“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?”

 

 

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

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Join Mark Call for two related, but different looks at this week’s Torah portion, Balak, from Numbers chapters 22 through 25:9.

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

Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaching – Balak – 4 July, 2014

The longer teaching from Shabbat concentrates on specifics from the parsha in more detail.  The story of the king Balak and the somewhat problematic Bilaam has a lot to teach us today.

Senate plans Mark of the Beast

Friday, March 8th, 2013

There has been much “gnashing of teeth” and wringing of hands lately about the “Right of the people to keep and bear arms.”

 

Of course, when that Law was written into the Bill of Rights as a condition for ratification of the Constitution, those who did so unanimously recognized that all such “Rights” come from our Creator.  Now that “democracy” [sic – it is correctly spelt “demon-ocracy,” I contend]  has replaced the form of government once guaranteed by that document to these united States, and YHVH, the God of the Bible, is no longer even PERMITTED in the White House, Congress, courts, or Skools (aka “Publik Indoktrinashun Centurs”) of the land, it should come as no surprise that the ‘voice of the peepul’ is NOW the ‘voice of god’.

At least, those small-g ‘gods’ who have replaced Him.

Everyone with even a rudimentary grasp of history knows that slaves are NEVER permitted by their masters to ‘keep and bear arms’.  So what is the problem?  And what isn’t pretty well already clear?

But maybe there’s more TO this one:

It turns out that a lot of Xtians, and an increasing number of people who are “coming out of” a ‘Church’ that has been teaching His Written Law has been “done away with”, “nailed to the cross”, and just simply doesn’t apply in Modern Babylon — are starting to realize that something is horribly wrong.  We have indeed, as the prophet Jeremiah (16:19)  said, “inherited lies from our fathers.

If the Elohim of Scripture, Who says He “changes not” (Mal. 3:6) and is the same “yesterday, today, and tomorrow” cannot truly be trusted to keep His Word, and if His Commandments don’t apply any more — in spite of His instruction to the contrary — then why in Hell would we think man’s pitiful ‘constitutions’, and ‘laws’ made in accordance with it could possibly fare any better?  Like those who the Messiah rightfully called “hypocrites”, those who rewrite His statutes, judgments, and commandments, too, are “without excuse.”

There really wasn’t much left of the Bill of Rights in Amerika any more anyway…

 

But there IS something in this ‘debate’ about over-turning the last vestiges of a free people that should “raise the hair on the back of our necks”.  Think of it as a “sign of the times”, and a great indicator of “where we are” in the Last Days ‘timeline’.

Revelation 13:16-17  says that he, “causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,  and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark — the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Have you followed all the debate about “Universal Background Checks”?

It seems that much of Washington, DC, is absolutely determined to get them in place for the peons.

It’s “very reasonable”, say the talking heads, the sycophants, and the poorly-disguised “Servants of Another Master”, to require the slaves to pass a “background check” before they are ALLOWED to purchase, or “transfer,” a firearm.  Furthermore, the concept that was once called “private property” has now been reduced to a “loophole”.   Recall that “licensed” gun “dealers” have already agreed, by virtue of that license itself, to abide by whatever rules their “master” (the One Who Gave Them the permission to do that!) — that they will abide, without question, by WHATEVER rules their Master dictates.  Both now and in the future, whenever the One Who Gives Permission might decide to change “His” rules!

The problem is, there are SOME who serve a DIFFERENT master, and still think they have the Right, from the Creator of the Universe, to “own property”.  They may not have agreed to the terms of the new “master’s” license.  They still believe (and I hope you’re sitting down) that something they bought, perhaps decades ago, or that was given to them by their grandaddy, is actually “THEIRS”, to use, or give away, or even dispose of, as they see fit!

They may even still think they have  “Rights” from their Creator.  Rights that this OTHER master, aka “Big Brother Himself” no longer tolerates in his world.

Now, a “bipartisan” group of Senators (and that’s the most dangerous kind) wants to “close the gun show” — and “private sale” — loophole, and mandate that ALL firearms transfers must require a “Universal Background Check” before they are allowed to happen.

So – for a second, at least – just forget all the legal jargon.  (They’re already telling you that simply FORBIDDING you from possessing SOMETHING doesn’t really constitute “infringement” anyway, so why would you believe anything else they claim?  …Unless, of course, you’ve been properly Indoctrinated!)

IFF (that’s Engineering Geek shorthand for “IF, and ONLY IF”)  there is such a thing as a “Force for Evil” in the world…whether It is called “Avarice”, the “Lust for Power and Control”, Global Socialism, the “New World Order”, or even Satan…

and IFF — knowingly or just in self-serving ignorance — that Entity is putting together a System of complete control of its Beastly World, perhaps under the guise of regulating all “commerce”…

and IFF that turns out to be EXACTLY what YHVH, the Creator of the Universe, warned us about millenia ago through “His servants the prophets”…

then just how would you expect some parts of that Plan to be put in place?

 

Consider this:

 

If they can require PERMISSION to “buy or sell” the single category of property that is SPECIFICALLY and unequivocally enumerated in the Bill of Rights that “shall not be infringed” —

is there ANYTHING that such a slave CANNOT be prohibited from “buying or selling” without some kind of “Mark” – denoting permission from that Beast system?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lie upon Lie, Pretext upon Pretext

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013
Check out this podcast of today’s news, including a major segment on the truly masterful lies from the Man Who Would Be King:
News for 22 January, 2013 – and analysis of The Emperor’s New Speech
 
Some people may recall that the prophet Isaiah (28:10-13) talks about learning to understand Scripture “precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, [and] there a little”…Obama managed to do to the Constitution (again) what he does to the Bible…
twist the clear meaning to the point that he calls “evil” good, and good “evil”.And —  to top it all off — he manages to use the bodies of children to “oppress the people” while glorifying sin in the process.  (Check Isaiah 3.    The parallels would be funny, if not so shocking.)

Bondage

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

The story which begins the Book of the Exodus, and then the life of Moses, is about a people who have fallen into bondage.  And arguably, they didn’t even know how it happened.

The Book of Genesis ends not too long after the father and brothers of Yahuseph (Joseph) have come into the land of Mitzraim (or current Egypt).  There remained not quite five years left until the famine through which they were saved would have ended, so – a question presents itself:  Why didn’t they LEAVE?

Why STAY, and let their children, and their children after them, fall into bondage?

Our own Founding Fathers, through the words of Thomas Jefferson, give a pretty good answer…and it has never changed too much throughout most of history:

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Slavery, in other words, is often easier than genuine “change.”

 

 

The latest installment of the “Come out of her, My people” Show addresses this issue in some detail, as well as something I call the “Chicken Little Syndrome”:

The Declaration of Independence…and withdrawing consent

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Here are links to several shows which have to do with the almost-forgotten concept of “Truths” which we once unanimously held to be “self-evident”, and other related topics.

 

Food for thought going into a weekend where there is more to remember than fireworks and barbeques:
