Shalom and greetings in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the tri-une AMLAK (God) SELASSIE!
MMH want to post a quick note, a seed of a reasoning as we are inspired to illustrate this after meditation today.
How can Christ be God AND Man?
First off, the carnal man cannot perceive or overstand the things of Jah. So kill the carnality. Ones have to stop using their physical senses to see Jah and instead, start using the spiritual senses. If you don’t have them, Jah is a gracious rewarder to those who seek H.I.M
Back on topic. God AND Man. So many ones struggle with this foundation. This is the stone of stumbling to so many, especially those in the Islamic camp who think Allah is seperate from his human creation that they are never able to become intimate and in relationship with that diety. We see Jah like Jacob (Yacob)saw Jah at Peniel (face to face). We see Jah like Abraham saw HIM when He arrives at Abraham’s tent as Selassie God Man and ate food with our patriarch in faith. So Jah the Almighty Selassie (Trinity) can manifest on the physical plane as a man with a body. He does this often in scripture.
You know readers, InI aren’t pantheists; we don’t think Jah is bound within the frameworks of His own creation. He exists outside the universe’s space-time continuum. No man eminates from a Diety. That is what Hinduism is. And this is what Rastafari is not. Haile Selassie I teaches no man eminates from deity!
InI talk often about our God and King. We proclaim His Imperial Majesty is divine God King! How?
For this cause: Christ is God and Man. Tewahedo faith of Holy Ethiopia teaches this. That we become one (tewahedo) Iyesus Kristos is one with His Father Abba and we are made one in the Son and thus one with the Abba also. Through the grace of Jah and His Son’s obedience, we are made one with the Almighty through His Holy Spirit, the Irie Irit.
Want a physical example of tewahedo?
How is it possible that a sperm and an egg (ovum) cell can fuse to become a seperate person with it’s own identity? You know how? When the sperm hits the eggs cell there’s a surge of bioelectricity that transforms the two elements, and the energy quickens the two cells to fuse and become one. InI had a Christian doctor tell us years ago that the electric surge is measureable and he used to call it ‘Ishkra’ (Polish for ‘spark’). He said that was the Holy Spirit breath of life going into the cell.
That’s as close an example of the tewahedo kingciple we can see in the natural dimension. InI are fully of our earthlymother, fully of our earthly father, but InI are “me”, individual man.
Likewise Christ is God and Man perfect unity of the Divine and the Human.
His Imperial Majesty is Christ in His Kingly Character. He is divine!
