I believe Revelations is not fully understood by anyone. Some scholars believe it was written by John the Baptist. I concur. I believe Herbert Armstrong, Shembe the Nazarite Zulu Prophet, and myself, are preparing ‘The Way’ that was destroyed by Saul-Paul, the Roman agent of the Slave Masters.
I have reborn the original Republican Party founded by my kindred, John Fremont. I am heir to the prophecy of Herbert Armstrong, and am Minister of the New Radio Church.
Jon ‘The Nazarite’
When John Gainer came on stage at the Hult Center, I had no idea he was going to sing a Zulu song. Marilyn did not tell me much about the show she was co-producing. She wanted to surprise me. I was surprised!
In 1988 I declared myself a Nazarite, and baptized myself in the McKenzie River. No sooner did I emerge from the river and head back to my car THREE witnesses, three of my kindred, came down the path. The odds of this are incredible. They just happened to be on a drive and went to the secluded family campground, and saw my car. They went looking for me. I was in the wood, the wilderness.
I went to town and got on the internet at the Eugene Public Library. I was looking for other Nazarites. I found them in South Africa. I wrote them.
A year earlier, after reading all of Luke for the first time, I asked Jesus to come into my life and help me with the darkness of Family Incest. He appeared, and said this;
“I and my Father in Heaven are already working on this matter. Be not afraid. Spiritual Courage will be met with Spiritual Courage.”
Rejected by the local church, I found an infinity for John the Baptist who I was named after. Two hours ago I googled John and Incest. I don’t know why I never did this. I was shocked to see it is a topic being discussed – openly!
After coming into the light, I found my childhood sweetheart again. She invited me to hear the choir she sang in. Inspirational Gospel Sounds of Eugene, is open to everyone. You can be an atheist and sing songs about God. They have always been my Zulu Nazarite Church in America.
Molested children are too young to form a religious opinion. Often, they become super loyal to their abusers. The Truth – does set them free!
At Kenny Reed’s Jazz and Poetry readings, I read my poem ‘Wake Up Ye Africans’ and did a version of the dance you see performed by the men in white.
Isaiah Mloyiswa Mdliwamafa Shembe (c.1865– 2 May 1935), was the founder of the Ibandla lamaNazaretha, South Africa, which was the largest African-initiated church in Africa during his lifetime. A self-styled prophet who claimed to have been sent directly by God, Shembe started his religious career as an itinerant evangelist and faith healer in 1910. Within ten years he had built up a large following in Natal with dozens of congregations across the province. Although the Nazarites were eventually eclipsed in size by several other Zionist Churches, the Nazarite church eventually had well over one million members before it began to splinter into competing groups in the 1980s.
In addition to his preaching and healing, Shembe was known for composing numerous Zulu hymns and sacred dances, for creating sacred costumes that combined Zulu and European clothing styles, for developing a new liturgical calendar (that omitted Christmas, Esters, Sunday worshiping, ), and for dietary laws that included a restriction against eating chicken, pork and other unclean foods as found in the Old Testament of the Bible. He advocated worship on the biblical Sabbath rather than on Sunday. Associating Sunday worship with the Jesus of the white missionaries, he chose to identify instead with the Sabbath of God, Jehovah. He saw the Sabbath as essential to the wholeness and well-being of Africans.
“For seven women will take hold of one man in that day, saying, “We will eat our own bread and wear our own clothes, only let us be called by your name; take away our reproach!” 2In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel. 3It will come about that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy– everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem.…”
“Seven women will take hold of one man in that day” What does this mean?
When Jesus told the Samaritan Woman at the well that she had five husbands, he explained how this was possible according to the Laws of God. She then went amongst her people and BROADCAST the good news. This one man had seven wives. It is my intent to revive the Radio Broadcasting of Armstrong’s Message about the End-time Elijah.
Last night a woman came to me in a dream and once again had my friend’s phone dial my phone – all by itself – because she was in danger. Chris became a Nazarite in 1994. We agreed we are not afraid of ISIS who claim Jesus will come save them in their End-Time. This will not be the case. Someone has to say so, and stop being afraid. We are not afraid. In the sixties we took on the most powerful nation on earth that was bombing and terrorizing the People of Vietnam – in the name of Jesus! You reap what you sew!
Christine and I just agreed to be WITNESSES for the Light of God. What is in a name? She has agreed to record her visions. We have reborn the RADIO CHURCH OF GOD! We are not associated with any church or anyone who claims they inherited Armstrong’s church. We are DIRECT BROADCASTERs – of THE TRUTH!

After posting this my ministry was – out the door!
“Do you believe Herbert Armstrong was an apostle and the Elijah of the last days.” Because so many new contacts seem very interested in this topic—and we have answered it so often on an individual basis—it makes sense to address the question comprehensively in this Monthly Letter for all who are yet seeking an answer.
