the sign of Jonah

Gray whale sighted off Herzliya Marina   Gray Whale spotted off Herliya Marina, Israel

Living in Hawaii for the past ten years, I’ve developed a great appreciation for the mammoth creatures who inhabit the deep known as whales.  Every year during the winter months the Humpback Whales make their way from Alaska to the warmer waters of the southern Pacific for giving birth to their young.  It’s not uncommon during these winter months to witness from the shore an occasional  fluke, fin, blast of spray or breach – all of which are an unforgettable sight, no matter how many times you’ve seen it!  So, when I read a post on Five Doves yesterday posted by Susan, “Largest whale ever seen spotted in Israel,” – it immediately caught my attention.

“Now the Lord prepared a great fish”  Jonah 1:17

For those of you who may have missed the story out of Israel Saturday May 8, a 40 foot long Gray Whale was spotted off the coast of Tel Aviv.  Called by one news article, “the most amazing whale sighting in history”.  It is truly astonishing, when you realize that these whales have been extinct in the Atlantic since the 1700’s; that’s more than 300 years!  And, with only 20,000 or so of these amazing animals still in existence, it is equally incredible that one of them should make the incredibly long journey from the Pacific to the Mediterranean in a journey that is truly baffling to scientists.  For the whale would have either had to swim through the Panama canal, through the Bering Strait near the ice cap or around the Cape of Africa, all of which are nothing short of miraculous considering the extremely long distances involved.  And, with Israel figuring so predominantly in the news these days and in light of Biblical prophecy being fulfilled, I can’t help, but, think that the sighting of this whale off the coast of Tel Aviv is signficant.

 – the sign of Jonah

One of the news articles I read was titled:  Mediterranean Gray whale appears ‘back from the dead’I liked that title. For the author, I believe unbeknownst to him, was making a prophetic statement. In Matthew 12:38, some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus asking him for a miraculous sign.  And, according to Luke 11:16, what they were requesting was a heavenly sign, perhaps a sign in the skies.  It was not enough for them, as it says in Luke 7:22, that “the blind see, the lame walk and the leper is purified.”  They wanted something more  – and this is how Jesus answered them.

“A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign. But, none will be given it except for the sign of the prophet Jonah.  For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a great fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.  The men of Ninevah will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here.”  Matthew 12:39-41

Most of us are familiar with this passage and understand it rightly so to pertain to the resurrection.  But, I believe in looking at the book of Jonah, there may be a secondary application as well.  For Jonah is listed as one of the minor prophets, and a prophet he is indeed.

 – whale song

Based on the size of the whale, scientists believe the whale spotted off the coast of Israel is that of a mature adult.  Mature gray whales from what I have read, are 40 -45 feet in length and have a life expectancy of 50 – 70 years.  Splitting those numbers down the middle, it would be a safe bet, to say that this particular whale is approximately 60 years old.  Which, if this should be the case, its birth would have coincided with the birth of Israel in 1948!    Interesting, as both the whale and the nation of Israel once considered dead, are not only not dead, but, are alive and thriving today and close to rounding out a generation of 70 years.

 We know from an analysis of numbers in scripture, that the number 40 speaks of a time of trial, chastisement and probation. And, the number 70 (seven the number of completion) denotes a generation.  Because the final seven years of history primarily concern Israel, I believe the size and age of this whale are direct indications that the time of Jacob’s trouble is at hand.  A confirmation that the “sign of Jonah” given to the Pharisee’s who approached Jesus in disbelief was a sign not only for them, but, for Israel today, who, like the Pharisee’s of old, remain largely in unbelief. For what is the book of Jonah about, if it is not repentance.

Listen to the prayer of Jonah as he prayed inside the belly of the great fish and apply it to unbelieving Israel today.

