same yesterday, today and forever. Heb. 13:8, " I am the Lord, and I change
not". Mal. 3:6.
2. The bright and mooring star is the announcer of the
rising of the sun.
Here is the greatest truth. As Morning star it speaks about the secret coming of the
Lord for his church which we call as the "Rapture", which is the harbinger of
his open coming which we call as the "Second Coming". "When the Sun of
righteousness will come with healing in his wings " Mal. 4:2 , "The upright
shall have dominion over them in the morning" Psa. 49:14. "The night is far
spent , the day is at hand" Rom. 13:11-12. "The path of the just is as a shining
light, that shineth more and more into the perfect day" Prov.4:18.

heavens. Who is the object of worship and beauty in the heavens?
He is the fairest of ten thousand, He is the Rose of Sharon, He is the Lilly of the
Valley. "who is worthy to open the book and break the seals thereof? " Rev. 5:2,

6. The Morning Star is called the star of the first
Magnitude with respect to its brightness. Who is the one who rose first from the dead?

"Descended first in to the lower parts of the earth" Eph. 4:9, "He fist
