Greetings to one&all. I have a few questions about RAS TAFARI that maybe you can help me to understand.

1) What mean Power of the Trinity? " Negus Tafari is crowned Emperor of Ethiopia and takes his baptismal name HAILE SELASSIE which means Power of the Trinity"

So Haile Selasie means Power of the Trinity? Now, what it means Power Of Trinity?

My second question is about the Lion of Judah? Whah does this interpreted? whast the meaning?

sorry for my bad english.

thanks, greetings.

Power of the trinity

Life come forth through the holy trinity. The holy trinity is life. Haile Selassie I is One  with power of the trinity. Haile Selassie I is the power of the trinity.

See the Oneness. That force is real and eternal. Haile Selassie I is that force manifested in Man. Perfect, God and King. The exampel to follow. Salvation of mankind, to those who accept. 

Love and blessings everytime. Rastafari!

On earth God manifests Himself in persons viz;
Prophet, Priest and King.
So one has only seen Jah in His fullness if and only if they have seen all the three persons, seen?

And of these three great persons, only the King Himself has power and control..........
...that's why King Selassie-I was crowned with the title Haile Selassie-I, seen?

I didnt understand yet, sorry. Haile Selassie is the Power of the Trinity, but why?

Messenger: Ras Kanjas Sent: 7/2/2012 1:27:44 AM

am wondering if you would understand even if I continue to talk to you...hahaha!

What is the Trinity?

It is a union or group of three people, seen?

Who are these three people?

They are the Prophet, the Priest and the you understand?

Then, here is wisdom;
Who possesses the Power, of all these three people?

What is Power?

Power is the ability to control, right?

So the Prophet has no control over the Priest, neither does the Priest has any control over the King,
But the King Himself has Power and total control over these two........... see, it's a hierarchy!
It's different from the civil governments that rule over us today, where politicians fight for power, seen?

It's like in a family,
there is the father, the mother and the child...........hahaha!
Tell me who should control here?
Should the child tell her parents how to run things in this household?!?!?!

Hahaha...........I hope you understand now!

When Jah created your system,
He gave you a head,
And He did not place it at the bottom like your feet,
But He positioned it at the utmost represent rank, seen?

If you want to learn about the significance of your body parts, try to imagine two simple cases wherein;
a) You got your feet, but no head, and
b) You got your head, but no feet, seen?
Would you go for a) or b) ?!?!?!

You see, in Jah Kingdom, the King is like your head in your system...hahaha!

Power of the Trinity!

I guess you desire to know how Ras Tafari ascended the throne, right?

Take a look at Solomon;
Why and how did He became a King, yet David had many sons other than Solomon?

Solomon was chosen by God, seen?

So how did Ras Tafari became Haile Selassie-I, being the first Ethiopian Emperor to be crowned with a title Power of the Trinity?

Ras Tafari was chosen by God, just like Solomon from amongst His brethren!

Why was He the first to be crowned like that in Ethiopia?

Because all the rulers of Africa who were before Him, were not worthy!

Is He the first and last African King to be crowned Haile Selassie-I?

Yes He was the first, but another generation should come and replace Him in the future.......... He ain't the last, seen?

God will always show Himself to us in the form of a Trinity............ another Power of the Trinity should be chosen, seen?

I was taught that the trinity refers to:
God, the Father
God, the Son
God, the Holy Spirit
Three in one.
Mind you, I was raised Christian, not rasta, so this response may not be sufficient.
