The Presidents Code – Introduction

The Presidents Code – Introduction

The Presidents Code

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 chronological order. 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/lives 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. Let me give a quick example. George Washington’s name meaning is speaking of the planting of the Garden of Eden. His character is that of the Father of the nation, pointing to THE Father who planted the aforementioned Garden.


Additionally, the wars which have occurred, the changes in the monetary system, the ‘party systems’ (political eras) and political realignments which have occurred in this country’s history follow this ‘code’ as well.


Furthermore, the name meanings of the heads of the other two branches of government line up with perfect precision to the name meanings of the Presidents they serve with. The Vice Presidents, Speakers of the House, Chief Justices, President Pro Tempores and more recently the Senate and House Majority Leaders as well as the Chiefs of Staffs all fit into this code.


I cannot express to the reader in words the profound significance of this ‘code’ and how mind blowing it has been to do the research on this project. There is a verse in Scripture however, which sums up my emotions.


Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!


When I endeavored to start writing this piece of literature, I was in the midst of working on a series of daily studies which I dubbed ‘Daily Tidbits.’ This series basically shows the vast and differing aspects of creation and society and how they display in parable or shadow picture form, the Holy Bible. Through a deeper look at each branch of science, shadow pictures of the Word are displayed in every aspect of creation. From the heavenly bodies to atoms to man himself, all aspects of creation display the handiwork of the Creator and do so in a way that serves as a second witness to the Bible. These shadow pictures and parables I have come to to call ‘Shadows of Messiah.’ This ‘Shadows of Messiah’ concept will be explained in more detail later. It is while working on this series of Daily Tidbits on the ‘Shadows of Messiah’ that I decided to do a tidbit on the Presidents of the United States for President’s Day.

I flirted with the idea of focusing on the etymology and function of the President as ‘head’ of the country but quickly changed my mind while sitting at the table at lunch one day when the name meaning of George Washington popped into my head and I realized that his name was a picture of the Garden of Eden. Next I thought of John Adams and immediately I thought of the first man, Adam. I did not know the meaning of the name Jefferson at the time but I knew that Thomas was a picture of doubt in Scripture which made me think of the serpent who infiltrated the Garden and caused Eve to doubt the Word of God, bringing sin into the world.

Now, I knew I was onto something and remembered that James Madison was the next President. His name is speaking of warfare which fits perfectly into the storyline of the Word as the war between the Seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent comes next in the narrative of the Bible.

After this revelation, I decided to sit down and look up all the names of the Presidents and was astonished to find that one by one, each person’s name continued the narrative of the Bible in sequential order. I was absolutely amazed.

After I finished up with Barack Obama’s name the magnitude of this study hit me. Here we are looking at the Mighty Hand of the Most High guiding and directing this country, not only to fulfill His will in regards to the affairs of men but also setting up men whose names tell the story of His Word. Incredibly, the Gospel is embedded in the name meanings of the leaders of this country.

I was extremely excited to come across this information and immediately shared it with my wife. She suggested that I look up the Vice Presidents as well which I agreed was a wonderful idea. I was skeptical at first so I started with the current Vice President Joe Biden to see if his name fits with President Obama’s name meaning in the storyline, otherwise I was not going to pursue it further. Lo and behold, Biden’s name indeed fits into the narrative of Messiah’s days on the earth. To say I was intrigued would be an understatement. Consequently, I then went through the names of all the Vice Presidents. From John Adams, the first Vice President down to Dick Cheney and again was astonished to find the meanings of their names fits into the same storyline of the Presidents. I came to see that the name meanings of the Vice Presidents bring out more detail in the storyline.

Being an inquisitive fellow, and loving to dig into things that relate to the Word, I decided to pursue this endeavor further with the names of the Speakers of the House and Chief Justices. This way, the heads of all 3 branches of government would be covered. Speaker by Speaker, and Justice by Justice, the storyline continued and was filled out further storyline. Absolutely Incredible.

Later as I continued research, I found the same ‘code’ could be applied to the President Pro Tempores, House and Senate Majority Leaders as well as the White House Chief of Staffs!

