God had not spoken to His people for over 400 years. It was a long time of silence and in that time, Israel had returned from exile, rebuilt the temple, survived Alexander the Great, and now was occupied by Rome. Many were discouraged and there were a host of ways in which the people responded. It was rough.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao opens the Bible this advent season to tell us of a pivotal moment in all of time:
God was going to break His silence.
And it wouldn’t be to a great prophet or the king, but He would send an angel to an obscure, middle-aged priest named Zecharias.
…For the most important time in history was about to begin.
Average Guy: I’m trying to listen to God, but I just don’t hear Him.
Scandia Host: Shhhh…. In our busy lives it’s often a challenge to slow down enough to actually come to a full stop and listen. For what we’ll find is that our desire and ability to listen to God is in direct correlation with who we consider Him to be.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker shares that too often we as Christians neglect the wonderful access and fellowship opportunities we have with our and Lord and Savior, because we fail to follow the clear and simple instructions found in Psalm 46:10:
Description: Every new day for a Christian is another chance to walk in the excitement of the Lord Jesus’ promise that He is going to come again to call us into His presence. If that doesn’t put a smile on your face then you should open the Scriptures and soak in them until you find that blessed inner joy.
A song has the words:
“…And the things of life will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.”
If you haven’t realized that yet, maybe this message will help make it personal for you.
Description: Every Christian has the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of God; that’s what it means to be “born again.” Here at Scandia Bible Church, we believe in the total sovereignty of God. In today’s message on Elijah and Elisha we will see that, in ministry, there is a need beyond being appointed unto salvation. To be active in ministry it’s also necessary to be anointed.
Description: The problem of division and disunity in the body of Christ is nothing new. It is a problem which Paul addresses in his letter to the church in Ephesus and which we will examine this morning. Paul clearly lays out the theological basis for the unity of the church by describing the work of the triune God in the lives of His people. Our last message (Ep. 4:4) describes this unity relating to the Holy Spirit. Today we will focus on unity as it relates to the Lord Jesus and God the Father.
