The Bible has parallelisms ... the natural and the spiritual worlds. 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 manifested in the natural world and hear the spiritual world say: "I didn't know that this was going to happen." NO, it's the other way around ... the spirit world is always ahead of the natural world.
When something happens in the natural, we know that something previous, ahead of that, has happened in the spirit world making this come about. We may be the instigator in the natural of this happenng or perhaps the prayers of someone else instigated it on our behalf.
Romans 8:1 tells us that those who live after the dictates of the (Holy) Spirit ... not our own spirit ... will not 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 the 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 three-part being? The Holy Spirit has to have control over all three parts of us.
