Parsha “Korach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 7th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a study of parsha “Korach” (Bemidbar/Numbers chapters 16 through 18), as well as some ‘compare and contrast’ from other parts of Scripture, and, yes, the ever more undeniable parallels with a world which is arguably in greater outright rebellion to Him than Korach even was.

But that is part of the ‘enigmatic’ nature of this story, too!

In the Erev Shabbat review, the story says a fellow named “Korach” (or Korah, in most English variants) took men and then began one of the prototypical rebellions in both the Bible, and history. And it ended dramatically, too. There is, of course, more to the story. Some of it you really don’t even see without a look back at some of the very revealing Hebrew words, which may not even show up in most translations.

the story just begins there.

The Sabbath day message, as promised, takes a deeper look at that “rebellion”, and why it was punished so quickly, dramatically, and UNUSUALLY. And, perhaps, why other rebellions against YHVH seem to go unpunished as well. At least for a while.

Parsha “Beha-alotecha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 23rd, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a study of parsha “Beha-alotecha” (Bemidbar/Numbers chapters 8 through 12) and the related Scriptures that give us a bit more insight into the ‘cycles’ still being repeated.

In the Erev Shabbat review, the story begins with the instruction to Aaron via Moses concerning “when you light the lamps” of the menorah. That is followed by the cleansing, consecration, and even ‘waving’ of the Levites, who serve “in place of” the firstborn, what the silver trumpets are for, and a bit more of the story that has a WHOLE lot to say, both then and still, about human nature.

The Sabbath day message again explores the cycles of human history and Biblical prophecy. Mark-the-engineer begins by noting that cycles can be confusing, since they repeat, but unless we understand which PART of a cycle we are looking at, the pattern might only not be obvious, it might appear backward.

And from there he combines several of the continuing aspects of human nature evident in this week’s parsha, and a lot of things that we have HEARD, but which, out of context, we’ve also seen twisted…to the point where many of them have even been turned ‘upside down’.

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 “Behar”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Saturday, May 25th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Behar” (Leviticus chapters 25:1 – 26:2)  which again SOUNDS like a whole lotta ‘stuff’ that we’ve been told is “done away with”, and doesn’t matter anyway.  This week, though, it’s perhaps even more politically incorrect, because it goes to the heart of something that neither Big Brother nor his ‘whore Church’ even want you to think about.

In the Erev Shabbat review, Mark takes us through Sabbath not just for us, but ‘the land’, and why it is that evidently “proclaim liberty throughout the land” is oh-so-‘done-away-with.’  Instead, though, we have all kinds of slavery instead.

SSM Behar 2019

During the Sabbath day teaching, Mark again begins by noting that there’s a lot in the portion that is “Not PC” – yes, there really is a LOT of this lately, perhaps because those who prefer to call ‘evil,’ good, and then subsidize and mandate it, simply decide what IS ‘politically-correct’ based on what Scripturally-ISN’T.

We start with a quick review of other ‘verbotten’ topics that men have rewritten, to the point where people are now being kicked out of ‘churches’ (and, of course, off of Two-FacedBook) just for asking about them; from His Sabbaths and Moedim, to food (and what’s NOT), to marriage (or what now passes for it) — to another “third rail.” Just how “free indeed” are people who prefer lies and pleasant (so far) slavery to His Truth?

“Behar:  and Slavery, the new Third Rail”

Parsha “Kedoshim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Saturday, May 11th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Kedoshim” (Leviticus chapters 19 through 20)  which may be one of the best descriptions, and warnings, about post-Constitutional, “AmeriKa-with-a-K” in the Bible.

In the Erev Shabbat review, the study picks up with “this is, no SHALL BE, the <em>torah</em> of the ‘metzorah’,” or person who has ‘<em>tzaraat</em>’. What is to be done about it, and, yes, it can even infect a house.

SSM “Kedoshim” 2019

In the Sabbath day teaching, Mark connects a WHOLE lot of related dots this week, from prophetic warnings that are now flashing red sirens, to ‘twistings’ of some of the usual paganized doctrines that got the “ten lost tribes” exiled in the first place.

It’s not merely that “evil” is being called ‘good’, and vice-versa, or even that things which Yahuah described as “abomination” and prescribed a death penalty for are now mandated by a society which has elevated being “vomited out” to a source of twisted ‘pride’.

This is yet another portion that thus touches the heart of so very much that is wrong today, and why.  But, in this case, it is the problem and solution that are outlined in the very title and bookend admonitions of the parsha!  “Be set-apart,”  and it’s increasingly undeniable WHY.

In a world that has become “unclean, unclean!” — those who speak His Truth are being shamed and shunned, and of course banned from Two-Facebook.  But worse still, Mark asks a pertinent question, given that we have already been exiled – for cause – and literally, as foretold so many centuries ago – “vomited out of the land”.

What happens after THAT?

“Kedoshim:  Be Ya’ll Kedosh.   Cut off?  Or ‘Grafted In’?”

Parsha “Acharei Mot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Acharei Mot” (Leviticus chapters 16 through 18)

The Erev Shabbat review begins with what happens acharei mot – ‘after the death’ of Aaron’s two sons, and includes the storied reference to the ‘two goats’ associated with the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur, and continues through an outline of ‘prohibited sexual relationships’ and other practices for which the inhabitants of The Land were “vomited out”.  As it turns out, more than once, and that continues.

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the implications, and the haftorah (Ezekiel chapter 22) and related Scriptures.  And again Mark draws some connections which a paganized world and its ‘whore churches’ not only ignore, but deny:

“Acharei Mot:  Two Goats – or, the’ Voice is Yakov but Hands are Esau’s’ “

 

 

Parsha “Metzorah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, April 14th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Metzorah” (Leviticus chapters 14 and 15) — which to some extent is almost “Part 2” of the story of a ‘plague’ not seen for over a thousand years, although perhaps “more’s the pity.”

And for reasons that will continue that related theme from last week (Tazria, and the plague of “tzaraat” which is most certainly NOT what is called ‘leprosy,’ or Hansen’s Disease, this parsha is one of those that you “may have heard” is now irrelevant, “done-away-with”, and basically not worth studying — but for EXACTLY those reasons is probably more important now than ever, even if not for the reasons we’ve been lied to about.

This week, Mark looks at it from the opposite perspective, the ‘other half of the cycle’, if you will.

In the Erev Shabbat review, the study picks up with “this is, no SHALL BE, the <em>torah</em> of the ‘metzorah’,” or person who has ‘<em>tzaraat</em>’. What is to be done about it, and, yes, it can even infect a house.

In the Sabbath day teaching, Mark takes a look at something else the world has “turned upside down.”

It’s not merely that “evil” is being called ‘good’, and vice-versa; he suggests that what we are seeing run rampant in the world today is literally a ‘satanic (adversarial) imitation’ of a malady once intended by our Creator for our correction into an instrument of Evil:
not only to censor and suppress speech associated with Scripture and Truth, but to literally, turn His people into ‘social[ist] media outcasts’…and worse.

This is yet another portion that thus touches the heart of so very much that is wrong today, and why. How very much like our Creator to show via His Word that the very things we’ve been lied to told are “done away with” by way of the “opposites” and devilish imitations that have replaced them.

In a world that has become “unclean, unclean!” — those who speak His Truth are being shamed and shunned:
