The Presidents Code – Rutherford B. Hayes

Rutherford B. Hayes 1

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 name meaning of Rutherford B. Hayes is picturing Jacob’s fleeing from Esau and dwelling in the land of Padan Aram as a shepherd with Laban.

Rutherford is a surname in Scotland.  The name has shady derivations but is related to the Celtic word ‘ruther’ which means red and a ford, which is shallow place in a river that is crossed over.  It was due to the threat of Esau (who is known as Edom meaning red – Genesis 25:30) that Jacob had to flee Canaan over the river Jordan towards Haran.

The Hebrew word for ‘ford’ is עבר ‘avar’ which is the source of the word עברית ‘ivrit’ which means Hebrew. It was during this time that the blessing of Abraham the Hebrew (Genesis 14:13) passed to Jacob (Genesis 26:12-15).

Birchard means ‘hardy birches, dweller of the hard birch.’  Birchard comes from the English ‘birch’ and the Germanic ‘ard’ meaning hard or hardy.  This word traces back further to the Hebrew word ברק ‘baraq’ which means bright or white, as in the bark of the birch tree. The birch is a tree which gets its name from its white color. After fleeing from Esau and traveling towards Padan Aram, Jacob went to live with Laban (Genesis 28:2) whose name in Hebrew means white.

Hayes is based on the Old English word ‘haes’ which means brushwood or underwood, an enclosure or hedge. Brushwood was used by the ancients, especially shepherds, to make temporary dwellings.  This was the occupation of Jacob as he served Laban for twenty years (Genesis 31:38-41).

The name meanings of Hayes and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:

Due to Esau’s anger over Jacob ‘supplanting’ his birthright and blessing, Jacob crosses over Jordan and flees to the land of Laban who he serves for twenty years as a shepherd.  Jacob desired protection so he travels from his homeland to be hidden from the wrath of his brother.  The Lord heared the promise of vengeance which comes from Esau and delivers Jacob from his hand.  Jacob, the ‘plain one’ of Isaac’s twins, travels to Mesopotamia where he meets the beautiful Rachel at a well.  In Padan Aram, Jacob dwell’s under God’s protection.

The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:

President Rutherford B. Hayes: Due to Esau’s anger over Jacob ‘supplanting’ his birthright and blessing, Jacob crosses over Jordan and flees to the land of Laban who he serves for twenty years as a shepherd.

Vice President William A. Wheeler:  Jacob desired protection so he travels from his homeland to be hidden from the wrath of his brother.

Speaker of the House Samuel J. Randall: God had heard Esau’s threats against Jacob and gave him his grace and protection against them.

President Pro Tempore Thomas W. Ferry:  Jacob the twin, the plain one, traveled from Canaan to Padan Aram where God and Isaac’s fear would dwell with him.

President Pro Tempore Allen G. Thurman: Jacob travels to Mesopotamia where he meets the beautiful Rachel at a well.  In Padan Aram, Jacob dwell’s under God’s protection.
