The Presidents Code – The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidency

The Presidents Code – The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidency

President Franklin D. Roosevelt 3/4/1933-4/12/1945
President Franklin D. Roosevelt 3/4/1933-4/12/1945

 

Franklin Roosevelt’s name meaning is speaking of Israel dwelling in Goshen as ‘freemen.’ It is due to this freedom and prosperity that they received that the Pharaoh ‘who knew not Joseph’ decided to enslave them.

 

Franklin comes from the Middle English word ‘frankelin’ meaning a ‘freeman.’

 

Delano is from a French surname ‘De la Noye’ indicating the person was from a place called La Noue.  La Noue is from the Gaelic word meaning a ‘wetland, or swamp.’ This points to Israel’s dwellings in the land of Goshen.

 

Goshen corresponded to ‘Wady-’t-Tumeylat.’  Wadi Tumilat is a part of the Nile Delta which is one of the world’s largest river deltas.

Nile delta

Roosevelt means a rose field.  In the above aerial photograph, the land of Goshen is seen as a green, lush land to at the North of Egypt.  The Nile delta pictured resembles a flower or a rose.

FDR 1

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of the most significant figures of the 20th century. His Presidency was defined by the Depression, the New Deal and World War II. Roosevelt’s name meaning is speaking of Israel dwelling in Egypt as ‘freemen’ but his Presidency displays the rising up of the Pharaoh who ‘knew not Joseph’ who enslaved them. It was due to Israel’s fruitfulness in Goshen, dwelling as freemen, that led to the jealousy and fear of Egypt and their resulting enslavement (Psalm 105:24-25). Israel was seen as foreigners who were getting too powerful and needed to be dealt with by the Pharaoh who hated them (Exodus 1:7-14). This is the time that Moses was born amidst persecution of Pharaoh upon the male children of Israel (Exodus 1:15-22; 2:1-10).

fdr new deal

 

Roosevelt rose to prominence because of the Great Depression. His New Deal gave many in the United States relief from the trials of the Depression. The assistance given to the common man in the legislation of the New Deal brought FDR an enormous amount of popularity and led in part to him being the only President to be elected to more than two terms. He would be elected to an unprecedented four terms.

 

In the ‘code,’ the Depression was a picture of Israel going down into Egypt where they would become an army of the Lord (Psalm 68:10-11; Exodus 19:6). It was due to Israel’s fruitfulness that the Pharaoh who knew not Joseph would be able to rise up to enslave them (Exodus 1:7-14). However, the more that Pharaoh afflicted Israel, the more they grew and multiplied.

Exodus 1:12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.

The word for ‘grew’ in Exodus 1:12 is כן ‘ken’ which means to be established, literally to stand upright. The Hebrew word for depression means to be bent down. This was the state of Israel due to the affliction of their taskmasters, yet they were able to stand upright through the grace of the Lord. This is seen in parable form in the New Deal, where Americans were bent down the through trials of the Great Depression but due to the various bills in the New Deal were able to, at least in part, stand upright.

fdr supreme court

It was during the days of the Pharaoh who knew not Joseph that Moses was born. He was hidden in an ark at the age of 3 months old to avoid the decree of death given by Pharaoh (Exodus 1:22; 2:2-3). He was found by Pharaoh’s daughter and raised up in the courts of Egypt (Exodus 2:5-10; Acts 7:20-22). Moses was a protector of the weak (Exodus 2:12, 19) which led to his fleeing into Midian. In Hebrew, Midian means a place of judgment. It is interesting to note that Roosevelt came into conflict with the judges of the Supreme Court because of his New Deal which was designed to protect the weak.

fdr aristocrat

Roosevelt was from the Aristocracy so the upper class saw him as one of their own. However, that quickly changed when Roosevelt’s New Deal was brought forth. He was then seen as a traitor. This has an interesting parallel to the life of Moses who grew up as an ‘aristocrat’ in the courts of Pharaoh (Exodus 2:10) but when he stood up on behalf of his Hebrew brethren and killed an Egyptian, Pharaoh sought to kill him (Exodus 2:11-15). Following, Moses dwelt in Midian which corresponds with the conflict FDR faced against the Supreme Court who began striking down portions of his New Deal as unconstitutional.

