Jennifer Eivaz has personally experienced the presence of angels. And other believers can do the same, she says, through the spiritual gift of discerning of spirits. "You're either going to see them, you will feel them or you will hear them when the Holy Spirit awakens your sense to discern their presence," she says.
Trinity Broadcasting Network's Brenda Crouch, wife of Paul Crouch Jr., is one of those who has clearly discerned an angel's presence, Eivaz says on the Take 10 With Jenn podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. "She grew up in Turlock [California], and she shared a story with me about how an angel protected her. She actually saw that angel, and she was a teenager," Eivaz explains.
"Brenda made the cheerleading team, and she was invited to one of those cool parties; at least, she thought it was going to be a cool party. She thought it was a supervised party, and she went to the party, and it was neither of those," Eivaz says. "It turned out the girl who was on the cheerleading team who invited everybody to the party ... her mother was a practicing occultist. ... And so her mother had taught the daughter how to do various incantations and seances and different things. And so this daughter, who was also on the cheerleading team, wanted everybody at the party to do these seances. ...
"Brenda refused to participate. Brenda sat outside the circle that they had, and she began to pray quietly under her breath for God to shut this down and for God to protect her," Eivaz says. "Well, at the moment she prayed, she saw an angel. She saw an angel wrap its wings around her and protect her.
"And then the girl who was conducting the séance got very upset and angry. She said, 'Somebody is praying and stopping the spirits from speaking.' And so Brenda learned by seeing that God will protect His own. God will send an angel."
