Who are the "Fallen Stars" of Rev.12:4 ?

A "Watchtower" quote reads; 
"That number includes a sizable group of other spirit rebels, or demons. (Rev. 12:3, 4)" 
 Rev.12:3-4 reads; "Then another sign appeared in heaven: There was a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and 10 horns, and on his heads were seven diadems. His tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth. And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she did give birth he might devour her child." 
 That WT quote, is assuming that the stars that Satan hurls to the earth, are his own demons. Yet other stars who are "cast down" to the earth (same Greek word) are interpreted by the WT, as "Christendom" (Rev.8:10-11) and as Jesus Christ (Rev.9:1). 

All three interpretations, are false, according to the scriptures. 
If we accept the interpretation which the scriptures give, those interpretations are harmonious and consistent. The Bible tells us what the fallen "stars" are. God's Word does NOT tell us that they are demons... or "Christendom". 
The Bible tells us, what this "third" is ("third of the stars" -Rev.12:4). Joseph told Pharoah, that "interpretations belong to God" (Gen.40:8), not the "Watchtower". 
If we hope to have truth, we must accept that fact. 
The "stars", are those whom God has chosen, to give light in the darkness, during the "night" (Matt.5:14-15). 
 Phil.2:15 reads; 
"so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine like STARS in the world." 
Dan.12:3 reads; 
"Those who are wise will shine
like the bright expanse of the heavens,
and those who lead many to righteousness,
like the STARS, forever and ever." 
These "wise", who shine the light of truth in the darkness, are the "messengers" (Greek: "angels"), in the "right hand" of Jesus Christ. He works, through them (right hand). They give light to the Congregations/churches of holy ones (Rev.1:11; 1Cor.14:33; Matt.10:23), which Congregations, support that light from Christ transmitted through his "stars" (Rev.22:6; John13:20; Luke 12:42).
Rev.1:20 reads; 
"The secret of the seven STARS you saw in My right hand and of the seven gold lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels/"messengers", to the seven churches, and the seven lampstands, are the seven churches."
 According to Eph.2:6, these faithful stars, are already spirit-born (Rom.8:9) and so already reside, in a "heavenly" position (Heb.12:22-23). 
2Pet.3:17 warns, that these can be "falling", from their secure position (literal translation of the Greek). 
Both Rev.8:10-11 and Rev.9:1, speak of a star that falls from Heaven. 
       (Note: when Jesus is spoken of as coming down from 
        heaven at Rev.20:1, the Greek word, differs from 
        the word "to fall". The Greek of Rev.20:1 means, 
        "to step down" voluntarily... NOT to stumble and fall.)
 Now, what about a "third", whom Satan is able to cause to "fall" from heaven (Rev.12:4)? 
This "third" of the Anointed "stars" of heaven, are mentioned, throughout Revelation. If we accept the Bible's interpretation of this "third", we can see that they are those whom God loves and must discipline, due to their failure to remain faithful, as His sons. God disciplines them, in the hope of their repentance and refinement (Heb.12:6-11). Of them, we read;    
"I will put this THIRD through the fire;
I will refine them as silver is refined
and test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
and I will answer them.
I will say: They are My people,
and they will say: Yahweh is our God.” 
Would God actually subject this "third" of the heavenly "stars", to the "fire" of Satanic persecution and power, in order to discipline and refine? 
(See Isa.48:10; 1Pet.1:6-7; Job 23:10; James 1:12-14; 1Cor.5:5; Luke 22:31)
The apostle Paul recognized the potential benefit of this... 
"hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the sinful flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord." (1Cor.5:5). 

God DOES allow Satan's agents (Rev.9:11; Isa.33:1)... the "Gentiles",
 to "trample" His "holy place", when they "lose their 'salt' " (Matt.5:13; Rev.11:2; 13:7,10; Col.2:8; Matt.24:24-25; Rev.13:11,7). 
So the Bible IS consistent. The FALLEN "stars" are NOT, "Christendom"... the demons ...or Jesus Christ (Rev.12:4; 8:10; 9:1). In all three instances, they are consistently, fallen anointed. 

The misinterpretation of Rev.12:4, is only one of so many instances, where the WT has failed to interpret prophecy, according to scriptural truth. The result, is that they have misguided the sheep of Christ. They are NOT providing "the proper food at the proper time", but are actually among, those "fallen stars" and "wicked stewards" over Christ's household 
(Rev.8:10-11; Luke 12:42,45-46; Hosea 6:5; Rev.11:5). 

This IS, the Great spiritual Tribulation...
 to sift those who genuinely love the truths of God, from those who love a lie, and worship the Image of a lying sign... a so-called "spirit-directed" Idol.
