Anthony Smith is the Author of the Article - Snake Charmer (Part 1&2) He will be explaining below the deception of these kind of people - The Charmers - Part 2! Getting straight into the Holy Scriptures: Key Verse - Deuteronomy 18:10-18:12 (Hold on to that verses)

The question today is, Does God acknowledge the existence of such people in the Bible? The answer is yes, over and over again. Exodus 22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Deuteronomy 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

Deuteronomy 18:12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Psychics and Mediums, are some of the most notable liars in this society today. we see them on television, in the news papers, Internet and on radio. Deceivers all, some are even lieing to themselves thinking that they really are Psychics. Most of these people are just phone's, looking for easy money. These are easy to spot.

The ones we must be wary of are the real demon filled people with the power to actually predict and contact the dead, as was the case in scripture. This is called "Divination" which means; Used in Scripture of false systems of ascertaining the divine will, such as are allied to idolatry: as necromancy, which evoked the dead (1Samuel 28:8); prognostication by arrows. Act 16:16-18 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.

And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved,{Why was Paul grieved? Because the woman was a witch. Possessed by a demon.} turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. Ezekiel 13:6-8 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The Lord saith: and the Lord hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. 

Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken?

Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God. How many today can see these people, working, lieing wonders and deception, calling out a person from the audience, telling them that one leg is shorter than another, speaking different types of illness on, healthy people and then miraculously healing them from something they didn't have.

Saying they are sent by God and not even knowing the truth in scripture? Calling on those who are desperately seeking a cure from cancer, aids, heart problems, speaking lieing words, that their healing has just been approved by God, months later they are dead. "and the LORD hath not sent them:" The snake charmers, taking up offerings before the service and again at the end of the service, running it as thou it were a circus.

God has not sent these people, to heal you or to take your money. Where are they? Are they at the Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Insain Asylums, healing all manner of sickness and illness? No. There no where to be found. The reason many are not healed today, is because we as Christians have lost bits and pieces of our faith in God.

Ministers wont teach the Gifts of the Spirit because they themselves, either don't understand or don't believe in miraculous healings from the word of God. They say, well it was for the Disciples time, its not for us. We cant do those things the Bible states, its just not for our time. How many here today even know what the gifts of the Spirit are? How many here today really know how to pray? How many here today know how to pray for a healing? If you don't know, let me in-lighten you into the word of God.

As far as the Spiritual gifts not being for us; Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. Romans 12:6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 1Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 1Corinthians 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

What are the Gifts? 1Corinthians 12:8-10. Word of wisdom; Word of knowledge; Faith {This is a special type of Faith} Gifts of healing; Working of miracles; Prophecy; Discerning of spirits; Divers kinds of tongues; Interpretation of tongues. 9 Gifts from the Spirit of God and these snake Charmers have none. We, as believers, cannot be denied these Gifts today because of this next verse 1Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

Now what about praying for a healing, or just praying? James 5:13-15, Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: Many state that this next verse is for the lost,sins"And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him."  but this cannot be, because of the last part of the verse, "and if he have committed sins" Their interpretation is wrong. This commandment is for the saved and not the lost. Lets go back and look at James again and what is said, 1."Is any among you afflicted? let him pray." You must pray for yourself first to be delivered from the illness. If your healing doesn't come, go to step 2. "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church" 3."let them pray over him" steps. 3, 4,& 5. Are Commandments to the Elders of the Church. 4."anointing him with oil" 5."in the name of the Lord" In steps 3 to 5, there must be Faith among all the Elders praying or there will be no healing. 

Next we see another commandment in the healing process, lets read: Act 3:16 And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. What is the key here? "And his name through faith in his name" Matthew 6:9-13 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Luke 11:4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. This is how to pray. 

Now what about the snake charmers, have they known the way of healing, have they known the way of God, Have they know the way of Deliverance? Have they read, 1st. Corinthians, James, Luke, Matthew? Or are some of these Television Evangelist, only looking to build themselves a kingdom on this earth with other peoples suffering? With witchcraft comes a warning from God. 

1Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king. 

So be careful about, what you watch, hear, see or even donate to, it may not be of God.
