The Presidents Code – Speaker of the House Langdon Cheves
Langdon Cheve’s became Speaker of the House when Henry Clay was sent to negotiate the Treaty of Trent which would end the war of 1812. As a result of Vice President Elbridge Gerry‘s death, Langdon Cheve’s became the next in line of Presidential succession as the office of President Pro Tempore was vacant at this time. He would remain in this situation for a short two day period until John Gaillard took the position of President Pro Tempore on November 25th.
The meaning displayed in Langdon Cheve’s name is that of the separation of Adam from the Garden of Eden due to the deception of the devil.
Langdon comes from the surname Landon. Landon means a ‘long hill’ or ridge. A ridge is a division between two lands. Here we see the division between the Garden and the rest of the earth.
Cheves is a surname derived from the Anglo-Norman-French word ‘chivere’ or ‘chevre’ meaning a goat. The Hebrew word for goat is סעיר ‘saiyr’ which is also translated as ‘devil’ as seen in Leviticus 17:7. Here then is a picture of the devil who causes Adam to be separated from Paradise.
Langdon Cheves’ life has a couple of strong links to his name meaning and the deception of the serpent in the Garden. In the code, the National Bank was a picture of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Cheves would later serve as the President of that very bank from 1819-1822. It is also said that Langdon Cheves spoke of the theory of evolution in similar terms as Charles Darwin long before Darwin ever published his book the Origin of Species. This too links Cheves to the deception of the serpent as the theory of evolution brings forth doubt upon the Word of God and its declaration that God is the Creator of the universe.
