Parsha “Pesach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, April 21st, 2019

This week, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship takes a look at teachings associated with the Passover feast and the first day of the week of Unleavened Bread. As you probably have come to expect, he doesn’t pull punches. And, no, it’s not the same as ‘easter’, but yes, it really DOES matter.

This is also a week of unparalleled turmoil in the world, and arguably none of that is a coincidence. Scripture has warned us about the consequences of rebellion against Him for a very long time.

Warning:   The focus here is people who have a heart to “search out the Truth for themselves.” This teaching is not going to sit well with many people who would prefer NOT to hear what Yahuah has to say about things He calls ‘abomination’. And that includes pagan traditions that the whore church claims are cute and harmless, but where He clearly says otherwise. ‘Cause if what’s going on – in “such a time as this” – doesn’t at the very least make us angry, or even “sigh and cry” – then what’s happened before will no doubt happen again.

It may never have mattered more.

“It’s ‘Pesach,’ or Passover, not ‘easter’ – and it’s time to DO DATES”

Parsha “Vayikra”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Vayikra” (the first parsha in the Book of the same name, AKA “Leviticus”, chapters 1 through 5).

This parsha begins with very different, perhaps even grammatically ‘problematic’ verse, that essentially says somebody “called out to Moshe” in an evidently loving way. And it includes one of those “jots and tiddles”, too!

In the Erev Shabbat review of what that means, Mark notes that the Book begins with the word “And…” – so it’s a continuation of SOMETHING, and notes that much of this whole Book also makes the vitally important point that it’s in there for a reason!

And if we ignore that reason, or – worse still – try to convince ourselves that what He said hasn’t changed somehow DID, then what He really do for us after all? Scripture draws a clear bright line between “unintentional sin” and – well, whatever it should be called when the choice is ignorance instead.

Vayikra is a call to ‘intimacy’ with YHVH — and after the events that closed out the Exodus, perhaps specifically a RETURN toward intimacy. And as part of that process, it includes some specific procedures for how that works, when one chooses to make “an offering of themselves” to Him.

And right there, SOME of the issues with what has become dogma surrounding what is now called “sacrifice” begin to come into focus.

After the overview introduction of Erev Shabbat, Mark follows up with the hardcore Scriptural proof that the reason not only a ‘whore church’ that ignores His Word is STILL in exile but a whole society now chooses death over life is that what once passed for ‘priests’ “FAILED to teach the difference” between the clean and unclean, holy and profane, good and evil. We don’t even understand the difference between an offering and a sacrifice, much less what has been “done away with” as opposed to done for us.

Yes, this one is hard-hitting, certainly not “politically correct” (much less filled with ‘socialist just-us’) and not to be missed.

Parsha “Tetzaveh”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, February 17th, 2019

Parsha “Tetzaveh” (Exodus 27:20 through 30:10) is another ‘semi-controversial’ teaching from the Torah. Is it a proof text of “why the Law is done away with,” or the converse?

This parsha continues the description, among other things, of the clothing “for beauty and for splendor” to be worn by the ‘cohenim’ (priests, of the line of Aaron) and particularly the special garments of the ‘Cohen Hagadol,’ or High Priest.

Join Mark Call first for the Erev Shabbat review of all of that, and another demonstration that even though neither the cohenim NOR the place they were called to serve still exist as they once did, when Scripture says that the commandments associated with them are “forever,” it’s a good reason for us to listen to Him, rather than what we’ve been told He should have said:

SSM Tetzaveh 2019

During the Sabbath Day teaching Mark again takes a look at the ‘bigger picture,’ of not only the Torah portion itself, but related pictures from Scripture, and things that show us why the pattern there is still SO important today.

There are reasons why ‘the priesthood’ no longer wears those garments, or even has a place to. To listen to the Whore Church, it might have something to do with Melchitzedek. But based on fruit, and warnings associated with scattered and lost tribes, maybe “sackcloth and ashes” is better garb anyway.

Here is another, continued lesson those who would like to be part of a ‘holy priesthood’ should ponder.

“Tetzaveh: Clothing is only ONE way to show Who we serve — particularly, in Such a Time as THIS”

Parsha “B’shalach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 20th, 2019

Parsha B’shalach (Exodus 13:17 – 17:16) may just be the most “miracle-dense” portion in the whole Torah, from the “pillar of cloud by day, and fire by night” perhaps the most famous miracle of all – the “parting of the Red Sea” (ok, Sea of Reeds).

Miracles are only part of the story, however, and perhaps it’s BECAUSE of the level of them that the rest of what follows is all the more poignant, and telling.

Join Mark Call first for the Erev Shabbat review of the whole story.

SSM “B’shalach” 2019

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark explores those miracles a bit more, from several perspectives, and especially for an understanding of what we face.

How could people who literally SAW all of those miracles still follow up almost immediately by “whining,” and then ultimately turning to idolatry right “before His face!”??? And if that’s not a warning for us, then what is?

That first Exodus has much to teach us about the next one.

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’):

The Sabbath Day teaching focuses on a theme which not only pervades Scripture, but is also more relevant by the day as civil war looms: “Brother against brother”.

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.

SSM “Noach” 2018

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 “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.

Alternative link via HNR:

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 “Emor”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the parsha “Emor” (Leviticus chapters 21 through 24) and addresses “head-on” the issue of why what He Wrote about a line of priests that we have been told – erroneously – no longer matters, still does.

The Erev Shabbat overview focuses on WHO the people are that YHVH says to “Speak” (Emor) to, starting with the “kohenim,” or ‘priests,’ meaning the sons of Aaron. They are not to defile themselves with death. They are to be “qadosh” — holy, perhaps, but more accurately “set apart” to Yahuah. There are specifications for sexuality, and marriage, and even some pretty “politically-incorrect” formulations for how He wants those who serve Him to be.

The fact that such a priesthood doesn’t really exist any more (for reasons that are key to our understanding as well) only help make the point about why all of this still matter anyway!

SSM Emor 2018

 

Alternate link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

 

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the major themes of the portion, from the continuing issue of why it still matters at all, to how the specifications for His “set-apart” priesthood pretty well eliminate most of the doctrine of ‘churchianity’ from having anything to do with it.

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and addresses a whole lot of “xtian doctrine” that may sell on sun-god-day, but turns Scripture literally upside-down.

Special Shavuot teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, June 5th, 2017

This is the special Shavuot (aka ‘pentecost’) teaching from Mark Call and Shabbat Shalom Mesa.
“Pentecost and Shavuot:
Two Houses, Two Stories, Two Blind Spots,
One Remedy, and One Truth”
