Parsha “Toldot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, November 11th, 2018

Join Mark Call for a look at parsha, “Toldot,” Genesis 25:19 through 28:9, which is most of the rest of the story of Yitzak (or Isaac) and introduces his two sons, and perhaps a problematic twist to the story of the “sons of promise”.

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, Mark Call again looks at the entire parsha, and what it is about Isaac that sets up ‘the rest of the story’.

It also sets up that much-contested deception that results in the “swap” of the birthright between the elder, and the younger of the two twins from Raquel’s womb, Esau and Yakov (or Jacob).

Did Yakov “steal” the birthright, and then the blessing, from his older brother? Or did Esau simply “despise” his birthright, and not consider it worth bothering about?

(And yes, as you might suspect by now, Mark is about to suggest that people who despise their birthright, and all the responsibility that might go along with it, are hardly unique to that “olde” testament. In fact, whether they’re called “snowflakes,” or “progressives,” or just haters-of-Yah, this is a story that still very much OUGHT to resonate today with those who have “eyes to see!!!”)

The Sabbath Day teaching, is thus all about that enduring question, WHY was Yakov the son of promise, and not Esau? (And, likewise, Isaac before him, as opposed to Ishmael?)

Toldot: ‘Isaac I have loved, but Esau I have hated’ — and which are we?”

Parsha “Chayei Sarah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, November 4th, 2018

Join Mark Call for a look at parsha, “Chayei Sarah,” Genesis 23:1 through 25:18, which he describes as including THE pre-eminent “common law textbook” stories in the entire Torah.

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, Mark Call again looks at the entire parsha, from the “life of Sarah,” and then her death and burial, through those stories that formed the basis for the common law concepts of “contract law,” and then marriage, and finally the idea of “agency,” power of attorney, or what the Bible means by a good and faithful servant who “comes in the name of,” his master.

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark looks initially and a bit more deeply into the elements of the story of Abraham’s purchase of the Cave of Machpelah and the first recorded land transfer deed in history, and the elements of what we see a “good and faithful servant,” who goes to do his master’s will, in his name, should look like.

And, now, just how far those twin pillars of a just society — Trust, and the Rule of Law –have been undermined.

How better to destroy that society? And how can we begin to rebuild those elements?

Parsha “Noach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, October 14th, 2018

Join Mark Call for part two of an examination of “as it was in the days of Noach,” in Bereshiet, the first Book, continuing in parsha “Noach” (Genesis 6:8 through all of chapter 11) — and it’s far more than even one of the most memorable stories in the Bible, of “Noah’s Flood”.

Yes, it starts out that way, along with the following story of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel.

First, the overview story from Erev Shabbat, to set the stage.

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark picks up on the second part of the theme, “as it was in the days of Noah,” and suggests that there may be more to what constitutes the ‘days of Noach’ than just pre-Flood wickedness.

Parsha “Bereshiet”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

This week, Mark Call takes a look at Bereshiet, “In the Beginning,” FROM the Beginning (Genesis 1:1 through 6:8) in what is probably a different way than you’ve ever heard before.

Yes, this is one of the “meatiest” and most truly information-packed portions in the whole of Scripture, and more than enough to occupy (and it has!) literally volumes of study.

But have you considered that the act of Creation, and the creation of mankind, “HaAdam,” in the image of YHVH Himself, has elements that are still in process?

First, the overview from Erev Shabbat, and a look at the many elements that make up the story, from the “Time Domain;” what happened first, and then next. Or is it?

SSM “Bereshiet” for 2018/2019 Torah cycle

During the ‘meat-filled’ Sabbath Day teaching, Mark-the-Engineer again “waxes nerdy,” and hopefully manages to make what “as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be…” (and how we’ll be able to tell) take on a whole new aspect. Don’t let the title scare you off, and don’t miss this one:

“Bereshiet: Free Will plus a bit of Control Theory…
…equals Self-Selection.”

Parsha “V’zot HaBerakah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship in the southern Colorado Rockies for a look at the final parsha in the Torah, and some commentary on the times and seasons of the final days of the Fall Feasts as well: “V’zot HaBerakah,” from Deuteronomy chapters 33 and 34.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching of the entire parsha, and the cycle begins, is here:

and then the Sabbath Day look at how certain aspects of that ancient warning are not only important, but now closer than ever.

“V’zot HaBerakah: THIS is the blessing, and it didn’t end with Moses”:

Parsha “Nitzavim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

The message in the Torah portion for this week (Netzavim, Deuteronomy 29:9 through chapter 30) is simple, and timeless…
and profound…
…and UTTERLY at odds with much of the ‘doctrine of men’ taught for so long by the paganized whore ‘church’.

