Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/30/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 2:1-7

Description: The Ephesians were intolerant and haters… and for that, Jesus praised them.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us that in Christ’s letter to the church of Ephesus, He, indeed, did praise them for their intolerance to evil and hating the things He hates.

But most of us don’t consider intolerance a virtue, nor think that there would be something that Jesus actually hates… let alone, wants us to hate too. But that’s exactly what we read.

And in the midst of this, we are told to love.

Sound contradictory? Not at all. SBC logo 204x204

Let’s love the things that God loves and hate the things that God hates… and in so doing, know what it is like to walk in Truth.

How do you picture Christ? [Revelation 1:10-20]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/23/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 1:10-20

Description: What do you think Christ looks like? …Like what you see in the movies? …or the illustrations in children’s Bibles?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and points out that while we all have a picture of Christ in our mind’s eye, the Apostle John gives us a picture of Christ and that is very different from the one we have in our imagination.

What we’ll find is that John is not interested in telling us what Christ looks like; his purpose is to show us what Christ IS LIKE!

And that’s a message that the church needs in every age.

Christ in the Midst of His Church [Revelation 1:9-13a]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/16/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 1:9-13a

Description: “And I [John] heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying, ‘Write in a book what you see, and send it to the seven churches….’ I turned… [and] saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shows us that it was not written by an academic with little practical experience or a lofty leader from an ivory tower: Rather the Lord Jesus gave the Revelation to John the apostle who was a fellow partaker in “the tribulation, kingdom, and perseverance, which are in Jesus.”  SBC logo 204x204

And like John, we too can persevere because Christ is in the midst of His church.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/09/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 1:7-8

Description: There’s no need to purchase Cliffs Notes for the book of Revelation, because the Bible already built it in… and you’ll find it contained in ONE verse.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and explains that after the weeks and weeks we’ll spend sifting through this great book, if all we remember is this one verse, we will probably know enough for whatever trials may come during our lives.

The verse: chapter 1, verse 7.SBC logo 204x204

For what we’ll learn is that it is the keynote of the book, and it tells us that Jesus will return and will come to bring final redemption along with final judgment.

Revelation — Why is this book so different? [Revelation 1:1-3]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/05/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 1:1-3

Description: The book of Revelation is difficult to understand. Right? It’s cryptic and strange. Not so for the its first readers.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes us to the opening verses of the book of Revelation, as our study of this oft misunderstood last book of the Bible gets underway, and explains that to the first readers some 2000 years ago, this book was essentially what we would recognize today as a “New York Times Best Seller.”SBC logo 204x204

How we approach this book matters greatly. And just as we would immediately understand that “Once upon a time…” begins a fairy tale, the first readers of Revelation immediately understood that they were reading apocalyptic literature… and in order for us to understand it, we must too.
