Revelation Illustrated to see the whole wonderful collection.

Rev 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
Rev 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
Rev 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Rev 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

This shows Eternal existance of Jesus repeatedly.
In verse 4 John addresses the seven churches, from Jesus and the the seven spirits before the throne.
This phrase "which is, and which was, and which is to come" only occurs twice in the whole bible in the 4th and 8th verses above.
The 5th verse declares what Jesus has done for our sakes. And in the 6th continues to declare our rewards for coming to Christ.
In the 7th verse a phrase which only occurs once here but seems to have similar statements all over the Book. Compare these two verses from the very end of Revelations....Daniel....Enoch...Matthew.
Rev 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Rev 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Da 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Book of Enoch Chap 1 verse 9 And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones To execute judgement upon all,And to destroy all the ungodly: And to convict all flesh

And this from Matthew.
Mt 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

At this point let me list the sevens we shall encounter.
Seven churches
Seven golden lampstands which are the seven churches
Seven stars in the right hand of the Lamb
Seven spirits of God
Seven blazing lamps
Seven seals on the little scroll
Seven horns on the Lamb that appeared to have been slain, and
Seven eyes which are the seven spirits of God
Seven angels who stand before God with,
Seven trumpets
Seven thunders which spoke
Seven thousand who are killed after the two witnesses are raised
Seven heads on the dragon beast, and
Seven crowns on his heads, and later on his horns
Seven angels with the seven last plagues
Seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God
Seven hills on which the harlots sits
Seven kings, five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come
The Beast who is one of the seven kings
