Parsha “Behar” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “B’har” or ‘in the mount’ [Sinai] (Leviticus 25:1-26:2) is both notable – for one specific English word – and also problematic, because it applies “in the land,” where we’re NOT any more, and arguably because it is even more foreign to our anti-Torah economic and ‘world’ system than almost anything else except the dishonest weight of the Almighty Fiat Dollar itself.

But, ‘Jubilee’ we’ve HEARD of, even if to no real effect.

And, again, what with the world melting down, and at the brink of civil and world war to boot, what would a REAL ‘great reset’ accomplish at this point anyway?

First, the Erev Shabbat reading, where the concept of the ‘yovel’ – or Jubilee – is outlined:

It seems clear from the reading that that one of the primary prerequisites of the ‘shmita’ rest for the land, and then the 50 year ‘yovel’ – or “Jubilee” – was TRUST: that Yahuah would actually do what He promised, so that His people would have sufficient provision for the rest years.

Ultimately, history – and Scripture – shows they did not. We still don’t.

“Proclaim liberty throughout the land, and to all the inhabitants thereof,” is the inscription on the Libery Bell in Philadelphia, and it comes from this parsha, Leviticus 25:10. But that’s just one of the disconnects with Scripture today.

A even bigger one has to do with the entire concept behind that verse. And a world economic system, based on an abomination to YHVH, that will soon demonstrate why His plan was so much better – because a ‘reset’ every 50 years beats societal collapse.

THAT is virtually inevitable now.

And the “Babylonian Exile,” was said to be so that The Land could have its rest. Something that was commanded to be done, that wasn’t. In contrast, much of this next judgment seems to be a function of things that He commanded NOT be done, that are. And are taught in schools, too, as a slap in His face.

Parsha “Emor” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Emor” (Leviticus chapters 21 through 24) continues the theme of “holiness” – but this time for a group of people that many ‘christians’ would now see as irrelevant. After all, we have new ‘priests’ today, and the sons of Aaron seem to have been displaced centuries ago.

And, besides, with the world melting down, and at the brink of civil and world war to boot, what difference does it make?

The Erev Shabbat reading:

The continuing theme of Kedoshim is to “be set apart.” Emor comes next.

And the kohenim, or priests, were not only to be “set apart” themselves, but to teach what that means, and were held to a “higher standard” as well.

Bitterly ironic, however, and especially now, is that what replaced the priests of YHVH were ultimately a pagan imitation, where mandated marriage to virgins was turned on its head, to mandated celibacy – except for what Yahuah made clear was abomination.

Arguably, what has happened since should be no surprise. But it will still be denied.

Parsha “Kedoshim and Judgment” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Kedoshim” (Leviticus chapters 19 through 20) is the regular reading for this week, following the Feast of Unleavened Bread. But given the holiday, Mark actually took a look at the first part of the reading last week, with chapter 18, and the introduction to “be holy (or ‘set apart’, y’all!) because I AM.”

The Erev Shabbat reading continues that theme,

The continuing theme of Kedoshim is to “be set apart.” But what should really “leap off the page” at us is that virtually every ‘chuq’ or statute that YHVH lays out for us and tellsl us NOT to do is something that is not only being taught in the ‘public cesspools,’ but espoused on TV, subsidized by taxpayers, and even mandated by Big Brother. It is particularly ironic, then, that the people of Canaan who once did these same things for THEIR gods were “vomited out of the land.”

More eye-opening still, given the circus that now masquerades a court system, and the perversion of “justice” that makes a mockery of the Rule of Law, is the current massive solar storm, resulting from the biggest and most impressive earth-directed set of CMEs, or “Coronal Mass Ejections” in the modern era of being able to record and measure them.

Solar scientists were calling it a G5 Geomagnetic Storm (analogous to an F5 tornado, perhaps) with some even indicating a chance of major power and communications systems disruption or damage, and even a 10 to 12% chance of a “global killshot” event.

It’s almost like a “sign in the sun,” that is hard to deny could constitute a ‘warning’. Nevertheless, most will. And the world continues to “double-down” on evil.

So, is it time YET to “come out of her?”

Parsha Acharei Mot into Kedoshim teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Acharei Mot” (Leviticus chapters 16 through 18) is the regular reading for this week, following the Feast of Unleavened Bread. But we did take a look at that week, Mark decided to look at some of the ‘common elements,’ including statutes and ordinances that span the gap between chapters 18 and then 19, which begins parsha “Kedoshim.”

The Erev Shabbat reading explains the rationale, and the understanding to ‘be ‘qadosh‘ [set-apart, or ‘holy’] because “I AM” qadosh.

It is undeniable, when reading from the end of chapter 28 of Leviticus, and the fact that YHVH says that for committing these ‘abominations’ the land literally “vomited out” those inhabitants. And then He then continues, that “YOU shall be set-apart, For I YHVH am ‘qadosh.’

