Ras Tafari Renaissance

Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,


So, with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, nonetheless studied either the Torah portion of Nitẓabïm-נִצָּבִים, from the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in the year 5774 year, this Sabbath day, (as the Hebraic year comes to a close) would probably be accounted for as the 24th-כד, & the 25th-כה,  day of the Hebrew month of the month of Elūl-אֱלוּל(the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) From an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known also as, Q’ōmachi’ḥʷal-ቆማችኋል.  This would calculate as the 9th-፱, & the 10th-፲, of the month of Meskerém-መስከረም.  The Ethiopic calendar is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church(the other language being Ge’ez-(ግእዝ).


Deuteronomy 29:10 – 30:20

Isaiah 61:10 – 63:9

Romans 10: 1-12

In this portion of the Scripture studies’, Moses tells the people that adherence and obedience to the laws, which they were given/taught would allow them to prolong their days in the land, & make them fruitful in abundance; in contrast, turning away would lead them down the road to destruction.  Only turning to the ways which the children of Israel were taught by Moses in the way of God, would lead them again into grace.  This would be the parameters for a covenant which God would make with the children of Israel.

(see Scofield Study Bible: the Palestinian Covenant; pg 250; ref Gen. 15: 18, Numb 25: 1-12)

[Deut. 29: 10-13]

Because of their waywardness(the Israelites); God spoke to Moses, telling him to teach the Israelites that the covenant would not only pertain to them alone, though Israel would be a people to God(himself).  The covenant would also include those that would stand with Israel, once upon hearing the words of the book of the Law.  Those who would not hearken to the word, of course, would be a testament to the judgment of disobedience.

[Deut. 29: 13-29]

Blessings And Curse - Copy

Knowing these things that they were taught, being the children of Israel; this would call to remembrance the Blessing & the Curse of the Law.

[Deut. 30: 1-20]


**A DOUBLE-PORTION of the Scripture Readings is attributed to this Sabbath**

So going forward, we also take the time to study the parsha(portion) of

W(V)ayeleḥ-וַיֵּלֶךְ , which corresponds with the portion of Musey’m Heydo-ሙሴም ሄዶ.


Deuteronomy 31: 1-30

Isaiah 55:6 – 56:8

Romans 10: 14-18

In this added installation of the Sabbath readings for this week; Moses prepared the children of Israel to go into the Land of Promise.  Moses, being an hundred and twenty years old, knew that the time had come when God said that he would not cross the Jordan(river).  Because, he did not sanctify God, at the waters of Meribah, he would go to sleep with his fathers, instead of enter into the Promised Land.  Moses is instructed to charge Joshua ben-Nun(the son of Nun) to lead the people in the ways God had commanded them.

[Deut. 31: 1-8]

Moses then, wrote the words of the Law, and had them placed into the Ark of the Covenant by the priests(ie. the Levites) and all the elders of Israel.

{the words of the LAWTorah, were placed inside the Ark of the Covenant, along with the “Budded” Staff of High Priest Aaron(Moses’ brother), and the manna, which the God of the Hebrew people-El Elohe Israel, gave to the children of Israel in the wilderness}

He also instructed the children of Israel to set apart the Seventh Year as the “Year of Release”(or the Shemittah-שמיטה), during the time of the Feast of Tabernacles/Booths/Ingathering(ie. Sukkot-סֻכּוֹת), all of Israel should come to hear the Law, to call it to their remembrance for their following generations to know and obey.

[Deut. 31: 10-13]

Moses brought Joshua in the presence of all Israel to bless him, give him his charge, where God was present with them.  For God knew that the children of Israel would turn away from the ways that they were taught.
