Parsha “Matot-(Masei)”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 4th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a study of the last portions in the Book of Numbers (Bemidbar in the Hebrew), but especially of the “vows,” and what that tells means in a world where they no longer matter.

This lesson is not only ‘timely’ – again, arguably more now than ever before in our lifetimes or even in modern history – but literally encapsulates so much of why if this ISN’T ‘the tribulation’, we ought to at least be able to smell it from here.

The Erev Shabbat overview of “Matot” (Numbers chapters 30 through 32) also includes a recap of news that helps to make the point about just how relevant the instruction is:

Mark has said he often focuses on Numbers chapter 30 as one of THE most important to understand when it comes to what has happened to marriage in a world which only pretends any more to read Scripture-as-Written. But this time in the Sabbath Day teaching he takes a different approach, right out of verse 3. If there is a single failure which describes why AmeriKa-with-a-K deserves what it has now earned, that may well be the Primary Descriptor:

Parsha “Matot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Matot,” (Numbers 30:2 through chapter 32), including what turns out to be one of THE most relevant and important — and openly violated — commandments in the whole Book!

The Erev Shabbat overview, from the statute (or “chuk”) about VOWs, and what Mark describes as “covering” in marriage – to the story of the destruction of the Midianites and why all that first part really matters:

Warning: Adult Content, and NOT only NOT “Politically-Correct,” but downright offensive to those who love Lies More than Truth. The title speaks volumes…

The Sabbath Day teaching picks up the theme of Broken Vows, Lies, and False Witness…because it is hard to imagine a more timely parsha than one which warns against what AmeriKa-with-a-K now rubs in our faces. Picture a Swamp Crocodile smirking while lying through big, vicious teeth, and you have a good clue where Mark is heading.

“Matot/Masei”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches from this week’s “double portion” this week, Matot and Masei (Numbers 30:2 through the end of the Book).

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching begins with what he calls with one of the most important topics in Scripture when it comes to marriage and Covenant — vows, and authority. Suffice it to say, it’s been too often ignored.

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the ramifications of that fact in more detail. Mark suggests that language, speech, and the way we use, abuse, or squander the “power of the tongue” is at the root of many, if not almost all, of the problems we see in the world today, not just in marriage, but in the fact that a man’s “word is no longer his bond”. And it shows.

Warning: In this one, Mark pulls no punches.

“Matot/Masei” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, August 8th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha ‘double-portion,’ “Matot/Masei” (Numbers chapter 30 through the end of the Book).

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. (see links page)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching this week begins one of most important admonitions in Scripture — especially when, as now, it is so widely violated: DO all that proceeds out of your mouth; keep your vows. Can you IMAGINE what a land like that might look like?

The Sabbath Day teaching attempts to connect a WHOLE lot of dots! The foundations ARE being destroyed. Vows no longer mean, well, squat. What are the ‘righteous’ to do?
