A Dream at Christmas with a message for this Passover Season. We are crossing over into our Promised Land- All things restored! We hold the Key! – A Word by Christianna Schreifels
Email: [email protected]
I was prompted by the Holy Spirit to share a dream I had on Christmas day 2019. On the eve of New Year’s 2019 and 2020,I was given the completion of the following message for the body of Christ. Over the past few weeks, I was vividly remembering my dream and knew the Lord was bringing this prophetic message to my memory. I kept interceding and asked the Lord to show me when this word was to be released. The Lord said, today. Here it is. Be encouraged! Praise be to God for His perfect timing.
My dream on 12/25/2019
“Merry Christmas Child!”
On Christmas day of 2019, I woke up audibly hearing these words from the Lord. In fact, hearing these words was the reason I was awakened from a dream I had. At 8:38 a.m. I woke up with incredible joy- It felt like the wonder & excitement I had felt like a child waking up on Christmas mornings passed.
This dream was somewhat like a motion picture played on an HDTV screen so it was easy for me to remember the details. I was so excited that I ran downstairs to share it with my husband and my Mom, she was visiting for Christmas.
The Lord said this message was for ALL HIS CHILDREN. So I began to write it out that morning. I remember that this message was to be given at another time in the future so I wrote it out and saved it.
In my dream, I was living in a place with other believers. We had been given an assignment of service somewhere to rebuild a city.
We were not allowed to live at will or given many freedoms.
The spiritual atmosphere was heavy and a lot of hope seemed to have been lost but the joy of the Lord in the people of God was great. It was greater than the circumstances and our surroundings. It was like the joy I felt hearing the Lord say to me, “Merry Christmas, Child!:
In this dream, we were there to do very specific tasks. Upon our arrival, we were given our living quarters and our specific duties.
We were there to rebuild a desolate, hopeless, city. The buildings were badly damaged and the people there did not know the hope or love of Christ. We lived in what seemed like a walled city for protection. There were high walls surrounding us and two Angels stationed at the entrance gate with swords at their sides. The spiritual realm and the physical realm met in this place. What I mean by that is we could see both the angelic and the demonic at the same time.
The demonic were nuisances and no match for our decrees of scripture and for God’s host of Angels protecting us.
This awesome place was bustling with progress. We were following God’s blueprints for the city that we were building given to us by the Lord himself.
I even remember them being handed to us (myself and the group of Saints that were there); by His mighty hand- straight from heaven. It was so huge and yet so comforting to know He trusted us to do and handle the business of heaven here on Earth for Him. How loving, how awesome He is to us Saints.
Even writing about it now as I experienced it in my dream, brings tears to my eyes and the fear of God to my soul. I can only say- ‘Oh how He loves you and me that He would include us in His plans to love His creation back to Him. It was like Isaiah 61 in real-time.
Back to my dream
The work we were doing there was simple and specific to each person’spurpose there. Some were building buildings, some were paving walkways and roads that were inside this walled city. Some were teaching the children how to read in a make-shift school setting, some of us were cooking for the whole city and some of us were interceding in prayer and decreeing the Word over the land and the people. There were so many doing other things. It seemed mostof the children were orphans. It was apparent to us there we were now their primary care-givers. We also knew the parents of these children were gone due to the catastrophes of war and sickness.
There was also a medical team, tending to the sick and giving medical treatments. I also remember seeing artists painting murals to make the broken building walls beautiful to look at again once they were repaired. There were landscapers- planting trees and putting in flower beds for aesthetics. Sod was being laid down because it was all just dirt. There was a playground too. It was not fancy but still so nice and functional for the kids there. The Lord’s instructions for this city were filled with so much thought and attention to detail it was definitely a display of His love for the people and children that had experienced so much loss.
There was so much work to be done and it was being done with sheer joy. I remember the joy.
I knew we weren’t there permanently but we were going to be there for a while. Some of the people helping had chosen to go without their families to serve the Lord but would return when their assignment was completed. I was one of those. It felt like a long-term missionary trip.
There was tremendous joy among the workers even though the work was tedious and conditions were harsh. The workers were looking around- we seemed to need a few more people.
