The Book Of Haggai | Haggai 1:1-5 - Then Came The Word Of The Lord  Plenteous Redemption Podcast Haggai 1:1-5 - In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built. Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste? Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.  A few weeks back we looked at the reality that Judah perfectly understood what God wanted them to accomplish. They were sent back to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple, but now we find them in this state of indecision. The excuse they developed to justify this status was the idea that timing just wasn’t right to do what God so clearly asked of them. While in this state of indecision, they had no trouble taking care of themselves and building their own houses while God’s house lies waste. So God sends Haggai the prophet to address his people, and in doing so adds relevance to an idea I believe we need to address.  Many of God’s people the world over have been given this idea that they should not make a move in the direction of service to God until God sends them some external revelation informing them to do what they plainly know from scripture God wants them to accomplish. Without this special external revelation, they feel somehow hindered from moving forward in the Christian life. The plain commands from scripture no longer suffice as our final authority. Of course, we give ascent to the idea that scripture is our authority, but then we sit and wait for a feeling, a notion, a leading, peace about this or that, all the while allowing our actions to display a reality that is very different from our acknowledgments.  The book of Haggai informs us of the danger that comes from spiritual procrastination, especially when we blame God for doing so. Judah received clear instruction from God, they knew exactly what God wanted them to do, but they allowed adversity to prevent them. God had no reason to speak to them further until the work they were given was accomplished.  Instead of busying themselves with that work, they waited for a time that wasn’t coming, that is they desired further revelation from God that was unnecessary. As a result, “Then Came The Word Of The Lord.” Ten times in scripture, this exact phrase is used, and every time it’s used judgment follows.  Plenteous Redemption Podcast:Website: https://plenteousredemption.com/     Plenteous Redemption Podcast: https://www.plenteousredemption.media/    Plenteous Redemption YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption/featured   Plenteous Redemption Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption/   Plenteous Redemption Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sireofages     Missionary Thomas IrvinPlenteous Redemption Podcast

