A valiant 17 month old little toddler in Brazil recently grabbed a snake and bit off its neck perhaps thinking it was fish. Mother Jaine Ferreira Figueira, 19, told G1 News that she realised her son, Lorenzo, was very quiet playing in the garden with their dog, so she went to investigate. When she discovered Lorenzo with the snake in his mouth and blood all over her boy, she shouted for her husband Lucier de Souza, 22, and both immediately took their son to the Sao Luiz hospital, over 100 miles away from Porto Alegre the capital of Rio Grande do Sul state. Animals pick up fear hormones so attack those panicking or screaming to upset them. He was playing in his garden with his dog when this incident happened. He returned to the house dragging along the snake with blood on his mouth and hands. The parents managed to take dead snake off him and took him to the doctor with the snake in a jar and checked up. Animals pick up fear hormones so attack those panicking or screaming to upset them. The child without conditioned fear stayed calm, so was able to conquer such a deadly venomous snake. This is truly an amazing miracle the child’s life was saved by God.
In Luke 10:19 Jesus said, behold, I give you power and authority to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. In 2 Timothy 1:7 in the Bible God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind. Also, again in 1 John 4:18, the Bible says that perfect love casts out fear, because fear is false evidence appearing real. In Matthew 10:16, Jesus said believers be wise like snakes. Jesus means to learn to think like a snake and be harmless like doves. In spiritual warfare believers must know where to tread in life wisely. God in His Word clearly sets out boundary of where to go in life. It is important to have knowledge and the understanding of dangerous areas to avoid. To take appropriate precautions to protect oneself and those around safely.
The Bible says God’s people perish for lack of knowledge. Yet said to be wise as a serpent means to have a good, basic, fundamental knowledge of God’s word. To become fully equipped with God’s armour to go into suitable areas.Others are so bold they kill and eat them to the horror of those who treat them as pets. In Bible in Numbers 21:4-9, God told Moses to erect a pole used to stick up a bronze snake set standard on the cross to heal the Hebrews bitten by snakes. Moses made a serpent of brass because the old serpent was the cause of physical and spiritual death. They did not worship the bronze snake but it provided they followed instructions to look up on the pole those bitten by serpents were healed. After God sent poisonous serpents as punishment to kill them for disobedience when they became impatient on the way to Canaan.
To wear the full armour of God’s Protection to be on guard against the snares, traps and deceptions of the devil. In Matthew 24:24 signs and wonders from false prophets and false leaders seem good the elect can be deceived. Jesus warns to remain alert doing the work of God. In enemy territory believers encounter false doctrines or belief systems of demonic activity incur wrath of God Almighty. Jesus warns to be careful not to partake in evil activities. In Numbers 21:4 From Mount Hor they set out by the way to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom. And the people became impatient on the way. 5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and we loathe this worthless food.” Previously Moses used his staff to unleash God’s Power of God’s Snake to overpower Egyptian snakes. Which tried to throw off course to enslave believers. In Exodus 6:28—7:13 to 7:5-12 “The Egyptians shall know I am the LORD, when I stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the sons of Israel from their midst.” 6 Then the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. 7 And the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. 8 And the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole, and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live.” 9 So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live. 6 So Moses and Aaron turned the staff into serpent. In Genesis, chapter 3, God tells Moses in the desert to throw down his rod, and it becomes a snake to impact Egyptian magic and beliefs since Aaron’s serpent swallowed theirs. In Genesis God commands the serpent’s head to be crushed by seed of the woman as punishment of deceiving Adam and Eve into submission of sin. God’s bronze snake saved the Jews in the wilderness from death or into a dark side group of people.
A true python rarely attack humans unless disturbed or provoked. In Daniel 6 the king ordered Daniel thrown into lion’s den. Later the king told Daniel, your God whom you serve continually reigns forever. In Psalm 91:13 believers are to thread on the adder, serpents; to trample on lions, cobras, to crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet in Jesus Name. This command includes defeating dark spiritual forces and evil kingdoms serpents represent. The lion of Judah empowers Christians to be victorious. God made Christian believers always to emerge as winners to change the world. The Lord Jesus declares the conquering Spirit of God Jehovah Nissi is within Christian believer so enables to overcome fear. Fear is a spirit which God commands believers to cast out. This is because fear is a powerful emotion that dictates behaviour. So fear demobilized and debilitated from accomplishing what God asked believers to do. The love of God gives confidence and reassurance to hold onto God with trust and confidence. A sound mind has the mind of Christ Jesus knowing God is totally depended upon. For 1000 shall fall at one side and 10,000 on the right hand but shall not come near in Jesus Name.
God the life-giving source closely beside protects and delivers to overcome fear in Jesus Name. Success in life involves fear or risk so God imprints his DNA of boldness to have certainty in Christ. Confidence means friendship with God to help us be all that God designed believers to be to achieve Godly progress in life. You do not have to go out of your way to find snakes to thread on them as some churches do to prove you are more than a conqueror. It is not necessary to go to such extremes because the church is to focus on God’s Sovereignty not to abuse God’s given spiritual power to defeat the devil serpent satan through the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus has put His Feet on the head of serpents conquered adversary forevermore in Jesus name. Believer’s are given all power and authority to thread on serpents and scorpions. God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind in Jesus Name. Be wise and wear appropriate protective gear if one has to come into contact. Each animal has a temperament so it is essential to seek advise from experts before one attempts to handle them supervised.
