Merciful, Gracious, Longsuffering and Abundant in Goodness and Truth

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, sent by God to your house to declare unto you the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:3 and 4 tell us what the gospel is, how that Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, that he was buried, that 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, recovering 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 will 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, it is the power of God unto salvation, to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith, as it is written, the just shall live by his faith.

Want to welcome everyone receiving this broadcast… Kathie D is my co-host seated at my left, I want to ask her to open by reading words of instruction from 1 Corinthians 14:26 – 33, how to conduct a Christian meeting.

1 Corinthians 14:

26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.
31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.
32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

I would like this program to open with the Mai Girls, “To Him Who Sits On The Throne” followed by Terry Mai and Water of Life Boys:

“I Am”
 “There Stood A Lamb”

Is the sound in the room at a good level, if not get it where it needs to be, I want everybody to hear this message, I don’t want anybody going to sleep. Alright?! The song that’s coming up I heard sung 80 years ago, at Redwood Church, without a doubt, “The Old Rugged Cross”. I never would have dreamed that God would give Terre Brown this song and have her sing it, but she’s singing it at one of the most important meetings you will ever attend in your whole life.

I grew up in John Wesley Methodist Holiness Teaching. I was taught and they taught: what the bible said is literal, just like it’s written. They had dictionaries, they had concordances, they even had people’s commentaries. But I could read, I was a good reader, I read a lot of books; I spent six years at the University of Missouri, a veterinarian; I took hard tests, very difficult tests, most of them we called quizzes. So I wasn’t challenged much by an intellect. I was determined when I got in the charismatic movement, to not be deceived. I could read as well as the next one, I wasn’t afraid to trust in what I believed or in how I saw things. In 1970, I got in the Charismatic movement—amazing. I couldn’t believe the various opinions [that] various intellects taught. It amazed me. I’d think, “That doesn’t say that, that doesn’t say that at all. Where did you come up with that?” No, I didn’t stand up and challenge a one of them. They didn’t bother me but I didn’t believe them. I was raised that you need to be born again, be saved. I was also raised that you should keep the Ten Commandments. That’s impossible, that’s impossible. I struggled on every corner with every wind and doctrine, no one could walk in the gospel and keep the Ten Commandments, no one. But I had all kinds of academia putting forth what they believed. I was stunned at how dishonest they were—dishonest.

The Lord knew I gave up my whole life to serve him and he knew I wasn’t afraid to challenge, not a person, I didn’t care—if you were foolish enough to twist things I was not going to be fool enough to try to straighten you out. Understand I was forty-two years old, been in the Navy, a lot of education, (I guess I was thirty-eight years old).

So, I would listen, follow along. I’d take notes, I don’t recommend you take notes but I took them. What amazed me, after I got through with the notes and started looking at them after the meeting, I thought, “What did the guy talk about?” “What did the woman talk about?” You couldn’t tell. I’d read two or three notes worth keeping. I was disturbed and God knew it. God knew that I could be outspoken if I’d have enough. It took a lot. You were not going to smother me with deceit. God led me to the book of Exodus. I took the bible on page one to last page. I was surprise what it said. I had read the bible through three or four times. I was surprised at what I read. I had a good memory, not good enough, not like the Lord.

I was shocked to read the book of Ezekiel that the statutes of the Lord were contrary to his people. I was amazed that they were contrary, they were not supposed to benefit them. I was surprised to read in the book of Galatians that the bible, the New Testament was given because of transgressions. I knew, yes, I knew, that the Jewish people couldn’t keep one commandment, I didn’t want to say it, I didn’t want to insult them; they couldn’t keep one commandment. I thought, “How could this bible benefit you?” These people can’t even keep one commandment. And you say, “What commandment is that?” It goes something like this, “Remember the sabbath and keep it holy.” KD, is that one of the Ten Commandments?

Kathie: Yes.

Doyle: It is? Did not Moses send people out to obey, remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy and they couldn’t? Is that correct?

Kathie: The first thing that they transgressed was he said, “Don’t keep the manna overnight.” and they did. And he got very angry.

Doyle: Who did?

Kathie: Moses.

