The Presidents Code – Speaker of the House James K. Polk
James Polk ran against fellow Democrat John Bell for the position of Speaker of the House in 1834 but was defeated. Bell joined the Whigs during his tenure as Speaker which led to Polk taking his position in 1835 as Democrats continued to hold the majority.
James Polk’s name is speaking of the victory of the Seed of the woman over the adversary of mankind. Like John Tyler, Polk would later become President, whose Presidency pictured Noah’s deliverance over the corruption of the world.
James means a supplanter or heel grabber and refers to warfare or conflict.
His middle name was Knox. Knox is a Scottish surname which comes from the Old English ‘cnocc’ meaning ’round hill.’
Polk is an abbreviated form of the Scottish name Pollack, meaning ‘from the pool or pit’ from the Gaelic word ‘poll’ meaning a ‘pool.’ In German, Polk means ‘great glory’ (Psalm 29:10).
Here we see the heel grabber or bruiser (Genesis 3:15) overcome by the Seed of the woman on a ’round hill’ (Calvary – Luke 23:33) which brings great glory.
James Polk’s term as speaker of the House continued into Martin Van Buren‘s Presidency which continues the storyline of the warfare between the seeds and the days of Cain.
