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.

Action Mondiale d’Évangélisation (Québec) Inc is the name of the Québec incorporation of MissionGo

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 & Forty Seven

April 2nd, 2020
 
 
Dear friends,  
                                                                                                                                        

Did anything unusual happen in your family yesterday morning? It did in ours. Keeping the tradition going that one of her parents (I’ll let you guess which one) started many years ago, our youngest daughter hid the remotes for the TV and DVD player. Finding them proved more challenging than Karen and I anticipated, but there were rewards: coins were found in one chair, dust was vacuumed in several places and laughter echoed across our living room.

By now, if you’re like me, you find yourself doing things that you said you would “when I have time.” In addition to reading interesting books, including an account of the Chief Usher’s role in the White House during the administrations of six presidents, I have started playing the piano for the first time in many years. When I was young, I received records from a mail order company and cranked up the volume on the record player, so I could hear songs by groups like Procol Harum (whose name was derived from a Latin expression meaning “beyond these things”), while I painted the fence around the yard of my parents’ house. Now, Karen and I still receive packages at home, but not long-playing albums.

With the “new normal” in effect across North America, many churches are using the Internet to teach the Word of God and communicate with each other, as well as to pray for one other. Last Sunday, Karen and I were blessed to hear two excellent sermons: one given by a brother in New Hampshire – https://nextlevel.church/watch/– and one by Jerad Mellette – www.gracechurchverdun.com. I also listened to a sermon by Pastor Steve Thiel –https://www.christproclamation.org/sermons/sermon/2020-03-29/the-need-for-repentance– a couple of days ago. What a privilege we have to study God’s Word on our own, as well as to sit under the teaching of men who have diligently studied the Scriptures.

One of my favourite authors is Charles Swindoll, who has ministered in churches in California and Texas for more than fifty years. This week, I began to read his book on the life of the apostle Paul, from his “Profiles in Character” series, which includes insightful studies of Joseph, Esther and others whom God used in wonderful ways. Since a friend of ours is living in Birmingham, England, I was interested to read about the evangelist Dwight L. Moody preaching there in 1875. Swindoll writes: “A noted congregational minister and well-respected theologian, Dr. R.W. Dale, cooperated in that enormously successful campaign. After watching and listening to Moody preach and witnessing the incredible results of the ministry of that simple man, Dr. Dale wrote in his denominational magazine, ‘I told Mr. Moody that the work was most plainly of God, for I could see no real relation between him and what he had done. Moody laughed cheerily and said, ‘I should be very sorry if it were otherwise.’ No defensiveness, no feeling of being put upon, no embarrassing uneasiness. Moody was the most surprised of anyone that God chose to use him so mightily.”

Do you know where disciples of Christ were first called Christians? It was at Antioch, southeast of Tarsus, where Saul was born. After his conversion on the road to Damascus, Saul went to Arabia for three years (see Galatians 1:15-18) and then to his hometown for several years. In Acts 11, we read what happened when men from Cyprus and Cyrene went to Antioch and preached the Lord Jesus: “And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a large number who believed turned to the Lord” (v. 21). When the news reached the church at Jerusalem, the believers there sent Barnabas off to Antioch. Charles Swindoll writes: “Revival is not so much about what happens in a church; it is about what happens when people repent of their sins and turn by faith alone to Christ alone. The unbelievers in Antioch and in surrounding towns were doing that in ever-increasing numbers.”

Do you know who Barnabas went looking for when he needed help in Antioch? He went to Tarsus to get Saul (Acts 11:25). Charles Swindoll observes: “Their differences would work for them, not against them. Barnabas was raised in Cyprus – a rural island setting. Saul came from Tarsus, an intellectual center, and had been schooled in Jerusalem in the disciplines of logic. Barnabas was an encourager; Saul a gifted preacher and scriptural scholar. Barnabas flowed with love and great compassion; Saul demonstrated remarkable grit and unwavering determination … with Barnabas at his side, Saul would deliver the theological mortar needed to cement these new believers in their faith.”

Just as Moody had Ira Sankey and Billy Graham had Cliff Barrows and George Beverly Shea to assist them in the ministry, I have been blessed to have several men who have helped me to produce radio broadcasts and teach the Word of God through Bible courses. Thank you for your vital part in supporting this ministry financially and in prayer.

On Tuesday, Karen phoned our neighbour, whose mother has been in a hospital near Montreal. Barbara (pseudonym) was released from the hospital last week, but returned within a few days. Our neighbour’s brother has been her primary caregiver, but present circumstances have heightened the anxiety of the family, as they are not able to communicate with her and find it very hard to get updates on her condition.

Scripture for the weekend: “But as for me, I will hope continually, and will praise Thee yet more and more.” Psalm 71:14 (NASB)

Thought for the weekend: “Ministry takes place when divine resources meet human needs through loving channels to the glory of God.” – Warren W. Wiersbe (quoted in “Paul: A Man of Grace and Grit” by Charles Swindoll)

 
By His grace,
