Michael Rood Is A False Prophecy Teacher

This End Times Deception study will focus on Michael Rood, who positions himself as a Messianic teacher.

Some Christians tend to trust Michael because he cites Hebrew sources. Michael claims that one cannot understand the New Testament from Greek, or from a Greek translation.

The irony is that his Revelation prophecy fulfillment explanations are wrong, so apparently understanding the ‘Hebrew’ version of Revelation hasn’t helped him.

I’ve used the Greek and English and I understand it just fine.  That’s proven out on the Revelation Timeline Decoded website.

Who is Michael Rood?

According to a brochure Rood produced to promote his seminars, “Michael John Rood is an ordained nondenominational Christian minister.” His “ordination” is from a cult called The Way International (TWI) required only minor instruction in an unaccredited TWI program.The Way International was a free love cult that was founded by Victor Paul Wierwille, who denied the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Many of Rood’s teachings and practices are drawn from this cult which was widely denounced by Christian leaders and TWI’s ex-followers alike.

Michael Rood rose to fame when he dogmatically and bombastically predicted that the prophetic “Day of the Lord” would begin on the Feast of Trumpets in the fall of 2000. Of course that didn’t happen, so he made excuses.

Should you trust someone who got his education from a cult and who has past false prophecy teachings?

He points to a futuristic one-man antichrist, but the saints have been proclaiming that it is the office of the papacy for 1,000 years; many of them paying for their witness with their blood.

The Protestant Reformers rightly identified that the office of the papacy fulfills Bible prophecy as the Little Horn of Daniel 7, the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation.

Micheal Rood is not telling you those things, which deflects blame away from Rome.

He points to a futuristic 70th week of Daniel, the supposed 7-year tribulation period.

The concept of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel is a deception from the Jesuits of Rome, who created it to deflect blame away from the antichrist Popes.

There is no future 7-year tribulation period, as the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled on time, after the 69th week; when Messiah and His disciples confirmed with the Jews (for seven years) that He is the promised Messiah who ratified the everlasting covenant with His blood, as the Passover Lamb.

The seven years ended after the Jewish leaders stoned Stephen to death, marking their final rejection of their promised Messiah. Then the book of Acts clearly shows a dramatic shift, as the Gospel was also preached to the Gentile nations.

Here’s a study series which proves that the 70th week was fulfilled on time, after the 69th week.

Read The 70th Week Of Daniel Deception

He teaches that Jesus ministry was only 1 year long, instead of 3 1/2.

Here’s three events in John where it records that Jesus went to Jerusalem.

At the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, John 2:13, “And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem

John 6:4 “And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

At the end of Jesus’ ministry, John 13:1, “And before the feast of the passover, Jesus knowing that his hour hath come, that he may remove out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own who are in the world–to the end he loved them.”

Michael Rood claims that John 6:4 was added later and should not be in the Bible text. He says this leaves only two Passovers, one when Jesus started His ministry, and the other when Jesus was crucified, thus the one-year ministry. So let’s look to see if there is evidence that John 6:4 was added later.

In 175 AD Irenaeus wrote an opposing response to Gnostic teachers, who claimed the ministry was one year in an attempt to have it correspond to the pagan zodiac.
(Interestingly, Michael Rood’s calendar is based in part on the Zodiac calendar, and he also needs Jesus’ ministry to be one-year in order to make his teachings work.)

Irenaeus used John 6:4 as evidence to counter the Gnostic teachers, so the passage certainly existed in Irenaeus’ copy of John.  This refutes Rood’s claim that it was added later.

Not only do we have the testimony of Irenaeus in Lyons that the passage existed but P66 and P75, the two most important manuscripts we have of John’s Gospel (both date from about the 200 AD), contain the verse.

p66-manuscript-john-6-4Here’s a link to the P66 where it contains a list of verses that are on the manuscript, with John 6:4 included on the list http://www.earlybible.com/manuscripts/p66-Joh-33.html

The top Bible scholars do not say that John 6:4 should not be included.  This includes Albert Barnes’ Notes on the Bible, Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, Coke’s Commentary on the Holy Bible, John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible, Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary, John MacArthur’s Study Bible, Matthew Henry’s Whole Bible Commentary and Pulpit Commentary.

Once you throw out Michael’s argument that John 6:4 shouldn’t be included in the Bible, you can clearly see that the book of John mentions three Passovers, which proves that Jesus ministry was more than two years long.

