abraham-sarah-and-hagarYour patience has run out… and, frankly, your faith is wavering.

Ever gotten to that place? Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that Abram’s wife, Sarai, has. In fact, her experience was such that she attempted – by her own effort – to bring about the promises of God. The results were disastrous.

Notes:

  1. BEWARE of trying to make something happen when your faith grows thin.
  2. BEWARE of sinful solutions, because they’ll bring about Disastrous Consequences.
  3. HAVE FAITH in God because He defends the defenseless.
  4. HAVE FAITH in God because His timing is not ours.

No Room for Jesus [Luke 2:1-7]

Sermon Notes

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Series: Advent, Christmas Morning

Key Text: Luke 2:1-7

“A Baby’s hands in Bethlehem were small and softly curled; but held within Their dimpled grasp the hope of all the world.”

– Leslie Savage

Merry Christmas! Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible and shares with us that despite the efforts of Joseph and Mary to find suitable accommodations in Bethlehem, there was no room for Jesus.

Christmas is a festive time.  A happy time.  A family time. A time to remember Christmas’ past – perhaps as a child – when the wonder of the sounds and smells and singing of Jingle Bells warmed and filled your heart.  Sometimes though it’s easy to fill our hearts with everything BUT the main point: the marvelous birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

How’s your heart? Do you have room for Jesus?

For Unto Us a Child is Born [Isaiah 9:1-7]

December 18, 2016

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/18/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Advent

Key Text: Isaiah 9:1-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: The birth announcement of Jesus was not a time of joyful anticipation… but anticipation in the midst of darkness, sin, and pain. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast as we move towards Christmas this Advent Season, we are reminded that 700 years before the birth of Christ, the prophet Isaiah described the coming Messiah in terms that sounded too good to be true:

Not only will He be King, but He will rule with justice and righteousness; He will increase the nation; He will deliver us from our enemies and bring about a peace that will never end.  And His kingly titles shall be Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Peace.

The Cutting of a Covenant [Genesis 15:1-21]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/11/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 15

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

“Genesis Chapter 15 may well be one of the MOST IMPORTANT chapters in the Old Testament.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis, where we find ourselves in this very important 15th chapter. And as Pastor Simao will will develop in our message today: nowhere else will you find the Covenant of Grace so well pictured… and the Doctrine of Justification by Faith Alone so beautifully stated, than in this chapter. In fact, the 15th chapter of Genesis is so important that even the Apostle Paul would end up using it to develop the Doctrine of Justification in his letters to the Romans and the Galatians.

King of Righteousness. King of Peace. [Genesis 14:1-24]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/04/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 14; Hebrews 7

SBC logo 204x204Description: Melchizedek.

melchizedekPerhaps one of the most mysterious characters of the Old Testament. 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and explains that Melchizedek was not only the king of Salem (a place that we presently identify as Jerusalem), but he was also a priest of God. What made this king and priest  mysterious, though, was that he foreshadowed – and pointed expectations forward – to the perfect, Kingly reign and Priesthood of Jesus Christ.

Come to Me [Isaiah 55:1-13]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/27/2016

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Isaiah 55

SBC logo 204x204Description: “Come”…. The inviting, guiding word seen throughout the Bible. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker shows us that the word “come” is found all throughout the Bible; in fact, the phrase “come to Me” is found 335 times! And in our text today out of Isaiah 55, we see that the word “come” appears three times in just the first verse alone! It’s a verse that begins a beautiful picture of the overflow of the results of the work Jesus did on the cross to make our salvation possible. And thus, in a sense, making the Bible one great, loving invitation to fallen humanity.
