Not Equal

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked.”  Psalm 1:1(a) (ESV).

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

An appalling video circulated on social media, showing a smiling Iranian husband parading the severed head of his 17-year-old wife through the streets, is causing shock and outrage in the country and around the world

The footage, obtained by the New York Post, shows the murdering husband grinning as he strolled through a neighborhood in Ahvaz, a city in southwestern Iran, on Saturday, Feb. 5, with his wife Mona Heydari’s head in one hand and a bloodied blade in the other.

Contrary to regressive sentiment, no! Not all civilizations or cultures are equal.  There is something called evil. And this is pure evil!!!

Intentionally Open

“…Having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place.”  Acts 17:26(b) (ESV).

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

After 11 months, the southern “border” remains wide open, if not functionally erased. Illegal aliens cascade across. Between Feb. 1 and Dec. 31, 2021, on Biden’s watch, Customs and Border Protection apprehended a record 1,956,596 illegal aliens on the southern “frontier,” versus 511,192 one year earlier, under then-President Donald Trump—up 283%. And that’s just the ones they caught!

The Biden administration has had an entire year to improve this rapidly deteriorating mess. Instead, they haven’t lifted a cuticle. This is not accidental folks. This is intentional.

It's Them

“And they came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man, the one who had had the legion, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid.”  Mark 5:15 (ESV).

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

Mark described the Gadarean demoniac, who said “My name is Legion, for we are many” as living among the tombs, breaking free from shackles and chains, howling in the night and cutting himself with stones.

But Jesus cast the demons out of him. And when the townspeople saw him with Jesus, free, clothed in his right mind… that is when they were afraid.

If you’ve recently been freed by Jesus don’t be surprised if it makes your old friends uncomfortable. It’s not you. It’s them.

A Bill For This?

“Professing to be wise, they became fools.”  Romans 1:22 (ESV).

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

We are literally living in a cultural “The Emperor is wearing no clothes moment.” Senator Tom Cotton has filed a bill to stop the Biden administration’s plan to house federal prisoners according their perceived “gender identity” rather than by their biological sex.

Senator Cotton said,

President Biden’s plan to house male and female prisoners together will put women in danger. Documented cases prove that placing men—including ones who ‘identify’ as female—in women’s prisons puts female inmates at increased risk of sexual assault.

Uh, you think!

This is yet another demonstration of regressive willingness to literally destroy women in the name of trans-ideology.

February 11, 202200:01:00

“For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie.”  Romans 1:25 (ESV).

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

A major problem with Goebbels Inc. and their big tech cohorts’ sycophantic zeal to censor speech to limit the flow of misinformation is that many of the very things they deemed “misinformation” five minutes ago are now evidentially established as facts.

For example, eight months ago they said, get vaxxed and you can’t catch or spread schMOVID. We now know that’s not true.

They said cloth masks work! We now know that’s not true.

If you said you thought it was possible that schMOVID came from a lab, you were  censored banned. Now, that’s the most likely origin theory.

Free speech is a necessary ingredient for FREEDOM!

Will Thomas

“They exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.”  Romans 1:23 (ESV).

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

Will Thomas competed on the men’s swim team at the University of Pennsylvania in relative obscurity for three years. He then declared himself to be a transgender woman, started competing on the women’s swim team and began demolishing long held women’s swimming records.

Now, several of Thomas’ female swim teammates have expressed discomfort with having this man, whose told them that he’s attracted to women, exposing his obviously male genitalia when he changes and showers with them in their locker room.

Regressivism is willing to destroy women in favor of trans-insanity.

Empirical Evidence

“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.”  Proverbs 18:2 (ESV).

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

Professors Jonas Herby, Lars Jonung and Steve Hanke have just published a new study for The Johns Hopkins Institute for Applied Economics that provided a systematic review and meta-analysis as to whether there is empirical evidence to support the belief that “lockdowns” reduce COVID-19 mortality.

They concluded,

… lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, [but] they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.

If lockdowns don’t and didn’t save lives why did we do them?

Allison Fluke-Ekren

“For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.”  Matthew 15:19 (ESV).

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

A Kansas woman named Allison Fluke-Ekren defected to Syria and rose through the ranks of ISIS to lead a battalion of female terrorists.

She faked her death in 2018 to evade capture by the U.S. Government, but she was ultimately arrested on the Syrian battlefield and extradited last week to face terrorism charges in the U.S.

She’s accused of recruiting terrorists to attack an American college as well planning terrorist attacks at American shopping malls.

Fluke-Ekren reportedly believed that any attack that didn’t kill a large number of people was a waste of resources.

Inalienable Rights

Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Psalm 119:89 (ESV)

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

The American republic was founded on the principle that rights are given to us by God, not man.  As a result, men nor government can take them away. That’s why our Declaration of Independence refers to our rights as inalienable rights.

Government’s role then is to protect the rights that God has given to us.

The first freedom listed in the bill of rights, which government is entrusted to protect, is religious liberty.  The founders did this because they know that free exercise of religion is the fulcrum for all liberty.

Wherever the flame of religious liberty is extinguished, all liberty is imperiled.

Step-Down Faith

Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, "Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.  This is a desert place."

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

At the height of a Holy Spirit outpouring in Samaria, when the gospel was being preached with great power, and droves of people were converting to follow Christ, the Lord instructed Philip to leave Samaria and head south to Gaza.  Philip didn't know what divine appointment awaited him.  Through his ministry to the Ethiopian eunuch, the gospel would spread to Africa.

He left the crowd to serve one.

I call this "step-down faith."

It's easy to step up for the attention and applause of the masses, but do we have step-down faith?

