Rob MacDormand

Readers like Rob MacDormand’s articles because they express a great love of the Lord and are written in such a way as to be easily understood. Perhaps he gained a great insight from his mother who for years was a contributing writer to The Prophetic Expositor, the former magazine of British-Israel-World Federation. He writes a great deal about blessings and curses, how both have affected our Israel nations, and he emphasizes the great need to proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom whenever the opportunity arises. He does so in his personal ministry.

Rob is a graduate of the University of Alberta, was engaged in the oil industry for many years and now is involved in city planning. He is a third generation believer in the Israel message and has a great interest in what is going to happen spiritually to our brethren as the end of the age draws closer.

The Church of Jesus Christ is the temple of God in our world today. The foundation of this temple is described in the Bible, “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:19-22. I believe the reference to prophets is the prophets of the Old Testament. We are not built upon the writings of the prophets, but upon the prophets themselves. This means that they are part of the temple of God. Therefore the Church was in existence in the Old Testament. However, it was not called the Church. It was the body of faithful ones, the true worshippers of the Old Testament. God said to Elijah, “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.” I Kings 19:18. These were the faithful ones of Elijah’s generation, but there have been faithful ones in every generation since Adam. They are not all Israelites. The prophet Job was more righteous than most Israelites, but he was an Uzite, probably of the family of Uz (grandson of Shem), but not from Abraham. One person who sat with Job and spoke to him was Elihu, a Buzite, descended from Abraham’s brother Nahor. Therefore, there were people who worshipped God that were not Israelites.


Down through the ages there has been a misconception in the churches. It is the idea that the Church of Christ has replaced Israel as the inheritor of the promises made to God's people. It is the idea that Israel is no longer the bride of Christ and that He has replaced Israel with the Church as his future wife. There is nothing scriptural about these beliefs. The Bible does not contradict itself. If the prophecies in the Old Testament are about the future glory of Israel, then we cannot arbitrarily apply them to the Church. The Church may share in those promises, but the Church has no right to claim them exclusively for itself.


In both the book of Hosea and the book of Revelation it was prophesied that Israel would go into the wilderness. (Hosea 2:14 and Revelation 12:6) There are different views on this. In the Israel truth movement, however you look at it, it seems obvious that the prophecy is about our Anglo-Saxon people.

One theory is that the lost tribes of Israel went into the wilderness when they left the Middle East, crossed the Caucasus Mountains, and entered Europe. Another theory is that lands such as North America and Australia were wilderness areas that fulfilled the prophecy. The late Howard Rand believed the 1260 days in Revelation 12:6, which we believe are prophetic of years, stretched from Israel’s exodus from the Middle East to the Reformation. Israel may have come out of the Middle East in stages, as there were scattered barbarian tribes of them, but I believe Mr. Rand was referring to the point at which all of the various tribes had left. He believed this was early in the fourth century. Spiritually, perhaps Israel came out of the wilderness at the Reformation, but today we see that our people have again entered a barren, dry spiritual existence, and we need another Reformation.


There is very little love for the Anglo-Saxon people these days. Everything you hear about them is criticism. If they are indeed the lost tribes of Israel, there should be a different attitude toward them, as it says in the Bible. God loves Israel and those who don’t do not have the heart of God. I repeat, this rule applies to all people of the world. If they do not love the Anglo-Saxon people, they do not have the heart of God.

When I use the term Anglo-Saxon, I do not mean only people descended from the Angles or the Saxons. There were the Celtic people and various tribes of Europe who were descended from the lost tribes of Israel. For simplicity, I will refer to all of them as Anglo-Saxons. The beliefs about the Anglo-Saxons put forward in our generation are not very complimentary.
