Did Spurgeon suggest that experience comes before knowledge after all?

Adrian WarnockAdrian Warnock, a Reformed Charismatic from England whom I greatly admire, makes the assertion in a blog post that Spurgeon “seems to suggest that experience may well need to come first before faith.” I am myself a Reformed Charismatic that also holds to New Covenant Theology, yet, I do not see how Adrian gets to this point.

He quotes several paragraphs from Spurgeon to make his point, however, I just do not get it! From the paragraphs quoted there, I do not see that Spurgeon says that experience comes before knowledge at all! What I do see is that Spurgeon said that both are necessary: knowledge and experience.

What do you think?
