R U Woke? Part 23


The Minor Prophets

by Pastor Jim Jester

May 28, 2023


Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi [My people]; and to your sisters, Ruhamah [Mercy is shown].

2 Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts; 3 Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst.

4 And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms. 5 For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.

6 Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths. 7 And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now.


First of all, the minor prophets are not “minors” — they are adults. [I couldn’t help it…] They are called minors simply because of the length of their writings. They each are just as significant and important as the major prophets. And, like in a church, we all have our contributions to the whole.

As you will see, not all of them have anything to say of racial significance; other than what has been translated as the word “Jew,” which is a racial term. Of the twelve minor prophets, only one contains the word “Jew;” and of course there it is a wrong translation.


Hosea witnessed a long and sad part of Israel’s history. He lived in the kingdom of Samaria and prophesied from 760 to 710 BC, with the Assyrian captivity of the ten northern tribes taking place in 721 BC.

In this study we should consider two subjects together: the prophetic meaning behind racial Israel, and the personal life of Hosea the prophet, much of which is speculation because we have no direct statements about his marriage.

God’s first words to Hosea are shocking: “Go, take to yourself a wife of harlotry and have children of harlotry, for the land commits great harlotry by forsaking the LORD.” (Hos. 1:2, RSV)

God is not condoning harlotry here, but is using this life illustration to show what His people have done to Him. While harlotry generally means sexual unfaithfulness, it also includes other types of unfaithfulness to God at the spiritual level. Notice that the whole land — all the people — were forsaking the Lord. Doesn’t this sound just like today? Also notice the outcome, that Hosea went and took Gomer and she bore him a son (v. 3).

God’s response: “Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will punish the house of Jehu for the blood of Jezreel, and I will put an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel.” (Hos. 1:4, RSV)

Jezreel means “God will scatter” (referring to Israel). It phonetically sounds almost identical to the word “Israel.” Israel was about to be carried off into Assyrian captivity and scattered across Asia and Europe.

Gomer also gave Hosea a daughter, Loruhamah; and God responded: “Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.” (Hos. 1:6)

Loruhamah means “not an object of mercy or gracious favor.” The object is predominately Israel. But could the object also be this daughter, Loruhamah? Could it be that Gomer (like the type, Israel) had gone out and cheated on Hosea? If so, this child was not of Hosea, but of the wrong racial seed; and this is why she too would not be an object of mercy from God.

Now, we don’t know much about Gomer. She must have been thankful that someone would marry her. Perhaps Hosea hoped that he could reform her. This may well have been a failure; after all, since she was a type, or figure, of the Israel nation that was unfaithful to her God, then we would expect such actions from her.

Gomer gave birth to another son, Loammi. God’s response was: “Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.”(Hos. 1:9)

Loammi means “once my people.” God had cast off Israel as a nation; although He still had mercy on the house of Judah. Now He says “not my people.” Could this also apply to this son, Loammi? Did Gomer, as the type, play the harlot again? Was the offspring of Gomer an unholy mixture in God’s eyes that He could not be a God to? It would seem likely; and it would fit the pattern.

Then, in beautiful contrast, comes this prophecy that refers to us today:

Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, ye are the sons of the living God. (Hos. 1:10)

In this day of blindness and confusion, let it be known that we who come by way of Adam, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) are the chosen race. It is our duty as servants of the most High to: “Say to your brother, ‘My people,’ and to your sister, ‘She has obtained pity.’” (Hos. 2:1, RSV) We will plant the seed that they (the White folk) are Israel, not that brood of people known as jews.

It appears that Gomer’s unfaithfulness to Hosea was some time after their marriage; and there is the possibility that she was a slave working as a temple prostitute in Samaria. The prophet loved her enough to buy her back for half the price of a slave; as seen in chapter three:

Then said the LORD unto me, Go yet, love a woman [Gomer] beloved of her friend [Hosea, the estranged husband], yet an adulteress, according to the love of the LORD toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine. 2 So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley: 3 And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee.

4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: 5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days. (Hos. 3:1-5)

The last two verses are the meaning in the form of a prophecy. God bought Israel back into the new marriage covenant with full benefits after a long time without God, a priest, or a king. Those “latter days” are included in our time.

