Day Star

The Day / Morning Star (Venus)

“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:”
2 Peter 1:19

“I Jesus…am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”
Revelation 22:16

“And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star.”
Revelation 2:26-28

Jesus Christ

Jesus referred to himself as the “morning star” while Peter referred to him as the “day star” which is a reference in reference to the planet venus. In the sky, stars and planets look practically identical, so how is Venus indicated symbolically? One of the ways that this can be done is by a star symbol, since stars and planets appear similar in the sky. You can imply difference by flipping the star upside-down. The top of the star will then be pointing towards the earth, potentially symbolic of Christ’s condescension, or the way the planet Venus reflects light toward the Earth. In LDS Symbology an upside-down five-pointed star is potentially connected with the idea of Christ being the “day” or “morning” star.
