Revelations 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
The last part of the above verse caught my attention.
If people are to be judged this way, one question comes to my mind. Is the church I am with today, written in the book of life?
Then I started to search churches in the Bible.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Okay, Why not do your own search HERE and I bet your church, which you are a member of, will also yield a no result.
The Church of God is already existing from the time of the Apostles. There is no need to establish or create another church.
1 John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
What we need at this present dispensation is the blessed reader that will help us understand the word written in the Scriptures so that we all may have fellowship.
Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.
Why? Because the book is sealed and can only be opened by a blessed reader.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
We are now at the end times. Many are running to and fro. Knowledge has increased and the sealed book is sealed no more because God's secrets are being revealed unto us by the ministers of Christ as stewards of the mysteries of God.
1 Peter 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
1 Corinthians 4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
We that heareth the mysteries must be in one body. For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
1 Corinthians 10:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
Therefore, why am I being a member of one with no body? or simply put it this way, Why do I have to stay in a church that yielded no search results?
Luke 6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
Don't you think it's time to change?
1 Peter 4:17 For the time has come for the judging, starting with the church of God; but if it makes a start with us, what will be the end of those who are not under the rule of God?
