Parsha “Shalach Lekha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 30th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a study of parsha “Shalach Lekha” (Bemidbar/Numbers chapters 13 through 15), some of the related references from elsewhere in Scripture, and the undeniable parallels with a world which still literally “despises” Yahuah and His Word.

In the Erev Shabbat review, the story begins with the decision to “shalach” or send out men to ‘spy out’ the promised Land. When they return, we have recorded what Mark refers to as the “first recorded VOTE in history,” which two fellows named Joshua and Caleb are said to have lost. But the truth is that all who thought the ‘vote’ mattered were the real losers, and ultimately their “carcasses fell in the wilderness.”

But the story just begins there.

The Sabbath day message picks up the theme of those who Yah said “despised” Him, and includes a deeper look as well into the latter part of the parsha, including chapter 15, which Mark suggests might be titled, “Requiem for the Whore Church,” because it encapsulates in brief SO much of what the “Israel” that was later exiled (again, sent out or “shalach”-ed) for cause says is “done away with,” while He clearly says otherwise.

And notably today, we have our own version of evil men who not only bring a “bad report” of the Creator, but destroy literally every element of the things He said to keep, remember, and DO, “throughout your generations.”

The people of Berea were once praised for their willingness to “search out” a matter, and “see if these things are true.” Today, people “google” them instead, and one of the many lessons of this portion might be that the word has become a verb whose real meaning amounts now to “deliberately rebel” against them.

The “Come out of her, My people” Show for Thursday, 27 June, 2019

Thursday, June 27th, 2019

No doubt about it any more…so many things that ‘constitutionalists,’ Austrian economists, those the Ministries of Truth call “conspiracy theorists,” and, yes, those who read Scripture for comprehension have warned about for literally years, are not not only coming together, but approaching a climax of “Biblical Proportions” at Warp Speed.

This week, host Mark Call ties together a number of frequent topics, from censorship, currency collapse, and the 5G threat, to the incredible censorship and even just-now-documented sedition of Big Brother’s public-private partners like Gulag (aka ‘Google’, YouTube, You-Name-It) to outline what ‘come out of her’ NOW means in a world where it’s undeniably a matter of life or death for those with “eyes to see”.

Are you a “luddite” if you recognize how so much of Big Tech is just plain Evil, or simply a realist?

Parsha “Naso”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, June 18th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Naso” (Bemidbar/Numbers 4:21-7:89) where this time it’s things that are just generally “overlooked” by the “Bible-believing-but-Not-Really” church that really SHOULDN’T be!

In the Erev Shabbat review, we see the story begin with more numbers, this time of those who will ‘carry the burden’ of His sanctuary, which sets the stage. That is followed by two sets of commandments concerning those things that, because of their implications, most of xtianity does seem to ignore, and then the longest chapter in the Torah, and ‘most redundant’. But there are reasons for that, and even, as it turns out, a lesson in computer science for those with “eyes to see”.

SSM “Naso” 2019

Alternative Link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

In the Sabbath day part of the message, Mark examines the “Things Overlooked” part of the parsha to show why they may be more important than we’ve been led to believe. What is it about Acts 21 that offends church dogma? And why is that cup of ‘the sota’, whether it’s referred to as “cup of trembling,” or “wrath”, or even “abominations” so central to a theme of the ‘torah of jealousy’ that ignoring the reasons WHY is easier than dealing with the idolatry?

Parsha “Bo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

This week’s parsha, Bo, (Exodus 10:1-13:16) is best-known as the story of the final three of the “Ten Plagues” (or, the third set of three, plus the unique ‘Death of the Firstborn.’)

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:

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark focuses this time around on the issue of “signs and wonders” — “otot u’moftim” in Hebrew — and why or whether they still apply in this “modern age”. Or, are we again seeing a lot of fake gods and ‘hardened hearts’?

That first Exodus has much to teach us about the next one.

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!”

SSM “Vayeira” 2019

Alternative link via HNR:

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.

“Vayeira: Patters Past and still in Progress. It’s STILL all about His Name!

Parsha “Ki Tavo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 2nd, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Ki Tavo,” (Deuteronomy 26:1 through 29:8),

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with ‘ki tavo,’ or “when you have come INTO THE LAND” that Yahuah gives to you…offer up first fruits, and that there is an important declaration to be made. It ends with one of the most vivid descriptions in Scripture of why the “lies we have inherited from our fathers” are so deadly.

