Coronation of Emperor Ras Tafari

Article published in Kingston, Jamaica, the 8 of November of 1930 in the "Blackman" news paper.

> Last Sunday, a great ceremony took place at Addis Abbaba [Ababa], the capital of Abyssinia. It was the coronation of the new Emperor of Ethiopia - Ras Tafari. From reports and expectations, the scene was one of great splendour, and will long be remembered by those who were present.
> Several of the leading nations of Europe sent representatives to the coronation, thereby paying their respects to a rising Negro Nation that is destined to play a great part in the future history of the world.

> Abyssinia is the land of the blacks and we are glad to learn that even though Europeans have been trying to impress the Abyssinians that they are not belonging to the Negro Race, they have returned the retort that they are, and that they are proud to be so.

> Ras Tafari has travelled to Europe and America and is therefore no stranger to European hypocrisy and methods; he, therefore, must be regarded as a kind of a modern Emperor, and from what we understand and know of him, he intends to introduce modern methods and systems into his country. Already he has started to recruit from different sections of the world competent men in dIfferent branches of science to help to develop his country to the position that she should occupy among the other nations of the world.

> We do hope that Ras Tafari will live long to carry out his wonderful intentions. From what we have heard and what we do know, he is ready and willing to extend the hand of invitation to any Negro who desires to settle in his kingdom. We know of many who are gone to Abyssinia and who have given good report of the great possibilities there, which they are striving to take advantage of.

> The Psalmist prophesied that "Princes would come out of Egypt and Ethiopia would stretch forth her hands unto God" (Psalm 68:31). We have no doubt that the time is now come. Ethiopia is now really stretching forth her hands. This great kingdom of the East has been hidden for many centuries, but gradually she is rising to take a leading place in the world and it is for us of the Negro race to assist in every way to hold up the hand of Emperor Ras Tafari.

RasTafari Homeschooling and Online Webpages for Children

Blessed Love Dawtas!

Give thanks for life and another day of blessings! I promised a Sistren a list of webpages that are great for the youts while they are home whether being homeschooled or not. These sites have tons of learning activities that will allow them to spend time wisely and productively! They are all free except the first one.

Homeschooling is a part of RasTafari Livity because it has been proven that the enemy should not be allowed to raise and teach our youts on a daily basis - it is leading to the death of the young Black community through disease, gangs, drugs and mental degradation to name a few. Being anti-Babylon means that I and I are separated from them in as many ways as possible for InI. Ideally, and in the first creations of RasTafari autonomy namely Pinnacle and Bobo Hill, in everything RasTafari are to stand apart from Babylon - dress (we wear the royal robe or full covering and turban), food (we are supposed to be not just vegan but food producers),  settlement (we are to live in the hills or country not concrete jungle) and spirituality and learning (become self taught to learn the hidden truths).

 RASTAFARI are a SEPARATED PEOPLE. Dwelling away from society does not mean that InI neglect our children's education and just let them learn physical trade or planting (though such will allow them to provide for themselves and a family). It means that we take a very large interest in developing and nurturing their minds - teaching them academics as much as how to live in JAH's Iration. As parents InI have to be keen and livicated to their future as adults and leaders. It is not always possible for most of InI to truly separate in all of the ways I mentioned, not every I can live in the hills and plant the land, and many RasTafari have worthy talents and professions in urban dwelling which still are good works in their place.

So no matter what type of place you live, or what you do, homeschooling is the RasTa Mama's duty in any little way you can do it - teaching manners and the fruits of the Irit for example are homeschooling, teaching how to grow a flower or a vegetable is homeschooling, teaching your yout how to sew a skirt is homeschool, helping them write stories or reading a book together is homeschool.  We have to look at our children and see what they need, what they respond to, and nurture those desires and imaginations. Even if they sometimes act like they aren't interested in something, never give it up. It will happen at the right time, and over time you will get the rewards of your child's learning.

And in that line of thought...
I have really been considering starting a Rastafari Mother's Homeschooling blog of sorts where I can post information such as these websites, and also share my lesson plans, my teaching ideas by subject, and more importantly my Rastafari themed worksheets and other worksheets. I really want to support the RasTafari Homeschooling community worldwide, but this is an undertaking that I will need other Sistren to contribute on: lesson plans, activities, pictures and worksheets, how to manage homeschooling multiple children, what your techniques and tricks are, how you get resources, how you plan your curriculum and samples of such - everything!

InI have to be serious and get organized just as the White community is - Australia and America I can think of. they always have their stuff together and they can make income while doing something so important. it is time RasTafari homeschoolers come together and form some kind of organization that can be both online and local chapters here in the West and in the East. Something that InI can use to fund raise and lead to the building of our own RasTafari learning centres where many of InI live together so that our youts can have a homeschool co-op community.  I know that some Sistren already have access to such things where they live, please come forward and share what the I can!

Please message me if you are seriously interested in being a regular contributor to a Rastafari homeschooling blog - this is necessary my Sistren! InI need to support one another and make the RasTafari Wombman's presence known in the community!

On another note Look out for the Smocking Maxi Dress Tutorial that I will post here. It is already on YouTube.

RasTafari Blessings and Idance!

The Role and Duties of the RasTafari Mother

Greetings and Blessings to the Children of the Most High JAH RasTafarI


More and more I find myself wanting to reason on this topic because I too have trials in raising my princess to be firm Rastafari. She likes some outside influences that many Rastafari do not allow their children to be exposed to such as Disney or cable television - tell-lie-vision. I know that this is an area where I have fallen short as a parent, but at the end of the day it is up to me to ensure that those are not the only images she knows or plays with. It is still my job as a mother to ensure that she is exposed to her culture more than she is exposed to Babylon. It is important that my livity, moreover, be firm Rastafari because she will always grow up to see the ensample that I as her mother set in the home and community. My point is that as Rastafari mothers we have to not just be firm in our own trod, but ensure that we provide the right principles for InI youts to grow and live by (I didnt really get around to saying this exactly but I tried to get it all out before my son cut me off from reasoning. there is much more that I would have said and might still add to the videos).

we cannot just expect that one day when they are older our children will know everything. they may not have the interest to learn on their own by that time so it is necessary for the RasTa mother to ensure that she homeschools her youts and exposes them to books and film. expose them to the things that the school system keeps hidden if they go to school. set a high standard for your youts and follow it yourself, you too have to be the first teacher they have in life! you as a RasTa Mother has to walk in the path of Empress Menen Who always supported the education and creative development of the youth.

I know that things are hard, sometimes there is no money to get what you need or no time to commit as you should. but at least just one day of the week find an hour or two to culture your children. that is better than nothing! If we leave them to Babylon they will not be fed the right Word Sound Power! They will become corrupted by the pleasures and temptations out there if they are not armed with wisdom.

New Irusalem is for them to inherit, with JAH as the Standard Bearer Ini RasTafariMothers must lay its foundation!










Selah Imega I RasTafari!

New Mum Baby Talk for the Second Time Around

TenaYisTilign!

I just give thanks every uprising for life, health, security and the provisions of JAH everyday in my life! Every day I wake up I am just joyful for the life of my household and our ability to hold firm and have what we need no matter how the times running. JAH is good to His people, those who take the Holy Word and Way seriously, who have love for the world and humanity, who bind the Truth and Right to their bosom - RasTafarI Livity! So keep your positive mind on always! rise with JAH sun and feel the blessings on your skin, watch JAH moon and give thanks for another day of life, love and learning.

I just wanted to share a little bit of what I have had to relearn the second time around to those Sistren who are having their first baby. I talked with one or two SIstren who were expecting their first around the same time that I was, and so in sharing with them I share with you.

I must say that being a mum the second time around, five years later showed me how much I forgot about it - certain little dos and donts Ive had to relearn, but I am also giving myself the chance to raise this baby with more natural products than the first and I am thankful to get a do-over in some ways even though this pregnancy was harder than the first, and my son is more of crier than his sister.

Having a newborn is rough - I would estimate the first two weeks after delivery to be the hardest of all! by one month, you should be into a routine and have your energy back, and be more healed up however. Through it all - the pregnancy, the labour and the after-care - remember it is all for a time, there is an end to the problem or the pain and you will have relief.


