Parsha “Bereshiet”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

This week, Mark Call takes a look at Bereshiet, “In the Beginning,” FROM the Beginning (Genesis 1:1 through 6:8) in what is probably a different way than you’ve ever heard before.

Yes, this is one of the “meatiest” and most truly information-packed portions in the whole of Scripture, and more than enough to occupy (and it has!) literally volumes of study.

But have you considered that the act of Creation, and the creation of mankind, “HaAdam,” in the image of YHVH Himself, has elements that are still in process?

First, the overview from Erev Shabbat, and a look at the many elements that make up the story, from the “Time Domain;” what happened first, and then next. Or is it?

SSM “Bereshiet” for 2018/2019 Torah cycle

During the ‘meat-filled’ Sabbath Day teaching, Mark-the-Engineer again “waxes nerdy,” and hopefully manages to make what “as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be…” (and how we’ll be able to tell) take on a whole new aspect. Don’t let the title scare you off, and don’t miss this one:

“Bereshiet: Free Will plus a bit of Control Theory…
…equals Self-Selection.”

Parsha “Vayelek”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Saturday, September 15th, 2018

The message in the Torah portion for this week (Vayelek, Deuteronomy chapter 31) is an elegant, and concise, summary of what Moshe told those who were about to enter the Promised Land. It’s also an elegant, concise warning that is every bit as vital to understand today, in such as time as this, as it was thousands of years ago.

Join Mark Call for, first, the Erev Shabbat overview teaching of the entire parsha,

and then the Sabbath Day look at how certain aspects of that ancient warning are not only important, but now closer than ever.

Parsha “Nitzavim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

The message in the Torah portion for this week (Netzavim, Deuteronomy 29:9 through chapter 30) is simple, and timeless…
and profound…
…and UTTERLY at odds with much of the ‘doctrine of men’ taught for so long by the paganized whore ‘church’.

And that is why Mark Call suggests – again – that this perfectly clear and consistent summary of SO much of the entire Torah is also ignored.

We are indeed, as the Hebrew title reminds us, “standing” before Yahuah THIS DAY (‘HaYom’) just as our forefathers did, and have a choice to make. The fact that we have been lied to, for generations is still no excuse to fail to choose life!

This parsha, at “such a time as this” may be among the most timely reminders possible, as this Erev Shabbat summary makes clear.

But when it comes to a message that has become the very essence of “politically INcorrect” in a world which would have us fail to prefer life to the culture of death, or even to believe that we have a choice at all, Mark ‘pulls no punches’ (neither does Scripture!) in the follow-on Sabbath Day teaching, when it comes to what “free will” really means, and why those who ‘serve Him alone’ are under such vicious attack.

Yes, it’s “adult material” (for people ready for ‘meat’ as opposed to spoiled milk, if you prefer) — but it’s also about why we have been lied to about what He really says for SO long has never been more vital to know, and to “choose this day Whom you will serve”.

(The recording linked here contains an extended Q & A that followed the teaching, largely focused on current events in light of the concept of choice in a world which hates YHVH.)

Parsha “Ki Tavo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 2nd, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Ki Tavo,” (Deuteronomy 26:1 through 29:8),

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with ‘ki tavo,’ or “when you have come INTO THE LAND” that Yahuah gives to you…offer up first fruits, and that there is an important declaration to be made. It ends with one of the most vivid descriptions in Scripture of why the “lies we have inherited from our fathers” are so deadly.

SSM “Ki Tavo” 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

This Sabbath Day teaching continues the sequence of ever-more NOT ‘politically-correct’ warnings, arguably BECAUSE the curses that we see coming to a climax of literally “Biblical Proportions” today are PRECISELY what was so strongly warned against!

It’s hard to honestly contemplate what ‘the world’ is doing, and has become, and then to read Deuteronomy chapters 28 and 29 and NOT see the connection. But Mark again asks some uncomfortable questions, and points out that there are things we can and SHOULD do “in such a time as this”. There IS a problem with ‘tolerance’ of Evil, and we must “not keep silent”.

“Ki Tavo: Blessings Ignored, or Curses Selected, Natural Consequences, Tolerance – and do NOT Keep Silent”

Parsha “Re’eh”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Re’eh,” (Deuteronomy 11:25 through 16:17), which he initially begins by introducing as the parsha which is front and center when it comes to “Debunking Bogus ‘xtianity’ “.

And the Erev Shabbat overview of course begins there, where Moses begins by say, paraphrased a bit, “Hey, check it out!” or, “Behold!,” or just “See…”
…I set before you a blessing, and a curse…

So choose.

