My Sufferings for the Church

Transcribed and edited excerpt from:
Sunday November 26, 2017 10:00 AM Livestream Program

God sent Kathie D to me in 2009, she had been here (WOL) since 1984. Her and I had few conversations; we exchanged few words until the last Sunday of June 2008. God started talking about me and my ancestors; [they]came here so I could preach the gospel. Kathie showed up [afterwards] and started talking to me and I thought, “ I don’t even know what you’re talking about.” This woman is a prophetess. God sent Nathan to David, he sent Kathie D to Doyle as a prophetess. Believe me I have had prophets around me, they didn’t profit me much. This one got me off the floor on a Saturday night in April 2015. But that’s what not what we’re going to talk about. She brought new things to me that I had never seen in the bible, but God chose her to do that. One of them was Colossians 1:

1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,

2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

4 Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,

5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

7 As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;

8 Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

Can you believe that? You know, I know I am an apostle of the Lord. I know he sent me to the four corners of the earth but I tell you, before he did he had to have this prophetess minister Colossians 1 to me. You see, until God opens your eyes, you’re not going to get it, it doesn’t matter who you are, you’re not going to get it. You can see it, you can read it, you can talk about it, but until God opens your eyes you’re not going to see it.

Folks, that chapter, part of it was real difficult for me to believe. I want to tell you something, unbelief is pride, pride is unbelief. I would have never guessed, I would have never dreamed, I would have never read, I could have never seen with my eyes, what God had prepared for me. I wouldn’t have believed the Lord would have done to me, or let happen to me what has happened. I would have thought it would be pride to talk about it, but friends, it’s humility to accept what God has done with you. It’s not easy to believe that God would allow sins of his people to be laid upon me. It wasn’t easy, very difficult, but you know v. 24,

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:

I have suffered greatly in the flesh for you. Is that right?

Kathie: Yes, that’s right, in fact in the next verse it says Paul was given for that very purpose:

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God (that means he got a job he didn’t ask for) which is given to me for you…

That was the very reason God sent Paul.

Doyle: I’m barely believing this stuff, but when you’ve walked as I have walked for the past [soon to be] nine years, and learned all the sin that has been laid upon my soul by God’s people, that through my afflictions, you are honored. That’s Ephesians 3:13

Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory (honor).

It’s not been easy to accept this. It’s not been easy to know that sins of people that were married to your soul, my soul, and they were alive in me, I took them in place of you. Is that right KD? [Kathie: That’s what the verse says.] I am grateful that God counted me worthy to do this office—to take the sins that were committed and the afflictions from the sins that were behind, and put them on my soul. This prophetess, by the Spirit of God, opened my eyes to see this.

Kathie: He opened my eyes first. You know Paul says on more than once occasion, “I’m a prisoner of the Lord.”

Doyle: Yes. Well that’s what I am. You know, I can see the love of God and having someone suffer in the flesh for you, because you couldn’t have handled the suffering. Do you agree KD?

Kathie: That’s what the word says. It says God made Paul “a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you,

In other words, he got the ministry from God, for those people. It says in the previous verse:

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake,

And he’s talking about the Church.

Doyle: You know, yesterday was an interesting day; they all are for me, because every day my eyes are opened more and more. KD and I were talking sometime yesterday about giving thanks, [in the daily program] 1 Timothy 2. I’ve taught this for years, I could give thanks for people, but does it hurt. I’ve learned this, if there is anybody you can’t give thanks for, you’ve got trouble; anybody that you can’t thank God for, you’ve got trouble in your life, in your heart, in your spirit, in your faith. But I’m going to tell you this, you can speak it in the flesh and it’s not profitable, but you can give thanks for someone with faith and it will profit you, it will profit them. Oh what a savior!

Kathie: You know it’s interesting, along that line, Jesus at the last supper, when he gave thanks, do you know, Judas was right there, and you know, Jesus needed Judas.

Doyle: But I started, I thanked God for someone, and I could tell there was faith with it. Now let me tell you something: I’ve learned, that the sins that have been laid upon my soul, sins of other people, have to be forgiven by me; they’d have to be forgiven by me, and its only faith that you could forgive them. And did you know that it is only God that can prepare your heart with faith and repentance, for the sins that were laid upon you. This has been a lesson that I’ve had to walk out, and I forgive that sin that you committed that’s laid on me; I have to forgive you for it.

