Leviticus 7: Laws Of Freedom and Trespass
"Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it"
The English word "free" originated from an ancient Anglo-Saxon word (the Anglos were a tribe of the Saxons; Saxony is in Germany), freis, that also happens to be the origin of the English word "friend." The original words meant to love, as in to not harm. That original meaning is very different to what "freedom" has been declared to mean in most of the world today - from what should be done for other people, to what is wantonly inflicted to other people now.
The English words "free" and "freedom" very-accurately translate the Hebrew word of the Scriptures, pronounced khof-shee.
The English word "trespass" originated from a French word, trespasser, that originated from a compound Latin word, trans passer, that meant to go beyond, as in to unlawfully cross a boundary, of any sort.
The English word "trespass" very-accurately translates the Hebrew word of the Scriptures, pronounced aw-shawm (which, perhaps not coincidentally, sounds very much like the English word ashamed).
Laws for righteous freedom and against trespass existed from eternity. Crossing the line between "freedom" and "trespass" is what made the winner Lucifer into the loser Satan (see Satan's Fall: From Conservative To Liberal).
"28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee." (Ezekiel 28:13-15 KJV)
For humans, the law for righteous freedom and against trespass began in the Garden of Eden. Man was created free, but not lawless (see Grace In The Garden).
"2:15 And the LORD God took the man [see also Adam and Adamah], and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it [see also Seed-Bearing Plants: For Food Or For Folly?].
Everything that was done at the Tabernacle was commanded by the LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ see Genesis 1: In The Beginning Was The Word and The Kingdom Of The LORD God) to be done as a living prophecy of Christianity (see Exodus 26: The First Christian Tabernacle). The offerings that were made portrayed repentance, and were repentance (see Leviticus 3: The Offering Of Fellowship and Christ Died For Repentant Sinners), while the High Priest's acceptance and deliverance of that "freedom" (keeping in mind the actual and original meaning of the word) portrayed the Messiah's atonement of the people to God (see The Forerunner Of Man and Of God and the Fact Finder question below).
"7:1 Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy. 7:2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round about upon the altar. 7:3 And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards, 7:4 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away: 7:5 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a trespass offering. 7:6 Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in the holy place: it is most holy.
The "thanksgiving" offering (see also Thanksgiving In History and Prophecy):
"7:11 And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer unto the LORD.
The LORD's dietary laws were about health, not "religion." While humans were still vegetarians, Noah understood the difference between "clean" and "unlean" as a matter of health (see Genesis 7: The Flood and Genesis 8: Noah's Altar).
"7:22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 7:23 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat. 7:24 And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use: but ye shall in no wise eat of it. 7:25 For whosoever eateth the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, even the soul that eateth it shall be cut off from his people. 7:26 Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings. 7:27 Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people." (Leviticus 7:22-27 KJV)
The "peace" offerings (see Leviticus 3: The Offering Of Fellowship):
"7:28 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 7:29 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, He that offereth the sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the LORD shall bring his oblation unto the LORD of the sacrifice of his peace offerings. 7:30 His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire, the fat with the breast, it shall he bring, that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the LORD. 7:31 And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar: but the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'. 7:32 And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest for an heave offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings. 7:33 He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part. 7:34 For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute for ever from among the children of Israel.
Fact Finder: When did the Messiah actually pay for all sin? When He made the Sacrifice? Or when He delivered it to God?

While most are aware that the image was a gift from the Roman-Catholic people and government of France, very few are aware that the Statue of Liberty was a deliberate, as stated by its builders, reproduction of the ancient Roman goddess Libertas, idol-worshipping Rome's "goddess of freedom." A 2,000 year-old Roman coin from 42 BC, from the era of the birth of the Roman Empire, shown below, shows Libertas (including the idol's name, the Latin Libertas, in English meaning "Lady Liberty" right on the coin); the face and the crown are identical to the Statue of Liberty.

It was the second major Israeli-Arab war since the founding of the modern state of Israel, as made possible by the British presence there after the end of the First World War (see The Balfour Declaration). Known as the Sinai War, it was code-named Operation Kadesh by the Israelis (whoever named the operation "Kadesh" was apparently unmindful of the historical reality that Kadesh was the place in the Sinai wilderness where the Israelites refused to obey the LORD and enter the promised land when they first had the opportunity to do so, and so were left to wander and die in the wilderness (see Israel In History and Prophecy: The Sinai Journey).