In our history there have been 44 Presidents, 47 Vice Presidents, 63 House Speakers, 17 Chief Justices, 124 President Pro Tempores, 25 Senate Majority Leaders, 28 House Majority Leaders and 29 White House Chiefs of Staff. This ‘President’s Code’ reveals that the meaning of the names of these individuals tell the story of the Holy Bible in sequential order. From George Washington’s name pointing to Genesis and the Garden of Eden, to Barak Obama’s name, whose meaning is speaking of the coming of the Messiah. That’s 377 men and women whose names and time periods of their terms tell us the story of the Holy Scriptures.



Name Meanings:

Why did I decide to look up these name meanings in the first place? Because, in the Scriptures, the lists of people’s names tell stories based upon the meaning of their names. Every name has a meaning and is more than just an identifying sound. Here is a short example from Genesis chapter 5 of the names of the descendants of Adam to Noah.

Adam means man, earth.

Seth mean appointed.

Enosh means mortal man.

Cainan means to receive a possession.

Mahalaleel means the praise or splendor of God.

Jared means to descend.

Enoch means to dedicate, teach.

Methuselah means death is sent.

Lamech means the despairing one.

Noah means rest.

In ‘story form’ their names mean:

Man is appointed and receives mortality. The splendor of God will descend to earth, dedicated and teaching. His death shall bring the despairing rest.

Here we see in the name meanings of the Antediluvian Patriarchs, a prophetic picture of the coming of the Savior in the names of these men. Man (Adam and Eve) sinned in the Garden of Eden and were appointed mortality, or death. The promise of the Seed of the woman was given, a promise of redemption where man would overcome the sin that was brought forth by the serpent (Genesis 3:15). The Seed of the woman was promised to come down from heaven, teaching and making disciples. His death would bring the atonement and victory promised thousands of years earlier.

This is but one example of the meanings of names in Scripture which tell a story. It is not the purpose of this ‘code’ to go into an entire treatise on this subject but every list of names I have looked up in Scripture follow this principle. It is in this spirit that I felt led to look up the meanings of the names of the U.S. Presidents. It is my hope that those who read this code will be inspired to dig deeper into Scripture and not bipass the ‘boring’ parts such as the genealogies as every word in Scripture is there for a purpose and brings glory to the Most High if we take the time to look (Proverbs 25:2).

Furthermore, In Hebrew, the word for name also means character. My name is Levi which means to be united, to join, or connect things together. This has always been a part of my personality and is perhaps, at least in part, why I had a desire to look up the meanings of the names of the Presidents. Another aspect of the name meanings of the Presidents is that of their character. As mentioned previously, I have found that each President’s name meaning not only reveals the narrative of the Bible but also displays that President’s character and/or the character of their Presidency. Of course these are men so they have multiple facets to their lives which contradict the main theme of the name meaning but the principle still stands. For example, George Washington’s presidency is a portrayal of God the Father. This is not to say that George Washington was a god but he was used by the Lord to portray His role in planting the Garden and placing Adam within it.

This aspect of Presidents characters is perhaps the most fascinating part of this “Presidents Code”. In and of itself, to have the name meanings of the Presidents depict the narrative of the Bible is incredible. To compound that with the fact that the character of their lives and Presidencies line up perfectly with this narrative is truly mind boggling in its magnitude. This may not be perfectly clear to the reader as of yet but I assure you that if you read through these series of articles you will not be disappointed, especially when it comes to the Presidents of the 20th century, which has come to be known as the American Century.

The LORD is in control of history and uses men to accomplish His desires, especially men and women who are put into positions of leadership. As the Scriptures say, ‘The heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord and He turns it whithersoever way He desires’ (Proverbs 21:1).

Through studying the name meanings of the U.S. Presidents, I have been convinced that not only does God use men to accomplish His purposes on earth, He sets them up in such a manner that the Word is preached in shadow picture, or parable form as well. It is a glory for His people to search these things out (Proverbs 25:2) and we are never disappointed at the treasure He has in store for us.

Psalm 75:7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Daniel 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

Here we see in the book of Daniel that God sets up leaders of nations according to His timing. The Set times are in the Hand of the Lord. This is a principle seen throughout the Holy Scriptures. A few good examples are seen in Genesis 17:21 & 21:2 as well as in Exodus 9:5, Job 14:13 and Psalm 102:13. The most important example is of God Almighty sending His Son to earth at the set time (Galatians 4:4; Ephesians 1:10) which was prophesied by the prophet Daniel hundreds of years earlier (Daniel 9:24-27). So too, through this ‘code’ I hope the reader will see that it is God who has raised up the leaders of this nation, according to His appointed time.


