Presidents Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Monroe

 That our nation’s leaders and destiny are under the watchful eye of God Almighty and His special Providence was Divinely and infallibly revealed to us, as Daniel Webster said (see), when John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the second and third Presidents (the two Founding Fathers most responsible for the writing and ratification of the Declaration of Independence) died just hours apart in 1826 on the 50th anniversary of Independence Day-the historic, world-changing day that they founded. What has gone unnoticed in this amazing event is the uncanny numerical signs given to us that day especially in the correspondence between the date July 4, 1776, when Congress adopted the Declaration, and the two principle Founder’s (Jefferson and Adams) near simultaneous deaths. What I mean is this:

When the single digits of the date 7-4-1776 are added together it gives us (as you shall see) the profoundly significant number 32, which is the number that signifies America, hence:



1459931=32 (see notes)

 Mere chaotic coincidence? If that was all, perhaps. But there is more, much more. Read on and judge for yourself:

John Adams our 2nd President and Jefferson our 3rd died in reverse order that July 4th day giving us the number 32. In other words, as 3 precedes 2 in the number 32 Jefferson, the greater and more important of the two Founders, was the first to leave this world.

As if foreshadowing the order of their deaths the friendship of Jefferson and Adams began when they first met at the Second Continental Congress in May 1775. Amazingly at the time Jefferson (born April 13, 1743) was 32 years old.

Now as 32 is a number symbolic of the day this great country was founded and is the numerical value of the name America, and as it signifies the order of Jefferson’s and Adams’ death on a July 4th date, remarkably and amazingly the exact number of words comprising the Declaration of Independence (which the 3rd and 2nd Presidents wrote and defended) is 1322, with the number 32 at its center.

Moreover, as the number 32 by addition is reducible to the number 5 (3+2=5) incredibly Jefferson and Adams died approximately 5 hours apart, the one dying around 1 pm and the other at 6:20 pm. Also incredible is that 1 pm to 6:20 pm equals 320 minutes (32 10x). And just as uncanny is the fact Jefferson and Adams died on the 50th celebration of July 4th-50 being a multiple of 5 10x.

Now in keeping with this remarkable pattern of fives (and fives multiples and variations) the date July 4, 1776 fell on a Thursday, the 5th day of the week. Moreover, July 4, 1826, the day Jefferson and Adams died, was the 185th day of the year. Not does 185 end in 5and is divisible by 5 but it’s a variant of the number 5 because it is reducible to 5, hence: 1+8+5=14, 1+4=5.

Furthermore, as mentioned above, Jefferson and Adams first met and became friends at the Second Continental Congress held in May 1775 when Jefferson was 32 years old. May is the 5th month of the year.

Also fascinating is that the only two future Presidents to sign the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams (they were two of the 5 key Founders*), were members of the Committee of FIVE that was appointed to draft the document. The other three members were Ben Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston.

*The other three were Washington, Franklin and Madison.

Moreover, the Declaration that Jefferson and Adams composed (the later playing a minor role) is made up of 5 distinct parts: the introduction, the preamble, the body, which can be divided into two sections, and the conclusion.

Other signs of what I believe is God’s supernatural presence and signature effect in the founding of our country, and in the astonishing deaths of Jefferson and Adams, are as follows:

Shortly before he expired a sick and ailing John Adams strangely uttered the mysterious words “Thomas Jefferson survives.” Could it be that Adams’ had a vision of Jefferson’s disembodied spirit and that it seemed so life like and real to him that he spoke these words believing he had seen him in the flesh? Whatever, these words are part of the mystery of Adams’ and Jefferson’s “coincidental” deaths in more ways than one. For in keeping with the significant numbers 3 and 2 Adams’ statement is composed of 23 letters (32 reversed) which exactly corresponds with the numeric value of Jefferson’s birth date, hence:


As Jefferson and Adam’s were the great pen and voice of the Revolution, the one writing the Declaration of Independence and the other defending it with his eloquence, concealed in the date July 4, 1776 is the all important year 1787 when the Constitution was completed and adopted by the 13 states and America became a Constitutional Republic, hence

1776 + 4 + 7 = 1787*

Remarkably, the numbers in the historic year 1787 collapse into the number 23, which is further reducible to 5 hence:

1+7+8+7=23 ,2+3=5

*There were exactly 74 delegates to the Constitutional Convention a number signifying  the month (7) and day (4) of our founding.

