Lunar Communion

“For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes.” 1 Corinthians 11:26 (NASB).

Buzz Aldrin is the famed astronaut who planted the American flag on the moon and explored it for some 21 hours.

What many don’t know, however, is what Mr. Aldrin did to commemorate the moon landing.

Aldrin, a committed Christian and Elder in his local church, marked the incredible occasion by celebrating Holy Communion.  This first meal ever eaten on the moon was a celebration of the LORD’s table, a lunar declaration that Jesus Christ is our LORD, Savior, and soon coming King.

Love Evidence

“Jesus answered him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word.” 14:23(a) (ESV).

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

We live an era currently where spirituality is en vogue. Christ following is not.

Some, even claim to love Jesus while simultaneously rebelling against His word and encouraging others to rebel similarly.

But, Jesus said it himself: “if you love me you will obey me. Whoever does not love me does not obey my words.”

Make no mistake about it, to love Jesus is to obey Him. You cannot love Jesus and disobey Him.

If you are living in rebellion against Jesus’ word, you are not following Jesus as He’s revealed Himself in scripture. You’re following a god you’ve created.

Reasons in Reality

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.” Psalm 139:13 (ESV).

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

According to the CDC and the Guttmacher Institute the number one reason women choose abortion is they’re “not ready for a child.”

2) “Can’t afford a baby.”

3) “Don’t want any more children.”

4) “Don’t want to be a single mother.”

5) “Not mature enough to raise a child

6) “Would interfere with education or career.”

Those reasons represent 95% of all abortions.

Risks to the mother’s physical health represent less than 4% of all abortions and conception resulting from “rape and incest” represent 1% of all abortions.

The reality? Abortion is used as birth control.

Democratic Socialism

“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion.”  2 Corinthians 9:7 (ESV).

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

Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines socialism as an economic system in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state. The distribution of goods are controlled by the state. It is a system where there is no private property. A stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism.

American socialist put the descriptor “democratic” in front of socialism because they hope to persuade you to vote for… the elimination of private property.

Make no mistake, socialism is socialism. There is no kinder, gentler form of it.

Adamic Nature

“Just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.” Romans 5:12 (ESV).

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

A popular effort in social revisionism is happening where “racism,” which is better described in Biblical terms as skin-color-based partiality, is a crime of which only people with lighter skin color can be guilty.

Let’s be clear, factions, divisions, and dissensions, including those based on skin color, are the fruit of the sinful flesh.

The root cause of partiality is sin.

Every person, regardless of the quantity of melanin in their skin, is capable of partiality.

The only remedy for sin is the blood of Jesus Christ.

Covetousness as Policy
June 13, 2023

You shall not covet your neighbor's house or anything that is your neighbor’s.  Excerpted from Exodus 20:17 (ESV).

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

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “an economic system that allows billionaires to exist is immoral.”

Someone may want to let the former bartender turned Congresswoman know that the top 1% of wage earners pay nearly 50% of all federal taxes.

The top 10% of wage earners pay nearly 70% of all federal taxes.

The top 20% of wage earners pay about 85% of all federal taxes.  That money funds things like our national welfare programs.

Don’t let them entice you to harbor disdain for the wealthy.  Socialists  bank on covetousness to gain support for their regressive policies.

Rejected Fruitfullness
June 12, 2023

"Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it.”  Genesis 1:28 (ESV).

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

According to the most recent reports provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), researchers looked at fertility rates for women of all age groups and ethnicities and found the nationwide rate was 16% lower than what is needed for a population to replace itself.

There has been much discussion about the demographic winter in various European countries.  Well, that demographic winter has reached the United States.

The first command God gave mankind in scripture was “be fruitful.”  But, man has the penchant to fancy his own ways over God’s.

Rejecting God’s ways always carries severe consequences.

Leading Cause

“What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying to me from the ground.”  Genesis 4:10 (ESV).

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

According to the World Health Organization, abortion was the leading cause of death worldwide in 2018.  As of December 31, 2018, 41.9 million babies were murdered in the womb last year.

That is more than the 8.2 million people who died from cancer in 2018, more than the 5 million who died from smoking, and more than the 1.7 million who died from HIV/Aids in 2018 globally COMBINED!!!

Thomas Jefferson once said, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

LORD, please strengthen us to abolish this wickedness!

Christians and Abortion
June 08, 2023

For you formed my inward parts.  you knitted me together in my mother's womb.

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

According to a recent study published by the Christian Post, 76.3 percent of all abortions are obtained by "God-fearing women."

With 68.7 percent who identify themselves as Christian women, and 18 percent of all abortions obtained by self-discribed

born-again or evangelical women.

A corresponding Care Net study found that many women with unplanned pregnancies go silently from the church pew to the

abortion clinic, convinced the church would gossip rather than help.

America's greatest need is repentance.

When the hearts of the American people turn to God, everything else will be impacted.

Peculiar People

"But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people” 1 Peter 2:9 (KJV).

