Example: Changing The Word of God

Some quotes from "Oracles of God- Road to Emmanus":

[Rood speaking]

Just weeks before his crucifixion, he asked his disciples "who do men say that I am"?"[Mattithyahu (Matthew) 16:13-17 flashes on the screen]

One responded "Eliyahu"... another... Yochanan ben Zacariah ha cohen...your cousin John the baptist. But who do you say that I am? Kefa replied " You are the Messiah, the son of the living God". You are blessed Kefa. Flesh and blood has not shown this to you. I did not show this to you. My Father in heaven has shown this to you, BUT DON'T TELL ANYONE, because I must go up to Jerusalem, where I will be killed by the Gentiles. [Mattithyahu 16:20-21,20:17-19 flashes on the screen]

Note: No actual scriptures appear, just the verse numbers.

Actual verses:

Matthew 16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. 21 From that time forth began Jesus to show unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

20:17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, 18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, 19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.

This changing of the Word of God was discussed in a letter to SeekGod.ca called: A Reader Comments on Michael Rood's Teachings.

 

Example: Teaching & With Kabbalists, Two House, Lost Tribes, British Israelism

Lost Tribes , British Israel and Two House Teachings

Mystery of Iniquity> 1996 >
Appendix VII >144,000 and the Innumerable Multitude of Revelation 7

"...The lost tribes of Israel have been traced all over northern Asia and Europe.  Modern archaeological finds in Europe show the migration of the Hebrew people throughout the continent.  Many of the royal families of Europe can still trace their roots back to their forefather, Israel.  The ten lost tribes of Israel may not have much, if any, pure blood left in their families.  The vast majority of them do not even know who they are.

When one analyzes the prophecies that were spoken over Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Mannaseh, there are only two nations that fulfill any of these prophecies.  In fact, those two nations fulfill every prophecy concerning the promises to those tribes in the last days.  The two nations are Great Britain and the United States.  When one realizes that the Oracles (Words) of God were committed to his people Israel, one can understand why the Bible houses of England and America have published over 90% of all the Bibles in the world.  The promises of God have been fulfilled right under the noses of those who do not even know their ancient origins. ..."

Michael Rood is teaching ELS or Equidistant Letter Sequence which is actually based on kabbalist gematria, although it is marketed to Christians as Bible codes with other variations in names such as Theomatics.

From Michael Rood's "Oracles of God & The Road to Emmanus" DVD it was stated: :

"There remains an Equidistant Letter Sequence in the Torah, in which every fiftieth Hebrew letter in Genesis spells over and over...Tav-Vav-Resh-Hey...Torah...Torah ...Torah. Exodus is written in the same sequence, but every fiftieth Hebrew letter in Deuteronomy and forty ninth in Numbers, spell Torah backwards. All pointing to the central book Leviticus, where every seventh letter, which is the number of God's perfection, spells Yud-Hey-Vav-Heh...Yahweh, the name of the almighty appears every seven letters. This intricate code could not have been put in place by man, and still allowed the text to make any sense to the reader. This is Yahwehs signature in his instructions, the Torah. These are the written oracles that were committed to the sons of Israel, and they have done a far better job than the Greeks, the Romans, the English, or any modern translators in maintaining the integrity of the scriptures. Just as Sha'ul said " The oracles of God were committed to the Jews", and the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. [Romans 11:29 appears at bottom of screen]

Gematria is a kabbalist teaching that Christians have no business dabbling in. It is the occult. Anyone who has done in-depth research into the kabbalah and it's origins, knows that Jewish historians record it as a vehicle used to bring gnostic doctrine into Judaism, and historically, most rejected it as the occult. Nothing has changed, except perhaps it's acceptance in varied forms in all religions. See: Part VIII... Literal Kabbalah: Gematria & Numerology; Prasch, Hunt & Others; Brad Scott-Part 2: Pure Language & Sacred Name; Brad Scott - Part 3: Gematria & the Apostle Paul

From Road to Emmanus DVD:

 

[Luke 24:28-48 appears at bottom of screen]

When they got to Amais, the stranger acted as if he would continue on, but they compelled him, please...please....please stay with us. At the table, the stranger took unleavened bread in his hands, and blessed the Father with the same blessing that Melchezedech, the melech tzaddik, the righteous king blessed, when he served bread and wine to Avraham.

