Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a study of parsha “Acharei Mot” (Leviticus chapters 16 through 18) and the related Scriptures and prophecies that surround it, including the haftorah from Ezekiel chapter 22, and so much that Yahushua commented on and warned about.
In the Erev Shabbat review, the study begins with “after the death” or ‘acharei mot’ of the two sons of Aaron, and the story of the two goats, for YHVH and for Azazel, for “atonement,” of Yom Kippur. The parsha ends with descriptions of, among other things, ‘prohibited sexual relationships’ that are now pretty much the opposite, which speaks volumes.
In the Sabbath day teaching, Mark takes a look at a WHOLE lot more that the world has “turned upside down.” It is no coincidence that not only is the list of ‘prohibited sexual practices’ now essentially being taught in school, but the things for which our Creator warned we would once be “vomited out of the land” have become not only politically-correct, but mandated.
Most people have heard the term “scapegoat,” even if they don’t have a clue where it comes from (hint: this parsha). The “why” of the two goats is certainly a subject of much discussion as well. And Mark suggests that some of that “ambiguity” – or even ‘double-mindedness’ is very much a part of the message.
