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.

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 Three Hundred & Forty Seven

Dear friends,
 

Have you ever experienced the Lord directing you to precisely what you needed? It might have been a job or a place to live or maybe even a spouse! Last week, I experienced a much less profound experience, but very encouraging nonetheless. I was looking for a certain book and found myself reaching for another book entitled “Good News for Bad Times.” In his study of 1 Peter, Richard W. De Haan writes: “One distinctive of all Christians is that they are the chosen of God. Peter says, ‘Elect according to the foreknowledge of God, the Father’ (1 Peter 1:2). Whenever the term election is mentioned, it raises questions in the minds of many people. They wonder how the teaching that God has chosen some for eternal salvation can be reconciled with the biblical emphasis upon man’s responsibility and upon his free will.”

When I was with Operation Mobilization in Europe, I remember George Verwer saying that God used men like George Whitfield and John Wesley, who held different theological views, in mighty ways. I found Richard De Haan’s comments to be insightful as well: “One reason for the confusion is that people are inclined to take an extreme position. Some theologians might be called hyper-Calvinists. They say that God in eternity past chose some to be saved and at the same time decreed that others should be damned. Such theologians put all the emphasis on God’s sovereign choice and deny that man’s free will has any part in it. They contend that everyone is either predestined by God to be saved or predestined to be condemned.

Other theologians have taken the opposite view, and for all practical purposes deny God’s sovereignty. They say the Lord foreknew who would believe on Jesus, and that He chose them on that basis. According to this view, everything depends upon man’s will. This leads to the misconception that an individual can go through life with alternating periods of being saved and lost. Such believers do not possess the blessed assurance of having been chosen by God nor the confidence that He will keep them saved until they receive their inheritance in heaven.”

De Haan continues: “I believe that the truth regarding election and free will can be found somewhere between these two extreme positions. Both election and free will are taught in the Word of God. We must acknowledge that God has indeed chosen some to be saved, but we must also recognize that man has a will and that he is a responsible moral being. Having said that, we must admit that to our finite human comprehension this is a mystery beyond full understanding.”

Richard De Haan concludes: “Both the election of God and the free will of man are taught in the Scriptures. To top it all off, both ideas are put together in one sentence (John 6:37). There it is! Election and free will in the same statement. God does His part and we must do ours. He does the electing, but we must receive the salvation He offers by believing on Jesus Christ.” He then gives an illustration about a railroad track: “Let’s call one rail ‘election’ and the other ‘free will.’ The theological train of Bible truth needs both rails. If you remove the rail of man’s free will, you crash into the ditch of fatalism. If you remove the rail of sovereign election, you will find yourself in the mire of a works-salvation and fearful insecurity. Both sides of the truth must be accepted and believed. If we gaze down a railroad track to the horizon, we see that in the distance the two rails seem to merge into one. So these two great truths find real harmony in the mind of God.” Taken from Good News for Bad Times by Richard W.

Last night, Karen and I had the privilege of attending a tremendous show at the Bell Centre. Some of the best figure skaters in Canada performed with such agility and strength that they earned numerous standing ovations. This morning, I looked on the Internet to find out how old Elvis Stojko is (he is 46) and learned that he went through a very difficult time after skating with an injury at the Olympics in Nagano, Japan in 1998. For more about Elvis, please visit: https://skatecanada.ca/2015/07/stojko-returns-to-canada-healed/.

Scripture for the weekend: “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.” John 6:37 (NKJV) 

Thought for the weekend: “Revelation means ‘to make known’ or ‘to unveil.’ Revelation requires a ‘revealer,’ who in this case is God. It also requires ‘hearers’ – the chosen prophets and apostles who recorded in the Bible what He told them. Revelation is communication in which God is at one end and man is at the other. In the revelation that God established between Himself and us we can find a new dimension of living, but we must ‘tune in.’” – Billy Graham (from his book “How to Be Born Again”)  

 

By His grace,
