Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:11-16

Description:

It not only guides the way in which we live and walk in this life, but it also desires and searches for a home that this fallen world cannot provide — the heart of faith.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that in God, we as Christians, are satisfied.

…Which also means that we are dissatisfied with anything less.

Therefore, our hearts will only rest when we find the home that God has prepared for us, where we will dwell in His presence forever.

Even Sarah [Hebrews 11:11-12]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/09/2022

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:11-12; Genesis 18:1-15

Description:

She’s wife to “The Father of all who believe,” but she doesn’t share the same stellar reputation. [sfx: laugh of unbelief]

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews where we are focusing on the heroes that adorn the “Hall of Faith”.

…And when we hear that Sarah made the cut, we too are tempted to laugh. For we remember in the book of Genesis that the aged Sarah laughed in unbelief when God told her husband, Abraham, that she would soon have a son.

And yet, the book of Hebrews remembers Sarah DIFFERENTLY — as one who believed God.

Certainly, this obvious contradiction must be due to some sort of oversight!

For thanks be to God’s grace,

“even Sarah” has a place…

in the Epistle to the Hebrews’ Hall of Faith.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/05/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:8-10

Description:

“The Father of All of Who Believe” — an incredible epitaph for an incredible, faith-filled man.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us that when it comes to faith, we can learn a lot from Abraham.

SBC logo 204x204

But can we even relate to this stalwart of faith??

Ironically, while our daily struggles may make us feel far removed from what Father Abraham must have experienced, what we’re likely to find is that we share more in common with him, than not.

When Faith Goes to Work [Hebrews 11:7]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:7

Description:

[Telephone Vignette]

Store: Bob’s Lumber.

Customer: Yes. Hello. I need 3.1 million board feet of gopher wood delivered out to my place tomorrow morning please.

Store: Can I get a name on that order?

Customer: Noah.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews where we are learning a lot about faith right now. And Noah is yet another example of one that put action behind his belief.

To the outsider, he would have looked crazy. Everything around Noah said that building a boat — a ship of such enormity — was a ridiculous endeavor. He didn’t even live near a boat launch!

…And yet without a cloud in the sky — BY FAITH — Noah knew that it was about to rain.

Our Great Reward [Hebrews 11:5-6]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/21/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:5-6

Description:

[Voice Compilation]

So all the days that Adam lived were…

So all the days of Seth were…

So all the days of Enosh were…

So all the days of Kenan were…

So all the days of Mahalalel were…

So all the days of Jared were…

So all the days of Methuselah were…

So all the days of Lamech were…

So all the days of Noah were…

…AND HE DIED.

They ALL died — except two: Elijah and Enoch… the two men in all of history who have not tasted the pains of death. Why?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that the Bible records much about Elijah; but about Enoch…not so much.

Consequently, throughout church history, Enoch’s sparse record has been a source of speculation.

SBC logo 204x204

The author of Hebrews, however, helps us decipher what it was about the life of Enoch that was so pleasing to God — so pleasing that he spared him death.

…And the answer may not be what we think.

Acceptable Through Faith [Hebrews 11:4]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/14/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:4

Description:

Two brothers went before the Lord to offer a sacrifice. One was accepted…the other, rejected.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews in which we examine this perplexing situation.

After all, as brothers, Cain and Abel had the same parents and were likely raised the same way. They both believed in God. And they both offered sacrifices from their labor and toil.

SBC logo 204x204

But the end of the story leaves one brother dead and the other exiled.

Why??

…The very question the author of Hebrews seeks to answer.

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 11:1-3

Description:

SBC Host: To live by faith — what does it mean??

Avg Guy:It means, mustering the courage and taking a leaping step into the dark.

Avg Gal:It’s channeling the power that comes from positive thinking to bring about what you want.

SBC Host: These are NOT Biblical views of faith.

Avg Guy/Gal: Oh.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows how the author not only defines faith for us, but gives us example after example of those that went before, who knew what it meant to live by faith: the saints of the Old Testament.
