Key Text: Revelation 16:1-7

Description: The wrath of God — one of the least popular themes in the Bible.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and points out that though God’s judgement and wrath may not be subjects people flock to, the Bible mentions them very clearly… and often.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/02/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 3:10-11

Description: 

“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. SBC logo 204x204

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 Update

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.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 20

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“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.

The Nations are Scattered [Genesis 10:1-32]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/09/2016

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.

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Luke 23:33, 39-43

SBC logo 204x204Description: 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.

Beyond Good Behavior: Parenting and the Gospel of Grace

March 15, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/15/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Luke 15

Description:  Our children are much the same way.  We tend to have the Prodigals or the Pharisees.  We tend to think of the Prodigals as hard to parent and we are always telling them the rules and the things that God requires.  While the Pharisees actually seem to get either praised or largely ignored.  After all, since they follow the rules, they require so much less…don’t they?

The truth of the matter is that our children can fall into both categories on any given day.  Sometimes our rebellious children follow the rules for a while and it seems that we are making so much progress.  And sometimes our rule-following children go through seasons of rebellion.  The categories are not hard and fast but rather designed to be descriptive.

What we fail to remember is that the Gospel is not about following the rules to get saved.  The Gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ obeyed the law perfectly for us.  In other words, both our rebels and our rule-followers need the same thing.  They need a Savior who has pleased God in all things and who has purchased their forgiveness by His death on the cross.

The ironic thing is that we fail to give either child the Gospel.  The Prodigal just gets scolding and punishment.  We tell them over and over what is expected…we tell them the rules.  Our Pharisees get praised for doing the right thing.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/25/2014

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Job

Key Text: Job 4-7

Description:  In chapter 4 the first of Job’s friends, Eliphaz, breaks the silence and provides council to Job.  It is miserable council.  Eliphaz believes that calamity only follows sin and so has already concluded that Job is in sin and calls for his repentance.

Job is discouraged by his friend and eventually turns his plead to God.  In fact, Job is so discouraged that he requests God turn His gaze away from him and let him die in peace.
