Parsha “Vayetze”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

Join Mark Call for a look at parsha, “Vayetze,” Genesis 28:10 through 32:3, which beings the story of Yakov’s (Jacob) journey (“and he went out”) via his famous vision, his wives, his sons, and his strengthening faith, in truth.

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, we hear the story in sequence, and Mark takes a look at aspects that are not only too often ‘overlooked’ by much of the ‘mainstream’, but even some things that just don’t translate well from the original Hebrew:

The Sabbath Day teaching is more about “Yakov’s journey,” but in a way that is intended to show just how important the lessons he learned, and is teaching us, are in a world where our threats may seem much greater, but the solution remains the same.

Parsha “Chayei Sarah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, November 4th, 2018

Join Mark Call for a look at parsha, “Chayei Sarah,” Genesis 23:1 through 25:18, which he describes as including THE pre-eminent “common law textbook” stories in the entire Torah.

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, Mark Call again looks at the entire parsha, from the “life of Sarah,” and then her death and burial, through those stories that formed the basis for the common law concepts of “contract law,” and then marriage, and finally the idea of “agency,” power of attorney, or what the Bible means by a good and faithful servant who “comes in the name of,” his master.

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark looks initially and a bit more deeply into the elements of the story of Abraham’s purchase of the Cave of Machpelah and the first recorded land transfer deed in history, and the elements of what we see a “good and faithful servant,” who goes to do his master’s will, in his name, should look like.

And, now, just how far those twin pillars of a just society — Trust, and the Rule of Law –have been undermined.

How better to destroy that society? And how can we begin to rebuild those elements?

Parsha “Ki Tetzi”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 26th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Ki Tetzi,” (Deuteronomy 21:10 through all of chapter 25), which AGAIN seems to literally exemplify so much of what is ABSOLUTELY WRONG with the western world today, especially because this is so politically INcorrect that it speaks volumes!

The Erev Shabbat overview starts with the concept of the “war bride,” and that’s just for starters…

For several weeks running now, the Sabbath Day teaching is arguably even more NOT ‘politically-correct’ than the week before. And this time, there needs to be an “<strong>adult content” warning</strong> as well, since the topics include marriage, sexuality, virginity, and a few things that will be even more offensive to a world which genuinely seems to HATE His Word, especially “as Written”.

From ‘transgenderism’ and ‘sodomy’ to the issue of multiple wives, there is plenty in Scripture that is so at odds with what men say He SHOULD have said if He was as smart as they think they are, it’s no wonder the world is such a mess.

The emphasis, however, MUST be on what is actually Written. What we have “heard it said” is NOT necessarily what He Wrote, for our blessing. So, be like the Bereans (Acts 17:11).

“Ki Tetzi: Fraud Covenant Marriage and Divorce, and the fact that all this is <em>SO</em> ‘NOT PC’ speaks volumes!”

Parsha “Shoftim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 19th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Shoftim,” (Deuteronomy 16:18 through 21:9), which seems to literally encapsulate most of what is ABSOLUTELY WRONG with the western world today!

The Erev Shabbat overview of course begins with the commandment to select righteous (in other words, Torah-obedient) judges, or ‘shoftim’, to the end that “justice, JUSTICE!” you shall pursue.

Those who have been following what passes for “just-us” nowadays will recognize just how far we have fallen. And the rest of the parsha truly brings that home.

The Sabbath Day teaching is perhaps even more NOT ‘politically-correct’ than last week, to the extent that Mark demonstrates how the command in the last verse in the parsha, literally the one-line summary, is to “<em>do what is RIGHT in the eyes of YHVH</em>.”

Not only has ‘the world’ now gone beyond merely what the Book of Shoftim (Joshua) suggests is a Big Problem, “every man did that which was right in HIS OWN EYES,” but the opposite extreme now has become an overt attempt to “do that which is downright EVIL in the eyes of Him they so clearly hate!”

The title again lays out the premise:

“Shoftim: The Definition of PC is ‘do that which is <em>Evil</em> in His eyes!”

Parsha “Matot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Matot,” (Numbers 30:2 through chapter 32), including what turns out to be one of THE most relevant and important — and openly violated — commandments in the whole Book!