 

Roosevelt was loved by the common man during his first term just as the people gladly welcomed Moses when he returned from Midian as their deliverer (Exodus 4:29-31). However, in FDR’s second term, another recession hit the country and the common man began to turn against FDR. This corresponds to the people rejecting Moses after Pharaoh did not let them go (Exodus 5:20-23).

fdr wwii

It was World War II that got Roosevelt back into the good graces of the people. This corresponds with the judgments that the Lord sent upon Egypt by the hand of Moses which caused him to become great in the eyes of the people (Exodus 11:3).

It is interesting to note that the origin of the word Axis, as in the enemy Axis Powers, comes from the Hebrew word ציר ‘tsiyr’ which means a strong pressing as in the weight of a door resting on a hinge. The word in Hebrew for Egypt is מצרים ‘mitsrayim’ which comes from this same word ציר ‘tsiyr.’

The etymology of the Allied Powers comes from the word ‘ally’ which means to join or be united such as a family or those in covenant. This points to Israel, the covenant people of God (Exodus 2:24). Here we see a direct connection between the Axis Powers and Egypt versus the Allied Powers representing Moses and Israel and all the mixed multitude that joined with them.

FDR polio

In 1921 after losing his bid for Vice President, Roosevelt was crippled by polio and was permanently paralyzed from the waist down as a result. This has an amazing connection back to Exodus 1. The beginning of Exodus 1 speaks of the children of Israel that came forth from his loins. The Hebrew word translated as loins is ירך ‘yarek’ which can also be translated as thigh. It was Jacob’s thigh,ירך ‘yarek,’ that was touched and permanently ‘paralyzed’ during his wrestling match with the Angel, causing him to limp the rest of his life (Genesis 32:25, 31-32).

 

The listing of the sons of Egypt in Exodus 1 is a reiteration of Genesis 46:8-27 when Jacob is preparing to go down into Egypt. This corresponds with Warren Harding’s days as President. It was Harding who defeated Democratic Presidential candidate James Cox and Vice Presidential candidate Franklin Roosevelt in the 1920 election.

hitler

Just as Pharaoh was able to rise to power during the days of Israel in Egypt, so too it was through the world wide depression that Adolf Hitler was given the ability to rise to his position of power. He used government to improve the infrastructure of Germany and prepare for war, giving millions of Germans jobs during this world wide Depression.

 

Scripture defines Pharaoh as the beast from the sea (Ezekiel 27:1; 29:3; 32:2), a picture of Satan on earth (Revelation 12:1-17; 13:1). Adolf Hitler personified this beast during his time in power. He wished to rule the world in a 1,000 year Reich, a counterfeit of the Kingdom of Heaven in which Christ Jesus will rule for a thousand years (Revelation 20:4). Hitler wished to raise up a society of ‘Ubermensch,’ which means supermen or ‘god-men,’ a counterfeit of the Sons of God who will rule the earth with Messiah (Daniel 7:18, 27; Romans 8:13-39).

 

Roosevelt supported war against Hitler long before Pearl Harbor occurred and he helped Great Britain in various ways before the U.S. was officially involved. FDR saw the war against Hitler as a struggle between Democracy and Totalitarianism.

 

“Everywhere in the world there are men of stout heart and firm faith now engaged in a great spiritual struggle to test whether that ancient wisdom is to endure, or whether it must give way to the older, discarded doctrine that some few men shall dominate multitudes of others and dictate to them their thinking, their religion, their living. This conflict has found its most terrible expression in a war which has now engulfed a large portion of humanity. In its more peaceful aspects, the same struggle also pervades all efforts of men of good will who are seeking through democracy the way to the world to come.

 

“In teaching this democratic faith to American children, we need the sustaining, buttressing aid of those great ethical religious teachings which are the heritage of our modern civilization. For “not upon strength nor upon power, but upon the spirit of God” shall our democracy be founded.” {Franklin D. Roosevelt – letter to Samuel I. Rosenman on Religion in Democracy, 16 December 1940}

This portion of Scripture which FDR references comes from Zechariah 4 which is speaking of the two anointed ones which stand by the Lord of the whole earth. This is a picture of the redeemed saints who will rule and reign with Christ in His kingdom. They are redeemed and given victory by His power, not their own.

Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

This is echoed in Psalm 44 where the Psalmist is speaking of the fathers passing down to their children how God had delivered them in days of old. It was not by their own power, but by His arm, the Light of His Countenance. His Right Hand/Arm and the Light of His Countenance is speaking of Jesus (Hebrews 1:3; Isaiah 52:10; 63:8-9; John 8:12; 2 Corinthians 4:6). It is only through faith in Him that believers can be delivered from their enemies. This salvation was foreshadowed in the deliverance of Israel from Egypt. This was culminated at the Red Sea when Israel’s enemies were destroyed and they saw the salvation of God (Exodus 14:13). The Hebrew word for salvation in Exodus 14:13 is ישועה ‘yeshuah’ which is the source of the name Jesus.

fdr freedom

The deliverance of Israel from Egypt which led to their freedom from slavery is seen in FDR’s “Four Freedoms” spoken of in his 1941 State of the Union address.  The freedom upon which the government of the United States rests, is based upon the Spirit of the Lord Jesus.

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

fdr second inaugural

The Spirit of the Lord must be relied upon in order for man to be free (Zechariah 4:6; 2 Corinthians 3:17). Roosevelt displayed the need to rely upon God in his second Inaugural address:

“In taking again the oath of office as President of the United States, I assume the solemn obligation of leading the American people forward along the road over which they have chosen to advance. While this duty rests upon me I shall do my utmost to speak their purpose and to do their will, seeking Divine guidance to help us each and every one to give light to them that sit in darkness and to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

 

Here we see Roosevelt drawing from the Scriptures in the phrase ‘give light to them that sit in darkness and to guide our feet in the way of peace.’ This is specifically referring to Jesus Christ (Isaiah 42:1-7; Luke 1:79) who delivers mankind from sin and death inherited in the Garden of Eden. This was foreshadowed in Israel going down to Egypt during the famine and the Lord delivering Israel out of Egypt by His mighty Right Arm (Psalm 107:9-10; Exodus 15:1-6).

fdr third inaugural

In Roosevelt’s third Inaugural address he reminded and rededicated the country to her duty of preserving the Democratic-Republican form of government which is designed to preserve the unalienable rights which man is given by his Creator.

 

“ON each national day of inauguration since 1789, the people have renewed their sense of dedication to the United States.

 

In Washington’s day the task of the people was to create and weld together a nation.

 

In Lincoln’s day the task of the people was to preserve that Nation from disruption from within.

 

In this day the task of the people is to save that Nation and its institutions from disruption from without.”

 

“And yet we all understand what it is—the spirit—the faith of America. It is the product of centuries. It was born in the multitudes of those who came from many lands—some of high degree, but mostly plain people, who sought here, early and late, to find freedom more freely.

The democratic aspiration is no mere recent phase in human history. It is human history. It permeated the ancient life of early peoples. It blazed anew in the middle ages. It was written in Magna Charta.

In the Americas its impact has been irresistible. America has been the New World in all tongues, to all peoples, not because this continent was a new-found land, but because all those who came here believed they could create upon this continent a new life—a life that should be new in freedom.

 

Its vitality was written into our own Mayflower Compact, into the Declaration of Independence, into the Constitution of the United States, into the Gettysburg Address.

Those who first came here to carry out the longings of their spirit, and the millions who followed, and the stock that sprang from them—all have moved forward constantly and consistently toward an ideal which in itself has gained stature and clarity with each generation.

 

The destiny of America was proclaimed in words of prophecy spoken by our first President in his first inaugural in 1789—words almost directed, it would seem, to this year of 1941: ‘The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered … deeply,… finally, staked on the experiment intrusted to the hands of the American people.’

If we lose that sacred fire—if we let it be smothered with doubt and fear—then we shall reject the destiny which Washington strove so valiantly and so triumphantly to establish. The preservation of the spirit and faith of the Nation does, and will, furnish the highest justification for every sacrifice that we may make in the cause of national defense.

 

In the face of great perils never before encountered, our strong purpose is to protect and to perpetuate the integrity of democracy.

 

For this we muster the spirit of America, and the faith of America.

