The object that some of the Doves have photographed is not Niburu or the comet Elenin. It is the planet Venus as it has now emerged from the far side of the sun, the superior conjunction which occurred mid-August, to be visible during the day. That is why it is called the DAY STAR. Like the moon, Venus is the ONLY other celestial object that can be visible during the daytime. Soon it will be visible without the aid of a camera in the evenings in the Western sky.
What does the Bible have to say about the DAY STAR?
2 Peter 1:19 KJV - We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
The Day Star in this passage is metaphorical of Christ and the Gospel.
Thayer’s Lexicon and the Blue Letter Bible defines Day Star or phophoros (Strong’s G5459) as:
1) Light bringing, giving light
2) The Planet Venus, the morning star, the day star
3) Metaphorical of Christ
Paul connects the ‘more sure word of prophecy’ to the contemporary understanding of the planet Venus (Phosphoros) and this is the reason why:
Before the time of the Christ most believed that the planet Venus was two different celestial objects. When Venus was visible in the east, it was called ‘Eosphorus’ (origin of our word east) and when it was visible in the west, it was called ‘Whesphorus’ (origin of our word west). Around the time of Christ, the Greeks realized that the two separately appearing objects were really one and the same. The Greeks then merged the name of ‘Eosphoros’ and ‘Whesphoros’ into ‘Phosphoros’, the DAY STAR.
Just as the astronomers of the day gained a MORE SURE UNDERSTANDING of the single object Venus (vs. two objects), those who had received the Gospel had a MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY. They understood then the Old Testament prophecies, fulfilled in Christ. In both cases, the DAY STAR (the Christ and the Planet Venus) had arisen from partial knowledge which is now MORE SURE.
