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 Five

Dear friends, 
                                                                                                                                                   

Yesterday, the temperature soared to 36 degrees Celsius in Montreal, smashing the record for the highest recorded temperature on that date in the metropolis. What a change from having snow fall less than three weeks ago! Life in Quebec is anything but dull, that’s for sure.

For the past couple of weeks, Karen and I have been digging out weeds and planting flowers, while our daughter, Bethany, has planted a vegetable garden. It is wonderful to see the variety that God created in all the shapes and colours of flowers and vegetables, as well as animals and other forms of life.

In his study of Psalm 23, David Roper writes: “The desert is one of the best places in the world to learn. There are few distractions and there is little that can be used. In such a place we’re more inclined to think about the meaning of things than about what those things provide.” Before the winter ended, life as we knew it changed suddenly as a pandemic swept across the world. To some, confinement feels like being in the desert: lots of time to do little. Rather than look at what we can no longer do, we can concentrate on what the Lord has given us: time to read His Word and learn from Him.

In his Study Bible introduction to the book of 1 Samuel, Dr. David Jeremiah writes: “Change was in the wind in Israel, and to Samuel – the elderly prophet and leader of the nation – those winds were bitter and cold. His own sons had shown themselves unworthy to lead the nation as judges, and the elders of the land had made their desires known in no uncertain terms: ‘Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations’ (8:5).” Just like Adam and Eve, who experienced separation from God because of their sin, the people of Israel went through the wilderness physically in the time of the Exodus, as well as spiritually, as they sought substitutes for the sweet things of God.

Dr. Jeremiah observes: “During the turbulent period of the judges, many of God’s people had adopted their neighbors’ gods, moral standards, and practices. And now they wanted to adopt their ways of governance. The Lord was willing for Israel to have a king – His own Son would reign one day. The people’s sin was in wanting a king ‘like all the other nations.’”

Many years after the people of Israel clamored for a king, the Son of God walked through Israel and taught like no one had ever taught. Jesus was asked by the Pharisees and Herodians whether it was lawful to pay taxes to Caesar. This question came right after Jesus told a parable about a wedding feast (Matthew 22:1-14), in which a king arranged a marriage for his son and sent servants to call those who were invited to the wedding. Near the end of the parable, we see that the king told his servants to bind the man who did not have on a wedding garment.

In his comments on this parable, Dr. Jeremiah writes: “For the priests and scribes, the message is that the call of the gospel went out to the whole world, but to the Jewish people first. Relatively few accepted the Lord’s invitation to eternal life, so the invitation was extended to Gentiles as well. To participate in the great feast of God, one must not only be invited, but also put on the king’s wedding clothes – the righteousness of Christ, accepted by grace through faith.”

Now let’s look at how Jesus answered the Pharisees and Herodians. First of all, He called them “hypocrites” because He knew that they “plotted how they might entangle Him in His talk” (Matthew 22:15). He used a visual – a denarius – to make His point: “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s” (v.21). Then Matthew records: “When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way” (v. 22).

As we reflect on the teachings of the Lord Jesus and meditate on the Word of God, may we never stop marvelling at His wisdom and love.

Scripture for the weekend: “Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but counselors of peace have joy.” Proverbs 12:20 (NKJV)

Thought for the weekend: “The words of the Lord are seeds sown in our hearts by the sower. They have to fall into our hearts to grow. Meditation and prayer must water them and obedience keep them in the light. Thus they will bear fruit for the Lord’s gathering.” – George MacDonald (quoted in “The Lord is My Shepherd” by David Roper, Our Daily Bread Ministries, Grand Rapids, Michigan)

  
By His grace,