In October 1933, a small 100-watt radio station in Eugene, Oregon, KORE, offered free time to Armstrong for a morning devotional, a 15-minute time slot shared by other local ministers. After positive responses from listeners, the station owner let Armstrong start a new program of his own. On the first Sunday in 1934, the Radio Church of God first aired. These broadcasts eventually became known as The World Tomorrow of the future Worldwide Church of God. Shortly thereafter, in February, 1934, Armstrong began the publication of The Plain Truth, which started out as a church bulletin
KORE is Eugene’s oldest radio station. It originally signed on from Portland in 1927, but moved to Springfield a few months later. Originally a full-service radio station, it switched to country in 1970 and adopted its current Christian format in 1973.
John 4 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman
4 Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John— 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples.3 So he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee.
4 Now he had to go through Samaria. 5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon.
7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])
10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”
16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”
17 “I have no husband,” she replied.
Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. 18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”
19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”
21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”
26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”
Marion Harris was a vaudeville and revue headliner, famed for her renditions of jazz songs. She began her recording career in 1916 performing such standards as “Look for the Silver Lining”, “I Ain’t Got Nobody Much”, “After You’ve Gone” and “The Man I Love”. In 1929 she turned down an offer from Universal to substitute her voice for a film player…. See full bio »
|With the move, the station also received new call letters…KORE. J. Raleigh Wildman of Springfield was reportedly Eugene’s first salaried chief engineer and disc jockey with KEGH-KORE during this period of time. The partnership of Hill and Phillips also owned KIDO, Boise, Idaho, the first full-time commercial station in that market on 1000 KC with 1,000 watts of power.Somewhere along the way, KORE changed dial position to 1420 KC. In 1930 the only radio station on the air in Eugene was KORE with 100 watts of power at 1420 Kilocycles on the AM dial. KORE shared the dial position with Portland station KXL, who would eventually move to 750 Kilocycles. By the late ‘30’s the Hill-Phillips partnership dissolved and Hill kept KORE in Eugene with Phillips getting KIDO in Boise. Early station personalities included Chief Engineer Wildman, Tom Hall, Program Director Day Foster, Stan Miller, Ted Charles and Rush Hughes.Hall left KORE to work in Walla Walla, Washington, Foster went to Portland but eventually returned to join Eugene Attorney Iriv Kincaid to co-found KASH, but was killed in an auto accident before he could take an active role in that station. Miller left for KIRO in Seattle, Charles departed for KAST in Astoria, OR. but later returned to run a frozen foods business (King Charles), Hughes left KORE to work for the Mutual Broadcasting Network.Some of the early programming included live talent show remote from the McDonald Theater, a Man-on-the-street interview with George Herbert, wrestling matches broadcast from the Eugene Armory and remote broadcast of U of O football games from Hayward Field with sportscaster Day Foster.Violet Hill, Frank Hill’s wife took an early role in station programming and operations in the ‘30’s and personally selected and purchased every record at the station at that time. She also was responsible for their cataloguing and filing as well as monitoring the station broadcasts for poor musical selection, miss- pronounced words or other problems. According to the memoirs of Ted Charles, she would bring these matters to the attention of the staff with a friendly informal note. The KORE phone number was the single digit “3” according to “Early Day Broadcasting in Lane County“About 1936 KORE moved from downtown Eugene to a new location in the remodeled facilities of what had been the Eugene Country Club at 2600 Willamette, on the southern edge of the city. Play It Again Sports sits at the approximate location of the studio building and the 175 foot self supporting tower was just to the North about where the Subway Sandwich shop is located in the little shopping plaza on the West side of Willamette Street..In 1938 Dolph Janes joined the station as a part-time newscaster while still a student at the University of Oregon. Dolph would later leave KORE for a full time Job in Bend at KBND. He was replaced by Duke Young who would later move on to start his own station, KFMY-FM. Dolph returned from Bend, did a stint in the Army and returned to KORE as News Director in 1948.In 1941, the North America Broadcast Radio Agreement required the frequency change of 802 of the 893 AM stations on the air at that time. KORE was moved up the dial by 30 Kilocycles to 1450. They were also granted an increase in power, 1000 watts daytime and 250 watts night. Station personnel of that era included Production Manager Day Foster, Traffic Manager Marjorie Jackson, Chief Engineer Harold Gander, Van Shannow, Stan Miller and Jack McCarthy. Station Manager in the ‘40’s was Lionel Trommilitz, Laura Plank hosted a women’s show on KORE and later at KASH, Bruce Nidever was a staff announcer and Floyd Viken replaced Gander as Chief Engineer.|
