“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!

Cuomo Harrassed
August 09, 2021

“But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”  Matthew 5:28 (NASB).

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

The New York A.G. announced that an independent investigation has revealed NY Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed numerous women, including current and former staffers from 2013 to 2020 in violation of state and federal laws.

They also found the Cuomo administration was a “hostile work environment, “rife with fear and intimidation,” which included at least one instance of retaliation against a former employee who accused him of wrongdoing.

Elected officials across the political spectrum have called for Cuomo to resign.

To date, he’s refused to do so.

ProLife Bank
August 05, 2021

“Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.”  Psalm 127:3 (NASB).

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

Nick Vujicic, an entrepreneur and evangelist born without his four limbs due to a rare genetic condition, plans to launch “ProLife Bank — a financial institution that will serve as an alternative to mainstream commercial banks, most of which donate heavily to Planned Parenthood.

Vujicic believes he’s in a unique position to address issues related to abortion, adoption and foster care.

About 90% of banks give toward abortion. He says Christians must have better options for using God’s money.

He added, “50% of ProLife Bank’s net profits will be given to Judeo-Christian organizations to further the Kingdom of God.”

Homeschool Surge
August 04, 2021

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”  Ephesians 6:4 (ESV).

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

Though the pandemic disrupted family life across the U.S., some parents are grateful for one consequence: They’re now homeschooling their children.

Familial reasons vary greatly. Some families are responding to their children’s special needs; others seek to inculcate their Christian beliefs in their children’s instruction. Some thought homeschooling would be temporary. Now, they can’t imagine someone else training their children.

Based on U.S. Census Bureau data, the rate of homeschooling households rose to 11% by September 2020. That’s more than double the rate from just six months prior.

In America-In Iran
August 03, 2021

“Do you suppose, O man--you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself--that you will escape the judgment of God?”  Romans 2:3 (ESV).

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

Iran’s Islamic government is cutting off internet access following widespread anti-regime protests in the Khuzestan province.

In America, NPR published a hit piece on the Daily Wire, The Blaze, Breitbart and Western Journal in which it called for big tech to work harder and do more  to minimize misinformation coming from conservative outlets.

NPR is taxpayer funded. It’s the closest thing we have to literal government run media. And NPR is calling for the minimization of the influence of ideas and information that doesn’t comport with their preferred narratives.

Hide and Psaki
August 02, 2021

“Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.”  Proverbs 12:22 (NASB).

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

After Texas legislators fled the Lone Star state to prohibit the passage of an election integrity bill there, they sought sanctuary in D.C. This reportedly led to the spread of COVID-19 in the White House, among those who’d taken the injections.

That led a reporter to ask Press Secretary Jen Psaki,

Why won’t [the Administration] just release the number of breakthrough cases you’ve had of vaccinated staffers? Why not just provide the number? Are you trying to hide something?

To which Psaki replied, “Why do you need that information?”

But she brings “truth and transparency,” right?

Political Anti-Science
July 30, 2021

“The simple believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps.”  Proverbs 14:15 (ESV).

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

Marty Makary and a team of researchers at Johns Hopkins University have published results from their own study which shows people pushing forced COVID injections onto children are in fact fighting against the science.

Makary and his team reviewed about 48,000 cases of children under 18 reported to have COVID between April and August 2020. Their study found a mortality rate of zero among children without a pre-existing medical condition like leukemia.

This doesn’t mean COVID should be taken lightly. But it should cause politicians and others to shut up and let parents decide what’s best for their children.

Loving Rebuke
July 29, 2021

“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 28, 2021

"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 27, 2021

“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 26, 2021
“So the chief priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well.” John 12:

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 23, 2021

“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.

Mercy and Truth
July 22, 2021

"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 21, 2021


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.

Avoid Them
July 20, 2021

"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
July 19, 2021

“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!

The Life Giver
July 16, 2021

"I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14 (NASB).

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

A generation has been taught they descend from animals, that there is no God.

They’ve been taught they are nothing more than a cosmic accident, they have no purpose and life has no meaning.

Life’s meaninglessness has been punctuated for them by the 60 million children who’ve been slaughtered in the womb… and counting.

But society is shocked when they act out exactly as they’ve been taught… like animals with no conscience.

Respect for human life begins with respect for the Life-Giver.

America needs repentance!

Lunar Communion
July 15, 2021

“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).

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

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
July 14, 2021

"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
July 13, 2021

“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 1) “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.
