[[[ YOU ARE STUCK IN THE NEW TESTAMENT AND YOU DON'T SIGHT THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES LIKE PSALMS 87 ETC YOU QUOTE THE ENGLISH SOCALLED NEW TESTAMENT AND SAY THESE ARE JESUS WORDS LIKE YOU SAW A SIGNATURE SAYING WRITTEN BY JES-US THE CHRIST, OR AS THE HEBREW WOULD SAY YASHUA HA MASHEAK, THE MODERN DAY TERM USED IN ETHIOPIA FOR JES-US THE CHRIST IS YESUS KRISTOS. ]]]
Haile Selassie I says "The Bible, however old the version may be, in whatever language it might be written, THE WORD REMAINS THE SAME, IT TRANSCENDS ALL BOUNDARIES OF EMPIRES AND ALL CONCEPTIONS OF RACE AND CULTURE. IT IS ETERNAL. Today man sees all his hopes and aspirations crumbling before him. He is perplexed and knows not whither he is drifting. BUT HE MUST REALIZE THAT THE BIBLE IS HIS REFUGE AND THE RALLYING POINT FOR ALL HUMANITY. In it man will find the solution to his present difficulties and guidance for this future action, and unless he accepts with clear conscience the Bible and its great message, he cannot hope for salvation."
[[[ THE PRAISE OF HAILE SELASSIE I BEING THE ALMIGHTY WILL NEVER GO AWAY AND EVEN IF HE IS NO ONE SPECIAL TO YOU AS YOUR GEEZAS IS, TO US WHO CALL OURSELVES RASTAFARI SONS AND DAUGHTERS HE IS THE ALMIGHTY WITHOUT ANY APOLOGY. ]]]
Trust me mi brethren, If you are wrong, it will go away, ONLY Truth is Eternal.
[[[ WHAT WOULD ALL OF US BE QUOTING FROM NOW IF NO BIBLE WAS HERE, I AM NOT A TOTAL BIBLE DEPENDENT AND IF YOU KNEW THE HISTORY OF HAILE SELASSIE I AS YOU CLAIM, WHY DID HIS MAJESTY READ BOOKS ON NAPOLEON, GOETH, GENGISCARN, AND THE STRATEGY OF EUROPEAN WAR. ]]]
Haile Selassie Read many book, he is a STRONG STRONG advocate for Education, Yet this is what he says of the Bible,
"In it man will find the solution to his present difficulties and guidance for this future action, and unless he accepts with clear conscience the Bible and its great message, he cannot hope for salvation."
I have not read him wrote this of any other Book, if you have please share with us this information.
[[[ RIGHT NOW YOU USE PSYCHOLOGY USING THE SOCALLED BIBLICAL WORDS OF JES-US AS YOU CLAIM, YOU COME UP SHORT EVERY TIME AND I CAN SEE SCRIPTURES WHERE THE SAME JES-US SPEAK OF HIS FATHER IN NO LESS MANNER THAN THE EMPEROR. ]]]
Please show my in the scripture where Jesus says that we Must not believe in Him, and "they [those who believe in him] should never make a mistake that the human beign is eminated from a diety" as is the exactly words of Haile Selassie.
[[[ WELL THE RASTAFARI PERSONS IN GENERAL HAVE COME TO DECLARE THE CHRIST IN IS NEW NAME EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE I JAH RASTAFARI THIS HALF WAS NOT BEING TOLD. ]]]
How come Haile Selassie Himself did not once mention this
and also How come most people who worship him do not follow in his footsteps, via lifestle, diet etc.
[[[ DID NOT JES-US SAY WHY CALL HIM GOOD WHEN ONLY GOD IS GOOD? WHY WOULD THIS SOCALLED PERFECT MAN SAY THIS? YOU ASK SELASSIEILIVE IF HE QUESTIONS THE AUTHORITY OF THE BIBLE, AND IF HE WAS DOING THAT, THAT GOES AGAINST THE SPIRIT OF HAILE SELASSIE I, I QUESTION EVERYTHING EVEN GOD. ]]]
Wrong Jesus on many occasion declared Himself to be who he IS, Where it is documented that Haile Selassie even remotly declared himself to be the Almighty ?
Jesus therefore said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world." They said therefore to Him, "Lord, evermore give us this bread." Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst." (John 6:32-35)
In John 14:6, Jesus declares “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
"I and the Father are one." The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?" The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God." (John 10:30-33)
Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life." The Pharisees therefore said to Him, "You are bearing witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true." Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true; for I know where I came from, and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from, or where I am going." (John 8:12-14)
[[[ THE BIBLE IS INCONSISTANT THE BIBLE AS THE GOOD AND BAD MIXED UP IN IT SO WHICH JESUS ARE YOU QUOTING TO VERIFY THESE BIBLICAL WORDS TRUE, BECAUSE IN ONE PART HE IS THE GOOD SHEPHERD, IN ANOTHER SOMEONE CALLS HIM GOOD LORD AND HE REPLIES WHY CALL HIM GOOD WHEN NO OTHER BUT GOD IS GOOD.
YOU SEE IF YOU ARE GOING TO QUOTE THE BIBLE AND QUOTE EMPEROR SPEECHES PLEASE COME RIGHT, FOR JESUS AS BEEN QUOTED AS SAYING NEGATIVE THINGS IN THE BIBLE ALSO. ]]]
This is SO Against Haile Selassie I, how come you claim to believe in Haile Selassie but fight against what he stands for. Haile Selassie I says "The Bible, however old the version may be, in whatever language it might be written, THE WORD REMAINS THE SAME, IT TRANSCENDS ALL BOUNDARIES OF EMPIRES AND ALL CONCEPTIONS OF RACE AND CULTURE. IT IS ETERNAL.
