Morning Star Continued

Both Jesus and the devil are called “lions”. Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The devil is a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.

They are both described as a “light”. Jesus is the Light of the world and the devil masquerades as an angel of light.

Both Jesus and the devil, according to the Bible, have a gospel, a kingdom, prophets, teachers, and angels.

The devil, as we all know, is a counterfeit of all that is holy and righteous. A counterfeit is going to look as much as possible like the real things and deceive people. I have no problem with the Bible referring to both the devil and Jesus as a lion or light because I understand the distinction made.

I have no problem with the Bible calling the devil and Jesus “day star” because – again – there is a clear distinction made. The devil, as “O” day star or “O” star of the morning (morning star), is fallen and cut down. His day-star counterfeit status is exposed.

Jesus, who is described by Peter as “THE” day star or “THE” star of the morning (morning star) is exalted and His future appearance in glory is to be anticipated – so says Peter.

The distinction between the two is enough for me.
