Beloved, the buck stops with you. Don’t place the issue of your eternal well-being in the hands of anyone.
You can not afford to get to heaven before reality would be dawn on you and then you discover then what you can discover yourself here now.
It is true that you are associated with a particular church and truly the Bible is what is being preached there. But then you must find out whether it the gospel that focuses on what shall make the hearers miserable at the end of  time.

1 Corinthians 15:19   If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

 Or  it is the gospel that focuses  on the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world  to redeem your precious undying soul from damnation. Your own soul shall not be damned in Jesus name.

1Pe 1:18 — 20 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

Revelation 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Beloved , do you know why apostle John along side with others in Bible days were willing to go through any traumatic, painful and shameful circumstances to defend their faith?  It was because of their resolve to ensure what the Bible refers to as :
TESTIMONY OF JESUS, WAS SUSTAINED UNTIL OUR LORD SHALL COME AT THE END OF TIME. See it yourself.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

 
This testimony of Jesus Christ was the essence or Crux of the matter in the Bible,  from the book of Genesis to Revelation.  It is the spirit of prophecy. See it yourself.

Rev 19:10  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Beloved, when our Lord Jesus Christ was here during His earthly ministry, He told the blind leaders of the Bible days to search the scriptures, to discover the Crux of the scriptures.  See it yourself.

Jn 5:39  Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

Now see the Crux of the scriptures your self and examine yourself, whether you are following the gospel that focuses on what shall make it’s hearers miserable at the end of time or the other gospel that focuses on the glorious Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Genesis 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Beloved see how this gospel of the testimony of Jesus was emphasized even before our Lord went to the cross and gave His life for the redemption of humanity.
1. Job

Job 19:25 — 27   For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body,  yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold,and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

2. Prophet and king David.

Psa 22:11 — Psa 22:18  Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for  there is none to help. Many bulls have compassed me:strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they  pierced my hands and my feet.  I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

3. Isaiah

Isa 53:1 — 7.  Who hath believed our report?and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions,he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

4. Jeremiah

Lamentations 1:12   Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me, wherewith the Lord hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.

5. Daniel

Dan 9:23 — 26  At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision. Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

6. Zechariah.

Zechariah 12:10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Beloved, be like Bible days believers, who were willing to shed their blood like apostle John, Peter, Paul for the testimony of Jesus to be propagated. May the good Lord depend on you in particular in Jesus name.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Dearly beloved, the Bible in it’s entirety from the book of Genesis to Revelation reveals the testimony of Jesus. See it affirmed.

Rev 1:1 — 2  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

Rev 19:10  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself summed this testimony, up in His teaching, to be His being lifted up on the cross, as a sacrificial Lamb to redeem the whole world.

John 12:32  And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

Jn 3:14 — 15  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Now after His resurrection and ascension, Bible days believers have no other message they preached apart from testifying about Him and Him alone.
This was what apostle John was doing, that exposed him to severe persecutions, before he was banished to Patmos to die in the hands of  dangerous animals, but God spared His life.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ

See the Bible days believers testifying for Christ, despite shameful and painful persecutions.

Act 5:41 — 42  And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

Act 8:3— Act 8:5  As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison  Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.

Act 11:19 — 20  Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only. And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus.

Dearly beloved, very unfortunately today globally the only gospel that is thriving is the gospel that shall make the hearers miserable at the end of time. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name. But then make sure that is not the gospel you have received.

1 Corinthians 15:19   If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

2Pe 2:1 — 3  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Friend, Jesus Christ our Lord Himself revealed why majority of churchgoers globally shall miss the dawning rapture. You shall not miss it in Jesus name.
The gospel these professors of religion received , is the gospel that shall made them miserable at the end of time. See it yourself and examine yourself, now.

Rev 3:15 — Rev 3:20  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

However, the believers like you that shall be part of this imminent event shall receive the gospel that focuses on the testimony of Jesus and shall be severely persecuted sharing the same faith of apostle John. See it yourself.

Rev 12:17  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.

Praise God apostle John persevered and survived it.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Friend, you also must persevere and you shall be crowned after the rapture in Jesus name.

Rom 8:16 — 18  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
