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.”
(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.
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.
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.
(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
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.
