Description: The prophet Isaiah painted a picture of the rebellion in the nations: a place of idolatry, injustice, and insurrection; a place where God is ignored and His followers mocked, as man sits in his citadels of strength.
…That is, until God brings man’s city to ruin and his citadels to rubble.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao virtually delivers a Resurrection Sunday Service to our church body as we watch from the safety of our homes during the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 and reminds us that during these times when God brings people low, we rejoice.
We rejoice because God does it to rescue the afflicted and to vindicate His people. But there’s another reason we rejoice…a scandalous reason.
God brings people low to make the proud humble and remove the strength of the mighty and bring the ruthless to their knees.
And most shockingly, He redeems the ruthless so that they too worship Him.
Description: Sometimes there are places in the Bible that a pastor doesn’t want to preach on – or for that matter, touch with a 10-foot pole! Our passage this morning is just such a passage. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis verse by verse, to show us that even in the midst of heinous sin, we see the amazing abundance of God’s grace towards the sinner…God’s grace, towards us.
Description: Things go from bad to worse for a Hebrew woman named Naomi. Her family suffers from a famine and moves away from the Promised Land to live among the heathen Moabites. Her husband dies and then both her sons die – leaving her widowed and childless in a foreign country.
Description: Ehud, from the tribe of Benjamin, is the second Judge God raises up to deliver His people from the hand of Eglon, King of Moab. Ehud assassinates Eglon in His throne room by plunging a self-made sword into his abdomen and killing Eglon before making a great escape. He gathers the Israelites and leads them to a decisive victory by the strength of the Lord and the land is restored to peace, which lasts for two generations.