First of all, let's go back a little to the labour:
Make sure you are comfortable with the place you have chosen to deliver, that you have a doctor or midwife to represent you there, and that you carry everything you will need for yourself and baby according to what your facility and doctor state. It really lets you feel prepared and ready to focus on delivery when you have your birthing set and are comfortable with how things will be done.
WHen it is time to push - as you lay there pushing, when you feel like you have to BM or stool, that is actually where you need to direct all of your pushing energy. Push like you are going to the bathroom and that baby will be out in no time lol. and remember to BREATHE no matter what or how bad it feels! just breathe through everything. I took no drugs and that's how I made it through!
After labour make sure and get a lot of rest - sleep when baby sleeps if you have help. Sit in your salve water or sitz bath at least the first week twice a day to ensure you get no infections. be gentle with yourself. dont eat a lot of parsley and those herbs that cause bloodflow to increase. I had bleeding for a month.

But onto the newborn stuff.

First - I recommend that you  dont rush to put baby in the rub right away - especially before the little navel stump comes off (nothing will happen if you do bathe baby though, just dry it well and be careful not to hurt it. I wiped it with a cotton swab with alcohol for eight days when it dropped off, and also after to clean the dead skin, but you can also use water alone ). Newborns really are good with a wipe and dry off daily rather than being put into the tub. But it's your choice either way. When they make very messy poops it is best to clean them up with water though!

Second- Make a really big stash of oil that you will use for a variety of things! in that oil you are combining coconut oil the most, some olive oil, almond or sweet almond oil, rosemary oil and vitamin e oil. Make sure your baby is not allergic to nuts!  
This oil you can use as hair and body lotion - and if your baby gets cradle cap or baby dandruff, then soak their scalp in that oil or plain coconut oil after washing the hair once a day. THis oil will also help with the diaper area - first of all the diaper area chaffs, and all the creases in the pelvis where the diapers rub need to be oiled at every diaper change - at least this is what I have learned this time around in combatting the rash. you also need to oil baby's bottom where the rash occurs. with all the wiping and changing we do on their bottoms, and if it is not dried properly the skin becomes dry and vulnerable to rash. Also try different brands to rule out allergic reaction - my son cannot wear huggies it gives him a red rash! during diaper change I rub the oil everywhere and then I put the white zinc oxide, lanolin baby bottom ointment from the drugstore. but if baby gets a rash, the only way to properly treat it is to leave off the diaper while they sleep. During the day I put my son on his tummy and leave his butt exposed with the diaper underneath to catch his urine. No amount of diaper cream is going to fix a rash that is already there, and remember it hurts baby when he or she pees or poops so air out the area a few nap times for a few days, just pad with towels and the diaper mat from your baby bag if you have one. After that clears it up, always make sure you dry the area well with toilet paper or a towel or washcloth before applying oil n cream. use cotton balls dipped in water to also clean the area as wipes can burn diaper rashes.
Use the oil to also lubricate all the skin folds in baby's legs and arms as they will chaff also.
if there are cuts on the bottom apply vitamin e capsule oil directly when airing out the bottom.

Third - to help baby get rid of excess gas especially if baby suffers from gripe or colic, you can try putting baby in different positions and see which work. All of these positions work for my son in eliminating gas.
Prop up yourself and pull your knees up. put baby on your lap to face you. sitting like this will let baby use gravity to get that air out, it's like sittin on the toilet.
lie back but with yourself propped up a little and let baby lie on top of you on your tummy. let baby push up against you, move its feet and bottom up and down and the air will come out.
Burp baby a lot - in between and after feedings. Burping - put baby on shoulder, and combine patting rubbing. you can rub up and down, clockwise or anticlockwise and pat after - note which combination works for baby. I do all three but up-down quickly for a while and then pat for a while, really works.
Let baby lay flat on their back and the air will pass, to help them along move their legs back and forth for them and also up and down.
let baby sleep on your chest, and hold baby as long as you need to, to soothe him or her. crying is the only way they know how to express their pain! remember that being sympathetic will get you through the endless crying and thrashing.

Fourth - To clean nails try using an emery board and filing nails rather than trying to clip the nails. instead of clipping try the nail scissors. i dont like clipping those little nails at all!

Fifth - if your baby has a hernia, don't worry. it looks awful but once it is not red, hot, hard and cant go back into the navel, and once baby isnt crying and vomiting or has fever, then nothing is wrong. try icing the navel area if the hernia is red and warm. but if baby has these symptoms  of vomitting and the icing doesnt work to make it go back in, take him to hospital immediately.



Sixth - When nursing, if you have a strong milk flow, and which flows very hard when baby starts to nurse, baby will have issues latching on and staying on. you need to express some milk off first if your breasts are really full, and then feed. if you find baby's stools are more green than orange, try expressing your milk off for a few minutes before nursing. Baby needs more of the hind milk than the let-down milk which is more watery and causes fussiness and green stools. If you have engorgement, don't be too rough in massaging your breasts - you could hurt your milk ducts! dont wear anythin that is too tight or it will make your breasts hurt even more. if your bras wont fit then wear a tight vest and stick your pads in there - works for me! i use a size small vest instead of a medium. if you have pain, ice your breasts. to stimulate milk use a warm compress, but dont use heat if u are not expressing unless u follow it with cold compress. Nurse for ten minutes on the breast and then burp and put on second breast if baby needs it. after ten minutes the breast is empty and baby will start to gulp air. I had to read up and speak to the doctor about the info in this particular point as i had a rough time with these issues. for a time there I thought I wasnt going to heal but after two weeks my engorgement was gone. Do google this topic so you are well informed on what to expect with breastfeeding and engorgement.

Seventh - Dont let it all get to you, accept that it is what it is - you WILL change many diapers back to back. Dont even bother with it dont think "but i just changed you" because it is a waste of time. Dont be phased by the amount of puke and diapers you will have to put up with! Babies will have you smelly and sticky and just feeling run down! Dont let the crying get to you! In Trinidad people have been killing crying babies - don't fall into that trap! Babies cry for a long time sometimes, you just have to learn your child's cries and make sure you check them over and access every possible problem until they calm down. Sometimes just speaking a little loudly to my son over his crying gets his attention and he calms down long enough to catch his breath. I then talk to him in his ear quietly and tell him what he should do to calm down (he likes to cry to sleep - some babies are just like that!) sometimes it works. Sometimes when he cries too much I just rest him down on the bed for a few minutes  - he might stop, go to sleep on his own or cry harder, but by that time I have had five minutes to regroup myself, this is usually in the late night morning hours when Im the only one up with him. I also try wiping off, or taking outside for cool air once it is before 7 pm. Every evening from 5 - 8pm he is fussy with gas like most little boys also. tummy to tummy sleeping works, and if baby is not sleeping well, take some time out to do nothing and let them get a good rest on your tummy or let dad do it, Im sure he will be willing!
the same goes for breastfeeding every hour to two hours, and getting up often from sleep at night to tend to the baby or check that he is okay (and you WILL be highly paranoid especially the first month or so until baby starts to gain more weight and breathe a little sounder) - though it is overwelming, it's all a part of being a new mom and having a newborn, so keep your cool and have something that calms and soothes you. have a zen-place to go to when it gets rough. for me I say a mantra or affirmation a few times and feel positive that it is true and will manifest, also it's definitely taking a small burn, or reading scripture, giving Ises or just looking outside at the trees for a while in deep thought about Rastafari and JAH, taking a shower or eating something or napping. all these help me to refresh myself. I also recommend some kind of regular vitamin c as this also helps with energy and feeling more boosted.

Eighth - continue to take vitamins or eat lots of raw food daily, or you will lose your hair, nails and teeth and strong bones!!!

