Revelation 2:28 – the morning star
Revelation 2:28 – …and I will give him the morning star.
Jesus is the Bright and Morning Star. He promises to give Himself to those who will follow Him. Although the morning star has already dawned in our hearts (2 Peter 19), someday we will have Him in His fullness.
The morning star appears during the darkest hour of the night, before the day dawns:
2 Peter 1:17-19 – For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
Overcomers can have confidence in the promises given by the Lord. They are to watch for Him as they would the morning star in the dark of the night:
Psalms 130:6 – My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning – yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
It is fitting that Jesus is the “Bright and Morning Star”:
Revelation 22:16 – “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
As the morning star appears in the darkest hour of the night, the Lord will return in the darkest moment of human history, at the end of the Tribulation:
Mark 13:24-26 – “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.”
With regard to the promises in the letter to Thyatira, it is interesting that the prophet Balaam, who enticed Israel with sexual immorality and eating food sacrificed to animals (Revelation 2:20 & 24) actually prophesied of the coming Messiah, calling Him a “Star” (Revelation 2:28) and a “Scepter,” which is a rod (Revelation 2:27):
Numbers 24:17 – “I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near; a Star shall come out of Jacob; a Scepter shall rise out of Israel.”
