Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/18/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 37:1-17

SBC logo 204x204Description: God often uses things in our life to prepare us for a road that He will have us walk.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which we see God preparing Joseph – Jacob’s second youngest son, who’s now 17 years old – for the trials that await him. God sends Joseph dreams that we all know will one day encourage his heart, but presently seem to do nothing but drive a wedge of further bitterness into his already divided family.

It’s in the trials we face, though, that God’s gracious hand leads us every step of the way, not only during – but as we’ll learn – before.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/11/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 36

SBC logo 204x204Description: What happens when the wicked prosper and the righteous suffer? … Material success? Worldly prosperity?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which we see the line of Esau – the rejected line – prosper in an incredible way; while Jacob – whom God had named “Israel” or the “Prince of God” – watches from the sideline, trusting God for something far greater than all the accolades the world can give.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/04/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 35

SBC logo 204x204Description: Have you ever been away a long time from home?  Perhaps a month, or even a year? Well, Jacob had been gone for 30 years, and his homecoming brought with it pleasure along with pain.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao returns to the pulpit – after having been away himself for a time to mourn the loss of his son, Isaiah.

He continues with our study in the book of Genesis and reminds us that when it comes to pleasure and pain, most things in life are a mixture of the two. But take note: God is not only with us in our pleasure, He too is with us in our pain… and He proves sufficient for all that He brings into our life.

How We Demonstrate Hope [1 Peter 1:13-16]

January 28, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons
Sermon Notes

Date: 01/28/2018

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:13-16

Description: Holiness gets a bad rap in our society.

For some, it is one more difficulty in a life already filled with struggle. For others, it is a means of justifying their own sense of superiority to the rest of the world.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back guest preacher Peter Montoro from Westside Baptist Church, pinch-hitting for Pastor Monty as he and his family take a much needed respite in the wake of his son, Isaiah’s, death.

In our message, Pastor Montoro shows us that holiness, rightly understood, is neither of these things mentioned at the beginning, but rather a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate the hope that we have in Christ. In the end, holiness is not about an upturned nose but about uplifted eyes.

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 10:12-13

Description: Temptation. We all know what it’s like to face it – and we all know what it’s like to give in to it.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we’re pleased to welcome back to our pulpit guest preacher Peter Montoro from Westside Baptist Church, as Pastor Monty and his family take a much needed break to connect and mourn the loss of their child, Isaiah Gregory.

In our message, Pastor Peter reminds us that when it comes to temptation, the Scriptures teach – though we will never be safe from falling – we are always enabled to stand when, instead of looking to ourselves, we look to Jesus.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Job 9:32-35;Heb 4:14-16; Matt 26:36-40

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

Alter Ego:

If God can prevent our suffering then why doesn’t He?

Scandia Host: That’s a good question.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao steps to the pulpit once again following his son, Isaiah’s, tragic death… to wrestle with this. “How can we go to God for comfort when ultimately, God is the one who could have prevented it and has therefore ordained our pain?”

Alter Ego: Exactly! That’s what I want to know.

Scandia Host: Well, you better pull up a pew and take a listen.

Three Ways God Speaks to Us [Psalm 19:1-14]

January 7, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons
Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/07/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Psalm 19

SBC logo 204x204Description:

Alter Ego: Believing in God is utter nonsense. It’s ridiculous! Anyone who does has obviously checked his intelligence at the door. I mean how can someone believe in a God they can’t even see?

Scandia Host: That was pretty good.

Alter Ego: Thanks, I’ve been practicing.

Scandia Host: Sadly, though, too many people believe this way — so much so that they have their own groups.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the book of Psalms to show us that  even the heavens declare His name. They speak of His Glory, His Greatness, His Goodness, and His Grace. Nevertheless, even though God is shouting His existence into creation, a person with perfect vision can still be too blind to see it.

Notes:

Three Ways God Speaks to Us

  1. Heavens
  2. Hands
  3. Heart

Challenge: 

If you are one who is unsure of God, consider seeking to know Him. Open a Bible to the book of John, ask God to reveal Himself, and read the text with an open mind. It might just prove to be the most exciting decision of your life.
