President Obama – Spirit of the Rastafari Movement


Editor: Leaders are people who raise the standards by which they judge themselves, and by which they are willing to be judged. Kindly allow us the members of the Eras-Tefferi (Rastafari) nation, as we celebrate this Holy Royal occasion with the victory of our first Black King and President of the United States of America (USA.{{more}}

November 4th, 2008, in the history of the United States of America, will always be remembered when the next Bible is chronicled. This is so because both prophecy and history were fulfilled on that day when the entire world witnessed the power of God, with the election of a Black man (King) and woman (Queen) to the supreme leadership of the Amalgamated Roman Empire.

This is both prophecy and history because President Barack Obama is indemnifying King Solomon, who was a mulatto and the first mixed-race leader of the Ancient Israel nation.

In the spirit of prophecy, we the Church of Eras-Tefferi (Rastafari) overstand that President Obama is the reincarnation of King Solomon whose mother was a Canaanite Caucasian from the Hitites tribe and whose father King David was a Black Hebrew from the tribe of Judah.

The woman of God must not be left out either, and she, too, is in prophecy. President Obama’s bride and wife, “The First Lady”, is fulfilling the glory of the Queen of Sheba who, according to the Book of Kings, Chapter 10, left her kingdom Ethiopia to challenge the wisdom of the mulatto King Solomon at Jerusalem.

The person of the wife of President Obama, Michelle Obama, according to the doctrine of the Church of Eras-Tefferi (Rastafari), is the reincarnation of the Queen of Sheba, as well as the spirit of Queen Nhiyah Binghi from the African Kongo.

From 1885, beginning with the colonization of the African continent by Europeans, and up to the present epoch, the Nhiyah Binghi church has been chanting its motto of: “Death to black and white oppressors!”

The church has always cherished the dignity that good will triumph over evil. This is what the entire world is now witnessing with the marriage of black and white in the family tree of President Obama and in his marriage to an African woman (Queen of Sheba). The Holy Church of Rastafari, Nhiyahbinghi Order, has been preaching since its inception in 1930 in Jamaica, that life and death are resolved through words, and that only love could save the black and white races.

The First Lady, Queen of Sheba, and President Obama are two spirits of the Rastafari Movement because the supreme leader of the Church of Eras-Tefferi, Nhiyahbinghi Order, is Haile Selassie the First Emperor of the Continent of Africa, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of Life, Defender of the Faith of God, who has in all speeches condemned racial discrimination in all its forms, especially spiritual and intellectual inequality.

The Holy Church of Eras-Tefferi overstand, therefore, that there can be racial coexistence and harmony if all people love and cooperate with each other. That was the fundamental message of the Honourable Prophet Marcus Garvey – “One God, One Aim, One Destiny!”

We the Church of Eras-Tefferi, Nyhiyahbinghi Order, therefore, are the champion organ and defender of the causes of all Black people in the Diaspora. We must, therefore, counsel our King and President Solomon Obama to humble himself to the words of I & I King and Majesty as he teaches of the philosophy and principle of leadership.

The King says: “The true leader is one who realizes by faith that he is an instrument in the hands of God, and dedicates himself to be a guide and inspirer of the nobler sentiments and aspirations of the people.

We the Church of Eras-Tefferi (Rastafari) have been invited by President Solomon Obama to participate within his government, when on his victory speech he pleaded with the people of America that he will listen to them for guidance and direction. Here now is the whole apparatus of the Church behind President Obama.

The Holy Church of Eras-Tefferi takes its stand in support of the King.

Prophet Hezelee-I Rhoshaiyah Fetarri-Ashanteez
