Third Angel: Restless

third angel:restless:revelation 14

Caleb’s ex-partner, consumed with gold fever, found no rest at Caleb’s ranch and soon embarked on another search for treasure in the mountains.

“For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
Hebrews 4:2 KJV

I Will Come Again

treasured letter

Searching for gold in the mountains with his partner and friend, Caleb soon discovered what he treasured most.

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
John 14:1-3 KJV

Mother’s Promise

silver dove

Susanna often found peace among the field flowers on top of her neighbor’s soddy.

“Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.”
Psalm 68:13 KJV

Treasure Repaid

unexpected gift

After the tired but grateful community celebrated Christ’s birth, the sheriff walked with Susanna to his office. A repentant Frederic Bucannon had sold property so that the Agate Beach community could build an orphanage. F.B. had returned much of the profit from the sale to Susanna.
“Best surprise yet around back, Susanna Hueston,” said the sheriff.

“And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.”
Matthew 2:11 KJV

Heart Searching

blue memories

Susanna remembered some of the messes she’d made in connecting with her beloved Sheriff Howie, June and the horses. She also remembered the sweet spirit of forgiveness and grace that brought healing. Not so with Frederic Bucannon, she told the Lord; yet she couldn’t seem to remember his wrongs without remembering hers.

“How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?”
Psalm 13:2 KJV