 

He blessed with the same blessing that all Israel blessed the Almighty, each time they broke bread on the Sabbath. He blessed with the same blessing, that he blessed when he broke bread with those disciples just before his arrest in Gethsemane four days earlier.

 

When he lifted the bread to heaven and said " Baruch atah Adonai Yahweh Eloheynu Melech ha Olam ha motzi lechem min ha arets". Blessed are you Lord Yahweh our God, king of the universe who brings forth bread from the earth. I am the bread of life. I am the fathers provision that was brought forth from the earth.

 

This blessing and this breaking of the bread which you have been doing year after year, century after century, is a kadosh mikrah, a holy rehearsal that was put in place by the melech tzaddik. This bread represents my body which will be broken for you. From this day forward, as often as you do this, do it in remembrance of what I am about to do for you."

 

Now the Lord at the table with two of his hurt and despondent disciples, raised the matzah to heaven and said "Baruch atah Adonai Yahweh Eloheynu Melech ha Olam ha motzi lechem min ha arets. This is my body, which was broken for you." He broke the bread, laid it down, and disappeared before their eyes.

 

[Rood disappears] At that moment they understood that he was the resurrected Messiah.

Once again, we see Michael Rood conjecturing, only this time, he places words into the mouth of Jesus, by having him recite a rabbinic blessing, and adding the name of Yahweh. This blessing can be found nowhere in the New Testament, and this writer could not find it in the Old Testament. Therefore, his teaching this, and changing and adding to the Word of God, can be no more than speculation. Michael Rood goes on to say:

Cleophas cried out " Did not our hearts burn within us as he walked with us by the way and opened unto us the scriptures?" They took off on a dead run back to Jerusalem. They hammered on the door that they had slammed behind them just hours before, and began to stammer out the events that had transpired since their afternoon departure, but before they got the first coherent sentence out of their mouths, the stranger appeared in their midsts and said,

[Michael Rood standing holds his hands up in a kabbalistic position]

 

" Shalom alechem, peace unto you."

 

[Rood then drops hands to side]

 

"And then, starting at Moses, and through all the prophets and writings, he taught them that the Messiah must fulfill the written oracles in the Torah, and the living oracles.... the prophetic shadow pictures that were imbedded in the feasts of the Lord."

Again, Michael Rood changed the Word of God to promote his own agenda. The actual Scripture reads:

Luke 24:25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

It is interesting to note, that Michael Rood also holds his hands up in the same kabbalistic position as he prays over the audience in his show currently being aired on Sky Angel titled “The Raiders of The Lost book”.

Posted to Michael Rood's current website June/2005, as part of the Biblical Calendar section:

"...As the Hebraic Roots/Messianic Movement grows and matures it is beginning to establish its own identity. Where once the Movement was striving to simply be a part of Judaism, now it is standing on its own, and beginning to recognize that like Christianity, Judaism also has some repenting to do, before Israel and Judah can be reconciled. Thus at least part of the Messianic Movement is beginning to stand up to its big brother Judah,...The third vision driving the messianic movement is the Two House teaching. I believe that the Two House teaching is the major force behind most of the recent growth and enthusiasm within the Hebraic Roots/Messianic Movement. The goal of this vision is to help believers recognize and reconcile the two divided houses of the Nation of Israel, the House of Israel, and the House of Judah. This vision is the first to take into serious consideration the large number of Gentile believers in Yashua coming out of the Christian Church to embrace the Torah observant lifestyle. This has lead to the fourth vision within the movement, which is simply to encourage all believers in Yashua to lead a Torah observant Life. I want to be quite clear here, I am not suggesting that these visions are mutually exclusive. But each of these visions has its own goals, which at times may and do conflict with each other. For those seeking to prove that they are still Jewish, or seeking to reconcile with those within Judaism, keeping the Rabbinic Calendar plays a very significant role. But for those who are coming into the movement seeking to learn and observe the teachings of the written Torah, then following the Biblical calendar seems the most logical choice...." >[http://www.michaelrood.com/cal_art.htm > The Great Calendar Debate: By Glenn McWilliams of Torah Keepers >http://www.michaelrood.com/cal_art6.htm]