Doyle, Oh yes. They reminded me of people that were my clients. Really. I would tell them things to give their horses, I did cattle, small animals some, but primarily horses. I’d give them medicine, bottles of it, of course they’d pay me, I’d walk through their stable months later, you see I had a label put on my medicine bottles and it had a horse on it and my name, and I’d walk through that stable and there would be that bottle, with my horse and my name [on the label], full. I’d think, hmm, that horse, it was probably right. I would tell you, don’t give a horse something that would keep him or her from getting well. A veterinarian, more than one, said to me, “I have never seen anyone in my life use such few drugs as you.”

I’d say, “I don’t know how to give anymore.”

“What do you mean?”

“Well I don’t; I give what I know is right and I do not give them something that don’t think, at least, is right.”

One day God, Jehovah, “Doyle”—he called me Doyle, not son, put me in the 20th chapter of Exodus, “Study this.”

Exodus 20:

1 And God spake all these words, saying,

2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill.

14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 Thou shalt not steal.

16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.

19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.

21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.

22 And the Lord said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

23 Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold.

24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee.

Let’s do brief summaries of the chapters:

Kathie: [Chapter] 21: He continues with laws.

Chapter 22: Divers laws and ordinances, of theft, of damage, of trespassing, of borrowing, etc.

Chapter 23: More ordinances, of slander, justice, the Sabbath day, and 23 was the angel that would guide them, it says, “For my angel would go before thee…”

Chapter 24: When the people promised obedience and God’s glory appeareth.

Chapter 25: The offerings for the tabernacle, the form of the Ark, etc., and then the table with the furniture, the candlestick…

Chapter 26:  The curtains and the boards of the tabernacle.

Chapter 27: The veil for the Ark, the altar, a burnt offering, the court of the tabernacle…

Chapter 28: The priests’ office, the ephod, the breastplate with the precious stones, the priestly garments…

Chapter 29: The sacrifices and the rites of consecrating the priests and continued with sacrificing and the rites of consecrating the priests…

Chapter 30: The altar of incense and the ransom of souls, they had to give money for each soul, the holy anointing oil, and then the perfume…

Chapter 31: The two men that God gave to them that had knowledge, that had understanding and had all manner of workmanship, these helped build the tabernacle and the sabbath being kept.

Chapter 32: Moses disappeared for days and Aaron built the ox.

Doyle: Whoa! Moses is out of sight, with God [Kathie: Right] and Aaron build a golden calf.

Kathie: Right, the people ask Aaron to build them a calf.

Doyle: The idol, what did God say?

Exodus 32:

7 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

9 And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

11 And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.

13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

14 And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

Can you believe that Aaron would consent to build an idol? Idolatry is the biggest problem a human heart has. You might as well write it down, idolatry will idolize anything. I was riding my bike once and saw a guy worshipping a stump. That was beyond me. I know I’m capable, but a stump? Amazing.

So, God gets Moses, brings him back after the stones are broken, he wants to talk to him. God wanted to talk to Doyle Davidson. He said, “Get up here, I’m talking to Moses and I’m talking to you.” The Father, Jehovah, said, “Doyle I am going to show you how I am, I’m going to show you how I am.”

I thought, “Well I thought all these chapters were the way you were.”

Oh no. That’s not the way God is at all. “Those were given for transgressions.”

Exodus 34:

1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.

2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.

3 And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.

4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.

5 And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord.

6 And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

Doyle: Stunning. The Father said, “Doyle, this is the way I am, merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth.”

“That’s your personality? That’s all you stand for? Merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth! Father this is you? It’s not the one I’ve met in church. Merciful, gracious, longsuffering, (that means can get angry but takes a long time, look it up.) abundance in goodness and truth. And this is you, Father? And this is Jesus? This is the way you all are, the two of you? You’re merciful and gracious and longsuffering, you’re abundant in goodness and truth?”

“Yes Doyle, don’t to forget to look at the third one.”

Merciful, gracious, longsuffering—oh, we overlook that one. He can get hot and when he gets hot, you’ll regret it. Don’t ever kid yourself, he can get angry. It takes him a long time, but when he does, you don’t have a chance but repent or pay the toll.

Merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundant in goodness and in truth.

You see, I’m going to write these words in your heart and hope your heart’s not stone. Here’s the way the Father and Jesus are: merciful, gracious, longsuffering (I think that word means, long dumas), but it gets hot, abundance in goodness and in truth. You can read all the rest of it, all of it, but my friends, those words describe the Father’s and the Son’s personality. You just need to get a revelation of it. Yesterday, a tough day, hard, today a hard day. I’ve been praying for grace, grace, mercy, grace, mercy, grace, mercy, grace and mercy and love, and peace.

Yesterday it seemed everything was hard, I said, Father, here’s what you taught me in Argyle.”

You say, “Do you get that angry?”

Yes I do. I’m not angry at God and I am angry at the devil and myself.

Argyle you said, ‘Doyle, this is the way I am, merciful.”


“Ya, merciful.”

I’ll remember that one.


Oh, I’ll remember that one.


Oh, I know you’re full of mercy so we don’t need to bother about longsuffering. Ya, your brain has gone to seed. He means what he says. Abundant in goodness and in truth. Just full of it. Mercy to a thousand generations. You know some person that I used to teach, started teaching, you don’t pay any attention to that, it’s just Jesus.

That IS Jesus, silly, merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth.

Yesterday I was just beside myself. I can get that way you know. And I was praying, “Lord, you told me in Argyle, these words, you told me these words are like you, merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth. That’s what you told me you were like and I don’t overlook the longsuffering. Let me tell you, Terry Mai wrote a song, “I Proclaim The Name Of The Lord.” I’ve got this in my heart, it’s in my heart. I started breaking through, my heart was being torn with mercy, gracious, longsuffering, abundance of good and truth. Things started coming up, thank God. Things improved. This afternoon, the same. Merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth.

Tell him all of them, tell him all of them. Get them in your heart, speak them to him, to the Father, to the Son. Oh, they love it. You know why? Because all those five things are working in you while you’re talking. Merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth, that’s the Father and the Son. Do you have anything to say?

Kathie: Just that, this afternoon at the dinner table. When you came home it was very, very heavy and we were praying in the office for a while and we went into the kitchen and you started doing that and you didn’t do it softly. And I was laughing, I was getting dinner ready and I heard, “You hear what you said?” And it lifted; all that heaviness went away.

Doyle: Who was talking?

Kathie: You were.

Doyle: To who?

Kathie: To God.

Doyle: Yah! God you know that? Do you know you said that? Jesus you know you said all these things? Do that which thou has spoken.

My prayers, short, concise, to the point. You like to talk, I don’t. Merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth. Father, did you hear that? Do you remember that? You said that, now do it. Now do it. Do all five of them.

“I would be afraid to tell him, to get angry.”

I’m not. Notice, I got mercy on the front row.

Kathie: And longsuffering does mean slow to anger.

Doyle: Oh how great it is to talk to Jehovah and to Jesus and how frightening it is for them to talk back. Oh ya, they don’t say, “That’s alright darling.” Oh, mercy, gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth. Do as thou hast said, do as thou hast said. Do as thou hast spoken. Do it, do it, do it, do it. I won’t shut up. Well I finally will. I’ve never had him say, “Be still.”

Listen folks, those prayers, what I just prayed, those words speaking to the Father and Jesus from the heart, with faith, by the Spirit of God, if you think they won’t take care of a multitude of sins, you are wrong.

Kathie: You know for those who say, “How can you do that, and yell back to God?” you know Moses said the same thing in Numbers 14 when God was getting ready to wipe them out again and Moses said, “Let me remind you, you are merciful, what you told me, you are merciful and gracious and longsuffering,” so he’s doing the same thing you did and he got the same results.

Well I’m not going to talk about saved, I’m going to teach you, take these words, say them, speak them, make them your sermon; give that sermon to Jesus, that sermon to God since you like to preach. Glory! Ya, preach to them.

We will give you a chance to be saved, speak Jesus and be saved. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus….

God bless,
Doyle Davidson
Servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ
