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:

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.

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.

“Chukat: Death Forces – and cycles of cleansing by Blood – Water – Word “

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”

Both teachings are combined here and available for download:

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!’ “

“Vayetzei”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the first installment of the story of Yakov/Jacob’s journey, from his first direct encounter with Yahuah to the place where he later spends 20 years and acquires the family from which come the twelve tribes of Israel. (Parsha “Vayetzei,” Genesis 25:19 – 32:3)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is covers the story itself, how his encounter with YHVH might seem to be during one of the most difficult and fearful times of his life, so far, and then how he comes to have wives, children and flocks, and a legacy which spans millenia.

SSM Vayetzei 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week really covers a lot of ground. Yes, this is a “politically incorrect” parsha, which again makes clear that what Yahuah Wrote for us is often very divergent from men have subsequently decided to REwrite for Him. But this is a particularly important Torah lesson for us today, because it can teach us how to deal with fear and massive change in our own lives.

Mark looks at many of the things happening in our world today that demonstrate the “scale of Evil” we face, and the choices that result. Will we trust in Him, as Yakov did, or “<em>return to our place</em>” in failure, as Laban demonstrated?

“Vayetzei – Fear NOT in a world full of fear:
from food and marriage to ‘rapture,’ ‘flat earth,’ and silver “

“Chayei Sarah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a final look at the story of Abraham, and his wife Sarah, but perhaps more importantly at perhaps THE pre-eminient parsha when it comes to ‘Legal Precedent’.    (Parsha “Chayei Sarah,”  Genesis 23:1 – 25:18)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is an examination of what it literally THE primary story that underlies major concepts of what was once understood to be the Common Law:
Contract, Agency – or ‘power of attorney,’ and Marriage.

SSM Chayei Sarah 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching connects all of that to the lessons of the “Torah Made Flesh,” Who came in His Father’s Name, to DO His Father’s will. How can we possibly know what it means for US each to seek to be a “good and faithful servant,” if we don’t understand the precedents He shows us?

“ChayeiSarah — Legal Precedent, and why it’s ALL about someday hearing,
‘Well done, good and faithful servant’ “

“Bereshiet ”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa looks at the Scriptures associated with the end of the regular annual Torah cycle, and The Beginning of the next. From “V’zot Ha Bracha,” at the end of Deuteronomy, the time of “Simcha Torah,” is about the joy of this season, and the new beginning as we start — well, CONTINUE, our study into Genesis.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look first at Deuteronomy chapters 33 and 34, which includes both the end of the life of Moses, and the five Books of the Torah as well, and then continues into The Beginning again, into Bereshiet (chapters 1 through part of 6, even).

SSM Vzot HaBracha – Simcha Torah – Bereshiet – 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching is an acknowledgement that there is FAR too much just in the first few characters of Bereshiet/Genesis for a single study, and that’s just the beginning. So Mark focuses on the “WHY?”

Why is THIS portion so FUNDAMENTAL, so vital to us NOW, and, therefore, so reviled by ‘the world’ in general.

We see IN-credible Big Whoppin’ Lies being foisted – from the Very First Two Lies in Scripture, to the rebellion and failure of “covering” and responsibility that accompanied them, to the consequences – which STILL form the basis — the Rock — for all that follows.

“Bereshiet – Why? How else can we build, line-by-line, precept by precept, upon the Rock?”

“Ki Tetzi”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches parsha “Ki Tetzi” this week, from Deuteronomy 21:10 through all of chapter 25.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look at probably THE most “concentrated” group of decidedly NOT ‘politically-correct’ commandments and instructions in the whole Torah. No wonder so many of us have been taught that not only has it been “done away with”, but it didn’t matter anyway.

And the more we hear lies like that, the more important it is to “search out” the Scripture for ourselves, and see what the Truth is.

SSM Ki Tetzi 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week continues that theme, and even includes a bit more “Markology” than usual. (In other words, “your mileage may vary”. When it comes to the question of “WHY?” Scripture often gives us a number of dots…Mark’s understanding is one way to connect them. See for yourself regarding the pattern, and the consistency.)

But the bottom line is undeniable, even if most of This World chooses to deny it:

Ki Tetzi: Father Knows Best!
