The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse [Revelation 6:1-8]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/13/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 6:1-8

Description:

I watched while the Lamb ripped off the first of the seven seals. I heard one of the Animals roar, “Come out!” I looked—I saw a white horse. Its rider carried a bow and was given a victory garland. He rode off victorious, conquering right and left.

When the Lamb ripped off the second seal, I heard the second Animal cry, “Come out!” Another horse appeared, this one red. Its rider was off to take peace from the earth, setting people at each other’s throats, killing one another. He was given a huge sword.

When he ripped off the third seal, I heard the third Animal cry, “Come out!” I looked. A black horse this time. Its rider carried a set of scales in his hand. I heard a message (it seemed to issue from the Four Animals): “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, or three quarts of barley, but all the oil and wine you want.”

When he ripped off the fourth seal, I heard the fourth Animal cry, “Come out!” I looked. A colorless horse, sickly pale. Its rider was Death, and Hell was close on its heels. They were given power to destroy a fourth of the earth by war, famine, disease, and wild beasts.

(Rev 6:1-8, The MSG)

 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we are introduced to the four horsemen as we witness the opening of the scroll by the One who is worthy, King Jesus. SBC logo 204x204

While the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are sure to capture our imagination, and the imaginations of pop culture, few even know where these images come from — and even fewer, what they mean. But in the midst of this confusion, Christ, the triumphant Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Lamb that was Slain, releases these horsemen to do His bidding as He brings judgment, warning, and trial upon the earth.

How We Demonstrate Hope [1 Peter 1:13-16]

Sermon Notes

Date: 01/28/2018

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:13-16

Description: Holiness gets a bad rap in our society.

For some, it is one more difficulty in a life already filled with struggle. For others, it is a means of justifying their own sense of superiority to the rest of the world.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back guest preacher Peter Montoro from Westside Baptist Church, pinch-hitting for Pastor Monty as he and his family take a much needed respite in the wake of his son, Isaiah’s, death.

SBC logo 204x204In our message, Pastor Montoro shows us that holiness, rightly understood, is neither of these things mentioned at the beginning, but rather a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate the hope that we have in Christ. In the end, holiness is not about an upturned nose but about uplifted eyes.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/26/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 2 Corinthians 4

SBC logo 204x204Description: How is it that the Christian can be devastated and yet hopeful at the same time? How is it that at the point when we are weakest is also the point at which we are strongest? 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao preaches in the aftermath of losing his son to a brutal horseriding accident and shows us, in the midst of that, that the Apostle Paul answers these questions in the book of 2 Corinthians; and within it we find more beauty in the Gospel for it is Good News even in times like this.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 07/30/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 28:10-22

SBC logo 204x204Description: The story of Jacob’s ladder has captured the attention of generations of people far and wide, as we hear in popular music and in church Sunday Schools across America…. yet the real meaning and significance of Jacob’s vision has largely remained unknown. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that in the New Testament, Jesus, Himself, tells us that He is the promise of Jacob’s Ladder and the only gate to heaven… And the only one who makes God to dwell with man.

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 19:30-38

SBC logo 204x204Description: Sometimes there are places in the Bible that a pastor doesn’t want to preach on – or for that matter, touch with a 10-foot pole!  Our passage this morning is just such a passage. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis verse by verse, to show us that even in the midst of heinous sin, we see the amazing abundance of God’s grace towards the sinner…God’s grace, towards us.

Rescued From Judgement [Genesis 19:1-29]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/26/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 19:1-29

SBC logo 204x204Description: Catastrophic judgment. That’s how we often view the account of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Bible… and in many ways it is. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis to show us that when we view Sodom and Gomorrah as “catastrophic judgement,” we skip over – in the midst of this judgment – God’s compassion and mercy that come to all who trust in Him. Because you see, from Genesis to Revelation, judgement and mercy are always coupled together… and the story of Sodom and Gomorrah is no different.
