Receiving the Gift of Righteousness

Transcribed and edited from:

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, 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 hath raised him from the dead you shall be saved, for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, 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.

Kathie Davidson, co-host to my left, good morning. [Kathie: Good morning] And are you ready? [Kathie: Yes] We’ve got an interesting program, but first we’ve got Terry Mai with two songs, “Rise and Be Healed” and “I Am, You Said To Me” and then we’ll introduce Terre Brown with her song after we read Ezekiel 36. Are we ready? Terry’s songs:

Thank God. We have Terre Brown coming, going to minister a song, she’s strong in faith and strong in spirit. But first Kathie D is going to read Ezekiel 36:

25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Those are great promises, promised through the prophet Ezekiel, what God was going to do when Jesus came and that’s exactly what he did and he’s changed my heart, Kathie D’s heart, Terre Brown’s heart, now Terre’s going to minister a song, “God On The Mountain”, Terre Brown.

I want to recommend to everyone that seriously wants to follow Jesus; if you want to play games, do what you’re doing; but if you want to follow Jesus, take up your cross daily and follow Jesus, you’ll hear his voice, you’ll know his voice, read the book of Romans, all sixteen chapters, aloud as many times as you can read it. When you get tired reading it maybe God is talking to you. But Romans is where I started. Argyle, 1972, I spent ten weeks in the Holiday Inn, trying to buy some property to live on but God wanted me to get some word in the book of Romans. I finally reduced it down to the first five chapters actually, two, three, four and five, but one was extremely beneficial, “when they knew God, when they knew God, they would not glorify him as God,) Romans 4, believing, and were not thankful, then he turned them over to some wicked works and they practiced it. I’ve got Kathie D going to read scripture out of Acts 13.

Kathie: If I can say something also here, back in the late eighties, God did the same thing with me. I know because of my children, but he put my out in Frisco, there was nobody around us at that time, there were no homes around us, we were the only house within five lots on both sides, I couldn’t call Plano, it was long distance, put me out by myself and my husband at that time was working day and night so he was hardly home, I had two small children. I spent months doing the same thing, reading Romans, first like I said, I started reading the whole book, then went down to eight, then toward the last, 3,4 and 5, 3, 4 and 5, 3, 4 and 5 and everyday like I told you this morning was like a gut-wrencher, but it was glorious and when I was finished I understood the gospel.

Amen. Well how about, are you ready to read?

Acts 13:

8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him.

10 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?

11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.

12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.

Do you know that’s what God does with false prophets that try to turn people that walk with me, from the faith? I’ve walked by faith all these forty-six years and people don’t know what faith is, they don’t believe, they don’t have the heart. I’ve watched God deal with some people. You know I knew one person that railed against me and this happened to be a woman and she said this herself, that she broke her arm because she railed against me. Well that woman has left my ministry; foolishly went after money, after money. I had the faith to get that family started, I imparted spiritual gifts to them, faith to them. They got very well off, made good money then departed from the living God because of their pride.

So, do you want to give the definition of those words?

Kathie: Right, if we go back to verse 10, this is Paul speaking: O full of all subtilty and all mischief, that [word] subtilty: lure, a snare, hence a craft, a deceit, a guile, a lure, a snare.

A lure and a snare?

Kathie: Right, deceit, guile, lies. And then mischief: unscrupulous. [Doyle: Unscrupulous, yes?] In other words, do dishonest things, things that aren’t right, illegal things, doesn’t bother you at all.

That’s right, no conscience.

Kathie; Right. It also means to be cunning, the same thing. And then it says: “…will thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord…” and that pervert, if you look it up, it means to distort, twist it, and it says to oppose or plot against the saving purposes and the plans of God.

