Nigeria has sent many troops to the Ukraine. I suggest all soldiers from Africa take the Nazarite Vow. I have looked at Shimshon (Samson) being a black African.
The German Trumpmeister said it is a “beautiful thing” that his friend Putin wants his land back. Is Trump comparing Russians to Zionist Jews? Did he become aware of Russia’s inroad into Africa? Does he know Czar Alexander helped Lincoln free Black Africans who were kidnapped from Africa?
Putin has asked China to come save his army in Ukraine. China has invested billions in Africa that can now UNITE and support NATO and Ukraine. This would force China to pressure Putin to make peace. The reason everyone in the world is worried they will die in a nuclear holocaust, is due to Putin invading Ukraine. I lost friends claiming I am a Zulu Nazarite seer and prophet – because of the color of my skin. If I was black – I would be hugged in a loving huddle. Prophets are not hugged – but demonized and crucified! Why? Study the definition of PROPHET!
This is not a aspiration so I can stand-out amongst the apathetic potheads of Oregon who are terrified of giving an opinion on anything due to the high levels of THC they ingest. It takes days for them to decide to go check the mail. Is it safe – now! Ask your Eight Ball!

In religion, a prophet is an individual who is regarded as being in contact with a divine being and is said to speak on behalf of that being, serving as an intermediary with humanity by delivering messages or teachings from the supernatural source to other people. The message that the prophet conveys is called a prophecy.

As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine escalates, Moscow’s growing influence in Africa has led to divergent responses among the continent’s leaders.
Heads of state from around the world, including many from Africa, have lambasted the Russian attack over the last week, with the U.S., EU and U.K. imposing punitive economic sanctions.
However, political analysts told CNBC that while a united African voice in opposition to Russia would be a powerful one, a number of countries will be reluctant to publicly detach themselves from Moscow given their strategic military ties.
Over the past few years, Russia has built a number of military alliances with governments in African countries facing violent insurgencies or political instability, including Libya, Mali, Sudan, the Central African Republic and Mozambique.
The significance of these ties could now play a major role in how these countries respond to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
For instance, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, deputy leader of Sudan’s military junta, led a delegation to Moscow last Wednesday, while in the CAR capital of Bangui, a statue has been erected of Russian paramilitary personnel credited with quashing an armed rebellion in late 2020.
A draft United Nations resolution on Wednesday condemned Russian aggression in Ukraine and called on the Kremlin to “immediately, completely and unconditionally withdraw all of its military forces from the territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.”
Former President Donald Trump said there is “a lot of love” behind Russian President Vladimir Putin’s efforts to make “his country larger” on Sunday as Russian troops continued to invade Ukraine.
Trump discussed the conflict during an appearance on Fox News host Jeanine Pirro‘s radio show Sunday. He said he believes Putin’s ultimate goal is to eventually rebuild the Soviet Union, and he went on to explain what he believes to be Putin’s mindset.
“You say, what’s the purpose of this? They had a country. You could see it was a country where there was a lot of love and we’re doing it because, you know, somebody wants to make his country larger or he wants to put it back the way it was when actually it didn’t work very well,” Trump said.
Some critics, however, took issue with Trump’s use of “a lot of love,” pointing to the widespread destruction and thousands of casualties the invasion has caused in Ukraine.
“Does his love extend to the maternity hospitals and cancer hospitals he’s bombing?”

I just sent this e-mail to Kehinde Andrews:
I am amused that you administered your black stamp of disapproval of Harry and Meghan coming to live somewhere in Africa. They are under my protection in so many ways. As a Nazarite, they have my blessing to go where ever they want, and live wherever they please. I was born in Oakland California, and knew the White Panthers, the legal team that defended Angelic Davis. I am kin to a son of a Black Panther. His son, Malcolm, is my grandson’s cousin. My high school sweetheart, is kin to the co-author of ‘Fela This Bitch of a life. She lived with Carlos Moore. You will see a photo of me and his son on my blog.
I am questioning your idea that you arrived at Black Nationalism via academics, and the color of your skin? How does that work? Do you have a religious or spiritual calling? I became a member of the Zulu Nazarite Church. I have – white skin. It occurs to me that I may own a bigger view of Black Nationalism, than any black man on the planet. You may just be a penguin dancing atop the tip of the iceberg.
