Symbols - What does heaven look like

Lucifer

Both the Morning Star and the Evening star as symbols feature quite strongly in poetry and paintings and in all mystical and spiritual systems.

The Alchemists refer to the Morning Star by its alternative name Phosphorus, light bearer and Lucifer. Thus there is no connection with the Devil, nor is Lucifer a 'fallen angel'. It is a spirit of the Morning star, a person who has come down onto the physical level in order to 'shed light' or illuminate, quite a sacrifice really.

Revelation 22:16King James Version (KJV)

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
