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.

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.

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 Two Hundred & Eighty Eight

Dear friends,  

 

Although Spring is only a few days away, a powerful storm that brought lots of snow to Eastern Canada and the U.S. Northeast this week left many people wishing they were somewhere else. It reminded me of 1971, when my father and I shoveled all weekend in early March, when Montreal received one of the largest snowfalls on record. A couple of months later, I attended my first Stanley Cup final game, when the Chicago Blackhawks were the visitors at the Forum. This Tuesday, the Blackhawks played at the Bell Centre, while a blizzard raged outside. Was this a preview of this year’s Stanley Cup final? Montreal fans hope so, as do many people in Châteauguay, the hometown of Corey Crawford, Chicago’s outstanding goaltender.

In the past two editions of this blog, I have written about Christian doctrines that the late G. Christian Weiss examined in his book “The Heart of Missionary Theology.” After the apostle Paul calls on believers to pray for all people, the essential unity of God is asserted. The love and concern of God for mankind is declared in 1 Timothy 2:3-4.

The Bible has rightly been called “God’s love letter to mankind.”  From the prophets (Jeremiah 31:3; Isaiah 45:22) to the psalmists (Psalm 86:15; 107:1), the Old Testament declares that God’s boundless love extends to all humanity. The love of God is a major theme of the New Testament, including the first epistle of John, which explores this doctrine in depth. Many hymns, including my favourite – “O How I Love Jesus” – extol this marvelous attribute of God.

How does the love of God relate to world missions? As Weiss states: “In order for people to be saved from their sins, they must come to a knowledge of God. They must have true knowledge of the one and only God and of Jesus Christ, the divine Son whom the Father sent into the world to be our Redeemer. People must come to a personal relationship to the one and only true God, revealed in the Bible. This demands world evangelization. The mission of proclaiming the gospel throughout the world is an essential element in the salvation of mankind. The words of Jesus in His prayer to the Father before His arrest and crucifixion clearly show this. In that great intercessory prayer He said, “This is life eternal, that they might know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent” (John 17:3).

A brother who has served the Lord for many years recently spoke about the supreme task of the church. You can hear Roger Elfstrom’s message at: www.cheshirebible.org.

Scripture for the weekend: “We love, because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 (NASB)

Thought for the weekend: “Christian mission is cooperation with divine love.” – G. Christian Weiss
 
 

By His grace,
