Maturity, Required

Genesis 6:9      AND THESE ARE THE GENERATIONS OF NOAH. NOAH WAS A RIGHTEOUS MAN; BEING PERFECT IN HIS GENERATION, NOAH WAS WELL-PLEASING TO THE THEOS (Alpha & Omega).

Joshua 1:7      BE STRONG, THEREFORE, AND MANLY, TO OBSERVE AND DO AS MOSES MY SERVANT COMMANDED YOU; AND YOU SHALL NOT TURN THEREFROM TO THE RIGHT HAND OR TO THE LEFT, THAT YOU MAY BE WISE IN WHATSOEVER YOU MAY DO.

4 Maccabees 5:36-38      MOUTH! YOU SHALL NOT POLLUTE MY OLD AGE, NOR THE FULL STATURE OF A PERFECT LIFE.
    MY FATHERS SHALL RECEIVE ME PURE, NOT HAVING QUAILED BEFORE YOUR COMPULSION, THOUGH UNTO DEATH.
    FOR OVER THE UNGODLY YOU SHALL TYRANNIZE; BUT YOU SHALL NOT MASTER MY THOUGHTS ABOUT DEVOTION (to God), EITHER BY YOUR ARGUMENTS, OR THROUGH WORKS.”

4 Maccabees 7:23-24      FOR THE WISE AND BRAVE MAN ALONE IS LORD OVER HIS PASSIONS.
    WHERE IT IS, THAT EVEN BOYS, IMBUED WITH THE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGIOUS REASONING, HAVE CONQUERED STILL MORE BITTER TORTURES:

Job 38:3      GIRD YOUR LOINS LIKE A MAN; AND I WILL ASK YOU. AND YOU, ANSWER ME.

Proverbs 20:11      A YOUTH WHEN IN COMPANY WITH A GODLY MAN, WILL BE RESTRAINED IN HIS PRACTICES/WAYS, AND THEN HIS WAY WILL BE STRAIGHT.

Lamentations 3:27      IT IS GOOD FOR A MAN WHEN HE BEARS A YOKE IN HIS YOUTH.

Daniel 10:18-19      AND THERE TOUCHED ME AGAIN AS IT WERE THE APPEARANCE OF A MAN, AND HE STRENGTHENED ME,
    AND SAID TO ME, “FEAR NOT, MAN WITH GREAT PASSION: PEACE BE TO YOU, ACT LIKE A MAN, AND BE STRONG.” AND WHEN HE HAD SPOKEN WITH ME, I RECEIVED STRENGTH, AND SAID, “LET MY LORD SPEAK; FOR YOU HAVE STRENGTHENED ME.”

Matthew 5:48      THEREFORE YOU ARE TO BE PERFECTED/COMPLETE/SINLESS, AS YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS PERFECT/COMPLETE/SINLESS.

Matthew 13:31-32      HE PRESENTED ANOTHER PARABLE TO THEM, SAYING, "THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE A MUSTARD SEED, WHICH A PERSON TOOK AND SOWED IN HIS FIELD;
    AND THIS IS SMALLER THAN ALL SEEDS, BUT WHEN IT IS FULL GROWN, IT IS LARGER THAN THE GARDEN PLANTS AND BECOMES A TREE, SO THAT THE BIRDS OF THE AIR COME AND NEST IN ITS BRANCHES."

1 Corinthians 13:11      WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I USED TO SPEAK LIKE A CHILD, THINK LIKE A CHILD, REASON LIKE A CHILD; WHEN I BECAME A MAN, I DID AWAY WITH CHILDISHNESS.

1 Corinthians 14:20      BRETHREN, DO NOT BE CHILDREN IN YOUR THINKING; YET IN EVIL BE INFANTS, BUT IN YOUR THINKING BE MATURE.

