Welcome Back! In part one of “Who was Queen Sheba of the Bible,” I concluded the blog article with several thought provoking statements that caused quite a stir. One of them was, “This African woman of power, Makeda – Queen of Sheba, was extremely wealthy, busy savvy, and had an empire that included Upper Egypt, Ethiopia, and parts of Arabia, which included the Kingdom of Sheba (Sabba).” She was mysterious, exotic and a very powerful woman. Its hard for most people to imagine that women of antiquity had vast empires unless they’re exposed to true history. In today’s society the school system is inundated with whitewashed history. If you’re tired of it well…you’re in for a treat – “7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire” my relationship/self-help book is the perfect antidote with plenty of interesting history tidbits.
Wouldn’t you like to know what one of the richest women in the world went out of her way to visit the richest & wisest men of the time?!? Perhaps you’re satisfied with the bible’s story that she was infatuated with the king’s rich and wise reputation. There is more than meets the eye. An even more important question to ask is, “Why was a woman so powerful and rich, wasn’t elaborated on in the good book?” Could it have something to do with the fact that the people that wrote the books of the bible were male chauvinists to some degree, if not completely? Afterall, according to them, God has to be a man! A masculine principle, right? Not quite. God was always viewed as a feminine principle, Mother-God in the cradle of civilization, which is Alkublan, known today as Africa. The father-God concept didn’t come into play until the Europeans imparted that thought into the countries they colonized. Europeans were still in caves, beating their women over their heads to mate with them when Africa had written languages, and established cities (Proto-Saharan, West Nubia dates back 5000 – 3000 B.C.). [This subject isn’t the focus of this blog or my book, but there are plenty of content on the subject in other blogs of mine.]
What Queens Bring To The Table in A Relationship
Nonetheless, as far as woman-hating males in the religious sector goes, its a well-documentenated that women were oppressed in many countries – outside of Africa. There were religious leaders that believed that women were the doorway to hell, and some still do, such as Tertullian (160-220 CE), a very influential Christian early theologian; listen to most of the rap artist of today, and you’ll hear the curses they spit towards women. Truth be told, women are joining in on the bashing other women. If you need more evidence of this stinking thinking, you can look up the Salem Town Witch Trials of 1692-1693. Any woman that exhibited more intelligence than a man was considered evil. In 2017, with the rate of women outnumbering men in college education, and entrepreneurship its hard to imagine that the females were once shut down for their intellectual capacity. This type of behavior could only occur when a culture that not only accepts but embraces low-level of consciousness. Pay attention to the curse words – Son of a %*$#@, Sons of B^&*#, Mother-$%^&#$.
Now, back to the Queen at hand – Queen of Sheba! Queen Candice, Queen Nzinga, Queen Tye, Queen Nefertiti, Queen Cleopatra to name a few (all are mentioned in my new book 7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire – BTW). Women played an important role in society by bringing wisdom to the table – the feminine principle and sacred energy was just as vital today as it were during the three “Golden Ages” of ancient Egypt. Generally speaking, the ladies were on a higher level of dignity and self-respect than young women of today; the rights of women were equal to men in nearly all spheres, with civil, religious and military rights and duties much like a man’s. As a matter of fact, many cultures were matriarchal societies.
Polygamy was uncommon in Sheba. King Solomon was known to have a thousand wives [they were not ‘wives’ in the sense that we use the word.], and I’m sure the queen wasn’t down with his program because she came from a higher level of consciousness. She had the ability to increase both of their vast empires! Polygamy was uncommon in Sheba. With the king having so many wives, its no wonder he went crazy. Having your energy pulled in so many directions will have its toll on any person, whether its towards business or pleasure.
When she came to visit King Solomon it was actually a business deal. I’m sure there was a hint of curiosity of his wisdom, due to the fact people of antiquity cherished wisdom – wisdom saved lives and kingdoms. King Solomon had control of the head of the Gulf of Aqabah (the main route that crossed from Arabia to Egypt). He literally, controlled the sea trade that could threaten the caravan trade that had made the southern Arabian kingdoms so rich. That’s why the Queen Makeda gave the king 120 talents (equivalent of 4.5 tons) of gold, large quantities of spices, and precious stones. The queen “brought to the table” a lot more than her good looks, she brought power and knowledge of her worth as a woman! Something that I hope all ladies get a good grasp of the fact that you are worth a lot more than a sex buddy or bedwarmer!
There is so much more I want to share with you here, but the good news is that all of it is in my highly anticipated book “7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire“. You’re just going to have to wait for its release on March 17, 2017. Get a copy of new book to find out more interesting fact about the Queen of the South. Please, share this blog and a BIG Thanks for reading this too! [7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire books are available on the website, iTunes, and Amazon.]
