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, 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 broken hearted, 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.

I want to welcome everyone receiving this broadcast…

Terre Brown: “I Have Returned”

Doyle: I really didn’t think about this song when I asked Terre this morning if she would sing it. She said, “Sure I will.” I said, “Ok.”

It talks about me returning to the God of my childhood, the Father and Jesus, made known to me from birth—then it talks about, I’ve returned to the God of my mother, the Baptist mother, that told the Lord, “You give me a son, I’ll give him back to you.” And then it talks about the God of my father, the man that told me, for many years, one day I would have to preach the gospel. That’s amazing isn’t it? And sure enough, his prophecies came true. Amen. So, I did what my flesh wanted to for a few years, but in 1969 I had to give it up. I had to do what God planned for me to do. I had to do what my mother wanted me to do, and I had to do what my father said I should do. What can I say? January 2, 1970, I drove away from 121 Veterinary Hospital and the practice that I built. I was sole builder and owner of 121; I built the practice by myself and left as God had said, with one thing, “Obey me.” I didn’t know where I was going. I’m in the forty-eighth year. Do you realize that? [Kathie: Amen] That’s quite awhile, you know that?

I have not departed from what God told me, “Sell it and obey me.” I thought it, but my thinking didn’t run very far back.

In 1970 in Chicago, Illinois, just about the 4th of July, I met Derek and Lydia Prince. Derek and Lydia became good friends for a period of time. I became well acquainted with Derek and Lydia when I moved to Florida to manage a veterinary hospital in Opa-Locka in 1971.

There I met Bob Mumford. I attended some social gatherings with Bob, his wife Judy (I didn’t know her well), but Bob and I talked kind of heart to heart. So now I know Derek Prince, I know Lydia and I know Bob Mumford.

Lydia Prince to me is maybe the most unusual person I’ve ever met. A school teacher that was saved and believed God and trusted God obviously, with her whole heart. I’m not sure how old Lydia was when she went to Israel [Lydia arrived in Israel, October 18, 1928, she was 38 years of age]. She went to Jerusalem. What I remember about Lydia, she contacted someone that had an ad in a newspaper or magazine or something. [Ida Gustafsson]. She wrote them a letter, a letter about coming to Israel, a single woman.

Kathie: And she didn’t know why she was going, why God had her go, till later.

Doyle: Lydia, talking to me on several occasions, impacted my faith in a good way, would you say?

Kathie: Absolutely. The woman had some.

Doyle: She was of great faith, simple childlike faith, like my earthly father; he amazed me how he could believe God.

I asked Dad once, “Did you ever worry?”


“Well how’d you get it stopped?”

“I just quit.”


“Well sure, I just decided I wasn’t going to worry anymore.”

Is that amazing?

Kathie: That’s amazing. He had for an ulcer in his stomach for a while, from worrying?

Doyle: He sure did.

Kathie: And the doctor told him he couldn’t eat some of the foods he was eating. He decided one day he was going to have a piece of apple pie a la mode. Right? [Doyle: Right] Which is a no-no if you have a stomach ulcer, and he said, “Well if I die I’ll go to be with Jesus.”

Doyle: With the ulcer. Guess what? He ate it.

Kathie: At a restaurant.

Doyle: Absolutely. Do you know the place he ate that? [Kathie: No.] The house we built in Joplin, the young man’s father was Jesse Long, owned Jesse’s Truck Stop. There was a restaurant there.

Kathie: Oh, it was apple pie a la mode at a truck stop, that’s the best kind of restaurant.

Doyle: That’s where he stopped. Guess what? He didn’t have any ill feelings from it, he didn’t die, he was healed. That easy.

One of the toughest things to handle for me, he got hit in the jaw with and inch and a quarter in diameter, five-foot bar. It hit him in the jaw, the mandible, the bone you can feel with your finger, thumb and he went to a physician, who had an office in Branson and Forsyth. And the physician examined it and said, “I believe your jaw is broken.” The break was the width of a pencil. The physician asked him, “Do you want me to get an ambulance?

