Verses:

2 Pet. 1:19 “And we have the prophetic word made more firm, to which you do well to give heed as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”

 

Excerpts:

As the bright morning star before the dawning of the day, Christ will appear privately to those who love Him and who watch and wait for Him, that they may have the priority to taste the freshness of His presence at His coming back after a long absence. Jesus Christ, who is the morning star, is walking today among the local churches. To see the star, we must come to the local churches. The heavenly star today is in the local churches.

 

According to 2 Peter 1:19, the morning star is associated with the Bible. Peter tells us to take heed to the prophetic word. To take heed to the prophetic word is to pay attention to the living Word. It is not simply to read the Word; it is to enter into the Word until something arises within us. We may call this the dawn, or the morning star. In 2 Peter 1:19 the term “morning star” in Greek is phosphorus, a light-bearing substance. A piece of phosphorus can shine in darkness. Christ is the real phosphorus shining in today’s darkness. However, the Word cannot shine over us unless we take heed to it. We must take heed until something begins to shine within us. That shining will become the divine “phosphorus” in our heart. Then we will have the morning star. We must come to the sure Word and open up our whole being to the Word—our mouth, our eyes, our mind, our spirit, and our heart—until Christ as the morning star rises up in us and shines over us. (The Conclusion of the New Testament, Message 411)
