Which Church Is Right? E. M. Zinn
In Matt. 16:18 Jesus said, "I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." "My church" indicates sole possession. The thought which naturally comes to mind is, what church did He mean, or which did He build? Was it a church comparable to the rest of the churches? Or is it a separate, distinct body in which all its members have salvation? The fact that Jesus said, "I will build my church," definitely shows that He was the builder and organizer. One popular opinion is that the Church of God is a church among the rest‹on par with them and like them in formality and association. Jesus said in St. John 10:9, 10, "I am the door: by me if any man enter in he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture." We go through the door (Christ), which is the only process by which we obtain salvation and membership in His church. Read more at:

BEWARE OF RAPTURE DOCTRINE
The origin of Rapture False doctrine: John Darby1830 AD
That doctrine is sucking people up faster than a sink-hole. Some say that the Rapture doctrine did not exist before John Darby invented it in 1830 AD. Before it" popped into John Darby's head" no one had ever heard of a secret rapture doctrine. Further reference shows that John Darby only popularized the doctrine
1. Rapture doctrine is not a recent "new doctrine" in the history among the Church. Another doctrine which is somewhat recent is the invention of the sinner's prayer for salvation by Billy Sunday in 1930, which was made popular by Billy Graham in1935.
2. References shows that John Nelson Darby’s popularization of the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine around 1830 AD is overshadowed. There can be no millennium after He comes. The doctrine of the millennium is, therefore excluded from the Bible, and is a mere tradition having its origin in Cerinthus, the most noted heretic of the first century.
But what about the thousand years in Revelation? Let us examine it carefully. In the first place we observe that it is not a reign of men in the body, but of “the souls of them who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God.”
We further see, that they had not during their life upon the earth “worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark” upon them; hence we conclude that they lived in the early part of the Christian era, before the beast made his appearance..
In another chapter the Revelator sees these same souls under the altar, and heard them cry “with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell upon the earth?… And it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow-servants, also, and their brethren, that should be killed, as they were, should be fulfilled.”* These souls were resting, hence we understand that this vision also applies to their thousand-years’ reign with Christ. We also see in the above that the thousand years lies between periods of martyrdom; and that those who reigned were the victims of the first, awaiting the death of those of the second.
But are those thousand years past, or are they yet to come? Let us turn again to the twentieth chapter and make a further investigation of this subject. We find the devil was chained during that period (Revelation 20:3).Of course none would take this to be a literal chaining, for a spiritual being could not be thus confined. In what sense was he chained? By reading a little further, we find his chaining was a deprivation of the privilege of deceiving the nations (Revelation 20:3).
