The Presidents Code – Theodore Roosevelt
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, Theodore Roosevelt‘s name meaning is speaking of Joseph, sent into Egypt to preserve life.
Theodore comes from the Greek name Θεοδωρος ‘Theodoros’ which means gift of God. θεος ‘theos’ means god and δωρον ‘doron’ means gift. This gift of God is speaking of Joseph, who would be sent to Egypt to save the lives of many (Genesis 50:20).
Roosevelt means a rose field. This pointing to the land of Goshen as the Nile delta is likened unto a rose. Goshen would be the safe haven that Israel would dwell in during the world wide famine which occurred during Joseph’s tenure as ruler of Egypt. This also points to the ‘rose’ of Sharon, who is Messiah (Song of Songs 2:1-4). Joseph’s life is an incredible picture of the life of Messiah, who is THE gift of God (John 3:16).
Joseph had a barren mother (Genesis 29:31; Luke 1:27), he was a shepherd (Genesis 37:2; John 10:11), sent by his father (Genesis 37:13; Mark 12:1-11) to observe the state of affairs of his people but was hated by his brethren (Genesis 37:8; John 15:23-25) and rejected (Genesis 37:20; Luke 17:25). They conspired against him (Genesis 37:19; Psalm 2:1; 41:9; Matthew 26:59; 27:1; Acts 4:26-28), he was sold for silver (Genesis 37:28; Matthew 27:3-10) and threw him into a pit (Genesis 37:22; Isaiah 53:9; Matthew 27:57-60) but was not there when his brothers returned (Genesis 37:29; Matthew 28:6). His garments were torn (Genesis 37:34; Luke 23:45) and covered in blood (Genesis 37:31; Revelation 19:11-16). He was falsely accused (Genesis 39:14; Matthew 26:59) and imprisoned with two criminals (Genesis 40; Matthew 27:38) He became a stranger to them (Genesis 42:7; Psalm 69:8) while ascending to the right hand of the king (Genesis 37:3; John 6:62) but was later made known to them (Genesis 45:1; Zechariah 12:10).
The Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt depicts Joseph’s trials and exaltation. He was sold into Egypt, lifted up as ruler of Potiphar’s house only to be imprisoned. Yet, even in prison is given a position of leadership where he later is exalted to the position of ruler of Egypt.
The name meanings of Roosevelt and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
God sends a gift to the world by the sending forth Joseph to the land of Egypt to save the lives of many. The beloved son of Jacob is sold into Egypt due to the fury of his brothers where he becomes ruler of Potiphar’s house. Through the fury of Potiphar he is put into prison only to become ruler of all of Egypt. Joseph was sent into Egypt to preserve life that the promise to Jacob might be continued. Joseph would be the ruler of Egypt, collecting bread to preserve life through the famine, leading to his brother kneeling before him. Joseph endured the trials and discipline of the Lord and came out of them with great blessings. He was sold into Egypt, put into prison but ended up as the exalted ruler of Egypt.
The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:
President Theodore Roosevelt: God sends a gift to the world by the sending forth Joseph to the land of Egypt to save the lives of many.
Speaker of the House David B. Henderson: The beloved son of Jacob is sold into Egypt due to the fury of his brothers where he becomes ruler of Potiphar’s house. Through the fury of Potiphar he is put into prison only to become ruler of all of Egypt.
President Pro Tempore William P. Frye: Joseph would be the ruler of Egypt, collecting bread to preserve life through the famine, leading to his brother kneeling before him.
Secretary of State John Hay: Joseph endured the trials and discipline of the Lord and came out of them with great blessings.
Speaker of the House Joseph Gurney Cannon: Joseph was sold into Egypt, put into prison but ended up as the exalted ruler of Egypt.
Roosevelt’s life parallels Joseph’s on numerous levels. Joseph’s ‘goodly form,’ his dreams and the conflict with his brothers, his imprisonment and rulership in Egypt are all depicted in Roosevelt’s life. His Presidency was defined by transforming America in a world power which corresponds with Joseph’s rulership in Egypt.
