⚫ Christ Jesus is given the key
The words of Revelation 9:1, "to him was given the key of the bottomless pit [or abyss]," definitely identify the Star as Christ Jesus. (Rev. 1:18; 20:1) No one but Christ Jesus is given the key to the bottomless pit, or abyss; hence the Star mentioned must be the Lord Jesus Christ himself. At his death he went into the abyss, or "pit", but God brought him up therefrom; and having gained this victory over death he would be the one properly entrusted with the key thereto. (Ps, 16:10; Acts 3:15)
