Giving God the Glory That's Due His Name   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  February 4, 2018  |  46:38 min:sec  |  Download
It's easy to fall into the trap of asking, receiving ... asking, receiving ... asking, receiving ... and never taking the time to thank God from your heart for what He's done and to give Him the glory for who He is.  With the many tasks on your plate and the tests and trials you face, it's easy to consider God unknowingly as simply Someone who helps you get through everything successfully.  That mindset, however, causes you to miss out on the best part of a relationship with your heavenly Father.


Should Christians Consume Alcoholic Beverages? - Part 2   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  January 28, 2018  |  82:17 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
This is part two of a heart-searching sermon on a very relevant subject for today's church and Christian.  For your study and reference, Pastor John's sermon notes are provided above.  You may also want to read two other documents, mentioned by Pastor John in his sermon. The first is the Assemblies of God position paper Abstinence from Alcohol, and the second is a news article on the "pub church."


(Regarding the AOG position paper, Pastor John makes this comment: "I approve of virtually all that is stated in this article with only one major objection that is not directly related to the article itself: I do not at all approve of quoting from The Message as though that is an accurate translation of God’s Word. The Message is not a Bible translation; it is called a paraphrase. It is actually one man’s commentary, and a very poor, inaccurate one which corrupts the Word of God. I do not advocate its use under any circumstance.  For some simple, accurate info on The Message, read the article Why is the Message (Bible) not safe?")


Should Christians Consume Alcoholic Beverages? - Part 1   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  January 21, 2018  |  63:19 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
In recent years, an increasing number of believers are approving alcohol consumption by Christians as long as they don't become intoxicated.  Many pastors also accept it and are even encouraging their congregants to frequent bars so they can reach people for Christ.  How does God looks at it?  This is part one of a sermon that tackles this controversial topic by carefully examining Old Testament and New Testament Scriptures.


Building the House   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  January 14, 2018  |  51:04 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
The house of the Lord under the New Covenant refers to the church and to the individual lives of believers, whose bodies are the temple of Holy Spirit.  This sermon exhorts you to focus on building your life as a holy place for God to dwell.  This will naturally result in building the church of Jesus Christ.


A Great Move of God   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  January 7, 2018  |  49:58 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
The church of Jesus Christ today needs a great move of God, as was experienced by the early church and was recorded in the Book of Acts.  This sermon, based on Acts chapter 4, examines what the signs of a great move of God are and what precedes a great move of God.
