On the Hebraic calender, the fourteenth and fifteenth of Adar are celebrated as Purim, the Feast of Lots. The specific day on which Purim is celebrated depends on where you are located. The fourteenth is referred to as ‘in the open’ and the fifteenth is ‘within the walls’. Shushan was an ancient walled city in Persia, modern day Iran. Since the Old City of Jerusalem is within walls, Shushan Purim is celebrated on the 15th.

Esther 9:18, But the Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof, and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.

Purim, being on the middle of the lunar month, always has a full moon. I have had several people text, email or Facebook me about the incredible moon last night on Shushan Purim, which on the Gregorian Calendar was March 6, 2015. The photo below was taken from Colorado by one of my Facebook friends.

Worm MoonIt was so striking that even the local weatherman commented on it, calling it a “Worm Moon”. I am sure this information he receive was from the old Farmers Almanac, which carried the name from the American Indian Algonquin tribes who lived from New England to Lake Superior. They called the full March moon a ‘worm moon’ because the ground was becoming warmer and they observed this was the time when the worms began to move again and the Robins returned . It is also referred to as the “Full Fat Moon”, when the tapping of the Maple Trees begins.

Someone asked me if the color yellow meant anything. In the Bible the color yellow signify either good or bad:

  • Good: it refers to something of great value (Psalm 68:13)
  • Bad: it refers to leprosy, and leprosy refers to sin. (Leviticus 13:30, 32, 36)

Jerusalem suffered a terrible terrorist attack on Friday morning, Shushan Purim. A Palestinian rammed his car into a light rail train station after plowing into a group of female Border Police officers in northern Jerusalem, wounding five officers and an Israeli civilian. The terrorist, Udaayi Salayma from east Jerusalem, was shot seriously wounded by a Border Guard. A large meat-cleaver was found on his body after the assault, which he attempted to use after crashing his car. (Arutz-7/Ynet/Reuters)

Could the full yellow moon mean the iniquity is full? Watch and Pray! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, you will be blessed.
