Prince Emmanuel Charles Edwards

without Mother or Father, a Priest of Melchezideck forever




The Black Christ in Flesh


Prince Emmanuel is the reincarnate of the Christ 200 years ago, fulfilling Revelation 5, as the Lion of Judah, no more Lamb to the Slaughter. Prince Emmanuel founded and brought back to the order from the past to its true order in the future, the Boboshanti Order, the Order of Moses but in a new name. In 1958 Prince Emmanuel brought them together in Spanish Town, Jamaica, during this time as the church was built the government had to send them trotting. They moved to nine places until finally they settled upon the hilltop overlooking the harbor of Kingston, Jamaica, at 9 Miles Bull Bay, namely, Zion Hill.

The Boboshanti Order is still situated there today and it is widespread throughout the entire world. Prince Emmanuel was recognized as the Christ because of how he came to us and the journey and the way of his life. He had the spirit of the Christ. Emmanuel came without mother or father, just as Jes-us Christ came — Joseph & Mary were not his Father nor Mother. Jah, Selassie I, chose them to conceive HIS son. Emmanuel lived like the Christ, showing love, teaching the word of his father, teaching wisdom.

Emmanuel lived like the Christ, showing love, teaching the word of his Father, teaching wisdom. Emmanuel restored the church by bringing back the Order & Law of Moses, because Christ himself say, “If you cannot believe in the words of Moses then how can you believe in what I say.” So now the Boboshanti live and follow Moses Order to show Christ that we do believe in him and we will make sacrifice to show him this.

Christ is God’s only son. He is our savior and the world’s. It is time we all come to realize this. Those who don’t believe and know that Christ is the savior or who don’t believe in what he says will have a dreadful judgment. For you can’t get to Father without knowing of the son.

Jesus Christ

As in Revelation it says that the Babylon world will war and make war against the Lamb. The world did not like Emmanuel, neither Christ 2000 years ago. So it was in his time, so it should be in this time now. But Christ came 2000 years ago to save sinners so that they would have chance to enter into Zion. He shed his blood for us. He was the Lamb to the Slaughter then. But now he returns as the Conquering Lion. No more lamb to the slaughter. He comes to defeat Babylon and lead his people out of bondage. 

We must hold our meditation & pray and keep his words in these days. These are the last days. We don’t know when the evil world will end or when their judgment will come. But we righteous Kings & Queens must prepare for it. Let the sinner keep on sinning and let the good keep on doing his good.

1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created

By Charles C. Mann

I’m a big fan of Charles Mann’s previous book 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, in which he provides a sweeping and provocative examination of North and South America prior to the arrival of Christopher Columbus. It’s exhaustively researched but so wonderfully written that it’s anything but exhausting to read. With his follow-up, 1493, Mann has taken it to a new, truly global level. Building on the groundbreaking work of Alfred Crosby (author of The Columbian Exchange and, I’m proud to say, a fellow Nantucketer), Mann has written nothing less than the story of our world: how a planet of what were once several autonomous continents is quickly becoming a single, “globalized” entity.

Mann not only talked to countless scientists and researchers; he visited the places he writes about, and as a consequence, the book has a marvelously wide-ranging yet personal feel as we follow Mann from one far-flung corner of the world to the next. And always, the prose is masterful. In telling the improbable story of how Spanish and Chinese cultures collided in the Philippines in the sixteenth century, he takes us to the island of Mindoro whose “southern coast consists of a number of small bays, one next to another like tooth marks in an apple.” We learn how the spread of malaria, the potato, tobacco, guano, rubber plants, and sugar cane have disrupted and convulsed the planet and will continue to do so until we are finally living on one integrated or at least close-to-integrated Earth. Whether or not the human instigators of all this remarkable change will survive the process they helped to initiate more than five hundred years ago remains, Mann suggests in this monumental and revelatory book, an open question.

The Persistence of the Color Line

Racial Politics and the Obama Presidency

By Randall Kennedy

Among the best things about The Persistence of the Color Line is watching Mr. Kennedy hash through the positions about Mr. Obama staked out by black commentators on the left and right, from Stanley Crouch and Cornel West to Juan Williams and Tavis Smiley. He can be pointed. Noting the way Mr. Smiley consistently “voiced skepticism regarding whether blacks should back Obama” . . .

The finest chapter in The Persistence of the Color Line is so resonant, and so personal, it could nearly be the basis for a book of its own. That chapter is titled “Reverend Wright and My Father: Reflections on Blacks and Patriotism.”  Recalling some of the criticisms of America’s past made by Mr. Obama’s former pastor, Mr. Kennedy writes with feeling about his own father, who put each of his three of his children through Princeton but who “never forgave American society for its racist mistreatment of him and those whom he most loved.”  His father distrusted the police, who had frequently called him “boy,” and rejected patriotism. Mr. Kennedy’s father “relished Muhammad Ali’s quip that the Vietcong had never called him ‘nigger.’ ” The author places his father, and Mr. Wright, in sympathetic historical light.
