Parsha “Pekudei”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, March 11th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Pekudei” (Exodus 38:21 through the end of the Book) and more of the value, and vital importance, of ‘redundancy’.

This parsha begins with an ‘accounting’ of the elements, materials, and even workmanship that makes up the ‘mishkan’, or tabernacle.

In the Erev Shabbat review of what that means, Mark points out again just how often we might think that “we’ve heard all of this before” there’s more to it — with an emphasis on obedience:

Pekudei begins with an “accounting” (which even Mark, while inclined often to the ‘nerdy’ admits is not the most exciting subject in his opinion) but that’s where the real questions begin. Like “Why do we still study this?” (especially if as I Corinthians 3 suggests, “WE are the ‘temple of God'”).

More disturbingly (since we are also told to “work out our own salvation with fear and trembling”) we see quite a few things in Scripture which again make the point that there really still IS a reason why the pattern or ‘template’ of the mishkan matters. More than we’ve probably been told. Especially now.

Parsha “Terumah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, February 10th, 2019

Parsha “Terumah” (Exodus 25:1 through 27:19) is one that has been called all kinds of derogatory names by the <em>Whore Church</em> that would prefer to believe all that “Old Testament” stuff was “done away with” — even ‘nailed to the cross’ — rather than admit it doesn’t make sense because people would rather be “destroyed for lack of knowledge”.

It is also the first of several that have to do with the ‘mikdash’, or the ‘mishkan’ (tabernacle) where He “may dwell in us”. Maybe some call it ‘boring’ because they’d just as soon He didn’t.

Join Mark Call first for the Erev Shabbat review of all of that, and a first look at the possibility there’s more here than meets the eye, or the pulpit:

During the Sabbath Day teaching Mark explores the disturbing question of ‘the temple’, which the whore church tells people who don’t actually obey Him is still somehow WITHIN them. But if David, a “man after Yah’s own heart” was not allowed to build the first temple because of the blood on his hands…’how much more so’ a land, a people who celebrate the blood on theirs?

The Truth is the essence of “politically incorrect,” because to be PC is to worship another god, whether that fake is called Baal, Molech, Beelzebub, Ole Scratch, the Almighty State, or just HaSatan.

This is a lesson those who truly seek to be “indwelled by His Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh)” literally need to ‘take to heart.’

“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 the in-depth look at OPPOSITES on the Sabbath explores why that may be.

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.

“Terumah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a look what SOME might call one of the most detailed, and therefore boring portions in the Torah. (they often lie, of course…) Parsha “Terumah,” Exodus 25:1 through 27:19).

It’s also a lead-pipe cinch that there’s much more to this one “than meets the eye”.

First, the Erev Shabbat overview — and some of the many reasons why:

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is a Whole Different Deal than usual, for that reason. Mark is generally wary of <em>over-spiritualizin'</em> the Bible; sometimes, however, we miss the point if we FAIL to see that there’s more than detail in the detail. Yes, he does sometimes get a bit “nerdy” – but in this case, maybe that’s the point.
