Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/31/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews, CoronaVirus

Key Text: Hebrews 4:1-11

Description: Their wandering the desert floor for forty years not only provides us with a great WARNING, but a great PROMISE: the promise of rest.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us that even Joshua and Caleb — the two faithful spies of the Wilderness Generation who were able to enter Canaan — did not receive this “promised rest.”

For it would be the “Greater Joshua,” Jesus the Son of God, Who would be the Champion for His people and complete His work to enter into His rest; and we, if we are partakers of Him, of Christ — having received the Good News — enter, in faith, into this rest that only He alone deserves.

The Sermon to the Hebrews: “a first century podcast” [Hebrews 1:1 — 13:25]

Sermon Notes

Date: 01/24/2021

Preacher: Josh Peglow, guest preacher

Key Text: Hebrews 1-13

Description: If podcasting is roughly defined as “time-shifted media,” and modern scholars believe that the book of Hebrews was actually a sermon instead of a text… then one could argue that the Bible’s “delivery” of the book of Hebrews is one of the earliest podcasts!! [spoof “Epistle Podcast”]

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ Josh Peglow answers the last minute call to stand behind the pulpit as Pastor Monty nurses a disabling case of lumbago and shares with us that the public reading of an entire text in this way was how it was done in the earliest days of the church.

Actually, all the New Testament epistles were meant to be read aloud to the congregation and then passed on to neighboring churches… a practice that promoted a unity of understanding in that together everyone could receive the message, The Word of God.

Don’t Harden Your Hearts [Hebrews 3:12-19]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/17/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews, CoronaVirus

Key Text: Hebrews 3:12-19

Description: If he was known for anything, the Pharaoh of the Exodus was known for his hardened heart that was calloused to hear the word of the Lord. This hardened heart cost him his kingdom and his son… and finally his life.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and tells the sad continuation of this story: even the entire Israelite generation — the Hebrews who witnessed Pharaoh’s demise — would not believe the word of the Lord either and hardened their hearts as well.

Pharaoh perished in the Red Sea, while they were buried in the wilderness… on the wrong side of Jordan.

Sermon Notes

Date: 01/10/2021

Preacher: Josh Peglow, guest preacher

Key Text: James 3:13-18

Description: 

Avg Guy: Oh to be wise. Wisdom is such a good thing!

SBC Host: It is… if the source is right.

Avg Guy: Huh?

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, Josh Peglow, fills in at the pulpit and shows us that wisdom — as the book of James lays out — can come from above… or from below.

And therefore, the child of God must be on guard to desire and pursue true Christian wisdom which eschews prideful strife and promotes peace.

Don’t Return to Egypt [Hebrews 3:7-11]

January 3, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/03/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews, CoronaVirus

Key Text: Hebrews 3:7-11; Psalm 95; Exodus 17:1-7; Num 13:32 – 14:38

Description:

The whole community was in an uproar, wailing all night long. All the People of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The entire community was in on it: “Why didn’t we die in Egypt? Or in this wilderness? Why has God brought us to this country to kill us? Our wives and children are about to become plunder. Why don’t we just head back to Egypt? And right now!”

Soon they were all saying it to one another: “Let’s pick a new leader; let’s head back to Egypt” (Num 14:1-4, MSG).

Why would the Israelites — in the middle of the Exodus, after having seen the Red Sea part and manna fall from heaven — want to return to Egypt?  

Why would they prefer slavery in the hands of cruel task masters, once again?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and states that when it comes to the Israelites wanting to return to Egypt, a more dramatic example of foolishness would be hard to find. 

But, incredibly, there is a greater example: those who turn back from Christ.
