Bible-confirming archaeology, and proclaiming that the "Feasts of the LORD" are precise prophetic shadow pictures by which our Creator has revealed the Messiah, and His plan for the created universe. Through his multi-media seminars, ... dubbed "A Rood Awakening!", Michael has invited hundreds of thousands of people around the world to "Leave your western, Gentile mentality behind, and explore the Scriptures (from Genesis to Revelation) from a Hebrew, or Jewish, perspective", and return to the faith of the First Century followers of Messiah Y'shua (Jesus)."
He is an advocate of the use of the Hebrew Lunar and Agricultural Calendar. Michael Rood's teaching is aired on Sky Angel satellite television.
