IT ONLY GIVES THE STATEMENT THAT BRINGS DOWN A MESSENGER SEND BY JAH TO TEACH US HOW TO BE RIGHTEOUS & BECOME THE SONS OF JAH FROM THE SPIRIT.


OOHHH! Why didn't you say messenger of JAH?

A MESSENGER of Jah in the flesh. I guess that is a little different than Jah in the flesh. Wouldn't you agree?

If you are sticking with this Jah in the flesh thing then lets's look at the fruit of Jah Spirit. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.

I don't see healing in this list. Anyways, the Glory goes to the Father not the "righteous man" who prayed to the Father. The healing is done by GOD himself. That is how Christ healed, because He is the only Jah in the flesh Yesus was/is the Father in the flesh. Look at the verse.... No man can hear the thoughts of men's hearts. Only GOD can hear the thoughts of men.

Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Now in view of this scripture it is apparent that we see the fruit of Jah in men because of Jah Spirit. But it is not Jah himself in the flesh, because these same men still sin. It is a "messenger" of Jah or a clay pot.

Yesus was not a mere messenger. He is the one the message derives from.

Greetings all,

I am new to the forum, and am also somewhat new to learning about Rastafari, but am constantly enjoying the road to consciousness. I was raised as a Christian, and do believe that Yesus is the Son of JAH, but also cannot deny the spiritual significance of Selassie I. I have always wondered why is it that Christians get offended when one likens a man's spirituality to that of Yesus, but it was Yesus Himself who told his disciples that they will be endowed with the powers of JAH and be able to live righteous and do all works that He did during his time on earth. The whole point to becoming born again is to obtain a new heart and spirit and to be endowed with the Spirit of Jah, thus we too can be called the Sons of Jah. Yesus was sent as an intermediate so that we could have a personal relationship with the Almighty, and have His power. In having His Spirit we become like him. So why is it that Christians cannot accept the righteousness of any other man besides Christ when we are supposed to strive to be as righteous as Christ, and being born again, have His power to be righteous? Yes Selassie was a man in flesh and blood, but as I understand him to be the King of Kings and such, his righteousness is the emblem of what we all should strive to be; for he himself was a follower of Christ, and it was the Christain church that bowed at his feet and aknowledeged him as King of Kings.
Selah and Jah Bless![/quote]

I think the answer to your question is that there are too much interests at stake before Rastafari meditations or even things related to Rastafari are being acknowledged here.

I mean, it's good money making over the back of millions of Christian Rastafarians because it is evangelical correct to state Rasta is a cult, outside of Christianity, enemies of Yesus, etc, because it keeps the "support" (money) going.

If some would acknowledge Rastafari for what it is then they would be labeled as Rastafarians too and, in the words of the inventor of Christafarianism, be "not thought of as a christian". With all the consequences.

I just have to look at the hostility I receive, basically for not wanting to diss Rastafari, in order to realize that this hostility is what Christafari wants to avoide for themselves. As long as it comes from the movement of Rastafari it looks good on the CV, because "my Lord got me on the frontline" or whatever, but when it would come from evangelical christianity this would make Christafari homeless and therefore changeless.

It's a sad sad story going on here, a true drama of which we can only guess the true consquences.