The Erev Shabbat overview, from the statute (or “chuk”) about VOWs, and what Mark describes as “covering” in marriage – to the story of the destruction of the Midianites and why all that first part really matters:

SSM “Matot” 2018

Alternate link, via Hebrew Nation Radio:

Warning: Adult Content, and NOT only NOT “Politically-Correct,” but downright offensive to those who love Lies More than Truth. The title speaks volumes…

The Sabbath Day teaching picks up the theme of Broken Vows, Lies, and False Witness…because it is hard to imagine a more timely parsha than one which warns against what AmeriKa-with-a-K now rubs in our faces. Picture a Swamp Crocodile smirking while lying through big, vicious teeth, and you have a good clue where Mark is heading.

Parsha “Chukat”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

This week, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship  teaches parsha “Chukat,” (Numbers chapters 19 through 21) and THE element described as the very essence of what a “chuk” is — aka “statute”, but really, ‘just DO IT because your Creator said to.’ This one is particularly poignant, because not only are the lessons NOT “done away with”, or obsolete, but some understanding of death is central to loving life, and living it in spite of challenges and worse.

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with that most famous, and perplexing ‘chuk’ of the Red Heifer. But it turns out that the story is far more intricate, and interconnected, than we may have thought.

Alternative link to the Erev Shabbat teaching via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching this week comes with a warning up front, because not only is the primary subject of this parsha DEATH, but Mark more than suggests that “death” has become so ingrained in this culture and ‘the church’ that the warnings, the metaphor, the ‘picture’ that YHVH is painting here has not only been lost in twisting and idolatry, but turned on its head.

Parsha “Naso”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Naso,” (Numbers 4:21 through chapter 7) and what is perhaps not only one of the longest weekly portions in the Torah, but one that tends to confuse a lot of people who are trying to “come out of her,” for quite a few reasons.

The Erev Shabbat overview lays out some of the reasons why that is, as Mark looks at the entire parsha in order. (And for those who have asked about why the Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship is NOT a 501c(3) Big-Brother blessed corporate creation, that is addressed briefly up front here as well!)

 

 

The Sabbath Day teaching this week focuses primarily on the two ‘central’ themes in this parsha, the process concerning the wife who MAY, or may not, be guilty of adultery, and the Nazerite vow…and how it is that while neither of them may still be practicable, both are still central to understanding what Yahushua DID, and did NOT, do, and how we have “inherited lies from our fathers” about most of it.

“Naso: the Sota, the Nazerite Vow, and the Big Lie”

Parsha “Emor”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the parsha “Emor” (Leviticus chapters 21 through 24) and addresses “head-on” the issue of why what He Wrote about a line of priests that we have been told – erroneously – no longer matters, still does.

The Erev Shabbat overview focuses on WHO the people are that YHVH says to “Speak” (Emor) to, starting with the “kohenim,” or ‘priests,’ meaning the sons of Aaron. They are not to defile themselves with death. They are to be “qadosh” — holy, perhaps, but more accurately “set apart” to Yahuah. There are specifications for sexuality, and marriage, and even some pretty “politically-incorrect” formulations for how He wants those who serve Him to be.

The fact that such a priesthood doesn’t really exist any more (for reasons that are key to our understanding as well) only help make the point about why all of this still matter anyway!

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the major themes of the portion, from the continuing issue of why it still matters at all, to how the specifications for His “set-apart” priesthood pretty well eliminate most of the doctrine of ‘churchianity’ from having anything to do with it.

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and addresses a whole lot of “xtian doctrine” that may sell on sun-god-day, but turns Scripture literally upside-down.

 

<strong><em>Note: Obviously, more NOT “PC” Content. Some ‘priests of another god’ may be offended. But it isn’t like the Messiah didn’t warn all of us in advance anyway.</strong>

“Mishpatim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, 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 …

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 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.

“Vayashev”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a shift to a ‘new’ character, Yosef (Joseph) and his dreams, his enslavement, and his imprisonment. (Parsha “Vayashev,” (Genesis 37 through 40:23)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching again covers the story itself, and how almost everything about this character signals that there is far more going on here than meets the eye.

SSM Vayashev 2017

 

That concept is expanded during the following Sabbath Day teaching.  In particular, there are not only so many elements of this parsha that are “politically-incorrect”, the lesson is a virtual tour of why just about everything this world values is either on fire, being revealed as a Big Lie, or literally headed to a Hell-on-Earth.

There is certainly a choice to be made.

“Vayashev:
Discern — Righteous Tamar or Potiphar’s adulterous wife; time to ‘Man UP!’ “
