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.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao nears the end of our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that though Jacob’s life has been marked by trials throughout and, at times, significant moral failings, he finishes strong.

Jacob fulfills his calling as patriarch and reminds Joseph and his sons of God’s goodness and promises. And then in a surprising turn of events, Jacob blesses Joseph by giving him a double portion and adopting his sons, making them chiefs among Israel.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/17/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 47

Description: As we begin to approach the end of our study in the book of Genesis, it’s easy to overlook the 47th chapter – often lost in the shadows of the ones that precede and follow it.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes us to Genesis chapter 47 to mine its depths. For it is in this chapter – long before the days of slavery and the Exodus – that we see the distinction God places between Israel and Egypt. And it is in this chapter that we also witness how great God’s provision was for the needs of His people. And through all this we glean a proper perspective of the brevity of life in light of eternity and the promises of God.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/03/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

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.

Abraham – Spiritual Giant or Faithless Coward? [Genesis 12:10-13:4]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/13/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 12:10-13:4

SBC logo 204x204Description: Spiritual Giant or Faithless Coward? What do you think of when you hear the name Abraham? 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that

Abraham is often described as the “Father of the Faith”

…but as we will see in our message, Abraham is given that title not because of his mighty faith and obedience (because just like you and I, he falls short), but because he is the spiritual father of all who believe the promises of God. In other words, it’s not Abraham’s faith that earns him the epitaph… but rather our Almighty God who is proven faithful.

The Bounties of a Victorious King [Ephesians 4:7-11]

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.