 Ninth - If you are a second time mom, you are a new mom too because you have never had two to take care of at once. It is going to be difficult and you will find you never have much time for yourself until late at night when you are too tired to care. But you just have to decide from early that you will do whatever you must to balance and handle both children every day. establish rules and routines to help you out. be more mindful of them and what they are doing to avoid accidents happening. get enough rest so that you will have energy to deal with them and wont be cranky. Try to keep your first child in the picture, let them embrace the new baby's arrival as well. Just always pay attention to what your children are showing you in their natural way, and try to meet their needs at the different levels, and find a way to merge them. It is all within you!

Tenth - Give Ises or pray, every day. Thank JAH continuously for your child and their safe journey into this life. be confident that you will deliver and raise your baby with strength and health. you can do it. thousands of women do it, millions even, so can you. everything is on the internet for you to google and read up upon, advice from mothers is there. you are not alone in this. Just pray on everything and be confident that JAH will deliver, guide, protect and nourish. JAH will secure your family and give you living waters to care for your creation.


These are just some offerings I have been keeping in my heart, nothing new to the world of child-raising but I felt it necessary to share with the Dawtas as I now re-learn my own strengths and weaknesses in being a mother the secondtime around. This is what being a  Goddess is all about, creation and tending of the seed! It is challenging, but it is rewarding and it is most of all the most important thing to me on earth! As RasTafari Dawtas I and I have to believe that the Queen Omega Goddess Energy is real, and is there waiting for I n I to tap into Her. The Wisdom of the Goddess Mother, Wife and Daughter is everliving and everpresent in the world, you just have to tap into your internal knowledge. listen to your body, see how it is in tune with your children, and nurture that connection daily with knowledge, good food, rest, exercise, acts of love and positive word sound and vibrations.

Totally Raw Plantain Dressing for Salad Recipe

Blessed Love all loved ones in Fari!

Today's post is a recipe of one of my Sistren Kindele of TuffLikeIron clothing, who is also a raw vegan and activist. She taught another Sistren - Sis Quilin of The Fire is Lit Bookstore (you can find her store on etsy!) this recipe and she in turn recommeneded it to me - and I am so glad I tried it with this aging plantain I had in the kitchen.
FYI - plantain is in the family of banana - it is actually meant to be eaten RAW! and because the thought of it seems too tangy and like it would twist up your mouth I was reluctant to try it. But one thing to remember is that plantains are ultimately VERY SWEET! so there is no fear in trying it raw in this particular recipe because it is quite sweet with a lovely array or seasonings to spice it up.
Now I decided the added ingredients in this recipe here my own, and you can too. but this recipe here is pretty tasty!

RAW PLANTAIN DRESSING



1 ripe plantain (skin should be black)
half an onion
1 pimento
2 strings chive
ginger powder or a piece of ginger
dash Braggs liquid amino (soy sauce) 
(sea salt if you wish)
1 tsp olive oil (you could try another like sesame or coconut to see how the flavours mesh)






                   
Combine the above ingredients in the blender

Pause and shake to get it going, you don't need to add anything else.

It will be smooth and whipped and light!

          

Make your salad and spread the dressing sauce on top, makes enough for two people. I had mine with one large potato boiled, but baking is always better. try it with a sweet potato instead and you will be in heaven. I usually use a ground provision with my salad for the meal to be heavier, but a bigger salad will also work!





 This is the best raw salad I have had yet, try it and let I know how it goes!

Bless!

How to Sew an Overalls Dress

Greetings and Blessed Love,

I was to post this tutorial so long ago while I was pregnant but I kept sticking with putting it together. And I should have because I didnt do my best job with editting down the footage given that I am juggling everything I do with taking care of my two month old - he is certainly growing! has gotten very fat and sweet, and has just started cooing and looking at things. and of course homeschool has started back with his big sister. coupled with Ila Designs and running the home, Ive got my hands full like many other RasTa Mamas.
 but I find the tutorial is still easy to follow - perfect as a summer dress or a beach overall dress, or as a maternity and breastfeeding dress.

How to Sew a Basic Maxi Skirt with Knit stretch fabric

Greetings and Blessed RasTafari Love to all!


I know I havent been around for a while, but having a newborn is so time-consuming that I really don't get much time to sit at the computer, or to make new tutorials... But I am trying to get back into the groove, as I am being creative again when I can  these days, after not making items for a while during my pregnancy. I am also working on some written material on His Majesty and the duty and roles of a king as determined in the Ible. I also want to work on some video reasonings. so things are going on behind the scenes even if it may take me longer than before to get my products online.

I really wanted to make a maxi skirt to take some pictures or do a mini photoshoot for some upcoming designs. so this beautiful camo-like fabric is what I decided to use. This is a very very basic tutorial, nothing new to the blog - but since it is knit I decided to do another tutorial on the basic A-line maxi.











Keep on trodding the path of the Virtuous Dawta!

The Ible, Emperor Haile Sellassie I and RasTafari

Greetings and Blessed Love,

I know it has been a long time since I posted, and I do apologize but life has been keeping me busy as I am soon to have my second child, and just been trying to balance home and business. Still the Sistren have been connecting on RasTa Wife Line's facebook group, so if you haven't forwarded there, please do! It is for Dawtas only!
In honour of the King's Earthstrong I have been working on an essay that speaks on HIM and our relationship to HIM as Rastafari, using the Ible. I post it now before July 23rd because I felt the vibes to do so.
I also am working on making my book RasTafari's Virtuous Daughter available for sale as well. I feel the Irit pushing I to deliver the works I have been creating for the last five or so years, especially because Sistren in the FB group have  questions and are seeking to find their place in RasTafari. I remember when I needed that guidance and want to be able to help provide some measure of overstanding or simply inspiration. So many works I have written, many of them have been posted here only in part, but hopefully I can present them all for the fullness and benefit of the I Sistren.
So in light of that, I offer this work and do hope it will be a great read in Selabration of the Almighty Kristos King Qedamawi Haile Sellassie....I love my JAH!




 The Ible, Emperor Haile Sellassie I and RasTafari



 Core Reasons for Sighting Emperor Haile Sellassie I as the Messianic King

It is important to overstand that ultimately RasTafari came to proclaim His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Sellassie the First as the Messianic Lion King due to the religious, inter-racial and political atmospheres in Jamaica at the time. The 1900s was indeed a century when a collective Ethiopian Identity arose out of the Diaspora, taking deep roots that would lead to the formation of many movements for Afrikan empowerment and liberation. The yearning for the Black Race to have the power to defend itself against Europe and to govern itself as a race was at an anxious peak in America, Britain and the Caribbean. The Diaspora was ready to take a stand and be redeemed from “Hell on Earth,” to fight for an Afrikan or Ethiopian New Jerusalem of their own making. It was time to fight back, end neocolonial slavery and reclaim their Homeland. RasTafari as a pan-African Movement fulfilled many of the spiritual needs and hopes Blacks had at the time, providing a God and King to lead Afrikan Isra’el to redemption.
The first sense of Emperor Haile Sellassie’s Ivine Kingship or rule over Afrika stems from the fact that He was the Sovereign Leader of the only Afrikan Nation to remain free from European colonization. Ethiopia carries the oldest, longest reign of kings and queens in the world – older than the contemporary European monarchies and countries of the Emperor’s time. Because of this, Afrikans of the Diaspora proclaimed Emperor Haile Sellassie the First to be the True Leader of the entire Negro World at home and abroad. By the ancient supremacy and rights of His Throne the King of Kings of Ethiopia was capable of sitting in world government on behalf of Ethiopians; and speaking on the issues affecting all of Afrika’s children who had been oppressed for far too long.
RasTafari as a Movement started because it was seen that this Ethiopian King of Kings was the Messiah prophesied to come to the aid of the Exiled Ones, the sons and daughters of slaves suffering and fighting in the Western territories of Babylon. It was Marcus Garvey who entreated the Negro race to “look to Africa” for a king to arise and be crowned, wielding the power to deliver the Diaspora from European oppression. For those who became RasTafari, deliverance was truly near with the arrival of Haile Sellassie the First on the world forum. The crowning of His Imperial Majesty in 1930 as King of Kings and Lord of Lords Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah not only summoned some Garveyites to proclaim Marcus Garvey a prophet; but gave their vision of returning to Afrika with the power of a legitimate leader a whole new meaning and possibility. The Ethiopia that the Honourable Marcus Garvey had frequently referred and made claim to for the emancipation of the Black race, had opened up Her arms to show the Diaspora that She truly existed.

