Revelation 2:28





28 And [kai] I will give [didomi] him [autos] the morning [proinos] star. [aster]    KJV-Interlinear



28 and I will give him the morning star.    NASB



The bright morning star typically is the term used to refer to Venus.When on occasion it rises in the early morning, it is the brightest object in the sky.  It promises the beginning of a new day, and the passing away of darkness.


However, we can hardly expect that Christ is going to give each person a planet, let alone Venus.  There is only one of it, anyway.


Elsewhere in the scriptures the morning star if referenced in Dan. 12:3, Isa. 14:12, Num. 24:17, but Christ did not say here that he was going to make the believer who overcomes, ‘like’ the morning star, or that he would ‘compare’ the believer to the morning star, or even to look to the ‘future’ for a particular star.


Here, Christ said that He would ‘give’ the morning star.


The morning star is a title of Jesus Christ in all of His glory.


In the night sky, the star is at its brightest.Even in the daylight the star is visible over all other light.


To give, ‘didomi,’ means to convey as a possession for ones sole and total use.


As we have said, Jesus Christ possesses the title, ‘Bright Morning Star,’ Rev 22:16, 2 Peter 1:19.  So, Jesus Christ promises Himself.


For now in this life we can only know Him in part.  Our physical limitations limit our knowledge and wisdom.But in eternity, in the next life, we can know Him fully, 1 Cor. 13:12.


Bible doctrine is the mind of Christ, 1 Cor. 2:16.Jesus Christ is the Word, John 1:1.In heaven Jesus Christ is glorified.He was glorified after He ascended, after His resurrection.


Therefore, no earthly person is capable of receiving this huge reward or gift.It comes only after the resurrection of the believer, and after the believer has himself been glorified by means of the Judgment Seat of Christ.


But the timing of this gift is not in view here, it is the actual gift and the magnitude that it represents, and to whom it will be given.


The person who overcomes, is the mature believer.We have already studied this.Therefore, be mature, and that will secure probably the greatest gift of them all, possession of Christ, Himself, and all that, that implies. Phenomenal glory, phenomenal knowledge, phenomenal wisdom, phenomenal ability.  You can let your imagination go with this one, and you will never be able to grasp the complete significance of this gift.


But suffice to say, if you do not advance to spiritual maturity, then you will not receive this gift.


At what point in your life, will the gifts of eternity, be sufficient to cause you to want doctrine, and to stay with it?
