This is a new painting done with Acrylic. The message is that we are the vines that climb up, each drop is a blessing coming our way. The purple represents the Holy Spirit that surrounds us all, and the pink the disintegration of the alien yellow orange obstacles. The yellow, orange obstacles are liken to the odd sea creatures in a vast underwater reality that are sometimes unpleasant. Though we are submerged, it is truly just in the Holy Spirit that envelops us all, at it has come to pass, that we may overgrow the issues that also surround us. Faith in the Holy Spirit. Hope you enjoy. Prints are available. Painting goes all 4 directions. It will be in the print section soon. Jah Bless More to Come!
Blessed Love to one and all, it has been a minute due to the immense velocity in which InI have been learning. As Spiritual people often we think we have reached the place, we have been delivered. Yet in the pursuit of further oneness, we see our deliverance is small when it comes to the power to deliver others, problem is I can’t do that..I can help. We are in a time where the true subjects of our newness to the precepts of “freedom” “unity” or “human rights”. For thousands of years these were but romantic fantasies that were utopian, the evidence is in governmental systems that intrinsically don’t want to share power. The poor are looked as wretched and carry the burdens for the rich. Still we have this dream and vision.
I took a mental and soulful trip to try and understand and inner stand more. I wanted to study the first Christians and what happened to them. It seemed that it is an understatement to say, they were all murdered, and what does that really tell me anyway. We are looking at a concept that is the fulfillment of a growth process. In the living example of Eyesus Kristos, we saw clear lines that were drawn that some compare to Buddhism because of its simplicity. But it is more, because while Wisdom (buddha) requires love to be, it doesn’t require the healing ability to send demons away. There are many that are healers and many that are wise, but none like Christ when it comes to His attack against the devil, bluntly and with sense.
After going on a mission to learn the history of the Name of Jesus all the way back through Nubia and Ethiopia, I learned that I had seen with my eyes the Father of Fathers, as promised in Mathew 5:8 and has shown InI in real time what Ethiopia was whispering to InI about thousands of years ago. That the word is alive, All words.. that they came from a root and that root knew what tree would grow. When one of the seeds flew to its original pasture the roots and garden recognized it and knew it before it was born. Like wise the name of Yeshau, (Joshua) was one that was Given to Him from the Holy One of Creation. This name is the branch from the tree that would bring forth a new flower that would be known across the Earth as Jesus. In real time, We can see in 1892 July 23rd A Child is born in which the Government would rest on His Shoulders. He would be both a PRINCE of peace and also Everlasting FATHER. When His Imperial Majesty (H.I.M.) was born His Name was Tafari Makonnen, and later Ras Tafari Makonnen. The World did call Him as Ras Tafari Makonnen, but did not know who He would be. In 1930 As His and Her Imperial Majesty were crowned, He took up the Name, ” H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I, Conquering Lion of Judah, King of Kings, Sovereign of Sovereign, Root of David, and Earth’s Rightful Ruler.” After Nov. 2nd 1930 No One internationally called HIM Ras Tafari Makonnen again. He was the resurrected Prince and Father. He did not say this of Himself, but showed it, and let others announce the He is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in Action. This is the meaning of the Name, which is the Name of God. It is “Haile” meaning “Power and virtue” and “Selassie” meaning “The Trinity”. He does not need to prove who He is, because it is self evident, He is that He is that I am that I am. If there is Truth in you, you will see it outside of you. This Name, “Haile Selassie the First” is written in the Bible, as the New Name in Revelations 3, that only He will know until that time. Haile, (Heli), is also the Grandfather of Jesus.
I am writing this, to show first like the two names Jahshua, and Jesus, both the name Ras Tafari and Haile Selassie I are similar in that one Name the whole world would know. That it was known in Ethiopia that The Name would be “Jesus” roughly, as they knew roughly when and where Christ was born. They also knew that He would come again to Ethiopia before and after the Resurrection. That is why the Lion of Judah is on the flag. When His Imperial Majesty sat on the Throne of Zion as King of Judah and Beta (house of) Israel, That was the only free African Country, Has the blood of David and the Word of God in every land that requires that all know that His Seed shall prosper and is anointed. HIM Emperor Haile Selassie I would bring the essence of Christian Values to the world stage and test every bit morale in every human then and to come. He challenged the challenger to check himself. To summon and muster the best within for the small to biggest, to the local to the foreigner, in the interest of peace, and humanity. I am not making a case for the Divinity of HIM, that not something I need to prove, what I can say is Haile Selassie I is helping InI learn more about the supernatural and extra ordinary message and movements of Jesus Christ, because it is beyond relatable. Though there are 1000′s of years between them, the experience and repercussions, the life of those who witness of HIM, and the persecution and blessing we receive, are all right there, in the Bible, and surrounding HIM.
I am learning and enjoying the Scriptures more, feeling like I can absorb the message more, now this is not a research paper, or a study of words. His Imperial Majesty is very clear, and yet so much to take in. The Words of Christ are different, they are cloaked and yet thinly veiled. The ability to see, is based on insight not eyesight. The message of non violence, of forgiveness, of justice, and truth telling. Of respecting and caring for the weak and suffering, to have compassion for the afflicted. To share all you have and be willing to give your life up for God in defense of the defenseless., to confront the wicked and tell the devil he is a liar and murderer.
On this journey, it is getting thicker. Things are speeding up, Life is getting better and harder. More than every I need peace and focus. I went to a Church yesterday, because my soul needs to see people in prayer, others who know that we have to trust Jah. The preacher was honest and meek, as were those around him. There were human without apology, and knew the difference between being human and sinking to carnal levels. Their humanity was shown in their desire to make the world a better place by loving each other with a fiery bluntness, and honesty. To yell and be loud for Jah, to surrender all in order as an offering for all that was given to us. Many of us have been voices in the wilderness, at this point I am being called to go to town.
