“Terumah” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, March 6th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for another two-part look at this week’s Torah portion (parsha “Terumah”, Exodus 25:1 through 27:19).

The Erev Shabbat overview introduces the first detail concerning the Mishkan (‘tabernacle’) and begins a look at why this apparent “digression” from the main story happens NOW:

SSM Terumah 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is itself a digression of a sort, since it seems that — like the ancient Israelites — we, too, are at a major crossroads, and a story that seems to have paused, while heading for a climax.  There’s FAR more here than might meet the eyes, from pi to parables:

Why THIS digression, now?

 

“B’shalach” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for this two-part look at the many lessons contained in one of the most famous stories in the Book, the “parting of the Red Sea” (OK, See of Reeds).

The Erev Shabbat complete story overview:

SSM B’shalach 2017

 

Are we “Goin’ out, or comin’ IN?” One thing is for sure, though, the ‘human condition’ hasn’t changed, and arguably YHVH will STILL have “war with Amalek,” throughout even our generations. And THAT is a key to where we are, too.

Stand still and See! — the human condition and cycles continue

 

“Shemot” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for this two-part look at the first parsha in a new book, Exodus, aka “Shemot” (Ex. 1:1-6:1)

The Erev Shabbat complete story overview:

SSM Shemot 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching addresses the story of so many people in Scripture — especially in this parsha — who “feared God” more than Pharoahs, Popes, or even Presidents, and disregarded the Authorized Clergy Response Team Official IRS-Approved Version of Romans 13 — “as Twisted.”

Shemot – Midwives – and the Clergy Response Team Romans 13 Big Lie

“Vayishlach” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, December 18th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa two teachings on the parsha this week, Vayishlach (Genesis 32:3 through chapter 36).

From the messengers that Yakov (Jacob) sends to see what his brother Esau is up to, and the encounters that follow, this is a story of fear, faith, reconciliation, and ultimately prophecy.

SSM 12-16-16 Vayishlach

 

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark explores some of the connections between that story, and

“Hearsay, oral tradition, false witness, and bald-faced lies”

“Ki Tetzi” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

SSM Erev Shabbat 2016 “Ki Tetzi”Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Ki Tetzi” (Deuteronomy 21:10 – 25:19).

Note: These are available every Shabbat during the on-line services at 6:30 PM Mountain Time, and the Sabbath Day teaching broadcast live via links in both Paltalk and Shoutcheap.

The Erev Shabbat overview includes one of the most “surprising”, and even shocking, to those of us who ‘inherited lies’ that these instructions no longer matter, set of commandments in all of His Torah. There IS, of course, a reason, to “let Elohim be True, and every man a liar…”

SSM Erev Shabbat 2016 “Ki Tetzi”

The Sabbath teaching requires a warning:

Not only is this section of Scripture NOT “politically correct”, it is a graphic demonstration of how far gone a culture which hates Yah has become. Buckle up for this one.

“Do you STILL stone your kids?!”

 

“Shoftim” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Ekev” (Deuteronomy 7:12 – 11:25).

  • Note: These are available every Shabbat during the on-line services at 6:30 PM Mountain Time, and the Sabbath Day teaching broadcast live via links in both Paltalk and Shoutcheap.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching this week is one that just seems to literally “set Mark off”! To compare what “Justice, justice YOU SHALL PURSUE,” means with what has happened INSTEAD today should infuriate anyone with “eyes to see.”

SSM “Shoftim” 2016

The Sabbath Day teaching starts at the same place, and goes literally everywhere ELSE. If the US has the “best just-us system” in a world heading directly to hell-on-earth, what does THAT say?

How can those who literally “hate Him,” and reject His Word from courts, congress, skools, and Ovaloid-shaped offices, claim even remotely to be ‘righteous judges’?

Most importantly, though, is the message from the haftorah (Isaiah 51-52). WAKE UP!!! “Listen to Me, you who KNOW righteousness, people in whose heart is My Torah!”
” Shoftim – and the Best LEGAL System fake money can buy in a satanic world”

 

“Re’eh” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, September 5th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Re’eh” (Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17).

  • Note: These are available every Shabbat during the on-line services at 6:30 PM Mountain Time, and the Sabbath Day teaching broadcast live via links in both Paltalk and Shoutcheap.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching this week again emphasizes what He does: Because you are obedient, these things will come to pass! But He again emphasizes that it is vital that we “shemar”, or “hear AND obey” His statutes, judgments, commandments, and instruction.

SSM Re-eh 2016

 

The Sabbath Day teaching – like the parsha – begins with the admonition: Behold! See! Check it out! Open your eyes! And that is every bit as important now as it has ever been.

It’s downright amazing to think that there are people who would deny just how deep the true idolatry in Amerika, and the whole Greater Babylon Metro Area, goes. But Big Brother is just another in a long historic train of false Big Fake Gods. And as the deception deepens, the CHOICE of Who we serve remains OURS.

Behold! The Choice!

“Pinchas” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 31st, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Pinchas” (Numbers chapter 25 through 29).

Note: These are available every Shabbat during the on-line services at 6:30 PM Mountain Time, and the Sabbath Day teaching broadcast live via links in both Paltalk and Shoutcheap.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching this week begins with what is arguably one of the most “problematic” stories in Scripture, of the ‘zealot’ Pinchas (Phineas) — who without hesitation kills two people “in the act” — and simultaneously stays a plague that had already killed 24,000 people. How does what follows fit in?

SSM Pinchas 2016

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the real issue of “zealotry”. Clearly such actions are perilous. When does it “cross the line”?

“Jealous? Or ‘zealous’? Listening to the ‘still small voice’

“Balak” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, July 25th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Balak” (Numbers 22:2 through 25:9).

  • Note: These are available every Shabbat during the on-line services at 6:30 PM Mountain Time, and the Sabbath Day teaching broadcast live via links in both Paltalk and Shoutcheap.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching this week is unique among the stories in the Torah for several reasons, including the fact that it focuses not on Moses, Aaron, and the ‘children of Israel,’ but two pagan characters, Balak and Balaam. But their connections to “kol Israel ” then and ‘Scattered Israel’ NOW are too important to overlook.

SSM Balak 2016

The Sabbath Day teaching starts where the story seems to leave off. There are truly “tough choices” ahead, and the pitfalls associated with “Baal Peor” haven’t changed much, either.

“Balak? Or Barak?

 

“Shelach Lekha” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 3rd, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Beha’alotcha” (Numbers chapter 13 through 15).

  • Note:  These are available every Shabbat during the on-line services at 6:30 PM Mountain Time, and the Sabbath Day teaching broadcast live via links in both Paltalk and Shoutcheap.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching includes the story of another one of the most difficult incidents in the Torah, as well as the first recorded attempt at “democracy” in recorded history.  It is a tough lesson, but one that remains vital to our understanding today:

Shelach 2016

The Sabbath Day teaching combines elements from at least two disparate, but very much related, turning points in history:

the story of the ‘spies’ and the First Recorded Vote in history,

and the signing of the Declaration of Independence,

both of them arguably even more crucial today than ever:

“Why not believe Him?”
