Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/20/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 13

SBC logo 204x204Description: Are you resting in the promises of God?  Abram did.

He gave his nephew, Lot, choice of the land. His nephew looked around – and even though the people who lived there were exceedingly wicked – his choice was clear: the fertile valley. It was lush, and it pleased him.

Abram gave up his preference of the land and instead rested in the promises of God.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shares with us that, oftentimes, the way of the Christian may not seem as profitable as the way of the world. Lot’s way was fertile, and the people lived in cities.  Abram’s way was arid, and he lived in tents. But while one way sees the “fertile valley” and a future of possibilities, the other is the sure way. …For it sees the living God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills.

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

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

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: Genesis 11:27-12:9

SBC logo 204x204Description: When God calls… do you answer?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis, in which we come across one of the most pivotal moments in redemptive history: God’s call of Abram – the father of all those who believe… the line in which God chose to make a great nation and ultimately deliver His Son, Jesus Christ. Pivotal indeed. But it’s also pivotal because we learn a lot in this moment in history. We learn that there is nothing “super-human” about Abram – he’s more like us than we think… And we learn that God is more amazing than we ever dared imagine.

Key Text: Genesis 11:10-32

SBC logo 204x204Description: Is God really in control??? Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that even through the Bible’s genealogies we can see God at work, sovereignly orchestrating the affairs of man to bring about His purposes. For He is sovereign over EVERYTHING – sovereign over the BIG things in life, and even sovereign over those things, which to you and I, may seem too small to matter.

God Scatters the Nations [Genesis 11:1-9]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/16/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 11:1-9

SBC logo 204x204Description: …And pride overtook their hearts, as they set out to build a tower so high that it reached Heaven… a tower so high that everyone around the world would know about it and want to be part of it.

They would be great. They would be famous. And God had no place in their equation.

So God came down and confused their language. And the building stopped.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which we see that even after the flood of Noah, man still rebelled against God. God had commanded man to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth; instead – to keep from being scattered – the people gathered together and built a city and a tower. They weren’t interested in honoring God’s name, they wanted a name for themselves. And while the Tower of Babel may be gone, man is still sinfully trying to make a name for himself and, just like during the time of Babel, this too will be judged.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 10

SBC logo 204x204Description: Genesis Chapter 10 is often skipped over. Most of us struggle through these long and ancient genealogies. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our Study in the book of Genesis in which he takes us through the descendants of Noah in Chapter 10… and shows us that while genealogies are often tedious to move through, God always has a purpose for what He reveals in His Word. Oftentimes to see His purpose, though, we need to view a passage through the eyes of redemptive history. And when we do this with Genesis 10, we see more than a genealogy: what we see is a picture of God’s judgment, grace, and Gospel.

Skeletons in the Closet [Genesis 9:18-29]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 9:18-29

SBC logo 204x204Description: For 950 years, Noah walked with God. But in the last captured moment of his life, we read that he was drunk and naked and ridiculed by his own son… leaving many of us wondering: “What happened??? He was such a righteous man.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we see that the Bible is careful to record sad events such as this in the lives of great men, to both warn us – lest we also fall – and for us to remember that God alone – not Noah – is the hero in this story (and in every story), and it is to Christ that we are to look.
