Morning Star

A title of Christ in Apocalypse 2:22. The Morning Star, the Lord's ultimate gift to the conqueror, is Jesus Himself. Among the stars of the spiritual firmament He is the brightest, the Light which enlighteneth every man; the Star of Dawn whose coming precedes the sunrise of the Day of God. The image, with its reference to the dawn, applies to the present spiritual life, in which the faithful already possess Christ.
