HOLY TROUBLE
 

DANCE OF THE BRIDE

A TEN PART
DANCE OF MY BRIDE

COME AND SEE
WHAT IT WILL BE
FOR YOU SEE
MY BRIDE
SHE ADVANCES BEFORE THE FATHER
IS SHE READY?
OH, SHE DOES NOT THINK SHE IS!
SHE BEGS FOR MORE TIME
FOR THE LIGHT IS BRIGHT
THE THRONE ROOM A GLARE
AND YET, SHE IS NOW WORTHY
TO BE EMPOWERED
AND BRING FORTH
THE CHILDREN

PART I ~ LIGHT

NO, HER LIGHT IS NOT AS BRIGHT AS MINE
BUT ONE DAY IT WILL BE
SHE SOAKS IN THE LIGHT ~ IN MY PRESENCE
AS SHE WORSHIPS
AND THE TRUE AND LASTING DANCE
BEGINS . . .
~

PART II ~ NUMBERS

IT ALL BEGAN WITH NUMBERS
AND HOW THESE NUMBERS PLAY
INTO MY SOVEREIGN PLAN
OH, THERE HAVE BEEN MANY ~ ALL ENCRYPTED
FOR ONLY THOSE WHO HEAR MY VOICE
I SPEAK THE NUMBER
AND MY BRIDE KNOWS THE "CALL"
AND THE RESULT
~

PART III ~ THE CROSS

YES, SHE WENT TO THE CROSS
NOT WILLINGLY, FOR SHE DID NOT UNDERSTAND
WHY THOSE WHO PREACH MY GOSPEL
WERE THE ONES WHO HUNG HER
SHE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE THOSE WHO LOOK EVIL
AND DO EVIL DEEDS
BUT ALAS
IT WAS THOSE WITH A BIBLE IN THEIR HANDS
BUT SHE HUNG UNTIL SHE WAS FREE
OF THEIR ACCUSATIONS
AND NOW
THEY HANG FOR EVERY WORD
THEY THOUGHT AND SPOKE TOWARD MY BRIDE
JUSTICE REIGNS ~~~~
HAMAN HANGS
~

PART IV ~ PEACE

SHE WAS ACCUSED OF NOT HAVING "PEACE"
SURELY SHE DID NOT REPRESENT ME
BECAUSE SHE HAD NO PEACE
BUT, I TELL YOU THE TRUTH
THE PAIN SEVERED PEACE FROM HER BEING
UNTIL THE DEATH WAS FINAL
THE LOVE SHE THOUGHT WAS HERS
WAS PROVEN LOST
AND SHE WAITED IN MY ARMS FOR SALVATION
THEN THE PEACE CAME
BUT BY THEN
THE MASSES HAD LEFT TO SEEK
PEACE AND HAPPINESS IN A RELIGION
WITHOUT
A
CROSS
~

PART V ~ MONEY

WHAT DOES MY BRIDE
DO WITH THE MONEY I PROVIDE?
I TELL YOU THE TRUTH
EVERY PENNY SHE CARRIES AND OWNS IS MINE
THERE IS NO MISTAKE ABOUT THIS
BUT THE PEOPLE SAY SHE IS SPOILED
AND SHOULD GIVE THE MONEY TO THE POOR
THEY SAY SHE DOES NOT TRULY WORK
SO SHE SHOULD NOT BE PAID
THEY SAY THE MONEY IS NOT SPENT WELL
BUT PEOPLE
SHE IS MY BRIDE
AND EVERY PENNY GOES WHERE I DEEM IT TO GO
AND AS MY BRIDE HAS BEEN FAITHFUL
A NEW "CALLING"
A NEW "MESSAGE OF GREATNESS" COMES
WE'LL JUST CALL IT "MELCHIZEDEK"
AND IT WILL SURELY BE SUFFICIENT
TO RUN MY HOUSEHOLD
IN THESE LAST DAYS
~

PART VI ~ CHURCH

MY BRIDE IS ACCUSED OF FORSAKING FELLOWSHIP
OF NOT JOINING WITH OTHERS
TO WORSHIP ME
AND LEARN OF ME
BUT PEOPLE
I TELL YOU THE TRUTH
HER FELLOWSHIP IS WITH ME
AND WITH THOSE OF
THE RESURRECTION
MY TRUE PEOPLE WILL KNOW EACH OTHER
AND THEIR UNITY WILL BE IN ME
IT WON'T BE
FORCED OR PLANNED OR DRIVEN INTO THE PEOPLE
MY HOLY SPIRIT CREATES THE UNITY
AND WE ARE ALL ONE
MY BRIDE FELLOWSHIPS WITH THOSE
WHO HEAR MY VOICE AND OBEY
AND NONE OTHER
~

