Just words....

I wrote this and sent it to my address book just prior to the election and decided that I would like for anyone to be able to read it, should we get the opportunity to vote freely again soon...

Proverbs 24:21-22 says: (Revised New American Standard)

21My son, fear the LORD and the king;
Do not associate with those who are given to change,
22For their calamity will rise suddenly,
And who knows the ruin that comes from both of them?

Have you read that scripture lately? What does "given to change" mean? I believe it means change for the sake of change. Don't you find it interesting that the bible has pointed out change, but hasn't said what kind of change? It surely sounds like change with no reasoning (or substance).

Heard any political campaigns that have been preaching that lately? Seen any politicians on a certain presidential campaign ticket that has that word (change) plastered all over his podium and half the signs carried by his followers? (Large hint: I'm speaking about the Obama campaign).

Don't be fooled by his eloquent words. One particular presidential campaigner said this (referring to some of the more eloquent speeches given by current and some past candidates): "They're just words, just words." Interestingly enough, the person that said that was Obama.

I just gave you a biblical reason not to vote for him. If that's not enough, consider the fact that he has no experience and more importantly, absolutely no track record to determine what he really will do once in office. He has.......just words.

Jesus said in Matthew 7:20:
So then, you will know them by their fruits.

If you're interested, the amplified bible has an fascinating version of the above scripture:

21My son, [reverently] fear the Lord and the king, and do not associate with those who are given to change [of allegiance, and are revolutionary],

22For their calamity shall rise suddenly, and who knows the punishment and ruin which both [the Lord and the king] will bring upon [the rebellious]?

Do I think we need change in our government? You bet I do. I doubt you could find a single American that doesn't think it needs to change. But the change it needs, is to go back to what our forefathers envisioned, not an even bigger version of this over sized gorilla it has become... We're a nation that is running away from God and His principles. If we don't return, we're in big trouble. (Why I included the 2nd verse)

I'm Ricky and I pray you'll understand this message.
God bless you and thank you for your time.
