His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I
One of the objectives of Rastafarianism is to
preach the divinity of Rastafari =
Selassie I
as the 225th rebirth of King
Solomon, son of David as
"The Christ" , "The
Messiah", "The Anointed One".  Representing

Yahweh Elohim Sabboath
; The God of all
ages; Greater David Greater Son.
The Anointment of David by the prophet Samuel (1 Samuel 16 v13):  "Then Samuel took the horn of oil
and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the spirit of Elohim came upon David from that day

The spirit that came upon David represents the "Word", the indwelling speech identified by
St. John 1 v14,
"And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his Glory of the only begotten of the
Father full of grace and truth.".

The Ancient Rites of Anointment represents the Divine entry point of the indwelling speech.  "The Word:
Sound: Energy invisible to man made visible through the Son of man, 'David'".

The Anointment of King Solomon by Zadok the High Priest (1 King 1 v39): "And Zadok the Priest took
the horn of oil out of the tabernacle and Anointed Solomon; and they blew the trumpet and all the people
said 'God save King Solomon'. (
1 Chronicles 29 v22) "...And they made Solomon the son of King David, King
the second time and Anointed him unto the Elohim to be the Chief Governor and Zadok to be the Priest."

"The Word became flesh and dwelt amongst man.  Solomon becoming "The Christ", "The Messiah", "The
Anointed One", the Visible representative of Yahweh Elohim Sabboath through the Ancient Rites of
Anointment (Baptism).

King Solomon meeting the Queen of Sheba as identified by (1 King 10 v1-2 & 13):  "... and when she was
come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart."  "And
King Solomon gave unto the
Queen of Sheba
all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which Solomon gave her of his royal
bounty."  This union produced a son who's name was
Prince Menelik, before the advent of Jesus The Christ.

When Prince Menelik reached the age of twenty-one (21) he was sent to Jerusalem by his mother Queen of
Sheba to his Father, Solomon, "The Christ" to receive the Ancient Rites of Anointment so as to allow the
Christ Lineage to be established in Ethiopia, fulfilling (
Psalm 87 v3-4).  Behold the future Godhead which
would fulfill (
Amos 9 v11), "In that day will I raise up The Tabernacle of David that is fallen...".

This fulfillment allowed Prince Menelik to fulfill the New Covenant (
Hebrew 8 v8), "...Behold, the days come,
said the Elohim, when I will make a New Covenant with the house of
Israel and with the house of Judah."

The Ancient rites of Anointment performed on Jesus The Christ when his mother Mary took him to the
Temple to present Him, Jesus, to the Elohim (
St. Luke 2 v23, 25, 28, 34).  Simeon the prophet and Anna the
prophetess identified Jesus as the "Christ" through the Ancient Rites of Anointment, which was performed on
him in the Temple by the High Priest.

The Ancient Rites of Baptism and anointment performed on the Eunuch by Philip established the Eunuch as
"The Christ, The Messiah, The Anointed One".  Visible representative of Yahweh Elohim Sabboath.

The Ethiopian Eunuch met the Prophet Philip on the road to Gaza (
Acts 8 v38), "...and they went down both
into the water, both Philip and the Eunuch; and he Baptized (Anointed) him.".

The Ancient Rites of Anointment performed by Abuna Krilos (The Prophet Samuel returned) 2nd
November 1930 on the person of Rastafari.  Transfigurated the person to the Eternal
Godhead Haile
Selassie I "'Might of the Trinity'; The Christ; The Messiah; The Anointed One", who has returned to
reign as The Lion of the Tribe of Judah; The Root and offspring of King David", fulfilling
Revelation 5

"The Lion of Judah has prevailed to open the book and read therein" (
Jeremiah 23 v5-6):  "Behold, the
days come, said the Elohim that I will raise unto David a Righteous Branch, and a King will reign and prosper,
and shall execute Judgement and Justice in the earth."  (
Zechariah 12 v8), " that day shall be as David; and
the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Elohim before them.".  The fulfillment of (
Isaiah 43
), "Thus said the Elohim, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon and
brought down all their nobles...".

Haile Selassie I, 1936 leaving Ethiopia for Europe and Geneva, and the League of Nations, fulfilled this
prophecy of Isaiah, when the King prophecy against the democracy of Europe and predicted the 2nd World
War.  This fulfillment established Emperor Haile Selassie I as the Prophet.

(Deuteronomy 18 v15): "The Elohim thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy
Brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken."

