Loving Rebuke
June 14, 2024

“The ear that listens to life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise.”  Proverbs 15:31 (ESV).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

The book of Proverbs is one that flows with abundant insight for wisdom.  It shows that one of the most prominent qualities of wise people is that they welcome and even celebrate life-giving correction.

In today’s world, overrun by cultural Marxism, there is much discussion as to what segments of our society hate themselves.

Well, Proverbs gives the answer.  He who rejects life-giving correction despises himself.

The truest demonstration of self-hatred is revealed by knuckleheads who refuse to humble themselves and embrace life-giving correction.

Loving rebuke saves lives.  Correction displays love.

Refuge and Strength
June 13, 2024

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1 (ESV).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Psalm 46 is a popular Psalm as it includes the text, “Be still, and know that I am God.” This was the conclusion to a Psalm that previously observed,

Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.

This described what looked like the end of the world. Nevertheless, the Psalmist remained unshaken. He refused to allow present difficulty to cause him to forget God’s past faithfulness.

Virus or no virus, God is our refuge and strength.

Marital Genesis
June 12, 2024

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” Matthew 19:5 (ESV).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

With this statement Jesus affirmed what He’d already said in Genesis 1 and 2 and defined marriage for all time. Contrary to the protestations of the nouveau critical theorists, the nuclear family consisting of a married father and mother is not a western sociological prescription or construct.

Marriage did not originate in the west.  It’s origin isn’t suburban America.

It started in Genesis, in the Garden of Eden.  Marriage is God’s idea.  Therefore, He alone defines it.  If you don’t like it, your problem is with God… not me.

Killing Lazarus
June 11, 2024

"So the chief priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well.” John 12:

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

After Jesus resurrected Lazarus his and Lazarus’ fame spread.  They already planned to kill Jesus.  But now, because Lazarus was tangible evidence of Jesus’ resurrection power, the chief priests and Pharisees plotted to kill Lazarus too.

They never worried about Lazarus before. But now, because he is a walking billboard of Christ’s power, they want him dead too.

This, brothers and sisters, is why many come against you.  It isn’t personal, but Satanic forces can’t stand your representation of God’s power to transform lives.

That’s why we rejoice when we’re slandered for His namesake. Christ’s power is on display.

Adoptive Bliss
June 10, 2024

“Rejoice with those who rejoice.” Romans 12:15(a).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Michael, a five-year-old boy, showed up at the courthouse in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for an adoption hearing with his foster parents, and he had a crowd of unusual supporters.

Michael's entire kindergarten class sat in the audience behind him waving big red hearts mounted on wooden sticks to show their support.

The kindergartners offered the most touching answers, standing up and telling the court, "I love Michael" or "Michael's my best friend.”

Michael's new father and mother have been married for nearly 10 years, and he'd been living with them as a foster child for more than year.

Adoption truly is at the heart of the Gospel.

Mercy and Truth
June 07, 2024

“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged; and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” Proverbs 16:6 (KJV).

My name is Abraham Hamilton III and this is the Hamilton Minute.

We live in a day when churches are filled with people ready to hear and receive God’s mercy. Unfortunately, however, it is often accompanied by a de-emphasis or concealment of the truth of God’s Word.

Paul, the salvation-by-grace-through-faith Apostle, was asked if salvation is solely a product of grace what benefit then does the law provide. Paul responded, “Without the law, I wouldn’t have known God’s righteous standard and how far away from it I was.”

Any presentation of God’s mercy absent of God’s truth is no Gospel at all.

Iniquity is purged by mercy and truth.

Scouting America
June 06, 2024

“Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female. ” Matthew 19:4 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Since being founded 115 years ago, the Boy Scouts of America has announced that it will officially change its name to Scouting America, effecting February 8, 2025.

The change, according to the organization, is it’s latest effort to brand itself as a more inclusive organization. Did you get that? The BOY Scouts need to be more inclusive. What else do they need to include?