It is also important to note that Jefferson and Adams were the 18th and 48th signers of the Declaration respectively. The multiplication of these two numbers gives us a total that’s a multiple of 32, hence:

18x48=864 or 32x27


James Monroe was the third and last President to die on July 4th . What is remarkable about this, and a sign that his death was Providentially arranged and designed like Jefferson’s and Adams’, is that while Adams and Jefferson were the 2nd and 3rd Presidents, numbers that total 5, Monroe himself was the 5th President-2 removed from Jefferson and 3 from Adams. Incredibly, the 5th President died in 1831, exactly 5 years to the date of Jefferson’s and Adams’ deaths on the 55th anniversary of Independence Day-55 is a multiple of 5 11x.

It is fascinating to note that Monroe the Jeffersonian (the student and lifelong friend of Jefferson) was succeeded to the presidency by John Quincy Adams, John Adams’ son. In other words, just as Thomas Jefferson succeeded John Adams to the presidency an Adams succeeded a Jeffersonian President*.

*Just as the addition of 2 (signifying John Adams’ presidency) and 3 (signifying Jefferson’s presidency) equals 5 (signifying Monroe’s presidency), so the multiplying of 2 and 3 equals 6 the presidency number of John Quincy Adams.

St. Augustine, following the ancient Greeks who believed that numbers (the basis of mathematics) rule the world, wrote that “Numbers are a universal language given to us by God for the confirmation of truth”-and, I might add, to justify His ways to us in this mathematically constructed, ordered and harmoniously designed universe. What was Divinely confirmed on July 4, 1826 with the near simultaneous deaths of Jefferson and Adams, and again on July 4, 1831 with the death of James Monroe, is that random, unplanned, chaotic chance had nothing to do with their deaths-nor was it the work of some impossible ingenious human conspiracy. Indeed, the July 4th deaths of these three Presidents confirm the existence of God giving evidence of His necessary being and mysterious and inscrutable governing of the universe and this nation. In other words, it is proof that Jefferson, Adams and Monroe died naturally under supernatural direction with an intelligent unifying principle coordinating their deaths as a sign that our country’s founding moment and Constitutional Republic were DIVINELY ORDAINED, as is our exceptionalism and glorious destiny as the greatest liberating force from tyranny in human history.

In celebration of God, Country and Liberty I wish you all a Happy 4th of July.


The 3rd President Thomas Jefferson was the first to die on July 4th. The 2nd President John Adams was the 2nd President to die on July 4th. The 5th President James Monroe was the 3rd and last President to die on July 4th. This produces the number 325. 325 is a multiple of 13 5x. 13 is the number of colonies turned independent states on July 4, 1776. Moreover, 325 is a factor in the number 17875 a 5 digit number encoded with the year 1787 when America became a Constitutional Republic-325 x 55 = 17875. Isn't it odd that it was on the 55th anniversary of July 4th that James Monroe died.


Thomas Jefferson, the first US President to die on July 4th, was President in 1808 when our nation celebrated its 32nd Independence Day. Amazingly, 7-4-1808 was the 7th year and 4th month (corresponding to July 4th) of Jefferson's two term presidency.

Mabye there’s something to this number 5. We’re a nation of 50 states, and our flag has 50 5 pointed stars. Just sayin.

X-MAN replies:

 And Hawaii, the last and 50th state to enter the Union, did so in the late 1950s.

My reply:

Not only did Hawaii (the 50th state) join the Union in the late 1950s but it did so exactly 6555 weeks from July 4, 1776,  hence:

July-4-1776 to August 21, 1959 (Hawaii joins the Union) is 183 years, 1 month and 17 days, that equates to 2197 months, or 66,886 days, or 9555 weeks (see).

      1. The Founders’ Faith – George Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, religion, faith, beliefs, Thomas Jefferson


        Most of the Founders had a belief in the continuing activity of “Providence” in the lives of men and women. Historian Mary V. Thompson wrote: “The use of the word ‘Providence,’ however, seems to put Washington squarely into common religious usage during his lifetime. ‘Providence’ was often used in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries as a substitute for the term ‘God,’ and it ‘applied to the Deity as exercising prescient and beneficent power and direction.'”233 The Founders saw the hand of Providence frequently at work in the American Revolution and its aftermath. Steven Waldman wrote that Adams “believed that God was dictating events. The settlement of America, for instance, was divinely orchestrated, ‘the opening of a grand Scene and Design of Providence.”234 John Page wrote Thomas Jefferson in July 1776: “We know the Race is not to the swift nor the battle to the Strong. Do you not think an Angel rides in the Whirlwind and directs this Storm?”235 Jefferson himself, according to historian Charles B. Stanford: “had a strong belief in God and his guidance of the world.”236

        When he was 30, John Adams wrote: “I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in Providence for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.”237 A few years before his death, Adams wrote: “A kind Providence has preserved and supported me for eight-five years and seven months, through many dangers and difficulties, though in great weakness, and I am not afraid to trust in its goodness to all eternity. I have a numerous posterity, to whom my continuance may be of some importance, and I am willing to await the order of the Supreme Power.”238

