“Vayetzei”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the first installment of the story of Yakov/Jacob’s journey, from his first direct encounter with Yahuah to the place where he later spends 20 years and acquires the family from which come the twelve tribes of Israel. (Parsha “Vayetzei,” Genesis 25:19 – 32:3)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is covers the story itself, how his encounter with YHVH might seem to be during one of the most difficult and fearful times of his life, so far, and then how he comes to have wives, children and flocks, and a legacy which spans millenia.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week really covers a lot of ground. Yes, this is a “politically incorrect” parsha, which again makes clear that what Yahuah Wrote for us is often very divergent from men have subsequently decided to REwrite for Him. But this is a particularly important Torah lesson for us today, because it can teach us how to deal with fear and massive change in our own lives.

Mark looks at many of the things happening in our world today that demonstrate the “scale of Evil” we face, and the choices that result. Will we trust in Him, as Yakov did, or “<em>return to our place</em>” in failure, as Laban demonstrated?

from food and marriage to ‘rapture,’ ‘flat earth,’ and silver “

Join Mark Call for two teachings on this week’s Torah portion, Vayetzei” (Genesis chapters 28:10 – 32:3 ).

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, (Friday evening) Mark covers the story Jacob leaving home, his encounters with the angels “ascending and descending” from heaven, his wives, the birth of his sons, and his final departure from Laban.

SSM Teaching – Vayetzei 2014

The longer teaching from Shabbat again delves into areas that just aren’t touched by most churches.  Yes, there’s not only a lot that is VERY politically-incorrect in here (from marriage to “romance”) but a lot that gives us insight into whether we really care about what is Written, or just what we’ve heard it SHOULD have said.  (Warning:  adult content, too.  Not surprising, probably.)

Does ‘the world’ get love and covenant out of order?
