THE SCHOOL OF GOD.

Image
A school is a place of learning where we acquire knowledge and training we feel will be beneficial to us in life. The essence of schools is to prepare us for the future, we don't necessarily go to school for the present but schooling is more for the future. There is a common knowledge humanity seems to have, which is that 'the future is more important than the present'. In the film sequels Harry Potter, authored by J.K Rolling and the lead acting acted by Daniel Radcliffe we see that there is a spiritual school of witchcraft that is as real as a physical school called Hogwarts where witches and wizards are groomed. They learn how to use their 'powers', develop their talents and they are observed in this school so as to discover who is special and what each witch/wizard can do. There is a truth in what J.K Rowling penned about Hogwarts. I believe there are spiritual schools as their are physical schools, for the physical realm shows and reflects the spiritua

Of Bible Schools, Schools Of Prophets and God's Ministers

As we journey through life, we will need training for some of the things we will have to do in life. That's where teachers, mentors and guides come in. God knows the importance of training and mentorship, and He makes arrangement for it.  It's part of God's blessing to us, when we have a teacher, a mentor or guide over us, who shows us the 'ropes' and teaches us what we need to know in the area where we need it. Mentorship gives us speed and helps us avoid mistakes we would otherwise have made, all the knowledge, wisdom and experience of the mentor is passed on to the protege to help the protege on his journey and assignment. Paul mentored Timothy, Elijah was a father to Elisha, Jesus mentored, trained and guided the twelve disciples until He departed from the earth and the Holy Spirit became to the disciplines what Jesus was to them when He in the flesh. The Holy Spirit is our true and ultimate guide and mentor Everything we do should be guided and direct

DIVINE APPOINTMENTS VS ORDINATION SERVICES

Image
All through the scripture  we see men favored by God who had divine appointments. In fact all heros of faith in scripture had divine appointments of some sort, either with God, a prophet of God or an angel of God. Divine appointments are God's acts of love to certain people He has chosen for a position,a  post or an assignment. Divine appointments are events God schedules into the life of an individual that happens suddenly within a 24 hour period. It could come in the form of an angelic visitation, a prophetic encounter, a divine direction that leads to a blessing, an encounter with God or an anointing. True men of God are called by divine appointments not planned ordination services. Eg. Saul, David, Moses, Jesus Christ, Gideon, Jeremiah, Paul the Apostle to name a few. Ephesians 4:11 lists the various positions or offices God appoints His children to in His spiritual service, namely the place of Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Pastors and Evangelists, the purpose of these p

Our Vision, Our Mandate

LET THE CHURCH ARISE!

Image
There is a lot going on in my mind. We are in perilous times, it's not surprising, the Bible did say such times will come and they are pointers to the end times we are in. If there is any time we need the refreshing from God's presence, it is now! That's why I welcome people to our assembly with the flyer above asking them to come for a time of refreshing in God's presence. They need it, I need it, we all need it. If we don't find time to renew our minds and get refreshed in God's presence   It calls for great wisdom to answer the questions in my mind. I'm a deep thinker I grew up around churches and ministries and I have always loved ministers of the gospel and the work of the Lord. Perhaps I should, after all I am a Pastor myself. It's a godly attribute to love God's people and God's assembly of saints. Hebrews 10:25 Anything I write that offends or seems a sensitive issue to some, should be received as thoughts coming from a minis

TIME, TREASURE AND TALENT.

Image
Dear Friend, I like the way Myles Munroe put it, he said when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable! Do you know the purpose for your existence? Do you know why God has placed you where you are? Do you know why you have been blessed with what you have? Do you know the 'hour' we are in, are you sensitive to the times? It's time to serve God with our time , our treasure and our talent . Join us for times of  refreshing in His presence! Come and be blessed, sharing fellowship with the faithful at THE LIGHT OF JESUS CHRIST ASSEMBLY  For our address and further information - www.thelightofjesuschristassembly.org

When His Word goes forth!