“His foundation is in the holy mountains.
The Lord loves the gates of Zion More than all the dwellings of Jacob.
 Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God! Selah
I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to those who know Me;
Behold, O Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia:
‘This one was born there.’
And of Zion it will be said, ‘This one and that one were born in her;
And the Most High Himself shall establish her.
The Lord will record,
When He registers the peoples:
‘This one was born there.’ Selah
(Psalm 87:1-6)

The second sense of the King’s Messianic Advent for the Black race is once again tied to His throne, but in the Biblical significance of such. The Ethiopian New Jerusalem was established by the Almighty JAH the King of Zion; and His Krist - through the Root of David - had come to loosen the seven seals (Revelation 5:5) and to fight the final battle for exiled Israel’s redemption and restoration back to their Father’s Land.
Ethiopia or Kush was at one point Israelite or Jewish before becoming a Christian nation. This happened when a Kushite Arabian Queen named Makeda made economic alliances and marriage with King Solomon, subsequently giving him a man-child to rule Ethiopia as a Jewish king. The Kebra Nagast states that Solomon saw the expansion of Jerusalem into Ethiopia, showing that the two were made one in his son Emperor Menelik I. As a result, a whole renewal of Ethiopia happened bringing the state under the Laws of Jahovah – thus making them a part of Isra’el. Jerusalem and Axum (and the rest of Makeda’s Ethiopia – Ophir, Saba/Yemen and so on) made an alliance that led to probably the first migration of Israelites from each tribe into the Nile Valley and surrounding Nubian regions, since their escape from Egypt centuries before. At this time, the sacred Ark of the Covenant - the seat of Jahovah in Jerusalem - was taken by a son of Levite High Priest Zadok as he was appointed High Priest of Ethiopia’s Jerusalem. Azariah carried the Ark into Axum to abide with the new Ethiopian King of Judah David II or Menelik I (Ezekiel 48:11). The anointing of Rehoboam to succeed King Solomon as King of Judah and Jerusalem was therefore without the true blessings and power of Jahovah because the Ark was secretly missing.
Because of the knowledge of the Hebrew legacy tied to the Ethiopian throne through the son of King David and Solomon – His Majesty being the 226th king to sit on the throne of Solomon in Ethiopia – the Hola Ible was discovered to be a likely source of Emperor Haile Sellassie’s credibility on the world forum as a monarch of Ivine proportions. In light of this, Marcus Garvey’s role in prophesying the Afrikan King’s coming was deemed a manifestation of John the Baptiser proclaiming the coming of the Messiah Yesus Kristos in Matthew Chapter 3.
With the throne of David behind HIM, it could not be denied that Emperor Haile Sellassie the First was the only Black Man of all the Freedom Fighters during His time Who could gain access and represent Afrika at the League of Nations (White World Government). He was a king “just as the White man was a king” proven by His 1930 coronation; and that was something that the Diaspora and the White World at the time had never seen before. Black leaders of the West were never men with this kind of power - they were not rich, or part of nobility like in the White World. The most amazing thing was that the Emperor, an Ethiopian, could trace His lineage back to the Ible – a book which (in the Diaspora) had always been “of the White man.” What’s more, the Emperor was the only leader devoted to an indigenous Ethiopian Christian Church with its own Bible, a Church not governed by White men. This was again, a Black or Negro phenomenon to the oppressed and colonized Afrikans of the Diaspora.
As a result, for RasTafari Emperor Haile Sellassie I’s Davidic and Ethiopian link to the White Man’s Christian religion meant that even Europe and her queen would have to submit to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God, Light of this World and Defender of the Faith. The Emperor’s heritage also showed that the Christian faith rightfully began with the Black Race because Ethiopia had a much older alliance with Isra’el than the Gentiles. It was seen that Black people were indeed the Biblical nations of power, and that Western Christianity (both Protestant and Catholic) could not continue to be used as a tool of oppression against them. It was not right for them to rule Afrikans who had their own spirituality centuries before Greece first made the voyage into Afrika and learned civilization. It appeared that a new Black Spirituality and Mission for Freedom had been born or recreated from Biblical days for the exiled Ethiopian. The White man would now be the one to be suffer under his own religious doctrines. His own god would be punishing him for changing what was truth and righteous by the same laws he used to abuse Afrika.
In the ghettos of Kingston Jamaica, it was proclaimed that the judgment upon the European Beasts of Babylon who had enslaved and ripped apart Ethiopia-Afrika, had finally come to the White World and its queen by the hand of the oppressed. The land of Ethiopia had been hidden from Europe’s imaginations until the coming of Emperor Menelik II and his most loyal successor Emperor Haile Sellassie I; when Ethiopia emerged on the world forum as a competitor for development. Even though the lost gem had been discovered again, She was not Europe’s for the taking. Ethiopia’s Kings emerged into world government to proclaim Her a country in Her own right; a kingdom ready to be modernized or improved with technology; but not a pie to be divided. The victories of the Emperors against the Italians in battle and the political and racial events surrounding such wars, Biblically align to the prophecies that David’s Zion or Jerusalem (the City where the Ark rests) would never truly belong to the Gentiles. JAH would not allow the Beasts to sit in His sacred seat because His Son, the Anointed King of Judah would be there defending in His Name. And with the defence of Ethiopia or Jerusalem by her King, the rest of Beta Isra’el would finally find its way back home, being guided by Zion’s shining rainbow circle throne and tabernacle.

“Behold! My Servant whom I uphold, My Elect One in whom My soul delights!
 I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.

He will not fail nor be discouraged, Till He has established justice in the earth;
And the coastlands shall wait for His law.”

(Isaiah 42:1, 4)

 


The Relationship between JAH, the Hebrew Tribes and their Righteous King

 The Hebrew legacy of kings and their relationship to Yahweh is in fact part of an ancient worldwide tradition found in Ethiopia, Persia, Kemet, China and Greece to name a few. The Hebrews were not really the only special lineage thought to dwell in the earth to rule as priests and kings of the Almighty God – the king being head of the country and the sacrificial rites of the priesthood. They were one among many Black tribes that attributed to their priestly leaders the personality and powers of God in flesh; an Ivine birth and purpose by bloodline. All priests and kings aimed to obtain a life everlasting in the heavenly kingdom of the gods by being of certain moralities. Though the names and places, rituals, laws and dynasties varied, the core ideology and theocratic rule essentially didn’t change. One can review the similarities between the Davidic Kingship to the Egyptian kings and queens who ruled as the Children of Ra, Ausar, Auset and Heru; as well as similarities between the priesthoods and sacred texts of Jews and Egyptians.
This relationship is not surprising given the fact that from very early on the Shemite lineage of Abraham - which spoke the same language as the Khamites – lived among, and became mixed with many tribes of Kush, Kanaan and Kemet through marriage to the daughters of the land many times over. Abraham, Ishmael and his sons, Moses, Jacob’s sons and descendants, and the various Kings of Judah and Isra’el married Afrikan princesses and priests’ daughters and others of good breeding. The Hebrew race was therefore notably rooted in Afrika from the beginning, long before the alliance between the Queen of the South Makeda and King Solomon. This strengthens the Rastafari Ideology of Emperor Haile Sellassie the First being and Afrikan King of Judah; and RasTafari and Afrikans of the West being the scattered, exiled Twelve Tribes of Isra’el.
In the prophecy JAH/Yahweh bestowed upon Abraham for his faith and obedience, the entire lot of his seed would be a nation of kings and priests. Later on, when Isra’el became the chosen Abrahamic nation to rule the Promised Land, the Tribe of Levi through the sons of Aaron, was raised up to be the hola priesthood that would govern the land on Yahweh’s behalf. Moses gave them a complete moral and ceremonial code by which to righteously rule the large population. The Levites as priests and prophets would be spread into every single tribe and never have their own plot of the Promised Land for themselves. They spread the places of worship and sacrifice but guarded the Ark of the Covenant. (See Deuteronomy 17:14-20, 21:5, 24:8; 1 Chronicles 15:2, 16:4; Ezekiel 40:46; Hebrews 7:5). The priesthood was the most important body in the kingdom therefore, because they were the Keepers of Wisdom. They could judge and prophesy JAH’s Will to the people. Isra’el would not have a king because their god Yahweh, was the King and Most High – the priesthood did His bidding and spoke His word to Isra’el. Yahweh or Jahovah was called the “Jealous God” and would therefore not stand for a man or another god to be more important than He. An Israelite was submissive to Yahweh alone, and paid all their sacrifices unto Him, not a fleshly ruler (as was common with other nations).
Yet, a few centuries later Isra’el asked for a king to rule alongside the priesthood. Though this was against the Covenant, Yahweh instructed Samuel – a Levite High Priest and Prophet – to anoint Saul of the Tribe of Benjamin. But Saul let his own pride and jealousy lead him astray from the Lord’s Word and Will – he didn’t always follow protocol, to wait on Jahovah’s instruction. The Lord revealed to Samuel that He had chosen Himself another: a righteous, humble shepherd boy to rule as king. The Tribe of Judah through the Son of Jesse named David, would unite and reign over the Twelve Tribes of Isra’el. David was JAH’s beloved, the wise boy who could lead His sheep righteously. He was expected to rule obediently, to do what was prophesied to him by the Levite prophets and priests.



“Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.”

“I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You. The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.”

(Psalm 2:6-8)


“I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to My servant David:  ‘Your seed I will establish forever, And build up your throne to all generations.’” Selah
My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
 Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David:
 His seed shall endure forever,  And his throne as the sun before Me;
 It shall be established forever like the moon, Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah.
(Psalm 89:3-4, 34-37)

 
“I took you [David] from the sheepfold, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people, over Israel.
And I have been with you wherever you have gone, and have cut off all your enemies from before you, and have made you a great name, like the name of the great men who are on the earth.
Moreover I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more; nor shall the sons of wickedness oppress them anymore…
When your days are fulfilled and you rest with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.
He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
 I will be his Father, and he shall be My son.
If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the blows of the sons of men.
But My mercy shall not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I removed from before you. And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you. Your throne shall be established forever.”
(2 Samuel 7: 8-10, 12-16)



 David’s authority took great root in the unification of the tribes because it appears that Isra’el desired to have a tangible mediator for their “God in the fire” beyond the priesthood, Ark and Shekinah (Hosea 13:9-10 and Exodus 20:18-20). The priesthood just wasn’t enough anymore because it had become corrupt and could not effectively defend their land which was constantly at war with other nations of the land. Isra’el would be better off if they had a Warrior, someone who could be Champion on their behalf, showing might in battle and operate with a keen heart. If JAH was to be most mighty and able to do all things for Isra’el, it was through His anointed Son or Iritually endowed Prophet, Priest and King that these powers would be known. Jahovah was basically asked to prove Himself by giving Isra’el victory over the nations and their idolatrous sins through a king. Therefore it came to be that officially, the entire personality and power of JAH had to be ideally represented and exulted by the Righteous King of Isra’el and his High Priest-Prophet who in the Hebrew case, were born of the lineage of David-Judah and Aaron-Zadok-Levi respectively.




“There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,
And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
His delight is in the fear of the Lord,
And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,
Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
But with righteousness He shall judge the poor,
And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins,
And faithfulness the belt of His waist”
(Isaiah 11:1-5)

“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

(Isaiah 9:6-7)



 

The Book of Wisdom is a Hebrew Apocryphal text attributed to King Solomon. In Chapter six Solomon wrote a word of advice to the kings of the earth, and of course the kings that would follow him to rule in Judah. He would have asserted his position as the Son of David and one of the most popular kingdoms of the time. According to him, the duty of a king was to represent the Almighty Creator and thereby uphold His law through wisdom. Wisdom would make any king great and powerful and he would become immortal in Her. Given that this Hebrew Book is included in the Ethiopian Ible, it is not hard to think that the Ethiopian Emperor Himself read these very words, honouring the king’s code as a Solomonic heir.

The Responsibility of Rulers

“So then, you kings, you rulers the world over, listen to what I say, and learn from it. You govern many lands and are proud that so many people are under your rule, but this authority has been given to you by the Lord Most High. He will examine what you have done and what you plan to do.
You rule on behalf of God and his kingdom, and if you do not govern justly, if you do not uphold the law, if you do not live according to God's will, you will suffer sudden and terrible punishment.
It is for you, mighty kings, that I write these words, so that you may know how to act wisely and avoid
mistakes. These are holy matters, and if you treat them in a holy manner, you yourselves will be considered holy. If you have learned this lesson, you will be able to defend yourselves at the Judgment. So then, make my teaching your treasure and joy, and you will be well instructed.
Wisdom begins when you sincerely want to learn. To desire Wisdom is to love her; to love her is to keep her laws; to keep her laws is to be certain of immortality; immortality will bring you close to God. This desire for Wisdom can prepare you to rule a kingdom. So then, you that rule the nations, if you value your thrones and symbols of authority, honor Wisdom so that you may rule forever.”
(Apocrypha, Book of Wisdom Chapter 6:1-5, 9-11, 17-21 TEV)

As exemplified by David and Solomon, it was through righteousness, wisdom and truth that any flesh knew and received from JAH; or became representative, Image, son or daughter of JAH. It was only through righteousness that a king could truly be named to judge and be successful in any endeavour or danger as the strong right hand or arm of JAH. He had to be committed to lawful marriages, fasts, sacrifices, ritual purification and wise governorship to be the Representative of JAH.
His righteousness in turn had to be passed onto his sons and shared with his wife to ensure the perpetuation of JAH’s reign in Isra’el. His wife (being the Queen-Mother/Gebirah or most trusted adviser of the future Davidic heir) had to be his first true servant and kindred, representing him in the best way possible by her own virtue. (Read Proverbs 31 which explains the due righteousness of kings and their wives.) That is why having foreign wives who were culturally different was something never recommended by the priests and prophets throughout the Old Testament (see Ezra 9:2, 10; Genesis 24:36-38; Nehemiah 10:30). An idolatrous wife would be the downfall of any Davidic King as such was against the Code of Wisdom by which Judah ruled in Isra’el. The Queen of Sheba or Makeda was the only Afrikan wife that Solomon took noted to leave her idols and worship the Living God. Solomon’s other sons followed their mothers in idolatry and brought the downfall of Jerusalem. It is through Queen Makeda’s Ethiopian kingdom that the Ivine Kingship and sovereignty of Zion stood the tests of war and idolatry.
The truth of Afrika, Ethiopia and the Black race as the genesis of Isra’el is made apparent when one truly takes into account the inheritance, family life, culture, goals and accomplishments of the Biblical Davidic kings (namely David and Solomon) and compares them to the heritage, life and times of Haile Sellassie I. For RasTafari, it is obvious and certain that His Imperial Majesty was the Son or even reincarnation of small yet mighty King David of Zion; partaking in the same prophetical anointing, struggle and glory as His ancestor.
It is also relevant to see that the Ethiopian Empress Menen Asfaw in Her Ivine anointing as the Queen and in sharing the same royal Solomonic blood and Tewahedo Faith, also embodied the desired hola personality of the Queen of Judah. She shared in the spiritual leadership, protection and improvement of Ethiopia’s Jerusalem by Her own wealth, faith and endeavours. Seated upon the ancient Ethiopian throne of Afrika, She answered the calls of her people and mobilized them towards a better life. She not only represents the lineages of outstanding Khamite Queens that ruled the land since the beginning of Man, but stands as the Ideal of change to the oppressed Afrikan woman. Her achievements in hola conduct, child-bearing, marriage, business and acts of charity and defencive warfare; paint a picture of the true nature and roles of the Black Wombman as a builder of society. Her place as the Emperor’s most wise and trusted adviser during Her lifetime as His wife, illustrates the Ivine partnership of Man and Woman, Ivine King and Queen in the Black fight for spiritual and political autonomy, freedom, justice and development. For Rastafari the Wisdom of JAH and the healing of the nation can be brought forth in no other way - every Alpha needs his Omega to bring all works for the City of JAH into fruition.
Empress Menen is made One with His Majesty in acknowledging the prophetical fulfilments of His lifetime as the Messianic Davidic King of Isra’el. It is in this Inited Image of JAH RasTafari that RasTafari Brethren and Sistren take this name or title, and establish the Natural Right Livity and repatriation mission for the oppressed children of Afrika’s Isra’el.