“No.” He had to go to Branson. Dad said, “I’ll drive.”

Kathie: How far away was it?

Doyle: Twelve to fifteen miles I think. So what did he do? Gets in his pickup, talks to Jesus, gets to Branson. If I remember, the physicians name was Threadgill. He x-rays Dad’s jaw and says, “Lyle there is a hairline, there, where something broke. I’m not going to do a thing for it.” God healed it on the way. That’s the man that said I had to preach the gospel. He had some childlike faith wouldn’t you say? His son didn’t.

Kathie: Till later. Well the son, hurt his wrist, cut the tendons in his wrist, in fact it looked like a suicide cut. You went to the doctors, they said they were going to cast it for a couple weeks [Doyle: 14 days], and then we are going to really set it. They said—

Doyle: “You destroyed your wrist.”

Kathie: They wrapped it for fourteen days and then you went back in to get the full blown cast on it and you went to a restaurant right after that, and the Lord spoke to you in the restaurant:

Doyle: “You ought to obey God, not man.”

Kathie: And at that dining room table in the restaurant you said, “What did you say?”

Doyle: That’s what I said.

“You ought to obey God not man.”

And I said, “Say that again.”

“You ought to obey God and not man.”

I looked down, here’s a piece of gauze, (plaster of paris cast), it wasn’t stuck down. I excused myself and went to the men’s room and started pulling it apart.

Kathie: Amen, and you got most of it done didn’t you? [Doyle: Yes.] I can imagine what the janitor thought when he went to change the trash can.

Doyle: When I got home, I took a pair of tin snips and the cast was full arm, just below the elbow and Icut it , took it off, threw it away—never went back to the doctor.

Kathie: That took some faith.

Doyle: He’s the one that gave me a hug.

Kathie: That’s right. He never did ask you why you didn’t come back.

Doyle: He never asked. He probably thought, “This guy will do about anything, that wasn’t true.

Kathie: But God healed your wrist.

Doyle: He healed my wrist.

KD: I want to ask you a question for those of you who don’t realize it, you cut the tendon in your wrist, and you just missed the blood vessel-

Doyle: I could see the artery and the vein and the nerve right beside it. [Kathie: And they weren’t hurt.] No they weren’t, only capillary bleeding. I could see my pulse, I could see the nerve, see the vein, artery and my physician who was a great friend, almost collapsed.

Kathie: So he sewed the tendon back together.

Doyle: The tendon—he brought in a specialist.

Kathie: I was going to say, that’s not an easy thing to do.

Doyle: Right, very difficult. He told me I had destroyed my wrist. “No way,” I didn’t believe that one.

But I’ve got to get to deeper things; I guess this is pretty deep, I used my faith a bit.

I trust in God. I posted something on Facebook about two people who influenced my life:

I thank God for using through His Spirit, Derek Prince and Bob Mumford to open my eyes about the Word of God.

He used them through his Spirit. Here we go, in 1974 I go to Israel. Derek and Lydia invited us to go on the Family Tour; you can read about it. Frankly, I didn’t know much about Israel, except the biblical things I’d learned, but we went and guess what happened? At the Tomb of the Garden, God anointed me, Acts 1:8 on June 16, 1974. Would you read that?

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

Do you see why it was easy for me to say that Derek, and I’ve got to say Lydia (Prince) influenced my life through the spirit? Can you see that? Look what happened at the Tomb of the Garden [on Sunday]. Then on Tuesday night, Derek asked me at dinner if I’d like to speak ten minutes at Christ’s Church. “Sure.” I excused myself, went to my room and said, “OK, Lord, I said yes, now what am I going to say?”

“What have I done for you?”

