Greetings and blessings in the name of Qedemawi Haile Selassie – King of kings and Conquering Lion of Judah! It’s the Festival of Lights/Livication AKA Hannukah.
John 10:22-30 “And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication (livication – Hannukah), and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them iternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.”
The same controversy about wether Haile Selassie is Christ was happening to Jah’s Son Yeshuwa in Judea. This is an old debate in Israel. Pharisees and dogmatic Jews wanting plain declarations of the tongue when Christ teaches that His works declare HIM. And still they stone HIM for blasphemy, because everyone wanted His Imperial Majesty to tell the Rastafari “I am not God. I am not Christ” but the Scripture says “Thou shalt not bare false witness”! His Imperial Majesty IS CHRIST.
John 10:31-39 – Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand…
Rastafari proclaim this: Jah has come. Jah is coming. And He will come!
Christ is here. He never left us. Don’t skylark. Don’t stargaze, unless you want to check the time.
Jah’s temple is living. His Light which is His fire dwells in the body of mankind. Haile Selassie I is the chapel. He is sanctified by the Son, has He does the works of the Son and bares witness to the Son of God. This is not blasphemy. This is plain teaching from the Son of God, Yashuwah HaMoshiyah! Ye are gods. But ye are devils if you don’t do the will of the Father of Light. So livicate iselves in this festival. Get a little more oil. Get a little more fire. Burn out the confusions. Burn out the illusions. Chase out the darkness, fill iselves up with the Light of Jah, the Berhane Selassie.
MMH share the following images to mark the occassion.
The image below is a carving from the Arch of Titus in Rome. After the Second Temple was ransacked the Romans marched into their capitol triumphantly carrying the oil lamp of the second temple on their backs. It was tragic, but more tragic is that Hebrew Israelites rejected the Light of the World, their Messiah. See that oil lamp is InI. It is the Seven Churches. It is the oil lamp within our own body. Lit by the fire of the Almighty, our body temple is light within. When the Judeans rejected Jah, they had already lost their menorah. The Romans merely showed them what they’d lost in taking the parable item.
