Biblical Reasonings based on The Teaching of Qedamawi Haile Sellassie
Shalom to One and All in the Name of Iyesus Kristos to the Glory of His Majesty Haile Sellassie I!
In the following article, RasTafari Talmud will present indisputable evidence concerning the Order of the Flag of The Conquering Lion of The Tribe of Judah, Qedamawi Haile Selassie, Elect of The Sustainer, King of Kings of Ethiopia. Although, the following summary is by no means an exhaustive study, it is intended for the progress of education and practical application in honoring Our GOD-Father and King. Prepared in consideration of our brothers and sisters who recognize and receive the Revelation of the New Name RasTafari (Isaiah 62:2, Revelation 2:17, 3:12)/our kindred among ethnically “black” Israel scattered to the 4 Corners of the Earth (Isaiah 11:12)/ as well as all of the families of humanity in Christ (Romans 3:22), we hope that it will serve to edify and to promote further personal research as to the material presented.
Prior to proceeding it must be noted that, in times past, the author has, ignorantly, struggled as to the importance of the matter of our flag. Nonetheless, we are grateful that by the Grace of YHWH we are able to share this significant insight as it is an integral component to properly stand, both in Spirit and in Truth, according to the Order of Melchizedek (The Everlasting Priesthood of our Lord and High Priest Iyesus Kristos/ It would serve us well to recall the admonition given to us in Torah concerning Korah’s Rebellion [See Numbers 16: 1-35]).
First, for the record, we are able to refer to the 1955 Revised Constitution of the Empire Ethiopia promulgated by His Imperial Majesty Haile Sellassie I. Under General Provisions/Chapter 8 of the document it is clearly stated in Article 124: The Flag of the Empire consists of three horizontal bands, the uppermast green, the middle yellow and the nethermost red, in such details as determined by law.
When we, as RasTafari/Ethiopian Hebrew/Professing Christian people actually recognize the true facts of Our Divine Heritage and Our Sovereign Qedamawi Haile Sellassie upon the Throne of Great King David, realizing the implications thereof, it becomes quite natural to accept the responsibility of our roles as Faithful Subjects under The Crown of The Solomonic Dynasty established in Imperial Ethiopia. Thus, giving due diligence into contemplating the matter of our rightful Status (granted by Our Sovereign) and Nationality, it becomes self-evident that any attempt in misrepresenting the correct Order of the Flag can be only attributed to either mere immaturity or outright rebellion against His Majesty The King of Kings and HIS Christ Iyesus (Our Sovereign: This point must be contemplated by each individual to accept or reject; as it is unlawful for any person to refute the Constitution of the Nation [Kingdom or Empire], He or She pledges allegiance to).
Ecclesiastes 10:20 Revile not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter. (See also Kebra Negast Chapter 44)
Furthermore, when considering the practical application we should invest time towards attaining a working reference of knowledge as to what a flag actually is and how to function under a flag. A detailed summary on this subject matter is beyond the scope of this article, as we, ourselves, are currently actively engaged in this study. It is our sincere hope that by citing the following definition from the Black’s Law Dictionary many more brothers and sisters will become motivated to investigate this inevitable area of inquiry. [(Flag, law of.) In maritime law, the law of that nation or country whose flag is flown by a particular vessel. A shipowner who sends his vessel into a foreign port gives notice by his flag to all who enter into contracts with the master that he intends the law of that flag to regulate such contracts, and that they must either submit to its operation or not contract with him. Black’s Law Dictionary 6th Edition Black, Henry Campbell, 1990, West Publishing Company]
Below are pdf versions of the Redemption Manual and Blacks Law Dictionary 6th; for those whom may feel inspired in seeking out the matter. Note: The Redemption Manual study, for purposes of our practical application, must be placed in context of The 1955 Revised Constitution of the Empire of Ethiopia (pdf link below), lest we find ourselves in same the predicament as the author of the work, whom recognizing the inherent truth and reality of The Kingdom of Christ, continues to struggle with recognizing the Sovereign (Qedamawi Haile Sellassie, The King of Kings in Christ) from which all authority is derived. In addition, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (pdf link below) is a working instrument which sets forth the framework, concerning operative principles (especially in regards to Nationality (Article 15) and Religion (Article 18), which the United Nations is obligated by contract to uphold.)
