“Terumah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

February 18th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a look what SOME might call one of the most detailed, and therefore boring portions in the Torah. (they often lie, of course…) Parsha “Terumah,” Exodus 25:1 through 27:19).

It’s also a lead-pipe cinch that there’s much more to this one “than meets the eye”.

First, the Erev Shabbat overview — and some of the many reasons why:

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is a Whole Different Deal than usual, for that reason. Mark is generally wary of <em>over-spiritualizin'</em> the Bible; sometimes, however, we miss the point if we FAIL to see that there’s more than detail in the detail. Yes, he does sometimes get a bit “nerdy” – but in this case, maybe that’s the point.

“Mishpatim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

February 11th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a look at one of the most politically INcorrect (and thus vital, albeit among the “most twisted”) portions in the entire Torah: Parsha “Mishpatim,” Exodus chapters 21 through 24.

First, the Erev Shabbat overview …

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again continues the in-depth exploration of the major ‘themes’ in part of the Book of Exodus, from an understanding of the difference betweeen Hebrew ‘bondservice’ and the truly cruel bondage of “pagan slavery, to marriage, to literally ALL of the key elements of what once formed the basis of the “Common Law”.

More importantly, however, this parsha gives us a cogent synopsis of just WHY neither the “New World Order” nor the “New Age” are at all new, and why things are rapidly building to the only possible conclusion.

“Mishpatim: Welcome to Babylon!!!”

Warning: Adult content and language. YHVH does NOT “pull His punches,” or hide His Truth. Neither should we, even if ‘the world,’ and the Whore Church is offended by what He has Written for us. And Yahushua warned us that He would offend ‘many’…and worse.

“Yitro”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

February 4th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa another of those truly “pivotal” stories in all of human history, which begins with the arrival of Moses’ father-in-law, Yitro (not to be confused with Jethro Bodine) and includes the voice of YHVH from Mt. Sinai, and the giving of the “Ten Words/Sayings/Commandments” (Parsha “Yitro,” Exodus 18:1 through chapter 20)…
SOME of which, says the ‘church’ may still even apply today!

Warning: Adult content and language. Mark makes it clear that sometimes the truth must be blunt and unambiguous.  No punches pulled this week!

“B’shalach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

January 28th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the story of one of the most famous miracles in the whole Book — the parting of the “red sea” (or Sea of Reeds, take your pick). Perhaps more importantly, there’s a WHOLE lot more to this story, that begins at the end of the plagues, and really kicks off the genuine “exodus”. (Parsha “B’shalach,” Exodus 13:17 through chapter 17)

SSM B’shalach 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again continues the recent look at a few of the major ‘themes’ in the story of the Exodus, with a reprise of the concept of the “Minimum Necessary Miracle, and including the idea of “bookends” that might be playing out now, as we look toward the “Greater Exodus,” or Regathering, yet to come…

“Fear not, stand still, and SEE the Salvation of YHVH…”

“Bo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

January 21st, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the conclusion of the story of the ‘Ten Plagues’  (or 3 x 3 + 1) that begins the story of the Exodus. (Parsha “Bo,” Exodus 10:1 through 13:16)

These teachings are available live each week via Paltalk, in the “Walking Torah with Shabbat Shalom Mesa” room (interactively, via www.paltalk.com) and also simulcast at
http://cp3.shoutcheap.com:2199/start/lindcall/

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with the final two plagues in the “three sets”, locusts, and darkness which can “even be felt,” and culminates with the unique, separately-prophesied death of the firstborn. Oh, and there’s a pretty detailed description of the “prototype” — the first Pesach (“Passover”) — in there, too, even though much of churchianity prefers to ignore the part where He says, over and over even, to remember it, teach it, and keep it, “throughout your generations,” as a “chukat olam,” or statute forever.

SSM Bo 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again examines in greater detail just a few of the major ‘themes’ in this parsha, from those final plagues to at least a few of the concepts in the haftorah (Jeremiah chapter 47)…
…to the somewhat fascinating idea of darkness which can even be felt. And if that sounds like something that may have more than just “metaphorical” significance today, you’ll enjoy this discussion.

“Bo: Darkness Then and Now”

“Vayeira”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

January 14th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the second parsha in the Book of Exodus, and the first in the famous story of the Ten Plagues. (Parsha “Shemot,” Exodus 6:2 through 9:35)

The Erev Shabbat overview not only tells the story, but points out how SO MUCH of what is contained in this portion literally “plants the seeds” — reverberates — throughout the rest of Scripture. And it has so much to teach us about “human nature,” but even more importantly, His as well.

SSM Vayeira 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week attempts to take one of the most information-packed and “theme-intense” stories in the Torah, and connect more than a few Disparate Dots.

