The Presidents Code – The John F. Kennedy Presidency

The Presidents Code – The John F. Kennedy Presidency

President John F. Kennedy 1/20/1961-11/22/1963
President John F. Kennedy 1/20/1961-11/22/1963

John F. Kennedy’s name meaning is speaking of the deliverance of Israel from Egypt by the Right Hand of the Most High where He uses Moses as His representative.  His Presidency portrays this time period, in particular the second generation of Israel who left Egypt.

 

John means the camp of Yah which is referring to Israel.

 

Fitzgerald is from the French-Norman name ‘fils de Gérald’ meaning the son of Gerald.  Gerald comes from ‘ger’ meaning spear and ‘wald’ meaning ruler.  In Hebrew, the rod of the shepherd is also his ‘spear.’  Moses was sent with the Rod of God (Exodus 4:20) to deliver Israel from Pharaoh. The spear is also pointing to the righteousness of Phinehas and the victory of Israel in the wilderness over Midian, Sihon and Og.

Kennedy is the Anglicized form of ‘Ó Cinnéidigh’ meaning descendant of Cennetig.  Cennetig means ‘armored head.’  An armored head is pointing the concept of the ‘helmet of salvation.’ The helmet of salvation is Messiah (Isaiah 59:16-17), His Right Hand which delivered Israel from Egypt (Exodus 15:1-6; Psalm 98:1-3; 110:1; 118:14-16; Isaiah 52:10; 53:1; Matthew 26:64; Acts 5:31).

 

Here we see in JFK’s Presidency the ancient conflict between the Seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent (Genesis 3:15). The Seed of the woman is promised to crush the head of the serpent. This is ultimately fulfilled in the crucifixion of the Messiah but seen in shadow picture form in the deliverance of Israel from Egypt where the head of Leviathan is crushed (Psalm 74:14).

 

The Arm of the Lord is the Angel of His Presence who redeemed Israel from Egypt (Isaiah 63:5, 8-9). This is the Angel that appeared to Moses in the burning bush (Acts 7:35) and spoke to Him at Mt. Sinai (Acts 7:37-38; Deuteronomy 33:32)

jfk 1

John F. Kennedy was the youngest man elected President at the age of 43. He represented America’s youth, a ‘new generation.’ This corresponds to the second generation of Israel who were born in the wilderness (Numbers 26:63-64). While he was only in office for about 1,000 days, he was the figurehead for a great change in the political system and culture of America. So too, it was the second generation of Israel in the wilderness that led a great change in the land of Canaan where the land would be conquered and become a bastion for declaring God’s name to the nations for the next millennia.

 

Hebrews are associated with change. The word for Hebrew comes from עבר ‘avar’ which means to pass over as in passing over from the past to a new period. Hebrews are those who leave the past and press on to the mark of the high calling of the Lord (Philippians 3:13-15). They are those who are used to spread the message of the Gospel that all are in slavery to sin but are given the opportunity to be free in Christ. This message of freedom was predominant in the 1960’s. From the message of Democracy versus Communism to the Civil Rights movement, the theme of freedom was displayed.

 

Abraham, the first man called a Hebrew in Scripture (Genesis 14:13), was called to leave the past and spread the message of the Word of God, to declare the Name of the Most High (Genesis 12:8; 13:4; 21:33). He was led to a part of the world which was at the crossroads of civilization, to join North and South by a single message. The nation of Israel was delivered from slavery to go to that same land to spread the same message. They were called to be priests to the nations, joining all men to one God, by one message.

 

The Founders of the United States of America, from the Pilgrims to Washington, Adams and Madison, were called to leave the past which was defined by Monarchies and Oligarchies to a new birth of freedom. They declared the message of freedom to all mankind which was given by their Creator. This message was proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal and endowed by unalienable rights by their Creator.

 

It was during Kennedy’s Presidency that this declaration was personified. His Presidency saw the struggle between the ideology of the West which declared man is free because of these rights given by their Creator, versus the Communist nations which rejected the notion of a Creator and proclaimed that rights are given by the State. It was during Kennedy’s days that the Civil Rights movement escalated to a boiling point, a movement which was based upon the Declaration that the Founders heralded.

jfk inaugural

John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural address is full of the themes of his Presidency. He began his address with a statement that points to the second generation of Israel in the wilderness. A transition from one generation to the next, although still relying upon the same faith of their predecessors.

