Ruling and Reigning Through the Gift of Righteousness in Plano

Transcribed from:
Monday Jan. 2, 2017 11:00 AM Livestream Program

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 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’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 receiving this on livestream Roku, AppleTV, YouTube and other devices.

Kathie Davidson, my co-host, good morning. [Kathie: Good morning] And are you ready? [Kathie: Yes I am] Well, I am too, but we need to have a couple songs, recorded by Terry Mai and Water of Life Boys. By the way, Terry Mai went to heaven in 2009, but he left me his songs. And after that we’ll have Terre Brown, we’ll introduce her and then we’ll have Ezekiel 36 and then we’ll proceed.

“Only The Redeemed”
 “I Saw The Lord”

Praise God. Terre Brown is coming to do a song but first let’s have Kathie read Ezekiel 36, three verses:

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.

I believe Hebrews 10 talks about washed with the water of the word, that water is the gospel, it’s got power and along with it the blood of Jesus works. God has been working in my heart since 1970, he’s done a lot of changes in it, still working. He’s worked in Kathie D’s heart, she arrived here in 1984 and she heard the gospel. God had told her he was sending her to a place where she could be taught?

Kathie: Where I would learn how to follow him.

How to follow the Lord. Terre Brown came here in 1985 and she heard the gospel by the power of God, the gospel, the kingdom, the first time she had ever heard it preached by the kingdom. Today she’s going to do a song, “Who Am I?”

In 1972 about October, maybe September, a man was riding with a preacher in his car. That preacher was the pastor of Argyle United Methodist Church and he was counseling this guy and the guy took his hand and hit the preacher’s dash and broke it; it was a Chevette. He takes this guy to his wife and said, “Take this man to this veterinarian over here, he thinks he can do anything.” I don’t know where he got that idea, but this man came and his name was Butch and he did have a temper, he did have some devils and I worked with him—see him many times in a week. Wake up in the morning at 8:00, he and his wife would be sitting on the back porch waiting to talk to us. Once I spent all day with them and they go home and she gets upset at him and throws a skillet at him. That’s the way Doyle Davidson Ministries got launched. You never heard all that have you? You probably have. [Kathie: Ya]

Well, thank God, just a few days after that I started a bible study in my home preaching the gospel and I’ve been preaching it ever since. On the 31st of December, 2016 God blessed me in a tremendous way. I think I want you to read Psalm 142. [Kathie: I sure will] I think I’ve got this in perspective.

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.

I’d asked KD to read that Psalm to me where it talks about “…when his spirit was overwhelmed in him, the Lord knew his path…” and she read it to me, but she read on, I asked her to and when she finished I said, “What does that say?” Compassed by the righteous? And God shall deal bountifully with me? That was the most encouraging thing I had heard in eight years. Do we have that about right? Yes it says, “The righteous shall compass me about for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.”

Do you remember what day you read that to me? [Kathie: It might have been the 31st] No. [Kathie: the 30th?] One more. [Kathie: 29th?] Wasn’t it on Thursday? [Kathie: I don’t remember] I think it was on Thursday and Saturday was the 31st. [Kathie: Right.] You read it that day [Saturday], re-read it, but you had read it before. But then the Lord did something that just lit my heart up. Romans 5:17, would you read it? [Kathie: Sure will]

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.)

My heart was just full of power when that verse came to me. I didn’t know where it was at, but righteousness, when the Lord speaks, you better listen, you better hear what he’s saying, he said, “he was going to compass me about with righteous people and deal bountifully with me through the gift of righteousness.” Oh, I haven’t settle down since. I said on that program, we can prove what day it was, on Thursday or Friday, I’m sure it will be posted very shortly what day it was. I was beside myself and I said, “God was going to have the righteous in Plano—Plano, Texas, they are going to surround me, be about me.”

Kathie: Wasn’t it the NIV that said they would gather around me? “…the righteous would gather around me.”

“About,” wasn’t it? [Kathie: ya, about] I think that’s what you told me. [Kathie: right]

I tell you folks, you can’t stop me; I’ve been in Plano, since 1980, arrived here in August and spoke on Sunday at Faith Temple, which later became a part of Water of Life Church of Plano, Inc. All their assets were given to Seed of Abraham Ministries, also Water of Life Church of Plano, Inc. that was November 24th. We moved into this building the 4th day of January 1981. I had been working a couple months, three or four, trying to buy this property and we moved in the 4th day of January. Man, righteous compass about me, about KD, about Terre, about all of you. Gift of righteousness—free gift, free gift of righteousness.