 

We do not retreat. We are not content to stand still. As Americans, we go forward, in the service of our country, by the will of God.”

 

Here we see that Roosevelt believed that World War II was not merely a war between nations but a struggle between the age old conflict between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. Freedom vs. slavery. In order to better understand what Roosevelt was alluding to when he speaks of the spirit of America, we must look to the foundational concepts of government based upon the rights of man given by their Creator as defined by the Founders of this country.

America founded upon Word of God

The basis of the government upon which the United States is founded is the Word of God. Our government begins with the Declaration of Independence which declares that all men are given by their Creator the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These rights are based upon the concept of Natural law, or the Law of Reason spoken of by John Locke. The men who framed the government of the United States relied heavily upon his writings.

 

Locke, in particular, was the authority to whom the Patriots paid greatest deference.” {C. Edward Mosheim – A History of American Political Theories}

 

Locke defined the Natural law, or the Law of Reason as the Will of God. Recall that FDR says that the service of Americans is to walk in His Will.

 

“…And Reason, which is that Law, teaches all Mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his Life, Health, Liberty, or Possessions…Thus the Law of Nature stands as an Eternal Rule to all Men, Legislators as well as others. The Rules that they make for other Men’s Actions, must, as well as their own, and other Men’s Actions, be conformable to the Law of Nature, i.e. to the Will of God, of which that is a Declaration, and the fundamental Law of Nature being the preservation of Mankind, no Human Sanction can be good, or valid against it.” {John Locke – Of Civil Government}

 

Locke wrote that all men are naturally in a ‘state of perfect freedom’ and ‘a State also of Equality.’ He defined this liberty by the ‘Golden Rule of ‘do unto others as ye would have them do unto you’ spoken of by the Lord Jesus during the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ (Matthew 7:12). As all men are equal and in a state of liberty, so we must treat one another with love if we wish to receive the same.

 

Samuel Adams spoke of the rights mentioned in the Declaration of Independence as being distinctly Christian in nature.

 

“…The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty…’The Rights of the Colonists as Christians’…may be best understood by reading and carefully studying the institutes of the great Law Giver and Head of the Christian Church, which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament.” {Samuel Adams – Rights of the Colonists}

 

“The Declaration embodied the doctrine of the fundamental equality of the race, and thus clothed abstract truth with vitalizing power. Its mighty sentences aver as self-evident ‘that all men are created equal: that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as shall to them seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.’

“This American theory, expressed, ‘in words the memory of which can never die.’ It includes far more than it expresses; for by recognizing human equality and brotherhood, and the individual as the unit of society, it accepts the Christian idea of man as the basis of political institutions.” {The Rise of the Republic – Richard Frothingham}

 

John Adams in a letter written to Abigail on the day the Declaration was approved by Congress said:

 

The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.”

 

“The highest glory of the American Revolution, said John Quincy Adams, was this: it connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity…” {The Pulpit of the American Revolution – J. Wingate Thornton}

 

In FDR’s third Inaugural address he spoke of the spirit of America tracing back to the Magna Charta. The Magna Charta was written in 1215 which declared the liberties of England and led to the English Bill of Rights of 1689. The Magna Charta traces back to the law of Alfred the Great which was his interpretation of how to implement the law of God in the lives of the people of that time. Samuel Adams rightly stated that the Magna Charta was based on the law of nature where no man could be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.

 

Roosevelt mentioned the spirit of America being revealed in the Mayflower Compact. This document was based upon Christianity. The Mayflower Compact was for the ‘glorie of God, and advancement of ye Christian faith.’

 

“The Pilgrim wanted liberty for himself and his wife and little ones, and for his brethren, to walk with God in a Christian life as the rules and motives of such a life were revealed to him from God’s Word.” {Pilgrim Republic – John Goodwin}

 

“And so it was that out of rare public virtue grew our great republican government…It was said to a people trained under Christian influences, who habitually looked upward in every form of supplication, that the spirit which actuated the United Colonies ‘was as much from God as the descent of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost, and was introductory to something great and good to mankind.'” {Richard Frothingham – The Rise of the Republic}

 

A Republic where the government is by the people and for the people is based upon the principles of Christianity. This phrase, made famous by Abraham Lincoln was taken from the words of John Wycliffe, the first man to translate the Bible into the English language.