“In my distress I called to the Lord and he answered me.  From the depths of the watery grave,  I called for help and you listened to my cry.  You hurled me in to the deep, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me.  I said, I have been banished from your sight, yet I will look again toward your holy temple.  The engulfing waters threatened me; seaweed was wrapped around my head.  To the roots of the mountains I sank down, the earth beneath barred me in forever. But, you brought my life up from the pit, O Lord my God.  When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.  Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that would be theirs. But I, with a song of Thanksgiving will sacrifice to you.  What I have vowed I will make good.  Salvation comes from the Lord.”  Jonah 2:2-9

Yes, salvation is of the Lord.  Something Israel will realize when they have sunk to the bottom of the depths as Jonah did, with nowhere to turn and no one to call on, but, God.  As I pondered the significance of the sighting, I wondered if it was a sign for Israel or a sign for the church and I decided it was both.  I believe it is first and foremost a sign for Israel, for the whale was sighted very close to land, not more than a mile off the shore of Tel Aviv.  To me this indicates that this pertains to Israel.  It pertains to us the church only in the sense that God has given us the eyes to see and to recognize that the time is at hand.  Scientists may be baffled as to how the whale arrived in the Mediterranean, but, I am not.  God brought the whale in the same way he brought the animals to the ark – he called them.  And after he called them, he closed the door of the ark on Noah and his family.

An interesting side note – After the repentant Jonah arrived in Nineveh, he preached to the city that they would have forty days to repent.  Forty days from the first sighting of the whale on May 8 is June 17, – the 5th of Tammuz on the Jewish calendar AND the anniversary of Ezekiel’s vision of the chariot.  A vision which has to do with many heavenly mysteries including –  the heavens and firmament, angels and the twelve tribes of Israel; something which may be alluded to in Revelation 7:1.

“After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.  Then I saw another angel coming up from the east having the seal of the living God.  He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:  Do not harm the land, the sea or the trees, until we put a seal of God on the foreheads of the servants of our God. Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from the tribes of Israel.”  Rev. 7:1-4

Will the twelve tribes of Israel be sealed forty days from the sighting of the whale?  I don’t know, but, I can tell you this – we who are waiting and watching for the return of Jesus are going home soon!  We have witnessed the sign of Jonah and the time of Jacob’s trouble is ready to begin.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee!  Psalm  122:6   Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy

  1. Here is your second witness to this grand statement by the Lord, God, Almightly, Cindy. As soon as I saw this article, I began thinking, OK, Lord, what are you trying to tell me here and the Spirit said, “Jonah….think about Jonah”! Praise God, He is AWESOME. That is the main word that keeps coming to my mind these days about our God. HE IS AWESOME, MIND BLOWING, UNPHATHOMABLE and WORTHY TO BE PRAISED.

  2. Great research and discernment, Cindy!

    Since whales are so large (and therefore eat a great deal) their presence bespeaks an entire ecosystem of life we cannot see, much as does the reality of Christ. Our life in Christ is “below the surface”.

    To have it breaking off the surface off the coast of Israel indicates LIFE, contrasting sharply with the blood-like oil clogging the surface of our coast, which is killing it off.

    The way they eat is even more interesting. They feed from the very bottom — from the things that have “fallen down” covered in mud keeping the things that are nourishing and spitting out what is not, just as Christ does with the lukewarm believers in the church at Laodicea. They most typically congregate in pods of three (Trinity?) but up to sixteen (sounds like a good small group). Larger pods tend to be unstable.

    I especially like the term Kim used: “unfathomable”. Like the Gray Whale’s underwater range and feeding habits, miles below, it “goes deep”. We cannot fully plumb the depths of this mystery.

    The real kicker for me though, is this: The Latin name for the Gray Whale is “Eschrichtius robustus”. It means (roughly) the robust oath of Christ, the Word made flesh!!!

    Praise our Lord and Savior, Yeshua — the Christ who’s returning to reign!!

    • Art – Robustus does mean “hardy” or “robust”, but where did you find a definition for Eschrichtius? I’m having trouble finding one via Latin-to-English translators online; perhaps you have found a good one.

      I did find this info on one site: “Gray Whales were once called Devil Fish because of their fighting behavior when hunted. The Gray Whale is the sole species in the genus Eschrichtius, which in turn is the sole genus in the family Eschrichtiidae. This animal is one of the oldest species of mammals.”

      Regards.

      • Correct info for the Latin name of the gray whale:

        The Gray Whale’s scientific name is Eschrichtus robustus.
        The genus name honors Daniel Fredrik Eschricht, and the specific name is Latin for “stout or robust”.

        Looking further into Eschrich (without the ending “t”, which had no definitive results in my searches):

        Eschrich is German: from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements ask ‘ash’, ‘spear’ + rik ‘mighty’, ‘rich’.

        So a stout mighty ashen spear, perhaps?