 

“Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens, we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom — symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning — signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago.”

 

“The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe – the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.”

 

These rights which the Founders proclaimed are based upon the natural law of God. This corresponds to Israel receiving the law of God in the wilderness.

 

“We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans — born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage — and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.”

 

Kennedy continued in his address speaking of the conflict between Democratic nations and Communistic nations:

 

“Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah— to “undo the heavy burdens … and to let the oppressed go free.”

 

This is a reference to Isaiah chapter 58 which personifies the Presidencies of JFK and Lyndon B. Johnson where the Civil Rights Movement ended segregation, where the New Frontier of Kennedy and the ‘Great Society’ of LBJ brought about relief to the poor and oppressed (Isaiah 58:6-10).

jfk new frontier

A part of this New Frontier was the creation of the Peace Corps which would bring support to the poor and needy. This also corresponds with Israel in the wilderness. The law that the Lord gave them was to be their source of peace (Proverbs 3:1-2; 16:7; Leviticus 26:2-6) where they would dwell in the land ‘under their vine and fig tree’ (1 Kings 4:25; Micah 4:4; Zechariah 3:10).

jfk cold war

Continuing with JFK’s Inaugural address:

And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavor, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.

 

All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.”

 

The Cold War represents the conflict between Israel and the Canaanite nations where Israel was to overthrow the Canaanite nations and set up a kingdom from whence the Word of God would go forth to the nations. This task of Israel began during their days in the wilderness and will ultimately culminate when Jesus Christ returns to the earth which occurs at the end of the ‘lifetime’ of the planet.

 

“In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than in mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.

 

Now the trumpet summons us again — not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are — but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, ‘rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation’ — a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.”

 

This reference to the trumpet by Kennedy is pointing to the trumpet blast heard by Israel at the giving of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 19:19). In ‘rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation,’ JFK is referring again to Scripture (Romans 12:12). This portion of Scripture is speaking of the love of which the body of Christ is called to walk in. This love is the fulfillment of the law given at Mt. Sinai from whence comes true liberty (Matthew 22:37-40; 1 Timothy 1:15; Galatians 5:13-14).

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.

Romans 12 is depicting the service of man to the Lord as living sacrifices by loving one another as one people in Christ. Taking care of one another, and attempting to live at peace with our fellow man. Not being overcome with evil, but overcoming evil with good. This is how the United States won the Cold War through the Civil Rights movement and the concept of human rights which belongs to all men.

 

Kennedy connected Romans 12 with the struggle against the common enemies of man which depict the characteristics of the devil. The one who comes to kill, steal and destroy (John 8:44; 10:10). Victory over the devil comes through love, defined by the death of Messiah on the cross (John 3:16-17).

 

“Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort?

 

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility — I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it — and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.”

 

Here we see America personifying Israel’s role to be a light to the nations, a city on a hill (Matthew 5:14; Acts 13:47).

jfk ask not

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.

 

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

 

Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.”

 

The sure reward of which Kennedy speaks of is an allusion to the mission of which Israel was called. To sow righteousness in the earth (Proverbs 11:18; Hosea 10:12; James 3:18), part of which is completing God’s work of gathering in the harvest (Psalm 126:6; John 4:30-38).

 

In John chapter 4, Jesus is teaching the disciples the concept of God’s work in reference to the Samaritan nation of whom Israel abhorred at that time (John 8:48). Jesus further displayed this concept in the parable of the Good Samaritan where the prejudice of the Jews against Samaritans was openly refuted. Messiah declares that it matters not what a person’s ‘race’ is, all that matters is the amount of love in which that person shows his fellow man (Luke 10:29-37).

jfk cold war 2

JFK’s Presidency was defined in part by the Cold War. In the ‘code,’ the Cold War represents the war between Israel and the Canaanite nations. This warfare escalated during the days of the second generation of Israel in the wilderness. It was during this time that war was seen against Arad (Numbers 21:1-3), Midian (Numbers 31:2-12) Sihon (Numbers 21:21-32) and Og (Numbers 21:33-35).

