Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 22:18-21

Description: All Christians believe in the return of Christ.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao comes to our final passage for our study in the book of Revelation and presents us with a challenge:

If we know our Lord is returning, how does that change us? Does it change the things we think, say, and do?

The church’s response to Christ’s promise to come quickly is to say “Amen, Come Lord Jesus”.

But, is that your attitude? Are you looking forward to the blessed hope at the appearing of our Lord?

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 46

Description: The long awaited reunion of father and son is here. Joseph finally gets to see his dad again! But surprisingly this get together is only allotted two verses.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that while you’d expect the reuniting of Joseph and Jacob to receive more airplay, the bulk of chapter 46 is focused on the entrance of Israel into Egypt and the fulfillment God’s promises. But we also see, how in the Almighty’s providence, this entire turn-of-events is by God’s governing over the affairs of men to bring about His purposes.

Mizpah — it’s not what you think [Genesis 31:43-55]

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 31:43-55

SBC logo 204x204Description: Mizpah. In Christian circles today, when you hear this word it’s often associated with little coins or trinkets – jewelry in essence – that people buy to show their prayer for protection over another. They can even be seen by some as romantic. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis to show us that this is NOT how Mizpah was utilized in the Bible… in fact, it was quite the opposite.

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 21:22-34

SBC logo 204x204Description: It’s a Bible passage that commentaries and sermon series often skip over. Today on Scandia Bible Church podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our verse-by-verse preaching through the book of Genesis… and doesn’t skip any of them – including Genesis 21:22-34… a cluster of verses that may, at first, seem “mundane,” hidden between the birth of Isaac, sending Ishmael away, and God’s testing of Abraham to sacrifice Isaac on Mount Moriah. But what we’ll find is that this often skipped passage has much to teach us about God’s faithfulness to fulfill all His promises.

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 17:9-27

SBC logo 204x204Description: God gave Abraham a sign of His covenant with him,

…and now Abraham was carving that sign into his flesh.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that when Abraham was 99 years old, God commanded him and all his household to undergo circumcision. Abraham’s response:  immediate obedience – an obedience that didn’t make him acceptable before the Lord though, but one that sprang forth from God’s gracious dealings with him… gracious dealings that preceded Abraham’s response of faith.

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.

Key Text: Genesis 15

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

“Genesis Chapter 15 may well be one of the MOST IMPORTANT chapters in the Old Testament.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis, where we find ourselves in this very important 15th chapter. And as Pastor Simao will will develop in our message today: nowhere else will you find the Covenant of Grace so well pictured… and the Doctrine of Justification by Faith Alone so beautifully stated, than in this chapter. In fact, the 15th chapter of Genesis is so important that even the Apostle Paul would end up using it to develop the Doctrine of Justification in his letters to the Romans and the Galatians.

SBC logo 204x204Description: When God calls… do you answer?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis, in which we come across one of the most pivotal moments in redemptive history: God’s call of Abram – the father of all those who believe… the line in which God chose to make a great nation and ultimately deliver His Son, Jesus Christ. Pivotal indeed. But it’s also pivotal because we learn a lot in this moment in history. We learn that there is nothing “super-human” about Abram – he’s more like us than we think… And we learn that God is more amazing than we ever dared imagine.

Key Text: Genesis 9:8-17

SBC logo 204x204Description: When most people consider the Covenant that God made with Noah, they have the tendency to think of rainbows …and not much else.  But in this incredible section of Scripture we see promises that extend to every man, woman, and animal, and even the earth itself.  And in those promises we see where God’s judgment and mercy meet foreshadowing the final redemptive work of Christ.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we explore Noah and the Ark, as Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the Book of Genesis.

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/28/2016

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Revelation 4:1-11

SBC logo 204x204Description: It’s easy to become fascinated by the topic of End Times. The challenge is that many respected theologians disagree about this section of the Book of Revelation. Today we will present one view and seek to support it from other Scriptures. And while this view may not agree with yours, if the result of listening to this message leads you to further study, then the time is well spent. The caution, however, is that good is often the enemy of best.  …And the in-depth study of Christology is always the best.

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 2:6-11

Description:  Israel was given two battles:  the first – a battle within the home for the hearts of the next generation; the second – a battle outside the home to possess the land.  Failure in either would ultimately lead to failure in both.  The book of Judges begins with generational unfaithfulness and leads to covenantal unfaithfulness.

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.

Date: 12/30/2012

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Psalm 1

Description: Psalm 1 is the “preface” psalm to the entire book of Psalms. We see here the blessings of God pronounced upon His people and the curses of God upon the wicked. It draws its theme from the blessings and curses of the covenant of Sinai outlined in Deuteronomy 28-31 and we see its echo in the New Testament in what is commonly called the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount.
