Parsha “Vayeira” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look, among other important things, perhaps the most significant event in the life of both Abraham, and his son Yitzak (Isaac) – also known as the Akieda, or ‘binding of Isaac’…parsha Veyeira (Genesis chapters 18 through 22).

It’s often cited as one of the most dramatic stories of “faith” in all of Scripture – but, even so, there is still more to it.

The sequence again begins with the Erev Shabbat reading:

Mark suggests that while the story of the ‘binding of Isaac’ is without question a history-making Act of Faith, when it comes to whose faith was tested, or – better still – proven, for our benefit more than His. Because He already knew.

And that is the key for this week’s midrash. Abraham KNEW, of a certainty, that the promises he had been given were to come though that son that he was given through Sarah. Today, and especially given the level of Evil that has been exposed, increasingly, even over the last week, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that, since elections won’t fix the problem, are we at the point where the world, literally, “doesn’t have a prayer?”

Still, since we who trust in Him DO ‘have a prayer,’ it’s important to understand the promises that we can, without question, rely upon, in such a time as this.

Parsha “Lekh Lekhah” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at the first parsha to examine the details of the life of Abram, later Abraham, the “first of the patriarchs” in Scripture. Parsha Lekh Lekhah (Gen. 12:1 – 17:27) begins with the words which begin his journey of obedience and blessing: “Come out” of your country, your home, your father’s house; basically, everything you’ve known, and go to a land that I will show you…when you get there.

And how’s THAT for a step of faith?

The sequence again begins with the Erev Shabbat reading:

The First Patriarch in Scripture, and literally the ‘father of the faith,’ for all who follow, is the subject of more ink in the Torah than any who preceded him. In a world which seems to hate all of His Word, the basic concepts that underlie the family, Yah-ordained ‘headship’, and – uh,oh! – the entire concept of ‘patriarchy’ itself, are particularly NOT ‘politically-correct’ (which today has come to mean nothing short of psychotic) and generally ‘vertotten’.

So this is already a vital part of the foundation.

Parsha “Noach” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

The parsha for this week, Noach (Gen. 6:9 through 11:32) tells us more about what “as it was in the days of Noach” could mean. But there is, interestingly, a WHOLE lot of “ambiguity” in some parts of the story as well.

The sequence again begins with the Erev Shabbat reading:

This week it’s time for the Sabbath Day session to go in a ‘Whole ‘Nuther Direction’ than Mark often does — because this might be THE singular story – or set of stories – in Scripture with the most “unanswered questions.”

Scripture is clear: We are not to “add to”, nor “subtract from” those things which He has commanded, and are “as Written.” But when we look at the confusion that is today, and ask reasonable questions, like, “Is THIS what ‘as it was in the days of Noah’ looks like?” that we are not only inclined to “connect the dots,” but perhaps even…speculate.

Parsha “Bereshiet” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

At the conclusion of His Fall Feasts, it’s time to turn back again to the Beginning, and the Book of Genesis, aka “Bereshiet” and the first Book AND Torah parsha in the Torah.

The parsha for this week — IN the Beginning, Bereshiet (Gen. 1:1 through 6:8) is arguably one of the most FUNDAMENTAL of them all; the Foundation, upon which what follows rests.

The sequence again begins with the Erev Shabbat reading:

There are so many vitally important themes in this first part of Scripture, and so many elements and concepts, that are all introduced “in the Beginning.”

But the theme that must stand out “at such a time as this” is Authority. Real, and that which is “God-given,” and that which has been abdicated, usurped, and stolen.

Parsha “V’zot HaBrakah” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

The Torah parsha for this week is the final installment in both the Book of Deuteronomy, thus the entire Torah, and the life of Moses: V’zot HaBrakah (Deuteronomy chapter 33 through the End of the Book.)

The sequence again begins with the Erev Shabbat reading:

The Sabbath Day teaching this week — for reasons that will become obvious — is a bit more about ‘current events’ than usual. After all, this IS the final part of the final holy week of the Fall Feasts (and Sukkot, the time of the birth of the real Messiah) and it is characterized by a single primary commandment:

Rejoice!

But – given that we’re on the bring of global thermonuclear war, the biggest economic meltdown in our history, and engineered famine and pestilence to boot, some might wonder how that could work.

So don’t miss this one. There a PLENTY of reasons WHY, and even how.

Parsha “Ha-azinu” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This week, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship takes a two-part look at parsha “Ha’azinu” (Deuteronomy chapter 32) and the end of the week that includes Yom Kippur, and the second-to-last portion in the Book, and thus the Torah.

