The Presidents Code – Ronald Reagan
This is a summary of how Ronald Reagan fits into the Presidents Code parable. For a more thorough explanation see: The Presidents Code – The Ronald Reagan 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, Ronald Reagan‘s name meaning is speaking of King David, the one who was given the shield of salvation in order to defeat the Canaanite nations. The one to whom was promised an heir, who would be the Savior of the world.
Ronald is the Scottish form of ‘Ragnvaldr’ which is an Old Norse name composed of the words ‘regin’ which means advice and counsel and ‘valdr’ which means ruler. This points to David who, as did Reagan, reigned by delegation (2 Samuel 8:15-18; 20:23-26).
Wilson is from an English surname meaning ‘son of William.’ William is from the Germanic name ‘Willahelm,’ which consists of the words ‘wil’ which means will or desire and ‘helm’ meaning helmet or protection.’ As seen previously, this name points to the helmet of salvation who is Messiah (1 Thessalonians 5:8; Genesis 48:16; 49:18; Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18). This shield of salvation which was given to David.
2 Samuel 22:36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.
Reagan comes from an Irish surname ‘Ó Ríagáin’ which means a descendant of ‘Riagan.’ Riagan is derived from the word ‘ríodhgach’ which means the ‘kings heir.’ This of course is pointing to King David and the most important part of his life, the promise of an heir who would be Messiah (Psalm 72:1-17; 45:1-17; Jeremiah 23:5-6; 33:15; Isaiah 9:7; 11:1-5; 40:10-11; Zechariah 9:9; Daniel 9:24; Luke 1:32; Acts 2:30; Hebrews 1:8-9).
Ronald Reagan’s Presidency is a picture of King David, in particular the days of David as the conquering King of the Promised land. Reagan is credited with bringing about the end of the Cold War which pictured the wars between Israel and the Canaanite nations which were finally subdued during David’s days (2 Samuel 7:1). Reagan’s Presidency also pictures the transition from David to Solomon as the King of Israel as George H.W. Bush was elected to succeed Reagan as President, due in large part to Reagan’s popularity. Many of the Cold War victories were completed during Bush’s presidency, just as the Kingdom of Israel fully realized the fruit of David’s labors during the reign of Solomon.
Reagan’s Presidency became known as the Reagan Revolution, a time in which America regained a sense of Patriotism and more importantly rededicated itself to the principles upon which the Founders established this nation. The foundational principle established by the Founders was the belief in freedom which comes from God and the setting up of a government which is based upon God’s gift to mankind of self-government. It was a time in which America, through the words of Ronald Reagan, openly declared that this nation is of God and our duty is to serve and praise Him. After David was given victory over the Canaanite nations, he spoke in similar terms.
Psalm 18:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
Psalm 18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.
Ronald Reagan’s Presidency is a depiction of the days of King David, in particular his rise from shepherd to conquering King. David was given victory over his enemies by the Lord and ruled over the Promised Land. He was also given the promise that his heir would be King for eternity.
The name meanings of Reagan and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
God sets up David as the ruler of Israel and gives him the shield of salvation. God promises an heir to David who will rule all nations with a rod of iron. The Lord planted Israel in the Promised Land with David as the Light who would lead His army. David walked in the ways of the Lord, so he was given peace and security. David’s faith in God and his trust in His perfect way gave him the victory. He was a man of war but more importantly, of faith, as victory over Canaan was given not through the power of military might, but through faith in the Lord. In his days, the Philistines and the giants who dwelt therein were subdued. David, the man of war, was also a man of compassion as he showed mercy to Jonathan’s son, Mephiboshet. During the days of peace, David was given the designs to build the Temple which he would pass on to his son, Solomon. David put on the helmet of salvation and was also given the promise of the Melichizedek priesthood, the promise of the famous one, the Messiah. David is given dominion over the Promised land, a foreshadowing of the reign of his heir, the Messiah who is called to rule over all the earth. Solomon would partially fulfill the Lords promise to David of the king who would rule over the earth, but sadly, in his rebellion the kingdom was taken from him. David was the ‘son of Adam’ whose life foreshadowed the Messiah. He was given victory by the heat of the Lords anger, a picture of the second coming of Christ. David was the shepherd turned brave warrior who ruled over the promised land. He went through many trials and made mistakes but the Lord delivered him out of all his troubles.

This victory in Cold War depicts King David’s subduing of his enemies and the powerful kingdom in which he ruled.
