Making the assumption this topic is in reference to Rev 12:17 ...dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The Dragon is Satan
The women is Gods Church
The seed are Christ flock (all of His flock not just "male virgins")

Christ flock is a little flock (Luke 12:32), the remnant of His Church started when it began at Pentacost Pentacost Christ knew there was already false ministers within His Church

Christ flock has always existed with no religious political power ...those Christians who are keeping the commandments of God (all His commandments not just the one's they like or those professing Christians that believe Christ keeps the commandments for them
---Rhonda on 5/31/08

Satan is not looking for professing Christians who disregard Gods Laws or sinners they are already lost

...Satan wants to destroy Gods chosen those who actually keep His commandments this is little flock existing for past 2000 years

can only assume the male virgins mentioned in this topic are refering to parables of ten virgins (mat 25) many misunderstand taking the parable literally as a "real virgin" one who is sexually pure

if poster would clarify

The remnant are a faithful group of believers at the end of the age. They are most assuredly Jews. Scripture tells us that God always has a remnant. The two witnesses of Revelation are most likely a part of this group.

I will ask you a question instead: "which church is the remnant of her seed THAT KEEPS THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, ALL OF THEM AND HAS THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST????

This as only an attempt to answer!
In the Bible, the apostate church is compared to a "harlot" (a woman) and there is talk of many (men in the gen sense) committing fornication with her, by following her and acting contrary to God's will.
NB: In Bible times this illicit activity would take place mostly between a man and a woman.
Hence the male virgins represent all persons who remained faithful to the truth rejecting the opportunity to lay with "harlot" and its traditions. P.

In the Pauline epistles, Paul makes mention on this subject. Those who are not married, mind the things of God, those who are married mind things of the earth. In Revelations, it is also mentioned that they are not defiled (corrupted) either.

Daniel 7:25-26 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. but we win

Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; the spirit of the world, antichrist is working to create the aposate church by false doctrine.

The Bible says "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ....the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (Rev 12:17; 19:10)." The dragon is the devil, the woman is the true church, and the remnant is a 10-Commandment-keeping Christian church with a true prophet. No mention of Jews or male virgins.

The remnant of Jews were the early church at jerusalem all of them were killed either in 70 ad when romans destroyed jerusalem fulfilling Jesus prophecy of tribulation or were crucified by Nero.They were concidered virgins because they were martered and under the blood. jesus came at the end of the world ,we are living by Gods grace in the last day.
