The Presidents Code – James Madison
This article is a summary of Madison’s role in the Presidents Code parable. For the full treatise see: The Presidents Code – James Madison
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 Presidency of James Madison is a picture of the war between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. Man was cast out of the Garden due to his disobedience and kept from re-entering by Cherubim. Man lost dominion to the old serpent, the devil. Separated from his home, no longer ruler over the earth.
James comes from the Hebrew name יעקב ‘yaakov’ or Jacob which means the one who grabs the heel. This word is related to battle in the sense of a conflict between two parties. יעקב ‘yaakov’ comes from the root word עקב ‘aqav’ which means heel as in the heel of the Seed of the woman which will be bruised by the serpent (Genesis 3:15) and is also translated as ‘subtlety’ as seen in 2 Kings 10:19. Further linking to the war with the serpent is that עקב ‘aqav’ is associated with poisonous creatures which bite at man’s heel such as scorpions, serpents and spiders.
Madison means warrior from the Germanic name ‘Mathildis’ meaning strength in battle. Here we see the picture of the warfare which commenced on earth when the serpent deceived Adam and Eve and the promise that the Seed of the woman would prevail over the serpent.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Madison’s last name means warrior as mentioned previously, but also traces back to the name Matthew which comes from the Greek word Mατθαῖος ‘Matthaios’ which means ‘gift of God.’ The warfare between the Seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent is won through the gift of Messiah (John 3:16; Colossians 2:15), whose death on the cross brings liberty to all those held captive to sin and death (Galatians 5:1). This war is depicted in the War of 1812 which occurred during the Presidency of James Madison and was dubbed the “Second War for Independence”.
The name meanings of Madison and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
Due to the deception of the serpent in the Garden and the disobedience of Adam and Eve in heeding his words, warfare was decreed by God between the Seed of the woman and the serpent. Death and the curse entered the world where Adam would have to work the ground by the sweat of his brow for food and later return to that ground when he died. The promise of freedom from the serpent in reality turned into the chains of slavery to sin and death and led to Adam’s exile out of Paradise. In His grace, God promised to Adam and Eve a deliverer. Yet, He still cast them out of the Garden and placed Cherubim at the entrance to keep Adam from re-entering.
In exile from the Garden, Adam and Eve would hope in the Father’s grace and rejoice in His promise of the Seed of the woman who would defeat the serpent.
Cherubim guarded the way back to the Tree of Life, preventing Adam and Eve from partaking thereof. God did not want man to live forever in the chains of sin. Man needed to be separated from the fruit of the Tree of Life because he the devil led him to partake of the fruit of the tree of knowledge which brings death. The way back to the Tree of Life would come through the Promised Seed of the woman who would come to earth while mankind dwelt in exile from the Garden.
The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:
President James Madison: War between the serpent and mankind commences.
Vice President George Clinton: Adam is cursed to work the ground by the sweat of his brown and return to the dust when he died.
Speaker of the House Joseph Bradley Varnum: The freedom that the serpent offered Adam became bondage to sin and death.
President Pro Tempore John Milledge: God’s grace still shines through as He covers Adam and Eve’s nakedness, a foreshadowing of the covering of sin which will come through the Promised Seed of the woman, Jesus Christ.
President Pro Tempore Andrew Gregg: Man was deceived into thinking he would become a god by eating of the tree of knowledge.
President Pro Tempore John Gaillard: God promises to bring about a Redeemer for mankind through the Seed of the woman. This Seed, Jesus Christ, would bring this victory and joy to all of mankind
President Pro Tempore John Pope: The grace of the Father would be revealed through this Seed of the woman.
Speaker of the House Henry Clay: Adam is cast out of the Garden where he and his descendants would fill the earth.
President Pro Tempore William H. Crawford: Adam is exiled from the Garden but is given hope of redemption through the Seed of the woman.
Vice President Elbridge Gerry: Adam was cast out of the Garden because he allowed the serpent to cause him to doubt the Word of God. The way back to the Garden was guarded by Cherubim to prevent Adam from eating of the Tree of Life in his sinful state.
President Pro Tempore Joseph B. Varnum: Adam and Eve are cast out of the Garden because of the false freedom offered by the serpent.
Speaker of the House Langdon Cheves: Adam and Eve are separated from Paradise because of the deception of the devil.
President Pro Tempore John Gaillard: Although Adam and Eve are in exile and under the curse of sin, they are promised a Redeemer.
Speaker of the House Henry Clay: Adam was exiled from the Garden and would return to the dust when he died.
The War of 1812 and Madison’s contributions to the writing of the Constitution and Bill of Rights depicts the warfare between the seeds. The age old struggle between freedom and tyranny.
