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 under constant threat of nuclear attack from the USSR.

When American 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 all 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.

Gates are Defensive

I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

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

What are gates? They are defensive tools used to keep stuff out, to keep an advancing force at bay.

Too often the enemy is successful in putting Christians on defense, when the facts are the Lord established His church as an aggressive, offensive, territory-taking body.

The Lord never meant for us to sit on the sidelines of life or to cower in the corner as a result of the wickedness in our culture.

A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. The light of the world cannot be contained.

The Lord is building His church and the mamby-pamby gates of Hell shall not prevail against us.

The D-Word

Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scoffers.

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

One word has proven to be debilitating in our society: the D-word.  Discrimination.

What we fail to realize is discrimination is not automatically a dirty concept. We discriminate against thieves and murderers when we send them to prison. We discriminated against sexual predators by keeping them away from children. And yes, we rightly discriminated against men when we keep them out of women’s restrooms.

According to Psalm 1, we have to discriminate against the counsel of the wicked in order to be blessed. Good thing God isn’t debilitated by the D-word.

Leak Investigated?

“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.

A draft majority opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito,  in the Dobbs case which indicated 5 of the 9 SCOTUS justices had voted to overturn Roe and Casey was leaked to the media on May 2nd.

By my count, the leak could’ve only come from one the Justices themselves or one of their law clerks. The latter is more likely in my view. But, the investigation into the leak has just gotten to where clerks cell phone records are being collected and they’re having to sign affidavits… now!?!?!!?

Leak investigations in the digital age are not rocket surgery. That is, if you truly want to investigate.

What we're witnessing is a lack of will, not capacity.

Some Homelessness

“God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.”  1 John 1:5(b) (NASB).

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

San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced her 5-year plan to end homelessness in her city… well, that is transgender homelessness.

I wish I was kidding.

She literally announced a $6.5 million budget proposal to end homelessness within next five years for the transgendered, the gender non-conforming, and LGBTQ+ youth in Frisco.

So what about the homeless San Franciscans who don’t fit any of the aforementioned categories? Any hope for them?

Any recent visitors to San Fransisco will tell you their streets teem with excrement, largely deposited by homeless people. Mayor Breed has shown that excrement also comes from the Mayor’s office.

Ole Jim Eagle

“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.

According to the State of Georgia, early voting turnout during its 2022 midterm primary election was 168% than it was in 2018, their last gubernatorial primary, and 212% higher than it was was during the 2020 presidential primary year.

Though corporations tried to beat each other in the woke olympics, Major League Baseball moved it’s all-star game, and Mr. J. Robinette called Georgia’s 2021 election integrity law “Jim Crow 2.0,… Jim Eagle,” Georgians voted in record numbers, including minority voters.

Who’d a thunk it! Voter I.D. law and increased voter participation.

Uvalde

“For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders.”  Luke 18:16 (NASB).

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

The Texas Department of Public Safety has confirmed that at least 19 elementary school children and two teachers were murdered by an 18 year old at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, TX.

The massacre has spurred the typical knee-jerk calls for more gun control legislation.

We never see this type of reaction when other instrumentalities like knives or motor vehicles are used to perpetrate heinous crimes.

The issue isn’t the instrumentality. The real issue is the sin-sick human heart. There’s only one way to address it, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Avoiding the true cause avoids the only cure.

Arizona Department of Miseducation

Jesus said “let the children come to me, and do not hinder them.”  Luke 18:16 (NASB).

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

The Arizona Department of Education links to chat rooms in its website for LGBTQ+ minors to discuss sex and gender with adult moderators present without their parents knowing.

The department specifically points minors to two different websites which rely on adult volunteers or staff members to facilitate their chat rooms.

And, they don’t verify the age of those joining the chats beyond asking applicants to self report a birth date.

This is being done with Arizona tax payers dollars by the Arizona Department of Education!

The sexualization of children is happening under the guise of “education.”

June 2022

“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

“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?

“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?

Right!!!!

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

“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

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

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.

Esther

“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.
