Snares of Death

In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence,
And His children will have a place of refuge.
The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life,
To turn one away from the snares of death.

The above two verses from Proverbs 14:26-27 highlight several truths. First, note that the Christian who lives by fear of (offending) the Lord will develop a strong confidence in God. This is clearly developed over time and is not a once for all achievement. Think Job.

Once this strong confidence begins to grow within the Christian, God promises His children will have a place of refuge. The word refuge means safety or protection. This does not necessarily mean we will be protected from experiencing bad things in life. It means that our hearts and minds will be kept focused on Him and in peace in spite of trials and problems that come our way, leading to our spiritual and emotional health.

Notice the next two sentences that connect fear of (offending) the Lord with a fountain of life. Who is this fountain of life? Jesus (John 7:37-39). What does that mean? This fountain of life that IS God turns us away from the snares of death.

Many different traps or snares have been used to capture wild animals. They are designed to keep the animal from breaking free, though some animals will chew off a leg caught in a snare to save their life. Certain snares kill instantly, not giving the animal any chance.

For the Christian, snares of death have to do with any sin that keeps us from being obedient to the Lord. All completed sin brings spiritual death, resulting in broken fellowship with God. What is it in your life or mine that might be killing our fellowship with the Lord?

Too many people today – including Christians – are governed by fear. It is a palpable fear of contracting COVID-19, which many equate to death. However, for the average person, CV-19 has a recovery rate of 99.98%, meaning if the person is in general good health, their chances of recovering from it are far better than relying on the efficacy of the CV-19 vax (a 95% efficacy rate at best).

How do you react to CV-19? Have you lived in dire fear of catching it for the past year? Do you obsessively and repeatedly wash your hands, every square inch of your home, wear a mask or face covering whenever you go out or are around other people? Do you social distance as though your very life depends upon it?

Yet, were we told to do any of these things during any previous flu season or previous pandemic like H1N1? Were we this concerned about catching tuberculosis in 2019 when 10 million people contracted it and 1.5 million died from it? Most weren’t even aware of it because the MSM didn’t tell us about it and wasn’t ginning up the fear of it 24/7/365.

Ungodly fear is prevalent today, even among Christians. This ungodly fear is a snare of death that keeps Christians from drawing close to God. The only good fear is the fear of offending God, yet we have spent most of late 2019 until the first part of 2021 fearing the unseen enemy of CV-19. Why is that? Because focus has been purposefully directed there.

I see constant comments on social media against “anti-maskers.” If only people would wear masks, others argue, the pandemic would be gone already. This is in spite of the fact that studies have shown that with or without masks, the incidence of CV-19 infections isn’t reduced. Moreover, a recent medical study has shown that forcing children to wear masks is more harmful than good. But, the paid “fact checkers” go after these articles to not only downplay them, but to negate and censor them.

Not only are anti-maskers allegedly the problem but now so are “anti-vaxxers.” We’re being told the increase in infections of the new so-called Delta variant is almost solely due to the fact that people are refusing the CV-19 vax. Yet, many who have allegedly contracted the Delta variant have had both shots. People will continue to blame those who have not and will not receive the CV-19 vax. How is this logical? It’s not.

In spite of the fact that we have thousands of Dr. Fauci’s emails (released via a FOIA), where he essentially downplays the use of masks, people have largely ignored those emails. Why? Because MSM has told us that only conspiracy theorists pay them any attention and see things in them that MSM says is not there. These are actual emails from and to Dr. Fauci where he speaks his mind privately.

Dr. Zev Zelenko has had great success treating people who contracted CV-19 and keeping them out of the hospital. He had hundreds of thousands of followers on Twitter until he was unceremoniously banned because of concerns regarding the CV-19 vax and the way CV-19 has been handled. Here’s a recent interview of Dr. Zelenko by Dr. Mercola. He not only condemns the lack of free flow of information, but he offers hope for people who have already taken the vax and additional information for those who have not taken it and won’t.

