Parsha “Vayeira”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This parsha, Vayeira (Genesis/Bereshiet chapters 18 through 22) is probably one of the most…
…Critical, Prophetic, Demonstrative, Fundamental… (and so on!) in all of Scripture.

In the Erev Shabbat overlook look at the entire section, Mark explores why. From Sarah’s prophetic “laughter” at hearing she would bear a son at a ripe old age, to the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah, and “righteous Lot”, to one of the most important “tests” (or is it?) in the Book, this parsha has a LOT to consider.

This parsha is not only of the the Mostest of all of those various things outlined above, from prophetic to fundamental, it is also one of the most CONTROVERSIAL. Was Abraham REALLY asked by the Creator of the Universe to commit the heinous sin/crime of murder, or even human sacrifice? Certainly there have been no shortage of attempts to rationalize, justify, or even explain away a Torah-contradiction like that.

If you’ve heard Mark’s previous commentaries on this parsha, you know that this ‘test’ is nothing of the sort, and that is clear from the context, and the Text. But there is SO MUCH MORE, here. And so many ways that the Author has vowen together in this narrative, the prophetic fulfillment(s!) that follow, and in challenges that STILL confound us today, a message that has never been more apropos, or important.

Don’t miss this one!

Here is the combined two-part teaching:

“Laughter – and Waiting!”

Parsha “Lekh Lekha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

‘Lekh Lekha’ is literally THE Original “Come out of her” parsha in the Book (well, “Get OUT of the Garden,” was a different command for a different reason…)

The man who becomes the ‘First Patriarch’ and Father of Nations is told to “Get OUT of your country, out of your father’s house, away from kind,” and basically everything you knew and grew up with (pagan as it was) — and GO to a place that I, YHVH, will show you.

Talk about a walk of faith.

Mark Call first takes a look at the “whole story” in the Erev Shabbat Overview teaching, from the time the man then called “Abram,” first heard the command, and then the promise, and simply obeyed, to his sojourn and all-too-human mistakes in Egypt, to his multi-year challenges in realizing Yahuah had a plan for his heir all along, even if it might have even seemed funny on first hearing.

The Sabbath Day ‘deeper look’ into the story, the lessons, the haftorah, the related teachings of the Torah-Made-Flesh, and our OWN walk via the lessons of Abraham, begins with that “Come OUT” admonition, and goes all the way to a whole LOT of ‘politically incorrect’ questions even — like why are prayers that we’re at least TOLD ‘in his name’ not answered on our timetable?

Abraham is a model of what it means to be a man who literally walks in faith. But other lessons in Scripture show us there’s more to what is expected, even of us, than just meeting some minimum standard.

“Lekh Lekha: Get up and go — a Necessary, but Not Sufficient, Condition”

Parsha “Noach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Most of the time, the services from Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship include a look at the overall weekly Torah portion, followed later on by a look at some “current events” that relate to lessons “for such a time as this.”

This week, for parsha “Noach” (Genesis chapters 6 through 11), Mark decided to “reverse the order,” for reasons that should be clear. Since the story of Noach (aka ‘Noah,’ or evev Noe in the KJV) and The Flood are reasonably well-known (even if there’s a WHOLE lot folks learned in sun-day-skool that’s Just Plain Wrong!) and we’re told in Matthew 24 that “as it was in the time of Noah” it either will be, or more to the point – already IS, it makes sense to outline some of that up front:

Having set the stage for some of the ‘parallels,’ it’s time to turn to the specifics of the Days of Noach:

The Sabbath Day portion of the combined teaching is almost a “part 2” of what the prophecy about “as it was in the Days of Noach” means, with two specific focus elements:

– how does ‘the earth was filled with ‘chamas’ REALLY look? Does that word mean more than just “violence” (hint: Yes!)

– and something Mark-the-engineer likens to “the Filtering Process”. How does He separate “wheat from chaff,” the ‘dross’ from precious silver or gold, those who are swept away from those who CHOOSE to be LEFT BEHIND!? (The ‘Rapture Cult’ really does seem to have gotten the message from both the time of Noach, and the Messiah, BACKWARD.)

