The Bible appears to be associating snare(s) with the trap of false prophets in tribulation. It’s the Day of the Lord that began with the tribulation and transitioned into God’s judgment on the whole body. It’s said to be a trap because it came like a thief in the night. The believers escape the snare as God brings them out of Babylon.