        Dr. Benjamin Rush, one of Pennsylvania’s most prominent Founders, believed that the hand of Providence was at work in America. Religion scholar Gary Kowalski wrote: “Affiliated with the Quakers, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, and universalists at differing point in his life, Rush described his faith as ‘a compound of the orthodoxy and heterodoxy of most of our Christian churches.”239 Rush changed denominations several times. David D. Kirkpatrick wrote that “after moving through Protestant denominations during his lifetime, he ended up dubious of any organized church.”240 But he was not dubious about Providence. Rush wrote in 1788: “I do not believe that the Constitution was the offspring of inspiration, but I am as perfectly satisfied that the union of the states, in its form and as perfectly satisfied that the union of the states, in its form and adoption, is as much the work of divine providence as any of the miracles recorded in the old and new testament were the effects of a divine power. ‘Tis done! We have become a nation.'”241 John Adams agreed. He wrote Rush in 1811: “God prospered our labors, and awful, dreadful, and deplorable as the consequences have been, I cannot but hope that the ultimate good of the world, of the human race, and of our beloved country is intended and will be accomplished by it.”242

        Benjamin Franklin also saw Providence at work in America and in his own life. At the beginning of his autobiography Franklin wrote: “And now I speak of thanking God, I desire with all humility to acknowledge that I owe the mentioned happiness of my past life to His kind providence, which lead me to the means I used and gave them success. My belief of this induces me to hope, though I must not presume, that the same goodness will still be exercised toward me, in continuing that happiness, or enabling me to bear a fatal reverse, which I may experience as others have done: the complexion of my future fortune being known to Him only in whose power it is to bless to us even our afflictions.”243

        Although there is no firm evidence, it is likely that John Witherspoon advocated the insertion of “with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence” in the Declaration of Independence. Historian Jeffry H. Morrison wrote that “such a suggestion would have been in keeping with Witherspoon’s political theology, and, furthermore, ‘divine Providence’ was his preferred way of referring to God’s active superintendence over creation.”244 Historian L. Gordon Tait wrote: “Witherspoon’s understanding of God took a remarkable turn when he began to grasp that God was Providence as well as Redeemer, that God did ‘uphold, direct, dispose, and govern all creatures, actions, and things, from the greatest even to the least.’ We have seen how Witherspoon tried to make providence very simple, substantial, and personal for the individual, ‘the least,’ but at the same time invoked the doctrine of providence to explain actions of ‘the greatest’ kinds, those of kings and parliaments, generals and troops, and congresses.”245 Steven Waldman wrote that “many Founding Fathers used religious language and ideas to justify rebellion and rally the people to the cause. For instance, Tom Paine, who would later be attacked by religious leaders for his Deistic manifesto The Age of Reason, cast his call for rebellion in at least partially biblical terms.” The dangers of public expressions of religious skepticism was exemplified by Paine whose anti-religious book Age of Reason undermined his public reputation.”246

        God – or Providence – was never far important public documents and public speeches. Historian Walter A. McDougall wrote that the Second Continental Congress in 1775 “[r]esolved unanimously to request the colonies join in a common day of ‘publick humiliation, fasting, and prayer.’ Its stated hope was that ‘we may with united hearts and voices unfeignedly confess and deplore our many sins, and offer up joint supplications to the all-wise, omnipotent, and merciful Disposer of all events; humbly beseeching him to forgive our iniquities, to remove our present calamities, to avert these desolating judgments with which we are threatened.’ Virginia’s burgesses made a similar appeal to the Almighty (absent the abject confession) and eminent clerics throughout the colonies issued pamphlets and sermons naming armed resistance a righteous duty….Indeed, almost all sermons published in the 1770s cited Scripture to justify resistance and promise divine hep if the colonists proved worthy of it.”247

        No Founder’s references to Providence seem more heartfelt, however, than those of George Washington, who made repeated references to the role of Providence in the development of the country. Michael and Jana Novak argued that “young Washington’s own exploits along the Monongahela has something to do with this gathering sense of a providential destiny for a whole people.”248 Historian Frank E. Grizzard, Jr., wrote: “Washington’s encounters with enemy gunfire in July 1755 during the disastrous Braddock campaign of the French and Indian War left him convinced that he had been left in the land ‘of the light by the miraculous care of Providence, that protected me beyond all human excitation.’ He had survived despite having two horses shot from under him and four bullets pass through his coat. Providence was involved in defeat, too, for British general Edward Braddock was killed and his troops beaten by a handful of men who only intended to molest and disturb their march. ‘Victory was their [the enemy’s] smallest expectation, he wrote, ‘but see the wondrous works of Providence! the uncertainty of Human things.'”249 Steven Waldman wrote that Washington “retained a sense of deep humility about man’s capacity to understand God’s ways.'”250