I said, “Oh yes, you’ve been getting Patti and Kathy to follow me.” So what’d we do? We go back and we talk about Joshua 24:15:

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Afterwards a lawyer from New Zealand came to talk to me and said:

“I’ve presented a lot of cases to a judge, and before a jury and I’ve heard a lot presented, but I’ve never heard anybody present what you did—concise, short, understandable,” something to that effect, very complimentary.

You can read about that, but the difficult things came later. I [had] left Florida [in 1972], and came back to Texas. God sent me. Before I left, Bob Mumford recommended a book, The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee. I said, “I need it, I’ll buy it.” I bought that book; we got back to Texas and it wasn’t fun. I expected it to be victory, victory, victory. It was, “Obey, obey, obey!” Stay in a hotel and read Romans, ten weeks. But let me tell you what directed me to Romans: the book, The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee. I started reading it and it was about the Book of Romans. I said “I don’t need this thing, I’ve got the Book of Romans. Well I could read. Not only that, I had a concordance; by that time I had learned something about studying the bible. I had Vine’s, I had Young’s, I probably didn’t have Strong’s yet, but I soon got it. Alright? That was when the real fun began, would you say? I’m reading Romans.

Kathie: I’ve shared this many times, but I find it interesting, that the Protestant Church began with a man that locked himself in his room and read the Book of Romans, over and over and over and over and God had you do the same thing only he locked you in a hotel.

Doyle: Ten weeks—I had money, I couldn’t lease, I couldn’t buy, I couldn’t do anything for a place to live except the Denton Holiday Inn.

Kathie: And you even moved around [to different] rooms hoping that would open something up.

Doyle: Three or four times, I thought that would help. That was my superstition and I didn’t know I had any. Anyway, I tell you, I think it’s right we move to this.

I read Romans and ended up in the first five chapters at the last. I tried to read it all, that wasn’t good. I tried to read the first eight chapters that wasn’t right, so I ended up in Romans 1 through 5. One day I said to the Lord, “If I could just see your power, I could believe.” Are you here? Ya, you think God wasn’t ready for me?

“Romans Chapter 1, how about verse 20, Doyle?”

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

Doyle: Invisible things, of God, right? [Kathie: Right.] Are what?

“…from the creation of the world”

Oh, from the creation. You people that don’t think he created anything, that the “Big Bang” put it in place—I asked a PhD, a geologist, very wealth man, spent a lot time in the Middle East, digging somewhere. I asked, “How do you think the earth was formed?

“Oh, Big Bang.”


This guy wore overalls and sandals and had a beard and was worth millions of dollars. I think they were Egyptian sandals. I was his veterinarian for several years. He came to Kathy and Terry Mai’s wedding.

Kathie: You know I went to college with some of the Big Bang theories and I realized later that they had a problem with their theories. First, where did the mass come from? and who lit the match?

Doyle: Oh sure. They had all kinds of problems. If they would have been smart and thought, you know? [Kathie: Amen.]

Now lets go back, The invisible things of God,

"from the creation of the world are clearly seen"

Oh, the invisible things of God, from the creation, clearly seen. Oh? You know I had six years at the university, I was a veterinarian, I got two degrees: a B.S. in agriculture and a DVM, doctor of veterinary medicine. Now let’s go, clearly seen-

clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made,

Doyle: Oh my! Clearly seen and being understood—what’s being understood? God. Isn’t that what that says?

Kathie: Clearly understood the invisible things, [Doyle: of God] of God, yes.

Doyle: What’s next?

“…clearly understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

See everything to now…kind of weird, but now we get to eternal what?

“eternal power and Godhead”

Doyle: Wait a minute. Eternal power! Are you there? Eternal power can be clearly clean, understood? Right?

Kathie: Right. By the things that were made, and we’re made.

Doyle: Yes. Eternal power, what else does it say?

“…and godhead.”

Doyle: That verse gave me hours of, “How dumb are you?”

Kathie: And that next part, “so they are without excuse.”

Doyle: Yes that was me, no more excuses. See I made an excuse, “If I could just see the power of God.”