 

So too, it was during Kennedy’s administration that the Cold War escalated. Kennedy’s Presidency saw the failed Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis where the world was on the brink of nuclear war for 13 days.

jfk cuban missile crisis

The Cuban Missile Crisis was one of the most significant events in American history even though it only lasted for two weeks. This conflict was said to have been the closest that mankind has ever come to nuclear annihilation. Thankfully, Kennedy and Khrushchev were able to work out an agreement to avoid nuclear exchange. Amazingly, Nikita Khrushchev’s name meaning is linked to the days of Israel in the wilderness as well.

 

Nikita comes from the Greek word νικη ‘nike’ which means victory. His middle name Sergeyevich comes from the Latin name ‘Sergio’ which means a servant. Khrushchev derives from the name ‘Grusha’ which is a derivative of ‘Agrippina’ which means one who clears land. Here we see the servants of the Lord (Leviticus 25:42, 55) who would be victorious over the nations of Canaan, where they were to clear the land of their wickedness (Numbers 33:52; Exodus 23:34; Deuteronomy 7:2-5; 12:2-3; 20:16-18; Joshua 11:11-12).

 

Agrippina is a derivative of Ἀγρίππας ‘Agrippas’ which means hero like. This connects with Israel’s defeating of Sihon king of the Amorites and Og king of Bashan. Og was of the Nephilim, the ‘heroes of old’ (Deuteronomy 3:11; Genesis 6:4)

 

The name Cuba comes from the Taíno language and means ‘fertile land’ or ‘great place.’ This points to the land of Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey (Exodus 3:8, 17; 13:5, 33:3; Leviticus 20:24; Deuteronomy 6:3; 11:9; 26:9, 15; 27:3; 31:20).

 

Here we see the conflict between JFK and Khrushchev over missiles in Cuba depicting the conflict between Israel and the nations of Canaan.

jfk vietnam

Another aspect of the Cold War conflict that JFK was a part of was in Vietnam which he inherited from his predecessors. The Vietnam War was a part of the larger encompassing Cold War. This war depicted the wars of Israel with the Canaanite nations where Israel didn’t completely destroy them as commanded by God. Israel allowed the Canaanite people and their religions to intermingle amongst them which would be a thorn in their sides all their days (Numbers 33:55; Joshua 23:13; Judges 2:3).

jfk catholic

This mixture between truth and error, between the Word of God and the Mystery religions is portrayed in JFK who was a Catholic. It is not my desire to disparage Catholics but it is an admitted fact that Catholicism has in some cases mixed the religion of the heathen with the truth of Scripture. Catholicism admits to this in the doctrine of ‘baptism’ of pagan rites into Christianity in order to more easily admit pagan nations into the fold of their Church.

 

The precedent for this compromise was set when God commanded Israel to destroy Midian because of the matter of Baal Peor but Israel was not faithful to this decree (Numbers 31:1-24).

 

The war with Midian came as a result of Israel going ‘a-whoring’ with the daughters of Moab and Midian (Numbers 25:1-3). This is depicted in Kennedy’s adulterous ways which will be discussed in more detail later in the article.

jfk berlin

The conflict between the ideology of Democracy and Communism was perfectly portrayed in Kennedy’s 1963 speech in West Berlin called ‘Ich bin ein Berliner’ meaning ‘I am a Berliner.’ A declaration that the division of Germany represented the two aforementioned ideologies. It is no surprise that the later fall of the Berlin wall is the symbol of the fall of Communism.

 

“Two thousand years ago the proudest boast was ‘civis Romanus sum.’ Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is ‘Ich bin ein Berliner.’

 

“There are many people in the world who really don’t understand, or say they don’t, what is the great issue between the free world and the Communist world. Let them come to Berlin. There are some who say that communism is the wave of the future. Let them come to Berlin. And there are some who say in Europe and elsewhere we can work with the Communists. Let them come to Berlin. And there are even a few who say that it is true that communism is an evil system, but it permits us to make economic progress. Lass’ sic nach Berlin kommen. Let them come to Berlin.”

