A Forty Day Warning?

     Giant Sequoia

On Friday September 30, two giant Sequoia’s estimated to be 250 to 300 feet tall and 20 feet at the base suddenly and unexpectedly fell over in Sequoia National Park, California. Caught on video by a stunned German tourist, it is footage of the rarest kind, as trees of this age and size do not normally fall over of their own accord. 

 ‘It’s very, very rare for a giant Sequoia tree to
die standing up unless it’s in a very, very severe fire,’ a district ranger told
Catholic Online.

….. “this is historic”.

Laying side by side, like a giant number 11, one of the trees crosses the “trail of one hundred giants” blocking access to one of the parks most popular trails; leaving the park in the dilemma of what to with these massive trees, no small undertaking, whatever the decision.

Giant Sequoia’s are the largest living things on earth and the trees which fell on Sept 30 are said to be 1,500 years old, if not older, as Sequoia trees can live to be 2,000 to 3,000 years old.  

As I was thinking about the extreme rarity of not one but, two trees falling simultaneously and being caught on tape, I realized that this could be nothing short of an act of God. 

Consider the following:

– According to the park ranger in the video, the trees fell at 1:11 p.m. (PST).  

– The trees fell on Friday Sept. 30, which was Rosh Hashanah

– From Sept 30 to Nov 9 is forty days – A forty day warning for this week, if not for the 11th.  November 9 is the anniversary of Kristallnacht –  “night of the broken glass” in Germany in 1938 – considered by many to be the start of the Holocaust.  Nov 9 is also the 313th day of the year.

– The Giant Sequoia’s were designated a National Monument on April 15, 2000 – 11 years ago.

– The trees lay along side the “trail of one hundred giants”.   The word Giant in Genesis 6:1-4 is Nephilim.

I came across this story via Five Doves today and decided, though rushed that I would  post on it anyway as I am eager to hear feedback from all of you.

In light of 11/11/11, the implications regarding this story may be many. 

Looking foward to hearing from all of you as your insight is invaluable to me!  May the God of grace and peace bless you and keep you until we see each other face to face.

And, “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. Hi Cindy,


    Well you asked so here are my thoughts…

    Dan 4:10-17 The content of the dream: the rise and fall of a great tree.

    These were the visions of my head while on my bed: I was looking, and behold, a tree in the midst of the earth, and its height was great. The tree grew and became strong; its height reached to the heavens, and it could be seen to the ends of all the earth. Its leaves were lovely, its fruit abundant, and in it was food for all. The beasts of the field found shade under it, the birds of the heavens dwelt in its branches, and all flesh was fed from it. I saw in the visions of my head while on my bed, and there was a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven. He cried aloud and said thus: “Chop down the tree and cut off its branches, strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit. Let the beasts get out from under it, and the birds from its branches. Nevertheless leave the stump and roots in the earth, bound with a band of iron and bronze, in the tender grass of the field. Let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let him graze with the beasts on the grass of the earth. Let his heart be changed from that of a man, let him be given the heart of a beast, and let seven times pass over him. This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men.”

    — A tree in the midst of the earth: The tree in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was noted for its size, strength, prominence, beauty, fruit, and shelter.

    — He cried aloud and said thus: The watcher (presumably an angel) explains the fate of the tree. He notes that the tree is to be chopped down, and it will lose its size, strength, prominence, beauty, fruit, and shelter. He also says that the tree represents a man who will be changed and given the heart of a beast.

    — Bound with a band of iron and bronze: These are either for the tree stump’s confinement or protection. It is no longer free and great.

    — In order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men: Nebuchadnezzar heard these words in his dream. In light of this, the dream isn’t hard to interpret – it clearly deals with the humbling of a great king.

    Nebuchadnezzar lost his kingdom for “seven times,” that is 2,520 days

    “MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN” is a mathematical formula that adds up to 2,520.

    The words meant weighed in the balance, divided and portioned but they also were measures.

    -Mene = 1000 (20 X 50) gerahs
    -Mene = 1000 (20 X 50) gerahs
    -UPHARSIN” represents half a “MENE.”
    -A “TEKEL” is the Babylonian expression for shekel.
    -Ezekiel 45:12, “And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs:…”

    When we therefore calculate the sum of the measure of these words we get: 2520


    11/11/2011 (15th Chesvan)
    10/5/2018 (Hoshana Raba)

    Keep looking up!

    [Thank you Mike for your excellent analysis, ties in well with what Carlos wrote. I agree, the humbling of a king and the end of a kingdom. C]

  2. Cindy,

    I am immediately reminded of the parable Jesus told of the tree that bore no fruit, from Luke 13:6-9; “A man had a fig tree which he had planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground? And he answered and said to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer; and if it bears fruit next year, fine; but if not, cut it down.” and also the fig tree in Matthew 21:18-19 “Now in the morning when He was returning to the city, He became hungry. Seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves only; and He said to it, “No longer shall there be any fruit from you.” And at once the fig tree withered.

