Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised...

My Beginnings in Sarcoxie

I was born in the same town my father and grandfather were born in. It is also the same town my great grandfather settled in and was buried.

There in Sarcoxie, Missouri, on a cold March day while playing in a gravel pile just as I was turning six, the Lord came and talked with me. I believe I was born again on that gravel pile. I knew as a young lad that I probably should be a preacher. But I had little understanding of what that meant. I knew that they were servants of God but where did they get their message? I didn’t want to be a preacher because I did not believe I was a good speaker and I didn’t know what to say. I did know though, that if I knew my subject I could communicate with anyone. I was surprised one day reading the Psalms “Open your mouth wide and I (God) will fill it” (Psalm 81:10). Then I was amazed at Jeremiah 1:9,

Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

That was just beyond my ability to comprehend. So I resisted preaching God’s word as long as I possibly could. But in 1969 the Lord visited me and made it clear, sell your veterinary hospital and practice and obey me. I knew that if I didn’t obey God it was certain death.

I sold my clinic and practice and went to Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I was baptized there in the Holy Spirit in my bed on July 24, 1970 and started speaking in new tongues. It was that September God spoke to me, “Go back to the land of your father’s”. We began packing the next day. Patti, my wife who is in heaven, had frequent respiratory problems. She had a friend that was a personal physician who she saw frequently. I was told by physicians she had the beginning signs of emphysema. On the way from Tennessee to the land of my father’s, Sarcoxie, God healed Patti while she was driving down US 60 near Cabool, Missouri. She never had another respiratory problem until she went to heaven. That healing came from my obedience.

We arrived in Sarcoxie. At the time I owned a farm just outside of town with a 143 acres, but it didn’t have a house I could stay in so I rented the only house in Sarcoxie that was available. It belonged to a woman that had just passed away at the age of 95. I knew her son very well. He said to me, “Doyle, I am ashamed to rent this house to you.” I replied, “No Floyd, don’t be, this is God.” There was grass growing up between the cracked floorboards and springs sticking out of the couch. God was already dealing with my pride and I knew it.

My ministry really began in Sarcoxie, Missouri in that house. My first bible study was there. It wasn’t long after I got there I believe God told me to start it. Only a few people came that first time. From September 1970 to June 1971 I held that bible study in my house on Thursday nights. I also visited other homes, went to Full Gospel Businessmen’s meetings and talked with their leaders. I immediately started preaching the bible to people I had met. I wasn’t afraid and I wasn’t ashamed. I could talk about the bible with anyone, I had been reading it intently for several years. The bible was always clear to me I just didn’t believe it. I would visit homes in the area and speak there. One night I was doing a home meeting and the man said, “Now you need to know that if you hear the words Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost, you need to know that the Holy Ghost is stronger”. I knew Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit were the same Spirit. Another night I was in a home talking to some people. A woman said to me, “You have only been following God a couple months? You sound like you have been following him for five years!” I also had an interview with the Gideon’s.

It was in Sarcoxie, at my farm in May 1971 after fasting three days that Patti, Kathy and I sat on the bridge covering Center Creek that we prayed “to seek of him (God) a right way for us” (Ezra 8:21). God answered that prayer.

I was born in Sarcoxie, I was born again in Sarcoxie, and my ministry began in Sarcoxie. Sarcoxie has never left my heart.

And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.

Exhortation - August 14, 2016

Transcript of exhortation from:
Sunday August 14, 2016 6:00 PM Livestream Broadcast

Kathie Davidson:
The Lord would say to you, What did I tell Peter when he was a fisherman? I said, “Come.” What did I tell Peter when he was in the boat and I was walking on the water? I said, “Come.” What did I say to the children when they were coming to me? I said, “Come.” My word to you is come, come, come unto me all that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest; my word to you is come. Come, come, I will not turn you aside, I will not turn you away, come, come. Lay down those things that hinder you from coming to me, put them away and pick up your cross daily and come with me, saith the Lord.

Leaking Vessels of Water of Life Churches

Hebrews 2 King James Version

1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip (Greek: run out as leaking vessels).

2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;

3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

Hebrews 2 New International Version

1 We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.

2 For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment,

3 how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him.

4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

From 1990 into the 2000’s people of Water of Life were filled with every kind of sin that I could imagine.

Ephesians 5 King James Version

1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

These Water of Life people were filled with all these sins mentioned above. They were vessels that had leaked out what had been revealed to them. But now many of those are gone from my ministry and I am sanctifying the ones that are left according to Acts 26;

15 And I (Paul) said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.

16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;

17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,

18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

God bless,

Interpretation of Tongue - August 3, 2016

Wednesday August 3, 2016 7:00 PM Livestream Broadcast

(Tongue and interpretation given by Kathie Davidson)

Did you hear the song, saith the Lord? Did you hear what my name is? My name is the great I AM. I AM is my name, not “I will be,” and not “I was;” my name is I AM. Today is the day of salvation, not tomorrow. Today is the day that I was raised from the dead, not tomorrow, not yesterday, today is the day; I AM today, your salvation is today, you look to me today, not for tomorrow, saith the Lord.