 

This Bible is for the government of the people, by the people, for the people.”

 

Whence, then, did the ideas basic to American government originally emanate, and to what source must we look for a simple clarification of its original purpose? To ask these questions should be to answer them. The New Testament is the wellspring from which our political thought derives and the idealistic goal of that thinking was a political and social system actively conductive to Christian practise. As the contemporary historian of Plymouth Plantation wrote, the motive of those who sailed on the Mayflower was their ‘great hope and inward zeal…for propagating and advancing the Gospel of the Kingdom of Christ in those remote parts of the world.’” {The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States of America – Verna M. Hall pg VIII}

 

In 1820 at a discourse delivered at Plymouth, Daniel Webster further solidified the concept that the American form of government is based upon the dictates of the Bible.

 

“…a government and a country were to commence, with the very first foundations laid under the divine light of the Christian religion…Lastly, our ancestors established their system of government on morality and religious sentiment…Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens..”

 

John Quincy Adams expressed similar sentiments.

“When our fathers abjured the name of Britons, and ‘assumed among the nations of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitled them..they announced themselves as reformers of the institutions of civil society. They spoke of the law of nature, and in the name of nature’s God; and by that sacred adjuration they pledged us, their children, to labor with united and concerted energy, from the cradle to the grave, to purge the earth of all slavery; to restore the peace of man to full enjoyment of those rights which the God of nature had bestowed upon him at his birth; to disenthrall his limbs from chains, to break the fetters from his feet and the manacles from his hands, and to set him free for the use of all his physical powers for the improvement of his own condition.”

 

“The God in whose name they spoke had taught them, in the revelation of the Gospel, that the only way in which man can discharge his duty to Him is by loving his neighbor as himself, and doing with him as he would be done by; respecting his rights while enjoying his own, and applying all his emancipated powers of body and of mind to self-improvement and the improvement of his race.”

 

This is not an antiquated concept. In 1983 the U.S. government further declared that this Nation was founded upon the Bible.

 

“This Nation was settled by immigrants seeking religious freedom. Our Declaration of Independence as well as the Constitution of the United States embraced concepts of civil government inspired by the Holy Scriptures. As a nation we have been led by great leaders—among them Presidents Washington, Jackson, Lincoln, and Wilson—who personally knew and paid tribute to the surpassing influence that the Bible is, in the words of the President Jackson, “the rock on which our Republic rests.” {Joint Congressional Resolutions Declaring 1983 as the Year of the Bible; Public Law 97-280 – October 4, 1982}

fdr fourth inaugural

In FDR’s fourth Inaugural address he spoke of the age old conflict between men who wished to live according to a republican government founded upon the principles of the Word of God, versus power greedy men who wish to rule over others by force.

“Our enemies are guided by brutal cynicism, by unholy contempt for the human race. We are inspired by a faith that goes back through all the years to the first chapter of the Book of Genesis: ‘God created man in his own image.’ We on our side are striving to be true to that divine heritage. We are fighting, as our fathers have fought, to uphold the doctrine that all men are equal in the sight of God.”

 

This struggle between a republican form of government versus a dictatorship is seen throughout history and is especially displayed in the Biblical account of Israel being enslaved by Pharaoh, a dictatorship, and then delivered unto freedom to serve God as their King (Deuteronomy 33:5; 1 Samuel 8:7).

 

A truly free people will be servants one to another with God as their King.

Matthew 23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Matthew 23:12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

 

Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

This struggle between a Republic and Totalitarianism was seen in the days of the Founders and embodied by the Declaration of Independence.

