God spoke to Job and asked him to explain where he was when He laid out the foundations of the Earth, when the morning stars sang together (Job 38:1-7).
Some like to connect this to Satan being a morning star that sang for joy when the foundations of the Earth were laid. There is a distinction made between morning stars and sons of God (Job 38:7). Whether this is a reference to the morning star of Isaiah, one would have to assume that this is the case, and the sons of God are different types of entities to morning stars. For we are told there are different types of Heavenly beings in the Bible. In respect to the son of the dawn, who fits the description of Satan falling from Heaven, we read:
- How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low! (Isaiah 14:12)
Babylonian religion is an attempt by Satan to influence man to challenge God. In doing this, the nations were brought to naught. The reason Satan did this is hinted at in the Scriptures, and appears to be the reason why the Son of God had to die on the Cross of Calvary in the form of a man. Fortunately, Jesus was the Son of God and He had the power of an indestructible life, which enabled Him to overcome the sin he took upon Himself in our stead and rise from the dead. For now we learn of Jesus being the Morning Star.
- I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify these things to you for the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David; the Bright and Morning Star.” (Revelation 22:16)
- We have the more sure word of prophecy; and you do well that you heed it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns, and the morning star arises in your hearts:(2 Peter 1:19)
However, the New Creation is being created from the Old Creation. God has created a master play, even if we do not understand it fully. Nevertheless, we understand that we have the ability to make choices, the same as Adam and Eve made their choices. Instead of individuals being born into a world without sin, as was originally intended, now the type of choice has changed. Everyone of us is born into a world that is governed by sin. Now we have to choose whether we like being ruled by sin or not, instead of whether we will sin because this seems like a good idea.
Individuals need to come to a realization of the futility of a life that is governed by death and seek a better way of life by hating evil and desiring a New Creation.
Metaphorically speaking, people become a new creation when the Morning Star enters a person's spirit, the person is born from above. The person now becomes a new creation, even if a process of metamorphosis is only beginning to take place—a new creation has already taken place. Indeed, just like the ovum that becomes a zygote, a new creation is in process. The Apostle Paul informs us:
- Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
- For in Christ Jesus neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. (Galatians 6:15)
The reason Lucifer is referred to as the morning star is because he actually was once a morning star; except he dropped his guard instead of guarding his charge, and fell from the presence of God. Thus, the light Lucifer now possesses is the darkened light of a fallen star, and he is incapable of providing the morning glory he once possessed. Lucifer is now no different to the mighty who have fallen; they like to reminisce about their former years. And the gullible fall for his tale with awe... especially when he says, "You can be like me. You will never die. For I rule the world." However, only a few get to the place where they see Lucifer face to face. Most simply follow his advice when thinking that their thoughts to do his will are their own.
The New Creation Abounds For All Who Possess The Morning Star Within
