“Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” – Revelation 3:10
Revelation 3:10 – one of the most contested verses in this book of the Bible.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation by taking a moment to unpack this particular verse.
Let’s face it, while everyone in the church agrees that Christ is coming again, not everyone agrees on how it plays out. And while there are multiple interpretive frameworks regarding the book of Revelation, how you interpret what it means for “God to keep us” reveals much about the framework you operate from.
Missionary David Hardin and his family stopped by to worship with us this Sunday. Many years ago, David grew up in our church, and now he is a Missionary to the Tarahumara people of the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico through Mexico Medical Missions. Though he did not preach today, he did give us an update, and with that an unexpected insight into something we all too easily take for granted.
Description: From the very first verses in the book of Revelation, the Apostle John – its author – draws a line in the sand.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in Revelation and shows us that even as early as John’s greeting in the opening verses, he’s quick to set God’s authority over that of every lesser authority and as the only Giver of grace and peace.
“The fairest marbles have their flaws, and, while there are spots in the sun, we must not expect anything spotless under it.”
— the great Puritan Commentator, Matthew Henry, concerning Genesis Chapter 20.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and points out that no truer words than those penned by Henry were spoken about Abraham… or about us, for that matter. Because you see, Genesis Chapter 20 is not a chapter recorded to Abraham’s honor, but it is recorded to God’s grace.
Description: 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.
Description: As church-attending-Christians we hear the same scriptures repeated over the years. They tend to become so familiar that we no longer listen to the little details. The passage in this message has some wonderful insights that are too often overlooked. May the Lord slow each of us down to the place where we can fully grasp what the Bible is telling us in this amazing section from Luke 23.
Description: With only 600 men of Benjamin who survive the Battle at Gibeah, Israel is in danger of losing one of her tribes…permanently. Taking matters into their own hands, the Israelites travel down a dark road trying to fix a problem by human means and sin while claiming to be righteous.
