Scripture:- 2 Kings 2:1-15
Topic:- Evangelist Kathryn Johana Kuhlman
Text:- 2 Kings 2:9

She gave God her spirit, her soul, and her body, in return God used her to do great wonders, many of which are still very difficult to believe today – Tribute to Kathryn Johana Kuhlman.
On the 9th of May 1907, in Johnson County, Missouri, United States, the modest family of Kuhlman received the birth of a lovely baby girl, a child who unknown to them would leave an indelible mark on the face of the earth.
Kathryn was one of the four children born to their German-American parents.
She gave her life to Jesus Christ at the tender age of 14 after a spiritual experience that changed her life forever.
She graduated from High School at the age of sixteen after which she began itinerant preaching, with her elder sister and brother-in-law across the Western States to California, then on to Idaho, United States.
After five unsuccessful years of their itinerant preaching, Kathryn’s brother-in-law, Everett became tired of the arrangement and eventually abandoned the mission leaving behind his wife, Kathryn, and their Pianist, Gulliford.
Kathryn’s sister Myrtle soon joined her husband, leaving behind 21 years old Kathryn and 26 years old Helen Gulliford (Pianist) to continue with the mission.
However, God decided to release His blessings upon the young preacher, and sooner than later, her little itinerary became a major outreach in Idaho.
She traveled with Helen throughout Idaho to preach. One participant in her meetings in Idaho recalled the worshippers regularly filled the Baptist Churches during Kuhlman’s two to six-week revival services.
Kathryn Kuhlman’s ministry, however, suffered a major setback. In 1938, she entered into a controversial marriage with Burroughs Allen Waltrip, who, unknown to Kuhlman was already married with two kids.
Burroughs deceived Kuhlman that his wife has divorced him and that he was a single man.
That fatal mistake cost her six painful years of shattered ministry. Her associate, Helen Gulliford resigned her position due to the rather unfortunate union.
Kuhlman eventually left her Denver Revival Center to join Waltrip in his “Radio Chapel”.
According to wikipedia.org, Radio Chapel became unable to service its loans and was eventually closed down. This led the disjointed couple to years of serious hardship.
The good news is God enabled Kuhlman and she finally abandoned the marriage. In 1942, the marriage was divorced by Waltrip.
Kuhlman knew God was not done with her, and she didn’t allow her past to put an end to her ministry. She determined to start all over again, thus, the beginning of her healing ministry which soon became an international outreach.
Kuhlman traveled extensively around the United States and in many other nations holding ” healing crusades.”
She became one of the most well-known healing ministers in the world. Thousands of people were reported to have been healed miraculously in her services.
The healing power of God was so manifested in her meetings several thousands of people always had to travel from far to attend her healing services.
People she prayed for would often be hit by the power of God and be slain in the Spirit.
Her weekly Television program, “I Believe In Miracles” was viewed by millions around the world during the 1960s and 1970s.
She also had a 30-minute Nationwide Radio Ministry. According to healingandrevival.com, many people were healed even while listening to her on the radio or television.
Kathryn Kuhlman was used by God to perform unusual miracles but she never took credit for any of them, she always insisted that Jesus Christ is the one behind all the miracles.
On 20th February 1976, Kuhlman departed this world to be with Lord. Her body was laid to rest at Forest Lawn, California, United States.
44 years after this great General left this world her spiritual legacies still speak in the body of Christ all over the world.

Prayer Point: Oh Lord God, break me, remold me and uses me for Your divine purpose for my life henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Mid-Week!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