Emperor Haile Sellassie I’s Identity as the Manifested Davidic Kristos King
  


Within RasTafari, it is acknowledged that Qedamawi Haile Sellasie is the last true reigning Righteous King to govern the seat of the Almighty Creator in Afrika and King David’s Zion/Jerusalem. For many RasTafari, if the New Testament’s account of a man named Jesus or Yesus Kristos cannot be absolutely proven as fact, then I and I can look to the Ethiopian Emperor for the depiction of a real live Krist and Davidic King. Through King Selassie I Abba Janhoy, RasTafari experience in real life the true Afrikan teachings of Kristos resurrection as well as the true Afrikan origins of the Hola Scriptures. It is through HIM that the Ivine Nature, Word and Wisdom of JAH are known in flesh, and spread across the world by the collective consciousness of His people. It is by His righteous, wise, loving, just and moral character in addition to His royal Solomonic birth; that His Godlike power, land, duties, goals and struggles can all be accurately placed within ancient Scriptural contexts and beliefs.
In this time for RasTafari, JAH manifested not only as a Messianic Standard Bearer after the Order of Melchizedek (Prophet, Priest and King); but as a capable Kristos King Who brought on the fulfilment of Isaiah’s, Jeremiah’s, Daniel’s and John’s prophecies of Israelite redemption. A King who never glorified His own work and ability but Who trusted and exalted the Almighty Creator for giving HIM the power to rule and make political change (unlike Yesus who had no political authority in Judaea).
The Emperor’s personal afflictions and struggles in bringing Isra’el (Ethiopia) into a new order of rule under His Ivine authority, defending the land against the Gentiles, as well as His spiritual feeding of the struggling colonised masses; were altogether similar to the passions of the Israelite kings, prophets and even the rejected “sacrificial lamb” Yesus Kristos.
Gentle as the lamb and fierce as a roused lion, His conquering characteristics were indeed Messiah-like and complete with the double-edged sword. He invoked the Ivine Nature of the Biblical Krist being born of mystical signs and hola traditions, His supreme Wise Mind and His overstanding of the hearts of men. Such allowed the King to actively predict, thwart and paralyse evil to a great extent throughout His reign. Because of His two-sword nature as Lion and Lamb, like Yesus His Majesty was loved feared and resented by His people and European colonialists.

These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
 (Revelation 17:14)

 

Like Yesus, the Emperor was born under signs and stars of prophecy. The day of His birth brought the rainstorms after a period of drought in Ethiopia. A Muslim elder and select Orthodox priests who knew His family, all believed that this man-child of their beloved Ras Makonnen and Woyzero Yeshimebet Ali would be a special gift to the nation. Not only was this man-child a prince, a son of the Shewan Dynasty of Solomonic Kings; but it was prophesied that He would be a very great leader in Ethiopia and Afrika, a Star. As such, His birth and early life were highly protected by the Tewahedo Orthodox Church priesthood to ensure that He would survive and grow (unlike his mother’s previous eight children), and also be raised under the guidance of priests and royal nobility (relatives of the monarchy). It is noteworthy that throughout His rule, the Emperor was a great benefactor of the priesthood and devoted to the rites of faith in keeping with the priesthood’s influence on Him from birth. RasTafari believe that Revelation Chapter 12 speaks of the war of Satan the Dragon, against Lady Yeshimebet’s womb and her final victory in bringing forth a man-child to be caught up to Zion’s Throne.
Like Yesus, from a young age Tafari Makonnen’s goals to bring positive cultural change and reforming the Law in the modernization of Ethiopia were painfully rejected by Ethiopians or in a Biblical sense, by Isra’el (as with many prophets before Yesus).  For them His policies were too radical, and against tradition. The nobles or leaders (Pharisees) of the people preferred corrupted tradition to losing their rank no matter how inhibiting it was to the nation. After outsmarting those who wanted to seize the throne for many years all the while positively developing and improving the Ethiopian nation; the Emperor ultimately resigned quietly from His throne giving Ethiopia’s Isra’el what they wanted. He committed Himself and the last true Afrikan Monarchy as sacrifices for the sake of the nobility, middle class and university student body that wanted to follow other Afrikan countries in their capitalist ventures (which in the end were failures!). The Emperor was ideally betrayed by the very people He had helped establish themselves in a blossoming, modern workforce and economy. Like Yesus, He was a man of peace and progress, and distinctly refused to go to war with His own people even when they rose up in rebellion against Him. If they could not see His vision then He would not force them; the ground work had already been laid.
RasTafari sighting and gathering under the King of Kings as the (Second Advent) Black Krist or Davidic Messianic King, is a movement in line with the Nazirenes and Apostles who joined the Church during and after Yesus’ lifetime. It is through I and I – our consciousness, hearts and righteousness – that the King of Kings lives on and on, is appreciloved, and honoured in Earth as He reigns in Zion. It is upon His Ivine Ensample and Wisdom that New Jerusalem or the Kingdom of Heaven is built.


The Ivine Names and Titles of JAH upon HIM

Not only do RasTafari refer to His Majesty as JAH meaning Jehovah, but His personal names and titles also translate to the Ivine designations of a Kristos, King, God or Lord (mainly in the Davidic sense). Because of this simple truth, there is no question for RasTafari that Qedamawi Haile Sellassie is the physical representation of the Masculine Principles of the Almighty Creator, Elected Light-Bearer of JAH, the Son of JAH, King of Jerusalem and overall fulfilment of prophecy. The Emperor’s many names and titles bear witness of His Ivine Essence.

JAH: His Majesty arrived in Jamaica on a stormy, cloudy day, the heavens cleared when His place broke into the Jamaican airspace, and it was considered a fulfilment of Psalm 68:4 “Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.” The Ethiopian title JANHOY is an Amharic word that is also referenced in saying “JAH” as it means “Majesty,” “His Majesty” or “Your Majesty.” It is Biblical fact that Jehovah or JAH is called King or Majesty.

TAFARI: means “to be feared.” JAH is said to be “the one to be feared” in the Book of Psalms. As JAH is feared He is presented with praise and gifts, and in like manner RasTafari and other nations around the world treated His Majesty Ras Tafari Haile Sellassie I with the same reverence attributed to JAH in these verses:



For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. 
(1 Chronicles 16:25 and Psalm 96:4)

God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him (Psalm 89:7).
Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
Vow, and pay unto the Lord your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared (Psalm 76:7,11)



HAILE SELLASSIE: means “Might of the Trinity” and the Trinity is a title attributed to the Almighty God or Father, the Irit of JAH and the Ivine Son or Manifestation of God in flesh and Irit. In the most ancient origins of Irituality such as India, the Trinity represents Creator, Preserver and Destroyer. Ras Tafari was therefore given the triple power of the Hola Trinity to rule. Within the Old Testament the Trinity can be identified as prophet, priest and king; a triple crown of Ivine leadership of the righteous city.

Over His life the Emperor carried many Amharic titles of nobility which all point to His leadership in Ethiopia from birth:

RAS: is Amharic for Duke or Earl, a head of the people. Ras Tafari therefore can be translated as “Head to be feared,” which can also be further broken down to “Head Creator” given that the Creator is the Head to be feared.

DEJAZMATCH: “Keeper of the Door/Gate” Revelation 3:7 says “These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens.
NEGUS: means a provincial “King.”

NEGUSA NEGAST : means “King of Kings,” the supreme head over all other provincial kings. (Related to Revelation 19:16).

CONQUERING LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH: is the name of David’s Messianic Son who would restore Isra’el. A title of Israel’s Messianic King in Revelation 19:16.

