Revelation 1:8 – the Almighty” shows God’s sovereignty

Revelation 1:8 – …who is and who was and who is to come…

As discussed in Revelation 1:4, the title: “Who is and who was and who is to come” introduced God the Father. This same title denotes the eternal nature of Jesus, who is one with the Father, as shown in the passages below:

Micah 5:2 – “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.”

Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

 

Revelation 1:8 – “…the Almighty.”

The Greek word translated as “Almighty” can mean ruler of all, the one who holds all, the one exercising absolute dominion with unrestricted power, or “omnipotent,” as translated in Revelation 19:6. In short, the title “Almighty” shows God’s sovereignty. A similar title was also given in a prophecy of Christ’s birth:

Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

“Almighty” is found throughout the Old Testament as a title for God. The first time in Scripture we find this title, is when God made His covenant with Abram and changed his name to Abraham:

Genesis 17:1-2 – When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.”
