Daily Tidbits 2/20 – Shadows of Messiah: U.S. Presidents

FULL VERSION: Shadows of Messiah – The Presidents Code

The word ‘president’ comes from the Latin word ‘praesidentum’ which means to ‘act as head or chief.’  As seen in the previous tidbitclick here, the human head consists of 22 bones corresponding to the 22 letters of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet, the Word.  The role of the President of the United States, the ‘head’ of the nation is to ‘execute’ the precepts in the Constitution, the law or ‘Word.’  To preserve and defend this document.  Presidents swear an oath of office to do this very thing, while holding their hands on a Bible.

The wording is specified in Article Two, Section One, Clause Eight:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

The English word constitution traces back to the Hebrew word כנס which means to gather together.  This is what the constitution or law is designed to due, to bring unity to a people.  כנס comes from the root כן which is also the root of the word כהן ‘kohen’ which is the Hebrew word for priest.  A priest was to be a support of the community who upheld the law of the land.

The office of the President was designed by the Founder’s to be one of three branches of government (Executive branch) based upon the Holy Scriptures.

Isa 33:22  For YHWH is our judge; YHWH is our lawgiver; YHWH is our king; He will save us.

Samuel Adams described this type of government as enthroning Yahshua as the King of this country:
“We have this day restored the Sovereign to whom all alone men ought to be obedient. He reigns in Heaven, and with a propitious eye beholds his subjects assuming that freedom of thought, and dignity of self-direction which He bestowed on them. From the rising to the setting sun, may His kingdom come.”  {Samuel Adams speech to the Continental Congress 7/4/1776}

Patrick Henry boldly declared: “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians: not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. {May 1765 Speech to the House of Burgesses}

The Founders based their concept of government on the writings of men such as John Locke

“As Men we have God for our King, and are under the Law of Reason; as Christians, we have Jesus the Messiah for our King, and are under the Law reveal’d by him in the Gospel.” {John Locke – The Reasonableness of Christianity}

The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States of America – Verna hall pg 28
De Witt Clinton said:
“Christianity, in its essence, its doctrines, and its forms, is republican…”

“The tendency of the true Gospel principles is to bring the most absolute despotism under the limits of law; to imbue limited monarchies more and more with the spirit of popular institutions; to prepare the people to govern themselves; and finally to establish everywhere the spirit and the reality, if not the very forms of a republic.

Let us turn once more to the republican features of the churches organized by the Apostles.  These churches had officers, which were to be regarded and observed, in their proper sphere, as much as the officers of any other republic.  But the manner of their ruling was not to be as ‘Lords over God’s heritage’; ‘Whosever will be chief among you’, said the Saviour, ‘let him be your servant.’ “

In light of this fact, it is intriguing to find that the meaning of the names of the 44 U.S. Presidents tells the story of the Holy Scriptures.

Following is the meaning of the President’s names in ‘story form.’  The words that correspond to the names of the Presidents are in bold.

In the beginning, YHWH planted a garden eastward in Eden from in the midst of which was a river.  In His grace, He put man in the garden.  Into the Garden entered a stranger (the serpent) who took  peace from the man when he brought doubt to Adam and Eve, causing the to partook of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of which they were commanded not to eat.  This brought man and woman into captivity to sin.  This subtil deception of the serpent brought warfare between his seed, and the seed of the woman.  In this battle, the grace of Yah is promised to man through the Seed of the woman.  This warfare of the two seeds is early displayed in the account of Abel and Cain, who became a builder of cities.

Following these days, man multiplied upon the earth and filled the earth with violence.  Noah found grace in the eyes of Yah and was commanded to build an arkYHWH remembered Noah and stopped the flood waters.  Noah left the ark when the earth was dried and YHWH cut a covenant with him to never again destroy the earth with a flood.

Noah became a man of the earth and planted a vineyard and drank the wine thereof.  His son Ham saw his father’s nakedness which led to the cursing of his son Canaan and the blessing of Shem.  Canaan was cursed to be a slave while Shem was declared the ‘freeman’  of God.

70 nations came forth from the sons of Noah during which time Nimrod rose to power, ‘a mighty hunter before the Lord.‘  He was a false branch, a false messiah who led mankind astray.

The Almighty then called Abraham and promised to make him a father of a multitude, called to walk in His ways.  Through Abraham was promised Seed, the Son of Yah who would bring grace to mankind.  Isaac brought forth Jacob and Esau, whose relationship was defined by  hatred where the elder  would serve the younger.  The hatred of Esau, known as Edom, towards his brother caused Jacob to flee to Padan-Aram where he would live with Laban.  Jacob served Laban for 20 years as a shepherd in the open fields.  Laban deceived Jacob on numerous occasions as he dwelt as a foreigner in a strange land.  It was in this strange land that the 12 tribes of Israel were born.

On his way back to Canaan, Jacob wrestled with a Man where he was renamed Israel.  Called to rule with God, the Rock of Ages.  Israel/Jeshurun was to be a king/priest to the nations, dwelling in the land of Israel.  A shadow picture of Messiah, the Son of the Right Hand, who will rule all nations in the Kingdom.

After Shechem, the son of Hamor defiled Jacob’s daughter Dinah, Simeon and Levi destroyed the people of the land.  Jacob worried that the inhabitants of the land would seek to attack him because of this.  Jacob desired protection from the Most High.  Jacob then rose up to go to Bethel, where he was first given the promise of Abraham by YHWH (Genesis 28:11-22).  On the way, Jacob tells his children to cleanse their clothing and put away the strange gods from their midst. It is here that God puts fear into the hearts of the inhabitants of the land, giving Jacob his desired protection.  The helmet of salvation (1Thessalonians 5:8; Genesis 49:18), the gift of God, the Rose of Sharon, The Good shepherd who defends and guards His sheep.  The Good Shepherd fills the mouths of His sheep with good things, even in the midst of darkness and famine He protects and defends them as they travel down into Egypt, the ‘dark city.’

Israel went down into Egypt and dwelt in Goshen, which was a gift of the Most High to increase his seed in a place of ‘hardiness‘ a midst famine, a ‘baldness‘ of the land.  Here Israel dwelt in Egypt, yet was separated from the people of the land as shepherds were an abomination.  Here Israel multiplied in numbers to become an army of those who were to bear the Word.  For a time, Israel was a freeman dwelling in the ‘wetlands‘ of the Nile Delta, likened unto a rose.  In time, a Pharaoh who ‘knew not Joseph’ rose to power and came to hate Israel, leading them into bondage.  YHWH heard the cries of His servant Israel and rose up a trusty man named Moses who was saved as a baby on an ark.

YHWH called Moses from the mountain of God, to deliver His beloved people from the bondage of Pharaoh, from the midst of the ‘iron furnace‘ where Israel would rejoice and sing praise to their God.  By the grace of Yah, Moses came with the rod of God and delivered Israel.  He led the vine of Israel to the promised land the ‘camp of Yah‘, as they were cleansed from the defilements of Egypt.

The people of Israel were victorious over the nations of Canaan and became rulers/priests to the nations in the land that does not lack bread.  Ruling over the nations with a ‘rod of iron.’  However, Jeshurun ‘waxed fat’ and became like unto a rebellious heifer.  Wolves entered the flock and led the people into the false worship of the MysteriesIsrael rebelled against the Most High and desired a king.  Israel backslid and turned away from the commandments, ‘traversing on the waters‘ of Babylon.

YHWH raised up a noble warrior to be king of Jacob, named David, during whose days He brought back the ark of the covenant from the Philistines on a cart.
Solomon, the wise counselor, became king after David and reigned in peace.  However, his rebellion against the Most High caused by foreign wives led to the dividing of the kingdom of Israel.  It was the unwise counsel of Rehoboam that ultimately led to the split between the Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah where Rehoboam only retained 2 tribes, thus becoming a ‘little king.’

