Parsha “Pinchas”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Pinchas,” (Numbers 25:10 through 30:1), which includes one of the most “problematic” examples and rewards in the Torah. How can what might be described as murder be rewarded by Yahuah with a perpetual Covenant of Peace?

The Erev Shabbat overview describes the “rest of the story,” since the major action actually took place at the end of last week’s parsh, and then what might seem to be a variety of disjointed other bits and pieces, from a second ‘head count’ to a recap of His ‘moedim’ (appointed times and feasts).

The Sabbath Day teaching explores what it means to be “zealous” for YHVH not only in a bit more depth, but in ‘context’ as well. Pinchas (Phineas) acted to save lives by making a public demonstration against those who — by their actions — acted in open defiance of Yahuah. But he was also “in the camp”, taking action to keep it clean.

If nothing else, Mark proves, while we are still in exile, the world we live in could hardly pass for a clean camp.

And it certainly shouldn’t surprise us that the portion is again SO relevant to the “times and seasons” today. It even has more to say about what constitutes “blasphemy” against His Ruach.

Parsha “Chukat”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

This week, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship  teaches parsha “Chukat,” (Numbers chapters 19 through 21) and THE element described as the very essence of what a “chuk” is — aka “statute”, but really, ‘just DO IT because your Creator said to.’ This one is particularly poignant, because not only are the lessons NOT “done away with”, or obsolete, but some understanding of death is central to loving life, and living it in spite of challenges and worse.

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with that most famous, and perplexing ‘chuk’ of the Red Heifer. But it turns out that the story is far more intricate, and interconnected, than we may have thought.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week comes with a warning up front, because not only is the primary subject of this parsha DEATH, but Mark more than suggests that “death” has become so ingrained in this culture and ‘the church’ that the warnings, the metaphor, the ‘picture’ that YHVH is painting here has not only been lost in twisting and idolatry, but turned on its head.

Parsha “Behar/Bechukotai”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the double-portion “Behar/Bechukotai” (Leviticus chapters 25 through 27) that wraps up the Book of Leviticus (Vayikra) and not only speaks volumes about why the “Olde” testament is not only vital to our understanding, but is perhaps THE warning in Scripture that most particularly describes precisely why things are where they are today.

The Erev Shabbat overview, which begins a bit differently this week, because “current events” are so viscerally reflected in the warnings that conclude this Book:

SSM “Behar/Bechukotai 2018”

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the major themes of the portion, including what it really means to be “adversarial” to YHVH. (The Hebrew word ‘shatan’, or even HaSatan, “THE adversary” are reflected in English words like ‘satanic’. But that just begins to describe what is outlined here.)

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and addresses not ONLY a whole lot of anti-Scriptural doctrine, but why so much of what is going on as we approach a Cursing Climax of literally “Biblical Proportions” can only be described as outright “Satanic”.

Note:   Obviously, more NOT “PC” Content. If terms like “whore church,” which so explicitly describe much of ‘xtianity today’ are a bit offensive, what this portion says will be downright shocking.

Parsha “Emor”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the parsha “Emor” (Leviticus chapters 21 through 24) and addresses “head-on” the issue of why what He Wrote about a line of priests that we have been told – erroneously – no longer matters, still does.

The Erev Shabbat overview focuses on WHO the people are that YHVH says to “Speak” (Emor) to, starting with the “kohenim,” or ‘priests,’ meaning the sons of Aaron. They are not to defile themselves with death. They are to be “qadosh” — holy, perhaps, but more accurately “set apart” to Yahuah. There are specifications for sexuality, and marriage, and even some pretty “politically-incorrect” formulations for how He wants those who serve Him to be.

The fact that such a priesthood doesn’t really exist any more (for reasons that are key to our understanding as well) only help make the point about why all of this still matter anyway!

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the major themes of the portion, from the continuing issue of why it still matters at all, to how the specifications for His “set-apart” priesthood pretty well eliminate most of the doctrine of ‘churchianity’ from having anything to do with it.

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and addresses a whole lot of “xtian doctrine” that may sell on sun-god-day, but turns Scripture literally upside-down.