        Hey didn’t Art just run into “ash” a few times recently? Interesting =)

  3. Thank you for your comment, Cindy. I saw this report on the Drudge last night before bed. I knew immediately this was a sign of Jonah. It is such a blessing to read what other watchmen are seeing and confirming too. I am hoping for Yeshua’s return this month for various reasons you have mentioned. But if He tarries, I have been waiting since 1988, and will continue with praise and excitement for such a time as this! Tamra

  4. Yeah this was very encouraging to read this morning 🙂

    Btw, 2010 Hurricane season for the Eastern/Southern US looks like it could be a big one http://www.accuweather.com/blogs/news/story/31409/2010-atlantic-hurricane-season.asp
    (But they say this almost every year, so we’ll see.)

  5. […] island paradise of Hawaii has seen a goodly number of whales. I urge you to check out her post “The Sign of Jonah” which she put up earlier today. I will not attempt to repeat the excellent observations she makes. […]

  6. Great post Cindy——loved where your spiritual discernment took you.

    There’s so many prophetic events happening daily that I am on the edge of my seat waiting to witness the next one. And I truely believe that the world will witness some “major” prophetic events very soon. It seems like all of a sudden we are on “fast foward” with the end time scenario.

    Keep up your inspiring posts— until that trumpet blasts. (With everything that is going on I believe the designated angel may be puckering his lips)

  7. Wonderful and exciting post Cindy. Prophetic events are happening so quickly now my head is spinning. I have a terrible family problem that’s been on going for several years which I’ve been praying about and I had just about lost hope that my prayers would be answered but suddenly I’m at peace. It seems that God is telling me in the spirit to hang in there, we’ll be going home soon!

  8. Great Post Mom! This is such and exciting time we live in, and I am always amazed at how God continually shows us signs in ways that none of us would expect. I appreciate all your posts and for taking the time to do this blog, I know I am blessed to have a Mom that is always watching and can share all these things with me and everyone else willing to listen. God Bless! Love you

  9. Cindy, I also saw the first story on the Isreal whale on Drudge last night, but we had a another 40 ft grey whale in Dana Point Harbor in Calif. It was tangled in rope (significant?). Then I read of the one in False Creek Canada also 40 ft. 3 grey whales, all 40 ft long in the same week. The Lord is yelling out this sign. I also immediately thought of Jonah, and Leviathan. He is truly trying to get the attention of those who are watching.

    • Hi Cindy, Very interesting that three 40′ foot whales should be in the news at the same time. Hardly a coincidence I’d say – more like the divine underscoring of a point for anyone paying attention. Thanks for sharing this info here. Grace and blessings sister and keep watching! Cindy

  10. Matthew 16:1,4: “And the Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Him asked Him to show them a sign from heaven…. An evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign; and a sign will not be given it, except the SIGN OF JONAH. And he left them, and went away.”

    Matthew 17:1-2: “And SIX DAYS LATER Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and BROUGHT THEM UP to a high mountain by themselves. And HE WAS TRANSFIGURED before them; and His face shone like the sun, and his garments became as white as light.”

    Whale sighting = 5/8/2010 + 6 days = 5/14/2010 (BELIEVERS BEING ‘BROUGHT UP’ AND BEING ‘TRANSFIGURED’ WITH CHRIST IN GLORY?)

    • It’s an interesting point you bring up Rob and it might well be so – wouldn’t it be great if you are right? A couple of more days and we’ll know! The rapture window as far as I am concerned runs any time from now until Sept (Rosh Ha Shanah). Thanks for sharing brother! Cindy

  11. Hi Cindy, my name is Pete, I’m writing on behalf of Shelterwood–a licensed residential teen treatment facility with two locations in Missouri. Would you be interested in including a link to Shelterwood.org as a resource on your site? We would be open to a link exchange as well if that is something you might be interested in.

    We are located on the web at http://www.shelterwood.org. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards,

    • Hi Pete, I looked at your website and I liked what I saw. Just this past week, the 16 year old son of a friend of a friend tried to hang himself. Our young people are suffering outside the love of Jesus. God bless you in this very important ministry! Grace and blessings, Cindy

  12. Remarkable, remarkable discernment and research, Cindy.

    It is fascinating how He has placed His servants in prophetically strategic locales at this time: so that each can add insights from the unique areas in which He has had them become familiar and uses this so that what was once seen only ‘through a glass darkly’ is revealed to rapidly add the necessary pieces to complete and finally unify the entire endtime prophetic presentation.

