Beth Moore Bible Study

This Fall I started a Beth Moore bible study at a local church entitled "A Woman's Heart, God's Dwelling Place". Today was the last video in the series. The study was all about the tabernacle in the old testament and how after Jesus died for us We (the church) became God's dwelling place. This is such an incredible realization after studying all that the Israelites had to go through in order to please God and to be in His presence. To think that there are no more boundaries and that we can come to Him through prayer etc... anytime we want is amazing!!
She closed the study with this verse in Revelation 20:4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.
She went around the room and had people call out things that would be "no more"...cancer, accidents, rejection, abuse, pain, loneliness, betrayal, divorce etc... The list goes on and on. We won't even remember any of it according to Isaiah 65:17. Doesn't that just blow your mind?

As we ended our session we held hands with the person next to us and said this blessing in Numbers 6:24-26 The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace." As I was speaking these words over my dear friend Michelle I had tears streaming down my face. I couldn't help but think one day there will be no more tears.