Missiological Exploration | Missionary Cooperation  Plenteous Redemption Podcast Ephesians 4:1-3 (KJV) I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  Many of life’s endeavors require cooperation. The American mindset once looked to the lone rangers among us as heroic. There was something intrepid about a man with an individualist and nonconformist approach to life. In the modern era, this has taken a turn in an odd direction. American society is infested with millennial rebels leading the charge as social media influencers. They blaze digital trails that surely shame the explorers of old. Don’t mistake their softness for weakness; upon exiting their bean-bag-adorned safe spaces, they are ready to take on the world. Well, they are at least prepared to take on Twitter, Facebook, Tik-Tok, you know - the digital world. These models of perpetual immaturity will someday lead our country; a few are now entering into public office of varying levels. Once there, they will apply their social media influencing experience to garner support for socialism, gender confusion, and sexual perversion.  With feeble psyches, this generation has been tossed to and fro by every wind of secular doctrine. Their tossings seem endless; somehow, they have entered a cyclone of perpetual madness. But how have the members of society who once looked at rugged individualism handled the outrageous ramblings of millennial maniacs? Well, primarily through inventive appeasement. It appears clear that prior generations have defaulted to waving the white flag; they essentially advertise their propensity for weakness. This amounts to willful neglect over many years, leading to amoral gender neutral creatures who demand not rights but luxuries such as Starbucks coffee, Apple Computers, and free College. This has produced the dreadful ingredients for a perfect storm, a weak society intermingled with nihilistic brats.  So what does this have to do with partnerships in missions? A Missionary is undoubtedly that rugged individualist who sets out to preach the gospel in the regions beyond. To be successful in this endeavor, the missionary must forsake all and leave for this foreign land. A land where people talk differently, think differently, eat differently, smell differently, and worship differently. The millennial aptitude for expressing unfounded opinions from a Macbook Air with anti-capitalist stickers on the front will struggle in this setting. An excellent way to cope with the culture shock and the immediate onset of confusion caused by the corrupt bureaucratic processes of a third-world nation is to have an experienced partner in the ministry.    No doubt some will complain the idea of missionary cooperation means the loss of that rugged individualism and pioneering spirit of prior missionary generations. You should have thought about that before giving your child an X-box and flooding their minds with television. But regardless of the presence of a pioneering spirit or no, the willingness of a missionary to leave their home country and labor to establish Bible-believing Christianity in a foreign land is admirable. American society and even American Christianity caused the problem of weak young people. We allowed the influx of collectivist ideologies to flood the minds of our children through the internet, television, contemporary music of varying sorts, and through the school systems. The existence of weakness is an unfortunate fact; the question going forward is how do we fix this without allowing the spread of the gospel to suffer?  I submit that missionary partnerships are a great way to accomplish this task. But, as in any area of cooperation, partnerships come with ups and downs - pros and cons. What are the limits of collaboration? How do the areas of responsibility get defined? What happens if the two cannot agree on some issue? These ideas will need to be addressed at some point and in some reasonable way. But the pros of starting a ministry under the guidance of an experienced missionary are tremendous. Navigating the visa process alone could require a degree in indigenous corruption. But one may assume they can hire a lawyer, not understanding the role of third-world lawyers in adding to the corruption. They will happily receive your money and leave you just as confused as you were when the process started. And what of cultural norms and taboos? What will happen in this new country of yours if you wave in a friendly American manner? What if you show someone the bottom of your feet? Have you considered what might happen if you extend your left hand for any purpose? Simple details we would never think to be problematic could stir up a large-scale riot.  Missionary partnerships are invaluable; the help gained through either short-term or long-term cooperation is worth the time and effort. In this broadcast, missionary Keith Stensaas and I will try and work out some details to consider in this area of missions.  Missionary Keith Stensaas:Website: https://kstensaasfamily.com/  Always Abounding Podcast: https://anchor.fm/keith-stensaas/episodes/Fighting-Giants-at-85-e12g9rb Uganda Baptist Radio: https://ugandabaptistradio.com/    Plenteous Redemption Podcast:Website: https://plenteousredemption.com/     Plenteous Redemption Podcast: https://www.plenteousredemption.media/    Plenteous Redemption YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption/featured   Plenteous Redemption Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption/   Plenteous Redemption Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sireofages     Missionary Thomas IrvinPlenteous Redemption Podcast

The Book Of Haggai | Haggai 1:1-11 - Haggai's First Message Plenteous Redemption Podcast Haggai 1:1-11 (KJV) In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built. Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste? Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD. Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house. Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit. And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.  The Lord gave Haggai five messages to preach to Judah. This first message dealt directly with the current state of the people. God deals with what they have been saying and doing, and then he demonstrates the consequences of this approach to life.  These people spent seventy years in captivity because they failed to worship God in accord with his word. When seventy years were accomplished, the Lord sent them back to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple and restore the faithful worship of their God. As we previously noted, they started strong only to lose motivation when trouble arose. Thus just a few years into their return, Judah descended back to the attitude of indifference that previously stirred God’s wrath. They were living as though Babylon was a distant memory and God’s wrath could not be stirred again. The Lord raised up Haggai to correct that error.  Plenteous Redemption Podcast:Website: https://plenteousredemption.com/     Plenteous Redemption Podcast: https://www.plenteousredemption.media/    Plenteous Redemption YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption/featured   Plenteous Redemption Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption/   Plenteous Redemption Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sireofages     Missionary Thomas IrvinPlenteous Redemption Podcast