During the days of the kings of Israel, the armies of Israel become more and more wicked, walking in the ways of the heathen until the King of Assyria was brought through the Fullers Field, leading Israel into exile.  Israel desired peace, but did not obey the voice of the Lord which brings peace.  Hence, a stranger entered their territory  and took away their peace and took them hostage to their shame.

However, even in exile, YHWH spoke through the mouth of the prophets giving Israel ‘cheerful‘ hope that if they broke up their fallow ground, He would come and rain righteousness and peace upon them.  If they would do this, He would bring shame  upon their enemies and wash them of their iniquities.

He promised send His messenger to prepare His way when He comes like a refiner’s fire and like fuller‘s soap.  The blessed one, the beautiful one would descend from the throne on High and take upon the sins of mankind to deliver them from the punishment of sin.

Here concludes the meaning of the names of the Presidents of the United States from George Washington to Barack Obama in ‘story form.’

Following is the more detailed explanation:

The first President was George Washington.

George comes from the Greek word Γεωργιος ‘Georgios’ which means a farmer, one who works the earth. YHWH Elohim is described as the ‘farmer’click here who planted the Garden of Eden.

Gen 2:8  And YHWH  God planted a garden in Eden to the east; and He put the man whom He had formed there.

Washington means a people on a hill by a river, pointing to the Garden of Eden, the Mount of Yah (Ezekiel 28:13-14) from whence springs 4 rivers (Genesis 2:10).

The second President was John Adams.

John comes from the Hebrew name יוֹחָנָן ‘Yochanan’ which means YHWH is gracious.

Adams comes from the Hebrew word אדם meaning man.

Here we see YHWH, by His graceclick here, putting Adam in the Garden of Eden.

Gen 2:15  And YHWH God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden, to work it and to keep it.

The third President was Thomas Jefferson.

Thomas Jefferson is a picture of the serpent who deceived Eve by bringing doubt.  Thomas comes from the Hebrew word תָּאוֹמָא ‘ta’oma’ which means a twin in Hebrew and is linked to doubt (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.  The 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.


The fourth President was James Madison.

James is from the Hebrew name  יעקב ‘yaakov’ or Jacob which means the one who grabs the heel.  Madison means warrior from the Germanic name ‘Mahthildis’ meaning strength in battle.  Here we see the picture of the warfare which commenced on earth when the serpent deceived Adam and Eveclick here.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.

The fifth President was James Monroe.

Again, James refers battle between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent.  Monroe means ‘from the mouth of the Roe,’ a river in Ireland.  Roe comes from the Irish word ‘rua’ meaning red.  This is linked to blood, the river of life.  Further linking this concept is that word ‘roe’ also means the ‘fully ripe internal egg in the ovaries’ of a female.  The battle of the two seeds (Genesis 3:15).


The sixth President was John Quincy Adams.

John Adams, his father, as mentioned above, is a picture of YHWH placing Adam in the Garden of Eden.  The grace of Yah towards man.  Quincy comes from the Latin word ‘quintus’ which means 5.  Amazingly, the number 5 is the number of Graceclick here.

The seventh President was Andrew Jackson.

Andrew comes from the Greek word ανηρ (aner) which means man.  Jackson means son of Jack, which is a diminuitive of John.  John, again means the grace of Yah.

Here we see, two consecutive Presidents whose names give the Promise of the Son of Man coming to earth two times to save all those who would believe on Him.

Psa 96:1  O sing to YHWH a new song; sing to YHWH, all the earth.
Psa 96:2  Sing to YHWH; bless His name, bear news of His salvation day by day.
Psa 96:11  Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and the fullness of it.
Psa 96:12  Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it; then the trees of the forest shall rejoice
Psa 96:13  before YHWH; for He comes; for He comes to judge the earth; He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with His faithfulness.

The eighth President was Martin Van Buren.

Martin traces back to the Roman name ‘Martinus’ which is a derivitave of ‘Martis’ which is in the ‘genivitive case’ of the name Mars.  This word is related to the Latin word ‘mas’ which means a male.  In Roman mythology Mars is the god of war which began in the beginning with the first male Adam and his decision to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  This is seen in the punishment of the Most High that Adam would have to eat bread by the sweat of his brow.

Gen 3:19 By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until your return to the ground. For you have been taken out of it; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.

Van Buren means ‘of the city’ or ‘of neighbors.’  Here we see a picture of Cain, the first murderer or man of war who went and built a city…

Gen 4:8  And Cain talked with his brother Abel. And it happened as they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him.
Gen 4:9  And YHWH said to Cain, Where is your brother Abel? And he said, I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?
Gen 4:10  And He said, What have you done? The voice of the blood of your brother cries to Me from the ground.
Gen 4:11  And now you are cursed more than the ground which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.
Gen 4:12  When you till the ground, it will not again give its strength to you. You shall be a vagabond and a fugitive on the earth.
Gen 4:13  And Cain said to YHWH, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
Gen 4:14  Behold! You have driven me out from the face of the earth today. And I shall be hidden from Your face. And I shall be a vagabond and a fugitive on the earth. And it will be that anyone who finds me shall kill me.
Gen 4:15  And YHWH said to him, If anyone kills Cain, he shall be avenged sevenfold. And YHWH set a mark on Cain, so that anyone who found him should not kill him.
Gen 4:16  And Cain went out from the presence of YHWH. And he lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
Gen 4:17  And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and he called the name of the city according to the name of his son, Enoch.

The ninth President was William Henry Harrison.

William comes from the Germanic words ‘wil’ meaning desire and ‘helm’ meaning the head, or helmet/protection.

Henry comes from the Germanic words ‘heim’ meaning home and ‘ric’ meaning power or ruler.

Harrison means son of Harry which is from the name Henry/Harold.  Henry again means home power or ruler.  Harold comes from the Old English name Hereweald meaning leader of the army.  ‘Here’ meaning army and ‘weald’ meaning leader or ruler.

Here we see a picture of mankind joining forces to form armies and war against each other as seen in the early chapters of Genesis (Genesis 6:5, 13) and in ancient history.

The tenth President was John Tyler.

John means the grace of Yah as mentioned before.  Tyler is from an English surname meaning the ’tiler of roofs.’  Or it could be said, one who covers the roof of a home which protects the dwellers therein from the elements.  Is this referring to Noah and the building of an ark?

Gen 6:13  And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them. And behold, I will destroy them along with the earth.
Gen 6:14  Make an ark of cyprus timbers for yourself. You shall make rooms in the ark; and you shall cover it with asphalt inside and out.
Gen 6:15  And you shall make it this way: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits.
Gen 6:16  You shall make a window in the ark, and you shall finish it above to a cubit. And you shall set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third stories.
Gen 6:17  And behold, I, even I, am bringing a flood of waters on the earth in order to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life from under the heavens. Everything which is on the earth shall die.

The eleventh President was James K. Polk.

James means a supplanter or heel grabber, the one who wrestles with El and prevails (Genesis 32:28).

His middle name was Knox.  Knox is a Scottish surname which comes from the Old English ‘cnocc’ meaning ’round hill.’

Polk.  Polk is an abbreviated form of the Scottish name Pollack, meaning ‘from the pool or pit’ from the Gaelic word ‘poll’ meaning a ‘pool.’  In German, Polk means ‘great glory’ (Psalm 29:10).

Here we see a picture of the flood where the ark finally sets upon a ’round hill,’ Mt. Ararat (Genesis 8:4).  Where those who prevail with God are brought up from the pit/abyss.