Isaiah 9 v6-7:  "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be upon his
shoulders, his name will be called Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, and the
Prince of Peace."
Emperor Haile Selassie I as the Prince of Peace, forgave the Italian soldiers who were prisoners of war, after
the surrender the Italians May 5th, 1941 in Addis Ababa Ethiopia.  JAH Rastafari. Amen.

The Baptism of the Rastafarians and persons who accept The Christ, The Messiah, The Anointed One in the
person of Emperor Haile Selassie I.  At the Baptism, the Anointment Rites, let that person become one with
His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I, fulfilling
St. John 17 v21, "That they all may be one; as thou
Father is in I, and I in thee, that they also may be one in Us...".
Haile Selassie I Liveth!
Amen. Amen. Amen.
Joshua 1 v1-9: Joshua, "The Christ", captain over the house of Israel: neither be thou dismayed for the
Elohim thy God is with thee wheresoever thou goes."
Comments:  The history of Joshua's leadership over the Israelites established him as The Christ.

Judges 13 v2-3: Samson, "The Christ" of his era:  "And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of
Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.  And the angel of the Elohim
appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren and bare not, but thou shall
conceive and bear a son.  For, lo, thou shall conceive and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head, for
the child shall be a Nazarite unto Yahweh Elohim Sabboath from the womb, he shall deliver Israel out of the
hands of the Philistines."  Rastalogy accepted the birth of Samson as the Christ who came to destroy the
Philistines rule over Israel, compatible to Jesus The Christ struggle against Roman rule in Christ's time in

1 Samuel 10 v1: Rastalogy identifies Saul's Christship as Captainship over Israel:  "Then Samuel took a
vial of oil, and poured upon Saul's head, and kissed him, and said, 'Is it not because the Lord had anointed
thee to be captain over his inheritance?''"

1 Samuel 10 v6-7:  "And the spirit of the Lord will come upon thee, and thou shall prophesy with them, and
shall be turned into another man.  And let it be, when these signs are come unto thee, that thou do as
occasion serve thee; for God is with thee."
Rastalogical Finding Dealing With Samuel Reproves Saul
Elohim, thy God, which he commanded thee, for now would the Elohim establish thy kingdom upon Israel   
"And Samuel said to Saul, Thou has done foolishly, thou has not kept the commandment of forever.  But now
thy kingdom shall not continue, the Elohim had sought him a man after his own heart, and the Elohim had
commanded him to be Captain over his people, because thou has not kept that which the Elohim
commanded thee."

Rastalogy identifies this judgement as the end of King Saul Christship and rejection of Yahweh Elohim

David is chosen and Anointed as "The Christ and King" over Israel and established the Hereditary Divine
Kingship through Genetics (Genes).

1 Samuel 16 v11:  "And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are these all thy Sons, and he said there remained the
youngest and behold he keeps the sheep, and Samuel replied unto Jesse, Send and fetch him."
Rastalogical finding on Prince Menelik "The Christ" of Ethiopia, Son of King Solomon of Jerusalem.
1 King 10 v1-3:  "And when the Queen of Sheba heard of the fame of King Solomon concerning the name of
the Elohim, she came to prove him with hard questions."  "And Solomon told her all her questions, there was
not anything hidden from the King, which he told her not."

1 King 10 v9:  The Queen said "Blessed be Lord thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the Throne of
Israel, because the Lord loves Israel forever, therefore made he thee King, to do Judgement and Justice."

Queen of Sheba returned to Ethiopia with the Divine "Genes" of King Solomon in her womb (i.e.,
pregnant).   A son was born to her, his father King Solomon gave the name of the "Son" "Menelik".

At the age of 21 years old, he was sent to Jerusalem to his father to be blessed and receive the Divine
Anointment and Blessing that was Hereditary for the seed of David.  When Menelik visited Jerusalem the
people were all astonished because of the resemblance of Prince Menelik, and stated that it was the return of
his father King David.  King Solomon then called the High Priest Zadok and the Prophet Nathan and asked
that Prince Menelik be given the Acient Ritual of Baptism Anointment that is given to the house of David, so
as to allow the Divine incarnation to be fulfilled upon his son Prince Menelik, in order for him to return to
Ethiopia as the First-friuts of "Christ" so as to fulfil
Genesis 49 v10 "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah,
nor the lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; unto him shall the gathering of the people render

After the Ancient Ritual was administered on Prince Menelik he went back to Ethiopia with the "Ark of the
Covenant" to the capital Axum fulfilling prophecy, identifying Ethiopia as the new Jerusalem (
Revelation 21
).  Compatible to (Psalm 87 v1-4) "His foundation is in the Holy Mountain, behold Philistine, and Tyre,
with Ethiopia, this man was born there.

