From the lineage of great kings, a child is born...
Though all eyes and ‘hearts’ are turned towards the upcoming Ethiopian Millennium, the joys of the millennial change could never overshadow the Earthday of His Majesty, Emperor Haile Sellassie – born to mother, Yeshimabeth andfather, Ras Makonnen, later to be crowned King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Earth’s Rightful Ruler.
July 23rd 2007 will mark 115 years since the birth of the Emperor. His birth was highly anticipated throughout Ethiopia, and be it then accepted or not, would go on to be a most significant genesis.
Tafari Makonnen, later to be renamed Haile Sellassie I at His historic coronation as Emperor, would live to become one of Ethiopia’s most influential rulers, and a legend of the InIverse.
The progress and development he brought to His country, in the short time He did, and with the little resources He had, remains a mystery to most. With education and agriculture as His prescribed bases for national development, Haile Sellassie in his early years laid the foundations of post-colonial Afrikan redevelopment and pride. He was seen as a father figure for Afrika, and is many times refered to as the ‘Father of Afrikan Unity’. His voice commanded respect in the assemblies of Afrikan leaders and he was a mediator for many a continental conflicts.
He was the first black/Afrikan ruler to command such widespread white/European respect and admiration in over 2000 years. Throughout His political career, he remained a beacon to other Afrikan leaders and black revolutionists, as well as to Afrikans worldwide - demonstrating perfectly, the divinity and eminence manifested by InI forefathers and mothers; that which will forever remain a source of black pride and inspiration.
“The astrologers prophesied the planets of Neptune and Pluto, which had begun moving towards each other in 1399, would influence the constellation of Leo, which represents the house of Judah. Born on the first day of the zodiac sign of Leo, Young Tafari ushers in this cosmic change.” The great drought that had started in Ethiopia in 1889 was then broken – July 23rd 1892.
