“Nitzavim” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Nitzavim” (Deuteronomy 29:10 – 30:20).

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 another one that just seems to literally “set Mark off” — because it is not only one of THE most important “two-word summaries” of Scripture in the Torah, but because it so clearly rebuts some of the biggest lies we have been told!

SSM Nitzavim 2016

The Sabbath Day teaching is literally a matter of life and death.  And, we are standing today, “on the cusp,” a time to choose life!

You are STANDING on the CUSP…now, like never before…so Choose Life!

 

“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!

“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.

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?

 

“Chukat” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Chukat” (Numbers chapter 19 through 21).

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 describes what has been called THE most “enigmatic mystery” [‘chuq’ or “statute”] in Scripture:

Just what is that red heifer thing all about?

But it turns out that’s just the beginning of the story!

SSM Chukat 2016

The Sabbath Day teaching takes a look in detail into why “mysteries” — or statutes — that might seem confusing, or downright uncomfortable, have been claimed “done away with” instead!

“Acharei Mot” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa from the mountains of southern Colorado for an in-depth examination of this week’s Torah portion, the related haftorah (Ezekiel 22) and how it is still every bit as relevant, even when we remain in exile, as it has been throughout history.

Warning: Not only does this week’s parsha contain “adult content”, but it also may be unsuitable for ‘milk drinkers’.

First, the Erev Shabbat teaching, where Mark generally covers the entire parsha (Leviticus chapters 16 through 18) from start to finish:

Acharei Mot 2016

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark “takes off the gloves” (OK, even more than usual ? ) and tackles the utterly politically-INcorrect elements of this part of Scripture in particular that show why so many of the lies we have “inherited from our fathers” are not only exactly that — but lead to Death:

Love is NOT all there is: The subtle and NOT so subtle reasons for “discrimination”

 

The Vaccine God

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

One of the exercises that I have on occasion indulged is that of trying to guess just which “plagues” will soon, or at least eventually, be visited on a world which has no shortage of modern false gods that the Real Creator of the universe might want to hold up to ridicule.

Would they include destroying the Almighty Fiat Dollar?  Almost certainly, since “dishonest weights and measures” are repeatedly Written to be an abomination to Him.   How about Monsanto?  The Great God that Feeds the World, albeit with Franken-food.  And there’s Licensed Marriage, now that what He calls abomination is “just as good” as what He ordained, but never required a license to do.  Maybe it’ll be the  Power Grid.   Hollywood?  There’s certainly no shortage of potential candidates.

And, of late, there can hardly be any doubt that the Great God Modern Medicine, and more specifically, the Vaccine Panacea, has got to be pretty high on that list.

For starters, any time you hear pompous politicians prattling about “settled science” who don’t know the difference between a “hypothesis” and a data point, it’s a good bet we’re talking about something a lot closer to another false religion than a Law of Creation.  (Come to think of it, “Man-made Global Warming”, by whatever name they’ll think of next, is almost certain to be one of the early plagues that might be visited upon humanity.   Prepare for colder winters, or maybe storms if you’re closer to the tropics…)

But it’s the incredible level of induced hysteria, and police-state pharmaceutical propaganda, that should more than raise eyebrows today.  If the Almighty Vaccines really DID work as promised, and protect the poke-ee with godlike certainty, then what difference does it make whether anyone else takes the shot or not?   And why would there need to be warnings (in the Fine Print) about side effects?  (Not that their acolytes read those, any more than far too many supposed ‘believers in God’ read His Book.)

And the brouhaha is about measles, for cryin’ out loud!   A once-nearly universal childhood ailment with a virtually zero mortality rate, given modern sanitation standards, that not only confers lifetime immunity once endured, but seems almost to have been designed by Yah to strengthen and develop the immune systems of His children, as post-vaccination cancer rates and other immunological data seems to suggest.    (Note that I don’t try to use the word “prove”, or claim that it is “settled science”!)