Well, look at that bird right there. God made it. Look at that horse, God made it. Look at that man, God made it. Look at your wife, God made her. How about my daughter? He made her too. How about me? “I made you too.” One day he told me, “I made you for this job.”

Folks, don’t criticize the way you are, the way you look, the way you’re built, don’t. You know what? God made you for a purpose, made you for a purpose. Don’t criticize it. But did you know, read that again.

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

Doyle: Eternal power. If I could just see the power. Well look at that tree right there, you’re about to run into. Or the one you’re going climb, or the one you’re going to cut down. If you’re married and you have a wife, look at her, maybe you’ll approve of God.

Listen, If you didn’t think that didn’t change my life and If you don’t think going to Israel and called of God to preach the gospel, Two very important things, in my life.

One of them Derek and Lydia, Israel, anointed to preach, Tomb of the Garden.

And then Bob Mumford, told me about that book; I bought it, by Watchman Nee. You know I didn’t buy that book to learn a thing about that book?

Kathie: You didn’t read very much of it, did you?

Doyle: No, very few pages. I thought, “My goodness, this Is about Romans, why do I want to read this book? I can read and I’ve got the Book of Romans,” and I wanted to walk in the word. Now, let me assure you that in that first chapter of the Book of Romans, I believe God opened my heart to the gospel, but going on to Corinthians 15, there, how about reading that? Paul preached the gospel, it’s power, not word only.

Kathie: Amen. 1 Corinthians 15:

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Kathie: As I say, “the bona-fide definition of the gospel.”

Let’s go back to Romans 1:16:

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Doyle: Therein, in the gospel, is the righteousness of God revealed. Right? [Kathie: That’s right.] And from faith to faith? [Kathie: From faith to faith.]

If you think that Bob Mumford and Derek Prince and Lydia were not used by God to open the eyes of this blind veterinarian, trust me that’s what changed my life.

Well, you know what God told me yesterday to do? Give $50,000 to Derek Prince Ministries and $50,000 to Bob Mumford’s, are you here? [Kathie: I’m right here.] And I’m giving it today. [Kathie: Amen.] I think we’re through don’t you?

Mercy grace…multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and the Lord Jesus Christ. God bless you. I pray that God opens your eyes by listening and viewing this video and you get a revelation of that man Jesus and a revelation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. God bless you.

    I'm Liubov Nikonets, from Texas USA. I had been in a relationship with a guy and we had unprotected sex for the first time and within a day i got a big bump on the crease of my thigh and vagina. after a few days it began to hurt more and more. I told him to take a picture of it for me, and it looked like open sores, like bugs were biting off my skin or something. So i went to the ER and they said genital herpes. I was soooo depressed. my boyfriend and i cried. he cried for me, but he had no idea he had it too. next day, same thing happens to him. at this point, we think i gave it to him because I was the first one to show the symptoms. The next phase I went through was depression. At this point, all I did was sleep and cry. I felt like my life was over. I knew I could never get married, I felt dirty, and worthless. I was depressed for about two months. I fought thoughts of suicide and it was a hassle to even carry out my daily tasks. So I started to wonder if there would be a remedy to this disease, which led me to going to visiting many hospitals, and nothing good came out from it, until I read a person’s testimony online that said that they were cured with the help of Dr LEWIS Spell, of this disease that the world deems incurable and tears rolled down my face. That persons testimony sparked a hope in me that led me to contact Dr LEWIS. So he assured us that we are going to be alright, after meeting up with the necessary requirements, he sent us a parcel and gave us instruction guide on how to use it, which we did, after 7 days of using the medication, the herpes was totally cured. So I and my boyfriend went and got tested for every STD in the book and every single test came back NEGATIVE, we also went back to the hospital, and it was confirmed NEGATIVE. I am posting my testimony to help someone out there suffering from this disease. Do not hesitate to contact Dr LEWIS via e-mail: or WhatsApp him on +393511568477
