“Pesach 1”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the Torah and related portions having to do with this season, and the first of the Spring Feasts.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching begins with the for each house to select a lamb — of either sheep OR goats — for the instruction that follows. And it is THAT instruction which has been so neglected, and explains much of why “we are where we are”.

The central message of ‘the telling,’ is that we are to TELL, and TEACH, our children. Many of us have to learn it now, because our fathers’-fathers’-fathers’ have failed for so long to do so!

The Sabbath Day teaching is a deeper look at what Mark contends are two houses, each with a part of the Larger Truth, and yet each with a “selective blindness”. What follows will undoubtedly upset a lot of people who have never heard the actual story, “as Written,” of what, when, and how, these ‘prophetic pictures’ actually unfolded.

Follow along as Mark takes an detailed look at ‘the four Gospels’, and compares what they say to what we have been TOLD they should have said. And, yes, there are clearly errors, and contradictions, even in the King James. And when we “study to show ourselves approved,” we can in fact TELL the Story, as Written.

Thus begin the Spring Feasts.

“Ki Tasa”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a discussion of the parsha that might be described as one of the most “pivotal” in the whole Book — Parsha “Ki Tasa,” Exodus 30:11 through chapter 34).

Starting with the Erev Shabbat overview and a look at some of the amazing patterns in Torah that, arguably, ‘bracket’ some things for special emphasis…to the disaster of the ‘golden calf’.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week compares THAT “pivotal” failure in Biblical history with today, and the fact — demonstrated repeatedly — that we still make the very same mistake. Over and over again.

“Tetzaveh”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a look what another of ‘those’ detailed, and therefore, often ignored (like so much of that “Old” Testament…) portions of Scripture; Parsha “Tetzaveh,” Exodus 27:20 – 30:10).

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

Starting with the Erev Shabbat overview and a look at, among other things, ‘clothing’.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week continues from there into a variety of related Scriptures, from the haftorah and readings from the prophets (a couple of Mark’s faves, he admits…) into Matthew 5, and the oh-so-common ‘twisting’ of the “Sermon on the Mount”. There’s a reason why the prophet Isaiah said that there will come a time (and it certainly applies NOW!) where “children are their oppressors,” and it gets worse from there.

“Vayechi”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the parsha in the Book of Bereshiet/Genesis – “Vayechi”. (Parsha “Vayechi,” Genesis 47:28 through the end).

The Erev Shabbat overview concludes with first the end of the life of Yakov, and his blessings to both Ephraim and Manasseh, and then the other sons forming the “twelve tribes,” followed by the end of Yosef as well:

SSM Vayechi 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week looks at the end of the Book of Genesis, the prophetic blessings of the sons of Yakov, and what might even be called “post-Genesis GAP theory” —
just how did they end up in that kind of bondage anyway?

And can we see how elements that resulted in the northern kingdom (divided Israel) both splitting from Judah, and then ending in bondage and exile, ought to look so incredibly familiar.

“Vayigash”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, December 24th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the thrilling climax of at least MOST of the story of the “Suffering Servant,” Yosef/Joseph, and how THE Plan of YHVH continues to play out, with Judah demonstrating what it means to “MAN UP!” — resulting in restoration of the brothers and their houses, lives saved, and — ultimately — a descent into bondage. (Parsha “Vayigash,” Genesis 44:18 – 47:27. And a look at the haftorah in Ezekiel 37, and a bit of Ephesians 5, too.)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is about the final installment of the journey to Mitzraim (Egypt) and the restoration saga, but with a perhaps disturbing implication:

SSM Vayigash 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is focused on a specific aspect of the story of the man who represents a picture or aspect of the Meshiach to come. How is it that the very same man who literally saves the entire house of Israel, and was sent to “preserve life” at the same time looks to his brothers like a pagan, and ultimately initiates a process that leads to bondage?