I think we are destined to meet. I live in Eugene Oregon. I can get you booked at the Hult Center. There’s a large painting of the Hapsburgs I would like to show you. As things stand, you have no connection to the Black Panthers. I can supply you with the proper credentials so that you can go where you will in Panther Nation, with your head held high!
Gary and Michael were looking for a new convert to practice on. When I called my kin, drunk, he asked me if I wanted to get sober. I was living in the middle of a Oakland Crack Gang hood, who were my friends, and said they would protect me.
“Yes! I got to get sober, and get out of here!”
“Get on the train. You can stay with me until I get you in a program at Serenity Lane.”
Figuring out that Gary and Michael had imported me for – their salvation work – I discussed the crisis I was in – after a relapse! I told Hilary Larson I had a revelation. She was concerned I would drop out of the program. She bid me to seek and find a higher power – soon! This is when I began to look at John the Baptist the Nazarite for life. Soon after, I wrote on a piece of paper “I am a Nazarite!” and baptized myself.
Five years ago, I went to my Jazz and Poetry Reading with a wand, a piece of driftwood I found on the dam of the Blue River Revivor. I practiced my Zulu-Nazarite dance, and read my poem ‘Wake Up Ye Africans’.

Can white people become Rastafarians?
- AS RASTAFARIANISM has no official dogma and no formal ‘church’, there is no conversion process. The nearest thing to a church that Rastas have is the Twelve Tribes of Israel Church, which is multi-racial and will accept anyone, without a ceremony, who recognises Haile Selassie I to be one of a long line of prophets. Although it is possible to be a ‘cleanface, baldhead’ Rasta, most Rastafarians follow the Nazarites in that they do not use combs or razors (hence beard and dreadlocks) and do not practise any sort of body piercing or tattooing. Also, most Rastafarians follow some or all of the Pentateuchal dietary laws and live lives not dissimilar to Orthodox Jews. The use of marijuana is not as widespread as the media would like us to believe and alcohol is almost invariably not taken. Belief in H. I. M. Haile Selassie as God Himself has taken a blow recently as the Lion of Judah’s body has been found. Many Rastas will choose not to believe this, as God can never die and ‘Jah live’. Many see Ras Tafari as the final prophet following Jesus, Mohammed, etc., before the fall of Babylon. This illustrates the wide range of belief among Rastas. Therefore, to become a Rasta, one must believe Haile Selassie to be at least a prophet descended from Solomon, practise a pious lifestyle and be righteous, but most importantly gain acceptance among a group of believing Rastafarians. This is not as difficult as it seems for a white person. To find out how to live as a Rasta, just ask one of us.Ras Mikey Simeon, Manchester.
I stuck my neck out. People called me insane and wanted me locked up in a mental ward. They gave proof I am a Prophet by persecuting me. They harassed me and tried to take away all my Human and Civil Rights. Umbrella Properties should evict them.
I suspect Kim Hafner lied to our neighbors when she claimed I went off on her evangelicals all the time while in her car, I calling them Nazis. I recall I talked about the Nazis of Charlottesville, where it is being reported Neo-Nazi prophet, Simon Roche, was in the crowd preached racist hatred.
I took a DNA test that showed I was kin to the Schwarzenberg’s. Elizabeth and her son are trying to get back their vast African estate, or, be compensated. We are kin to John Wilson, the Puritan who tried to create a sane bond with native Americans. He was the first Protestant to convert a indigenous person. I will forever be revelent as Trump and his Ult-right prophets are attacking the 9th. Circuit Court, about the immigration of peoples with native genetics. Trump and his evangelical handlers are promoting an End Time Doomsday Cult for Racist White People.
The City Council can not ignore me because I kept my eye on the prize in regards to the Hult Center Celebration of African roots in regards to Gospel Music. I filmed John Gainer who was just honored by the University of Oregon and the Alumni who built the new Black Culture Center.
A white nationalist from South Africa was among the hundreds of racists who marched in the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., last year and now says President Donald Trump is his “ray of hope” for the future.