The sequence agains begins with the Erev Shabbat reading, in the context of the Fall Feasts, and ‘the times’ in which we now live:

The Sabbath Day teaching is about asking some “hard questions” – especially given the events that arguably have brought us closer to Global Thermonuclear War, among other things, than ever in human history. And it really is tough to argue that whatever “Jugment(s)” that Yahuah may bring, or at least “allow,” on AmeriKa – “Western Civilization” or a World that Just Plain Hates Him, aren’t more than fully deserved.

It is clear why He SHOULD be “angry”, and what that means. But, really, what does that mean for us in the face of “fire”? Do we pray against what just may be “His Will?” Tough questions require us to take an HONEST look at Scripture, and what His Word really says.

That right there, just might speak volumes. It’s time to pay attention.

“Ha’azinu: Give ear…Judgment is DESERVED – but THEN What?”

Parsha “Vayelekh” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at parsha “Vayelekh” (Deuteronomy chapter 31 alone) which does perhaps seem a bit ‘short’ for a parsha, but is nevertheless still not at all short of “meaty”.

The sequence begins with the Erev Shabbat reading and the certainly helps to “set up” that claim:

The Sabbath Day ‘deeper look’ involves some words that perhaps just don’t get translated quite properly into English. It’s bad enough to “break” His Covenant, but arguably “a ‘nuther thing altogether” to make it VOID – as if it had never existed.

Not only does that help to at least in part help explain His “anger”, the following exile (still in progress) and why He “hides His face,” it also seems to explain what is now coming to a head.

“Vayelekh: Kazakh! The time is NOW.”

Parsha “Nitzavim” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

As the annual Torah cycle begins to come to conclusion, the parsha this week (Nitzavim, Deuteronomy 29:10 through chapter 30) is the one that Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa Fellowship suggests — especially given season and confluence of global events at literally Biblical levels — is perhaps the most vital of all.

It’s certainly one of the most ignored. Perhaps because it refutes so unequivocally the what is probably the Biggest Lie of the last 17 centuries.

The sequence begins with the Erev Shabbat reading, which not only refutes that Big Lie (and its corollaries) but includes what Mark suggests is the most concise “two word” summary OF Scripture IN Scripture, “Choose life!”

The Sabbath teaching this week is for those who are starting to realize the EXTENT to which we have “inherited lies from our fathers.” But, more importantly, what we can do NOW to walk in His Truth. It’s even a “wooden stake” in that vampire of a lie that attempts to proclaim the Savior Himself a liar, that He “did away with” His own “law”, or ‘nailed it to the cross.’

Now, more obviously that it’s ever even been before, that is a lie unto death. It’s vital we be ready to refute it, give a reason for the hope within us, and choose life!

“Nitzavim: No, it’s NOT too hard for you. But it IS a Life and Death!”

Parsha “Ki Tavo” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at parsha “Ki Tavo” (Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8) which is again not only ‘meaty’ but downright SCARY to those who don’t like what it says. Which makes it again one of the most important – especially NOW.

The sequence begins with the Erev Shabbat reading, the title part about “when you come” into the land, and then the details of the most well-known set of “Blessings and Cursings” in the whole Book:

There is a segment in this parsha that consists of repeated curses of the form, “Cursed by he THAT…” which turn out to be – or at least once to have BEEN – “things done in secret.” So what does it say that they often are no longer even done in secret, but openly? And taught in the Public Cesspools, even.

Perhaps that is why the other curses seem more imminent, if not already undeniable.

But Mark opens by asking this question…

“Ki Tavo: Are These Curses Really From HIM?”

Parsha “Ki Tetze” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at parsha “Ki Tetze” (Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19) which he describes as one of the ‘meatiest’ in the Torah when it comes to ‘instruction and commandments,’ and also one of the most NOT ‘politically-correct.’ Which makes it therefore one of the most important – especially NOW.

Which, again, tells us something about how we’ve gone so far “off the rails.”

The sequence begins with the Erev Shabbat reading and the specifics of what ‘the world’ just plain hates:

This week it’s important to start off with a quick look at just how truly Evil this nation has openly become. Call it “abomination on parade.” But the fact that so much of this portion is SO reviled by the ‘woke’ points to something even more important:

What ‘the world’ values – and what it does NOT – tells us how the coming Judgment will play out. And why things that seem almost mundane compared to the ‘life and death’ struggle at hand are EXACTLY what we need to understand!

“Ki Tetze: What Has VALUE – and Why has Abomination REPLACED It?”
