"light bringer", "the morning star": Isaiah 14:12 (helel , "spreading brightness".) Symbol of the once bright but now fallen king of Babylon. The title belongs of right to Christ (Revelation 22:16), therefore about to be assumed by antichrist, of whom Babylon is type and mystical Babylon the forerunner (Revelation 17:4-5). The language is primarily drawn from that of Satan himself, the spirit that energized the pagan world power Babylon, that now energizes the apostate church, and shall at last energize the last secular antichrist (the fourth kingdom little horn) and his champion, the false prophet (the third kingdom little horn), the harlot's successor, who shall oppress Israel, as the fourth kingdom little horn oppresses the Gentile world: Daniel 7:8-26 (Chaldee); Daniel 8:9-11 (Hebrew); Revelation 13:4; Revelation 16:13-14; 2 Thessalonians 2:9. "Lucifer" is thus naturally applied to Satan (Luke 10:18; Revelation 12:8-9; Judges 1:6). Jesus saith, cf6 "I will give him that overcometh the morning star", i.e. Myself (Revelation 2:28; Revelation 22:16); reflecting My brightness, he shall shine like Me "the morning star," sharing My kingly glory of which a star is the symbol (Numbers 24:17; Matthew 2:2).
