Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/09/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 10

SBC logo 204x204Description: Genesis Chapter 10 is often skipped over. Most of us struggle through these long and ancient genealogies. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our Study in the book of Genesis in which he takes us through the descendants of Noah in Chapter 10… and shows us that while genealogies are often tedious to move through, God always has a purpose for what He reveals in His Word. Oftentimes to see His purpose, though, we need to view a passage through the eyes of redemptive history. And when we do this with Genesis 10, we see more than a genealogy: what we see is a picture of God’s judgment, grace, and Gospel.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 9:18-29

SBC logo 204x204Description: For 950 years, Noah walked with God. But in the last captured moment of his life, we read that he was drunk and naked and ridiculed by his own son… leaving many of us wondering: “What happened??? He was such a righteous man.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we see that the Bible is careful to record sad events such as this in the lives of great men, to both warn us – lest we also fall – and for us to remember that God alone – not Noah – is the hero in this story (and in every story), and it is to Christ that we are to look.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 9:8-17

SBC logo 204x204Description: When most people consider the Covenant that God made with Noah, they have the tendency to think of rainbows …and not much else.  But in this incredible section of Scripture we see promises that extend to every man, woman, and animal, and even the earth itself.  And in those promises we see where God’s judgment and mercy meet foreshadowing the final redemptive work of Christ.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/11/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 9:1-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: Genesis Chapter 9 put bacon on the menu. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Genesis in which we see that with the flood behind us, the old world is gone – it is destroyed. But through God’s grace a new one is provided…with Noah, in a sense, acting as another “Adam” – and all generations of the earth coming through him. And so one of the obvious questions becomes (besides allowing for bacon) in what ways has God’s relationship with man changed since the flood, and in what ways is it still the same? For that you’re going to have to listen, but one thing is for sure: With Chapter 9, we gain a fuller picture of the character of God, as we begin to catch a glimpse of the depth of His love towards man with the great and incredible unfolding of His Covenant of Grace.

Notes: 

  • Creation Ordinances (Gen 9:1-7)
  • Covenant Stipulations (Gen 9:8-11)
  • Covenant Sign (Gen 9:12-17)

Some Questions Answered:

  • In what ways did the flood change God’s expectations of men?
  • Does God expect of Noah the same things as He expected from Adam? 
  • Is man still in the Image of God after the fall into sin?
  • Does man still have dominion in a world that was wiped out because of man’s rebellion?

A Greater than Solomon is Here [1 Kings 10:1-5]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/28/2016

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Kings 10:1-5; Matthew 12:42

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

“The queen of Sheba heard about Solomon and his connection with the Name of God. She came to put his reputation to the test by asking tough questions. She made a grand and showy entrance into Jerusalem—camels loaded with spices, a huge amount of gold, and precious gems. She came to Solomon and talked about all the things that she cared about, emptying her heart to him. Solomon answered everything she put to him—nothing stumped him. When the queen of Sheba experienced for herself Solomon’s wisdom and saw with her own eyes the palace he had built, the meals that were served, the impressive array of court officials and sharply dressed waiters, the lavish crystal, and the elaborate worship extravagant with Whole-Burnt-Offerings at the steps leading up to The Temple of God, it took her breath away.”
— 1 Kings 10:1-5 MSG

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker laments the great sadness in the world today: that so many know the name of Jesus… yet do not (or will not) grasp who He is. (Even the Disciples who walked with Jesus during His days traveling the  dusty trails in Israel, didn’t understand that indeed He was far greater than even King Solomon). Yes, the Truths of the Bible are hidden only to those who refuse to seek them.

In our sermon, Elder Barker recounts the history of the Queen of Sheba seeking to know whether or not “The Great” King Solomon was as great as his reputation held.  … And that’s really the point: this African queen — so many decades ago — set an excellent example for us today. Hearing of the wisdom of Solomon, she sought him with an open heart to confirm the stories of his greatness.

…”Oh that everyone walking the earth today would come to Jesus with the same hunger and honesty seeking the Truth.”

Floodwaters of Divine Wrath [Genesis 7:1-24]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/21/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 7

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“Then the flood came… and the water increased and lifted up the ark…. The water prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered…. All flesh that moved on the earth perished…. all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died…. They were blotted out from the earth; and only Noah was left, together with those that were with him in the ark.”

(taken from Gen 7:17-23)

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and covers one of the most well-known and hotly-debated accounts in the Bible: The Flood of Noah. Oftentimes, though, with all the attention it garners, in the midst of exerting our focus and efforts in trying to defend it (or avoid it), we Christians miss something amazing — we miss the amazing part the flood plays in the history of our redemption.