 

“All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words Ich bin ein Berliner!”

jfk civil rights

The Civil Rights Movement was another part of the early 60’s which defined Kennedy’s Presidency. John F. Kennedy’s Presidency is pointing to the days of Israel’s redemption from Egypt, deliverance from slavery and bondage. It was during these days in America that the Civil Rights movement moved into full swing. The Civil Rights movement began during Harry Truman‘s Presidency whose days pointed to the deliverance from Egypt and continued into Lyndon B. Johnson‘s Presidency which was speaking of the going forth of Israel into the land of Canaan, the culmination of the promise of deliverance.

 

JFK’s contribution to the Civil Rights movement is defined in a report he gave to the American people on June 11, 1963. He spoke of how this country was founded upon the declaration that all men are created equal and that the country can’t preach freedom abroad if it ignores it domestically.

 

“I hope that every American, regardless of where he lives, will stop and examine his conscience about this and other related incidents. This Nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”

 

“We are confronted primarily with a moral issue. It is as old as the scriptures and is as clear as the American Constitution. “

 

Here Kennedy rightly links the Civil Rights Movement with the Word of God.

 

“One hundred years of delay have passed since President Lincoln freed the slaves, yet their heirs, their grandsons, are not fully free. They are not yet freed from the bonds of injustice. They are not yet freed from social and economic oppression. And this Nation, for all its hopes and all its boasts, will not be fully free until all its citizens are free. “

 

Abraham Lincoln‘s presidency was a picture of the days of the Patriarch Abraham who was given the promise of the Seed of the woman who would defeat the serpent. God made covenant with Abraham and promised to give his seed the promised land, defeating the nations that dwelt there (Genesis 15:1-21). This points to the second generation of Israel who saw the words of God to Abraham in Genesis 15 fulfilled where they were brought up from Egypt to go into the Promised Land. Kennedy’s Presidency represents their days in the wilderness where the promise had yet to be fulfilled, just as during Kennedy’s Presidency the Civil Rights movement was only in its beginning stages.

jfk civil rights 2

The Civil Rights movement changed the face of the nation. The Founders declared in the Declaration of Independence, the foundation of the Republic, that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights. This declaration was not truly actualized in this country until the Civil Rights movement. Kennedy saw this revolution coming in the 50’s when he wrote his book ‘Profiles in Courage.’

 

“A revolution is coming, a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough, successful if we are fortunate enough but a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect it’s character, we cannot alter its inevitability.”

 

Here we see the ‘revolution’ that the second generation of Israel in the wilderness was to engage in. They would enter into the land of Canaan and take it over in accordance with the command of the Almighty (Deuteronomy 1:8; 4:1; 10:11). The nature of their takeover would be dependent upon their obedience to the law given through Moses (Deuteronomy 6:18; 11:8). In the ‘code,’ the Civil Rights movement is a picture of the giving of the law at Mt. Sinai and the unity derived thereof. The Civil Rights movement was based upon the Declaration given by the Founders when they declared Independence from Great Britain. This Declaration was based upon the principles found in the Holy Bible.

 

John Adams, who was one of the five authors of the Declaration, said:

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

 

The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principals of Christianity… I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” {John Adams in a letter written to Abigail on the day the Declaration}

 

This concept brings forth a fascinating connection between the history of the United States and the Law of God.

 

The foundation of the United States is the Declaration of Independence, a proclamation that man is endowed by his Creator with certain unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The United States was to be a government founded upon the natural law given by the Creator. This time period in American history points to the beginning of creation.

 

While the United States was founded upon this natural law, the principle of freedom being a right given by the Creator to all men was not realized in this country until the Civil Rights movement. This time period in American history points to the days of Israel in the wilderness, where the law was given by the hand of Moses.

 

So too, the Word of God existed from the beginning (Psalm 33:6; 119:52, 89; 1 John 2:17; 2 John 1:5-6) but was not ‘given’ until the days of Moses (John 1:17; Galatians 3:17; Romans 5:20-21).

 

The Civil Rights movement contributed greatly to the defeat of Communism due to the ideological implications. The Russians had criticized the Americans for their hypocrisy in claiming to represent freedom and Democracy while at the same time treating blacks as second class citizens. The success of the Civil Rights movement destroyed the Russians ability to justify their communistic philosophy leading to the rise of President Reagan, the ‘Great Communicator,’ who was able to eloquently depict the extreme contrast between Communism and Democracy. It was during Reagan‘s Presidency that the Year of the Bible was proclaimed declaring:

 

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.’”

