Washed by the Blood of Jesus

A man called Marcus Mosiah Garvey deceived many people all over the world.

People thought that he was prophet because he always told people things that came into fulfillment.

He had a dream that would start all over the world; starting with an island called Jamaica which is part of the West Indian Islands. He Prophesied that Jehovah (Jah) would be reincarnated Into a man in Africa. He also said to the people that they must look to Africa where a black king shall be crowned. When Haile Selassi the first was crowned Emperor of Ethiopia in 1930 some people in Jamaica saw this as the fulfillment of the prophecy. Those who follow Marcus the prophet and believe that his Highness Haile Selassi is the only true god and call themselves Rastafarians because Haile Selassi's first name was RAS TAFARI. They also believe that Adam, Samson and JESUS are black. They believe that in the bible, in the book of Matthew it says that Mary had a son with the name Emmanuel God with us. However, they believe that Jesus Christ is called Emmanuel I; The Most High Levi priest or the black pupa.

They also believe that heaven will come down to earth and that Ethiopia is the real ZION, the promised land. For Rastafarians believe that all the other countries out of Ethiopia are Babylon and if you have not take up the vow of a Nazirite you are part of Babylon also known as the blood clads or people who live of blood. Babylon is how they describe a place of exile or captivity.

Rastafarians also don't drink wine or any thing which comes from the vine. They are also not allowed to eat processed food, bread containing yeast or meat of any kind, including shellfish besides fish because of their vow as a Nazirite.

They also believe that the male marijuana plant is a herb and the female is a fruit that cleanses your heavens; so by smoking it your temple will be clean for the Lord.

There is a passage in the bible which says that certain people may not cut their hair unless someone dies or you are near that dead corps. You can find the scripture in the book of Numbers chapter 6 in the bible.

Each Rastarian man also belongs to a tribe according to the moon because they only have 23 days in their months. So its the same tribes found in the bible; the twelve sons of Jacob from Reuben, the oldest to Benjamen, the youngest. Their year begins with April the moon of Reuben.

IT SHOWS HOW DECIEVED THEY ARE!!!!!!!!!! They twist the scriptures, thats heavy!!!!!!!!!!!!!



GOD BLESS EVERY ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flippy is out now!!!!!!!!!

Judging from all the disinformation, its pretty obvious that either you are lying, you where lied to, or you just let yourself think that you where a rasta.

Why ? Because your description of rastafari tries to portrain the movement like there's a single set of dogma that everybody follows.

For example, you ramble about rastafari belonging to tribes and then about how we dont accept Jesus Christ?!

Oh boy, the tribe concept within Rastafari is actually coming from a mansion called 12 Tribes Of Israel and this group is actually one of the only few groups within the whole rastafari movement that accept and teach that salvation is only thru Jesus Christ.

And no-one enforces you to smoke that spliff. If thats what you do all day and you end up abusing it and you mix up some weird make-belive rasta thing into it, im pretty sure your experiences will be totally f#!cked up about the whole movement but then again, thats your interpretation of how things where.

In any case, its really good that you have found Jesus Christ now, all my best to you. One thing that Twelve Tribes teaches is that I should read bible chapter a day and during that odd 3 and some years + later studies, i've grown fond of writings of Matthew.

Here's something, maybe you could meditate on these?

Matthew 7:1-5

1Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Matthew 7:20-27
20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Thanks Jani for the comment and your insight and contribution to the post of what Rastafari believes are. There are many people who do have the wrong impression of what it is all about and in this young man's life it could well be that he was deceived to have believed things that were not true.

The only truth he has come to know was that the LORD Jesus Christ has set him free from his addiction of substance abuse and I commend your response for reaffirming that in your comment.

Please forgive us if we came accross as judging in this post.

GOD Bless
