Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,
I welcome you all to yet another posting here at Ras Tafari Renaissance! This is another one of the many interpretations of the Scriptures from the light of Ras Tafari by, I, Lidj Yefdi (pronounced Lij, Yef-dee).
Ras Tafari Renaissance writes to give perspective to the Ethiopian commemoration of what is known in Ras Tafarian circles as the “EarthStrong” or Birth date of Ras Tafari, H.I.M.self. Prophecies were fulfilled,stars were aligned (especially pertaining to the Inundation of the Nile River & the so-called “Dog-Star” constellation), what more can we here at Ras Tafari Renaissance say about the birth date, of His Imperial Majesty Haile Sellassie (born July 23, 1892; Täfäri Makʷennin woldä-Mikáèl [ተፈሪ መኳንን ወልደ ሚካኤል]).
In Ejersa Goro, he was born to Ras Makʷennin & Yashimabet Ali, just outside of Harar; even in a Christ-like manner in rural Harar, of the late 1800s.
The youngest of ten children, Täfäri was the only surviving and legitimate son of Ras Makonnen, the governor of Harar, which allowed him to become involved in the political field (if you please…?), as far as, the Kingdom of Ethiopia stood.
** SPECIAL READINGS **
II Sam. 7:16
I Cor. 15:24
The coming forth of Haile Sellassie to the earthly plane was an emphatic occurrence that its still celebrated to this day in age, especially by Ras Tafarians worldwide. Mainly because of its prophetic institution, and Biblical reverence within historical events. These succeeding events that took place, worldwide but especially in Ethiopia, brought about the recognition of the importance of the Scriptures, in real time.
