July Mth, In the Old Maaonlc Temple, ear THERE WAS WAR IN HEAVEN Primeval Conflict Over Satanic Autocracy. ?y DR. JAMB? K. TALMAUK. Of th? Council of the Twelve. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint?. Salt Lake City. Utah. ? _ ??"6 THEBE WAi WAR IN HEAVEN: MICHAEL AND HIS AN GELS FOUGHT AOAINST THE DRAGON; AND THE DRAGON FOUOhT AND HIS ANOEL8. ASD PREVAILED NOT: NEITHER WAS THEIR PLACE FOUND ANY MORE IN HEAVEN." (Rev. 12:7; 8; read aleo th* next succeeding verse.) John the Revelator beheld In vision thl? ?oen? of primeval conflict between the host? of unembodied ?pirite. Plain ly this battle antedated the beginning of human history, for the dragon or Satan had not tb*n been expelled from heaven, and at the time of hla finit recorded activity among mortal? h? waa a fallen being. In this antemortai contea! the force? were unequally divided; Satan drew to hi? standard only a third of the spirit children of God (Rev. 12:4: Doc trine and Covenants 29-*?S-28 and 70:2S 27),-while the majority either fought with Michael or refrained from active opposition, and so accomplished the purpose of their "flrst estate." The atur?is who followed Satan "kept not their flrst estate" (Jude ?>. and so forfeited the glorious possibilities of an advanced or ?-?.?????1 estate" (Pearl of Great Price. Abraham 3:361. Th? victory was won by Michael and his angels; snd Satan, theretofore a "son of the morning." wa? ca?t out of heaven, yea "he waa? cast out Into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (Rev. 12:?.) About eight centuries prior to John's time, the principal fact? of these momentous occurrence? were revealed to Isaiah the prophet who lamented with Inspired pathos the fall of ao great a one aa Lucifer, and specifled ?elfish ambition a* the cause. Read laa. 14:12-15. The question at lasae in the war In heaven Is of flrst importance to human-kind. From the record of Isaiah we learn that Lucifer, then of exalted rank among th? spirits, sought to aggrandise himself without regard to the rights and agency of others. He ?spired to the unrighteous powers of absolute autocracy. The principle for which Michael, the archangel, contended, and which Luc ifer, son of the morning, sought to nullify, comprised the individual liberties, the free agency of tbe spirit hosts destined to be embodied In the flesh. The whole matter Is set forth In a revelation given to Moses and repeated through Joseph Smith, the first prophet of the present dispensa tion: "AND I, THE LORD GOD, SPAKE UNTO MOSES. SAYING: THAT SATAN, WHOM THOU HAST COM- ! MANDKD IN THE NAME OF MINK ONLY BEGOTTEN. IS THE 8AME WHICH WA8 FROM THE BEGIN NING. AND HE CAME BEFORE MB. SAYING-BEHOLD. HERE AM SEND ME I WILL ?? THY SON, AND I WILL REDEEM ALL MAN KIND, THAT ONE SOUL SHALL NOT BE LOST, AND 81TRELY I WILL DO IT; WHEREFORE GIVE ME THINE HONOR. BUT. BE HOLD. MY BELOVED SON, WHICH WAS MY BELOVED AND CHOSEN FROM THB BEGINNING. SAID UNTO ???FATHER. THY WILL BE DONE. AND THE GLORY BE THINE FOREVER. WHEREFORE, BECAUSE THAT SATAN RE BELLED AGAINST ME, AND SOUGHT TO DESTROY THE AGENCY OF MAN, WHICH I, THE LORD GOD. HAD GIVEN HIM. AND ALSO, THAT I SHOULD GIVE UNTO HIM MINIS OWN POWER: BY THE POWER OF MLS E ONLT 315GOTTEN, I CAUSED THAT HE SHOULD BE CAST DOWN; AND HE BECAME SATAN, YEA. EVEN THE DEVIL. THE FATHER OF ALL LIES. TO DECEIVE AND TO BLIND MEN. AND TO LEAD THEM CAPTIVE AT HIS WILL, EVEN .AS MANY AS WOULD NOT HEARKEN UNTO MY VOICE." (Pearl of Great Price. Moses 4:1-4.) ?, Thua It i? shown that before ?ia earth waa tenanted by man, Christ and Satan, together with the hoeta of the ?pint-offspring of Ood. existed as intelligent Individuala, with ability and power -ol cholee, and freedom to follow. the leader? whom they elected to obey. In that Innumerable concourir of spirit intelligences, the Father's plan, whereby His children would be advanced to their aecotvd estate, was submitted and doubtlea? discussed. Satana plan of compulsion, where by all would be forcibly guided through mortality, bereft of freedom to act and agency to chooee. so clt> cumicrlbed that forfeiture of salva tion would be impo??tble. and not one ?oui could be lost, waa rejected: and th? humble offer of Jeaua tha Firstborn?to live among men aa their Exemplar, observing th? sanctity of man'? agency while teaching men to use aright that divine heritage? waa accepted. Th? decision brought war, which reaulted In the vanqulah ment of Lucifer and hla angela, and they were caat out, deprived of tba boundless privileges incident to the mortal or second estate. Ever since the beginning: of hu men existence on earth, the deposed "son of the morning*' and hia fol lowers have been compassine; the captivity of souls. THE PLAN OF SALVATION IS THE GOSPEL OF LIBERTY. And now. in these the last days, immediately precedent to the return of Christ, who shall come to rule tn righteousness, on earth, the ?r? 1,-flend 1? making an other desperate effort to enthrall mankind under the autocracy of hell. The conflict under which the earth groan? ia a repetition of the pre-mundane war, whereby the free agency of man waa vindicated; and the eventual Issue of the current struggle is equally assured. Our own ?treat Nation haa enter ed the bloodv conflict in defense of the God-given rights of ?toan. It is no less due to their seaae of re ligious ?duty than to their oblics tions as citizen? of the Republic that members of tbe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Sainta in America have responded ao readi ly and effectively to the call for service in support of the Govern- : ment, which they verily- aftlnn has ! been established through direct in- ! splration from Heaven. It i? con trary to the revealed word of God that any man shall exercise ar bitrary dominion^ over his fellows.
