The Moses Code Deception

On the weekend of April 5-6, 2008, there will be a new movie released called The Moses Code. Musician, author and speaker James Twyman, who is the creator and purportedly the gifted "receiver" of The Moses Code, claims that he has been given "the key" to unlock "The Moses Code". He claims that The Moses Code is "...the most powerful manifestation tool in the history of the world." (Source: www.themosescode.com; Interview transcript from Leading Edge, Unity Radio, Feb 11, 2008.)
The Moses Code movie is presented this way:
The film focuses on the power of "Soul Manifestation," drawing upon your own innate spiritual connection to produce miracles everywhere you go. Many other films and books have focused on using the Law of Attraction to "get" the things we believe we need, eg. houses, cars or other goods. The Moses Code takes the next much more important step-how do we use this law to "give" from our soul, automatically attracting spiritual blessings into our lives.
UNLOCKING 'THE MOSES CODE'
Along with a number of other incredible claims made on The Moses Code website, the basic idea behind The Moses Code is that humans can now, "for the first time in 3,500 years" - "insert a comma" into the divine Name of God [I AM THAT I AM (Exodus 3:14)] and see "miracles manifest". Now, in the 21st century, WE can begin to say an unbiblical version of God's Name - " I AM THAT , I AM ", and get what we want - so the story goes.
The claim is being made by James Twyman that this is "the key" to "unlocking" the long lost "Moses "Code". Twyman also claims that by utilizing this "technique" one can "manifest divine miracles" - and that humans can have whatever they desire.
The Moses Code appears to be based on a perversion of the biblical Name that God ascribed to Himself; some could easily argue this is blatantly occult in nature!
A basic straightforward reading of the biblical text will reveal what God's intention was when He revealed His Name to Moses. Exodus 3:13-15 clearly states:
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.
[Note: The above self-designation of God is also rendered as I AM WHO I AM. Emphasis and underlining added for emphasis]
James Twyman and The Moses Code movie and book actually change 'The Name' of God to "I AM THAT , I AM" and then utilize it in a process htat is believed to "manifest miracles". They say that the insertion of a comma is "the key" to unlock the "Code" and then God can "manifest power" through humans. Very similar examples of this type of "occult" teaching and "affirmation" can be found in literature that has been "channeled" by mediums and published. We note the following in order to show that these sort of "techniques" for "manifesting power" are occult in nature, and, that they are nothing new.
SIMILARITIES TO CHANNELED OCCULT TEACHINGS
Many years ago, a whole series of "instructions" were "channeled" (via occult spirit mediumship), published and widely distributed. These "instructions" were originally published in 1937 by Saint Germain Press. Inc. The lengthy series was more recently published in 1993. From the Table of Contents in "I AM" ADORATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS, (by CHANERA, Saint Germain Series Volume V, Part I, Schaumburg, Illinois, 1993), we read:
The "I AM" Religious Activity presents the Original Ascended Master Instruction from the Teachings given in the Books of the Saint Germain Series...The "I AM" Activity is offered through "I AM" Sanctuaries, "I AM" Temples and "I AM" Reading Rooms throughout the world. [Italics in original]
We note also that the DEDICATION in this small booklet is to:
...our Beloved Ascended Masters, Saint Germain, Jesus, Nada, The Great Divine Director, and also tom the Great White Brotherhood...and those other Ascended masters Whose loving help has been direct and without limit. [Italics in original]
It is crucial to note at this point that these entities that are mentioned, are internationally recognized as being channeled from the spirit realm. These "entities" are actually spirit beings that "teach" and deceive humans. The Bible makes reference to those who in latter times will depart from the [Christian] faith and "give heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons " (1 Timothy 4:1-2). These teachings from spirit beings are also canvassed throughout world of occultism, psychics, Ouija Boards, etc. This Bible verse is in clear reference to people who give attention to "seducing" spirit beings and the "teachings" [doctrines] that these beings bring forth.
We note that the teachings that these entities "channel" to mankind are very similar to the ideas put forth in The Moses Code. The self-affirmations of "I AM", the strange and unbiblical perversions of God's Name (I AM WHO I AM), and the teaching that instantaneous manifestations that are supposed to occur, have no doubt been given before to others - via channeling (divination, spiritism, etc.).
In order to better show the similarity of other occult teachings with The Moses Code technique, we quote one more time at length from the booklet Foreward found in "I AM" ADORATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS" :
All who read or use these commands shall be held, by the Love of the 'Mighty I AM Presence,', in constant conscious communion with that 'Master Presence of Light' within themselves.