The Cross & The Culture | Solzhenitsyn's Baptists Plenteous Redemption Podcast The Gulag Archipelago is a comprehensive volume which details the intricate connection between Marxist ideology and the evils of the Soviet system. Collectivist ideologies (Socialism, Marxism, Communism, and Nazi Germany) are the most oft-repeated and failed ideological systems the world has known. Rather than causing the working men to unite, they prove to be forms of societal torture. The extensive three-volume set of Solzhenitsyn’s book began with the release of “One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich.” In the words of Solzhenitsyn himself, the publication of this book caused a dam to break loose. Letters began to flood in detailing the experiences of the Soviet Union’s tormented citizens. An entire country was subject to Communism’s finest, and Solzhenitsyn was going to tell their horror stories. He became overwhelmed by their trust and vulnerability, which produced in him a personal duty to publish this information. Many of these letters came from people who were still subject to their tormentors. This collection of books came to be known, in format, as a work of Literary Investigation. The factual details of one life after another served to build a compelling case against the collectivist ideology that caused it all. Forced societal conformity began the misery; torture by cruel interrogation at the Lubyanka started the nightmare. From there, those who were arbitrarily arrested and convicted were taken to the Labor Camps, the Gulags. Some were given ten years, some were given twenty-five years for the crime of being subject to the Soviet Marxist system. Confessions were forced, or at the very least, coerced. Article 58 made the desire for a conviction easily attainable. Convicts of this sort were deemed enemies of the state and, therefore, political prisoners. Murderers and thieves were treated better than those dubbed political enemies. Under Collectivist systems, political persecution knows no boundaries. Any limitations that may exist are easily and deliberately overcome. To them, what is most important is maintaining the narrative, despite the damage such maintenance causes. The intentionally broad nature of Article 58 and the desire to uphold the narrative meant that people from all walks of life were implicated and imprisoned. Even the captors themselves came to be subject to the very abuse they once administered. Amongst this ever-expanding group was Solzhenitsyn’s Baptists.

The Book Of Haggai | Haggai 1:1-2 - The Time Is Not Come Plenteous Redemption Podcast   Haggai 1:1-2 - In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, [2] Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.   Procrastination is presented here as sinful. God’s people were living as though knowing to do right, and then not doing it was an acceptable proposition. Procrastination eventually turns into amnesia or at least willing ignorance. We elevate excuses to a level of importance equal to that of God’s word. Which then helps us institute selective amnesia, God will be forgotten. But the gratification of our immediate desires never seems to follow the same course.     We often justify our lack of service to Christ by way of noting a lack of active sinful activity in our lives. As though not committing murder or not robbing a bank were so commendable they require free passage to sainthood. We are given no insight into the moral life of Judah in the first chapter of Haggai, but the Lord rebukes their lack of service to him. He did not address idolatry, adultery, or murder. The trouble here was that God’s people were content to set God aside.    Plenteous Redemption Podcast:Website: https://plenteousredemption.com/         Plenteous Redemption Podcast: https://www.plenteousredemption.media/      Plenteous Redemption YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption/featured    Plenteous Redemption Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption/    Plenteous Redemption Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sireofages      Missionary Thomas IrvinPlenteous Redemption Podcast

The Cross & The Culture | America's Coming Gulags Plenteous Redemption Podcast  I pray the ideas expressed here do not prove to be prophetic of America's future. What do we say of a country which votes in oppression? They invite captivity in exchange for a false sense of virtue. But collectivist propositions of this sort may prove more interesting than expected. Social justice, equality, and equity sound great until despots have made all equally desperate. How does one convince multiples of indoctrinated generations with cultish religious beliefs of the terror ahead? At the very least, let us begin here and now, despite the words taken up over past generations to quell this matter. Consider the multitude of lives lost in the name of Utopia. Lives will continue to be lost as men try and build paradise on earth without God. Paradise by way of political dominance prescribed by a ruling class of hypocritical cowards! I will not be an accessory to America's deadly direction - "give me liberty or give me death." But liberty I have, despite the dictates of rulers, I have been made free indeed.  Plenteous Redemption Podcast:Website: https://plenteousredemption.com/     Plenteous Redemption Podcast: https://www.plenteousredemption.media/    Plenteous Redemption YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption/featured   Plenteous Redemption Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption/   Plenteous Redemption Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sireofages     Missionary Thomas IrvinPlenteous Redemption Podcast

