As quoted by Jesus:
And I will give him the morning star.
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”
Rev 2:28 also seems to somehow relate to 2 Peter 1:19.
And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,
Typically the morning stars are divine beings in the Old Testament (Job 38:4-7, Isaiah 14:12) or at the very least rulers… actual persons.
So how does the Bright Morning Star (Rev 22:16) give us the morning star (Rev 2:28) that shall rise in our hearts at the dawning of that day (2 Peter 1:19)?
Is this a round about way for Christ to say he plans on giving us himself on the day of Judgement in our hearts?
How does this reconcile with verses that say Christ is already in us such as:
5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
-2 Corinthians 13:5
