.......................and the prophecy was foretold by the "Honorable Marcus Garvey I"
who was the founder and leader of the United Negro Improvement Association
(U.N.I.A.) which was located in the United States (I believe it was Harlem New York specifically, I could be wrong)
. At the time that the Hon. Marcus I
prophecized about the “coming of a KING” the most dominant negro spiritual movement throughout most of the world was "ETHIOPIANISM"
, which was a result of the U.N.I.A. Movement
itself. Now Marcus Garvey and others who followed the doctrine of Ethiopianism supported the prophecy with a verse from the bible as follows.
Psalms 68:31 — Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.RASTAFARI
on the other hand was a spiritual movement that spontaneously developed in the grimiest ghettoes of "Kingston Jamaica", the only founder that is known and recognized is Leonard P. Howell(not Haile Selassie)
. Rastafari like Ethiopianism was a result of the teachings of the Hon. Marcus I. Rastafarians also believed in the prophecy and looked to the east in faith
that, “Princes shall come out of Egypt [and] Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.”
In 1930 “the prophecy” rang true, when Ras Tafari Makonnen
, a descendant of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba was crowned Emperor Of Ethiopia
. He then changed his name to Haile Selassie, meaning “Power of the Trinity” or “Might of the Trinity”. He took on the titles King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God, Light of this World.
It says in the book of revelations that only the Conquering Lion of Judah can open the 7 Seals. Please keep in mind that H.I.M. Haile Selassie I did not ever present himself as the Messiah. He regarded himself as the Protector of The Faith
. These are some bible verses that support t Haile Selassies Divinity.The verses are as follows:
Deuteronomy 17: 18-19 ---- And it shall be, when he sits upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them.
Revaltions 5: 2 ---- Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?
Revelation 5: 3 ---- and no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book or to look into it?
Revelation 5: 5 ---- .…Look, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals.
Zechariah 6: 12-13 ---- And speak to him, saying, So speaks the Lord of hosts, saying, Look the man whose name is The Branch; and He shall grow up out of His place, and He shall build the temple of the Lord: Even He shall build the temple of the Lord; and He shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon His throne; and He shall be a priest upon His throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
Now after the coronation of H.I.M. Haile Selassie I (King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah)
Marcus Garvey wrote a statement called ”Rastafari Prophecy” in his Jamaican newspaper, The Black Man. I will finish this post with the entire statement by by the Hon. Marcus I.
Hope I helped…………………
