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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Key Text: Genesis 9:1-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: Genesis Chapter 9 put bacon on the menu. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Genesis in which we see that with the flood behind us, the old world is gone – it is destroyed. But through God’s grace a new one is provided…with Noah, in a sense, acting as another “Adam” – and all generations of the earth coming through him. And so one of the obvious questions becomes (besides allowing for bacon) in what ways has God’s relationship with man changed since the flood, and in what ways is it still the same? For that you’re going to have to listen, but one thing is for sure: With Chapter 9, we gain a fuller picture of the character of God, as we begin to catch a glimpse of the depth of His love towards man with the great and incredible unfolding of His Covenant of Grace.

Some Questions Answered:

  • In what ways did the flood change God’s expectations of men?
  • Does God expect of Noah the same things as He expected from Adam? 
  • Is man still in the Image of God after the fall into sin?
  • Does man still have dominion in a world that was wiped out because of man’s rebellion?

Key Text: Genesis 7

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“Then the flood came… and the water increased and lifted up the ark…. The water prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered…. All flesh that moved on the earth perished…. all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died…. They were blotted out from the earth; and only Noah was left, together with those that were with him in the ark.”

(taken from Gen 7:17-23)

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and covers one of the most well-known and hotly-debated accounts in the Bible: The Flood of Noah. Oftentimes, though, with all the attention it garners, in the midst of exerting our focus and efforts in trying to defend it (or avoid it), we Christians miss something amazing — we miss the amazing part the flood plays in the history of our redemption.

SBC logo 204x204Description: A long list of dead men who lived long ago…what’s the point???

Chapter 5 is one of those chapters we usually skip, after all, just about the whole thing is a genealogy. The Apostle Paul tells us though that:

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

…And that means that even Genesis 5 is given by God for our benefit.  For those who doubt, all we can say is “Come and see.”

How could Adam and Eve throw it all away? How angry God must have been by there disobedience, and yet even as God pronounced a curse upon the wayward couple, He announced His plan to rescue them.

SBC logo 204x204Description: Marriage is defined by God as God is its author. God has given husbands and wives different but complementary roles and responsibilities in marriage. Today we live in a culture that not only has usurped God’s authority in redefining marriage, but has also pushed for role androgyny in every area of life. Now, more than ever, the clarity of Scripture is needed to bring the light of truth to these areas.