And that is why Mark Call suggests – again – that this perfectly clear and consistent summary of SO much of the entire Torah is also ignored.

We are indeed, as the Hebrew title reminds us, “standing” before Yahuah THIS DAY (‘HaYom’) just as our forefathers did, and have a choice to make. The fact that we have been lied to, for generations is still no excuse to fail to choose life!

This parsha, at “such a time as this” may be among the most timely reminders possible, as this Erev Shabbat summary makes clear.

But when it comes to a message that has become the very essence of “politically INcorrect” in a world which would have us fail to prefer life to the culture of death, or even to believe that we have a choice at all, Mark ‘pulls no punches’ (neither does Scripture!) in the follow-on Sabbath Day teaching, when it comes to what “free will” really means, and why those who ‘serve Him alone’ are under such vicious attack.

Yes, it’s “adult material” (for people ready for ‘meat’ as opposed to spoiled milk, if you prefer) — but it’s also about why we have been lied to about what He really says for SO long has never been more vital to know, and to “choose this day Whom you will serve”.

(The recording linked here contains an extended Q & A that followed the teaching, largely focused on current events in light of the concept of choice in a world which hates YHVH.)

“Nitzavim: Free Will, it’s NOT to hard for us to choose life, THIS day!”

Parsha “Matot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Matot,” (Numbers 30:2 through chapter 32), including what turns out to be one of THE most relevant and important — and openly violated — commandments in the whole Book!

The Erev Shabbat overview, from the statute (or “chuk”) about VOWs, and what Mark describes as “covering” in marriage – to the story of the destruction of the Midianites and why all that first part really matters:

Warning: Adult Content, and NOT only NOT “Politically-Correct,” but downright offensive to those who love Lies More than Truth. The title speaks volumes…

The Sabbath Day teaching picks up the theme of Broken Vows, Lies, and False Witness…because it is hard to imagine a more timely parsha than one which warns against what AmeriKa-with-a-K now rubs in our faces. Picture a Swamp Crocodile smirking while lying through big, vicious teeth, and you have a good clue where Mark is heading.

Parsha “Chukat”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

This week, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship  teaches parsha “Chukat,” (Numbers chapters 19 through 21) and THE element described as the very essence of what a “chuk” is — aka “statute”, but really, ‘just DO IT because your Creator said to.’ This one is particularly poignant, because not only are the lessons NOT “done away with”, or obsolete, but some understanding of death is central to loving life, and living it in spite of challenges and worse.

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with that most famous, and perplexing ‘chuk’ of the Red Heifer. But it turns out that the story is far more intricate, and interconnected, than we may have thought.

Alternative link to the Erev Shabbat teaching via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching this week comes with a warning up front, because not only is the primary subject of this parsha DEATH, but Mark more than suggests that “death” has become so ingrained in this culture and ‘the church’ that the warnings, the metaphor, the ‘picture’ that YHVH is painting here has not only been lost in twisting and idolatry, but turned on its head.

Parsha “Shelach Lekha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Shelach Lekha,” (Numbers chapters 13 through 15) and the stories of the ‘spies,’ their ‘evil report’, and the subsequent whining (and First Recorded Vote in human history, to boot) that ultimately cost every adult who participated in the spectacle their life.

The Erev Shabbat overview lays out some of the reasons why that is, as Mark again looks at the entire parsha in order, and supports from Scripture why those assertions were made.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again examines in more detail the primary themes in this parsha — particularly the Big Question, “Who do WE trust?” — and the related lessons that are SO relevant to the very same issues, but perhaps with different giants, that we face today.

Parsha “Naso”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Naso,” (Numbers 4:21 through chapter 7) and what is perhaps not only one of the longest weekly portions in the Torah, but one that tends to confuse a lot of people who are trying to “come out of her,” for quite a few reasons.

The Erev Shabbat overview lays out some of the reasons why that is, as Mark looks at the entire parsha in order. (And for those who have asked about why the Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship is NOT a 501c(3) Big-Brother blessed corporate creation, that is addressed briefly up front here as well!)

 

 

The Sabbath Day teaching this week focuses primarily on the two ‘central’ themes in this parsha, the process concerning the wife who MAY, or may not, be guilty of adultery, and the Nazerite vow…and how it is that while neither of them may still be practicable, both are still central to understanding what Yahushua DID, and did NOT, do, and how we have “inherited lies from our fathers” about most of it.
