Ready for the next step

For almost a year I have been part of a Rites of Passage program here in Baltimore City called Egbe Akonkorin and my line is Segun whose purpose it to reconnect to your ancestors and help strenghten communiyt. For me it started in June 2017 and it was an experience. From reciting the pledge, practicing how to facilitate libations, and understanding the value of community through our Afrikan traditions. This experience, is a spiritual journey as well as a great way to connect with other great men in the community that is about restoring and building up their community. This journey was to connect with our ancestors through culture. The ancestors are beings in my family name who has passed on. Personally, I dont know their name but has always thought about them. Also as a child, I always recognized the connection I have to Afrika. These identities have traveled with everywhere I go, making Rastafari such a place to thrive and grow into my roots and culture. So in this Egbe, The spiritual system that is utilized is Ifá, which I will share later that the West Afrikan systems has always been part of Rastafari.

Ifá is a West Afrikan spiritual system that was practiced before the spread of Christianity and Islam in the colonial period. It was carried over with the ancestors during the Great Maafa which we know as the Transatlantic Slave Trade, it landed in the Carribean, and the Americas and given different names. The West Afrikan spiritual systems may not all be the same but are similar. Through these spiritual systems the ancestors fought against their enslavement, they held onto their faith and culture. Others submitted to the enslaver’s religion and god, revolutionaries ended up passing away and was not duplicated as fast as children being born.

The European Religion, Christianity made sure to give all new born children a Christian name, and belief with the intention to not follow their ancestors. Laws were created demonizing the practice, which some people call as Obeah, not realizing that our great heroes used it to fight off white supremacy. Heroes like Nanny of the Maroons, Toussaint L’ouverture, Harriet Tubman and others. I went to the Harriet Tubman museum and saw this description about her spirituality.

This book speaks of the Laws in Jamaica that were passed outlawing the home religion.

Interestingly in the Introduction, Ras McPherson writes how Leonard Howell preached Rastafari with Kumina roots and theology, and how it was evident in his drumming and chanting. Kumina is another West African Spiritual System that also incorporates the Orishas. I love how this book broke down Rastafari in the first pages, Rastafari is an ancient Ethiopian-Egyptian-Hebraic-West African religio cultural descent. Leonard Howell incorporated the West Afrikan roots, Joseph Hibbert taught the Ethiopian Coptic/Khemetic Freemasonry and Archibald Dunkley taught that Haile Selassie I is Christ returned but not the Almighty creator.

Support that brothers work

Moving on:

I am a product of this racist strategy, to have a body of people to forget who they are and be under the control of a foreigner. My grandfather migrated from Jamaica to New York under the benefits of being a member of the Catholic church. From his integrity and character, being part of the ministerial staff, a family man and active Christian, he was able to migrate to the states. I give thanks because of his role and the religion I am able to write to you now. So my journey is not to run a crusade in opposing Christianity, for my journey is to find the Almighty where ever I walk and educate ones on what I find. But most of all to be free.

I saw a post the other day:

“I’m not religious, I’m spiritual.”
Translation: I don’t want to be accountable to anyone or anything. And the only moral truth I believe in is whatever I subjectively decide is moral and true.

I read that and laugh, some folks are really oblivious to the variation of people in this world, there are Shamans in this world that is way more connected to the Most High than your everyday Sunday church goer.

But once again I am the product of this age old order, which at one time was a the New World Order, Christianity has been embedded in so many minds forcibly that any remembrance of what you come from, to who you are has been viewed as temptations from the devil. Causing you to become fearful of losing your spot in Heaven and having the loving God hate you.

We must acknowledge that we have been fed the misinterpretation of scripture, we have been given life teachings that ignore our many senses.

7 years ago, 2011 Haile Selassie I came to I in a vision and awakened what was already in me, the holy spirit and since then I been on the quest to be the sun of his but first I was told that I was ushering a satanic spirit. I wrestled and tussled with the idea in my head, until I read and studied his speeches. Once I read enough information of who HE is, I began to link a few groups and people that claim HIM as their Lord and Savior and churches that uphold his name. Many thought that I was looking for some guidance and my response has always been that I was guided here by HIM. I guess you can take that phrase in a multiple of ways but what I was trying to give to the persons asking the question is that Haile Selassie I has molded me and guided to the point to come meet you.

This mission is very similar to what this essay is about, but before going any further, there is this information about HIM that supported my mission. It was that Selassie’s two favorite subjects is History and Comparative Religion.

This gem gave me the fuel to seek the truth. For example, would I find Jah in Hinduism, Buddhaism, Tao, or even in the different sects of Rastafari.

Then, I came across this book by the late Ras McPherson. It spoke of the religion that the ancestors practiced and utilize before the colonization of the European, and how the adherents of its faith fought hard and gave the slave master trouble in settling comfortably with a clear conscience of their crimes. The European marked the ancient faith as devil worship and wrote many laws condemning any people from practicing it; therefore, giving it’s current generation strick punishment for their use and an education/religious system that will only use Jesus as their new God. A God who looked nothing like the ancestors but whose name was used to justify slavery. As time went on Voodoo became “black majic” and its propaganda spread far and wide discouraging majority of the original people from being properly educated on it.

Then I read another speech by Haile Selassie I called “To Chart a Course” and HE spoke to the Nation of Afrika.

Those men who refused to accept the judgment passed upon them by the colonizers, who held unswervingly through the darkest hours to a vision of an Africa emancipated from political, economic, and spiritual domination will be remembered and revered wherever Africans meet. Many of them never set foot on this continent. Others were born, and died here. What we may utter today can add little to the heroic struggle of those who, by their example, have shown us how precious are freedom and human dignity and of how little value is life without them. Their deeds are written in history.

Now that I look back, it’s kind of sad that I needed Haile Selassie I to approve of my journey versus just going by my vibe but that is what happens when you are forced into a world view that doesn’t match with your being. You begin to seek for a higher power to exonerate you, so that you can be free and no longer a slave, at least that is how I see it, but you cannot change the past and I give thanks for each guide assigned to I to make sure that I walk into my destiny. One thing is for sure Haile Selassie I is truly divine and has turned my life around.

