Rejoicing is a central theme of the jubilee. There is always much rejoicing in our Bible Studies. Rather than boring, academic exercises, our Bible Studies are filled with singing, and our singing is filled with rejoicing!
Isaiah 12:3-6 says:
Therefore you will draw water with rejoicing / From the springs of salvation, And you will say in that day, / Give thanks to Jehovah; call upon His name! / Make His deeds known among the peoples; / Remind them that His name is exalted. Sing psalms to Jehovah, for He has done something majestic! / Let it be made known in all the earth! Cry out and give a ringing shout, O inhabitant of Zion, / For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

Not only do we know that Christ is the reality of the Jubilee; we are also learning to apply this wonderful one in every situation!
As the Jubilee, Christ truly satisfies us when we…
- Contact Him in prayer
- Call upon His name
- Sing to Him
Philippians 4:6-7 also stood out to us during the Bible study:
In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; And the peace of God, which surpasses every man’s understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus

It was another wonderful Bible Study. We spent half the time singing with grace to the Lord! You know, by singing, we can enjoy God and also get filled up with truth! The other half of the time we got into the Jubilee mentioned in Leviticus. We saw that the year of Jubilee is actually Christ Himself! Furthermore, the word Jubilee means… Happy – Year !!!

Join us for more Jubilee, Wednesdays at 6pm – Union 311.
A story from the Fall 2018 College conference held in Wanship, Utah
The last message of the conference was about the Jubilee. God had delivered the Israelites, His people, from Egypt and from oppression.. At the end of Leviticus God gave them the instruction to observe the year of Jubilee – that was supposed to be every 50th year. The children of Israel each had received a portion of the good land from God. Over time, if some mismanaged their possessions, they might have sold everything they had, even their portion of the land, and possibly even themselves (into slavery). However, on the year of Jubilee, they got to go back to their possessions!
Today Jesus is the real Jubilee–and we are those who have been set free from all slavery that is in the world! When we got saved, Jesus restored us to Himself as our allotted portion and to our family–all the brothers and sisters in the church! We used to live oppressed but now have Jesus and our new family! – Debbie
A story from the Fall 2018 College Conference held in Wanship, Utah
The Bible verses in the College Conference emphasized the importance of eating Christ. For example, John 6:57 says, “As the living Father has sent Me and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also shall live because of Me.” For us to actually experience this, we were sent off to spend personal time with the Lord. During that time, I practiced singing to the Lord, reading His word, praying, and simply learning to spend time with Him, even learning to just communicate with Him.
Another aspect of eating Christ that stood out to me in the conference was that whatever we are surrounded by, that is what we take in to us and that is what we end up expressing. On the one hand, this is quite serious, as we could end up with “Garbage in, garbage out.” On the other hand, if we’re taking Christ in, then we’re expressing Him. – Eli
