God Never Sent Anyone to Get People Saved

Doyle Davidson:

I must tell you a testimony that took place in Plano, Texas at a Full Gospel Businessmen’s meeting here in Plano. Now the president of Full Gospel chapter here in Plano, he wasn’t just sure about me, in fact he was sure he didn’t like for me to talk. So God would send me, and one Saturday night I came here to Full Gospel and I said, “The Lord has something to say tonight.

“What is it?”

“I’ll tell you when I get up there.” Oh, that’s not a good way to have friends, but the Lord wanted me to talk. The Lord told me once, “You don’t have to ask anybody to talk when I tell you to get up,” but I was a person that tried to be courteous; not saying God’s not, he’s God.

So, the guy finally said, “I’m going to let you get up there.” I had been walking in my yard before I came, and the Lord said to me these words, he really shocked me. (Now this was in the nineties.) He said, “I never sent anyone to get people saved.” That’s tricky. But the Lord knew this apostle, he knew that the Lord sent everyone to preach the gospel, not get you saved. Now this touches the heart of religion. Oh, it does, it cuts right through religious spirits.

So, I got up to speak, I didn’t have much to say. There was a lawyer from St. Mary’s College here in Texas and his wife, setting to my left on the front row, on the outer passageway, (Navy talk) and I was sitting on the middle aisle, and when I got up to talk, I shared that very thing, “God said to tell you that he never sent anybody to get someone saved.”

“Why Doyle, many people get saved because we ask them if they’d like to be saved.” Well I’ve done the same but God didn’t send us to get you saved, he sent us to preach the gospel and you believe the gospel and you’ll be saved and so I said that and this woman, this lawyer’s wife was so excited she threw up her hands, “Oh my!” and she had her eyes set on these scriptures:

2 Peter 2:

1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

That’s it, damnable heresies, false prophets.

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

That’s a shame, covetousness, they make merchandise of you. Listen, I’m not afraid to obey God’s word nor his Spirit. My goodness Lord.

When I first got in the charismatic movement in 1970, (I was thinking about this, this morning about 4:00 AM) when in 1960 God told a man he was going to pour his Spirit out in America and that’s when the Charismatic movement started. I entered the Charismatic movement in 1970 as a prophet and didn’t know it, but God would have me say things that would just amaze people; they were afraid that I was a false prophet and they would get up and talk about it. I was afraid of it too, but I was afraid not to obey God.

Once I told a man, “The same Spirit I speak by is the one that told me to sell my veterinary practice and sell my veterinary hospital and obey the Father, obey God.” And that came to pass and I haven’t been afraid to speak by this Spirit since because I laid down a gold mine, obeying God. Once I told a man that if God didn’t tell me a certain thing, that he didn’t anoint me to preach the gospel at the Tomb of the Garden in Jerusalem, June 16, 1974.

KD you’re going to have to read Mark 1:

14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

In 1980 I preached this same chapter in this building, I’d say turn to Mark chapter 1, and for many, many times, people would come in here and I’d say, turn to Mark chapter 1 and they’d look at me like, “Is that all you know?”

Once a man told me, “You know it’s been twenty years since I’ve been here and you’re still preaching the same thing you were preaching twenty years ago?”

“Yes, and I’m told to preach it till Jesus comes.”

Matthew 24:

1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

See I didn’t tell that guy wrong, I said, “If I’m here I’m going to be preaching this when Jesus comes and that’s the end.”

I’m happy that I’ve obeyed God forty-six years. Did you know I take no credit for that? He scared me.

Exodus 23:

20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee,

Whoa. Now I’m a veterinarian, I get paid for treating some very nice horses, very expensive horses and I get paid well. That’s what I am, a veterinarian, I’m not a preacher. I thought it strange that God would send a veterinarian to Plano to “speak to the people of Plano.”

“Well, what do I say?”

“Read Acts where Paul and Barnabas were at Antioch and you’ll understand.” I did, Acts 11 and Acts 13 and it said there were prophets and teachers at Antioch, five of them and here I am and God is saying, “You’re a prophet.” I didn’t want to be a prophet, I thought they lost their heads. Listen this is dangerous territory.

The end will be here with the gospel.

So, in 1972, God sent me back to Texas, I’d sold my hospital, my practice and left Texas, went to Missouri—went to Tennessee and worked the horse show in the summertime. I knew a lot of people with horses and I could go to certain shows, they’d say “Oh Doc glad you’re here, I’ve got something I want you to do.” That’s why I went there. Well, you don’t think I went there just to see a horse show, do you? I’m just honest, I went there to make some money AND see a horse show. I had box seats, that how I paid for them, treating rich people’s horses.

But God, in 1972 the month of May, said “Get up and go to Texas,” and he told me where to go. I met an international bible teacher the night before I was leaving.

“Well how are you?” he asked.

“I’m fine.”

“How’s everything going?”

“Going well, I’m getting ready to go back to Texas.”

“I thought that’s just where you came from, uh uh, I guess if you’re supposed to go you better go.”

“I thought so.”

I got up and I started back to Texas the next morning. I lived ten weeks in the Holiday Inn, God teaching me the Book of Romans, primarily the first five chapters. I tell you I thought I was a prisoner of the Lord and I even said so. You’re going to learn Romans before you go very far. But then I get a house and 6.5 acres in Argyle. The Lord taught me these verses in Exodus chapter 23 from verse 20, forward. Now this scared this veterinarian, I even wondered if I was becoming a preacher. You don’t know what this man has walked through to get here and everybody thought I was a rebel and said so. One major bible teacher/preacher, Dallas-Ft.Worth said I was the biggest rebel in Dallas. Well I was in Plano and he couldn’t tell the difference.

So, listen to this, if this would scare you, it scared this man, it scared him enough that “If this is God talking to you and it sounds like the one that told you to sell your hospital.” Oh saints, I walked in fear and trembling. I had a sister and brother-in-law drove over 300 miles to tell me, “The devil is stealing your practice, don’t let him do this to you.”

“This is God. God told me to do this!”

You know right now I’m under a commandment, “Don’t compromise your words,” and I was under it then too, and I’ve been under it all these years. I’m overcoming some fear in my soul and I know it. I have to speak tough, uncompromising words to man; I’m commanded to do so by the Father and here is what helps keep me on course:

Exodus 23:

20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

25 And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Do you know these words were spoken to Moses? I had an opportunity to think, “This couldn’t be to me, this is old testament,” but I knew the voice of the Father and I knew the voice of the Son. He said, “I’ll take sickness away from your midst.” I thought, “That’s a good one,” but he said” I’ll be an adversary to your adversary.” I thought, that’s a good one too. “I’ll be an enemy to your enemy.” I said, “I’ve got plenty of them.” You don’t know folks, where this man came from, only God does, but if you think these passages didn’t have an effect on me, you’re mistaken. The one that got me, “He won’t forgive your transgressions.” People wondered why I obeyed the Father; because he gave me some scripture that would tell you, “You better not disobey him.”

Well what if it wasn’t God?”

“Well what if it was?” You see, I look at things different than you do. Well it turned out to be God.

Kathie: So with these verses God told you, basically, no more messing around; he didn’t give you much of a rope did he?”

I used to say, “God didn’t give me any slack.” He won’t give you any either; you may get some slack for a while, but the day will come when God’s slack isn’t slack, he’s just being real merciful to you.

You know I’m walking now where the Lord said, “The time has come for you to stand before the strong.”

March 2, 2017:

“Be strong in the Lord and the power of his might and do not compromise your words for the time has come for you to stand before the strong, saith the Lord.”
