On February 20th, 1976, a hush fell over the 800-bed hospital as the lights flickered out. Moments earlier, Kathryn Kuhlman, a renowned evangelist, had passed away. While her declining health suggested an irregular heartbeat leading to a flatline, her heart inexplicably stopped, leaving everyone stunned.
A stark contrast to the fading life outside, Kathryn’s body emanated a warmth that surprised the new, unbelieving nurse tending to her. But the true wonder unfolded next. The air, thick with the fragrance of millions of roses, enveloped not just the room but the entire floor. No roses were present, yet the heavenly scent bloomed from within.
The aroma’s journey didn’t stop there. It permeated the entire hospital, defying the sterility of medical floors and wafting across the street into the adjoining building. Nurses and patients alike were left in awe, unable to explain the fragrance’s origin.
As the head nurse arrived to record the official time of death, 1:13 am, she reprimanded the new nurse for allowing roses on the ICU floor, unaware of the invisible bouquet filling the air. The scent wasn’t confined to one room or floor; it had miraculously claimed four stories of the hospital and stretched beyond, leaving no doubt about its source.
Back in Kathryn’s room, the new nurse, overwhelmed by the tangible presence of the Holy Spirit, struggled to stand. The weight of glory, as she described it, was palpable. Later, checking the previous nurse’s notes, they found a chilling revelation: Kathryn’s final words and a request scribbled in haste.
“I shall die on February 20th at 1:13 am. Please have only roses at my funeral.”
Deeply moved, the young nurse, once skeptical, found herself overcome with tears. In that moment, she experienced a profound shift, touched by the undeniable presence of the Holy Spirit.
Kathryn Kuhlman’s passing wasn’t a somber farewell, but a glorious departure. Her legacy, intertwined with the fragrance of roses, continues to inspire even today, a testament to the extraordinary power of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and the mysteries that lie beyond our understanding.
God bless you