I have some resources at the end of this page that further explains Obatala but I would like to attempt to share with you what I have learned thus far. Obatala is the second son of the creator Oludumadre and was sent to create the earth and all of its inhabitants from the body of water. The myth says that while he creating human beings, he brewed his own palm wine from the palm seed he planted before making humans, got drunk and created human beings with flaws. As a consequence for his actions he swore a vow of sobriety, in fact, when ones offer to Obatala you should never offer alcohol for it would be offensive. When Obatala made this vow, he began to wear the white cloth to represent purity, to be an Orisha of good character and integrity. Obatala created all the Orishas because his gift is his creativity, yet the Orishas still have their own identity. The Awo (mysteries/esoteric meanings) of Obatala’s white cloth is the representation of the universe coming together. The weaving of the cloth represents creation being formed first from thought, or the light shown on the cloth bringing potential form into existence (Fatunmbi, pg. 6)
What I find even more interesting about Obatala is his symbolism when compared to other religious systems, his role and responsibility is very much in line or similar to Jesus Christ, for Obatala is the creator of earth and all of its inhabitants. Also Obatala is an androgynous being meaning that Obatala can be male or female, so this Orisha can also be viewed as Lady Mary of Zion, Yeshua’s mother. Reading this information brought joy to me because my own spiritual journey has kept me in line with the Messiah. Briefly, I will share with you that when I was in my early twenties, I walked into my grandmothers church and one of her sisters, who has transitioned, prayed for me. Her prayer was powerful, for when I closed my eyes and listened to her words, I felt the room shake, it sounded like marching and thunder, it was very loud in my ears. It made my knees buckle and when I was about to fall, I opened my eyes and saw everything was back to normal. The noise stopped but when I closed my eyes, the thunder and the weakness in my knees continued. It was very bizarre but not abnormal for me, I always felt a very strong connection with the Most High. After this experience in the church, I became a student of Christianity, studying the bible and joining a church with my soon to be wife, got married in the church and had children. Everything that we did was based off of that experience, I hold the spirit of Yeshua to be true, self-evident but a calling and I’m not ashamed of it. As time moved on, around 7 years later I received another vision on March 22, 2011. Haile Selassie I came to my dream, HE bent over grabbed my neck and instantly I began speaking in tongues. The Holy Spirit radiated throughout my whole body and lifted me up off of the floor as I laid their on my back, an experience I shall never forget, that I became open to seeing Rastafari as the evolution of Christianity. I boldly declare that we are in the time of Revelations. I am a Rasta man to the bone, Haile Selassie is my guide. As I wrote above about the Speech HE gave to Chart a Course, HE speaks of the Spiritual Domination that the ancestors has experienced and how these ancestors will be <strong>remembered and revered</strong> whenever Afrikans meet. These profound words from the Christian Emperor really opened me up to the Spirituality of the Ancestors. That 7 years from my vision of HIM, I would be initiated into Ifa and Obatala the Chief of the White cloth as my Ori/Head. I am an unofficial Priest to the world but ordained Priest by the Most High, my compassion and creativity for people is from up above and I am honored that I am being used for this work. In Rastafari, we always say <strong>Know thyself! </strong>I am overjoyed that I have gone deeper knowing who I am, and my purpose. I pray that I can help you find yours.

Receiving my marks

One of the hardest things that I ever done in my life, this test represented the will and fight for freedom, my ancestors fought their way during slavery, pulling themselves over obstacles only meant for the determined. This is a test the Egbe took in South Carolina, we had to move through the Bog, attain a reed and bring it back to shore. The mud was the perfect home for Oysters, these organisms were stacked all through the out the mud and were razor sharp. Trying to make it shore, I was cut a few times but the adrenaline and determination to survive and make it ashore was my only focus. I truly felt the ancestors with me, A Dupe!

Lastly I was given a name, for being Omo Obatala (Child of Obatala) my name is Oladiípò which means Honor becomes many.

Here are a few things that speak of the characteristic of Obatala:

When I read this, I saw a lot of things in common with myself.

White

Areas of Influence: Knowledge, leadership, fatherhood, justice and the legal system, geology, people with special needs, the military

Entities associated with: Our Lady of Mercy

Tarot: Justice, the Emperor

Chakra: Crown Chakra

obatala’s children

The children of Obatala are intellectual, methodical organizers. They like to think their decisions through. They have strong ideas of what is right and wrong. They hold themselves to high standards. They can also be neurotic clean freaks. Many times, children of Obatala are impetuous and hot-headed when younger and then grow up to be cool, calm adults. They can suffer from frequent headaches or sinus problems and do not hold their liquor well. Many times they will be drawn to legal, military or careers involving geology and/or engineering. They like to get outdoors. Normally, their relationships (romantic and otherwise) will be very long-term. They are slow to anger but watch out when they do, it’s going to get ugly!

Peace and love, Jah Rastafari blessings

For today is April 3rd but the 2nd was the anniversary of Haile Selassie being named Emperor of Ethiopia in 1930.

Rastafari Unites the Races: I dare you to read this

Sep 01, 2016 by Shamou - 0 Comments

Greetings in the name of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie the First, It brings me great joy to serve HIM in all Spirit and Truth. I rather die for righteousness and truth than murder my brother. Hell fire to all phony and thieving people worldwide, that continue to steal the mediations without applying the proper credit to its creator. Same way we hail Jah for giving us the power and strength to be great, we bun out the one that think that it is them that make these things possible, or take credit for themself FYAH.

With all humility, give each man their due credit. Now back to the topic. Rastafari unites the races and the proof is in the face. As a Rastaman growing up in the words of HIM. I have observed and learned that there is still racism or its cousin bigotry lingering in the movement, despite what the Almighty has said there are matters that need to be addressed. In particular, the acceptance of the white man in Rastafari and I will be honest with you, being a black man, growing up in black dominated societies and listening to black infused music and messages, I myself look at the white Rastaman as an odd picture. Very similar to the Asian viewing the blackman in their society. Alarms flare up, caution, observation takes place. For the sake that what we have is like a diamond, and any threat from outside the village must be watched carefully. But as time moves on, and you assess the heart of the individual, and you see that this individual is a kinsmen.

