In this Bible study we reviewed the history of the children of Israel, as they left Egypt and the things they experienced on their way to the Good Land. The Lord really led us to focus on two matters: Confessing our Sins, and Eating Christ – through His Word.
Although we are on a college campus, reading many books and articles and studying topics thoroughly, our eating of Christ in His Word is something special. We must come to His Word, linger there, contact the living Person there, and learn to exercise our spirit, our deepest part, to receive Him, digest Him, and assimilate Him.
Why did God bring us to this university? To meet other Christians and mutually help one another to… POSSESS THE LAND!

We had seen that minerals are for building. This time we saw that minerals are also for protection. That is, for the spiritual warfare.

may be able to stand against the stratagems of

Join us for the Christians on Campus Bible Studies. We not only study, we also get to know each other, we eat dinner, we sing, and we pray!
Even as we gather and enjoy delicious food with the Christians on Campus club, and even as we prepare for our big Spring Break Trip with the club, our focus is still Christ. This week we saw what our relationship is with the minerals found in the Good Land. Furthermore, we found that our need is transformation!
Coming to Him, a living stone, rejected by men
but with God chosen and precious, You
yourselves also, as living stones, are being built
up as a spiritual house into a holy priesthood to
offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God
through Jesus Christ. (1 Pet 2:4-5)

As we continued to look at the Good Land, which represents Christ, we saw it’s goodness represented by fig trees, pomegranates, the olive tree, and milk and honey. We found…
- and the abundance of life
Ultimately again, to experience Christ in such a rich way and to flow His life out to others, we must be those who get filled with the Spirit, as revealed in the following verse…
And I answered a second time and said to him, What are the two olive branches that are by the side of the two golden spouts, which empty the gold from themselves? And he spoke to me, saying, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, sir. And he said, These are the two sons of oil, who stand by the Lord of the whole earth. (Zech. 4:12-14)

We feel that the Lord is really with us. He cares that we would experience Him and not just know about Him. This is the real feeling in our Bible Studies so far this semester. This time we read verses from Deuteronomy and from the New Testament. Here are the ones from Deuteronomy.
8:7 For Jehovah your God is bringing you to a good land, a land of waterbrooks, of springs and of fountains, flowing forth in valleys and in mountains.
11:11 But the land into which you are crossing over to possess is a land of mountains and valleys; by virtue of heaven’s rain, it drinks in water.
Because the Good Land is a land of mountains and valleys it points to the high and low experiences of the believers. Yet, in these experiences, Christ is the satisfying water. Furthermore, although the water comes from heaven, as believers, we have this water flowing within us already.

In this Bible Study we saw how the elevation of the good land signifies Christ’s ascendancy. The Great Sea and the Dead Sea signify death while the elevated good land signifies Christ’s resurrection and ascension.
Moreover, the way to experience Christ in His ascendancy is to contact Him. We read from the book: All Inclusive Christ, “When you contact Him, you will be resurrected, you will be ascended, for the Christ whom you contact is the Christ who has ascended to the heavens. When you contact Him, you will be on the high mountains, not in the valleys. You will be in the high land, far above sea level.”
We fellowshipped in small groups and helped each other with these questions:
- How is it that we can be on the high mountains when we contact Christ?
- What does contacting Christ look like?

What is our patience, and what is the patience of Christ? What is our love, and what is the love of Christ?
In this Bible Study we covered the Spaciousness of the good land. It is good – in its spaciousness. The good land is the all-inclusive type of Christ. As such, its spaciousness points to Christ’s unlimitedness. To apply the spaciousness of Christ is to apply His unlimitedness to our limitedness.
We read from Exodus and from Ephesians and we also read an excerpt from the book, The All Inclusive Christ, by Witness Lee.

Here’s a question for you: As a Christian, what is the measure of your experience of Christ?
This semester we started a new Bible Study on the good land. The Bible calls it an exceedingly good land (Numbers 14:7) and we will dive in to explore how the good land is applicable to us, the believers in Christ.
In this first Bible study we saw that Christ is the reality of all. Furthermore, as the reality of the good land, Christ is the center of God’s eternal plan. However, there is a battle for this land. We also explored some practical examples. Although a downloadable Bible Study PDF is available, we encourage you to come and join us, as most of the “meat” of our Bible Study is in the speaking that comes out through the group.