Activist Simon Roche heads a paramilitary group called The Suilanders whose “doomsday prophecy” has its exclusively white following gearing up for what they believe is a brewing race war against Black South Africans, according to CNN. The group has plans to evacuate its members to refugee camps in rural South Africa amid the government’s land redistribution plans.
His mother commented on his visual hallucinations as a toddler, and said that these seemed to disturb him. General Hertzog described him as someone continuously distracted by a maze of imagery and symbolism. 700 visions have been documented.
Van Rensburg interpreted his hallucinations as visions that were usually connected to the welfare of the Boere, the Netherlands and Germany. For example, a vision of the sisal plant was interpreted as a portent of an important meeting, assembly or parliament. Van Rensburg’s visions have been described by some as predictions of local events, such as the death of general Koos de la Rey and the political transition of South Africa. Van Rensburg and his followers have also interpreted his visions as being connected to international events, such as the start of World War I and the rise of Communism. He did not interpret all of his visions, and some have been posthumously applied to more recent events as prophecies.
Wilson was an early advocate of the conversion of Indians to Christianity, and acted on this belief by taking the orphaned son of Wonohaquaham, a local sagamore into his home to educate. In 1647 he visited the “praying Indians” of Nonantum, and noticed that they had built a house of worship that Wilson described as appearing “like the workmanship of an English housewright.” During the 1650s and 1660s, in order to boost declining membership in the Boston church, Wilson supported a ruling known as the Half-Way Covenant, allowing parishioners to be brought into the church without having had a conversion experience.
In November 1633 Wilson made one of his many visits outside Boston, and went to Agawam (later Ipswich), since the settlers there did not yet have a minister. He also visited the natives, tending to their sick, and instructing others who were capable of understanding him. In this regard he became the first Protestant missionary to the North American native people, a work later to be carried on with much success by Reverend John Eliot.
Here is my kin.
Elisabeth von Pezold wants the return of property expropriated by the Czechoslovak state in 1947.
When John Gainer came on stage at the Hult Center, I had no idea he was going to sing a Zulu song. Marilyn did not tell me much about the show she was co-producing. She wanted to surprise me. I was surprised!
In 1988 I declared myself a Nazarite, and baptized myself in the McKenzie River. I went to town and got on the internet at the Eugene Public Library. I was looking for other Nazarites. I found them in South Africa. I wrote them.
A year earlier, after reading all of Luke for the first time, I asked Jesus to come into my life and help me with the darkness of Family Incest. He appeared, and said this;
“I and my Father in Heaven are already working on this matter. Be not afraid. Spiritual Courage will be met with Spiritual Courage.”
Rejected by the local church, I found an infinity for John the Baptist who I was named after. Two hours ago I googled John and Incest. I don’t know why I never did this. I was shocked to see it is a topic being discussed – openly!
After coming into the light, I found my childhood sweetheart again. She invited me to hear the choir she sang in. Inspirational Gospel Sounds of Eugene, is open to everyone. You can be an atheist and sing songs about God. They have always been my Zulu Nazarite Church in America.
Molested children are too young to form a religious opinion. Often, they become super loyal to their abusers. The Truth – does set them free!

One can conclude that God GAVE His answer when I asked if He came to America. Did God visit his Nazarites in South Africa where the comet Lovejoy is very visible?
After I declared myself a Nazarite, and baptized myself in 1987, I got on the internet and looked for other Nazarites. Was I all alone? I found Nazarites in the land of the Zulu that lie in the shadow of the Drakensberg mountain range where I want to be with my Nazarite brothers and sisters – beholding an amazing site, a pillar of smoke and fire like the one Moses beheld during the Exodus?
Is it possible a comet came and struck the earth causing a tidal wave that destroyed Pharoah’s army? The Drakensberg mountains is where the new Exodus arrives in 2012. I suspect the Nazarites carried the Ark of the Covenant on the Jubilee.
I wrote the Shembe Zulu church and introduced myself.

“Trump insulted the entire continent of Africa in his comments as well, leading to fierce reaction on Twitter.
Kenyan activist and politician Boniface Mwangi said “how America elected a narcissist, racist, white supremacist to be their president defies logic.”
“Africa sends love and light to America,” he added.
