Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/12/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 10:11-18

Description:

GOD: “I REMEMBER YOUR SINS NO MORE.”

SBC Host: You heard Him. The finality and decisiveness of the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins is such that God declares that, in Christ, our sins are as good as forgotten.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that because of this, there will never be a need for another sin atoning sacrifice.

Christ has done it all!  …His words spoken at the cross, proven true: “It is finished.”

Obedience and Sacrifice [Hebrews 10:1-10]

September 5, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/05/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 10:1-10

Description:

SBC Host: Pretend you’re an Israelite, and I ask you to make a drawing of “the law,” what would you draw? …What image would best represent it?

Avg Guy: I have no idea.

SBC Host: Exactly.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that while we — being in possession of the New Testament — certainly have a richer, more complete idea of what the shadows of the law of the Old Testament pointed toward… we would struggle knowing what to draw too!

SBC logo 204x204

For even with this additional knowledge, we can’t fully grasp the expanse of the multiple facets of what the law actually entails — until we begin to see the lines of the sketch take shape: revealing an image of obedience and sacrifice that foreshadows the fullness of the reality of the law which we will one day completely see and experience in all of its glory.

For the sketch is Christ.

The Certainty of Death and Judgment [Hebrews 9:23-28]

August 29, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/29/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 9:23-28

Description: It’s a subject that most would rather ignore, but all agree is certain: DEATH. And inextricably linked to this inevitability is an even more avoided topic: JUDGEMENT.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us how the Scriptures necessarily tie death and judgment together. After all, death comes as the consequence of sin.

SBC logo 204x204

But we need to understand, death is NOT the end… rather, it’s the BEGINNING of eternity — an eternity where we either enter into the fullness of joy in the presence of our Heavenly Father, or an eternity filled with condemnation when we are cast into the lake of fire.

Because you see, which eternity becomes your destiny, hinges on that very topic most of us would rather not ponder: JUDGEMENT.

Things that Accompany Salvation [Hebrews 6:9-12]

May 9, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/09/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 6:9-12

Description:

“But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that accompany salvation….”

— Hebrews 6:9

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us that amid the stern warning that the author of Hebrews has been giving to his readers, in our passage today, he points to a promise…a promise from God.

SBC logo 204x204

But what are the these “better things” that accompany salvation???

And how do they assure us of God’s good works and faithfulness in our lives — and ultimately provide us with, what the author describes as, “full assurance of hope until the end”?

Jesus: The Source of Salvation [Hebrews 5:5-10]

March 14, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/14/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 5:5-10

Description:

Avg Guy: Okay… I just read Hebrews chapter 5, versus 5-10, and I have questions.

SBC Host: Let’s hear them.

Avg Guy: All right…

    1. If Jesus is God and knows all things then how can He learn obedience?
    2. What does God require by which men can be saved and have fellowship with Him?
    3. If Jesus is God and perfect, how can He be made perfect?
    4. And… What qualifies Jesus to be our Savior, anyway?

SBC Host: These are daunting questions, to be sure.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us that questions like these can leave our minds reeling if we have not acquired the theological framework to think through them.

How we answer these questions will say much about our understanding of Christ – the only Savior.

Our Great High Priest [Hebrews 5:1-6]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/28/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 5:1-6

Description: What does it mean that Christ is our Great High Priest? And how is His priesthood different from the priesthood of, say, Aaron?

These and other questions must be answered in order for believers to have assurance of their acceptance before God.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us that our assurance begins and ends in the person and work of Jesus Christ…

SBC logo 204x204

…And that His priesthood means that His completed work is being applied by our great Mediator and Savior resulting in our perseverance despite our weakness.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/21/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 4:14-16

Description: We know that Jesus was tempted as we are tempted… and yet, He was without sin.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and points out that Jesus’s temptation, and corresponding sinlessness, is supposedly mentioned in the book to help us draw near to Him, for He sympathizes.

The problem is that Jesus’ sinlessness makes us think Him unapproachable.

The question before us is…what are we missing???

Christ Our Sabbath Rest [Hebrews 4:1-11]

January 31, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/31/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 4:1-11

Description: Their wandering the desert floor for forty years not only provides us with a great WARNING, but a great PROMISE: the promise of rest.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us that even Joshua and Caleb — the two faithful spies of the Wilderness Generation who were able to enter Canaan — did not receive this “promised rest.”

SBC logo 204x204

For it would be the “Greater Joshua,” Jesus the Son of God, Who would be the Champion for His people and complete His work to enter into His rest; and we, if we are partakers of Him, of Christ — having received the Good News — enter, in faith, into this rest that only He alone deserves.

