✤ TINS(h)A’E – ትንሣኤ – “RESURRECTION” ✤

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).

Though there has been much ground to cover, as far as, all of the occurrences, events, memorials, etc.;

Ras Tafari Renaissance writes to give perspective to the Ethiopic Tewahido-Orthodox, celebration of Fasika.  In other circles of the Liturgical adherents to the Ethiopian Tewahido-Orthodox Church, the name for this observance, can also be called Be’ale Tinsa’e – በዓለ ትንሣኤ.

I refrain from using the Western Christendom adherance to the psuedo-equivalent, known as Easter; mainly because at the sheer core of the observance of Easter, stems from Greco-Roman Mythology(Eros, Easter Eggs, Easter Bunny, Greek Mythology etc.), and the origin of the celebration of Fasika, comes from the Hebraic Passover(Pesach/ PesaKH’-פֶּסַח) & Feast of Unleavened Bread(KH’ag/ Chag Ha’Motz’ot-Chag ha-Matzot (in Hebrew)).

Fasika commemorates the Resurrection of CHRIST, though the exact day for celebration can be calculated from a perspective that is only slightly in contrast to the original calculation.  Through and through, Fasika assuredly gives a better foundation in the surreal conclusion that is the life of CHRIST.

Fasika is an extremely climatic celebration, like the Roman Catholic Church fasting season (often called “Lent“), but predating it by hundreds of years, the Ethiopian Tewahido-Orthodox Church adherents go into a fasting, and prayer period consisting of about approx., 40-to-56 days.  This important and soul-searching, period of time is known to the adherents as Hudade-ሑዳዴ, or Abiy’ Ts’ome-ዓቢይ ጾመ.

[The Church, in her earliest days, recognized the necessity for her children to “chastise the body and bring it under subjection”, as St. Paul advises.  The body is ever striving for mastery over the spirit; besides the external sources of temptation, “the world”, we have always another source with us which is a part of our nature. This is the reason for mortification. Self denial is in lawful things enables us to turn with great earnestness to spiritual things. It is on these grounds that the Ethiopian church has strictly adhered to the injunctions of the Didascalia and enjoyed on the faithful the longest and most austere fasts in the world. Fasting implies abstention from food and drink. Special days are appointed for fasting. Every Wednesday and Friday are days of fasting because on Wednesday the Jews held a council in which they rejected and condemned our Lord and on Friday they crucified him.]

The fasting of this particular, observance in the Tewahido Church-(Ethiopian Orthodox Christian Church) are ordained by the Fetha Nägäst-or plainly translated to English as the “Law of the Kings.”

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 Ethiopic Tewahido-Orthodox, celebration of Fasika – ፋሲካ (which by transliteration and translation; corresponds directly to the Hebraic P(F)esach – פסח). In other circles of the Liturgical adherents to the Ethiopian Tewahido-Orthodox Church, the name for this observance, can also be called Be’äl Tinsæy – በዓል ትንሣኤ.  I refrain from using the Western Christendom adherance to the psuedo-equivalent, known as Easter; mainly because at the sheer core of the observance of Easter, stems from Greco-Roman Mythology(Eros, Easter Eggs, Easter Bunny, Greek Mythology etc.), and the origin of the celebration of Fasika, comes from the Hebraic Passover (Pesach/PesaKH‘= פֶּסַח) & Feast of Unleavened Bread (KH’ag/Chag HaMatz’ot – Chag ha-Matzot = חג המצה).

Now, in addition to the contributions of the Judeo-Christian, Ethiopian Orthodox-Tewahedo Church, we accredit this small excerpt from the Sage Journals:

"Traditionally, the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC) holds that its canon of the Scriptures comprises eighty-one books of the Old and New Testaments. However, which books comprise this list remains obscure and the very little research executed so far on the topic is both insufficient and misleading..."

☩ Fasika (ፋሲካ) ✡ Pesach [פֶּסַח] ☩

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

RRR - prototype (2015-16)

I welcome you all to yet another posting for the celebration of height of the Ethiopian-Hebrew (Judeo-Christian) season as we have reached another Passover!

This Passover, Lenten season is marked after the post-blood moon tetrad of 2014-15′ (Gregorian years) & brings forth many revelations of the continuance  and unfolding of prophecies from ancient times.  This season in the Hebrew year of 5776, Ethiopic years of 7508/2008, brings in the delayed Springtime with much happening in & around the world.

Passover_jpg

Ras Tafari Renaissance writes to give perspective to the Hebraic remembrance of the Passover.  In modern Judaism, it is known by the Hebrew term as Pesach – פֶּסַח.  Jewish traditions celebrate the liberation from slavery in Egypt approx., 3,300 yrs ago by God; during the time of the Pharaohs, and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of.  But, from the Ethiopian-Hebraic perspective, the liberation came from within a spiritual, socio-political,  and religious viewpoints between Northern Egypt(Lower Egypt) & Southern Egypt(Upper Egypt).

