La Voix de l’Évangile, Québec is a vital part of the extensive radio work of MissionGo

which reaches into many French-speaking countries of the world. The broadcasts are recorded in the studio of the radio follow-up office in Châteauguay.

The ministry began in 1955 in the Back to the Bible Broadcast studios in Lincoln, Nebraska through a staff member who spoke French fluently and had a burden for the French-speaking people of the world. An office was soon established in Aix-en-Provence in France.

In 1974, an office was opened in Châteauguay, Québec, under the direction of Global Outreach Mission representatives, Clarence and Pearl Shelly. At the present time, the broadcasts are aired on one station in Montreal and one in Champlain, NY. Stephen Frank became the director of La Voix de l’Évangile, Québec in 2006. His wife, Karen, is also a representative of Global Outreach Mission.

The weekly French-language 15-minute broadcast features Pastor Michel Martel, a Québec evangelist who faithfully teaches the Word of God. Audio messages (in French only) are available on CDs at a reasonable cost as well as approximately 40 books in French on the Christian life.

How to have Eternal Life
Epicurus, the Greek philosopher, said: « Each of us leaves life with the feeling that he has just been born, » while according to the Arabic proverb, « Death is closer to us than the eyelid of the eye. »

The thoughtful man therefore thinks of the afterlife, but only one throughout the history of mankind has triumphed over death; one who spoke with authority and simplicity of eternal life – Jesus Christ.

What is eternal life?
Eternal life is a life that never ends, and moreover, has a spiritual dimension. Jesus told His listeners, « I tell you the truth, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. » The Gospel according to John 5:24.
His listeners were alive, but because of sin (and all are sinners) they were dead spiritually. Many brilliant men are nevertheless agnostics, atheists, because they are spiritually dead. Their relationship with God is broken, for they do not know Him. Jesus said to His Father, « Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. » John 17:3
 
You and eternal life
« Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made Him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about His Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. » First epistle of John 5:10-12.
The theme of the Holy Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is that of the Redeemer, the Son of God. Over 300 prophecies were fulfilled to the letter in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.It is God speaking to you and if you do not believe in this message, or if you modify it, you make God a liar and you bring upon yourself everlasting destruction, far from the presence of the Lord.But, if by faith you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, you will live forever.
Jesus knocks at the door of your life. He wants to give you eternal life. You can experience the forgiveness of sin, peace and communion with God, and the power of a new and spiritual life. This life also has an eternal dimension; therefore, death is not the end but the dawn of an eternal and glorious day in the presence of Jesus Christ and His Father.
 
How do we receive eternal life?
« For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. » John 3:16. 
What needs to be done to inherit eternal life? We must trust in Jesus Christ. Sin caused death: spiritual and physical. Every man is spiritually dead and all die physically. Jesus paid the debt of our sin and therefore, if we are willing to turn from our sins and trust Him, He will forgive us and give us eternal life, for « the Son gives life to whom He is pleased to give it. » John 5.21
 
Can we know that we have eternal life?
The apostle John completed his first epistle with the words, « I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. » 1 John 5:13. Jesus gave this assurance to the repentant thief, telling him, « today you will be with Me in paradise. » The Gospel according to Luke 23:43
 
Can you lose eternal life?
In this case it would not be eternal. Moreover, Jesus said, « And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that I shall lose none of all that He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. » John 6:39 & 40. Speaking of His « sheep” He says: « I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of My hand. » John 10:28. As Jesus gives eternal life to all who trust in Him, He also keeps.
 
It’s Your Decision « For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son … Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him. » John. 3:17, 18 & 36
These verses in the Gospel of John say that you have the responsibility for your eternal fate in your hands. Jesus has done all that is necessary for your salvation and now offers you eternal life. « He who believes has everlasting life. » John 6:47.That is His promise.
What will you do with Jesus? Draw near to God in prayer and tell Him with all your heart that you trust in Jesus Christ in order to receive His salvation and eternal life.
 
Let us know of your decision so that we can rejoice with you and send you literature to help you in your new life of faith in Jesus Christ.

Aches and Praise Four Hundred & Fifty Four

Dear friends, 
                                                                                                                                         

In looking through a pile of papers at home yesterday, I found a message that the late Ernest C. Manning gave on December 12, 1993. Besides serving as Premier of Alberta from 1943 to 1968, Mr. Manning spoke on Canada’s National Bible Hour, which is now broadcast on a network of radio stations under the direction of Dr. Brian Albrecht, President of MissionGO (formerly Global Outreach Mission).

Mr. Manning’s message is entitled “Which Group Are You In?” and begins with these words: “May I ask you to give me your reaction to something Jesus Christ said when He was here on earth. It’s recorded in the Gospel of John, chapter 14, verse 6. This is what He said, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’  

Before you answer, be sure you understand the significance of what He said. He was talking to His disciples about God, His father. He told them that soon He would be returning to His father in heaven … But Thomas, one of His disciples said, wait a minute Lord, you say you’re going back to God, your father. We don’t understand that. You’ve told us that all members of the human race are alienated from God by sin. We know that God is holy and will not and cannot tolerate sin in His presence. By what way can we come into His holy presence and into His heavenly house?”

After citing the apostle Peter’s declaration, speaking under inspiration of the Holy Spirit, “Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12), Manning writes: “The implication of Christ’s statement and the Holy Spirit’s confirmation is mind boggling. Think of what it means. Every member of the human race is infected with the virus of sin. We’re all sinful by nature. We don’t have to learn to do what is sinful in the sight of God. It comes naturally to us because our sin-infected natures, which we inherited from our parents going back to Adam, are prone to do evil.”

E.C. Manning’s words – “Every member of the human race is infected with the virus of sin” – are timely, as we face a global pandemic. As devastating as COVID-19 is, with more than five million people having been infected, there is something much more widespread: sin. There is good news, though. As Manning went on to say in his message, “God sent Jesus Christ into this world to become the substitute sin-bearer, in place of guilty mankind. He bore our sins on His own body on the Cross. He was made to be sin for us, the Scriptures say, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” He goes on to examine four groups of people based on their different responses to the person and Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“Those in the first group make no response for the simple reason they’ve never heard the Gospel and they know nothing of Jesus Christ … The second group consists of those who have heard the Gospel and know about Christ, but reject the whole thing as irrational and irrelevant … The third group is very large, and in some respects their position is the saddest of all. I refer to those who are frequently called nominal Christians … The last group consists of those who do know Him in that real and personal way.” Brother Manning concluded his message by asking his listeners “… in which of the four groups are you today?”

In the mail that we received in our ministry office yesterday, there was a note from a student who wrote that two relatives would like to begin following the Bible courses: a seventeen-year-old recently trusted in Christ and a thirty-five-year-old has “come back to the Lord.” I trusted in the Lord Jesus as my personal Saviour when I was 17 and have met people in each of the four groups that Mr. Manning mentioned. When I was in France in the 1970s, I met a man who had never heard the name of Jesus. I was so surprised and sad to learn this.

If you have never asked God’s forgiveness for your sins, what are you waiting for? Come to Him today. If you have trusted in Him but have wandered away from following Him, come back to Him today.     

Scripture for the weekend: “Pilate therefore said to Him, ‘Are you a king then?’ Jesus answered, ‘You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” John 18:37 (NKJV)

Thought for the weekend: “To be broken is the beginning of revival. It is painful, it is humiliating, but it is the only way. It is being ‘Not I, but Christ,’ and a ‘C’ is a bent ‘I.’” – Roy Hession (from “The Calvary Road”)

 

By His grace,
