MORNING STAR II

2 Peter 1:19 ” And we have  the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”

The Scene: A symbolic morning star as the love of Jesus that shines in the hearts of true believers–those who have been awakened to the Truth of His Word.

“When the light of the Scripture is datted into the dark understanding by the Holy Spirit of God, then the spiritual day dawns and the day- star arises in that soul. This enlightening of a dark benighted mind is like the day-break that spreads and diffuses itself through the whole soul, till it makes perfect day. It is a growing knowledge. All who do truth come to this light, while evil-doers keep at a distance from it.” (Matthew Henry’s Commentary p. 1950- Copyright Zondervan 1961)

2 Peter 1:20 “Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