PART VII ~ HAPPINESS

THE WORLD SEEKS "HAPPINESS"
PEOPLE GO TO CHURCH TO HAVE "HAPPY, BLESSED" LIVES
BUT, MY FRIENDS
THE TRULY JOYFUL ONES ARE THOSE WHO LAY THEIR
PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS AT MY ALTAR
AND ASK FOR MY JOY TO BE FULL
BY THEIR SACRIFICE
"HAPPINESS" ~ PERHAPS
A GOAL FOR SOME
BUT
NEVER
FOR MY BRIDE
NEVER
~

PART VIII ~ ESCAPE

HOW CAN THIS BE HOLY TO RUN AWAY?
HOW CAN IT BE RIGHT TO AVOID PEOPLE?
READ PSALM 1 AND PSALM 101
MY PEOPLE
WHO ARE TRULY MINE
WILL NOT
FELLOWSHIP WITH THOSE
WHO LIE, CHEAT,
STEAL, BLASPHEME, DESTROY, SLANDER
THEY SIMPLY WON'T
~

PART IX ~ DANCE

WHAT IS THE DANCE OF THE RIGHTEOUS?
WHAT IS IT THAT MY BRIDE MUST DO TO
ULTIMATELY PLEASE ME
AND JOIN IN DANCE WITH ME?
WHAT LOVE MUST SHE HAVE FOR ME
THAT I WOULD JOIN WITH HER?
WHAT MAKES US ONE?
MY BRIDE WILL HAVE THE SAME LOVE FOR ME
AS I HAVE FOR HER
IT IS SIMPLE
IT IS PURE
IT IS
CONSUMING AND FREEING
~

PART X ~ FREEDOM

MY BRIDE WILL BE FULLY FREE
FROM THOSE WHO ACCUSE HER
TRY TO CONTROL HER
OR SEEK TO NEUTRALIZE HER WORK
THIS FREEDOM COMES THROUGH THE CROSS
THIS FREEDOM WAS BOUGHT BY MY LIFE LAID DOWN
THIS FREEDOM IS BLOOD-BOUGHT
BY MY BLOOD AND HERS

AND SO YOU SEE
"THE DANCE OF THE BRIDE"
"THE DANCE OF FREEDOM"

IS IT WORTH IT
TO SERVE ME AND LOVE ME?
ARE THERE REWARDS WORTHY OF THIS QUEST?
I AM
THE REWARD
AND THAT IS
ALL
MY BRIDE TRULY DESIRES
ALL

SO, SHAKE YOUR HEADS, ACCUSERS
LINE UP WITH YOUR SLANDER
AND EVEN SHOW PROOF
BUT I TELL YOU THE TRUTH
NO ONE WILL WIN IN THIS WAR
FOUGHT IN LOVE
BY MY BRIDE AND I
YOU WILL FIGHT, RELIGIOUS PEOPLE
BUT YOU WILL ALL DIE IN YOUR SIN AND REBELLION


YOU COULD HAVE BEEN LOVED
YOU COULD HAVE LOVED
BUT YOU FOLLOW RULES
AND SEEK TO TAKE ALL THE LIFE
FROM THOSE WHO WANT TO TRULY KNOW ME

NO MORE!
THIS DAY, I SPEAK A WORD OF REBELLION
WHICH I HAVE AGAINST YOUR WAYS
AND YOUR CODE OF ETHICS
THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE LOVE

YOU WILL NOW FULLY BEAR
ALL YOUR OWN SINS
IN YOUR MORTAL
BODIES AND SOULS AND HEARTS AND MINDS
AND SPIRITS
I WILL FULLY REMOVE
THE PROPHET
THE ONE WHO CARRIED YOUR SINS
AND PRAYED FOR YOU TO FIND ME
YOU KNOW THE WAY
FIND ME
BUT KNOW THIS
I WILL RUN FROM YOU AS YOU COME CLOSE
FOR YOUR HEARTS ARE SO FILTHY
I WILL RUN
AND I WILL PUT OBSTACLES IN THE WAY
AS YOU DO
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO KNOW ME
BUT I CHALLENGE YOU TO STILL TRY
SOME WILL ACTUALLY MAKE IT THROUGH
BUT YOU WILL NO LONGER
HAVE A FREE RIDE
ALL YOUR FREEDOM IS REMOVED FROM YOU
AS MY BRIDE IS GRANTED FREEDOM
FROM YOU
THE TABLES TURN
THE EVIL ONES WILL NOW PAY
FOR THEIR OWN CRIMES
AND THE RIGHTEOUS WILL BE
FREE
TO JOIN ME IN THIS FINAL DANCE
ON EARTHEN SOIL


Trouble on...
