To Active Jehovah's Witnesses Who Think Outside The Box: The "Woman" and "Male Child" of Rev 12 Reconsidered...
The Birth of God's Messianic Kingdom as described in Revelation Chapter 12 has always been a difficult problem for the Watchtower Society to explain. This is because they can not figure out exactly where to place the woman of Revelation Chapter 12 who gives birth to the male child as to where this birth occurs, whether in heaven or on earth.
The Watchtower Society decided to place the birth of the male child in heaven which would mean the woman was in heaven also to give birth to the male child. But of course, this is a problem since this same woman who supposedly gave birth to the male child in heaven is seen on earth when the Dragon was cast out of heaven, where he began to persecute her on earth (Compare Revelation 12:5,6 with Verses 13,14)
You will notice in Verse 5 of Revelation Chapter 12, the Watchtower Society employs the expression the male child was "caught away" [Greek Harpazo] to God and his throne. However, we may find it interesting to note that many Bible translations actually render that same Greek word as saying "caught up" to God and his throne, instead of "caught away".
Therefore if we proceeded on the basis, that the Greek word Harpazo should have been rendered "caught up" to God and his throne instead of "caught away" to God and his throne, as rendered in the New World Translation, then we would have to conclude the woman actually gave birth to the "male child" while she was on earth and NOT in heaven. Which of course, would automatically mean, the "male child" and "woman" both exist upon the earth, at the beginning before the child is quickly "caught up" to God and His Throne in heaven. (Rev 12:5)
After the birth of the "male child" and the child being "caught up" to God occurs, the "woman" is left by herself on earth to be "persecuted" by the Dragon or Satan. (See Rev. 12:13)
