Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Isaiah 2:2-4; 1 Corinthians 13:13,8; Ephesians 4:11-13

Description:

“All good things must come to an end.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monthy Simao preaches his final sermon for our study in the book of Revelation, in which he points out the many wonderful and good gifts the Lord has given to His church in this life. 

Many of His good gifts, however, will come to an end. They will come to an end when this present evil age is over, and they no longer are needed. 

SBC logo 204x204

For unlike the idiom we all know, stated at the beginning, which conveys negative emotions of acceptance that all things are temporary… with God, these things come to an end because they must make way for the better things that have arrived.

Description: All Christians believe in the return of Christ.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao comes to our final passage for our study in the book of Revelation and presents us with a challenge:

If we know our Lord is returning, how does that change us? Does it change the things we think, say, and do?

The church’s response to Christ’s promise to come quickly is to say “Amen, Come Lord Jesus”.

But, is that your attitude? Are you looking forward to the blessed hope at the appearing of our Lord?

This unveiling is actually what the word Apocalypse or Revelation means, and the final chapter makes this purpose clear.

“Behold, I am coming soon.”

For generations of Christians, these are words that have brought comfort, but for some, confusion.

Avg. Guy: “Who is Gog and Magog???”

SBC Host: Speak about the book of Revelation for any length of time, and this is a question that will likely arise.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao shares a section from the book of Revelation that is shrouded in mystery.

Avg. Guy: You’re telling me! It seems that every time I turn around, the maps get redone, and the names I thought I had down, change! Which just makes these “Gog and Magog” characters seem more shadowy than ever.

SBC Host: It can be confusing. But maybe that’s because we’re asking the wrong questions.SBC logo 204x204

Avg. Guy: huh?

SBC Host: Maybe the question should not be the identity of God’s enemies, but rather what happens to them…when the sovereign God and His people are opposed.

Description: The opening verses of Revelation 20 are by far the most argued and most contested verses in this entire last book of the Bible.

Today on Scandia Bible Church, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and explains that the differing end-times positions we see in the church today are largely defined by how one views the millennial period mentioned in this chapter.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and explains that at the end of chapter 19, we are provided with an image of two different feasts.

The first is a beautiful banquet of the Marriage supper of the Lamb — the second, a grotesque gorge, that is even difficult to read about.

God’s judgment and eternal damnation is a difficult topic, but it’s one that Christ and His apostles spoke often of, and therefore, requires our attention.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares that no matter what your picture of Jesus is, it likely falls short of the vision John received in chapter 19.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we are introduced to two women who will be be judged very differently: the harlot and the bride.

The harlot — the great prostitute and idolatress of Babylon — has been corrupting and poisoning the earth with her adultery, and now must face the fierce outpouring of the wrath of the Lamb.

SBC logo 204x204

While the the Bride of Christ has been redeemed and is permitted to dress in fine, dazzling white and clean linen — signifying the righteous and moral acts of the saints — as she readies herself for her groom… who is also the Lamb.

For one will stand as recipient of His wrath, the other, His love.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 18

Description:

Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit…

And the kings of the earth, who committed acts of immorality and lived sensuously with her, will weep and lament over her when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance because of the fear of her torment, saying, “Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For in one hour your judgment has come.”

It’s the funeral of Babylon the Great…the funeral of the Harlot.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation in which we see in chapter 18 the world watching from a distance the funeral service of Babylon, lamenting that their cash cow has met her demise.

“Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth, for in one hour she has been laid waste!”

SBC logo 204x204

But the saints are also watching, and they are rejoicing that God has judged the city that has made itself drunk on the blood of the martyrs.

Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you saints and apostles and prophets, because God has pronounced judgment for you against her.