South African journalist Leanne Manas tweeted “good morning from the greatest most beautiful ‘shithole country’ in the world!”
US President Donald Trump’s complaints about immigrants coming to the US from “shithole countries” prompted condemnation from around the world.
In the US, Democrat and Republican lawmakers criticized Trump’s comments as “divisive” and “unacceptable,” while Haiti, one of the countries explicitly named by Trump, summoned the top US diplomat to discuss the President’s remarks.
Trump’s remarks come as Haiti prepares to commemorate eight years since a 7.0-magnitude earthquake killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced many more.
He had no formal education. During his youth he became famous as a visionary prophet and healer. He was baptized into the African National Baptist Church (1906), but later broke away to found the Nazirite Baptist Church (1911). Five years later he announced some revelations. He established a holy village near Durban and developed into one of the most prominent Zulu figures of his time. On his death in 1935 he was revered as a black messiah. His son Johannes Galilee Shembe inherited leadership of his church. Johannes – a Fort Hare College graduate – lacked his father’s charisma, and had trouble maintaining his leadership. Nevertheless, he still had 80 000 adherents in 1970.
The pillar of fire by night remained with them until they reached the promised land. The pillar of fire was a symbol of divine guidance and was also God’s way of supplying light for his people during the night.
The pillar of fire by night and cloud by day stayed with the Israelis from leaving of Egypt and arriving in the promised land the time covered about thirty eight years.
The pillar of fire produced enough light so they could travel by night. Traveling by night is cooler.
The pillar if light must have some unusual properties to enable over three million people and stock light to see were they were traveling at night.
Pillar of Fire by night
21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. 22 Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.
The Drakensberg (Afrikaans: Drakensberge, Dutch: Drakensbergen, “the Dragon Mountains”) is the highest mountain range in Southern Africa, rising to 3,482 metres (11,424 ft) in height. In Zulu, it is referred to as uKhahlamba (“barrier of spears”), and in Sesotho as Maluti (also spelled Maloti). Its geological history lends it a distinctive character amongst the mountain ranges of the world. Geologically, the range resembles the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia.
Any of you who have seen the popular documentary “2012” will know that when the catastrolypse strikes, worldwide devastation on an epic scale will ensue. Even a smaller catastrophe like a simple massive cometary impact could cause significant inconvenience to those living in the areas destroyed by hypersonic shock waves. What can you do to avoid either – and hopefully both – of these outcomes?
Where do researchers claim you can be safe?
Many researchers have posed their thoughts on where you can weather the death-a-palooza, then cheerfully emerge into a post-apocalyptic world not unlike the video game “Fallout.” Where do the authorities point us to?
The documentary “2012” pinpoints the Drakensberg Mountains in the KwaZulu Natal of Africa as the place to survive the world’s end. Although apparently even if you make it you will be forced to put up with Oliver Platt so the desirability of survival is debatable. But other top researchers also point to the Drakensberg Mountains as the survival spot of choice. This location was first popularized by the Belgian researcher Patrick Geryl, who conveniently has a book you can buy about it. Some other authorities specifically recommend a comfy concrete bunker, but made with not too much iron since it evidently “attracts thunderbolts.” Given what we know about the living conditions in the Drakensberg mountains, we will just hope the refuge from the apocalypse turns out to be somewhere with fewer roving packs of wild dogs and more Six Flags Amusement Parks.
“At one spot overlooking Mandela’s compound, several hundred people gathered to watch the televised ceremony. A group of Zulu traditional dancers with spears and shields gathered nearby to pay their last respects to Mandela.”
On CBS I watched members of the Zulu Nation dancing on a hill overlooking Mandela’s memorial they were not invited to. This gathering began with the appearance of a man in white that was titled a “priest”. I believe he is a Zulu Nazarite, a member of a church I belong to.
Above is a photo of young man blowing a trumpet on a hiss, he too titled a Zulu. The Shembe Zulu Nazarites blow a long trumpet, like a SHOFAR. For this reason I believe God Himself has restored the Year of the Jubilee, which is my mission to assist God in this matter, as it was the mission of Jesus, the Jew, when he came out of the Wilderness. My local news carried the same story which I filmed.
