Mediator, Intercessor, and Friend

June 29, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/29/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 15-17

Description:  Eliphaz speaks to Job a second time and his speech becomes more attacking.  Eliphaz tells Job he is sinning right now and that he stand condemned by his own words.

Job continues to maintain his integrity and trust in God.  Remarkably Job cries out for a Mediator who would intercede with God on Job’s behalf and act as a witness and even be Job’s friend.  Only one could fill this role and that is Christ Himself.

Though He slay me, I will hope in Him

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/22/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 11-14

Description:  Zophar is the third friend to speak.  His speech ends cycle one in the dialogue portion and in the end he adds nothing new to the views of Job’s other two friends.  Zophar is insulting in his attack as he basically calls Job a windbag and a scoffer.

Job continues to declare his innocence and calls for a trial before God.  In the end he continues to trust in God and says, “though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.”

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/15/2014

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Acts 8:30

Description: There are a surprising number of men in the Bible that are remembered as running. In today’s message we find Philip on a collision path with a power man in a chariot. This encounter was very much of the Lord and resulted in that man’s salvation.

Are you He who is to come?

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/08/2014

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Matthew 11

Description: While in prison John the Baptist struggled with assurance as to who Jesus actually was and why He was not conducting Himself the way John thought He should.

We often have the same struggle when God seemingly doesn’t work things out in our lives the way we think He should.  Our message today will look in depth at this persepetive.

The Gospel in Calamity

June 1, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/01/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 8-10

Description:  We’ve come to the second of Job’s friends, Bildad. Bildad doesn’t have the diplomatic skills of the older Eliphaz, instead he councils Job in his blunt cruelty.

Job is brought so low in his struggle that he cries aloud for a mediator, one who could stand between him and God. Job’s calamity and pain point out a desire that could only be fulfilled by Christ.

Miserable Comforters

May 25, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/25/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 4-7

Description:  In chapter 4 the first of Job’s friends, Eliphaz, breaks the silence and provides council to Job.  It is miserable council.  Eliphaz believes that calamity only follows sin and so has already concluded that Job is in sin and calls for his repentance.

Job is discouraged by his friend and eventually turns his plead to God.  In fact, Job is so discouraged that he requests God turn His gaze away from him and let him die in peace.