This is yet another attack on the God-ordained, God-designed, distinctives of maleness and femaleness. The objective here is to remove those distinctions and reduce mankind to an androgynous amalgamation of human goo.

Unequal Employment Opportunity Commission
June 05, 2024

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness. ” Isaiah 5:20 (KJV).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

18 states have now filed a lawsuit against the Biden Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) after it released new sexual harassment guidelines extending Title VII’s protections against sex-based discrimination to cover gender identity.

The new guidelines insist an employer may be liable for improper pronoun usage by employees or for keeping male employees out of the women’s restroom and vice-versa.

The states suing to stop this garbage include Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Pandemic Treaty Pause
June 04, 2024

“And the LORD confounded them before Israel.” Joshua 10:10(a) (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

The World Health Organization (WHO) opened its annual meeting in Geneva, Switzerland. But its most regressive and ambitious project, the “Global Pandemic Treaty,” has been shelved… for now.

The WHO has worked these last two years to develop a treaty that would give it unilateral authority to declare “global pandemics” and to dictate health policy to individual nations. If adopted, it would effectively supplant national sovereignty concerning health policy.

Increased criticism from what was called “right wing activists” threw a wrench in their plans.

Thankfully, we’ve avoided this disaster… for now. Rest assured these regressive radicals will continue to their efforts. We must remain vigilant.

Different Spirit
June 03, 2024

“Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, "We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we will surely overcome it.” Numbers 13:30 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Fresh off of the Exodus, the Israelites approached the Promised Land. 10 spies were chosen from the leaders of each tribe. Of the ten spies, only two of them—Joshua and Caleb, remained confident in the LORD. The others, withered in fear.

God himself observed that Caleb had a “different spirit.”

In a crowd of fearful naysayers, we are confident Calebs… because we work in in light of The Caller’s potency. If God be for us who can be against us.

Congressional Ignorance
May 31, 2024

“Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.” Exodus 1:8 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Is it too much to ask to require Congress Members understand Memorial Day? For Representatives Ilhan Ohmar and Cori Bush, ignorance seems to persist unbound.

Memorial Day is a national day of observance set aside to honor and mourn those military service members who gave their lives while serving in our Armed Forces.

Representatives Ohmar and Bush made, and then deleted, social media posts purportedly addressing the living… for Veterans Day.

While disappointing, it’s not surprising that Squad Members like these two didn’t grasp the weight, gravity, and significance of mourning those who died while serving our country.

Faithful Josiah
May 30, 2024

“Josiah was eight years old when he became king. He did right in the sight of the LORD.” Excerpted from 2 Kings 22:1-2 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Josiah’s ascendancy to the throne in Judah followed 57 years of wicked monarchial rule. Josiah’s grandfather was Manasseh. He reigned in Judah 55 years. The Scripture records him as one of the most wicked kings in Judah’s history. Manasseh’s son, Amon, followed him as Judah’s king. He was wicked too, just like his Daddy. He reigned 2 years in Judah.

Then comes Josiah. Though he was Amon’s son and Manasseh’s grandson, he charted a different path.

No matter how wicked your family history may be, that doesn’t dictate your destiny. Like Josiah, chart a new path.

Shameful CTU
May 29, 2024

“The acquisition of treasures by a lying tongue Is a fleeting vapor, the pursuit of death.” Proverbs 21:6 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

In Chicago Public Schools, 16% of elementary school students demonstrated proficiency in reading. 12% showed proficiency in math. 16% of middle school students were proficient in reading, 12% in math. 14% of their high school students were proficient in both reading and math. These test scores aren’t referring to mastery. We’re talking about basic proficiency.

Nevertheless, the Chicago Teachers Union has demanded $50 billion in pay hikes and other absurd perks. There are about 340,000 students enrolled in Chicago’s public schools. Objective metrics show the children are not learning.

Yet, the teachers union demands a raise. Shameful.

