The Bible presents a clear and superior contrast between Mount Sinai and, heavenly, Mount Zion… as well as between the “church in the wilderness” gathered under the mediator Moses and the “church of the firstborn” who are gathered under the mediatorial ministry of Jesus Christ.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and points us to this superiority, in that Jesus, who is the superior high priest, has brought the superior sacrifice into the superior sanctuary… and in His blood has brought us under a superior covenant.
God does not look at our holiness to determine if we are righteous enough for salvation. In fact, God does not even require holiness as a condition of our acceptance by Him.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that holiness is the evidence of a living faith — it’s the visible fruit of Christ’s work in our lives.
And though this fruit of holiness can be seen as works of righteousness we have accomplished, it is only according to His mercy and workmanship that we have even — and could have even — done them.
Description: There’s no doubt we’re living in challenging times — times in which there is an unprecedented effort to marginalize Christian values.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back our Down Under pastor and pianist friend, Kris Baines, to share the encouraging message that though we face challenge, with Jesus, we can remain unshakable.
For though the world — like never before in recent history — now celebrates and normalizes things the Bible condemns as wicked, sinful, and perverse, we as followers of Jesus Christ are called and empowered to “keep going and stand firm” in our Christian walk.
Description: Sometimes familiar words lose their meaning. The word fellowship is like that. We use the word fellowship as an adjective to describe a church event. For instance, a potluck becomes a “fellowship meal” and just hanging out with other believers becomes “fellowshipping”. The term fellowship though is significant in meaning and must be understood within the context of Christ’s fellowship with His people. As Christ is in fellowship with His people, His people are in fellowship with each other. The teaching of and about Christ become the truth upon which our fellowship is based.
In our message today, we see that there are some who have broken fellowship, they have dis-fellowshipped themselves over the truth. John tells the church that those who have left — left because they never were truly in fellowship in the first place.
Description: Christmas is preeminently about God’s promise of a coming Savior who would rescue man from the curse of the fall. God’s mercy and grace is always seen in His works and in His interactions with man. In the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve shook their fists to Heaven as they rebelled against God and God cursed them according to the covenant agreement. No sooner had the curse been said God also proclaimed the Gospel of a coming Savior.
Description: This book began proclaiming that God has given the believer every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places and now Paul has taken us from the heavenlies and brought us to our knees. Now as we conclude this book, we are reminded that it is all of God and we require His strength to sustain us …prayer helps us remember that.