And that destroys Michael Rood’s theory about Jesus one-year ministry.

Also of note is that his teaching is in direct opposition to the Word of God in the 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy, which clearly defines a 3 1/2 year ministry of the Messiah.

It says that the Messiah would appear after the 69th week, in other words in the 70th week, which is 7 years long. His ministry started when He was baptized and anointed, and He began preaching the New Covenant to the House of Israel.

Daniel 9:27 then tells us, “But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.” It’s saying that He would be ‘cut off‘ (Daniel 9:26), meaning crucified, in the middle of the 7 years, which caused the need for the temple sacrifices to end.

In this video, Michael Rood teaches about the futuristic “confirmation of the Covenant” that initiates Daniel’s 70th week.

This is false teaching, as the covenant of the 70th week of Daniel is the covenant that Messiah came to ratify with His blood as the Passover Lamb.

Here’s more detailed studies on the 70th week of Daniel, which prove that is lasted 3 1/2 years:

Proof That Jesus 3 1/2 Year Ministry Occurred In The 70th Week of Daniel

The Anointing Of Christ Started The 70th Week Of Daniel

Some of what Michael Rood teaches is true and he makes some excellent points about the Holy Feasts of God, but he has a track record of false teachings, and I would warn people to stay away from him.

Titus 1:10-11, 13-14 warn us, “For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching things they should not teach…For this reason reprove them severely so that they may be sound in the faith, not paying attention to Jewish myths and commandments of men who turn away from the truth

For the record, I don’t observe Easter, Christmas, Halloween and Sun-day worship.

I observe the Heavenly Father’s seven Holy Feast days which Messiah is fulfilling to redeem His set-apart saints, and I observe the Scriptural Sabbath. I don’t eat pork or shellfish, as our Heavenly Father forbade them because they are unclean animals due to the fact that their bodies are filled with toxins from being scavengers.

I’ve come out of Babylonian-Roman Christianity and on my Come Out Of Her website I expose those man-made teachings.

  1. Hmmm, I am a simple man trying to understand the complexity of the bible. I believe in Jesus as the savior. What books should be included in the bible? These are never ending questions or should I say arguments as to what is the truth? I try to understand but some people like me don’t have the skills to remember or analyze it all. What I do know is that the Jesus of the gospels is the example. Love your neighbor as yourself and be good to your enemies. Even as he hung on the cross he said to forgive those who beat him to a pulp. The nature of Jesus is one of forgiveness and love. The arguments never end. We need to be careful in the debate. I don’t think the son of God likes finger pointing in either direction. I could be wrong here but Jesus was the most loving person ever. Anyway this is my two cents as I don’t wish to offend anyone.

    • Thank you for your comment Glenn. The nature of Messiah was to confront people who taught false doctrine. He rebuked the Jewish leaders many times, calling them hypocrites, blind guides, fools, full of dead men’s bones, full of iniquity, serpents and a generation of vipers.

      And their punishment was carried out during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70, when Jerusalem, the temple and the Jewish nation were desolated.

      Showing how what Michael Rood teaches about prophecy fulfillment is not about hate, it’s about proclaiming the truth which reveals more of the glory of our beloved Messiah.

    Thank you



  3. Regarding John 6:4. If it wasn’t added by someone, if not Eusubius, then it was the only time that Jesus did not go to Jerusalem for Unleavened Bread, one of the 3 feasts where all men had to appear in Jerusalem. Plus, He fed the people unleavened loaves of bread (leaven was to be removed from their life at that time), and the Jews came down to challenge Him and test Him. I doubt that they would travel from Jerusalem to check on Jesus’ ministry in Galilee if Passover was nigh. Whether His ministry was 3.5 or 1 year, well, does it matter how long the “acceptable year” was? (Isa 61:2; Lk 4:19) It is interesting, though, that, according to Brother Rood, 70 weeks (from His baptism until the outpouring of the Holy Spirit) was 490 days (70×7), If you count the days that Jesus did not work (the Sabbaths, etc), they total 130 days: 70 Sabbaths + 8 High Holy Days + 3 days in the grave + 49 days after His resurrection). 490 days minus 130 days is 360 days, the Biblical year! Just sayin. . . .

  4. I agree there are major issues with Rood. But after reading your beliefs, you are the one with worse anti-biblical crap going on. Watch your own massive log in your own eye first.