Shem Ham Japheth

Now, I want to alert you, probably the most popular Rastaman in the movement was Bob Marley, some may say Peter Tosh or any other great musical priest but it is Bob that sold the most records, and received probably the most spins. I mean who doesn’t know the lyrics to his songs, almost everyone whether they are a Ras or not.. But have you actually seen him. Bob Marley is mixed, his father is a white man, and his mother a black woman. The acceptance of him and his message carries the weight of both races. His white DNA, enables all white people to relate to him and his cause, which is Haile Selassie’s cause. Just like the blackman, the true white man see the injustice and folly in society and will burn it down as well.

Bob-Marley-002-1440x900

I remember watching Sa Neter on his topic, White Rasta Imposter and he was asking the White Bobo Priest questions that was geared to make the Priest look foolish, but the Priest stayed true. Wasn’t phased and answered his questions in humility, stating what we all know that the black is the origination of mankind. In my opinion Sa Neter’s mission was a bust and Haile Selassie the First Conquered once again. Remember HE is the conquering Lion, the “ing” means it never stop doing it but is continually doing.

Another example, is the Almighty himself, Haile Selassie the First, his skin complexion looks as if HE is also mixed with white DNA, or is Arab. HE doesn’t look full Bantu or Oromo. His hair isn’t kinky like mines, HE has loosescurls like a child of a mixed heritage but yet we ignore what we see. The evidence is in his face, look at HIM, the blood of all races are in HIM!!!!

Haile Selassie Profile

Then read his words, that Until the color of mans skin is no more significance than the color of his eyes, there will always be war. And it is true, we are at war now, a serious race war. A vain war, where the wicked man stay in high places, the heavens, running the world. These idiots should have no control nor say over InI, but because we war with each other the real battle is ignored.

I also like to address the white man, that white privilege is real. You must use your privilege to fight for people like myself, held back and oppressed because of the color of skin. This is your mission, this is how you can serve Jah as well, you will not succeed in telling the black man how to live and how to be black, history done messed up that possibility for you. I mean some people may receive you but not as much if you serve our people by speaking against racial injustice. You have the stage to be like a Moses, speak to the Pharaohs and set the people free, from the Prison Pipeline, Man made diseases and its testing on poor income areas where a lot of black and white people live, I mean the injustice goes on and on everywhere. Fight for the victims of the Flint Water Crisis or local crisis. If you have His Majesty’s light then shine like HIM. Put procrastination down and serve. I’m quite sure that your works will be much appreciated by the Blackman who has trouble taking you serious. I’m sorry but you are in a position that you must prove yourself and earn your keep to truly be accepted. White supremacy is a monster and anything that has a form of it, will be criticized. And with that being said respect to Tim Wise, he goes around the world speaking on this injustice before an audience of his peers.

“Death to all white and black oppressors, Life to all white and black freedom fighters”

You know as a Blackman, our heroes in the movement is ones like Marcus Garvey, who said look to the Black king. He was such a high advocate for the black man, though he has received help from whites as he reports in his speech, the Negros greatest enemy. And it is also reported that it was his own people that stabbed him in the back, so why blackman are we fighting so hard for the black people when history has already shown that there are snakes among us? I rather have a loyal white man with me than room full of black haters and gossips. We can’t blame slavery for the poor character that plagues some of our people. Black on Black crime remains an issue no matter how much the pigs shoot us down. Before Chemtrails was sprayed above, the uncle toms turned us in. Garvey has also shared that he doesn’t plan on taking all black people back to Africa because of the poor character that he has seen in some of them.

Haile Selassie the First has shared that there was Ethiopians that molested other Ethiopians during the national crisis, the invasion. In fact, it was other Ethiopians that turned their back on HIM, without the influence of the Italians. We can’t defend all black people, in my opinion some of these traitors should be burned at the stake. We need to identify the spirit and heart of each man and build with him, that is progress and a great way to hail the invisible Jah in his children. Peace and love, we can do this. I learned this past month, that a close person of mine decided to stay with the Black Rastaman, even though her father was a Klan member, they been together for 20 plus years. I was in awe when I heard this, you got to respect these things, and acknowledge that people like this exists. Jah children is all over.

The Mirror of the I AM: Haile Selassie I is lord

Mar 08, 2015 by Shamou - 0 Comments

The Mirror

Greetings in the name of the Most High Yah Rastafari Haile Selassie I, Qedemawi Haile Selassie and Her Imperial Majesty Empress Menen. I greet you all in love and peace. I will like to share with the I, some discoveries that iman has come across that is very intriguing. This week’s Torah portion highlights something that is very big, and it is the mirror of God in Man.

I will get right into it, in Exodus 32, Moses leaves camp and goes to the mount to converse with Yah. Moses is there for a while, and the children of Israel becomes impatient and then outraged at the length of stay that Moses embarks on with the Supreme. So the children decide to create a new God that they can worship, for they started to give up on Moses and Yah, even though it was through Moses, the strength of Yah freed them from bondage.

So Aaron, Moses brother handles the situation by asking the children of Israel, to hand over all of their gold to melt it into a bull. Once the Bull is crafted, the children will offer worship unto it. Here is the intriguing part, Yah becomes vexed with the children of Israel, to the point that he wants to kill them. Moses hearing what Yah is saying becomes his counselor and calms Yah down, to the point where Yah apologizes. This apology somewhat has me baffled, in the context and the later what unfolded, it is to my interpretation that the Almighty isn’t apologizing for what he said but is being sensitive to Moses feelings, for Moses doesn’t know what is going on at home for God to say this, so it is shocking to him but he will soon find out and will mirror these same judgements.

To make this extremely clear, if you look into the blue letter bible lexicon, the word LORD is translated as Yehovah, and repent is translated as to say sorry.

The story gets extremely better, after Moses calms down Yah, Moses decides to check on the children of Israel. He comes to find out that children are doing exactly what Yah was complaining about, Moses takes that same spirit of Anger, or should I say the I AM is reflected in him, then onto the children. Moses then has the Levitical Priests, Aaron and his sons to destroy, kill the ones that lost faith in Yah.

This event has really brought to my attention the mirror personification of Yah in his servant. The same spirit of violence consumed Moses very quickly, it was a great example of the Tewahedo, that oneness between God and Man. Similar to the same type of spirit that was displayed in Haile Selassie when HE prophesied judgment in the League of Nations, saying “It is us today but it will be you tomorrow.”

