Only do not rebel against the Lord, neither fear the people of the land, for they are bread for us. Their defense and the shadow [of protection] is removed from over them, but the Lord is with us. Fear them not.

What comforts me now is that I live in the midst of squatters where this village has been abandoned by the owners after the death of the husband, and now this village is indwelt by countless squatters. What's more my son and wife are studying in Manila and I am left alone with the dogs and cats, but I'm really not alone because the LORD OF HOSTS - the Warrior One - is always with me, and the rests of the squatters trying to get a piece of this property are helpless without the LORD JESUS in their lives, but will they really accept? After hypocritical acceptance of the LORD JESUS, they will return to their sin, occupying a property they have not paid for and selling it at a very cheap (stolen) price. Selling what they have stolen from others. Even in times of Micah, they were described and even then they haunt the prophecies of Micah. So I will never fear them but only the LORD GOD - the LORD OF HOSTS who even surrounds me with His Great Love and Mercy. Actually in Jeremiah 15:20-21, I am the one surrounding them.

Micah 2:2-3 (Amplified Bible)

They covet fields and seize them, and houses and take them away; they oppress and crush a man and his house, a man and his inheritance.

Therefore thus says the Lord: Behold, against this family I am planning a disaster from which you cannot remove your necks, nor will you be able to walk erect; for it will be an evil time.
