The Snare of the Fowler Worship Flag

Gail Patterson

The Lord uses animals to portray spiritual messages. In the days of the Bible Fowlers were bird catchers.  Fowlers set traps with spring loaded nets. As the birds were lured  to the net and began to eat the bait, the trap would spring closed entrapping the bird. A cruel method of sewing the bird’s eyes closed, would cause it to cry out which would draw even more birds in curiosity. Satan plots and plans our demise with sin every day; one of his tactics is to lure us with offense. Daily we face injustices, some are out right attacks others are come from loved ones and friends. If we chose to be offended and walk in unforgiveness, Satan has succeeded and we are ensnared; if not dealt with, sin can even bring sickness or disease or some form of destruction. He is a master of deception, luring people with drugs, sex, gambling, fame, pride, other gods,  even food, ect. He puts the bait out, and waits for us to take it. Because people can’t see him they tend to forget he exists. Our only protection is to abide in the Word of God, living a life set apart to the Lord. When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, it was the word of God that Jesus spoke that caused Satan to flee. The Bible tells us that Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy, but God comes to give us life and life more abundantly. The good news is if we forgive others, we will be forgiven. Also if we repent from our sin, and go the other way we are forgiven and cleansed with his blood. The Word of God is our guiding light, and a weapon to be used against Satan and negative influences that come our way. When we use our faith and decree God’s Word to overcome all the works of darkness, it becomes a lethal weapon against our enemy. God’s Word is also creative; “Decree a thing and it shall be established.”Job 22:28  When we cry out to the Lord he hears our cry  and answers from his Holy Hill. The snare is broken and we are escaped out of the snare of the Fowler. Ps. 91:3 This Worship  Flag was created to honor the Lord Jesus for delivering his saints from the Snare of the Fowler!
