The Emphatic Diaglott is a New Testament whose organization of Jehovah's Witnesses has acquired the sole right of publications. (source : Jehovahs Witnesses Proclaimers of Gods Kingdom, page 606

If we look in the Alphabetical appendix of this "Diaglott", we find that the word "Almighty" is attributed to Jesus in Revelation 1:8.



⚫ Jesus is not the Almighty of Revelation 1:8

Thus Revelation 1:8, RS, says : "'I am the Alpha and the Omega,' says the Lord God [AT; "Jehovah God," NW], who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." Although the preceding verse speaks of Christ Jesus, it is clear that in verse 8 the application of the title is to the "Almighty" God. In this regard Albert Barnes in Barnes' Notes on the New Testament observes : "It cannot be absolutely certain that the writer meant to refer to the Lord Jesus specifically here . There is no real incongruity in supposing, also, that the writer here meant to refer to God as such."

This One was not Jehovah God, but was "existing in the form of God". How so? He was a spirit person, just as "God is a spirit"; he was a mighty one, although not almighty as Jehovah God is; [...] In the Greek Bible text the Word is Logos ; hence he may be called "the Word or Logos". Being a mighty one and holding this high official capacity as Logos and being before all other creatures, he was a God, but not the Almighty God, who is Jehovah.

Notice that the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses clearly teaches polytheism. It therefore falls under the judgment of Exodus 20: 3. (see also Deuteronomy 32:39).
