Description: There is perhaps no one in the mind of the Jew who has as much distinction as Moses:
He was miraculously saved as an infant, raised with royalty, sent to liberate his people, and spoke with God face to face — not to mention that he was the writer of the Torah, as well as the mediator of the Old Covenant.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and concedes that it’s a pretty long resume that put Moses in this position of honor.
But then in steps Christ who brings a better covenant …and in order to argue this position, the author of Hebrews demonstrates that Jesus is superior to even the great covenant mediator, himself, Moses.
Description: In the first section of the book of Hebrews the author labors a point:
Christ is infinitely superior to the angels.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that it’s a point which may make us wonder, because our thoughts of angels are not the same as the first readers of this book.
However, in a sense, their struggle is our struggle, not because we think too highly of angels… but, perhaps, too lowly of Christ.
Description: Fire and brimstone preaching… a style that has certainly has fallen out of contemporary fashion. And yet, the Bible is chock-full of explicit and implicit warning against the coming wrath of God.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and points out that whether the message is read from the Bible, or preached from the pulpit, countless people hear it and delay bowing the knee before God in repentance.
The day is coming, however, when it will be too late to repent… and both the believer and the non-believer will be harvested: one to eternal reward — the other, eternal damnation.
Description: We’ve read the seven letters to the churches of Asia Minor… which when taken in totality are a letter to the church as a whole, as well.
…So if that’s the case, how do you get the eyes of the church off of their circumstances as they look to the Lord for strength in all their trials?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues are study in the book of Revelation and helps us answer that question by pointing us to God in His splendor and sovereignty.
You see, the bigger God is to us, the smaller are the assaults of this present evil age… not because they are insignificant, but rather because they are put into perspective next to the God of the universe who is worthy of all praise.
Description: The cross: a Christian symbol evoking comfort and love for many, many people. But for some, it stands as a graphic warning sign declaring danger ahead.
Today on Scandia Bible Church podcast, Elder Keith Barker exhorts that the cross is SHOUTING that God hates our sin — so much so that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to pay the price for it by hanging on the cross. His blood was a ransom for us — freeing us from an eternity separated from Him, our loving Heavenly Father.
Yes, the cross serves as a merciful word of comfort to Christians of God’s finished work but, to the unsaved, a stark shout of danger.
Description: In the book of Genesis, who are the “sons of God” and who are the Niphilim?
… Questions that many have asked, and it’s why this passage may be the most controversial passage in the entire book of Genesis. And while many, over the years, have offered answers as to who they think the sons of God and Niphilim are… what we’ll find is that the best answers are the ones that best fit the context of the book of Genesis.
Description: It’s easy to become fascinated by the topic of End Times. The challenge is that many respected theologians disagree about this section of the Book of Revelation. Today we will present one view and seek to support it from other Scriptures. And while this view may not agree with yours, if the result of listening to this message leads you to further study, then the time is well spent. The caution, however, is that good is often the enemy of best. …And the in-depth study of Christology is always the best.
Description: Jude wants to draw a strong connection between the false teachers who have infiltrated the church in his day, to those who are known to have incurred the judgment and wrath of God. These lessons are just as applicable to the modern church as they were to those who worshiped in the first century.
Description: There is so much confusion over the concept of Spiritual Warfare. Much of it stems from not understanding our position as believers in Christ and not understanding all that Christ has accomplished on our behalf. We need to remember that we fight from a position of victory and the battle has been won.
Description: The Bible is very clear about who is behind every bad thing that happens to individuals or families, or even nations. God’s Holy Word is the only absolute source of information on this topic and God has much to say about it.
Description: Even thought he was known as “The Teacher of Israel,” Nicodemus has his ignorance and unbelief of the scriptures exposed by Jesus. The truth that Jesus taught to Nicodemus and teaches the world today is “believe”.
Description: Nicodemus, a Jewish religious leader, came to Jesus with questions. As he complemented Jesus and acknowledged His miracles, wisdom, and that He was from God, Jesus challenged him. He told him that he must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God!
Description: Matthew begins with a genealogy, Mark with an OT prophecy and Luke, a personal note. But John begins with God speaking Himself into the world in the person of His own Son. The Son, identified here as the Word, is God (1:1). The Word became man (1:14) when Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary. The facts of His birth are described in the other Gospels. John states simply that the Word became flesh; that is, He became man in bodily form and in nature.
Description: The Good Shepherd is one of the thrusts of Biblical scripture. This illustration encompasses many ideas, including God’s care for his people and his discipline to correct the wandering sheep. The tendency of humans to put themselves into danger’s way and their inability to guide and take care of themselves apart from the direct power and leading of God is also reinforced with the metaphor of sheep in need of a shepherd.