“Noach: As it was in the days of, part II,
– OR –
The Filtering Process”

The combined podcast with all three elements is here, via the Hebrew Nation Radio page.

Parsha “Bereshiet”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This week is again a bit different, not only because the old annual Torah cycle is now complete, along with the final of the Fall Feasts, but because “Bereshiet,” or ‘In The Beginning,’ is itself unique. And so absolutely packed full of fundamentally critical information, upon which literally EVERYTHING else in the Bible ultimately rests, that it’s a virtual impossibility to do it justice in just a single week’s study.

Mark begins not only “in the beginning”, but with a recap of why the first characters in the Book, in the original language, constitutes some of the mostly “densely-packed” information in existence. From there, it’s important that our Creator “knew the end from the beginning,” which goes a long way to explaining why the Book doesn’t simply END at chapter 3.

Also a bit different this week is the format of the presentation. Although taught in the usual two parts, this time the whole teaching is presented as a whole:

“Bereshiet:  REAL Foundations – and Why They Are Being Destroyed”

Final Shabbat of Sukkot from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This week is of course a bit different, because it is a Sabbath which is not only close to the closing of the Torah itself, but the week of Sukkot, or the ‘Feast of Tabernacles’ as well. So we get a different set of readings, and even a bit of “fielder’s choice” as Mark takes a look at some Writings and prophecies that aren’t often part of the regular cycle.

And “cycles” are certainly at the heart of the lessons, and the instruction, too!

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for another two-part look at a whole LOT of appropriate Scriptures for this final Sabbath of Sukkot, from the Gospel of Luke to Ecclesiastes, and prophecies of this “time in-between”.

First, the Erev Shabbat setup:

SSM Sukkot Shabbat Kol HaMoed

and then the Sabbath Day, and ‘Sukkot Cycle Wrap-up’:

“Sukkot Cycles- from Birth to Re-birth and the cycle in-between”

Parsha “Ha’azinu”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

As the regular annual cycle Torah portion readings come to a conclusion, we get several short, but very pithy, and even more dramatically relevant portions that should REALLY reasonate today.

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for another two-part look at the chapter 32 of Deuteronomy, parsha “Ha’azinu” and the related haftorah and prophetic readings of Moses’/Moshe’s extended teaching as he literally sings the final verses and turns over leadership to Yohushua/Joshua.

This ‘Song of Moses’ — as Mark shows — is not only prophetic, but it demonstrates why “cycles” not only describe what happens prophetically, but why and HOW we can understand history…

SSM Ha’azinu 2019

…while the Sabbath Day portion of the teaching details what we should DO as a result, and how.

“Ha’azinu: He TOLD us; Now He is SHOWING us – Tuning the Cycles”

Parsha “Vayelek”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for another two-part look at the single, short, two chapter portion of the Torah that begins the ‘wrap-up’ of Moshe’s extended teaching and summary of the Torah that climaxes in his final days, as he turns over leadership to Yohushua/Joshua.

This parsha (Vayelek, Deuteronomy chapter 31) recaps another important piece of advice – then and now – as they, then, and we, now, face the challenges to come. It also comes as we look forward to the heart of the Fall Feasts.

The Erev Shabbat overview of the parsha lays it all out:

This week the Sabbath Day portion of the teaching begins with the central command of the parsha, and why it was important then, and every bit as much so now, although in some respects we are in the “opposite part of the [historic] cycle”:

Kazakh! Or, Be Strong and of Good Courage.

The combined audio file:
“Vayelek: Kazakh! for the opposite half-cycle”

Parsha “Nitzavim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

If you are having difficulty explaining to ‘mainstream’ Sunday-school believers or even lapsed or disgruntled friends what it is about a “Hebrew Roots” understanding of Scripture that is different from what “we have HEARD it said” in the Bible, but it doesn’t REALLY say, then this is the teaching to download and save.

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship takes a two-step look at the single, short, two chapter portion of the Torah that pretty much nails TWO of the Very Biggest Lies in all of xtianity:
– “the ‘Law’ (all that Olde Testament stuff) has been Done Away With,”
and
– NOBODY, except Jesus, could Keep it anyway, so don’t bother trying either.

