The Presidents Code – Dwight D. Eisenhower
This is a summary of how Dwight Eisenhower fits into the Presidents Code parable. For a more thorough explanation see: The Presidents Code – The Dwight D. Eisenhower 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, Dwight Eisenhower‘s name meaning is speaking of the deliverance of Israel from the bondage of Egypt where they are brought to Mt. Sinai and given His Word.
Dwight is an English surname which derives from the Medieval feminine name ‘Diot’ which is a diminutive of Dionysia. Dionysia is the feminine form of Dionysius. Dionysius is a combination of the Greek word Διος ‘Dios’ meaning ‘Zeus’ and Νυσα ‘Nysa’ which was a ‘legendary mountain.’
Zeus is actually a name which derives from God. Ζευς ‘Zeus‘ comes from Greek word ζην ‘zen’ meaning to live and Δια ‘Dia’ from δυι ‘dui’ meaning through. ‘To live through.’ This is the definition of God (Acts 17:28; John 1:1-9) which was corrupted by the heathen into the name of a false god.
The legendary mountain of God. This is where Moses was called.
Exodus 3:1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
David means the beloved one. Israel was delivered for the sake of the fathers who were beloved in the sight of the Lord (Deuteronomy 9:5; Micah 7:20).
On a deeper level, David comes from the Hebrew word דד ‘dad’ which means a bosom and is linked to the concept of being under the shadow of His wings. The picture is of a parent holding a child in their bosoms and looking into their eyes. Further linking this concept is the English word ‘baby.’ The word baby comes from the Hebrew word בבה ‘babah’ which means the pupil of the eye or the ‘apple of the eye.’
Scripture associates this intimate relationship of a parent looking into the eyes of their child with the relationship between God and His people being under the shadow of His wings (Psalm 17:8; Deuteronomy 32:10). This points to the deliverance of Israel from Egypt and their travels to Mt. Sinai (Exodus 19:4,17).
Exodus 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.
Deuteronomy 32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Deuteronomy 32:11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
Deuteronomy 32:12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
Eisenhower’s nickname was ‘Ike.’ Ike is a diminutive of Isaac which comes from the Hebrew word צחק ‘tsachaq’ which means laughter. This word is also referring to the redemption of Israel (Psalm 126:1-2).
Eisenhower comes from the German name ‘Eisenhauer’ which means iron cutter or iron worker. Israel being redeemed from Egypt is associated with iron working (Deuteronomy 4:20; Jeremiah 11:4).
Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Presidency depicts the deliverance of Israel from Egypt and their travels in the wilderness where they are given the Word of God. The Lord gives Israel victory over Egypt, delivers them into the wilderness where they are given the Law and sustained by manna and water from the rock.
The name meanings of Eisenhower and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
As promised, God brings Moses back to Mt. Horeb where He gives His beloved people His law, delivering them from the iron furnace of Egypt. Israel is given victory and brought into the wilderness where they are fed with manna from heaven. The Lord heard their cry while in bondage to Pharaoh and delivered them. He delivered them from the iron furnace with an His outstretched arm. It is through these afflictions in Egypt that Israel comes to true faith in the Most High. The Lord destroyed Egypt and gathered together Israel as a flock in the wilderness, led by the hand of Moses whose face shone after receiving the law. Israel quickly rebelled against Him at Meribah where the Lord gave them water to drink from a rock.

Eisenhower’s life has numerous connections to the life of Moses. He was seen as a ‘father figure,’ and another George Washington corresponding with Moses who was the representative of God to Israel. Both were seen as faithful and trustworthy. Both were ‘skilled writers’ but not good orators. Both dedicated their people to God. Eisenhower’s Presidency saw an end to the Korean war and the beginning of the Vietnam conflict, both depicting battles between Israel and the Canaanite nations. An Interstate Highway system was set up corresponding with Israel’s travels through the wilderness.
