The Presidents Code – President Pro Tempore William R. King
After Democrats regained control of the Senate during the 24th Congress, William King became President Pro Tempore. He would continue in that role through the entire Van Buren Presidency. He would later serve as President Pro Tempore one more time during the 27th Congress and would also become Vice President under Franklin Pierce. His name meaning is a picture of the Promised Seed, the Seed of the woman.
William comes from the Germanic words ‘wil’ meaning desire and ‘helm’ meaning the head, or helmet/protection. This is speaking of the Promised Seed (Isaiah 59:17).
Rufus is a Roman ‘cognomen’ (a combination between a nickname and surname) which means ‘red-haired.’ The Hebrew word for red-haired or ‘ruddy’ is אדמוני ‘admoniy’ and comes from the root word דם ‘dam’ which literally means blood, as it is red in color. It is also speaking of an image or likeness, as the son from the blood of his father is in his likeness.
DeVane comes from a Gaelic name ‘O Daimhin’ which comes from the word ‘damh’ meaning an ox or stag. An ox or stag in Hebrew comes from the word אל ‘el’ which means the strong authority, and also is the word for God.
King comes from the Old English ‘cyning’ meaning a king. This points to the Son of God who would come in the Image of His Father (Hebrews 1:3) and become the King of Kings (Revelation 19:16). Here then in King’s name is a picture of the Promised Seed, who would come in the image of God the Father to rule as King of Kings over all the earth.
As mentioned before, William King’s term as President Pro Tempore went through the entire Presidency of Martin Van Buren who portrays Cain, who was of the wicked one. It was the ‘seed of the serpent’ who followed the way of Cain instituting the Mystery religions which would bring forth counterfeit Christs who were to be worshiped in contradiction to the Word of God.
