You may be looking for revelatory
of or relating to a revelation
While revelatory may be the technically correct word in most circumstances, what struck me most strongly about revelationary was its homophonic resemblance to revolutionary. I can easily imagine an author choosing revelationary in certain circumstances in order to create this homophonic effect for the reader.