I recall when I was trying to understand the difference in justification and righteousness, your gonna hear about my studies. Well, they are very similar, but you know what? Justification is by the gospel, the blood of Jesus. Did you know righteousness is a gift? It’s very close to justification, but it’s a gift. A gift! One day I was going to Louisville, Texas to treat a horse. For those of you that don’t know it, I used to be a veterinarian in north Texas and I had got a hold of righteousness and I said 500 times, driving to Louisville, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus,” I sowed that word in my heart, it had to help. I don’t recommend it but God’s leads you.

Folks, I’ve taught for years in this city, the glory of the latter house, shall be greater than the former house, from the first time I arrived here in August of 1980 in this city. Spoke in a school over here, I think it’s a school. That you find where, in Haggai? [Kathie: Shall I go there?] Let’s read it. [Kathie: That means I have to find Haggai]

Look, I’m causing you to hang loose, God is. This man is excited. But It talks about the glory of the latter house will be greater than the former, the former was Solomon’s. This one, the Lord Jesus’.

Haggai 2:

8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.

9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.

Is that something? [Kathie: Ya] And the Lord said to me and you, all of us, we would reign through the gift of righteousness in Plano—Plano, Texas.

Kathie: Amen. And we already do. I know we do.

Tell them about it. Kathie: Ya, that’s why Plano is so blessed. In one magazine [it says] it’s the number one city to live in, in Texas, the number three city in the United States and in another magazine, it’s the seventh city to live in, in the United States, best city to live in, in the United States. We have the least amount of crime in the state of Texas, the list goes on and on and on, about the accolades of the neighborhoods in the Dallas-Fort Worth area; the neighborhood we live in is one of the safest and quiet in Dallas and Fort Worth area, like I said, there are accolades and accolades about this city, in just the last year.

You know Proverbs 14 say, “righteousness exalts a nation, sins a reproach to any people.” We preach the gospel with the righteousness of God revealed. We’ve been doing it since 1980 in this city.

Kathie: And this city went from being not recognized at all the where it is recognized now and it’s also one of the best places for employment. [Doyle: Right] And it’s because of the righteousness of the gospel.

Righteousness exalteth a nation. That’s why Plano is where it’s at—is the gospel that’s been preached in this city since 1980.

Proverbs 14:

34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

And Romans 1:16 “righteousness is revealed in the gospel” Look folks, you can preach the word, that’s not the gospel. The gospel is “how that Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the scripture, he was buried and he rose again the third day, according to the scripture,” 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4, I just quoted 3 and 4.

Kathie: You know like you said earlier, the justification and the righteousness, justification, you can’t do justification [Doyle: No] it’s like you said, by faith, but I remember one of the first verses you taught me about righteousness, he that doeth righteousness, is righteous. [Doyle: Right] So righteousness is something you do.

I think I’m safe, been a long time since I taught all this, but justification is through the gospel and the blood of Jesus, right? [Kathie: Right] Righteousness is a free gift. [Kathie: But it comes through the gospel] Oh yes.

Kathie: But it’s something...he that doeth righteousness is righteous and when we walk in that gospel we are doing righteousness. [Doyle: Right]

I’m helping myself, how about you? [Kathie: Yes]

Let’s look at the fourth chapter of Romans, no let’s start with 3:21 and 22:

21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Is that wild? [Kathie: Yes] Would you back up to 19 and 20 and see what they are?

19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Is that hard to understand? No. Did you know those verses of scripture were verses that I was taught in 1972 in Argyle? [Kathie: Amen.] Without the law, without the law. [Kathie: Amen.] Without—do you know what without means? [Kathie: Yes]

You know it says, in Romans…10, “Christ is the end of the law for righteousness sake to everyone that believeth” and I used to say, if you don’t know what the end is, slide off your chair. [Kathie: Right] Oh, I’m having fun.

Kathie: I tell you what, it helped me, Romans 6 when it says, don’t yield your members to unrighteousness which is sin, but yield your member to righteousness, so it kind of gives you a, this is that, when you’re yielding your members, your mouth, our arms, your thoughts, all that to what leads to sin, that’s not righteousness; but when you yield your mouth, your heart, your arms, your legs, whatever to the gospel, that’s righteousness.

Thank God, preach on. I was talking to somebody recently about belief and unbelief and believing the gospel. You believe the gospel, walk in the gospel, trust in the gospel, and guess what? It will keep you from sinning. But, I told this person, you don’t have to sin, you don’t have to sin. You’re not going to be victorious, but you can look at a whatever that you lust after, but you don’t have to partake of it.

Kathie: That would be not yielding your members to sin.

That’s what I’m talking about. [Kathie: Right]

Kathie: I think it’s 1 John it says if the seed is in you, the seed of Jesus, you can’t sin. (1 John 3:9). [Doyle: Right] You get to a point, you can’t sin, you cannot sin.

Oh, that’s right. And he dwells there by faith.

Kathie: Right, and when you walk in the Spirit, we know how that feels when the Spirit says, “Whoa, stop! Go this way, don’t go that way.”