Heaven's Preview (1)

"There were added that day about 3000 souls."

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

The day of Pentecost concluded with 3000 converts being added to the initial body of 120 believers.  Then that 3120 spent time together daily going to the temple and interacting in each other’s homes. They devoted themselves continually to the apostle’s teaching, fellowship, sharing meals together and praying together.

The 3120 that made up the early church came from Turkey, the middle east and Africa, and included Arabs and Romans.  In addition to the geographic and ethnic diversity, they also spoke different languages.  Yet they were made one family in Christ Jesus.

Scripture has the answer to the issues we face today.

Turn Aside to See

"And Moses said, ‘I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned’” Exodus 3:3.

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

In the burning bush encounter Scripture records that it began as Moses kept Jethro’s flock Exodus 3:1.

“When the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, 'Moses, Moses!' And he said, 'Here I am'" Exodus 3:4.

Notice, God didn’t speak to Moses until He gave full attention to what God was trying to show him.

Diligent attention to daily duty is necessary.  We must be careful, however, not to allow duty to become an idol.  Are our hearts still sensitive to God? Can God still get our attention?

One Body

"For just as the body is one and has many members and all the members of the body, though they be many are one body, so it is with Christ.  For the body does not consist of one member, but of many."

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

Look briefly at one of your fingers.

You've just witness one of the greatest displays of God's creative intent there is.  No other person in all the world, even an identical twin, shares your fingerprint.

God specifically designed each of us to be unique.  That means we shouldn't try to carbon-copy anyone else in the Christian faith.

If God made you an arm in His body, or a kneecap, praise be to our glorious God for drawing us to become a part of His body.

How freeing it is to realize that we were never meant to copy anyone but Jesus.

Rewarded Confidence

“Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward” Hebrews 10:35 (ESV).

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

Sometimes there’s a delay between crying out to God in prayer and seeing those prayers answered.

It is imperative for us in those times that we don’t waver in our confidence in our God.

The next verse goes on to say, “For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.” Hebrews 10:36 (ESV).

You see, the delay between supplication and delivered answer is one of the ways God develops endurance in us.

He desires that the roots of our faith grow down deep, that we become trees planted by rivers of living water … steadfast, immovable, always abounding in His work. In this we grow beyond superficial Christianity.

What About John

Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?”

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

At the climax of the account when Jesus restored Peter’s personal relationship with him, and Peter’s call to ministry, He saw John following them.

Jesus had just predicted that Peter would give his life for the Gospel, when Peter said, “What about John, LORD?”

Jesus responded, “What does he have to do with your calling? You follow me.”

With those words, Jesus hit a consistent flaw of the human condition.  We derive value and self-worth by comparing ourselves to other people.

Your ups, your downs, your failures, your victories were never meant to be compared to other people.

We have been called to serve an audience of One. The only approval you need is His.

Living intercession

"So Aaron took it as Moses said and ran into the midst of the assembly. And behold, the plague had already begun among the people. And he put on the incense and made atonement for the people. And he stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stopped" Numbers 16:47-48 (ESV).

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

Often, when the concept of intercession is raised, we normally think about prayer and we should. Prayer is one form of intercession.

Here, we see another – living intercession.

At the climax of a plague, Aaron runs into the fray, armed with incense, and where he stands, the plague stops. Aaron literally stands between the living and the dead.

May God move us to be living intercessors for our day, and where we take our stand in Christ, the plague stops!

Under God

"You shall have no other gods before me."

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

In 1954 Americans lived in constant threat of nuclear attack from the USSR.  When America's children practiced duck-and-cover in classrooms across the country, President Eisenhower realized that our pledge had no distinction from any other republic.

After hearing a sermon on February 7th of that year, President Eisenhower signed a law adding the words "Under God" to our pledge.  The president recognized the true source of unity, of indivisibility, is unwavering submission to the God of the Bible.

As we go about our day, let us remember the only true source of national unity is submission to almighty God.

Go to the Other Side

"Immediately He made the disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He dismissed the crowds” Matthew 14:22.

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

Here Jesus instructed His disciples to cross a lake and meet Him on the other side of it. As they went, they were met by a violent wind storm that halted their progress.

Often in our Christian lives we receive clear instruction from the LORD, only to be met by an obstacle that halts our progress. We must, however, recognize that the onset of a storm does not cancel out God’s instructions.

Halted progress does not equal denied destination.

When Jesus directed the disciples to go to the other side, He absolutely meant for them to get there.

Delay does not equal denial.

Fatherhood Matters

"Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."

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

Statistics show that children who grow up without a father are 5 times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime. They’re 9 times more likely to drop out of school and 20 times more likely to end up in prison. Yet the percentage of children born to fatherless homes has skyrocketed in America. As of 2015, 25 percent of white, 53 percent of Hispanic and 73 percent of black babies are born into fatherless homes.

While Scripture teaches that the weight of raising children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord falls upon fathers, seems like we need a movement that says fatherhood matters.

Saul's Armor

"Then David said to Saul, 'I cannot go with these, for I have not tested them.' So David put them off.

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

As David prepared to face Goliath, Saul tried to outfit David with Saul’s personal armor. But David didn’t have Saul’s armor when he faced the lion or the bear, and David realized he did not need the armor to slay Goliath.

Today, many Christians yield to the temptation to be hipper, cooler, and even a little fuzzy on the clear teachings of Scripture in order to face the Goliaths of our day. But Jesus said, “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men" John 12:32.

We don’t need a cool light show to be an ambassador for Christ. All we need is to offer what we have freely received.

We know the transforming power of Christ because He has transformed us.