We need to ask ourselves why doctors like Zelenko and Dr. Malone, inventor of the mRNA, are being unceremoniously banned from social media and their videos removed? There is something evil happening in society that many refuse to notice. The tyranny is real.

According to at least one study, people who have received the CV-19 shot(s), have an 885% higher chance of contracting and dying of CV-19 than those who have not had the shot(s). Dr. Zelenko in the above video explains why this is the case.

In related news, a Lisbon court ruled that only 0.9% Of ‘Verified Cases’ Died Of COVID, Numbering 152, Not 17,000 As Claimed. Once again, “fact checkers” are doing their best to downplay and destroy this information. Wait until you hear what Dr. Zelenko believes is the true death number from CV-19 jab just in the USA.

The Biden administration has just announced a plan to send out people door-to-door to convince people that they need to put their vaccine hesitancy on the shelf and get the jab, for the “good” of society. Since when did we ever think like that? How will those door knockers know who has/has not already taken the vax? This is privileged information, but apparently not for this administration. By the way, if President Trump had not been so quick to partner with Bill Gates on Operation Warp Speed for a CV-19 vax, we would not be at this point.

I don’t recall any previous flu season (or pandemic), people being told to wear masks and get the flu shot to keep other people safe, do you? People had the choice to get the flu vax and if they chose it, they did it for purely themselves. They did not want to get sick, so they got the flu vax, thinking they’d be protected. That didn’t always work because many still got the flu. I don’t recall anyone wearing masks during any previous flu season either, do you? It was never mandated by mayors, city councils or governors nor were businesses shut down. If a person wanted to wear a mask, they were free to do so, but it was never a default mandatory practice in society.

Everything changed with CV-19. Why? There are demonically-inspired psychopaths who are exceedingly wealthy who believe they were put here to rule the earth. Believing themselves to be demi-gods, they believe it is fine for them to openly discuss culling a few billion people from this planet as numerous elites have done. World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab stated publicly on video, “You will own nothing and you’ll be happy.” Who says something like this unless they have a God complex and believe that they can do whatever they want and we peons are simply at their mercy?

Has fear of death by CV-19 overcome you? If so, then may I say that you are not trusting God. In fact, that fear of CV-19 has already caused broken fellowship with Him.

Snares of death are anything that will kill us spiritually. This spiritual death results in broken fellowship with God. If we do not take the time to fix that, Christians could easily end up like some of the Corinthian believers who were taken home early because of their particular sin (1 Corinthians 5:1-13). It is absurd when I see Christians who are so fearful of dying all they can think about is their own safety. So hamstrung by fear they toss common sense and logic out the window.

Yes, CV-19 can be deadly. I am merely advocating using common sense to protect from contracting it as with any airborne illness. Common sense appears to be null and void for most people.

Yet, the same people deathly afraid of dying from CV-19 eat junk, don’t exercise and often carry too much weight. How does that help? It doesn’t. Good health begins by what we put into our bodies and is the first barrier to keeping illnesses out of our bodies. If we are not willing to take a good hard look at our lifestyle, eliminating things that are harmful, we’ve already set ourselves up for failure by weakening our immune systems, allowing numerous illnesses to gain entry, with little ability to fight them off.

The snares of death are all around us constantly vying for our attention and embrace. These appeal to our natural fallen tendency to embrace ungodly fear (Genesis 3:10; Adam feared God). The only solution for that is to live in the fear of (offending) the Lord. We need to replace ungodly fear with godly fear. It is one or the other. It cannot be both.

We must make the decision to fear offending the Lord not once, not twice, but daily and often throughout the day.

    Truth!

    “It is absurd when I see Christians who are so fearful of dying all they can think about is their own safety. So hamstrung by fear they toss common sense and logic out the window.”

    More truth!

    “The only solution for that is to live in the fear of (offending) the Lord. We need to replace ungodly fear with godly fear. It is one or the other. It cannot be both.”

    Even more…

    “We must make the decision to fear offending the Lord not once, not twice, but daily and often throughout the day.”

    This is the only way…Bless you for another encouraging article.