Tapia Vindicated
May 28, 2024

“You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

The Jurupa Unified School District in California issued an edict requiring teachers  to address students by their preferred pronouns and to conceal from parents any “gender transitioning” students may pursue.

Jessica Tapia, a Christian and former teacher in the district, was fired when she refused the edict and because she posted about her faith and opinions on her private social media. Tapia said her faith prevents her from lying to children and concealing lies from the children’s parents.

She will now receive $360,000 from the School District to settle the wrongful termination lawsuit she filed against them.

Standing in truth yields vindication.

Essentially Murder
May 27, 2024

“You shall not murder.” Exodus 20:13 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

The most senior medical oncologist in Japan slammed the COVID-19 mRNA shots as “the work of evil” that has caused “essentially murder.”

Dr. Masanori Fukushima, who spearheaded the first cancer outpatient clinic at Kyoto University and launched the first course in pharmacoepidemiology there, identified a slew of problems with the mRNA jabs, evidencing what he called an evil “abuse of science.”

He pointed out that “turbo cancers,” a kind “previously unseen by doctors” that progress extremely quickly and are typically in stage four by the time they are diagnosed, started to appear after the jab rollouts.

Dr. Fukushima added, autoimmune disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and other infections have also increased post-jab.

Famine in the Promised Land
May 24, 2024

“Now the LORD said to Abram, ‘Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father's house, To the land which I will show you.’” Genesis 12:1 (NASB95).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Genesis 12 begins with God calling Abram to leave Haran, his relatives, and all that was comfortable and familiar to him and directing him to the Promised Land. One of the first things Abram encounters in the Promised Land is famine.

When God directs us, we should never assume His will comes without difficulty. However, the presence of difficulty doesn’t nullify God’s direction. Our faithfulness to Him should never be determined by surrounding circumstances. When God calls, follow Him. Rejoicing follows obedience.

Beautiful Feet
May 23, 2024


My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

A friend of mine who pastors in Nigeria once said to me “ya know, America has sent more missionaries into the world than any other nation before it.  But the nation that once sent missionaries has now become the mission field.”

As you consider the calling God has for you, I just want to remind you that just as other nations need missionaries we need missionaries in America too.

There are a lot of neighborhoods right here in our country that desperately need evangelism and discipleship. Let’s not forget them.

Avoid Them
May 22, 2024

"Having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.” 2 Timothy 3:5 (ESV).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Today some professing Christians assert that Critical Theory, Critical Race Theory, and Intersectionality are helpful tools for the Church.  These people have an appearance of godliness, but their assertions deny the sufficiency of God’s Word to guide the Church in living out the reconciliation Jesus secured for us on the cross.

Make no mistake, as Paul told Timothy, the God-breathed Scripture is sufficient for teaching, for correction, for training in righteousness.

Those who have an appearance of godliness, but deny the power of God’s Word for doctrine and practice must be identified and avoided.

Present Absence
May 21, 2024

"She took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.” Genesis 3:6(b) (ESV).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

Genesis 3 records for us the cataclysmic rebellion against God in the Garden of Eden. The entire episode, Eve’s entertainment of the sensual lies of the talking snake, the deceptive twisting of God’s word, all of it transpired with Adam standing right there.

Adam was the one to whom God entrusted his word to originally, Adam was the one God charged with cultivating and protecting the garden and his wife.

Yet he stood there silent.

Men, let us not repeat Adam’s sin of present absence.

Stand on God’s word and defend your gardens!

The Life Giver
May 20, 2024

"I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14 (NASB).

My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

A generation has been taught they descend from animals, that there is no God.

They’ve been taught they are nothing more than a cosmic accident, they have no purpose and life has no meaning.

Life’s meaninglessness has been punctuated for them by the 60 million children who’ve been slaughtered in the womb… and counting.

But society is shocked when they act out exactly as they’ve been taught… like animals with no conscience.

Respect for human life begins with respect for the Life-Giver.

America needs repentance!