The twelfth President was Zachary Taylor.

Zachary comes from the name Zechariah which comes from the Hebrew name זכריה ‘zekaryah’ which means YHWH remembers.

Gen 8:1  And God remembered Noah and every living thing, and all the cattle which were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided.

Taylor is from an English surname originally denoted as someone who was a tailor which comes from the Latin word ‘taliare’ meaning ‘to cut.’  This is pointing to the covenant that was cut when Noah left the ark.

Gen 9:8  And God spoke to Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
Gen 9:9  Behold! I, even I, am establishing My covenant with you, and with your seed after you,
Gen 9:10  and with every living creature which is with you, among fowl, among cattle, and among every animal of the earth with you, from all that go out from the ark, to every animal of the earth.
Gen 9:11  And I have established My covenant with you, and all flesh shall not be cut off again by the waters of a flood; nor shall there ever again be a flood to destroy the earth.
Gen 9:12  And God said, This is the sign of the covenant which I am about to make between Me and you, and every living soul which is with you, for everlasting generations:
Gen 9:13  I have set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth.


The thirteenth President was Millard Fillmore.

Millard is from an Old English word meaning ‘guardian of the mill.’  A mill is something that grinds, such as the grinding of grain to make flour or the pressing of olives to make wine.  Noah become a man of the earth who made wine (Genesis 9:20)

Fillmore means ‘very famous,’ ‘well-known,’ or ‘renowned.’  Noah is one of the most well known figures in the history of mankind, the man from whence all men descend from and a prominent figure in all religions.  ‘Well-known’ or ‘renowned’ also links to the Hebrew name שם ‘shem’ the son of Noah and inheritor of the blessing (Genesis 9:26).


The fourteenth President was Franklin Pierce.

Franklin comes from the Middle English word ‘frankelin’ meaning a ‘freeman.’

Pierce comes from ‘Piers’ which is a Medieval form of Peter.  Peter comes from the Greek Πετρος ‘petros’ which means a stone.  Peter further traces back to the Hebrew word פטר ‘patar’ which means to give birth or the firstborn breaking free from the womb.

It was during the account of Noah and the wine that Canaan was cursed to be a slave to his brothers (Genesis 9:25), who would by inference be freeman.

It was Peter who proclaimed Yahshua as Messiah, the Son of God in Matthew 16.  It is here that the battle between the righteous and the wicked is proclaimed by the Lord.

Mat 16:15  He said to them, But you, whom do you say Me to be?
Mat 16:16  And answering, Simon Peter said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Mat 16:17  And answering, Jesus said to him, Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but My Father in Heaven.
Mat 16:18  And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My assembly, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against her.

The tents of Shem vs. the tents of Canaan (Genesis 9:27; Psalm 118:15).

The fifteenth President was James Buchanan.

James again meaning a supplanter or ‘heel grabber.’

Buchanan comes from the Gaelic words ‘buth’ meaning house and ‘chanain’ meaning ‘of the canon.’  A canon is a ‘ruler’ from the Latin ‘canonicus’ meaning ‘according to rule.’  This word traces back to the Hebrew word קנה ‘qaneh’ which means a branch or stalk which can be used for measurement.

A canon is also weapon.  This is pointing to the days of Nimrod, the false branch who wars against Yah.

Gen 10:8  And Cush fathered Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one in the land.
Gen 10:9  He was a mighty hunter before YHWH; so it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before YHWH.

This could also be pointing to Genesis 10 and the ‘measuring’ of the nations according to the children of Israel.

Deu 32:8  when the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance; when He separated the sons of Adam, He set up the bounds of the peoples, according to the number of the sons of Israel.

The sixteenth President was Abraham Lincolnclick here.

Abraham means the father of a multitude.

Lincoln is from a surname which was originally from the name of a city in England, derived from Brythonic lindo “lake, pool” and Latin colonia “colony”.

Lincoln traces back to a Brythonic word ‘lindo’ meaning a lake or pool which has the same meaning as the English word ‘linden’ speaking of a tree by rivers of waters.  Lincoln also links back to the Latin word ‘colonia’ from whence comes the English word ‘colony.’

The father or leader of a multitude, waters refers to masses of people ‘colonizing’ the earth (Psalm 65:7; Revelation 17:5).  Again a reference to Genesis 10 and then alluding to the days of Abraham who was promised to be a father of a multitude (Genesis 16:10), who would walk in the commandments likened unto a tree by the rivers of water (Genesis 18:18-19; 26:5; Psalm 1:1).

The seventeenth President was Andrew Johnson.

Andrew means man, as mentioned before.

Johnson means son of John.  Son of the grace of Yah.

Abraham was the one who found grace in the eyes of the Most High, promised to bring forth the Seed.  Literally this is speaking of his son Isaac, a picture of Messiah Yahshua.  Ultimately, this is speaking of the Seed, who is Messiah.

Gal 3:16  But the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his Seed (it does not say, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ). Genesis 3:15; 21:12; 22:18, Rom. 9:6; Heb. 11:18

The eighteenth President was Ulysses S. Grant.

His full name was Hiram Ulysses Grant.

Hiram means ‘exalted brother.’

Ulysses is the Latin form of Odysseus.  Odysseus comes from the Greek οδυσσομαι (odyssomai) meaning to hate.

Grant was nominated by Congressman Thomas L. Hamer for a position at the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, New York. Hamer mistakenly nominated him as “Ulysses S. Grant of Ohio.” At West Point, he adopted this name with a middle initial only. His nickname became “Sam” among army colleagues at the academy, since the initials “U.S.” stood for “Uncle Sam”. The “S”, according to Grant, did not “stand for anything”, though Hamer had used it to abbreviate his mother’s maiden name.

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.  Thorns are linked to hate.

Grant comes from the Norman French word ‘grand’ which means great or large.

Here we see the picture of Jacob and Esau where the elder would serve the younger.

Gen 25:23  And YHWH said to her, Two nations are in your womb; even two peoples shall break from your body. And one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

The relationship between Jacob and Esau is one defined by hate, great hatred (Genesis 27:41; Obadiah 1:10).

The nineteenth President was Rutherford B. Hayes

Rutherford is a surname in Scotland.  The name has shady derivations but is related to the Celtic word ‘ruther’ which means red and a ford, which is shallow place in a river that is crossed over.  It was due to the threat of Esau (who is known as Edom meaning red – Genesis 25:30) that Jacob had to flee Canaan over the river Jordan towards Haran.

Birchard means ‘hardy birches, dweller of the hard birch.’  Birch comes from the English “Birch” with elements of Germanic “ard” meaning “hard” or “hardy”.  This word traces back further to the Hebrew word ברק ‘baraq’ which means bright or white, as in the bark of the birch tree.

The common name birch is derived from an old Germanic root, ‘birka,’ with the Proto-Indo-European root ‘bherəg,’ “white, bright; to shine.”

After fleeing from Esau and traveling towards Padan Aram, Jacob went to live with Laban (Genesis 28:2).  The name Laban in Hebrew means white.

Hayes is based on the Old English haes (brushwood, underwood) and the other based on horg (enclosure) or hege (hedge).  Brushwood was used by the ancients, especially shepherds, to make temporary dwellings.  This was the occupation of Jacob as he served Laban for 20 years (Genesis 31:38-41).

The twentieth President was James A. Garfield.

James again means supplanter, from Hebrew name Jacob.

Abram means exalted father.

Garfield means a ‘triangle field’ or ‘spear field.’  Garfield comes from an English surname that derives from “gar” meaning triangular piece of land and “feld” meaning open space.

