Standing upon the LandSubmitted by jruss133 on Thu, 01/09/2014 - 13:04
For those that have never been able to possess a piece of land due to the restraints of the natural man’s commercial world order, and have been led thereby to believe that the Lord does not provide for His children at all times, we offer the following revelations to those children who are in the world but not of it, and therefore will not be seeking to make merchandise of our loving Father’s Creation and Providence.The alternative to purchasing a “title” or “deed” to land and paying a yearly rent to Caesar (taxes) because of the commercial status thereof, is to “stand upon the land.” The more specific phrase to use is “standing upon land that’s sitting in waste,” and your purpose is to be a caretaker of it and to cultivate it, as mandated in Holy Scripture. If you are moved by the Holy Spirit to proceed in this manner, it is extremely important that you make it clear to others that you are not standing upon the land to acquire title, deed, or ownership to it—for the land belongs to God, and He commanded that it not be sold forever:
Leviticus 25:23, “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.”Leviticus 25:34, “But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.”
Psalms 24:1, “The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”
1 Corinthians 10:26,28 “For the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.”
In order to find a piece of land upon which you can stand, the first step is to go to the County Tax Assessor’s Office or Recorder of Deeds, i.e., where land records are kept within each county (sometimes located at the courthouse). Therein, locate the alphabetical list of land owners. Do a search for “Unknown owner,” “Unclaimed land,” or other similar words. This will list pieces of land that have never been registered with the county, i.e., they have never entered commerce. Each piece of land will have a corresponding ten digit “Assessor’s ID Number.” Use this Assessor ID Number to get the section number of the Plat Map that this land is located on. The section number will look similar to the following— “POR. SEC.14 T.4.N. R.17W.” Once you look at this Plat Map (also called a “Licensed Surveyor’s Map,” or a “Parcel Map”), then you will know the location of this land within the county. There will be names of roads and possibly an address, etc.
Once you find the location of the parcels of unclaimed land, the next step is to physically go to each location and see if it is being used. If there are any signs of it being currently possessed (enclosures, structures, or cultivation), you cannot stand on that land. If, however, this land appears to have never been used, or it appears that it was once used (by having old enclosures and structures on it) but is now abandoned, you may proceed to Stand upon the Land.
