Since both hO KURIOS and hO QEOS can refer to either God Almighty or Jesus in Revelation, the 
reference in 22:6 is ambiguous. Rev. often disambiguates by adding hO PANTOKRATHR if God Almighty is 
in view. Here, the context indicates that the reference is Jesus as the Lord and the God (master 
over) the spirits of the prophets.
