do I create and perform musical works with all my
heart and soul, I'm at least as passionate about
writing down my thoughts and feelings. Reasoning,
meditating and analysing is all part of this and
by putting it down in words Jah has enabled me to
share it with others.
WRITINGS OF MESSIAN DREAD
Truth, Freedom, and the
Power of the Trinity
shall know the truth and the truth shall set
you free" (Yesus Kristos, JAH Rastafari
in the flesh)
"There is no power but the power of
Jah" (The Apostle Paul)
Just recently, I was able to dig a little
deeper into the paradigm or train of
thoughts that keeps so many people right
where they are: in a state of spiritual
immaturity and even slavery. What is it,
that prevents people from being free, from
being who they are, without any walls around
them to keep them right where they are? What
makes these people do what they are doing?
I discovered, that it had to do with the
truth. There is something very deep going
on, and as far as I can see this has an
influence in all people. It has to do with
"Because they do not love the truth,
JAH gives them over to a spirit of delusion
that they might believe the lie and not come
The above quote is taken from the Book of
Books, the Bible. Believe it or not, it's
what's happening all over. A love for the
truth therefore seems to be some kind of
first step to freedom. A dislike for the
truth will disable anyone from reaching that
state which we call "freedom".
What is, being happy with the truth? What
is, a love for the truth?
It is the focus of one's quest. We all want
some thing. There is one who wants to be
admired by the other people. There is
another one, who simply wants to be left
alone. There are many ones who are looking
to please themselves.
There are also those, who search for the
truth. They love the truth. They know, that
the truth shall stand. They know, that only
the truth shall stand! And so they start
looking for the truth.
And when you look for the truth, one of the
first things you will realize is that there
are just too many lies. Lies of all sorts:
false teachings, false motivations, wolves
in sheep's clothing. Then there are all
kinds of fear, too: the fear of man being
the most important one.
It is then, that because of the fear of man,
one will start listening to the lies. Start
parroting the lies, as well. Many people
know the truth, but they fear man. And their
fear of man prevails over their love for the
Why are there conflicts? Why are there
quarrels? Why is there racism? This is all
because man fears man.
Man judges man, too. There are ones who
judge, and ones who fear.
When you look in the Bible, you will find a
book called "Judges" in the Old
Testament. When you take a closer look in
this book, you will see something
remarkable: namely the true definition of
"judging": it means: to rule!
You can then easily see that the "fear
of man" is to give another man
"power" to rule over you!
There are those who say "judge
not", but what they mean is:
"speak not the truth out of fear for
man". They make Yesus Kristos say such
a thing, where the Divine Saviour has
clearly spoken out that we are to judge in
the sense of discernment. We have to know
whether one is a true or a false prophet.
And how otherwise can we have this
discernment but by knowing the truth?
So, all over in the Bible, especially in the
New Testament, you see that we are really
not to fear man. That means, that we should
not see another man as our judge. We should
not see another man as our... Leader!
We also read in the Bible, that we are to
fear JAH Rastafari. It is He, Who judges all
mankind. It is He, Who is the Truth!
So then, to fear JAH is to know the Truth.
Yesus Kristos said: "You shall know the
truth and the truth shall set you
free". To fear man, is to let man rule
over man. To fear man, is to deny the Power
of the Trinity, JAH! When a man judges
another man, when one wants to practive
power over another, when one claims
government over a nation of people, one
denies the Power of the Trinity, Yesus
How can this be?
The apostle Paul said: "There is no
government/power but JAH". Many make of
this, that JAH gives some kind of power to
another man. That Jah installed the corrupt
states we know as Babylon System. But that
cannot be, since Yesus Kristos also said:
"I have all power in heaven and
So when one fears man, one does not love the
truth. For the truth is, that Yesus Kristos
has all power, or government, in Heaven and
on Earth. The truth is, that to follow Yesus
Kristos is to know the truth and equally be
free! Free from the fear of man, free from
the government of man.
Does this mean that to be free means to do
whatever you please? To kill your neighbor
when you like so? No. One who knows the
truth, would never do a thing like that. For
the truth is that Yesus Kristos said: Kill
Not. So when you know the truth, that is to
know JAH and to fear only HIM, you do not
kill your neighbor.
In fact you will not be breaking any
righteous law. You will not need that law in
order to keep you on the right path. You do
not need no government telling you what to
do because you allready do it. No righteous
government, no righteous law, will be
against one who knows the truth. No
righteous government, no righteous law, will
be against freedom.
But because not many love the truth, most
are believing the lie.
They believe the lie that one man is to rule
over another man. They believe the lie that
one is to fear another man. They believe you
should not allways tell the truth because it
hurts the weakhearts in their slave trance.
