Posted on 02/01/2014 12:52:02 PM PST by Errant
There are few prophetic events that stir the imagination more than the mark of the beast. For millennia, Bible scholars have attempted to decipher this cryptic code, but not until the end of the age did we have the geo-political world line up so precisely as to offer a plausible explanation that links global religious fanaticism with the ability (or inability) to buy and sell without a mark in the right hand or forehead.
Tonight, on Shabbat Night Live, Michael Rood will take you into the first half of the mark of the beast expose in preparation for understanding its relationship in the upcoming demise of the new world order.

If you’re reading this on a smartphone, I
I’ve got bad news for you...
Rood is considered a false teacher/prophet in the so-called “Hebrew Roots” movement who claims to teach Christians the “Hebrew roots of the Christian faith” through the study of the Jewish foundational teachings.
Rood is associated with the most unbiblical form of the Hebrew Roots movement...he does say some things that are in true...as with most false religions and cults who “borrow” Christian teachings to establish their own following... So one is wise to consider that it’s been shown over and over one of the greatest snares used by the enemy of men’s souls is the mixing of truth and error, which Michael Roods teachings are filled with.
We are already been given a preview of The Mark.
If you do not think and act according to the dictates of the leftist religion - you will be prohibited from making a living.
ObamaCare will be the implementation of that system as an institution. we are already witnessing businesses being discriminated against by courts due their religious opposition to the doctrines of Abortion and free sex. We all know with this regime, that healthcare will end up being decided on political ideology, voting habits, and whether or not you fit within the preferred class.
The Mark is how you think and act in accordance with an evil regime and an evil society.
If you want to eat, learn to seig-heil your rulers and the zeitgeist of society. That’s the Mark.
No thanks, I'll kill my own food. Rulers, well they will get theirs as well.
I don’t follow Rood nor do I subscribe to the Hebrew Roots thing.
That said, given the amount of evil rising in this nation and the world - why is it that Christians seem to only prefer attacking other Christians?
If we want to debate the substance of what is preached or stated, let’s do that.
Let’s not continue to kill the messenger and broad-brush denigrate anyone and everyone who is not of the same cookie-cutter denominational understanding.
Persecution is coming on the church here, and upon all Believers who hold fast to the basic tenets of faith without compromise.
Do not allow yourself to get ensnared into the betrayal of other brethren that Christ said would come in Matthew 24 because iniquity abounds.
I would rather Christians use the wasted energy they spend assaulting one another and refocus their guns on assaulting true evil rising amongst us.
We can spend time showing one another the way more perfectly once we have restored the liberty that allows us to worship as the Spirit leads us without state interference and risk.
Yuk! I can’t imagine how (incredibly bad) the “rulers” might taste like.. I find them (even before we put them on the fire) very, extremely distasteful. And, I already belch up McD’s....
better to just plant a nice little garden !?
(smile smile smile)
Thanks for the warning. When I find an error, I'll be sure and skip over it. So far (after listening to most of his teachings), I find him to be pretty much the most knowledgeable person on the planet when it comes knowing the scriptures, and after a considerable amount of checking for myself.
Recommend you at least view the last 20 mins. You might be surprised by what he has to say. I think you will find it well worth your time. Surprised me and eschatology has been an interest of mine for many years now. His conclusion is kind of what I've been leaning toward myself (hint: ISLAM).
This whole series I have linked concerns end times.
Thank you! Well said!
Paul said it best...........
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1: 8)...........
Anyone who preaches that we are still under the law as Rood does, is preaching ‘a different Gospel’..........Read Galatians. This isnt new and has been thoroughly addressed in scripture.
Jesus Christ is the living Word of God. Not the Torah. The law never brought salvation or justification.
Galatians 2: 16
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
Trying to apply scripture to some perceive defect in Rood (Like all of us, I quite sure he has many defects) that you find personally abhorrent, isn't productive in the least.
There is more than enough history and debates that have time and again shown Rood as a false teacher looking for his own following.
When any individual attempts to spread the teachings of a false teacher, who minces truth with their own false teachings I will always warn...as most do.
One of the first indications of people who are susceptible to these false teachers are the immediate accusations that exposing them is “attacking”......and that is a ploy of the enemy to suppress the truth and from warning against those who are using Christian teachings to advance their cult....Rood is one of them.
Least we forget Jesus was very direct with religious teachers who wanted to put people back under the Law, as Rood does....he called them “snakes” for a reason.
...” but if you find a error in one of Rood’s teachings, or some conflict with what he is teaching in relation to scripture, please present it and lets discuss that”.....
No, I will not for I’ll not give his false teachings, or those support those teachings ‘a platform’ to spread these false teachings on FR....which is a Christian Website who does not deny the Christ of Christianity.
We are encouraged to know the deceptive moves of the enemy....masking falsehood teachings with Christian Termonology and encouraging others to engage is Bait and Switch.
