“You will know them by their fruits.”  Matthew 7:16(a) (NASB).

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

The next few weeks of SCOTUS decisions will likely be the defining moment of former President Trump’s legacy in office having filled three vacancies on the nation’s highest court. There are 33 decisions to be announced this June.

They include everything from the likely reversal or Roe, to 2nd Amendment Rights, Religious Liberty, Parental Rights and the extent of the leviathan administrative state’s power.

June 2022 will be the month in which we’ll get the most robust clarity to date as to the nature of the newly constituted Trump Supreme Court, considering the wide array of socially impactful decisions to be announced. You know we’re going to tackle them on “The Hamilton Corner.”

Stay tuned.

Pastoral Worldview
June 02, 2022

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  Romans 12:2(a) (NASB).

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

According to a new nationwide survey conducted by Dr. George Barna, Director of Research at Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center, only slightly over 37% of American Pastors have a Biblical worldview.

The majority, 62%, adhere to a hybrid worldview known as syncretism.

And the numbers are even more startling when you consider surveyed Children’s Pastors and Youth Pastors. It showed only 12% of them have a Biblical worldview.

No wonder our nation is what it’s become.

This evidence demonstrates that America’s greatest need is repentance and that repentance must start in the House of God.

81 Million, Eh?
June 01, 2022

“And I will make boys their princes, and infants shall rule over them.”  Isaiah 3:4 (ESV).

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

According to an audit tool provided by software company SpartkToro, it has found 49.3% of the 22.4 million followers of Mr. Robinette’s official @POTUS Twitter account are fake bot accounts.

The information was unearthed due to Elon Musk’s due diligence query following his bid to buy Twitter.

So, the man who got over 81 million votes in the 2020 presidential election, the most popular presidential candidate in American history, can’t even get 15 million Twitter followers?


Prior to being banned from Twitter, I’m pretty sure former President Trump had over 60 million people following him there. Ain’t that something?!??

Be Transformed
May 31, 2022

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect” Romans 12:2 (ESV).

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

Paul’s epistle to the Romans was written to believers. This verse highlights the fact that it’s possible for Christians to be conformed to the world’s ways.

The word “conformed” there means to be squeezed into the mold of another. Rather than to be squeezed into the world’s mold, the Lord requires us to be transformed by having our minds renewed by God’s Word.

Everything about us must be held up to the light of Scripture. And whenever there’s any discrepancy, we must be transformed.

Doers of the Word
May 30, 2022

But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.  James 1:22.

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

This Scripture underscores the harrowing reality that permeates the life of many who profess to be Christians. The blessing of being a Christ follower comes not only from hearing God’s Word, but obeying it.

James continues, “for if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror.  For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.  But the one who looks into the perfect law of liberty and perseveres, being not a hearer who forgets, but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing."

Payday Loan Sharks
May 27, 2022

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

Newly published information from Lifeway Research shows 77% of self-identified Christians in dozens of states think it’s a sin to lend money to someone who can’t afford to pay it back. Still, few say payday loans are immoral and one in six Christians have admitted to taking out a high-interest payday loan.

The federal government’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau says the typical two-week payday loan charges the equivalent of a 400% interest rate.

These “sharks” prey on the poor, elderly, and most vulnerable in society.

Sound the alarm and make sure your family, church, and neighborhood steer clear of this vermin.

“And who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this” Esther 4:14.

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

Esther, a young girl became Queen of the Persian Empire when Israel was subject to Persian rule. A wicked man named Haman tried to get the King to exterminate all Jews. Esther, a Jew herself, was Queen when this genocidal conspiracy was brought to bear. But her uncle Mordecai put her royal position in perspective.

“Perhaps God made you Queen for this very moment, to intervene on behalf of the Jewish people.”

Like Esther, perhaps God gave you the platform, position and influence you have for this very moment, to stand against darkness. Perhaps you were born for such a time as this.

An Ordinary Giant Slayer
May 25, 2022

David, the son of Jesse, just an ordinary giant slayer.

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

David’s battle with Goliath is an epic drama where the little boy stands in God’s power to conquer the Philistine giant.

David didn’t awaken that morning expecting to slay a giant. He didn’t stroll in with an entourage after a rugged mountain range training camp like Rocky in Rocky IV. He was just a regular kid bringing his brothers’ lunch. But fully confident in God’s immeasurable power, though he saw Goliath, David never acknowledged him as a giant, saying, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine who dares defy the Lord of hosts?”

When regular people are fully persuaded, fully confident in God’s power, giant’s fall.

The Source of America's Greatness
May 20, 2022

What is the source of America's greatness? Alexis de Tocqueville, a 19th century French political thinker and philosopher, had this exact same question.

This is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.

On the heels of the French Revolution, he came to America in 1831 to investigate America's ascendency. In doing so, he found that America's greatness did not lie in her economic system. It did not lie in her banking system. Nor did it lie in her educational system.

He found that America's pulpits, aflamed with righteousness, was the source of America's greatness. He opined that America is great because she is good, but when America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.

Let us pray for restoration of the flame of righteousness in our pulpits.

Principles Matter
May 19, 2022

What would it take for you to compromise your principles?

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

Recently I heard a statement that went like this, “I don’t think principles matter if you can’t get elected.”

Principles form the core of who you are.  Principles form the foundation of a civil society.

George Washington in his farewell address identified religion and morality as indispensable supports.

