To bring forth the One New Man, practically, is the battle of the ages. We have the opportunity to be the warrior bride to bring in the Kingdom. Lord, strengthen us with power and train us to fight the battle in the Body to bring the Kingdom to earth.

Oh, Lord Jesus. We are numbered in your army for the spiritual war! Lord, we know that right now Your will cannot accomplish on the earth freely because You have so many hindrance. Praise the Lord, You have Your army on the earth who will fight for Your interest and bring your kingdom down! Praise the Lord, let us be strong in spirit and have a heart that desperate to be mature every day! Jesus my Lord!
Today we are in the warfare. To fight in this battle, we need not to advance but to withdraw in our mingled spirit. It is only in our mingled spirit that we can maintain the victory that Christ gained on the cross.
Praise the Lord !!!!!!!!

I like this song because... it's challenging, but provides the motivation to meet it. It sets us ablaze, strengthens the inner man. It's a reminder not only to inoculate against laziness, but to anchor our sight on the prize. Praise the Lord for the message in this hymn. The tune is very suiting too, btw.

This hymn by Brother Watchman Nee, does not only give us the sense of urgency in spiritual warfare in the Body in the full expectation of the Lord's coming, but also how immediate, real and "onerous" this spiritual conflict is today. It is the Lord's coming in this hymn at the end of each verse, that lights a beacon of hope, that the end of all spiritual warfare in the Body is to bring in His coming, and is done in anticipation of His blessed return. Hence we have "the endurance of hope" not only that we would prevail in such warfare in the Lord, but also we fight unto that perfect light of day when the Lord returns, when so happy we will see Him as His Bride (which we are being prepared as in the midst of the fighting), when all our trials and sorrows in the present life, wrought by the devil, is done, to thus enter into His joy forevermore. Hence the message of this hymn is - "Overcome"!
