From Empty Tomb to Living Hope [1 Peter 1:3-9]

April 21, 2019


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/21/2019, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:3-9

Description: Have you ever lost hope?

Peter knew what it meant to lose hope.

SBC logo 204x204Today on this Easter Sunday Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao opens the book of 1 Peter to show us that hope fled from him when he watched his Lord die but his hope returned with the resurrection — and he freely shares this hope in his book with discouraged gentile believers — because it was a living hope.

Why Did Jesus Need to Die? [Romans 3:23-24]

April 1, 2018


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/01/2018, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Romans 3:23-24

Description:

Why did Jesus go to the cross?

There are many reasons that Jesus went to the cross. There are human reasons such as Judas Iscariot betraying Him and the Sanhedrin wanting to kill him. …But those reasons see the cross from the perspective of man of things that happened to Jesus – they don’t ultimately answer the question “why.” Because obviously, He had escaped the grasp of evil men before.

SBC logo 204x204Today on our Easter Sunday Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao rightfully sharpens our thinking on this question and shows us that the cross wasn’t just a thing that happened …it was necessary. Jesus didn’t just go to the cross, He needed to go to the cross…He needed to die. For that was His purpose in taking on flesh. So perhaps a better question we need to ask is “Why did Jesus need to die?”

What is the Gospel? [1 Corinthians 15]

April 16, 2017


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/16/2017, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 15

SBC logo 204x204Description: The Gospel is the central message of the church and the central figure of the message is Jesus Christ. Yet many in the church can’t define what this message is. Sometimes they even define it in ways that are the opposite to what the Scriptures reveal…ways that don’t lead sinners to salvation but leave them condemned with no good news.

Key Text: Genesis 1:1

SBC logo 204x204Description: The doctrine of creation is under attack. This is a battle of worldviews whereby the entire foundation of Christianity is being eroded and that erosion has drastic effect on our understanding of the fall, sin, death, and the truth of the Gospel. If we can’t trust Genesis 1:1, where exactly do we start believing the Bible?

Key Text: Genesis 1:1

SBC logo 204x204Description:  The first four words of the Bible, “In the beginning God…” declare what follows to be antithetical to all worldly philosophies and worldviews. God’s existence is assumed instead of argued for as the Creator of the universe demands all His creatures to take heed in a history that begins when there were no other witnesses than Himself.

At the Hand of a Woman [Judges 4-5]

May 17, 2015

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 05/17/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 4-5

Description:  The story of Deborah and Barak and God’s deliverance through the hand of the woman Jael may be one of the most disturbing accounts of treachery recorded in the Bible and yet God delivers His people through these shocking events. In this account God calls an unfaithful general, Sisera, through the prophetess, Deborah, who ruled the people.  Because of his unfaithfulness, God delivers their enemy to the hands of a foreign (and pagan) woman named Jael who brutally murders the enemy general by smashing a tent spike through his head with a hammer.  The Bible celebrates her deed.