Comments:  Prince Menelik established the Divine "Gene" in which the "Christ" would come from in the last
day fulfilling
Revelation 5 v5, "And I wept much, but one of the Elders said to me, Weep not, behold the Lion
of the Tribe of Judah, the Root and offspring of King David, has prevailed to open the book and to loose the
Seven Seals thereof.".
Rastalogical Commentary:  On the Christ visiting other nations so as to allow a remnant from each nation to be
saved because of "Christman" who appeared from among them as the Prophet that the Lord thy God shall raise up
from the midst of his brethren.  During the advent of the "Word" appearing among the nation, the prophets were
seen as the Eye, the Mouth, the Ears of Yahweh Elohim Sabboath, watchman who warned the City; starting from
Rastalogical Advent of Jesus The Christ Finding
Isaiah the prophet speaks of the coming of the Messiah, the 'Immanuel' God with us who would come to
restore the Throne of his father David and bring back Judgement and Justice to the people, Israel and

Isaiah 7 v13-16:  "And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David, are you not satisfied with trying the patience
of men, without trying the patience of my God also?  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;  Behold
a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and his name will be called Immanuel.  Butter and honey shall he eat,
that he may know to refuse the evil and choose the good."

Isaiah 9 v6-8:  "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given and the government shall be upon his
shoulders, his name will be called Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, and the
Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of his Government and peace there shall be no end, upon the Throne of
David and upon his Kingdom, to order it and establish it with Judgement and with Justice from henceforth
and even for ever.  The zeal of the Lord of Host will perform this.  The Lord sent a word into Jacob and it had
lighted upon Israel."

This prophecy bring about the present of Jesus the Christ, Son of Mary and Joseph from the house of
King David in a time when the people of Abraham seed were living under Roman Imperialism and needed a
Saviour Leader who could give them back hope in themselves, both Religious and Govermentally.  Jesus (Joshua)
came through the announcement of the messenger Angel Gabriel to Mary and told her of the Royal Birth.

St. Luke 1 v31-32:  "...behold thou shall conceive in thy womb and bring forth a Son, and you must name him
Jesus.  He will be Great and will be called the Son of the Highest and Lord God shall give unto him the Throne
of his Father King David."

St. Luke 2 v25-34:  Simeon the just and devoted man and Anna the Prophetess saw Jesus and identified him
as the "Christ" when his mother Mary took him to the Temple to offer sacrifice according to the law.

This demonstated Jesus The Christ from he was eight days old as it was written in the law as fulfilled
by Isaiah the Prophet.
Rastalogical finding of the "Christ" in the person of the Ethiopian Eunuch.
Acts 8 v26:  Has established the Christ in the person of the Ethiopian Eunuch through the Ancient
Rites of Anointment by the disciple Philip:
And the Angel of the Elohim told Philip to go to south from
Jersusalem to Gaza, where he met the Ethiopian Eunuch reading the Prophet Isaiah.  Philip asked him if he
understands what he was reading, he invited Philip to sit with him, where they discussed the fundamental of
"Jesus The Christ" operation and objectives of the Nazarite movement, at this point the Eunuch asked Philip
what was stopping him from becoming a member of the Nazarite movement, Philip asked him if he believes
that Jesus The Christ was the Son of God and the True King of Israel and he answered and said yes, at that
point they reached the water and the Eunuch ordered the chariot to stop, then he and Philip went down into
the water where Philip baptised him.

Comment:  Philip administered unto him the Ancient Rites of Anointment.  The Anointment of the Eunuch is
compatible to that of King David, King Solomon,, Prince Menelik, and Jesus The Christ.  At that moment in
time, the Ethiopian Eunuch transfigurated to be the Christ of his era, then Philip went on his way and the
Eunuch saw him no more.  The baptism of the Ethiopian Eunuch resurrected and established the Christ
lineage back in Ethiopia so as to allow the second Advent of the Christ coming to be fruitful in Ethiopia.
Rastalogical Birth of Haile Selassie I
The Second Advent of The "Christ" in these last days.

"Tafari" was born in the year of St. John 23rd July 1892 of our beloved Wayzaro Yashimabet for our
Salvation.  In this way, after being conceived in the womb of our beloved Wayzaro Yashimabet, God the Son
was born man, by his conception God the Son "Tafari" became incarnated taking our nature, he put on mortal
flesh and made immortal.  