But, perhaps more importantly, THIS is THE parsha that really nails WHY the ‘whore church’ has been so deceived by paganism.

The Sabbath Day teaching will no doubt be one of the most “controversial” – even by Mark’s standard – in some time, because this parsha really DOES encapsulate so much of what the paganized, romanized, 501c(3) Caesar-licensed corporate ‘chuch’ of “another master” has come to preach: “another jesus, whom we have NOT preached…”

But the title lays out the premise.

Parsha “Korach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Korah,” (Numbers chapters 16 through 18) primarily about the most famous “rebellion” in Scripture (with the possible exception of Genesis chapter 3… 😉 )

The Erev Shabbat overview lays out the story, the effects, and some of the key ‘characteristics’ of rebellion to the authority of YHVH, His anointed, and His Word – once expressed ‘in person,’ now largely Written.

SSM “Korach” for 2018 Torah cycle

The Sabbath Day teaching this week takes a deeper look at the whole subject of “rebellion” – and the important related questions that help us understand “against WHO?”

And in this context Mark also takes a look at what may be one of THE most-twisted sets of verses in all of Scripture:

Romans 13, especially from the GIV Bible (Government Inspired Version)

“Korach: Don’t confuse him with Moses”

Parsha “Beha’alotcha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Beha’alotcha,” (Numbers chapters 8 through 12) — another one of those portions that seems to have a lot of disparate, maybe even only loosely-related, elements, from commandments about things that SOUND a bit repetitive, to history that ranges from obscure to fundamental.

The Erev Shabbat overview again looks at the entire parsha in order, and attempts to connect what might seem a bit disparate. And, as is mostly the case, there are some poignant lessons, and no shortage of controversy over what some of them might be.

SSM Beha’alotcha 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching this week may involve even more ‘themes’ than usual. There’s the menorah, the silver trumpets, the substitution of the Levites for the first-born, and more than a little whining.

This time, though, Mark suggests there’s a connection in all of these elements, as well as not only the haftorah reading (from Zecharia chapters 3 and 4) and more than a bit of Revelation, that all connects, and ultimately speaks to us today more than perhaps any generation in a millenium. And it has to do with the central choice in all of Scripture — life or death, blessing or cursing.

“Tzav”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, March 25th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes a look the second, in sequence now, of ‘those’ detailed, and therefore, often ignored (like so much of that “Olde” Testament…) portions of Scripture; Parsha “Tzav,” Leviticus/Vayikra chapters 6 through 8.) And this one is perhaps even more “NOT politically-correct” than the last one. Especially given the season!

It’s also again true that not only is there much more to this one “than meets the eye,” and in this case, it’s because Yahushua warned that what He REALLY taught we be ‘offensive’ to many…especially when they claim to be honoring Him.

Starting with the Erev Shabbat overview…

SSM Tzav 2018

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 continues from there and will no doubt be just as offensive to many. That’s OK; as Mark explains up front, not only are we to “speak His Truth boldly,” as we ought to, but to “sigh and cry” at the “abominations” that are being done…often ‘in His Name,’ even if they don’t really KNOW it.

The difference between His “Appointed Times,” starting with Pesach and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and a pagan substitute, named for a fake “goddess”, is literally a matter of “life and death”.

“Vayigash”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, December 24th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the thrilling climax of at least MOST of the story of the “Suffering Servant,” Yosef/Joseph, and how THE Plan of YHVH continues to play out, with Judah demonstrating what it means to “MAN UP!” — resulting in restoration of the brothers and their houses, lives saved, and — ultimately — a descent into bondage. (Parsha “Vayigash,” Genesis 44:18 – 47:27. And a look at the haftorah in Ezekiel 37, and a bit of Ephesians 5, too.)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is about the final installment of the journey to Mitzraim (Egypt) and the restoration saga, but with a perhaps disturbing implication:

SSM Vayigash 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is focused on a specific aspect of the story of the man who represents a picture or aspect of the Meshiach to come. How is it that the very same man who literally saves the entire house of Israel, and was sent to “preserve life” at the same time looks to his brothers like a pagan, and ultimately initiates a process that leads to bondage?

The answer seems to relate to cycles that repeat, whether we like it or not, and what might seem like a contradiction (Ephesians chapter 5, or Ezekiel 37?) if we don’t look at the ‘bigger picture’ – in context. Especially in a ‘season’ like today.

“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.
