The Bible has parallelism ... the natural world and the spiritual world. The spiritual world is always ahead of the natural world ... the spiritual world is never behind what the natural world is doing.
You will never have something manifest in the natural world and the spiritual world would say, "I didn't know that was going to happen." NO, it's the other way around ... the spirit world is always ahead of the natural world.
Romans 8:1 tells us that those who live after the dictates of the (Holy) Spirit ... not our own spirit ... won't be in condemnation. We don't want to be in condemnation ... we want to be just like Jesus.
We have to be listening to the Holy Spirit ... after the Spirit, not after our flesh. Our human spirit is more soul-conscious than Spirit-conscious. The Holy Spirit is interested in what we're doing in our spirit man.
Is our spirit man striving to be in control of us as a 3-part being? The Holy Spirit must have control over all three parts of us: spirit, soul, and body.
