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…

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

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.

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!”

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’.

Parsha “Shoftim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Every week the Torah portion seems to cast new light on old evil, and demonstrate AGAIN why the people of Israel – BOTH houses! – were sent into exile, and still remain.

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship a two-step look at parsha “Shoftim” (Deuteronomy 16:18 – 21:9) and more in-depth examination of why blasphemy that “the Law was done away with” is one of the Biggest Lies in all human history. The fruit, for those with “eyes to see” is increasingly impossible to ignore, and there are far more than two or three witnesses to the Truth of what is being revealed.

The Erev Shabbat overview of the portion:

SSM “Shoftim” 2019

The Hebrew Nation Radio alternative link is here:

There IS one dramatic change to the ‘context’ of the instruction in this parsha that illustrates just how far we’ve come down the path to “as it was in the time of Noah,” and it highlights the central theme of Mark’s deeper look into the lesson this week:

We have been exiled from the land, where almost everything that is being openly bragged about by those who so clearly and viscerally hate Yahuah would have carried a death penalty, once proven on the testimony of those two or three witnesses. How can we “put away the evil from the midst” of us, when virtually the whole world now SERVES it? And it’s those who try to “hear and obey” Him that now fear being shadow-banned, shunned, de-platformed, and red-flagged if they don’t pretend to be sociopaths as well? (Even though we are also commanded NOT to fear them!)

Don’t miss this hard-hitting look at just exactly WHY “justice, JUSTICE!” is no longer an option from “shoftim” who aren’t.

Parsha “Re’eh”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for the continued study of the set of several of the “most anti-paganism” and pro-Torah portions IN the Torah. As clear as the ‘run-up’ to this parsha has been, when it comes to how YHVH literally “hates” the worship of foreign, false, gods, this one pulls no punches. Chapter 13, in particular, and the description of a ‘false prophet’, and what should be done with such is the kind of thing which has, not surprisingly, disappeared from any dogma that it exposes.

And the latter part of the parsha is an outline of the major lies of the ‘whore church’, which turn out not to have been “down away with” at all.

Sometimes the Sabbath Day “deeper examination” has a twist, too. Again we are reminded of the ‘snare,’ and the seduction of idolatry. Still, we will hear the question asked, “just what revelance does any discussion of someone trying to entice to follow after ‘foreign gods,’ especially “those which you yave not known,” have today? (The irony of just how pervasive they are, instead, may be lost on the questioners.)

Mark suggests the best clue to the dilemma is still found in the parallels between idolatry and adultery, but the key to understanding how to combat the problem lies in “joy” (actually, simkah, and the difference matters).

Parsha “Ekev”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a study of the set of several of the “most anti-paganism” and pro-Torah portions IN the Torah. It’s a theme that is repeated multiple times in Scripture, but perhaps nowhere else so clearly and unequivocally as in this parsha: When you come into the land, you shall not serve their gods, for that will be a snare to you. And when it comes to their idols, don’t even covet the gold and silver on them. Utterly detest them. Don’t even take an idol into your HOUSE, lest you be accursed like it!

The Erev Shabbat overview of the portion (Deuteronomy 7:12 – 11:25)

 

The alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

Mark begins the Sabbath Day “deeper examination” of the parsha this week a bit differently. The parsha begins with what ‘shall come to pass,’ but – by now – all of that HAS come to pass, the blessings and the things that shouldn’t have happened, but did, leading to an exile still in progress. So it’s time to start with some talk about “faith”, and what happened with a lack thereof.

The theme of a ‘snare’, if we forget YHVH and are instead seduced by idolatry permeates the parsha, of course. But there is an element of understanding that reveals just how far down that road we’ve gone as a society when we think about what the point of “debate” once was. To find Truth, and seek to make a case based on Truth. When that is clearly no longer the goal, then what’s the point of discussion? And that goes a long way toward explaining what has happened to “civil discourse” in post-Biblical AmeriKa, too.

Moses AGAIN warns those who would turn from obedience to the instruction of Yahuah of the consequences, and AGAIN says not to do what they did, and we, as a world even, are still doing: going after other, false, ‘gods’.

This teaching, ultimately, is all about “faith”. What does that really mean anyway?

And we see that when it comes to Authority. His, and those who have sought to replace Him.

Parsha “Vaetchanan”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This week, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship embarks on a study of the single parsha in the Torah containing perhaps the premier collection of the ‘most fundamental texts’ in Scripture. And they are NOT limited to just the ‘Ten Debarim [‘Sayings’, ‘Commandments,’ ‘Words…’] and the Most Important single command in the Book, aka ‘the Shema’, but others that are now even more overlooked.

SSM “Vaetchanan” 2019

 

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

Mark begins the Sabbath Day “deeper examination” of the parsha from the ‘inside out’, because the most well-known elements are in the middle of the portion, and also becauase they have largely been discounted now by a world not only gone “insane”, but downright demonic, once the parts that lead up to them were totally “done away with,” by those who failed to “hear and obey” as commanded.

Moses warns those who would turn from obedience to the instruction of Yahuah of the consequences, which included the exile we are STILL enduring. He warned as well about being coerced to serve other, false, ‘gods’. There is a vitally important promise in there, too, about the eventual time, during the ‘end times’, when we not just can, but WILL, “return to Him.”

But what might just resonate most with us, today, while we ‘wait on YHVH’ is the idea of just exactly what we are seeing built around us, and the consequences of that rebellion. A “World Without Trust”.

Parsha “Debarim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a study of the first parsha in the last Book of the Torah, “Devarim”, aka Deuteronomy, and — at least once — the most-quoted reference when it comes to “Law” in the united States.

The parsa, and thus the Book, begins with a recap by Moses of a forty year journey through ‘the wilderness’ that could have been made in only 11 days, but wasn’t…and he reminds the ‘second generation’ of the sons of Israel in that mixed multitude why.

SSM “Debarim” 2019

 

Alternative Link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

Mark begins the Sabbath Day “deeper examination” of the parsha and a number of very-much-related Scriptures with a bit of characteristic “nerdiness” to set the stage: since both Scripture and history, and not to mention His physical universe and human nature, end up being cycles of repeating cycles, it’s important to ask not only where THIS story is, in context, but where WE are in a repeating cycle that at least ‘rhymes’.

Moses was addressing a group of people soon to enter, and hopefully conquer, the [promised] Land. Much later, as the haftorah reading from Isaiah 1 makes clear, they were ‘kicked out’, or sent into an exile that still persists. So, “where are we?” in that continuing cycle of fallen men repeating the same mistakes, but sometimes even more catastrophically?

“Debarim: THIS part of the repeating cycle, and What SHOULD the Righteous Do…Now?”
