Welcome to all once again, to another posts from Ras Tafari Renaissance! I, Lidj Yefdi, will bring to you yet another thought provoking “word-sound”(presentation) that is sure to get your attention, if you’re not faculties are intact. If there not, hopefully this will awaken them.

zachor- remember

Zacor – Hebrew word with the meaning; “remember”

Today, is not so much a joyous event or day commemoration but yet a somber, and more day reflection for especially for the Hebrews, and the Hebrew-minded peoples, with the exception of the children of the peoples who also suffered many persecutions upon the day which this is marked.  As an Ethiopian-Hebrew, of the tribe of Yihuda, I extend my condolences, my prayers for strength, of mind, body and spirit and soul, to those who also share the grief of recalling the remembrances of this day.

יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה
Yom Ha’Shoah; Holocaust Remembrance Day, memorial day set in place by David ben Gurion and Yitzhak ben Zvi, in the State of Israel. Yom Ha’Shoah commemorates the Jewish people who perished during the Holocaust in Europe, during World War II.

In this post, I will give reflection on the commemoration which has its place on this day. To so many, who come into the Judaic faith, (in one way or another), today has its significance in there hearts and minds. Why???,…Well, today is a day when one should take the time to examine their own life and truly look upon how they value themselves, as well as, others. Today is what has become a  memorial to those slain in the perilous times of World War II, and suffered nearly endlessly at the hands of Nazi-Germany and Nazism, as a whole.

In this presentation, I will do my best to refrain from giving every single detail of the horrific events that took place during this time. (I will leave that up to YOU ALL to educate yourselves & teach your children along with those around you, what kind of importance this matter has!)

But not only the European-Jews but, many other people were subjugated to physical torture, castration, euthanasia, toil, despair, and many other horrid acts. So, in this day in age, though many things have changed, I can clearly see, by JAH’s(God ALMIGHTY) grace that many things have stayed the same.

But, it should be no excuse to not educate yourself, and those whom we continue to say, “hold the future in their hands” about how to treat people, conduct themselves in a civil manner, stand on truth, and take heed to moral principles.

The European Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period. In Israel, it is a national memorial day and public holiday. It was inaugurated on 1953, anchored by a law signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion and the President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-Zvi. It is held on the 27th of Nisan (April/May), unless the 27th would be adjacent to Shabbat, in which case the date is shifted by a day.

Ethiopian Jews Tried To Rescue European Jews During The Holocaust

In 1943 an Ethiopian Jewish leader appealed to Ethiopia’s Emperor, Haile Selassie, to take in Jewish refugees from Europe and allow them to settle in Ethiopian Jewish towns and villages. But it was too late.

So Rasta, Tell Me; “Are You A Mason(Freemason)?” part 5

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

416951_10152196717220147_1724870670_n

I welcome you again, to Ras Tafari Renaissance for yet another installment, of the Ras Tafari and Freemasonry explanations.  I, Lidj Yefdi (pronounced Lij, Yef-dee) thank all of you, who have supported the works here & your attention and feedback is certainly appreciated.

Welcome

                                                                                                       

Going forward with the fifth portion of this subject, we continue in coming to an understanding that Ras Tafari may seemingly, have its small inklings of a relationship, or so to speak with modern Freemasonry; but, there are clearly distinctions which position each, at opposite poles.  We will examine these aspects in building on the previous posts.

 So, in the fourth edition of understanding the complexity of the supposed close proximity in ideology between: Ras Tafari and Freemasonry, we now have even more firm grounds to either confirm or deny this conception.

Even with the obvious, difference between Speculative and Operative masonry; also, the lines drawn between “mainstream” and Prince Hall Freemasonry; Ras Tafari Renaissance is ready & willing to present each and every one of you with more factual information, as well as evidence that Freemasonry has no place in Ras Tafari.

Though, Ras Tafari Renaissance makes this statement with no apology, unwavering; it is known that challenges will arise because of things like this that ignite argument and confusion: …..

Ras Tafari Renaissance, would show you more of the images, which have been misinterpreted, misunderstood, & used as propaganda to plant the seeds of deception about the King of Kings of Ethiopia, but, we would rather deal with the slander, out right lies, and elementary; “isms” and “schisms” of the untaught & wicked minds of this type of counterintelligence, with what has been found as evidence to present others to seek & find, for themselves.

