The Ethiopia Lion of Judah

Posted by rod - 29.03.2010

The Lion of Judah has been a part of Ethiopia for quite some while to be exact since the 13th century. Nowadays the Lion of Judah motif is figured prominently on the old imperial flag, currency, stamps, etc. and may still be seen gracing the terrace of the capital as a national symbol. It is also part of Rastafari culture. Images via rastaheadwrap, wholesalerastaoutlet, and

The Ethiopian flag posted in your site has wrong horizontal stripes.
The national flag of Ethiopia consists of three wide horizontal stripes of green, yellow and red with an emblem of a radiant star surrounded by blue.
The flag shall have the colours; green at the top, yellow at the middle and red at the bottom together with a national emblem of circular blue background.

Give us the teachings of his Majesty Selassie! For we don’t want western philosophy

3000 years of Ethopian African Glorious history and culture can not and will not be wiped out so easily. What is hidden from the so called wise and prudent shall be reveal to the babes and suckling. The up comming generation will replace the out going generation. And the up and coming generation seeking the truth will find it and embrace it. Because a natinnon without knowledge of its history is like a tree without roots.Our flag the lion of Judah red gold green with lion. Will always represent the Ethopuan African Nation. Even if it takes several generations to recognize its statical, Churchill, cultural, political, sabbatical, and it’s unification powers and meaning. The stone that the builder refuse shall be the head corner stone. The things people refuse are the things they should use. Know this. Nothing H.I.M. do is vain. H.I.M. work perfect. H.I.M.words perfect H.I.M action, behavior, conduct, H.I.M.livity perfect H.I.M Flag perfect. This is a new heaven and a new earth set in motion by The Elect of God H.I.M. Self. H.I.M. write these truths down on the tables of our heart minds and soul so we can teach it to children. They cannot conqueror our hearts mind and soul . Cannot touch nothing within, because H.I.M that is in us is greater than what is in the world. So you change nothing when you change our Lion of Judah flag. Time alone will bring up all things. Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine vain things? Why? Why?. It is because the kings and rulers prime minister’s and presidents have set them selves and take council against the Lord of lords ,the king of kings. H.I.M. Know this nothing H.I.M. do is vain. Lion of Judah ever living Ever faithful, Ever sure, Ever blessed in other words Eternal.
