Appointed Time

“And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.”  Acts 17:26 (NASB).

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

The scripture teaches that God has sovereignly “determined the boundaries” of our habitation and the “appointed” the times in which we would live.

That means the fact that you live right now in the United States of America, in the 21st Century, following the November 2020 elections is not a mere coincidence. It is the time and place that God has appointed for you. This isn’t a time to shrink back. It’s our moment to contend! May the Remnant arise to meet our moment.

In Jesus’ name.

California 10-8

“Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own [nature,] for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44 (b) (NASB).

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

The Newport-Mesa school district in California has implemented health education  textbooks that claim there are over 10 sexual orientations and 8 so-called genders.

The textbook, titled “Comprehensive Health Skills for High School,” includes androgynous, bigender, gender non-conforming, gender questioning and nonbinary among the purported options for high schoolers.

The listed sexual orientations include androsexual, polysexual, skolioksexual, demisexual and gynesexual.

But, Regressives bristle when you say they are grooming children for sexual behavior and normalizing extramarital sexual contact.

Everyone is welcomed out of the cultural closet except Christ-followers.

Fought to Conceal

“But they became futile in their thinking.”Romans 1:21(b) (ESV).

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

A little girl at Fort Riley Middle School in Kansas was socially transitioned at the school but it was intentionally concealed from her parents. Social transition is where agree to treat a person, or student in this case, as if their identity is opposite of their sex.

Pamela Ricard, a Christian teacher at the school, refused to go along with the charade. As a result, the school suspended Ms. Ricard. She secured representation by Alliance Defending Freedom, sued the school and district and Ms. Ricard was ultimately vindicated… after Kansas School officials socially transitioned a child and fought to conceal it from her parents!

Pays for PhDs

“The wicked borrows and does not pay back.” Psalm 37:21(a) (NASB).

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

Mr. Robinette announced his administration’s plan to “cancel”  $10,000 of student loan debt for borrowers with individual incomes under $125,000. Pell Grant recipients get up to $20,000 in “cancellation.”

There’s about $1.6 trillion in American student loan debt. 50% of it is carried by people who borrowed money to finance graduate school, medical school, law school and PhD studies. The other half is owed by people who financed two-year and 4-year degrees… which likely includes later post-graduate students.

You can’t disappear debt. It isn’t being cancelled. It’s being re-apportioned. The American taxpayer pays for PhDs we didn’t sign up for.

Oh, Sam

“For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.” Matthew 12:34(b) (NASB).

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

Five-time New York Times best selling author, atheist philosopher, podcaster and overall darling of Regressives Sam Harris said censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story to get Mr. Robinette elected was a conspiracy and it was the right thing to do.

He said even if there was evidence of “corpses of children in his basement” or evidence that Mr. Robinette was getting kickbacks from Ukraine or China on the laptop, Harris doesn’t care. Stopping Trump was worth it.

I share that with you because Sam Harris publicly disclosed the ethical commitment of Regressivism. Agenda advancement by any means necessary.

She Only Heard

“When we heard [it,] our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the LORD your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.” Joshua 2:11 (NASB).

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

When Israel was poised to enter the promised land, Rahab, the Canaanite harlot, risked her very life to protect YHWH’s people. This woman, whose life was filled with immorality, with no knowledge of YHWH’s law yet she risked her life for His people after only hearing of His exploits.

How much more then, should we give our lives for Him. We have His word. We know His ways. She we be any less committed?

Rahab’s conviction is provoking.

Live Locally

“And you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”  Acts 1:8(b) (NASB).

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

The 128th Psalm explains it is the individual who’s been transformed by the power of God who then builds the transformed family. Transformed families build transformed churches. Transformed churches build transformed communities and transformed communities impact the broader society.

The way forward in America is repentance and living locally. Focus intensely on your families, your local church, and your local community.

What goes on in your house is far more important that what happens in the White House.

Great commission execution must begin in Jerusalem.

Righteousness Exalts

“Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people.”  Proverbs 14:34 (NASB).