Other titles such as Elect of God, Light of this World, Defender of the Faith, Soldier of the Cross and Root of David also point to the Messianic role that Emperor Haile Sellassie I carried in His lifetime. Such truly represent HIM as the monarch to bring social, economic and political change and stability to the land, creating a new Ethiopian Jerusalem forever.



The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah






And behold, One like the Son of Man,
Coming with the clouds of heaven!
He came to the Ancient of Days,
And they brought Him near before Him.
Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom,
That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away,
And His kingdom the one Which shall not be destroyed.

(Daniel 7: 13-14)

 

And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.
But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”

Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.

(Revelation 5:1, 5, 7)

 

His Majesty’s special coming at that particular time in world history, reflected the parts of Ivine prophecy that surround the Anointed Chosen son the Messianic Lion and Lamb. This king was sent to redeem the real Tribes of Isra’el from oppression and ignorance at the hand of the Beast. Being crowned King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of Judah; His Majesty is identified as the Judgment King, the Lion that would defend and the Lamb brought to slaughter for the sake of New Jerusalem. Only Emperor Haile Sellassie I in this time was the Root of David, and able to loosen the seals of judgment upon the Beasts seducing the world into wickedness. His mouth was the double-edged sword that fought against the injustice of humanity.
His Ivine prophetical purpose was set to redeem Ethiopia’s or Afrika’s Isra’el at a time when their oppressors in captivity or colonialism were all rising in power simultaneously, leading ultimately into a time of world war and racial violence. Europe attacked Ethiopia both politically and physically. Like King David Emperor Haile Sellassie the First was forced into battle with an enemy over Jahovah’s land and led Judah in confidence, wisdom and victory. The Almighty God and the Irits of kings before HIM led the Emperor as a personal banner of salvation and justice over the Gentiles.



The Lord also will roar from Zion,
And utter His voice from Jerusalem;
The heavens and earth will shake;
But the Lord will be a shelter for His people,
And the strength of the children of Israel.
“So you shall know that I am the Lord your God,
Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain.

Then Jerusalem shall be holy,
And no aliens shall ever pass through her again.”

But Judah shall abide forever,
And Jerusalem from generation to generation.

(Joel 3:16-17, 20)

 

Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse.

And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

(Revelation 19:11-16)






Not only did the sacred seat of David and Zion need to be protected from such Gentile powers, but the Conscience of the World needed to be tested and Oppressed Isra’el needed to be awakened. The Emperor had to leave His seat, leave Zion in exile, to enter Babylon and judge the agenda of its kings. They saw Him as one to be pitied, as His country was under siege by Italy, but the King knew Ethiopia was the start of a domino effect that would bring war for them all. May 5th 1936 to 1941 represented His time in battle against the Beast and a fulfilment of Psalm 110:



The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”
The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion.
Rule in the midst of Your enemies!
Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power;
In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning,
You have the dew of Your youth.
The Lord has sworn And will not relent,
“You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.”
The Lord is at Your right hand;
He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath.
He shall judge among the nations,
He shall fill the places with dead bodies,
He shall execute the heads of many countries.
He shall drink of the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He shall lift up the head.
(Psalm 110)





In 1936 Geneva Switzerland, after leaving Ethiopia in order to preserve Her throne as the ticket to freedom, the Emperor openly questioned Europe’s true loyalty to their own codes of world governance and law (League of Nations). The Law needed to be weighed on the Conscience of the World through its own kings who in the quest for greater empires were destroying security, peace and the moral fibre of mankind. The Word went forth from Zion’s King like a sharp double-edged sword and brought condemnation upon the wickedness of the Four Beasts of Babylon – especially the eagle, being Italy. The Second World War started three years later in 1939 because the kings of the earth had not heeded to the King of Zion in the Battle of Armageddon.

In that day the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of the Lord before them.

 (Zechariah 12:8)

 

You saw the angry lion come roaring out of the forest, and you heard it speak to the eagle and rebuke it for all the evil that it had done and for all that it had said.
The lion represents the Messiah, whom God Most High has held back until the end. He will be a descendant of David and will come and speak to the rulers.
He will rebuke them for their wickedness, their sinfulness, and their contempt for God’s ways. While they are still living, he will bring them to judgment, condemn them for their sin, and destroy them.
But he will have mercy on the rest of my people, those who are left in my land: he will set them free and make them happy until the end comes, the Judgment Day…
(Apocrypha, Book of 2 Esdras12:31-34 TEV)

Many years later after the war, Europe admitted the truth of the King’s warning and welcomed HIM into their kingdoms in admiration and peace. In every country the Emperor was given a special medallion of honour and even honorary degrees. Relics of Ethiopia were returned to their rightful owner to show that the time of attack had passed.
(See also Revelation 13:6-7 and 17:12-18; Daniel 7:5; Isaiah 42:13; Psalm 77:15) 






There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

His enemies I will clothe with shame, but upon Himself His crown shall flourish.”

(Psalm 132:18)

 

Then the Mighty One of Israel shall glorify Shem.

For the Lord God shall appear on earth, and Himself save men,

Then shall all the spirits of deceit be given to be trodden under foot, and men shall rule over wicked spirits.

Then shall I arise in Joy and will bless the Most High because of his marvellous works,

because God hath taken a body and eaten with men and saved men.

And now, my children, and Judah, and obey Levi and Judah, and be not lifted up against these two tribes,

for from them shall arise unto you the salvation of God.

For the Lord shall raise up from Levi as it were a High Priest, and from Judah as it were a King, God and man,

He shall save all the Gentiles and the race of Israel.

(The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs, Reuben Chapter 3:6-11)




 The Coming of Shiloh and Restoration of New Jerusalem




And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
[Israelites in/from Afrika]
And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.
And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod.
And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
(Isaiah 11:10-16)



Even though the expectations of the Diaspora from the Ethiopian Throne started way back in the 1930s, it wasn’t until a few decades later that proper dialogue between scattered Ephraim and Judah was possible. At the time that Marcus Garvey and other Black Power Representatives were looking to Ethiopia, She was caught trying to defend her independence against the kings of the earth. Ethiopia’s Emperor was occupied with trying to keep His Empire intact while facing uprisings from within and invasions by Europe. It was a time of vexation and envy between Ephraim and Judah because the Black West wanted to be seen and heard by the Motherland which was dealing with her own conflict. But referring to the Books of Isaiah and Revelation, it is seen that the King must defend the land first before he can truly tend to the needs of the people. His first calling is to protect them against their enemies, and secure their homeland. It is after this great battle that He is able to bring His children the kind of life they want, a return to peace and rest in their native city.
So it is purely a fulfilment of duty and Scripture that decades later, after Ethiopia had settled and started to grow and improve as a nation, that the King was able to extend Himself personally to other states of Afrikan heritage. Judah, after protecting the Hola City in the Battle of Armageddon against the Italian Beast, came in the aid and fortifying interest of scattered Joseph thus repairing the breach in Isra’el.

“Thus says the Lord God: ‘Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves.
I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it’ says the Lord.”

One Kingdom, One King

 “Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘As for you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and for the children of Israel, his companions.’ Then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ Then join them one to another for yourself into one stick, and they will become one in your hand.
“And when the children of your people speak to you, saying, ‘Will you not show us what you mean by these?’— say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.”’ And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes.
“Then say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. Then they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
“David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. Then they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell there, they, their children, and their children’s children, forever; and My servant David shall be their prince forever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people. The nations also will know that I, the Lord, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.”’”
(Ezekiel 37:12-28)

With the formation of the Ethiopian World Federation (EWF) in 1937 and the Organization for African Unity (OAU) in 1963, came a long journey to the true reunion of the broken bands of Judah and Ephraim. The EWF promised a home and service to the descendants of Ethiopians and all other Afrikans whose ancestors were taken from the Motherland. The OAU gave hope to local Afrikan presidents striving for independence from Europe, that they indeed could rule their own land. Afrikan Liberation and Restoration was the mandate for the entire Black race.
In 1961 and 1964 RasTafari were given special welcome to Ethiopia on the Emperor’s behalf, where they could formally make their plight for repatriation to Ethiopia and receive His promises of land. The Jamaican Government hoped that the first “Mission to Ethiopia” trip would have proved disheartening, but the Emperor along with the Presidents of Nigeria, Liberia and Sierra Leone were welcoming of the idea of return. They saw it as an extension of Marcus Garvey’s work for the Diaspora, being a Black man who was highly respected by Afrikan Leaders. Instead of finding nowhere to call home, the lost and stolen sheep of Isra’el had finally been claimed by their True Lord and His fellow leaders. These two visits of RasTafari and other Jamaican officials to Ethiopia started a bond with the Emperor that could not be broken by any naysayer.

