If Animals Could Talk

Blue whale 2                                   

 Blue Whale off the California Coast Sept 13, 2011

It was an extraordinary sight, a pod of Blue Whales spotted swimming next to a vessel of Biologists and camera crew off the coast of Long Beach, California on Tuesday.  The whales, which normally travel solo or in groups of two or three (unlike other types of whales)  have been a thrilling sight for whale watchers off and on all summer. So, it was more than amazing, when the vessel Christopher encountered not just two or three of these magnificent creatures, but, as many as 15! 

Blue Whales are the largest known creatures on earth; much larger than any other animal, land or sea. The Blue Whale  can weigh as much as 330,000 pounds and grow to be over 100 feet in length, at this immense size, they are without a doubt, one of the world’s most commanding creatures and a magnificent sight to behold.

With this in mind, you can imagine how those aboard the Christopher must have felt as not one or two but, a whole pod of these immense creatures began swimming next to their vessel. For some reason, the whales had taken an intense interest in it, swimming closely to it and surfacing frequently. Then, something happened which is so rare, that it is in all probability, a first – one of the females surfaced alongside the boat making a deep low-pitched groan that lasted approximately ten seconds.  And, then, to the astonishment of everyone aboard, she, appeared at the other side of the boat, repeating the same thing, both times, keeping her head well above the surface.

The vocalization of Blue Whales below the surface is typical of their behavior, and has been well documented, but, vocalization above the surface is so rare as to be non-existent and for this to happen, not once, but, twice is extraordinary beyond belief.  *See links below for full story and video.  

If animals could talk?  We know that some times they do, when God has his hand in it.  Leading me to wonder, in these troublesome days, just what these magnificent creatures were trying to say to the people aboard the vessel Christopher.

Was it a warning, a friendly greeting or something more?

The name Christopher is of course a derivative of Christ. And, we know that Christ is our vessel of safety, the one who will deliver us through the troubled waters of this earthly life and the perilous times, in which, we live.  A whale was also, a vessel of safety for the reluctant prophet Jonah as he attempted to dodge God’s calling to go to Nineveh.

Can God use these mighty creatures of the deep? You bet he can!

I don’t know about you, but, I think this whale had something so important to say, that she said it twice.

Thank you, Lord for sending, even the great creatures of the sea to speak your voice and to do your will.  Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear, will listen and understand.

Grace and blessings in Messiah Jesus and “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee!”  Cindy


  1. Cindy,
    These animals are very sensitive to noise/vibrations/magnetic fields. I do believe that they are being affected by the things that have been occurring worldwide and who knows what else they have seen or heard and you are right, if they could speak they would be able to tell quite a story. However, we have the sign of Jonah. We have the Word of God, and it does speak. The age old question, if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a noise? Of coarse it does! So one can say that no matter what, the Gospel has been sent, even if no one “hears” it, it has been sent and communicated, even through the sign of these Whales. How much evidence does one need. I know many people who take more time to consider what they are going to watch for a movie than they do about the things that God Himself has revealed to them. He who has an ear, let him hear!

  2. Cindy, all I could think of while reading this post is the following passage.

    Romans 8:22-23

    22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
    23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.


  3. Cindy,

    This is not the first time whales have been doing odd things in recent months/years, as you have posted about in the past (spotted off the coast of israel, beachings or sightings far from their normal habitats, near the US, etc).

    Perhaps a review of all of these strange whale events may shed some additional light (timings between them, proximal events to their appearances, etc).

    God bless.

  4. My guess is that the whale would be saying “woe” twice.

    You can almost hear it if you think of the long-low rumble that these animals create.

    West coast should be on EQ watch for sure for the next several days or weeks.

  5. Hi Cindy,

    I live in Southern California and my cat has been acting weird for 3 or more days. He is an indoor cat and has never really tasted of the outside world, yet for 3 days he has been meowing at the front door, even clawing the paint off crying to go out. I have had this cat for around 15 months and have never observed him behaving like this. So D Randall, I think you might be onto something. Another thing I have recently experienced here is while driving down the freeway was, some sort of smoke or steam was coming up through the cracks in the freeway. I have not heard anyone around here state they have experienced that, but I know what I saw. 🙂 These are certainly interesting times we live in.

    [Hi Donna, my first thought, was – has he been neutered! Aside from that, I agree, animal behavior is some thing to pay attention to. Your cat may indeed be trying to tell you something; keep an eye on the natural animals as well; birds and fish – I believe God uses them for giving us advance warning. Stay safe, stay in prayer and keep watching! C]

    • Hi Cindy,

      Yes, my cat has been fixed. That’s what make it all so strange. I also want to take the opportunity to thank you for all your work on this blog. It is nice to to be a part of a community that is watching and praying as we await the Lord’s return.



  6. I live in the Central Coast of California and we have a 2 year old Labradoodle who has been acting strange all month, he has been getting behind our sofa and staying there all uncomfortable cause he doesn’t really fit and our 7 year old toy poodle sits on side of sofa almost like guarding him or staying with him while he is back there.

    [Thanks Maggie for taking the time to share. Animals are indeed sensitive in ways, we humans are not. I think it would be wise to pay attention to their actions. May God give you wisdom, strength and protection in the days to come. C]

  7. Our jack russell has been acting very strange too,we live in dakotas and he will go to the window and run away like he is scared of something I dont know what is going on with him either.

    [Hi Renae, I appreciate you writing as well. It certainly sounds like something is up, when animals act out of their normal behavior. I know from experience with past pets that they can detect not only things like seismic changes, but, spiritual changes as well. In that regard, animals do indeed “talk” – we would do well to listen to what it is they are saying. From the islands to the Dakota’s, grace and blessings to you! C]


    Cindy, I love your blog and visit every day to share what is on your heart and mind. I too am watching for Jesus, and working the fields while there is still time. Please watch this video on Comet Elenin and if it is too much of a time issue, skip to the last 5 minutes, it is amazing and so exciting! Your sister, Kristi

    [Kristi, Thanks so much for writing! I really appreciate your kind words of encouragement; it really means alot to me. Thank you too for sharing the link; I have not yet had time to look at it but, I hope to this weekend. Yes, these are amazing times! Keep looking up and keep trusting Jesus, our tower of safety and strength! Cindy]

  9. Huge Defunct Satellite Falling to Earth Faster Than Expected, NASA Says
    Expected to arrive Sept 23rd. Hmmm.

  10. I thought that was suspect as well, Jay. Likely excuse for stuff falling out of the sky, how are they going to explain away the large earthquake?
