Below are Scriptures relating Jesus’ and others thoughts on His own words, the words in the Gospels. These are the words of Eternal Life (John 6:68), and they are true. Any departure from them is perilous, and the discarding of them is to our own destruction. In all of the 2,000 years since they were spoken, not one of them has transpired or elapsed, and they are as rock-solid today, every last one of them, as they were when they were first uttered in the small nation of Israel under Roman occupation.
The “Words in Red” are Jesus’ instructions for all of humanity, from every nation, creed, tongue, and tribe, they are the Words of Life, and there is no life outside of them.
Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.
Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
There is no other Truth than Jesus. Paul didn’t surpass Jesus’ truth. Peter didn’t understand more. John, in his great revelation as the last book of the Bible wasn’t in possession of a greater revelation than that which Jesus is.
What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life— and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us— what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.
1 John 1:1-4

They shall construct an ark of acacia wood two and a half cubits long, and one and a half cubits wide, and one and a half cubits high. You shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and out you shall overlay it, and you shall make a gold molding around it. You shall cast four gold rings for it and fasten them on its four feet, and two rings shall be on one side of it and two rings on the other side of it. You shall make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. You shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry the ark with them. The poles shall remain in the rings of the ark; they shall not be removed from it. You shall put into the ark the testimony which I shall give you.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). What Moses built in the wilderness was a picture of an unseen thing. He built according to the “pattern” that he had seen on mount Sinai. That pattern was Christ, a detailed look at who He is as the Word of God and His ministry on Earth.
The entire of the tabernacle was a walk through model of Jesus. Every facet of the tabernacle from the ark down to the very tent pegs and number of pillars represented something of the perfect man Christ Jesus.