God is in control of who is set up as the leaders of a nation and He establishes them according to His will.


Acts 4:28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.


Not only is He in control of the ‘whos’ and ‘whens,’ He also guides and directs the ‘whos’ according to His own purposes.

Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

Above are but a few examples in Scripture that speak of the Lord being in control of the events of history. His Hand is especially seen in nations that are based upon His Word. Ancient Israel was based upon His Word and despite the desire of ‘scholars’ to display America as a secular nation, this country was indeed founded upon the principles of the Holy Bible as well. This will be discussed throughout these series articles. In these articles it will be shown that shadow pictures of the Word of God are embedded, not only in the lives of the Presidents but also in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution from whence springs the government of the United States.

The English word history comes from the Latin word ‘historia’ which means the telling of a connected history or series of happenings. This corresponds to the Hebrew word סדרseder’ which literally means ‘order.’ סדר ‘seder’ is the origin of the English word ‘story.’ History is a story. HIS story.

“The world’s history is a divine poem, of which the history of every nation is a canto, and every man a word. Its strains have been pealing along down the centuries, and though there have been mingled the discords of warring cannon and dying men, yet to the Christian philosopher and historian — the humble listener — there has been a Divine melody running through the song which speaks of hope and halcyon days to come.” {James A. Garfield}

Another word for history in Hebrew is ספר ‘sippur’ which means a ‘telling’ or a ‘record.’ The English word code traces back to this Hebrew word as ספר ‘saphar’ also means a number. Throughout history believers in the Divine authorship of the Bible have sought to find codes based upon deeper meanings in the text such as the numerical values of the Hebrew and Greek letters. There is also a popular series of books called the Bible Codes which have come out based upon finding hidden messages in the Bible based upon numerical sequences. This is the reason why I chose, with the assistance of my lovely wife, to call this book the Presidents code. It is a code embedded in the history of the United States of the names of the leaders of this nation which tells the story of the Bible.

Shadows of Messiah:

This code is based upon a concept which I mentioned earlier called ‘Shadows of Messiah.’ The author has found that all seven branches of science depict the Word of God in shadow picture or parable form. This should be no surprise though as Creation came forth by His Word (Psalm 33:6; John 1:1-3; Hebrews 11:3; 2 Peter 3:5). In order to understand the “Presidents Code” better, here is a little foundational information on the ‘Shadows of Messiah’ concept.


The word science means knowledge and traces back to the Hebrew word דע ‘dah.’ Hebrew is a pictographic language so each letter represents a physical object or action. In this word דע ‘dah,’ the letters depict a door, and an eye. This makes sense as knowledge comes through the eye or what we experience as the eye is the ‘doorway’ to the soul. On a deeper level this word points to Jesus Christ, the Word of God. The letters literally say ‘see the door.’ Scripture defines Jesus Christ as the door (John 10:7) in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3). The purpose of knowledge is to come to know Him (John 17:3). He is the door to heaven, the ‘4th dimension’ of which these shadow pictures derive. In essence, everything was created as a ‘mirror image’ of the spirit realm (1 Corinthians 13:12).


All things are a shadow pointing back to Messiah (Hebrews 8:5; 9:24; 10:1; Colossians 2:16-17) who is the Image of God (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15-16) the Word made flesh (John 1:1-3). In our 3 dimensional world we are familiar with 2 dimensional shadows that are cast by 3 dimensional objects. Scripture, and even science speaks of a 4th dimensional spirit realm (Ephesians 3:18). Ephesians 3:18 speaks of breadth, length, depth and height. Four dimensions, not three. Scripture associates height with heaven, or the 4th dimension (Luke 1:78; 24:40; Ephesians 4:8-10; Job 22:12; Proverbs 25:3).

A three dimensional object casts a two dimensional shadow so it is believed that a four dimensional object will cast a three dimensional shadow. The Almighty, who dwells in this ‘fourth dimension’ casts a three dimensional shadow which is seen in all His handiwork of this creation. The Bible says that in the beginning of creation the Spirit of God moved over the waters (Genesis 1:2). The word for ‘moved’ in Genesis 1:2 is מרחפת ‘merchephet’ which literally pictures a bird overshadowing her nest. The Almighty then said let there be light which cast a shadow of Himself over the entire universe (Genesis 1:3). Hence, all of His creation is a shadow pointing back to Him (Romans 1:20). To recapitulate this, God’s Spirit overshadowed all of creation and when light shined forth, His Image was embedded into all of creation.