Passover is considered apart of the Shalosh Regalim, or the main festivals of Israel’s commemoration to God.  The day commences on the afternoon of the Hebraic, 14th of the month of Nisan.

Likewise in the Ethiopic tradition, the celebration of Fasika,  in other circles of the Liturgical adherents to the Ethiopian Tewahido-Orthodox Church, the name for this observance, can also be called Be’âllä Tínsá’éy – በዓለ ትንሣኤ.  I refrain from using the Western Christendom adherance to the psuedo-equivalent, known as Easter; mainly because at the sheer core of the observance of Easter, stems from Greco-Roman Mythology(Eros, Easter Eggs, Easter Bunny, Greek Mythology etc.), and the origin of the celebration of Fasika, comes from the Hebraic Passover (Pesach/PesaKH’ – פֶּסַח) & Feast of Unleavened Bread (KH’ag/Chag Ha’Motz’ot – Chag ha-Matzot (in Hebrew)).

Fasika is an extremely climatic celebration, like the Roman Catholic Church fasting season(often called “Lent“), but predating it by hundreds of years, the Ethiopian Tewahido-Orthodox Church adherents go into a fasting, and prayer period consisting of about approx., 40-to-56 days.  This important and soul-searching, period of time is known to the adherents as Hudade – ሑዳዴ, or Abiy’ Ts’ome – ዓቢይ ጾመ.

32nd & 33rd Parsha Study: Ras Tafari Renaissance Revelations

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

416951_10152196717220147_1724870670_n

I welcome you all to one of the many interpretations of the Scriptures from the light of Ras Tafari by, I, Lidj Yefdi (pronounced Lij, Yef-dee).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) into the study of the Scriptures.

Now, with that said, let us go right into this…

So,with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have more than likely have come to the Torah portion of Behar-בְּהַר, for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem or Israel.  From the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in the year 5773 this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 23rd & 24th of the month of Iyar- אִייָר‎ . (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) but,  from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known as BeSina Terara-በሲና ተራራ, on the 25th & 26th day of ወርኀ(month)- ሚያዝያ(Meeyazya).  The Ethiopic calendar, which is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church(the other language being Ge’ez-ግእዝ).

Readings:

Leviticus 25:1- 26:2

Jeremiah 32:6-27

Luke 4:16-21

[SPECIAL NOTES FOR THIS SABBATH]*

For Ras Tafari, globally, this Sabbath should hold a special place in their hearts and minds. The reasoning for this is because in a tri-fold state፡ 1) as Hebrews; they’ll come into the time of the day of rest for the Sabbath time, 2) this Sabbath brings with it the Ethiopian congruency to the Hebraic Passover in what is known as Fasika-ፋሲካ. (…which is more properly known as Tinsa’ey-ትንሣኤ), &, 3) this Ethiopian celebration of the Passion of the Christ, (in Fasika-Tinsa’ey) just so happens to come forth on the date that will be commemorated as ETHIOPIA’S INDEPENDANCE DAY, from Fascist and colonial invasion. (YES I’!!, MAY-DAY, INDEED!)

…more to be presented on this subject at the conclusion of the parsha study…

Now, to the portion of Scripture for this Sabbath…

Ethiopic-(Ge’ez/Amharic)= በሲና ተራራ (BeSina Terara)  KEY ⇀ ሲና=Sinai

Hebrew=  חר סיני  (Har-Siney/Si’na’i) KEY ⇁ סיני = Sinai

The Ten Commandments (illustration from a Bible card published Atop Mount Sinai_[1907 by the Providence Lithograph Company])

“Upon the Mountain,”…that mountain between Egypt and Israel. Atop, Mount Sinai, God spoke to Moses with instructions for the children of Israel when they were to come into the land that was promised to them. For example, upon entry into the Land of Promise, an order was to be put into practice for the tilling of the land/earth.

The land was to given rest on the seventh year, just as the Hebrews were to observe the Sabbath on the seventh day perpetually.(from generation-to-generation) This form of agriculture has come to us in the Hebrew word_ Shemittah-שמטה (Sabbitical year[Sabbath year] _is a credible translation).  In the year of rest, the farmers, who were of the children of Israel were not to till the land or harvest that of the work of their hands from the crops. The land was to be in a Sabbath year or resting year from plowing and working.  What grew on its own, the children of Israel could partake in, though. [Lev. 25: 1-7]

A year of Jubilee year was also to be proclaimed by the children of Israel.  Insomuch, as where seven sabbaths in a yearly sense multiplied to an additional seven years(i.e. 49 years) would usher in a year of the Jubilee(a 50th year) to the Hebrews. [Lev. 25: 8-13]

