Icon of Christ in His Kingly Character

a spiritual meditation

WWW, February 2011 - Everyone who looks at the above picture (click for enlargement) will answer "Haile Selassie", when asked "who is this?". There's a little problem, though: this icon which was found in a church at Mnt Sinai was allegedly created in the 6th century. Is there a significance behind this fact?

Personally, I believe that the Ethiopian Emperor is an Icon of Christ in His Kingly Character. You could say, in short, a living Psalm talking about the coming reign of Yesus Kristos as He will end Babylon just like it is foretold. An icon is a reminder, a symbol of something or Someone. Just look to your own computer and it is very clear just what an ikon is.

Now, to this ancient painting...

It is evident that there is more than a similarity between the Ethiopian Emperor and this painting. Unless it turns out that this is abig hoax (which I doubt considering the fact that I came across this painting by means of a non-Rasta who posted it), it is a striking confirmation of the fact that yes indeed, the Ethiopian Emperor has this spiritual function of bein an ikon of Christ in His Kingly Character.
