Who is the Real Church that Jesus (Y’shua) Founded?

First, we must understand that the Church are people, not an organization made by men.  Only individual persons can be 'members' of Christ's Body (the Church).  God can and does use individual people in an organization, in a church group, but true disciples of Jesus (Y'shua) SERVE GOD FIRST and OBEY GOD ONLY.  Jesus (Y'shua) calls all true disciples to work together and love each other because we are family, and family takes care of each other.
Catholic defenders keep repeating the same story that the Roman Catholic Church is the true church that Jesus (Y'shua) founded to help THEM BELIEVE.  How do we know this is true?  Should we only accept what they say as truth or should we test it with the Holy Scriptures, the Word of God (THE TRUTH - John 17:17)?
THOSE WHO READ THE BIBLE know that the Roman Catholic Church was not founded by Jesus (Y'shua). Why?  With the Holy Scriptures we can discover who are the true People of God, the real Church founded by Jesus (Y'shua).
Ecclesiastes 12:12-13
“Beware of anything beyond this. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh.  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Matthew 19:16-17
“… one came and said unto Jesus, ‘Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?’  And Jesus said unto him …
‘if you will enter into life, keep the commandments.’
Jesus (Y'shua) said in Luke 6:46-49:
"Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you?
Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. ..."
Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 3:4,11:
(4) "For while one says, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are you not carnal (Walking in sinful Flesh)?"
(11) "For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid in Jesus Christ."
In Matthew 15:13, Jesus (Y'shua) said: "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up (pulled up and thrown away)."
In Hosea 4:6, God said: “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you … seeing that you have forgotten the law of your God.”
Jesus (Y'shua) said in Luke 6:46
"Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you?"
In John 8:47, Jesus (Y'shua) said: “He that is of God hears God's words:  you therefore hear them not, because you are not of God.”
John 10:25-27:
Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. ... you do not believe because you are not among my sheep. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me."
In 2 Timothy 2:19, Paul wrote:
“Let everyone that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity (violation of God’s Laws).”
Proverbs 28:9: “He that turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be an abomination.”
In 1 John 3:22, John wrote:
“And whatsoever we ask, we receive of God, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”
Peter and the other apostles answered the High Priest of Israel saying:
"We must obey God rather than men.” - Acts 5:29
Let me also be clear there are many Protestant Churches who do not obey God also.  The Catholics and many Protestant churches have created their own laws and they say to please God you have to obey their man-made laws.
Catholics promote a false story that they are the original church founded by Jesus.
The Bible shows that the Church that Jesus established was the Jerusalem Church which all the disciples and apostles were members.  All the early churches were under the authority of the Jerusalem Church. All the apostles including John, Paul, and Peter submitted to the counsel of the Jerusalem Church.  The Roman Catholic Church did not exist until much later.
Catholics have been lied to by the Papacy because the Roman Catholic Church wants to control people and lead them to obey the Catholic Church, not to God.  To convince people to obey them, Catholics have to promote the false idea that they are legitimately in control or have the authority of God on earth. Jesus is not dead!  Jesus remains the head of his Church.  Jesus does not need any man to rule in his place on earth like the Pope claims.  The Pope rules by worldly and evil ways and is at war with God.
The Pope does this as a matter of control.  They want to control God's People.  Throughout the history of the Roman Catholic Church they have been consistent in fighting the true members of the Church, the real disciples of Jesus.  Over the centuries Catholics have murdered over 50 million people during the Inquisitions because they did not submit to the authority of the Pope.  Before the Inquisitions they persecuted and murdered real disciples of Jesus who were part of the Early Churches.  Many attempted to translate the Old and New Testament books into other languages.  What was the Roman Catholic Church's reaction to these: Murder!  Burn alive people who translate the Holy Scriptures into any language other than the Latin language, the official language of the Roman Catholic Church.
Jesus said to please God you have to obey God's Commands, God's Laws. All the Apostles and Early Church said to please God you have to obey God's Laws. God said to please him you must have FAITH in who he is and in his Word. God said you must obey.
SIN is a violation of God's Laws.
Anyone who rejects the Word of God by not obeying it, rejects God.
The Apostle John calls this sin.
“Whoever commits sin violates also the law (in the Old Testament):
for sin is the violation of the law (in the Old Testament).”
- 1 John 3:4
As John stated in 1 John 5:3 from the New Testament:
“FOR THIS IS THE LOVE OF GOD, that we keep his commandments (from the Old Testament): and his commandments are not burdens.”
1 Peter 1:23“… you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding Word of God …”
Isaiah 40:8 “…the word of our God will stand forever.” 
1 John 3:24“Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.”
Acts 5:32: “…the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to them that obey him.
God said in Ezekiel 36:27:
"And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes (laws) and be careful to obey my rules."
In the next Bible verses, when Apostle John wrote them, remember the New Testament did not exist yet. Apostle John was talking about God's Laws and Commandments in the Old Testament.
In Revelation 14:12, the Apostle John wrote about the True Church in the End Times:
"Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus."
In 1 John 3:4‭-‬10, the Apostle John wrote:
"Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness (violation of God's Laws in the Old Testament); sin is lawlessness. You know that he (Jesus) appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning (disobeying God); no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness (obeys God) is righteous, as he (Jesus) is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning (disobeying God) is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God (BORN AGAIN) makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God (BORN AGAIN). By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother."
In 2 Peter 3:15-17, Peter cautions about those who are “ignorant and unstable twist” Paul’s letters “to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.” and “knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability.” Peter is talking about are those who live their lives in sin, in violation of God’s laws in the Old Testament.
“But God's firm foundation stands, bearing THIS SEAL:
‘The Lord knows those who are his,’ and,
‘Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity (violation of God’s Laws).’”
1 Peter 1:23 “… you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding Word of God …”
