Parsha “Beha’alotecha” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Beha’alotecha” (Numbers chapters 8 through 12) is a reading that spans what seems to be a number of ‘disparate’ stories. Is there a common theme?

The Erev Shabbat reading:

The Sabbath Day midrash is all about ‘prophets’. Moses, elsewhere, writes about a prophet ‘like unto Moses’ that will eventually appear. In this parsha, we get some of the details about what that might look like – and ultimately did.

But there’s more, and it includes the haftorah and Brit Chadasha readings, too. And there are a lot of questions that might help us ‘connect some dots.’

Like, who are Eldad and Medad, and why are those two named, when the other 70 that we to help Moses’ burdens were NOT? And who are those two witnesses in Revelation chapter 11?

And why does Moses self-describe as the most ‘meek’ (or is it something more?) man on the planet?

Parsha “Naso” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Naso” (Numbers 4:21 through chapter 7) continues with the numbers – this time the other sons of Levi, and their assignments, but continues with SO much more. Including what Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship suggests is one of the most central in Scripture, even if is perhaps also one of the most ‘overlooked.’

The Erev Shabbat reading:

The Sabbath Day midrash begins with an observation about a common thread that connects every aspect of the apparently disparate elements of this parsha, submission, and the Authority to which it is rendered.

But it is the ‘cup of abominations’ that not only ties the pieces together, but should help us understand what it at play today, and coming to a head ‘soon’.

Parsha “Bemidbar” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Bemidbar” (Numbers 1:1 – 4:20) begins the Book who’s Hebrew name literally means “In the Wilderness.” And that certainly fits.

So, actually, does the English moniker ‘Numbers,’ because it has a lot of those. And this first parsha gives us a major clue as to why that will be so important.

The Erev Shabbat reading begins with another important point: What is commanded is more than a mere ‘census,’ although “headcount” is perhaps a better rendering. But, literally, what Moses is told to do is “lift up the head,” of all of the fighting-age men of Israel. And everything about the process, the description, and what is recorded tells us about His attitude concerning His people.

And that time “in the wilderness” is central to our understanding.

The Sabbath Day midrash connects the ‘greater Exodus,’ promised by Moses and other prophets, the time “in the wilderness,” and the related prophecy of Hosea, and a look at cycles, and timing. We are told to “come out of her,” and not participate in the myriad, obvious, undeniable sine, wickedness, abomination idolatry, and perversion of a world which hates YHVH and His Word.

Sukkot, obviously symbolic of the coming ‘wedding feast,’ is also a time to remember and even practice to be “in the wilderness.”

Can we not start early?

Parsha “Bechukotai” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Bechukotai” (Leviticus 26:2 through the end of the Book) contains one of the two most dramatic sets of ‘blessings and cursings,’ but particularly cursings, in all of Scripture. And it is, as Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa demonstrates, utterly relevant now.

First, the Erev Shabbat reading:

The Sabbath Day midrash starts with a reminder: We are NOT in the land; we’re in exile.

But America’s Founding Fathers knew that. In August, 1776, Ben Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson were tasked with coming up with a suggested design for the Great Seal of the united States. Both Franklin and Jefferson wanted a depiction of then-Israel from the Exodus. Ben Franklin described a scene from the ‘parting of the Red Sea,’ with the inscription, later adopted, that “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God.”

Yet they also clearly understood what was at the heart of the message of Leviticus chapter 26: “IF you will walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments,” you will be blessed. They believed that in this New land, there was a Covenant to be kept.

But now, what is beyond doubt is not merely that it has been broken, but that what He says in verse 15 is true: That this has become a nation, and a world, that rejects His statutes, and has a soul which abhors His laws. And, evidently as a direct result, “those that hate you,” do “rule over you?

And what, exactly, does it look like when YHVH Himself “appoints terror over you?”

Mark Call, of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship, observes that we are about to find out.
But do we consent to that “other master?”

Bechukotai: The Covenant is clearly broken – so Where Are We in Those Curses?”

