King Selassie I

King Selassie I

King Selassie I is the Lord and Savior of the Rasta People. The same way Christians look to Christ as their lord and Savior, is the Same way that Rastafari look to (Ras – Tafari) King Selassie I as our Lord and Savior. I love you King Selassie I.

The Garden of Eden, and Ethiopia.

It is said that the garden of Eden rests in present day Ethiopia. The Rastafarian flag is a flag of so many truths. The Rastafarian flag is actually the flag of Ethiopia, Ethiopia is a holy land, where Jah created his first man and first woman. Read more about this in my book “Rastafari Beliefs and Principles”

Lion of Judah

The lion of Judah is depicted on the Ethiopian flag. But what does this Lion really mean? The lion is actually a representation of King Selassie I him Self. King Selassie I is the great lion of Judah. King Selassie I title at his crowing November 2nd 1930, was “King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of The tribe of Judah, Elect of God.” Oh King Selassie I, I and I love you.

The truth of  God

The Rastafarian Flag is the Truth of God. The Rastafarian Flag is the original Ethiopian flag. The original Ethiopian flag colors order was red yellow and then green, as chosen by Emperor Menelik I.  The flag was changed by people not of the Ethiopian monarchy. Why? I don’t know. You can read more about the original colors of the Ethiopian flag on Wikipedia.com. The good news is, because of the spiritual beliefs of the Rastafari people’s, the original Ethiopian flag has stayed very much alive. I love my lion of Judah Flag.

I once had a Bee fly into my room and rest on the window sill on the inside. I knew he could sting me, but I decided not to let fear, make my decisions for me and to trust the Most High. I let the Bee stay there. The next day, he was gone, and he didn’t come and sting me during the night, like I was afraid he would. To learn more about the Beliefs of the Rastafari people, read How to Become a Rasta or White Rastafari.

Is there anything Rastafari people do different from others?

Yes, The Rastafari people do not believe in cutting their hair as this is how we honor Jah. We Salute our Ancestors who walked before us by chanting, or by lighting an incent, during special dates or Rastafari.

The Rastafarian Flag also represents Jamaica. The reason is many Rasta who love King Selassie I come out of Jamaica. King Selassie I, of Ethiopia visited Jamaica in April, of
