Sermon Notes

Date: 04/07/2019

Preacher: Colton Bennett, guest preacher

Key Text: Galatians 3:10-14

Description: 

Average Guy: I’m a pretty good person. I’m not perfect, but I do my best. I’m sure once I die, God will see it that way and let me in. He’ll forgive me.

SBC Host: I hate to break it to you, but… God cannot “just” forgive you, because He is JUST. His bar is perfection, and He will not bend the rules or look the other way. There is a penalty. Your sinfulness is a curse, and it must fall upon somebody. It’s called penal substitutionary atonement. “Sorry,” alone, won’t cut it.

Average Guy: Oh.

SBC Host: Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back to our pulpit, guest preacher and Kentucky pastor-to-be, Colton Bennett, who not only wrestles with us through the weighty theological subject of penal substitutionary atonement, but points us to the beauty that arose out of it: Christus Victor… Christ is Victorious.SBC logo 204x204

And then we realize that the Gospel is not a message only for the lost, but also the found.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/31/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 10

Description: And then John looks up and sees an image that makes Colossus of Rhodes look small and the gods of the Roman pantheon look… well, weak.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Revelation in which witness right along with John… a mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud, rainbow on his head, and face shining like the sun with feet like pillars of fire.

And yet, as breathtaking as this image is… this amazing being is just simply one of God’s servants do His bidding.

But through this vision, we capture a glimpse of God’s amazing sovereignty over a seemingly chaotic world which will one day come to an end — when the mysteries of the Lord Almighty will be revealed in the renewed world that awaits.

Description: Sometimes Judgment doesn’t come as we would expect. 

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and asks would we still consider it “Judgement” if God brought forth an event so dramatic that it rivaled Sodom and Gomorrah, but instead of fire and brimstone, there was deception and idolatry?

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/17/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 9:1-12

Description:

The skies over the Euphrates swarm with airborne military weaponry: helicopters, jets, and drones crowd the air. And like metal locusts equipped with rapid fire guns in their mouths and bombs in their tails, they have orders to incessantly attack and destroy.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we turn our attention to chapter 9 — a chapter that has has certainly captured the imagination of Bible interpreters from around the world — with interpretations as varied as an invasion of Apache helicopters to an army of genetically modified locusts who prey on flesh instead of vegetation.

But, are these interpretations in line with what John is trying to communicate? … or have we moved away from the purpose of the book?
