The Snare Is Broken
And The Fowler In Trouble
“Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken and we are escaped” Psalm 124;7.
What is snare?, snare is anything that traps or entangles someone unawares. Something so deceptive but which catches it’s victims unawares. It could be physical or spiritual, it is in most cases deadly. The snare vary from person to person. The snare on your way , may not be the snare on my way or another persons’ way. Of a truth, the devil places snares in front of every body. What you eat,drink, where you go, the friends you keep,the things you put on your body, the things you smoke, your way of speaking, your way of life , may be the snare before you and the devil waits patiently until you are right into the pit that decides your final fate.
The devil traps mankind through many ways , ways that are probably justified in the eyes of men but not God. " There is a way that seemed right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16;25. You may be snared into hell through what you wear,eat,drink,smoke.Gamblers and drug merchants are drawn into the devils net through the initial big gains that emanates from the exercise. Summarized,many people have been trapped into the devil's net through , wine wealth and woman. What ever you are doing that is lucrative but not the will of God will certainly be a snare to you. Many are languishing in jail houses because of one lucrative loophole to found,which later became the way to jail house and hell.
" Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the foe.Proverbs 6;5 "
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the Fowler, and from the noisome pestilence".Psalms 91;3.
STEPS TO THE DESTRUCTION OF SNARES..
Salvation---This word SALVATION is used of the deliverance of the Israelites from the “Egyptians(Ex.14:13),and of deliverance generally from evil or danger” .In the New Testament it is specially used with reference to the great deliverance from the guilt and the pollution of sin “wrought out by Jesus Christ, ”the great salvation”(Heb.2:3).”
Salvation through repentance will erode ignorance on our part and set us on course to walk with God ,who will eventually lead us out of the snaky routes bedevilled with the snare of the fowler.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge ,I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God ,I will also forget thy children(Hosea 4:6)
Lack of knowledge of the word of God expose people to snares of the devil and his agents.
Sanctification—1 Peter 1:2
Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father ,through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
"But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:" 2 Thessalonians 2;13.
Serving the Lord Faithfully—when you serve the Lord with all your heart, he will build a hedge around you and all that you have and protect you from the snare of the devil who roams about seeking whom be may devour.
“Then Satan answered the Lord ,and said ,Doth Job fear God for nought?.Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that ha hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
11.But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath ,and he will curse thee to thy face.”Job 1:9—
“But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God ,and thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all with all thy soul” Deuteronomy 4:29.
Serving the Lord Obediently—“ When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God ,and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
(For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;)he will not forsake thee ,neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he swore unto them .”Dueteronomy.4;30-31.He will certainly deliver you from the snares of the Fowler.
Serving the Lord ,Paying your vows—“ but unto the place which the Lord your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come. And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings and your sacrifices and your tithes and heave offerings of your hand and your vows and your free will offering, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks. And there ye shall eat before the Lord your God and ye shall rejoice in all that you put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the Lord thy God hath blessed thee—Duet 12; 5—7.
Serving The Lord Fasting And Praying--- “The Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer. Go gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan and fast ye for me and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day. I also and my maidens will fast likewise and so will I go unto the king which is not according to the law and if I perish, I perish. Esther 4;15-16.
Serving The Lord Evangelizing... And how shalt they preach, except they be sent ? as it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things, but they have not obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing by the word of God” Romans 10;15-17.
Be sober ,be vigilant ,for sobriety and vigilance will enable you escape the snares that the enemy has put on your way.