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

Hannaniah, Mishael, and Azariah weren’t the only Jewish exiles in Babylon.  They weren’t the only people under Nebuchadnezzar who knew that YHWH expressly prohibited worshipping graven images.

Yet, they are the only three recorded in Scripture who refused to bow down and worship the golden statute.  Though they were an extreme minority they refused to go along to get along with the Babylonian culture.

The way of Christ-following may be in the minority today, it is nevertheless The Way.

Resolute is the disposition of the fully persuaded. In this modern day Babylon, be one of the three.

Elevate Him

"And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” John 12:32 (ESV)

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

Full weaponization of the federal government to crush a political opponent, politicians and a political party that bill themselves as pro-life while refusing to actually do what’s in their power to stop the killing of little babies, the successful and unrelenting advance of Regressivism…

All of these are signs that our national condition is not merely a natural phenomenon.  It is spiritual.

Civic engagement without spiritual engagement produces political roller coasters.  National course correction will only come by national repentance.  We must elevate Him.

"Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.”  Luke 19:5 (ESV)

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

When their mom passed the Landau brothers of NJ had a garage sale to clear out their mom’s house, but they decided to keep a few things including mom’s old creepy painting of a woman passed out in a chair and two men trying to revive her.

Fast forward to their estate auction and the brothers found themselves fielding bids from France and Germany for the painting.

Turns out it was a long lost Rembrandt that ultimately sold for $1.1 million.

A trained eye spots value where others don’t.

Every Joint Supplies

"From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth…”  Ephesians 4:16 (KJV)

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

It's not by chance that Jesus refers to his Church as “The Body.”  Just as it is with our physical bodies every member has a distinct role and function to fulfill.

Unfortunately, in the era of celebrity Christianity we’ve reduced the concept of ministry solely to what occurs in what is often little more than Sunday productions and performances.

The key to thriving in God’s Kingdom is understanding that every member in The Body of Christ is vital called to ministry.

Jesus the Messiah

They said to each other, "Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked with us on the road, while He opened to us the Scriptures?"

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

These words were shared between Cleopas and his companion on the seven mile walk from Jerusalem to Emmaus as Jesus, in resurrected form, used the Hebrew scriptures to reveal himself to them as the Messiah.

There are at least 109 distinct biblical prophecies the Messiah has to fulfill. The mathematical probability of such a feat occurring is astoundingly absurd.  Yet that absurdity is satisfied in Jesus the Messiah.

Come let us adore Him.

"Then Saul clothed David with his armor. He put a helmet of bronze on his head and clothed him with a coat of mail.”  1 Samuel 17:38 (ESV)

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

40 days of twice daily taunting from Goliath sent Saul and the Israelite army reeling in fear.  But David’s passion for YHWH, conviction, and full persuasion stirred King Saul.

When people are on fire for God it often provokes others to glob on to that fire.

But we must be careful to resist the well-meaning overtures of the flame-less by-standers.

Saul meant well, but his armor couldn’t help.  It would only slow David down.

"Salt [is] good: but if the salt has lost its savour, how will it be seasoned?” Luke 14:34 (NKJV).

Matt Walsh wrote a piece for the Daily Wire where he said,

The contemporary American Christian is the most open-minded person to have ever existed.  He’s so open minded you can hardly tell he’s Christian, or has a mind at all…

He has for a long time been open to the idea that marriage isn’t permanent and sex isn’t meant exclusively for marriage.  He’s basically open to whatever notions are popular…

He is open, and where he is not open, he is silent.

In Leaf

“And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.”  Mark 11:13 (ESV).

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

From a distance, the fig leaves gave Jesus the impression that there was fruit on the tree.  Upon closer inspection, the tree was fruitless.

Perfect church attendance and ministry activity cannot replace actual Christ-like fruit produced in our lives.

From a distance, it can appear as though we’re bearing fruit but what would we find with a closer look?

Are we content with fruitful appearance or do we yearn for the real thing?

“Then Elisha prayed and said, 'O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see…'”  Excerpt from 2 Kings 6:17 (ESV)

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

One morning, Elisha’s young servant went out first thing and saw the Syrian army surrounding Elisha’s home town. The servant was racked with fear and cried out to Elisha, “What will we do?” Elisha said, “Don’t be afraid.  There are more with us than are with them.”  Then Elisha prayed, "LORD, open this young man’s eyes.” The servant then saw mountain full of horses and chariots of fire!

As opposition mounts in our lives, fear not, the LORD - who is in us and with us - is greater than the hostility present in the world.

Pruning
May 25, 2023
00:01:00

"Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”  John 15:2

No one likes to suffer difficult circumstances.  In this era of easy believe-ism it's often conveyed, “If life isn’t always smooth we’re doing something wrong.”

The Scripture teaches us, however, that our LORD often meets fruitful branches with additional pruning.  The pruning is not punishment.  Its actually to make us even more fruitful.

If you’re in a rough spot right now, take heart.  What may feel like the squeeze to end all squeezes could very well be the LORD’s pruning for additional fruitfulness.

When the LORD prunes us He does so for our good.

Mercy and Truth
May 24, 2023

"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.
