Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/27/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 45

Description: We’ve waited, and now it’s time. Joseph will reveal himself to his brothers. …And in doing so we witness another “revealing”: two of the most important truths that every Christian should know.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where he shows how both of these truths powerfully unfold before us in the life of Joseph and his reconciliation with his brothers. The first is that God is sovereign – even over evil; the second, that God can bring healing and restoration to the most broken of relationships.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/20/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 44

Description: The final test of Joseph’s brothers has come, and only one chapter remains before their long-awaited reunion. But before that, the brothers will have to face their greatest temptation yet.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where we see Judah once again arising to lead his brothers successfully through Joseph’s chain of tests – and by doing so, showing himself as the new leader of the family.

Judah is not only demonstrating leadership that guides, but, as we will see, leadership that reunites… for it is through his selfless actions that Joseph – the highest-ranking official of Egypt – will soon be in a place where he is able to finally reveal himself as their brother.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/13/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 43

Description: The tests of Joseph’s brothers continue, and in it all, we see the next leader of the family rising to the top.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where we see this rising leader guiding the brothers through Joseph’s next series of tests. But, perhaps more importantly, we also see this leader pledging himself – not another – for the safe return of the brothers from Egypt – especially Benjamin.

Whereas Jacob would not let his sons go with Reuben leading, he does under this new leadership… the leadership of Judah.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/06/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 42

Description: It’s been 20 years, and Joseph finally gets to see his brothers again.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that this time the situation is quite different for Joseph: he now sits on the throne as the highest ranking official of Egypt, and his brothers – not recognizing him as the very brother they sold into slavery – are bowing at his feet.

What is Joseph to do??? Should he trust them after what they did? Should he sentence them to imprisonment… or worse? And, more importantly, how will he know – if after 20 years – they have changed?

The Secret of Gethsemane [Mark 14:32-42]

April 29, 2018

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/29/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Mark 14:32-42

Description: “He plunged into a sinkhole of dreadful agony.” That’s how one Bible translation describes how Jesus felt during His prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the book of Mark to explore this prayer that theologians have endlessly pondered. The King James translation says that while praying in the garden, Jesus was “sore amazed” – prompting Martin Luther to describe it as the most astonishing statement in the Bible. SBC logo 204x204

But all this agonizing stress seems out of context for Jesus, doesn’t it? After all, He is the God-man who spoke the universe into existence. But as we examine the situation, it becomes shamefully obvious that He did this for us. All this happened because of our sin. And because of His deep love for us, He surrendered His will and underwent the horrific experience. And then we realize, it’s not out of context for Him at all.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/22/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 41

Description: Out of all the chapters in the book of Genesis, forty-one can be argued to be the most pivotal… but it is also the most misunderstood.

Gen 41: Most Pivotal… Most Misunderstood

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that when we incorrectly interpret Genesis 41, we see how a faithful man can climb the corporate ladder.  But, when we correctly interpret Genesis 41, we see how to remain faithful to a sovereign God and to set our eyes on a kingdom that is not of this world.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/15/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 40

Description: 

“Do not interpretations belong to God?”

This was the question the imprisoned Joseph asked his two cellmates when they awoke saddened, not being able to make sense of the dreams they just had.

SBC logo 204x204
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis to illuminate the significance that this small glimpse into Joseph’s life tells us. It tells us that in even in the midst of betrayal, kidnapping, slavery, and now imprisonment … Joseph’s faith was still in God – the same God who sees every injustice and who is always in control.
