How Gail Riplinger is Stealthily Introducing Jewish Kabbalism (Witchcraft) to Christians Under the Guise of King James Onlyism

Let's now look into the diabolical designs of KJV Onlyism and to Gail Riplinger, who is at the forefront of this Satanic deception. 

Who is Gail Riplinger?

Gail Riplinger is a Jew.

Gail Riplinger is Jewish. Her maiden name was Gail Anne Ludwig. Her parents were Wilson Ludwig and Helen Frech. This is found in her application for a Marriage License in 1984. Note, as well, that this application indicates this was Riplinger's third marriage.

Of interest, Ludwig (Latinized: Clovis) is a Merovingian Jewish name.  Clovis was the first Merovingian king of the Holy Roman Empire. The Merovingian race is of demonic origin and the Nephilim were their fathers (Gen 6:2). The Merovingian race is also a demonic bloodline from which the Antichrist and False Prophet will come. (L)

Gail Riplinger received her honorary doctorate from the late Pastor Jack Hyles who laid the foundation of the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist network on the sinking sand of sex scandals and cover ups that infected nearly every church in the IFB movement, and continues to this day.  

Gail Riplinger is a liar and deceiver.

In 2010, Aletheia O'Brien published "Who is Gail Riplinger: A Warning to God's Sheep." This well documented 147 page expose reveals that Riplinger "is a deceiver and a pathological liar in the extreme." This book is worth reading for those who believe James Knox, who teaches that Riplinger is a Christian.

Gail Riplinger is a Kabbalist.

In 2011, Dr. Phil Stringer published "Gail A. Riplinger's Occult Connections." This 126 page book exposes Riplinger as being especially dangerous. In this expose, a few chapters are appropriately titled: "Occult Connections, "Bewitched Believers," "What is the Kabbalah?" and "Spirits Hiding Behind Words." Dr. Stringer exposed Riplinger's true intention, which is to get Christians away from reading and understanding the plain sense of Scripture to employ witchcraft to gain understanding God's "occult and hidden" messages that lie within the words and letters of Scripture. According to Dr. Phil Stringer, "I strongly suspect that Gail Riplinger is a practitioner of the occult who has infiltrated independent Baptist circles." (p.22)   This occult practice that crypto-Jews Gail Riplinger and James Knox promote is Jewish Kabbalism. 

The following section provides evidence that Gail Riplinger teaches Kabbalism in her book, "In Awe of Thy Word." For a thorough treatment of this Satanic book, in which Riplinger teaches readers how to practice divination and witchcraft to "understand" the KJV, read "Shock and Awe in the King James Only Camp."

Gail Riplinger's Satanic Hand Signs

"KJV Only" means "No Greek & No Hebrew"

A brief timeline may be helpful here for the reader to understand Riplinger's methodology and how the King James-Only movement is being used as a vehicle and a front for Riplinger's end game which is to infiltrate churches with Jewish Kabbalism.

In 1993, Gail Riplinger published New Age Bible Versions in which she advocated the following:

  1. All modern versions including the New King James version are corrupt translations written by occultists.

  2. The King James Bible is based on the Textus Receptus which is inerrant.

In 2004, Riplinger published In Awe of Thy Word: Understanding the King James Bible Its Mystery and History Letter by Letter. This book radically altered the premise and thesis of New Age Bible Versions:

1. Instead of the Greek Textus Receptus being inerrant, the King James Bible is inerrant and the Textus Receptus is obsolete and irrelevant. Excerpts from In Awe of Thy Word reveal her contempt for the Received Greek text.

"There existed a true original Greek (i.e. Majority Text, Textus Receptus). It is not in print and never will be because it is unnecessary. No one on the planet speaks first century Koine Greek, so God is finished with it. He needs no 'Dead Bible Society' to translate it into 'everyday English'..." (In Awe of Thy Word, p. 956)

"Unlike today's editors, the KJV translators' final authorities were Bibles, not lexicons. They saw the KJV as the final 'perfected' and 'finished' English Bible... " (Riplinger, In Awe of Thy Word, p. 31)

"God has not called readers to check His Holy Bible for errors." (In Awe of Thy Word, p. 956)

"Only forbidden 'private interpretation' can be drawn from dipping one's nose deeply into corrupt lexicons, dictionaries, and commentaries by worldly wise men, like Strong, Vine, and Zodhiates (2 Peter 1:19, 20)." (In Awe of Thy Word , p. 141)

"Christians would 'call those who study Greek heretics. The teachers of Greek...are full-grown devils, and the learners of Greek are little devils...'" (Hidden History of the English Scriptures by Riplinger, misquoting Thomas More in J.A. Froude's, The Life and Letters of Erasmus)

2. Based on her false premise that the KJV is inerrant, Riplinger promotes the Kabbalist mystical belief that its words and letters are therefore divine.

"'God is in every syllable'" (In Awe of Thy Word, pp. 16, 109, et al)

3. Rather than consulting Greek and Hebrew resources to understand the meanings of God's words in the Bible, Christian readers are told they can decipher the secret meanings of the KJV's divine letters by analyzing their sounds and shapes. 

