Jesus Christ


Revelation 2:28 (NASB)

and I will give him the morning star.

Bible Commentary

Revelation 2:28 is a Bible verse in the Book of Revelation where the Son of God (Jesus Christ) is announcing what He will give to those who overcome. It is clear that Jesus Christ is the One Who is speaking, as we can see in Revelation 2:18, “The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze, says this:”

And verse 26 tells us who He is speaking to, “He who overcomes…”

So Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is saying to those who overcome, He will give them the morning star. So what does He mean by that? The Greek meaning of “star” here is: star (as strewn over the sky), literally or figuratively.

The Greek meaning of “morning” is: pertaining to the dawn.

We can see in the last chapter of Revelation in verse 22:16 that Jesus refers to Himself as the bright morning star. The definition from Webster’s dictionary of “star” is: any of the luminous celestial objects seen as points of light in the sky.

There are many descriptions of Christ in the Bible that pertain to brightness and radiance. As we saw in Revelation 2:18, He “has eyes like a flame of fire and His feet are like burnished bronze.”

Unlocking the Truth-Morning Star

In Revelation 2:28, He is saying that He will give Himself to those who overcome. We know there are many challenges and struggles in life, and we have been given a choice to overcome them through Christ, the gift God gave to mankind.

John 14: 20 says, “In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” This is an amazing and thought-provoking statement. Jesus says here that we are One with God the Father through Jesus Christ, the Son. It is our choice to accept the gift of Jesus and be one with the Father, or not. What amazing love and power we have access to in Him!

We can have as much of Him as we want, according to our level of trust and willingness to open ourselves up to Him. Many Christians carry only enough of Jesus around with them to make it into Heaven when their life comes to a close here on earth. What a pity!

What if we let go of control and fear, and completely abandoned ourselves to Him? He is the Bright and Morning Star. He gave up His life so we could have MORE. Not just after we die, but while we live, here and now!

Revelation 2:28 and I will give him the morning star.

What could we, as humans on earth possibly have that is better than what He has to offer us? Let's open up our hand (and heart) and be willing to give up what is good, for what is best.

He does not force more of Himself upon us, even though He lives in us. He waits for us to pursue Him and ask (pray). May the radiant light and glory of the Morning Star rain down on us, and may we ask for more of Him. 

Study Revelation 2:28 and the other verses mentioned in this Bible Commentary to strengthen your faith and really live…in Him.
