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

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Re’eh,” (Deuteronomy 11:25 through 16:17), which he initially begins by introducing as the parsha which is front and center when it comes to “Debunking Bogus ‘xtianity’ “.

And the Erev Shabbat overview of course begins there, where Moses begins by say, paraphrased a bit, “Hey, check it out!” or, “Behold!,” or just “See…”
…I set before you a blessing, and a curse…

So choose.

But, perhaps more importantly, THIS is THE parsha that really nails WHY the ‘whore church’ has been so deceived by paganism.

The Sabbath Day teaching will no doubt be one of the most “controversial” – even by Mark’s standard – in some time, because this parsha really DOES encapsulate so much of what the paganized, romanized, 501c(3) Caesar-licensed corporate ‘chuch’ of “another master” has come to preach: “another jesus, whom we have NOT preached…”

But the title lays out the premise.

“Re’eh: The Biggest Lie in the whole ‘Bible’ — well, sorta…”

On a personal note

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

I tool a major fall about a week ago, on a slippery wet ramp here on the mesa ranch, and fell directly on top of my left ankle, as my right leg shot forward.  The result turned out to be that every ligament on the top of my left knee was torn loose.

On Tuesday, August 8th I had surgery, which thankfully went as planned, but also represented a major unexpected out-of-pocket expense.  For those that are so inclined, prayers are very much requested for a complete and successful recovery.  (Rehab will evidently take a minimum of several months, and in the meanwhile, there are chores here on a working small ranch that are falling behind.)

My younger brother has also thoughtfully set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ site as well, with the hope of defraying some of expenses.   (We definitely needed an LP generator for the winter, among other things, that have suddenly turned into sutures.)

New Paltalk Room with Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

This week was the inaugural run of the new Paltalk room for Shabbat Shalom Mesa…

“Walking Torah”.

The live services are every Erev Shabbat (Friday evening) starting at 6:30 PM Mountain Time; the room itself usually opens a half hour to an hour before the services begin, and stays open afterward for fellowship a similar duration.

There is a teaching session on Shabbat (Saturday morning) as well, starting at around 9 AM Mountain time, usually with a recorded teaching, and then a live session with Q & A after that.

This weeks’ MP3 podcasts of the teachings are here:

Time Draws Short

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Scripture tells us that fiat money, not to be confused with silver, or in fact an honest weight of ANYTHING, is an abomination. Deuteronomy 25:16 seems to suggest pretty strongly (by saying “ALL who do such things are an abomination”, too) that we should avoid most of the world’s dishonest currencies. And that, obviously, is far from easy. Surely our Creator did not mean THAT. Given just how pervasive the crooked “money” that is apparently our “only option” for dealing with buying or selling in ‘the world’ has become – what other choice do we have?

 

But perhaps that is just a trick question. Consider how pervasive the internet has become, and how national ID cards, credit ratings, biometrics, and pervasive spying have made what was once called “privacy” – economic or otherwise – pretty much a joke, just like national constitutions and national leaders who think the law applies to them. India is already in the process of instituting a national “mark”; think of it as a “Beta test” for the rest of the world in fairly short order. How long will it be now until no one will be allowed to “buy or sell” without another kind of “mark” – even if they don’t come right out and call it “the Beast”? (Although, given how “in your face” the pervasive hatred of the Bible has become, perhaps that would be no surprise.)

 

And given that it will – just as surely as fiat money today – be the “only option” for buying, selling, and feeding our families – what other choice do we have?

 

But that may ultimately be one of the easier choices to face. Ebola is rapidly emerging as the “be afraid, be very afraid” pandemic that has, and may very well continue, to usher in martial law all over the world, even if the propagandists in many of them will come up with more politically-correct terminology. Perhaps something like “The Police State Loves you, and wants to protect children and puppies. So we’ll shoot on sight and take your last Right.”

 

And let’s not forget World War III. You knew that nothing as trivial as a Constitution, or Congress, or international law, was going to stop the Empire from bombing Syria, didn’t you? And if you’re confused about who “ISIS,” or is it ISIL now? – or Al-CIA-da, or the Muslim Brotherhood is, and whether they’re this week’s allies or last week’s terrorists – don’t worry; that’s by design.

 

History shows that massive currency failures, hyperinflation, depressions, and stock or bond market crashes are generally closely tied to war. After all, the prophet Jeremiah was correct, and the human heart is “desperately wicked..” But the current world debt load is already of “Biblical proportions.” No doubt the aftermath will be as well. And it certainly appears that all of the above crises are approaching their climax in the form of a “perfect storm.” Almost like what Scripture has been warning about will once again turn out to be “right on the money.” Except that the money isn’t right, so the curses too appear to be of Biblical proportions.

 

All of this might sound somewhat negative if we didn’t realize that the REAL God of the Universe (as opposed to those who merely play him on TV) keeps His promises. Without fail. And that even includes chastening those He loves, as a father chastens his son. Sometimes that “tough love” is a real whopper.

 

It would appear that Time Draws Short. Perhaps it is an incredible blessing that His Fall Feasts are almost upon us. There has never been a better time for repentance, and for remembering what is truly important.

 

We can learn to “come out of her.” We can learn – even if it’s hard – to separate ourselves from dishonest money systems, and begin to deal with one another faithfully. And if that system is about to collapse, then it’s about time.

 

We can learn to eat what He says is food, and avoid what is not. Because it brings plagues. And since we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” – with an immune system to fight off not only the “diseases of Egypt” but even those man-made bioweapons that He warned about so clearly in Deuteronomy 28:61 – perhaps we can even choose to trust in Him for our health rather than awaiting the next Miracle from the Elohim of Pharmakeia.

 

We’re eventually gonna have to decide whether we trust in YHVH – REALLY trust in YHVH – or in the ‘gods’ of this world. Those choices will not get any easier.

 

Time draws short.

Legal standards in the Bible

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

This week’s Torah portion, entitled “Chayei Sarah,” or “The life of Sarah”  is really about a whole lot of important legal issues, which formed the basis for British and American “common law” – back when we HAD “law”.

 

From contracts, to “agency” and the concept of “power of attorney”, to why no man of Yah in Scripture EVER got a “marriage license” – this is the first major detailed outline of real Law in Scripture:
