Parsha “Emor”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Saturday, May 18th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Emor” (Leviticus chapters 21 through 24)  which again SOUNDS like a whole lotta ‘stuff’ that we’ve been told is “done away with”, and doesn’t matter anyway, for reasons that turn out to be, well, “Bogus Stuff”.  And it’s very “NOT PC” besides!

In the Erev Shabbat review, that becomes  clear, along with the myriad, REPEATED reasons why it all still matters.

During the Sabbath day teaching, Mark again begins by noting that there’s a lot in the portion that is “Not PC” – because there’s a LOT of this lately, perhaps because those who prefer to call ‘evil,’ good, and then subsidize and mandate it, simply decide what IS ‘politically-correct’ based on what Scripturally-ISN’T.

This is yet another portion that thus touches the heart of so very much that is wrong today, and why.  It only starts with Priests-that-aren’t.

arsha “Tzav”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, March 24th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Tzav” (meaning ‘command,’ from Leviticus/Vayikra chapters 6 through 8).

This week Mark’s internet connection was devastated for the Erev Shabbat service, so the ‘overview teaching’ didn’t really happen, until a recap during the Sabbath Day session.

The parsha begins with an admonition to “command” Aaron and his sons — the cohenim — concerning the instruction of YHVH about the things outlined in last week’s parsh, the olah, minchah, chattat (and asham), and shalamim offerings. The associated haftorah portion for this week, from Jeremiah chapter 7, offers an interesting and very instructive contrast. And it’s one which is not in the least less dramatic today, because we still are being conditioned to “trust in lying things, which are of no avail.”

Parsha “Tetzaveh”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, February 17th, 2019

Parsha “Tetzaveh” (Exodus 27:20 through 30:10) is another ‘semi-controversial’ teaching from the Torah. Is it a proof text of “why the Law is done away with,” or the converse?

This parsha continues the description, among other things, of the clothing “for beauty and for splendor” to be worn by the ‘cohenim’ (priests, of the line of Aaron) and particularly the special garments of the ‘Cohen Hagadol,’ or High Priest.

Join Mark Call first for the Erev Shabbat review of all of that, and another demonstration that even though neither the cohenim NOR the place they were called to serve still exist as they once did, when Scripture says that the commandments associated with them are “forever,” it’s a good reason for us to listen to Him, rather than what we’ve been told He should have said:

During the Sabbath Day teaching Mark again takes a look at the ‘bigger picture,’ of not only the Torah portion itself, but related pictures from Scripture, and things that show us why the pattern there is still SO important today.

There are reasons why ‘the priesthood’ no longer wears those garments, or even has a place to. To listen to the Whore Church, it might have something to do with Melchitzedek. But based on fruit, and warnings associated with scattered and lost tribes, maybe “sackcloth and ashes” is better garb anyway.

Here is another, continued lesson those who would like to be part of a ‘holy priesthood’ should ponder.

“Tetzaveh: Clothing is only ONE way to show Who we serve — particularly, in Such a Time as THIS”

“Emor”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes an in-depth look at Torah portion, Emor, Leviticus chapters 21 through 24.

AND yet AGAIN, we find another segment in Scripture that we have probably been TOLD is boring, obsolete, irrelevant, and – especially – “done away with,” this time because the ‘priests’ or cohenim are held to a “higher standard” that doesn’t sound Politically-Correct, and, besides, we don’t have real priests any more anyway.

But we do seem to have plenty who “play one on TV,” and prove that maybe there’s another master being served besides.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week continues the theme that these last few portions make so clear. We are to discern the “clean” from the “unclean,” the set-apart (‘qadosh,’or holy) from the profane, and ultimately know that Torah really IS about “Life and Death.”
And that explains a whole HELL of a lot…
