The Insanity of Christ [Philippians 1:21-30]

Sermon Notes

Date: 08/19/2018

Preacher: Colton Bennett, guest preacher

Key Text: Philippians 1:21-30

Description: 

“Now am I beginning to be a disciple. May it only be that I attain unto Jesus Christ, come fire and flood, grapplings with beasts, cuttings and manglings, wrenching of bones, hacking of limbs, crushing of my whole body…. The farthest bounds of the universe shall profit me nothing…. Him I seek, who died on our behalf; Him I desire, who rose again for our sake.”

— Ignatius of Antioch (35-107, earliest post-New Testament martyr)

There’s no doubt that Ignatius of Antioch was “all in” for Christ. How about you? Are you all in?SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we’re pleased to welcome to our pulpit, guest preacher from Kentucky, and up-and-coming pastor-to-be, Colton Bennett… who describes himself as “a follower of Jesus, lover of Liberty, and passionate voice when the world is silent.” And though he’s only 19 years-old, he has the wisdom-filled insight that though we may all WANT to be “all in” for Christ, the truth is that none of us are… and that is PRECISELY why we need Jesus.

Holiness [1 Peter 1:13-16]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/12/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:13-16

Description: 

Do you remember the Susan B. Anthony dollar? …You know the one that looked like a quarter.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible and draws our attention to a problem in America today: a lack of holiness.

Too often the church looks so much like the world, that those that are unsaved see no need to consider the claims of Jesus on their own lives. To them, they all look like quarters – but they’re really dollars. They don’t stand out because they’re lacking holiness.SBC logo 204x204

If by the saving grace of Jesus Christ you are now considered a “dollar”… act like one. Because as He clearly commands: “Be holy for I am holy.”

Revelation — Why is this book so different? [Revelation 1:1-3]

August 5, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/05/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 1:1-3

Description: The book of Revelation is difficult to understand. Right? It’s cryptic and strange. Not so for the its first readers.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes us to the opening verses of the book of Revelation, as our study of this oft misunderstood last book of the Bible gets underway, and explains that to the first readers some 2000 years ago, this book was essentially what we would recognize today as a “New York Times Best Seller.”SBC logo 204x204

How we approach this book matters greatly. And just as we would immediately understand that “Once upon a time…” begins a fairy tale, the first readers of Revelation immediately understood that they were reading apocalyptic literature… and in order for us to understand it, we must too.

Thy Kingdom Come! [Revelation — Introduction]

July 29, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 07/29/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Selected Text: Matthew 13

Description: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed….”

But the disciples – and everyone else in first century Palestine, for that matter – were expecting something quite different. In their minds it was to be a mustard tree…. big, not small…. conquering, war-like, not peaceful.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues the groundwork for our introduction to the book of Revelation and shares how Jesus revealed what the Kingdom of Heaven would be like through parables. And it was with these that He revealed there is a “now” part of the kingdom and a “not yet” part of the kingdom.

Yes, the kingdom will one day be like a mustard tree. It will one day bring forth a reward to the Lord’s faithful and a time of judgement to the Lord’s enemies… but not yet.

SBC logo 204x204

For now it must start small and grow, as God continues to tarry in His grace and mercy, and His kingdom continues to expand through the preaching of the Gospel of grace.

New Testament Eschatalogy: “This age and the age to come” (part 2) [Revelation — Introduction]

July 22, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 07/22/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Selected Texts: Matt 28:20; Romans 12:2; Ephesians 2:2; 1 Tim 6:17; Titus 2:12

Description: How you interpret the Bible matters. It’s called hermeneutics.

In the New Testament, Jesus and the disciples give us what’s been called the “Two-age Model.”

Today on the Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues laying the foundation for the introduction to our new study in the book of Revelation and underscores that if we are to have a correct starting place with this study, we must have correct hermeneutics.

SBC logo 204x204

Correctly, understanding the Two-Age Model will be like laying out rooms for us in a house… rooms in which as we can later place furniture – or details – we pick up along the way. Because, as we all know, if we start with the furniture, and later receive the layout, we may find – much to our frustration – that it simply does not fit.

New Testament Eschatalogy: “This age and the age to come” (part 1) [Revelation — Introduction]

July 15, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 07/15/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Selected Texts: Matt 12:22-32; Mark 10:24-30; Ephesians 1:18-23; Luke 20:27-36; Gal 1:3-4; 1 Cor 1:18-20; 2:1-8; 2 Cor 4:1-6

Description: 

It may be the most controversial book in the church today…

…and for most, the most confusing (not to mention, most intimidating): the book of Revelation.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao embarks upon a new study in this last book of the Bible and shares with us that despite today’s tension surrounding the text, for most of church history, the book of Revelation was a book of encouragement — encouragement to a suffering church trying to remain faithful in a world that opposed both her and her Lord.

The Death of the Patriarchs [Genesis 49:29 – 50:26]

July 8, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 07/08/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 49:29 – 50:26

Description: 

We’ve reached the end of the book of Genesis, and it ends with death…

…the death of Jacob and Joseph. It’s a stark reminder that the curse of Genesis chapter 3 is still upon mankind, even those called by God.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao concludes our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that though it ends with the reminder of the curse, it also ends, like Genesis 3, with hope as well…  Hope that the promises of God will one day be fulfilled, and that this dreadful curse will ultimately be destroyed at the consummation of Christ’s kingdom.