    Thank you for your diligence: you are very much respected and admired.

    • Sue, Its very good to hear from you and I thank you for your very kind words. You have been an inspiring force in my writing and I look forward to the many things I know that God has for you to share with us as you continue his good work. Grace and blessings to you dear sister, Cindy

  13. what a wonderful post!

    time for WHALING and gnashing of teeth???

    • Now THAT was a baaad pun, Paul. Five yard penalty. 🙂

      Seriously though, I think you may have stumbled us onto a pretty provocative and timely clue.

      The ONLY time the word ‘wail’ shows up in the NT in the KJV is in Revelation 1:7 and Jesus’ return —

      “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”

      And the last (of eight) times that its Greek root word ‘kopto’ shows up is in Revelation 18:9, regarding the fall of Babylon —

      “And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament [wail; ‘kopto’] for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning…”

      Come, Lord Jesus, come!

  14. […] is a post by Cindy by the Sea made several days ago…READ IT HERE if you haven’t had a chance to yet…! Thanks Cindy – truly amazing! What I wanted […]

  15. Cindy…I am sure you are aware a grey whale was spotted the same day in Southern California, and has now died. Since one whale (Israel) and one (SoCal) same day only the SoCal whale dies after 3-days…seems like their is a connection and a message here. Any further thoughts?

    • Hi James, Good observation and yes, I do think there is an obvious connection. I was talking to my daughter this morning about your question regarding the whales and she reminded me of Psalm 9:16 – “the Lord is known by his justice, the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hand.” The fact that one whale of the same type is spotted off the coast of Israel and the other is ensnared on the same day off the coast of the United States is not a coincidence. The spiritual imagery as you noted in your comment of this same subject regarding leviathan is quite telling. The United States is getting ensnared “tangled up” in something they should not be (division of Jerusalem) and the fact that the ensnared whale died three days later does not bode well for the United States. As it says in Zech. 2:8 “for who ever touches Israel, touches the apple of God’s eye”. Cindy

  16. In further research, the Whale in Israel was first spotted on May 8th and the Whale in SoCal 3-days later on the 11th – another 3-days later (14th) the SoCal whale died. The only reported Whale death during this timeframe. Is their a possible message here for the U.S., as Cindy provided a very good possible interpretation of the Whale in Israel.

    Possible Sign of Satan and of Judgment

    “In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He (the LORD) shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.” Jesus is said to wield a sharp sword that He should smite (strike) the nations. Isaiah 27:1

    Leviathan, is a sea monster referred to in the Tanakh and the Bible. In Demonology, Leviathan is one of the seven princes of Hell and its gatekeeper (see Hellmouth). The word leviathan has become synonymous with any large sea monster or creature. In modern literature (such as the novel Moby-Dick) it refers to great whales, and in Modern Hebrew, it means simply “whale.”

    Leviathan, the great Dragon (Satan) from the Watery Abyss, roars fourth as the surging sea, and these invocations are his tribunals – The Satanic Bible pp143

    “Great Whales” “Great Dragon (Satan)” ~ what is the name the U.S. is given by Iran “Great Satan”

    Could this be a warning to America?
    “In that day (end-times) the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent (Great Satan – U.S.), even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He (the LORD) shall slay the dragon that is in the sea (which symbolically just happened).”


    “Destruction of Leviathan”. 1865 engraving by Gustave Doré

    Revelation 18:2-8
    With a mighty voice he shouted:
    “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!
    She has become a home for demons
    and a haunt for every evil[a] spirit,
    a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.
    For all the nations have drunk
    the maddening wine of her adulteries.
    The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
    and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
    Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
    “Come out of her, my people,
    so that you will not share in her sins,
    so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
    for her sins are piled up to heaven,
    and God has remembered her crimes.
    Give back to her as she has given;
    pay her back double for what she has done.
    Mix her a double portion from her own cup.
    Give her as much torture and grief
    as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
    In her heart she boasts,
    ‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow,
    and I will never mourn.’
    Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
    death, mourning and famine.
    She will be consumed by fire,
    for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

    I will also add, during this same 3-day SoCal Whale beaching to death period, rare Rainbow clouds appeared over SoCal, the same type Rainbow clouds were seen over China and Chile before their major quakes.

