Does Revelation 11:15 show the equality of Jesus and God?

Revelation 11:15 states that "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ." Doesn't this verse show the equality of Jesus and God?


Absolutely not! Significantly, "our Lord" in this verse is not Jesus but God Himself, and Jesus is clearly distinguished from God as "His Christ." While the term "Lord" is often used in the New Testament to refer to either God or Jesus, there is always a distinction made between the two. God and Jesus are never used synonymously.
