From the Office of the International President
On Monday April 23 I received a call from a Prophet Montgomery from California. I had met him years ago at the Ethiopian Orthodox Coptic Church in Harlem through Bishop Queen Mother Jordan - the oldest member of EWF Local One in New York that we know of. He follows a spiritual path in life, praying, fasting and blowing the Shofar. Youtube: Prophet Montgomery Garnett.
He told me had a dream that past Saturday night that he was in a room in Ethiopia and there were 3 drums, the biggest drums he had ever seen. In the dream, the beating of the drum made him weep. After that 3 women walked into the room.The next day he walked to a park in Los Angeles where they played drums on Sundays. The first person he ran into at the Park was Jim Marshall.
Jim Marshall is probably the world’s Number One collector of Rastafari and Ethiopian memorablia and probably the only person in California who could have told him anything about the drums. Probably the only person in America. Jim told him that the drums he saw in the dream were Emperor Menelik's Drums and that when Italy invaded Ethiopia in the 1930's, those drums were beat to warn the Ethiopians and prepare them for war.
Prophet Mont then walked to the EWF Local 25 and it was there they told him that I had sent out a call to the membership to raise funds to build a new Temple for the Ark of the Covenant in Aksum.
Prophet Mont then called me Monday and told me he had just completed a video about the Ark of the Covenant because he had long been told by the spirit of God that he would be involved in building the Third Temple for the Ark of the Covenant. So I am looking forward to seeing that video and to share it with you all soon.
Further confirmation: Prophet Mont told me that it was revealed to him spiritually that the third Temple would be built by God's people in the West. I then told him that Ras Sadiki-I had been directed by the Guardian Monk not to seek any funds in Ethiopia which meant returning to the West to raise the funds. So this was Prophet Montgomery revelation and Ras Sadiki's mission coming together as a confirmation of what God is expecting from us in the West.
Almost 10 yearsago Prophet Mont had prophesied to me that I would one day be International President of The Ethiopian World Federation. Of course, I dismissed it at the time. I now have no choice but to respect his words to me. Interestingly, as an African American, he traces his lineage to Ethiopia - a region called Mora (not sure ofthe spelling). His contacting me Monday prompted this communication because RasSadiki-I had given me permission to share the full story with everyone on my mailing list and I had been sitting on it for 2 weeks.
So this is a personal message from me, because I have every faith that God is speaking to our Family at this time - from the mercy seat on the Ark of the Covenant in Ethiopia. But as the leadership of the EWF, Inc. we must do our duty and call on members and prospective members to protect and preserve our Divine Heritage. We also are required to usher in the teaching and practice of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man. That is a duty given by our Constitution and Bylaws. God our Loving Father is generous enough to even provide signs for us - because "the people asked for a sign".
I have my own interpretation about why the war drums ofEmperor Menelik are beating spiritually at this time, But I am going to leave that for eachone who is so inclined to try to figure it out for yourselves what is themessage being communicated to us. Pleasesend me your thoughts.
Ras Sadiki-I came to me (apparently by chance but spiritually by God's designation ) because he had even gone to other members in the Bronx before he came to me, and he decided not to return but gave me the responsibility as the International President to reach out to the ALL THE BLACK PEOPLES OF THE WORLD regarding the Building of the Temple.
Prophet Mont says he also sees it as his duty to engage in the effort to raise funds for the Temple. He is now praying and fasting for spiritual guidance and hopes to bring the message to every nation, every tribe and every tongue just as Christ died on the cross for every nation, every tribe and every tongue.
Who am I to doubt the prophets? It's not for me to judge either. I am just the messenger, and I have already been cursed for bringing the message and my integrity is being questioned. Regardless, I am prepared for another round of cursing.
Prophet Mont called me again yesterday with Bishop Joseph Grannum - a friend and member of Local One. Bishop Joe reminded me that he had sent an article about the Ark of the Covenant to me in December - the article in the UK Daily Mail. So Ras Sadiki-I is not the first one to have brought it to my attention as I had thought. They prayed with me and Bishop Joe read the following verse with me.
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn fromtheir wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sinand will heal their land.
Also read Psalm 2, and Psalm 84, Isiah 1,Revelations 22 when you have time.
Before anyone criticizes, please read the Black Peoples Constitution and By-Laws. The Ethiopian World Federation serves a divine churchical cause as well as our administrative and governmental statical duties. We must put God before us in everything we do, not just call His name in vain. If we respect or call the name of Ras Tafari, Haile Selassie I, we must respect His institutions and follow His instructions.
That includes the reggae artistes and DJ, emcees who call his name daily. You all making money using His name and the music that comes from Him singing about the land He gave us which is in dire straits. Talk to the artistes you know. It is time they step up and support the EWF so that we can set to work to achieve the aims and objects He set for us - at home and abroad.
If we love Oprah Winfrey, we watch her TV channel. If we love our teachers, we go to their class, do the homework, read their books and and try to work so they give us good grades. How much more our Holy Father. We must worship Him in spirit and in truth. That is how He is going to prosper us and answer our prayers. That is how He is going to preserve us and guide us to occupy the land in a proper organized way with all the funding we need to take us out of our degradation.
So He is giving us the choice to bow down and worship or to be stiff-necked Ethiopians - going on the Land, behaving with disrespect, buying and selling Land that he gave to us free for our Repatriation. Calling His name in vain. Nothing is too big or small that He cannot provide for us and He has heard our cries and He is giving us a last chance to get it right so we can properly occupy the promised land. He is saying " Who is on the Lord's side?" Because we do know, now more that ever, that many are called but few are chosen.
The organization has not been without blame. We have allowed a lot of this disrespect to take place because some of the most disrespectful ones are our friends and we don't want to hurt their feelings by telling them the truth. It's April 2012. The entire world knows that there is something special that involves Africa taking place this year. God is sending us a lifeline. Let us get ourselves in order. Support the EWF, Inc. so that we can all do our work to represent the membership at the highst levels of government, local, national and International and claim our sovereignty and everything that is due to us. Membership is only 10cents per week - $5.20 per year. Membership application is only $1. Volunteer to help. Play your part and remember in the day of Judgment, you are only going to be asked what did you do. You will not be asked what did Mary, Jane or John do.
Blessed Love to one and all. Locals, again, prepare to send your delegates to the only legal and Constitutional Convention which will take place in New York beginning July 16. Ignore any rumors and propaganda about divisions and disunity. There is a legal Executive Council/Board of Directors and there is as illegal one creating discord. Remember, the wheat and the tares have to grow together till the time of reaping. Just make sure you are a wheat.
If you need a copy of the Constitution and By-Laws, send a request to me or to EWFHeadquarters@gmail.com
