The difference between the truth of God and revelation is very simple. Truth is where Godís been. Revelation is where God is. Truth is Godís tracks. Itís His trail, His path, but it leads to what? It leads to Him. Perhaps the masses of people are happy to know where God has been, but true God chasers are not content just to study Godís trail, His truths; they want to know Him. Ö A true God chaser is not happy with just past truth he must have present truth.

Iím afraid that most of what the Church has studied is past truth, and very little of what we know is present truth.
