Parsha “Bemidbar”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 20th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches “Bemidbar,” the first parsha in the Book of that same name, aka “Numbers” (and there are a lot of THOSE, too!) — Numbers 1:1 through 4:20.

The Erev Shabbat overview describes why the English monikers of “Numbers” really isn’t so inappropriate in this case, because much of this first portion is about precisely that.

There is, of course, much more, too, although the numbers themselves are the very reason why Moses is commanded to make that first census of the children of Israel.

The Sabbath Day teaching continues that exploration of the major themes of the portion, beginning with the concept of ‘counting heads,’ or conducting a census — <strong>at the command of YHVH.</strong> — and what that says about ‘why’ such a census of His people is only made at His explicit command (as King David later realized).

Again, there are elements of contrast between those who, as did Moses, “did as Yahuah commanded,” and so much of what happens today, where those who count themselves as owned by “another master” should realize that WHATEVER that master may claim, it isn’t Him!

There is a very important reason why Yahushua responded with the questions that He did to those that tried to trip Him up over a “tax question”. And the part that is often overlooked is not just “whose image and inscription” is on Caesar’s coin, but WHOSE are WE?

Parsha “Behar/Bechukotai”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the double-portion “Behar/Bechukotai” (Leviticus chapters 25 through 27) that wraps up the Book of Leviticus (Vayikra) and not only speaks volumes about why the “Olde” testament is not only vital to our understanding, but is perhaps THE warning in Scripture that most particularly describes precisely why things are where they are today.

The Erev Shabbat overview, which begins a bit differently this week, because “current events” are so viscerally reflected in the warnings that conclude this Book:

SSM “Behar/Bechukotai 2018”

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the major themes of the portion, including what it really means to be “adversarial” to YHVH. (The Hebrew word ‘shatan’, or even HaSatan, “THE adversary” are reflected in English words like ‘satanic’. But that just begins to describe what is outlined here.)

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and addresses not ONLY a whole lot of anti-Scriptural doctrine, but why so much of what is going on as we approach a Cursing Climax of literally “Biblical Proportions” can only be described as outright “Satanic”.

Note:   Obviously, more NOT “PC” Content. If terms like “whore church,” which so explicitly describe much of ‘xtianity today’ are a bit offensive, what this portion says will be downright shocking.

Parsha “Tazria-Metzorah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the double-parsha “Tazria-Metzorah” (Leviticus/Vayikra chapters 12 through 15) and several very much related (but perhaps surprising!) Scriptures associated with a portion that has been described as everything from “BOOOORING!” to absolutely fascinating. Perhaps because it is SO ‘foreign’, in so many ways, to our experience. And that is part of the problem, and the fascination.

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with something that most of us have at least SOME understanding, or experience with, the ‘circumcision’. And — like so many of these Scriptures that we have “inherited lies” about — there’s a lot of the NOT ‘politically correct’ in there, too.

Note: As you might suspect, there is Adult Content in this series.

SSM Tazria/Metzorah 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching continues with the major themes of ‘tzaraat’ (whatEVER that is!) and what connections, if any, there might be with “the tongue”, or the things which “come OUT of a man,” and “defile him”.

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and points out why Scripture refers to TWO ‘whoring houses’ (northern and southern kingdoms, Samaria and Jerusalem, Oholah and Ohilibah, Israel and Judah, and, yes, he suggests, modern rabbinic ‘Pharasaic’ Judaism, and pagan Romanized churchianity) and BOTH of them were exiled ‘for CAUSE’ (idolatry/adultery)

Parsha “Shemini”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the Torah portion “Shemini” and the many related Scriptures that matter SO much “at such a time as this.”

The Erev Shabbat overview begins on the “Eighth [shemini] day” after the annointing of Aaron as High Priest, or kohen gadol, along with his two oldest sons, Nadav and Abihu, and the tragedy that follows. There are MANY lessons in that, and, perhaps surprisingly to some, the Biblical teaching of what constitutes “food” (and what does NOT) follows immediately. No coincidence…

SSM “Shemini” 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

The Sabbath Day teaching continues with the major themes of the parsha, and the very-much related haftorah segment (from II Samuel 6 through 7:17) and how all of that is SO vitally important, arguably always, but especially now – with a world on the verge of Biblical-level carnage.

