Rob MacDormand

Rob MacDormandReaders 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.

Pray For Jerusalem?

There is frequent talk in evangelical circles about the need to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. This idea is taken from Psalm 122. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” Psalm 122:6. Christians are told by evangelical preachers that if they love and support and pray for the modern state of Israel they will be greatly blessed. I agree with praying for the peace of Jerusalem. The problem is that most people are praying for the wrong Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem in Psalm 122 has this characteristic: “For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.” Psalm 122:5. Is there a Jerusalem that satisfies this requirement? Certainly the city in the Middle East does not have those thrones, but there is another Jerusalem. “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2. Also, the apostle Paul wrote, “But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” Galatians 4:26. Paul also wrote about the existing city in the Middle East, which is the old Jerusalem: “For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.” Galatians 4:25. The old Jerusalem is in bondage; the new Jerusalem is free. Paul then says. “So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.” Galatians 4:31. The children of the old Jerusalem are in bondage because they do not believe in Jesus Christ. Jesus said of them, “Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?” John 5:45-47.

The Trinity

A recent letter to the editor referred to I John 4:12: “No man hath seen God at any time.” The questioner then mentioned John 14:9: “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?” The question is: “Since Jesus was God, how could the apostle John say that no man has seen God?”

God is a Trinity and none of us have a complete understanding of Him. He is Father, Son, and Spirit and these three are one. “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” I John 5:7. Jesus Christ is known as the Word of God. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1, and also it says, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14. Jesus has many other titles. It says of Him, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6. Therefore Jesus is called both Father and God.

Another Gospel

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Galatians and warned them of the dangers of another gospel. “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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 1:6-8. Today there are other gospels being preached and many people are being deceived by them. Gospel means good news and there are many voices today that purport to preach good news, but they bring only deception.

The gospel of humanism is one example of a false gospel. This doctrine says that we are products of evolution and that we are constantly evolving into something higher. It is the worship of humanity as opposed to the worship of God. People are told to look into themselves and draw from an inner strength and become great. Eve had this desire in the garden when the devil tempted her to eat the fruit. He said, “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5. The true Gospel says that we shall be as gods, but only if we are under the controlling influence of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13.

Is War Coming?

This year saw the one hundredth anniversary of the start of the First World War and the seventieth anniversary of the D-Day invasion in the Second World War. As we remember these events we can ask, “Are we heading for another and greater war?” In the D-Day remembrance service, the Queen stated that we must strive for peace so that in the future we do not have to erect monuments to young people who gave their lives in service to their country. Our Anglo-Saxon people would agree with this statement but it is increasingly becoming apparent that peace will elude us. The world is in a crisis situation. There is the Russian expansion in the Ukraine, the rise of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) in the Middle East, and political unrest in many parts of the world including Libya, Sudan, the Gaza strip, and even the gradual loss of freedom in Hong Kong. Some African countries are in extreme turmoil trying to deal with the Ebola virus.
