The Presidents Code – Richard Nixon
This is a summary of how Richard Nixon fits into the Presidents Code parable. For a more thorough explanation see: The Presidents Code – The Richard Nixon 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, Richard Nixon‘s name meaning is pointing to Joshua who led Israel into victory over the Canaanite nations, albeit not in totality as commanded by the Lord.
Richard means brave power from the Germanic words ‘ric’ meaning ruler or power and ‘hard’ meaning brave. This is pointing to Joshua, called to lead Israel in warfare against Canaan.
Joshua 1:6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
Joshua 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Milhous means miller’s house. A miller is one who operates a machine to grind grain in order to produce flour for bread. As Vice President, this part of Nixon’s name was pointing to the manna Israel was fed by in the wilderness (Exodus 16:11-36). As President, this name is speaking of the victory of Israel over the nations of Canaan, as they became their ‘bread.’
Numbers 14:8 If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.
Numbers 14:9 Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.
Nixon means son of Nicholas. Nicholas is from the Greek name Νικολαος ‘Nikolaos’ which means ‘victory of the people.’ Νικολαος comes from the Greek work νικη ‘nike’ meaning victory and λαος ‘laos’ meaning people. Here we see the victory of the people of Israel, called to be priests/rulers of the nations (Exodus 19:6), whose victory is intimately linked to bread (Deuteronomy 8:7-9). Bread is associated with warfare. The Hebrew word for war is מלחמה ‘milchama’ which comes from the root לחם ‘lechem’ which means bread. This is seen as the making of bread pictures ‘warfare’ where flour and water are mixed together and kneaded, depicting in a sense ‘fighting.’ Warfare began in the Garden when Adam was punished for the sin of eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. His punishment is associated with bread as Adam must now work the ground and by the sweat of his face eat bread (Genesis 3:19).
The warfare between the Seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent is declared at this time (Genesis 3:15). Israel defeating the Canaanite nations is a foreshadowing of the Seed of the woman defeating the serpent. This war is ultimately won by THE Seed of the woman, the Messiah, the True Bread from heaven (Hebrews 2:14; Job 14:14; Isaiah 40:2; Revelation 2:17; John 6:48-51).
The Presidency of Richard Nixon is pointing to the days of Joshua and Israel conquering the land of Canaan, yet not in totality as commanded by the Lord. Due to Israel not fulfilling the decree of God, the inhabitants of the land would be thorns in their sides (Numbers 33:55; Joshua 23:13; Judges 2:3) leading to the period of Judges where the rulership of the land would pass back and forth between Israel and various nations of the area. Nixon’s Presidency ended in resignation due to the Watergate scandal, pointing to the time period of Samuel and the Kingship of Saul.
Richard Nixon’s presidency is a picture of Israel victorious over their enemies in Canaan. Israel ruled with a rod of iron but due to wolves in sheep’s clothing infiltrating their ranks they lost their power. They became the tail and not the head and backslid into the idolatrous customs of Egypt, mixing in with the wicked ways of the people of Canaan.
The name meanings of Nixon and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
Joshua, the brave ruler of Israel, leads the people into war against the Canaanite nations. Israel is given victory over these nations, they are made their ‘bread.’ Israel is given victory by the Spirit of the Most High, called to remember this victory by the offering of first fruits. The promised land is given as a gift to Israel by God where the Canaanite nations are caused to submit to Israel. Israel rules over Canaan with a rod of iron but due to synchretism between Israel and the Canaanites, ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’ enter into the midst of the nation leading them into the ways of the Mystery religions. This corruption upon every high hill causes Israel to backslide into lawlessness. As a result, Israel is brought into a series of subjugations to the nations around them, leading into their request for a king to be set over them. Israel conquered the nations of Canaan by putting on the ‘helmet of salvation’ where the Angel of the Army of the Lord led them in victory. However, this same Angel rebuked them for their disobedience in not completely destroying these names. Yet, even in their rebellion, the Lord sends ‘noble warriors’ to deliver Israel from their enemies as they are the sheep of His pasture and He is the Good Shepherd who watches over them. Israel is given the rule and power over the ancient land of promise, led by Joshua and the Angel of the Lord who are given fame as a result. Their Defender gives them the ‘pearl of great price,’ where the ‘curse is reversed’ as they rule over the nations.
