Key Text: Revelation 19:17-21

Description: It’s a feast! But there’s more than one…

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and explains that at the end of chapter 19, we are provided with an image of two different feasts.

The first is a beautiful banquet of the Marriage supper of the Lamb — the second, a grotesque gorge, that is even difficult to read about.

God’s judgment and eternal damnation is a difficult topic, but it’s one that Christ and His apostles spoke often of, and therefore, requires our attention.

Key Text: Revelation 19:1-10

Description: As we near the end of the Bible, the fate of two women hang in the balance.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we are introduced to two women who will be be judged very differently: the harlot and the bride.

The harlot — the great prostitute and idolatress of Babylon — has been corrupting and poisoning the earth with her adultery, and now must face the fierce outpouring of the wrath of the Lamb.

SBC logo 204x204

While the the Bride of Christ has been redeemed and is permitted to dress in fine, dazzling white and clean linen — signifying the righteous and moral acts of the saints — as she readies herself for her groom… who is also the Lamb.

For one will stand as recipient of His wrath, the other, His love.

Fallen, Fallen is Babylon the Great! [Revelation 18:1-24]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/06/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 18

Description:

Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit…

And the kings of the earth, who committed acts of immorality and lived sensuously with her, will weep and lament over her when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance because of the fear of her torment, saying, “Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For in one hour your judgment has come.”

It’s the funeral of Babylon the Great…the funeral of the Harlot.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we see in chapter 18 the world watching from a distance the funeral service of Babylon, lamenting that their cash cow has met her demise.

“Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth, for in one hour she has been laid waste!”

SBC logo 204x204

But the saints are also watching, and they are rejoicing that God has judged the city that has made itself drunk on the blood of the martyrs.

Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you saints and apostles and prophets, because God has pronounced judgment for you against her.

Key Text: Revelation 15:1-8

Description: Have you ever had a dream in which you were being pursued? Have you ever awoke in a cold sweat because you were almost caught?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which he teaches that the feeling of being pursued is one the ancient Israelites knew well, as God brought about a great deliverance in the Exodus.

SBC logo 204x204

But as great a picture as the Exodus is in showing us God’s deliverance, the Bible speaks of an even greater “Exodus” with a freedom that comes from One who is greater than Moses.

Key Text: Revelation 14:16-20

Description: Fire and brimstone preaching… a style that has certainly has fallen out of contemporary fashion. And yet, the Bible is chock-full of explicit and implicit warning against the coming wrath of God. 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and points out that whether the message is read from the Bible, or preached from the pulpit, countless people hear it and delay bowing the knee before God in repentance. 

SBC logo 204x204

The day is coming, however, when it will be too late to repent… and both the believer and the non-believer will be harvested: one to eternal reward — the other, eternal damnation.

Description: And then John looks up and sees an image that makes Colossus of Rhodes look small and the gods of the Roman pantheon look… well, weak.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Revelation in which witness right along with John… a mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud, rainbow on his head, and face shining like the sun with feet like pillars of fire.

And yet, as breathtaking as this image is… this amazing being is just simply one of God’s servants do His bidding.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and asks would we still consider it “Judgement” if God brought forth an event so dramatic that it rivaled Sodom and Gomorrah, but instead of fire and brimstone, there was deception and idolatry?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we turn our attention to chapter 9 — a chapter that has has certainly captured the imagination of Bible interpreters from around the world — with interpretations as varied as an invasion of Apache helicopters to an army of genetically modified locusts who prey on flesh instead of vegetation.

But, are these interpretations in line with what John is trying to communicate? … or have we moved away from the purpose of the book?

And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared…to sound them.

With the opening of the fifth seal we witness the martyrs that have come out of this present evil age, crying for God to judge the evil doers and avenge them.

SBC logo 204x204The sixth seal is God’s response… for with the opening of this seal, we get a glimpse of the final day of wrath, of de-creation, and the absolute terror the enemies of God will experience.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis to show us that when we view Sodom and Gomorrah as “catastrophic judgement,” we skip over – in the midst of this judgment – God’s compassion and mercy that come to all who trust in Him. Because you see, from Genesis to Revelation, judgement and mercy are always coupled together… and the story of Sodom and Gomorrah is no different.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 11:1-9

SBC logo 204x204Description: …And pride overtook their hearts, as they set out to build a tower so high that it reached Heaven… a tower so high that everyone around the world would know about it and want to be part of it.

They would be great. They would be famous. And God had no place in their equation.

So God came down and confused their language. And the building stopped.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis in which we see that even after the flood of Noah, man still rebelled against God. God had commanded man to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth; instead – to keep from being scattered – the people gathered together and built a city and a tower. They weren’t interested in honoring God’s name, they wanted a name for themselves. And while the Tower of Babel may be gone, man is still sinfully trying to make a name for himself and, just like during the time of Babel, this too will be judged.

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.
