All monarchies of the earth claim “Divine Right,” even Mrs Queen Elizabeth of England. You know what that means, that means that they are Divine. That is why you bow when you appear before them, and you bow when they speak to you, and you shut your mouth until you are asked to speak. They call it “Palace Etiquettes.”
Now Selassie I is the King of Kings, and the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The whole world knew that to be his legitimate title. He was the Divinty of the Divines, the King of the Kings, the dreadest of those that were to be dreaded. And this was just one “little black man” alone by himself in the middle of a rabidly racist and nuclear armed Euro-American dominated world.
Yet, those that beheld him felt a dread that chilled and cramped their vibration, and made them all, all those European kings and monarchies, their papacies and their oligarchies, to bow before HIM. All of them bowed before His Majesty!
His dynasty is the oldest traceable dynasty on earth, having a direct lineage to King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. The monarchies and heads of Europe all recognized his heritage and gave him his due respect.
He was the first among the Heads of the United Nation, as he was the oldest monarch and the only founding member of the United Nation still active in it by the time Mrs Queen of England became the boss of England in 1950s.
He was the first among the African Heads of State, as his Kingdom was never successfully colonialized. Thus, his throne was the only indigenous African throne, that survived the colonial era.
As a person, he was admirable as they say. Someone you would emulate. He never claimed to be anything other than the King of Kings, and Rastas never say he is anything other than the King of Kings and the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!
I and I Rasta haile him, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I.
Some have their gods, some have their gurus, some their prophets, some have their idols, and that may be good for them.
I and I Rasta, have only H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I, as InI King of Kings. He is our guide and inspiration. He is enough for we.
Messiah is a derivative of a Hebrew word and it means a liberator, a saviour, a freedom fighter..
HIM Haile Selassie I is I and I Messiah! He brought us home to Shashamane and Africa against the wishes of the British monarchy. He liberated the continent of Africa with his war against the pope of the Roman catholic church and his Italian armies.
He liberated the rest of Africa with the successful advocacy, and varied pressures he brought to bear on the colonizers. He saved Africa from cultural demolition and self-destruction. He organized the first continental unification of Africans on the African continent and abroad, and it was known as Organization of African Unity, now called African Union. That is why the headquaters is in Addis Ababa, his capital.
He is the boss! The Conquering Lion of Judah!
The King of Kings!! Emperor Haile Selassie I.