It is clear to me that Moses is a true Messiah for the children of Israel, Yah concerns, wishes and judgments are reflected in him. This story displays the friendship and like mindedness between God in man and Man in God. It is appreciated to develop this type of relationship between the Most Ivine and the ivine.

We as people also display this same type of mirror personification, for what upsets the Holy Man also upset the Supreme Holy Man.

How many times have you operated in anger but was able to change your mind and calm yourself from hurting anyone? It is plenty of times where we’re thinking that being violent and rash is the works of the Devil, but in this case violence is justified. For we know that God is a jealous God so his anger can be transported in us and then manifested.

The beauty of it all, is that every man is created in his image and that the Holy Spirit’s, the Supreme’s breath is placed inside of man, so all people that submit to Yah will be able to manifest his emotions and discipline.

In the Spirituality of this event, we must first identify ourselves. In the latter end of the portion, we read Matthew chapters 9-11. There are a few things that Yeshua said that depicts this oneness between him and his disciples, for example his 12 disciples are granted the ability, power to heal the sick and spread the word of the Most High. They reflect the teachings of the Most High unto the people. There is a few verse that leads you to see what I mean, for example in Matt 10:24, Yeshua says that the disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. Verse 25, he says that it is enough for his the disciple to be as his master, and the servant as his Lord. This leads into the motto that Rastafari uses, coined by Bob Marley, “Give us the teachings of His Majesty for we don’t want no devils philosophy.”

wpid-photogrid_14258034671342.jpg.jpeg

(Some don’t agree with me, but its more that they don’t agree with Haile Selassie I, who’s favorite subjects are History and Comparative Religion, here is Sistar Donisha Pendergrast seeking the oneness between Rastafari and the Hindu faith, our lord has also showed us and taught about this oneness between the Christianity and Yoga)

In reference to the verses, His Imperial Majesty is the reflected lord and we are his servants. Let me bring your attention to the middle portion of the weeks reading 1 Kings 18.

Obadiah meaning the “Servant of Yehovah” runs into Elijah after he and Ahab split up, a servant is also identified as a worshipper. When Obadiah see’s Elijah, The servant of Yah says, “ Is it really you my lord?” Elijah responds, “ I am.” Elijah confirms that he is the Obadiah’s lord, In the BLB Lexicon, lord translate into a few things, here is two, master and king, it also defines as one who is “possessor of heaven and earth”. It’s gets deeper, In the BLB Lexicon Elijah is also spelled as Eliah. Well if you spell Eliah backwards we have HAILE.

What is hidden is revealed, that Haile bears the name as lord, who also has possession of Heaven and Earth. Look at the Orb he has in his left hand, the one who carries the Orb, is master, king, and earth rightful ruler. Haile Selassie I is lord, without a shadow if a doubt, and we as Rastafari will not be wrong in proclaiming HIM as so, studying is good isn’t it.

wpid-photogrid_14258005309592.jpg.jpeg

Now the uppercase LORD means the Almighty, Yehovah the supreme one, and plenty times you can read about the lord Haile Selassie always giving reference to the Almighty at the end of his speeches. Plenty of times His Imperial Majesty reflects the Supreme, the one true God as he prophesied about Europes judgement. For example the when Eliah, challenged the many prophets of Baal, for him to send fire on the bull that they placed on the altar, though they thought they ruled the land, they and their followers were able to kill and torment the children of Yah, Obadiah explained that he had to hide prophets of Yah in caves to resist the wrath of Jezebel, the wife of Ahab. So when Eliah appeared he showed them the power of Yah by drenching the altar with water before the false prophets and then through his WORD SOUND and POWER sent a consuming fire on the altar that dried up the water and cooked the carcass, this event led to the death of these fasle prophets by the utterance of Haile, Eliah and this is reflected on by his words, “It is us today it will be you tomorrow” then war took place and wreak havoc, killing a high percentage of people in Europe. Who has eyes to see, let him see.

Rastafari are anointed people, and as we keep up with the Torah people we will be able to verify more. Until the next time be safe, and hail up Earth rightful ruler and his Supreme God. Yaaaah Rastafari Haile Selassie I, the reflected man of light.

On another note, that is supplemental information, is that the LORD has driven the Canaanites as well as other communities of people out the land to make it available for the children of Israel that Moses is leading. I have heard some say things like Canaanites are heathen or unpleasing in Yah’s eye, this is also false, for in Matthew 10, the 12 disciples are named as well as their origin. One of them is Simon, who is called the Canaanite. Canaan was also a son of Ham, who is defined as the black race. Yah is totally merciful as, that the Canaanites who driven off of their land was not condemnation for one of their own was given the power to heal and preach.

wpid-photogrid_14258018043392.jpg.jpeg

It is also good to identify that in Matt 10:21, Yeshua states what will happen as the negative influence of a positive work. He basically states that black on black, black on white, white on white crime will ensue. He says that brother shall kill brother, father and his child, children rebel against their parents and have them put to death. We find this happening a lot in these current days and through the use of the media, everyday something is on the news that is to this effect, in the balance of polarity, positive and negative charge.

wpid-photogrid_14258022802152.jpg.jpeg

(A Rastafari disciple being targeted by his brothers in police uniform, remember Coral Gardens, Rastafari are still being persecuted under Babylons created sterotypes)

I created an analogy based off of this iditation, to gather a picture, to display a oneness.

Yeshuah HaMoshiyah is to the law and Haile Selassie is to Yeshua

wpid-photogrid_14258042189742.jpg.jpeg

If Rastafari truly follows HIM then in similitude they will emulate Yeshua, very similar to if one follow Yeshua they will also follow the Law.

Shalom and Selam family

May the Lord bless your soul to keep you on HIM.

Glory to the King of kings and Lord of lords, who in that ivine name comes as the Power of God, Haile Selassie I and Empress Menin Asfaw the balance of masculine and feminine energy.

It is very important that one and ones reads this very careful and then check it out for them self. We have been bamboozled and tricked into owing our allegiance to something without doing our proper research. It has formulated us in being in some type of Holy Gang, causing a Holy War. Holy War, a term I remember hearing in elementary school that disturbed me, how is a war ever holy? Why do people want to kill another for God? I know that the bible say that the kingdom of God suffers violence but why we are fighting over land when Jah is Mighty cannot be overtaken, plus he is creator and has enough counsel and nourishment for everyone.I know that there is a trace of evil in every man, for every man thinks at some point and time that they are doing the right thing but even that can be flawed. So with this writing piece, I pray that the Most High is pleased and if not, let HIM send correction.