Don’t Harden Your Hearts [Hebrews 3:12-19]

January 17, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/17/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 3:12-19

Description: If he was known for anything, the Pharaoh of the Exodus was known for his hardened heart that was calloused to hear the word of the Lord. This hardened heart cost him his kingdom and his son… and finally his life. 

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and tells the sad continuation of this story: even the entire Israelite generation — the Hebrews who witnessed Pharaoh’s demise — would not believe the word of the Lord either and hardened their hearts as well.

Pharaoh perished in the Red Sea, while they were buried in the wilderness… on the wrong side of Jordan.

Don’t Return to Egypt [Hebrews 3:7-11]

January 3, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/03/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 3:7-11; Psalm 95; Exodus 17:1-7; Num 13:32 – 14:38

Description:

The whole community was in an uproar, wailing all night long. All the People of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The entire community was in on it: “Why didn’t we die in Egypt? Or in this wilderness? Why has God brought us to this country to kill us? Our wives and children are about to become plunder. Why don’t we just head back to Egypt? And right now!”

Soon they were all saying it to one another: “Let’s pick a new leader; let’s head back to Egypt” (Num 14:1-4, MSG).

Why would the Israelites — in the middle of the Exodus, after having seen the Red Sea part and manna fall from heaven — want to return to Egypt?  

Why would they prefer slavery in the hands of cruel task masters, once again? 

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and states that when it comes to the Israelites wanting to return to Egypt, a more dramatic example of foolishness would be hard to find. 

But, incredibly, there is a greater example: those who turn back from Christ.

Consider Jesus [Hebrews 3:1-6]

December 27, 2020

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/27/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 3:1-6

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.

SBC logo 204x204

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.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/20/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews, Advent Season

Key Text: Hebrews 2:9-18

Description:

SBC Host: [Bible Reading, Hebrews 2:10] “For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the originator of their salvation through sufferings. For bot—”

Avg Guy: Wait!!! Hold up for a moment! You can’t just read that without prompting some questions: What does it mean that it was *fitting* for Christ to suffer? And what does it mean that Christ was being made *perfect*?? …Isn’t Christ *already* perfect? …And hasn’t He *always* been perfect?

SBC Host: Fair enough.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast —on the Sunday before Christmas — Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us that, indeed, these and other questions arise from this Advent passage that we find in Hebrews chapter 2.

Avg Guy: Exactly.

December 13, 2020

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/13/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 2:5-9

Description: God created man in His image. He created him with an intent and purpose. But, was God’s intent thwarted by sin?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that some do say God’s initial intent was thwarted by sin, and yet God doesn’t throw man on the scrap pile of bad ideas.

SBC logo 204x204

Rather, He sets about redeeming man and restoring mankind to His original intent… showing us that His plans are never thwarted.

…And that’s good news for rebels like us.

Christ is Infinitely Superior to the Angels [Hebrews 1:4-14]

November 29, 2020

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/29/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 1:4-14

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.

SBC logo 204x204

However, in a sense, their struggle is our struggle, not because we think too highly of angels… but, perhaps, too lowly of Christ.

Christ: the Creator and High Priest [Hebrews 1:3]

November 22, 2020

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/22/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 1:3

Description: In the opening verses of Hebrews we read that Jesus Christ created the universe.  …A surprising statement, even for most Christians! After all, didn’t God the Father create everything? And to make matters more confusing, we read that Christ also upholds everything.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues taking us through our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us that this great truth of Christ creating and upholding everything — and, as we’ll learn, making purification for our sins —  not only gives us a clear picture of both Christ’s deity and humanity, but continues the author’s argument of presenting Christ as the Final and Perfect Revelation from God.

SBC logo 204x204

And the more we understand who He is, the more magnificent our redemption… in His eyes.

Description:

He’s the “Heir of all things.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and points out this unique description of Christ that appears in the second verse of the book.

SBC logo 204x204

What does it mean that Christ is the “Heir of all things”? 

Since He’s God, aren’t all things HIS anyways? 

And what does His being heir mean for us who are named as joint heirs or co-heirs of Christ?

And then culminates in the final and glorious revelation of Jesus Christ — to whom all other revelation pointed and finds there: “Yes and Amen.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao embarks on a new study in the book of Hebrews.

And while the background of the book may leave more questions than answers, the content does provide us an answer to the most important question arising from the Old Testament and from life itself.

…And that answer is Christ.

Avg Guy: [knocking on booth glass] Excuse me.

SBC Host: I’m kind in the middle of recording here.
