Description: God often uses things in our life to prepare us for a road that He will have us walk.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which we see God preparing Joseph – Jacob’s second youngest son, who’s now 17 years old – for the trials that await him. God sends Joseph dreams that we all know will one day encourage his heart, but presently seem to do nothing but drive a wedge of further bitterness into his already divided family.
It’s in the trials we face, though, that God’s gracious hand leads us every step of the way, not only during – but as we’ll learn – before.
Description: What happens when the wicked prosper and the righteous suffer? … Material success? Worldly prosperity?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which we see the line of Esau – the rejected line – prosper in an incredible way; while Jacob – whom God had named “Israel” or the “Prince of God” – watches from the sideline, trusting God for something far greater than all the accolades the world can give.
Description: Have you ever been away a long time from home? Perhaps a month, or even a year? Well, Jacob had been gone for 30 years, and his homecoming brought with it pleasure along with pain.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao returns to the pulpit – after having been away himself for a time to mourn the loss of his son, Isaiah.
He continues with our study in the book of Genesis and reminds us that when it comes to pleasure and pain, most things in life are a mixture of the two. But take note: God is not only with us in our pleasure, He too is with us in our pain… and He proves sufficient for all that He brings into our life.
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.
Description: In the aftermath of the horrors of Judges 19, all Israel gathers together to wage war against the inhabitants of Gibeah and the rest of the tribe of Benjamin who decide to defend the evil men of Gibeah. God exercises justice on the Benjamites and only 600 survive this bloody civil war.
Description: Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, and there is perhaps no greater day to focus on Christ’s kingly office. God gave Abraham a royal grant and prophecy that He would make a people for Himself and establish a Kingdom and righteous King for His people. This covenantal promise was fulfilled in the life of David and found its ultimate fulfillment in the person and work of Christ.
Description: Psalm 1 is the “preface” psalm to the entire book of Psalms. We see here the blessings of God pronounced upon His people and the curses of God upon the wicked. It draws its theme from the blessings and curses of the covenant of Sinai outlined in Deuteronomy 28-31 and we see its echo in the New Testament in what is commonly called the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount.