Jah truly guides, I have left society for quite a while now to develop a companion to my thoughts and I have realized, that God speaks to I through my thoughts. But so does Satan. The tv shows had it right the whole time, God on one side and the devil on the other. Each one trying to counsel me, but with prayer and fasting I follow the good and try my best to heed it’s advice. The devil makes things enticing and the more I follow Jah, the greater the war within me becomes but the duller the sense and desire becomes as well, where it gets to the point that the mind will try to reminicse; therefore, images re-emerge to try to entice you but if your lower man is not aroused then your Spirit man has become the victor. HaileluJah.

Before I proceed I will like to share what the Egyptian Book of the Dead says about Heru and Set as interpreted by Dr. Muata Ashby

Set represents the lower self of all human beings. His impulsiveness and reckless passionate pursuits are the ever present enemy of the aspirant or anyone else who is striving for control over the urges of the mind, body and senses. The Lower Self is represented by the desires of the mind whch are the soul into the varied situations of pain and pleasure in the world of time and space (the relative existsence).

It goes further on to say

These desires desires lead to a degraded mental capacity which manifests in the forms of selfishness, greed, hatred, anger, lust and their human failings. These faults are mental complexes, termed as fetters. The fetters of the mind represent the soul from dicscovering peace, harmony and oneness with the universe. Out of greed and jealousy, Set killed Asar

and might I add, similar to Italy which was once a brother to Ethiopia attacks Ethiopia out of Envy...further on

He (Set) represents the ego consciouness in a human being which kills the higher expression of the soul, if the ego is mastered, it can be a great servant to the Divine Self. This is symbolized by Set protecting the Boat of Ra from the demon serpent of chaos.

Set serving_protecting Heru

Heru and Set

From left to right: Set is killing the Serpent at the front of the boat, while Heru sits and witness it. The oneness of the mind by keeping the lower man, low and as a servant. Not to stray off topic but I will cover in a later writing piece how this relationship is depicted in the Angel Abaddon.

But as for the mind, I find this highly true, for our greatest enemy is our own self, our mind if not controlled will keep us down. I give thanks for Yeshua, conquering his lower man, his mind was trying to get him to commit suicide…but he repsonded with Word, thou shall not tempt the Lord thy God….for his mind was trying to get to him scheme as well
Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Matt 4:6-11

Perfection at its best, Give thanks for Yeshua

Here is a picture of Heru-Set

Heru-Set

The picture depicts that the enemy or foe of truth is inside each of us. Set, the symbol of evil is actually a part of Heru that must be conquered and sublimated. In this aspect Set, represents the beast or demons we must conquer in ourselves.

This gives me a clearer understanding of the verse. James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

For your mind knows God but so does the devil, for he resides there as well using what you learned against you, like when the serpent said, ” you shall not surely die”

Here is the rest of the explanation of the Heru-Set picture:

Ignorance, passions, desires, lust, greed, depression, insecuruity, fear and pain. Through the journey of life, a battle rages between the Higher Self and the lower, and only by living a life of virtue can the “God of Lght” inside come alive and vanquish the unrighteous lower nature. This the underlying theme of the Ausran Resurrection (Ashby, p23).

Before I started to read about Kemit, I read a book by Alfredo Johnson named ” Behold The Six Point Star of David Spelled and Symbolized Haile Selassie Yahweh Elohim

HE speaks of the two symbols upon the pharoahs crown, as a hawk and a snake. Means and symbolize the left and right, lower and upper, hemisphere of the brain coming together as one within. He further writes, that while on the cross, the criminal that asked the Lord remember me you come into your kingdom, Yeshua who is in the midst of the blasphemer, ego and the fearful, and submissive is rewarded with Paradise of having Christ within and no bondage from the flesh of the lower man.

Christ crucified

One of the hardest things in my life wasn’t telling my beautiful wife to marry me, or running across the middle to catch a pass from my quarterback, or spending hours in a cell getting ready to be transported to Rikers Island but the hardest things was leaving what I was taught in Christianity and sighting Ra’stafari. Bwoy…I tell you that was the hardest thing for me to do. My mind was the battle field for good versus evil. I stuck it out through Christ and now I am Rastaman who became knowledgeable of what I have been sheltered away from, and through the victory I was revealed the light that we can co-exist. I take Jesus wherever I go because it wasn’t Jesus who was ever the problem, it was the culture of the ism and skims that came with Christianty, the labels. It was the “sect and doctrines” that I left that tried to pursue I and ridicule I as some type of heathen. But I tell you that when one wakes up and leaves what has been indoctrinated in them like downpressive religion, everyone who has something to say begins to show their true colors, no more friends, no more love which is against what my Jesus Christ has said. For I never cursed him, I just left the hospital organization and asked him to be my Emmanuel, my home doctor. For I still hail HIM as the great physician. (Mark 2:17)

I have learned from the Buddha which precedes the earthly appearance of Yeshua, he teaches that the root of all evil is ignorance (avijjā) and false views (micchā ditthi). And that doubt is one of the 5 hindrances to the clear understanding of Truth and to spiritual progress. The five hindrances are sensuous lust, ill will, physical and mental torpor and languor, restlessness and worry, and doubt.

He is also speaks of seeing, is better than believing, when ones believe they still cannot prove what they subscribe to but if you see it then you are sure. Haile Selassie I, Jah Rastafari is like this for me. I see HIM, just like how Peter saw Yeshua as the Messiah. He no longer believed but knee who HE is and this great revelation causes you to become more humble because the teacher was humble.

The Buddha goes in deeper to express, that it not proper for a wise who maintains truth to come to the conclusion: this alone is Truth, and everything else is false.

If they can’t personally see and know that this alone is truth, if you can’t prove it then you are blind and everyone else that follows you is also blind. And the bible speaks about the blind leading the blind.

This comparative study of religion has helped me to be fair, humble and enlightened that people of the earth has been visited by the Almighty’s messengers and that we as people give it titles and creates sects, the Buddha teaches that truth is not Christian, Buddhism, Muslim and so on.

