How powerful is Jesus?

He is omnipotent (= the Almighty). The fact that He is praised in worship of His power (Revelation 5:12) — just like the Father is (Revelation 4:11) — demonstrates this truth.

TDNT: In 5:12f. the angelic choirs extol the omnipotence of the Lamb in a seven-membered doxology (8:178, J. Schneider).

His omnipotence is also seen only a few passages earlier where He is spoken of as having seven horns (Revelation 5:6).

TDNT: But the Lamb overcame death (5:5-6) and is omnipotent and omniscient (5:6) (1:341, J. Jeremias). See also the Orthodox Jewish Bible:

Finally, the Alpha and the Omega is “the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8), and the Lord Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega (= the Almighty) as seen in Revelation 22:13.