Michael Rood has been a part of the Two House repertoire of speakers for such events as Marshall or Moshe Koniuchowsky's Your Arms to Israel International (YATI) Hodu's etc., which are proponents of Two House theology. See also: Marshall Koniuchowsky; Tom Mitchell; Ed Nydle; Brad Scott; Avi ben Mordechai; and the Series: The Spreading Hebrew Roots

It should be noted that Michael Rood had befriended the late Reggie White, and it was reported in the mainstream media that prior to his death, Reggie, who had decided to no longer call himself a Christian, had also been studying Hebrew and Torah with the Karaite, Nehemiah Gordon. Monte Judah, with his Torah teachings, claims to also have helped Reggie White change the direction and focus of his beliefs, from Christianity to the first five books of the Bible. Also noted in: Raiders of the Lost Book Equals Raiders of  Nothing of Value  Michael Rood of A Rood Awakening and Nehemia Gordon, US Speaking Tour January 2005  and Michael Rood,  Sky Angel , Ron Wyatt & The National Religious Broadcasters

In 2002, promoting Monte Judah, proponent of Two House doctrine, and selling his tapes, it was noted that while Michael Rood was supporting Monte Judah, Monte Judah was supporting Michael Rood. 

"NEW! Additional Teaching Materials we recommend, From Monte Judah... Monte is a very good Torah teacher and adds a "Jewish insight" into teaching we often miss with our "Western" background.  We hope you enjoy these teachings!  Monte also supports Michael's ministry!  [2002> 6001.com/update1.htm]

On that promotion for Monte Judah and Michael Rood, two teachings were featured with the first one of Monte Judah's teachings, thus:

"Introduction to Torah"
Teaches the four (4) levels of Torah Study.

P'saht - Plain sense
Drash - Study, Sermon
Remez - Hidden, Secret
Sod - Mysterious

This teaching provides a good beginning to a lifetime of study
for the 1st five books of the Bible. Suggested Donation $20

The acronym for the four levels of study Monte Judah was teaching, is called PaRDeS and is based in kabbalistic teaching.

Many are teaching that one must also utilize "PaRDes as a tool for Torah study," with the qualifier, "that this would be within normative rabbinic Judaism (and should be in ours), not necessarily just Kaballah, that is why the rule for being 40 years of age and extensively schooled in Torah was the original prerequisite for understanding Sod." and in order to understand the meaning of the Scriptures.

It needs to be understood that Pardes is an acronym for the understanding of Scriptures via kabbalistic means. It's noteworthy that an article published in the final print edition of the Jerusalem Perspective, written by David Bivin of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research (JSSR) and who is so popular within the Hebrew Roots movement, is not accepted by many within the Hebrew Roots or Messianic movements or Christians embracing these teachings, because of their not understanding or denying the source of kabbalah or Pardes:

“... students of the Kabbalah speak of Pardes ...which is an acronym derived from the initial letter of each of the four terms (p-r-d-s)....According to the late Professor Gershom Scholem, pioneer researcher in the field of Kabbalah, Moses ben Shem Tov of Leon was the first known writer to mention the acronym Pardes. He did so about 1290 in a composition called Sefer Pardes. Moses ben Shem Tov also wrote The Zohar, which became the most influential work of the Spanish Kabbalists...The Kabbalists were mystics par excellence, and they pursued vigorously Scripture's concealed meanings. They aspired to an elevated spiritual awareness by gaining access to concealed knowledge through scrutinizing each letter of the biblical text and through ecstatic ascents into heaven...Their longing for esoteric knowledge may be traced back in part to earlier Gnostic speculations. Such speculations left their imprints on the Kabbalah...The acronym Pardes belongs exclusively to the domain of the Kabbalah.”
 