The Tucson trip was good, and the mystics were there. The opposition popped up regularly and it seemed that we all were able to avoid any issues, using the understanding that we have to expect ones fears to invade and we will have to be aware in the best ways to create strength and encourage unity. Jah Love can move mountains. I will post some pics and an article about the Tucson trip next. For Now, this is were I am at..that no matter where I go or what I do, all things only allow InI to have more to offer Jah, and the movement of Rastafari. Really looking forward to sharing the new art, all of which are part of the process of Growth. Hope your experiencing a rising your self, we need it, all of us. Renewal and Resurrection time. Spread Life.
Give thanks for the Love and Mercy of the Almighty One, whom watches InI’s and protects Us. Give thanks for being able to be called by His Name, and In His Name let Us Be Joyful, for He is Jah. Deliverer and Guide, Strength and only Law. Holy of Holies, Living God, and Everlasting Father. Holy Emmanuel I King Selassie I Jah, Rastafari. In the Name of the Father, The Son, and Holy Spirit. One God. Amen.
Melkam Genna for all those who are celebrating the Orthodox Christian Christmas. We give thanks for the Birth of Eyesus Krestos and the Holy Fulfillment of Jah in Flesh. We have seen it many times, and because of the Power of Haile Selassie I, for I personally, The Scriptures has had more than relevance but foreseen answers and results. It depends how the Spirit speaks to your soul at the time. Having a personal relationship with the Creator is one where He doesn’t just always reveal the Book. He loosens it, and it is up to us see the seals. The fantastic journey into Coptic and Orthodox Christianity as a whole has brought many blessings and insights. Part of that is knowledge of the Saints and Martyrs, many of whom are living out the old battles of non violence and humility that we can see today. To show the mystics of the ages who lived in Africa is helpful in many ways…more than InI could say,..so Working with some wonderful people, including Tekle Selassie, and GebreSelassie Tafari, and Ras Teo Hartoonian, whom all played a hand that planted the seed to attempt to make a comic line that could involve young people in the Ethiopian Orthodx Church and other Churches that have the same Saints and Martyrs internationally. To build ties and congregations while involving youth on a Christian artistic collaborations that celebrates the Great teachers and examples of the Faith. By working together, we can create more issues that can be as expansive as a group decides. We have the script written for this issue and I will happily send to anyone who can correct or advise of the scripting of Holy Saint Gebre Menfes Qeddus. Right now it has been sent to a deacon to be looked at, and Jah Willing Blessed in time. Likewise we are able to use the pencils and to be shared with whomever to practice and submit so we can build a Christian Comic Collaboration. This issue, the pencils are finished and anyone who wants to ink or give a young person a story to ink is welcome to email or inbox InI, Lionartproductions@gmail.com to get a high quality scan that can be inked right away. We would like to see the Comic reach as many Orthodox Churches and Communities as well, inside the comic will be a proposal for efforts to unify in multiple manners. This book about the Holy Saint, Abune Gebre Menfes Qeddus is only 8 pages in total (that includes the cover ect..), So we can make it low cost and share and send it out as an example. I would like to have a crew and Churches who are willing to collaborate on a full length black and white comic about Moses the Ethiopian, where we can include as many congregations as possible in the creation process. This can be more than a Sunday School exercise, it can be a form of witnessing and engaging in a new way consistently. I will be happy to speak about workshops and more details for those who would like to be involved. To Celebrate this Day, and honor The Holy Spirit that has brought us to the Truth and Mercy of Eyesus Krestos, This is also the day of the Birth of Gebre Menfes Qeddus, 868 Ethiopian Calendar. I look forward to seeing who responds and can see the need for creative people in every element of publishing. Young and Old. Those who love letters, we need letterers, those who love to ink, we need ya, I would like to form a core crew that can make history and new artistic ways that will venerate Righteousness, human rights and Pan African Ideology. This is the beginning and there are many projects and inspirations to arrive. Please forward this to your local ( most likely Orthodox) Church to see if they would like to be involved, though anyone is welcome in the Spirit of Eyesus Krestos. Jah Bless you all. In the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, One God. Haile Selassie I, Jah Rastafari.

Here’s a sneak peak at a piece that I’m finishing up this morning before InI Head forward…
More Powers. LIONART ON THE WAY.
What a Joyful Meditation it is to think of Emperor Haile Selassie I. This painting spoke to who His Imperial Majesty is to INI, because it is of HIM alone holding His Royal Umbrella. In a Fatherly walk He approaches, where the Heaven and Earth are indistinguishable. Water and Rain everywhere and it looks at first He walks on water, which we all do when He rains.
The Umbrella is special for many reasons, including it represents the Heavens protection and His Imperial Position, usually a Head of State and certainly the Emperor has a trusted one hold his Umbrella, and this was a rare photo that was used. The Rasta-Man aka Priest and Prophet, ( the trusted ones) holds the umbrella as do they crown the King, for no King can Crown Himself. This Great King, can carry His Own Umbrella, He is all of Man’s history and future walking towards you. An Emperor who doesn’t believe in classism, and is joyful carrying the weight as Earth’s Rightful Ruler. Walking in way that reminds I of any good father, with the confidence that He was sent to help Us weather the storm. Thank You Jah for watching out for us, and walking with us, as One of Us.
“Jah’s Umbrella.” Acrylic and Indian Ink.
