Description: We’ve read the seven letters to the churches of Asia Minor… which when taken in totality are a letter to the church as a whole, as well.
…So if that’s the case, how do you get the eyes of the church off of their circumstances as they look to the Lord for strength in all their trials?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues are study in the book of Revelation and helps us answer that question by pointing us to God in His splendor and sovereignty.
You see, the bigger God is to us, the smaller are the assaults of this present evil age… not because they are insignificant, but rather because they are put into perspective next to the God of the universe who is worthy of all praise.
…The first four words of the Bible – four words whose depth and volume lay the very foundation for the truths that the rest of the Bible proclaim.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker takes us all the way to the beginning of the Bible – Genesis 1:1 – and explains that when an author pens a story his aim is to grab your attention to draw you into his book. God did this with the first four words of His book… four words that are so important that if the reader can’t digest them, the remainder of the Bible will likely remain a mystery.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that this “friend” was Abraham. And one of the ways this friendship was manifest was when God took him into intimate council before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah – an act in which we not only see God’s reassurance to Abraham of His justice, but we also see a glimpse into an intimacy that foreshadowed, if even in a small way, the intimacy that Christ purchased for us.
Description: The doctrine of creation is not only under attack outside the church but from within as well. Christians have attempted to fit “millions of years” into the Genesis account by doing hermeneutical gymnastics to Genesis Chapter 1. The end result of these theories has been the undermining of not only the faith of countless Christians but the undermining of the Gospel itself!
Description: Samson travels to Timnah and along the way is attacked by a lion that he kills with his bare hands, mightily empowered by God. On a later journey, this time to marry his chosen Philistine girl, Samson finds the lion carcass housing a swarm of bees and full of honey. He later uses this encounter as the basis of a riddle to the 30 Philistine men at his wedding party. No one could ever solve Samson’s riddle…that is unless they cheat!
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”.
Description: The Judge Jephthah was a man who was despised and rejected by his brethren but who ended up saving them from the hand of the Ammonites. Yet even as God used him, he did an unthinkable act and sacrificed his daughter to God…a sacrifice that God didn’t want and certainly didn’t approve of.
