I received the following revelation during a prayer meeting where a group of people were powerfully praying in tongues against the demonic in our area, backing one who was taking authority in English.


HEARD:  Jabez.


PIX:  I saw a rubberband.


IMPRESSION:  I had the impression of a rubber band being stretched out, then when let go, it bounces right back into place.


QUICKENED MEMORY:  The Lord brought back the memory of the scripture:


Isa 54:2-3 NKJV

"Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.  For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited.


I realized that stretching has a tension and a pressure added, and it can reach out, and then come back in.  It is just like the skirts of a tent.  The tent has a certain boundary, which has a limit to which it can stretch its skirts.


HEARD:  Maintain what you have obtained.


MEMORY:  When you go on a fast, you put all of your resources and time towards that goal, but you can’t keep it up.  Same with stretching to go on a diet, if you return to your old ways, it all bounces back.  Same with striving for straight A’s on a report card.  If it is not a part of your natural abilities, as soon as you let up a tad, your grades fall back to your natural abilities.


It was quickened to me to look up the Jabez scripture:


1 Chron 4:10 KJV

And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.


1 Chron 4:10 AMP

Jabez cried to the God of Israel, saying, Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and You would keep me from evil so it might not hurt me! And God granted his request.



OT:7337 rachab (raw-khab'); a primitive root; to broaden (intransitive or transitive, literal or figurative):

KJV - be an en- make) large (-ing), make room, make (open) wide.



OT:1366 gebuwl (gheb-ool'); or (shortened) gebul (gheb-ool'); from OT:1379; properly, a cord (as twisted), i.e. (by implication) a boundary; by extens. the territory inclosed:

KJV - border, bound, coast, great, landmark, limit, quarter, space.


THE MOMENT OF REVELATION:  When I read the words, “enlarge my coast” I suddenly realized that the coast lines are pre-determined boundaries and that when the boundaries are enlarged, they actually move and change instead of just stretch. 




Deut 32:8 NLT

When the Most High assigned lands to the nations, when he divided up the human race, he established the boundaries of the peoples according to the number of **angelic beings.  

**1121 !Be ben {bane}

Meaning:  1) son, grandson, child, member of a group 1a) son, male child 1b)  grandson 1c) children (pl. - male and female) 1d) youth, young men (pl.) 1e) young  (of animals) 1f) sons (as characterisation, ie sons of injustice [for un- righteous  men] or sons of God [for angels] 1g) people (of a nation) (pl.) 1h) of lifeless things,  ie sparks, stars, arrows (fig.) 1i) a member of a guild, order, class

Origin:  from 01129; TWOT - 254; n m

Usage:  AV - son 2978, children 1568, old 135, first 51, man 20, young 18, young  + 01241 17, child 10, stranger 10, people 5, misc 92; 4906

EXPERIENCE;  As warriors we were all strongly praying in tongues and also taking authority against specific demonic spirits in our area.  I felt a powerful sweeping motion against these spirits as they left. 


MEMORY:  Immediately I realized that just like driving demons out of a person, you must fill the hole, otherwise 7 more come back.  I also had the impression that when we rise up in such powerful tongues in unity against these things, that it is also like stretching, that as soon as we let up, it leaves room for a dark oppression to return even worse than before.  I suddenly understood that we must “occupy and grow into” the territory and maintain it, not just reach out and stretch into it.   


[I remember Bob Jones saying that he no longer prays for revival, because once it dies out, the darkness that comes back to fill the void is much worse than before.  So he prays for habitation instead.]


Matt 12:43-45 NLT

"When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none.  Then it says, 'I will return to the person I came from.' So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and clean.  Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before. That will be the experience of this evil generation."


[Lord how do we occupy this and how do we maintain this to keep this from happening?] 


QUICKENED PRAYER:  The Lord reminded me that in order to occupy we are working in synergy with the angels.  So I prayed that the Lord would send an angel to mark out a new boundary line to hold back the demonic.  This would keep them from sweeping back in once we let the pressure off from our unified tongues and warfare. 


QUICKENED MEMORY:  FILL THE GAP WITH THE RIGHTEOUS COUNTERPART:  He then brought back the memory of what He told Rick Joyner, that whenever we chop down a tree, we must plant a righteous tree in its place, otherwise the old demonic one will grow back even stronger, as though merely pruned. 


PRAY IN THE OPPOSITE SPIRIT:  As I was asking the Lord how do we plant a righteous tree/ spirit to replace what we drive out of our area?  And He reminded me of the principal of praying in the opposite spirit.  If we are driving out unbelief, we loose faith to replace it.  If we are driving out agitation and unrest, we pray for and loose peace to be planted in its stead. 


PIXI saw a stake in the ground, as though a claim for territory. 


I realized that having an angel posted at the boundary and planting a tree of the opposite of what we drove out, IS like claiming our territory, putting that stake in the ground.




Mark 9:25-26 NKJV

He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more !" 


PRAYER:  [Lord how to we occupy and maintain this new place?]  He brought into memory the following scriptures.




Deut 11:24 NKJV

Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours:


Josh 1:3-7  NKJV

Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.


Ex 23:29-33 NKJV

I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field become too numerous for you. Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land. And I will set your bounds from the Red Sea to the sea, Philistia, and from the desert to the River. For I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you."


Revelation:  I understood that the way we occupy this new territory that is swept away from the demonic is literally to walk into it.  The authority to MAINTAIN what we have OBTAINED by faith, is to walk in that authority.  It is very simple.  If we do not walk in the opposite spirit of what we loosed, then we can not keep that ground. To the same level of integrity that we walk in our life, is the same level of integrity we maintain. 


John 5:14 NKJV

"See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you." 


Lev 26:23-24 NKJV

'And if by these things you are not reformed by Me, but walk contrary to Me,  then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins.


Matt 12:45 NKJV

Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation." 


CONFIRMATION:  One of our intercessors when praying over our local university, called forth the seeds of the many prayer walks given on the school grounds.  This was a good connection to the revelation of how to occupy. 


SUMMARY:  We want to expand our borders, not just stretch them.  We do this by:


  1. Warring and driving the demonic out.

  2. Posting angels to keep the ground.

  3. Praying in the opposite spirit by loosing the righteous counterpart to be planted in their stead.

  4. Commanding the demonic not return.

  5. Walking in the Spirit of what we have planted or loosed, fearing God lest we lose ground by our sin or even by allowing our walk to agree with what we drove out.


Lord thank You for this revelation, please train us in this so we can cooperate with You and Your heavenly hosts.  in Jesus Name.
