SBC logo 204x204

As Israelites would travel to Jerusalem for the three Pilgrim Feasts, they would play their favorite music by lifting up their voices in song.

These songs are known as the “Psalms of Ascent.” There are 15 of them, and this morning we look at the third: Psalm 122 — a psalm which gives us an interesting view of Jerusalem with many lessons for the church.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/04/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 14; Hebrews 7

SBC logo 204x204Description: Melchizedek.

melchizedekPerhaps one of the most mysterious characters of the Old Testament. 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that Melchizedek was not only the king of Salem (a place that we presently identify as Jerusalem), but he was also a priest of God. What made this king and priest  mysterious, though, was that he foreshadowed – and pointed expectations forward – to the perfect, Kingly reign and Priesthood of Jesus Christ.

Jephthah: Hero of Feeble Faith [Judges 12:1-7]

August 9, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/09/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Judges 12:1-7 and Hebrews 11:32

With all of the sinfulness and tragedy in the life of Jephthah, the book of Judges is not the only place we see mention of his name.  Jephthah surprisingly is listed in the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11.  We explore how Jephthah might have “made the cut”.

I Will Establish the Throne of His Kingdom Forever!

March 24, 2013

Sermon Notes

May 15, 2011

Sermon Notes

Date: 05/15/2011

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Ephesians

Key Text: Ephesians 4:7-11

Description: Our passage this morning offers a few problem areas for the exegete, not the least of which seems to be Paul’s apparent misquote of Psalm 68.  But a careful study thru this amazing Psalm reveals how a victorious king shares the spoils of war with an underserving  people.
