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