Many years ago I dreamed I was in a house in Hebron where the Messiah of the Jews were born. His father came into the living room where very important Rabbis had performed the brisk and the naming of the child. I can still see his face. He was a secular doctor, and was confused by the attention. I them had another dream where I am walking behind the Messiah I with a joyous group on our way to the Waling Wall. I had grey hair. I have reached the age I was in the dream.
This very real prophecy is not put together as it should be, but, I wanted to get it out before this day is done. It is 12:15 A.M.

Before I got to know Amy Amy Sargent Oles she responded to these words and sent a long distance healing – that worked! School is out. Its time to hit the road! The Holy Lance of Destiny. Yesterday I was to undress and lie down on a table because my beautiful doctor was going to try and unblock my urethra with a dicapher. There was pain, and blood. She bid me to drink water to induce urination. The…re was concern in her eyes that I might be blocked. She left me alone in the room. I looked at the bloody lance in a glass beaker. I went into a trance. Suddenly the censor light went off because ot detected no movement in the room. When we parted, after I was able to pass water, she said this. “If you get blocked, and can’t pee, and have to go to the emergency, don’t let just anyone jam a dicapher in you. Insister a eurologist do this.
Caves are frequent in the more easily eroded sandstone, and many have rock paintings by the Bushmen. The Drakensberg has between 35000 and 40000 works of bushmen art and is the largest collection of such work in the world. Some 20,000 individual rock paintings have been recorded at 500 different caves and overhanging sites between the Drakensberg Royal Natal National Park and Bushman’s Neck. Due to the materials used in their production, these paintings are difficult to date, but there is anthropological evidence, including many hunting implements, that the bushmen people existed in the Drakensberg at least 40,000 years ago, and possibly over 100,000 years ago. According to drakensbergmountains.co.za, “[i]n Ndedema Gorge in the Central Drakensberg 3,900 paintings have been recorded at 17 sites. One of them, Sebaayeni Cave, contains 1 146 individual paintings.” Southafrica.info indicates that though “the oldest painting on a rock shelter wall in the Drakensberg dates back about 2400 years”, “paint chips at least a thousand years older have also been found.” The site also indicates that “[t]he rock art of the Drakensberg is the largest and most concentrated group of rock paintings in Africa south of the Sahara, and is outstanding both in quality and diversity of subject.”
I am the Fisher King come to awaken the Sleeping Magi for there is a comet coming and in this comet I see SION. Yesterday I was compelled to take pictures of me in my hoody. The first one was taken in my hallway where I keep my great wooden… antique fishing poles. Amy Oles pointed out my FB pic of e looks like a fisherman. Last week I ended my friendship with Mecuria Hermes when she deleted our dialogue on the Magi. I suggested we follow the comet to Sion. I told her I was considering authoring a novel about a Woman Magi. I believe I found her. What will be, will be. Yesterday I saw my beautiful doctor who is trying to heal me of my prostate cancer, my groin injury. There was blood after I was pierced in order to open the flow. She bid me to drink a lot of water. I am ION. I have come to prepare ‘The Way’. Repent! “
We are going here, after we go to Holland. This is the observatory of the Magi in Persia. Does this remind you something. From here we will behold SION.https://rosamondpress.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/babas-magi-castle-and-comet-lovejoy/

Zulu warriors gathered on a hill above Nelson Mandela’s burial site to say a final goodbye to South Africa’s first black president.
In Luke 4.18-19 we read of the beginning of Jesus’ ministry in a Synagogue in Nazareth. He stands up to be recognized, the attendant hands him the Torah roll, specifically the roll of Isaiah, to read, and he seeks a particular, Messianic passage, Isaiah 61.1-2, Luke 4.18-19).
‘The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because God has anointed me to preach good news to the meek, he has sent me to bind up the broken of heart, to proclaim liberty to captives and to those who are prisoners, freedom, to proclaim the Jubilee year of the Lord and the day of God’s vengeance’.
The terms that Jesus was using in his discourse were those associated with Sabbatical Years, and with the Jubilee Year that was observed every fiftieth year. In this year all the debts of the poor were absolved, and slaves set free. Jubilee Years were not being celebrated by the Jews in the 1st century, yet the ordinary seven-year sabbatical cycle was very much in evidence among the Jews and Samaritans. The last time the Jubilee was celebrated was in 121 BCE.