 

Further linking the Civil Rights movement with the Word of God is the end of slavery seen in the days of Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln’s Presidency was a picture of the days of Abraham who walked in the law of God (Genesis 26:5) and was faithful to teach his children the ways of the Lord (Genesis 18:19).Lincoln drew upon the words of Christ in describing the division of the nation in his days over the slavery issue.

 

A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

 

Lincoln was quoting from Matthew 12:26 where Jesus was proclaiming that mankind can either be for Him or against Him. We can be united in Him, restored to God the Father, or we can be scattered abroad (Matthew 12:30; Hosea 1:11; John 11:52).

 

The divisions we see in the natural realm amongst men of ‘race,’ class, and religion is a consequence of man’s carnal nature (Galatians 5:19-20; 1 Corinthians 3:4) which came when he partook of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. A mixture of good and evil, a divided house. The serpent brought forth a false accusation against the Lord which divided man from his God. He divided the house so that he might take dominion. Interestingly, the Greek word for devil, διαβολος ‘diabolos,’ literally means a false accuser (2 Timothy 3:3).

 

In the days of the second generation of Israel in the wilderness, this stolen dominion is being taken back, at least in the beginning stages. Ultimately, this victory over the devil comes in the form of the Messiah being crucified where the Seed of the woman’s heel is bruised and the head of the serpent is crushed (Colossians 2:14-15). Christ likened His crucifixion to the serpent being raised upon a pole, which occurred during the second generation of Israel in the wilderness (John 3:14-15; Numbers 21:7-9). Is it any surprise then that we see JFK assassinated by a deadly head wound, a parable of the crucifixion of Messiah where the head of the serpent is crushed?

jfk assassination

The assassination of John F. Kennedy is the greatest of all conspiracy theories amongst men today. The official story is that the lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, is solely responsible for the murder but there are many discrepancies in this story which leads to the varied theories regarding JFK’s death. This conspiracy aspect to the death of Kennedy lines up with the crucifixion of Messiah as well. In Psalm 2:1-3, Scripture speaks of the nations ‘conspiring’ against the Lord and His Messiah. This conspiracy leads to their demise as the Messiah is set up as king over them (Psalm 2:4-12). The fulfillment of this conspiracy is seen in the crucifixion of Christ.

 

Acts 2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

Acts 4:25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?

Acts 4:26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

Acts 4:27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

Acts 4:28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

jfk womens rights

Another aspect of the Civil Rights movement was women’s rights. In 1961, Kennedy signed the Presidential Commission on the Status of Women recognizing that women were facing discrimination which led to the Equal Pay Act of 1963 that abolished wage disparity between men and women. This too connects to the second generation of Israel in the wilderness, seen in the account of the daughters of Zelophehad getting land inheritance despite their father having no male heirs (Numbers 27).

jfk space race

During Eisenhower‘s administration, the Soviets sent Sputnik into space which was a declaration to the world that they were winning the Space Race. Kennedy set victory in the Space Race as one of his highest priorities.

 

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

 

It is for these reasons that I regard the decision last year to shift our efforts in space from low to high gear as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the office of the Presidency.”

 

The Space Race was ‘won’ when Americans put men on the moon in 1969. It is interesting to note that Jericho, the first country defeated in Canaan by Israel, literally means ‘moon.’ JFK’s Presidency is picturing the second generation of Israel in the wilderness where they dwelt in ‘the plains of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho.’ Israel was on the outside of Canaan looking in towards Jericho, which corresponds with Kennedy setting his sights on landing a man on the moon.

jfk marilyn monroe

As mentioned earlier, John F. Kennedy is well known for his infidelity which connects to the second generation of Israel in the wilderness. Their rebellious ways were personified in their committing spiritual harlotry in the ways of Baal Peor (Numbers 25:1-3). The most famous affair JFK had was with the movie star Marilyn Monroe, whose name meaning has fascinating connections to the second generation of Israel.

 

Marilyn comes from the Hebrew name מרים ‘Miryam’ which means rebellion, as in the rebellion seen at the waters of Meribah which kept Moses and Aaron from entering the promised land (Numbers 20:1-13) and the aforementioned rebellion at Shittim.

