In nature, the fall comes before the winter. It is the time when the leaves turn their color, and the nights grow cooler, all heralding the oncoming winter season. But Spiritually, the Winter comes first. WE WERE DEAD IN TRESPASSES AND SINS UNTIL The Holy Spirit awoke us. Then He Regenerated us, giving us a new life. This is comparable to Spring. Then we entered the Summer time of growth. This is followed by the fall, when we are getting ready to go to our Heavenly Home. So as we consider The Fall, let's look forward to our Lord's soon Return.
