Jehovah God or Jesus Christ?

     In my study of this particular text I came to the conclusion that this
is a reference to God (the Father) for two reasons: first, the designation
"o wn kai o hn kai o ercomenos" has already been used of God in verse 4 as
distinct from Christ in verse 5 (there are, however, similar titles applied
to the Son in other places); second, the title "pantokratwr" throughout the
book of Revelation seems to be used exclusively of God not the Son (if my
memory serves me correctly).

Hope that helps.
