The Presidents Code – Warren G. Harding
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, Warren Harding‘s name is speaking of Israel going down into Egypt to dwell as shepherds in the land of Goshen, the best of the land of Egypt.
Warren comes from a Norman French word ‘warrene’ meaning an animal enclosure. This points to the land of Goshen, where Israel dwelt as shepherds with their sheep (Genesis 45:10; 46:28; 47:27).
Gamaliel means the ‘benefit or reward of God.’ The land of Goshen was the best of the land of Egypt, ‘the reward of God.’
Genesis 46:2 And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
Genesis 46:3 And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:
Genesis 47:5 And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren are come unto thee:
Genesis 47:6 The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.
Genesis 47:27 And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.
Harding comes from the Old English name ‘Heard’ which means brave or hardy.
As mentioned in the chapter on William Howard Taft, the Hebrew word for bravery isאמץ ‘amatz’ which means strength. This is linked with putting on the helmet of salvation (1 Corinthians 16:13; Ephesians 6:10-18) of which Jacob sought during the days of the famine. This hope in Him is pointing to the time of Jacob blessing his children in Egypt (Genesis 49:18) which corresponds to the time period of which Harding’s Presidency refers to.
The Presidency of Warren G. Harding depicts Israel’s descent into Egypt to dwell in Goshen where Jacob is reunited with his son Joseph who feeds them in the midst of famine. God’s gift of salvation is revealed in the midst of the shadow of death, a table is prepared before their enemies.
The name meanings of Harding and the other heads of government during his Presidency is depicted in story form as such:
During the famine, Israel goes down into Egypt to dwell in Goshen as shepherds, the best of the land of Egypt. This is a reward from God due to Israel’s brave hope in Him. By the Lord’s grace, He brought down His camp into the land of Egypt to escape the barreness of the land of Canaan. Joseph, the peaceful ruler, provides food for Israel as they dwell in the land of Egypt as strangers. Joseph and his family a ‘born again’ through the fires of affliction in the land of Egypt. Jacob’s hope for salvation causes him and his family to leaven Canaan and make their home in Goshen where they are reunited with Joseph, the shepherd who feeds them.
The above ‘story’ comes from the following names:
President Warren G. Harding 1921-1923
Vice President Calvin Coolidge 1921-1923
House Speaker Frederick H. Gillet 1919-1925
Associate Justice Joseph McKenna 1921
Chief Justice William Howard Taft 1921-1930
Harding’s Presidency was defined by his promise of a return to ‘normalcy’ which points to Israel’s acclimation to life in the land of Egypt. His presidency began the time period of the ‘Roaring Twenties’ displaying Israel’s blessed state while dwelling in Goshen.