The word “Jew” does not appear in this book.


In the third chapter of Joel, a great distinction is made between the chosen family of God and the rest of the other races in the world.

For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people,for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. 3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. 4 Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head?

12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.

16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. 17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. (Joel 3:1-4, 12-13, 16-17)

God declares that all the nations will be brought into judgment, and that this judgment will be made on behalf of His people, not anyone else. God has His holy people, and does not care about the other races. God’s people will be separated forever from these other races.

The word “Jew” does not appear.


God through his prophet Amos, speaks of the judgment of the nations, including Judah and Israel, for these reasons.

…Because they have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked. (Amo. 2:4)

The biggest lie and fraud of history is that the jews are God’s chosen people. This blind devotion and idolatry is the reason America is no longer great. Another lie that is part of this lie and part of the religious system, is that everyone is equal in God’s eyes. How then, do they explain God’s words to Israel?

You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. (Amo. 3:2)

Need we say more? Can our Father say it any simpler?

So-called “Fundamentalism” is so full of lies that they have become the laughing stock of knowledgeable Christians. They condemn other denominations, criticize the Catholics, curse the Mormons, but yet they practically worship the jews who are privileged above everyone else. It is their lies that have caused America to be brought low.

The word “Jew” does not appear. The racial message of Amos is evident.


In this small book is just one point of a racial interest. In God’s condemnation of Esau, he tells him: “For thy violence against thy brother Jacob, shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.” (Oba. 1:10) This book should serve to remind us that Jacob and Esau were twin brothers of Isaac and Rebecca. When Rebekah carried these twins, she inquired of the Lord.

And the LORD said to her, “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples, born of you, shall be divided; the one shall be stronger than the other, the elder shall serve the younger.” (Gen. 25:23, RSV)

Of course, Jacob had twelve sons who became the twelve tribes of Israel, whereas Esau married women of Canaan and the daughter of Ishmael, of whom the offspring became the Edomites who are condemned and “cut off forever” in this book of Obadiah.

Even though Esau was the twin brother of Jacob, his offspring were not to be a part of the family of God. It is God’s business whom He has chosen by covenant for His inheritance and namesake. This fact of history should prove to all that God hates race mixing. Of all the sins in the world that God hates, this one tops them all!

The word “Jew” does not appear, and they are the descendants of the Edomites mentioned here in Obadiah.


The time frame of Jonah is about 800 BC, some 80 years before the ten northern tribes were taken in the Assyrian captivity. Jonah said, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land. (Jon. 1:9)

Why didn’t Jonah say he was a “jew?” As we know, it was because the word “jew” did not exist at the time. It wasn’t until after the Judean return to Jerusalem that some of their enemies referred to the Judeans as “jews.” Jonah used the Hebrew word ibriy, an Eberite (from Eber), son of Salah, great grand-son of Shem whose father was Noah. Hebrews were, “…the posterity of Abraham who descended from Eber through Peleg, including the descendants of Eber through Joktan. As Asshur represented the Shemites who dwelt in the far East, including Elam, so Eber represents the western Shemites.” (Fausset’s Bible Dictionary, 1966, p. 181)

Jonah was not a Jew any more than Abraham or the Christ was a “Jew.” They all were Hebrews of direct lineage to Eber, Shem, Noah and Adam. Not one jew among them!

The word “Jew” does not appear in this book. The racial context is evident.


This prophet Micah is dated at 740 BC, 19 years before the departure of the ten northern tribes because of the Assyrian invasion. Much of what he prophesied has to do with the end of the age.

It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised up above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it. (Mic. 4:1, RSV)

The “mountains” in this verse are symbols for nations. The nation of God is established as the highest of all the nations, “and the peoples shall flow to it.” Isn’t this obviously the United States of America? Haven’t we been known as the greatest nation of all history? And thus, the peoples (of other nations) have come here (or sought to). This is a historically fulfilled prophecy.

Further down in this chapter is a statement regarding society today; “For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.” (Mic. 4:5) As we have seen in other Scriptures, so again we see the “us” and “them” distinction, between our God and their god.

