The Presidents Code – John Adams
This article is a summary of the Adam’s Presidency in the Presidents Code. For a full examination of the parable of his Presidency see: The Presidents Code – John Adams
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, the Presidency of John Adams is picture of the days of Adam in the Garden. Adam was given a help-meet who became his wife, a gift from the Most High. He was called to work the garden and to guard it. However, Adam did not fully perform his duties and would allow the serpent to sneak into Eden.
John comes from the Hebrew name יוֹחָנָן ‘Yochanan’ which means God is gracious or the camp of God.
Adams comes from the Hebrew word אדם ‘Adam’ meaning man. Here we see the Lord, by His grace, putting Adam in the Garden of Eden, the camp of God (Hebrews 12:22).
Genesis 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
The name meanings of Adams and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
The Lord placed Adam in the Garden of Eden, His camp. God saw that it was not good for man to be alone so He gave him a ‘helpmeet’ to ‘complete’ him where they would both dwell in a ‘land flowing with milk and honey.’ From this time on, man would leave father and mother and be joined to his wife. Adam was rewarded with a Paradisaical land and a wife. This gift of God was given to man but he was also given the responsibility to keep and guard it. Eden would be a land of God’s grace for Adam if he obeyed God and avoided the tree of knowledge of good and evil. It would be a land where God would speak directly to mankind where His Glory could dwell. His Presence would abide with Adam as long as he was faithful to dress and keep this land. Adam was given dominion over all the earth but but would not fully perform his duty and eventually would allow the enemy to creep into this Paradise that God had given him.

The character of John Adams depicts well Adam in the Garden. He was looked upon his peers as a man of unquestionably integrity, just as Adam was created sinless. He was a Son of Liberty who stressed virtue amongst his cabinet and inhabitants of America. The Alien and Sedition Acts were his downfall which point to Adam’s inability to protect the Garden from the serpent.