The Book Of Haggai | Haggai 1:1-2 - This People Say  Plenteous Redemption Podcast Haggai 1:1-2 KJVIn the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, [2] Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built. This first message is delivered to Zerubbabel - the political leader and to Jeshua - the religious leader. The starting point for Haggai’s message dealt with what the people were saying. How we think, and what we say no doubt eventually affect what we do, or don’t do. So God sends Haggai to confront the people, “This people say” - we want to look at what the people were saying in light of what God said.     Plenteous Redemption Podcast:Website: https://plenteousredemption.com/   Plenteous Redemption Podcast: https://www.plenteousredemption.media/    Plenteous Redemption YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption/featured   Plenteous Redemption Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption/   Plenteous Redemption Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sireofages     Missionary Thomas IrvinPlenteous Redemption Podcast

The Book Of Haggai | Haggai 1:1 - The Lord's Message  Plenteous redemption Podcast  The book of Haggai is unbelievably applicable to our day and time. It seems to me, the study of this book of the Bible by modern man is essential. What’s more, the study of this book of the Bible by God’s people is a must. It would seem my suggesting that God’s people study a particular book of the Bible is a futile statement to make. Any Christian, if asked, would answer correctly that every book of the Bible should be read and studied. But, have you studied or even read the book of Haggai?  After the book of Zephaniah, Judah was removed from the promised land and taken into captivity for seventy years. With the seventy years in captivity accomplished, Judah returned to Jerusalem with instructions to rebuild the house of God. The work started strong but soon shut down. In response to Judah’s neglect of the house of God, Haggai began to prophesy to the people. As such, Haggai was the first prophet to prophesy after Judah returned from Babylonian captivity. Two months after Haggai began to prophesy, Zacheriah began to prophesy alongside him. Ezra tells us that Judah prospered under the preaching of Haggai and Zechariah.  It appears that Haggai only prophesied four months, but the response to his preaching garnered a critical response. In this study, we will examine the source of Haggai’s message to Judah in the hopes of encouraging a generation of men to preach from this same eternal source. I have little doubt any thoughtful Christian is grieved by the world around us as well as by the current state of Christianity. To effect change, our political presuppositions and our enforcement of personal morality will not suffice. We cannot look to a change in political administrations; we cannot depend upon some form of moral evolution; there will only be one source of actual change. The concise ministry of Haggai the prophet makes that source clear, and it is abundantly available still today.  Plenteous Redemption Podcast:Website: https://plenteousredemption.com/  Plenteous Redemption Podcast: https://www.plenteousredemption.media/  Plenteous Redemption YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption/featured  Plenteous Redemption Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption/  Plenteous Redemption Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sireofages   Missionary Thomas IrvinPlenteous Redemption Podcast

