Message to Rastafarian Elders and Followers
The Commonwealth of Great Britain's United Kingdom was founded to ensure posterity and prudence within Global International Relations. Provisional justice was accorded in 1807 with the Abolition Acts passed by United Kingdom's Parliament. With such laws in affordance, the British Navy raided ships, with the aformer Lord Dunmore commencing the raids in the 1770's, and worked to end de jure slavery in America before 1865. The Writ of Habeas Corpus Case in 1841, noted in Mystic Connecticut was a relegant movement towards freedom of all within USA and former British Colonies.
The name Rastafari is taken from Ras Tafari, the title (Ras) and first name (Tafari Makonnen) of Haile Selassie I before his coronation. In Amharic, Ras, literally "head", is an Ethiopian title equivalent to prince or chief, while the personal given name Täfäri (teferi) means one who is revered. Yah (יה in Hebrew) is a Biblical name of God, from a shortened form of Jahweh or Yahuah found in Psalms 68:4 in the King James Version of the Bible and many other places in the Bible. Most adherents see Haile Selassie I as Jah or Jah Rastafari, an incarnation of God the Father, the Second Advent of Christ "the Anointed One", i.e. the second coming of Jesus Christ the King to Earth.
Rastafari is a religious movement. It developed in Jamaica in the 1930s, following the coronation of Haile Selassie I as Emperor of Ethiopia in 1930. There are many sects of Rastafari that have developed over the years. Its adherents worship him in much the same way as Jesus in his Second Advent, or as God the Son. Members of the Rastafari way of life are known as Rastafari, Rastas, or simply Ras. Rastafari are also known by their official church titles, such as Elder or High Priest.
