How Supernatural Experiences Can Help You Bring Unbelievers to Christ

by | Dec 12, 2019 | Woman

Experiencing the supernatural should be a normal part of the Christian life. But did you know when combined with the gift of discerning of spirits, these experiences can also be used as a tool to share the gospel?

“It’s normal to have supernatural encounters,” says prophetic minister Jennifer Eivaz on the Take 10 With Jenn podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, pointing out that the Bible reveals this truth. “I had experienced the supernatural my entire life. My experiences changed in scope [from] before I was a Christian versus after I was a Christian, but I always had them.”

Scripture also “shows us … what supernatural encounters to accept and what to reject and why,” Eivaz says. “And so it’s normal to see and experience angels and demons. It’s normal to have visions and dreams from God. It’s normal to encounter a wide variety of miracles.

“The supernatural is not limited to a one-time experience for us as Christians because our God’s supernatural; He doesn’t have any limits,” Eivaz adds. “And at the same time, a lot of unbelievers are experiencing the supernatural, but in a much different context. They experience the supernatural, and it creates this hunger in them to want more, but they don’t know how to discern it. They don’t know how to sort through it.”

This experience of the supernatural, Eivaz says, carries confusion for nonbelievers. “If their home becomes haunted, they don’t know they should cast the demon out. If they start to experience psychic or telepathic abilities, they don’t know how to classify that, and they reach out to the occult, they reach out to New Age sources for answers. People who need healing or deliverance, they go to … shamans and exorcism to try and get relief instead of going to Jesus and to His church.”

And Eivaz adds a critical point. “As Christians, we need to embrace the supernatural, but we need to do so with the gift of discerning of spirits in operation, and we need to do so intelligently and effectively, because we can reach people like this for Jesus Christ.”

To learn more about the gift of discerning of spirits and how God can use an interest in the supernatural to draw people to Himself, listen to this podcast.