And looking at the news, and the fact that virtually EVERY SINGLE transgression and outright abomination He outlines is now being subsidized, taught in the cesspools, and even mandated as political correctness – AmeriKa, and most of the West, are due for judgment, if not extreme vomiting out.

What does that say to the rest of us?

Parsha “Acharei Mot – ULB” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Acharei Mot” (Leviticus chapters 16 through 18) is typically read in the timeframe of the Passover, and the week of the ‘Feast of Unleavened Bread,’ or Chag HaMaMatzot, but seems to have more to do with a major element of the Fall Feasts – the Day of Atonement.

The Moed of First Fruits is arguably the day when the Risen Yahushua, as The First Fruit of Adam-kind Himself, made the required offering of Himself for us to Himself, in the place where He has put His Name.

“When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the cohen:

And he shall wave the sheaf before Yahuah, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the cohen shall wave it.

And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he Lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto Yahuah….

And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.” (Leviticus 23:10-12;14)

While Rashi disagrees, and the rabbinic tradition thus ends up with a date which does NOT always fall of the First Day of the week, I contend that (as Yahushua obviously did) the ‘morrow after the WEEKLY Sabbath’ is what the verse means. Which is today (28 April). It is also the day which therefore begins the ‘counting of the Omer’ – seven Sabbaths plus one, or 50 days.

And, perhaps dramatically, if not also ironically, THIS year the ‘sighted new moon’ that marked a “beginning of months” for us (Exodus 12:2) was observed directly by literally millions of witnesses!

The Erev Shabbat reading:

This year there is quite a bit of variance between calendar understandings. Not to mention the fact that the ‘sighted’ new moon this year was a bit more spectacular than usual as well. So Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship has decided to depart from the ‘suggested’ annual Torah cycle reading schedule, and make some observations based on a confluence of events, and teachings.

By now, perhaps it should not surprise us that His Word, and His warnings, are ever-more-important.

Parsha “Metzora” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Metzora” (Leviticus chapters 14 through 15) is almost like “part two” of something many people might tend to skip over anyway.

But don’!

After all, this malady hasn’t been seen in – at least! – many centuries. So how could it possibly be SO relevant to exactly what is happening now?

Start with this question:

How is it that so many people could be duped into injecting something into their bodies that turned out to modify their DNA and destroy their immune system? And many of them even believe two men can have a baby, or that someone who cuts off their genitalia can be magically transformed into some other ‘gender’.

Yet they laugh at people for suggesting that some ancient ritual involving two birds might have something to do with cleansing a skin problem?

You can’t see a ‘virus’, any more than a radio wave. Or a demon. Or a DNA double-helix.

How do we know what is ‘technology,’ and what is ‘magic?’ Or superstition.

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship suggests that the more something in the Bible — especially where there is SO much detail about it! — that doesn’t seem at ALL relevant now, just might end up being vital. Especially when we figure out just what we’re up against.

The Erev Shabbat reading is again about the details:

The Sabbath teaching and midrash lays out the key question. And the conundrum.

Metzora: How can we believe in ‘magic’ but not Scripture?”

Parsha “Tazria” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Here’s another one of those paraschot that just seems to be SO “old testament,” and that has perhpas even been used as a poster child for “done away with.” After all, it’s a ‘disease’ that hasn’t been seen for centuries, except in a few Bible movies, and isn’t really “leprosy” at all, anyway. So who cares?

Which is why Mark suggests we ought to!

Parsha “Tazria” (Leviticus chapters 12 through 13) also at least has something to do with the ‘eighth day,’ when an infant male child is to be circumcised. But it also comes from a section that is ‘politically incorrect,’ in a world that so hates His Word, and then introduces a concept that might be even more “out of favor.”

The Erev Shabbat reading lays out all the sordid details:

The sages suggest that a person being overcome by the malady of ‘tzaraat’ and exiled outside of the camp was a sort of testimony that Elohim Himself was publicly pointing out that individual’s wrongdoing.

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship has suggested in the past that perhaps the “NOT-leprosy” that is described in Scripture, but has not actually been SEEN in centuries might in some ways thus be a type of ‘blessing’ for His people, in that the ‘evil tongue’ might be revealed for what it is, while repentance is still possible.

Such detail about a ‘plague’ that probably hasn’t been seen anywhere on the planet for over a thousand years. And if the ‘evil tongue’ of lashon hora is the proximate cause – you have to wonder why it isn’t more common in today’s world of “calling evil good,” and vice-versa, than ever.

So why no more? And why not – especially – in a time when truly reprobate “leaders” give a whole new understanding to the term “evil tongue,” or lashon hora.. don’t we “unclean, unclean” as bumper music for every fake newscast?

Tazria: Why? They Have NO Shame!”

Parsha “Shmini” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Shmini” (Leviticus chapters 9 through 11) appears to be an unusual combination. It begins on the ‘eighth day,’ with the climax of the consecration of the priests, Aaron and his sons, and only appears to end when “there came forth fire from before YHVH.”