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

The prophet Isaiah diagnosed the condition of the rebellious nation of Judah prior to its conquest and exile by Nebuchadnezzar in chapter 59 of his book. He explained that Judah’s transgression separated the nation from YHWH. Due to Judah’s sinfulness truth had fallen in the streets. The consequences for their rejection of truth was that lawlessness abounded.

Similarly, truth has been rejected in our nation. Abundant lawlessness is the consequence for a nation that has turned away from the LORD. Repentance is what is needed in our nation, starting in the church. Righteousness is what exalts a nation.

New Jerusalem

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”  Revelation 21:1-2 (ESV).

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

The city lies foursquare. Its length, width, and height all equal: 1,380 miles for each dimension.

The city’s wall is 216 feet high. Twelve gates surround the city, with each gate made of a single pearl.

Streets of gold so pure their translucent.

No need for a sun. God’s glory light’s the city.

No tears. No pain.

I wouldn’t miss it for the world!

Finish Well

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.”  2 Timothy 4:7 (NASB).

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

Have you ever seen one of those track and field events where the runner starts out in blazing fashion, leading the pack for majority of the race, only to stumble just before reaching the finish line?

Starting the race well and running well are vitally important, but if we don’t finish the race well, all else can be overthrown.

The Apostle Paul penned those words, having fought the good fight, right on to the end as he faced imminent execution under Nero’s sword.

Let us all brothers and sisters set our courses to finish well.

Financial Liberation

The borrower is slave to the lender.

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

Prior to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, over 80% of American families were debt free.

Today, over 80% of the American people are saddled with debt.

I was asked recently asked what advice I could offer in the midst of the national tension we currently face. One of the things I said in response was to work toward getting completely out of debt.

So much fruitfulness and faithfulness to God has been robbed from us due to the impact of crushing debt.

One of the best things you can do for your family right now is to become debt-free.

Still the Way

"Faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”  1 Corinthians 13:13 (NASB).

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

Karl Marx, an emissary of evil, and Charles Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers,” were evangelists of diametrically opposed messages, yet they both lived in London and the same time.

In fact, when asked the name of the person he most detested, Friedrich Engels, Marx’s cohort in chaos, responded unequivocally: “Spurgeon.”

A generation later George Bernard Shaw, a hardcore communist, seethed in hatred for William Booth and his Salvation Army of volunteers.

Time and again, robust Christian witness has been the inoculate against the proliferation of Marxist poison in society.

Speech and Feet

“You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness.” 2 Timothy 3:10 (ESV).

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

Apostle Paul penned his second epistle to Timothy, now an Elder in the Church at Ephesus, about 64-65 A.D. while imprisoned in Rome awaiting his imminent execution under Nero.

In warning Timothy about the coming perilous times, marked by the increased anti-Christian persecution in the Roman empire in 64 A.D., Paul directed Timothy to his speech and his feet.

In speech, Paul gave Timothy priceless Biblical instruction. In feet, Paul left Timothy a legacy of lifestyle.

Christ-following demands consistency between speech and feet.

Moral and Religious

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19 (NASB).

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

In his October 11, 1798 address to the Massachusetts Militia, John Adams, 2nd President of the United States and founding father said,

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

He understood that in order for the American Constitutional Republic to survive long term the church in America must make disciples of its populace.

An immoral people will always destroy themselves through lawlessness. To think otherwise, is to suffer under a grand delusion.

As Ourselves

And the second is like it.  You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

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

When Queries by the pharisees concerning the greatest commandment, Jesus answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind."

He then said the second greatest commandment is, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

He didn't simply say love your neighbor.  He said Christ followers must love our neighbors as ourselves.

Christian duty requires us to employ discernment and active empathy.  We worship our Lord when we put ourselves in one another's shoes as we do life together and resolve misunderstandings.

Maturity Aid

“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.

August 25, 202200:01:00
Loving Rebuke

"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.

August 24, 202200:01:00
Refuge and Strength

"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

“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.

August 22, 202200:01:00
Killing Lazarus

"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.