    • This is a remarkable set of connections, James. The LA whale death on 5/14, as most here probably know, occurred on the anniversary of Israel’s founding. More particularly, that was the date Harry Truman unilaterally signed off on it, leading the way to making it possible. For the gematria to then line up with the current president in this way sends a strong signal. For “Pi” to be involved says to me “what comes around goes around” or perhaps “the Lord knows and sees ALL that goes on in this round world which He made”.

      • Great follow up to James comment, Art! Thanks for adding to it and connecting all the points – remarkable indeed!

      • This may indicate the time of the gentiles has been fulfilled. Nevertheless, we must admit, 2010 has unfolded some very strange events which we know is only the beginning. Signs and wonders shall follow.

        Has anyone else noticed a sudden awakening of Daniel prophecy blog posts?

  17. PS to above (just an interesting observation):

    May 8th (1st Israel sighting) = 508 – Results by Jewish Gematria = God Numbers

    May 14th (death of Whale) = 514 – Results by Jewish Gematria = B H Obama Traitor

    May 14th = 514 / Pi = 163, 163 in Simple Gematria = Barack Hussein Obama

  18. The Israel whale was first seen off the coast of Herzliya
    Latitude: 32.1658 North
    Longitude: 34.8367 East

    The U.S. Whale was at Doheny State Beach, CA
    Latitude: 33.46222 North
    Longitude: 117.68 West

    The distance between these two points = 6566.91537132872 Nautical Miles

    Adding the Whole and fractional numbers 6+5+6+6+9+1+5+3+7+3+2+8+7+2 = 70

    The whole number 6566 contains three sixes 666 (no explaination required)

    65 = “Barak Obama” in Simple Gematria in the #1 position
    67 = “Santanic” in Simple Gematria (6566.91537132872 rounded to the whole of 6567)

    The addition of the whole and fractional being 70 = “Ahmadinejad” in Simple Gematria

    The number seventy is another combination of two of the perfect numbers, seven and ten. As compared with the sum of two numbers, the product exhibits the significance of each in an intensified form. Hence 7 x 10 signifies perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and significance. Both spirit and order are greatly emphasized.

    I have not drawn any conclusions yet, just reporting my findings – further thoughts welcomed.

  21. Dear Cindy,

    Thank you for providing the continuing nourishment of the Scriptures. We all read the sign of Jonah and take it to heart and marvel at the Hand of God. But, I have overlooked the 2nd half of what our Lord said in the Sign of Jonah, “The men of Ninevah will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it.”

    Who is chastising US? Who is condemning US? We say they are islamic terrorists. We say they are fundamentalist radicals. The Men of Ninevah are known to the Lord but not to US.

    Our Redeemer and the One in who’s image we are made told US and it is written in the Sign of Jonah. He will use THE MEN OF NINEVAH.

    We say many things except for the continuing important part of the 2nd half of the Sign of Jonah, “for they repented at the preaching of Jonah”

    Our people have not repented unto the Lord. We kill 40 million of our defenseless babies and say how wicked is China, Russia, Hitler. We covet our neighbors property and call it welfare. We lust for another and divorce our covenant coholder and say it is irreconcilable differences.

    We point out the speck of dust in our neighbors eye with 20/20 vision from 5000 miles away, yet we cannot see the beam in our eye. We have blinded ourselves with US.

    We have continued with a heart of stone. Even our Black Regiment is deaf. Our nations pulpits are filled with blatherings words. We do not want to hear,………REPENT.

    It is truly the word of Love. Only to the ones He loves does He chastise and ask to change. If He didn’t love US, he wouldn’t be asking US to change our ways.

    Oh Lord, great is thy name. Forgive me, Lord, for I am wrong. Please change my heart and make it thine. Please forgive me, forgive US. Let US be filled with you.

    Oh Lord, thank you for the men of Ninevah. Thank you for sending The Men of Ninevah. Thank you for using The Men of Ninevah for it shows you love US. The Men of Ninevah have been sent to US because we are a treasure in your eye.

    Let US love The Men of Ninevah. Do good to those who hurt US. If our enemy asks for a cloak, let US give him the one on our back and then the other. If our enemy needs food and shelter, let US provide for them. Let US remember thy ways, not our ways.

