It looks to me that the seller has not yet formally declared the contract forfeited. He can't do this to himself, under his breath. He has to communicate to you that the contract is forfeit, probably by giving you something in writing.
I don't know if, "in accordance with Mississippi Law", it is possible to pay the amount in default, and thus reinstate the contract so as to prevent him from declaring the contract forfeit. That is why you had better counsult a Mississippi attorney now
you do anything else (Do not send him a letter or talk to him before you see an attorney!).
Your argument that the contract doesn't mention eviction is not going to get you anywhere. If
the contract is forfeited, that leaves you in possession of the property as a tenant at will
. Exactly the same situation as you would be in had you been renting the property and failed to pay rent. He can evict you from his property because you would be simply a tenant who failed to pay rent.