Yet there is a clear, concerted effort now to mandate, literally at gunpoint if necessary, universal vaccination for something that was largely a non-issue well BEFORE the vaccine even became available in the 1960s!  (The data, for those with “eyes to see,” is undeniable.  Childhood mortality from measles had declined by over 95% before the vaccine was in use.)

Just wait until there’s a real epidemic to “be afraid, be VERY afraid” of.   Even if, like ebola, it turns out to be a CDC-patented, bio-engineered weapon.

About half of all US states already have legislation proposed to limit or eliminate so-called philosophical or religious exemptions to various vaccine mandates.  What happened to the principle of “informed consent?”  And since when can supposedly “free” people be forced to be injected with ANYTHING against their will?  Perhaps most importantly, just which “god” will prevail here, and can the people called by the Name of YHVH worship Him, or not?

It is important to realize – NOW – that those who enter into agreement with those gods will be held to their vows.  “You are his servant whom you submit yourself to obey,” said Shaul/Paul in Romans  6:16.

Elijah put it this way:  “If YHVH be God, then serve Him.  But if baal be god, serve him.”  We can’t serve both.  And when mandatory injections — containing, ultimately, “God Alone Knows WHAT” — become mandated by the Almighty State, THAT particular plague will become obvious.

Parsha “Vaera” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Join Mark Call for two teachings on this week’s Torah portion, “Vaera” (Exodus 6-9).

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, (Friday evening) Mark again covers the essential aspects of the story, from “<em>Ani YHVH</em>” and what that declaration means, and the subsequent story will emphasize, to through the first seven plagues.

SSM Vaera 2015

The longer teaching from Shabbat is a bit different than usual. While always careful to distinguish between “what is Written”, and what might be called “connecting the dots,” sometimes a little “<em>Markology</em>” is apropos. Because this portion is <strong>SO </strong>connected to our natural concern about what is happening now, and how that might relate to plagues to come, this is the week for it. When the “Greater Exodus” begins, will we recognize the pattern?

Torah portion “Vayera” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Join Mark Call for two related, but different looks at parsha ‘Vayera’ and the story of the first patrairch, Abraham.

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, (Friday evening) Mark covers what some consider one of the most perplexing portions in Scripture chronologically, from Beresheit/Genesis chapter 18 through 22.

The longer teaching from Shabbat again delves specifically into character issues, not only Abraham in contrast with Lot, but in connection to the disturbing parallels to ‘the world’ today.  There’s tremendous good news in this parsha as well, because, “THIS is gonna be SUMPIN” to see!!!”

Mark Call – Parsha “Ha’azinu” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Join Mark Call for two related, but different looks at this week’s Torah portion, Ha’azinu, and the ‘song of Moses’ in Deuteronomy chapter 32.

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, (Friday evening) Mark covers goes over the entire portion, as well as some discussion of Yom Teruah:

The longer teaching from Shabbat concentrates on some specifics of the parsha, the haftorah text, and additional in-depth examination of the coming Fall Feasts, current events in the context of Biblical prophecy, and the repeating cycles that tie it all together.

Mark Call – Parsha “Nitzavim” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Join Mark Call for two related, but different looks at this week’s Torah portion, Nitzavim/Vayelech from Deuteronomy 29:9 through chapter 31.

The first recording is the regular Erev Shabbat teaching, from the Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship, and is an overview of the entire parsha:

If you have ever heard the Incredible Lie that “NOBODY except Jesus Christ could POSSIBLY keep the LAW!” — listen to this one, and then search it out for yourself to see whether He is true, and what men are liars.

The longer teaching from Shabbat concentrates on some specifics of the parsha, which Mark considers to be one of the most “eye-opening” in all of Scripture to those who seek to know WHY we are to keep His Torah, and to debunk some of the most unconscionable lies that we have been told in “sunday school.”  It boils down to “choose life!”