“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.  
I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.  
But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.
I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.”
(John 10:8-16)



In this kingly duty, the Emperor journeyed outside the Continent to the Caribbean where He knew many Afrikans lived in exile and poverty through colonialism. He came to them to give encouragement and blessings from His kingdom. He went especially to visit Jamaica, after being visited twice by the RasTafari. His arrival was like lightning striking from the East to the West. It is recorded by the elders who were present to see the King arrive, that the day that the Ethiopian Airlines reached Jamaican airspace was filled with fulfilling prophecies and Godly signs:
When the Emperor’s plane could be heard approaching the Jamaican airport, the misty rain that blanketed the awaiting gathering suddenly stopped with a high wind which instantly dried their clothing. Seven doves were seen to fly across the sky as the plane parted the clouds with the sun and landed.  A tremendous and roaring sound burst from the crowd waiting to see the Emperor in the flesh. His Majesty was moved to tears by the over-excited welcome being given, which was nothing like anything He ever witnessed before in His honour by a foreign nation. He couldn’t even dismount the plane for fear of being trampled and it was up to His true servants - the RasTafari - to calm the masses so that the Emperor could disembark. Like Yesus before Him, He was assured by His new disciples (RasTafari Elders Moritmo Planno, Douglas Mack, Prince Emmanuel Charles and others) of His own Ivine Nature, being more than just a man to them.

Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.” (Psalm 68:4)

For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matthew 24:27)

Unto His Majesty JAH RasTafari came the gathering of His people, a people who knew Him for who and what He truly was: the King of Judah, Shiloh. The gathering of Afrika’s lost children unto their true King was a necessary event in the fulfilment of Judah’s victorious reign for Isra’el:



“Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise;
Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies;
Your father’s children shall bow down before you.
Judah is a lion’s whelp;
From the prey, my son, you have gone up.
He bows down, he lies down as a lion;
And as a lion, who shall rouse him?
The scepter 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 49:8-10)




RasTafari Brethren were given more than one opportunity to meet personally with the Emperor during His short visit on the island. They were afforded an audience that only dignitaries and rich members of society were given. And this was not unnoticed by said ruling class, who would never be “caught dead” associating with the “dutty” Rastas. Like Yesus Kristos, the Emperor did not treat the lower class of society as scum or riff-raff. He dined with the “unwashed ones” even though the Pharisees objected by rules of law (See Matthew 15 and Mark 7). The reality was that the Jamaican government had been hoping the Emperor would ignore the RasTafari, so that their “nonsense” about His divinity and their demands for reparations and repatriation to Ethiopia would stop. Jamaica’s White leaders wanted a confirmation from Him that He was not a Black God. But His Imperial Majesty did quite the opposite: ignored the drama and welcomed the RasTafari with open arms.

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.  
My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.  I and My Father are one.” (John 10: 27-30)


Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.
(Revelations 3:9-11)




RasTafari brethren met privately with the Emperor where He presented them with medallions for their Ethiopian patriotism. They presented the Emperor with gifts also, as the three Magi that came to meet the baby Yesus. Repatriation documents were even submitted for His review. The Emperor made it known that Ethiopia would remain open to her lost brothers and sisters in the West as they shared the same blood and race. All that RasTafari had been enduring at the hands of the Jamaican elite was paying off with such affection. Their unwavering faith saw them - His disciples and followers - accepted and acknowledged by their True King in the faces of all those who scorned and denied them.
The Emperor through the EWF offered Ephraim return and restoration to Judah. RasTafari and all other Afrikans of the Diaspora were given a chance to start their lives again in the kingdom of their forefathers. The land grant of five gashas at Shashemene - private land of the Emperor - is considered by RasTafari to be the prepared New Jerusalem. It is a reward to those who followed the Shepherd. In the earlier decades from the 1960s to 1970s groups of RasTafari moved to Afrika and dwelled in the Land of their God and fathers, fulfilling the restoration of the Saints to New Jerusalem. The Twelve Tribes of Isra’el is one mansion that still aids in successful migration to Ethiopia from the West to date.
(See in addition to the Scripture below Jeremiah 31:6-11, Zephaniah 3:9-20, Revelation 7:1-6, 9-17).



Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 
Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men,
and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.
God Himself will be with them and be their God.
(Revelation 21:1-3)


But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“ Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name;
 You are Mine.
 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
 And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
 When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.
  For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour;
  I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
 Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honoured,
 And I have loved you; Therefore I will give men for you,
 And people for your life.
 Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your descendants from the east,
 And gather you from the west;
I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’  And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’
Bring My sons from afar, And My daughters from the ends of the earth—
Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
(Isaiah 43:1-7).




 The Awakened RasTafari Identity

And so, bearing these various points in mind, RasTafari adopted in part an Ethiopian Hebrew-Israelite identity and loyality to the reborn King David of Judah. This Iritual Identity comes first by feeling that we belong to another land and livity being the children of the “stolen ones.” This very real and blood-tied Afrikan awakening became a sacred and Ital lifestyle promoted by Black I-story and tradition. It planted foundation within the Biblical Hebrew Covenant of Isra’el where Ethiopia and Judah are married by the union of Solomon’s Ethiopian son Emperor Menelik I and the Ark of the Covenant. His rule brought Ethiopia, Arabia and other parts of the Afrikan Empire under “Jewish” rule – branches of David from the Nile to the Euphrates as promised in the Covenant of Abraham.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
“That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness;
A King shall reign and prosper,
And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
 In His days Judah will be saved,
And Israel will dwell safely;
Now this is His name by which He will be called:

THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

(Jeremiah 23:5-6)


In that awakening RasTafari proclaim that the Light of the Living God is within us, and that we have come to stretch our hands forth unto JAH through Ethiopia. I and I know our righteous Ivine purpose through the Person, Word and Irit of King of Kings and Lord of Lords Emperor Haile Selassie I (Psalm 68:5-6, 31). Being the One Who fought for us, represented us, and reclaimed us truly marks a Messenger and the Elect of JAH Himself. Therefore RasTafari are those who were once displaced but who found their true identity through being positively affected by His Majesty’s works and reign. RasTafari sight and acknowledge the Root of David that has the Anointing upon Him, and hail livication unto Ethiopia, her King, Hola Land, relics and Way of Life.
Judah and Joseph/Ephraim reveal themselves to be alive in the Black Nations who were stolen from all parts of Afrika in the Transatlantic Slave Trade. In knowing this truth, RasTafari bring ourselves out of White Supremacist mainstream bondage back into Black Heritage. Being restored unto Ethiopia Afrika means standing up for that blood-right and never accepting foreign doctrine over our own indigenous heritage, truth and knowledge. The Black God-King’s Irit and mission for righteousness, truth and knowledge is a saving-power to the race and to all races that want to come out of this current state of slavery the world is in. The Black God-King is a Captain of Peace and Right that champions policy, state, family and church as Servant of the Living God of His People - Selah. Because the King of Kings wanted to see peace on Earth and goodwill pass between all races and countries, we are all flying the banner of JAH RasTafari when we abide in peace, rights, Inity and love, with Ethiopia and her God-Head; making New Jerusalem the reality of our world. 

For He will deliver the needy when he cries,
The poor also, and him who has no helper.
 He will spare the poor and needy,
And will save the souls of the needy.
He will redeem their life from oppression and violence;
And precious shall be their blood in His sight.
And He shall live;
And the gold of Sheba will be given to Him;
Prayer also will be made for Him continually,
And daily He shall be praised.
(Psalm 72: 12-15)



Let JAH be praised Itinually!
