Financial Liberation

“The borrower is the slave of the lender.”  Proverbs 22:7(b) (ESV).

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

Prior to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, over 80% of American families were debt free.

Today, over 80% of the American people are saddled with debt.

I was asked recently asked what advice I could offer in the midst of the national tension we currently face. One of the things I said in response was to work toward getting completely out of debt.

So much fruitfulness and faithfulness to God has been robbed from us due to the impact of crushing debt.

One of the best things you can do for your family right now is to become debt-free.

Still the Way

“Faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”  1 Corinthians 13:13 (NASB).

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

Karl Marx, an emissary of evil, and Charles Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers,” were evangelists of diametrically opposed messages, yet they both lived in London and the same time.

In fact, when asked the name of the person he most detested, Friedrich Engels, Marx’s cohort in chaos, responded unequivocally: “Spurgeon.”

A generation later George Bernard Shaw, a hardcore communist, seethed in hatred for William Booth and his Salvation Army of volunteers.

Time and again, robust Christian witness has been the inoculate against the proliferation of Marxist poison in society.

Speech and Feet
August 04, 2023

“You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness.” 2 Timothy 3:10 (ESV).

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

Apostle Paul penned his second epistle to Timothy, now an Elder in the Church at Ephesus, about 64-65 A.D. while imprisoned in Rome awaiting his imminent execution under Nero.

In warning Timothy about the coming perilous times, marked by the increased anti-Christian persecution in the Roman empire in 64 A.D., Paul directed Timothy to his speech and his feet.

In speech, Paul gave Timothy priceless Biblical instruction. In feet, Paul left Timothy a legacy of lifestyle.

Christ-following demands consistency between speech and feet.

Moral and Religious
August 03, 2023

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19 (NASB).

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

In his October 11, 1798 address to the Massachusetts Militia, John Adams, 2nd President of the United States and founding father said,

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

He understood that in order for the American Constitutional Republic to survive long term the church in America must make disciples of its populace.

An immoral people will always destroy themselves through lawlessness. To think otherwise, is to suffer under a grand delusion.

“I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14(a) (NASB95).

Run That $300,000

“Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Luke 8:17 (NASB95).

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

At the height of Schmovid insanity in September 2020, Gabriel Rench and Sean and Rachel Bonnet joined their local church leaders in worship at an outdoor, maskless, 20-minute Psalm singing service in Moscow, ID.

The city responded by arresting the three of them.

In March 2021, Rench and the Bonhets sued the city for violating their 1st and 4th Amendment protected freedoms. After a hearing during which the Judge rebuked the city for violating the U.S. Constitution as well as its own municipal code, the city agreed to pay them a $300,000 settlement.

No Deal
July 31, 2023

“For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17 (NASB95).

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

Hunter Biden’s plea agreement with federal prosecutors on tax and gun charges — panned by critics as “a sweetheart deal” — fell apart in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware, after a federal judge scrutinized the agreement.

U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika objected to portions of the Agreement saying, “the gun charge agreement doesn’t seem to be constitutional.” After stating her objections and learning Hunter Biden was still being investigated criminally, Judge Noreika refused to accept the deal and Hunter Biden ultimately pled “not guilty.”

This move makes a trial more likely.

Undefeatable One
July 28, 2023

“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8 (ESV).

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

The Communist Chinese Government has undertaken an effort to “rewrite” the Bible to make it compatible with their communist and atheistic worldview. The first glimpse of the damning effort was revealed recently in which the woman caught in adultery is not spared from stoning and condemnation by Jesus. Instead, their false representation of Jesus stones the woman, a rogue dissident, himself.

Pastor Wang Yi of China said it best. The Communist Chinese are doomed to lose. They’ve made an enemy of the undefeatable One.

Two-Man Game
July 27, 2023

“You may not put a foreigner over yourselves who is not your countryman.”  Deuteronomy 17:15(b) (NASB95).

