It is pretty well known how Doyle has fought off death numerous times in the past several years, actually since December 2010. This evening I was reading through some Tongues and Interpretations from previous years and came across these in 2009 where the Spirit of God was prophesying of the dark days that lay ahead for Doyle:
Tongue and Interpretation- Kathy Mai and Doyle Davidson - June 22, 2009
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. Why do you want? Because you won’t let the Lord be your Shepherd. The Lord desires to be everyone’s Shepherd. He wants to lead you in the valley of the shadow of death, he wants to restore your soul. He wants to deliver you from all evil. He wants you to submit to him, obey him. He’s the true shepherd, the good shepherd, the shepherd of the flock. He will lead you in places you cannot imagine. He will bring you to places you did not know existed, if you’ll stand up and follow him, hear his voice, this day, saith the Lord. For I desire to lead you in a place you cannot imagine that I have prepared for everyone who will obey me. For I desire to see you achieve what I have prepared for you, saith the Lord.
Tongue and Interpretation- Kathy Mai and Doyle Davidson - August 9, 2009
The Spirit of the Lord is upon you to do you good. The Spirit of Life is greater than the Spirit of Death, fear not death. Be not afraid that you are going to die. You’re not going to die. Gird up your loins and believe this gospel. This gospel will minister strength to you. Fear not. Don’t let your flesh rule you. Let the man that’s inside of you, that was raised from the dead, rule you. Be bold. Yield your tongue and worship God, for my Son is in you to do you good.
This is similar to what happened to the apostle Paul in the book of Acts, chapter 21:
10 And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus.
11 And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.
12 And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.
13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.
14 And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord be done.
Just as Paul willingly faced the difficult days ahead for him, wanting only the will of the Lord to be done, so is Doyle’s commitment to God’s will. Doyle faced death, fought it straight on and resisted dying; he walked through the valley of the shadow of death and the Lord has upheld his servant just as the Lord spoke in 2009!