    Let US walk with you for you gave your commandments written on stone only to two nations, Israel & US. We are the lost sheep of Israel. Your son Yeshua said he has come for the Lost sheep of Israel. YosoY Israel. YosoY US.

    http://www.yosoy.com/New%20Data/Fun%20&%20Photo/I%20am%20that%20I%20am.html

    For thou art the Lord and I am thy servant.

    • Excellent points, YosoY. Absolutely, the sign of Jonah is one of repentance – first for Israel, who I believe God is trying to provoke to look in to their own scriptures (the book of Jonah) for its meaning – and secondly, to those of us who claim his name and claim to be his bride, to get our house in order (if we have not already done so) – More than likely, there is a pre-determined amount of days following this sign for repentance to take place – if we’re not willng to do it within this allotted time frame, then God may well use a tyrannical goverment and Islam to do it for us. Cindy

  22. This is part of what came to me recently, beginning 3/11/2010:

    http://encyclopedia.farlex.com/608+BC

    Pharaoh Necho II, seeing the chance to fill the vacuum left by Assyria and to reassert Egypt’s traditional sway over Syria, sends his full army north. King Josiah of Judah, who still considers himself Assyria’s vassal, meets the Egyptians single-handed at Megiddo and is slain. It is this battle that gives its name to the prophetic world-battle of the biblical book of Revelations: ‘Har’ (the Mountain of) ‘Megiddo’, Armageddon

    I then went forward 1290 years bringing me to 682 A.D. Right in the middle of the building of the Dome of the Rock.

    As i said, some strange things took place, and for me to tell you those things, would be to invoke thoughts of lunacy from you. What happened was for me…But one event did happen for a witness to the numbers I came up with, that when realized, will be the biggest archeological discovery in the history of mankind. I’m not over stating this.

    During the whirlwind, I was exploring earthquake faults along the west coast of the United States, when my buddy suggested i look at the Cascadia (what he called it) fault that is under the sea, up along the west coast. As I was going northward on Google maps (satellite), the fault began to shift to the west toward Alaska. The fault is huge, so I kept following it until I went passed the horn of Alaska. As I went passed the horn, to my utter shock, there it was, a scorpion’s stinger perfectly shaped at the bottom of the Bering Sea.

    The first thing that popped into my mind after the shock was, “Zoom out!” So I did so, and what I found Daniel, is going to flip the world upside down. All the beasts from Genesis, Ezekiel, Daniel, and Revelation are painted by God in the formation of the earths crust. See attached screen shots

    I zoomed out and there was the bear with the mouth of a lion filling up the entire Pacific Ocean. The ram to the west, as if he is running westward, and his mouth is eating Australia. Under S.America is a hoof on top of a serpents head. Genesis 3:15 – michael333

  23. Video about this Jonah Whale!

  24. Hi Cindy,
    It seems that prophecy is occurring before our eyes! Jonahs travel from Jaffa to Ninevah is 560 miles as the crow flies. About 28 days to travel that distance averaging 20 miles a day. Add a couple days for the road not being in a straight line. 30 travel days plus the 40 day time limit is a total of 70 days. May 8 to July 19 is about 72 days. July 19 is the 9th of Av, a day when both of the Jewish temples were destroyed along with many other disasters for Israel over the centuries.
    It is a time to turn back to God and to love your neighbor as yourself.

    • Wow Jerry! That is just phenomenal, I had never thought of it like that! Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will be giving this alot of thought. Blessings brother and thank you for sharing this with me! Cindy
      * I counted the days from May 8 until July 19 and if I counted correctly, its exactly 70 days!! Incredible as 70 is a very significant number in scripture!

  25. Look! http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=52.295042,179.560547&spn=20.679229,44.560547&t=h&z=5

  26. […]  For many of us, the sighting of the whale represented a period of warning  – a symbol, reminiscent of Jonah and the whale regarding repentance – a symbol, which could preclude events in the not to distant future regarding Gog, Magog and eventually the time of Jacob’s trouble. For a refresher on my thoughts on this, check out my post of May 12, “the sign of Jonah.”  https://cindybythesea.wordpress.com/2010/05/12/the-sign-of-jonah/ […]

  27. Great Post!! I was hoping someone would do a post on the sign of Jonah (opposed to climate shifting) for the reason of this grey whales appearance in Israel.

    Thank You again Cindy for a great post!

    Be Blessed,
    Joshua

    • Thanks Joshua! I’m still amazed by the appearance of that whale – God had a hand in that for sure! Cindy
