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

According to the grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it. For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work. If any man’s work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
1 Corinthians 3:10-15
A man set out one day to build something in following after God. He did only what He sees the Father do, He spoke only His Father gave Him. He wrote no books, built no organization, established no hierarchy, and built no buildings. His work stands today, outside of time, outside of everything.
Today, we establish works. We build buildings. We write manuals and church government manuals. We learn, study, and write leadership guides.
