Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/02/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 3:10-11

Description: 

“Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” – Revelation 3:10

Revelation 3:10 – one of the most contested verses in this book of the Bible.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation by taking a moment to unpack this particular verse. SBC logo 204x204

Let’s face it, while everyone in the church agrees that Christ is coming again, not everyone agrees on how it plays out. And while there are multiple interpretive frameworks regarding the book of Revelation, how you interpret what it means for “God to keep us” reveals much about the framework you operate from.

Missionary Update

Missionary David Hardin and his family stopped by to worship with us this Sunday. Many years ago, David grew up in our church, and now he is a Missionary to the Tarahumara people of the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico through Mexico Medical Missions. Though he did not preach today, he did give us an update, and with that an unexpected insight into something we all too easily take for granted.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/04/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 2:18-29

Description: You either are acceptable to God or you are acceptable to the world…you can’t be both.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us that perhaps the biggest problem facing the church in America today is the pressure to compromise. SBC logo 204x204

For as the culture continues to decline morally, the pressure rises to succumb to the teachings of this world and become acceptable to those around us.

When You Live Where Satan Dwells [Revelation 2:12-17]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/28/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 2:12-17

Description: As Christians we all stand ready to bat down blatant error. We wouldn’t hesitate to spring into action if someone in the church rebuffed justification by faith alone or denied the deity of Christ. …But what if the error was more subtle? …a small compromise that was just enough to give a foothold to the Devil.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us that while we are all busy gearing for the full frontal attack, the truth is, we forget to guard our flanks. SBC logo 204x204

And when we do, we fail to see the seduction from without, or perhaps more sadly, the false teaching from within — giving permission to those small compromises that we think probably won’t matter.

Be Faithful Unto Death [Revelation 2:8-11]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/14/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 2:8-11

Description: Some of the poorest people are actually the richest… and some of the richest are the poorest.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shows us that just as the world is not always as it seems, the city of Smyrna was not always as it seemed: Christians were being tortured and killed, and yet they were victorious and obtained the victor’s crown while eternal judgment awaited those in power who were wreaking havoc upon the church.
SBC logo 204x204
As Christians we are not promised to be rescued from life’s trials, but rather to persevere through them… and that God always knows and sees all that we are going through because of Him. And with that, He promises to those that are faithful and complete the race and overcome, that the Crown of Life awaits.