I belive I see your issue (or one of them). I can offer up plenty of scripture that contradicts your assumptions.
One is John 5:28-30 Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29 and come outthose who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned. 30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me."
There are many, many more scriptures that speak of not only accepting Yeshua as the son of the Almighty, but also speak of doing good afterwards.
One of the most convincing is final judgment of those not in Messiah at the time the second coming. What do you think Yeshua is going to be judging?
Well I suppose our only recourse is to agree to disagree and for you and I to continue on our separate paths.
If people live their life by the gregorian calendar on that smart phone or the wall calendar, the counterfeiting of God’s timekeeping has been successful...
How amazing it is not to live by man’s timekeeping but to live life by God’s calendar found in Creation and in Scripture... puts this world system in it’s proper, evil place...
I do not disagree with the supposition that if we are at the End of the Age, then Islam fits the description of the end-time Beast very well.
Given the tenets of Sharia Law, that fits in perfectly.
What I said was we are being given a preview of how the Mark would operate via the politically-correct mobocracy of our culture and the institution of government health care by a tyrannical regime.
I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if dear leader wasn’t a part of the end-time Beast as well. Have you seen an image of his ring?
I’ve made my position very clear here that I will not engage conversation about Roods teachings nor give these a platform to mislead people from the Christ of Christianity.
I have also warned.... and in fact would encourage any who would be involved with his teachings to “Run” from this man........Should they want to understand why...there is more than enough solid evidence all over the net by well grounded Christian Leaders .... they can go there and see what the truth is about Rood and his teachings.
Michael Rood was and is a cult leader. Not sure why anyone would want to follow someone with as little integrity as him.
I see. Your enemies are those who do not subscribe to your particular understanding of doctrine and that is who you will spend your time and energy assaulting and declaring false and evil.
The culture has gone to hell, evil is being institutionalized and you would rather fire on Christians whom you disagree with on doctrinal understandings.
Tell me, has Rood denied the Divinity of Christ, His Resurrection, His Salvation through His blood for the remission of sins and the only path to Life being through Him? If so - then perhaps your accusation would have merit.
If not - you are sitting in judgement of whom God works with and whom He does not, over the minute matters of doctrinal understanding. Making you very much the Pharisee you are claiming Rood is attempting to create a cult following of.
Not about doctrine nor about fellow Christians...it’s about cults pushing their traps on a site that has clearly stated it supports the Christ of Christianity.
Rood is a cult leader...plain and simple.
And YES, Rood’s teachings will lead his followers to deny Christ’s deity.
You are free of course to investigate this in many places on line as well as debates his followers have engaged in.
How does one take that on their forehead or right hand?
Scripture is pretty specific about where the mark is to be on the body.
That puts it beyond the allegorical into the literal interpretation department.
Yet you saw fit to jump onto a thread ABOUT Rood's explanation and understanding of the end-time Beast. Not exactly the fruits of someone who would seek to avoid engaging in conversation about Rood's understandings.
nor give these a platform to mislead people from the Christ of Christianity.
And who on FR gave you this authority to decide what denominations and understandings in Christianity are permitted to be discussed here?
I probably have much to agree with you on in terms of our personal views of Rood's teachings. That is not the issue.
I think that given the time in which we now live, we should worry more about Secularism, Hedonism and Islam infecting the church and it's teachings, the poisoning of our kids than vociferous ranting against another Christian's doctrinal understandings in terms of how they prefer to worship and look at scripture.
He fully admits that he used to be a part of a manmade religious cult:
Not that it matters as much as what someone has to say, but I'd rather listen to someone who isn't afraid to admit their errors, seek the truth and change their ways, than someone who won't and continues with their false doctrine.
Trying to apply scripture to some perceive defect in Rood (Like all of us, I quite sure he has many defects) that you find personally abhorrent, isn't productive in the least.
caww just did. Did you not read the comments about Rood claiming that we need to live under the Law?
.....”Well I suppose our only recourse is to agree to disagree and for you and I to continue on our separate paths”....
Which is exactly how it has been in the past when you’ve promoted this false teachers links and teachings and attempted to engage Christians in conversation. I believe it’s deception and misleads people into his cult who may not have a strong familiarity in God’s word...and that is how cults work.
Bait and switch is not a new game in town.....I will not give his teachings a platform but to call him and what his teachings are... a cult.
I'm afraid you're on pretty thin ice with that comment, as it places you fully into the "false witness" category.
I explained my error in not fully reading caww’s comment upstream, and replied accordingly.
Be my guest, notice I didn’t post this in the “Religious” category for the very reason that whatever issues one might have may be debated with vigor. The truth and pursuit thereof is what’s important. Let all of those with eyes and ears decide for themselves.
Again.... ‘Rood’ titled his book and promoted it as another means of deception.....most cult leaders can and do expose themselves as a matter of ‘reinventing’ themselves and their teachings in order to continue a following, especially when they’ve been “exposed” by the ‘real truth’ rather than a twisted truth that appeals to those who want to continue with them...... They do so because it works.
