(Continued From Page 1) The message they claim they received from God was two-fold — that the second coming of Christ is near, and that they must remain in the house until He comes. "It is simply no longer their house," said Lee Cook, assistant state director of the FHA. "Since April 6 the house has been federal government property. They have no legal right to be in the house.'' Cook said Gene Nance obtained an FHA loan in 1974 to buy the house. ' "He (Nance) made payments just like clockwork until Oct. I," Cook said, "then he didn't see fit to make any more payments." Cook added that Nance had voluntarily signed the house back to the FHA earlier this year to meet "full satisfaction of the loan." If the vigil members don't leave by midnight tonight, Cook said, the matter will probably be turned over to U.S. Justice Department officials. "If there is any eviction order it will be issued by the Justice Department and enforced by U.S. marshals," Cook added. fiff
