The Battle of Adwa – (March 1, 1896) – አድዋ

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

RRR - prototype (2015-16)

Ras Tafari Renaissance writes to give perspective to the Ethiopian commemoration of the Battle of Adwa.  A history changing event that shocked the world to its core.  At the time of the Battle of Adwa, the African continent was nearly colonized at every angle. due to to the “Scramble for Africa“.  The only two countries that hadn’t been colonized by European countries were Ethiopia & Liberia.  But even with all of this in the forefront, Ethiopia had defended itself well against Italian forces; saving the whole of Africa from total colonization.

The valiance of the Ethiopian people, in defense of their country, became a phenomenal example of unity, belief, heritage, & pride.  The Ethiopian people; men, women, & children, in some cases, banded together the banner of the Ethiopian flag: red, gold, & green to put aside their differences in ethnic origin, tribe, religion etc., to secure a future that would include all of them, on their own land.

The Treaty of Addis Ababa, formally brought an end to the First Italo-Ethiopian War, (in which the Battle of Adwa, was the pinnacle) whereas Italy officially recognized Ethiopia as a independant and sovereign state.  This treaty has been said to be a secret agreement, for more than scholars’ obvious reasons as Italy would eventually attempt to colonize Ethiopia again, in the coming Second Italo-Ethiopian War.

YOM HA’SHOAH – יום השואה – HOLOCAUST DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

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.

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.

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

RRR 2014-15 front pg

I welcome you all to yet another post here at Ras Tafari Renaissance Revelations.

Enduring the test of faith, we seek to move forward and continue to present the audience, who may check out the things being displayed here, with sincerity.  The sign of the times gives ones of many specific regions and mindsets a unique set of perspectives.  These perspectives coming from various ares of study and geographical areas, all seeming to have a universal underlying theme; screaming things to the effect of, “truth,” being “forthright,” so on & so forth…

With that said, we’ve come to write about the the misappropriation of the so-called “reason for the season.”  This being a Shemittah year or(Jubilee) from a Hebraic tradition and cultural perspective; the acknowledgments of ancient wisdom is crucial.

The time and seasons through ancient knowledge perceived the patterns of many things among the Earth’s cycles.  Improving their theories with detailed attention and scrutiny of nature many had come to similar conclusions; even if by varying point of views.

Martin Luther shouldered a Reformation in Europe, which had adverse effect on the signs of the times, or so to speak during the Medieval period.

Along with Martin Luther the “Reformer,” there were many others brave souls who dared to oppose the naysaying establishments of their times.  Souls like: William Tydale, a highly skilled translator of the Holy Bible (more specifically the Hebrew and Greek texts), John Wycliffe, and Thomas Cranmer. (also too many others too name without leaving one out…) _

We here at Ras Tafari Renaissance Revelations show our honor and just do credit for the sacrifices of these individuals.  These valiant individuals who sought to bring about the truth and essence of the Scriptures; even in the face of extreme adversity.
WE SALUTE THEM, ALL!!!

For the spirits of perdition shall be lurking about, even among the simple minds of many people during the next few days.  But, of course, we write to all who know not what to make of these so-called “fun” times; for some people.  nearly all of the festivities and celebrations which are collectively thought of as “Halloween” practices are less than a century old.

fun - etymology

Over-stand that there is always more to a story than meets the eye.

After all, Martin Luther hung his “95 Thesis” on October 31, 1517.

So Rasta, Tell Me; “Are You A Mason(Freemason)” part 3

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

416951_10152196717220147_1724870670_n

So, we continue with this series of lines drawn between Ras Tafari and Freemasonry.

Now, we have come to the third installment of this sure to be controversial series.

In part two, we covered the topics of operative & speculative masonry.  This topic can easily be researched, the resources can come from a variety of places, but if I were to make any suggestions; I would more than likely direct anyone, who would like to dig into the subject thoroughly, to any library.  A Library, preferably with governmental documentation would be a good start, & of course, there’s always the internet(or at least, for now…), but taking into account that many freemasons, wrote extensively on certain subjects like this one, are surely a plus.  So, looking into some publications by recognized Freemasons, is a more solidified option.

(though, the language of many resource material[of Freemasonic writers] can get a little “tricky”, mainly because some of the intent is meant to go over the majority of people’s heads,{or so to speak}.  If you’re not a Mason[ie. Freemason, Shiner, etc.] its a guarantee that you’ll misinterpret most of the content without further research)

Though, the resource is written for public view, consumption or perusal,… please, know that everything there is to know about Freemasonry is even many times, hidden from the some Freemasons, as well. (…the whole “Hidden In Plain Sight”…adds to that notion, also)

[ here some authors who were masons or masonic writers/commentators, to check out: Manly P. Hall, Pascal Beverly Randolph, Albert G. Mackey, J.S.M. Ward, & Albert Pike ] …just to name a few whose works might be accessible…

Also, in part two of this series we touched on the Templar Knights & the Crusades.

supposed map of the Crusades

supposed map of the Crusades

The “Templars” have been connected in so many ways to modern freemasonry that many have drawn the conclusions that the Freemasons are surely descendants to the Templar legacy.