I remember distinctly that the workers, me included, were safe within the walls of this city. I also saw the Angels worked among us and we saw them as clearly as we saw each other. They spoke with us just like our human colleagues did but not often. These Angels helped us when our human strength and the tools we had limited us from accomplishing tasks we couldn’t, mainly, they protected us.
I remember there was no sorrow, no worry at all. Also amongst us, were the former enemies of the people we were ministering to. They had become our brother and sister- they chose to work alongside us and become our friends because they had learned of the love of God.
It was so clear that we were living out this scripture-
“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. 17. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it[b] to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20. On the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”
One day, I was asked to go and get supplies. We required food and the gardens that were being planted needed a season to pass to harvest them.
We didn’t have a constant supply of food yet. It was apparent that some of us had to be on a rotating schedule to pick up food from a different place outside of our walled city. The few people that chose to live outside the walls of the city refused any help we offered and were considered hostile to us.
The danger was constantly present. I remember getting ready to leave. It was around mid-day. My shoes were military boots and I was dressed in a type of canvas-like pants. I had a small backpack that draped across my chest from my right shoulder. I believe that what I was wearing was symbolic of being in an army. We were dressed differently but in similar types of clothes. We were in God’s army because the clothes were like military clothes but were all of brighter colors than the traditional army green used in the army.
The Angel on the right side of the gates opened the gate for me. I left the safety of our walled city. I remember that my pace of walking became quick. I didn’t look back. I did not have one ounce of fear or trepidation. I walked about 200 feet down the street to the right before I turned right again. It seemed I was walking southwest in a direction. As soon as I turned right at the corner two dark figures noticed me and began to chase after me. The Holy Spirit made me aware of their presence so I was ready to run to where I was being directed. They were hiding across the street amongst a heavily wooded area. These were not human figures, these were large dark beasts that were demonic in nature. I heard the Lord say, “Run now!” So I did. The Lord’s voice was calm and strong. The Lord told me where to run. I ran the whole way. He directed me where to hide when I needed to.
It seemed like I had run for a very long while.
The 2 beasts were on my heels yet they couldn’t catch me. I grew winded a few times and the Lord would refresh me to keep going.
I remember distinctly, never feeling fear. The peace and determination to get to where I was going were all that mattered. Nothing could deter me unless the Lord himself told me to stop. I could feel my flesh wanting to become afraid but I was comforted and encouraged during the ordeal. All I knew is that the Lord was with me and He protected me.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
There came a point when the beasts had almost captured me and I cried out loud to the Lord for help. Immediately an Angel appeared to my right. He was next to a building that was light peach in color and had not been damaged during the war like most of the buildings had in the region our city was located in.
I heard the angel say,” Hurry, come here!”
He waved me towards a wall and a door appeared and opened for me. I went through.
It was as if the door was there all along but it wasn’t, it simply appeared. I ran into the door and the angel covered the doorway behind me and the beasts were no longer able to find me. While I was inside the building I could hear them outside looking for me. Their voices were terrible and terrifying and I was still unafraid.
The angel had directed me to run down the stairs, it was just a few steps down from where I started at the street level, I believe it was 5 steps down and right in front of me, there was another doorway that was closed. It had bold, dark purple, almost black numbers right above it- 646 were the numbers. The door flew open as I approached the door. I was so tired that my throat hurt from the dryness that occurs from running a long distance.
When I opened the door that had 646 written over it, there was another angel inside. He said, “You made it Christianna!” I instinctively shut the door behind me.
Right behind him was an arch-shaped window maybe 2 feet by 3 feet in size and a glorious light was shining through the window on him. I remember drinking water and being refreshed quickly.
The Angel in room 646- handed me a beautiful box. It was covered in a white and cream-colored fabric with tiny gold trim- not ornate but still very elegant and beautiful. It wasn’t very big, maybe 8 inches deep, by 10 inches wide and 5 inches tall.
I asked, “What’s this?” As I opened the box it was as if it had many dimensions to it because what was inside could not be actually contained inside that box by any means. Upon opening this treasure box- everything became three-dimensional. It was as if my life’s story was placed inside this box and I saw everything since I was a very small infant to the present I am living in.
I saw many of my own treasured papers, photos, and real-time memories of key times in my life where I experienced the Lord redeem my times where the enemy may have won but the Lord turned it all for my good. I heard the Lord’s voice say in the room- “I’m restoring to you what you lost.” I immediately remembered that this scripture was given to me prophetically in 1992, 1996, 2001, 2007, and now in this dream. Five times over a period of many years. GRACE!
