We are in a remarkable time, and at this moment where many in the World celebrate the Resurrection of Christ let us share the continuation of the Glory of God through the personality of Emperor Haile Selassie I Resurrected and the fulfillment of Christ, the Prophet John of Revelations, Enoch and Ezekiel.
I will be showing the links of collective and spiritual importance of The Emperor’s impression on the nature of Resurrection. In The King of Kings We can see the resurrection of Africa, of Freedom and Self Determination for 100′s of millions that had been deprived by colonial powers. We see publicly His Resurrection on the Throne, Where He is given a New Name; as well as Empress Menen Coronated at the same time which had never happen. He is the resurrection of the African Male Female and Child adoration through the act of the Coronation of 1930. The capital Addis Abba, meaning “New Flower” being where 72 nations where called to witness the Crowning of the King of Kings, and where Organization of African Unity would set up as the first body to create Independent African Nations. It was erected and was to resurrect others nations from the yoke of foreign minority rule. Lets go back though, to the 30′s..
From the late 1930′s The Earth saw the Emergence of Ethiopia upon the World Stage and the only Free African Nation Internationally lead by Emperor Haile Selassie I. Later betrayed as the League of Nations allowed the dropping of Poison Gas on the oldest Christian Nation by Roman and Italian forces member to the League. This dismemberment and crucifixion would echo as Christ and Osiris were betrayed, and then sent to the slaughter. His Imperial Majesty would show that unlike Christ and more like King David, fighting against extreme odds is the way to leave a lasting memory and testimony to history and self in Ones faith in God. Still the results for Ethiopia and The King of Kings were the same, His Imperial Majesty would suffer burns in His Hands from the Roman Bombs, The modern nail, Chemical weapon called Mustard Gas. Ethiopia would suffer terribly.
His Imperial Majesty would start His Exile in Jerusalem in which is liken to the Death of Christ. His Majesty’s exile began on the 5/5/36 and would last until 5/5/41 exactly 5 Years . And as Christ died for the sins of the World, The Conquering Lion of Judah, Haile Selassie the First would go to where Christ was murdered and join the Ethiopian Monks at the Holy Sepulcher. In the eyes of the World, Haile Selassie was often reported dead, and see as a “King without a Kingdom” and that He and His People would pay for the lack of moral action by the World. In the issue of the American Magazine Liberty as well as Newsweek ( couldn’t find the magazine online) it was written that they did not know if the Emperor was alive when the article was published. Mystically that one of The Root of David on a white horse.
There in Jerusalem He and the Monks by moonlight would enact the Resurrection of Christ. In what is described as strange, The King and Ethiopian Monks would search for The Body of Christ to find HIM risen in the morning. They would enact the Resurrection, using the instruments of Ancient Egypt to ward off evil. This can be read in this article by H.V. Morton.
“If It’s God’s Will..Then I shall some day once again sit upon the Throne of Solomon.” One may think these were words of Christ spoken in Jerusalem, however they are of the Conquering Lion of Judah, Haile Selassie I in 1936 in Jerusalem. Up until 1930 most people in the world neither had the ability nor desire to know about Africa, In this remarkable moment of the printing press, radio and film, for the first time ever, people were being introduced to Ethiopia through the Emperor, who stood for justice and Christ and was persecuted on the world stage. Tragically the World would pay for betraying HIM and God at once through WW2 which would be the result of lack of accountability, prejudice and appeasement by Global leaders. At the same time, Haile Selassie I would show them by faith, courage and action that Christ and God are real.
Here is some examples of the cartoons of the time…
He would also be a sore reminder to this day..
“Even in the 20th Century, With Faith Courage and Just cause, David will still beat Goliath.” Emperor Haile Selassie Upon arriving at His Palace.
Five years later, Ethiopia Regains Her Throne and King. For the first time in history an acting Head and King of State is back in Power. His Imperial Majesty now in His Rightful Seat watches as the world goes into world war. Bringing to fruit and warning to bear for the Earth to feel, “it is Us today, it will be you tomorrow.” The League of Nations is meaningless and His Imperial Majesty starts to look at a new endeavor. Presented in 1936 to the League of Nations He expressed the need to end Superiority complexes. This will lead to the founding of the United Nations and the unified actions to rid others of colonial invasion future and past. ” Apart from the Kingdom of the Lord there is not on this earth any nation that is superior to any other. Should it happen that a strong Government finds it may with impunity destroy a weak people, then the hour strikes for that weak people to appeal to the League of Nations to give its judgment in all freedom. God and history will remember your judgment.” HIM Haile Selassie I at the League of Nations 1936
It was remembered and a new day was announced. One in which the resurrection of a people collectively and personally are one. This movement would spread across the Earth freeing many nations throughout Asia and Africa from European Oppression.