Quoted from an article titled:
 
“Medieval Jargon on First-century Lips”
Author: David Bivin
Jerusalem Perspective
Page 33
July-September 1999 #56

A book published in 1984 by David Bivin (Director of the JSSR) and Roy Blizzard has formed the basis of much Hebrew Roots' doctrine. The following excerpts from Understanding The Difficult Words Of Jesus represent the JSSR viewpoint on the lack of originality of the Greek New Testament: 

"...Our reasons for writing this book are not only to show that the original gospel was communicated in the Hebrew language; but to show that the entire New Testament can only be understood from a Hebrew perspective. 2.

"It cannot be overemphasised, that the key to an understanding of the New Testament is a fluent knowledge of Hebrew and an intimate acquaintance with Jewish history, culture, and Rabbinic Literature."

Jesus Christ is identified by the JSSR as being "like other Jewish sages of that time". Please see  Jacob Prasch & The Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research for more on the JSSR

Monte Judah, a proven false prophet, continues in the vein of 'prophet,' as stated on his website,

"Our mission is to provide prophetic insight and understanding concerning the return of Yeshua the Messiah to the Earth" [http://www.lionlamb.net/]

Here we have the binding together of kabbalists, Two House, Lost tribes and British Israel teachings.

In the September/October 2005 issue of Monte Judah's newsletter, Yavoh, he presented his teaching of the falsehood of the book of Hebrews, and why all should reject it and uphold the requirement to be under the Law of the Old Testament, thereby negating the New Covenant and being saved by grace through Jesus Christ.

Example: Limiting the Source of Truth

 

From Road to Emmanus DVD:

"....The Hebrew Scriptures expose the perverted traditions of manmade religions, and offer reality to those who hunger and thirst for truth. Sha'ul, commonly known as the apostle Paul, wrote that we should not be misled by traditions and commandments of men, but rather rely upon the tested and proven source of truth the Torah. The five books of Moses. The children of Israel camped at Mt Sinai for an entire year as Moses passed on the instructions from the Creator. These instructions, called Torah in Hebrew, taught us how to govern ourselves, and throw off the shackles of man made religious, political, and economic systems. Yahshua, or as many know Him by his Gentile nickname "Jesus", warned his followers that traditions propagated by religious leaders are like leaven, or yeast which once mingled with dough cannot be removed. Without the Torah of God, it is impossible to separate the traditions of men, from the rules of the Almighty..."

God knows the end from the beginning. Therefore, after the New Covenant was fulfilled in Christ, the Scriptures include the Old Testament and the New Testament.

Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
 

3:4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

 

2 Peter 3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

Many in the "Hebrew Roots" movement, like Michael Rood, like to disregard that the Bible includes all sixty six books. Rather, they believe that the truth to be followed is bound within the first five books of the Bible, called Torah.  Their reasoning is that the apostles quoted exclusively from the Old Testament, and that the New Testament was just letters that got circulated, and they were never considered Scripture.

 

First, aside from the Torah or first five books, What happened to the Prophets and the writings? Aren't they also Scripture? The Scriptures are clear about what is to be our source of Truth for the Word of God, and starting with the very words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who showed that the apostles words were authoritative and would be used to bring individuals to Christ:

Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

 

John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

The Apostle John wrote:

John 20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

The Apostles Paul wrote and Peter later wrote and confirmed that Paul's writings were Scriptures:

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

2 Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

One last example by the apostles themselves, which shows the New Testament writings must be considered Scripture. The apostle Paul quoted two verses as being one Scripture. The first part was from Deuteronomy 25:4, written in Hebrew and the last part was from Luke 10:7, written in Greek.

1 Timothy 5 18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

Here are the sourced Scriptures that make up Paul's statement:

Deuteronomy 25:4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

Luke 10:7 {which is Jesus speaking} 7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

 

Examples: Michael Rood Changing Theology

 Michael Rood stated in his Calendar articles, that:

"Insight into the creation of the calendar, from 2000...The Biblical Hebrew year 6001 marks the first year of the Seventh Millennium, the seventh "day," the Day of the LORD. This epoch did not begin on January 1, 2000 as that date is a thoroughly fictitious and impertinent invention of man. We must look to the Creator’s calendar, which points to Aviv 1, 6001 (which we calculated to have occurred on May 5, 2000: sundown in Jerusalem) as the beginning of the seventh period of one thousand years since creation...

