January 2008 - This morning, when I
checked out the feedback on the Dubroom, it
happened again: "Haile Selassie Is Not
God", some comment read.
Haile Selassie means "Power of the
Trinity". Obviously, for Christians it
is not so difficult to identify the Lord God
and Saviour Yesus Kristos, because is it not
so that He told us: "Unto Me is given
all power in Heaven and on Earth"?
But this self-proclaimed Christian who
wrote the comment on the Dubroom, was not
He, or she, was referring to the
Ethiopian Emperor Tafari Makonnen, who was
crowned Haile Selassie in the 1930's. And to
the fact that many, but not all, within the
Movement named after Ras (Head) Tafari,
believe that this Ethiopian Emperor is in
fact what his name and title mean.
The Ethiopian Emperor himself, however,
never claimed to be what his names and
titles mean. In fact, he strongly denied
being Jah and boldly proclaimed to be a
Christian himself. The Emperor did make
claims of being a descendant of King David,
though, a claim that many believe to be
In spite of popular belief, not all
Rasta's believe the Ethiopian Emperor to be
Take Gadman, the leader of the biggest
Rasta Organization in the world. In an
interview with Jamaican Radio Station IRE
FM, he made statements concerning the fact
that he made a differentiation between the
Emperor and Jesus Christ and how one could
only be saved by the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Yours truly is also of the belief that
the Ethiopian Emperor is not what his names
mean, which is widely known. Being the
transcriber of the authorized transcription
of Gadman's interview, being the Webmaster
of a website where the Emperor can be heard
denying he is Jah, I can hardly be
"accused" of believing His
Imperial Majesty to be JAH.
So, what made this person write that
comment which provoked this article? An
answer may be found in a comment on yet
another website, where someone posted the
following description of me:
Messian Dread, a Zeph Daniel close,
Rastafarian, etc. Yeah right, he's someone
I want to listen to. (LINK)
The comment was made by a
self-proclaimed Christian who apparantly did
not agree with statements I made concerning
Michael Tsarion, a New Age propagandist and
apologist for such evil men as Aleister
Apart from the fact that for the sake of
this article it is not so important who
Michael Tsarion is and so on, it is
interesting to read the ad hominem
argument as it came. If you can't win the
argument, you start attacking the person and
this time I was being accused for being a
It's very interesting, to read how
apparantly "being a Rastafarian"
is a reason for a self-proclaimed
"Christian" to not listen to what
I have to say.
What is so wrong about "being a
Sure, it could very well be that this
person's admitted refusal to check out just
what I am saying led her or him to the idea
that I somehow believe the Ethiopian Emperor
to be Jah. "Don't confuse me with the
facts", I read between the lines
However, since Zeph Daniel was mentioned,
I do not necessarily jump to that conclusion
Zeph Daniel is a talk show host, among
many other things, and I have appeared on
his radio show a couple of times. I
explained how not all Rasta's believe the
Emperor to be what his names mean and
therefore you cannot define the Movement of
Rastafari as a religion based on worship of
the Ethiopian Emperor.
Just like many Arab people believe in the
god of Islam, Allah, not all Arabs do.
Therefore, to say that all Arabs are Muslims
is an untrue statement and yet a variation
on that theme can be found time and time
again in statement and comments from
self-proclaimed Christians on what they
claim are "Rastafarians".
So, it could be that the self-proclaimed
Christian did not want to be confused with
the facts about the Movement and person of
Rastafari and simply chose to attack me for
who I am rather than what I have to say.
That would definitely explain the comment
I read this morning.
However, I have also noticed that within
"Christian" circles, it is not
enough to deny the Emperor to be Jah anyway.
Simply speaking positively about the
Emperor, can provoke an
"anathema". Trying to place his
personality and function in a biblical
perspective because of the Davidic
bloodline, is being seen as
"Haile Selassie Is Not God", is
the message. The one-and-only message, so it
Don't even bother moving forward by
trying to find out just who he is, since he
is not Jah. Don't try pointing out to the
special place Ethiopia has in the Bible,
What is it, that makes self-proclaimed
Christians curse the Emperor and
Rastafarians regardless as to whether they
believe the Emperor to be Jah or not?
It is my strong conviction, that this has
everything to do with something that
"all" Rastafarians would agree to.
For it is not so, that all Rastafarians
believe the Ethiopian Emperor to be JAH, as
just a little bit of research will reveal to
every genuine seeker of Truth. The Dubroom
website is actually ministering to these
very seekers of Truth by providing nuff
evidence to proof the undeniable fact.
But there are definitively things that
"all" Rastafarians would agree to,
things not in agreement with "Christian
Correctness" as defined by the western
forms of organized "Christianity"
and it's offshoots.
