The Day of Simon

We live in a time period that undeserving leaders get praised and even receive a holiday to honor them. Proverbs 28:2 For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.” Since our people are oblivious of God’s law anyone could become their leader. Many are deceived easily into the admiration of men, to the point that they worship them and are led astray towards destruction. Isaiah 9:16 “For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.”

If this is the case, how then can we be so sure about celebrating this feast that bears the name of Simon Thassi (Maccabee)? This celebration is not about the admiration of a man. Contained within our history is the evidence that “by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged”. The Heavenly Father gave the nation of Israel (known today as so called Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans) victory over the Greeks who tried to quickly root them out. Hence the name of the feast is to commemorate the time that the Hasmonean dynasty was established through wisdom in the time of adversity. Our forefathers sought righteousness and preserved the Bible and the way of life that continued until the great leader. There is much that we could learn from our forefathers that sacrificed their life for this truth and believed in the prophecies. Ultimately, that our great leader is Christ, who was faithful and provided an example for us to follow. 1st Maccabees 14:41 Also that the Jews and priests were well pleased that Simon should be their governor and high priest for ever, until there should arise a faithful prophet;”
