The following is a compilation of passages containing the word 'receive' with some summary thoughts in the last half. I found this study quite insightful with much more to think about concerning implications in how I relate to God.
Receive the Kingdom
If you are willing to receive it, this is Elijah, who is to come. (Matthew 11:13-14)
"Worthy are you, our Lord and God, the Holy One, to receive the glory, the honor, and the power, for you created all things, and because of your desire they existed, and were created!" (Revelation 4:11)
saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb who has been killed to receive the power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing!" (Revelation 5:12)
He said therefore, "A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. (Luke 19:12)
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also. (John 14:3)
