Description: Many look at the book of Revelation like a puzzle or an encrypted message. And, provided they have the correct decoder ring, they can unlock the vast spiritual truth found there.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao nears the end of our study in the book of Revelation and teaches that this book is not about “unlocking” anything, but rather is designed to unveil what was once hidden.
This unveiling is actually what the word Apocalypse or Revelation means, and the final chapter makes this purpose clear.
For generations of Christians, these are words that have brought comfort, but for some, confusion.
After all, it has been over 2000 years…what does soon mean?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao nears the end of our study in the book of Revelation and shares that these words, when correctly understood, are neither discouraging nor confusing, but rather provide the church with an accurate view of the tension that exists between the expectation of Christ’s return and knowing He may yet tarry.
Description: The end of the curse, the healing of the nations, the restoration of the tree of life, the River of life, the presence of God, and light and life everlasting…and we find it all in the beginning of the last chapter of the Bible.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao reaches the final chapter in our study of the book of Revelation which brings to fruition of the themes of redemption that we saw back in Genesis…
…and the end is the glory of God and our complete enjoyment of Him.
Have you ever tried to describe something, but had no words for what it was…only for what it wasn’t?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and explains that describing the indescribable is what theologians are up against when attempting to describe God.
And what we’ll find is that this is also the case with the church in Heaven, as seen in the symbol of the New Jerusalem.
Description: The size, brilliance, and purity of the New Jerusalem is beyond our imaginations. Any description we can possibly think of falls short.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and explains that with this unfathomable vision of the Holy City that John give us, we are brought face to face with the reality of the size, brilliance, and purity of the church…
…God’s great work in redeeming a people to Himself, where all glory is given to Him and His glory is reflected throughout.
“And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory of God.”
— Rev 21:10-11a
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with the final portions of our study in the book of Revelation in which we read some of the most beautiful and striking imagery from John’s vision of the New Jerusalem, adorned as a bride, as a symbol of God’s people.
Description: As we near the end of the Bible, the fate of two women hang in the balance.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we are introduced to two women who will be be judged very differently: the harlot and the bride.
The harlot — the great prostitute and idolatress of Babylon — has been corrupting and poisoning the earth with her adultery, and now must face the fierce outpouring of the wrath of the Lamb.
While the the Bride of Christ has been redeemed and is permitted to dress in fine, dazzling white and clean linen — signifying the righteous and moral acts of the saints — as she readies herself for her groom… who is also the Lamb.
For one will stand as recipient of His wrath, the other, His love.
Description: In today’s message, we that a look at the second illustration that Paul provides on how a husband is to love his wife. That is, he is to love his wife as himself. This is bound up in a special unity that exists between husband and wife that doesn’t exist in any other relationship on earth. This unity is meant to reflect the unity that we have as the bride of Christ with our Lord and Bridegroom. What an amazing mystery.
Description: John, in chapter 2 tells us by the works of Christ Jesus, His deeds, that He indeed is God. To confirm this, John gives eight different sign miracles. All of these eight miracles are different, no two are alike. The first miracle that John presents is the miracle that takes place at a wedding in Cana.
Description: Because this is God’s church, He has given us marching orders on how it should be structured and run. In modern times, we have allowed the idea of pragmatism to enter the church and have started adopting business practices and other unbiblical methods. Paul tells us not only the leadership structure of a church but also the purpose of the leaders and it looks very different from what we usually see today.
