Proverbs of a 40 yr old man

The fowler's snare. Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. For surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare. Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You use to followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. Yes, you flew into so many traps by the enemy being held captive in your sin that produces death. But now you have put your hope in the Lord who renews your strength. You soar high above the ways of the world on wings like eagles; able to run and not grow weary, able to walk by faith and not be faint in despair. The Enemy of our souls is the fowler of man. He lays a snare down to hold man captive to sin and slavery of evil desires. We are baited into temptation and entangled in wickedness. The proud have set a trap to catch us; they have stretched out a net; they have placed traps all along the way.

Praise God Jesus comes to free us from the cords of sin that so easily entangles us! And He teaches us to fly higher than this world and its ways to avoid the trappings of the Enemy. We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowler; the net is torn, and we have slipped away. Flying High like eagles into the heavens where angels prostate and fall, and even trot. There in the LORD's presence we find rest for our souls flying high with our minds connected to Christs mind. Our hearts in perfect peace because we are stayed on Him. Oh Jesus, keep me from the snares the enemy has laid for me, and from the lures of evildoers. Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. Her towers will be overgrown with thorns, her fortresses with thistles and briers. She will become a haunt for jackals, an abode for ostriches. Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler. The fowlers snare has been set and we must fly higher than the ways of man, than the ways of Babylon. My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. Amen. The LORD Jesus flies above us, leading us unto salvation and eternal life. Stay in his presence, under the shadow of the Almighty. Then His people will dwell in a peaceful place, in safe and secure places of rest.