Every time the Great Creative Word, "I AM"! is read, thought, or spoken, the feeling released should be that of exclamation; because "I AM"! is the Life from the Great Central Sun announcing Its Presence through the individual who thinks, speaks, or feels the Great Eternal Fiat of Life's existence. Therefore, always release that strong powerful feeling whenever you use the Great Creaive Word -"I AM."
In this way, the limitless Energy of Life releases through you to fulfill your call for assistance and Perfection.
If the student will read these decrees slowly and with deep, deep feeling in each word, as he comes to it, he will feel instantaneous manifestations, when he can feel meaning in each word deeply enough.
From a Biblical perspective, the teachings of The Ascended Masters, The Great White Brotherhood, and many more of these co-called "beings of light" are demonic in nature. These fallen spirits masquerade as "angels of light". Some refer to them as "teachers" and as "masters". In many cases these purely evil beings counterfeit Biblical characters . Their goal is deception, and the destruction of the humanity. No doubt these are the wiles, the schemings, the crafty intentions of the devil (Ephesians 6:10-18).
Another occult technique is known as "The Law of Attraction". Much like the book and movie The Secret, this new "Code" purportedly brings about 'The Law of Attraction'. The idea of the 'Law of Attraction' comes from many sources that are indeed occult in nature. It too shows its true colors in the occult literature that has been channeled. The idea behind the world of occult experience is to tap into so-called "unseen universal energies". How do we know? Multitudinous volumes of occult literature is jam packed with the "Law of Attraction' principles. (See also Word Faith, Positive Confession, Witchcraft, Prosperity Gospel, etc.)
Just for the record, The Moses Code movie Featured Speakers list is comprised of a number of extremely well known and powerful psychic mediums, channelers, New Age Intuitives, etc. We issue a strong warning here against all forms of occultism as the God of the Bible Himself thoroughly condemns it in every form. (For a vast listing of Scriptural warnings and condemnations of occultism see the following links: Sorcery, Necromancy, Spiritism (necromancy and sorcery), Astrology, Familiar Spirits, Witchcraft, Divination, etc.
SELF-AFFIRMATIONS, DIVINE-NESS, AND ANTICHRIST
Through the use of modern technology, people around the world are being trained through movies, books, audio messages, study centers, websites, etc. to claim "I AM - ness" [self-divinity], to claim to be God, or gods, or part of God, etc. (See pantheism, pan-en-theism, polytheism, occultism, New Age-ism, etc.)
These so-called "methods" and "self-affirmations" of "divine-ness" and "I AM THAT, I AM" - ness are simply small prototypes of what will one day happen when The Coming World Leader, 'the Man of Sin' whom the bible calls Antichrist, sits "in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God". When Antichrist does that people will hail him as a god. This is the genius of Satan.
Remember the sober warning of Paul the Apostle"
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)
THE MOSES CODE'S GLOBAL NEW AGE PEACE VIGIL
Lastly, The Moses Code video and movie are being used as teaching tools in conjunction with a worldwide New Age peace vigil. At over 1000 locations around the globe, "Moses Code" groupies will be attempting to "shift planetary consciousness".
So that our readers can see clearly that we are not misrepresenting the announcement and claim of The Moses Code, the following statement can be found on the The Moses Code homepage (bold emphasis in original; italics and underlining added for our emphasis here.) :
It's time for the next stage!

A WARNING FROM GOD HIMSELF AGAINST OCCULT PRACTICES
Well what happens if I do "The Moses Code" and something r e a l l y d o e s h a p p e n ? Would God really mind?"
The answer to that can be found a bit further on in the book of Exodus (chapter thirteen) when God gives clear instructions to the Israelites who left Egypt many years ago. We quote the following verses below, at length, in order to clearly show the context in which God's warning was. We are also making mention of this verse in order to show that demonic "miracles" can and do happen when false prophets deceive people 'under the guise' of the true 'Name' of God.
Please note as well that the author of this article is by no means giving the endorsement that we are to go out and stone people today. Or, that we are on a rampage against the individuals who created The Moses Code, The Secret, etc. We are not! We are simply trying to show that the God of the Bible gave very clear instructions not to partake in occultism, and that those that do fall under the judgment of God Himself, who is HOLY.
In the words of Yahweh Himself, the One Who claimed to be "I AM THAT I AM" (more correctly rendered "I AM WHO I AM"):
If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee. If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you. (Deuteronomy 13:1-11)
We don't stone false teachers and false prophets today, but we are commanded in Scripture to warn people about their deceptions!
On a different and certainly much more positive note, we are commended in Scripture to keep our focus on Jesus Christ and to grow in grace and the knowledge of Him. In closing, we remember the Apostle Peter's words and his exhortation to be "be found of him [Christ] in peace, without spot, and blameless":
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen (2 Peter 3:13-18)
