Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/15/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 40

Description: 

“Do not interpretations belong to God?”

This was the question the imprisoned Joseph asked his two cellmates when they awoke saddened, not being able to make sense of the dreams they just had.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis to illuminate the significance that this small glimpse into Joseph’s life tells us. It tells us that in even in the midst of betrayal, kidnapping, slavery, and now imprisonment … Joseph’s faith was still in God – the same God who sees every injustice and who is always in control.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/08/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 39

Description: Genesis chapter 39 oftentimes is looked at as an example of how blessings can come to those who act righteously. But is that really what this chapter is here to show us?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and points out that when we remember Joseph’s success came to him as a slave, and then later as a prisoner, it kind of changes our perspective.

What does it mean to be a successful slave or a successful prisoner?SBC logo 204x204

Perhaps God’s intent with Genesis chapter 39 is to teach us something different. Perhaps we are to understand that He is in control and that no matter what life brings – from slavery to imprisonment – we can bear it. Because, just as God was with Joseph, He is with us as well.
