The means by which we can overcome the wicked one is that by which Christ overcame, — by the power of the Word. God does not control our minds without our consent; but if we desire to know and to do His will, His Promises are ours: for our Saviour says, “Sanctify them through Thy Truth (Verity) . . . Thy Word is Truth !” and “Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth (verity of My Word) shall make you free !” John 17:17 & John 8:32
Through faith in these Promises, every man may be delivered from the snares of error and the control of sin . . . !”