This is the scripture
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust My great army which I sent among you. 26. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame. 27, Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the Lord your God. And there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame.”
What I saw was actually all the experiences in my life that the enemy meant for evil, disappeard- All the tears, pain & loss I experienced, were in this gift box were suddenly gone. Immediately, I saw in that treasure box, my life fully restored. The Holy Spirit impressed upon me that the Lod imparted to me a glimpse of “His Kingdom come here on Earth as it is written in Heaven.” ( Matthew 6:10) Beloved, He is restoring what He promised and it is literal Saint, be encouraged!
It occurs every day in our life as we obey Him and follow His Lead.
One thing that I am being prompted to remember is this- the Lord is restoring impossible marriages.
I saw my marriage of days gone by; the not good years and then I saw them disappear as they did in real-time because my marriage is a miracle.
Then I heard the Lord say, ” I am restoring marriages- impossible ones- tell my people what I am doing. ”
Beloved- ALL that was intended for evil is NOW being TURNED for our GOOD!
“19. But Joseph replied, “Do not be afraid. Am I in the place of God? 20. As for you, what you intended against me for evil, God intended for good, in order to accomplish a day like this- to preserve the lives of many people.”
In this dream, the Lord was revealing a mystery of heaven to us.
Read Psalm 56: 8-9
” 8. You have taken account of my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle-are they not in Your book? 9. Then my enemies will retreat on the day I cry for help. By this, I will know that God is on my side.…”
Whoa! – did you catch that? That’s exactly what happened in my dream. My wanderings, all the things that brought me sorrow- my sin and the sins of others, God took that all out of that precious box in a second and while I was being chased my enemies retreated when I cried for help.
Remember, the treasure box contained my sorrows and then they disappeared and right before my eyes, restoration occurred in all places in my life. We are assured that our tears are in the Lord’s bottle in heaven where He stores them for His purpose.
At the very end of my dream- I had found a key in the treasure box, I took hold of it and started jumping up and down and rejoicing in the Lord in that room while the Lord’s Angel laughed and rejoiced with me. WOW!
Yes, Lord, you are doing great things amongst your people and You are bringing restoration of our years lost and there will never be shame on us again,
Then I woke up to hear the Lord say, “Merry Christmas Child!”
Know, Saint- that the Lord is fulfilling all the promises He has given you.
Let’s remember Beloved, it’s up to us to cooperate and obey the Lord in what His scripture says and what His Holy Spirit instructs us to do.
Each prophetic word we are given implies that we share a personal responsibility, to do our part- which is obedience to Him- He will always show us how and when we listen to the Lord, we will not miss anything He is directing us to do.
As I recall my dream- I want to point out to you for you-
As hard as I was running, I felt the Holy Spirit point out to me the fact that I wasn’t tired. It was amazing. I also was so filled with such a depth of peace because I was being protected well by the Lord in my plight from death & destruction. The beasts were out to kill me and because of the Lord, I lived. I believe many reading this have known this truth in your life and are experiencing restoration this season. We are strategically being positioned in this pivotal time to receive restoration & the promises so that we will advance the Kingdom of God. Our discernment has been honed keenly in this past year (from 2019 to now) compared to most.
It has become easier to forsake the things of the soulish realm when presented with the choice, the Lord’s way or our flesh’s. We are being healed at an accelerated rate compared to previous time periods too. I looked up the number 646 in the Strongs concordance and it means the Ephod which is the priestly garment found in many passages of the Bible. It was worn by the Lord’s appointed leaders to speak for the people of God and to the people of God like Aaron (in Leviticus 8), King David (1 Chronicles 15), and the prophet Samuel ( 1 Samuel 2) to name a few times where the ephod is mentioned. In Exodus 28 the Lord gives instructions for how it was to be made.
3. “You shall speak to all the skillful, whom I have filled with a spirit of skill, that they make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him for my priesthood. 4. These are the garments that they shall make: a breastpiece, an ephod, a robe, a coat of checker work, a turban, and a sash. They shall make holy garments for Aaron, your brother, and his sons to serve me as priests. 5 They shall receive gold, blue, and purple and scarlet yarns, and fine twined linen. 6 “And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue and purple and scarlet yarns, and of fine twined linen, skillfully worked.”
