Parsha “Behar/Bechukotai”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the double-portion “Behar/Bechukotai” (Leviticus chapters 25 through 27) that wraps up the Book of Leviticus (Vayikra) and not only speaks volumes about why the “Olde” testament is not only vital to our understanding, but is perhaps THE warning in Scripture that most particularly describes precisely why things are where they are today.

The Erev Shabbat overview, which begins a bit differently this week, because “current events” are so viscerally reflected in the warnings that conclude this Book:

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the major themes of the portion, including what it really means to be “adversarial” to YHVH. (The Hebrew word ‘shatan’, or even HaSatan, “THE adversary” are reflected in English words like ‘satanic’. But that just begins to describe what is outlined here.)

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and addresses not ONLY a whole lot of anti-Scriptural doctrine, but why so much of what is going on as we approach a Cursing Climax of literally “Biblical Proportions” can only be described as outright “Satanic”.

Note:   Obviously, more NOT “PC” Content. If terms like “whore church,” which so explicitly describe much of ‘xtianity today’ are a bit offensive, what this portion says will be downright shocking.

“Behar/Bechukotai”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes an in-depth look at the double portion Behar/Bechukotai, which rounds out the Book of Leviticus (Vayikra) – chapters 25 through the end.

And yet AGAIN, we find another segment in Scripture that we have probably been told is boring, obsolete, irrelevant, and – especially – “done away with,” and perhaps this time there is a bit of truth in that Big Lie.  We are NOT “in the land” any more (as we were warned, it turns out) and the ‘Jubilee’ doesn’t apply, regardless of what the words on the Liberty Bell once said.

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark outline the ‘why’ of all that.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week ties a whole LOT of things that we’re told “no longer matter” together, because evidently they really do after all!  Scripture warns about consequences that get seven times worse, and again seven times more, and continue, until, well, they look a look like what we see developing now.  But there’s “good news,” too.  We don’t have to go all the way there before turning around!

“We DON’T have to wait for the Reset!”

“Bechukotai” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a look at this week’s Torah portion, “Bechukotai,” (Leviticus 26:2 through the end of the Book).

This week the instruction from YHVH begins, with a single key word:
“IF…”

Which is where Erev Shabbat teaching picks up.

Bechukotai 2016

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark delves even more deeply than usual into the question of what possible relevance does THIS instruction – which seems to apply specifically to “the Land” – have to do with us?
