Parsha “B’shalach” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

After the completion of the plagues of Egypt, the ‘Exodus’ itself of the ‘mixed multitude’ continues with Parsha B’shalach (Exodus/Shemot 13:17-17:16), from Pharoah, and his ‘tyranny’.

And, without question, this parsha contains the seeds of so many elements that highlight the rest of Scripture.

The Erev Shabbat overview of the whole parsha:

Mark again has to ask a question to set up the Sabbath day midrash:

We’ve heard the ‘central command’ of Moses phrased this way a thousand times, “Let my people GO!”

So, why is the title of this parsha, and the better translation of what REALLY happened, that what came to pass was not just when Pharaoh had done merely that, but had SENT THEM OUT, “shalach-ed’ ’em”? And, THEN, just to make sure they didn’t decide to head right back INTO Egypt and bondage, He brought ’em the long way around, instead of the obvious shortcut?

Certainly, the central theme of the story is so we – all – will know, “ki ani YHVH” – that “I AM Yahuah”. But the word used here for what happened is not simply “let’em go,” but that he SENT them out. And YHVH was very clear, even in the setup, about what must occur.

Here, too, the lesson not only echoes through the centuries, but should strike us, today, particularly, with just how important that distinction is.

Parsha “Bo” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

The story of the plagues of Egypt and the Exodus continues with Parsha Bo (Exodus/Shemot 10:1 – 13:16).

Much of the story is familiar, but this week the final ‘set of three’ plagues concludes, setting up the finale, with the ‘Death of the Firstborn,’ and more importantly, the Passover event that we are to remember, and teach our children, forever.

The Erev Shabbat overview of the whole parsha tells us WHY, more than once, this is so important:

Mark has to ask a question to set up the Sabbath day midrash: With the whole world poised on the brink of nuclear conflagration – arguably at a more dangerous point than any of us have EVER seen in any of our lives – why are we talking about an event, and a feast to commemorate it, that happened so many thousands of years ago?

And the answer, for reasons that will be clear, but may sound a bit familiar anyway, is that understanding His “signs,” and the reasons for them – not just then, but ESPECIALLY now, have never been more vital.

The judgments on the fake gods of modern Egypt are just as real, but His point hasn’t changed, and neither has He.

He “put a difference” between those who were His and the rest of Egypt that first time. But those who became the ‘mixed multitude’ had to make a choice to do so.

Parsha “Vayera” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This week’s regular Torah portion or parsha is “Vayera” (Shemot/Exodus 6:2 through 9:35) and it not only continues the story of the life of Moses/Moshe but begins the first of the “Plagues of Egypt.”

And, again, much of the story is familiar, but it’s the details and PATTERNS that are not only fascinating, but vital to our understanding…especially if we expect that they may be about to repeat, one way or another.

First, the Erev Shabbat overview of the whole parsha:

The Sabbath Day teaching suggests that some of the same confusion people confront today concerning the pending judgment of the US, and the world, is probably more similar to what might have confronted people in ancient Egypt than we might expect. But the themes of this parsha help make that clear:

The One, True REAL Elohim – vs the fakes. Just some of the names have changed.

But NOT the One that really matters!

And just when along the path did people start to come to The Realization? Remember, when we read “Pharaoh’s heart was hardened,” that’s a poor translation. Because there are TWO separate words in the Hebrew.

Are people’s heart’s today “strong” and “courageous” – or just plain stubborn? It clearly makes a difference.

Maybe it even begs a question that helps to frame where we are now, in a sequence that will probably, eventually repeat:

Did Pharaoh have his own “fact checkers” for the ancient version of Twitter, to manage “disinformation” about just who was causing the problems?

EVENTUALLY, Yah “put a difference” between His people, and those that turned out to be “vessels…prepared for destruction.” Can we begin to see what that might look like?

Parsha “Shemot” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa Fellowship for a two-part look at parsha Shemot (Exodus 1:1 through 6:1) — the first installment in the story of the life of Moshe (Moses) and the beginning of The Exodus.

We all almost certainly know much of the story: a Pharoah arose who “knew not Joseph,” wanted to kill of the boy Hebrew babies, and how Moses was put in an ark in the Nile, and rescued by – among others! – Pharoah’s daughter.

But, as we’ve also come to understand, there is FAR more…

First, the Erev Shabbat overview of the whole parsha:

The Sabbath Day teaching is about tackling what is, perhaps never more so than now, a “matter of life and death.” And that really is THE central theme of this new Book as well.

Mark has suggested for several years during the studies of the Exodus that “ki ani Yahuah” is one of the most fundamental descriptions for the ‘moral of the story’:

that ‘kol Israel’ – all of ’em – will know that “I AM Yahuah.”

that Pharoah will know that “ki ani Yahuah.” That all Egypt will know, that we will know, that, ultimately, all the world will know “ki ani Yahuah.”

But there’s also something more ‘subtle,’ and yet also more insidious, and, yes, ‘satanic’ at issue, too. Why does this story make such a clear point – up front – about the midwives who obviously didn’t hear the sun-god-day school lesson about Romans 13 (arguably, “as twisted”.)

Is there a difference after all between Power and Authority? And even Who’s we’re talking about?

“Shemot: ‘Power’ != [ is NOT Equal To! ] ‘Authority’ “

Parsha “Vayechi” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Students of torah have seen for years that there are (at least) two “types and shadows,” or harbingers of the Messiah, the first of which, Mashiach ben Yosef, aka ‘the Suffering Servant,’ and the final installment of the story of his life, is described in this parsha, Yayechi (Genesis 47:28 through the End of the Book.)

First, the Erev Shabbat overview of the whole parsha:

Since this parsha completes the Book of Genesis, it’s understandable that there would be a number of elements, like the ‘death bed actions’ of the patriarch Yakov, that set up so much that is to follow.

