The Presidents Code – Woodrow Wilson
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, Woodrow Wilson‘s name meaning is speaking of Israel going down into Egypt, the dark city, to keep their bellies full and their souls alive.
Wilson’s first name was Thomas. Thomas comes from the Hebrew word תָּאוֹמָא ‘Ta’oma’ meaning a twin but also full. The predominant desire of man during the days of the famine, was to keep their bellies full.
Woodrow means a ‘row of houses by a wood.’ In Hebrew, the word for woods is יער ‘ya’ar’ which is a place of darkness and is a cognate of the Hebrew word for city, עיר ‘eeyr’. Ancient Egypt is the personification of a ‘dark city.’ A place of idolatry and wickedness where God’s people would late be enslaved.
Wilson means son of William. William comes from the Germanic words ‘wil’ meaning desire and ‘helm’ meaning the head, or helmet/protection. As mentioned in the last chapter, this is pointing to Jacob’s desire of ‘protection’ from the famine (Genesis 42:1-2) and on a deeper level, the hope of salvation of mankind (Genesis 47:13-26; 50:2).
Here we see a continuation of the theme of William Howard Taft’s Presidency which points to Psalm 23 where the Good Shepherd fills our cup to overflowing even in the midst of darkness. It is interesting to note that Wilson used this imagery in his second Inaugural Address to the nation:
“The shadows that now lie dark upon our path will soon be dispelled, and we shall walk with the light all about us if we be but true to ourselves—to ourselves as we have wished to be known in the counsels of the world and in the thought of all those who love liberty and justice and the right exalted.”
Woodrow Wilson’s Presidency is a picture of Israel going down into Egypt to escape famine in Canaan. This is the time period where Pharaoh became owner of all the land and people. However, Israel dwelt in Goshen, separate from the people of Egypt and not caused to sell their property.
The name meanings of Wilson and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
Israel goes down into Egypt, the ‘dark city,’ in order to protect their lives and keep their bellies full. Jacob has doubt about leaving Canaan but is reassured by God of the promise of the covenant. He leaves his home to go into Egypt to meet his son, Joseph the ruler of the land, who stored up grain during the seven years of plenty foreseen in the dream of Pharaoh. Joseph was appointed ruler of the land of Egypt after being brought forth from prison to interpret the aforementioned dream of Pharaoh. He decrees that a fifth of the grain of Egypt be stored up during the years of plenty for preservation of life during the seven years of famine. Joseph, the peaceful ruler, prepared the land of Egypt as a place of provision during Israel’s exile.
The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:
President Woodrow Wilson 1913-1921
Vice President Thomas R. Marshall 1913-1921
House Speaker Champ Clark 1911-1919
House Speaker Frederick H. Gillet 1919-1925
Wilson’s Presidency was defined by World War I and his ‘New Freedom’ plan. His Presidency saw the institution of the Federal Reserve and ‘Wilsonian’ foreign policy, both of which have been dominating issues of American government since. This corresponds to the days of Joseph and the going down of Israel into Egypt which became the dominant themes in the Biblical narrative describing God’s dealings with the nation.