    • Ditto on the above…and Babylonian ROMAN 😱
      Christian? The Roman Empire indulged himself in the Catholic church and now it is the Roman Catholic church and they have nothing in common with Christianity or Jesus’s Yahweh’s teachings. I really do like Michael rudes chronological Bible and when he does a show with Nahemia Gordon. If Michael root is good enough or nahimia Gordon he’s certainly good enough for me. May Yehovah be with you

  5. So where do I find easter, christmas, halloween and sun-day worship in the Greek scriptures or any Bible manuscript?

    Did Jesus really tell us that the Pharisees sit on the seat of Moses and everything they say that we are to do?

    Did Jesus really say He would be in the earth 3 days and 3 nights or about 3 days and only 2 nights?

    Did Jesus really say it’s okay to eat swine when He was sitting at the table with others and eating bread? Where did swine come into the context that it could be included in “what goes into the stomach”?

    I could go on an on but if you don’t see the plain and simple man made traditions that originated from pagan sun-god worship that are now church doctrine you will not see the false prophets in Christianity.

    • Stephen, you mistakenly think that I observe easter, christmas, halloween and sun-day worship. I observe the Heavenly Father’s seven Holy Feast days which Messiah is fulfilling to redeem His set-apart saints, and I observe the Scriptural Sabbath.

      Messiah said many times that He would rise ON THE THIRD DAY, not after the third day. https://comeoutofher.org/messiah-rose-on-the-third-day/

      I don’t eat pork or shellfish, as our Heavenly Father forbade them because they are unclean animals due to the fact that their bodies are filled with toxins from being scavengers.

      I’ve come out of Babylonian-Roman Christianity and on my Come Out Of Her website, which is listed on the right side of this website, I expose those man-made teachings. https://comeoutofher.org

      • I worry that you are adding your own context to the Bible. Your explanation for why pork or shellfish is unclean is unBiblical. “I don’t eat pork or shellfish, as our Heavenly Father forbade them because they are unclean animals due to the fact that their bodies are filled with toxins from being scavengers.”

        “And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you.”

        “But all creatures in the seas or streams that do not have fins and scales—whether among all the swarming things or among all the other living creatures in the water—you are to regard as unclean.”

        The Bible doesn’t qualify either one for their toxicity or status as a scavenger.

        • Keith, The Bible doesn’t have to declare why the Father forbid them, to make His command valid. I was simply adding context to the reason that the Father forbid certain types of animals is because of their role to consume waste to clean up the ecosystem. I’ve not added to Scripture or done anything wrong. The nature of the pig and shellfish didn’t change when Messiah died, so they are still unclean animals.

    • Michael Rood teaches some truth about theology, to expose the man-made traditions that most Christians are believing. But that’s not the subject of this article, which is about what Rood teaches about prophecy fulfillment, which is false. Is he telling you who is the antichrist beast and false prophet?

      Is he showing you how most of the prophecies in Revelation have already been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years, and that there’s not much left to be fulfilled before Messiah returns? No!

      Seek truth, not to defend a belief! https://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/

      • David, I’ll start looking around and search for the truth of what’s really going on in the world. Obviously you’ve been under a rock for the last year, and have no idea what is really going on because you probably watch mainstream media. You need to dig a little deeper than what you’ve been digging to find out that Michael rude is really speaking the truth! He can see deep deep deep deep in to the past Into a timeline you and I cannot see… If that doesn’t make any sense to you then maybe you should watch some of his recent videos and he will tell you all about it… You need to quit pushing your own agenda and start looking into what your beliefs are. Many blessings to you and your family. And may the Holy Spirit shake you abundantly… 🙂

      • Firstly Debbie I’m assuming by your name that you are a woman ? Do you Read your scripture of Christ’s words through His Disciples? Women are forbidden from teaching the Holy Word of God to Men .
        You need to repent and remain silent .
        This is a serious matter and perhaps the Holy Spirit is Not the one guiding you at this time ?
        Remember, the Devil comes disguised as an Angel of light . And can quote the scripture.
        We must live by Every Word of God .