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

The 2023 FAMiLY Leadership Summit in Des Moines, IA hosted several prominent Republican Presidential candidates, a few of which face planted stupendously. Others acquitted themselves well.

But, recent polling  by Townhall Media and the Salem Media Group indicates that this is still a two man race… so far.

Former President Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are locked in a two-man game at this point. Mr. Trump didn’t appear at the Summit. A missed opportunity, in my view, as Mr. DeSantis may gain steam. Others are auditioning for non-presidential roles seemingly.

But, we’re still a long way from January.

The Great Car Reset
July 26, 2023

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2 Timothy 3:13 (KJV).

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

The Great Car Reset is upon us with an insidious attack upon our freedom of movement as electric vehicles (EVs) are been forced down our throats without a vote.

Banks around the world are announcing their prospective refusal to provide financing for gas-powered cars, even at the automaker level.

Our own EPA has promulgated new “emissions standards” that would ensure EVs make up about 67% of all new vehicles sold in America by 2032.

And if you somehow skirt the gas car bans, they seek to make getting gas a living nightmare.

The Great Car Reset is here.

The White
July 25, 2023

“Being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart.” Ephesians 4:18 (NASB95).

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

Representative Tim Burchett said the Secret Service “destroyed” the bag containing cocaine at the White House.

He further explained,

[The Secret Service] don't even have the key from the locker [where the cocaine was found] and they said originally 'we didn't find enough DNA, now, and they went back and said, 'we didn't find any DNA.

With all of the cameras in the White House and intimate location the cocaine was found, the Secret Service likely destroyed the baggie BECAUSE THEY KNOW who brought the white into the White House.

“Deliver those who are being taken away to death, And those who are staggering to slaughter.” Proverbs 24:11(a).

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

The Louisiana legislature protected the Pelican State from gubernatorial lunacy by overriding John Bel Edwards’ veto of HB 648. The measure protects children from harmful medical procedures and unscrupulous profiteers who seek to manipulate struggling children.

In resounding fashion the state house, by a 75-23 margin, and the state senate by a 28-11 margin, sternly rebuked the Governor. The Legislature did what the Governor refused to do — protect children.

By God’s grace, I pray this act leads to a restoration of sanity in Louisiana’s medical system and medical systems across the nation. May it be so LORD.

“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it.” 2 Timothy 3:14

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

In these last days, we see evildoers going from bad to worse.  Unbelievers pursue pleasure without morality. Large retailers use their platforms to provoke social change and indoctrinate our children.

It’s our responsibility as Christ-followers to push back against the tide, continue to speak the truth and saving grace through our LORD. If we are faithful to share God’s love, there may yet be hope for lost souls.

We know the world is gonna world. Target is gonna target. But is the church going to church?

As Ourselves
July 20, 2023

And the second is like it.  You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

My Name is Abraham Hamilton III, and this is the Hamilton Minute.

When Queries by the pharisees concerning the greatest commandment, Jesus answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind."

He then said the second greatest commandment is, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

He didn't simply say love your neighbor.  He said Christ followers must love our neighbors as ourselves.

Christian duty requires us to employ discernment and active empathy.  We worship our Lord when we put ourselves in one another's shoes as we do live together and resolve misunderstandings.

Maturity Aid
July 19, 2023

“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.”  Proverbs 13:20 (NASB).

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

When my wife and I first started having children we discouraged our family members from speaking to them in baby talk… you know the gaga-googoo stuff.

The reason was simple.  We wanted our children to speak English well.  Baby talk would hinder that development.

The same principle applies to spiritual development.

If we want our children to be wise disciples of our LORD we should ask ourselves how much of their time is spent investing in spiritual maturity.

Protracted time in the company of spiritual baby-talkers will inevitably cause harm.

Loving Rebuke
July 18, 2023

"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
July 17, 2023

"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
July 14, 2023

“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
July 13, 2023

"So the chief Priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well."

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
July 12, 2023

"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.
