The Presidents Code – Thomas Jefferson
This article is a short summation of Jefferson’s Presidency parable. For a more detailed explanation see: The Presidents Code – Thomas Jefferson
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, Thomas Jefferson‘s presidency is a picture of the serpent who deceived Eve by bringing doubt to the Word of God (Genesis 3:1-5). Thomas comes from the Hebrew word תָּאוֹמָא ‘ta’oma’ which means a twin in Hebrew and is linked to doubt in Scripture (John 20:27). Doubt is the tool that the adversary used to deceived Eve, “hath God said?”
Jefferson means son of Geoffrey. Geoffrey is a Germanic word consisting of ‘gawia’ meaning territory, ‘walah’ meaning stranger, ‘gisil’ meaning hostage and ‘frid’ meaning peace. Here in this name is a depiction of a stranger who enters a territory and takes peace hostage. This is what the serpent did when he entered the Garden of Eden and led Adam and Eve to partake of the fruit which they were commanded not to eat (Matthew 13:25, 39). This sin took peace from mankind leading to continuous warfare and conflict throughout man’s history (James 4:1; 3:14-18; Genesis 3:15).
Thomas Jefferson’s character and the character of his presidency falls in line with his name meaning. Jefferson believed in the God of the Bible (James 2:19), but doubted the Word. So too with the serpent of old (Genesis 3:1; James 2:19). Jefferson was a Unitarian which is a belief system that proclaims belief in one God but denies the divinity of Jesus. Unitarians admit that Jesus was a great man and prophet of God and perhaps even a supernatural being but not one with God as Scripture proclaims (John 10:30).
The name meanings of Jefferson and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
The adversary broke into the Garden of Eden and deceived Adam and Eve by putting doubt upon the Word of God, stealing peace from the land. He came as an ‘angel of light’ but in reality brought a curse upon mankind. The gift that God had given Adam was infiltrated by serpent. Adam and Eve had been commanded by God to not partake of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. They were to have dominion over the earth and dwell in God’s Paradise of liberty. However, when Adam and Eve were tested they failed to guard this land as commanded as lost their possession and their freedom. They assembled into the midst of the Garden to eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and become cursed because of it. They hid from God when they heard His voice but were not able to escape His punishment. The serpent sneaked into the Garden of Eden and deceived Adam and Eve by adding to the Word of God and offering them a false freedom. Adam and Eve had sinned and needed to cover their nakedness. They lost their dominion and their freedom. Yet, God in His grace still covered their nakedness and gave them the promise of a Savior.
The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:
President Thomas Jefferson: The serpent brings doubt to Adam and Eve and deceives them into eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Vice President Aaron Burr: The serpent brings a false light and freedom to man which enslaves him and brings forth the curse.
Speaker of the House Nathaniel Macon: Adam allowed the gift of God, Eden, to be infiltrated by the enemy.
President Pro Tempore Abraham Baldwin: Adam and Eve were commanded to be fruitful and multiply as husband and wife.
President Pro Tempore Stephen Bradley: Adam was given dominion over the glorious land of Eden, a land of freedom.
President Pro Tempore John Brown: Adam and Eve were tested in the Garden by the serpent.
President Pro Tempore Jesse Franklin. Adam’s dwelt in his possession as a freeman.
President Pro Tempore Joseph Anderson: Adam and Eve gather together to the midst of the Garden where the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil dwelt.
Vice President George Clinton: Adam and Eve partook of the fruit of the tree of knowledge which brought forth the curse upon the earth.
President Pro Tempore Samuel Smith: After eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, man’s eyes were opened and he knew he was naked so he hid from God but could not escape His punishment.
Speaker of the House Joseph Bradley Varnum: The serpent offered freedom to Adam and Eve but in reality brought slavery to sin.
President Pro Tempore Stephen R. Bradley: Adam loses his dominion over the Garden and is cast into exile. He was free but now in bondage to sin and the curse.
President Pro Tempore John Milledge: Even in their rebellion, God’s grace is still given to Adam and Eve as He covered their nakedness.
Jefferson’s character as one who doubted the words of the Holy Scriptures depicts the doubt which the serpent brought to Adam and Eve. He did not believe in the miracles attributed to Jesus in the bible and decided to ‘make’ his own Bible which has come to be known as the ‘Jefferson Bible’ which consisted of forty six pages, corresponding to the forty six words the serpent spoke to Eve in the Garden. He was a leader in the Enlightenment, which corresponds with the false light of the serpent brought forth in the Garden.
