Innocent Blood [Matthew 27:1-26; John 3:16]

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/09/2022, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Matthew 27:1-26; John 3:16


How can there be some much hatred for the one Man who has never sinned?

This Easter Morning on the Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao focuses on HATE. And causes us to consider its polar opposite: LOVE.

For the trials and crucifixion of Jesus show us no greater example of the extreme chasm of these two words — these two actions — than the love of God and the hatred of men.

Jesus came to save sinners because of the great love of God.

As we look back on this day, it’s hard to imagine how one of His own disciples would betray Him. And how the crowds at His own trial would demand His crucifixion.

On one hand, we relate. For we have all experienced hate on some level.

…But, if we’re honest, when it comes to wrongdoing, we’re guilty.

Intolerance, Love, and Hate [Revelation 2:1-7]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/30/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 2:1-7

Description: The Ephesians were intolerant and haters… and for that, Jesus praised them.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us that in Christ’s letter to the church of Ephesus, He, indeed, did praise them for their intolerance to evil and hating the things He hates.

But most of us don’t consider intolerance a virtue, nor think that there would be something that Jesus actually hates… let alone, wants us to hate too. But that’s exactly what we read.

And in the midst of this, we are told to love.

Sound contradictory? Not at all. SBC logo 204x204

Let’s love the things that God loves and hate the things that God hates… and in so doing, know what it is like to walk in Truth.

Sharing the Sufferings of Christ [1 Peter 4:12-14]

November 14, 2010

Sermon Notes

Date: 11/14/2010

Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder

Series: 1 Peter

Key Text: 1 Peter 4:12-14

Description: In these verses Peter gives the climax of his urgent warning and strengthening of the church against the terrible persecution, already under way, but soon to issue in the death of countless numbers of the faithful. Although Peter primarily had in mind the prophetic destruction of Jerusalem, it should never be overlooked that the event itself was a type of the ultimate judgment of the Second Coming, giving all of the apostle’s teaching here a spiritual application for all generations to come.