    To me, the fallings of these great trees, practically national symbols, older than our nation,
    speaks of certain judgment. Swift. and it will be witnessed by the whole world.

    [Great analysis Kathi! I thought of these same verses also. The Bible has alot to say about trees, we would do well to pay attention! Blessings! C]

  3. Thank you Cindy for your post; this is just another confirmation of the Lord’s return and that is incredibly close. I have already had a dream of a large fireball coming out of the sky and when I saw a video of the dust storm in Arizona, the second time I watched it I felt like the spirit was telling me that this represents water that will flow on America. I am sort of hoping that these will happen right before the Lord takes us because I want to have more time to witness to people. I have an evangelistic heart and I love sharing with folks. I bought red gift bags filled them w/beautiful cellophane bags of candy and included a long letter of the gospel message and a bunch of tracts. I gave a bag to each of my neighbor surrounding me. I have been praying for their salvation. I said in the letter that I felt the Lord would be returning soon and the time is closing for salvation and please do not delay. I had one neighbor call me and she said the letter gave her great comfort. I told her that’s great and I was just being obedient to the Lord. I feel like I am only partly here; the Lord has taken ALL my desires for this world; not that I am very worldly. I live modestly, but I like movies. I have the blockbuster dvd rental membership and several months back I had Harry Potter in my rental list. I heard the Lord asking me, “What does darkness have to do with light?” I said, we as Christians should have nothing to do with darkness, so I looked at my whole list and took off anything that would disappoint the Lord; basically there wasn’t much left. Hollywood just produces so much garbage. The Lord has taken the desire to see any tv or movies. I went through my house and have just tossed out a bunch of stuff that was insignificant; like magazines of “stuff” I thought I was going to buy or homeplans that I designed, I took all that and tossed it in the trash. I asked the Lord to show me the idols in my life and that is what he showed me. He has basically removed me from all the things I like to do. I had certain cop shows I’d watch on tv and I don’t watch any tv now; let’s just say it is rare. If the Lord is coming to take us home, we need to be fully ready and not cleave to these things any more. Most of what is on tv is garbage. What really upsets me is that they can use the Lord’s name in vane, but they block other foul language. When I go somewhere; driving, I have this weird though all the time; how many of these people I am passing are just going by their every day life and they don’t have a clue what is coming, tears come to my eyes. I wanted to stand at the drive through at Chick Filet and pass out $5 bills with gospel tracts, but my husband didn’t want me to do that. I want people to know. Horrible things are going to be coming upon the earth and they won’t know and they will be easily deceived by the antichrist who will appear to want to help, but we all know the truth. My heart is very heavy for those around me. I will be spending these last days in a mindset of constant prayer for the salvation of many. Pray for my neighbors that the Lord will draw them to the gospel message. I have told each of them in my letter that they can contact me any time and I will pray for them or if they have a special prayer request to please call me! The rest is up to God. I am just a servant.
    Come quickly Lord Jesus!!! Keep Israel safe and let her be victorious!!!

    [Thank you Katherine for sharing so many things from your heart. I think it’s wonderful how the Lord is leading you to share with your friends and neighbors, may God provide much fruit from your efforts. Interesting that you mentioned feeling detached from so many things lately, I have been feeling the same way too for quite some time now – but, more pronounced than ever in the last few days. Perhaps an indication that we are leaving soon. Grace and blessings! C]

    • Katherine, we too have been “purging” the garbage from our lives as the Lord is directing and that includes so much associated with the Hollywood/television garbage. We’ve even seen episodes of “classic” tv (early tv like Jack Benny) that is becoming so offensive and the world would laugh at us because to them it’s “innocent”. thank you for your heart to witness and your heart to follow God, it is good to see and hear confirmation that the Lord is moving so many to the same things.

  4. This is a remarkable find, Cindy, and very good work and supporting ideas from you and Mike’s comment! My thoughts were drawn to remember the two sticks, one representing Judah (Judah, Benjamin, Levi), and the other representing Ephraim (lost tribes). The two sticks become one in Messiah. Hosea says that the House of Ephraim(Northern Kingdom) will be scattered and mixed in the nations. Amos says that God has sieved them but not one precious kernel has fallen to the ground. He knows where they are. Ezekiel 37 says the dry bones represent the whole house of Israel. It’s difficult enough to unite a people with an identity like the Jews, scattered all over the earth but to unite a people who don’t even KNOW that they are a people is phenomenal!