In the year of Jubilee, the trumpet should be sounded on the tenth day of the seventh month(Yom Kippur-Day of Atonement), throughout all the land. Also, in this year every man should be returned to his family. (i.e. debts should be forgiven among the people) [Lev. 25: 9, 10]

[BLOWING OF THE SHOFAR-TRUMPET]*

In the “upkeep,” of all the laws, statutes, and commandments that God told Moses to teach the children of Israel; it was assured to them(the Hebrews) that if they were to keep those laws from generation to generation, they would dwell in the land of promise, in safety, securely. [Lev. 25: 19]

*THIS WEEK’S SABBATH COMES UP TO ANOTHER DOUBLE PORTION OF THE STUDY OF THE SCRIPTURES AS WELL*

–to keep up with an accurate number of the readings of the Torah for the yearly cycle

So, with the portion of Behar-BeKH’ukotai, we will know go into the study of BeKH’ukotai-בְּחֻקֹּתַי  , which will be added to this week’s Sabbath in the order of the Hebrew/Judaic cycle readings.  This study comes to us as BeSir’Autey-በሥርዓቴ, from the Ethiopic-Christian perspective.  The Hebrew and Amharic words for this study could be translated into phrases like: “In my order,” or “In my statutes/laws.”

Renewal of Israel

Renewal of Israel

Now, in this study portion of the Scriptures, the children of Israel were instructed by Moses, who was given the Law upon Mount Sinai.  The children of Israel were to keep the commandments, so prosperity would abide with them.  It was assured to the Hebrews that if they were to keep these laws and statutes, then they would yield abundance, peace, and security from God.

Of this covenant, upon Sinai, Israel should’ve received rain in due season, and land that would produce plentifully.  They would reap the benefits of a peaceful harmonious land and none would intimidate them from outside.  Wild beasts would be driven out of the land, along with those who could possibly threaten the tranquility of Israel in their land.  Enemies of Israel would flee, for they would not have the power to stand before Israel to quarrel with them, and if any persisted they would surely fall.  The Tabernacle would continue to reside within Israel & God vowed to be with them always, to love & to be their God. [Lev. 26: 1-13]

But, if Israel were not to keep the commandments then Judgment was of a surety.  For disobedience, Israel, would endure terror, consumption and constant illness.  They would be scattered among their adversaries.

Sanctuaries would be desolate and they would be scattered from end-to-end upon the Earth. Their cities would become waste lands, those left alive would have a faint of heart, would pine at their disposition and the lands from whence they came would desolate.They would even flee when none pursued them. [Lev. 14-39]

Their(the Hebrews') cities and lands would be desolate and turned into wastelands_[Lev. 26: 31, 32]

Their(the Hebrews’) cities and lands would be desolate and turned into wastelands_[Lev. 26: 31, 32]

Only if the children of Israel were to confront their iniquities, and the iniquities of the foreparents which strayed away from God, then he would remember the covenant. [Lev. 26: 40-46]

In the conclusion of this study of this portion for the Sabbath, vows were put into the proper order as well, for the children of Israel.  The order for presentation to God, was aligned by the instruction which laid upon Mount Sinai. [Lev. 27]

I would also like everyone to note that with this Sabbath being apart of Behar, with Mount Sinai as part of the subject, let us remember the relics founds upon this mountain, which still happen to be hidden from the general public, who interpret & correctly put into place their significance.

[A memorial letter for Ethiopia’s Fasika-Tinsa’ey (“Easter”) Celebration]

http://www.freewebs.com/ethiog/ethiopia.htm

The letter written from a Ethiopian recalling the times in Ethiopian for the celebration of Fasika/Tinsa’ey are to be shown for the joy of the “Triumphant Christ.”

Even the Ethiopic-Christian practices of antiquity hold to a Hebraic center, after all, Christ told his disciples to “…go into all nations and preach the Gospel…,” it just so happens that those who heard and sought to do the will of God, by the words of these Apostles, who were Hebrews, became known as “Christians”,….hence what the world knows now as the “Judeo-Christian faith”, theology, logic, or whatever else they tend to try to brand it with.

Christians are Hebrews at heart,”…Dr. Phil Valentine-EL

…Still Need More Proof….? Sheesh!!! Well alright here you go….

As Hebrews/Israelites/Jews bring an end to the Shabbot/Sabbath this evening (May 3rd, 2013-Iyar 23rd), Ethiopian-Christians will be spending the night in a church, (by tradition; if ones participate by ability) to read, study, sing, and prepare for the Resurrection of Christ.  They will light candles just as the candles on the Menorah are lit, but in contrast to the modern Judaism, Ethiopian-Christians will, as we Ras Tafari say; “lively up themselves“, wearing beautifully embroidered garments.  They will sing songs, beat the drums and use sistrums played by Ethiopian priests, nuns, and laymen(everyday people).

IT IS A JOYOUS EVENT, IN SPIRIT & PRACTICE!
