50-50....very nice people...I am sure you both have the right answer stick out tongue

Well lucifer is the Light Bringer....but what do you mean wit what is the Morning Star...like Shakya said it is Venus....do you mean in the Bible it says some time that one of either is the Star?

Storm
Lucifer is Jerome' s direct translation in his Vulgate of the Septuagint' s Greek translation, as heosphoros, "morning star" or "day star," literally "bringer of the dawn" (Isaiah 14:12).

FeceMan
I believe that it is Lucifer. Pre-fall, of course.

debbiejo
Here's the answer......

Jesus Reveals Himself

"I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star." (Revelation 22:16)

This verse presents the most shocking revelation in the entire Bible. On the very last page, it reveals Jesus as the "bright and morning star". In other words, Lucifer-- Satan!

In Isaiah 14:12, St. Jerome, translated the Hebrew "morning star" into the Latin term "Lucifer" (light bearer), a name commonly ascribed to Satan by Christians, and represents the fallen star, an ancient symbol for the fallen or evil one. The mourning star actually appears as the planet Venus, the brightest "star" in the sky (but the ancients did not know about planets). Venus always appears low on the horizon, thus it looked like a fallen star (fallen angel) to the believers.

Although the Isaiah verse describes the fallen king of Babylon, Christians have, for centuries, ascribed Satan as taking many forms. And what more powerful form could an evil being take than to pretend himself as the saviour of the world? This would certainly explain the hate filled verses attributed to Jesus and the blind followers who inherit ignorance. Thus, a conclusion, based on Christian beliefs of Satan, and the belief in the "inerrancy" of the Bible, one must conclude that Jesus has revealed himself as Satan!

What a Revelation!

The scriptures in Isaiah also is symbolic to the fall of Satan as described elsewhere in the New Testament Both from Heaven and at the end of his reign on earth. Lucifer was a bearer of light when he was an angel of Heaven according to the Bible but became the Prince of Darkness after his fall. I asume then Jesus is called the bright morning star because it is said of Him to be the light of the earth. This to me is symbolic of hope and giving direction.

What a Revelation!
Or...when Satan fell, he no longer was the morning star; his position was given to the 'light of the world'.

DirectorFitz
Ezekiel 28:13 of the KJV and NKJV seem to hint that Satan was involved with music in Heaven. The two Scripture passages that describe Satan before he fell are Ezekiel 28:12-19 and Isaiah 14:12-15. Satan was the “anointed cherub” (Ezekiel 28:14). He was adorned with every precious jewel imaginable (Ezekiel 28:13). He was “the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty” (Ezekiel 28:12b). Likely he was the highest of all angels. He was persuasive enough to convince one-third of the angels to join him in his rebellion (Revelation 12:4). Even after his fall from heaven, not even Michael the archangel dares to stand up to him without the Lord’s help (Jude 9). Satan fell because of pride. He did not like being “second best”. He wanted to be God: “You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain’” (Isaiah 14:13).
Was Satan the head musician? I cannot answer that. Scripture does not say enough about what his duties were in heaven. Considering the fact that the angels constantly worship God (Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8), it is possible that Satan led in worship. For Satan to rebel despite having such an exalted position and close relationship with God – the devil is surely due his eternal destiny (Revelation 20:10).

All of this courtesy of a FAQ section of a Christian site. But, I think when in Isaiah, when they refer to him as the morning star and son of dawn...that means he was most adorned, and being there since the beginning of time.

DirectorFitz
besides that...here is valid proof that they are not one...

"Who is the Morning Star?
Both Satan and Jesus are described the same way in the Bible!

By Guy Cramer

A reader emailed me with the following information (inside the box below):

In Isaiah 14:12 the NIV calls Satan the Morning Star, then turn to Revelation 22:16 you find that the Morning Star is Jesus in the same Bible!

The answer is not apparent in the (NIV) New International Version of the Bible, we must go to the original Hebrew text to find the answer:

The original Hebrew in Isaiah says, "O shining star, son of the morning, how you have fallen from the heavens." Whereas Jesus is the "Bright Morning Star" in Revelation. The confusion comes from the way they translated the Hebrew in the NIV. I have found time and time again that the New King James Version translates much more accurately than the NIV.

Isaiah 14 (NIV)
12 How you have fallen from heaven,
O morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!

Isaiah 14 (NKJV)
The Fall of Lucifer
12 "How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!

