Default 12 Tribes of Israel Mansions of Rastafari

Mansions of Rastafari are branches of the . Mansions include the Bobo Ashanti, the Nyabinghi, the Twelve Tribes of Israel, and others. The term is taken from the verse in John 14:2, "In my Father's house are many mansions." Contents

[hide][edit] Bobo Ashanti

Known as the Priestly Order of Rastafari, the Ethiopia Africa Black International Congress, Church of True Divine Salvation for Bobo Rasta, or Bobo Shanti, was founded in the mid-twentieth century by , known as King Emmanuel, and considered by many to be the Black Christ-in-flesh. Most of its members, called "Bobos" or "Bobo dreads", live in Bull Bay, in a small utopian community called Bobo Hill in 10 Miles Bull Bay. Bobos greet each other using the formal address "My Lord" and are most notable for their wearing of turbans and long flowing robes as well as brooms they carry with them, which signify cleanliness. The brooms and other crafts are also sold in as a way to provide funds for the community. The Bobos have established a strong relationship with the local community outside of Bobo Hill and often invite people to their services. Membership of the Ethiopia Africa Black International Congress isincreasingly growing globally, as their members are seen in Africa, Europe, and throughout the caribbean. King Emmanuel is called "Dada" by his followers, who see him as part of a holy , together with and , in which Selassie is seen as King/God (), Garvey as prophet, and Emmanuel as high priest after the priesthood order of Melchizedec. Almost all sacred songs and tributes to their ancient trinity of prophet, priest, and king ends with the phrase "Holy Emmanuel I Selassie I Jah Rastafari."
Bobos say that "" is the name that the European colonizers gave to , or "". Many see ideas as essential to the faith, and in the Bobo (and Rastafarian) conception, the true Ethiopian Israelites are black men and women, who are Royal Ethiopians from creation birth, scattered during the African diaspora.
Not only do Bobos believe in black supremacy, meaning black is original and therefore supreme, they also consider black women as mothers of creation. Women cover their legs, arms, and head in practice of the Queen Omega principles. Nearly all the men within the community are seen as or , whose functions are to “reason” and conduct churchical and parliamentary services, respectively.[] However, some consider Bobos deeply racist against white people, as well as misogynistic.[]

[edit] Twelve Tribes of Israel

The Twelve Tribes of Israel is a Rastafari group founded in , , and now functioning worldwide. Its founder, , was known as Prophet Gad, and taught his students to read the Bible 'A Chapter A Day'.
Twelve Tribes of Israel Rastafari organization accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and as divinely chosen by the creator to represent him on earth. Due to the stigma associated with slavery and the false use of the name Jesus by enslavers/colonialist not practicing what they preached, some prefer to use the ancient names of Christ - Yeshua or Yehoshua or JAH SHUA ( from Hebrew ) and/or Yesus Kristos ( Amharic ).
Haile Selassie I is seen as a divinely anointed king in the lineage of and . While he is considered a type/representation of Christ in Kingly Character, he is not Jesus Christ himself, but a representative of the everlasting Davidic covenant, which is to be fulfilled by Jesus Christ when he returns as Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
The twelve tribes symbology is based on /Israel's 12 sons, and correspond to the months of the ancient Israelite calendar, beginning with April and Reuben. Some people further relate this to signs. Thus came from the Tribe of , the eleventh of the biblical Jacob's twelve children (because he was born in February). The name Levi in represents the third child who was born to Jacob. Another well known group of this is .
Bob Marley, a natty dread, by quoting a passage about Joseph on the album cover of Rastaman Vibration, was acknowledging his own support for this sect. , , and many other roots reggae artists were associated with the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
Due to their inclusiveness of all races and acceptance of the Holy Bible, though not the oldest, Twelve Tribes of Israel is considered the largest of all Rastafari houses

[edit] Niyabinghi

The Niyabinghi Theocracy Government was named for a legendary queen of the same name, who was said to have a woman named in the . Muhumusa inspired a movement, rebelling against African colonial authorities. Though she was captured in , alleged possessions by "Nyahbinghi" (traditional spelling) continued, mostly afflicting women.
The Niyabinghi resistance inspired a number of , who incorporated what are known as (also binghi) into their celebrations (""). The of these chants were eventually an influence of popular , and music. Three kinds of drums (called "harps") are used in niyabinghi: , also known as the "Pope Smasher" or "Vatican Basher", reflecting a Rasta association between Catholicism and , the middle-pitched and akete. The akete (also known as the "repeater") plays an , the funde plays a regular one-two beat and the bass drum strikes loudly on the first beat, and softly on the third beat (of four). When groups of players get together, only one akete player may play at any one time. The other drums keep regular rhythms while the akete players solo in the form of a conversation. was the first to record niyabinghi, and he helped to establish and maintain Rastafari culture.
Niyabinghi drumming is not exclusive to the Niyabinghi order, and is common to all Rastafarians. Its rhythms are the basis of Reggae music, through the influential ska band, the . It is said that their drummer revolutionized Jamaican music by combining the various Niyabinghi parts into a 'complete' "drum kit," which combined with jazz to create an entirely new form of music, known as . Niyabinghi rhythms were largely a creation of Count Ossie, who incorporated influences from traditional Jamaican Kumina drumming (especially the form of the drums themselves) with songs and rhythms learned from the recordings of Nigerian musician .
Binghi chanting typically includes recitation of the , but may also include variations of well-know Christian hymns. Though Count Ossie is clearly the most influential Binghi drummer, practically the thing inventing the genre of something in its present state, the recordings of and the Sons of Negus, as well as the Rastafari Elders, have contributed to the popularity of the music.
Though Niyabinghi music operates as a form of Rasta religious music outside of Reggae, musicians such as Bob Marley and even non-Rastas such Prince Buster and (both Muslim) used the idiom in some songs. Recently, dancehall sensation , American roots-Reggae artists such as and , and have used Niyabinghi drums extensively in their recordings. Though sometimes claimed to be a direct continuation of an African cultural form, Niyabinghi drumming is best seen as the voice of a people rediscovering their African roots.
Combining Jamaican traditions with newly acquired African ones, Count Ossie and others synthesized his country's African traditions and reinvigorated them with the influences of Nigerian master-drummer , as a comparison of Count Ossie's Tales of Mozambique and Olatunji's earlier will reveal. Indeed, it is that combination of inherited traditions and conscious rediscovery of lost African traditions that makes Niyabinghi drumming—and —so powerful.
Niyabinghi are considered the strictest mansion of the in preaching the ideals of a global theocracy to be headed by Emperor , whom they proclaim to be the promised and incarnation of the Supreme

