This question(from another one like you and me who is ‘seeking, asking and knocking’ will cause us to think deeper)…listen to hear that ‘line upon line, precept upon precept’ with ‘here a little and there a little’ thrown in to season the truth of, from, to and through His, Yhwh’s, wisdom and mind… 1st the question: “ …isn’t or does this process address my property being returned to me?”
2nd the rephrasing: I would also ask the same thing and your question, DARYL, has brought up another couple questions concerning calling ‘land’ a (piece of) property? And , in light of the scripture which says, ‘the earth… (land/soil- Heb.- ʼerets, eh’-rets; from an unused root probably meaning to be firm; the earth (at large, or partitively a land) …is the Lords and the fullness thereof’ (Ps. 24:1) , does man truly own a so-called piece of property, the ‘land’? or, is he a caretaker for another’s land aka ‘property’, as in,
10 “He who is faithful in a very little thing is also faithful in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little thing is also dishonest in much.11 Therefore if you have not been faithful in the use of earthly wealth, who will entrust the true riches to you? 12 And if you have not been faithful in the use of that[earthly wealth] which belongs to another[whether God or man, and of which you are a trustee], who will give you that which is your own?” (Luke16: AMP)
also, look at where this next verse is positioned in the timing of its appearance:
v13: [ 13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand devotedly by the one and despise the other. You cannot serve bothGod and mammon [that is, your earthly possessions or anything else you trust in and rely on instead of God].” ] (quotes from https://www.biblegateway.com/p…e+16&version=AMP )
3rd, the answer: And, that last verse means, to me at least that, property, lands etc all ‘belong to’ Him THE Creator of it, ‘the earth and the fullness thereof’ and we even have, in law, something which says that, ‘he who creates a thing is the owner’? Or something to that effect?
I would most eagerly ask this group of true Bereans and seekers of The Truth to examine that terminology of words in light of the scriptures of truth and help me out with my understanding of the Word? Thank you and I appreciate the helpful discussion and insights presented in here. 🙏
4th, the reality of it:
Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
3 As the heavens for height and the earth for depth,
So the hearts and minds of kings are unsearchable. (AMP).
…and, I ask to the remnant, to you who are the called, chosen and faithful, are you a ‘king’ of THE KING?

Very well put, but a little too personal (you named names)
But I was not the first to name names
