Some might ask what Zion is all about, as this is the name of the website and mentioned in the Bible several times. There are different types or places we can call Zion, here are some short descriptions of them.

Ethiopia

For many Rastafari Ethiopia is Zion also called New Yerusalem, this stems from the knowledge that the Ark of the Covenant and the Throne moved from Ysrayl to Ethiopia with King Haile Selassie I as the rightful heir of this Kingdom, so wherever our King lives is where Zion is.

Africa

some might say that the whole of Africa is Zion, being the birthplace of mankind, the Origin land…besides that there was a time when most of Africa was called Ethiopia, Ethiopia stretched from the East to the West coast in a time when the Atlantic ocean was called the Ethiopian Sea, Ethiopia even had settlements in the Middel East. So Ethiopia was a lot bigger in the past,,,and can therefore (even we only want to see Ethiopia as Zion) include other African countries as they used to be a part of Ethiopia in the past.

Biblical Zion

Zion is mentioned over 150 times in the Bible, it is used as another word for the city of David and eventually Yerusalem. In some cases Zion is also used instead of Kingdom of YAH or New Yerusalem. Also… the whole land of Ysrayl ánd its People (the Ysraylites) are called Zion. 

Heavenly Zion

As mentioned above, what people like to call Heaven can also be called Zion, in the Bible it is called the Kingdom of YAH and is where we will go after our time on Earth is done. One of the main teachings in the Bible is to prepare for Judgment day, how we do this (in Righteousness or unrighteousness, in the sight of YAH…with forgiveness taken in to account) may determine if someone will enter this place called Zion.

In I&I

Zion can also be found within ourselves, by being in a state of Bliss or Enlightenment. If your body mind and soul are healthy, well balanced and you are Happy, then this is Zion within yourself. 
Some say you have to find this Zion first before we can enter the Heanly Zion.

Blessed Love