Parsha “Behar” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “B’har” or ‘in the mount’ [Sinai] (Leviticus 25:1-26:2) is both notable – for one specific English word – and also problematic, because it applies “in the land,” where we’re NOT any more, and arguably because it is even more foreign to our anti-Torah economic and ‘world’ system than almost anything else except the dishonest weight of the Almighty Fiat Dollar itself.

But, ‘Jubilee’ we’ve HEARD of, even if to no real effect.

And, again, what with the world melting down, and at the brink of civil and world war to boot, what would a REAL ‘great reset’ accomplish at this point anyway?

First, the Erev Shabbat reading, where the concept of the ‘yovel’ – or Jubilee – is outlined:

It seems clear from the reading that that one of the primary prerequisites of the ‘shmita’ rest for the land, and then the 50 year ‘yovel’ – or “Jubilee” – was TRUST: that Yahuah would actually do what He promised, so that His people would have sufficient provision for the rest years.

Ultimately, history – and Scripture – shows they did not. We still don’t.

“Proclaim liberty throughout the land, and to all the inhabitants thereof,” is the inscription on the Libery Bell in Philadelphia, and it comes from this parsha, Leviticus 25:10. But that’s just one of the disconnects with Scripture today.

A even bigger one has to do with the entire concept behind that verse. And a world economic system, based on an abomination to YHVH, that will soon demonstrate why His plan was so much better – because a ‘reset’ every 50 years beats societal collapse.

THAT is virtually inevitable now.

And the “Babylonian Exile,” was said to be so that The Land could have its rest. Something that was commanded to be done, that wasn’t. In contrast, much of this next judgment seems to be a function of things that He commanded NOT be done, that are. And are taught in schools, too, as a slap in His face.

Parsha “Emor” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Emor” (Leviticus chapters 21 through 24) continues the theme of “holiness” – but this time for a group of people that many ‘christians’ would now see as irrelevant. After all, we have new ‘priests’ today, and the sons of Aaron seem to have been displaced centuries ago.

And, besides, with the world melting down, and at the brink of civil and world war to boot, what difference does it make?

The Erev Shabbat reading:

The continuing theme of Kedoshim is to “be set apart.” Emor comes next.

And the kohenim, or priests, were not only to be “set apart” themselves, but to teach what that means, and were held to a “higher standard” as well.

Bitterly ironic, however, and especially now, is that what replaced the priests of YHVH were ultimately a pagan imitation, where mandated marriage to virgins was turned on its head, to mandated celibacy – except for what Yahuah made clear was abomination.

Arguably, what has happened since should be no surprise. But it will still be denied.

Emor: Compare and Contrast!

Parsha “Kedoshim and Judgment” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Kedoshim” (Leviticus chapters 19 through 20) is the regular reading for this week, following the Feast of Unleavened Bread. But given the holiday, Mark actually took a look at the first part of the reading last week, with chapter 18, and the introduction to “be holy (or ‘set apart’, y’all!) because I AM.”

The Erev Shabbat reading continues that theme,

The continuing theme of Kedoshim is to “be set apart.” But what should really “leap off the page” at us is that virtually every ‘chuq’ or statute that YHVH lays out for us and tellsl us NOT to do is something that is not only being taught in the ‘public cesspools,’ but espoused on TV, subsidized by taxpayers, and even mandated by Big Brother. It is particularly ironic, then, that the people of Canaan who once did these same things for THEIR gods were “vomited out of the land.”

More eye-opening still, given the circus that now masquerades a court system, and the perversion of “justice” that makes a mockery of the Rule of Law, is the current massive solar storm, resulting from the biggest and most impressive earth-directed set of CMEs, or “Coronal Mass Ejections” in the modern era of being able to record and measure them.

Solar scientists were calling it a G5 Geomagnetic Storm (analogous to an F5 tornado, perhaps) with some even indicating a chance of major power and communications systems disruption or damage, and even a 10 to 12% chance of a “global killshot” event.