Excerpt from H.I.M. Haile Selassie I speech on entering Addis Ababa on May 5, 1941:
“No words of thanks spoken by human tongue are sufficient for that the good God has vouchsafed me this day to be in your midst, a thing that could be known or conceived neither by the angels of heaven nor by the hosts of earth. What I want to tell you all and to convey to you before everything, is that this day is the opening of a new era of history for a new Ethiopia: and in this new era there will begin a new task which it will be for all of us to perform. . . .People of my country Ethiopia,This is a day when Ethiopia, stretching forth her hands to God in Jubilation, presents her thanks and declares her joy to her children. This is the day in which the children of Ethiopia are liberated from the grievous yoke of the foreigner and from eternal slavery; it is the day when we are vouchsafed to be reunited, after a full five years of separation, with our beloved and longed-for people; therefore this day is honored and sanctified, and one on which there shall be held every year a great Ethiopian holiday. On this day we shall call to mind our heroes who shed their blood and shattered their bones in sacrifice, refusing to betray the strict trust passed on to them from their fathers – the freedom of the country they loved, and the honour of their Emperor and their flag. The history of Ethiopia shall be a witness for these our heroes. If we are to learn from the sufferings and agonies we have experienced in the past five years – endless to relate and to reckon in detail – the principle lesson to be drawn is that you should have inscribed in your hearts industry, unity, fellowship and love, that you may be helpers in our plans for Ethiopia. Hencefoth in the new Ethiopia we want you to be a people undivided, who have freedom and equality before the law.”
In 1958 Africa Independence day was established at the first African Independent States Conference. The Emperor in 1963 said on Africa day, APRIL 15th the following excerpt.
“For several years in the past, as must be remembered, a large part of the African continent was under colonial rule. In the course of that time, colonialists have stripped the Africans of their freedom and natural rights, and used their resources for the benefit and prosperity of their own country. Even today, colonial masters speak ill of Africans by exaggerating their poverty in the press. Africans are also blamed for the aid they receive. This aid cannot fill the needs of their peoples overnight. From under such humiliation, Africans rose up to safeguard their right and started to struggle to obtain their independence. This struggle began to bear fruit after World War II. The first African Independent States Conference was held in Africa in 1958. The independent states at that time were only eight. Nevertheless, the freedom fight in Africa continued with more vigour and fervour and today the number of independent states has reached 32. This is four times the size of those independent countries which participated in the Accra Conference. Last year alone Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and Algeria achieved their independence and became members of the Independent African states. Although it had been duly extended at the appropriate time, we will again venture to express our congratulations to these friendly countries.”
In 1963 The Organization for African Unity was formed and head quartered in Addis Abba. By this point, His Imperial Majesty had already founded globally the United Nations. He would speak on the importance of Equal representation and the end of racism and superiority complexes. This was a resurrection of The Word, and the World. For an ideal that had not be defended and would represent the future of peace and security. Coming from an Emperor, Head of all Abrahamic Faiths and Masonry by protocol, the end of classism, injustice and superiority complexes. Once again Haile Selassie I was ahead of His Time and willing to fight against those who had stood in the way of independence. He was the first to address and arm The People of the Congo, and South African Freedom Fighters and many others.
He spoke of the identity of Us as a people today and tomorrow. A people reborn. He would continue to free people to this day. Emperor Haile Selassie I reminds us where we come from and where to go after being left in the desert, and left to die, a now born again.
“It is no less important that we know whence we came. An awareness of our past is essential to the establishment our personality and our identity as Africans. This world was not crested piecemeal. Africa was born no later and no earlier than any other geographical area on this globe. Africans, no more and no less than other men, possess all human attributes, talents and deficiencies, virtues and faults. Thousands of years ago, civilizations flourished in Africa which suffer not at all by comparison with those of other continents. In those centuries, Africans were politically free and economically independent. Their social patterns were their own and their cultures truly indigenous.