Missiological Exploration | Dependence Vs Self-Reliance Plenteous Redemption Podcast Dependency, often thought of in terms of substance abuse, is a much broader phenomenon. Not only so, but it spreads as quickly as a virus from China. Debilitating its host people or country. In our context, dependency refers to an unnatural and unhealthy attachment to others. When strong and capable men find themselves willfully beholden to the sway and influence of outsiders. Thus far, external political forces in Africa have created a continent of perpetual dependency. Maybe even by design, but that is not to say Africa played no role in this state of being. Too often, the oppressed bear as much blame as the oppressor.  But what about Christianity’s role in this matter? By use of the term “Christianity,” I mean in the biblical sense. Not in the world’s overly broad and useless employ of religious terminology. The reference is strict to Bible-believing Christianity; the difference is vast. In what way have we compelled the souls of foreign lands to simply exchange dependencies?  The conflation of temporal self-interests and spiritual interests is easy for foreign missionaries (and political actors) to leverage. Even if the intent is wholly good, the result may be a people dependent, not a people helped. Wishful thinking coupled with ambition tends to overcome objective and even biblical thinking. Christians understand all too well the battle that ensues when biblical truth interferes with emotion-based desires. We arrive at our evangelical destination full of zeal and ideas. Then difficulties arise, we learn that things will not go as planned. We then face choices that potentially produce an atmosphere of compromise.  Human volition plays a significant role in dependency, but throwing money at our ideas, especially when those ideas involve the souls of lost men in deep poverty, only tends to tempt them beyond that which they are able. How do we arrive in the third world ready to save souls, only to find in the end, we have created addicts who are not addicted to the ministry but rather to foreign funds? The moment the source of dependency leaves, the so-called ministry dissipates. We are not accomplishing the lofty spiritual task of the Great Commission by throwing money at souls and situations. We create a dependent people, no more spiritual and no more prosperous.  But what of compassion? We create a false sense thereof when we take this approach to spiritual accomplishment. Just as the politician smiles, knowing the future ends when the funds cease to flow. Much of the third-worlds misfortune is the result of personal mismanagement; how then could they benefit by receiving more funds? Genuine compassion is teaching them, through biblical principles, how to solve their own troubles. That is a biblical means of earning money, biblical principles for managing money, and the blessing that comes when those funds honor and glorify God. In dealing with this topic, we face a complex moral conundrum. How do we manage our spiritual ambition and produce self-sufficient people dedicated to Jesus Christ our Lord?  Dependence vs Self-Reliance - This is the topic of our Missions Monthly Discussion this month: Missionary Keith Stensaas:Website: https://kstensaasfamily.com/  Always Abounding Podcast: https://anchor.fm/keith-stensaas/episodes/Fighting-Giants-at-85-e12g9rb Uganda Baptist Radio: https://ugandabaptistradio.com/  Plenteous Redemption Podcast:Website: https://plenteousredemption.com/ Plenteous Redemption Podcast: https://www.plenteousredemption.media/ Plenteous Redemption YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption/featured Plenteous Redemption Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption/ Plenteous Redemption Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sireofages  Missionary Thomas IrvinPlenteous Redemption Podcast

The Book Of Haggai | A Biographical Sketch Of Haggai The Prophet Plenteous Redemption Podcast Judah and Benjamin prospered under the preaching of Haggai and Zechariah. The Lord sent Haggai the prophet to correct Judah's lack of concern for the house of God. This lack of concern for the house of God highlights deeper trouble, namely a lack of concern for the God of the house. But Judah responded in a positive manner to Haggai's intense preaching.    This is a biographical sketch of Haggai the prophet.    Plenteous Redemption Podcast: www.plenteousredemption.com   www.plenteousredemption.media   www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption   www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption     Missionary Thomas Irvin Plenteous Redemption Podcast

The Book Of Haggai | Zerubbabel - A Biographical Sketch   When Judah was taken into captivity, the time of the Gentiles was in full effect. Judah's subsequent return to Jerusalem seventy years later was accomplished under the guidance and direction of the Gentile king of Persia, Cyrus. From this point forward Israel would be dominated by Gentile powers, until the return of Jesus Christ at his second coming.  Cyrus appointed Zerubbabel, as governor over Judah, but Israel would remain many days without a king. A brief look through the Old Testament at the word “governor” will reveal its typical use refers to Gentile powers appointing someone as head over a region or a people. The point here is that Israel will not be establishing a new king, they are subject to the Gentiles until the Lord himself comes to set this matter straight. www.plenteousredemption.com www.plenteousredemption.media www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption   Missionary Thomas Irvin Plenteous Redemption Podcast

