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 “Vayechi”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, December 23rd, 2018

Join Mark Call for a look at the final parsha in the Book of Bereshiet, or Genesis, “Vayechi,” (Genesis 47:27 – end), which completes the telling of the lives of the patriarchs, with the death of Yakov, aka Israel, his adoption of the two sons of Yosef, Ephraim and Manasseh into the ‘twelve tribes,’ and finally their prophetic blessing as well, setting the stage for the descent into slavery and the ultimate Exodus.

First, the Erev Shabbat review of the whole story:

The Sabbath Day teaching begins with what Mark suggests is the central theme of Israel’s “grafting in” of the two in-part foreign-born sons of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, in the reverse order of their birth.

Parsha “Vayigash”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

On this Sabbath teaching, Mark Call takes a look at parsha, “Vayigash,” (Genesis 44:18 through 47:27), which completes the “cliff-hanger” story of Yosef (Joseph) and the test of his brothers, and ends with a reunion and a message that none of them anticipated.

The Erev Shabbat review of the whole story, from the place where Judah “Mans Up,” comes forward, and shows his brother something that Joseph had not expected:

The Sabbath Day teaching is suggests that the major themes in the parsha are not only just as important as ever, but are now coming to a climax unlike that ever seen before. And it’s the haftorah part, from Ezekiel chapter 37, that helps to make that clear.

Parsha “Vayishlach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

Join Mark Call for a look at parsha, “Vayishlach,” (“and he sent out,” Genesis 32:3 through chapter 36), which now tells the story of Yakov’s (Jacob’s) return home, with his wives and children, and how he deals with his brother, Esau.

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, we again hear the story in sequence, this time including some things that just even appear at ALL from the original Hebrew (the ‘jots’):

Parsha “Vayeira”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, October 28th, 2018

The story of the life of the First Patriarch, Abraham, continues with what might be one of the most problematic, certainly contested, and perhaps even confusing portions in the Torah, “Vayeira,” Genesis chapters 18 through 22.

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, Mark Call again looks at the entire parsha, from the arrival of the three ‘men’ who come to Abraham’s tent in the heat of day, and the discussion that follows, through the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and then the “akeida,” or binding of Isaac:

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark looks into those themes that both unite, and divide the “two houses,” that each see some, but only some, of the patterns that tie the plan of YHVH, literally “from the Beginning,” to what happened, more than once, on a mountain in what was then called Moriah.

It involved a walk of faith, ‘chesed,’ sometimes translated from Hebrew as “kindness,” and the continued concept of choice, or free will. It even has a lot to do with laughter.

Vayeira: When the choice seems to hurt, do we laugh or cry?”

Parsha “Re’eh”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Re’eh,” (Deuteronomy 11:25 through 16:17), which he initially begins by introducing as the parsha which is front and center when it comes to “Debunking Bogus ‘xtianity’ “.

And the Erev Shabbat overview of course begins there, where Moses begins by say, paraphrased a bit, “Hey, check it out!” or, “Behold!,” or just “See…”
…I set before you a blessing, and a curse…

So choose.

But, perhaps more importantly, THIS is THE parsha that really nails WHY the ‘whore church’ has been so deceived by paganism.

The Sabbath Day teaching will no doubt be one of the most “controversial” – even by Mark’s standard – in some time, because this parsha really DOES encapsulate so much of what the paganized, romanized, 501c(3) Caesar-licensed corporate ‘chuch’ of “another master” has come to preach: “another jesus, whom we have NOT preached…”

But the title lays out the premise.

Parsha “Ekev”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 5th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Ekev,” (Deuteronomy 7:12 through 11:25), where ‘because’ (the way the portion begins) really IS only the beginning of the story.

And the Erev Shabbat overview of course begins there, and follows the text, including still more insight into Moses’ continuing theme, “hear,” obey,” do, and LIVE:

SSM Ekev 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching starts with some understanding that the Hebrew words don’t necessarily mean exactly how they’re [mis]translated into English. A word like “shema/shemar”, for example, is actually even more than “hear and OBEY”, because that obedience is an INFORMED choice, if we ‘love Him’.

And how can we “love” Him, trust Him, even “obey Him” if we have not only ‘forgotten Him,’ but can’t even “hear” Him?

And on such “trivial” distinctions, civilizations fall.

Parsha “Vaetchanon”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Vaetchanon,” (Deuteronomy 3:23 through 7:11), arguably one of THE most “central” and fundamental teachings in the entire Torah.

The Erev Shabbat overview begins at “and I besought”, the opening words, “V’etchanan” through the warnings about idolatry, and not “adding to,” or “subtracting from” (still VERY popular with both exiled houses!) to the Ten Debarim (commandments, or sayings) and what is described by the Torah Made Flesh as THE most important commandment in Scripture. The main theme, however, is not just “hear,” but “obey,” and “DO!”:

Parsha “Bemidbar”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 20th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches “Bemidbar,” the first parsha in the Book of that same name, aka “Numbers” (and there are a lot of THOSE, too!) — Numbers 1:1 through 4:20.

The Erev Shabbat overview describes why the English monikers of “Numbers” really isn’t so inappropriate in this case, because much of this first portion is about precisely that.

SSM “Bemidbar” for 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

There is, of course, much more, too, although the numbers themselves are the very reason why Moses is commanded to make that first census of the children of Israel.

The Sabbath Day teaching continues that exploration of the major themes of the portion, beginning with the concept of ‘counting heads,’ or conducting a census — <strong>at the command of YHVH.</strong> — and what that says about ‘why’ such a census of His people is only made at His explicit command (as King David later realized).

Again, there are elements of contrast between those who, as did Moses, “did as Yahuah commanded,” and so much of what happens today, where those who count themselves as owned by “another master” should realize that WHATEVER that master may claim, it isn’t Him!

There is a very important reason why Yahushua responded with the questions that He did to those that tried to trip Him up over a “tax question”. And the part that is often overlooked is not just “whose image and inscription” is on Caesar’s coin, but WHOSE are WE?

Parsha “Tazria-Metzorah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the double-parsha “Tazria-Metzorah” (Leviticus/Vayikra chapters 12 through 15) and several very much related (but perhaps surprising!) Scriptures associated with a portion that has been described as everything from “BOOOORING!” to absolutely fascinating. Perhaps because it is SO ‘foreign’, in so many ways, to our experience. And that is part of the problem, and the fascination.

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with something that most of us have at least SOME understanding, or experience with, the ‘circumcision’. And — like so many of these Scriptures that we have “inherited lies” about — there’s a lot of the NOT ‘politically correct’ in there, too.

Note: As you might suspect, there is Adult Content in this series.

The Sabbath Day teaching continues with the major themes of ‘tzaraat’ (whatEVER that is!) and what connections, if any, there might be with “the tongue”, or the things which “come OUT of a man,” and “defile him”.

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and points out why Scripture refers to TWO ‘whoring houses’ (northern and southern kingdoms, Samaria and Jerusalem, Oholah and Ohilibah, Israel and Judah, and, yes, he suggests, modern rabbinic ‘Pharasaic’ Judaism, and pagan Romanized churchianity) and BOTH of them were exiled ‘for CAUSE’ (idolatry/adultery)
