Revelation:
1. an act of revealing or communicating divine truth
2. something that is revealed by God to humans
Revolution:
1. a sudden, radical, or complete change
2. a fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something

Revelation exposes truths. Revelation is to cause a radical change in our thinking and lives. As we learn more about God we see what we need to do in obedience. A radical and complete change happens and a revolution is birthed by revelation. As we study these scriptures open your heart and mind as we explore deep truths that will reveal who God is and what His plan is for us.