"God built the Bible, letter by letter. He gave each sound a sense. The meanings of each letter can be found in the Bible, in the book of Genesis... Just as God created the basic chemical elements to use as building blocks to create different things, he also created letters, with significations that they carry to create word meanings. An appendix at the end of this book details some of the central meanings of each letter." (In Awe of Thy Word, p. 16)

To learn how to decipher these divine letters, Riplinger refers her readers to the works of Jewish rabbis and other Kabbalists.  One book "recommended for further study on this subject" of letter meanings is Mysteries of the Alphabet by Rabbi Marc-Alain Ouaknin, a Kabbalist. Rabbi Ouaknin teaches that the letters of the Bible are "Text Gods" which are actually God incarnate.

"For kabbalists, the incarnation is produced in the body of the Text. This statement indicates the importance of reading and study in Judaism. It has been said, 'God is the text.' This means that the most radical manifestation of divinity is through the text, the Book, and the letters of the alphabet." (Ouaknin, Mysteries of the Kabbalah, pp. 381-2)

"The 'Text-God' must be accorded its status of infinity; in other words, every means must be used to give it an infinite meaning. These means consist of all the rules of interpretation...especially gematria, tseruf [combining letters], and so on. The need to interpret the text as the liberation of the divine is one of the fundamental meanings of all the work of kabbalists and Talmudists... The a means of interpreting the text in such a way that the words it contains...can be interpreted in a plurality of ways. "And it is this plurality which becomes freedom-of God and men!" (Ouaknin, Mysteries of the Kabbalah, pp. 381-2)

Another Kabbalist cited by Riplinger is Margaret Magnus whose book, Gods of the Word: Archetypes in the Consonants, is recommended for further study of letter meanings in the KJV.

"LITERATURE CITED. The books cited here are those from which direct quotations have been noted. They represent only a tiny portion of those used in researching this book. Only books having an asterisk (*) are recommended for further study on this subject...

"Magnus, M. Gods of the Word: Archetypes in the Consonants, Kirksville, Missouri: Thomas Jefferson University Press, 1999. (*great linguistics; non-Christian world view)." (Awe, pp. 1179, 1181)

Magnus' Kabbalistic thesis is that: (1) letters and their sounds in combination are subterranean "Gods of the Word," (2) the "Archetypes in the Consonants" are "sound gods" or "living spirits which actually reside in the consonants" of the English alphabet, and (3) the English language is the playground of this collection of "sound gods" who interact with each other and influence human affairs:

"These sounds do have the look and feel of a pack of Tarot cards. They are large and archetypal in nature. As you spend time with a sound, you see it rise from the dust and live, no less than you or I. It takes on the proportions of a god and moves with a will and destiny of its own. Yet it remains always rooted in its essence, guided by a coherency and logic wider than itself. It lives together in discord or in peace with its neighbors and they fight out their battles and engage in their love affairs within our English words. One suddenly envisions language as the playground of the sound gods... [quotes Carl Jung]... I, too, am a true believer in the autonomy of the archetype. A /t/ or an /h/ is no less than a Zeus. The consonants are not essentially physical, but they live, evolve, and influence human affairs. We overlook something if we deny that they can get up and walk around." (Gods of the Word: Archetypes in the Consonants, pp. 65-6)

Riplinger admonishes Christian readers to never, ever consult Greek and Hebrew lexicons to determine the meaning of God's Word, but to study the shapes and sounds of the letters which are divine. (L)

4. Also forbidden is any and all revision of the KJV; it is heresy to change even a word or letter in the KJV. Riplinger's obsession with letters has nothing to do with the accurate translation of God's words, but rather a demonic scheme is covertly in play. Riplinger is stealthily introducing Christians to Jewish witchcraft, or Kabbalah.

"KJV Only" means "Talmud & Kabbalah Only"

Since the KJV letters are "literal gods" and divine, they contain hidden messages that can be decoded through divination. This forbidden practice involves consulting familiar spirits who reveal secret knowledge (gnosis) of the hidden meaning of Scripture.  

Kabbalistic interpretation of the Torah is practiced by Jewish rabbis who reject what God actually said in His Word and substitute their private interpretations of Scripture. Rabbinic interpretations, which were published in the Babylonian Talmud, were the "oral traditions" which Jesus condemned as "the traditions of men." The Kabbalah is the mystical tradition - the "hidden light" or "secret doctrine" of Jewish mysticism (which God condemned as witchcraft):

"The teachings of Judaism come from the written tradition and the oral tradition, both of which were given by the Holy One, blessed be He, on Mount Sinai over 3300 years ago. The written tradition is the Torah consisting of the five books of Moses: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, all written in the language of biblical Hebrew. The open part of the oral tradition was written down not quite 1500 years ago and is found in the Talmud, written in the language of Aramaic. The less open part, the hidden light, is carried an oral tradition called the Kabbalah. Kabbalah comes from the Hebrew root meaning to receive. Kabbalah teaches how we can open ourselves to receive from God and how when we do this completely we become givers to God." (

As stated, an important method of divining the "hidden meaning" of the Hebrew text is viewing each letter of the Hebrew alphabet as a living divinity, a "letter god."  By means of such divination, Gail Riplinger discovered her hidden meaning (private interpretation) that, because of its sound and shape, the letter "S" may symbolize the Serpent as well as the Spirit.  Another means of divining hidden meanings is gematria, assigning numbers to each Hebrew letter and computing letter sequences. One prominent Messianic rabbi, Rav Itzhak Shapira, divined the blasphemy that the Serpent is Jesus:

Jewish Kabbalists state deceptively that the Hebrew Words Serpent and Messiah are the SAME WORD.  This Satanic lie will lead some Professing Christians to reject Jesus Christ and to return to Judaism.