“In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness,” George Washington said.

It makes me think of a scripture.  “What would it profit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his soul?”

What would it profit a man to gain an election yet lose his principles?

Inexhaustible Grace
May 18, 2022

“I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because He judged me faithful, appointing me to His service.”  1 Timothy 1:12 (ESV).

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

In Paul’s first letter to Timothy, he expressed his awe, wonder and amazement at the inexhaustible grace and mercy of God in that He saw fit not only to regenerate Paul, but to also find him worthy for appointment to Gospel ministry.

Paul knows his history as a blasphemer and a terrorist who sought to destroy The Way of Christ following.

He stands as a witness to the fact, that no one—and I mean no one— is beyond the grace of God.

Keep praying for your unsaved loved ones!

It's Them
May 17, 2022

“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.

Inventors of Evil
May 16, 2022

“Slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil.”  Romans 1:30(a) (NASB).

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

As the possible end of Roe draws nigh, several states are doing their level-best to enshrine themselves as the most faithful adherents to the murderous abortion death cult.

Senate Bill 669 in Maryland, also known as the Pregnant Person’s Freedom Act, could allow babies to be murdered 28 days after birth should the bill pass.

California Assembly Bill 2223 could also legalize infanticide for weeks, months, or even years after a child is born should it pass.

These pieces of legislation reveal the utter barbarity that consumes the hearts of some in our nation. This is evil.

Freedom Feeds Prosperity
May 13, 2022

“It gives understanding to the simple.”  Psalm 119:130(a) (NASB).

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

Who knew so many “Americans” feared free speech. With Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, many revealed their penchant for the totalitarian censorship of ideas and opinions they don’t agree with.

What they clearly don’t realize is by embracing censorship they would move our nation as a whole into a far weaker position.

A robust marketplace of ideas strengthens our national body politic and creates the most production and most innovation for maximum societal flourishing.

There’s a reason why the light bulb, the automobile, Silicon Valley and much more were all created in America and not Russia or China.

Freedom feeds prosperity.

Threatened and Harrassed
May 12, 2022

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.”  John 10:10(a) (NASB).

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

Two women at the Edna Mahan Women’s Correctional Facility in Clinton, NJ were reportedly impregnated by a male inmate who was admitted into the women’s prison after identifying himself as a woman.

Since 2019, the women’s prison has been admitting male inmates who claim to be women and it now houses 27 men under the banner of transgenderism.

Women inmates have complained that they feel threatened and have been harassed by the male prisoners.

And by the way, the male prisoners identifying themselves as women are not required to undergo sex reassignment surgery prior to being admitted into the women’s prison.

Really FDA?
May 11, 2022

“Do not trust in princes, In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation.”  Psalm 146:3 (NASB).

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

The FDA is now warning the public that prenatal screening tests are often wrong.

The FDA said it is providing this warning “to educate patients AND HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS to help reduce the inappropriate use of NIPS tests.”

The FDA’s Dr. Jeff Shuren added, “While genetic non-invasive prenatal screening tests are widely used today these tests have not been reviewed by the FDA and may be making claims about their performance and use that are not based in sound science.”

How many people have made irreversible decisions concerning their unborn children based on these unreliable pre-natal screenings?

Draft Downs Roe
May 10, 2022

“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail.”  Habakkuk 2:3(a) (NASB).

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

A leaked Draft Opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, revealed that a majority of Supreme Court justices have preliminarily voted to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The final decision on the matter has not been announced yet.

However, should the draft opinion become the final decision, after a near 50 year battle, the era of Roe would be over. Authority over the care and treatment of the most vulnerable among us, unborn babies, would be decided at the state level… the way it should’ve remained all along.

The Father's Love
May 09, 2022

But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion and ran and embraced him and kissed him.

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

When the prodigal son parable is discussed, the focus is usually placed on the young son who squandered his inheritance yet returned home when he came to himself.

But if you look closely at the biblical text, you’ll see it actually reveals the inexhaustible love of the father.

Jesus’ story telling reveals that this was no usual earthly father.  When the young son squandered all and brought shame upon himself and his family, the father sees him from a distance, runs to him and restores him.

This is our heavenly father.

One Necessary Thing
May 06, 2022

"Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but [only] one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her."  Luke 10:41(b)-42 (NASB).

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

After Jesus resurrected their brother, Lazarus, Martha and Mary, hosted a dinner party in their Bethany home. You can imagine the excitement and the buzz that swirled through the town and the number of people who came because the Rabbi had returned.

Martha busied herself with preparations. Mary sat at Jesus’s feet, basking in his teaching.

Life’s demands can easily consume our focus, but one thing is necessary: that we remain at Jesus’ feet, anchored in His word!

“And having sent into Macedonia two of his helpers, Timothy and Erastus, he himself stayed in Asia for a while.”  Acts 19:22 (ESV).

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

As Apostle Paul navigated torrential ministerial waters in Ephesus, he sent Timothy and Erastus ahead of him as an advance team to Macedonia. Paul also includes Erastus as one who greeted the church at Rome in Romans 16:23 in which Paul described Erastus’ job as the City Treasurer in Corinth.

In 1929, archeologists in Corinth discovered a mid-1st century latin inscription that read “Erastus in return for his aedileship laid the pavement at his own expense.” The modern equivalent of a 1st century aedile would be a City Manager.

The Bible is trustworthy!