On May 5th 2000, the ancient Mayan sun calendar came to an abrupt halt – on the last day of man’s millennia.  Many, ignoring the testimony of the Hebrew Scriptures, expected the world to end on that date.  If our calculations are correct, it was the end of an age and the year 6001, the Day of the LORD has begun.

Did we expect that the Messiah would arrive on Aviv 1?  No! In the Hebrew Scriptures we read of the Great and Notable Day of the LORD. This Day, or Millennium, starts out with bloodshed, fire, pillars of smoke that darken the sky, plagues, and all manner of pestilence. Then comes an era of peace with the Messiah as King over all. The Messiah will not come immediately, but after a time of tribulation. And of course, we expect the prophet Elijah, who must come before the Messiah.  When shall we expect Elijah? When will the Messiah arrive? And what does this have to do with the Ark of the Covenant?  ..." [2004> And the 7th Day.. http://www.michaelrood.com/cal_art5.htm]

Michael Rood seems to be a man of theological contradictions. The "seventh day" or "seventh millennium" as he states it, would be referred to as the sabbath, which means "intermission" in Hebrew. From Strong's Concordance:

07676. tbv shabbath, shab-bawth' intensive from 7673; intermission, i.e (specifically) the Sabbath:--(+ every) sabbath.

In Greek for the New Testament> 4521. sabbaton sabbaton, sab'-bat-on
of Hebrew origin (7676); the Sabbath (i.e. Shabbath), or day of weekly repose from secular avocations (also the observance or institution itself); by extension, a se'nnight, i.e. the interval between two Sabbaths; likewise the plural in all the above applications:--sabbath (day), week. See Hebrew 07676 (shabbath)

If the Seventh Millennium is to be viewed as the seventh day, which would mean the sabbath upon which God rested, why would Michael Rood repeatedly prophesy that the first days of that "Seventh Millennium" would begin with bloodshed? Sabbath 'rest is not the same as God's wrath. The Scripture that he is ignoring, is :

Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

The Mystery of Iniquity > 1996 version:

"...By grace, we Gentiles will share in the same victory.  God’s “called out” spans time, nations, and dispensations.  He will gather his elect from all ages, at the last trump resurrection of the just.

There is now no difference between Israel and GentileWe are all one in Jesus Christ.  The words of Jesus to his followers are as pertinent to us as they were to his twelve Apostles.  To propound that the words of Christ to his disciples can be dismissed under the guise of dispensationalism, or “convenient avoidance,” is not only dishonest, but will be indefensible before the throne of God on judgment day..." [Chapter Five, Dispensationalism and the Secret Pre-tribulation Rapture: Return to Sender]

Latter versions or "The 7th Millennium edition of The Mystery of Iniquity"

"By grace, Gentiles will share in the same victory. God’s “called out” spans time, nations, and “dispensations”. He will gather his elect from all ages, at the last trump resurrection of the just.

There is now no difference between Jew and Gentile if we are in the Messiah. The words of Jesus are as pertinent to Gentile if we are in the Messiah. The words of Jesus are as pertinent to Gentile followers as they were to his twelve apostles. To propound that the words of the Lord to his disciples can be dismissed under the guise of dispensationalism, or “convenient avoidance”, is not only dishonest, but will indefensible before the throne of God on judgment day..." [Chapter Five, Dispensationalism and the Secret Pre-tribulation Rapture: Return to Sender]

 

Example: Undocumented Research & Inaccurate Presumptions

Michael Rood is being promoted as, "theologian, scholar, Bible teacher, researcher", and having or giving, "historically accurate interpretation and understanding".

From Raiders of the Lost Book tape aired on Sky Angel:

"...Then we see that in the Tammuz cave, right below the King David hotel overlooking the Hinnom valley across from Jaffa gate, in that Tammuz cave on Easter Sunday at the Easter sunrise service, the Canaanite priest of Ishtar would impregnate virgins on the altar to Easter in that very cave, and then a year later, they would sacrifice those three month old infants, and dye the eggs of Easter in the blood of sacrificed infants.

