Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/05/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 11:1-2

Description: Most people think the end game of the Bible (Consummation) is for God to bring man back to The Garden.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation, and teaches us that in the story of Redemption, that line of thinking is simply NOT TRUE. SBC logo 204x204

No, Consummation will bring us back to a state far better than Eden…far better than anything we can imagine! 

For sin will be no more, righteousness will reign, and the garden will have been expanded to the ends of the earth…where God will dwell with us.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/31/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 10

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.

But through this vision, we capture a glimpse of God’s amazing sovereignty over a seemingly chaotic world which will one day come to an end — when the mysteries of the Lord Almighty will be revealed in the renewed world that awaits.

Date: 03/24/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 9:12-21

Description: Sometimes Judgment doesn’t come as we would expect. 

SBC logo 204x204

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?

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/17/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 9:1-12

Description:

The skies over the Euphrates swarm with airborne military weaponry: helicopters, jets, and drones crowd the air. And like metal locusts equipped with rapid fire guns in their mouths and bombs in their tails, they have orders to incessantly attack and destroy.

SBC logo 204x204

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?

March 10, 2019

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/10/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 8:7-13

Description:

And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared…to sound them.
The first [angel] sounded, and there came hail and fire….
The second…and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea….
The third…a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch….
[And with] the fourth…the sun…the moon and…the stars were struck, so that a third of them…darkened….

Rev 8:6-12

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we see the first four Trumpet Judgements unfold. SBC logo 204x204

And what we’ll find is that like the first four Seal Judgments, the first four Trumpet Judgments come as a set — a set that, astute readers will recognize, comes out of Israel’s great period of redemptive history…the Exodus.