In other words, what is being expressed here is similar to a modern day photograph.  A photograph is an image produced by light falling upon a “light-sensitive” surface.  It is not the image itself but a “shadow”.


All that we experience in this life was created to lead us to our Creator. All that we see, hear, touch, taste and feel was created so that we might ‘see’ the Most High and be drawn to Him. Just as the personality of an artist can be see through his paintings or the heart of an author can be seen through his writings, so too the creation allows us to see the Creator. All of His works are embedded with His image. The Holy Scriptures state that Messiah is all and in all (Colossians 3:11), this is because He is the Creator (Ephesians 3:9; 1 Corinthians 8:6; John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:12-17; Hebrews 1:1-12). All of creation is pointing us to Him, hence the phrase ‘Shadows of Messiah.’


Jesus the Messiah taught by parables when He walked the earth (Psalm 78:1-2; Matthew 13:11-13, 34-35; Mark 4:34). These parables were based upon the natural world where Jesus used different aspects of creation to reveal the Word of God. This can be especially seen in man who is the crown of God’s creation, who was made in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26-27; 9:6; James 3:9). The word for image in Genesis 1:26-27 & 9:6 is צלם ‘tselem’ which literally means a shadow. Man is a shadow picture of God, and in specific His Word.

The biology of man as well as his psychological and historical aspects lead us back to the Creator who molded him from the dust of the earth (Genesis 2:7). It is this aspect of creation which this code draws from.


It will be beneficial for the reader to understand that this “code” is in essence, one giant parable or shadow picture. A shadow is an image, but not the body. In order to truly get the most out of this code, I encourage the reader to look up the Scripture references which are given as the Word of God is the body of which this code points to. For brevity sake I will not be able to have each Scripture reference displayed on these pages so it will behoove the reader to keep a Bible in hand while they read.


At the beginning of each Presidency I will share the meaning of the names of the Presidents and their counterparts in ‘story form’ in order for the reader to see the picture I believe the Almighty is painting a little more easily. I will then follow with the men and their name meanings to show where this ‘story form’ comes from. Pertinent historical information will be shared as well. The bulk of this code will be focused upon the characters of the Presidents and the character of their terms in office. I hope to show in the most precise way possible how this history corresponds with the Biblical narrative of which their name meanings point to.

The President is the head of the executive branch of the government but also the ‘head’ of the entire nation. As the Presidents are the ‘head’ of the nation, they will be the focus of these series of articles. Not only will the name meanings of the Presidents be shared, the events which shaped their lives and more specifically, their Presidencies, will be expounded upon.

The actual word ‘president’ comes from the Latin word ‘praesidentum’ which means to ‘act as head or chief.’ When it comes to the human body, the head leads and guides the body in the direction which it is facing. So too, in government, the President performs this same function. When the people are no longer happy with the direction in which the President is leading them, they elect a new head. With that being said, the President as head of the nation, represents the entire nation. So, in addressing more deeply the Presidents, one will be in reality seeing the entire history of the country.


The name meanings of the Vice Presidents will be a part of this code as well as they are the ‘head’ of the Senate. For the most part, the Vice President is merely a ceremonial role with the President Pro Tempore being the ‘active’ leader of the Senate. Consequently, their name meaning will fit into the code as well. The Speaker of the House is the head of the House of Representatives, so their names will be addressed. This encompasses the legislative branch of government in the United States. The focus of the historical facets of this code will be upon the Presidents but there is some important historical connections in the lives of the leaders of Congress which will be addressed as well, albeit in a much more condensed manner.


The Chief Justice is the head of the Supreme Court, the judicial branch of government and will also be displayed in ‘code.’ Justices are appointed for life by the President and as a result their periods in office usually endure through multiple Presidents. As a result, this aspect of the code will bring forth a bird’s eye view of the Biblical time period in which the Chief Justice presides as opposed to looking at the other branches of government which focus on a more specific time period due to the shortness of their terms in office.