Gar in Hebrew {גר} means a stranger.  A foreigner in a strange land.

Psa 39:12  Hear my prayer, O YHWH, and give ear to my cry. Do not be silent at my tears, for I am an alien with You, a pilgrim, as were all my fathers.
Gen 28:20  And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God is with me and keeps me in this way which I am going, and gives to me bread to eat and clothing to wear,
Gen 28:21  and I return in peace to the house of my father, then YHWH shall be my God,
Gen 28:22  and this stone which I have placed as a memorial pillar shall become the house of God; and all which You shall give to me, I will tithe the tenth to You.

James Garfield’s name is referring to the relationship between Jacob and Laban where Laban (the father who supplants) deceives or supplants Jacob on numerous occasions (Genesis 29:23; 31:41).

Shepherds also used their rods as spears in ancient times.  The word for rod/spear in Hebrew is שבט ‘shevet’ which is also the word for a tribe.  It is in a strange land, dwelling with Laban, that the 12 tribes of Israel were born.

The twenty first President was Chester A. Arthur

Chester comes from the Latin ‘castrum’ meaning a fortified place.  The Diminutive is ‘Chet’ which is the eighth Hebrew letter ח.

Alan means ‘little rock’ or perhaps ‘handsome’ in Breton.

Arthur comes from the Celtic words ‘artos’ meaning a ‘bear’ and ‘viros’ meaning a man or ‘rigos’ meaning a king.

Chet is a wall or a fortified place.  Little rock is what Messiah called Peter when he proclaimed Him as Messiah (Matthew 16:18).  On this rock, or fortified place, ‘I will build my church.’  Arthur can mean man/king bear.  The Hebrew word for bear is דוב which means the one who is connected to the door of the tent.  Who is the door of the tent?  Messiah (John 10:9).

This is a picture of Jacob wrestling with Messiah where he matures from a man to a king.  The Hebrew word for bear, דוב, also means sorrow.  When Jacob left Laban and traveled back to the land of Canaan, his heart was filled with sorrow.  This was a picture of Jacob’s trouble in the end of days (Jeremiah 30:7).  It is on the way to meet Esau that Jacob wrestles with a Man (Genesis 32:24-32), and was renamed Israel (Genesis 32:28; Hosea 12:3-5).  Israel means one who rules with God…a king.

The twenty second President was Grover Cleveland.

His full name was Stephen Grover Cleveland.

Stephen comes from the Greek Στεφανος (Stephanos) meaning a crown.

Grover comes from the Old English ‘graf’ which means a grove of trees. In Hebrew a grove is אשרה ‘asherah’ which comes from the root אשר ‘asher’ which means upright.  This is also the root of ישרון ‘yeshurun’ the ‘pet’ name of Israel.

Isa 44:2  So says YHWH, who made you and formed you from the womb. He helps you. Do not fear, My servant Jacob; and you, Jeshurun whom I have elected.

Cleveland comes from the Old English meaning ‘hilly land.’  Hilly land = Israel (Deuteronomy 8:7; 11:11).

The twenty third President was Benjamin Harrison.

Benjamin comes from the Hebrew בנימין which means son of the right hand.

Henry comes from the Germanic words ‘heim’ meaning home and ‘ric’ meaning power or ruler.

Harrison means son of Harry which is from the name Henry/Harold.  Henry again means home power or ruler.  Harold comes from the Old English name Hereweald meaning leader of the army.  ‘Here’ meaning army and ‘weald’ meaning leader or ruler.

This is speaking of the time of Jacob and his children dwelling in the land of Canaan, as strangers and sojourners (Psalm 105:12), yet rulers (Genesis 48:22).  Messiah is the Son who sits at the Right Hand of the Father, who came to earth as a stranger, yet rules over all (John 1:10; Hebrews 1:13).

The twenty fourth President was again Grover Cleveland.

Stephen comes from the Greek Στεφανος (Stephanos) meaning a crown.

Grover comes from the Old English ‘graf’ which means a grove of trees. In Hebrew a grove is אשרה ‘asherah’ which comes from the root אשר ‘asher’ which means upright.  This is also the root of ישרון ‘yeshurun’ the ‘pet’ name of Israel.

Isa 44:2  So says YHWH, who made you and formed you from the womb. He helps you. Do not fear, My servant Jacob; and you, Jeshurun whom I have elected.

Cleveland comes from the Old English meaning ‘hilly land.’  Hilly land = Israel (Deuteronomy 8:7; 11:11).

Does this speak of multiple times where Israel will be king over the Promised Land?  The Hebrew word for repeat is the same as the word for two : שנה ‘shanah.’

The twenty fifth President was William McKinley.

William comes from the Germanic words ‘wil’ meaning desire and ‘helm’ meaning the head, or helmet/protection.

McKinley means son of Kinley which is an Anglicized form of ‘Mac Fhionnlaigh’ meaning ‘son of Fionnlagh.’  Fionlaggh comes from the Gaelic ‘fion’ meaning white or fair and ‘laogh’ meaning warrior.

After Shechem, the son of Hamor defiled Jacob’s daughter Dinah, Simeon and Levi destroyed the people of the land.  Jacob worried that the inhabitants of the land would seek to attack him because of this.  He desired protection ‘william.’

Gen 34:30  And Jacob said to Simeon and to Levi, You have troubled me, to make me stink among those living in the land, among the Canaanites, and among the Perizzites. And I being few in number, and they gathering against me, they will strike me, and I and my house shall be wasted.

Jacob then rose up to go to Bethel, where he was first given the promise of Abraham by YHWH (Genesis 28:11-22).  Jacob tells his children to cleans their clothing (make them white : ‘fion’) and put away the strange gods from their midst. It is here that Elohim puts fear into the hearts of the inhabitants of the land, giving Jacob his desired protection.  The helmet of salvation (1Thessalonians 5:8; Genesis 49:18).

Gen 35:1  And God said to Jacob, Rise up, go to Bethel and live there. And make an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you fled before your brother Esau.
Gen 35:2  And Jacob said to his house, and to all those with him, Put away the strange gods in your midst, and purify yourselves, and change your clothing.
Gen 35:3  And let us rise up and go up to Bethel. And I will make an altar there to God, who answered me in the day of my distress. And He was with me in the way in which I went.
Gen 35:4  And they gave all the strange gods in their hand to Jacob, and the earrings which were in their ears. And Jacob hid them under the oak which was near Shechem.
Gen 35:5  And they pulled up stakes. And the terror of God was on the cities all around them, and they did not pursue the sons of Jacob.

The twenty sixth President was Theodore Roosevelt.

Theodore comes from the Greek name Θεοδωρος (Theodoros) which means ‘gift of God.’  θεος (theos) “god” and δωρον (doron) “gift”.

Roosevelt means a rose field.  This points to the ‘rose’ of Sharon, who is Messiah.

Son 2:1  I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.
Son 2:2  As a lily among thorns, so is My love among the daughters.
Son 2:3  As the apple among the trees of the forest, so is my Beloved among the sons. I delighted in His shadow, and I sat down; and His fruit was sweet to my taste.
Son 2:4  He brought me to the house of wine, and His banner over me was love.

Jacob’s desire for a helmet of salvation is what kept him safe in the land, under the shadow of the wings of the Most High.

Gen 49:18  I have waited for your salvation, O YHWH.

The twenty seventh President was William Howard Taft

William comes from the Germanic words ‘wil’ meaning desire and ‘helm’ meaning the head, or helmet/protection.

Howard derives from several sources.  The Anglo-Norman ‘Huard’ which comes from the Germanic name ‘Hughard.’  Hughard comes from ‘hug’ meaning heart or mind and ‘hard’ meaning brave.