I suspect Jesus was calling for the reinstatement of the Jubilee Year and thus the severe questioning from the Jews as to his authority to call for the freeing of slaves, the forgiveness of all debts by the poor who became slaves to fellow Jews in order to pay a debt, and, the non-payment of taxes during the Jubilee Year, which would get him in trouble with the Romans and the wealthy Sanhedrin who approved of Roman rule because it created a upper class, the very thing the Jubilee Year was designed to prevent from being permently established. The wealthy Jews who saw loss of revenue, and the return of lands to the poor tenants, tried to murder Jesus, who I suspect has produced Revelations, proclaiming himself the Alpha and Omega, the first and last days when God will have his vengeance and Judgement. The Jubilee Year began on the Day of Atonement.
Here is the proof that Jesus was preaching Orthodoxy

The Year of Jubilee:
Redemption and Freedom for the people of God.
However, according to the first opinion mentioned above, with the exile of the Northern Kingdom the required condition for the Jubilee to be sanctified was lost. Thus, the last time there was a biblical requirement to observe the Jubilee was about 150 years before the destruction of the First Temple.
The question remains, however, whether according to this opinion Jubilee years were designated or observed during this time by rabbinic injunction. This is the subject of debate amongst the sages.2
As mentioned above, though, today the Jubilee year is neither designated nor observed.3
And now for the answer to your question: “When is the next Jubilee year?”
We eagerly await the day when G‑d will bring our entire nation back to our homeland—including the ten “lost” tribes—and we will again resume observing the Jubilee year, as well as so many other mitzvot which we are incapable of performing until that awaited day.4

Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr. ONH (17 August 1887 – 10 June 1940) was a Jamaican-born political leader, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, and orator. He was first President-General of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL). He also was President and one of the directors of the Black Star Line, a shipping and passenger line incorporated in Delaware. The Black Star Line went bankrupt and Garvey was imprisoned after a trial that was “probably politically motivated” for mail fraud in the selling of its stock. Even though Garvey’s conviction was upheld on appeal, his sentence was commuted in 1927. Advocates of African Redemption have openly sought to have him exonerated since 1987, continuing to the present day.
Prior to the 20th century, leaders such as Prince Hall, Martin Delany, Edward Wilmot Blyden, and Henry Highland Garnet advocated the involvement of the African diaspora in African affairs. Garvey was unique in advancing a philosophy to inspire a global mass movement and economic empowerment focusing on Africa known as Garveyism. Garveyism would eventually inspire others, ranging from the Nation of Islam to the Rastafari movement (which proclaim Garvey as a prophet) and the Black Power Movement of the 1960s. Garveyism intended persons of African ancestry in the diaspora to “redeem” the continent of Africa and put an end to European colonialism. His essential ideas about Africa are stated in an editorial in the Negro World entitled “African Fundamentalism”, where he wrote: “Our union must know no clime, boundary, or nationality … to let us hold together under all climes and in every country …”
Garvey paid attention to and was inspired by Ireland, naming a headquarters in Harlem “Liberty Hall” after the building in Ireland, which was the headquarters of the ITGWU and the Irish Citizen Army. Garvey believed “We have a cause similar to the cause of Ireland”. He supported the Irish hunger striker Terence MacSwiney and helped organise support for a boycott of British shipping. Garvey drew parallels between the two struggles. When the “President of the Irish Republic“, Eamon De Valera came to America in 1919 for a tour of the state Garvey sent a telegram to De Valera saying “Please accept sympathy of the Negroes of the world for your cause. We believe Ireland should be free even as Africa should be free for the Negroes of the world. Keep up the fight for a free Ireland”. In July 1919 he stated that “the time has come for the Negro race to offer up its martyrs upon the altar of liberty even as the Irish [had] given a long list from Robert Emmet to Roger Casement. On 11 December 1921 he spoke of the Anglo-Irish Treaty saying “I am glad that Ireland has won some modicum of self-government. I am not thoroughly pleased with the sort of freedom that is given to them, but nevertheless I believe they have received enough upon which they can improve.”