Now, here is where the story seems to jump all over the place!….(literally, ALL OVER THE PLACE!)  Supposedly after the fall of the Templars in Europe there was a growing disgust for their military order, faith-based practices, & what they stood for altogether.  So much so, there were monarchs, religious figures and others, who sought to annihilate them.  The reasons vary, simply because the Templars were accused of many acts.  Supposedly being a Christian military order, it was said that they carried out “pagan” rituals, had become immersed in greed, & lived by their own principles even to the dismay of others.

[vids giving a synopsis of the story of the Templars]

–notice at, the time(07:25-07:30) the narrator says not only Muslims were killed in the Christian Crusade, but Jews as well. Also, near the ending of this first section[something to ponder…??]

Ah, but also in the year of 1492, the Jews that resided in Iberian Peninsula, along with other parts of Europe were Expelled. (including the Moors, which conquered the area & lands adjacent a little over half-a-century prior)....isn't that interesting?

Ah, but also in the year of 1492, the Jews that resided in Iberian Peninsula(modern day Spain & Portugal), along with other parts of Europe were Expelled; continuing a wave actions which had been perpetuated against Hebrew people & Moors alike during the time. (the Moors, conquered the area & lands adjacent a little over half-a-century prior)….isn’t that interesting? [thought: could this have been a precursor to “the Crusades?“]

Yes, the story of the Templars and Freemasons has brought about an inception in the America, supposedly before the arrival of Columbus.

Although, clearly the issues of the documentation present some very peculiar facts, the grounds which they stand upon in principle seem quite precarious.  Leaving the solidified source to the origins of Freemasonry, “still up in the air.”  But, keeping with the topic of discussion, we can conclude that modern has certainly studied to access the workings of the Knights Templars.  Also, in incorporating orders into the highest of their ranks, in that of the medieval system of chivalry.

Now, I know that it seems that we’ve laid much ground work, but I can assure you with this in your mind at this point it will help you in going forward with the rest of this series.

So, we’ve come to the realization that Freemasonry is an organization, pulling ideology from the medieval era of Europe.  Now, believe it or not with all of this evidence to research, many people still seem to bring Ras Tafari to an extremly close proximity to Freemasonry.  On one hand, Ras Tafari Renaissance, can confirm that Freemasonry expresses the values that could very well come to a closeness to Ras Tafari, but the differences speak in high volumes.

Moving on, we’ll dive a little deeper into the symbolism of Freemasonry & gain a better grasp on the application of their speculative masonry. Then, we’ll come to the blurring of the lines between Freemasonry and Ras Tafari.

I welcome you all again to yet another post from Ras Tafari Renaissance:
I go by Lidj Yefdi & I’am appreciative to all of you who have taken the time to check out the information I’ve placed forth here. The things posted here are usually not in the category of the accepted normalcy, of the way of the world, in these times.  I, personally, would like to think of the things I present here as “outside of the box,” “off the grid,”…so on & so forth. So, if one was looking for the average way of doing things which would be the, in my opinion, conforming to a system of calculated redundancy that leads to destruction.

Welcome  Masonicpaedia.org - maintained by Sri Brahadeeswara Lodge Masonic Research Circle

In this post, Ras Tafari Renaissance would like to delve in to the misconceptions between Ras Tafari & the fraternal organization of Freemasonry. Of course, this post will most certainly, again be a very controversial & I'(eye)-opening presentation, but it also will be an enlightening one.

Now, as the world has become totally “spooked” out by the boogeymen whom everyone has dubbed them as the Illuminati-“Illuminated Ones,”

illuminati ambigram

there comes, as usual, the missing links to what hold the truth about what all of this is about.

Please, don’t expect this post here at Ras Tafari Renaissance to go into a long-winded, unsupported, finger pointing, blame game of how Ras Tafari has no parts in what has become the talk of the times, today. [well,…maybe long winded, but supported nonetheless, lol.] (esp. with “Freemasonry,” & the perception of the “Illuminati” ) Ras Tafari Renaissance, intends to present facts, to be as accurate as possible, & make the best corrections of specific subjects when the time is appropriate.

Freemasonry,….a fraternity or fraternal organization that has debatable origins has seem to gain a presence in the minds of many who have found themselves come across what this organization may stand for.  Some give accreditation to Freemasonry’s beginnings in the Stone Mason’s Guild between the periods of the 14th-16th century.(& more than likely around the areas known as the British Isles; Scotland of England of today)
