Alter Ego:

If God can prevent our suffering then why doesn’t He?

Scandia Host: That’s a good question.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao steps to the pulpit once again following his son, Isaiah’s, tragic death… to wrestle with this. “How can we go to God for comfort when ultimately, God is the one who could have prevented it and has therefore ordained our pain?”

Alter Ego: Exactly! That’s what I want to know.

Scandia Host: Well, you better pull up a pew and take a listen.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/07/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 23

SBC logo 204x204Description: Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and takes us to chapter 23 – a chapter which, admittedly, following Abraham binding his son Isaac to the alter as as a sacrificial offering to the Lord in the previous chapter…may seem a bit anti-climatic. In chapter 23, we see that Abraham’s wife, Sarah, has died… But instead of focusing on her death, Abraham enters into a land negotiation.

Why is this all here, and what is God showing us through it? …The answer may surprise you.

Date: 01/22/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 17:9-27

SBC logo 204x204Description: God gave Abraham a sign of His covenant with him,

…and now Abraham was carving that sign into his flesh.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that when Abraham was 99 years old, God commanded him and all his household to undergo circumcision. Abraham’s response:  immediate obedience – an obedience that didn’t make him acceptable before the Lord though, but one that sprang forth from God’s gracious dealings with him… gracious dealings that preceded Abraham’s response of faith.

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

November 13, 2016

SBC frame line - current sermons

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.

Key Text: Numbers 13

SBC logo 204x204Description: To our amazement the year 2015 suddenly ended, and we are now knee deep into 2016. Perhaps this is a good time to plan a strategy for the coming months. God’s word has given us many examples of how to successfully transit into a new year. The story of the 12 spies exploring the Promised Land gives us some insights into how God would have us move into the coming year.

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

August 9, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/09/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

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

Description:  After Jephthah’s defeat of the Ammonites and the wicked sacrifice of his own daughter, his troubles are not over.  He is rebuked by the Ephraimites and ends up fighting against them and over 40,000 Ephraimites die.  Israelite killing Israelite.

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”.

Why God Doesn’t Heal All Sick Saints [2 Corinthians 12:9]

July 19, 2015

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 07/19/2015

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 2 Corinthians 12:9

Description: On any Sunday morning in America you might hear a preacher proclaim that the only reason a person is sick is because they lack faith. Whoa be to the man who misrepresents the word of God. A proper search of the Scriptures will be offered today in response to that teaching.
