•February 2018• •Free Subscription• Virtual Edition The Essential Difference The late Dr. Harry Rimmer, while traveling in Egypt, was negotiating with the then Secretary of State, who was a refined and cultured Egyptian. In a conversation regarding their respective faiths, Dr. Rimmer stated that: “We believe that God has given to man three revelations of Himself. First, we believe that He has revealed Himself in the work of creation.” “We, too, believe that,” interjected the Egyptian. “We believe that God has revealed Himself in a book, The Bible,” continued Dr. Rimmer. “We, too, believe that God has revealed Himself in a book, The Koran, replied the Egyptian. “We, too, believe that God has revealed Himself in a Man, and that Man is Jesus Christ,” added Dr. Rimmer. “We also believe that God revealed Himself in a man, and that man is the prophet Mohammed,” said the Egyptian. “We believe that Jesus died to save His followers,” said Dr. Rimmer. “We believe that Mohammed died for his people,” replied the Egyptian. “We believe,” continued Dr. Rimmer, “that Jesus is able to substantiate His claims because He arose from the dead.” The Muslim hesitated, then his eyes fell. He had no answer to that statement. Finally he admitted, “We have no information concerning our prophet after death.” Oh, empty tomb of Jesus! This holds a glory bright That fills death’s shadowed valley with resurrection light; Oh, mighty love of Jesus! His feet alone have trod Earth’s heights and depths of sorrow and made a way to God. -Annie Johnson Flint “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.” - Mark 1:3 Contending for American Freedom • Contending for Fundamental Christianity

For Christ and souls, Ronnie L. Williamson Isa. 40:31 Happy Trails! Little is much when God is in it. These S.S. children (though little) proved that with their very generous offering to help our students in India.

Up from the grave He arose, With a mighty triumph o’er His foes: He arose a victor from the dark domain, And He lives for ever with His saints to reign: He arose, He arose, Hallelujah! Christ arose! Today we rejoice in life, life abundant, and life eternal. Singing as I go, it’s a know so way. Choose if you will a maybe so, hope so, could be so, if I’m good enough or work hard enough so, way. The Resurrection way is the sure way! Arise my heart to shout and sing Christ is risen ‘tis life to bring. All guilt is gone and terror dies When in Him by faith we arise. Above our fears and beyond our faults O what bliss, yea, such peaceful thoughts. To raise our joys and triumphs high Sing of Heaven, to this earth reply: “Remain no longer as a sinner undone Cause He has vanquished and victory won!” I. The Choice Would you dare refuse life and choose death? Would you choose bondage over freedom? Would you desire a drug to cause pain rather 4•The Voice in the Wilderness - February 2018 Virtual Edition

than a prescription to relieve suffering? Choose sadness over joy, guilt over peace, blindness over sight, hell over heaven, - no one in their right mind would give a second thought. On this Resurrection Day, you cannot lose. Choose Christ, and you win all! All that a human being could hope for, long for, desire for, or ever dream of is in the LIVING JESUS CHRIST. Choose Christ and choose life! There is no religion, philosophy, earthly ambition or pursuit nor worldly pleasure that can offer, let alone give, what Jesus Christ can do for the soul. II. The Offer Religion cannot offer what Redemption does. Reincarnation cannot offer what RESURRECTION does. Sensuality cannot offer what SALVATION does. A drugged stupor cannot offer what DIVINE SANCTIFICATION does. Rock and roll cannot offer what THE ROCK with your name on HIS ROLL does! Friendships or even family cannot offer what FAITH does. Satan and sin cannot offer what THE SAVIOUR does. Hell cannot offer what HEAVEN does. Books cannot offer what the BIBLE does. Idols cannot offer what the great I AM does. The offer is yours. It’s out of this world! It’s beyond this world! It’s more than this world! It’s better than this world! It’s not even of this world! ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. III. Your Decision What exactly are you looking for? I have visited the jails and prisons. I’ve seen what drugs, greed, hate, crime, sin, and sex do. Don’t look for it there. IS GOD’S WORK IN YOUR WILL? “One of the most important documents a man ever signs is his Will. I can tell better what a man had in his heart by reading his Will than I can by reading his obituary. His obituary tells the world what his friends thought of him; his Will reveals what he had in his heart.” - A. M. Vollmer For as (a man) thinketh in his heart, so is he- Proverbs 23:7. Out of (the heart) are the issues of life - Proverbs 4:23. A bequest in your Will to The Voice in the Wilderness, Inc. can assure that the outreach of this ministry at home and abroad will continue after you have gone to your eternal reward. Prayerfully consider us in your Estate Planning. Thank you!

What exactly are you looking for? I’ve been to the halls of Congress. I’ve talked to the intellectuals, the wealthy, those at the top of their game. Don’t look for it there. What exactly are you looking for? I’ve traveled around the world. Seen far away places and met many people, religious people: Catholics, Muslims, and Hindus. It’s not in religion. Don’t look for it there. Mahatma Ghandi said, “It is a constant torture to me that I am still so far from Him whom I know to be my very life and being. I know it is my own wretchedness and wickedness that keeps me from Him.” The apostle Paul writes, “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” She was only fifteen, yet a terrible disease struck her down. Her parents stood by her bedside waiting, waiting for that final moment. In a hush, the doctor stated to the grieving parents, “I’m sorry, she has seen her best days, poor child!” “No, doctor,” the weak child exclaimed, “my best days are yet to come - when I shall see the King in His beauty.” On a distant battlefield, a brave soldier fell mortally wounded. Later he was found, lying upon his face, open Bible before him. His hand was stuck to a page of the Holy Book held fast by his own life’s blood that had ebbed away. Carefully, the dead soldier’s hand was removed from the printed page. Amazingly, the letters of the Scripture were clearly traced on his hand. Upon this brave soldier’s hand was this ever-living promise: “I am the resurrection, and the life: He that believeth in me, though He were dead, yet shall He live.” “I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Dear friend will you make the right decision? Jesus Christ offers you eternal life. It is your choice. Right now, will you pray and ask Jesus Christ to pardon your sin, cleanse your heart and life? He has paid your sin debt and purchased eternal life for you. Will you trust Him by faith and receive His gift of salvation? - RLW 6•The Voice in the Wilderness - February 2018 Virtual Edition