And in this trod Haile Selassie I teaches I the same thing

But now into what I have to share

Let’s start with The Emperor Haile Selassie I. ..read his words as he honors an Indian man with an honorary degree, Doctor of Letters

While the different religions in their historical forms bind us to limited groups and militate against the development of loyalty to the world community, the mystics have always stood for the fellowship of humanity,” so Your Excellency has taught us. And in an effort to carry out this teaching to pursue truth – to promote those bonds common to the human race – Your Excellency has dedicated your whole life. To free the human race from superstition and fear that originate from ignorance; to enable him to transcend the apparent obstacles of race and religion; and to help him recognize the blood-ties of the whole human race, Your Excellency has laboured. To this generation, so tormented between modern knowledge and ancient faith, your scrupulous studies have pointed the way by which man may be saved from traditional superstition and modern scepticism.

Were the thoughts of Plato and Socrates, the beliefs of Christianity and Judaism not harmonized with Hindu philosophy; were Yoga and its various stages not exposed to Western thought; had Western religion and philosophy not been exposed to the philosophy and religion of the East through Your Excellency’s persistent endeavour, how much the poorer would human thought have been!

In the history of the human race, those periods which later appeared as great have been the periods when the men and the women belonging to them had transcended the differences that divided them and had recognized in their membership in the human race a common bond. Your Excellency’s constant endeavour to challenge this generation to transcend its differences, to recognize its common bond and to work towards a common goal has doubtless made this age pregnant with greatness. It is, therefore, in recognition of these labours that We, with unequalled pleasure, bestow upon Your Excellency the degree of Doctor of Letters, honoris causa.

Haile Selassie said, that Ethiopia is the state having the largest Christian population and is by far the largest Christian state in the Middle East. In fact, Ethiopia is unique among the nations of the world in that it is, today, the one remaining Christian state that can trace her history unbroken as a Christian polity from the days when the Roman Empire itself was still a vigorous reality.

Especially we Rastafari must unify, for when HIM held conference for the OAU by introducing an African Charter, he also said “We cannot leave here without having created a single African organization possessed of the attributes We have described. If we fail in this, we will have shirked our responsibility to Africa and to the peoples we lead. If we succeed, then, and only then, will we have justified our presence here.”

We need unity, for with untiy we can get things done which is benfiting humanity.

Now since HIM honors the fruit of Spiritual Kinsmen coming together, you begin to understand why HE sets up his kingdom this way, in the Ethiopian charter. HE writes:

Each provision in this Chapter has a precedent, either in Ethiopian traditions, or in well-established constitutional precedents abroad. No less than 29 articles have been inserted in the Constitution to provide for the protection of the essential liberties and rights of the people. Thus, We have provided that “no one shall be denied the equal protection of the laws”; that “there shall be no discrimination amongst Ethiopian subjects with respect to the enjoyment of all civil rights”; that “there shall be no interference with the exercise in accordance with the law of the rites of any religion or creed by residents of the Empire”; that “freedom of speech and of the press is guaranteed throughout the Empire, in accordance with the law”; that “correspondence shall be subject to no censorship except in time of declared national emergency.” We have, further confirmed our practice that every person accused of a crime shall be presumed innocent until proven guilty and that no one shall be imprisoned for debt, except in case of legally proved fraud.
Unlike many countries of the world, We have provided the right to any resident of the Empire to bring suit against the Government or any ministry,

HIM also speaks at the CONFERENCE OF ORIENTAL ORTHODOX CHURCHES:

it is appropriate to demonstrate our joy by singing with the Psalmist, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity” (Ps. 133:1).
The Unity of the Church, as Your Holinesses well know it, is the will of God and ought to be an inspiring example to all men. It should always be a help and not a hindrance to the unity of men of different religions.

In another speech he says:

To make our wills obedient to good influences and to avoid evil, therefore, is to show the greatest wisdom. In order to follow this aim one must be guided by religion. Progress without religion is just like a life surrounded by unknown perils and can be compared to a body without a soul.

I shared with you earlier that, Haile Selassie seeks to have unity with different religions. A good question to ask is would a man, Tafari Makonnen, and his covenant partner Haile Selassie I be in agreement with this if these religions were of the devil and doesnt supply fruit?

The bible declares that the Earth is the Lord and the Fullness thereof, it also says

God is omnipresent, filling heaven and earth with His character. “‘Am I only a God nearby,’ declares the Lord, ‘and not a God far away? Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him’ declares the Lord. ‘Do not I fill heaven and earth?’ declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 23:23–24)
This same bible declares that we are peculiar people 1 Peter 2:9
When Rastafari say, Haile Selassie I is Earth rightful ruler, HE is then ruler of the Hindu, Muslim, and any other religion that possess his character. HE is the Almighty why are we limtiing HIM to just people like ourselves? did he not create all? does he not love all? was he not hear teaching before Chrisitianity? Ras Paul spoke of our spirit being just babes,
1 Peter 2:2-3
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

We must grow in the word, but also the word on the tablets of our heart, better yet the word that created us in Lord of Hosts image.

In the same speech HE later says:

All human inventions, from the most primitive tool to the modem atom, can help man greatly in his peaceful endeavours. But if they are put to evil purposes they have the capacity to wipe out the human race from the surface of the earth.
It is only when the human mind is guided by religion and morality that man can acquire the necessary vision to put all his ingenuous inventions and contrivances to really useful and beneficial purposes. The progress of science can be said to be harmful to religion only in so far as it is used for evil aims and not because it claims a priority over religion in its revelation to man.
It is important that spiritual advancement must keep pace with material advancement. When this comes to be realized man’s journey toward higher and more lasting values will show more marked progress while the evil in him recedes into the background.
Knowing that material and spiritual progress are essential to man, we must ceaselessly work for the equal attainment of both.

While thinking on this topic, I begin to meditate on the Tower of Babel. Now the Tower of Babel fell because the people wanted to gain salvation without Jah, for they had the unity but left HIM. So if we correct what is wrong we should be able to a put a smile on his face; therefore, we must remain unified and keep Jah with us, but because we have been separated we no longer speak a common tongue or have the same culture because of Babel we now face the challenge of trying to remove the anti-christ restraints in the guise of “isms and skisms”. The same guise that will influence us to say “that the way I serve God is the best way” and that your way is wrong.