If you walk out of that cave to this very day on Easter Sunday, and walk into Jaffa gate, you walk into the magnificent cathedral of one denomination, and there on the altar on Easter Sunday, will be the eggs of Easter dyed one color...BLOOD RED.

If you ask the people sitting in the congregation where did this tradition come from, they have no idea...but now you know."

Since it is difficult biologically for a woman to conceive on command according to monthly cycles, how did the Canaanite priest pull off this supposed act? Where is the proof? This writer must ask,  who, and how many members in that congregation that Michael Rood is describing, did he interview and quote as having said they did not know anything about the egg? We are called to "Prove all things."

The denomination that Michael Rood is referring to is the Greek Orthodox Church. Michael Rood stated that the people within that congregation have no idea why they do this. However, if you source writing's from the Greek Orthodox Church, they do in fact have a published reason why they perform this tradition, whether one were to agree with the practice or doctrine of the church or not.

THE EASTER RED EGG

The Easter Egg has many meanings

The white color, represents the white marble tomb, where Jesus Christ's body was laid after He was taken down from the Cross. Also the egg is a symbol of life. From the tomb life came out, the Risen Lord.

DYING THE EGGS RED.

THE GREETING " CHRIST IS RISEN-TRULLY IS RISEN".

The orthodox faithful dyes the eggs red because the Roman soldiers put on Jesus Christ a red cloak, as King of the Jews, while they were mocking and torturing Him.

There is also a recorded historical event and a miracle that happened 2 years after the resurrection of Christ, outside Jerusalem.

Mary Magdalene was carrying a basket full of white eggs. She heard the new governor after Pontius Pilate will be passing from there. On the middle of the road she put the basket full of the white eggs and stooped the Governor saying:

"Welcome to Jerusalem oh Respectful Governor! I wish you will be righteous to the citizens of Jerusalem and will not be unrighteous like your predecessor Pontious Pilate. He, in vain, crucified the Son of God, Jesus Christ. He was threatened and He put Him on the Cross and He resurrected on the third day"

A more complete explanation of their traditions can be found here:

http://www.stgeorgepiscataway.org/holyweek.html

Michael Rood goes on to warn us about the contamination of Christmas, and then he makes this summary:
 
...What I've just described as Babylonian sun god worship, you have known all of your life as Christianity. That should shake all of us up, because this is exactly against the commandments of The Almighty. And He said “ you shall not add to the commandments or the word I give you. You shall not take away. You shall do exactly what I tell you to do. You said that you would obey me, now, I am going to send you a few false prophets, and we are going to see if you are really going to obey me, or if you just want to get into a real easy religious trip.”
After reflecting on the many failed prophecies of Michael Rood, and his altering of the Word of God, the only thought that comes to this writers mind is, how ironic.

God calls people, Jew and Gentile to repent and those who have gone after false gods to reject them, and instead worship Almighty God. Most Christians, and especially evangelical or fundamentalist Christians have not 'known' Tammuz, Nimrod and the host of false gods Michael Rood elaborates extensively on. That, while teaching about them while citing, "learn not the ways of the heathen". That is because they have never worshipped them, nor have they embarked on any virgin impregnation on pagan holidays, sacrificed their or anyone's children, nor been drawn to learn their ways, because the focus of worship is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, not some false god. Unlike Michael Rood, who goes into great depth elaborating on the activities of these false gods and goddesses and while teaching these things goes so far as to ask his audiences if they have ever seen pictures of the various naked and "endowed" goddesses, and then elaborates with great relish, after stating that to mention their names is, for example:

"Every time you use the word Easter you are violating what it says in Exodus 23:12. Do not let the names of other gods come out of your mouth." [1999>The 70th Week Ministry of the Messiah> Tape 3 of 4]

Incidentally Exodus 23:12 reads: Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.

The whole foundation Michael Rood is building on is sinking sand. And he and others like him are counting on people not knowing the Word of God and not questioning or proving what he says. Rather, some are having their 'ears tickled' by what they want to believe is true because they are disillusioned, not grounded in the Word of God or do not really know Jesus Christ. And that will lead them to not being 'lovers of Truth.'


2 Timothy 4:3

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
 

2 Timothy 3:13-14

13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