The Anglo Scandinavian name ‘Haward’ from the Old Norse ‘Havardr.’  Havardr comes from ‘ha’ meaning high and ‘varor’ meaning guardian or defender.

Also the Middle English ‘ewehirde’ which means a ‘ewe herder’ or shepherd.

Taft is of Old French origin meaning ‘homestead.’  It could also trace to an Old English word meaning ‘marsh or river.’

Here we see a picture of YHWH answering Jacob’s desire for His Salvation (ישועה).  This hope in Him, while dwelling in the Promised Land is associated with a braveheart (Deuteronomy 3:28; 31:6-7, 23; Joshua 1:6-9; 10:25).  Bravery in Hebrew is אמץ ‘amatz’ which means strength.  This is associated with putting on the helmet of salvation (1 Corinthians 16:13; Ephesians 6:10-18).  This hope (Isaiah 40:31) and faith in the Most High as the guardian and defender of the sheep is personified in Psalm 23.

Psa 23:1  A Psalm of David. YHWH is my shepherd; I shall not lack.
Psa 23:2  He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me to waters of rest;
Psa 23:3  He restores my soul; He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Psa 23:4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Psa 23:5  You prepare a table for me before ones vexing me; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Psa 23:6  Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of YHWH for as long as my days.

The twenty eighth President was Woodrow Wilson.

His full name was Thomas Woodrow Wilson.

Thomas comes from the Aramaic word תָּאוֹמָא (Ta’oma’) meaning a twin but also full.

Woodrow means a ‘row of houses by a wood.’  In Hebrew, the word for woods is יער ‘ya’ar’ which is a place of darkness and is a cognate of the Hebrew word for city עיר.

Wilson means son of William.  William comes from the Germanic words ‘wil’ meaning desire and ‘helm’ meaning the head, or helmet/protection.

This reiterates Psalm 23 where the Good Shepherd fills our cup to overflowing even in the midst of darkness.  Woodrow Wilson’s name is also a picture of Israel going down into Egypt, the ‘dark city,’ in order to be ‘protected’ or fed during the famine.  Thomas means a twin but also ‘full.’

The twenty ninth President was Warren G. Harding.

Warren comes from a Norman French word ‘warrene’ meaning an animal enclosure. This points to the land of Goshen, where shepherds and sheep dwelt (Genesis 45:10; 46:28; 47:27).

Gamaliel means the ‘benefit or reward of God.’

Gen 46:2  And God said to Israel in visions of the night, and He spoke, Jacob! Jacob! And he answered, Behold me.
Gen 46:3  And He said, I am God, the God of your fathers. Do not fear to go down into Egypt, for I will make of you a great nation there.

Gen 47:5  And Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, Your father and your brothers have come in to you.
Gen 47:6  The land of Egypt is before you; cause your father and your brothers to live in the best of the land; let them live in the land of Goshen. And if you know men of ability among them, make them chiefs of livestock over what is mine.

Gen 47:27  And Israel lived in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen. And they owned in it, and were fruitful, and multiplied exceedingly.

Harding comes from the Old English name ‘Heard’ which mean brave or hardy.

The thirtieth President was Calvin Coolidge.

His full name was John Calvin Coolidge.

John means the grace of Yah.

Calvin comes from the French name ‘Chauvin’ which derives from ‘chauve’ meaning bald.  The Hebrew word for bald, ריק ‘riyq’ also means bare.

Coolidge is from an Old English word ‘coll’ meaning a rocky ridge or escarpment.  This is speaking of a division of land.  Here we see a picture of Israel finding grace from YHWH in the midst of famine or barreness, dwelling in Egypt in the land of Goshen which was separated from the Egyptians.

Gen 46:34  You shall say, Your servants have been men of livestock from our youth even until now, both we and our fathers. This is so that you may live in the land of Goshen. For the abomination of Egypt is every shepherd of flocks.

The thirty first President was Herbert Hoover.

Herbert is a Germanic name which derives from ‘hari’ meaning army and ‘beraht’ meaning bright.

Clark comes from the word ‘cleric’ which means a ‘scribe’ from the Old English ‘clerec’ which originally meant a priest.

An army of those who bear the Word.

Psa 68:11  YHWH gave the Word; the bearers of it were a great army.

Hoover comes from the German name Huber meaning a ‘large measure of land.’  Here we see Israel, the ‘bright army’ of ‘scribes’ or carriers of the Word, dwelling in a large measure of land in Egypt.


The thirty second President was Franklin D. Roosevelt

Franklin comes from the Middle English word ‘frankelin’ meaning a ‘freeman.’

Delano is from a French surname ‘De la Noye’ indicating the person was from a place called La Noue.  La Noue is from the Gaelic word meaning a ‘wetland, or swamp.’

Goshen corresponded to Wady-’t-Tumeylat.  Wadi Tumilat is a part of the Nile Delta which is one of the world’s largest river deltas.

Roosevelt means a rose field.  In the above picture, the land of Goshen is green, lush land to at the North of Egypt.  The Nile delta pictured resembles a flower or a rose.

The thirty third President was Harry S. Truman.

Harry is a diminuitive of both Henry and Harold.   Henry means home power or ruler.  Harold comes from the Old English name Hereweald meaning leader of the army.  ‘Here’ meaning army and ‘weald’ meaning leader or ruler.

S is his middle name, chosen to please both grandfathers. Anderson Shipp Truman and Solomon Young.  Shipp is an occupational name of a boatbuilder or mariner.  Solomon means peaceful in Hebrew.

As mentioned previously, 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 and is related to hate as mentioned above.

Truman means a ‘trusty man’ in Middle English.

This is referring to Moses (Hebrews 3:2, 5), who was raised up during the days of the Pharaoh ‘who knew not Joseph,’ who hated Israel.  The faithful one in Yah’s house, whose life began on a boat (Exodus 2:3), destined to bring his people peace from the bondage of Pharaoh (Exodus 18:23; Acts 7:35).


The thirty fourth President was Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Dwight is an English surname which derives from the Medieval feminine name ‘Diot,’ a diminuitive of Dionysia, the feminine form of Dionysius.  Dionysisu is a combination of the Greek Διος (Dios) meaning ‘Zeus’ and Νυσα (Nysa) which was a ‘legendary mountain.’  Zeus is actually a name which derives from Godclick here.The legendary mountain of God.  This is where Moses was called.

Exo 3:1  And Moses was feeding the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock behind the wilderness and came to the mountain of God, to Horeb.

David means the beloved one.  On a deeper level, David comes from דד which means a bosom, linked to the concept of being under the shadow of His wingsclick here.  Again this points to Mt. Sinai (Exodus 19:4,17).

His nickname was ‘Ike.’  Ike is a diminuitive of Isaac which means laughter.  This is also referring to the redemption of Israel.

Psa 126:1  A Song of Ascents. When YHWH turned back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream.
Psa 126:2  Then our mouth was full of laughter, and our tongue with joyful shouting; then they said among the nations, YHWH will work great things with these.

Eisenhower comes from the German name ‘Eisenhauer’ which means iron cutter or iron worker.  Israel being redeemed from Egypt is associated with iron working.

Deu 4:20  And YHWH has taken you, and has brought you forth out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be a people to Him, an inheritance, as it is this day.

Jer 11:4  which I commanded your fathers in the day I brought them out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey My voice and do them according to all that I command you, so that you shall be My people, and I will be your God;

The thirty fifth President was John F. Kennedy.

John means the grace of Yah.

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.  Recall that in Hebrew, the rod of the shepherd is also his ‘spear.’  Moses was sent with the Rod of Elohim (Exodus 4:20) to deliver Israel from Pharaoh.

