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.

 

 

 

 

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is coming to Washington DC on Sushan Purim. Hmmm. Interesting timing!

The Holiday of Purim is the celebration of God overturning the decree of wicked Haman to kill all the Jews in 127 provinces as recorded in the Book of Esther. Not just to kill all the Jews, but to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day. The celebration is to ‘remember’ how God answered their prayers and saved them from destruction. Such a wonderful reason to celebrate! Sushan Purim is the 2nd day of Purim celebrated outside the city.

But there are still those who want to see Israel wiped off the map, pushed into the sea.

I was working on my Signs in the Heavens manuals today for an upcoming meeting and an old article from Greg Killian caught my eye. It was an article from March 11, 1998 about a giant asteroid that was expected to hit the earth in 2028 and it was retracted the next day. The amazing thing about my eye catching the article is that March 11 that year was Purim and it was retracted on Sushan Purim.

Greg Killian wrote “Purim is a celebration of the concealed hand of God, when everything is not as it appears to be. This asteroid report follows this theme perfectly. I strongly suspect that we were being warned in a way which will not cause panic. If you want to learn more, go and study about Purim.” Greg is still teaching online about Biblical Signs in the Heavens on betemunah.org.

Asteroid QQ47 was found in 2003 and expected to hit the earth March 21, 2014. They later retracted that calculation, saying it had changed position.

Still, pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May President Obama not make any unholy alliances with Mr Abbas.
