The Presidents Code – Harry S. Truman

Harry S. Truman 1

This is a summary of how Harry Truman fits into the Presidents Code parable.  For a more thorough explanation see: The Presidents Code – The Harry S. Truman 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, Harry Truman‘s name meaning is speaking of the conflict between Moses and Pharaoh.

Harry is a diminutive of both Henry and Harold.   Henry means home power or ruler.  Harold comes from the Old English name ‘Hereweald’ meaning leader of the army.  ‘Here’ means army and ‘weald’ means leader or ruler.

S is Truman’s middle name, chosen to please both of his grandfathers, Anderson Shipp Truman and Solomon Young.  Shipp is an occupational name of a boatbuilder or mariner. This is pointing to Moses, who began his days on a ‘ship’ (Exodus 2:3).

Solomon means peaceful in Hebrew. It is interesting to note that Truman began his Presidency in a prayer to God which Solomon prayed (1 Kings 3:9).

A day after the burial of Franklin Roosevelt, Truman addressed the Congress in a Joint Session, ending with these words.

“May we Americans all live up to our glorious heritage.

In that way, America may well lead the world to peace and prosperity.

At this moment, I have in my heart a prayer. As I have assumed my heavy duties, I humbly pray Almighty God, in the words of King Solomon:

“Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad; for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?”

I ask only to be a good and faithful servant of my Lord and my people.”

As mentioned previously, the letter S comes from the Greek letter Σ ‘sigma’ which traces back further to the Hebrew letter ס ‘samekh.’  ‘Samekh’ is the picture of a thorn and is related to hate as mentioned above. This points to the Pharaoh who hated Israel (Exodus 1:10; Psalm 105:25).

Truman means a ‘trusty man’ in Middle English.

In Truman’s name we see Moses (Hebrews 3:2, 5), who was raised up during the days of the Pharaoh ‘who knew not Joseph,’ who hated Israel.  Moses was the faithful one in God’s house, whose life began on a boat (Exodus 2:3), destined to bring his people peace from the bondage of Pharaoh (Exodus 18:23; Acts 7:35).

The Presidency of Harry Truman is speaking of the time of Moses being raised up to deliver Israel from the bondage of Pharaoh and victory over the beast. God reveals His Right Hand through the plagues upon His enemies and deliverance of His covenant people. Israel is delivered from slavery and death and brought to Mt. Sinai to receive His law.

The name meanings of Truman and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:

God sends the ‘true man’ Moses, His peaceful ruler who was delivered from death as a child in an ark, into Egypt to deliver His people from the affliction of Pharaoh. Israel was put into bondage, building bricks for Pharaoh but God heard their cries and delivers them from the iron furnace. He gathers them together to Moses to be delivered from the persecution of Pharaoh. Israel gathered together and believed Moses yet quickly lost faith when persecution ensued. Ultimately, Israel did come to believe the Lord sent Moses after His signs and miracles were displayed. Israel put all their faith in God after they saw He delivered them from death. Moses was used by God to bring peace and freedom to Israel where He brings them to Mt. Sinai to receive His law.

The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:

President Harry S. Truman 1945-1953

Vice President Alben W. Barkley 1949-1953

House Speaker Sam Rayburn 1940-1947

House Speaker Joseph William Martin 1947-1949

House Speaker Sam Rayburn 1949-1953

House Speaker Joseph William Martin 1953-1955

Associate Justice Hugo Black 1946

Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson 1946-1953

Truman’s Presidency is defined by the dropping of the Atom bomb and the victory of World War II. These events correspond with the battle between Moses and Pharaoh and the victory the Lord gives Israel through the plagues sent upon Egypt. Truman’s Presidency saw the beginnings of the Cold War and the Civil Rights movement which depict the time period of Israel in the wilderness and the wars they would encounter during the days of Moses and Joshua.