Yes, we may be on the brink of seeing the “bookends” of this story play out. If there are plagues ahead, it’s important to at least have some clue as to what they may look like. Perhaps more importantly, what about “Free Will”? (Did Pharoah really have a choice about the role he played? Maybe that’s an “easy one,” but it leads to other more critical clues…)

“Shemot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

January 7th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the first parsha in the Book of Exodus, by the same name in Hebrew “Shemot”. (Parsha “Shemot,” Exodus 1:1 through 6:1)

The Erev Shabbat overview gives us an introduction to the descent of the descendents of Yakov into bondage, under a pharoah who “did not know Yosef,” and into the first two-thirds of the live of Moshe/Moses as well. (there’s also a major “first proof” up front in there of why the Official Big Brother Approved Romans 13 Bible is so just-plain-wrong, too.)

SSM Shemot 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is about why this “introduction to the Exodus” is SO important, and why Mark suggests (and that’s what a “look ahead” into prophecy and patterns always is, as opposed to ‘doctrine’!) that we may be on the brink of seeing the “bookends” of this story play out. There’s a reason to be excited about the times in which we live, especially if they may be among the most pivotal in all of human history!

“Shemot: Introduction to the Exodus, AND…
…why we are blessed to live ‘in such a time as this‘ “

“Vayechi”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

January 2nd, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the parsha in the Book of Bereshiet/Genesis – “Vayechi”. (Parsha “Vayechi,” Genesis 47:28 through the end).

The Erev Shabbat overview concludes with first the end of the life of Yakov, and his blessings to both Ephraim and Manasseh, and then the other sons forming the “twelve tribes,” followed by the end of Yosef as well:

SSM Vayechi 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week looks at the end of the Book of Genesis, the prophetic blessings of the sons of Yakov, and what might even be called “post-Genesis GAP theory” —
just how did they end up in that kind of bondage anyway?

And can we see how elements that resulted in the northern kingdom (divided Israel) both splitting from Judah, and then ending in bondage and exile, ought to look so incredibly familiar.

“Vayigash”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

December 24th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the thrilling climax of at least MOST of the story of the “Suffering Servant,” Yosef/Joseph, and how THE Plan of YHVH continues to play out, with Judah demonstrating what it means to “MAN UP!” — resulting in restoration of the brothers and their houses, lives saved, and — ultimately — a descent into bondage. (Parsha “Vayigash,” Genesis 44:18 – 47:27. And a look at the haftorah in Ezekiel 37, and a bit of Ephesians 5, too.)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is about the final installment of the journey to Mitzraim (Egypt) and the restoration saga, but with a perhaps disturbing implication:

SSM Vayigash 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is focused on a specific aspect of the story of the man who represents a picture or aspect of the Meshiach to come. How is it that the very same man who literally saves the entire house of Israel, and was sent to “preserve life” at the same time looks to his brothers like a pagan, and ultimately initiates a process that leads to bondage?

The answer seems to relate to cycles that repeat, whether we like it or not, and what might seem like a contradiction (Ephesians chapter 5, or Ezekiel 37?) if we don’t look at the ‘bigger picture’ – in context. Especially in a ‘season’ like today.

“Mikketz”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

December 17th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the continuing saga of the “Suffering Servant,” Yosef/Joseph, and how THE Plan of YHVH continues to play out, in the second part of a series of parsha “cliff-hangers”. (Parsha “Mikketz,” Genesis 41:1 – 44:17. And a look at I Maccabees, and Zechariah 2-4, too.)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching again covers the story itself, from Pharoah’s TWO dreams to the ‘cliff-hanger,’ as at least PART of Yosef’s plan — but not evidently YHVH’s —
comes to a conclusion.

SSM Miketz 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again really covers a LOT of ground. How interesting is it that this parsha usually coincides with the time of Chanukah? (And, yes, there’s a LOT of ‘tradition’ around this one, but that’s only PART of the story!)

Yosef’s story is that of a man who looks a look like a “harbinger”, or “type/shadow”, if you prefer, of at least one potential picture of the Meshiach then still yet-to-come. And while he literally brings ‘salvation’, to “preserve life” — what happens thereafter is a people who descend into slavery.

Why were there (so far as we know) not any “Egyptian Preppers?”

The answer to THAT question seems to tie, Mark suggests, closely to the OTHER story that fits in so many ways for this “time and season” — the tyranny and Evil of yet another time in history where the parallels, and the lessons, are too important, even if unsavory, to be ignored.

“Mikketz: I Love it when a PLAN comes together…
Messiah, and NOT…and what does <em>that </em>have to do wih Channukah? “