Kennedy is the Anglicized form of ‘Ó Cinnéidigh’ meaning descendant of Cennetig.  Cennetig means ‘armoured head.’  An armored head is pointing back to the concept mentioned above of the ‘helmet of salvation.’

Isa 59:16  And He saw that there was no man, and He was astonished that there was no intercessor. And His own arm saved for Him; and His righteousness sustained Him.
Isa 59:17  For He put on righteousness like armor, and a helmet of salvation on His head. And He put on robes of vengeance as clothing; and He put on zeal like a mantle.

The Arm of YHWH is the Angel of His Presence

Isa 63:9  In all their affliction, He was not a foe; and the Angel of his Face saved them. In His love and in His pity He redeemed them. And He bore them up, and lifted them up all the days of old.
Act 7:35  This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
Act 7:36  He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
Act 7:37  This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
Act 7:38  This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:
Deu 33:2  And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

Isa 63:5  And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.
Isa 63:8  For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.
Isa 63:9  In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
Psa 44:3  For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
Jdg 2:1  And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.
Exo 15:6  Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

The thirty sixth President was Lyndon B. Johnson.

Lyndon comes from the English surname derived from a place meaning ‘lime tree hill’ in Old English.  The linden or lime tree is a picture of the vine of Israel (Isaiah 6:13).

Baines has three possible origins.   The first is from the Gaelic ‘ban’ meaning fair or white.  The second is from the Old English ‘ban’ meaning a bone.  The third is from the Old French ‘bain’ meaning a bath.

Johnson means son of John, or grace/camp of Yah.

The vine planted in the promised land.  His fair bride, bone of His bones, washed from their iniquities.  The camp of Yah.


The thirty seventh President was Richard Nixon.

Richard means brave power from the Germanic words ‘ric’ meaning ruler or power and ‘hard’ meaning brave.

Milhous means miller’s house.  A miller is one who operates a machine to grind grain in order to produce flour for bread.

Nixon means son of Nicholas.  Nicholas is from the Greek name Νικολαος (Nikolaos) which means ‘victory of the people.  From the Greek νικη (nike) “victory” and λαος (laos) “people”.

Here we see the victory of the people of Israel, called to be priests/rulers of the nations (Exodus 19:6).  Whose victory is intimately linked to bread. The manna given in the wilderness by the Hand of the Most High and the feast of Unleavened Bread, the festival of our freedom are reminders of this victory.

Deu 8:7  For YHWH your God brings you into a good land, a land of streams of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills,
Deu 8:8  a land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey,
Deu 8:9  a land in which you shall eat bread without want; you shall not lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron; and you shall dig copper out of its mountains.
Deu 8:10  And you shall eat and be satisfied; and you shall bless YHWH your God in the good land which He has given you.   

The thirty eighth President was Gerald Ford.

Gerald is from the Germanic name meaning ‘rule of the spear.’  From ‘ger’ meaning spear and ‘wald’ meaning rule.  Again, spear and rod are synonymous in Hebrew.  Ruling over the nations is linked to the rod (Psalm 2:9; Revelation 2:27; 12:5; 19:15).

Rudolph is from a Germanic name ‘Hrodulf’ which is a combinatino of ‘hrod’ meaning fame and ‘wulf’ meaning a wolf.

Ford comes from a shallow place where a river or stream may be crossed.

Here we see Israel set up as rulers/priests to the nations, yet ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’ (Matthew 7:15; Acts 20:29) entered their midst causing them to ‘cross over the river’ back into the ways of Babylon (Joshua 24:2).

Gerald Ford was born Leslie Lynch King Jr.

Leslie comes from the Gaelic ‘leas celyn’ meaning a garden of holly.  Holly is a picture of sun god worship, associated with the ivy of Bacchus/Saturn of which Israel went ‘a whoring’ after (Amos; 5:26; Acts 7:43).

Lynch is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic ‘Ó Loingsigh’ meaning a descendant of Loingseach.  Loingseach means a ‘long ship’ referring to a mariner.  In English, it is a topographic name for someone who lived on a slope or hillside from the Old English ‘hlinc.’  To lynch is to hang someone as a punishment for breaking the law.  Here we see a picture of backslidden Israel (Jeremiah 7:23-24; Hosea 4:16), traversing on the waters of Babylon (Revelation 17:1).

King comes from the Old English ‘cyning’ meaning a king.  The desire of Israel to have a king over them was the fruit of their rebellion.

1Sa 8:5  And they said to him, Behold, you have become old, and your sons have not walked in your ways. Now appoint a king to us, to judge us, like all the nations.
1Sa 8:6  And the thing was evil in Samuel’s eyes when they said, Give to us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed to YHWH.
1Sa 8:7  And YHWH said to Samuel, Listen to the voice of the people, to all that they say to you. For they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from reigning over them.
1Sa 8:8  According to all the works that they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt, even to this day, when they forsook Me and served other gods, so they are also doing to you.

1Sa 10:19  But today you have rejected your God who Himself is your deliverer from all your evils and your distresses; yet you say to Him, But set a king over us! And now present yourselves before the face of YHWH, by your tribes and by your families.

The thirty ninth President was Jimmy Carter.

James is the English form of the Latin ‘Iacomus’ from the Greek Ιακωβος (Iakobos) which comes from the Hebrew יעקב ‘yaakov’ or Jacob.

Earl comes from the Old English ‘eorl’ meaning a nobleman or warrior.

Carter is from an English surname meaning one who uses a cart.  A cart is a vehicle designed for transport.

Here we see a warrior or nobleman of Jacob associated with a cart.  The only time the word ‘cart’ is used in Scripture is in reference to the cart used to transport the ark of the covenant back from the Philistines during the days of David (1Samuel 6:7-14; 2 Samuel 6:3; 1 Chronicles 13:7).  The noble warrior king of Israel.

The fortieth President was Ronald Reagan.

Ronald is the Scottish form of ‘Ragnvaldr’ which is an Old Norse name composed of the elements regin “advice, counsel” and valdr “ruler”.

Wilson is from an English surname meaning “son of William”.  William is from the Germanic name Willahelm, which was composed of the elements wil “will, desire” and helm “helmet, protection”.

Here we see a picture of Solomon, the King of wise counsel (1 Kings 4:29-34), who ruled during the days of peace/protection (1 Kings 4:24).

Reagan from an Irish surname ‘Ó Ríagáin’ meaning a descendant of ‘Riagan.’  Riagan is  derived from ríodhgach meaning a ‘little king.’

It was the son of Solomon, Rehoboam, who forsook the counsel of the wise men of his father (1 Kings 12:8-20; 2 Chronicles 10:6-16) and led to him becoming a ‘little king’ over two tribes of Israel, while Jeroboam was given ten (1 Kings 11:35).


The forty first President was George H.W. Bush.

George comes from the Greek word γεωργος (georgos) meaning a farmer or earthworker.

Herbert comes from the Germanic words ‘hari’ meaning army and ‘beraht’ meaning bright.

Walker is an English surname which referred to the medieval occupation of a walker, also known as a fuller.  Walkers would tread on wet, unprocessed wool in order to clean and thicken it.  The word ultimately derives from Old English wealcan “to walk”.

In the Scriptures, the concept of the fuller is associated with the exile of Israel due to their rebellion.  Here we see in George HW Bush’s name, the story of Israel during the days of the Kings.  The ‘bright army’ of Israel, whose occupation was farmers (Joel 3:10) who rebelled against the Most High and His Word, ultimately leading to their exile from the land (Deuteronomy 29:28).  The Assyrian army advanced on Jerusalem from the North (Isaiah 10:28-32), the only accessible side for an amry.  This was the place of the ‘fuller’s field’ (Isaiah 7:3; 36:2).