Ras Tafari Renaissance will further present a case on the “speculative” propagating suspicion of the last Emperor of Imperial Ethiopia, Haile Sellassie I’s possible involvement in any Freemasonic order or Lodge.  But, let us examine this further, shall we?….

Now, the first image (from the above images of the Emperor of Ethiopia) shows Haile Sellassie I, in the decorative apparel of what is known as Order of The Garter.  Now, the aforementioned, noble order has been mistakenly taken for as having a connection to Freemasonic origin.  Unfortunately, for those who hold to this claim, come up short whereas; there stands no “Order Of The Garter,” in any Freemasonic organizational degree, or any other solid information that presents such.  (from what has been gathered about the orders of Freemasonry; there was a listing placed in the 3rd installment of this series)

Now, for further confirmation of the dissidence of the Order Of The Garter having no ties to Freemasonry directly; for starters the orders that came to become the orders of Freemasonry, weren’t the only orders of chivalry from medieval times for one thing.

The order was founded by Edward III, in 1348 , its patron saint is Saint George and it is the highest order of chivalry/most senior, that exists in England. (Its was also founded in a Christian kingdom)  

order of the garter symbol

Now, it should be noticed that Æthiopia, is also a Christian kingdom, in which the patron saint also is Saint George.  But, let us examine how and possibly why Haile Sellassie I, could’ve found himself being apart of this order.  Well, for one thing the Order Of The Garter made selections (post- creation), from those chosen personally by the British monarch, at the given time, to active public officers who contributed significantly, in a particular way, to national life or who had conducted or were conducting service, in favor of the Sovereign(England).  To make it plain, Haile Sellassie I was well-respected to a  certain extent among the British.(later Britannia, showed a dissidence between time periods, especially toward the Imperial Ethiopian monarchy)

To the second image, where Emperor Haile Sellassie I, is taking a picture with his signature hand gesture and an awful, unproven accusation of , (which many Ras Tafari have interpreted as the “sign of the Trinity“; others have given interpretations of H.I.M.’s usage of this symbolic gesture as the Hand-sign of Practicus; which would give credit to Hermeticism, Occultism, or Mysticism. (ie. the Golden Dawn, Freemasonry, etc.)  But, it can be said, for the record, that the exact meaning of the hand gesture that H.I.M. Haile Sellassie I, seen forming, in many images, is still a topic of discussion.  One thing for certain is that, it more than likely, can be put forth as a working hypothesis; that this hand gesture was only known in fullness, by Haile Sellassie I, himself.  Though continuous study, research, and theoretical presentation raise thought provoking questions and quests seeking sufficiency in bringing some sort of answers to a matter, such as this.

One thing Ras Tafari Renaissance, has found quite peculiar is the connection between many researchers bringing the hand gesture Haile Sellassie I, into a mystic, esoteric, or occult category.  One comparison that may of you are sure to find is that this symbol has been brought up, in the same breathe as that of the Kaballah, from the mystic extent of Judaism.

example of Jewish Mysticism, Kaballah "Tree of Life" (diagram)

example of;) Jewish Mysticism, Kaballah “Tree of Life” (diagram)

The word Kaballahקַבָּלָה , in Hebrew comes to an English meaning of “receiving/tradition.”  Now, there should be some obvious questions as to why this is being mentioned here but, here’s where things begin to open new doors to understanding.  Because, in the language of Amharic, there’s a word with similar meaning and phonetics(sound); the word Qebeleቀበለ, has the meaning of “receiving,” also brought to the English language, also.

Q'ebele

(RRR-; cites LOJ Society Inc., for presenting such eloquent & well-documented studies on the relationship of the of the Jewish Kaballah, having roots in an Ethiopic interpretation) (RRR-, would also like to commend A.A. Rashid, for his impeccable research into the mysticism of the Kaballah)

Q'ebele-to recieve

Ras Tafari Renaissance, again presents the case that with the Amharic language being the mother tongue of Emperor Haile Sellassie I, and the obvious connection, Linguistically between Hebrew-Amharic words for “receive”; in the words: Qebele(Amharic) & Kaballah(Hebrew), should it be such a surprise that Haile Sellassie I, would have a very in-depth wisdom in what is known as mysticism of today?  (*challenge for researchers)