Parsha “Acharei Mot/Kedoshim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the double-parsha “Acharei Mot / Kedoshim” (Leviticus/Vayikra chapters 16 through 20) — a portion that literally goes to the very heart of the ‘wicked fruit’ that describes why AmeriKa (in particular, but arguably the whole ‘WORLD’) may be in the process (birth pangs, if you will) of being “vomited out”.

The Erev Shabbat overview is again a look at the parsha “in order,” from what happens “after the death” (acharei mot) of Aaron’s two sons, to what might seem to be a disjointed set of miscellaneous statues and commandments that might SEEM like a “shotgun blast”, but do share a common thread. And, again, there’s not only a lot of the NOT ‘politically correct’ in there, but perhaps one of the Most Verbotten passages in the Bible. (It’s probably called a ‘hate crime’ on Kalifornia campuses of Higher Indoctrination if you even quote it!)

SSM Acharei Mot / Kedoshim 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching continues with the major theme of why “boundaries” not only matter, but are being destroyed NOW, for obvious reasons.

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and points out why Scripture “love” is properly seen as a verb (known by fruits) as opposed to a ‘feeling’, and twisting the meaning of that word, and the two most important commandments in Scripture as a consequence, are at the root of how evil is being called good.

“Pesach 1”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the Torah and related portions having to do with this season, and the first of the Spring Feasts.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching begins with the for each house to select a lamb — of either sheep OR goats — for the instruction that follows. And it is THAT instruction which has been so neglected, and explains much of why “we are where we are”.

The central message of ‘the telling,’ is that we are to TELL, and TEACH, our children. Many of us have to learn it now, because our fathers’-fathers’-fathers’ have failed for so long to do so!

SSM Pesach – first Sabbath – 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching is a deeper look at what Mark contends are two houses, each with a part of the Larger Truth, and yet each with a “selective blindness”. What follows will undoubtedly upset a lot of people who have never heard the actual story, “as Written,” of what, when, and how, these ‘prophetic pictures’ actually unfolded.

Follow along as Mark takes an detailed look at ‘the four Gospels’, and compares what they say to what we have been TOLD they should have said. And, yes, there are clearly errors, and contradictions, even in the King James. And when we “study to show ourselves approved,” we can in fact TELL the Story, as Written.

Thus begin the Spring Feasts.

“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…

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”.

“Vayakhel/Pekudei”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a discussion of the two-part ‘Double Parsha’ that wraps up the Book of Exodus. “Vayakhel, then Pekudei,” Exodus chapter 34 through the end of the Book).

What does a wise heart have to do with what much of xtianity calls a really boring part of Scripture that’s been “done away with” anyway? The answer goes to the very heart of what is wrong with a ‘church’ that denies His Word, yet claims He dwell in hard hearts that have no place for Him.

The Erev Shabbat overview of what exactly it is that the last part of Exodus describes being made, and why, introduces some perhaps uncomfortable parallels.

And in that respect, the Sabbath Day teaching this week is a literal OPPOSITE of the Erev Shabbat overview; sometimes, at the OPPOSITE part of the historical cycle, things are just plain inverted, or upside-down. And that describes the world today.

“Ki Tasa”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a discussion of the parsha that might be described as one of the most “pivotal” in the whole Book — Parsha “Ki Tasa,” Exodus 30:11 through chapter 34).

Starting with the Erev Shabbat overview and a look at some of the amazing patterns in Torah that, arguably, ‘bracket’ some things for special emphasis…to the disaster of the ‘golden calf’.

“Vayechi”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the parsha in the Book of Bereshiet/Genesis – “Vayechi”. (Parsha “Vayechi,” Genesis 47:28 through the end).

The Erev Shabbat overview concludes with first the end of the life of Yakov, and his blessings to both Ephraim and Manasseh, and then the other sons forming the “twelve tribes,” followed by the end of Yosef as well:

The Sabbath Day teaching this week looks at the end of the Book of Genesis, the prophetic blessings of the sons of Yakov, and what might even be called “post-Genesis GAP theory” —
just how did they end up in that kind of bondage anyway?

And can we see how elements that resulted in the northern kingdom (divided Israel) both splitting from Judah, and then ending in bondage and exile, ought to look so incredibly familiar.