Image
When God's Word goes forth from an anointed vessel, power is released to do what God intends. We know this because God's Word says so, Psalms 107: 20 says "He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destruction" God sends His Word to people, situations and circumstances. He does this because He loves us 1 John 4:8 It is through people, through human beings that God gets His job done, His message spread and His Kingdom broadcast, that is why to minister to human beings, God had to take on the form of a man  John 1:14 When God raises an individual to do a job, that individual is empowered by God's Spirit to do what God wants Him to do, the individual becomes an empowered and sent one. Romans 10:14, 15 God is still in the business of raising men to work for Him on the earth. Romans 12:28,29 God's Word is available to help you today in your time of need There is a word for you, in the mouth of our minister! www.thelightofjes

Our church's online home.

Image
It's with great excitement we announce that our church website is almost ready! To God be the glory! The inspiration received by the teacher and Pastor at The Light of Jesus Christ Assembly is to use every available platform to promote God's work among us, which is what we have been trying to do. Social media and the internet is the 'language' of this age and we have been using it to teach, and share God's Word and promote God's work. We have started off by giving our church an online presence and building it from there, from YouTube, to Facebook, from blogging to Twitting all is working together for our good, as they are all platforms used inline with our mandate of  'teaching God's Word and spreading God's light.

Our church Logo Is Ready

Image
OUR CHURCH LOGO . what our church Logo represents : THE GOLDEN CROSS - The cross is the most popular symbol in the world. In our church we honor the Lord Jesus Christ. We have made the cross golden to depict the golden age of the church, we believe the church body is in it's golden age. We have chosen a golden cross because we believe in prosperity as one of our church's 8 core beliefs and that's what the gold color stands for. THE THREE FLAMES - The flames or fire on the top of the cross is symbolic of the nature of God as fire, 'our God is a consuming fire'. On the day of pentecost the Spirit of God appeared on the disciples as flames of fire.  We have 3 flames on top of the cross to symbolize one God who has the ability to manifest himself as 3 distinct personalities. It is lovely when God gives an ideas and inspiration & it comes to fruition.

A CALL OF THE HOUR, A SOUND IN ZION

Image
For the body of Christ Part of the call of the hour is for the saints of God to return to a thorough  knowledge of God’s Word!  We can't take one or two passages/verses from the Bible  anymore and build a doctrine or church out of it. Our spirit man has to be well nourished in an understanding of God's Word. This is part of the reason we have many imbalanced Christians in the body of Christ of  Christ who are misrepresenting their Savior.  Jesus could represent the Father well on  earth because   He was the Word, He knew the Word, He was balanced!  Many believers  today do not know the mind of God because they don't know the Word.  It is not enough to be trained to pray continuously, we have to be filled with His Word so that we don't pray amiss. At the Light of Jesus Christ Assembly, we are blowing a trumpet in Zion, a call to the  saints of God to get back to a thorough knowledge of God’s Word on every subject  that matters to their life. It's when

Partnership and Honour.

Image
Giving honor to whom honor is due As a church ministry we believe in giving honor to whom honor is due.  This is what the Bible tells us. Romans 13:7 One of the ways we do this is by supporting certain ministries we believe in, ministries who have a track record of service to God, to humanity and are truly doing the work of an evangelist. Partnership We have partnered with these ministries so that they can continue to do what God has called them to do. And we will continue to do so until God tells us otherwise.  In partnering with these blessed ministries, we are blessed in return as a church body. As we partner with them, we trust God that God will raise partners who will partner with us to, to support God’s work going on here. It works as a cycle of blessing! Partnership is a way of getting God’s work done.  It is scriptural.  Our Lord Jesus had 12 disciples who ‘partnered’ with Him as well as certain women who supported, even with the treasury of His ministry

Our Logo

Image
Our Church Logo is being designed. The picture above is a sketch of what the church logo will look like, this is not the finished work, lol! but we are excited to show it to you now because it will soon become a part of our history.  In the near future it will be a joy to ponder on the early days, that's why a sketch like the one above will be invaluable. The drawing above is what our teacher and l, Olutosin put together very quickly after receiving inspiration from God about what the church logo should look like. The cross will be golden colored and the three burning flames will be red, blue and orange colors. Each flame will be distinct. The three flames are representative.  What a beautiful church logo it will be when the completed work is done! What our ministry Logo represents: 1)   The cross of Jesus Christ with three burning flames on top of it 2)   The three burning flames represent the ability of God to manifest as three distinct personalities, fir

Our Social Media Platforms.

