And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared…to sound them. The first [angel] sounded, and there came hail and fire…. The second…and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea…. The third…a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch…. [And with] the fourth…the sun…the moon and…the stars were struck, so that a third of them…darkened….
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we see the first four Trumpet Judgements unfold.

We’ve reached the end of the book of Genesis, and it ends with death…
…the death of Jacob and Joseph. It’s a stark reminder that the curse of Genesis chapter 3 is still upon mankind, even those called by God.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao concludes our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that though it ends with the reminder of the curse, it also ends, like Genesis 3, with hope as well… Hope that the promises of God will one day be fulfilled, and that this dreadful curse will ultimately be destroyed at the consummation of Christ’s kingdom.
Description: Matthew begins with a genealogy, Mark with an OT prophecy and Luke, a personal note. But John begins with God speaking Himself into the world in the person of His own Son.

John states simply that the Word became flesh; that is, He became man in bodily form and in nature.