Amen, that’s a false person. [Kathie; Right.] False prophet, Elymas. You know in those days they dealt with false prophets, they dealt with people that were unbelievers. Today, you can scarcely find anybody that will believe. They like to be religious. You know, religion, I couldn’t stand, that’s a blessing from God. I could see phony people; that was the wisdom of God in me, the wisdom being Jesus. I could tell somebody that were conning, that was discernment in my heart, it’s amazing how God made my heart. He told me in the seventies he didn’t have anyone except myself to do this job. I said, “Well, if I’m the only thing you’ve got, you are out of subject matter. You need to understand if you don’t have anything but me, you don’t have anything.” Well, he let me know he could change me.

I marvel at what God has done in my life. You know I had over 200 hours university level in science and veterinary medicine. But walk and be a preacher, not me, I didn’t want that. But in 1958, University of Missouri, Columbia campus I believe it was August 1st, rotating the tires on my car, just finished all and was putting the last hubcap on and amazing, the Spirit of God fell upon me, fell upon me and the first thing I started saying, praying, “Lord don’t take me to hell or don’t send me to hell, don’t send me to hell.” I really attribute that to when my Dad was seventeen he had appendicitis and was very sick and God took him and showed him hell, three times, took him down and showed him hell and Dad saw people there he knew. It scared him and he’d tell me that story and I didn’t want to hear it but it got in my heart, it got in my heart.

You know Terre Brown tells a story, a testimony, I believe it was 2009 God took her, she’s a church-goer, Water of Life but God took her and started talking to her and brought her to repentance of her sins, long past, religious sins, unbelief taught by theologians and the one thing Terre shared with me was, she was afraid God would send her to hell. She had that in her heart, thank God. And if…I can minster fear to your heart of going to hell, I want to.

Kathie; You know that happened to me not long after I got to Plano. [Doyle: Yes] Remember God was dealing with me and I remember at one point thinking, “Am I even going to come out of this, am I going to survive? Am I going to hell? [Doyle: Right] Those are scary days.

There’s a hell.

Kathie: There is a hell.

And it’s where the worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched.

Kathie: And it is forever.

It’s torment, eternal torment, day and night, you can never get rest, be tormented throughout eternity. Kathie D spoke yesterday of Lazarus and the rich man; and the rich man was in hell and he’s tormented. And I believe he wanted Lazarus to bring a drink of water.

Kathie: He said, “Just touch the end of my tongue, because I’m tormented in this flame.”
Tormented, eternal torment, fire, brimstone. Hell was created for the devil. You can find that in the book of Isaiah, but men like to follow the devil. I tell you I had a fear of God. I could see through religious people, they couldn’t deceive me. Once my Dad had an employee, several of them. Once I said to a man, “What do you think about divorce?” He went to Redwood Church.

“Oh, used to oppose it, until my son got a divorce, now I don’t have an opinion.”

I thought, “Well you don’t stand for anything.”

If you’d let your child direct what you believe, you have no courage, none at all.

I heard another one once say: “If I wasn’t afraid I’d lose my salvation I’d kill this guy.” [Kathie: He’d already lost it] There you go.

So you see I heard those hypocrites, my heart was honest, besides I was raised reading the new testament a lot. I was raised on the Proverbs. My mother used get myself, oldest sister and then the middle one Betty, and she’d say, “Alright it’s time to read your proverb for the day; we’d get it, read it. I have to admit, mine disappointed me most of the time.

Kathie: I remember those little bread things. My girlfriend’s parents had one that you pulled the Proverbs out of.

I wanted them to give me something that God didn’t want me to have.

So, I just want to encourage you, now while you’re young or a hundred, believe my gospel, believe my gospel.

I was surprised that God ordained me to preach the gospel before I came forth from my mother’s womb. I was totally surprised but obviously he did; that’s why my father, Lyle Luther Davidson was always telling me, “You’ll have to preach the gospel, Doyle. You’re going to have to preach the gospel.”