 

We have this day restored the Sovereign, to Whom alone men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting sun, may His Kingdom come.” {Samuel Adams speaking to the Continental Congress 7/4/1776}

 

In declaring their independence from earthly power and authority, our Founding Fathers declared their dependence upon Almighty God: ‘with firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.” Like the Pilgrims before them, they fully expected God to keep His side of the covenant as they obeyed His Word and followed His Spirit.” {Under God – Toby Mac and Michael Tait pg 18}

fdr pearl harbor

The conflict between these two ideologies continued in World War II. The United States did not officially get into World War II until the sneak attack of the Japanese upon Pearl Harbor. The name Pearl Harbor comes from the word ‘Pu’uloa’ which means ‘long hill.’ In the ‘code,’ this phrase ‘long hill‘ was used in reference to the division between Eden and the land of Adam’s exile. Eden represents freedom and liberty, whereas the exile out of Eden represents slavery. This is an interesting parable as the struggle between the United States and Japan/Germany represents these two ideas. A government which is to be based upon freedom versus a government based upon despotic rule.

fdr d-day

During FDR’s Presidency, this struggle is embodied by D-Day. The D-Day onslaught on mainland Europe was described as a ‘struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization. To set free a suffering humanity.’ Roosevelt led the nation in prayer that evening which was originally entitled ‘Let Our Hearts Be Stout.’

 

“My Fellow Americans:

 

Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

 

And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

 

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

 

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

 

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

 

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest — until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with the violences of war.

 

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

 

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

 

And for us at home — fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them — help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.

 

Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

 

Give us strength, too — strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

 

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

 

And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keeness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment — let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

 

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace — a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

 

Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen.”

fdr era

Franklin Roosevelt’s Presidency redefined the role of government in the lives of Americans which began the Fifth Party System that is still in effect today. The Fifth Party system separated the nation into two parties,  Liberals who believe that Roosevelt’s New Deal system of government interceding on behalf of the people is the way to go versus Conservatives who believe that government should play a smaller role in the lives of the people. This Party System corresponds to the era of Moses being sent as the ‘giver of the law.’

The time of Moses brings about a new era in the Bible of God’s dealing with man where His written Word was given and would be the guide for man’s life (Deuteronomy 32:47).

It was during FDR’s Presidency that the Bretton Woods system was set up which internationalized the monetary system in the United States.  The Bretton Woods system brought forth an international exchange rate based upon the U.S. dollar and saw the formation of the  International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), today called the World Bank Group.

 

This move towards internationalism is linked to the days of Moses.  Scripture speaks of the nations being divided according to the number of the children of Israel (Deuteronomy 32:8). This connection between the nations of the world and Israel is further seen in Exodus 15:23-27 where Israel dwelt at Elim amidst 12 palm trees and 70 wells of water. The palm trees point to the number of tribes of Israel and the wells correspond to the 70 nations mentioned in Genesis 10.

united nations

The Fifth Party System also saw the institution of the United Nations. The United Nations represents the gathering of all nations into one body. This points to Israel who is to rule all nations with a rod of iron. However, this will only truly come about during the days of the Messiah (Psalm 2:9; Revelation 2:26-27; 12:5). The United Nations then represents a false kingdom of ‘peace’ which in reality leads to slavery.

The days of Moses and the prophets lasted until the days of John the Baptist (Luke 16:16) when God’s dealings with men began to change through His Son (Hebrews 1:1) when the New Covenant was cut in Him (Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 8:1-13; 10:1-24). He would no longer deal with man through the letter of the law, but now through the Spirit of the law (2 Corinthians 3:6; Romans 8:2-4; Galatians 3:5; 5:18; Philippians 3:7-10).

This next ‘dispensation’ in the Scriptures was the time period of the Apostles and the New Covenant where the focus of God’s dealings with His people transitions from the Old Covenant, the Temple system and living in the Promised Land to the dispensation of the New Testament and the spreading of the Gospel to the four corners of the world.

For more on this next era in American politics see: The Presidents Code – Sixth Party System

The United Nations was founded upon Franklin Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” with these freedoms being incorporated into the preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Israel’s deliverance from Egypt and Pharaoh personified freedom and the giving of the law was meant to keep them free (Psalm 119:44-45).  However, the law which was meant to keep man free only leads to slavery due to the sin within man’s carnal heart (Romans 7:5; 8:7).
It is only through the process of being born again through faith in Christ and the giving of the Holy Spirit that man can truly experience freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17; Romans 7:5-6).  It is not the Old Covenant that brings this freedom, it is the new (2 Corinthians 3:1-18; Galatians 4:5-7).  Franklin Roosevelt’s Presidency corresponds with the time of Moses and the giving of the law.  The Fifth Party System in American politics also began during this time period and continues to today.  In the Presidents Code, this Party System, or era, corresponds with the Biblical dispensation of the Old Covenant which ended with the establishment of the New Covenant cut at Calvary.
The era of FDR and the United Nations corresponds with the era of Moses and the Old Covenant.  While the professed goals of the United Nations are honorable, the implementation and globalist ideology which has come forth has not always been so.  So too, the law of Moses which is “holy and just and good” and meant to bring life only leads to death in the unregenerate man (Romans 7:5-13).

