“And I will give him the Morning Star“
WHAT IT MEANS…
Bright and Morning Star is an interesting and complex name. In the simplest terms, it means the star, the bright, the one belonging to the early morning.
Jesus as the Bright and Morning Star is the fulfillment of 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,
And batter the brow of Moab, and destroy all the sons of tumult.”
The Morning Star was the brightest star seen in the sky right before daylight. It’s the indication that a new day is coming.
It represents light, and hope, and new beginnings. Jesus is the Light of the world. He is our hope. And He alone can be the author of new beginnings in our lives.
As the Bright and Morning Star, Jesus is brighter than any other light.

HOW IT APPLIES TO OUR LIVES…
It was so dark, we couldn’t even see our hands in front of our faces. Groping aimlessly through the air in search of a wall…or something that would give us some sort of stability. But there was nothing. Just empty, harsh, scary, and penetrating blackness that we thought would never end.
The electricity had been out for what seemed like a life-time, but it had only been minutes. We were desperate for light to appear and dispel the darkness.
Finally the light appeared, and immediately, everything changed. Even us.
We live in a world full of darkness and despair. Our circumstances often feel like they’re going to last a lifetime. We grope the air searching for something that will steady our hearts.
But nothing changes until the light shows up. And when it does, everything changes. Even us.
