Where is the Church in Revelation?
 To answer that question we must first define the Church.
Colossians 1:18. And he
is the head of the body,the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from thedead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.Ephesians 1:22. And hath put all things under his feet,and gave him to be the head over all things to thechurch,23.Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all inall.1 Corinthians 12:12. For as thebody is one, and hathmany members, andall the membersof thatone body, beingmany, areone body: so also isChrist.13. For byone Spiritare weall baptized into one body, whether we be  JewsorGentiles, whether we bebondorfree; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.14.For the body isnot one member, butmany.
 The reason that there are seven churches listed in Revelation isbecause there are seven different members: Ephusus, Smyrna,Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea. The fact that the word Church is not used again after Revelation 3does not prove at all that the Church is raptured before thetribulation begins. Only the Church of Philadelphia, who is the144,000 virgins are spared from the great trial upon the wholeearth while the remnant of Jerusalem are raptured alive afterenduring almost the whole tribulation period. As we read abovefrom the scriptures there are many members of the body which isthe Church, which is of Christ.
New Jerusalem is the bride of Christ, being one with the Lordthrough consummation is also the body of Christ.
Ephesians 2:18. For through him we both (jew andgentile) have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19.Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20. And are built upon the foundation of theapostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21. In whom all the building fitly framedtogether groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22. Inwhom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Here are the different members of the Churchlisted in Revelation.
Revelation 2:7. "He who has an ear, let him hear what theSpirit says to the churches. Tohim who overcomesI willgive to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.'' '2:11. "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spiritsays to the churches.He who overcomesshall not be hurtby the second death.'' '2:17. "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spiritsays to the churches. Tohim who overcomesI will givesome of the hidden manna to eat. And I will givehimawhite stone, and on the stone a new name written whichno one knows excepthimwho receives it.'' '2:26. "Andhe who overcomes, and keeps My works untilthe end, tohimI will give power over the nations.
Revelation 3:5. "He who overcomesshall be clothed inwhite garments, and I will not blot outhisname from theBook of Life; but I will confesshisname before My Fatherand before His angels.3:12. "He who overcomes, I will make him apillarin the temple of My God, andheshall go out no more. And I willwrite onhimthe name of My God and the name of the cityof My God, theNew Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write onhimMy newname.3:21. "Tohim who overcomesI will grant to sit with Me onMy throne, as I also overcame and sat down with MyFather on His throne.Revelation 21:7."He who overcomesshall inherit allthings, and I will behisGod andheshall be My son. Revelation 6:9. When He opened the fifth seal, I sawunder the altar thesoulsof thosewho had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony whichtheyheld.10. Andthey criedwith a loud voice, saying, "How long,O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avengeourblood on those who dwell on the earth?''11. And a white robe was given toeach of them; and itwas said tothemthat they should rest a little whilelonger, until both the number of their fellowservantsandtheirbrethren, who would be killed astheywere, was completed.Revelation 7:3. saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea,or the trees till we have sealed theservantsof our God ontheir foreheads.''
