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.

Date: 04/02/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

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.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

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.

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.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

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.

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 11:27-12:9

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.
