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.

Dear friends,

In my blog post last week, I gave an assignment: to read Luke 10 and note when Jesus mentions the Father and the Holy Spirit. Just before “a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, ‘Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?’ (verse 25) Jesus welcomed those whom He had sent “two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go” (verse 1). After the seventy men (or seventy-two men according to some manuscripts) “returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name’ (verse 17), Jesus “rejoiced in the Spirit and said, ‘I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him’ (verses 21 and 22). The Lord Jesus was in constant communion with His Father and the Holy Spirit. 

We looked at the context of the story of the Good Samaritan in last week’s blog post: believers are to be the Lord’s ambassadors, neighbours, and worshippers. In the jubilation expressed by the seventy men, Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe observes another threefold description:“There is a threefold joy here: the joy of service (Luke 10:17-19), the joy of salvation (Luke 10:20), and the joy of sovereignty (Luke 10:21-24). It is interesting that there are three men on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho who are described in Jesus’ story, which may have reported an actual incident or a parable. In either case, Jesus told about a man who was beaten by thieves, who left him “half dead” (v. 30). In his Study Bible, Dr. David Jeremiah observes: “The narrow road from Jerusalem to Jericho, about 17 miles long, was notoriously dangerous for travelers. It descended some 3,600 feet, and its short curves provided excellent hiding places for bandits. The excess of thieves earned this thoroughfare a name that means ‘the pass of blood’ or ‘the road of blood.’”

Why didn’t the priest and the Levite stop when they saw the wounded man? The priest might have been in a hurry to get home, weary after serving in the temple. He may have thought that thieves left the injured man there so they could rob him too. Whatever excuse he thought of, the priest “passed by on the other side” (v. 31). The Levite may have thought that somebody else was likely to stop after he “came and looked” (v. 32). If we were ranking the reactions of these two men, we would give the priest a zero and the Levite a half-point, for at least looking at the wounded man. Since neither man did anything to help the victim, they both were guilty of inaction and indifference. As Paul Harvey used to say in his stories on the radio, “the rest of the story” is not only surprising, but also satisfying. Instead of saying that a Jewish man stopped and helped the victim, Jesus said that “a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion … and took care of him” (verses 33 and 34). The lawyer would have been shocked to hear that a Samaritan man was the hero of the story. 

Who were the Samaritans? Dr. Jeremiah writes: “In 722 BC, Assyria sent the defeated northern kingdom of Israel into exile, immediately deporting 20,000 Hebrews. The conquering Assyrians brought in foreigners to replace the deported Israelites, which led to the intermarriage of Jews and Gentiles. Jews of pure lineage despised the progeny of these mixed marriages.

Eventually, so much animosity arose between the full-blooded Jews and these mixed-blood Jews, or ‘Samaritans’ (so-called because they lived in Samaria), that the latter separated and started their own religion, building their own temple on Mount Gerizim.” In John 4, we read of the encounter that Jesus had with a Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. An assignment for next week: read John 4 and note the changes in the woman’s attitude as she speaks with Jesus.

Back to the story of the Good Samaritan, we see that he not only took the time to treat the victim’s wounds, he took him to an inn and gave money to those who would care for him. Even more than that, he promised to return and reimburse the caregivers for any expenses they would incur. What a powerful demonstration of mercy and love! May we also reach out to those who are helpless spiritually, giving them the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ.

Scripture for the weekend: “But He said, ‘More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!’” Luke 11:28 (NKJV)

Thought for the weekend: “All love comes from God; if we’re not receiving the steady flow of God’s love ourselves, we’ll have none to give away.” – Winn Collier in “Walking Free” published by Our Daily Bread Publishing, Grand Rapids, MI
