What is Revelation?
Revelation is not only a great book in the bible, but is also the act of communicating or revealing divine truth. This is how God shows things to humans. To learn something is different from a revelation. A subject can be learned but not understood, this is where divine revelation comes into play. Revelation does not issue knowledge it builds on knowledge, then takes a person into understanding and the hows and whys then become clear. The one thing that I have found over the years is the enemy is not concerned with how much a person knows, he is concerned with the revelation a person has. It was not knowledge that the church was built on but revelation, Matthew 16:18. With the church being founded on revelation is must also be sustained by it. I was listening to a study that comes out every couple of years concerning how many years the church is behind the world. The study for 2016 showed that the church is now 30 years behind. Now when the Jesus first started the church, it was advanced and ahead of the world. The ministry of Jesus was the first of its kind. Traveling around preaching and teaching, healing people. Jesus was the first person to market his ministry by sending people ahead of where he would be and them telling the people about him and that he was coming, see Luke 10:1-23. This is how crowds and multitudes of people we're always waiting for him when he arrived and they were able to be healed and taught. Now here we are two thousand years later and we are 30 years behind, this comes from fear and a lack of revelation. I remember when the internet first came out and the church was saying it was from the Devil and telling people not to use it. Now almost everyone uses it but there are many churches who do not have any presence online and have allowed the world to just dominate it. Revelation could have shown many people that this was an opportunity for the church to reach people in ways that no one had even thought of, but the church just followed the world into it and the world now controls it. Revelation can show a believer so many things if we would allow it to. The key to getting revelation is being taught the word of God by the spirit of God. Once this happens the believer is on their way to seeing the unseen and truly being the head and not the tail. - Melvin O. Jiggetts