Our second point of contending is concerned with accurately accounting for the historical fulfillment regarding the establishment of the Kingdom of YAH (See Isaiah 11), on earth, under the Flag of the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, according to Biblical Prophecy (Numbers 2:9/Psalm 60:4/Isaiah 5:26; 11:10;-12; 18:3; 30:17; 31:9/Zechariah 9:16). Due to faulty hermeneutics and a deficient understanding of the Holy Trinity, on behalf of certain bibliolaters, many have been diverted from considering the 2nd Advent of Christ in the Person of His Majesty Qedamawi Haile Sellassie, especially within the context of Isaiah 9:7 (Compare Revelation 19:11-16). By recognizing the Authority of His Majesty (See 1 Corinthians 15:24) the 1st advent of Christ in the Person of Iyesus Kristos The Son, as suffering for the sake of our salvation, may be clearly distinguished from the 2nd advent in Glory, throughout the typical patterns found in Torah and the visions contained in the reading of the Prophets. This may be better comprehended when we are able to recognize that “the Person” of Christ is in reference to the earthly incarnation/”advent” of Spirit in the Flesh, while the Presence (Panyim/פָּנִים) is to perceive the Presence of Spirit within the incarnate Person. As a matter of fact, we beseech the reader to re-examine the entirety of The Bible from this perspective.
In continuing, the Emblem on the Flag of the Conquering Lion of the Tribe Judah carrying the Cross of Christ as well as Wearing the Crown of Christ leaves no room for doubt that our Empire is constituted within the Word Covenant (Qal Kidan/ቃል ኪዳን) contained within the Holy Bible. (Also carefully consider Article 6 of The 1955 Revised Constitution of The Empire of Ethiopia) HalleluYAH!!! Moreover, the utterances of His Majesty fully support this proclamation. (Please refer to Haile Selassie I Christmas Interview with Dr. Oswald Hoffman Dec 25, 1968 https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Haile_Selassie_Christmas_Interview_with_Dr._Oswald_Hoffman) Although, we will admit that the false doctrine of “another Iyesus” i.e. Caesar Borgias (See 2 Corinthians 11:4/2 Thessalonians 2:3/Matthew 24:15/Mark 13:14) may cause many of our potential brothers and sisters, whom have taken the namesake of RasTafari, to even deny Christ, as the author has done in times past. Be that as it may, we beg such ones to diligently seek and consider the claims of the King of Kings Qedamawi Haile Sellassie and freely receive of the abiding shalom gifted to us by The Father for accepting salvation in His Son, regardless of circumstances we may encounter in life. For ones that wish to remain stiff-necked and continue in falsely representing the Teaching of His Majesty and The Name (HaShem/השם) of YHWH/Our Father we give an open rebuke and warning of being in jeopardy of treason. The Words of the Decalogue (Deuteronomy 5:11) plainly states “Thou shalt not take The Name of YHWH thy Sustainer in vain: for YHWH will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.” Furthermore, Revelation 22:18-19, states “For I testify to every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add to these things, The Sustainer shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, The Sustainer shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”
In concluding, we would like to share a great audio/visual inspiration (His Majesty’s return to the battlefield prior the expulsion of alien oppression and the testimony Our Loyal Imperial Ethiopian Christian Patriots and those who gave their lives against the fascist Italian invasion) to encourage our family, in the Kingdom of Christ without borders (Psalm 24:1), to firmly stand in our Divine Heritage and Living Faith. The audience’s attention should be directed to The Address of Ras Abebe Aregai to the Patriots, in that the Nazarite Vow (Numbers 6: NOTE The nazarite vow forbids contact with a dead soul [nephesh/נֶפֶשׁ] not flesh [bashar/בָּשָׂר]) is reflected as Ras Abebe rallies the troop by stating “That long hair on your heads is the badge of the Arbegna (Patriots) The Ethiopian Guerrilla Fighter. It is the outward sign of your form as a regular soldier.” In addition, consideration should be given to the resonance of Ras Abebe Aregai’s declaration to His Majesty upon arrival in Addis Ababa as he testifies “Your Majesty, I never hoped to see the sight of your face again, in Ethiopia. I never dreamed I would once more be happy. I was only determined to fight until I died for Our independence, for Our flag, for Our Christian Religion, and for you My King“; in relation to the Aaronic Priestly blessing (Numbers 6:24-26 “YHWH bless thee, and keep thee: make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious to thee: YHWH lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee Shalom!”).
