Parsha “Yitro”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, January 27th, 2019

Parsha Yitro (Exodus chapters 18 through 20) is most famously associated with the giving of the “Ten Commandments” to the mixed multitude of “All Israel” on Mount Sinai.

There is, of course, much more. More to the story, more to what was said, and maybe even more than just “ten” of ’em.

Join Mark Call first for the Erev Shabbat review of all of that.

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark continues that teaching with a deeper look at some of the major “themes” of Yitro, from his mission, to the ‘preparation’ for what is to come, to the famous Covenant itself. There’s even a bit of “nerdy Markology”, which hopefully informed speculation, perhaps couched in modern terminology to help expand on a millenia-old event.

And have you ever noticed that YHVH describes what He is offering to a “Kingdom of PRIESTS” even before those cohenim are identified later as specifically from the tribe of Levi?

including some observations, and ‘dot-connection’, regarding what may have been one of the biggest “data dumps” in human history.

Mark calls it “channel prep” — preparing US for the download, and all the ‘hyperlinks’ that computer channels do at electronic speeds nowadays, but we still have to do by preparing ourselves — line by line, precept by precept — for His instruction to be written on our hearts, so we can walk what we have already been told is a “narrow path” — and FEW there be that find it.

Parsha “Vayeira”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

This week’s parsha, Shemot, (Exodus 6:1-9:32) is best-known as the story of the first two-thirds of the “Ten Plagues”.

But there is far more to the narrative than just what children are told in “sunday school,” or saw in a famous movie.

Join Mark Call first for the Erev Shabbat review of the whole story, beginning with the importance of His Name, which is NOT to be hidden, and about which the entire Book is centered! The essence of the “Exodus” is to understand what Yahuah Himself said He would PROVE: “Ani YHVH!”

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark takes a deeper look into just some of the many intriguing patterns in the sets of plages. Yes, they are judgments on the many fake ‘gods’ of the Egyptians. Yes, there’s MUCH more to the issue of Pharoah’s “hardened” heart than we’ve generally heard. But it’s the part of the pattern that is and will be repeated during the Greater Exodus still to come that is being set out today.

Parsha “Shemot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, December 30th, 2018

This week’s parsha, Shemot, (Exodus 1 through 6:1) begins the Book of the same name, and the story which forms the literal archetype for deliverance.

And it begins – and ultimately ends – in the story of rebellion and obedience. The Big Question is at the heart of the matter: WHO do we serve?

First, the Erev Shabbat review of the whole story, which does being with “shemot”, the “names,” those sons of Israel who came into Mitzraim (Egypt), those midwives who names, Shiphrah and Puah, are memorialized BECAUSE they weren’t familiar with the GIV (“Government Inspired Version) of Romans 13 and obeyed Yah rather than some man who thought he was ‘god,’ and finally THE Name of YHVH Himself, the key to the Whole Story:

The Sabbath Day teaching continues from the point where five of the most important, heroic women in all of Scripture demonstrate the key difference between obedience and rebellion (it IS about Who we serve!) and why the patterns of bondage and obedience to the RIGHT Master is still so vital. Perhaps more so than ever, given that virtually everything in Scripture is now so NOT-PC…

Parsha “V’zot HaBerakah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship in the southern Colorado Rockies for a look at the final parsha in the Torah, and some commentary on the times and seasons of the final days of the Fall Feasts as well: “V’zot HaBerakah,” from Deuteronomy chapters 33 and 34.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching of the entire parsha, and the cycle begins, is here:

and then the Sabbath Day look at how certain aspects of that ancient warning are not only important, but now closer than ever.

“V’zot HaBerakah: THIS is the blessing, and it didn’t end with Moses”:

Parsha “Debarim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

The historic day of Tisha B’Av on the Hebrew Calendar is this week, so the Torah parsha should ‘traditionally’ be Debarim, the first in the Book by that same name, aka, Deuteronomy.

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of that parsha, “Devarim,” (Deuteronomy chapters 1 through chapter 3), where the narrative shifts from “<em>and YHVH said to Moses</em>,” to what Moses himself spoke in the last month of his life.

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with a recap of the journey of the B’nai Israel since their deliverance from Egypt, but largely takes the form of a ‘gentle rebuke.’

There is, of course, a lot more to the story. And in the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark takes a very different approach to that lecture than you may have heard before.

Perhaps even the title sounds a bit “nerdy” — but in this case, listeners will hopefully find the payoff sufficient to bear with Mark through a bit of setup…

“Shemot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the first parsha in the Book of Exodus, by the same name in Hebrew “Shemot”. (Parsha “Shemot,” Exodus 1:1 through 6:1)

The Erev Shabbat overview gives us an introduction to the descent of the descendents of Yakov into bondage, under a pharoah who “did not know Yosef,” and into the first two-thirds of the live of Moshe/Moses as well. (there’s also a major “first proof” up front in there of why the Official Big Brother Approved Romans 13 Bible is so just-plain-wrong, too.)

SSM Shemot 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is about why this “introduction to the Exodus” is SO important, and why Mark suggests (and that’s what a “look ahead” into prophecy and patterns always is, as opposed to ‘doctrine’!) that we may be on the brink of seeing the “bookends” of this story play out. There’s a reason to be excited about the times in which we live, especially if they may be among the most pivotal in all of human history!

…why we are blessed to live ‘in such a time as this‘ “

“Chukat”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes a two-part look at parsha “Chukat” (Numbers chapters 19 through 21). Among other things, the confusing “chuk” of the Red Heifer.

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark reviews the “whole story,” including the dual themes that really DO form the whole backbone: Death, and why “Because I said so!” means exactly that.

SSM “Chukat” 2017

The Sabbath teaching centers on one of the most confusing, perplexing, and thus often just plain ignored, “chukat” or “statues” in the Book. Mark uses the occasion to “wax nerdy,” but perhaps that’s a good reason not to miss this one. And don’t let the title fool you, all the dots will connect!

“Vayeira” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 29th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for another two-part look at this week’s Torah portion, which begins the story of the plagues in Mitzraim (Egypt) and all that it portends.

The Erev Shabbat teaching is an introduction to what might well be one of THE most “fundamental” stories, when it comes to understanding all that YHVH “was, is, and will be,” in Scripture:

SSM Vayeira 2017

The Sabbath day is all about why it just BEGINS with “ani YHVH”. How can He REALLY prove that He really IS Who He says He was, is, and will be?

“Shemot” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for this two-part look at the first parsha in a new book, Exodus, aka “Shemot” (Ex. 1:1-6:1)

The Erev Shabbat complete story overview:

SSM Shemot 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching addresses the story of so many people in Scripture — especially in this parsha — who “feared God” more than Pharoahs, Popes, or even Presidents, and disregarded the Authorized Clergy Response Team Official IRS-Approved Version of Romans 13 — “as Twisted.”

“Beha’alotcha” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Beha’alotcha” (Numbers chapter 8 through 12).

This week’s parsha marks another clear “turning point” in Scripture. Like the story from the Garden of Eden in Genesis chapter 3, or the story of the ‘golden calf’ at Mount Sinai, it’s a time of leaving, and people being people – again.

The Erev Shabbat total overview again covers the “whole story” – from lighting of the lamps on the menorah laying hands on the Levites, through the story of Aaron, and Miriam’s tzaraas to why Moses just isn’t like other prophets.

Behalotcha 2016

But it’s the issue of prophecy – then and now – and the ‘turning points’ that we face — again, then and now — that go ‘front and center’ during the Sabbath day teaching:
