  1. Revelation

    In religion and theology, revelation is the revealing or disclosing of some form of truth or knowledge through communication with a deity or other supernatural entity or entities. Some religions have religious texts which they view as divinely or supernaturally revealed or inspired. For instance, Orthodox Judaism holds that the Torah was received from God on biblical Mount Sinai, and Muslims consider the Qur'an to have been revealed word by word and letter by letter. In Hinduism some Vedas are considered apauruṣeya, i.e. "not human compositions", and are supposed to have been directly revealed, and thus are called śruti, i.e. "what is heard". Many Christians believe that the Old and New Testaments were inspired by God. The 15,000 handwritten pages produced by the mystic Maria Valtorta were represented as direct dictations from Jesus, while she attributed The Book of Azariah to her guardian angel. When a revelation is communicated by a supernatural entity that is reported as present during the communication, it is called a vision. Some revelations go further in that direct conversations between the recipient and the supernatural entity is reported. Some revelations are reported along with physical marks such as stigmata and in rare cases, such as that of Saint Juan Diego, physical artifacts accompany the revelation. The Roman Catholic concept of interior locution includes just an inner voice heard by the recipient.

  1. Eugene Reuweler:

    The true God is the unknown God to the natural man and also the unknowable God without His revelation in Christ. God is not only invisible to man's sight , but also to man's senses. In Christ is found a God who is near, who hears, who cares, who loves, and who saves. 'For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ' (2 Cor. 46) 'All things are delievered unto me of my Father and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father neither knoweth any man the Father, save the son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him' (Matt. 1127).

  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Revelation of the depths of the soul In a vessel from my broken heart where my eternal love for you is stored, bloody ink of love of love of suffering, with red tears of sorrow I write about love for you about an endless suffering soul, I can write about my nostalgic feelings all my life, my obsessed nostalgia is eternity devotion to you. The revelation of the depths of the soul, everything but you is insignificant. I immerse myself in a deep hypnosis of love for you, in the dimension of infinite love, where only you are. Neither the pill nor the psychologist will help stop thinking about you, take away these thoughts as if taking your own life. It draws me deeper and deeper into the depths of love, all this is very deep in the subconscious. Life without you is the agony of nonsense. Every second I fall in love with you more and more and this cannot be stopped because it is love.You are like the warm light of my soul, every memory warms the soul, the light of your love is like a night lamp in the terrible loneliness of the night, like the lightest, weightless notes of romantic music. You are the true decoration of reality. You are my eternal hunger for sex, a waterfall of love inspiration in which you bathe, the waters flowing from the ocean of hot passion.A brutal dose of daily excitement from your divine body. My body burns in the eternal flame of lust for love for you. You are forever at the top of the ratings of beauty and my ideals and values, the peak of absolute beauty. Records of likes and reposts of your body shapes are only in my mind. When I think of you, blood cells turn into notes of love passing through the heart, penetrating the soul, in neurons there are only impulses of your image of them hundreds of billions a day, all over the body going into the soul and dreams. A powerful force of love for you comes from me. You are my true ideal of love, the rest are just insignificant clones of your ideal, since you are an example of true beauty, it is with you that I crave to be forever, since you are a priceless gift of all eternities and all universes. My love for you goes to infinity. Author Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
