Redeeming the Ruthless [Isaiah 25:1-9; Ephesians 2:1-10]

April 12, 2020


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/12/2020, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Isaiah 25:1-9; Ephesians 2:1-10

Description: The prophet Isaiah painted a picture of the rebellion in the nations: a place of idolatry, injustice, and insurrection; a place where God is ignored and His followers mocked, as man sits in his citadels of strength.

…That is, until God brings man’s city to ruin and his citadels to rubble.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao virtually delivers a Resurrection Sunday Service to our church body as we watch from the safety of our homes during the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 and reminds us that during these times when God brings people low, we rejoice.

We rejoice because God does it to rescue the afflicted and to vindicate His people. But there’s another reason we rejoice…a scandalous reason.  SBC logo 204x204

God brings people low to make the proud humble and remove the strength of the mighty and bring the ruthless to their knees.

And most shockingly, He redeems the ruthless so that they too worship Him.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/01/2019

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 20:11-15

Description: It’s not a comfortable topic…and yet the Bible speaks very directly, and often graphically, about it.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we delve into the topic of judgement, and in particular, the Great White Throne of Judgement. SBC logo 204x204

Questions like: “Who sits on this throne?”… “Who is being judged?”… and “Are believers judged the same as unbelievers?” are all important and valid questions that we will seek answers. 

For though this topic may come with questions and feelings of uneasiness, one thing is for certain: the sure judgment of God awaits every person.

Jesus is Risen. Now What? [1 Corinthians 15:1-5]

April 28, 2019

SBC frame line - current sermons
Sermon Notes

Date: 04/28/2019

Preacher: David Teves, guest preacher

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 15:1-5

Description: After the Resurrection, the disciples had no idea what to do… so they went fishing.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves fills in at the pulpit and explains that even after 3 years of living with Him, eating with Him, and listening to Him, the disciples still did not understand what Jesus was talking about.

SBC logo 204x204

In fact, it wasn’t until after His ascension that they finally knew what to do: Proclaim the gospel to all nations.

But has modern day Christianity faithfully followed suit? …Or has it fallen into a trap of deception — making the gospel into something it is not.

Living In-Between [Romans 1:3-4]

December 10, 2017

SBC frame line - current sermons
Sermon Notes

Date: 12/10/2017

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: Romans 1:3-4

Description: …The “in-between time.”

We all know what it’s like waiting between two events – engagement and marriage, hiring and starting a job, and many others. Yet, what if there was another sort of in-between, an in-between that affected absolutely everything about how we live our lives in this broken world?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, as we move forward in the wake of the death of young Isaiah Simao – the son of our pastor, Monty Simao – we are blessed to welcome to our pulpit the associate pastor of Westside Baptist in nearby Bremerton, Washington, Peter Montoro.

SBC logo 204x204Today Pastor Peter reminds us that as believers, we live our lives in this world in-between our crucifixion with Christ and our coming resurrection. And as we wait, it’s easy to feel as though the struggles we face will last forever. We must remember though, that just as the cross of Christ only made sense to the disciples in the light of His resurrection, so too the crosses we face will only fully make sense to us in the light of our own resurrection.

“Today You Shall Be With Me in Paradise” [Luke 23:39-43]

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/24/2011, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Luke 23:39-43

Description:  Have you ever wondered if a person who had lived wickedly his whole life and was now on death row could be saved if he received Jesus? Well you don’t need to wonder because the Bible not only answers that question but gives us an account of that very thing. The Penitent thief on the cross who was crucified next to Jesus, gives us one of the clearest examples of Justification by grace thru faith.  This man did no good works. He was demonstrably evil, he was a criminal. He knew he was dying and he knew he deserved it.  Find out how this evil man saw his sin, saw his Savior, and then was assured of salvation!