 

Monroe comes from a Scottish surname meaning ‘from the mouth of the Roe.’ Roe comes from the Irish word meaning red as in blood and is associated withe the egg in the ovaries of a female. This is a reference back to the ancient battle between the Seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent (Genesis 3:15) which is the source of the war between Israel and the Canaanite nations.

 

Marilyn’s real name was Norma Jeane Mortenson.

 

Norma comes from an old Germanic name meaning a ‘northman’ referring to a Viking. The word viking means ‘one who comes from the fords.’ A ford is a river crossing. In Hebrew this is the word עבר ‘avar’ which is the root of the word עברי ‘ivri’ which means a Hebrew. The connection to the Hebrews who were delivered from Pharaoh and crossed the Red Sea on dry ground is obvious.

 

Jeane comes from the name John, which means the camp of Yah.

 

Mortenson means son of Morten. Morten is a variant of Martin which has the meaning of a male, and also war. The war of mankind. This began in Genesis 3, and was personified in the deliverance of Israel from Egypt and completed at the crucifixion of Messiah.

 

This affair with Marilyn Monroe points to the sin of Baal Peor which led to war with Midian (Numbers 31:1-8) where all the males were slain. War (Martin) where the males (Martin) were slain.

jfk mlk

The name Martin also links to Martin Luther King Jr., the leader of the Civil Rights movement, whose message connects with Moses and Phinehas. Phinehas was the priest who put a javelin through the bodies of the Israelite Zimri and the Midianitish woman he was committing whoredom with (Numbers 25:6-18). Phinehas was zealous with the zealousness of the Lord and as a result was given an everlasting covenant of peace (Numbers 25:11-13).

 

Martin Luther King’s name meaning and life had interesting parallels to the Biblical narrative of the second generation of Israel in the wilderness as well. His first name Martin, as mentioned previously, means the ‘war of men.’ This traces back to the beginning of time where the war between the Seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent is declared. The promised victory through the Seed of the woman was given to Abraham and was passed down to his descendants. The call of Israel to destroy the nations of Canaan and dwell in the promised land is a partial fulfillment of this victory which will ultimately be seen when the Messiah returns to earth.

 

Luther is from the Germanic name ‘Leuthar’ which is a combination of ‘leud’ meaning people and ‘hari’ meaning an army. This points to the army of the Lord who bears the Word (Psalm 68:11). King comes from the Old English word ‘cyning’ which means a leader of a people from ‘cyn’ which means a family or race. ‘Cyn’ is also the origin of the English word ‘kin’ which means family. This word traces back further to the Hebrew word כהן ‘kahan’ which means a priest. Is it any surprise then that the Civil Rights movement would be led by Martin Luther King who was a preacher?

mlk i have a dream

Further linking Martin Luther King Jr. to the days of the Exodus from Egypt is his ‘I Have a Dream Speech’ which was given on August 28th, 1963. In his speech King spoke of his dream where segregation would be ended and white and blacks would live in harmony. This dream is linked to the end of the captivity of Israel which the Scriptures liken to a dream.

 

Psalm 126:1 A Song of degrees. When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

Psalm 126:2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.

The English word ‘change’ of which the Civil Rights movement brought, comes from the Hebrew word שנהshanah’ which means to change or exchange something and is also the word for sleep, the time when dreams come. Interestingly, another Hebrew word for change is מורmor’ which has the meaning of change that comes from bitterness and grief. This is the source of the word מריבה ‘meribah,’ the place of bitterness and rebellion. מור ‘mor’ is also one of the words in Hebrew for myrrh. What is the other word for myrrh? דרורderor,’ which also means freedom!

 

“And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

 

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’

 

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

 

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

 

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

 

I have a dream today!

 

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification” — one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

 

I have a dream today!

 

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; “and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.”

 

Here we see MLK referring to Isaiah 40:4-5 which is speaking of the one crying in the wilderness who comes to prepare the way of the Lord. John the Baptist came proclaiming that ‘race’ is irrelevant, all that matters is your faith in the Most High (Matthew 3:9; Luke 3:8). He prepared the way for the Glory of the Lord to be revealed, who is Messiah (Revelation 21:23). The One who gathers all mankind together (John 11:52; 12:32).

