Hello, I’m Doyle Davidson, a servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ ministering locally to the Body of Christ in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, sent by God to your house to declare unto you the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15: 3 and 4 tells us what the gospel is, how that Jesus died for our sins, according to the scriptures, he was buried, he rose again the third day, according to the scriptures.
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 them that are bruised.
The word is nigh even in your heart and in your mouth, that is the word of faith which I preach, that if you will confess 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 am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who 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 bc receiving it on Livestream, Roku, Apple TV, Youtube and other devices.
Paul peters my co-host to my left, good morning, Paul. [Paul: Good morning]
I’m going to ask you to read Chapter 1,2 and 3:1-20, in the book of Ezekiel:
1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,
3 The word of the Lord came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the Lord was there upon him.
4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.
8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.
9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.
12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.
14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.
15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.
16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.
19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.
20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.
23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.
24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.
25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.
26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.
27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.
28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.
1 And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.
2 And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.
4 For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God.
5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
8 But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
9 And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
10 And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.
2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
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;
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.
12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place.
13 I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing.
14 So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.
15 Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days.
16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
Amen. You know I just noticed something in the cherubims: one had the face of a man, one an ox, one an eagle and what was the other one? [Paul: a lion] That’s what I thought, Jesus. [Paul: Amen]
March 1979, the Lord woke me up, sent me to a bedroom in the northwest corner of my house in Fairview. There he talked to me. He told me he was sending me, I’ll reduce it, to America, when I read what you just read, verse one up to chapter 3, that they wouldn’t hear me but they would know that a prophet had been sent to them. Since that time, things have changed, changed a great deal.
1970 I had sold 121 Veterinary Hospital and my practice and obeyed God. In 1980 Judge Ryan, a district judge in Collin County directed Dr. Starnater, a veterinarian in Plano to contact me and to tell me that 121 was in receivership and he had administration of it and I knew more about it than anyone else, so he wanted to give me opportunity to buy it. [The judge] said, offer this much, if that’s too much, offer this much, if that’s too much, make me an offer and I’ll give it to you. Those were strange words to me. I didn’t know how low I could go; I knew the property, I built it. I bought the land, I founded it, I built the hospital, established the practice. That was in February of 1980.
I wrestled for three days with that idea of buying that property back. I knew I could make a lot of money, I knew it, I knew that when I built it. For three days, the Lord would say, “Do you want it? Do you want it?” Three days! Three days, Jesus Christ raised from the dead [said], “Do you want it?”
“Do you want it?”
The third day I said, “Wait a minute, it’s not what I want, it s what you want!” and then he quit talking to me. I was amazed. Finally he said, I was insistent, I can be persuasive if I need to be. I can be persuasive with the Lord if I need to be, he made me that way. I said, “It’s not what I want, what do you want?” He would not answer. Finally, finally he said, “I don’t want you to have it.”
I thought, “What—what if I had said yes?!” I felt like I was the bottom of the ninth in a great baseball contest and I could make a right decision and win the game or I could make the wrong and lose it; and I felt like, “My goodness what if I’d of lost it?!” that was February 1980.
April I was going to Justin, Texas, Bobby Seals, calf roper, World Champion and World Champion bull rider, I think; I knew him and Sholders, and several of them. And I was in Lincoln Park, on 380, and the Lord said to me, “Go to Plano and speak to the people of Plano.” And I said, “And what shall I say to them?” “Look in the book of Acts where Paul was in Antioch and you’ll understand.” I read the eleventh, but then thirteen; Paul would you read, Chapter 13, verse one:
Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
Five prophets and teachers right? [Paul: right.] There’s Paul/Saul and there’s Barnabas and I’m a pretty good student of the bible and “Go to Plano, and speak to the people of Plano” and “read about where Paul was sent to Antioch and you’ll understand”. I thought, “Are you telling me I’m a prophet? A teacher, yes that I can accept but not a prophet. I’m not a prophet, my father was not a prophet.” I think that was said later, by me, to the Lord, I’m not sure when, but the Lord said “Someone else said that before you.”