Bush is an from an Old English word ‘busc’ which means a bush.

In Hebrew בוש ‘bush’ means shame and is the origin of the English word for bush.  A bush is used to mark one’s land as well as hide one’s home for privacy.  The English word ‘ambush’ comes from this same concept.

Hos 10:6  It shall also be carried to Assyria, a present to King Jareb. Ephraim shall receive shame, and Israel shall be ashamed of his own counsel.


The forty second President was Bill Clinton.

Bill is a diminuitive of William from the Germanic name Willahelm, which was composed of the elements wil “will, desire” and helm “helmet, protection”.

Jefferson is from the Medieval Geoffrey which is from a French form of a Germanic name.  The first part is from either ‘gawia’ meaning territory, ‘walah’ meaning stranger or ‘gisil’ meaning hostage and the second part is from ‘frid’ meaning peace.

Here we see Israel, who desired peace but would not walk in His ways in order to attain it (Isaiah 48:18-22; Deuteronomy 32:1-43; Psalm 81:10-15; Luke 19:41-42).  Hence, a stranger entered into their territory and took them hostage.

Bill Clinton’s original last name was Blythe comes from an Old English surname meaning cheerful.  Here we see that even in exile, Israel is given hope.

Zec 8:19  So says YHWH of Hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall become for joy and gladness and cheerful feasts to the house of Judah. Therefore, love truth and peace.
Isa 14:24  YHWH of Hosts has sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so it shall be; and as I have purposed, it shall rise up;
Isa 14:25  to break Assyria in My land, and trample him on My mountains. Then his yoke shall depart from them, and his burden shall depart from his shoulders.
Isa 10:21  The remnant shall return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.
Isa 10:22  For though Your people Israel is like the sand of the sea, only a remnant of it shall return; a decisive end, overflowing with righteousness.
Isa 10:23  For the Lord YHWH of Hosts is making a full end, even ordained, in the midst of all the land.
Isa 10:24  So the Lord YHWH of Hosts says this: Oh My people who dwell in Zion, do not fear Assyria. He shall strike you with the rod, and he shall lift up his staff against you in the way of Egypt.
Isa 10:25  But yet a little while, and the fury is finished; and My anger shall be over their destruction.
Isa 10:26  And YHWH of Hosts shall stir up a whip on him, according to the striking of Midian at the rock Oreb; and as His rod was on the sea, and He lifted it up in the way of Egypt.
Isa 10:27  And it shall be in that day, his burden shall turn away from on your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck; and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

Clinton is from a surname which was originally from an Old English place name meaning “settlement on the River Glyme”. The River Glyme is a river in Oxfordshire, England. It is a tributary of the River Evenlode. The river’s name is derived from the Brythonic for “bright stream”.

A ‘bright stream’ links to the Hebrew concept of ‘breaking up your fallow ground.’  The Hebrew word for light ניר ‘niyr’ is a picture of a farmer breaking up the fallow ground which causes the water beneath to reflect the light of the sun.

Jer 4:1  If you will return, O Israel, says YHWH, return to Me. And if you will turn away from your hateful idols out of My face and will not waver,
Jer 4:2  and you will swear, As YHWH lives, in truth, in justice, and in righteousness; even the nations shall bless themselves in Him, and in Him they will glory.
Jer 4:3  For so says YHWH to the men of Judah and to Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and do not sow to the thorns.
Jer 4:4  Circumcise yourselves to YHWH, and take away the foreskin of your heart, O men of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, that My fury not go forth like fire and burn, so that no one can put it out; because of the evil of your doings.
Jer 4:5  Declare in Judah, and make it heard in Jerusalem, and say, Blow the ram’s horn in the land. Cry, fulfill and say, Assemble yourselves and go into the fortified cities.
Jer 4:6  Lift up a banner toward Zion. Flee for safety and do not wait. For I will bring evil from the north and a great ruin.
Jer 4:7  The lion has come up from his thicket, and a destroyer of nations has set out. He has left his place to make your land a waste. Your cities will fall into ruins without one living in them.

Hos 10:9  O Israel, you have sinned from the days of Gibeah. There they stood. The battle against the sons of iniquity did not overtake them in Gibeah.
Hos 10:10  When I desire, I shall bind them; and the peoples shall be gathered against them, when they bind themselves to their two perversities.
Hos 10:11  And Ephraim is a trained heifer, loving to tread out. But I passed over on the goodness of her neck; I will make Ephraim to ride; Judah shall plow; Jacob shall break clods for him.
Hos 10:12  Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap as kindness. Break up your fallow ground. For it is time to seek YHWH, until He comes and rains righteousness on you.
Hos 10:13  You have plowed wickedness; you have reaped iniquity. You have eaten the fruit of lies because you trusted in your way, in the multitude of your mighty men.
Hos 10:14  And an uproar shall rise up among your peoples. And all your strongholds shall be spoiled, as the ruin of Beth-arbel in the day of battle. The mother was dashed in pieces on her sons.
Hos 10:15  So He does to you, Bethel, because of your great evil. In the dawn, the king of Israel shall be completely cut off.

The forty third President was George W. Bush.

George comes from the Greek word γεωργος (georgos) meaning a farmer or earthworker.

Walker is an English surname which referred to the medieval occupation of a walker, also known as a fuller.  Walkers would tread on wet, unprocessed wool in order to clean and thicken it.  The word ultimately derives from Old English wealcan “to walk”.

The name of George W. Bush’s father spoke of the judgment that would come upon Israel due to their rebellion.  Bush Jr.’s name speaks of the promise of redemption.  George means one who works in the ground, or plants seed.  Israel sowed wickedness and reaped the fruits thereof (Hosea 10:13) which brought shame upon them.  Clinton’s name speaks of breaking up the fallow ground so that righteousness might be sown (Hosea 10:12) that YHWH might deliver Israel and bring shame to their enemies.

Mal 3:1  Behold, I am sending My messenger, and He will clear the way before Me. And the Lord whom you are seeking shall suddenly come to His temple, even the Angel of the Covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He comes, says YHWH of Hosts.
Mal 3:2  But who can endure the day of His coming? And who will stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fuller’s soap.
Mal 3:3  And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and He shall purify the sons of Levi and purge them like gold and like silver, that they may be presenters of a grain offering in righteousness to YHWH.

Bush is an from an Old English word ‘busc’ which means a bush.  As mentioned above, in Hebrew בוש ‘bush’ means shame and is the origin of the English word for bush.  A bush is used to mark one’s land as well as hide one’s home for privacy. Israel bore their shame and was judged with exile, the promise of redemption is associated with the nations being judged and their shame being discovered.