We are teaching His Word and spreading His light through the following Platforms: TWITTER: www.twitter.com/tlojca FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/thelightofjesuschristassembly YOU TUBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7dSBJKi85VqML5JhpslXnQ (the light of Jesus Christ Assembly) WE ARE ON PERISCOPE, AND HAVE OUR WEBSITE TOO! www.thelightofjesuschristassembly.org

Published works @ The light of Jesus Christ Assembly.

Image
I believe the Bible is a compendium of different topics.  God's wisdom book to us (the Bible) has  about every subject under heaven in it. Within the Bible there are topics such as marriage, health, nutrition, miracles, finances, power, politics, law and commerce. You will also find motivation in the Bible and  inspiration. Motivational books as we know it is called self help. Life coach and teacher @ The Light Of Jesus Christ Assembly, PASTOR Olutosin Ogunkolade has written a compelling work as inspired by the Lord which fits into the self help genre of books, it is titled 'THE DREAMERS JOURNEY TO THE DREAM'. Here, at the Light Of Jesus Christ Assembly we believe in using published works to teach God's Word and Spread God's Light. You can get a copy of the Dreamers Journey To The Dream at www.feedaread.com The Dreamers Journey To The Dream is     a small volume that inspires and motivates towards achieving your dream whatever that dream may be.

The nation of Israel @ The Light Of Jesus Christ Assembly

Image
The Nation Of Israel Dear Friends, As followers of Jesus Christ we have a responsibility to pray for the nation of Israel, in other words we should be spiritual allies to that nation. The Bible encourages us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem Psalms 122:6 We have a responsibility to the Jews, and when we carry out our spiritual responsibility to Israel, the Lord promises us a blessing. A blessing of prosperity and security. ............to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16) The Jews are part of God’s priority. At the Light of Jesus Christ Assembly, we have made it a responsibility to pray for the nation of Israel during our prayer time. We not only pray for the peace of Jerusalem, we support outreaches to the nation of Israel and Jews worldwide. We do this through organisations/bodies that are positioned to do so. Jewish Voices by Rabbi Jonathan Bernis, Christians United For Israel by Pastor John Hagee and the International Fellowship of Christians and

Wisdom @ The Light Of Jesus Christ Assembly

THE LIGHT OF JESUS CHRIST ASSEMBLY Teaching His Word, Spreading His Light! Dear Friend, The Bible says ‘wisdom is the principal thing, and with all our getting we should get understanding’ (Proverbs 4:7) I believe the Bible is God’s inspired Word to us and if God feels we need to get wisdom and understanding, then wisdom and understanding are subjects we have to look into deeply.  We need an understanding of what God’s wisdom is and what understanding is.  We need to know how understanding benefits us as people. The Word ‘principal’ means first or highest in rank, importance, value. It means chief or foremost.  That’s what it means in the Bible passage quoted above. Wisdom is very pertinent. At the Light of Jesus Christ Assembly, we hold unto the wisdom of God and teach it as one of our eight core beliefs. Would you like to know more?

OUR 8 CORE BELIEFS AS A CHURCH BODY.

Image
THE LIGHT OF JESUS CHRIST ASSEMBLY Teaching His Word, Spreading His Light OUR CORE BELIEFS:   THERE IS ONE GOD We believe there is one God.  He has all power and might and dwells in light!  We accept the concept of the trinity as God’s ability to manifest as three distinct individuals who can operate separately.   THE BIBLE IS GOD’S INSPIRED WORD We believe and accept the Bible to be God’s inspired Word, written by men who were moved by God’s Holy Spirit to document God’s thoughts.       THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY We acknowledge the various offices that God calls men into in the body of Christ. Some are called to be Apostles, Pastors, Prophets, Evangelists and teachers. Ours is predominantly a teaching ministry. LOVE  It is our belief that love is the primary purpose of man and the very nature of God! We accept the responsibility of walking in love and understand love to be one of the cardinal doctrines of the Christian faith. In our church we try
