The Presidents Code – James K. Polk
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, the meaning of James K. Polk‘s name is speaking of God’s people prevailing over adversity. This is depicted in Noah and his family surviving the Flood. Noah would have been considered a ‘dark horse’ who rose from obscurity to being the leader of all of mankind after the Flood.
James comes from the Hebrew name Jacob which means a supplanter or heel grabber, the one who has power with God and with men and prevails (Genesis 32:27-28).
Genesis 32:27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
Genesis 32:28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
It is interesting to note that in Genesis 32:28, the word ‘prevailed’ comes from the Hebrew word יכל ‘yakol’ which also means a vessel, as in the ark of Noah.
Knox is a Scottish surname which comes from the Old English ‘cnocc’ meaning ’round hill.’ In chapter 8, when Polk was the Speaker of the House during Martin Van Buren’s Presidency, this name was a picture of the victory of the Seed of the woman on Calvary. In this chapter, the victory is seen on the mountains of Ararat.
Polk is an abbreviated form of the Scottish name Pollack, meaning ‘from the pool or pit’ tracing back further to the Gaelic word ‘poll’ meaning a ‘pool.’ In German, Polk means ‘great glory’ (Psalm 29:10). The great Glory of God is revealed through the Flood when Noah and family are saved by being raised out of the pit (Psalm 93:1-5; 69:15; Genesis 7:18).
Here we see a picture of the flood where the ark finally sets upon a ’round hill,’ the mountains of Ararat (Genesis 8:4). On Ararat, Noah and family prevail with God and are brought up from the pit/abyss. The great Glory of God is revealed through the Flood as the wicked are destroyed and the righteous are saved (Psalm 93:1-5; 69:15; 96:2-3; 98:1-3, 8-9; Genesis 7:18).
The name meanings of Polk and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
Noah and family prevail the Flood through an ark which rests upon the mountains of Ararat. The great Glory of God is revealed through the Flood. Noah and family survive the Flood through the ark. Noah plants a vineyard after the waters recede and the earth dries. God’s mercy is shed upon Noah who survives the Flood waters. Noah once again dwells on the earth with his sons from whom all the nations of the earth will spread forth. All peoples come forth from the lineage of Noah, God’s beloved. Noah becomes the famous one who plants a vineyard.
The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:
President James K. Polk: Noah and family prevail the Flood through an ark which rests upon the mountains of Ararat. The great Glory of God is revealed through the Flood.
Vice President George M. Dallas: Noah becomes a farmer, after surviving the Flood through the ark.
Speaker of the House John Wesley Davis: Noah found grace and love in God in surviving the Flood.
President Pro Tempore Ambrose H. Sevier: Noah overcame death and would once again dwell on dry land. All nations would spread forth from his sons.
President Pro Tempore David R. Atchison: Noah was God’s beloved who would plant a vineyard and in whom all peoples would come forth, as with Adam.
Speaker of the House Robert Charles Winthrop: Noah would be the most famous man in history, who would plant a vineyard and live again on dry land with his family.
Polk’s Presidency was described as being Puritan in nature, corresponding with the purification of the earth that occurred by the Flood. The doctrine of Manifest Destiny came about during his Presidency, a picture of the command to Noah and his family to be fruitful and multiply.