Eze 36:6  So prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains and to the hills, to the ravines and to the valleys, So says the Lord YHWH: Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and in My fury, because you have borne the shame of the nations.
Eze 36:7  So the Lord YHWH says this: I have lifted up My hand, surely the nations that surround you, they shall bear their shame.
Eze 36:8  But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall put out your branches and your fruit, you shall bear for My people Israel. For they are drawing near to come.
Eze 36:9  For behold, I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown.
Eze 36:10  And I will multiply men on you, all the house of Israel, all of it. And the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built.
Eze 36:11  And I will multiply men on you, and beast, and they will increase and be fruitful. And I will make you dwell as you formerly were, and I will do better than at your beginnings. And you shall know that I am YHWH.
Eze 36:12  Yea, I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel; and they shall possess you, and you will be an inheritance to them and will not any more increase their bereavement.
Eze 36:13  So says the Lord YHWH: Because they said to you, You are a devourer of men, and you have bereaved your nations;
Eze 36:14  so you shall no longer devour men, and you shall not make your nations fall any more, declares the Lord YHWH.
Eze 36:15  And I will not let you bear the shame of the nations any longer, and you shall not bear the disgrace of the peoples any more, and you shall not cause your nations to fall any more, declares the Lord YHWH.
Eze 36:16  And the Word of YHWH was to me, saying,
Eze 36:17  Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt on their land, they even defiled it by their ways and by their doings. As the defilement of woman’s impurity, their way was before Me.
Eze 36:18  So I poured out My fury on them, because of the blood that they had poured out on the land, and for their idols by which they defiled it.
Eze 36:19  And I scattered them among the nations, and they were sown among the lands; I judged them by their way and by their doings.
Eze 36:20  And when they entered into the nations, there where they went, they even profaned My holy name, by saying to them, These are the people of YHWH, and they are gone out of His land.
Eze 36:21  But I had pity for My holy name which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations, there where they went.
Eze 36:22  Therefore, say to the house of Israel, So says the Lord YHWH: I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but only for My holy name which you profaned among the nations, there where you went.
Eze 36:23  And I will sanctify My great name which was profaned among the nations, which you profaned among them. And the nations shall know that I am YHWH, declares the Lord YHWH, when I am sanctified in you in their eyes.
Eze 36:24  For I will take you from the nations and gather you out of all the lands and bring you into your land.
Eze 36:25  Then I will sprinkle clean waters on you, and you shall be clean. I will cleanse you from all your defilement and from all your idols.
Eze 36:26  And I will also give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you. And I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give to you a heart of flesh.
Eze 36:27  And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments and do them.
Eze 36:28  And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers. And you shall be a people to Me, and I will be God to you.
Eze 36:29  I will also save you from all your defilements, and I will call for grain and increase it, and I will not put a famine on you.
Eze 36:30  And I will multiply the fruit of the tree and the produce of the field, in order that you will not any more receive the disgrace of famine among the nations.
Eze 36:31  And you will remember your evil ways and your doings that were not good, and you will despise yourselves in your own eyes for your iniquities and for your abominations.
Eze 36:32  Let it be known to you that I am not doing this for your sake, states the Lord YHWH. Be ashamed and confounded for your ways, O house of Israel.
Eze 36:33  So says the Lord YHWH: In the day I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built.
Eze 36:34  And the desolated land shall be cultivated, rather than being a ruin in the eyes of all passing by.
Eze 36:35  And they shall say, This land that was desolated has become like the garden of Eden. And the wasted and desolated and razed cities are fortified and inhabited.
Eze 36:36  And the nations left all around you shall know that I, YHWH, built the razed places and planted that which was desolated. I, YHWH have spoken it and will do it.
Eze 36:37  So says the Lord YHWH: Yet for this I will be sought by the house of Israel, to work for them. I will increase them with men like a flock.
Eze 36:38  Like a holy flock, like the flock of Jerusalem in her appointed feasts, so the wasted cities shall be filled with flocks of men. And they shall know that I am YHWH.

Isa 61:1  The Spirit of the Lord YHWH is on Me, because YHWH has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the meek. He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to captives, and complete opening to the bound ones;
Isa 61:2  to proclaim the acceptable year of YHWH, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;
Isa 61:3  to appoint to those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of the spirit of infirmity, so that one calls them trees of righteousness, the planting of YHWH, in order to beautify Himself.
Isa 61:4  And they shall build old ruins; they shall raise up former desolations; and they shall restore the waste cities, ruins of generations and generations.
Isa 61:5  And foreigners shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of strangers shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
Isa 61:6  But you shall be called, Priests of YHWH; it will be said of you, Ministers of our God. You shall eat the wealth of the nations, and you shall revel in their glory.
Isa 61:7  Instead of your shame and disgrace, double. They rejoice in their portion; for they shall possess a second time in their land; everlasting joy shall be theirs.
Isa 61:8  For I, YHWH, love judgment, hating plunder in burnt offering. And I will give their work in truth; and I will cut an everlasting covenant for them.
Isa 61:9  And their seed shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed that YHWH has blessed.
Isa 61:10  Rejoicing I will rejoice in YHWH. My soul shall be joyful in my God. For He clothed me with garments of salvation; He put on me the robe of righteousness, even as a bridegroom dons as a priest his head-dress, and as a bride wears her ornaments.
Isa 61:11  For as the earth comes out with her buds, and as a garden causes that which is sown to grow, so the Lord YHWH will make righteousness and praise to grow before all the nations.

The forty fourth President is Barack Obama.

Barack means blessing or lightning depending upon spelling in Hebrew.  From the theme of the names of the Presidents, it would seem that the correct rendering would be ברך ‘barack’ meaning blessing.

1Ti 6:15  who in His own time will reveal the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
Mar 14:61  But He was silent and answered nothing. Again the high priest questioned Him, and said to Him, Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?

Hussein comes from the Arabic حسين ‘Husayn’ a diminuitive of ‘Hasan.’  حسن ‘Hasan’ means handsome from the Arabic حسن (hasuna) meaning to be beautiful or good.

Son 6:3  I am my Beloved’s, and my Beloved is mine. He feeds among the lilies.
Son 6:4  O My love, you are as beautiful as Tirzah, as lovely as Jerusalem, awesome as bannered armies.

Isa 4:2  In that day the Branch of YHWH will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth for pride and for glory for the survivors of Israel.

Rom 10:15  And how may they preach if they are not sent? Even as it has been written, “How beautiful” “the feet of those preaching the gospel of peace, of those preaching the gospel of good things.” Isa. 52:7
Rom 10:16  But not all obeyed the gospel, for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” Isa. 53:1

Obama is of African origin meaning to be crooked or bent.  It is a Luo word ‘bam’ which means crooked or bent down with the prefix ‘O’ which means he.  He is bent down.

In Hebrew the word בם is speaking of something lifted up.  Bent down, lifted up…

Php 2:5  For think this within you, which mind was also in Christ Jesus,
Php 2:6  who subsisting in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God,
Php 2:7  but emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, having become in the likeness of men
Php 2:8  and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, having become obedient until death, even the death of a cross.
Php 2:9  Because of this also God highly exalted Him and gave Him a name above every name,
Php 2:10  that at the name of Jesus “every knee should bow,” of heavenly ones, and earthly ones, and ones under the earth,
Php 2:11  and “every tongue should confess” that Jesus Christ is “Lord,” to the glory of God the Father. Isa. 45:23

This brings us to the current days, the time period in the Bible of the Gospels.  I have looked up the name meanings of the Vice Presidentsclick here and they fit perfectly into this storyline that the Most High is giving man through the meanings of the names of the leaders of this country.  Furthermore, the names of the Speakers of the House and the Chief Justices fit perfectly into this storyline as well!

All 3 branches point to the Word…Isa 33:22  For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.

The above information is the basis for the “Presidents Code” which goes into much more detail on how American history is a parable of the Word of God.  For more information see:

The Presidents Code
The Presidents Code

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.

Additionally, the wars which have occurred, the changes in the monetary system, the ‘party systems’ and political realignments which have occurred in this country’s history follow this ‘code’ as well.
Furthermore, the name meanings of the heads of the other two branches of government line up with perfect precision to the name meanings of the Presidents they serve with. The Vice Presidents, Speakers of the House, Chief Justices, President Pro Tempores and more recently the Senate and House Majority Leaders as well as the Chiefs of Staffs all fit into this code with such exactness that it cannot be denied that the Hand of the Creator is steering the course of this nation.
