The Presidents Code – Grover Cleveland 2nd term (summary)

The Presidents Code – Grover Cleveland

Grover Cleveland 2

 

The Presidents Code is a ‘cypher’ based upon the name meanings of the U.S. Presidents. Amazingly, their name meanings tell the story of the Biblical text, from the beginning of creation unto the coming of Messiah. In and of itself this is an incredible display of the Hand of God directing the course of history in America. However, this is just the start. Based upon the premise of this code, it is seen that the very characters of the Presidents, from their personal characters to the events that occurred during their Presidencies reveal in parable form the exact same events of the Biblical narrative of which their name meanings describe.

 

In the Presidents Code, Grover Cleveland‘s name meaning is pointing to Jacob dwelling in the land of Canaan. His first term was a picture of Jacob dwelling in the land of Canaan after coming out of Padan Aram. His second term displays Jacob dwelling in the land after the slaughter of the inhabitants of Shechem. This is significant as these time periods parallel in Jacob’s life. When Jacob left Padan Aram on his way back to Canaan he had to face the danger of meeting his brother Esau (Genesis 32:7). On the way back, Jacob wrestled with the Angel and was renamed Israel (Genesis 32:24-30). After the slaughter of Shechem, Jacob faced the danger of the wrath of his neighbors (Genesis 34:30), yet he was protected (Genesis 35:5) and yet again met God where it was re-iterated that his name was no longer to be Jacob, but now Israel (Genesis 35:7-15).

Stephen comes from the Greek name Στεφανος ‘Stephanos’ meaning a crown, referring to Jacob being proclaimed as Israel, the ruler or ‘king’ with God.

Grover comes from the Old English ‘graf’ which means a grove of trees tracing back to the Hebrew word אשרה ‘asherah’ which comes from the root אשר ‘asher’ which means upright.  This is also the root of ישרון ‘yeshurun’ the ‘pet’ name of Israel.

Isaiah 44:1 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen:

Isaiah 44:2 Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

Notice the admonition of the Lord that Israel not fear. When Jacob came out of Padan Aram he dealt with the fear associated with meeting his brother Esau. After the slaughter of Shechem, he dealt with the fear of possible retribution coming from the inhabitants of Canaan.

Cleveland comes from the Old English meaning ‘hilly land.’  Hilly land describing the land of Israel (Deuteronomy 8:7; 11:11).

The defining aspects of Grover Cleveland’s second term as President were the Panic of 1893 where the stock market crashed and caused the worst economic depression in the country’s history until that time. This connects to the panic or fear that Jacob felt after Levi and Simeon slaughtered the people of Shechem (Genesis 34:30).

Grover Cleveland’s second term is speaking of Jacob’s time in the land of Canaan after the slaughter of the inhabitants of Shechem, his fear of retributation and the protection of God that was given to him by the Lord’s fear being placed upon the inhabitants of the land.

The name meanings of Cleveland and the other heads of government during his second Presidency is depicted in story form as such:

Jacob dwells in the land of promise, as Israel, the one who rules with God. The justice of the Lord is revealed through punishment on the heathen and the protection of His covenant people, Israel. Jacob desired to live at peace amongst the people of Canaan but after the slaughter of Shechem he loses faith that this will happen.  God protects Jacob however, making him a peaceful ruler in the land.  After Dinah was defiled and the quarrel with Shechem had ended, Jacob traveled to Bethel, the House of God where the Lord promised to make him fruitful.  The promise to Abraham was reconfirmed with Jacob, who became the ruler of Abraham’s family.  Jacob is protected from the wrath of his neighbors and travels to Bethel where he is given the gift of God’s covenant promises.  Afterwards he travels to Ephrath where he is given the gift of a son.  Jacob then traveled to Edar where he found rest.  Jacob is promised to bring forth the fullness of the nations, a company of gentiles.  The Lord cleared the way that he might live at peace amongst his neighbors.  Jacob was given his desired protection, and set up a pillar of stone in remembrance of the Lord appearing and talking to him.  Benjamin is born, completing the family of Israel.

The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:

President Grover Cleveland: Jacob dwells in the land of promise, as Israel, the one who rules with God.

Vice President Adlai Stevenson: The justice of the Lord is revealed through punishment on the heathen and the protection of His covenant people, Israel.
