“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:12-13)

“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called ‘The Word of God’” (Revelation 19:11-13)

          “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord,

          He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;

          He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword – –

          HIS TRUTH is marching on.

          I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps,

          They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;

          I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps – –

          HIS DAY is marching on.

          He has sounded for the trumpet that shall never sound retreat,

          He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat;

          O be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet!

          OUR GOD is marching on.

          In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,

          With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me;

          As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free,

          While God is marching on.
