Afterword

How can you know beyond a doubt that Jesus Christ really is the Son of God and the way to salvation? The answer is simple: Try Him! Sincerely ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Ask Him to come into your heart, forgive you for all your sins, and fill your life with His love, peace, and joy.

Jesus is real, and He loves you so much that He suffered for your sins and died in your place so that you could have eternal life in Heaven with Him and His Father if you will just receive Him and His forgiveness and His free gift of eternal life. But He can’t save you unless you want Him to. His love is all-powerful, but He won’t force His way into your life.

Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). He gently knocks at the door of your heart. He doesn’t break it down or force His way in. He stands there meekly, lovingly, patiently, waiting for you to open your life and ask Him in.

Will you receive Him? If so, He will be your closest friend and companion, who will be with you always! He came for love and lived in love and died for love, that we might live and love forever!

You can receive Jesus into your heart right now by sincerely praying this prayer:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God and that You died for me. I open the door to my heart and invite You to come in. Please come in, Jesus, forgive me for all the wrongs I’ve done, and give me eternal life. Amen.

God has promised to answer your prayer, so you are now His child. And He has said that He will never leave you nor forsake you! He loves you that much!

 

About the Author

David Brandt Berg (1919-1994), founder of the worldwide missionary movement known as the Family International, was above all an ambassador of God’s love.

His parents were both active Christian pastors and evangelists, and his early years were spent traveling with them in evangelistic work. In 1941 he nearly died of pneumonia, while serving in the U.S. Army. After determining to rededicate his life to Christian service, he experienced a miraculous healing.

For most of the next 27 years he worked as a pastor and evangelist. In 1968 he received God’s call to take the Gospel to the hippies of southern California. There he and his then teenaged children began a ministry to the youth that grew and eventually became known as the Family International. Today, members of the Family International engage in missionary and humanitarian work in over 100 countries worldwide.

David Berg called on his followers to devote their full time to spreading the message of Christ’s love and salvation as far and wide as possible, unfettered by convention or tradition, and to teach others to do the same.

He also decried the de-Christianization and decay in moral values of Western society. He viewed the trend towards a New World Order as setting the stage for the rise of the Antichrist, a satanic world dictator whom the Bible predicts will rule the world in the last days before Christ’s return.

David Berg’s lively, down-to-earth, and sometimes unconventional approach to heavenly matters makes his writings a unique contribution to Christian literature. He once said of his writings that his aim was to leave his readers feeling “mad, sad, or glad.” Without a doubt, he succeeded in doing just that.
