"And the dragon out, that old serpent, calleci the Devil and Satan, which aeceiveth the whole world; was cast out into the earth l.iJ his angels were cast oui with him-- ' Rev 12,-- 7, 8, 9". Christ said, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.'" (Luke 10; 18.) Satan hated God and resolved to destroy man, God's crowning work of creation. He suc ceeded in causing the fall of Adam and Eve and all humanity inherited, the fall and the whole human race would have been destroyed forever if the mercy and love of God had" not prepared a salvation. PROPHECIES. . 703 years before the com iing of Christ (Isaiah 7:14 and 7 11, 1, 2, 3) prophesied that Christ would be born of a vir Joseph and the babe lying in a manger. And when they nad seen it, they made known abroad the saying, which was told them concerning this child- And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. And the shep- nertis returned glorifying and praising God, for all the things that they had heard and seen as it was told unto them." And this was the birth of the child Jesus. We celebrate the anniversary of his birth on wV ful ffrt,ii? December 25, and call it Christmas. We celebrate the CHRIST the SAVIOUR j Qf because Febr &0 in aue lime according 10 Washington was born on that the prophecies in the- city of day, and did more than any Bethlehem, Christ was born one else to give us Freedom of the virgin Mary.

"I have a few dollars saved up," says one, "and I am going to buy each of my little girls a doll, and each boy a train or a wagon, and Mary, what dress did Well, you say you wanted? you shall have it." And Mary said- - "John, dont forget the widow and her children next door, for they are very poor." And John said, "You attend to that, here is the money."

During the Civil War one day there came a lull in the battle and the Union band played Yankee WJflTESBURG, KENTUCKY EAGLE, and Southern band played, ''Dixie" And then somebody started a song like, "Home Sweet Home," and both sides, Yankees and Rebels joined in and all sang together. And now I hope that on this Christmas day that the armies will sing carols and they will have a truce in honor of the Christ. And may His spirit prevail and may we soon have a just and righteous "Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward Men-H- H. HARRIS. Doodle, " - Smoot Creek News THURSDAY, DEC 24, 1942 Nov. 4 : Henry H.
