The Presidents Code – Barack Obama
This is a summary of how Barack Obama fits into the Presidents Code parable. For a more thorough explanation see: The Presidents Code – The Obama Presidency
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, Barack Obama‘s name meaning is speaking of the Messiah who comes to earth to bear the sins of mankind, and then is exalted to the Right Hand of the Father.
Barack comes from the Hebrew word ברך ‘barack’ which means blessing. This is pointing to Jesus, the Blessed One (1 Timothy 6:15; Mark 14:61).
Hussein comes from the Arabic حسين ‘Husayn’ which is a diminutive of ‘Hasan.’ حسن ‘Hasan’ means handsome from the Arabic حسن ‘hasuna’ which means to be beautiful or good. This too is pointing to Jesus, the Beautiful One (Song of Songs 6:3-4; Isaiah 4:2; 33:17; Zechariah 9:17; John 1:14; Romans 10:15-16; 2 Peter 1:16).
Obama is of African origin and means to be crooked or bent. It traces back to a Luo word ‘bam’ which means crooked or bent down with the prefix ‘O’ which means he. He is bent down.
In Hebrew the word בם ‘bam’ is speaking of something lifted up. He is bent down and then lifted up. This is pointing to Jesus who humbled Himself to come to earth, suffering death for the sins of mankind. In this He became highly exalted and given a name above every name.
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Philippians 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Philippians 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Barack Obama’s election to the Presidency portrays the coming of the Messiah. Obama rose to prominence through his message of hope and change which resonated in the hearts of the people as they had grown jaded towards the government as a result of years of corruption. So too, when the Messiah came on the scene, the people of Israel were ready for a change as a result of the corruption of the religious leaders of their days (Matthew 23:4; Acts 15:10).
However, while there have been some changes from the previous administration, for the most part, America is still headed in the same general direction. This too corresponds with the aforementioned time period in the Bible. Although the Messiah had come to earth, the political power of the nation was still in the hands of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
Barack Obama’s Presidency depicts the days of Messiah, the One who came with the message of love, hope and change. He taught and healed the masses amidst the corrupt power structure of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, to regather all men unto Himself. He laid the foundation of His church, and before ascending back to Heaven gives them charge to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
The name meanings of Obama and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
Jesus, the Blessed, beautiful One, descends from heaven to take upon the sins of humanity in His death, then resurrects and ascends to the Right Hand of the Father. Through His death, He gathers mankind back to God and declares His name. He is the Good Shepherd who gives His life to gather together His flock, both Jews and Gentiles. John the Baptist was sent with the true message of the law, to prepare the way for the coming of the Lord. He was a voice crying in the wilderness, baptizing and purifying Israel to meet their King. Israel was prepared to receive the grace and truth of God through Jesus, the Son of Man. He is the foundation of the church, the Israel of God. The Exalted One, came from heaven to earth to give victory to Israel. He is the Olive Tree of Israel, Immanuel, God with us. He is the stone cut without hands sent from heaven to the earth to bring about God’s kingdom, sitting upon the throne of David. He is the Helmet of Salvation who delivers mankind so that they may be joined unto His church and proclaim, ‘who is like thee O God.’ Jesus is the Seed of the woman who defeats the seed of the serpent. The serpent pierced His feet and hands but in doing so had his head crushed. Through His offering as the Lamb of God, Jesus became the victorious Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The noble vine, Israel, was cut down that it might be “born again” and rejoined to the Son of God. The Messiah suffered on the mountain of Olives, enduring the cross that He might be crowned Head of the nations. Who is like God who brings salvation through the Last Adam Jesus, the King upon the holy hill of Zion. The Great One rose from the dead and is given the keys of hell and death. The Beloved Son was brought low through the cross but rose victorious giving His disciples the mission of spreading the Gospel to the world.