    The 2700 years of mixing in the nations have taken their toll. His brand of “Christianity” is not even remotely recognizable as having an Israelite origin. A real spiritual house-cleaning is in order to get rid of all the pagan garbage accumulated in 2000 years; pagan church traditions, pagan festivals, Greek thinking in the Church, wrong doctrines, simply having lost Israelite roots. Only the two sticks of the Messiah, the cross, can make them one and be their peace. Finally, there will be no more harassment and envy between these “brothers” but unity for the first time in their history – a “Joseph” crying with his brothers moment! Then use this UNITED stick, this living stick, as His scepter to rule with.

    Judgement begins with the church, and as you have pointed out with the earthquakes in “Christchurch” New Zealand, and recently with strange earthquakes in “The Bible Belt” Oklahoma. Here added in your post with two tremendous trees, with so much history, falling for unknown reason. Perhaps to be a sign and make us search as we are for meaning and understanding.

    “I will shake the House of Israel among the nations as grain is shaken in a sieve, but not a kernel will fall to the ground” Amos 9:9 Has that happened yet? Shaken but not lost to God.

    Perhaps with simple insight observing these two trees, we should look to our “roots” in gaining deeper understanding as well.

    [Thanks Tamra, I think your observation regarding the roots is a very good one and also ties in well with what Carlos said. The roots are undoubtedly very important; it was a shared root system that brought these two magnificent trees down together. C]

  5. Does anyone remember the black and white american flags that were displayed like political signs in people’s yards? If I remember correctly they also had 11/11/11 on them, and it was roughly 3 years ago. I find no record of them anymore on the internet. In my research this morning, there was a video explaining the reason behind the flag, meaning injustice and recession by Young Jeezy featuring Kanye West. I’ll see what else I can find.

    [Hi Mrs. M, I am not familiar with the black and white flags you mentioned, let me know what you find – sounds interesting! C]

    • I can’t find it, but I have to clarify it said 11/11, not 11/11/11. I remember it was on a discussion board so I just used their search engine and couldn’t find it. We have had an interesting conversation on la marzulli’s blog today concerning the skulls, I find it curious as to the dates and it coinciding with Noah’s flood starting on Cheshvan 17 which is Nov 14 on our calendar.

  6. […] – The trees lay along side the “trail of one hundred giants”.   The word Giant in Genesis 6:1-4 is Nephilim. [ANALYSIS FOUND HERE] […]

  7. Sister Cindy . . . God bless you for posting this excellent analysis of a most essential topic. Very few things surprise me anymore, but I watched the linked videos with awe and reverence, for certainly God is speaking here, and clearly I might add. This was also very sobering; I found myself choked up and emotional. My take on what this means will likely be different than most. When I saw these trees fall, I knew in my heart that I was watching the fall of my country, America, in a double judgment. Yes, I see this event as clearly symbolic of her near-future fall. And, no, I do not believe her ultimate fall will be in 2011.

    It was one tree, but it was two trees. One nation, yet judgment doubled. The fallen tree(s) blocked the path (the time is rapidly slipping away for choosing the only correct path, Jesus Christ).

    The Lord has already given this nation obvious warnings through two other fallen trees, both on the White House lawn; the elm which fell in late June of 2006 and the linden on 9 June, 2009. They fell precisely 1080 days apart (3 prophetic years). Biblically, a tree generally represents a king or a nation.

    As I said, my take is different. I do not see this stunning “eleven” connection as having much to do with either November or of 2011. Rather, eleven is, biblically, a powerful number of judgment, and of chaos and disorder as well. Chaos and disorder in a society are actually symptoms of precursor or “moth stage” judgments, yet the number eleven is also related to the more grim meaning of judgment as in the “fall” of a nation. With “Occupy Wall Street”, and many other daily events including those in the political realm, we are certainly observing the “chaos and disorder” stage of judgment.

    Remember also, these trees fell at 1:11 pm, or 13:11 more precisely. Certainly, the “13” points to the nation of America. I believe that the original colonies were purposely chosen to be precisely “13” by the occult working behind the scenes. Bullinger says this about the number thirteen (in part)-

    But we must go back to the first occurrence of the number thirteen in order to discover the key to its significance. It occurs first in Gen 14:4, where we read “Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and the thirteenth year they REBELLED.”

    Hence every occurrence of the number thirteen, and likewise of every multiple of it, stamps that with which it stands in connection with rebellion, apostasy, defection, corruption, disintegration, revolution, or some kindred idea.

    Bullinger also says “the Cain line collectively is a multiple of 13.”

    13:11 . . . . . . . . America:Judgment

    That’s my view. And, as you pointed out, the fallen trees themselves form a perfect “11”. In summary, again I see this event as a symbolic precursor to a near-future double judgment upon the nation. The connections which Mike made to both Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar fit perfectly, I’d say. America Babylon’s current king himself seems to be a “type” of both of those kings of ancient Babylon!