Plenteous Redemption Podcast The Cross & The Culture | The Cult Of Critical Race Theory In March 1883, Karl Marx passed from this life into eternity. A basic understanding of his thoughts regarding the God of heaven and earth would lead one to believe he lifted up his eyes in hell, being in torment. Reportedly nine people attended his funeral; Marx was by no means the beloved philosopher he appears to be today. The nine that stood among his graveside, assuming there were no hopes of collecting money most assuredly owed them, may have thought his wretched philosophy would die with him. Unfortunately, the more than one hundred million dead souls, whose blood scattered throughout the twentieth century, as well as the sudden resurgence of Marxist ideas in the twenty-first century, proved such a thought to be incorrect.  Fortunately, men like Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and George Orwell endured to the end of even their own presuppositions. They lived to tell of the torture, control, and death caused by the implementation of Marxist philosophy. But we have come so far since that time, right? Morality has evolved, right? Solzhenitsyn made it shameful in his day to declare oneself a Marxist, and yet, here we are again.    www.plenteousredemption.com www.plenteousredemption.media www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption   Missionary Thomas Irvin Plenteous Redemption Podcast

Plenteous Redemption Podcast The Book Of Haggai | Darius The King - A Biographical Sketch Haggai 1:1 - In the second year of Darius the king   This podcast will serve as a biographical sketch of Darius, the king. At times called Darius the Persian or Darius the Median. As we discussed in the previous podcast, the book of Ezra details the return of Judah to Jerusalem. Upon arrival they began to rebuild the temple, only to be forced to stop by the decree of Artaxerxes the king. In time God raised up Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the prophet to stir the hearts of the people. The time in which they prophesy is dated by the reign of Darius the king. Darius also played a special role in further assisting Judah in their completion of the temple.   Who is Darius the king, and why was he so zealous to assist Judah in the completion of God’s temple? www.plenteousredemption.com www.plenteousredemption.media www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption www.facebook.com/plenteousredemption   Missionary Thomas Irvin Plenteous Redemption Podcast

Plenteous Redemption Podcast The book of Haggai Join me as we study through the Bible book of Haggai: Beginning with a historical introduction to the book. Plenteous Redemption Podcast and the YouTube channel have been going through some significant changes recently; I have also been preparing a permanent recording video and audio. I have many new segments upcoming, including a monthly discussion regarding important topics related to missions that will include a co-host missionary Keith Stensaas. Brother Keith has a wealth of knowledge that extends from his ample experience. Brother Keith also moved his radio and Podcast online; it is no longer being broadcast here locally in Uganda; if you are interested in learning more about him and his ministry, please visit Uganda Baptist Radio; I will place a link to the website in the description below. As for my family and me, we are getting settled here in Uganda. Starting Monday, June 10th, Uganda went back into a large-scale lockdown; if you would please pray for us as we navigate the pandemic and attempt to respect government demands. With that news out of the way, I am excited to get back into our study through the book of Haggai. I have been offline for some time making preparations; I thank you for your patience and hope you enjoy the future look and format of the podcast. We last left off with Judah back in Jerusalem, building the altar and preparing to lay the foundation for the temple. Soon, the prophets Haggai and Zechariah would begin to make God's word known. www.plenteousredemption.com www.plenteousredemption.media www.youtube.com/c/PlenteousRedemption Missionary Thomas Irvin Plenteous Redemption Podcast

Missionary Thomas Irvin

Born September 24, 1981, in Memphis, TN. I was few days and full of trouble. A stillborn child, I entered this world needing resuscitation. I grew up in Memphis, eventually joining the U.S. Air Force, I escaped the rebellious and the bad city.

I left for boot camp in 2002, by 2006 I was a civilian defense contractor in Saudi Arabia. October 2010 I was confronted with my sin and called on the name of the Lord. Romans 5:1-6 was instrumental in my salvation, after a tumultuous life I desired peace with God,

From there I took flight for Egypt where I had the privilege of fellowship with a godly missionary family who taught me to serve the Lord. From Egypt, I moved to Florida for the Bible Baptist Church of Deland. While in Bible school, I took one last defense contract in Afghanistan.

At Camp Leatherneck, I taught the Bible in the chapel weekly. Men from Uganda, Africa came regularly, they were wonderfully receptive. After returning to Florida, my wife and I would take a trip to Uganda, Africa. This is the place we would be ambassadors for Christ.