Not only that, but this parsha (Nitzavim, Deuteronomy 29:10 – 30:20) also includes perhaps the most succinct “Two-Word Summary” of Torah Exegesis in the Book, “Choose Life!”

The Erev Shabbat overview of the parsha lays it all out, in SSM “Nitzavim” 2019

While the Torah portion alone is sufficient to remove any doubt about the fact that the Author of Scripture says keeping His Torah is NOT too hard for us, the fact of the matter is that most of us really have “inherited lies” (a whole bunch of ’em!) “from our fathers” and been taught those Big Whoppers. Mark takes a look at some of the worst of those in more depth during the Sabbath Day examination, and the fact that what we have seen for centuries, if not millenia, really is “animosity” to Yahuah, and His Torah, or Instruction for us. And just as Kefa (aka “Peter”) warned, Paul is very often “TWISTED, by the unlearned and untaught” — resulting literally in destruction. There’s the letter to the Romans, and then, perhaps the Most Twisted Book of all – Galatians.

Parsha “Ki Tavo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a hard-hitting teaching that admittedly won’t sit well (or be sat through, in all likelihood) by those who most need to hear it.

“Ki Tavo”, or “when you have come in to the land” may sound like a bit of a non-sequitor. After all, just as promised, we failed to do as required, and were thus exiled from the Promised Land. And the promised curses came, too.

But what then? Even though America, the “New World,” wasn’t THE promised land, it was certainly seen as a land OF promise by those who sought to escape the persecution of an oppressive ‘church’ (yeah, probably plural) in Europe, and find freedom along with elbow room on those shores. And the Blessings, as promised, came — even though our forefathers were never even close to 100% obedient.

The parsha begins with “when you have come in,” and then prescribes a profession to be made, along with an offering of “bikkurim,” or first-fruits, of that land. The same conditions we have seen before, in fact, over and OVER again in His Word, of obedience TO His Word, all of it, are again repeated. Like He knew it was necessary.

That’s followed by a recounting of curses directed to individuals for things generally done in secret. (That, of course, was before they became Hollywood and Swamp Favorites, and Oh-So-PC).

And finally, the most telling, and maybe even famous – or at least they SHOULD be – blessings, and then cursings, in the whole Book. The blessings, we’ve seen. So we know they can be made, even in exile. But the curses, as Mark recounts with the usual “like it or not” proofs, are “already in progress.” Which should be more than sufficient warning.

“Ki Tavo: Blessings Proven and Cursings Now Already in Progress”

Parsha “Ki Tetze”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship a two-step look at parsha “Ki Tetze” (Deuteronomy 21:10 – 25:19) and
aruably one of THE most utterly “politically INCORRECT” sets of Scripture in the whole Book. And the fact that just about everything IN this parsha is no so forbidden even to talk about, much less advocate as the Written Word of Yah, speaks volumes. As does the hideous state of the fallen world which so hates and ignores that Truth!

The Erev Shabbat overview of the portion:

SSM “Ki Tetze 2019

Alternative Link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

And given that this parsha is SO ‘politically incorrect’, there does of course need to be a warning. Not only is this “adult content” (even though “school children” are routinely taught things that are not only far more ‘sexually oriented,’ but certainly far more just plain WRONG!) but it is also the kind of thing that those who worship the “Other god” are lusting to ban, ASAP.

“Why is it,” Mark begins, that when it comes to parts of the Bible that the Whore Church would prefer to ignore or outright deny, “that we hear, ‘just because something is permitted IN the Bible doesn’t mean we should DO it,’ instead of, WHY do we insist people DO it even when Scripture FORBIDS it?”

The answer is laying in the streets of San Francisco. It’s glorified in the Superbowl halftime show. It’s crammed down the throats of innocent children in what now passes for ‘education’. And its failure is proven by everything from the divorce statistics to the lying traitors vying to be the next Dictator-in-Chief.

The fact that most of “the world” doesn’t even begin to understand WHY it is so important that this instruction for our blessing has NOT been “done away with” says more about our society than anthing you will EVER hear from the lying politicians or media. Or, even more sadly, from most of ‘the church’.

“Ki Tetze: that This SI so UTTERLY NOT PC Really Makes the Point – Abominations Abound!”