Itzhak Shapira, Jewish Mystic & author of the Kabbalistic book, 'The Return of The Kosher Pig,' to Benny Hinn: "The Hebrew words SERPENT & MESSIAH are the SAME WORD."

"One of the main teachings of Shapira is that Christianity is Edom, which is responsible for the current 2,000-year exile of the Jews. This fable is expounded upon in the kabbalistic mystical book, Kol HaTor, and in the 1932 book, The Jewish Utopia, by Rabbi Michael Higger. While claiming to be a follower of "Yeshua," (Again, Yeshua is NOT Jesus) Shapira has made countless videos in which he vehemently tells Christians to leave Christianity and return to Judaism. According to the Midrash, the mystery of the kosher pig's return is summed up in an end-time paradigm shift scenario in which Christianity undergoes a spiritual transformation and rejection of Jesus Christ as the Messiah, which renders them kosher."

Kabbalah Torah Codes 

Kabbalah is a system of Jewish witchcraft which originated in ancient Babylon. Kabbalah incorporates various Jewish and other pagan traditions which coalesced to form a coherent system of occult doctrine and practice. A complex system of numerology, letters, signs and symbols was devised to communicate a secret doctrine.

In these last days, many occult practices are cloaked with biblical terminology and stealthily promoted to Christian audiences, such as: "Bible codes," "Biblical astrology," "divine letters," etc. Labeling an occult practice as "Biblical" doesn't change its nature which is demonic. Whatever the method used to promote divination, the Christian needs to look beyond the label and "test the spirits" according to God's word. Scripture is clear that the only safe ground for the Christian is to strictly adhere to that which God has plainly revealed in Scripture. To search God's word for hidden codes, secret doctrines, letter gods, and esoteric interpretations is to open the door to Satanic influences:

"There shall not be found among you any one that...useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer." (Deut. 18:10,11)

Gail Riplinger promotes the Rabbinic / Kabbalistic practice of deciphering hidden messages formed by the Hebrew letters in the Bible using a system of Equidistant Letter Sequences (ELS). (The Amazing Bible Codes by Gail Riplinger)  The hidden messages found in the equidistant letter sequences of the Torah are claimed to predict major historical events of special relevance to Judaism and Israel. (The Most Complete Torah Code Website)

Today, KJV-Only Kabbalists, posing as Christians, are advocating for use of an "inerrant, perfect bible" to lead Christians into occult practices and, ultimately, into the end-time deception of the Antichrist. Because Christians are unfamiliar with the occult world and its demonic practices they fall prey to deceivers like Gail Riplinger and pastors who support her, such as James Knox and his global network of KJV-Only churches. However, God has warned, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." (Hosea 4:6)  These articles have been written to inform Christians of the Satanic KJV-Only deception. Let us heed the Apostle Paul:

"Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of Satan's devices." (2 Cor. 2:11)

Gail Riplinger Promotes the Counterfeit Mark of the Beast

A major deception of the Antichrist will be to falsely identify the Mark of the Beast as the "Mark of God" or the "Mark of Israel."  Preparing her readers for this deception was Gail Riplinger's first book, New Age Bible Versions.

In the 1993 edition of New Age Bible Versions, Gail Riplinger correctly identified the Mark of the Beast as a mark or spot "inscribed on their arms or foreheads." In the 1994 edition, however, Riplinger made an abrupt change by stating that the Mark of the Beast is a microchip which will be injected "hypodermically."

"Dr. Carl Sanders, developer of the hypodermically inserted Positive Identification warns Christian audiences that new versions will deceive many, as they did him, into believing that the forbidden mark is on, not in, the hand or forehead [Sanders is lying]. Is the U.S. government's top secret laboratory at Los Alamos creating this coerse [sic] people to conform to the one world political and religious system of the antichrist?"

The purpose for Riplinger's revision was to mislead readers that the Mark of the Beast is not a brand or tattoo of The Six-Pointed Star, the Seal of Solomon, but a microchip that will be injected hypodermically. This is precisely the deception we see today with Bill Gate's Human Implantable Quantum Dot Microneedle Vaccination Delivery System. The microchip that Bill Gates intends to be injected or vaccinated is called a Digital Identity. The organization at the forefront of implementing this Satanic program is called ID 2020. ID 2020's partners include Microsoft, the Rockefeller Foundation, and Gavi, a vaccine alliance.
