Redeeming the Ruthless [Isaiah 25:1-9; Ephesians 2:1-10]

April 12, 2020


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/12/2020, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Isaiah 25:1-9; Ephesians 2:1-10

Description: The prophet Isaiah painted a picture of the rebellion in the nations: a place of idolatry, injustice, and insurrection; a place where God is ignored and His followers mocked, as man sits in his citadels of strength.

…That is, until God brings man’s city to ruin and his citadels to rubble.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao virtually delivers a Resurrection Sunday Service to our church body as we watch from the safety of our homes during the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 and reminds us that during these times when God brings people low, we rejoice.

We rejoice because God does it to rescue the afflicted and to vindicate His people. But there’s another reason we rejoice…a scandalous reason.  SBC logo 204x204

God brings people low to make the proud humble and remove the strength of the mighty and bring the ruthless to their knees.

And most shockingly, He redeems the ruthless so that they too worship Him.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Psalm 46

Description: Imagine that The Plague has come to your city. People are sick and needing help… and yet, the only response from civil authorities is to tell everyone to run!

What would YOU do?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues his virtual preaching to our church body as we “stay home and stay healthy” during the Coronavirus Pandemic and asks us to ponder the described scenario: What WOULD you do?

Would you run? Would you stay to help?

Because, you see, how you answer these questions truly depends on WHAT, or WHO, you believe keeps you safe.

Why Did Jesus Need to Die? [Romans 3:23-24]

April 1, 2018


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/01/2018, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Romans 3:23-24

Description:

Why did Jesus go to the cross?

There are many reasons that Jesus went to the cross. There are human reasons such as Judas Iscariot betraying Him and the Sanhedrin wanting to kill him. …But those reasons see the cross from the perspective of man of things that happened to Jesus – they don’t ultimately answer the question “why.” Because obviously, He had escaped the grasp of evil men before.

SBC logo 204x204Today on our Easter Sunday Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao rightfully sharpens our thinking on this question and shows us that the cross wasn’t just a thing that happened …it was necessary. Jesus didn’t just go to the cross, He needed to go to the cross…He needed to die. For that was His purpose in taking on flesh. So perhaps a better question we need to ask is “Why did Jesus need to die?”

Good Friday Service 2018

March 30, 2018

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/30/2018

Description: Good Friday… arguably the most solemn day on the Christian calendar – a day that could hardly be classified as “good” just over 2000 years ago. …But from our vantage point – as we sit on this side of the Resurrection – there is no better way to describe it. 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we invite you to pull up a virtual pew, and join our little country church for our 2018 Good Friday worship service. May the mixture of scripture reading, congregational hymn singing, and church family instrumentals allow you to remember and rejoice in all that Christ has done on our behalf… and that it is indeed good.

The King Has Come [Luke 19:28-42]

March 25, 2018

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/25/2018, Palm Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Luke 19:28-42

Description: Jesus had just raised Lazarus from the dead, and the crowds were following Him as He descended into the royal city of Jerusalem – the King had arrived!

Today on this Palm Sunday, Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes us to the book of Luke to show us that as Jesus entered the city, the crowds cheered and lined the road with their coats and branches as they waved palms in the air in celebration of His arrival.  SBC logo 204x204

…But soon the cheering would stop.  Soon the “hosannas” would be replaced with “Crucify him!” – and for this, while the crowds shouted, Jesus wept.

What is the Gospel? [1 Corinthians 15]

April 16, 2017


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/16/2017, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 15

SBC logo 204x204Description: The Gospel is the central message of the church and the central figure of the message is Jesus Christ. Yet many in the church can’t define what this message is. Sometimes they even define it in ways that are the opposite to what the Scriptures reveal…ways that don’t lead sinners to salvation but leave them condemned with no good news.

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 5:7-8

SBC logo 204x204Description: Most Christians don’t associate Easter with Passover. But with some study, one can see how they are beautifully interwoven into God’s perfect tapestry. The parallel of the Passover Lamb and our Lord Jesus — the perfect sacrificial Lamb of God — helps clarify in our minds the wonder of God’s plan for the salvation of believers.

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 1

SBC logo 204x204Description: The doctrine of creation is not only under attack outside the church but from within as well.  Christians have attempted to fit “millions of years” into the Genesis account by doing hermeneutical gymnastics to Genesis Chapter 1.  The end result of these theories has been the undermining of not only the faith of countless Christians but the undermining of the Gospel itself!

The Value of Your Soul [Mark 8:35-37]

April 5, 2015

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/05/2015, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Mark 8:35-37

Description: Easter morning typically is filled with sermons speaking about Christ’s resurrection from the grave.  In this Easter sermon we move our focus onto those who are without a saving relationship to our resurrected Lord Jesus.  The things of the world, and our own security in the world, tend to capture those who are unsaved.  Our text reflects the very words of Jesus on this matter.

Your Sorrow Will Be Turned into Joy! [John 16:16-22; 20:1-31]

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/20/2014, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: John 16:16-22; 20:1-31

Description:  In this sermon, we look at the promise Jesus made to His disciples in John chapter 16.  He told them that they would be filled with sorrow even as the world rejoices, but that He would turn their sorrow into Joy. Then we look at John chapter 20, to see the fulfillment of that promise and the benediction of peace that Christ pronounced upon His church on that first Easter Sunday and continues to pronounce upon His people today.

The Priest and the Filthy Robe [Luke 24 and Zechariah 3:1-10]

March 31, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/31/2013, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Luke 24 and Zechariah 3:1-10

Description:  Easter Sunday, the resurrection of Christ, solves the problem of tension that existed among the Old Testaments prophets concerning the coming of the Messiah.  The prophets prophesied that the coming Messiah would be a suffering servant who would be scourged, smitten, beaten, and pierced and yet he would also be a conquering king.  How could these two apparent contradictions in description possibly be?  The answer is found in Easter.
