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 & Fifty

March 25, 2022

Dear friends,  
 In our Bible study this week on Zoom, we looked at Acts 12. In his book “The Challenge of First Century Christianity,” the late Dr. John Moore wrote: “There are some striking contrasts in this chapter: Against the love shown by the Gentile church for the Jewish Christians, Acts 11:29-30, we have the hatred of the Jews, Acts 12:3. Against the death of the apostle James, we have the deliverance of the apostle Peter. Against the massive armed guard is the angelic deliverance.

The persecution directed against the church at Jerusalem by the tyrant King Herod Agrippa was focused on the church’s leadership. He was anxious to preserve the peace in the territory he governed for Rome, so he tried to please the Jewish leaders by this wave of persecution, and began with the beheading of the apostle James, the brother of John the apostle.

It was Herod Agrippa’s grandfather who sought the life of the new-born Saviour, and his uncle Herod Antipas who had tried Jesus, and to whom Jesus refused to speak …When Herod saw how pleased the Jews were at the death of James, he determined to arrest Peter as he was one of the leaders in the church, and to make quite a scene of Peter’s death after the Feast of the Passover, but he had calculated without God! The last time Peter was imprisoned, ‘an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out’ (Acts 5:19). The church used its weapon of All-Prayer against the authority of Herod, the power of the sword, and the security of the prison. When your cause seems hopeless, when all the odds are against you, PRAY!

‘… constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church’ (12:5) – the Greek word here is ‘ektenos’ meaning ‘unremittingly, fervently, and agonizingly, for days.’ John Bunyan said ‘The best prayers have often more groans than words.’ In answer to their prayers, God brought a wonderful deliverance that took place dramatically at the last minute: between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. while Peter was sound asleep. The angel slapped Peter on the side to wake him up, then raised him up, saying “Arise quickly!” and the chains fell off his hands. The angel waited while Peter got dressed and put on his sandals. He then led Peter past two guard posts and the city gate before he departed (verses 8-10).

Peter made his way to the home of Mary, the mother of John Mark, where a large group of believers were gathered together to pray. He would tell them of his escape from prison, then move on for a while.

Peter knocked at the door of the gate, and a young girl named Rhoda came to answer. On hearing Peter’s voice, in her excitement, she forgot to open the door, but ran in the house to tell the good news that Peter was at the gate. They did not believe her and said ‘You are beside yourself!’ When she insisted, they said ‘It is his angel’ (v. 15). Peter continued to knock at the door ‘and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astonished’ (v. 16). How would you react if your prayers were answered? God does better for us than we deserve.

When Herod heard that Peter had escaped, he ordered a search to be made, without success. A day of celebration was called to celebrate the safe return of Emperor Claudius from his expedition against Britain. Herod appeared in his full regalia, and royal robes, with great pomp and ceremony, and sat on his throne. When he gave his speech to the crowd, they shouted ‘The voice of a god and not of a man!’ Herod, refusing to admonish the crowd and give the praise to God, was struck down by an angel of the Lord, and he was eaten by worms and died (v. 23). What a fitting remark by the inspired writer, Luke, ‘But the word of God grew and multiplied’ (v. 24). The chapter began with the death of James the apostle, the imprisonment of Peter, and Herod triumphing; but it closes with Herod’s death, Peter’s escape, and the Word of God triumphing.”

Karen and I had the joy of meeting Dr. John Moore many years ago, when he spoke at a conference of Global Outreach Mission (now MissionGO). Besides preaching God’s Word, Dr. Moore played the concertina. I wonder if he is playing it in heaven, with Karen’s parents accompanying him on piano and organ.

Although we are surrounded by suffering, we can look to the Lord for His deliverance, and rest in His promises that He will never leave us or forsake us.

Scripture for the weekend: “Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” Hebrews 13:20-21 (NKJV)

Thought for the weekend: “It is the whole business of the whole church to preach the whole gospel to the whole world.” – Charles Haddon Spurgeon
