|The farm house at Zoar Farms|
Zoar was originally called "Bela" (Gen. 14:2,8), and is also mentioned in Isaiah 15:5 and Jeremiah 48:34. Its ruins are still seen today at the opening of the ravine of Kerak, the Kir-Moab referred to in 2 Kings 3. In the account of the death of Moses, it is mentioned as one of the landmarks which bounded his view from Pisgah, (Gen. 34:3). To think -- it was one of the final places looked up by Moses -- it probably brought him comfort to gaze upon that place of refuge as an everlasting remembrance of God's mercy.
When one looks upon the sun setting in all of its colorful and spectacular glory reflected upon the rolling hills of the Texas Hill Country, one can't help but contemplate the vast mercy of God and what He has done for mankind since the time that Abraham and Lot walked through the Jordan Valley.