One of these things is the identification
of what is usually called "Western
Judeo-Christian Civilization" as
"Babylon System". In addition to
that, "all Rastafarians" would
identify Haile Selassie's Ethiopia as a true
Judeo-Christian culture or civilization!
By doing so, Rastafarians express a total
rejection of a paradigm that is so prominent
within the structures of western
Christianity. A paradigm that dictates
people to defend a Church-and-State system
responsible for keeping people in mental
slavery ever since the Roman emperor
"Christianity" in 325 AD or
The European colonialism that followed in
itself can be traced back to the destroyed
foundations of the ancient Tower-of-Babel, a
fact that is often used by New Age
"researchers" such as Michael
Tsarion and Jordan Maxwell in order to
discredit what they will call
These propagandists will point out to the
alleged Christianity of warmongering
presidents and popes as some kind of
definitive proof that Yesus Kristos and His
Message of Salvation is to be rejected as
fiction. Self-proclaimed Christians will
confirm this idea by basically agreeing with
the identification of
"Christianity" and apply bizarre
reasoning to defend these self-proclaimed
The Movement of Rastafari definitely
takes a separate position in all of this.
Founded in Jamaica by descendants of
Africans whose fore parents were taken as
slaves on ships that had names like
"Jesus", the early Rastafarians
knew too well how the Jesus that was
worshipped by their slave masters could
never be the real Most High God and Creator.
They knew, that -unlike Europe- Ethiopia
or Africa is mentioned in the Bible straight
from the start, where it is listed as being
part of the Garden of Eden. They knew, that
-unlike Europe- the first church outside of
Israel was located in this very same
Ethiopia, as this very same Bible tells us
through the Book of Acts.
This particular knowledge is spelled out
in the very same Bible that the Babylonians
who defend their Church-and-State system as
"Judeo-Christian" claim to uphold.
The Bible makes it very clear, how the Good
Lord God Jah looks on that system as a
"Beast" and in especially the last
book, called Revelation or the Apocalypse,
even announces it's ultimate destruction at
the very return of Jesus Christ.
Still, we see people who claim to be
Christian, who claim to know all about the
Divine Saviour and believe themselves to be
Born Again through His Holy Spirit, strongly
defending a system that is so clearly
condemned by the Most High God Himself!
Their only comment about a true
Judeo-Christian king who himself pointed out
to Yesus Kristos continually, and about a
Movement inspired by this Emperor to be
prophetic voices in the identification of
the western "Judeo-Christian"
civilization as Babylon and her upcoming
downstruction, is one of utter and total
Instead of moving forward after realizing
how -indeed- the Ethiopian Emperor is not
Jesus Christ by trying to discover just who
he was if not Jah, these self-proclaimed
Christians team up with New Age researchers
such as Michael Tsarion and write totally
irrelevant and unnecessary comments about
the Dubroom and the writings of yours truly.
They are obviously offended when their
beloved "Judeo-Christian" system
is identified for what she really is!
It's really not about worshipping the
Emperor as God. It has been sufficiently
proven how not all Rastafarians worship the
Emperor as God and therefore that particular
belief cannot be used to describe a whole
Movement, so there is another reason why
Rasta is attacked by self-proclaimed
I believe, it has to do with
We can hear time and time again, how the
West is supposedly built on
"Judeo-Christian values and
morals", how for example the founding
father of the United States of America were
supposed to be Christian and how very
Christian the constitution of these United
States is supposed to be.
Or we can hear it in the absurd claims of
the European royal bloodlines that claim
descendance from Jesus Christ and wear
supposed Christian symbology in order to
"proof" their case.
Self-proclaimed Christians who have an
allegiance with this system we have
identified as Babylon, will usually get very
mad and angry whenever their beloved system
is exposed for the antichrist shitstem
that she really is.
Just like their fore parents who went to
Africa as "teachers" of what they
called "Christianity" to the
"undeveloped savages", they will
continue exposing their superiority
complex to those "pot smoking,
emperor-worshipping Jamaican hippies"
and not only refuse to check out things for
themselves, but perpetuate the myth of a
I think, that it is time for everyone who
truly know themselves to be born again
through the Holy Spirit to actually start
finding the truth out for themselves rather
than relying on so-called
"researchers" with their pack of
lies to attack a Christianity that has
nothing to do with the true Message of Yesus
I think, that it is time for every
self-proclaimed "Christian" to
check out just what I am writing about the
Emperor, about Yesus, rather than
perpetuating lies about Rastafari and
insults to a Christian brother who happened
to be Emperor of Ethiopia and chose the name
"Power of the Trinity" to express
who he was really worshipping!