Footnotes
14:12 Literally Day Star
While Satan may have been the Day Star he was the son of the morning. While Jesus is the Morning Star. Jesus and Satan (God and Satan) are not equals and never were. God is the creator while Satan (Lucifer) was created by God, the created cannot be equal to the creator.

Once again we find the Bible does not contradict itself."

debbiejo
Guess it's which version you're looking at...

Isaiah 14:12 (KJV) "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"

However, here's how the verse appears in some modern translations:

Isaiah 14:12 (NIV) "How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!"

Isaiah 14:12 (NASB) "How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations!"

Isaiah 14:12 (Young's Literal Translation) "How hast thou fallen from the heavens, O shining one, son of the dawn! Thou hast been cut down to earth, O weakener of nations."

Thought this was interesting too..

Job 38:7 (KJV) "When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?"

In Job 38:7, the KJV indicates that this is not just a title for Christ, as it is also given to other angelic beings.

Probably came from an older source.

"Light-bringer," Latin title for the Morning Star god who announced the daily birth of the sun..Cannanite called him Shaher, The Jeish Shaharit (Morning Service) still commemorates him. Shaher's twin brother Shalem, the Evening Star, announced the daily death of the sun and spoke to him the Word of peace (Hebrew shalom, Arabic Salaam)..Shaleem was worshipped along with his brother in Jerusalem, which means "House of Shalem." Shaher and Shalem were the same as the Greeks Dioscuri or Heavenly Twins, Castor and Pollux, born of Leda World Egg...Cannanite myth said Shaher coveted the superior glory of the sun god and tried to usurp his thrown...Pagan scriptures of the 7th century BC include a dirge for the fallen Morning Star:

How hast thou fallen from heaven, Helel's son Shaher! Thou didst say in thy heart, I will ascend to heaven, above the circumpolar stars I will raise my thrown, and I will dwell on the Mount of Council in the back of the north, I will mount on the back of a cloud, I will be like unto Elyon..

Centuries later, a Jewish scribe copied this Canaanite scripture into the Bible and pretended it was written by Isaiah..Quoting Isaiah 14:12-14

So my poll was flawed because I didn't have all the choices, but kept it Biblical only.

DirectorFitz
The point I wanted to get across in my posts is that son of dawn and morning star are totally different in description. Now, as the post mentioned, morning star was a mix up in translation from hebrew to the NIV. It was originally son of morning...and in revelation, Jesus does not call himself son of morning, he calls himself the bright and morning star.

I understand your point...But why is this information found in earlier records like the one I've just mentioned?.....

This one.

"Light-bringer," Latin title for the Morning Star god who announced the daily birth of the sun..Cannanite called him Shaher, The Jeish Shaharit (Morning Service) still commemorates him.

Centuries later, a Jewish scribe copied this Canaanite scripture into the Bible and pretended it was written by Isaiah..Quoting Isaiah 14:12-14

So, what's this all about....It came first...

"How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: . . . I will be like the most High."

I agree with debbiejo that Jesus, and Lucifer are correlated. Light bearer is a title given since immemorial time and in most civilized countries to anyone who brings light to others, such as Lucifer, Jesus or Prometheus.

The planet Venus is said to be the light-bearer of our earth; Venus in greek is Phosporous what means light bearer.

Prometheus, who brought fire and thus light to humanity and who was thus etymologically a Lucifer or Light-bearer. Prometheus was banished of Olympus by Zeus, as Lucifer banished from heavens by God.

In the Book of Revelation, Christ referred to himself as “the bright and morning star,” that is, Lucifer. Christ, Prometheus, and Lucifer were all symbolic bringers of light to the world.

There is some association to light bearer as bringer of life too.

In egypt there is the goddess Bast, she is represented as being one of the goddesses of the birth chamber, and it is possible that she has some relation to venus ; her son Khensu was declared to make women fruitful and make the human germ grow, he is regarded as a lightbearer sometimes.

