    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:28

    y le dar la estrella de la maana.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 2:28

    Verse 28. And I will give him the morning
    star.] He shall have the brightest and most glorious empire, next to that of Christ himself. And it is certain that the Roman empire under Constantine the Great was the brightest emblem of the latter day glory which has ever yet been exhibited to the world. It is well known that sun, moon, and stars are emblems, in prophetic language, of empires, kingdoms, and states. And as the morning star is that which immediately precedes the rising of the sun, it probably here intends an empire which should usher in the universal sway of the kingdom of Christ.

    Ever since the time of Constantine the light of true religion has been increasingly diffused, and is shining more and more unto the perfect day.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 28. And I will give him the morning star .] So Christ is called, ( Revelation 22:16); and here it designs an illustrious appearance of Christ at the close of this church state, and a communication of much light and grace from him, which introduced the Sardian church state, or the reformation by Luther, Calvin, etc. which is the phosphorus, or morning star, to the spiritual reign of Christ under the Philadelphian church state; which will be the bright, clear, day of the Gospel, when the present twilight, which is between the appearance of the morning star and that glorious day, will be removed: for by this morning star is not meant the glory that shall be put upon the bodies of the saints in the resurrection morn; nor the heavenly glory itself, or the hope of it; but the dawning of the latter day glory, which began at the Reformation, and is promised the faithful professors in the Thyatirian church state, who lived in the darkness of Popery.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-29 - Even when the
    Lord knows the works of his people to be wrought in love faith, zeal, and patience; yet if his eyes, which are as a flame of fire, observe them committing or allowing what is evil, he will rebuke correct, or punish them. Here is praise of the ministry and people of Thyatira, by One who knew the principles from which they acted. The grew wiser and better. All Christians should earnestly desire tha their last works may be their best works. Yet this church connived a some wicked seducers. God is known by the judgments he executes; and by this upon seducers, he shows his certain knowledge of the hearts of men, of their principles, designs, frame, and temper. Encouragement is given to those who kept themselves pure and undefiled. It is dangerou to despise the mystery of God, and as dangerous to receive the mysteries of Satan. Let us beware of the depths of Satan, of whic those who know the least are the most happy. How tender Christ is of his faithful servants! He lays nothing upon his servants but what is for their good. There is promise of an ample reward to the persevering victorious believer; also knowledge and wisdom, suitable to their powe and dominion. Christ brings day with him into the soul, the light of grace and of glory, in the presence and enjoyment of him their Lord an Saviour. After every victory let us follow up our advantage against the enemy, that we may overcome and keep the works of Christ to the end __________________________________________________________________
