    I just received the money from my foreign cheque.

    I have deposited my foreign cheque last year November.
    Today the transaction has been successfully made.

    I just received the money from my foreign cheque.
    I just get the money from my foreign cheque.

    Which sounds natural?

    The first. The second is not grammatical.

    Re: I just received the money from my foreign cheque.

    2. could be grammatical, but not in the sense intended.
    "I have no job. I just get the income from my foreign cheque [every week]"
    But, no doubt the OP means "got".
