I love doing Hebrew and Greek studies because they give so much more meaning to our English language. That’s why I wanted to research what does the word star means in Hebrew and Greek.
All scriptures are taken from NKJV unless otherwise marked.

Aster is a literal heavenly body or a star.
“There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.”
– 1 Corinthians 15:41
This word is used metaphorically of the following things:
- Christ as the morningstar
- the angels of the seven churches (Revelation 1:16)
- certain false teachers (Jude 1:13)
astron- constellation; star.
“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.“
– Luke 21:25-26
“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.“
– 2 Peter 1:19-21
All in all, the word star means the same as it does today. However, Jesus is known as the morningstar. This makes sense because we know that His kingdom is the kingdom of light.

“There are in eternity KINGDOMS OF GLORY to which all resurrected persons (except the sons of perdition) will eventually go.”
“The glory to be received by individuals in the kingdoms of glory hereafter will be in direct proportion to their obedience and diligence in this life.” D&C 130: 18-19
(John 14:2)= “In my Father’s house are many mansions”
Glories are compared in the scriptures as “glory of the Sun, glory of the Moon, and glory of the Stars. One star differs from another star in glory.”
“Glory of the Sun”= CELESTIAL GLORY The highest of the three kingdoms of glory. Those in this kingdom will dwell forever in the presence of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.– the result of a lifetime of righteousness, receive the ordinances of salvation, and other requirements.
“Glory compared to the Moon”= TERRESTRIAL GLORY. Honorable people ” who were blinded by the craftiness of men” D&C 76:71-80, 91, 97″
“Glory of the Stars”= TELESTIAL KINGDOM” Inhabitants of the Telestial Kingdom will differ in glory among themselves “as one star differs from another star in glory.” (1 Cor 15:41). These did not accept the gospel of Christ, neither the testimony of Jesus.” D&C 76:82)
And we will also have the group called PERDITION , no hope for any degree of salvation. They will have to “abide a kingdom which is NOT
a kingdom of glory. Those who know God’s power, have partaken of it, and allowed themselves to be overcome by Satan’s power, and deny the truth and defy God’s power. (D7C 76:31; 76:30, 32-49)

Jesus is the morning star, and Lucifer is too. Literally Lucifer means Morning star, or light bearer. Which is why its used in the latin bible instead of Heosphorus/Phosphorus in the Greek bible.

The believer believes all of the Word of God, (Matthew 4:4) he will receive the Prophet whom God said that God would send, to reject that Prophet would be to say that God made a mistake when God sent that Prophet.
In the following Scriptures God makes it very clear that God will send His End Time Prophet to “RESTORE” the understanding of the Bible as the Apostles knew it.
In this Scripture we are told that the Lord Jesus Christ must REMAIN in Heaven until the times of RESTITUTION OF ALL THINGS,
Acts 3:20 + 21.
20. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
21. Whom the heaven must receive until the times of RESTITUTION OF ALL THINGS, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
The word “RESTITUTION” means “RESTORE.”
The Lord stated that He would send HIS END TIME PROPHET to “RESTORE” the Word of God, as the Apostles knew it.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and RESTORE ALL THINGS.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet BEFORE the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
This Elijah prophet comes BEFORE, “The coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord,” which happens in this day.
We are now living in the last days, God has kept His word and sent His prophet, thereby “RESTORING” His word to His Bride.
God has raised the dead on FIVE occasions through His chosen vessel.
God was photographed SIX times, (Veiled in the form of the Pillar of Fire) with His chosen vessel.
The, “Elijah anointing,” (Concerning the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ) is used “TWICE.”
The first time 2,000 years ago, when God sent John the Baptist, then AGAIN in this day.
At each, “Coming of the Lord,” there is an Elijah prophet who precedes that, “Coming.”
Jesus said concerning John the Baptist.
For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Elijah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
John, “Prepared the way for the Lord,” John did NOT “Restore anything,” as that which would need to be restored, (The full understanding of the whole Bible,) had not yet been given.
These and other “Prophetical scriptures” brought to pass:
Revelation 1:16 – 20.
God`s Chosen Vessel is William Branham.
