Key Text: Genesis 17:1-8

SBC logo 204x204Description: But He Promised! It’s been 23 years since God brought Abram to Canaan. Where’s the land? Where are the children? Did He forget? What was God doing??? And why does He always make us wait and wait and wait?

It may seem that God is never on our time-frame. But, rest assured, He has His reasons. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where we find out in Abraham’s case, God wasn’t dragging His feet…

He was busy making the improbable, the impossible.

… so He could reveal Himself as God Almighty, the All-Sufficient One, who can do anything and everything He has promised.

Ever gotten to that place? Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that Abram’s wife, Sarai, has. In fact, her experience was such that she attempted – by her own effort – to bring about the promises of God. The results were disastrous.

For Unto Us a Child is Born [Isaiah 9:1-7]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/18/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Advent

Key Text: Isaiah 9:1-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: The birth announcement of Jesus was not a time of joyful anticipation… but anticipation in the midst of darkness, sin, and pain. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast as we move towards Christmas this Advent Season, we are reminded that 700 years before the birth of Christ, the prophet Isaiah described the coming Messiah in terms that sounded too good to be true:

Not only will He be King, but He will rule with justice and righteousness; He will increase the nation; He will deliver us from our enemies and bring about a peace that will never end.  And His kingly titles shall be Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Peace.

Key Text: Genesis 15

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

“Genesis Chapter 15 may well be one of the MOST IMPORTANT chapters in the Old Testament.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis, where we find ourselves in this very important 15th chapter. And as Pastor Simao will will develop in our message today: nowhere else will you find the Covenant of Grace so well pictured… and the Doctrine of Justification by Faith Alone so beautifully stated, than in this chapter. In fact, the 15th chapter of Genesis is so important that even the Apostle Paul would end up using it to develop the Doctrine of Justification in his letters to the Romans and the Galatians.

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 14; Hebrews 7

SBC logo 204x204Description: Melchizedek.

melchizedekPerhaps one of the most mysterious characters of the Old Testament. 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that Melchizedek was not only the king of Salem (a place that we presently identify as Jerusalem), but he was also a priest of God. What made this king and priest  mysterious, though, was that he foreshadowed – and pointed expectations forward – to the perfect, Kingly reign and Priesthood of Jesus Christ.

The Parting of the Ways [Genesis 13:1-18]

SBC frame line - current sermons

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]

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.
