Blessings to all this Ethiopian New Year – Melkam Addis Amet, to all Jah’s sons and daughters.
Set ye the double peace for InI Abba Tachin. Make your face to shine upon InI Rases.
Welcome back to MMH. We’re gonna get straight into this iditation and reasoning.
Psalm 132:7-8 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength
Ethiopia is the resting place of Jah’s Ark – the Tabot that is now housed in Ethiopia. Footstool here is ‘Hadom’
The footstool of Jah is the Ark of the Covenant: if the Ark is in Ethiopia, Ethiopia is Zion. The Ark is the place at which Amlak rests His feet in the earth (Psalm 99:5).
Psalm 132 points to Ethiopia-Zion (Holy Ethiopia, not the secular corruption) and the renaissance of David’s House, which is Qedemawi Haile Selassie and Rastafari people:
Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
For thy servant David’s sake turn not away the face of thine anointed. The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.
For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.
This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
Psalm 132:18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish
Crown here is Hebrew ‘Nezer’ as in the Nazarite. There is a flourishing of Nazarites pointed to in this psalm. What moment in history or movement has seen the eruption of spiritually consecrated beings with the ‘long unshorn hair (of a woman)?’
Rastafari wear the Crown!
His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish
Flourish in verse 132:18 is ‘Tsuwts’ or ‘To shine, to blossom’
Berhane Selassie ‘Light of the Trinity’ shone brightly, and ‘earth was lightened with his glory’ – Haile Selassie I
Shame is connected to baldness – bald heads (see Ezekiel 27:31, Micah 1:16, Leviticus 21:5)
Megishtu yante natinya, hailed misganam, lazalalemu, amen.
The Kingdom, Power, Glory and Honour belong to Selassie I, in the world without end, Amen.
