"However, the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him; nor can he know them since they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians 2:14
God designed the world to be governed by natural rules and principles in the physical realm, as well as supernatural laws and principles in the spiritual realm. He then created man in His image as lord, king, and master, to have dominion and reign over everything He created, both physically and spiritually.
Adam and Eve sinned against God after Satan successfully persuaded Eve, and their sin drew God's wrath. Spiritual death, or the loss of supernatural life, was a major connotation of the judgment delivered against them. As a result, man's rule and authority were confined to the physical world, which was governed by natural laws and principles.
It's worth noting that these natural rules and principles apply to all human beings who meet the criteria. What goes up must naturally come down; whoever sows shall reap; if you give, you must receive; a diligent hand shall govern; what you see physically dictates what you can get; sickness necessitates medical care; death is terminal, and so on. Knowledge is power in the natural world, and no one can progress beyond his or her current level of knowledge and ability. The natural world runs on a logic-based system. Because they are acting at the natural level, many Christians today live in poverty, sickness, servitude, fear, debt, sadness, and failure.
Only those who have embraced Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and are spirit-filled can benefit from supernatural laws and principles. Such people must live holy lives and walk by faith rather than sight. These are those whose faith is based on God's strength rather than man's intellect.
The whole essence of Christianity is having the spiritual ability to live a successful life, to save souls, raise the dead, heal the sick, and deliver the oppressed. In Jesus' name, I pray that as you thirst and hunger for the supernatural life, the Lord himself would fulfill your hunger and forcefully anoint you for His ministry.
