Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 22:10-16

Description: Many look at the book of Revelation like a puzzle or an encrypted message. And, provided they have the correct decoder ring, they can unlock the vast spiritual truth found there.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao nears the end of our study in the book of Revelation and teaches that this book is not about “unlocking” anything, but rather is designed to unveil what was once hidden.

This unveiling is actually what the word Apocalypse or Revelation means, and the final chapter makes this purpose clear.

Description: 

“Behold, I am coming soon.”

For generations of Christians, these are words that have brought comfort, but for some, confusion.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 47

Description: As we begin to approach the end of our study in the book of Genesis, it’s easy to overlook the 47th chapter – often lost in the shadows of the ones that precede and follow it.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes us to Genesis chapter 47 to mine its depths. For it is in this chapter – long before the days of slavery and the Exodus – that we see the distinction God places between Israel and Egypt. And it is in this chapter that we also witness how great God’s provision was for the needs of His people. And through all this we glean a proper perspective of the brevity of life in light of eternity and the promises of God.

Description: The long awaited reunion of father and son is here. Joseph finally gets to see his dad again! But surprisingly this get together is only allotted two verses.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that while you’d expect the reuniting of Joseph and Jacob to receive more airplay, the bulk of chapter 46 is focused on the entrance of Israel into Egypt and the fulfillment God’s promises. But we also see, how in the Almighty’s providence, this entire turn-of-events is by God’s governing over the affairs of men to bring about His purposes.

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.

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.
