♔ Coronation Day – Nov. 2, 1930 – “Day of the LORD” ♔

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

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 commemorates the Coronation & Wedding of His Imperial Majesty & Her Imperial Highness of Ethiopia.  Ras Tafari, holds this day in history as fulfillment of Scripture, & the beginning of the redemption of the children of Israel.  On November 2nd, 1930, the coronation of Emperor Haile Selassie I and Empress Menen ushered in a new wave of pride in the black world.

Even before and during the inception of the League of Nations (now known widely as the United Nations); Not even the election of Barack Obama can be compared in scope with the coronation: Ethiopia had at the time never been occupied by a foreign power and remained the only uncolonized territory on the African continent. The nobility of the Ethiopian court and the respect it commanded through the League of Nations–and the success with which its head negotiated the hostile waters of the international political scene post-WWI, –– was lost on few.

Critically acclaimed National Geographic published an issue with the coronation as the cover story and lavished accolades onto the monarch in a way that was unprecedented in talking about Africans. Indeed, many attempts were made by media to discredit Selassie’s “blackness” – after all he was a descendant of King Solomon!

Custodianship of the popular opinion of Haile Selassie has gradually moved towards the Ras Tafari movement, as the movement itself has gained more freedoms, not in the least through the spread of Reggae music. This tradition has proved very efficient in disseminating basic knowledge to the more crucial information given of & about Selassie into popular conscience, especially in the Caribbean.  Just as old Ethiopians could swear on Selassie as being referred to as Janhoy – (meaning the Elephant, as in the Emperor who is greater than the King of the jungle, the Lion), throughout the English-speaking parts of the region it is common to substitute “God knows” with “Selassie I know.” Iconic images of His Imperial Majesty can be found virtually anywhere.

Adjectives abound when discussing the long-reigning monarch; his political legacy is complex. But even his detractors tend to credit him with, for better or worse, ushering Ethiopia into the 20th century.

May Day – Independence Day – 05.05.1941 (Imperial Ethiopia)

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

 

Ras Tafari Renaissance writes to give perspective to the on the Imperial Ethiopian Independence day commemoration.  Imperial Ethiopia, should be the parallel path that any Ras Tafarian should look to walk(trod).  His Imperial Majesty Haile Sellassie I and Her Imperial Majesty Menen Asfaw, showed the poise of ice cubes, while their country was yet, cleverly planned on being relieved of his(Haile Sellassie I’s) guidance, by unnatural powers.  But, by the impeccable strategy, honesty, courage, & just cause-and-effect action….Ethiopia, has remained an Unconquerable Land to the colonist regime, to this date.  So, here on 5th of May, Imperial Ethiopian celebrates its Independence as a memorial, and triumph over the Fascist, & colonial ex-ruling powers.

On 5 May 1941, exactly five years after Addis Ababa fell to Mussolini‘s troops, Emperor Haile Selassie was re-installed on the Ethiopian throne. He reentered the city through streets lined with black and white soldiers, having fought his way back against a determined Italian army with Major Orde Wingate’s Gideon Force and his own Ethiopian ‘Patriots”.

Haile Sellassie I, had made an impassioned appeal to the League of Nations on 30 June 1936, which gained great support with the United States and Russia. However, many other League of Nations members, especially Britain and France, continued to recognize the Italian occupation/possession of Ethiopia.

In 1935 Italian soldiers commanded by Marshal Emilio De Bono invaded Ethiopia in what is known as the Second Italo-Abyssinian War. The war lasted seven months before an Italian victory was declared. The invasion was condemned by the League of Nations, though not much was done to end the hostility.

During the conflict, Italy used mustard gas, ignoring the Geneva Protocol that it had signed seven years earlier. The Italian military dropped mustard gas in bombs, sprayed it from airplanes, and spread it in powdered form on the ground. 150,000 chemical casualties were reported, mostly from mustard gas. In the aftermath of the war Italy annexed Ethiopia, uniting it with Italy’s other colonies in eastern Africa to form the new colony of Italian East Africa, and Vittorio Emmanuel III adopted the title “Emperor of Abyssinia.”

On 10 June 1940, Italy declared war on the United Kingdom and France, as France was in the process of being conquered by Germany at the time and Benito Mussolini wished to expand Italy’s colonial holdings. An Italian invasion of British Somaliland, in August 1940 was successful, but the war turned against Italy afterward. Haile Sellassie I returned to Ethiopia from England to help rally the resistance. The British began their own invasion in January 1941, and the last organized Italian resistance in Italian East Africa surrendered in November 1941. The British restored Ethiopia’s independence.

November 2nd, 1930

His/Her Imperial Majesties‘ wedding & ascent to the Ethiopian thrones of heraldy in the Empire, brought about questions and inquiries about Biblical prophecy among many other things.  This intensified curiosity on one point, and knowledge of history also, prophetic fulfillment brought 72 nations to the ceremonies held in Ethiopia, of year 1930.

Emperor Haile Sellassie I’s coronation was a fulfillment of the the 400 year prophecy of the children of Abraham.  (which more specifically was fulfilled at the H.I.M.’s birth [July 23rd, 1892])

[Gen. 15:13]

1492 A.D. – 1892 A.D. = 400 years

edict of expulsion of the moors and jews (moorish spain)

During this period between the years of 1492 until 1892, the children of Abraham, from our research and study here at RRR finds that there was much tribulation. (including the Expulsion from Europe, the Fall of Timbuktu, Sognhay & Ghana, the trans-Atlantic slave trade, etc.)

National Geographic published an issue with the coronation as the cover story and lavished accolades onto the monarch in a way that was unprecedented in talking about Africans. Indeed, many attempts were made by media to discredit Selassie’s “blackness”–after all he was a descendant of King Solomon!