Doing an internet search showed up some stuff about Rood.
He was affiliated with The Way International.
He demands adherence to the Torah and observing the festivals and Sabbath, and has made several false prophecies. The last thing alone is enough to discredit him.
Scripture makes the allegory that Right Hand is an allegory is Doing or Action - and ‘forehead’ is a way of thinking:
“You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes”. - Deuteronomy 6:8
“Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads”. - Deuteronomy 6:8 NIV
“It shall be as a sign on your hand and as frontlets between your eyes, for by strength of hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt. - Exodus 13:16
“And it will be like a sign on your hand and a symbol on your forehead that the Lord brought us out of Egypt with his mighty hand. - NIV
Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.” - Deuteronomy 11:18
“Your right hand, Lord, was majestic in power. Your right hand, Lord, shattered the enemy.” - Exodus 15:6
“in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes.” - Psalm 26:10
“Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them!” - Psalm 74:11
In my understanding, the Mark in Revelation is a way of thinking and acting, and anyone who does not think or act in the manner the Beast demands, cannot earn a living - buy or sell.
This is true in both Sharia, and in MarxoFascism. Obedience to the State IS the only religion permitted, and everyone has to think and act for the glory of the state.
That statement is another deception cult leaders use.....they claim they do not force anyone, New Ager’s claim each must decide for themselves and mingle Christian terminology with their false teachings as they lure the innocent into their web..... as do most cult leaders and teachers. Rood does this as well.
Jesus settled the matter.....He IS the Truth.
He was and explains that affiliation fully and his subsequent exit after discovering what they were all about in the video I linked above; "Michael Rood Exposed".
And of course, in your mind, you're the one to tell us what that truth is... We're all to dumb and innocent to decide for ourselves, right?
As I've already said, if that's the path you're own, enjoy it without me.
I've read many of his teachings and he's just not the least reliable....just as with many cult leaders...their significance goes to their head and they in no time do whatever is necessary to retain their following....and generally followers of cults are eager for any excuse or cover-up which will allow them to continue following their leader. So the leaders are quick to find the perfect cover.
Roods history is no secret...neither are his excuses....and his cover ups. That’s the thing about false teachers and cult leaders...they always have to reinvent themselves in order to maintain their following.
Sounds like you’re an expert at it. Why don’t you watch the video?
Well, in that part of the world, the left hand is what you clean yourself with. There is a reason that “right” is good, and left is bad.
Jesus truth sets people ‘free’ from the Law for He 'completely' fulfilled what man cannot nor never could..... not into' bondage' as cult leader Rood does with his false teachings.
BTW...most people who have fallen into cults and false teachings cannot really see they are being mislead and generally fall because they want “More” than what Christ reveals....others need a sense they're doing their part by observing the Law through strict teachings and compliance to whatever rituals etc. the cult leader has determined they need to follow.
Eventually the follower will believe his cult leader is the 'only one' with the real truth and all others are vastly wrong.
Christianity IS the central figure of Jesus Christ....anything which leads people away from the centrality of Christ is bogus. Rood and his teachings are bogus.
Does that mean I should stop listening and reading the works of other Bible scholars and religious authorities and only listen to Rood?
I mean, you're obviously the expert here and expect everyone to follow your guidance. Tell me, what should I do???
Um, so you take offense at a Lady giving a testimonial of her faith? ... There seems to be a whiff of hypocrisy in the air/thread.
Not at all, I just like making up my own mind about what to believe and what not to believe. I'm funny about having something shoved down my throat. I only have one Lord and don't appreciate anyone coming between him and I. If that's a whiff of hypocrisy to you, check your pants...
Curious if you spend as much time blasting proponents of abortion mills and homosexual marriage as you spend blasting other Christians in whom you doctrinally disagree?
My guess is no.
But I would love to be wrong on that.
We do not have time to tear other Christians apart (those who claim Christ as Lord and Savior) when we have a greater enemy imposing wickedness and evil BY LAW in our society.
This is one of the many reasons Christians lost our culture to wickedness.
Seems to me Christians do not have the guts to attack purveyors of wickedness, but have plenty of gumption to war on those in the Faith whom they despise because they are not cookie-cutter Christians and do not agree with them in doctrine.
For them it seems, real evil and wickedness is limited to someone who has a different understanding of doctrine when it comes to serving Jesus Christ.
Wrong application in the biblical context. Psalm 26:10 tells us that bad things, evil things are also done with the Right Hand.
Right hand is the symbol of strength and action in scripture. It's what one does based on his will and devotion. Many times in scripture the Right Hand is used to describe what the forehead thinks or wills to do.
In the context you suggest - the scripture that tells us that our righteousness is as filthy rags before The Father, would also be served as what the 'left hand' does in terms of cleaning oneself.
