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

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, six stations in northern Ontario, seven stations in Atlantic Canada 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.
 
Action Mondiale d’Évangélisation (Québec) Inc is the name of the Québec incorporation of Global Outreach Mission.

1. WE BELIEVE the Bible to be verbally inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

2. WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: FatherSon and Holy Spirit.
 
3. WE BELIEVE in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
 
4. WE BELIEVE that all men have sinned and for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
 
5. WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
 
6. WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
 
7. WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ

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 Praises

Aches and Praise Three Hundred & Twenty

Dear friends,  

 

Karen and I had the privilege of being with many wonderful friends and relatives in Ontario this past week. A couple of highlights were watching a film in Bethel Baptist Church in Fergus about Martin Luther (in anticipation of the upcoming 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation) and being invited to speak at a meeting of seniors in Redeemer Bible Church in Niagara Falls. One of the pastors, named Stephen, led a beautiful time of worship and then one of the ladies on the Missions Committee read the following as she recalled the hard work of the Search Committee six years earlier, in order to find Stephen:
 

            “Let me report on how vigorous and extensive the Committee was in their search on behalf of our church, and they were very thorough in checking references as well. There were 15 different candidates that were interviewed, so allow me to tell you a bit about them.

  1. Adam was first to be interviewed. He was a good man, but had problems with his wife not being obedient. Also, one reference told of how his wife and he enjoyed walking in the woods, pretty scantily-dressed, so his name was discarded.

 

  1. Then they interviewed Noah. They discovered that he was prone to some pretty unrealistic building projects, so his name was rejected. 

                                                                                  

  1. Next, they interviewed Abraham, but one of the references reported that he claimed his wife was his sister, which just about created a scandal, so they decided to find a man with better integrity.

 

  1. The next candidate interviewed was Joseph. He truly was a big thinker, and looked like a very promising candidate. But references reported that he was a braggart, believed in dream interpretations, and had a prison record, so his name was dumped as well.

 

  1. The next name on the list was Moses: a modest and meek man, but a very poor communicator, even stuttering at times. And references showed that sometimes he blew his stack and acted pretty rashly. Some said he left the country at one point over a murder charge. So, of course, his name was dumped.

 

  1. David was the next candidate. He really appeared to be the most promising leader of all until it was discovered that he had an affair with his neighbour’s wife.

 

  1. Solomon was next. He was a great preacher, but the Search Committee knew that the church would not approve of all of his wives. They were tempted to hire him, though, because it would really have helped church attendance.

 

  1. The next candidate was Elisha. He appeared to have an amazing résumé, until it was reported that he had lived with a single widow while at his former church, and some thought that type of reputation was pretty dicey.

                                                                        

  1. Hosea was next, and he appeared to be a very tender and loving pastor, but the Search Committee knew that the congregation would totally disapprove of his wife’s occupation.

 

  1. Jeremiah’s résumé really looked promising, but during interviews it became evident that he was emotionally unstable, alarmist, negative, always lamenting things.

 

  1. Next Alan got a phone call from Jonah. But when Jonah told him he had refused God’s call into ministry until he was forced to obey, and then proceeded to tell Alan a big fish story, well Alan just did something that is so out of character for him … he just hung up on him.

 

  1. Well the next candidate was John. He said he was a Baptist, but he definitely didn’t dress like one. He had slept in the outdoors for months on end, had a weird diet, and had a record of provoking denominational leaders, so he definitely did not appear to be a good candidate for the church.

 

  1. Peter was the next very interesting candidate, but he had a bad temper – and was even known to curse, so he was discarded early in his first interview.

 

  1. When the search committee interviewed Paul, they were sure they had the right man. He was a powerful CEO type leader and a fascinating preacher. However, when it was discovered that had been known to preach all night, he too was rejected.

 

  1. Stephen was the last person that they interviewed. He was found to be a man of great faith and power, and had a reputation of doing great wonders and miracles while working with people. His references said that when disputes arose among people that he spoke with great wisdom. Some of his references said that his faith was so strong that his face looked like that of an angel.”

 

Then Pastor Stephen declared that he remembered what happened to Stephen in the Bible: he was martyred! Someone spoke up and said “Just give it time!” It is good to laugh and share one another’s joys, as well as sorrows. May the Lord be glorified in His church!

Scripture for the weekend: “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22 (NASB) 
 
Thought for the weekend: “The fool has two habits that get him or her in trouble: closing the mind while opening the mouth. Instead of being receptive to other points of view, the foolish person wants to share only one perspective, that of his or her own heart. The result is self-inflicted harm.” – Dr. David Jeremiah (from his Study Bible)
 

By His grace,

 

Steve