    There is more which can be gleaned from this story, certainly. Awesome work on your analysis; I find the Rosh Hashanah connection to be especially stunning. I am thankful to you, Cindy, for posting; for this event was “historic” indeed.

    Abundant Blessings,


    [Thank you Carlos for your excellent analysis! The 13 colonies would be the “roots of the nation. Very interesting! Because of the shared root system, when one tree went down, they both went down ….. hmmmmm, your comment has me thinking again – may up-date my post – we’ll see – thanks Brother, your insight greatly appreciated! C]

  8. I agree with Carlos 13-11,…

    This (backwards) warning popped up…

    Tories warn of ‘severe’ consequences if UK abstains in Palestinian UN vote Nicholas Soames, grandson of Winston Churchill, says UK wrong to deny self-determination to Palestinians

    We believe that Britain should vote in favour of Palestinian statehood at the UN Security Council on November 11th. This is the time for the UK to stand on the right side of history – especially because of our historical involvement through the British Mandate in Palestine and the Balfour Declaration.

    How has God warned the Nations in the past?…

    Hebrews 11:7: “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”

    Jonah 3:4-5: “And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.

    Genesis 41:30-31: “And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land; And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.”

    Matthew 24:38, 39: “For as in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage up to the day Noah entered the Ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away.”

    We have His Word, so there is no excuse.

    Now the 11th all the Nations are weighed in the balances.

    The Pleiades and 11-11-11 (speculative)

    This is an analysis of the ancient Jewish calendar and a set of identical celestial signs that link The Fall of Babylon, and 2550 years later the date 11-11-11.

    If they divide Israel THEY will be cut in pieces…Zechariah 12:2

    Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

    Three days later is 13-11 the 17th of Cheshvan

    17th of Cheshvan, 5678

    The Balfour Declaration of 1917 (dated 2 November 1917) was a letter
    from the British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron
    Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild), a leader of the
    British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation
    of Great Britain and Ireland.

    17 Marcheshvan – Noah and his family went into the ark and that same day the flood waters were broken up.

    So we have the warning, the choice 11-11 (doesn’t that look like scales), and the punishment.

  9. I usually read and have never posted. I truly appreciate this site, Cindy and so many discerning believers. As I read this last post, I was thinking of what this shared root system would be. The first thought was of the United States and Europe. It seems as though this could be relevent to the judgement we’ll see…..the chaos that has already started (economically and politically)….and the prophecy from Revelation and from Daniel regarding the toes (ten nations) of the statue. And then there’s Iran, with it’s impending nuclear threat, and the nation-wide alert system practice yesterday. And now, Russia refusing to sanction Iran. In light of Ezekiel and prophecy of the War of Gog and Magog, the heat is turning up. I’m no expert at scripture or prophecy…it just seems like so many things are culminating now. BUT…..I will watch and keep my eyes open, but my heart will remain fixed on the Lord and his glorious plans and faithfulness through the ages to those who love and obey Him. May nothing shake us and it all shakes down around us. God’s strengthen and keep you.

    [Hi Darlene, thank you so much for taking the time to write. I think you make an excellent point about the shared root system between the United States and Europe – when, one falls, they, both go down. Great observation! C]

  10. A nation divided against itself (one nation divided into TWO factions) cannot stand. Please see my comments on Cindy’s post about the crystal skulls.

    • Looks like good ole Abe agrees with you, Jeane.

      “From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia…could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.”
      ― Abraham Lincoln

  11. Towering twins that look impressive and strong, but it turns out the root structure has decayed and there is no strength left in them.

    [I couldn’t have said it better! Thanks, Jay! C]

  12. Does anyone notice that here at the end times we have a sudden
    appearance of a dark man named Cain, and it was predicted that in the
    last days mankind would be exactly the same as in the beginning. Could
    there be a connection between the two Cains as the new one is showing
    a dark side as noted by his accusers? Once again people are falling for
    his words without knowing who he really is….just like Obama who came
    out of nowhere! I’m not commenting on race here but rather ‘ a dark
    horse’ politician.I don’t recall that this has happened before and find
    it rather odd.



    [Hi Carolyn, Thank you for writing! I think you are right, there is much about this candidate that we do not know yet. For some interesting analysis from a spiritual perspective check out these posts by brother Art at NewWineskins. C]

  13. Cindy, do not have much more to add to these very thoughtful and prayer-provoking comments, but the one thing that did strike me was the age of the trees (appx 1500 to 2000 years or longer). It sounds as if they are believed to have sprung up soon after Christ came to earth to save us, or possibly during the time He walked this earth. Not sure why that is sticking out in my mind but it seems to me that if they did come up after He ascended to the Father, and they fall now, before judgment and even His second coming…just stood out in my head.

    [Excellent observation Tam! Another sign, perhaps, that the “church age” is or has reached its conclusion. Thanks for writing! C]