Right, exactly. Now, let’s don’t lose this. I’m excited. Plano, Texas a group of people and we’re already here, it’ll enlarge, reign and rule through the gift of righteousness in Plano. For certain, absolute fact I’ve been doing this for years, that’s how I reign. Others reign with me, they’re partakers of my faith and my free gift of righteousness. Folks you don’t know what God has promised this servant for obeying him forty-six years in Texas, and other places, the world.

Let’s read the Romans 4:

1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?

2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.

3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,

7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.

10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.

11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:

15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.

16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb:

20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;

24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

Amen. You know in 1980 I chartered my first charter and I believe the Lord gave me the name, “Seed of Abraham Ministries;” this ministry today is still “Seed of Abraham Ministry”, also “Water of Life Church of Plano, Inc.”, also, “Doyle Davidson Ministries.”

That 4th chapter, I went over that in Argyle, that was the most amazing thing to me.

Kathie: I tell you what, I spent probably a week in Frisco, sitting outside, I’d go outside a lot, and read over and over this chapter, burned a whole in my heart. I would read it and just, all I can say is, bend over, because of the power of God breaking up the law, getting it out of me to where I could see Abraham walked by faith.

Abraham was fully persuaded, right? [Kathie: Right] that what God had promised [Kathie: he was able to perform]

Did you know, I had no idea when I arrived in Plano, of course I lived just ten miles north, but in 1980, I had no idea what was going to happen here, not one idea. I certainly didn’t know that I was going to lose my eye sight, in 2009 it started. By 2013 I could see nothing. It took me a lot of discipline, the Lord’s grace working in me, it’s not been me. It’s grace, the grace of God working, that has kept me together, to continue for these eight years and not see.

Kathie: You know that’s what Paul worked in when he said, I labor more than you all, yet not I but Christ worketh in me.

1 Corinthians 15, that’s where the gospel is preached. I just thank God for his mercy, graciousness, longsuffering, abundant in goodness and truth to me during these eight years. You say, “Well Doyle you can’t see now.” Ha, ha! You watch me. I’ve got a promise now that I had not seen. Oh, compassed with the righteous, reign through the gift of righteousness?! Do you think you’re going to reign and be blind? Where you from? Don’t stir me up. And God shall be bountiful to me. [Kathie: Amen, yes]

Oh, my goodness!

Kathie: He shall deal bountifully with me.

Oh yes, deal bountifully with me [Kathie: Amen] Do you guess you’d be able to see?

Kathie: That word bountifully means nice, yes.

Oh, folks, I didn’t know during those eight years what Psalm 142 said, it was just opened up to me last week.

Let’s read Romans 6:

15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

I tell you it’s been a long time since I studied this, a long time since I taught this, but I’m going to trust the Lord and I’m going to say something: righteousness is a free gift, FREE, FREE. It has nothing, there are no attachments to receiving it, it’s free. Do you follow me? [Kathie: I follow you.] But do you know what? It’s imputed because you believe.

Oh listen, I studied this, I prayed about this, I meditated on this, I thought it’s too good to be made righteous freely. A free gift. The nature of God. Lord you know I’m trusting you every word.

Kathie; Wasn’t righteousness, forgive me, but I remember your four blood tapes, [Doyle: My what?] Your four tapes on the blood of Jesus. It was justification, sanctification, redemption, and wasn’t righteousness one of them?

Well righteousness would have been in there. I don’t remember though.

Kathie: Yes, righteousness was one of them.

What was the other one?

That’s four, justification, sanctification, redemption and righteousness.

There you go. Thank you girls.

Kathie: Pretty good for someone who can’t remember anything.

Oh, has God been merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundance of goodness and truth to this house? [Kathie: Amen] You know, the Lord taught me that in Argyle? God the Father, Moses declared that, that’s Jehovah’s nature.

Righteousness I can’t say enough about. Free! Oh, you go through forgiveness, redemption, justification, I think sanctification—I feel comfortable, I trust what’s in here, right down here, not what’s up here—and then, free gift of righteousness. Righteous, righteous, free gift. We don’t deserve it folks, we can’t pay for it, you can’t talk right to receive it. They’re going to be hearing more on righteousness than Plano’s heard in several years, and the world.

And I’ll tell you when I knew that I’d receive the free gift of righteousness I was so humbled it was unreal. Thank God. That’s how I reign, that’s how you’ll reign—and Plano, the people that their righteousness is of God will continue to grow in number in Plano and the world. We preach it, we walk it, we’ve got the faith for it. All of this is given to us by the Lord. He paid it all.

No other name under heaven, just one, Jesus Christ of Nazareth whereby one must be saved, born again, one with the Lord, thank God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. You have the grace, you have the faith to be saved, born again, one with the Lord, speak it after me, the name Jesus and be saved—Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…

God bless.
