⚫The star symbolizes Jesus

Rev. 9
THE STAR

Jehovah's greatest "star" is Jesus the beloved. [...] Concerning the vision John says: "I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit [abyss]." The proper identification of this star will be the key to the understanding of the prophecy. Undoubtedly that star is Christ Jesus: [...] 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.
