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.

Moore v. Harper
July 11, 2023

"So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted.” Habakkuk 1:4 (ESV).

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

In a case that arose from litigation concerning congressional district drawings in North Carolina by its state legislature, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) has now ruled in Moore v. Harper that state legislatures DO NOT have plenary authority concerning the time, manner and place federal elections are held, though that is exactly what Article 1, Section 4 of of the U.S. Constitution says.

SCOTUS’ extra-constitutional power conscription led Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, and Alito to dissent from the majority’s opinion, objecting to this unconstitutional abuse of power.

NYT Corroboration
July 10, 2023

“Every fact is to be confirmed by the testimony of two or three witnesses.” 2 Corinthians 13:1(b) (NASB95).

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

Directly contradicting A.G. Merrick Garland, IRS Whistleblower Gary Shapley has testified under oath that U.S. Attorney David Weiss was instructed not to pursue charges against Hunter Biden. The New York Times has now published reporting corroborating Mr. Shapley’s sworn testimony.

The Times wrote,

A second former I.R.S. official, who has not been identified, told House Republicans the same story. That episode was confirmed independently to The New York Times by a person with knowledge of the situation.

Independent corroboration here probably warrants mention prior to the 21st paragraph. But, hey, they published it.

Dr. Johnson Varkey
July 07, 2023

"Truth is lacking, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey." Isaiah 59:15(a) (ESV).

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

Dr. Johnson Varkey is a committed Christian who’s taught biology at St. Phillip’s College in San Antonio, TX for the last 20 years. However, after a lesson in which he told his class sex is determined by chromosomes X and Y, he was terminated by the college.

Thankfully, our friends at First Liberty are representing Dr. Varkey and they’ve demanded his immediate reinstatement, or else. Biology hasn’t changed in the last 20 years. Our society has been taken captive. When a biology professor is fired for teaching biology it shows the culture has turned putrid.

Rebellion Celebrated
July 06, 2023

"Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14 (ESV).

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

During a rebellion celebration in New York City, revelers chanted,

We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming for your children.

They’re boldly and loudly saying what used to be reserved for whispers. Bro. Don Wildmon, AFA’s Founder, and many others warned this was exactly the objective all along. Shouts of “tolerance” masked a true objective to create the hedonistic America of a globalist future using sexual perversion as a cudgel.

Now, the tolerance mob demanding the right to tell kindergartners about their rebellious sexual preference. This isn’t a coincidence. It was planned all along.

Baby Bonus

"Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14 (ESV).

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

Michael Seifert is the CEO and founder of PublicSq., an app designed to link patriotic businesses with quality products, services, and exclusive discounts.

His company offers a $5,000 bonus, after tax, to any employees if they or their spouses have or adopt a baby.

Mr. Seifert said,

A company is only as strong as the families that build it. For us, we’re a pro-family company. We’re unashamed about that.

This is a great example of a CEO fostering a culture of life through his company. I pray other companies follow PublicSq.’s example.

Mercy and Truth
July 04, 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.

Beautiful Feet
July 03, 2023


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.

Father and Mother
June 30, 2023

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” Matthew 19:5 (NASB95).

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

God initiated human history and defined for all time what marriage is and identified the only two types of candidates that comprise a marriage: one man and one woman. He also identified the archetypical union from which these candidates would derive. The prospective husband and wife both come from the ancestral unit of a Father and Mother.

Though Adam and Eve didn’t have biological parents, this pronouncement reveals God had particularized specifics in mind as to what He ordained Fathers and Mothers to be. Fallenness didn’t change God’s plan.

Gary Shapley
June 29, 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.

Gary Shapley is a supervisory IRS agent. Disgusted by the appalling perversion of our justice system in the Hunter Biden case, he’s become a whistleblower exposing the details of the IRS turning a blind eye to Hunter’s tax evasion dating back to 2014, the blocked search warrants, and great lengths the government went to avoid holding the oval office occupant’s son accountable for his crimes that also seem to implicate “the big guy.”

Men think they are shrewd. The fact is no one escapes the judgment of God. That should make them tremble.

Texas Non-Christian University (1)
June 28, 2023

“They not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.” Romans 1:32(b) (NASB95).

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

Texas Christian University will offer “The Queer Art of Drag” course during the 2023-2024 school year through its Women and Gender Studies Department. The course instructor’s focus areas include queer theory and activism, as well as “LGBTQ history and culture.”

Enrolled students must “produce a one-to-two minute solo drag performance to be recorded, edited, and shared with an open audience at TCU’s annual Night of Drag.”

I won’t even get into the additional insanity listed in the course syllabus.

If this is what’s considered “education,” this so-called Christian University needs a name change immediately.

Brazen Corruption
June 27, 2023

"Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands far away; For truth has stumbled in the street, And uprightness cannot enter.” Isaiah 59:14 (NASB95).

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

Regressives have forever forfeited any appeals concerning privilege, guns, and paying your “fair share” of taxes with this appalling Hunter Biden case. Others, similarly situated, didn’t get anywhere near this type of sweetheart deal that’s only available because crack-man’s last name is Biden. He recklessly broke gun laws and completely refused to pay taxes for years. Yet, he won’t spend a day in prison.

This should be a seminal moment for all Americans to recognize what’s happened to our country.

Repentance is the only option for our nation.

The Navy Knew
June 26, 2023

“Place Uriah in the front line of the fiercest battle and withdraw from him, so that he may be struck down and die.” 2 Samuel 11:15(b) (NASB95).

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

The implosion of the Titan submersible was known to the U.S. Navy the moment it happened, though the U.S. Coast Guard only found debris of the wreckage.

Underwater microphones, which are used to detect enemy submarines, detected the implosion. This information was reported up the Naval chain of command immediately.

If the Biden administration knew immediately that the Titan imploded, why did they sit on the information? Did they wait to disclose it in order to sabotage the IRS Whistleblower’s testimony about Hunter Biden?

Avoid Them
June 23, 2023

"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
June 22, 2023

“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!
