For the Jews, prophecy was not just predicting the future as we think of it today, but prophecy dealt with patterns that pointed to a deeper truth, a future truth. So all the Jewish feasts were not just commemorating some past event, but they were also, by their schedule and pattern, also pointing to something in the future, something prophetic.
For example, we know the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread was fulfilled by Jesus and the cross. But did you know the Feast of Firstfruits was fulfilled in the resurrection and the Feast of Weeks in the birth of the Church?
What about the Feast of Trumpets or the Feast of Tabernacles or the Day of Atonement. What future events do these point to? Want to know more? Then keep listening.

Romans 12:1-2 speaks of our response to God for His abundant grace and mercy. In essence it asks, "What are we to do with all the goodness You have shown us?" And the answer is simple:
I beseech (or, urge, beg) you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present (what) your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
And how do we go about doing that?
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, (why) that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
How does this fit in with the book of Leviticus? Listen and find out more.
