I believe Jesus Christ IS the son of God. I believe he was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. I believe he died on a cruel Cross and was buried in a borrowed tomb. I believe 3 days later he arose out of that grave ALIVE! No other man has done this. Jesus is fully man, yet fully GOD. I believe His purpose in coming from heaven to earth was to save mankind from their sin. Sin is defined as those things that displease a holy God. Our sin separates us from God. There is only one way to have our sin removed and that's from the payment of the shed blood of Jesus. How can we have Jesus remove our sin? Confessing that (you) we are sinners, Believing what He did for us on that Cross is true and believe who He says He is. Then confess with YOUR mouth that Jesus IS LORD! (Romans 10:9-10) You are saved! (This information is from the Bible, God's Holy Book.) Read the book of John and the book of Romans. It will help you to understand what God, the Holy Spirit, has started in your heart. Continue reading God's Word, praying or communicating with Him, and attend a Bible-believing church.
As you grow in your relationship with Jesus, He will walk with you along life's journey!
We hope that as you devote time with us, you will be greatly encouraged. This site was created to help you find hope in everyday living- by us expressing our faith in our great God through a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. God's Word is precious to our family, thus the name of this place comes from the book of Psalms chapter 128 from the Bible. Enjoy staying a while and be encouraged! God loves you so very much.
I'd rather follow a fool on fire who knows Jesus- than a man with a double PhD who does not.
1 Corinthians 1:26-29
He that is spiritual is liberated. He is free in the Lord Jesus Christ! Amen.
God is ALWAYS faithful!...'Cause there ain't NOBODY like Him.
Sweetest Name I Know!
"If you don't love Him (Jesus) more than you did yesterday, then you're backslidden."
~God had allowed Adrian Rogers to quote this statement~
~Psalm 128 ~
Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table. Thus is the man blessed who fears the Lord. May the Lord bless you from Zion all the days of your life; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem, and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
This passage from God's Word is where the Olive Shoot received its name.

What you do with Jesus today determines what He does with you when He comes again.
The Olive Shoot.com site claims Jesus Christ as Lord! Everyone will bow (or submit) to Jesus Christ one day and proclaim Him as Lord. If you haven't chosen to have a relationship with Him today by recognizing you are a sinner and need Jesus to cleanse you from your sin by receiving His forgiveness through payment of His dying on the Cross, then please do so today.
Tomorrow may never come
