Biblical Reasonings based on The Teaching of Qedamawi Haile Sellassie
“Reggae is a vehicle that is used to transmit a message of Redemption to the people on earth today. We use it for that…because I don’t see no other music that can carry the message as good as that. Reggae is a heavy duty machine” Berhane Selassie “Light of The Trinity” a.k.a. Bob Marley. (Rastafari YoAsaph)
Keeping It Levitical?!
The two Books of Chronicles form a Pattern of the Temple and it’s Priesthood, in The House of David of The Tribe of Judah, as Guardians of the Temple, with references to the other tribes, and with some connected material. “Know ye not….?!”
1 Chronicles 25 | Commentary:
COMMANDERS OF THE ARMY: Interestingly, the Priests and Levites here are designated by a military term: they are, in effect, the “Rulers”/(Sarim: Exodus 18:19-26) of The LORD’s “host” or armies (Tsabaot). In other words, they are “warring the warfare” of the Temple! Just as the whole nation of Israel is organized into the semblance of an elaborate military encampment in the wilderness; the Tabernacle [where the Glory of YHWH (“The LORD”) dwelt in their midst] is the “campaign headquarters.”
This figure of speech — of the worship and service of being of a military order — is also prominent in the New Testament, where for example Paul charges Timothy: “I give you this Charge in guarding the Prophecy committed… “(1 Timothy 1:18/See 1 Timothy 6:14-15). Paul also admonishes the brethren at Corinth: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through Elohim to the pulling down of strong holds. (2 Corithians 10:3,4/ NOTE: Self & Community Defense is NOT prohibited: See Romans 12:18). In fact, we can find many examples where Paul likens the Faithful to soldiers, fully equipped and armed to fight The Battle of Faith (Ephesians 6:11-17). And thereby the nature of struggle in the enterprise of the Anointed Life is underlined: those who follow the Way, Truth & Life in the Messiah are engaged in a fight to the death against wretchedness, both within and without.
“So people still searching for this truth here, which this Reggae music you know, bring cross to them. And the only purpose it serve is to tell the people about Rastafari.”
THE MINISTRY OF PROPHESYING, ACCOMPANIED BY HARPS, LYRES, AND DRUMS: The Bible proves conclusively that music is a fit medium for teaching! This ordering of the singers must have pleased David, the sweet psalmist of Israel (2 Samuel 23:1). It was part of Israel’s service to YWHW Elohim. Today, we are able to the Glorify of the Father, in the Faith of “Christ Jesus” (The Messiah Yeshua) expressing in song Spirit & Truth. MUSIC FOR THE LORD/Let This Mind BE IN YOU: “Let the Word of The Messiah dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to YHWH.” (Colossians 3:16).
Slackness in Reggae: This disease is infecting not only Black Israel but is a PLAGUE that spreading throughout the Earth. Is this not evident? For example, read & think about Exodus 32: 17-18 & Numbers 25: 1-9. 24,000 Fell!! Expressing the experience of life between UpRight Man & Wife, is not without it’s proper place (i.e. the plain reading of Song of Songs). However, our singing should not be misused to promote unrestrained reckless behavior (See JAH Law :Ten Words ONE COMMAND) Does this type of conduct lead in sequence to evil? Use reasoning & judge for thyself.
Exodus 32:25 “ And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked to their shame among their enemies:)”
Ya’ll Singers have the responsibility in serving to Raise UP the Tribes of Black Jacob, restore the preserved of Black Israel & to be a light to the Gentiles/Nations & be for JAH Salvation to the ends of the earth! (Isaiah 49:6)! Ya’ll F.U.C.King up. Ya’ll wish to persist in disobedience & not serve JAH?! The Judgement is Written!!! ProVERBs 26:2 “As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.”
“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Qedamawi Haile Sellassie, Elect of YHWH, King of Kings of Ethiopia.
Our thoughts & prayers be with Anthony Cruz. May JAH strengthen in this trying time & justice be given. JAH guide, protect & prospect thy works! Salute to all the Reggae Artist [Soldiers in JAH Army] Faithful & True to the Music of the King of Kings Qedamawi Haile Selassie! Shalom Rastafari!