I know you don’t understand this. That’s alright, neither did I, but I am getting there. Thank God. I’ve suffered for your sins, suffered the pain and I’m grateful that I can, and overcome, and forgive you for laying those sins on me. Are you getting this? I have to forgive you for laying your sins on me. Last night I talked and asked people to pray about Hebrews 12; I could tell I was striving against sin. I thought, “What is this?” Striving against sin, but not unto blood and I asked people to pray for me. I sent a message out and asked them to pray for me. I needed help and I didn’t know why.

KD heard this, she heard it at night as I did: every time I would wake up I’d be thanking God. Is that right? [Kathie: That is right.] When you’d wake up you’d hear me thanking God and you know at 5:00 AM this morning, KD went downstairs, she does that frequently and I stayed in my bed praying, which I do, and things started coming up, sins that people committed against me, they were laid on my soul and those sins were manifesting, and I was living them, they were alive in me and they hurt, they were painful. And I suffered with them. This is what I didn’t know, what I couldn’t believe, that I was going to suffer for what you’ve sinned. Jesus took up suffering for the whole world, I’ve just taken some that were left behind. Is that right KD? [Kathie: That’s right]

Bryan did you know this has taught me a lot this night. Do you have anything?

Bryan: Only one thing, what came to mind as you were sharing such a deep word, was the cup that Jesus described, and he said at the time the twelve s weren’t able to receive that cup, but they would. And it was just amazing me to hear you speaking and describing that cup. And I was whoa! That’s the cup right there and Jesus also made a statement in Luke 12:48:

But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

And I’ve come to see that we really don’t understand a lot in this walk that we have. What God commits to us is what we come to learn and understand as we walk with him. And as I heard what you were going through as you gave it from your words, I began to see what God had committed to you and what God committed to you is a great thing but there is a lot required. And I don’t think that’s to scare anyone away, I don’t think you should be afraid of what God is committing to you in your life because he has given you grace and the faith to walk it through and it’s for the benefit of the body. What Doyle has experienced has been a benefit to all of us because he has shown us that he is more than able to keep his servant standing. And that is the very encouraging part to me is seeing how God has kept Doyle standing and kept him walking through this just as Jesus walked through all of our sins. It’s very encouraging.

Doyle: I want to tell you something, a bunch of Baptist preachers got after me in the seventies, I lost a large portion of bone around my teeth from the stress. My dentist said, “What have you been doing?” I said, “I haven’t been doing anything.” I wasn’t about to tell him that a bunch of Baptist preachers tried to destroy me, and they got Derek Prince involved, a friend of mine. So, I had to have gum surgery because of the bone. They told me if I could keep my teeth five years I would be very fortunate. I used my faith, I believed God and I kept them much longer. Amazing, in 2000 I was flying home from a crusade in Anaheim and I lost a bunch of teeth out of my mouth. They went downhill rapidly. Last night, for an hour my mouth was so sore. I’m not any longer prideful, I have one tooth left in my head. I’ve had people try to pay for me to go to the dentist. “No, I will not.” I thought, “I’ve got more money than you’ve got.” I didn’t say that but that’s what I knew. When I start talking here [on set] about the Baptist preachers, my mouth was hurting, it’s almost all gone. Did you know I’ve got a new set of teeth coming? You know who destroyed them? God’s people. The ones, teeth that I had my dentist take great care of.

Chico Holiday – “The Law Of The Lord Is Perfect”

1970 to 1977 I made minimal amount of money, it wasn’t easy, I’m not going to talk about it now, but in 1977 God told me to give $100 a week to the United Methodist Church of McKinney and my prosperity took off, by the Lord, not by Doyle’s flesh and then I started having my teeth cared for by my dentist; I had a couple in Dallas. In 1989 God told me not to go back to the dentist. In 1990 they started coming out. Wasn’t easy, but I had to obey God. I had the money, I had the friends, the best dentist, of course your dentist is always the best, right? Best friends in Dallas and McKinney. I never considered going back to a dentist. I could have the best, they could have fixed [my mouth]. My mouth is a mess, but the Lord knows it and I do little complaining and I won’t. Thought you ought to know why my mouth is like it is. John chapter 9, a young child was blind, and the question was, is this the sins of the parents, or someone else?

John 9:

1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

That’s why my mouth is like it is, for the glory of God. You say, “You’re an idiot.”

I’m a fool for Christ sake.