SSM “Ki Tavo” 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

This Sabbath Day teaching continues the sequence of ever-more NOT ‘politically-correct’ warnings, arguably BECAUSE the curses that we see coming to a climax of literally “Biblical Proportions” today are PRECISELY what was so strongly warned against!

It’s hard to honestly contemplate what ‘the world’ is doing, and has become, and then to read Deuteronomy chapters 28 and 29 and NOT see the connection. But Mark again asks some uncomfortable questions, and points out that there are things we can and SHOULD do “in such a time as this”. There IS a problem with ‘tolerance’ of Evil, and we must “not keep silent”.

“Ki Tavo: Blessings Ignored, or Curses Selected, Natural Consequences, Tolerance – and do NOT Keep Silent”

Parsha “Shemini”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the Torah portion “Shemini” and the many related Scriptures that matter SO much “at such a time as this.”

The Erev Shabbat overview begins on the “Eighth [shemini] day” after the annointing of Aaron as High Priest, or kohen gadol, along with his two oldest sons, Nadav and Abihu, and the tragedy that follows. There are MANY lessons in that, and, perhaps surprisingly to some, the Biblical teaching of what constitutes “food” (and what does NOT) follows immediately. No coincidence…

SSM “Shemini” 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching continues with the major themes of the parsha, and the very-much related haftorah segment (from II Samuel 6 through 7:17) and how all of that is SO vitally important, arguably always, but especially now – with a world on the verge of Biblical-level carnage.

Follow along as Mark draws the parallels between Big Lies past and present (“nuthin’ new under the sun”) and how — if even His “annointed” can fall prey to the Capital Crime of doing that which He “did NOT command,” then <em>how much more so</em> those who have been lied to most of their lives about what is “holy,” and what is profane, what is “clean,” or NOT, and even what is <em>FOOD</em>, or not!

“B’shalach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the story of one of the most famous miracles in the whole Book — the parting of the “red sea” (or Sea of Reeds, take your pick). Perhaps more importantly, there’s a WHOLE lot more to this story, that begins at the end of the plagues, and really kicks off the genuine “exodus”. (Parsha “B’shalach,” Exodus 13:17 through chapter 17)

SSM B’shalach 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again continues the recent look at a few of the major ‘themes’ in the story of the Exodus, with a reprise of the concept of the “Minimum Necessary Miracle, and including the idea of “bookends” that might be playing out now, as we look toward the “Greater Exodus,” or Regathering, yet to come…

“Bo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the conclusion of the story of the ‘Ten Plagues’  (or 3 x 3 + 1) that begins the story of the Exodus. (Parsha “Bo,” Exodus 10:1 through 13:16)

These teachings are available live each week via Paltalk, in the “Walking Torah with Shabbat Shalom Mesa” room (interactively, via www.paltalk.com) and also simulcast at
http://cp3.shoutcheap.com:2199/start/lindcall/

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with the final two plagues in the “three sets”, locusts, and darkness which can “even be felt,” and culminates with the unique, separately-prophesied death of the firstborn. Oh, and there’s a pretty detailed description of the “prototype” — the first Pesach (“Passover”) — in there, too, even though much of churchianity prefers to ignore the part where He says, over and over even, to remember it, teach it, and keep it, “throughout your generations,” as a “chukat olam,” or statute forever.

SSM Bo 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again examines in greater detail just a few of the major ‘themes’ in this parsha, from those final plagues to at least a few of the concepts in the haftorah (Jeremiah chapter 47)…
…to the somewhat fascinating idea of darkness which can even be felt. And if that sounds like something that may have more than just “metaphorical” significance today, you’ll enjoy this discussion.

“Vayeira”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the second parsha in the Book of Exodus, and the first in the famous story of the Ten Plagues. (Parsha “Shemot,” Exodus 6:2 through 9:35)

The Erev Shabbat overview not only tells the story, but points out how SO MUCH of what is contained in this portion literally “plants the seeds” — reverberates — throughout the rest of Scripture. And it has so much to teach us about “human nature,” but even more importantly, His as well.

SSM Vayeira 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week attempts to take one of the most information-packed and “theme-intense” stories in the Torah, and connect more than a few Disparate Dots.

Yes, we may be on the brink of seeing the “bookends” of this story play out. If there are plagues ahead, it’s important to at least have some clue as to what they may look like. Perhaps more importantly, what about “Free Will”? (Did Pharoah really have a choice about the role he played? Maybe that’s an “easy one,” but it leads to other more critical clues…)