I didn’t have a clue what was in front of me, growing up as a young man in the US Navy, four years, hospital corpsman, university, six years; had my own practice of veterinary medicine the second year I was out of school. I worked one year for Derryberry-King Clinic in McKinney (1963) great friends of mine, another year I did practice [in] Tennessee, Missouri, without an office (1962). But in 1964 I bought 3-1/2 acres of land; I was blessed greatly in the horse business as an equine practitioner. I started with my own practice with Carl Miles, an oil man from Abilene, a great friend of mine. He owned, along with Harvey Frugal, three ranches. One: in Celina, two: in Stephenville, three: Abilene, Cee Bar Ranches. Three hundred brood mares, six stallions, that’s what I started out with, that was God, because God said, “You’ve only got seven years of this.” I didn’t know that, but I was pretty aware of it.

In 1969, “Sell it!” I did, I had a state-of-the-art veterinary hospital, one of the nicest, large animal surgery facilities, had a large animal surgery table, I could put anything on it, secure it, do surgery on it. I was well respected by colleagues and many clients. In 1969 God said, fun’s over, “sell your hospital and practice and obey me.” I did. I did and for ten years I studied the word, 1970 through 1980.

I preached the gospel starting in 1972 in my home, in 1973 in the Methodist Church on Saturday for six months, home bible studies I’ve taught, 1977 [I was a] lay speaker [in the] First United Methodist Church in McKinney, 1978, 1979, 1980, also taught Sunday School 1977 and 1978. [I was the] president of the Fellowship class in 1978 and 1979. God elevated me, blessed me quickly. Dr. Canafax told Terry Mai, my son-in-law what amazed him about me, I was self-taught. I said, “No, no I was not self-taught, God taught me.” It says that in, [Kathie: The comforter will come and he’ll do the teaching.]

Well, I never expected to be where I’m at but today I just finished eight years where my eyesight was suddenly and greatly impaired, starting in December 2008. By June 2009 I couldn’t see to drive, but I’ve worked- KD got a tablet and put the bible on the tablet and the Constitution and other things and I read on that until January 2013. Kathie D read to me Daniel 11:20-28 and I said, “I believe this is the United States of America.”

Kathie: The last thing you read on your tablet was Daniel 11:20-28. [Doyle: That’s what you said.] We left to go to Navasota and within hours your eyesight was gone.

Well, you know it’s not been fun, it’s been humbling, it’s been scary; I get lost in my own house, in this building where I’m speaking, amazing. But this past year, 2016, I don’t know when, a few months back, things started changing for me. I could see images of automobiles crossing at stop lights, at stop signs. But now I’m more excited, I can see a car coming at me, in a car, not driving. It doesn’t look like two motorcycles side by side. I can see this headlight, something between it and that headlight. That something is dense, that’s why I can see it, it’s more dense than the dark, that’s why I can see it; but I got excited, just a couple, three days ago, few days. KD read Psalm 142 to me. She’s going to do it now.

Psalm 142:

1 I cried unto the Lord with my voice; with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.

2 I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.

3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

4 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.

5 I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.

6 Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

7 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.

The first thing that I saw, got a revelation of it, when KD read it to me, thou knewest my path, I said “Well, you are with me in this darkness.” Now that only happened [Kathie: A couple months ago] encouraged me, the Lord knew where I was at. Look folks this is not a cake-walk, this will check out your heart and soul, but I believed the gospel. But let me tell you what kept me going: Jesus got his eyesight back and Paul got his back, in the book of Galatians. I said, “Ok, Jesus preached the gospel, Paul preached the gospel, I preach the gospel, I’m going to see. And then very shortly after that I started talking, no, not true, I’ve talked that way a long time, I believed that way, I didn’t talk that way, I couldn’t talk much.