It goes even further to the ten commandments, for many use the verse ” ye shall have no other gods before me” Jah is right, but look at the people make their gods into man, gold, cars; therefore created beings, for these things are idolatry and Ras Paul says it well in Romans 1:20-23:
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.

Here Paul speaks that things that we can’t see are revealed by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead:

JAAAAAAAHHHHH Rastafari Haile Selassie I: The Godhead and eternal power

Haile Selassie I teaches that religion is personal, and a good influence that one must be guided in. His ministry and good news is universal.

We humans disappoint him when praise the image instead of understanding the symbolism of it.

But Christiainity is not what only gives this teaching but also Buddha, for there a teaching that If you meet the Buddha, kill him

We must possess and seek the nature of Jah!!!!!!!

In the Selected Speeches, where I try to gather most, if not all of his quotes, introduces his speech of religion as such: Though a devout Christian, His Majesty the Emperor has fostered and encouraged religious tolerance throughout his long reign. In his own words: “Religion is personal; the state is for all.” In Ethiopia, under his forthright leadership, freedom of conscience is guaranteed to all.

It seems to me that Jah Kingdom is vast and all people that does not follow his character shall not inherit it. Think about it, we have bits and pieces of the story. Israel has it’s designated area of land, which doesnt encompass the whole earth; therfore, allowing room for others to dwell in this new earth, this descending Kingdom of Jah.

Jah has a wonderful plan, and his way is the wisest, I was planning to share initially that there are quite a few religions that has been around years before Christianity. I wanted to share the influences of these religions in the christian faith. For I was inspired to do so by His Majesty, where a secondary source writes that his favorite two subjects is History and comparative Religion. You can find this quote in the Academic Honors of HIM, I created a little picture for ones to share with others.

wpid-photogrid_14173672559162.jpg.jpeg

It is ok when we can compare religion, but only in a mutual infiying spirit. For I shared with you that he said we must not become a hindrance to others. A hindrance may cause you make that person, stumble, or cause you to belittle the next man. Each product is not a fruit of Jah. This is similar to Ras Paul’s teachings on food. He teaches that you shouldn’t convict a man of what he should eat, if he eats meat let him eat and don’t offend the person and vice versa with vegetarians. He also said, let not the food convict you. But this is two-fold as well, because we take food for our spirit’s nourishment. This spirit is the Word of God, or God’s teachings. What that man eats, let him eat.

Romans 14:3
3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

Matt 4:4

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

We really have to meditate on these things, we really must evaluate our selves and imagine how big Jah is.

Our defender of the Faith, Our Lion of Judah hailing from the seed of David, sitting on Jah earthly representation of his throne, says these words “Were the thoughts of Plato and Socrates, the beliefs of Christianity and Judaism not harmonized with Hindu philosophy; were Yoga and its various stages not exposed to Western thought; had Western religion and philosophy not been exposed to the philosophy and religion of the East through Your Excellency’s persistent endeavour” He is honoring, India’s President Radhakrishnan

Who is Radhakrishnan?

Wikipedia says:

One of India’s best and most influential twentieth-century scholars of comparative religion and philosophy (look at that, he had a common passion with Haile Selassie)

Could it be that this man who Jah honors, a man one with his light, be a disciple?

HIM+Rhadakrishnan

I am further convicted to read Radhakrishnan thoughts and philosophy and you can find it here for $3.00

http://www.amazon.com/Eastern-Religions-Western-Thought-Paperbacks/dp/0195624564/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1417936615&sr=1-3&keywords=radhakrishnan#customerReviews

There is so much to write about this Spiritual Kinsmen, another great book to read is the Mystical Journey from Jesus to Christ by Dr. Muata Ashby for he does a good job comparing the Four World Spiritual Systems

http://www.amazon.com/Mystical-Journey-Origins-Teachings-Christiani/dp/1884564054/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1417937899&sr=8-9&keywords=muata+ashby

I also give thanks to the brother Tyson Brown for his book Abba Qiddus, he shares good information about the importance of living an ascetic life which is the originally livity before bibles were created, for separating from society like Rev 18, tells InI to “come out of her” to return to our primordial state, our original way before we started putting labels on spirituality. I have experienced the product of this separation and it really influences you to get back to God. Very similar to what people call a sabbatical but for an extended amount of time.

http://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=abba+keddus&type=

This is my opinion and may not be the views of Jah but if it his will, may HE bring the evidence before your eyes. We are passed the time of Baptizing the Nations (Countries) in the name of the The Trinity, Jesus. Records show that the 12 disciples did so already. Here is a link http://www.ichthus.info/Disciples/intro.html

But the bible is also known for interpreting nations as “heathens”, and in this current time the baptizing never ceases until Shiloh come. It is our job that as sons and dawtas of Jah that we all take the responsibility in showing a heathen God through our actions and words, model the character, show him/her the word when the opportunity prevents it self in love and for the betterment. We must not repeat the mistakes of the path, we must become members of a new race; therefore, we must teach a new outlook

Haile Selassie writes:

The catastrophe which was brought about by human hands during the past years can be avoided in the future by religion and hope in God which should be in the heart of the people. And this can be achieved by education which if not borne by the youth, the effort which is made for peace will be in vain.

Haile Selassie I teaches us here, how to act.

He also says:

the spiritual conditions in which man lives, for just as a man without means to feed his hunger and to clothe his nakedness can take no pride in his existence as a human being, so, also is one who is reviled and discriminated against because of his race or religion, robbed of his self respect and human dignity.

Haile Selassie I teaches us here, how not to act.

The spectre of racial discrimination which has for so long cast its dark and evil shadow over much of this globe is slowly disappearing. Men are coming increasingly to be judged by their talents and abilities rather than by the less meaningful and far more superficial standards of race and religion. But there yet remain those who, in their bigotry and ignorance, resist this flooding tide, and it is against these that our efforts must be directed.

And in terms with Muslims, HIM said:
Both Christians and Moslems believe alike in God, spiritually, and as God is always with those who believe in Him, there is harmony in man who is one in flesh, blood and soul. Therefore, Ethi­opians are all one, and they do not differ one from the other. We are all one in Our belief in God. As We revere Him and believe in Him so do you. Christianity and Islam are not the only religions in the world; there are many different religions. However, among be­lievers, there are no differences when they serve their country, and We respect everybody’s religion without partiality.

