The Presidents Code – Ulysses S. Grant (summary)

The Presidents Code – Ulysses S. Grant

Ulysses S. Grant 1

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, Ulysses S. Grant‘s name meaning is speaking of the hatred between Jacob and Esau, where the elder was prophesied to serve the younger. This time period in American history personified this conflict as the North and South were still at odds after the Civil War and disagreements on how to handle Reconstruction. Grant’s full name was Hiram Ulysses Grant. Hiram means ‘exalted brother.’

Genesis 25:23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

Ulysses is the Latin form of Odysseus.  Odysseus comes from the Greek word οδυσσομαι ‘odyssomai’ meaning to hate. This points to the relationship between Jacob and Esau which is one defined by hate (Genesis 27:41; Obadiah 1:10).

It is not known what the middle initial S in Grant’s name means. Some have speculated that Grant’s middle initial S stood for Simpson which was the maiden name of his mother. Simpson means ‘son of Sim.’ Sim was a medieval short form of Simon. Simon comes from the Hebrew name שמעון ‘shimon’ which means ‘he hears.’ This points to the Lord hearing the prayer of Isaac in regards to Rebekah’s barren womb and her prayer to God about the twins within her womb (Genesis 25:21-23).

The letter S comes from the Greek ‘sigma’ which traces back further to the Hebrew letter ס ‘samekh.’  Samekh is the picture of a thorn.  In Hebrew, thorns are linked to hatred. The words in Hebrew for thorn and hatred both come from the same root סן ‘sin.’

Grant comes from the Norman French word ‘grand’ which means great or large. This again is pointing to the elder or ‘greater’ serving the younger (Genesis 25:23).

The name meaning of Ulysses S. Grant is depicting the time period of the conflict between Jacob and Esau which spanned Genesis 25:21-28:22. This encompasses the birth of Jacob and Esau, Esau selling his birthright, famine and the covenant between Abimelech and Isaac unto the theft of the blessing by Jacob which led to his leaving Canaan to escape the wrath of Esau.

The Presidency of Ulysses S. Grant is a picture of the conflicts between Jacob and Esau. The elder is prophecied to serve the younger with the promise of the Seed of the woman coming through Jacob, not Esau because of his fleshly desires. Due to the hatred of Esau, Jacob flees to Padan Aram.

The name meanings of Grant and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:

The Lord chose Jacob to be the exalted brother of Isaac and Rebekah where the elder would serve the younger.  The relationship between these twin brothers would be defined by hatred and conflict. Jacob was a man dwelling in tents, taking up the education of his ancestors which would lead to his maturity in the Word of Promise.  Jacob supplanted the birthright from Esau who despised it for a pottage of lentils.  Jacob, the younger, became the leader of the family.  Jacob would also supplant the blessing from Esau in which he would be fruitful and flourish.  Jacob would have to flee from his birthright and blessing to escape Esau’s wrath.  However, even in hiding and after deceiving his father Isaac, Jacob would receive God’s gift of the blessing.  Jacob was exiled into Padan Aram where he would hide from his brother until the time would come when he could return to Canaan to realize the blessing and birthright.  Jacob the twin, the plain man would travel to Padan Aram where God and the fear of Isaac would be with him.  As Jacob left Canaan on his way to Padan Aram he would meet with God and proclaim His awesomeness.  God had heard Esau’s threats against Jacob and gave him his grace and protection against them.

The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:

President Ulysses S. Grant: The Lord chose Jacob to be the exalted brother of Isaac and Rebekah where the elder would serve the younger.  The relationship between these twin brothers would be defined by hatred and conflict.

Speaker of the House Schuyler Colfax: The relationship between Jacob and Esau would be defined by hatred and conflict. Jacob was a man dwelling in tents, taking up the education of his ancestors which would lead to his maturity in the Word of Promise.

Speaker of the House James G. Blaine: Jacob supplanted the birthright from Esau who despised it for a pottage of lentils.

President Pro Tempore Henry B. Anthony: Jacob, the younger, became the leader of the family.  Jacob would also supplant the blessing from Esau in which he would be fruitful and flourish.

Vice President Henry Wilson: Jacob would have to flee from his birthright and blessing to escape Esau’s wrath.

President Pro Tempore Matthew H. Carpenter: However, even in hiding and after deceiving his father Isaac, Jacob would receive God’s gift of the blessing.

Chief Justice Morrison Waite:  Jacob left Canaan to dwell in Padan Aram to escape the wrath of his brother.

President Pro Tempore Henry B. Anthony:  Jacob was exiled into Padan Aram where he would hide from his brother until the time would come when he could return to Canaan to realize the blessing and birthright.

President Pro Tempore Thomas W. Ferry: Jacob the twin, the plain one, traveled from Canaan to Padan Aram where God and Isaac’s fear would dwell with him.

Speaker of the House Michael C. Kerr:  As Jacob left Canaan on his way to Padan Aram  he would meet with God and proclaim His awesomeness.

Speaker of the House Samuel J. Randall: God had heard Esau’s threats against Jacob and gave him his grace and protection against them.

The constant turmoil in the country during Ulysses Grant’s Presidency depicts the constant conflicts seen in the narrative between Jacob and Esau. The corruption in the Grant administration, the Treaty of Washington and the 1873 Economic Depression all display the early years of the two brothers of Isaac.
