Misconception that the 'Male Child' was Jesus and Glorious Woman was Israel.
The Male Child
Rev 12:5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.
1. Rule with a Rod of Iron
Rev 2:18, 26-27 "And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, ' These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass... And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations -- 'He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter's vessels' -- as I also have received from My Father;"
The overcomers in Thyatira Church, who reject the wrong teachings of false prophet and false teachers, which seduce Christians to heresies, worldliness and doctrines of Satan, will rule all nations with the rod of iron.
Rev 2:20 "Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols."
2. To the Throne of God
Rev 3:14, 21 "And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, 'These and sat down with My Father on His throne."
This church (esp. in the last days) though rich and powerful was spiritually miserable, wretched, poor, blind and naked. Overcomers who reject the prosperity gospel, hyper grace, worldliness, heresies, etc. will sit on the throne of Jesus.
Rev 3:17-18 "Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing' -- and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked -- I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see."
The 'Male Child' are overcomers of heresies, worldliness, etc. by obeying Him and His words
Birthing the sons of God
Rom 8:18-19, 22-23 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God... For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
Our Lord Jesus was crucified and was raised from the dead the third day. The Holy Spirit, who raised Christ, has since raised godly Christians to become sons of God through the word of God. Stephen was the first son of God followed by Apostle James, etc.
1Pet 1:22-23 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
Brethren, millions upon millions sons of God or 'Male Child' are born throughout the Church Age, and the whole heaven rejoices with our Father God for the birth of every son of God. Do you think God will count you worthy to be a son of God?
