Revelation Time is an album by Max Romeo, released in 1975.

The album explored religious and social problems-oriented themes, and is regarded as Romeo's best album, along with War ina Babylon.[2] Initially, it was available only in Jamaica, where it was re-released in 1977 as Warning Warning! with re-arranged track listing.[3] The album saw its international release in 1978 as Open the Iron Gate, again with altered running order.[4] In 1999 an anthology Open the Iron Gate: 1973-77 was released, consisting of the Revelation Time material and bonus tracks.[5]
