Hello, I’m Doyle Davidson servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ ministering locally to the Body of Christ in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas and sent by God to your house to declare unto you the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 tell us what the gospel is, how that Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the scripture, he was buried, he rose again the third day, according to the scripture.
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 captives, recovery of sight to the blind, set at liberty them that are bruised.
The word is nigh thee, even in your heart and in your mouth, that is the word of faith which I preach, if you’ll confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God 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’m not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek for 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 broadcast receiving it on livestream Roku, AppleTV, YouTube and other devices.
My co-host Kathie Davidson to my left, good morning [Kathie: Good morning] and how are you? [Kathie: I’m doing well] We have a very interesting program today, and if you’re wise you won’t want to miss it.
Let’s have two songs by Terry Mai and Water of Life Boys, recorded by Terry in the nineties, Water of Life Boys and Terry in 2012.
“Rise And Be Healed”
“There Stood A Lamb”
The Lord had told me in 2003, the last broadcast that I made, the power of darkness was coming upon my ministry in 2004. By April it was evident it was here, it was coming and many were scattered, almost everybody was scattered, not completely. But in 2009, God brought KD to me from Frisco. In 2010 he brought Terre Brown to join us, we were praying, KD and I, and Terre joined us. I believe it was the day she joined us, well I know it was, Matthew 18:20:
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
That’s what the Lord said to me, he put the three of us together to be in our midst when we gather together in his name. Terre Brown has had a lot of things happen since then, so have I, so has Kathie D. Terre is coming forth with great ministry songs, power, faith, Holy Ghost. Here she is now with:
“That’s What The Cross Is For”
Terre Brown ministers strong in faith and Spirit. Kathie D. How are you? [Kathie: Doing well] I guess I should lead off. Since our script is in heaven we better follow it.
In the 1970s God told me when I was in Argyle he’d give me a ministry like his son. That was far out for me. I didn’t understand how that could be, not at all; but I never forgot it, it was in my heart, in my spirit, kept there. Since those days, much has changed.
2003 God told me darkness was going to hit my ministry, come upon it just like it did Jesus. That day I think I started accepting that I had a ministry more like Jesus than I had previously. I had warned the people more than once on television, radio, I was more than ready for God to inspect this place. “Are you? Are you? That would be my question. I’m not afraid for the Lord to inspect this place, are you? Are you afraid? Are you ready for him to inspect it?” Well, 2004 it came, no question. People were shocked. I came under great attack of the devil, power of darkness. I moved to Plano, July 1st, 2004 from Fairview. Trouble every day I was here, trouble met me. I’ve come to see the devil and divination met me, flattering divination caused me much trouble, both male and female. It was amazing what came down on me. People left, they were scattered just like the day of Jesus; they were scattered, they went every direction. Some went away with an agenda to bring me down. Some even told me “You’re going to die, your ministry is going to fall.” I wasn’t’ afraid. I had a newspaper man call me once from a prominent newspaper, very prominent. He said, “Does it bother you to be in the cross-hairs?
“No, it doesn’t, it doesn’t bother me, but you’re right.”
“They got you there, they’re shooting at you.”
“No, it doesn’t bother me, I put myself there. I could have hid.”
“Well,” he said, “It bothers me; it bothers me to treat you like we’re treating you.”
I said, “Don’t let it bother you friend, I forgive every one of you.”
That was an interesting phone call, you know that? [Kathie: Amen] That newspaper man’s conscience was bothered. Most don’t have a conscience, he did.
I said, “Don’t let it bother you, I’m fine.”
The people left Water of Life, longtime friends and acquaintances. The first person that I met in the Charismatic movement was Jack Turquette. Jack Turquette was of Christ for the Nations, he and Cindy. He started joining me in McKinney in my meetings and another one, I guess I should say the first one, was Dale Littrell and Sharon. Sharon’s in heaven, Dale is in McKinney, then Jack Turquette and of course I met Bruce Geer too. So those three were with me through the early days in McKinney, First United Methodist Church. Dale was with me, Jack Turquette. When I came to Plano, Jack had a prophecy for me, in 1980, I think it was June when the prophecy came.
He said “I have a prophecy for you.”
I said, “Well why didn’t you give it.”
“Too hard,” he said.
“Well tell me,” I said, “Tell me.”
He said, “Wicked men are waiting for you in Plano.”
“Good.” I was waiting for them.
Well when darkness hit, many left me and I wasn’t sure what would happen to all of them. Africa, Mexico, America, US of A, said, “He’s in sin!” Wrong. “He’s finished, it’s over.” “Let’s go back to our denominational churches, or somewhere.”
No, I wasn’t done. I fought on. In 2008 almost the last [of them] left, not all. 2009 Terry Mai went to heaven. Wasn’t funny, wasn’t easy. People would take what God would tell me to say and say it was sin. No it wasn’t sin, it wasn’t sin at all. Did you know God can tell somebody to speak something that you would call sin and it’s not? Well that’s what happened. And they ran like rats off a sinking ship, pardon me, you’ll have to forgive me, I’ve forgiven you a hundred times.
The wicked things that were said about me, to me, and you know the great bloggers that they’re so great on earth that they’d say anything, wouldn’t matter if it’s true, they’d say it. Say, who you talking about?
Are you a blogger? I’m talking about you.
What do you think, KD? [Kathie: I’m just smiling away] You are? [Kathie: Ya]
They would say anything to try to destroy me. None of them touched me. None of them. I laughed all the way through all their accusations.
