Most of the time when we hear “The Almighty” used as a description we think of it as a description of the Father, and most of the time it does seem to be referring to Him or to the Godhead as a whole, but on at least one occasion in Revelation 1:8 it is clearly Jesus who describes himself as “the Almighty”.
It certainly shouldn’t surprise us. We are told that the Son was involved in making everything that was made (Col. 1:16). That surely would have involved being almighty. Jesus also tells us that He had power to lay His life down and power to take it up again. There are other references to the power and authority that He has over the church, His powerful victory over Satan, His power to save us from sin, and other power as well.
Perhaps we are familiar with the term omnipotent which is one of the attributes of God. That really is just a fancy way of saying all-powerful or almighty. Since Jesus is God it should be expected that He would have this godly characteristic as much as any other characteristic of Deity, but the knowledge is not enough.
Understanding that we have someone on our side that is all-powerful should give us confidence. We should feel courage to face the devil and the world knowing that the One who has our back cannot be beaten. Do you have Christ the Almighty on your side? Christ can do all things and because of that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