It is a garment that the breastplate is attached to.
The walled city and the harsh conditions I was living in to rebuild the city alongside God’s people are significant.
The Lord has caused us to flourish in the place of what the world would call-hardship. Yet to us, the people of the Most High God, Yeshua, we thrive and become strengthened during these times.
We are the repairers of the breach. We are the Lord’s bondservants and many are being saved from death and destruction (the 2 dark beasts) that have been chasing us this past year. I believe the death and destruction are telling of what was coming in the way of the pandemic and that we have lived through. The Body of Christ has risen up and is rising up to be the ones rebuilding and providing for those who have lost their way because of the loss they have experienced.
When I ran into the doorway that flew open marked 646- the Lord was showing me that we have entered into our identity as His royal priesthood.
1 Peter 2:9 – “But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:”
Prior to this season, many saints had been wondering, waiting, and asking what is my calling? When will God use me? What am I to do Lord? etc.
The Lord has defined that for many in this season and God’s kingdom is advancing mightily in the Earth.
We are rejecting all that is ‘lukewarm’ in us as the Holy Spirit is stoking the fire in our hearts. It is my prayer that you, beloved bondservant, are encouraged with what I shared today. That this is a confirmation of what you are bearing witness to in your life right now. I also felt that those experiencing uncertainty in regards to your identity in Christ has since been diminishing. There is a clarity in your identity and direction for your life that was not as clear as it is now. Lay aside all that encumbers you in Jesus’ Name. Run your race to the fullest.
An open vision of Crossing the Red Sea
Seven days later, on January 1, 2020 -the Lord’s people began the journey crossing the Red Sea.
We are crossing over into the Promised Land in 2021
This open vision I had just a few minutes into the new year 2020 is significant and I believe that the dream I had on Christmas day, just a few days before- was a confirmation that we are seeing restored to us what was lost in the former years because we were crossing from the sandy bottom of the Red Sea onto the Promised Land.
My open vision
My children and my husband had just welcomed the New Year 2020. My kids were outside playing in the snow out in the backyard. I wa watching from my kitchen window as I was doing the dishes. It was 12:01 and my soul became quiet as my spirit quickened to the Lord. I felt a definitive shift in the atmosphere on the Earth and in time. It was both gentle and fierce. I heard the Lord say, “Crossed over!” I saw multitudes of people crossing over a demarcated line. Then I felt the dry sand beneath my feet and a huge, powerful wind come through what seemed to be a corridor. I felt the sting of sand particles hit my face and I could taste the saltiness of the air. It was as if I had been taken to another place and time.
I looked up because I could feel the wind was damp. In the corner of my mind’s eye, I could see huge walls of the sea on either side of where we were walking through. As I took notice of the walls of the water on either side and I felt an incredible terror. We were somewhere in the middle of a body of water. I could hear a throng of people behind me. We, my husband, my family, and I were near the front. The scene was overwhelming.
I could see the dry land in front of us but it was still a ways away and all I could do was keep walking forward to get to the other side. The people crossing with us in this place were all dressed as we dress today. It wasn’t the Israelites it was us, the Body of Christ. I saw friends and family and many familiar faces. We all were in awe and it seemed we were awestruck with where we were but we all had that peace that surpassed our understanding because we were experiencing our crossing the Red Sea into our Promised Land. Little did we know that we would face the giants in the land of promise similar to our forefathers of Israel. As soon as this open vision ended. I wrote what I saw down. The Lord told me to remember that the Egyptians came after the people of God on their chariots and the Lord let the sea swallow them up and they were no more. We were actually on the other side looking back at the destruction of the Egyptians- those that intended to see us destroyed in their land but the Lord helped us to arrive in our promised land instead.
“15. Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16. redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
9 “By faith, the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.”
Hang tight precious child of God! Stand your ground in your promised land. All you have lost is being restored. We are flourishing. Go now and slay the giants in the land.
Remember the story of the Israelites. Despite the odds, there were only 2 (Joshua & Caleb in Numbers 13) coming back to give a good report and realize that the giants would be defeated in the land because God would help them. We are the giant slayers, Saints. We are crossing over and taking the land!
