395 The Main Goal of God’s Work of Conquest

Verse 1

You’ve all fallen under darkness,

and you have all been deeply harmed.

For you to know human nature,

live truth is what God’s work aims for.

If you can escape the darkness,

divorce yourself from things unclean,

if you can become holy,

you possess truth, that’s what this means.


Chorus

The main goal of conquering

is so humanity’s cleansed,

so man can possess the truth,

for too little they understand.

To do conquering work on these ones

is of the deepest significance.


Verse 2

It’s not that your nature is changed,

but that you can practice the truth.

You’re able to forsake the flesh.

This is what those who’ve been cleansed do.

Only those who have and live truth

can completely be gained by God.

Those who live out Peter’s image

are perfected, others conquered.


Chorus

The main goal of conquering

is so humanity’s cleansed,

so man can possess the truth,

for too little they understand.

To do conquering work on these ones

is of the deepest significance.


Verse 3

The work done to all the conquered

consists of issuing curses,

chastising and the show of wrath.

They get righteousness and curses.

To work on these people is to

reveal their corruption within,

so that they recognize it,

and so they are fully convinced.


Bridge

Once man becomes obedient,

then the conquering work will end.

Even if most don’t seek the truth,

the conquest work will have ended.


Chorus

The main goal of conquering

is so humanity’s cleansed,

so man can possess the truth,

for too little they understand.

To do conquering work on these ones

is of the deepest significance.
