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.

The Re-Gathering of Israel

Since the formation of the Jewish state of Israel in 1948, many Christian preachers have claimed that this is a fulfillment of prophecy, that God has re-gathered his chosen people as prophesied in the Bible. We in the Israel Truth movement do not think the Jewish state fits the prophecies, simply because it does not include Jesus Christ. In the prophecies of the Bible, the person of Jesus Christ is constantly mentioned as accompanying the re-gathering of Israel.

In the first book of the Bible it records how Jacob blessed the tribes of Israel. He said, “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” Genesis 49:10. Shiloh is another name for Jesus Christ. [Ed: Strong’s Concordance 7886 – an epithet of the Messiah] The name means one who brings security and peace. When Israel is re-gathered it will be unto Jesus Christ.

Why Are We Here?

Many people do not have a very good opinion of this world. They are not happy, and this includes many Christians. Christians may ask: Why are we here? Why are Christians left to continue life in this corrupt and sinful world? Why does God not take more Christians away from this life? I believe there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, evangelists will tell Christians they are here to spread the Gospel. By this they mean the Gospel of personal salvation, to get as many people saved as possible. This idea does not seem to be working, as most of our people in the Western world are rejecting Christianity and we seem to be sliding further into sin with every decade. Something is wrong. For some reason we are not seeing revival happening. Perhaps we need to preach the whole Gospel, meaning we should tell people about the coming of Christ’s Kingdom. “And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” Luke 1:33.

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.