Turn to Amos chapter 7:
14 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 sycomore fruit:
15 And the Lord took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel. Well that’s what I said, but“
Amos had one more credential than I’ve got, he gathered sycamore fruit and I haven’t done that. I knew I was had. I knew it. I knew I was a prophet sure enough. My Lord, I did not want to be a prophet. I could read what happened to prophets. I knew that a prophet was a teacher, and one that established a ministry first, a church, but not a church, a ministry, the Body of Christ and when he was sent he became an apostle. Oh, I knew.
Well I came to Plano, you can read about it [here] and then in 1985 I was sent to Zimbabwe as an apostle. I knew I was a prophet sent to Plano, I knew that. I knew a man was a prophet and no, a woman is a prophetess, not a prophet, and a woman is not an apostle. I knew well that judgment would come through that prophet; to wherever the Lord sent a prophet or an apostle, judgment followed.
I’ve lived all these years knowing that one day Plano would be judged. And I’m telling you it won’t be long. It’s already started; it started in 2004 when the power of darkness came upon the city, my ministry, the county. I’ve had shaky days knowing that Plano would see some ugly things because I was sent here by God as a prophet. Amen. I was really disappointed in this ministry, because the people wouldn’t believe, but God told me they wouldn’t in 1979.
So one day, Terre Brown who can be strong, not can be, is, came to me and she was pretty disturbed, somewhere in 2004, or 2005, not sure, but she was hot in spirit and she said, “How are we ever going to believe when all you say to us is ‘You’re not believing?’” and my response went back to her about as quick as hers went forth to me, “Well how are you ever going to know that you’re not believing unless someone tells you you’re not believing.”
She’ll have to comment, but she made a change and I want to make sure she gets adequate comment time, she will.
There’s another lady that sent me an email and she said, “When we came to Water of Life we didn’t have any money; we lived in a house that the sheetrock wasn’t even finished and curtains, window treatments, hung over the doors and we’ve given this much money to Water of Life; I’d like to say we believe something.”
I’d like to say that too on your behalf. Are you believing that, today? Are you following the Lord? Are you following the Holy Ghost? Are you believing the gospel? Or are you doing your own thing?
One thing you, all of you will know: a prophet was sent to Plano.
You got anything to say? [Paul: No I don’t.]
I loved hearing you read that. I don’t think I ever noticed about the man, the lion, the eagle and the ox. I’m sure I had but Lord, all of a sudden I thought my gosh, that eagle is the United States, a man, an ox, a lion, Jesus, an elder, an apostle, prophet, amen, sent by Jesus to Plano, then America, then the world.
In 1992 I went national and international, in February, television, satellite, radio, shortwave. Amazing what God has done with someone that didn’t want to do the job. The Lord told me in 2007, “…he made me for this job.”
[Paul: I will say, on your website there is a series of testimonies called “The Making of a Prophet”, I guess that’s how God showed you or proved to you that you were a prophet.]
I have to tell you and the world something, turn to Jeremiah 18, “the potter’s wheel” and read until you get to the word “and I will cause you to hear my word.”
1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,
2 Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. That is for certain, I heard it because the Lord caused me to hear it.
Thanks for the word, “The Making of a Prophet”, good Lord who would have thought.
I believe its Ephesians 3:20: Let’s take a chance and see if this isn’t God, it says something that is astonishing:
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
The cherubims, there is a man, then there’s an ox, then there’s a lion and then there’s an eagle. The man is an apostle, the ox is an elder, the lion is Jesus, the eagle is America—Daniel 7:4.
Turn, Kathie, to 1 Peter 5 and see what Peter says about himself:
1 Peter 5:
1 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
Peter said he was an elder and we know he was an apostle; I’m an apostle, I’m an elder that grinds out the corn; Jesus crucified, in me; America, the eagle, the gospel, going around the world, all over the world from Plano, Texas.
