Start with the bibile(from beggining to end).Then go to history,from the beggining of man to the now.Then start at Ethiopian from the begining of man kind to now,look at what is called Africa.That should get you started,and when the time is right if you are sincere about wanting to know about rasta(I will live out the ism)then hope fully you can see it for yourself.

Hail His Majesty Ras Tafari, Selassie I. Bredda Alex, I man can answer your question. I can see that you read a bible due to your earlier quote. There are many names for God my lord. Jesus Christ, Yesus Christos, Immanuel, Yoshua... it goes on my Lord. It is the God that you pray to, HIM know who you talking to. He is the Lord Jah Rastafari my lord, and He knows your heart so He can not be mistaken. He does not require a secret password, only your undying faith and love from your heart my lord.

Let my words be acceptable in the sight of our Lord Haile I Selassie I Jah Rastafari.

Ras Zion I

-> lets get stoned ? don't you think that your name sounds a bit strange to serious brethren ? if you want to know sthg bout this topic, how come you use such a silly name ? to I that name sounds like you don't want to learn, but to smoke herbs. maybe you feel attacked now or it seems to you like I want to mek us war against each other, but I just recognized it and want to know.
and it mek I think about it, because Brethren been teaching I not to abuse any name or to abuse anything as a name. so I want to know why you use this name.

and another question: why do you use the word "rastafarianISM" ?
I don't want to attack you or judge you, it's just a question. and it interest I because I often see people saying ISM to Rasta, because "the system say so that it is an -ism" and so they call it whatever they get teached and they think about it whatever they get teached about it.
and I want to know how come people use -ism, because it seems like everything religious they don't know automatically is an -ism.





-> Hail Emperor Sellassie I JHWH, Dreadnut. yes, I read I Ible. but due it is true what th'I say, it mek I think. because it also say "one shall not abuse HIS name". so this could mean one shall not call him emperor, but shall call him like HE teached us through / in the bible. so this would mean I and I should call HIM JHWH, the God of Israel. but HIM return as Emperor Haile Sellassie I in Endtime armageddeon. so we know not how to call HIM. should we call HIM his new name (like Ras Michael argues in one of his songs) or shall we still call him the way he told us through the Bible. or should we call him one of that names he gave us, no matter which name as long it ain't a newly created name. but whle writing this there comes sthg into I mind: "and the word was with God. and the Word was god. no one shall know his name. his name is the word of God." so the name is Haile Sellassie because it means "power of hola I-nity" and is the word of God. so shall we call Him this way ? these things mek I think y'know.

others argue that it ain't the name that makes the vibe but the sound power. so it is the power of the word we call god with. truth too. it still mek I think.


what means the name Immanuel translated ?

Israel I

Blessings my lord,

When His Majesty met with the Rastafari brethren in Ethiopia, they brought HIM gifts and He asked them, "Are these from the RASTAFARI bredren?" Remember that the prayers are to come from our heart, not our lips. While there are those who say it is part of the word sound and power this may be true. But the fact is that He wants your heart and love and for you to believe in HIM. That is first and formost. A man could pronounce His name anyway that they want but if they don't follow and abide in His ways then the words never mattered anyway. Theology and words are only used to describe what we are referencing to, the words are not accually what we are describing, but a means of communication. Immanuel means "God is with us." It comes from the Hebrew. Isiah had a revelation from the Lord about the true King, who would share poverty and affliction of His people and whose character and work would entitle Him to the names of Isiah 9:6.

To the I who signed as "Lets get stoned." I am a serious bredren. I and I don't get stoned my lord. The heathen get stoned. I man find enlightenment of self and spirit through the communion of Lambsbread. We are not pot heads my lord. I man follow the order of Nyahbinghi not hippies. I would like to keep the conversation kingly and right.

Blessed love
Hail HIM
Ras Zion I
