Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/19/2022

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 13:8

Description:  

In the fifth century, the philosopher Heraclitus observed,

“There is nothing permanent except change.” 

To be clear, he wasn’t rejoicing in new things but pessimistically concluding that all good things come to an end.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us how as Christians we can have an entirely different outlook on life because we know the unchanging One.

While it is true that changes often happen for the worse, it is also true that the Lord Jesus never changes; and as He helped the saints of the past, He will also help us in the present, and even the future — for what is unknown to us is known to Him, and He will prepare our way.

Remember the Former Days [Hebrews 10:32-35]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/17/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 10:32-35

Description:

Remember the “Good Ol’ Days”?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that when we encounter difficult times, it’s natural for us to remind ourselves of former days that were better — probably because we feel that doing so will give us the needed courage to face our current challenge.

The writer of Hebrews takes the opposite approach, though.  Instead of recalling former times of ease, he tells his readers to recall former times of hardship! … times of affliction and persecution.

Why?

Because when we remember God’s past faithfulness during trying times, we are encouraged to persevere…in the hope of our eternal reward.

Sharing the Sufferings of Christ [1 Peter 4:12-14]

November 14, 2010

Sermon Notes

Date: 11/14/2010

Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder

Series: 1 Peter

Key Text: 1 Peter 4:12-14

Description: In these verses Peter gives the climax of his urgent warning and strengthening of the church against the terrible persecution, already under way, but soon to issue in the death of countless numbers of the faithful. Although Peter primarily had in mind the prophetic destruction of Jerusalem, it should never be overlooked that the event itself was a type of the ultimate judgment of the Second Coming, giving all of the apostle’s teaching here a spiritual application for all generations to come.