Those same words frame the tragedy of the death of his sons Nadab and Abihu when they offer “strange fire,” which – clearly most importantly – He did NOT command.

Why, then, does He talk about food next?

The Erev Shabbat reading sets the stage:

And the confluence of those events set up the questions. What does ‘strange fire’ even mean? And why did it merit sudden death?

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship suggests that the story of Ezekiel chapters 8 and 9 offers some insight: What was it they “knew, or SHOULD have known?”

It is true that, “to whom much is given, much is expected.” And in Ezekiel 9:6, YHVH does tell the destroying angel to “begin at My sanctuary.”

But, wait – we don’t have a temple, or even a mishkan, any more. No priests, either, to hold to a higher standard. And any issues about “ritual purity” and food don’t fit any more, either.

Maybe that’s another indicator. Especially now.

With the ‘next bioweapon release’ seemingly at-hand, not to mention the biggest economic meltdown in history, and an attempted nuclear escalation of mention WW 3, doesn’t it seem far less insane to trust YHVH rather leaders who have demonstrated a desire to serve Death?

And since there are things on the horizon that we cannot control, doesn’t it make sense to obey Him as best we can in the things we can?

Parsha “Tzav” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Tzav” (Leviticus chapters 6 through 8) begins with the word ‘command,’ but this time specifically Aaron and his sons, having to do with some more detail of the offerings that they are going to make.

And, again, there is something for us to learn here, too, but it starts with a realization, and an understanding: Not only does the ‘mishkan,’ or tabernacle there in the wilderness no longer exist, and neither do either of the two later temples, but today, there no ‘kohenim’ to make those offerings, either.

The Erev Shabbat reading:

This is a year where “calendar variants’ loom large. Variants of the roman church are talking about ‘easter’ this weekend, while some of the more ‘equinox-oriented’ calendar variants among those seeking to return to Torah have Pesach in this same timeframe, while others, including those waiting for’abiv’ barley, and most rabbinic Jewish reckonings, based on the Hillel calendar, will observe Pesach closer to the end of April.

So there is almost a one-month spread this year, and – perhaps ironically – the Big Total Solar Eclipse on April 8th falls right in between.

Mark Call looks at a number of ‘indicators’ that are either “signs” that judgment is at hand, or of a nation gone insane.

Or all of the above.

But he noted up front that he is, “no longer surprised how many times,” over recent years, we’ve heard reports that another Red Heifer ‘candidate’ has been found, and is being examined in Israel. Including, it seems, now. Usually with a reminder that procedures are being put in place to dedicate an altar, and resume some sort of “temple operations,” which turns out to be a source of excitement, anxiety, and certainly great division among those who fancy themselves ‘Bible believers.’

Is this a “good thing,” or a “bad thing?” And what about the ‘third temple’ prophecies?

Almost always, too, the claims from some version of the Book of Hebrews that those “silly jews don’t know that ‘jesus christ’ DID AWAY WITH all of that!’ And the ‘red heifer’ is now nothing but superstition, because that’s the ‘whole point of EASTER.’

Which is, of course, the reason why it’s important to understand what Scripture actually says about all of the ‘controversy,’ and in what ‘sacrifices’ He says, “I do NOT delight.”

Parsha “Vayikra” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This week marks the first parsha in the Book of Vayikra, or Leviticus (Lev. chapters 1 through 5), where the reading beings with descriptions of several different types of offerings, and how they are to be done.

Many here are probably already aware that there is a difference between “sacrifice” (tzebach) and “offering” (korbon) and that Shaul/Paul actually supported and performed those associated with the end of the Nazerite vow (Acts 21:23-26). But that is only part of what is at best “incomplete” about the significance of His plan as taught in ‘sun-day school’.

Because what is perhaps most interesting, however, and certainly overlooked, is the fact that these are specifically for what amounts to “UN-intentional” sin. Leaving a major ‘gap in the picture.

The Erev Shabbat reading:

Which is where the Sabbath Day midrash begins. Because if there is SO much discussion of the kind of ‘sin’ that might be accomplished by different people by mistake, or in ignorance, and what should then be done, what does that say about intentional, deliberate REBELLION to him; intentional sin?

The answer is – not much. Well, explicitly anyway. Almost as if His Instruction paints a complete picture, by drawing an outline all around, and leaving something for us to figure out. As if it should be obvious.

What could be the nature of a ‘sacrifice’ for deliberate, knowing rebellion to YHVH Himself?

And if these “sacrifices” have been “done away with,” anyway, what do they have to tell us now?

Perhaps most ‘ironic’ is the misunderstanding of what is referenced in Hebrews chapter 10. No wonder it’s so easy to twist a letter written by a Hebrew to other Hebrews if people don’t understand the basics.

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for an examination of the specifics of vital distinctions that speak volumes – especially when they are ignored! Starting with Hebrews 10:26. Which may be one of the most clear warnings to the “Clergy Response Team” in Scripture!