If you read into all religions you'll find the same story, some so called advanced being incarnates in human form and it's followers mostly believe it's the one true God or the son of God.

Good question.

The least likely candidates are the Jews.

If there ever has been such a thing as "True Israelites", i think it is safe to assume that they all died a few millenniums ago. I doubt that any individuals or group of peoples alive today who call themselves "True Israelites" realise just how ridiculous that description of themselves sounds today.

Default Roots of Divide

I also find Rastafarian culture very interesting & one of the few true revolutionary movements in history, even tho the fact in many roots tunes dreads refer to Jah as the one true "master" I find hints towards years of conditioning like other indigenous slaves around the world infected by religion as a form of control.

Quote:
The imperial family of Ethiopia claims its origin directly from the offspring of the Queen of Sheba by King Solomon.[6] The Queen of Sheba (ንግሥተ ሣብአ nigiśta Śab'a), is named Makeda (ማክዳ) in the Ethiopian account.

The etymology of her name is uncertain, but there are two principal opinions about its Ethiopian source. One group, which includes the British scholar Edward Ullendorff, holds that it is a corruption of "Candace", the Ethiopian queen mentioned in the New Testament Acts; the other group connects the name with Macedonia, and relates this story to the later Ethiopian legends about Alexander the Great and the era of 330 BCE.

The Italian scholar Carlo Conti Rossini, however, was unconvinced by either of these theories and, in 1954 stated that he believed the matter unresolved.[7]

An ancient compilation of Ethiopian legends, Kebra Negast ('the Glory of Kings'), is dated to seven hundred years ago and relates a history of Makeda and her descendants. In this account King Solomon is said to have seduced the Queen of Sheba and sired her son, Menelik I, who would become the first Emperor of Ethiopia.

The narrative given in the Kebra Negast - which has no parallel in the Hebrew Biblical story - is that King Solomon invited the Queen of Sheba to a banquet, serving spicy food to induce her thirst, and inviting her to stay in his palace overnight. The Queen asked him to swear that he would not take her by force. He accepted upon the condition that she, in turn, would not take anything from his house by force. The Queen assured that she would not, slightly offended by the implication that she, a rich and powerful monarch, would engage in stealing. However, as she woke up in the middle of the night, she was very thirsty. Just as she reached for a jar of water placed close to her bed, King Solomon appeared, warning her that she was breaking her oath, water being the most valuable of all material possessions. Thus, while quenching her thirst, she set the king free from his promise and they spent the night together.

Other Ethiopian accounts make her the daughter of a king named Agabo or Agabos, in some legends said to have become king after slaying the mythological serpent Arwe; in others, to have been the 28th ruler of the Agazyan tribe. In either event, he is said to have extended his Empire to both sides of the Red Sea.[citation needed]

The tradition that the Biblical Queen of Sheba was a ruler of Ethiopia who visited King Solomon in Jerusalem, in ancient Israel, is supported by the first century CE. Roman (of Jewish origin) historian Flavius Josephus, who identified Solomon’s visitor as a "Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia".[8]

While there are no known traditions of matriarchal rule in Yemen during the early first millennium BC, the earliest inscriptions of the rulers of Dʿmt in northern Ethiopia and Eritrea mention queens of very high status, possibly equal to their kings.[9]

Is there any evidence that these captives are Israelites?. The rest of your link is incorrect. Just because there are paintings of men making bricks doesn't mean they are Israelites. The Egyptians built their houses out of mud bricks and therefore paintings often show this being done.

The Egyptians depicted many races. the Canaanites, the Libyans, the Nubians, Semitic herdsmen but none are identified as Israelites.

try another twist to render the 12.


Mankind shares the 4 colors of mankind (see hopi). Red, yellow, black and white...... note the 4 horseman and the symbology of them. (the races of mankind)

Now if the last word to all arguments was the math defining the transition of mass, energy, time. Kind of like E=mc2 assisted with describing the missing mass from the dividing of an atom. The missing portion of mass was just energy and the theorem assisted in defining it. Now if the combining of disciplines yeilded a clean form of math, which no one but one idiot happens to have 'upon the head' (between the ears) could that person want to make sure that no sinlge group of mankind is greater than another? How could that goof do that?

I pose, bring the four colors of mankind to a table represented by 3 from each and with 3x4 then 12 and a lowly little foot washer can unveil the last word (math of the trinity; mass energy time.)

basically, how existence operates to the last word could be given to the 12 and thereof forever more, equality can be bound to the name of god (math defining the transition/the process)


ie.... the unveiling to the 12


SO unless someone has a solid argument that i perhaps had not thought of, i think the best way to remove the divide is by enabling equality.
