Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/29/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Romans 13:11-14

Description:

How are we to live during a crisis? 

How are we to walk when told to stay put? 

How are we to represent God’s kingdom — a kingdom of hope —when chaos is all around us?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast as Pastor Monty Simao continues his virtual preaching to our church body while we obey stay-at-home governmental mandates during the COVID-19 Pandemic, he shows us that Romans 13 gives us the answers to these questions.

Not only does it provide us the way to walk during crisis, but, perhaps more importantly, it provides us a way to live with the end in sight…and how, ultimately, the return of our Lord affects the way we live in the here and now.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/16/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Isaiah 2:2-4; 1 Corinthians 13:13,8; Ephesians 4:11-13

Description:

“All good things must come to an end.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monthy Simao preaches his final sermon for our study in the book of Revelation, in which he points out the many wonderful and good gifts the Lord has given to His church in this life. 

Many of His good gifts, however, will come to an end. They will come to an end when this present evil age is over, and they no longer are needed.

For unlike the idiom we all know, stated at the beginning, which conveys negative emotions of acceptance that all things are temporary… with God, these things come to an end because they must make way for the better things that have arrived.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Acts 6:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:8-13

Description: 

Scandia Host: Do you know what a deacon is?

Average Guy: Not really. I just checked the Internet, though, and it said it was someone who was a good friend – one that you could call a brother – and while he might be a pain at times, he’ll be there to help you out if, and when, life takes a turn for the worse.

Scandia Host: Not really what I was looking for… but it’s a start. You’d better listen up.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes a break from our study in Revelation to address a question that most Christians don’t have an answer for: What is a deacon?

And this is a question that is especially relevant for Scandia Bible Church, because today we just got another one.

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

September 30, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons

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.