Follow along as Mark draws the parallels between Big Lies past and present (“nuthin’ new under the sun”) and how — if even His “annointed” can fall prey to the Capital Crime of doing that which He “did NOT command,” then <em>how much more so</em> those who have been lied to most of their lives about what is “holy,” and what is profane, what is “clean,” or NOT, and even what is <em>FOOD</em>, or not!

“Unleavened Bread – final Sabbath”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the Torah and related portions having to do with this season, continuing the Spring Feasts, and in this case the final Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

The Erev Shabbat overview is another look at what follows the initial ‘exodus’ of the children of Israel from Egypt, followed by the crossing of the Sea of Reeds. And it sets up the parallels that resonate so much today.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is a bit different than usual — as is the Torah portion for the holiday — in that it is much more ‘speculative’ than normal. (As regular listeners know, Mark is careful to distinguish between “what is Written” and ideas associated with “connecting the dots” of Scripture, or — as might be the case today — speculation about how events will play out. “Markology” is how he puts it.)

Follow along as Mark examines the potential, perhaps even probable, connections between the themes, patterns, and ‘shadow pictures’ of things past, and in particular the “parting of the Red Sea,” and what may be to come in the near future.

“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!

SSM Pesach – first Sabbath – 2018

Alternative link via Hebrew Nation Radio:

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.

“Bo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the conclusion of the story of the ‘Ten Plagues’  (or 3 x 3 + 1) that begins the story of the Exodus. (Parsha “Bo,” Exodus 10:1 through 13:16)

These teachings are available live each week via Paltalk, in the “Walking Torah with Shabbat Shalom Mesa” room (interactively, via www.paltalk.com) and also simulcast at
http://cp3.shoutcheap.com:2199/start/lindcall/

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with the final two plagues in the “three sets”, locusts, and darkness which can “even be felt,” and culminates with the unique, separately-prophesied death of the firstborn. Oh, and there’s a pretty detailed description of the “prototype” — the first Pesach (“Passover”) — in there, too, even though much of churchianity prefers to ignore the part where He says, over and over even, to remember it, teach it, and keep it, “throughout your generations,” as a “chukat olam,” or statute forever.

SSM Bo 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again examines in greater detail just a few of the major ‘themes’ in this parsha, from those final plagues to at least a few of the concepts in the haftorah (Jeremiah chapter 47)…
…to the somewhat fascinating idea of darkness which can even be felt. And if that sounds like something that may have more than just “metaphorical” significance today, you’ll enjoy this discussion.

“Vayeira”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the second parsha in the Book of Exodus, and the first in the famous story of the Ten Plagues. (Parsha “Shemot,” Exodus 6:2 through 9:35)

The Erev Shabbat overview not only tells the story, but points out how SO MUCH of what is contained in this portion literally “plants the seeds” — reverberates — throughout the rest of Scripture. And it has so much to teach us about “human nature,” but even more importantly, His as well.

SSM Vayeira 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week attempts to take one of the most information-packed and “theme-intense” stories in the Torah, and connect more than a few Disparate Dots.

Yes, we may be on the brink of seeing the “bookends” of this story play out. If there are plagues ahead, it’s important to at least have some clue as to what they may look like. Perhaps more importantly, what about “Free Will”? (Did Pharoah really have a choice about the role he played? Maybe that’s an “easy one,” but it leads to other more critical clues…)

“Shemot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the first parsha in the Book of Exodus, by the same name in Hebrew “Shemot”. (Parsha “Shemot,” Exodus 1:1 through 6:1)

The Erev Shabbat overview gives us an introduction to the descent of the descendents of Yakov into bondage, under a pharoah who “did not know Yosef,” and into the first two-thirds of the live of Moshe/Moses as well. (there’s also a major “first proof” up front in there of why the Official Big Brother Approved Romans 13 Bible is so just-plain-wrong, too.)

SSM Shemot 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is about why this “introduction to the Exodus” is SO important, and why Mark suggests (and that’s what a “look ahead” into prophecy and patterns always is, as opposed to ‘doctrine’!) that we may be on the brink of seeing the “bookends” of this story play out. There’s a reason to be excited about the times in which we live, especially if they may be among the most pivotal in all of human history!

…why we are blessed to live ‘in such a time as this‘ “
