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 MissionGO 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 MissionGO.

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 Five Hundred & Two

April 23, 2021
 
 

Dear friends,

                                                                                                                                                           
Last week I asked for prayer for Karen as she is having a hard time with seasonal allergies, in addition to having hurt her left knee in a fall earlier this month. Thank you for praying for her. The soreness in her knee has subsided, but she has had a difficult week due to severe allergic reactions. We were surprised to see snow fall, but it is a reminder that life is filled with unexpected events.

One thing that I have learned in recent years is that I am blessed by every book that I read written by Dr. David Jeremiah, who has served as a pastor for many years. In his latest book entitled “Hope: Living Fearlessly in a Scary World” he writes: “One of the most subtle and dangerous errors we can fall into is to view the Bible simply as interesting reading. Yes it’s timeless literature – fascinating, entertaining, and moving. But at all times the Word of God is no mere book. It’s meant to change who we are and how we live. The Bible’s message can’t simply stop with the mind; it must go on to the heart and the will. We are to be ‘doers of the word, and not hearers only’ (James 1:22).”

One man who was determined to live righteously was Daniel. He was among the first captives taken from Jerusalem to Babylon (modern-day Iraq) in 605 BC. An intelligent young man, whose name meant “God is my judge,” Daniel and three of his friends were put in a three-year training course that included learning a new language. In his study Bible, Dr. Jeremiah writes: “Nebuchadnezzar did not simply want to educate these young men so they would think like Babylonians; he wanted to brainwash them into being Babylonians.” One of the many changes the young Jews experienced was being given a new name. Daniel was called Belteshazzar, which meant “Bel protect his life;” Hananiah’s name (“Yahweh is gracious”) was changed to Shadrach (“The command of Aku”); Mishael (“Who is like God?”) received the name Meshach (“Who is what Aku is?”); and Azariah (“Yahweh is my helper”) was known as Abed-Nego (after the god “Nebo”).

Although the Babylonian captors sought to indoctrinate the young men of Israel into their way of thinking and living, Daniel and his friends never wavered in their devotion to God. When Babylon fell, images of the gods Bel and Nebo (or Nabu) would be carried into exile, unable to rescue the inhabitants of that renowned city from their enemies. Dr. Jeremiah notes: “By way of contrast, the Lord would continue to carry and deliver His people (Deuteronomy 32:11).” In reflecting on this, I wonder how often we trust in our material possessions more than in our Father’s faithfulness? God has promised to never leave us or forsake us (Deut. 31:6, 8; Joshua 1:5; and Hebrews 13:5). The following verse – Heb. 13:6 – is one that we ought to remember in the midst of difficulties: “So we may boldly say: ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?’”

Last week, I suggested looking up how many times the expression “Do not be afraid” is found in the Gospel of Luke. If you did so, could you please let me know the total that you found?  

Scripture for the weekend: “I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.” Romans 12:1 (NASB)

Thought for the weekend: “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” – Corrie ten Boom

 

By His grace,
 

Steve
