Jeez, you might have a waiver defense if you can prove that the landlord continuously accepted late rent. However, you are two months behind and have racked up significant late fees. I wouldn't want to renew my lease with you if I were in his shoes. He's probably sick of the late rent and might even have another tenant who he wants to replace you with.
You do not want an eviction on your record. It will likely prevent you from being able to rent another apartment from most reputable landlords and nearly all major landlords check your rental record. You might consider offering to make payments to him AND move out willingly on the 23rd in exchange for him dismissing his action against you.