        • The only Biblical relationship in which a woman is submissive to a man is the husband-wife relationship and in the OT, the daughter-father relationship when she was still living under his roof. Since the word translated “woman” in Greek is the same word as “wife,” you need to reread those passages where it seems to be saying that women should be subservient to men. After all, there was Phoebe, there was Priscilla who taught Apollos, there were many women who played a role in the Gospel. Women were baptized in the Holy Spirit and Mary and others were among those who spoke in tongues on Pentecost. Remember, there is neither male nor female. There was Eudia, Syntyche, Nympha, Junia (all of which, by the way, underwent gender changes in the KJV!).Check out the Greek; they are all females! And Phillip of Acts 21:8, 9 had 4 daughters who did prophesy. Where do you think they prophesied? Prophecy was a gift to edify the body of Christ. In Acts 2:17, it says that women also will be baptized in the Holy Spirit, and also prophesy. Also,1 Timothy 2:11, 12 and I Cor 14:24 both relate to what goes on in a gathering of believers. In the Corinthian verse, the wives’ talking was not “edifying”, a theme in the previous verses. They were probably just talking, not edifying, not prophesying, not sharing the Word or Psalm, etc. Or perhaps they were shouting out to their husbands, who most likely were sitting separately from the women, which was the way the synagogue was set up. So, I encourage you and all the Lord’s dear believers in Christ to study this out yourself so that the Lord’s handmaidens are free to operate in the Holy Spirit without being muzzled!

  6. True people of Meshiaj Listen carefully!!
    Come out of her( BABYLON DESEPTION CHRISTIANITY RELIGION), my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;

  7. You are proven to be a false witness from the first paragraph. I’ve been listening to Michael Rood’s teachings for years and there is no way, zero, natta’, not, that he would ever call himself a Rabbi, in fact he’s said just the opposite. Rood ain’t perfect but I thank YEHOVAH for him because when I prayed for answers Rood is the brother He sent.

    There are seven things God hates, and two of them are a lying tongue and a false witness, Proverbs 6:16-19.

  8. Why are there so many denomination in cristianity if there is only one Holy Spirit Ruah Kodesh ?Now with covi 19 the real Elohim is showing the falsehood of christianity and false teachers.Who came out of Rome and keep the same so called holy week.From Friday to Sunday there ate not 3 days and 3 nights according to Jonahs time in the belly of the great fish .The 3 kings fantasy in christianity is also a ferry tale.

    • They are divisions because of Roman Emperor Constantine and the harlot church of Rome, which created a false Christianity, and has created many harlot churches.

      And the harlot church of Rome has countered the Reformation, and brought churches back under her influence.

      I teach people to come out of Roman Christianity. But sadly, many are coming out of the ditch of Roman Christianity, only to fall in the ditch on the other side of the narrow road, and they are following Jewish fables. https://comeoutofher.org

      • Don’t call it her influence please. As we all know, a women’s influence was never allowed or wanted in the papacy. You are only vilifying and demeaning the female by using that description for a supposed evil. Haven’t women carried enough blame since Eve already? Leave the association of a female’s influence out of your fight with Rome.

        • Scripture points to ‘her’ so it’s odd to tell me to not point to her.

          With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of HER fornication.” Revelation 17:2

          So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a WOMAN sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” Revelation 17:3

          And the WOMAN was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:” Revelation 17:4

          And upon HER forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:5
          And I saw the WOMAN drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:6
          And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the WOMAN, and of the beast that carrieth HER, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.” Revelation 17:7

          And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make HER desolate and naked, and shall eat HER flesh, and burn HER with fire.” Revelation 17:15-16

          And the WOMAN which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:18

          Just like the bride of Messiah is referred to as a woman, the harlot Roman Catholic Church is the harlot woman.

          Keep learning and growing in The Way!

          • David you are mean, not very Christian like, You can disagree and people can discuss but be constructive about it please follow Yahweh’s example ❤

  9. Christians are attacked for showing truth, thats how it is and how it will always be. I watched his content for a while, recognizing false teaching is necessary.

      • I don’t know if it’s so much that Christians are attacked, at least I would hope not, now the Catholic church is another thing talk about false prophets, I don’t understand how Catholics like me, was Catholic and I consider myself a Christian, growing up in a Catholic school and the teachings of jesus, yahweh, and not see that the Holy Roman Catholic Church has nothing in common with Christianity also known as Yahweh Ministry. The Catholic church has change God’s word Jehovah word and his law they’ve broken every commandment in the Bible I wish people would stop supporting the Roman Catholic Church!!!