And farther down again (v. 8), it speaks of us: “And you, O tower of the flock, hill of the daughter of Zion, to you shall it come, the former dominion shall come, the kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.” (Mic. 4:8, RSV) “Former dominion?” That sounds like good news! In these two entities, Zion (Israel) and Jerusalem (Judah), shall come a “former dominion.” In other words, we (all of Israel) are restored — we win!

Zephaniah also prophesied of the coming restoration of the kingdom of God. What a wonderful time this will be!

On that day you shall not be put to shame because of the deeds by which you have rebelled against me; for then I will remove from your midst your proudly exultant ones, and you shall no longer be haughty in my holy mountain. 12 For I will leave in the midst of you a people humble and lowly. They shall seek refuge in the name of the LORD, 13 those who are left in Israel; they shall do no wrong and utter no lies, nor shall there be found in their mouth a deceitful tongue. For they shall pasture and lie down, and none shall make them afraid. 14 Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! 15 The LORD has taken away the judgments against you, he has cast out your enemies. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall fear evil no more. 20 At that time I will bring you home, at the time when I gather you together; yea, I will make you renowned and praised among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes, says the LORD. (Zeph. 3:11-15, 20, RSV)

However, before this dominion becomes reality again, a cleansing must come:

Get up and smash them to pieces, daughter of Zion, because I will make your horn like iron and your hooves like bronze! And you will beat many people to pieces, and I will consecrate their dishonest gain to the LORD and their assets to the Lord of the entire earth. (Mic. 4:13, ISV)

This cleansing action at the behest of our returning Lord by the daughter of Zion will not set well with the humanists and communists. Their dominion will be replaced by the eternal order of the Almighty. In the wake of this threshing, the ill-gotten wealth of those beaten will be used to bring honor and glory to our Lord; and teaching and understanding to our impoverished racial brethren. When this happens,

The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. 17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee. (Mic. 7:16-17)

Micah ends his prophecy for the end of this age with welcome words, “Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.” (Mic. 7:20)

The word “Jew” does not appear; and the racial understanding is clear.

[NOTE: In the books of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah, there is nothing of racial significance; and the word “Jew” does not appear.]


Haggai prophesied about the year 520 BC, during the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem. Both Haggai and Zechariah are mentioned in the book of Ezra (5:1). We tend to think the Bible is in chronological order, but it is not. Both Ezra and Haggai lived within the same time period of temple restoration.

In the book of Ezra, we learned that when the Israelites returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity and began rebuilding the temple, the local people offered to help them in the rebuilding project. Then the answer came from Israel’s leaders; “Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the LORD God of Israel…” (Ezr. 4:3)

This may seem to have been a cold and unloving answer to those so willing to help. But the answer to this situation runs deeper and adds to our racial understanding of Scripture. In Haggai chapter two, the question of clean and unclean things is discussed.

12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No. 13 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean. 14 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the LORD; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean. (Hag. 2:12-14)

The Lord, through Haggai, was referring to the non-Israelites who occupied the land during the 70 years of captivity. They were unclean, including any works they might do. He did not want them profaning His dwelling place with their presence or help. Someday America, and the world, will understand how racist God really is. He has a family of people, a race, who are ordained above all other people to a particular destiny.

It is interesting that this lesson is recorded here, rather than in the book of Ezra. It goes to show the principle, that all of Scripture testifies to parts of Scripture, that is, the Bible is its own commentary.

The word “Jew” does not appear. The racial context is clear.


The prophecy of Zechariah took place in Jerusalem after the return from Babylonian captivity, probably about 516 BC. Zechariah was contemporary with the prophet Haggai, both of them encouraging the Judahites to resume the rebuilding of the temple. The writer of this prophecy is the same Zechariah referred to by Jesus the Christ in Matthew.

33 Ye serpents, ye offspring of vipers, how shall ye escape the judgment of hell? 34 Therefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: some of them shall ye kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city: 35 that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of Abel the righteous unto the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah, whom ye slew between the sanctuary and the altar. (Matt. 23:33-35, ASV)

So, the same brood of “snakes” who began their killing with Abel, and continued down to the murder of Zechariah, Jesus holds responsible for all the righteous blood shed upon the earth. And, we only need be reminded of the tens of millions who have died in the 20th century by that serpent race that brought Communism and Universalism to the world. And only one man stood up against this attack — his name was Adolf Hitler. Blood will continue to flow until Jesus Christ annihilates this evil brood from off the earth.

