Selassie Is the Chapel by Bob Marley
Haile Selassie is the Chapel
(Ah, Ah, Ahh)
Power of the Trinity
(Trinity, Trinity is He)
Build your mind on this direction
(Ah, Ah, Ahh)
Serve the living God and live
(Living God, Living God and King)
Take your troubles to Selassie
(Ah, Ah, Ahh)
He is the only King of kings
(King of kings, King of kings is He)
Conquering Lion of Judah
(Ah, Ah, Ahh)
Triumphantly we all must sing
(All must sing, all must sing)
I search and I search
this great book of Man
In the Revelation, look what I find
Haile Selassie is the Chapel
(Ah, Ah, Ahh)
All the world should know
(All should know, all should know)
That Man is the Angel
(Ah, Ah, Ahh)
Our God, the King of kings
...And We sing the song of Moses the
servant of God, and the song of the Lamb,
"Great and marvelous are thy works,
Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy
ways, thou King of saints.  Who shall not
fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name?
Haile Selassie I
For thou only art holy; for all nations
shall come and worship before thee;
for thy judgements are made manifest."
And after that I looked, and, behold, the
temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in
heaven was opened...
And the temple was filled with smoke from
the glory of God, and from His power; and
no man was able to enter into the temple,
till the seven plagues of the seven angels
were fulfilled.
Revelation 15v3-5 & 8

It is with great sadness, but faith of eternal life, that The Church of Haile Selassie I (CHSI) notify
you of the ascension of the Honourable Archbishop, Abuna Ammanuel Ascento Foxe on April 20,

The Church of Haile Selassie I extends our deepest condolences to his family, friends, brothers
and sisters of the Rastafarian faith, and the global community.

Archbishop Ammanuel Foxe was a Rastafarian activist for more than fifty years, steering
Rastafarian developments and advancements globally. During that time he served as the
International President for the Imperial Ethiopian World Federation INC, formerly known as the
Ethiopian World Federation (EWF), and the Abuna (Archbishop) of the Church of Haile Selassie I,
a global institution.

Abuna Ammanuel Foxe, (affectionately known as ‘Abuna’) was instrumental in the establishment
of an international body of The Church of Haile Selassie I with membership in Jamaica, England,
USA, Barbados and Trinidad.  The Abuna was instrumental in the Mother Church (Jamaica) being
recognized as a religious institution through the passage of the Church of Haile Selassie I
(Incorporation and Vesting) Act, 2013, after seventeen years of debates in the Jamaican
parliament to pass the bill.

A visionary and a man commissioned by both Emperor Haile Selassie I and his son King Ahma
Selassie I of Ethiopia to organize the Rastafarian movement in Jamaica and the western
hemisphere towards the liberation of Ethiopia from Communist ideals and the restoration of the
Davidic Monarchy and Dynasty of Emperor Haile Selassie I,   Abuna Foxe has always championed
the involvement of Rastafarians in the political process.  

Other accomplishments in this area include; the organizing of two political campaigns for
Rastafarians in Jamaica to contest a general election, instituting a Rastafarian Prison Ministry
whereby Priests and Levites of The Church of Haile Selassie I visits, worships with and stand up
for the religious rights of Rastafarians incarcerated in Jamaica’s prisons and Rastafarians
incarcerated in the prisons of the State of New York, where he was a Rastafarian Chaplain for
nearly twenty years.  In addition he was able to obtain charitable status for the Church of Haile
Selassie I in England, 2004.  

Amongst his other notable achievements were establishing the Ahma Selassie I Basic School,
annual health fairs and a community health clinic in downtown Kingston, Jamaica.

He was also identified by the Crown Council of Ethiopia (monarchy in exile) as a member of the
Council responsible for communication and liaison of Rastafarians issues to the Council. He was
instrumental in ensuring that an official Jamaican government State Visit was given to Prince
Ermias Haile Selassie I on April 21 2016, grandson of Emperor Haile I and President of the Crown
Council of Ethiopia (monarchy In exile), on the commemoration of the fiftieth (50th) anniversary
of Emperor Haile Selassie I, visit to Jamaica on April 21, 1966.

Throughout the entire period of the Abuna’s public life, he acted with integrity as a devoted and
selfless advocate in pursuance of political and religious representation for Rastafarians and
grassroots people internationally.

For his lifelong dedication and service to the people of Ethiopia, the Abuna was awarded
Commander of the Imperial Order of the Star of Ethiopia - one of the highest decorations given
by the Crown of Ethiopia.

We are comforted in knowing that the Abuna fulfilled his duties to the Rastafarian and grassroots
people, and most importantly to his commitment and faith in the Almighty God Emperor Haile
Selassie I.

We are assured that history shall preserve his name and accomplishments.

May Jah grant him a place of rest in his abode continually! Amen! Amen! Amen!
Rise in Power Abuna Ammanuel Ascento Foxe!
*“And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in  the
Emperor Haile Selassie I, from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their
labors; and their works do follow them.”

Ruth 4 v 13 & 17

So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went
in unto her, the LORD gave her conception, and she bare a son.
17  And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying,
There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed:
he is the father of Jesse, the father of David.
Psalm 78 v68 & 70

But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
70  He chose David also his servant, and took him from the
John 7 v42

Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed
of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
Jeremiah 33 v 6 & 9

Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them,
and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.
9  And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour
before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good
that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the
goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.
