I Am the Bright and Morning Star (Rev 22.16)

We conclude our delayed Christmas series today with almost the last direct quote of the voice of God in the Bible. Here the Lord authenticates the message delivered through his messengers and lends his authority to what is promised by identifying himself with his people and as the promise. He reveals himself to be both creator and descendant of David; he describes himself as the bright and morning star – the harbinger of the full daylight of the Kingdom to come. All who hear, all who thirst, all who are willing are invited to come, to receive the promise of his coming. All men should give up all their treasure to obtain him.
