North Cyprus Property | Psalm 37


That I am a Christian is something I have shared with you all many times. God is my rock, the Bible my guide. It is Sunday, the Christian day of worship so I am sharing this with you on the Christian day of rest.

Yesterday, in the afternoon (Saturday) a day when you do not expect the Bailiff to be working, yet another Writ was pinned on my front door. Number five (5). I was not out, no attempt was made to serve it in the customary manner. It must have been done very quietly because neither Agile nor I heard it happening. Am I getting tired? Yes. Am I getting totally worn out by this constant harassment? Yes.

Recently I shared my doubts that I was doing the right thing by campaigning as hard as I do for the rights of all property scam victims in north Cyprus. A fellow victim, a Russian lady advised me to open my Bible at any page, the answer would be there. I did just that at 5.03 am this morning. I am sharing what I saw with you all.

Could there be a clearer message?

Psalm 37

Of David.

1 Do not fret because of those who are evil

or be envious of those who do wrong;

2 for like the grass they will soon wither,

like green plants they will soon die away.


3 Trust in the Lord and do good;

dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

4 Take delight in the Lord,

and he will give you the desires of your heart.


5 Commit your way to the Lord;

trust in him and he will do this:

6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,

your vindication like the noonday sun.


7 Be still before the Lord

and wait patiently for him;

do not fret when people succeed in their ways,

when they carry out their wicked schemes.


8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;

do not fret—it leads only to evil.

9 For those who are evil will be destroyed,

but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.


10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more;

though you look for them, they will not be found.

11 But the meek will inherit the land

and enjoy peace and prosperity.


12 The wicked plot against the righteous

and gnash their teeth at them;

13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,

for he knows their day is coming.


14 The wicked draw the sword

and bend the bow

to bring down the poor and needy,

to slay those whose ways are upright.

15 But their swords will pierce their own hearts,

and their bows will be broken.


16 Better the little that the righteous have

than the wealth of many wicked;

17 for the power of the wicked will be broken,

but the Lord upholds the righteous.


18 The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care,

and their inheritance will endure forever.

19 In times of disaster they will not wither;

in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.


20 But the wicked will perish:

Though the Lord’s enemies are like the flowers of the field,

they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke.


21 The wicked borrow and do not repay,

but the righteous give generously;

22 those the Lord blesses will inherit the land,

but those he curses will be destroyed.


23 The Lord makes firm the steps

of the one who delights in him;

24 though he may stumble, he will not fall,

for the Lord upholds him with his hand.


25 I was young and now I am old,

yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken

or their children begging bread.

26 They are always generous and lend freely;

their children will be a blessing.[b]


27 Turn from evil and do good;

then you will dwell in the land forever.

28 For the Lord loves the just

and will not forsake his faithful ones.


Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed[c];

the offspring of the wicked will perish.

29 The righteous will inherit the land

and dwell in it forever.


30 The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom,

and their tongues speak what is just.

31 The law of their God is in their hearts;

their feet do not slip.


32 The wicked lie in wait for the righteous,

intent on putting them to death;

33 but the Lord will not leave them in the power of the wicked

or let them be condemned when brought to trial.


34 Hope in the Lord

and keep his way.

He will exalt you to inherit the land;

when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it.


35 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man

flourishing like a luxuriant native tree,

36 but he soon passed away and was no more;

though I looked for him, he could not be found.


37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright;

a future awaits those who seek peace.[d]

38 But all sinners will be destroyed;

there will be no future[e] for the wicked.


39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;

he is their stronghold in time of trouble.

40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;

he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,

because they take refuge in him.




I am in my 68th year. I have done nothing wrong. I bought a dream villa in north Cyprus. I was assured it was safe to do so. I followed the correct legal procedure. I am not alone, so many more people did the same. Someone else now lives in my villa. I have never been repaid a penny of the money I worked so hard for. Is this right? This is the 21st century, how can this be judged to be right?




The really sad thing is, I am only the first to find myself in this position in north Cyprus, if nothing is done to correct this, I will not be the last.