 

Biblically, race is not defined by color. Race is defined by what nature you are. In Hebrew the word for race is גזע ‘geza,’ which means the stock or root of a tree. You are either in the body of Christ or you are not. You are either for Him or against Him. You are either the seed of the woman or the seed of the serpent. You are either sprinkled by the blood of Messiah (Isaiah 52:15; Hebrew 10:22) or you are still covered in the garments of sinful flesh. This is seen in 1 Peter 2:9 where Peter proclaims believers as the inheritors of the royal priesthood of Israel (Exodus 19:5-6). Peter calls them a ‘chosen generation’ which literally means an ‘elect race.’

Now, let us continue with the link between the Presidency of JFK and the sin of Baal Peor. The sin of Baal Peor was instigated by the prophet Balaam who taught Midian that the only way to defeat Israel was to cause them to rebel against the Word of the Lord (Numbers 31:16). This was paralleled in JFK’s Presidency in the Supreme Court rulings which banned prayer and Bible reading in schools.

 

In Engel v. Vitale the Supreme Court ruled that schools could not make prayer mandatory as it was ‘unconstitutional.’ Then in 1963, in the case of Murray v. Curlett, Bible reading was officially banned in schools.

 

The woman who brought forth the lawsuit was Madalyn Murray O’Hair whose name meaning points to Balak and Balaam. Madalyn is a variant of Madeline which comes from the name Magdalene which means ‘of Magdala’ pointing to the Biblical figure Mary Magdalene. Mary means bitter, as in the bitter waters of Meribah which came forth as a result of the rebellion of Israel (Numbers 20:1-13). Her middle name Murray means a ‘seaboard settlement.’ Balaam lived by a body of water (Numbers 22:5). O’Hair means a ‘speedy messenger’ or timorous, fearful person. This is speaking of the messengers that Balak sent to Balaam as a result of his fear of Israel (Numbers 21:3, 5).

 

William Murray, who became a believer and was repudiated by his mother, claimed his mother had illegally stashed “tens of millions” away from the organization she formed to represent atheists in America. This too points to Balaam, who loved the wages of unrighteousness (2 Peter 2:15-16; Jude 1:11).

 

This ruling in 1963 was incredibly significant and has played a major role in the denigration of morality in American society. The United States education system was founded upon the Bible and principles therein. Now, the education of youths would be based upon doctrines such as evolution which deny the existence of God altogether.

 

In 1782, Congress approved the use of the Bible in school functions. “The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools.” The Bible was the basis of education in the early years of the United States. The first textbook was the New England Primer which was used between 1760 and 1843 which is based entirely on the Bible. The McGuffey readers where then used from that time to 1960 when the Bible was banned from schools. The McGuffey readers went out of use in the 60’s due to its references to the Bible.

 

The McGuffey Reader was written by William Holmes McGuffey who Abraham Lincoln called the ‘Schoolmaster of the Nation.’ McGuffey said:

“The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our notions on the character of God, on the great moral Governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions. From no source has the author drawn more conspicuously than from the sacred Scriptures. From all these extracts from the Bible I make no apology.”

 

Noah Webster, who contributed to the American educational system more than any other man, based his writings upon the Bible. In the preface to his book, History of the United States, he wrote:

“The brief exposition of the constitution of the United States, will unfold to young persons the principles of republican government; and it is the sincere desire of the writer that our citizens should early understand that the genuine source of correct republican principles is the Bible, particularly the New Testament or the Christian religion.”

John F. Kennedy’s life ended in assassination which led to Lyndon B. Johnson taking over the Presidency. Johnson’s name meaning continues the Biblical narrative of Israel entering the land of Canaan. Lee Harvey Oswald is said to be responsible for JFK’s death. His name meaning is pointing to this time of Israel entering Canaan to do battle with the Canaanites and rule over the land.

 

Lee is a surname which is derived from the Old English ‘leah’ which means a clearing. Harvey is from the Breton name ‘Haerviu’ which means battle worthy. Oswald comes from the Old English words ‘os’ meaning god and ‘weald’ meaning rule. Here we see Israel, as representatives of God, entering the land of Canaan to do battle with those nations and to ‘clear’ out the land of their unrighteous ways (Numbers 33:52; Exodus 23:34; Deuteronomy 7:2-5; 12:2-3; 20:16-18; Joshua 11:11-12).
