"And we have the prophetic word [made] firmer still. You will do well to pay close attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dismal (squalid and dark) place,"

JESUS is the Logos in the Bible, the WORD is the LORD JESUS even in the beginning, CHRIST JESUS is already the WORD that existed from eternities of eternities and HE is GOD, was with GOD (became a human being) and was GOD Himself, He never changes yesterday, today and forever. The LORD JESUS CHRIST is Our Sure Foundation, - the Living WORD OF GOD.

John 1:1 (Amplified Bible)

IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.

The LORD JESUS CHRIST is like a Lamp unto us because the world is full of darkness and seeing and focusing on JESUS will be difficult, because all people are living in darkness. You will be different from them and you will expect an attack from them, by persecution and insult.

John 1:5 (Amplified Bible)

And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].

B. Until the Day Star arises in our hearts.

"until the day breaks through [the gloom] and the Morning Star rises (comes into being) in your hearts"
