Good Tidings of Great Joy! [Isaiah 9:1-7; Luke 1:26-38]

January 2, 2022

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/02/2022

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Advent

Key Text: Isaiah 9:1-7; Luke 1:26-38

Description:

The angel, Gabriel, was God’s messenger.

For God had a message that would not only break 400 years of His silence, but would announce the birth of two sons: John and Jesus — the Baptizer and the Christ.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues in his Advent series this season, further telling us about the greatest miracle of all: the birth of Jesus.

John the Baptist played a crucial part, though, for he was sent by God to prepare the way for Jesus. And while the story of Jesus’ birth is one that we are all familiar with, what we can often miss is that every aspect, of this story we know so well, is rooted in the prophesies of God concerning the Messiah.

And Jesus fulfilled them all.

The Almighty God and Creator of the universe had veiled Himself in the flesh of a helpless infant.

This baby, had come through the most unexpected mother, in the most unexpected way, to be the long-awaited Savior of the world.

To Prepare the Way [Luke 1:1-25]

December 19, 2021

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/19/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Advent

Key Text: Luke 1:1-25

Description:

God had not spoken to His people for over 400 years.  It was a long time of silence and in that time, Israel had returned from exile, rebuilt the temple, survived Alexander the Great, and now was occupied by Rome.  Many were discouraged and there were a host of ways in which the people responded. It was rough.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao opens the Bible this advent season to tell us of a pivotal moment in all of time:

God was going to break His silence.

And it wouldn’t be to a great prophet or the king, but He would send an angel to an obscure, middle-aged priest named Zecharias.

…For the most important time in history was about to begin.

No Room for Jesus [Luke 2:1-7]

December 25, 2016

Sermon Notes

Date: 12/25/2016

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Series: Advent, Christmas Morning

Key Text: Luke 2:1-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

“A Baby’s hands in Bethlehem were small and softly curled; but held within Their dimpled grasp the hope of all the world.”

– Leslie Savage

Merry Christmas! Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible and shares with us that despite the efforts of Joseph and Mary to find suitable accommodations in Bethlehem, there was no room for Jesus.

Christmas is a festive time.  A happy time.  A family time. A time to remember Christmas’ past – perhaps as a child – when the wonder of the sounds and smells and singing of Jingle Bells warmed and filled your heart.  Sometimes though it’s easy to fill our hearts with everything BUT the main point: the marvelous birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

How’s your heart? Do you have room for Jesus?
