    This Topic is for discussion of the
    specifics of:

    Gail Riplinger's 2003 Book:

    title: In AWE of Thy Word

    Subtitle: Understanding the King James Bible:
    It's Mystery & History Letter by letter.

    click here --&gt; In AWE of Thy Word &lt;-- click here

    "This book shows how the words of the
    King James Bible are the same word
    meanings and sounds
    across languages,
    across cultures and across time.
    No other Bible is like it!"

    I think i know where this is going:
    the letter placement is divine and inerrant.
    So now you can feel free* to use your equidistant
    spacing Bible code program(s) on the English Version.
    The Bible becomes trivialized as a divining mechanism [​IMG]

    *or, you can use mine for $100 :D

    Try reading the 1200 page book prayerfully Ed. You might learn something. Gail has done a lot of work. Some of it original and unique. You couldn't shine her shoes.

    From the comic book doctrine source
    with regards to IN AWE:
    "This book shows how the words of the King James Bible
    are the same word meanings and sounds across languages,
    across cultures and across time.
    No other Bible is like it! The King James Bible is
    made up of words and sounds
    that make you understand the feeling behind the words.
    And King James words are very similar to words
    used in other language Bibles."

    One thing i've got for the comic book doctrine,
    they are so far away from any meaningful concepts
    that one can barely argue with it.
    IF that statement has any meaning, it is that words
    are used to convey ideas. But if that was it's true
    meaning, then the KJVO concepts would all fall to the
    side. Otherwise, the statement is illiterate
    biblobabble.

    Ed;
    Perhaps you should do a bit more research before heaping disparity on someone else's hard work.
    Also taken from the same website;

    "Erasmus stands in sharp contrast to his contemporary Greek text editors who promote the false notion that "Scripture remains full of meanings "which are not able to be understood in any way other than from the very fount of the original languages" [quae nequeant aliunde quam ex ipso archetypae linguae fonte cognosci]. This quote is taken from the preface of the Catholic Complutensian Polyglot produced by Cardinal Ximenez in 1517; this Catholic 'father' spawned "the first" Greek New Testament lexicon, which bred today's mongrels (Pelikan, p. 110; The Cambridge History of the Bible, vol 3, p. 525).

    Our generation has worn out so many eyes spying what man says about the scriptures, that we are blind to how popish we have become. The homage which was once lavished on Catholic 'saints' has in our generation been redirected to the ancients and others whose quotes become the revered relics of our religion. According to St. Strong, 'the Bible is wrong'; according to St. Vine, 'correct that line.' What happened to "...according to thy word"? (Psa. 119:41) "

    So, we can see that whatever it is that you are attempting to do here in this post of yours Ed, it is not entirely honest. Though I do believe that you "honestly" think it is. Anybody can take any book and make it say what the author did not intend. We see this principle all the time in American politics. That principle is "contempt prior to investigation" and it cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance.


    :D

    In HIS service;
    Jim

    In Awe of Thy Word (AVPublications,2003) page 1126-1128
    Gail Riplinger spends 2½-pages talking about "E".
    Well, you gotta know that Ed Edwards really grooves out
    about the Letter "e".

    "Ee The lettter 'e' has three visual aspects which
    depict its meaning as expressed in Genesis 1.
    These three include:

    1.) the circular nature of 'e.'
    2.) the horizontal even mid-bar of 'e.'
    3.) the open east side of 'e.'

    ...

    The even horizontal mid-bar continues depicting
    the unbroken nature of "ever," the root
    of "every" (Genesis 1) and "everlating".


    dictionary.com says:

    psy·cho·bab·ble n.
    Language characterized by the often inaccurate
    use of jargon from psychiatry and psychotherapy

    I'm going to start a new term:

    biblobabble n.
    Language characterized by the often inaccurate
    use of jargon from the Bibles and translations

    I'm really surprised that she doesn't raise the
    REAL KJV1611 edition more, there were lots more
    silent 'e's off in the KJV1611 than in the KJV1769.
    She missed a good thing there [​IMG] I especially
    like "Iesus the sonne of God".

    2Co 1:19 (KJV1611):
    For the Sonne of God Iesus Christ,
    who was preached among you by vs, euen by me,
    and Syluanus and Timotheus,
    was not Yea, and Nay, but in him, was yea.

    Remember 'Iesus'.

    AWE, page 1136:

    Many 'j' words call to mind Jesus Christ.
    These include
    JEHOVAH
    jealous
    jewel
    Jew
    join
    joint
    joy ...


    I think i'll skip comment on 'jealous' reminding
    us of Jesus Christ ???

    AWE, page 1135:

    'I' is used to begin Bible words which reveal
    what man's 'self' is like, what he thinks
    within himself, and what he needs.

    These Bible 'i' words include:
    I
    idol
    idolater
    if
    ignorance
    image
    ill
    ...
    lots of im- and in- words listed ... .

    The hardness of "ice," "iron," and "ivory,"
    often depicts man's inner heart.


    Must be talking of the KJV1769 cause the
    KJV1611 didn't have any 'j' but used 'i'.
    I note in American Sign Language that the
    'j' symbol is a moving 'i' symbol.

    I appologize for repeating the biblobabble,
    but somebody needs to "do a bit more research" ;)

    AWE page 263:
    "Recent bible translations have sadly substituted
    the word 'slave' or 'bond slave' for the word 'servant.'
    The word 'slave' does not communicate the fact that we come
    to Christ and we serve him by our own choice."

    'Slave' is a good word used to show that we are
    a slave to something: either good or bad. It is
    human nature to be slavish.

    I searched for 'slave' in the KJV1769 and found it zero times.
    'Slave" is in the KJV1611 zero times.
    'Servant' is in the KJV1769 79 times.
    'Seruant' is in the KJV1611 89 times.

    Why has 'servant' been dropped from THE HOLY BIBLE
    ten times? Things that are different
    are not the same.
