Not only 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.

17. MY EXODUS OUT OF "CHRISTIANITY" INTO JAH FREEDOM

This is a report from a personal exodus out of Babylon into JAH Freedom. It is a report of an ongoing journey. The journey is long, but not difficult. And yet it is the most difficult thing there is.

When I see what I have left behind, especially in the last half year, I am motivated to increase my pace. I see people inside prisons, inside mental slavery, groaning and howling at me whenever their imprisonmnet becomes clear.

I see how I have been used, abused, lied too, manipulated and tricked. I see how my Identity in Kristos Yesus is imitated, incorporated in the most idiotic statements and actions, and even for blasphemy.

I see how I have been hurt by the spirit of antichrist, the so-called jesus, the so-called god, the so-called bible, the so-called church, and yes, the so-called "christians".

I learned how all of this was never caused by the Creator, Who has called me by His Name JAH RASTAFARI. I learned how the voice of antichrist was identifying himself as jesus christ, and how a lot of people are intimidated in the very same way.

I learned, how babylon is so much more then "just" the system that politically and religiously keeps people inside the global system.

I learned, how we all have to step out of babylon, "the" babylon or con-fusion that we are in. I learned, that I had to do it too.

And so I did.

What happenned?

This has everything to do with knowing who you are. Knowing is even a rather weak word. Maybe "to grasp" is a better one.

For the last 5 years at least, I have been patiently and faithfully waiting for something which I trusted would happen. And I think that it happenned a few months ago.

My body is 39 years old. I have been born and raised by my parents who are Pentecoastal Christians. The first 19 years of my fleshly body I lived, knowing that I had to be born again in Yesus Kristos. Knowing that I could only be who I am (in other words: do what my Creator has made me to do) when I would repent.

And so I did this, on august 6, 1985.

That didn't mean that I was now free from the many hurts that I felt in my soul, caused by hypocraziness. Although my parents are true Christians and they have never shown me anyone else but the True Yesus Kristos, the Divine Saviour, I have seen many bad things in the church system.

My idea about Yesus Kristos was significantly formed by the church and state system that I grew up in. In general, people are taught that there is this Geezus in the Sky, Who is allways on the side of the downpressors.

Then, when I listened to the voice of the Good Shepherd, and was given a glance of JAH freedom many times, i started to realize the two different Christs in my visions.

There was this Christ, who was exactly the same as the one who traumatized me, exactly the same one that I heard describe in some meditations of Rasta Prophets, the "Jesus Christ" of the western christianity.

And there was this Christ, Who saved me. The Divine Saviour. I call Him Yesus Kristos. He cleanses me, makes the fruits of His Spirit grow inna me, He teaches me and shows me the Trtuh.

About five years ago, I started to realize the reality behind the false christ in my vision. I never "preached" that Christ, but I felt him. I felt him everytime I talked to a "christian", every time I read the "bible", everytime I looked to my sins, everytime I.... Did not realize who I am In Kristos Yesus.

He intimidated me. When I opened the Bible, I was condemned in any way that could never be. I knew that this wasn't the voice of the Creator, for if it was there were too many contradictions going on. But still, this intimidatinmg voice did identify himself as "jesus christ", or at least tried to do it.

It was a bit like the temptation of Yesus Kristos in the desert, when satan came to Him with all kinds of bible scriptures. Allways, the devil refered to the Bible. It was a bit like Paulus who writes about a different Christ and a different Gospel. It was like John speaking about that antichrist.

And in the meantime, I came to the understanding that I had not done what is described in the letter of Paulus to the Romans. Repeatly, he urges his readers to "realize it" and "count on it". Realize what?

Realizing, knowing, counting on, who you are in Kristos Yesus!

I understood that I did not overstand. I knew, but I didn't realize. I hadn't counted it as my own. I hadn't grasped who I was fully. and still I don't. But I know now, that it goes so deep and so high, that I want to continue on this journey.

What journey?

You might call it, my personal exodus out of Babylon. My repatriation to my Iriginal Identity, Spiritually, in Kristos Yesus my Lord and Saviour. JAH RASTAFARI in the flesh.

Babylon means con-fusion. A fusion that is not really a fusion. A mix-up. A false "unity".

i knew my situation. I was one of JAH's People in babylon, in con-fusion, and I was called to leave out of this con-fusion.

I was called to not listen anymore to the antichrist, to not look to the sins in my flesh as identification of my spiritual identity anymore, in other words, I was called to be who I am. To be who JAH RASTAFARI made me. To do what JAH RASTAFARI made me to do.

I asked Yesus Kristos to show me who I am. I asked Him, to make me realize that I am this new creation, that I have a new spirit which is my Identity rather then the sin in my flesh.

And I waited.

And waited...

Until Yesus Kristos took me out of there. He took me out of this babtylon situation.

But until He did, I trusted Him on His Word. I trusted Him, because I knew that In Kristos I am new.

And I think, that this is the biggest lesson of my life. That I have to keep the faith in Kristos Yesus. And not worry about anything else. Because He teaches me along the way, produces fruits in me without my knowledge or "cooperation".