Moses spoke of the Prophet the Lord thy God would raise up from amongst his brethrens.

Deuteronomy 18 v15:  "Yahweh Elohim Sabboath will raise up onto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of
thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken."
Isaiah 9 v6:  "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given and the Government shall be upon his
shoulder and his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father and
the Prince of Peace."
Psalm 87 v1-4:  "His foundation is in the Holy Mountain, the Elohim loved the Gates of Zion more than the
dwelling places of Jacob.  Glorius things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.  I will make mention of
Rahab and Babylon to them that know I, behold Philistine and Tyre, with Ethiopia this man "Tafari" was born
there.  And of Zion it shall be said this and that man "Rastafari" was born in her, and the Highest himself
"Haile Selassie I" shall establish her".
Isaiah 43 v14:  "Thus said Elohim your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel and Ethiopia.  For your sake I have
sent to Babylon and brought down all their Nobles and Chaldeans whose cry is in the ship."
Jeremiah 23 v5:  "Behold the days come said the Elohim that I will raise unto David a Righteous Branch, and a
King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute Judgement and Justice in the earth."
Revelation 5 v5:  "And one of the Elders said unto me, Weep not; Behold The Lion of the Tribe of Judah, The
Root and Offspring of David has prevailed to open the Book and loose the Seal thereof."
Rastalogical Commentary on the Birth of Haile Selassie I
Jesus the Christ spoke of the second coming of the Christ by identifying the world events which would take
place, the different signs and wonders that would appear in the heavens and on earth.   
St. Matthews 24 v29,
spoke of the Moon and the Sun shall be darkened and shall withdraw their light.  And the star shall fall from
the heaven and the power of the heavens shall be shalken.

Christ the Godman who walked earth 2000 years ago said whenever you see these things, the end is near,
the second advent of the Christ the Godman of the ages would be born to fulfil his role on earth as the
Immanuel ('God with us').

If one should study the Astronomy of the movement of the stars and celestial bodies, one would be aware
that on
November 13, 1833, remnants of a star fell on the earth and on May 19, 1780, the Sun and the Moon
were darkened and withdrew their shine and the people of the world experienced the prophecy spoken of by
the Master "Christ" of the coming Christ.

In the year of St. John 16th of Hamle 1885 (23rd July 1892) in a little villiage town of "Ejersa Goro" in the
Province of "Harar" Ethiopia.  On a stormy night while the Lighting and Thunder and heavy rain was falling,
Wayzaro Yashimabet conceived in her womb her ninth Pregnancy of her only Son "Tafari" 'The Christ'; who
came in a time when Ethiopia was going through one of the hardest droughts.

The birth of "Tafari" gave back to the land Ethiopia the Divine Blessing as in
Genesis 1 v1, "In the beginning
God created the Heaven and the Earth." as in
Genesis 1 v2, "...and darkness was upon the face of the water."  
The birth of "Tafari" on that stormy night in the year of St. John 16th Hamle 1885 (23rd July 1892)
represents the fulfillment of
Genesis 1 v2.  Lighting and Thunder with Flooding, the Spirit (Tafari) of God
moved upon the water.  A good "Omen" to Ethiopia.

"Tafari" was given the Ancient Blessing by the family Priest Abba Walda Kidan compatible to that of the
blessing received by Jesus when he was eight days old and his mother took him to the Temple for his
blessing according to the law.

Genealogical Jesus the Christ and "Tafari" has fulfilled the same work compatible to that of Moses and
Abram:  At birth Abram's father had to hide him because the King Nimrod gave the order to kill all the male
children, when Moses was born, Pharoah gaive the order to slay all male children, when "Tafari" was born,
four years after his birth the Vatican of Rome declared war against Ethiopia, objective to slay the child
"Tafari", but at no time the Evil has any power over any of "The Christs",  the battle of Adowa 1896.

The Crowning Glory of "Tafari" came about on Sunday, 2nd November 1930, when King Rastafari Makonnen
ascended the Imperial Throne through the Ancient Divine Rites of Anointment, King Rastafari Makonnen was
Anointed by Abuna Krilos the Samuel with the Ancient Oil that anoints all the Christ Kings starting from King
David to Prince Menelik to Haile Selassie I, after receiving the anointment King Rastafari Makonnen
Transfigurated to Haile Selassie I, the God of all ages spoken of by all the prophets "The Christ" return to
reign.  The Seventy-Two (72nd) Master, all praises due unto him.  Amen.