The answer seems to relate to cycles that repeat, whether we like it or not, and what might seem like a contradiction (Ephesians chapter 5, or Ezekiel 37?) if we don’t look at the ‘bigger picture’ – in context. Especially in a ‘season’ like today.

“Sukkot ”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa looks at the Scriptures associated with the first Sabbath of the final Fall Feasts, Sukkot, or “Tabernacles”.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look at Leviticus 22:26 through 23:44, the description of the Feasts of YHVH, and why we are to keep them throughout our generations, in “all our dwelling places”.

SSM “Sukkot – First Day 2017”

And yet here we are now at the climax Fall Feasts – the first Sabbath of Sukkot, the Moedim of YHVH we have been told to remember and do, as best we can, here in exile – forever.

We see IN-credible Big Whoppin’ Lies being foisted – and revealed as such, to those with “eyes to see”. We see Evil literally running amok. And we see prophecies being fulfilled, perhaps NOT for the first time.

And we know that there is a real point to remembering His feasts, and doing our best to learn what He has for us.

Sukkot – What about THIS season? Now, and ahead!

“Ekev”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches parsha “Ekev” this week, from Deuteronomy 7:12 through 11:25.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching, and the “Because!” part:

SSM Ekev 2017

 

The Sabbath Day teaching is about connecting a lot of consistent Torah concepts with the idea of CONSEQUENCES. And why ‘causality’ is key. It also explains why the destruction of a Biblical worldview is the goal of those who hate YHVH and His Word.

“Ekev:   Causality – Biblical Worldview – and WHY it is SO important to seek HIS kingdom now!”

 

“Vaetchanan”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the parsha from the Book of Devarim/Deuteronomy this week — “Vaetchanan” (3:32 thru 7:11) — that begins a series with more “concentrated MEAT” than perhaps any section of Scripture.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching, and the specifics of the ‘statutes, judgments, and commandments’ that we are NOT to “add to” or “subtract from,” but DO:

SSM “Vaetchanan” 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching begins by noting that Deuteronomy is just plain DIFFERENT from all the other Books in the Torah. And so is this teaching. Admittedly, it’s a bit like drinking from a fire hose, but ‘the Words’ that begin here explain why ‘the World’ so hates them!

Warning: As usual, Mark pulls no punches. It’s not just the ‘Whore Church’ we see so clearly in this portion, but the fact that the two kingdoms might also be termed the “Add-to House,” and the “Subtract-from House.”

“Vaetchanan – From Hear and DO to – Two Houses, the Add-To and the Subtract-From”

“B’ha’alotecha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes another two-part look at parsha “B’ha’alotecha” (Numbers chapters 8 through 12).  Again, it looks like another “potpourri” of perhaps disparate topics, in spite of the fact that it ALSO clearly contains another major “turning point” in the Story.

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark outlines several of the themes, and why they remain “timeless”.

SSM Beha’alotecha 2017

But it’s during the Sabbath Day teaching, where it’s time for some spiritualizin‘ — and even a bit of speculation.”  If we see a ‘turning point’ in this story of Whining in the Desert, isn’t it about time we became “teachable” ourselves?  (Moses certainly was, as we shall see.)

“Naso”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa“Naso”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes another two-part look at parsha “Naso” (Num. 4:21 through the end of chapter 7) — which MIGHT look like a veritable potpourri of disconnected topics, until you take a deeper look at it.

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark attempts to do just that. There’s a reason why most mainstream Christian denominations tend to ignore these, too…and it’s very much related.

SSM “Naso” 2017

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark takes an in-depth look at one specific aspect of the portion that is sometimes called the “remedy for the jealous husband,” or the “law of the sotah”. But it’s in fact a theme that is SO fundamental to the entire history of the “sons of Israel,” the two houses that have both been “sent out” for cause, and our continuing exile, that it’s no wonder ‘the church’ would prefer to ignore the entire issue.  (And, yes, it’ll be clear why Mark freely uses the term ‘whore church’ — since that’s what Scripture makes clear.)
