There’s a Jesus Christ, we know before the cross, there’s a deeper revelation of Christ revealed after his resurrection, which began to reveal Christ from the context of his kingdom purpose. But further still, the full reality of Jesus Christ began to be unveiled to the church when John was banished to the island of Patmos to see and hear the ascended, glorified voice of him who spoke like the voice of many waters who is Christ, the pattern son.

The patriarch Job, is a character figure that predates the very theological base of some narrow down religious, or even spiritual argument that merely seeks to build the act of worship, righteousness, justice and the unfolding prophetic program of the father on the mere premise of keeping some ‘rigid’ acts of regulatory laws, beliefs and ceremonies as first seen under the old Mosaic covenant, and subsequently seen in the religious church approach to understanding and interacting with the [Almightiness] sovereignty of the God of heaven and earth, who is also known as our father who is in heaven.
Revelation Itself does not determine nor alter the shape of affairs; it is how we understand and precisely execute the revelatory knowledge that produces impact and the desired transformation. Indeed, revelational [truth] knowledge can greatly enhance our process of development in making the necessary adjustments through the divine knowledge accessed, as we apply wisdom and understanding to the decisions we are taking.
