Lysanias, ly-sa'-ni-as (Gk.)--loosening of bonds; ending of sadness; driving away sorrow.
Meta. The ruling thought in that which Abilene signifies (see ABILENE), at the time of one's first, or intellectual (John the Baptist), understanding of the Christ Truth, when one seeks to cleanse one's thoughts and habits and to make oneself a fit conscious dwelling place for the Christ.
