Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job

Description:  In order to correctly apply the book of Job to our lives, we must take into account the entire book, including the epilogue.  It is in the final 11 verses of Job where we learn of his vindication and restoration and the condemnation of his three friends who have spoken falsely.  While Job never receives the answer to the question of why he is suffering, what he does receive is far greater.

Vindication [Job 42]

September 14, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/14/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 42

Description:  As Job is confronted with the wisdom of God, he no longer seeks vindication but repents in dust and ashes.  God’s anger is kindled against Job’s friends who must go to Job to receive vindication with Job acting as their mediator.  After this, God vindicates Job and all that he has lost and in so doing God vindicates His own name as well, showing that His wisdom and ways are beyond our understanding that He is righteous and right in all that He does.

Description:  Everyone is silenced as God speaks.

God answers Job out of the whirlwind, disclosing His greatness and majesty in all of creation.  Job is instructed in wisdom that begins with him understanding that God is great and greatly to be praised.  God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts, and His ways are higher than our ways.  Job is humbled as God prepares him to be vindicated and restored.

Wisdom from a Young Man [Job 32-37]

August 10, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/10/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 32-37

Description:  A surprising introduction into the story is a lengthy speech form a young man named Elihu. Elihu, although aroused by anger against Job and his three friends, doesn’t unfairly accuse Job but reminds him of his former proclamations of faith and serves to prepare the way for Job to hear from God Himself.

“The fear of the Lord, that is wisdom…” [Job 28-31]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/03/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 28-31

Description:  In Job’s final speech, he comes very near his breaking point.  He remembers the past, laments his current situation, and comes close to defending himself self-righteously.  But God knows that Job is at the end of his strength and God will soon silence Job by answering him out of the whirlwind.

Date: 07/13/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 22-27

Description:  The third cycle of speeches is covered in this message.  This includes the final speech from Eliphaz, Bildad, and Job (Zophar does not speak in the final round.  Job wrestles with very difficult issues concerning the mystery of God’s wisdom and providence.  But it is here that Job finds some conclusions as well.  But the answers Job seeks will not be provided to him and will remain in question until the coming of Christ… Job’s Redeemer.

My Redeemer Lives! [Job 18-21]

July 6, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 07/06/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 18-21

Description:  The speeches in this second cycle become even more insulting.  Bildad in chapter 18 and Zophar in chapter 20 don’t hold back in their calling Job a wicked man.  But in the midst of it all, in chapter 19, Job makes one of the most profound statements of faith found in the entire Bible.  Job leaves off in chapter 21 knowing that the question of why the righteous suffer while the wicked prospers has not been answered and that his friends speeches have been nothing but falsehood.
