Blood Moons – Post Analysis – Part 2

In the early morning hours of September 28 residents of Jerusalem came out from the restful confines of the homes (or Sukkah’s) in which they had been sleeping in order to view the blood moon which appeared directly over their city that night.  And, this was not just any blood moon, as you will remember but, a supermoon, – the last of the much-anticipated  2014/2015 tetrad which appeared above them in the sky that night. The moon appearing 12-14% larger than normal as if providing additional emphasis to the importance of this particular series of celestial events.

A Sukkah as discussed in my last post is a “booth”  or temporary dwelling which Jews are required to live in during the feast of Tabernacles. The purpose of the Sukkah is to serve as a reminder of how God provided for the Israelites after bringing them out of Egypt. A Sukkah therefore is a place of rest. So, if it was God’s intention to call them out from the Sukkah the night of September 28 in order to view the fourth and final blood moon it can only mean one thing – the opposite of rest – which is unrest.

And, this has indeed been the case as the blood moon had no sooner than passed when Jerusalem began to see an exponential rise in violence; evidence in my opinion that Israel has indeed entered a period of unrest which will not be resolved until the prince of peace himself (Jesus) returns. Which is not to say that they won’t experience a brief period of peace when the anti-Christ is revealed.

Many were expecting the rapture this past feast of Trumpets leaving many disappointed and scratching their heads wondering just exactly where we are on God’s prophetic calendar. And, I will say it again as I did in my last post- where we are of course is right on schedule. Which in my humble opinion is the of the opening of the sixth seal. And here’s why:

The Fourth and Fifth Seals

“When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, Come!’ I looked and there before me was a pale horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague and by the wild beasts of the earth” Revelation 6:8

After looking at this verse closely, I feel sure that we are seeing the events of the fourth seal in effect at this very time. For who do we know that is presently killing with the sword? Ruthlessly beheading people – Isis. Who is dominating and causing terror across roughly a quarter of the earth?  Isis (and by extension Islamic terrorists). Who is causing famine and hunger with the displacement of vast amounts of people?  Isis. And, who but Isis could be described as wild beasts of the earth? For the Greek word for beast is therion which besides meaning a wild animal can also be rendered (according to Strong’s Concordance) as a “brutal” man – savage, bestial, and ferocious in nature. Which given the extreme brutality demonstrated equally against men, women and children makes perfect sense – hence the opening of the fifth seal.

“When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, ‘ How long, Sovereign Lord Holy and True until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?’ Then each one of them was given a white robe and they were told to wait a little longer until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed.” Revelation 6: 9-11

Yes, we may well be waiting for the opening of the sixth seal. And unlike the fourth seal which seems confined at least for this moment in time to a quarter of the earth – the sixth seal will affect the entire globe with an earthquake so massive, so severe that every mountain and island will be removed (moved, set in motion, shaken) from its place. An event so powerful that men cry out to be hidden from the wrath of the Lord. A earthquake so massive that only a cosmic disturbance such as a  Planet X type of event could cause destruction on this kind of scale. And that’s just the beginning.

In closing, I would like to draw your attention to the new name I have selected for my blog (Heaven Bound). You will still be able to find me by typing in “Cindy by the sea” but, since I am no longer technically “by the sea” – I thought it might be time for a name change hence the new title. God willing, I will be posting more on this sometime in the near future (details regarding name change and a little bit more about me) but, until then, as always –

“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. Interesting observations. We can only watch and pray. We are on God’s timetable and as you said right on schedule.

  2. i sure appreciate your insights cindy. being stayed upon Jehovah, being guided by His Eternal Word and Spirit, is the only way we can interpret these times we are living in, with the Light and the Strength to follow our Master the Lord Jesus, come what may. God, the Ancient of Days, is Faithful to the end of days! praise His Holy Name.


  3. Cindy, I really DO like your new blog name!!

    • Thank you Steve! I’m pleased that you like it.

  4. There is one final sign our Lord gave to us, and it could only truly be understood in this final generation.

    Luke 21,28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

    This sign is specifically for our time as no other generation walked around looking down. No other generation could know that these things begin to happen like this one. No other generation had a cell phone. Look around you, how many people do you see looking down? At any given moment in todays world there are more people looking down at their cell phone than were people on the planet in 33 AD.

    As for the rapture… Isaac Newton did a study on the 7 weeks as written in the book of Daniel. I didn’t know this until a couple weeks ago, as I did a study of the same 7 weeks in the 90’s. The prophecy hinges on the phrase “from the going forth of the command to rebuild, and restore Jerusalem”. We know the combined weeks was fulfilled with the first coming, but like Newton I always felt there was more to it because the weeks were divided 7&62. Like Newton, I came to the conclusion that the 7 weeks pertains to the second coming. The second time the command to restore for the soul purpose of benefit to the Jewish people was given on June 3, 1969 by the city council of Jerusalem. Exactly 49 prophetic 360 day years from that date brings us to the Day of Atonement 2017. Does this mean anything? I don’t know, but my heart tells me our Lord is very close, and the troubles forecast for us Christians is at hand. I look to this date with hope yet expect Him any day. Our Lord told us he would return when we least expect it.

    So brethren, take heart and keep looking up. The King is coming!

  5. Love your posts, Cindy. I have always thought the martyred Saints, referred to at the opening of the fifth seal were martyred during the Tribulation. But it just hit me while reading this- if the Tribulation had started, judgement would be in full swing.. There would be no reason to ask ‘how long?’ Also, I’m struck by how Saints on earth echo those in Heaven. I know everyday I wonder ‘how long?’

    • Thanks Leslie and you make a great point – if this seal did not open until after the start of the tribulation – why indeed ask how long. Blessed to be watching and waiting with you sister! Many blessings! Cindy

  6. Thanks, Cindy, for sharing your insights. Always deep and meaningful.
    Great choice for the new blog name!
    By the way, do you know if Art from New Wineskins still publishes these days?
    The link you have comes up with a 404 error… I always appreciated his thoughts too.
    Australia (By The Sea.. 🙂 )

    • Hi Martin ( by the sea) – I like that – by the sea, I mean. You know that is a good question. Every now and then I get some thing short in my e-mail that is by Art from New Wineskins. But, I was not aware that his blog address was not working. I just tried it and you’re right, it doesn’t come up. I also tried googling it and could not find it. If I get anything else from him, I will check where it is coming from and let you know. Anyone out there with any information on this? Art was always one of my favorites and in the early days of my blog one of my greatest encouragers. I was hoping he would write in length again, but maybe not. Glad you like the name Martin and please stay in touch!