But in the Sabbath midrash, Mark suggests that Joseph’s reaction to his brothers’ request to ‘forgive them’ – AGAIN – is one that should strike us as particularly poignant today. After all, he already did. And so did He.

“Vayechi: Already forgiven? Or a ‘Double-dog Dare’ What’s it gonna take?”

Parsha “Vayigash” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa Fellowship for a two-part look at parsha Vayigash, Genesis 44:18 through 47:27, and the conclusion of the story of Yosef’s testing of his brothers, and what Mark refers to as Yehuda’s time to ‘Man Up.’

This week’s story is about what happens when the Plan Comes Together.

And the blessings that follow.

The Erev Shabbat overview of the whole parsha:

And not only does Yosef’s plan pay off, but even better than he expected. This Sabbath teaching explores the implications of that, and what can happen when we in such obedience that we ‘leave room’ for Yah to bless us beyond our own expectations.

It’s also almost certainly true that every single one of us, who will hear this podcast, have been put here, now, “in such a time as this,” for His purposes.

And, given the times and the seasons, that’s quite a statement.

There’s something else in the mix this week, too, in the haftorah portion, from Ezekiel chapter 37. It ends up being both a severe warning, and a great promise.

Parsha “Miketz” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa Fellowship for a two-part look at parsha Miketz, Genesis chapters 40:1 through 44:17, and the story of Yosef’s meeting with Pharoah concerning his dreams, and his elevation to a place where his own dreams so many years before will play out with his brothers.

The ‘Plan of Yah,’ continues to play out, and this week we see how SO much testing begins to bear fruit.

This is the “in-between” part of the story; the climax evidently comes next week. But – isn’t that true today for us? We’re ‘in-between’, waiting to see what’s next…

And first, the Erev Shabbat overview of the whole parsha:

This Sabbath teaching is another of those where Mark realizes it’s time to wax a bit ‘nerdy’. Is it just possible that literally ALL of what we see, learn, and are challenged with, is a form of “filtering”? Of US, that is.

Which, hopefully, helps to explain a LOT. Both then, and now.

Parsha “Vayeshev” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa Fellowship for a two-part look at parsha Vayeshev, Genesis chapters 37 through 40, and the first installment concerning the life of Yosef,

Certainly this story is among the primary examples in Scripture of ‘the Plan of Yah,’ and how it works out, to preserve life.

But there is so much more here, especially in a time where we, now, are on the verge of a breakdown so similar to – in some respect – but ultimately far more deadly than, the ‘seven lean years’ of the time of Joseph. And the time prophesied to follow.

Yosef has been called the model for the ‘suffering servant,’ and type of the Savior to come: Mashiach ben Yosef. And like him, we have much to learn. Which is why his story is so revealing.

The Sabbath teaching explores that aspect of this first part of his life more deeply, starting with the somewhat unusual introduction, which seems to imply an initial level of immaturity; he is, after all, only 17 years old at that point.

Ultimately, the story is about a life which he might not have chosen for himself, at least up front, but which does prepare him for the work he does for YHVH. And to ‘preserve life.’

Parsha “Vayishlach” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This week’s Torah portion is parsha Vayishlach, from Genesis 32:3 through chapter 36.

The story begins with Yakov, his wives, and his sons and daughter returning to the land of “his country and his kin,” after a long absence and obviously still-unresolved conflict.

And this one definitely has a lot to say about dealing with conflict.

First, the parsha itself, from the Erev Shabbat session:

The Sabbath Day teaching begins with some of the contrasts, and the parallels. Yakov has direction, and he has a promise. Several, in fact.

Yet still, he’s human, and when he hears news about his brother Esau coming to meet him, and that he seems to be bringing an army as well, he is “greatly afraid AND distressed.”

Which is where both the contrasts and the parallels begin.

Parsha “Vayetze” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

This week’s teaching will undoubtedly upset some. It should.

If there is something that Scripture forbids, or – worse still, calls “abomination” (toebah in the Hebrew) – the ‘prince of this world’ that now openly runs AmeriKa will not only call it ‘good,’ but teach children, subsidize, and ultimately MANDATE.

This week the disgusting excuse for a “US Senate” passed what they called the “Respect for Marriage [sic] Act” – which has NO respect for what YHVH ordained, but does glorify the Abomination. The Fake Fuhrer, parroting the lie that “love is love,” will be Proud to put his ‘X’ on it.

Meanwhile, the Torah portion Vayetze (Genesis 28:10-32:3) this week is about as opposite an example as you will find.  It’s Very Politically Incorrect, for exactly the reasons that the Adversary and the Whore Church who serves him just plain hates.

And Mark makes it as clear as he can, and as Scripture DOES, why there has never been a more important time to read His Word – ALL of it, As Written! – than now.

It’s time. Buckle up.

First, the parsha itself, from the Erev Shabbat session:

Then, it’s time to confront what may be the biggest not-so-golden calf that has anything to do with ‘marriage’ – or what has been done to it.  Before there was Licensed Sodomy, or puberty blockers for toddlers, or genital mutilation for kiddies, or anything that followed like flies to a corpse, there was “Rome”.  And its modern incarnation.

Yes, Yakov (Jacob) has more than one wife; four, in fact. Yes, that was how YHVH chose to bring about His blessing and His promise – that through a set of unions in accord with His Instruction that the Whore Church doesn’t like at ALL, and maybe the ONLY real marriages that Big Brother has NO ‘respect’ for – “all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Funny, isn’t it. How entrenched is REAL Roman Paganism when so many who claim to ‘follow Him’ would rather take the mark than admit the obvious?

Are we willing to drop the Xtian Baggage?

Ultimately, it is about “Who is to be Master – that is all.”
