Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,
I welcome you all to a new regeneration of cycle Torah readings! 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).
Welcome, once again, to another posting here at Ras Tafari Renaissance! On this post, the subject which we intend to cover is ushering in Hebrew Observances, that should be relevant and incorporated into the Ras Tafari consciousness.
Since the inception of Ras Tafari it has been clear that the Ras Tafarians proclaim ancestral heritage with Hebraic peoples of antiquity. Sharing ancestry with the Imperial House of David’s Solomonic Dynasty, in Ethiopia; by way of King Solomon & the Queen of Sheba. With that said, seeing how Ethiopia has become the ONLY Christian church upholding its Hebraic traditions intact, it should hold a critical place in the Ras Tafari faithful and those of like minds to adhere to original Christian and Hebraic practices.
So, in this post we here at Ras Tafari Renaissance would like to put, all that continue to, and are maybe, just checking out the site for the first time on notice. In the continuance of bringing you all, Ras Tafari interpretations of the Scriptures from a Bible-based foundation, we’ll also bring about the basics of over-standing Hebraic Observances/Holidays/Holy Days, and build on that foundation.
As the year comes to a close from ancient ways of time-keeping to the more modern ways, Ras Tafari Renaissance comes to the Hebraic New Year, with the anticipation of bringing the blog viewers into a deeper understanding of what is being produced here on this site. Bringing more of the Hebrew and Amharic languages, into comprehension and use.
For tonight, will bring in the new month of Tisrei – תִּשְׁרֵי .
[Lev. 23: 24]
“…the seventh month, the first day of the month, ye shall have a sabbath, a memorial, of blowing of the trumpet (shofar – שׁוֹפָר), an holy convocation…”
& as [Numbers 29:1] says, the festival/memorial will be Yom Teruah – יום תרועה , (“Blowing of the Horn“)
for more information on this Holy Day & others, check under the NOTES…..
