Key Text: Revelation 11:15-19

Description:

Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying,“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.”

—Revelation 11:15

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation where we see the Trumpet Judgments come to an end in much the same way as the Seal Judgments — with images representing the final Day of Judgment and the consummation of Christ’s kingdom.SBC logo 204x204

For the goal is that Heaven and Earth are one and that God’s temple fills the earth… and the final destruction of all His enemies is seen.

Description: Even in the midst of terrible things, God is at work safeguarding His people.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and explains that the protection God affords His people is the point that chapter 10 and 11 make. SBC logo 204x204

For the church follows after her Lord as faithful witnesses who are persecuted even unto death …and yet just like Jesus, God’s people will one day see the resurrection, restoration, and victory.

Immanuel — God with us [Revelation 11:1-2]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/05/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 11:1-2

Description: Most people think the end game of the Bible (Consummation) is for God to bring man back to The Garden.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation, and teaches us that in the story of Redemption, that line of thinking is simply NOT TRUE. SBC logo 204x204

No, Consummation will bring us back to a state far better than Eden…far better than anything we can imagine! 

For sin will be no more, righteousness will reign, and the garden will have been expanded to the ends of the earth…where God will dwell with us.

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

January 13, 2019

SBC frame line - current sermons

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.

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.

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.

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.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 17:1-8

SBC logo 204x204Description: But He Promised! It’s been 23 years since God brought Abram to Canaan. Where’s the land? Where are the children? Did He forget? What was God doing??? And why does He always make us wait and wait and wait?

It may seem that God is never on our time-frame. But, rest assured, He has His reasons. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where we find out in Abraham’s case, God wasn’t dragging His feet…

He was busy making the improbable, the impossible.

… so He could reveal Himself as God Almighty, the All-Sufficient One, who can do anything and everything He has promised.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 2:4-17

SBC logo 204x204Description: God placed Adam in a garden with all the benefits therein but commanded him not to eat from one particular tree.  This was a covenant of works.  Adam could continue in the paradise garden as long as he was obedient to God’s one command.  Adam failed this test of obedience, and in Adam we all failed as well.

But God would send a Second Adam – a better Adam – Jesus Christ: One who would obey all the law perfectly, as well as pay the punishment for the sins of Adam’s fallen race, thereby purchasing salvation for His people.

Failure to Keep the Covenant [Judges 1:1-2:5]

March 29, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/29/2015, Palm Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 1:1-2:5

Description:  Israel fails to take the land and this sets off 350 years of rapid decline.  It’s a downward spiral of depravity as things go from bad to worse.  God hears the cries of His people and over and over He sends a judge to rescue them. But when the judge dies, the people fall back into idolatry and rebellion…and so the cycle continues.

The anticipation is for a judge that will rule righteously and not die. And whose righteous rule will bring a time of peace and the possession of the land.  That anticipation has been met in Christ who is the only righteous king and who alone obeyed the covenant for the prospering of His people.

Key Text: Job 8-10

Description:  We’ve come to the second of Job’s friends, Bildad. Bildad doesn’t have the diplomatic skills of the older Eliphaz, instead he councils Job in his blunt cruelty.

Job is brought so low in his struggle that he cries aloud for a mediator, one who could stand between him and God. Job’s calamity and pain point out a desire that could only be fulfilled by Christ.

Miserable Comforters [Job 4-7]

May 25, 2014

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/25/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 4-7

Description:  In chapter 4 the first of Job’s friends, Eliphaz, breaks the silence and provides council to Job.  It is miserable council.  Eliphaz believes that calamity only follows sin and so has already concluded that Job is in sin and calls for his repentance.

Job is discouraged by his friend and eventually turns his plead to God.  In fact, Job is so discouraged that he requests God turn His gaze away from him and let him die in peace.
