Sermon Notes

Date: 10/21/2018

Preacher: Kris Baines, guest pastor

Key Text: Mark 1:29-39

Description: If a TV crew followed you around for 24 hours, would it be worth watching?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome to our pulpit New Zealand Pastor, Kris Baines, who shows that we can learn a lot from reviewing the day in the life of someone… especially when that someone is Jesus Christ.

For when we review a 24 hour period of Jesus’ ministry in the book of Mark, we find Him to be a man of compassion, a man of service, a man of prayer, and a man of purpose. And that, in turn, encourages us to be the same… in His strength, for His glory.

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

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.

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.

Deacons: Love Takes Action [Acts 6:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:8-13]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/07/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Acts 6:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:8-13

Description: 

Host: Do you know what a deacon is?

Average Guy: Not really. I just checked the Internet, though, and it said it was someone who was a good friend – one that you could call a brother – and while he might be a pain at times, he’ll be there to help you out if, and when, life takes a turn for the worse.

Host: Not really what I was looking for… but it’s a start. You’d better listen up.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes a break from our study in Revelation to address a question that most Christians don’t have an answer for: What is a deacon?

And this is a question that is especially relevant for Scandia Bible Church, because today we just got another one.

Intolerance, Love, and Hate [Revelation 2:1-7]

September 30, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

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]

September 23, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

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]

September 16, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

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.

The Lord God Almighty! [Revelation 1:7-8]

September 9, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

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.