But a few months back, a couple, I think it was November, that’s not but two, I saw a big angel, ten days later I saw another big angel. Well I guess it might not have been earlier than that, but you know what on the third of November, God gave me a night vision that Kathie D was the mother of John D, a son coming out of my loins. I had a night vision, God told me, I’m glad it was a night vision, let me tell you I am, it was the first one I ever had. There wasn’t anything to go astray on it. I remember in that night vision, I’m asleep, and the Lord said “Kathie is the mother of John”, I said, “Ok”. He said it again, “Kathie is the mother of John.” I said, “Ok, ok, that’s good.” Now that’s Doyle Davidson, most of the time. Next morning I told KD about it, Kathie, and that afternoon I was setting with her at the table in the kitchen, talking and all of a sudden here stands an image of Kathie and here’s an image of Doyle and here’s Doyle looking at them. That [was]freaky, and as I sat there and Kathie is somewhere across the table, right? [Kathie: right] as I set there, I thought, “Well that makes sense, she’s a Mayflower descendant and I’m a Rhode Island Founder descendant. But a few days back, well it was Saturday, I was talking, right? Or did you read, 142, to me.

[Kathie: I think it was Thursday we were setting on the bed and I read it to you.]

Right, but then Saturday, something happened.

[Kathie: You spoke it, you started talking about it on the set]

Oh, that’s it, right.

[Kathie: And you started getting excited about the righteous being around you.

Oh, did I ever. Look that was Thursday, the righteous. But Saturday, it came about the righteous compassing me and they reign and rule through the gift of righteousness and I believe the Saturday meeting was when I said this going to take place in Plano,

Kathie; Yes, it was that morning you started talking about it.

Yes, in Plano, Oh, I’m going to get to drive again. Well, when you have driven as many years and many miles as I’ve driven, driving is a big deal to you. I used to drive sixty-five thousand miles a year. Thank God, and then more. But I got excited. Compass me with the righteous. Then Kathie read to me the 5th chapter verse 17 of the book of Romans, right? [Kathie: Right] Would you like read that now? [Kathie: Sure will] We had some help from the audience, Terre Brown found it for me.

Kathie: Ok, Romans 5:17:

17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

The gift of righteousness. Yesterday I spoke very cautiously about the gift of righteousness, well today it’s not cautious. I can tell my spirit its ok the Lord saying, “You’re ok, go on.” First, to get the gift of righteousness you’ve got to be born again. You’ve got to be saved, same thing.

Kathie: Which means you have to have Jesus in you.

Jesus in your heart. Right. But I want to back up, that verse “compassed by the righteous” and “God shall deal bountifully with me,” oh, both of them, now I’m excited. I know I’m going to see, I’m going to be ministering among the righteous to the world, I’m going to be dealt bountifully, by God, that I see Haggai 2,

the glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former house. The latter, the body of Christ, the former, Solomon, his temple, Thank God, I got as excited as I can get. I want to tell you something, what’s in me right now is not excitement nor any direct things, or specific things, but the joy of the Lord.

Alright now, first you’ve got to be saved, born again; second, you have to have all your sins forgiven. Oh yes, and purged by the blood of Jesus and redeemed by the blood of Jesus, justified by the blood of Jesus, Acts 26, you’re going to have to have your eyes opened first, second you’re going to have to be turned from darkness to light, third you’re going to have to be turned from the power of Satan unto God, next receive forgiveness of your sins, what’s left, next ministered the inheritance among the sanctified ones, that is brought forth by the faith of Jesus Christ that is in me that the Lord has put there, that I’ve experienced and walked in all these years and then the gift of righteousness will be imparted to your heart and you can reign and rule in this life through Christ Jesus.

You see, Ephesians 4 says that you’re going to have to have an apostle, a prophet, a teacher, a pastor and an evangelist that minister those ministries to perfect the saints for the work of the ministry to edify the body of Christ, build it up. That’s where I’m at, others are coming.

There’s no other name under heaven whereby one must be saved, just one, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Just one, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, to be born again or saved or one with Jesus and the Lord has already put faith and grace in your heart to be saved, born again, say it after to me and be saved, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…
