Jer 48:11-12 AMP

Moab has been at ease from his youth, and he has settled on his lees {like wine} and has not been drawn off from one vessel to another, neither has he gone into exile. Therefore his taste remains in him, and his scent has not changed. 12 Therefore behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I shall send to {Moab} tilters who shall tilt him up and shall empty his vessels and break his bottles (earthenware) in pieces. 


“All that I knew, was that I was going to lick the world for God. I was a one-girl army expecting to lick the world for God.  Everything was wonderful.  I was never weary in body.  I knew no fatigue.  Then came the day when I got the message that Papa had been killed.  It was between Christmas and New Years.  Only God knows how I loved my Papa!  Up until that time, it was the first sorrow I had ever known.  The only sorrow that had ever come into my life.  My Papa. 


My Papa had been killed before he had ever heard me preach a sermon.  When they were having the funeral service for my Papa, I can not tell you one word that was spoken.  I can not tell you a song that was sung.  I only remember, before they closed the casket, I reached over and I laid my hand on Papa’s shoulder.  The shoulder where I used to lay my head, when, as a child I had a toothache, - as a child. 


There was such healing power.  There was such sympathy, such warmth, such consolation in Papa’s shoulder -  and I laid my hand on Papa’s shoulder.  And I knew something for the first time in my life.  I knew what real resurrection power was.  I was experiencing something I had never known before.  I was experiencing the precious Presence of Jesus.  Do you want to know the Man of sorrow?  Do you really want to know?  Do you really want to know the reality of Jesus Christ?  Do you want to know Him as a Person?  Then go to the valley of weeping.  Go through a Gethsemane. 


Ps 84:5-7 NLT

Happy are those who are strong in the LORD, who set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. 6 When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs, where pools of blessing collect after the rains!  7 They will continue to grow stronger, and each of them will appear before God in Jerusalem.  


Isa 53: 3,4  NKJV

He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 


I walked with pleasure and she chattered all the way

And then left me none the wiser for all she had to say. 

I walked a mile with sorrow and ne'er a word said she;

But, oh, the things I learned from her when sorrow walked with me!


Why do you think I can be a comfort to you?  Why do you think I can help you in your hour of sorrow?  No person can give to another any more than they have experienced themselves.  And He took that sorrow and He poured it again into another vessel.  My life was rich.  I wasn’t the same person that I was before.  My ministry wasn’t the same as it was before.  It was a richer life.  It was a deeper life.  {Kathryn has tears running down her cheeks and her nose was running as she pours out her heart to share this.}


Have you ever had your heart broken?  Do you know what it really means to make a consecration?  Do you know why I can tell you over and over again, that it costs much.  But its worth the price.  I can tell you because I know.  


The greatest decision I ever made in my life was a railroad station in LA California.  It was the greatest decision I ever made.  It was the greatest consecration I ever made.  I have loved and I have loved deeply.  I don’t do anything half way.  And somehow God has given me a great capacity for love.  I am human too.  I am human, sometimes I think I am so very human.  But, I made my choice and I chose my Master and a life of service for Him. 


I vowed to put Him first.  And when I got on that train at the railroad station in Los Angeles, all I had was the suit I was wearing and the dress that I called my pulpit dress in the suitcase and my Bible.  I never heard the whistle of a train, I never heard the clicking and clacking of the wheels of a locomotive, but that I remember that ride.  I had made my decision.  And He poured it again into a vessel...


...That first service, there were exactly 38 people.  But, my friend, that was the beginning of the ministry that you know now.  That was the beginning of a supernatural power of God in my life and my ministry.  For one week later, a woman stood up in a service and said,  “You know Kathryn, last night while you were preaching, I was sitting here in the auditorium and something happened to me.  I was healed by the power of God.  I was so sure I was healed that I went to my doctor.  I was examined today and he’ll verify my healing.’


I knew the secret.  It was the power of the Holy Spirit, using the vessel that was in His hand.  Surrender to Him.  He doesn’t ask for golden vessels.  He doesn’t ask for silver vessels.  All that He asks for is yielded vessels.  And He’ll take that yielded vessel and He will pour it.  And He will pour it into another vessel.  And you and I may look up through blinding tears sometimes and say, “Father God, I don’t understand, why did You allow this thing to happen to me?  Why did you create this thing to happen to me?  Why?”


Remember, He never makes a mistake.  The great Master hand does the pouring.  For every stone that bruised my feet, for every hill I’ve ever climbed, for every heartache, I do give praise to Him, for these were things that made me strong.


In this moment, wipe away those blinding tears.  Can’t you understand, He never makes a mistake.  Never, I promise you.  As I turn the pages of my own life back, I thank Him for those things.  I thank Him.  I wouldn’t be the person that I am this hour.  I couldnt help you, if I had never known heartache.  If I had never known sorrow.  If I had never paid the price.  I couldn’t feel your heart, I couldn’t feel your burden.  I couldn’t understand you. 


And one of these days after He has poured the vessel for the last time, the last pouring.  And He’ll take us all the way from earth into His Presence.  And I pray that I shall hear from His own lips, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

{end Kathryn quote}


Matt 25:23 NKJV

His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.' 


2 Cor 1:3-7  NKJV

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort , 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. 6 Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 7 And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation.


Isa 53 NKJV

53:1 The Sin-Bearing Messiah Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? 2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. 3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken. 9 And they made His grave with the wicked —  But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth. 10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. 11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.
