It is not ours to pick and choose what we believe or disbelieve in the Bible. It is also not ours to choose the Jesus we believe in, or the God we desire to believe. It is not ours to make God into the image of what we feel comfortable with.
It is ours to believe the words of the Bible, all of the Bible – written by men; directed and inspired by God. It is ours to believe in Jesus and God the Father as represented by the Word, God’s own words to describe Himself to us His people.
It is ours to be molded and changed, as Jesus sees fit to do. It is ours to accept the Lordship of Christ in our lives.
We don’t make God into our image, God made us in His image. We don’t change God into what we desire Him to be in order to fit our needs – God changes us to fit His needs and desires for us – that we may become what He intended for us to be in Him.
If you have to change Him, then you don’t know Him. If you disagree with and disbelieve in His Word, then you are a not a child of His, rather you are a child of the god of this world.

Revelation 1 says God gave the revelation of Jesus to him for his servants. That make John the scribe.
To that I say a hearty Amen! So why do most who call themselves Christian believe in so many things that are never even mentioned once in the Bible? Like Trinitarianism, sin nature, original sin, total depravity, shame and guilt are from God, etc etc etc….. .
Even so… Maranatha!!
Many of those things have a firm foundation in the Bible even if they are not directly mentioned. They are supported by what the Bible teaches, and many things such as the rapture are taken from the original Greek words, such as harpazo in this case. https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?t=kjv&strongs=g726
