[2Pe 1:19 KJV] 19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
[Rev 2:28 KJV] 28 And I will give him the morning star.
[Rev 22:16 KJV] 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.
[2Pe 1:19 NKJV] 19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts;
[Rev 2:28 NKJV] 28 "and I will give him the morning star.
[Rev 22:16 NKJV] 16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."

Be very careful about which version of the bible you read. It is easy to be confused. The ASV version has Satan as the morning star.
The KJV has Jesus as the Day Star
The NKJ has Jesus as the Morning Star. And the KJV has Jesus as the morning star.
Since 'God' is LIGHT itself,.....all sons of God are more or less 'morning stars', 'shining ones', 'lucifers', 'daystars', etc. 'Lucifer' is the name or word translated for the hebrew word 'helel' rendered only initially in the Latin vulgate text, (being a latin word) while the term 'Daystar' is just as good as any other, as the 'light-bearer' which also alludes to Venus the morning star, etc. In a given mythology, both satan and Jesus are morning stars, so there is no real problem here, but what our own preferred belief system or Christology assumes within a 'hierarchy'.

I elaborate more on this in the older 'Church of Lucifer to open in Texas' thread beginning on page 5 here.

If you are a son of God, then you are a 'shining one', a 'morning star', that is...if you exude the light of God, and walking in his Spirit, do righteous works and bear spiritual fruit. The word 'lucifer' (not even really a proper name in other contexts) is but superimposed with so much superstition, fear and mythology, that to redeem the word or rightfully understand would in fact empower a son of God, to more faithfully be a son of LIGHT, as Jesus said he wished that while the light was with his disciples, that they would become sons of light! (see John).

In any case,....while quibbling over translations and different versions of the bible, we ask but for better clarity in our religious education and finally spiritual insight to probe into these matters more prudently
