The Presidents Code – Martin Van Buren
This is a summary of how Martin Van Buren fits into the Presidents Code parable. For a more thorough explanation see: The Presidents Code – Martin Van Buren
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, Martin Van Buren‘s name meaning is speaking of the state of man after the Fall and the exile out of the Garden. The war between the Seed of the woman and seed of the serpent is displayed in Cain who was of the wicked one, the first builder of cities.
Martin traces back to the Roman name ‘Martinus’ which is a derivative of ‘Martis’ and the source of the name Mars. This word is also related to the Latin word ‘mas’ which means a male. In Roman mythology Mars is the god of war which began in the beginning with the first male Adam and his decision to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Van Buren means ‘of the city’ or ‘of neighbors.’ Here we see a picture of Cain, the first murderer or man of war who went and built a city (Genesis 4:8-17).
In the Hebrew language, cities are seen primarily as negative entitities. The Hebrew word for city is ער ‘ar’ which also means darkness, or an enemy. This is why Scriptures display cities in a negative light for the most part. The word for city in Hebrew can also be spelled עיר ‘iyr’ which is also translated as a donkey depending upon the context of what is being said. This is because donkeys are of dark color.
The donkey was the symbol of Andrew Jackson, who for most of his life was an unregenerate, carnal man. Van Buren can also be displayed by the donkey as he was one of the primary men responsible for the organization of the Democratic Party which formed behind Jackson. He was so closely tied to Andrew Jackson that some historians describe his Presidency as the ‘third term of Jackson.’ Van Buren proclaimed that he would “follow in the footsteps of his illustrious predecessor” and did so in many ways, even keeping most of Jackson’s cabinet.
Martin Van Buren’s presidency continues with the storyline of the war between the seeds. The battle between good and evil. Cain murdered his brother Abel, but God gave Adam and Eve another child, Seth, to whom the Seed of the woman would come. Here the two camps separate, the seed of Cain to the one side, the seed of Seth to the other.
The name meanings of Van Buren and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
The war between the Seed of the woman and seed of the serpent is displayed in Cain who was of the wicked one, the first builder of cities. Adam was appointed another seed after Cain killed Abel, a son given by God’s grace, Seth. A foreshadowing of the victory of the Seed of the woman over the serpent is displayed in Abel’s death at the hands of Cain. The Seed of the woman would be the hope of mankind who would reign as King over all the earth. He would bring victory over the seed of the serpent, delivering them from the ‘hunter of souls.’
The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:
President Martin Van Buren: The war between the Seed of the woman and seed of the serpent is displayed in Cain who was of the wicked one, the first builder of cities.
Vice President Richard Mentor Johnson: Adam was given another seed Seth after Abel was killed by Cain. Through Seth would come the Promised Seed.
Speaker of the House James K. Polk: The Seed of the woman would bring victory through His death at Calvary, foreshadowed in Abel’s death at the hands of Cain.
President Pro Tempore William R. King: Mankind is given the hope of the Promised Seed and redemption in His blood, who would come in the image of His Father and be crowned King of Kings.
Speaker of the House Robert M.T. Hunter: Cain, who was of the wicked one, becomes famous for being the first murderer.
Van Buren was so closely tied to Andrew Jackson that some historians describe his Presidency as the ‘third term of Jackson.’ So too, his Presidency continues the theme of the war between the seeds. Van Buren, however, depicts the life of Cain who was of the evil one.
