Which god? God or god?
“Thou shalt have no other god before me.” (Exodus 20:3 KJV)

And then there was the concept that somehow Jesus fits in with it.
No doubt there's going to be a few changes in the original hype cycle chart in order to have it work within the context of Revelation.
First off -
Ge 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Jn 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
Jn 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
For example, Paul writes this in Hebrews 5:11-
We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
Not to say that the intent of what Paul says isn't important, but for this context in this particular article -
In any case -
Now it should begin to make even more sense. As we grow in our faith -
If we go back now to the original definitions of the 5 stages, we should be able to modify them as well. It might look something like this:
Interesting, isn't it? It was to me -
Mt 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
And not to really get ahead of things, since this is all about Revelation, there's always:
Rev 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
So we know the end too -
Next thing is to start getting something from the Book of Revelation added to the chart. But it's getting late, so that'll have to be part 4.