        Washington stood in awe of Providence and its “invisible workings,” especially in 1776 and 1777 when the prospects for the American Revolution often seemed dark. In one letter to aide Joseph Reed in early 1776, Washington wrote: “If I shall be able to rise superior to these and many other difficulties, which might be enumerated, I shall most religiously believe, that the finger of Providence is in it, to blind the eyes of our enemies; for surely if we get well through this month, it must be for want of their knowing the disadvantages we labour under.”251 The Novaks wrote that “the War of Independence only deepened his gratitude to Providence. He especially cherished the idea that Providence sustains humans through the trial and tribulations as well as the joys and successes of life.”252 In a letter in 1778, Washington wrote: “The hand of Providence has been so conspicuous in all this that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith, and more than wicked, that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligations, but, it will be time enough for me to turn preacher, when my present appointment cease, and therefore, I shall add no more on the Doctrine of Providence.”253 Washington’s letters and public statements were replete with such references to Providence:

        Letter to stepson John Parke Custis, January 22, 177: “Providence has heretofore saved us in a remarkable manner, and on this we must principally rely.”254
        General Orders, May 2, 1778: “The signal Instances of providential Goodness which we have experienced and which have now almost crowned our labours with complete success, demand from us in a peculiar manner the warmest returns of Gratitude and Piety to the Supreme Author of all Good.”255>
        Letter to Thomas Nelson, August 20, 1778: “The hand of Providence has been so conspicuous in all this, that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith, and more than wicked, that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligation, but, it will be time enough for me to turn preacher when my present appointment ceases; and therefore I shall add no more on the Doctrine of Providence; but make a tender of my best respects to your good Lady; the Secretary and other friends, and assure you that with the most perfect regard I am &c.” 256>
        Letters to the Reformed German Congregation of New York, November 27, 1783: “Disposed at every suitable opportunity to acknowledge publicly our infinite obligations to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe for rescuing our Country from the brink of destruction; I cannot fail at this time to ascribe all the honor of our late successes to the same glorious Being.”257>
        Letter to Connecticut Governor Jonathan Trumbull, July 20, 1788: “That the same good Providence may still continue to protect us and prevent us from dashing the cup of national felicity just as it has been lifted to our lips, is the earnest prayer of, my dear sir, your faithful friend etc..”258>
        Letter to William Pearce, May 25, 1794: “At disappointments and losses which are the effects of Providential acts, I never repine; because I am sure the alwise [sic] disposer of events knows better than we do, what is best for us, or what we deserve.”259>
        Letter to Henry Knox, March 2, 1797: “But [it] is not for man to scan the wisdom of Providence. The best he can do is to submit to its decrees.”260>
        Letter to Henry Knox, March 27, 1798: “It has always been my belief that Providence has not led us so far in the path of Independence for one Nation, to throw us into the Arms of another.”261>

        Frank Grizzard wrote: “The qualities attributed to Providence by Washington reveal that he conceived of Providence as an ‘Omnipotent,’ ‘benign,’ and ‘beneficent’ Being that by ‘invisible workings’ in “Infinite Wisdom’ dispensed justice in the affairs of mankind. Astonishment and gratitude were owed this Being. The ‘ways of Providence’ were, he confessed on many occasions, ultimately ‘inscrutable.’ Such beliefs are exemplified in Washington’s calm, almost detached, acquiescence to the irreversible acts of Providence, such as terminal illness or the death of a loved one.”262 Michael and Jana Novak noted the prayer that General Washington used to end his Circular Letter to the States in 1783: “I now make it my earnest prayer that God would have you, and the state over which you preside, in his holy protection, that he would incline the hearts of the Citizens to cultivate a spirit fo subordination and obedience to Government, to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another, for their fellow Citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for their brethern who have served in the Field, and finally, that he would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all, to do Justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourself with that Charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind, which were the Characteristicks of the Divine Author of our Blessed Religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy Nation.”263 Like George Washington, the Founders were well aware of man’s sinfulness.


  1. I needed this today as many others need to read this to give peace to their heart as well. Thank you Apollo. Blessing on this great day to you and your family.

        1. Reich properly is aligned with the two most corrupt, evil, murderous duo to ever crawl out of a sewer to lap up wealth through politics.


          Except you Reich.

        2. Happy Independence Day guys!

          Every time you wave the Stars and Stripes, remember that this poison dwarf hates both it and you.

          Hopefully that will give you a smile :0)