Recently, just recently, I could see that God was going to tell them that he gave them to my ministry and he didn’t give them to any other ministry. I started getting excited. I loved everyone one of them; had thousands in Africa, America, I don’t even know how many tapes I gave away in the US of A, but a lot of them, free. You didn’t pay for any.
You know what? You didn’t believe anything you heard. You didn’t believe it, you did not believe it. And when that darkness hit, it did scatter you people. It did scatter you. Several days back, I started saying “The Lord only had 120. He sent out twelve, he sent out seventy to preach the gospel.” That’s in Luke 10:1. Seventy to preach the gospel and twelve and then seventy. On the day of Pentecost, he only had 120.
1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
So, on the day of Pentecost, Jesus just had about 120 (the woman tells me, see I can’t see the bible, been over eight years since I’ve read very much, I’ve read some on a tablet) but seventy, twelve and about 120. That’s all he had. [Kathie: Can I say something here?] “Why not?”
He had the twelve apostles which he sent out and they cast out devils and they healed the sick, they walked in that power. He sent out the seventy and they cast out devils, they healed the sick, they walked in that power. I want to read Matthew 26:31
31 Then saith Jesus unto them,
about the power of darkness
All ye shall be offended because of me this night:
They are offended,
for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad
Did not I say in my recording the last Sunday of 2003 that many would be offended? I even mentioned that two people [who] were relatives that if things were possible they’d be offended; did you know neither one of them are with me? [Kathie: I know]
Kathie: You know Jesus said in another place, the power darkness is come and no man can work (John 9:4) He said when that power hit.
It’s been grievous, my hearts been grieved, but now, God is speaking through me calling them back; all are getting the call that were with me, all. Will all make it back? How’d you like the way God put that? All are called, will they all make it?
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
I just realized that Jesus only sanctified about 120. Right? [Kathie: right] Amazing. A couple years ago, God started me sanctifying people. Would you read Acts 26?
13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
15 And I 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.
Pat, my wife, who God told me to marry in 1952, certainly suffered from 1984 to 2003 when she went to heaven One thing I am confident of, I kept her in my house. I wouldn’t put her in a nursing home, took care of her myself, I prayed for her. One day she said, “Doyle thank God for you if you hadn’t believed God and prayed we’d have all gone to hell.” You know I’m convinced, the Lord sanctified Patti through my faith, Kathy, our daughter and me were standing in her room when she went to heaven and she opened her eyes and waved twice and she left. She’s the first one, and she should have been, you know? [Kathie: ya] Terry Mai before he went to heaven, I spent several days, an hour or so, whatever it took, dealing with him and I’m convinced he’s sanctified, set apart to God. Now, others are being sanctified, have been, you, Terre others that I pray for, the men on staff, Sharion, others that watch my broadcast, that give money to this ministry, [and] watch.
Kathie: It’s a joy to hear them and how God’s sanctifying them.
Right. Can you think of anyone else that I’ve overlooked?
Kathie: Well I know for a fact through you and me, God sanctified Bernadette before she went to heaven.
Oh, without a doubt.
Kathie: Absolutely, that girl was ready to go.
Bernadette Rossato, France, went to Water of Life Christian Training School, no question.
Anymore that you can think of? The Lord knows that [those] we’re not mentioning, it’s because we don’t remember.
Kathie: Terre Brown’s mother Jane.
Oh thank you. I watched Terre’s mother, because of persecution because of her faith come under great affliction, affected her mind, she left Water of Life, I never stopped praying for her. She was on several medications. Before she went to heaven, I know she was not on any medication, except one, a diuretic,
Terre Brown: For awhile, none.
We watched, I did, Terre watched, told me what was going on daily in her room. I said, “God is sanctifying Jane,” and I knew she was going to heaven and I knew when she was ready. God sanctified Terre’s mother.
Let me just say, I don’t know how many of you will make it back. I’d be happy if it’d be about 120, [Kathie: Amen] but God knows, I don’t; He knows whether you love the world more than him, he knows what kind of sin you’re in and you can’t turn it loose, you won’t leave your sin behind.
I heard this testimony once about a young man [who] had a problem, he told a friend of mine he had the problem; he said, “I rather enjoy it, you think God will forgive me?”
The friend of mine said, “No, he won’t forgive you until you humble yourself and ask.”
“I really enjoy it, I don’t know, I can’t let it go.”
I’ve seen more than one, can’t let their sins go, their pleasures. My friends, you need to lay it down, you need to lay it down and if you’ve been a Water of Life person that the gospel has been preached to, you need to come back and not necessarily come to this building but back on television and let me say something more: If you come back, you come back giving some money. I’ve taught this all these years, a person that is faithful with their money will be faithful to God; but if you have set your heart on your riches, I pray that God grants you the grace to come back, give up your riches, your heart on them and do what God had you doing and that’s giving to Water of Life Ministries; otherwise you won’t be back.
Kathie’s message: This Jesus, Couldn’t Be Killed
10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?
There it is folks, faithful with money, faithful with everything. Some of you thought you had given enough and just decided you wanted to do something else with it. Sin, sin of rebellion, sin of rebellion. When you leave a work that God has set you in, you’ll never obey God again until you return to what you left. God is the only one that can receive you back.
Look folks, you can listen to independent tongues and people—wicked hearts only want what they want and they don’t know that there’s a place in eternity called hell, eternal punishment, never stops. It’s scary. For a person who knows to do good and doeth it not, it is sin.
Father I pray grace and mercy upon all these people. All that have believed my gospel, received Jesus through the gospel and have decided they don’t want to go on, but they want to do something else. I pray that your mercy and grace will bring them back to this ministry where they started out with the gospel.
God bless you,
See you next time.