The law of Moses was used as the foundation of Judaism which grew into the corrupt religious system of the Pharisees and Sadducees which opposed Christ Jesus in the 1st century.  Today this is being paralleled in American politics with the corrupt globalist political ideology of the establishment which has grown out of the political ideology instituted during the Presidency of FDR.

This globalist ideology which is today known as the “new world order” is based upon the phrase “Novus Ordo Seclorum” which the Founders of America applied to the political system they were establishing in the United States.  The vision of this “Novus Ordo” of the Founders is seen in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution which is based upon the natural law of God.  This “Novus Order” is personified in the idea of America being a “shining city” upon a hill, an example for the rest of the world of what freedom in God can bring a people.
The “Novus Ordo” which is sought for today is based upon this same foundation but it has been corrupted, just as the idea of a “shining city” has been corrupted since the days of George H.W. Bush.  Instead of America being an example which other nations can  emulate, the United States has used force to spread its ideology to other peoples.
This forced spread of Democracy to other nations of the world is justified under the doctrine of ‘American Exceptionalism.’  This idea is based upon America’s goodness seen in its form of government which is based upon rights given by a Creator.  The problem with the current usage by the establishment is that the concept of a shining city upon a hill has always been one of setting an example for others to follow, not forcing American ideals upon them by warfare.
Both the Pharisees and Sadducees believed that the Messiah would come to save Israel by force, destroying their enemies through war and setting up Israel as the head of the nations. This is depicted by the Neocon idea that the American empire will spread by the use of its military power and thus lead the peoples of the world into freedom. Contrariwise, Jesus Christ came preaching the Gospel of love and repentance towards God.  His was a message that the Kingdom of God begins within the heart of man (Luke 17:21) and would spread by peace, not violence (Mark 16:15; Luke 4:18; Romans 10:15; Ephesians 6:15).

The establishment’s corrupted view of American Exceptionalism is further paralleled in the belief of Jews during the Second Temple period that they were somehow better, or more exceptional, than other peoples because they were the seed of Abraham (John 8:33). This belief was rebuked by John the Baptist.

Matthew 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

The message of Jesus was that the actions of believers, walking in the love of the Word of God is what makes them the shining city upon a hill.

John 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Matthew 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Scripture declares this light as the Word of God (Proverbs 6:23; Psalm 119:105), who became flesh and dwelt among us (Isaiah 9:2; John 1:9; 8:12; 9:5; 12:46). During the second Temple period, Israel had come to boast that they were this light, forgetting that it is not they, but the Word of God that shines as light into the world (Romans 2:17-29).

Franklin Roosevelt spoke of these two contradicting views of “new orders.”  FDR spoke of America, during his days, continuing the “novus ordo” of the Founders.
“We have undertaken a new order of things; yet we progress to it under the framework and in the spirit and intent of the America Constitution.  We have proceeded throughout the Nation a measurable distance on the road toward this new order.”  {Annual Message to the Congress January 4, 1935}
The globalist “new order” of the  establishment corresponds with the corrupt “new order” FDR applied to our enemies.
“Those who seek to establish systems of Government based upon the regimentation of all Human Beings by a handful of individual rulers…call this a new order.  It is not new and it is not order.”  {Address Delivered by President Roosevelt at Washington, March 15, 1941}

“Since the beginning of our American history we have been engaged in change – in a perpetual peaceful revolution – a revolution which goes on steadily, quietly adjusting itself to changing conditions, without the concentration camp or the quicklime in the ditch.

“The ‘World Order’ which we seek is the co-operation of free countries, working together in a friendly, civilized society.”  {Franklin Roosevelt speech to a Joint Session of Congress January 6, 1941}
