This is how we deal with snakes here in Colorado! We strap our boots on and crush those suckers! I have killed at least 7 or 8 snakes in the 12 years we have lived in this neighborhood. We back up to an open space. We have bull snakes mostly, which look and act just like rattlers. It is hard to tell the difference. They even shake their tales like rattlers. Bull snakes are not poisonous or venomous, but they have a nasty bite! They get into our backyard and even our garage sometimes in the summer and fall! Do you know what God is going to do to that ancient serpent the devil? He is going to crush him, that’s what!
“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.”
You see, you never know which kind of snake it is, so my advice is to always assume it is a rattle snake! Getting bit by a rattler is a whole different day than getting bit by a bull! They are both so fast, you usually don’t have time to check for the rattle on the end of their tale! I chop their heads off with a shovel or I crush their heads first, then chop it off! Then I bury the head and the rest of the body.
That is what God is going to do to satan! He is going to crush him and he will be no more! No more lies, no more hurt, no more pain–no more!
“And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
The fate of the evil one is already sealed. Don’t ever forget that! Jesus Christ defeated Him when He died on that cross and it is most definitely finished just like He said! And guess what? He is coming soon to crush that evil serpent!
Grace and peace to you all in the Powerful and Mighty Name of Jesus!
