Did you know that the Greatest Prophecy isn't found in the Book of Daniel? That the time of Jesus' crucifixion can be found in Leviticus 23? But wait, you say. Didn't Moses write Leviticus? Wasn't that during the Exodus, the deliverance of the nation of Israel? Pastor Gordon Pifher shares the significance of the feasts which God gave to the Israelites. The feasts weren't set up to provide times of celebration-each feast has significance in the coming of the Messiah and in the salvation of God's people. There is value in studying the feasts, as they were given to point to God's plan of salvation. Our salvation comes not from the observance of the feasts (nor was it for the Israelites), but from God, through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ.
