Parsha “Ki Tetzi”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 26th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Ki Tetzi,” (Deuteronomy 21:10 through all of chapter 25), which AGAIN seems to literally exemplify so much of what is ABSOLUTELY WRONG with the western world today, especially because this is so politically INcorrect that it speaks volumes!

The Erev Shabbat overview starts with the concept of the “war bride,” and that’s just for starters…

For several weeks running now, the Sabbath Day teaching is arguably even more NOT ‘politically-correct’ than the week before. And this time, there needs to be an “<strong>adult content” warning</strong> as well, since the topics include marriage, sexuality, virginity, and a few things that will be even more offensive to a world which genuinely seems to HATE His Word, especially “as Written”.

From ‘transgenderism’ and ‘sodomy’ to the issue of multiple wives, there is plenty in Scripture that is so at odds with what men say He SHOULD have said if He was as smart as they think they are, it’s no wonder the world is such a mess.

The emphasis, however, MUST be on what is actually Written. What we have “heard it said” is NOT necessarily what He Wrote, for our blessing. So, be like the Bereans (Acts 17:11).

“Ki Tetzi: Fraud Covenant Marriage and Divorce, and the fact that all this is <em>SO</em> ‘NOT PC’ speaks volumes!”

“Bereshiet ”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa looks at the Scriptures associated with the end of the regular annual Torah cycle, and The Beginning of the next. From “V’zot Ha Bracha,” at the end of Deuteronomy, the time of “Simcha Torah,” is about the joy of this season, and the new beginning as we start — well, CONTINUE, our study into Genesis.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look first at Deuteronomy chapters 33 and 34, which includes both the end of the life of Moses, and the five Books of the Torah as well, and then continues into The Beginning again, into Bereshiet (chapters 1 through part of 6, even).

The Sabbath Day teaching is an acknowledgement that there is FAR too much just in the first few characters of Bereshiet/Genesis for a single study, and that’s just the beginning. So Mark focuses on the “WHY?”

Why is THIS portion so FUNDAMENTAL, so vital to us NOW, and, therefore, so reviled by ‘the world’ in general.

We see IN-credible Big Whoppin’ Lies being foisted – from the Very First Two Lies in Scripture, to the rebellion and failure of “covering” and responsibility that accompanied them, to the consequences – which STILL form the basis — the Rock — for all that follows.

“Bereshiet – Why? How else can we build, line-by-line, precept by precept, upon the Rock?”