Did We not respect the Moslem, We would not have come to this place to visit this mosque. As prayers are said in churches, the same is done in mos­ques.The house of God is open and welcomes those who come with charity. Following this principle, since as Moslems and Christians all are loyal to Ethiopia, what has just been said is not new.

It is well known that during the inva­sion of Ethiopia by the enemy, there were many Moslems and Christians who defended their country, and We rewarded them, not the Moslems or Christians only, but both.

Hence, if anybody says that differ­ences exist between Moslems and Christians, that person is an enemy of Ethiopia.

Haile Selassie I

1 week later:
I received my orderimage

This book is confirmation of who InI Kings of kings is, as well as how he speaks. Through this zeal of seeking the Kingdom of God and how all should be added unto me, in the spirit of those who seek HIM shall find HIM. In the preface of the book Radhakrishnan is where Haile Selassie I quoted him, and it is fair to say that Radhakrishnan is a son of Jah, a disciple of the Most High.

Radhakrishnan writes”……and it seems to me that in the mystic traditions of the different religions we have a remarkable unity of spirit. Whatever religions they may profess, the mystics are spiritual kinsmen. While the different religions in their historical forms bind us to limited groups and militate against the development of loyalty to the world community, the mystics have always stood for the fellowship of humanity.

He continues:
They transcend the tyranny of names and the rivalry of creeds as well as the conflict of races and the strife of nations. As the religion of spirit, mysticism avoids the two extremes of dogmatic affirmation and dogmatic denial. All signs indicate that is it likely to be the religion of the future. (Is this last sentence a prophecy?)

On page 190 he writes: When the Roman Empire became essential as its counterpart. The new unitary State required a religion of a more universal character than the polytheistic cults.

He later speaks of the appearance of other religions and their mix with Christianty, which leads into this sentence.

Isis the mother goddess, formed in Ancient Egypt one of the trinity Osiris, Isis, Horus. She was identified with many other local goddesses, Ceres, Venus, and Diana. About the period of the rise of Christianity she had become the Centre of an elaborate cult of mysticism. She reapprears in Christianity as the Virgin Mother.

This passage is a must share, for HIM Haile Selassie I is a man in Jah, Jah in man of integrity, HE will read and investigate anything before sharing it with others. Also remember that HIM was a voracious reader, meaning that HE consumed a lot of literature.

I will like to share one more excerpt that I came across in the book that had me in awe, for I am hearing the king speak through Ra’dhakrishnan. On page 172, he says

To the Jew the important question is , What am I to do? He insisted on a code of conduct. To the Eastern religions and the mystery cults, the more important question is, What am I to be? The aim is to become something different and not to do something else. Jesus is concerned, not with the wrong we do, but with the corruption of being which the wrng act is the outcome. We must become different, change our natures, be born again,

These words sound very much like Haile Selassie’s :

We must become bigger than we have been, more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.

The well-known teachings of Haile Selassie I that people seem to know the most are the gospels, His thoughts and mind is like a pill filled with the Gospels, Philosophy, History, and Unity. This is the radiance that InI King of kings gives off that I have recognized so far. Blessed is HE that comes in the name of the Lord.

If you reread what HIM says he gives Radhakrishnan great praises for his work, HE ends off the praises with the one of the greatest complements, ” He makes this age pregnant with greatness. ”

Jah Rastafari……Haile Selassie I is not only loyal to Christianity, HE is loyal to the Faith that each religion has professed. It makes clear sense on why HIM strives to unify churches and religion all over the world. We must be like HIM and unify as well. We must also transcend our differences as well and look to unify for the betterment of humanity.

I was watching a video about an issue that I was confused about, it spoke about the validity of the Hebrew Isrealites 12 Tribes Chart, and many scholary brothers provided good questions to the Isrealites about why the chart is false, and even though the discussion did not remain true to the topic, at the end of the discussion one drew the best answer to solve the confusion, and it was that we should all unite and how can we do that, without joining your camp. Many may think that proposing such an idea is a cowardly move, and that the person speaking it is throwng in the towel but it is actually the wisest thing to seek, for even n the process of creating unity we will be uniting to create a firmer bond.

Man takes ownership in their beliefs and information that they digest, so its close to impossible to sway him from what has been inspiring and guiding him through the darkest of valley’s and the steepest of hills. It’s a fear that if I deny the power that I pledge allegiance to, that I will eventually will have to find myself all over again but that concern will extinguish if we agree work with one another without the spirit of conversion.

HIM understands this, so he shows tolerance and has not come across as a KIng that forces his beliefs on everyone nor ridicules anyone elses faith, but that we must overcome our differences and work together to better humanity. I love the King for many things, and this is one of the reasons, that knowing all truth, we that believe in the Almighty draws water from the same source, its creator. Let the temple and church say A’men, to the Spirit that bares witness to it all.

In conclusion, I hope all that read this are blessed beyond measure and has some valuable information to what Qedemawi Haile Selassie has shared with the world.

img_3671286988238191~2

Ra’stafari is a blessed faith, for InI see oneness in Leornard P. Howell and Haile Selassie I. They both speak of the influence of the Eastern religion, the Hindu faith, Leonard P Howell took on the name G.G. Maragh and HIM shared this with the people when honoring Radhkrishnan

Were the thoughts of Plato and Socrates, the beliefs of Christianity and Judaism not harmonized with Hindu philosophy; were Yoga and its various stages not exposed to Western thought; had Western religion and philosophy not been exposed to the philosophy and religion of the East through Your Excellency’s persistent endeavour, how much the poorer would human thought have been!

Jah Ras Tafari Haile Selassie is that offspirng, that righteous branch spoken of in Jeremiah 23:5

the digits even testify of this truth 2 + 3 equals 5; therfore 5:5 which is the same numbers that testifys of the Root of David loosening the 7 seals as the Lion of Judah.

But you don’t have dread to be Rasta, it’s a just deep conception of the heart. Change your heart to unify and you will display a piece of Haile Selassie I.

Blessed love, may the good influence, the Most High guide us in our positive endeavours.