The obscurity which enshrouds the centuries which elapsed beteeen those earliest days and the rediscovery of Africa is being gradually dispersed. What is certain is that during those long years Africans were born, lived and died. Men on other parts of this earth occupied themselves with their own concerns and, in their conceit, proclaimed that the world began and ended at their horizons. All unknown to them, Africa developed in its own pattern, growing in its own life and, in the Nineteenth Century, finally re-emerged into the world’s consciousness. The events of the past hundred and fifty years require no extended recitation from us. The period of colonialism into which we were plunged culminated with our continent fettered and bound; with our once proud and free peoples reduced to humiliation and slavery; with Africans terrain cross-hatched and checker – boarded by artificial and arbitrary boundaries Many of us, during those bitter years were overwhelmed in battle, and those who escaped conquest did so at the costs of desperate resistance and bloodshed. Others were sold into bondage as the price extracted by the colonialists for the ‘protection’ which they extended and the possessions of which they disposed. Africa was a physical resource to be exploited and Africans were chattels to be purchased bodily or, at best, peoples to be reduced to vasselage and lackeyhood. Africa was the market for the produce of other nations and the source of the raw materials with which their factories were fed.
Today, Africa has emerged from this dark passage, Our Armageddon is past. Africa has been reborn as a free continent and Africans have been reborn as free men. The blood that was shed and the sufferings that were endured are today Africa’s advocates for freedom and unity. Those men who refused to accept the judgement passed upon them by the colonisers, who held unswervingly through the darkest hours to a vision of an African 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 our freedom and human dignity and of how little value life is without them. Their deeds are witten in history.”
To this day Africa becomes a United Nation inside and outside the continent, finding our friends in those who share the same values of respect and integrity. Building publicly and privately and as His Imperial Majesty or Christ, we are asked to look at where ones allegiance resides, not the color of their skin. Making the defense of Human Rights His Mantle, The message of Freedom and Liberty brought inspiration and Law that would be the highest in the land, known as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Collectively written, collectively imposed to be collectively safeguarded. He resurrected all of us by acknowledging we are one body and that the mechanisms of peace are the organs for a healthy system. In a modern world He complimented his advances with Ancient wisdom and vision, inviting all to share and see.
Emperor Haile Selassie I, The Conquering Lion was like a ghost of the past, Returned to haunt the conscious of the world..”
On this day 59 years ago, Africa Independence Day was established right before the Western Judea Christian Easter celebrating the resurrection of Christ. Interesting.. With that known by HIM, When I See the Resurrection of the Lamb as prophecies to be in marriage and spiritual Oneness as the Conquering Lion of Judah, declared Worthy to be Praised by Merit Globally and freeing the masses through confidence in Moral Justice,.. I see the ripple in the time. I also hope that one day the Life and Times of His Imperial Majesty can rightly be taught into the international historical psyche, being the Inspiration and Guide to so many that are known to be inspirational. His influence on so many needs to noted, for even His Inspiration has created Heads of State. (Jomo Kenyatta, Kwane Nkrumah, JFK are just a few) and how will His Inspiration, His Spirit inspire you or the future generations? It can only be seen when they are shown truly of who Emperor Haile Selassie I is.
In the Rastafari Trod there is a call for Redemption, and Repatriation. This is part of Resurrection. The giving of Oneself to being the embodiment of the Highest thoughts is to become them. With the thoughts and actions of the King in Mind, the Balance of Christ and Haile Selassie I usher in the time and place for self defense and cooperation, of Judgement and Mercy. His teachings are the Crown of God given to the people to take care of. These teachings include the importance to immediately hault Nuclear testing and weapons development. We are in a interesting time.
In closing, the so-called death of HIM will not be discussed. Because there is no evidence of death, particularly of the Soul. In the specifics of His Majesties Physical Body there is no evidence that has been presented and its all therefore speculation. This subject of His sightings and such are for each person to consider and also whether it carries as much importance to what His Imperial Majesty did. We know HIM as the bridge of Heaven and Earth. That He is the finale evidence that We are with God and the Books are there for all to read and to theologically figure out if they have been completed by Haile Selassie I. Most Importantly, This is about Resurrection, which is about submitting so one can be reborn. His Imperial Majesty does not replace who we were, He renews us so that we can be more than we think we could be. On this day we give thanks for the Blessing of rising from the death and seeing the resurrection of Africa, the World and ourselves. In this journey our rising is our surviving. We are in a time of new beginnings, let the Wisdom of the Emperor Guide us to Eternal Truth and Life.
The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. John 12:23-25
“This then, is the ultimate challenge. Where are we to look for our survival, for the answers to the questions which have never before been posed? We must look, first, to the Almighty God, Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason. We must put our faith in Him, that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image.
And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us.
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.”
Haile Selassie I
4 October 1963
United Nations, New York.
In the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. One Jah. Haile Selassie I.
Forward Ever. Give thanks for the Rising.
