The Presidents Code – Abraham Lincoln
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, Abraham Lincoln‘s Presidency portrays the time period after the dividing of the nations and the covenant that God cuts with Abraham. Abraham was promised to be the father of a multitude and in whom would come the Promised Seed, the Seed of the woman who would defeat the adversary of mankind.
Abraham means the father of a multitude. This points to the Patriarch Abraham (Genesis 17:5).
Lincoln traces back to a Brythonic word ‘lindo’ meaning a lake or pool which has the same meaning as the English word ‘linden’ speaking of a tree by rivers of water. Lincoln also links back to the Latin word ‘colonia’ from whence comes the English word ‘colony.’
The linden tree portrays the tree by the rivers of waters spoken of in Psalm 2 which is a picture of the Tree of Life (Psalm 1:2-3; Revelation 22:2-3). This is pointing to the Messiah, the Seed of the woman who was promised to come through the lineage of Abraham (Galatians 3:16). The linden tree is seen in Isaiah 6:13, speaking of the remnant of Israel, the olive tree who are in the image and likeness of Messiah (Galatians 3:16-28).
In the Bible, waters also refer to masses of people ‘colonizing’ the earth (Psalm 65:7; Revelation 17:5). Here in Lincoln’s last name is seen the dividing of the nations spoken of in Genesis 10 and the transfer of focus in the Biblical narrative to the days of Abraham who was promised to be a father of a multitude (Genesis 16:10), who would walk in the commandments of the Lord likened unto a tree by the rivers of water (Genesis 18:18-19; 26:5; Psalm 1:1).
Abraham Lincoln’s Presidency was defined by the Civil War and the abolition of slavery. Secession of the South and the dividing of the Union began during the days of the previous President James Buchanan but came to full fruition because of Lincoln’s election to the office of President. This led the South to secede and began the conflict of the Civil War.
The Civil War lasted throughout Lincoln’s Presidency until his assassination which occurred just days after the surrender of General Lee at Appomattox. This is pointing to the days of the Patriarch Abraham who was called to leave his country and family (Genesis 12:1). In Abraham all peoples would be blessed by the Promised Seed who would come from his loins (Genesis 12:3; 15:4; 18:18; 22:18; Galatians 3:7-29). It is through this promise to Abraham of the Seed (Galatians 3:16) that all mankind would be united (Psalm 50:5; Isaiah 49:3-9; Hebrews 13:20-21; Jeremiah 50:5; Ephesians 2:15; Colossians 1:20; 2:1-11; Galatians 3:28).
Division and unification, this was theme of both Abraham Lincoln’s Presidency and the Patriarch Abraham’s call.
The Presidency of Abraham Lincoln is a picture of the days of mankind colonizing the earth after the dividing of the tongues and leading into the days of the Patriarch Abraham. Abraham was called to leave his family and land and travel to the land promised to him of the Most High where the Promised Seed would come. Abraham brought the Word/Light to the land of Canaan, living alongside the oaks and groves of Mamre. Called to walk before the Most High and be perfect.
The name meanings of Lincoln and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
God called Abraham to be a father of a multitude gives him the promise of the Seed of the woman, the ‘tree planted by the rivers of water.’ He was called to leave his land and family and travel to the ‘camp of the Lord.’ Abraham left Ur of the Chaldees to dwell in the land of Canaan, a stranger and pilgrim in the land of promise. He dwelt by groves, bringing the light of the Word to the nations. He was drawn out of Babylon to travel to the land of Canaan to inherit the Lord’s blessing. He was to be a teacher of righteousness, called to walk before God and be perfect. Abraham judged God as faithful to keep His promise and became a priest to the nations to carry forth this Word of Promise. Abraham dwelt at peace with his neighbors. The Promise and his teachings would pass down to his son Isaac. Isaac was the son of God’s grace, the man who would picture the Promised Seed, Jesus Christ. Abraham’s faith would pave the way by which man would become righteous before God and become the bride of Christ.

Abraham Lincoln’s Presidency was defined by the Civil War and the abolition of slavery. This Civil War points to the division of the peoples after the Tower of Babel and the abolition of slavery links to the promise to Abraham of the Seed of the woman who would free mankind from the slavery to sin. Abraham’s call to come out of Babylon was paralleled in Lincoln’s life of growing from a belief in an impersonal God to faith in the God of Abraham whose Hand is active in the affairs of men.