It’s almost like a “sign in the sun,” that is hard to deny could constitute a ‘warning’. Nevertheless, most will. And the world continues to “double-down” on evil.

So, is it time YET to “come out of her?”

Parsha Acharei Mot into Kedoshim teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Acharei Mot” (Leviticus chapters 16 through 18) is the regular reading for this week, following the Feast of Unleavened Bread. But we did take a look at that week, Mark decided to look at some of the ‘common elements,’ including statutes and ordinances that span the gap between chapters 18 and then 19, which begins parsha “Kedoshim.”

The Erev Shabbat reading explains the rationale, and the understanding to ‘be ‘qadosh‘ [set-apart, or ‘holy’] because “I AM” qadosh.

It is undeniable, when reading from the end of chapter 28 of Leviticus, and the fact that YHVH says that for committing these ‘abominations’ the land literally “vomited out” those inhabitants. And then He then continues, that “YOU shall be set-apart, For I YHVH am ‘qadosh.’

And looking at the news, and the fact that virtually EVERY SINGLE transgression and outright abomination He outlines is now being subsidized, taught in the cesspools, and even mandated as political correctness – AmeriKa, and most of the West, are due for judgment, if not extreme vomiting out.

What does that say to the rest of us?

Parsha “Acharei Mot – ULB” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Acharei Mot” (Leviticus chapters 16 through 18) is typically read in the timeframe of the Passover, and the week of the ‘Feast of Unleavened Bread,’ or Chag HaMaMatzot, but seems to have more to do with a major element of the Fall Feasts – the Day of Atonement.

The Moed of First Fruits is arguably the day when the Risen Yahushua, as The First Fruit of Adam-kind Himself, made the required offering of Himself for us to Himself, in the place where He has put His Name.

“When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the cohen:

And he shall wave the sheaf before Yahuah, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the cohen shall wave it.

And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he Lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto Yahuah….

And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.” (Leviticus 23:10-12;14)

While Rashi disagrees, and the rabbinic tradition thus ends up with a date which does NOT always fall of the First Day of the week, I contend that (as Yahushua obviously did) the ‘morrow after the WEEKLY Sabbath’ is what the verse means. Which is today (28 April). It is also the day which therefore begins the ‘counting of the Omer’ – seven Sabbaths plus one, or 50 days.

And, perhaps dramatically, if not also ironically, THIS year the ‘sighted new moon’ that marked a “beginning of months” for us (Exodus 12:2) was observed directly by literally millions of witnesses!

The Erev Shabbat reading:

This year there is quite a bit of variance between calendar understandings. Not to mention the fact that the ‘sighted’ new moon this year was a bit more spectacular than usual as well. So Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship has decided to depart from the ‘suggested’ annual Torah cycle reading schedule, and make some observations based on a confluence of events, and teachings.

By now, perhaps it should not surprise us that His Word, and His warnings, are ever-more-important.

Parsha “Metzora” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Metzora” (Leviticus chapters 14 through 15) is almost like “part two” of something many people might tend to skip over anyway.

But don’!

After all, this malady hasn’t been seen in – at least! – many centuries. So how could it possibly be SO relevant to exactly what is happening now?

Start with this question:

How is it that so many people could be duped into injecting something into their bodies that turned out to modify their DNA and destroy their immune system? And many of them even believe two men can have a baby, or that someone who cuts off their genitalia can be magically transformed into some other ‘gender’.

Yet they laugh at people for suggesting that some ancient ritual involving two birds might have something to do with cleansing a skin problem?

You can’t see a ‘virus’, any more than a radio wave. Or a demon. Or a DNA double-helix.

How do we know what is ‘technology,’ and what is ‘magic?’ Or superstition.

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship suggests that the more something in the Bible — especially where there is SO much detail about it! — that doesn’t seem at ALL relevant now, just might end up being vital. Especially when we figure out just what we’re up against.

The Erev Shabbat reading is again about the details:

The Sabbath teaching and midrash lays out the key question. And the conundrum.

Metzora: How can we believe in ‘magic’ but not Scripture?”
