Revelation 1:1-7

This foretells the future of the unfaithful and the wicked, as well as the holy and the faithful.  Best of all, in no uncertain terms, it tells us who Jesus really is..  With positive proof, it reveals that Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty.

It's a matter of life and death to know who Jesus is. St. John 8:24-26 -- Jesus said, "... if ye believe not that I am HE, ye shall die in your sins..." Too many believe He is the second person in the so-called trinity. That's not in the Bible!

Matthew 22:36-38 and Mark 12:26-29 -- Jesus was asked what the first and great commandment of the law was. He quickly quoted Deut. 6:4 -- "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord ..." Jesus, being God, knew there was none beside Him. This tract is written to furnish proof of the Oneness.


Six Proofs

This book of Revelation gives us six undeniable proofs that Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty. John Believe this before writing the book of Revelation. I John 5:20 -- " . . .The Son of God is come, . . that we may know Him that is true, . . . even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life."


Rev. 1:8  -- Jesus said, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, ... which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Rev. 1:17-18 -- "I am the first and the last: I am He that liveth and was dead; ... and, behold, I am alive for evermore ..." Jesus said He was the first, and the last.  Surely this proves Him to be God, for the God of Israel said in Isaiah 44:6 -- "... I am the first, and the last; and  beside Me there is no God." What further proof do we need that Jesus is the Lord God Almighty?!

To understand this better, we must keep in mid the dual nature of God. He took upon a body of flesh for 33 1/2 years. St. John 1:1 -- "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." St. John 1:14 -- "And the Word [God] was made flesh and dwelt among us..." God did this that He might give His life and shed His blood for the remission of our sins.


Rev. 4:2 -- "...Immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and One sat on the throne."

Rev. 4:6-8 -- There was a diversified group about the throne, worshipping Him that sat on the throne. (Vs. 8 -- This tells us Who was sitting on the throne.) "...They rest not day and night, saying Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come."   Rev. 1:8 -- Jesus said He was the One which is, and which was, and which is to come, The Almighty.

There can be only one Almighty!

Rev. 4:11 -- Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou has created all things..."  St. John 1:3 & 10 -- Speaking of Jesus, all things were made by Him. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.  Col. 1:16-17 -- Paul said that all things were created by Jesus and for Him.  For more proof that Jesus is the Lord God Almighty, we go back to Isaiah 44:24 -- The Almighty God of the Old Testament said, "...I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; and spreadeth abroad the earth by myself..."

Rev. 5:9 -- They sang a new song to the Lamb, "Thou ...has redeemed us to God by thy blood..."  Whose blood?  Acts 20:28 -- The church of God was purchased by His (God's) own blood.  I John 3:16 -- "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He [God] laid down His life for us ..."


Rev. 11:16-17 -- "And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God, ... fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, saying, "We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned."

Verse 15 tells us that Jesus shall reign forever and ever.

For further proof that Jesus Christ is the Almighty, we go back again to Rev. 1:8 -- Jesus said, "I am [the One] ... which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty."


Rev. 15:3 -- "And they sing the song of Moses... and the ... Lamb, saying, "Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints'." He's not only the King of saints, He's the King of Kings!

This is the fourth time in the book of Revelation where Jesus, the King of saints is called The lord God Almighty.   More to come!


Rev. 19:13-16 -- "...He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called the Word of God ... He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORD." What further proof do we need that Jesus is the Almighty God?!


Rev 21: 22 & 23 -- "And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, ... for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof."


God and the Lamb are one. St. John 10:30 --  Jesus said, "I and my Father are one."  I Timothy 3:16 -- Paul said, "...without controversy great is the mystery...: God was manifest in the flesh [the lamb], justified in the spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, ... received up into glory."

Jesus knew it was a mystery. St. John 16: 25-26 -- "These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no longer speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the father."

Rev. 22:3 -- "...The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him [singular]: and they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads."  Please note that it's never "them" or "their", but always "Him" or "His".

Rev. 4:2 -- "...A throne was set in heaven, and One sat on the throne." The oneness of God is Biblical and very clear. It's so amazing that anyone could believe in the trinity.


Final and undeniable proof that the Father and the Son are one, and that Jesus is the Lord God Almighty. Rev. 22:16 -- "I Jesus am the root and offspring of David..."  He's telling us that He's the father and son of David. This is because of His dual nature, divine and human.

The major prophet Isaiah reveals this great truth in Isa. 9:6 -- "Unto us a Son is given ... and His name shall be called... The mighty God, The everlasting Father ..."  Yes, the son is both God and Father!

All I wanted to write in this tract was the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. We must worship God in Spirit and in TRUTH. Only the TRUTH can set you free.
