Redeeming the Ruthless [Isaiah 25:1-9; Ephesians 2:1-10]

April 12, 2020


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/12/2020, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Isaiah 25:1-9; Ephesians 2:1-10

Description: The prophet Isaiah painted a picture of the rebellion in the nations: a place of idolatry, injustice, and insurrection; a place where God is ignored and His followers mocked, as man sits in his citadels of strength.

…That is, until God brings man’s city to ruin and his citadels to rubble.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao virtually delivers a Resurrection Sunday Service to our church body as we watch from the safety of our homes during the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 and reminds us that during these times when God brings people low, we rejoice.

We rejoice because God does it to rescue the afflicted and to vindicate His people. But there’s another reason we rejoice…a scandalous reason.  SBC logo 204x204

God brings people low to make the proud humble and remove the strength of the mighty and bring the ruthless to their knees.

And most shockingly, He redeems the ruthless so that they too worship Him.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/05/2020, Palm Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Psalm 46

Description: Imagine that The Plague has come to your city. People are sick and needing help… and yet, the only response from civil authorities is to tell everyone to run!

What would YOU do?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues his virtual preaching to our church body as we “stay home and stay healthy” during the Coronavirus Pandemic and asks us to ponder the described scenario: What WOULD you do?

SBC logo 204x204

Would you run? Would you stay to help?

Because, you see, how you answer these questions truly depends on WHAT, or WHO, you believe keeps you safe.

Why Did Jesus Need to Die? [Romans 3:23-24]

April 1, 2018


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/01/2018, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Romans 3:23-24

Description:

Why did Jesus go to the cross?

There are many reasons that Jesus went to the cross. There are human reasons such as Judas Iscariot betraying Him and the Sanhedrin wanting to kill him. …But those reasons see the cross from the perspective of man of things that happened to Jesus – they don’t ultimately answer the question “why.” Because obviously, He had escaped the grasp of evil men before.

SBC logo 204x204Today on our Easter Sunday Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao rightfully sharpens our thinking on this question and shows us that the cross wasn’t just a thing that happened …it was necessary. Jesus didn’t just go to the cross, He needed to go to the cross…He needed to die. For that was His purpose in taking on flesh. So perhaps a better question we need to ask is “Why did Jesus need to die?”

What is the Gospel? [1 Corinthians 15]

April 16, 2017


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/16/2017, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 15

SBC logo 204x204Description: The Gospel is the central message of the church and the central figure of the message is Jesus Christ. Yet many in the church can’t define what this message is. Sometimes they even define it in ways that are the opposite to what the Scriptures reveal…ways that don’t lead sinners to salvation but leave them condemned with no good news.

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 5:7-8

SBC logo 204x204Description: Most Christians don’t associate Easter with Passover. But with some study, one can see how they are beautifully interwoven into God’s perfect tapestry. The parallel of the Passover Lamb and our Lord Jesus — the perfect sacrificial Lamb of God — helps clarify in our minds the wonder of God’s plan for the salvation of believers.

From the Guttermost to the Uttermost [2 Samuel 9:1-13]

April 4, 2010

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/04/2010, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: 2 Samuel 9:1-13

Description: Though you might not think of looking for the Easter Story in the Old Testament, God tells it beautifully through the life of Mephibosheth — a life that was filled with tragedy and shame.  In the end, however, he was lifted out of his lowly position and given a place at the king’s table.

Listen in as Elder Monty Simao shows us how the story of Mephibosheth and King David parallels man and the King of Kings.

1. Parallel of Condition

a.     Disgraced Condition
b.     Doomed Condition
c.     Destitute Condition

2.  Parallel of Covenant

3. Parallel of Calling

a.     Sought
b.     Sent
c.     Spared
d.     Secured

4. Parallel of Crown
