SBC logo 204x204Description: The “School of Hard Knocks” – a school that no one would voluntarily enroll… But sometimes God has other plans. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that oftentimes God uses trials and difficulties to grow and sanctify us – especially when our lives pattern that of Jacob: lives governed by worship of self and deceit. Yes…

When it comes to the School of Hard Knocks, we may desire to skip, but God ensures we attend.

…if for no other purpose than to build our character and faith in Him alone.

SBC logo 204x204Description: His bags were packed, and he had left for Haran to secure a wife; but what Jacob didn’t know was that God was already ahead of him to secure his heart. Yes…

Jacob was on “Operation Wife,” but God was on “Operation Jacob.”

SBC logo 204x204Description: The story of Jacob’s ladder has captured the attention of generations of people far and wide, as we hear in popular music and in church Sunday Schools across America…. yet the real meaning and significance of Jacob’s vision has largely remained unknown. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that in the New Testament, Jesus, Himself, tells us that He is the promise of Jacob’s Ladder and the only gate to heaven… And the only one who makes God to dwell with man.

Key Text: Genesis 28:1-9

SBC logo 204x204Description: Even with all of his deception, Jacob gets sent off by his father, Isaac, with the blessing of Abraham and the promises of the Covenant-Keeping God. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that, in addition, from this very deceiver God would name Israel. Because the story of the Patriarchs is not a story of sinlessness, but a story of grace…and it’s our story as well.

Key Text: Genesis 27:1-29

SBC logo 204x204Description: What is the spiritual atmosphere in your home? Sure, if you have children, you likely teach them about who God is and what He requires… with your words.

How often, though, do your ACTIONS teach for you things that you’d never say out loud?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which we’ll see that even in the midst of our failings, God is able to bring about His purposes; and that His grace is always evident as He providentially carries out His decrees.

The Wells of Promise [Genesis 26:18-35]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 07/02/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 26:18-35

SBC logo 204x204Description: Imagine, you live in the desert. Water is precious, difficult to come by. Your family and livestock depend on its very presence for life. The Lord has blessed you though, for you have a well dug a generation before that generously supplies this need. Your neighbor, however, is stirred with envy by your abundance and by what your well represents… so much so that he wishes you didn’t have it — so he takes it away, filling your well to the brim with dirt.

How do you respond? What’s your tendency in situations like this?

Do you fight? …or do you “lay down your arms?”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which we see this very scenario play out the in the life of Isaac… and it is through this narrative that we see that whether we choose to be fighters or pacifists is not really the issue… the issue is the attitude of our hearts, our understanding of the Gospel, and whether or not we really trust God.