In Zechariah 8:23 we find the word “Jew.” We have seen this error of the KJV in various places, and as we have noted before, the word never existed within this time frame.

Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew [Judean], saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you. (Zec. 8:23)

The proper word here should be “Judean.” The prophecy is saying that there would come a time when Judeans/Judahites would be sought after because it was known that God was with them (Judahites are Israelites). Could someone please show me where in the Bible God was ever with the jews? Such an idea is diametrically opposed to any word or thought in Scripture.

Further, these words of this prophecy may refer to the days of Israel’s restoration in the kingdom, as suggested by Zechariah’s use of the terms:

  1. the remnant of this people in these days… (Zec. 8:6)
  2. the mountain [or nation] of the LORD of hosts… (Zec. 8:3)
  3. I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God… (Zec. 8:8)

If this, in fact, refers to the kingdom age, how impossible the use of the word “Jew” becomes since they will already have been gathered and burned by the judgment and wrath of Almighty God.

In chapter nine of Zechariah, we see God’s judgment upon Tyre and Sidon:

3 Tyre has built herself a rampart, and heaped up silver like dust, and gold like the mud of the streets. 4 But lo, the Lord will strip her of her possessions and hurl her wealth into the sea, and she shall be devoured by fire. 5 Ashkelon shall see it, and be afraid; Gaza too, and shall writhe in anguish; Ekron also, because its hopes are confounded. The king shall perish from Gaza; Ashkelon shall be uninhabited; 6 a mongrel people shall dwell in Ashdod; and I will make an end of the pride of Philistia. (Zec. 9:3-6, RSV)

This is what happens to nations that allow, promote, and yes, reward people for race mixing. You mean to tell me that preachers across America are telling their congregations that God doesn’t care, racially, who you marry?

“A mongrel people” (v. 6) — Some translations here use different terms for the same thing: bastard, mixed people, mixed race, strange people, or aliens. We have learned from John chapter eight, that the jews who hated our Lord were a mongrel people, not the product of God’s creation but the product of gross sin. All mongrel people fall into this category.

Obviously, these are punishments God inflicted upon these places. A mongrel race is never a blessing, but always a curse. In recent years, America and the White race have approached the amount of race mixing thus far only found among jews. Now we are ripe for judgment. We tend to blame the government for this, but really the main guilty party is false judeo-Christianity.

And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God. (Zec. 13:8-9)

Is this prophecy for America? Just imagine, two-thirds of the family of God will perish in the coming catastrophe. The lack of knowledge, idolatry, and corruption in the church are the reasons that the cleansing action of God must come. Death will cleanse absolutely, and those brought through the fire will be refined and tested until they will be His people and He their God.

One of the greatest blessings in the kingdom is the promise found in the last verse of Zechariah; “…and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” (Zec. 14:21) This is clearly a racial intimation that reveals how God views the two different groups. “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you [Israel] toucheth the apple of his eye.” (Zec. 2:8) This shows God’s great love for his covenant people.


The book of Malachi will serve as a conclusion.

The word “Jew” does not appear in Malachi. But Esau, its equivalent for the biggest part of Jewry, does appear.

The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi. 2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, 3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness. (Mal. 1:1-3)

Thus, we have seen, that nearly every book in the Old Testament reveals a racial distinction made by God. This verse is also quoted by the Apostle Paul in the New Testament. Wokeism along with other humanistic ideas of equality have no foundation in the Bible. It appears that God is a “racist.” Are you “woke?” Believing the lies of wokeism may make a person “woke,” but only the truth can make you truly free and truly awake.

God Almighty makes another racial statement of hate:

If Edom says, “We are shattered but we will rebuild the ruins,” the LORD of hosts says, “They may build, but I will tear down, till they are called the wicked country, the people with whom the LORD is angry for ever.” (Mal. 1:4, RSV)
