What is it about Haile Selassie, his actions or life, that made Rastafarians recognise his divinity?
I recently ordered a biography but I can't wait to read it. Your hubs are so informative and concise, I would love to hear your answer. Thanks!
During the 1920s Marcus Garvey was the centre of attention for Jamaicans. He had said; "look to Africa, when a Black Man is crowned King, deliverance is at hand".
In 1930 Ras TafarI was crowned Emperor Haile Selassie I. His name meant 'power of the Trinity'; his title was King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah'. This is a title mentioned in Revelations, (Xian Bible).
It is the lineage that Rasta Fari is from that make H.I.M. very important. His Imperial Majestic (HIM) is from the root of Jesse. A descendant of King Solomon, King David and King Menelik. I would suggest reading Kebra Negast written by Miguel Brooks to overstand Ras Tafari (HIM) better.
King Haile Selassie I is the King Peace, King of Salem and King Righteousness. It is prophesied in the bible that the KIng of Peace shall rise out of the Root of Jesse. I will have a hub about HIM ready for you soon.
