord, I know that you found Steddie faithful to do your work before I ever heard of him; you made him for the job that he’s doing in Africa; you made him with a heart that would hear the voice of God, that would humble himself and obey the Father, Jehovah.
So Steddie, I’m your spiritual Father, but know you’ve got one Father—Jehovah and you’ve got one Lord—Jesus and I am grateful to introduce you to both of them. I am really touched in my heart to do what I’m doing in this audio. Thank God. Amen. So Steddie, and to all your co-workers and all of my friends in Africa from South Africa, Ivory Coast, Zaire, Nigeria, Malawi, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zambia, I’m sure some more, I just want to say: I expect the Body of Christ in every country of Africa to stand up with the gospel of Jesus Christ in your heart, be strong, be bold, fear not, God is with you and I love you and I’m going to stop this audio because I’m receiving great opposition to my faith. Love you, God bless you.
This will come out transcribed, not too many hours hence.
God Bless Steddie, love you, good day from Plano, Texas.
