BREAKING NEWS:For the first time in its 93 year history, Scandia Bible Church will break with its long-standing tradition of observing communion on the first Sunday of each month… and instead, will celebrate communion each and every week.
Today on the Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao preaches a special sermon to unpack this major and historical decision.
Simao preaches that while coming to the Lord’s Table weekly is certainly not a command we find in Scripture, we do find it to be the normative practice of the early Church
Simao clip: “It was such a central act that the Church could be said to gather for THAT purpose.”
— centering the service upon the finished work of Christ.
All fun aside… this is a BIG DEAL — one we should welcome, and not take lightly.
The whole community was in an uproar, wailing all night long. All the People of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The entire community was in on it: “Why didn’t we die in Egypt? Or in this wilderness? Why has God brought us to this country to kill us? Our wives and children are about to become plunder. Why don’t we just head back to Egypt? And right now!”
Soon they were all saying it to one another: “Let’s pick a new leader; let’s head back to Egypt” (Num 14:1-4, MSG).
Why would the Israelites — in the middle of the Exodus, after having seen the Red Sea part and manna fall from heaven — want to return to Egypt?
Why would they prefer slavery in the hands of cruel task masters, once again?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and states that when it comes to the Israelites wanting to return to Egypt, a more dramatic example of foolishness would be hard to find.
But, incredibly, there is a greater example: those who turn back from Christ.
Description: Most Christians don’t associate Easter with Passover. But with some study, one can see how they are beautifully interwoven into God’s perfect tapestry. The parallel of the Passover Lamb and our Lord Jesus — the perfect sacrificial Lamb of God — helps clarify in our minds the wonder of God’s plan for the salvation of believers.
Description: John recounts the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry when He attends the Passover at the Temple in Jerusalem. What He finds ignites His righteous anger and His zeal for the House of God is revealed in His actions.
Description: Our passage this morning offers a few problem areas for the exegete, not the least of which seems to be Paul’s apparent misquote of Psalm 68. But a careful study thru this amazing Psalm reveals how a victorious king shares the spoils of war with an underserving people.
