The Kingdom of David Revolutionary Symbol of Lemallah
The Kingdom of David was Launched by the Revolutionary movement called “Lemallah” which means “Upwards” in Hebrew. This began in 2006 which featured the Black Hand and reached out to the Ethiopian Jews in Jerusalem and whose founder is the founder of this website, Joseph Holiday, or Youssef Yomtov, a stateless Jewish refugee born in Egypt. The Joseph Project truly began over one full year before it was envisioned by the Minister the Honorable J.O.Obetsebi-Lamptey,Â whom must be an intuitive and spiritual person to declare such a movement. The Kingdom of David is being restored and with it the hopes of Ghana and Africa.

The purpose of “The Joseph Project” is to make the 21st. century the African century.
To reconcile and unite the African Peoples so that their positive spirit and strengths are released in a focused manner to elevate Africa and Africans worldwide.
After more than 400 years of slave trading, colonial exploitation, cultural and economic and post colonial political manipulation much of Africa is a waste land of woes and war.
The African peoples everywhere have been taught to be self loathing, to see everything African as a negative: Taught to believe that Africa is a definition of failure and ugliness.
The time has come to put an end to the negative and begin the positive. The time has come for us to till our own vineyard; to produce inner and outer wealth for ourselves. The time has come for us to stand and state,” I am a proud African, proud of my land, proud of my people, committed to making the third millennium the African millennium”.
“The Joseph Project” is the code name for a series of activities, actions and interactions being spearheaded by Ghana to re-establish the African Nation as a nation of all its peoples, capable of delivering on the promise of God to Africa and the African peoples.
“I am black and beautiful, O daughters of Jerusalem â€¦ I am dark, because the sun has gazed on me. My mother’s sons were angry with me; and made me work hard in their vineyards, but my own vineyard I have not kept”. (Song of Songs 1,5-6 )
The Ghana Government intends to use the year 2007, the 50th Anniversary of the country’s independence, to celebrate African excellence and to inaugurate “The Joseph Project”. Ghana will use the year to bring together, more closely, people in Ghana and brothers and sisters in the Diaspora and establish herself as the true gateway to the Homeland for Africans in the Diaspora.
Over almost 400 years, millions of Africans were transported across the Atlantic Ocean from West and Central Africa to be enslaved in the “New World”.
Almost as many as survived the crossing died during the journey.
The Atlantic Slave Trade remains the greatest example in history of man’s inhumanity to man. The memory of it can never be erased and so many of its negative consequences continue to divide and weaken us as a people today.
The Slave Trade happened and we must continue, with a contrite heart, to question why it happened so that we can make sure it can never happen again and also so that we can come to terms with what happened. We must also gather some strength from this otherwise cataclysmic event and to lay rest the disturbed spirits of our ancestors who have never known peace. It is the continued disturbance of their spirits that stops us from coming together as one reconciled people.
Those of us who believe in the promise of God to Africa, take our hope from the story of Joseph in the Bible. For we believe that God loved Joseph and yet saw him cast into the hell of slavery and brought out in triumph, to magnify the scale of his favour.
Genesis 37 vrs. 28 – “Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit and sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.”
Genesis 45 vrs 26 – 28 – “And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob’s heart fainted, for he believed them not;
And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived;
And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.”