There is the representations of Lucifer as a serpent too, in egypt, serpent means life, there is a symbol called Ouroboros which is related to life, and it is a serpent(it is in my sig. picture thake a look, its a serpent eating its tail and its around the symbol). In jew gnosticism, there is the "way of the serpent"(I don´t know if its called like this in english) that in the Tree of Life brings something from its unmanifested level in Kether, into life in Malkut.

debbiejo
Whooooo Kabala in the end there...Kether into life in Malkut...Kether the source all the way down the Tree of Life.. Kether to Chokman ( Father), Binah(Mother), Geborah, Chesed, Tepheret( Christ like, inner mastery, balance, harmony), Hod (mind), Netzah( Intuition), Yosod(Inner creator or beliefs..womb of creations, blue prints)...to Malkut..(earth, and life experiences.)

finti
just had to do it once more to highlight a point made earlier

debbiejo
Well maybe someone will catch it this time..... big grin

finti
I have my doubts

drjmpc
One conclusion appearing to be natural that has been over looked is that the "son of the morning" and "bright morning star" are interelated but not referring to the same thing.

ex: Son of the Morning = following or descending from the morning.
Morning represents light, or more specificly the light of the sun. The Sun as a metaphor, however inappropriate due to its limiting nature, has also been seen as being representative of the Almighty. Humans are commonly seen by a great many as children of God. Angels have been identified by many as the spiritual representation of us who have "ascended" to be with the Almighty. Lucifer, originally being a child of God and the most exhaulted angel before, in affect, be described as "the son of the morning".

drjmpc
Using this logic, it is more than quite concievable that he was a worship leader touting the praise & coming of the Almighty, and being a musician or having the angelic equivalent of what might be called in the christian church "Minister of Music" makes a great deal of sense. As the "minister of music" with in the christian church helps to initiate the worship service. Why is that signficant? Similar to a Standard Bearers & Drum corps in ancient armies, they announce the coming of the main attraction or Priest, and provide praise to the cause, in this cause the worship of the Almighty.

The son of the morning, morning star, or Venus is visable prior to the full rise of the sun and reflects its light. Mix it all together and what you have? Lucifers primary function was to reflect the Almighty's light to the world. The moment he began to "attempt to broadcast" his own light, he was kicked out of heaven. He could not be described as the son of God without a great deal of confusion. So, the son of the morning moniker stuck. Christ being The Messiah who would be responsible for reflecting the Almighty's light to the world, would also be described as the morning star but a distinction had to be made for he could not be placed in the same category of Lucifer. How does one resolve this? Enter "The Bright Morning Star". But this still does not elminate Lucifer from the picture nor does it completely resolved the issue. Enter "Son of the Morning" & "Prince of Darkness" titles. Now there is separation. Is it efficient -- No. Is it accurate, who knows. One thing is for sure; this line of thinking DOES follow human tendancy for carving out what they want.

The Hebrew word translated "O Lucifer," in Isaiah 14:12 is heylel {hay-lale'}; it means "light-bearer." It refers to the king of Babylon figuratively but to Satan literally. To dovetail on what was already written by others on this thread, satan is referred to as the “son of the morning” in Isaiah 14:12. But Jesus the Christ calls Himself, “the Bright and Morning Star.” There is NO correlation whatsoever between Jesus and satan.

Many of the prophecies of the OT had two meanings, one meant for their current time and one for the future. In answer to your last question, I believe that this passage is an allusion to Satan being cast down to earth by God and that Satan's influence in the world weakened all the nations.

I find it more plausible that they had no meaning for the future.

That is always a possibility. Sometimes it is hard to tell which ones were meant for the future.

I believe it is a title. Satan held it until he fell.

That is the problem, isn't it. I think the bible says one thing and you think it say another. God never makes it clear.

Nellinator
That is why we need faith in addition to what we can see and rationalize. God wants us to believe and then know not know and then believe. Some people have a hard time with that concept, but I find it just ducky.

Yes, and I think there are a lot more important things to do, in life, them sit around and contemplate an end days, that may never come in your life time.

Nellinator
The end days should be of no significance to Christians. We must live a life full of love, grace, mercy, patience, joy, and good works under the acceptance of Jesus's sacrifice and then we will not have to worry about our eternity. We must concentrate on doing God's will in our life. We must focus on what he have control over (our lives) rather than contemplating what we have no control over.

Thanks shaky for pointing that out.

* we have talked about this earlier, ms.debbiejo... you insisted that the one mentioned in Isaiah 14:12-14, that it was not Satan but the king of Babylon... confused

* but now, you back-pedalled and accepted that it really was Satan to correlate Satan and Christ as the "morning star"... please explain your double-standards... confused

I already posted the introduction, which starts on chapter 13. unless people want me to post the book of isaiah. like I said before, the only time satan becomes a literary character is during the book of jobs.