1 Corinthians 16:13      BE ON THE ALERT, STAND FIRM IN THE FAITH, ACT LIKE MEN, BE STRONG!

Galatians 4:1-9      NOW I SAY, AS LONG AS THE HEIR IS A CHILD, HE DOES NOT DIFFER AT ALL FROM A SLAVE ALTHOUGH HE IS OWNER OF EVERYTHING,
    BUT HE IS UNDER GUARDIANS AND MANAGERS UNTIL THE DATE SET BY THE FATHER.
    SO ALSO WE, WHILE WE WERE CHILDREN, WERE HELD IN BONDAGE UNDER THE PHYSICAL THINGS OF THE WORLD.
    BUT WHEN THE FULLNESS OF THE TIME CAME, THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) SENT FORTH HIS SON, BORN OF A WOMAN, BORN COVERED BY THE LAW,
    SO THAT HE MIGHT REDEEM THOSE WHO WERE COVERED BY THE LAW, THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE THE DESIGNATION AS SONS.
    BECAUSE YOU ARE SONS, THEOS HAS SENT FORTH THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO OUR HEARTS, CRYING, "DADDY! FATHER!"
    THEREFORE YOU ARE NO LONGER A SLAVE, BUT A SON; AND IF A SON, THEN AN HEIR THROUGH THEOS.
    HOWEVER AT THAT TIME, WHEN YOU DID NOT KNOW THEOS, YOU WERE SLAVES TO THOSE WHICH BY NATURE ARE NOT GODS.
    BUT NOW THAT YOU HAVE COME TO KNOW THEOS, OR RATHER TO BE KNOWN BY THEOS, HOW IS IT THAT YOU TURN BACK AGAIN TO THE WEAK AND WORTHLESS PHYSICAL THINGS, TO WHICH YOU DESIRE TO BE ENSLAVED ALL OVER AGAIN?

Ephesians 4:11-16      AND HE GAVE SOME as APOSTLES, AND SOME as PROPHETS, AND SOME as EVANGELISTS, AND SOME as PASTORS AND TEACHERS,
    FOR THE EQUIPPING OF THE SAINTS FOR THE WORK OF SERVICE, TO THE BUILDING UP OF THE BODY OF CHRIST;
    UNTIL WE ALL ATTAIN TO THE UNITY OF THE FAITH, AND OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), TO A MATURE MAN, TO THE MEASURE OF THE MATURITY WHICH BELONGS TO THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST.
    AS A RESULT, WE ARE NO LONGER TO BE CHILDREN, TOSSED HERE AND THERE BY WAVES AND CARRIED ABOUT BY EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, BY THE TRICKERY OF PEOPLE, BY CRAFTINESS IN DECEITFUL SCHEMING;
    BUT SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, WE ARE TO GROW UP IN EVERYTHING INTO HIM WHO IS THE HEAD, CHRIST,
    FROM WHOM THE ENTIRE BODY, BEING FITTED AND HELD TOGETHER BY WHAT EVERY JOINT SUPPLIES, ACCORDING TO THE PROPER WORKING OF EACH INDIVIDUAL PART, CAUSES THE GROWTH OF THE BODY FOR THE BUILDING UP OF ITSELF IN LOVE.

Hebrews 5:7-8      IN THE DAYS OF HIS FLESH, HE OFFERED UP BOTH PRAYERS AND SUPPLICATIONS WITH LOUD CRYING AND TEARS TO THE ONE ABLE TO SAVE HIM FROM DEATH, AND HE WAS HEARD BECAUSE OF HIS PIETY.
    ALTHOUGH HE WAS A SON, HE LEARNED OBEDIENCE FROM THE THINGS WHICH HE SUFFERED.

Hebrews 5:12-6:2      FOR THOUGH BY THIS TIME YOU SHOULD BE TEACHERS, YOU HAVE NEED AGAIN FOR SOMEONE TO TEACH YOU THE ELEMENTARY PRINCIPLES OF THE ORACLES OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), AND YOU HAVE COME TO NEED MILK AND NOT SOLID FOOD.
    FOR EVERYONE WHO PARTAKES only OF MILK IS NOT ACCUSTOMED TO THE WORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, FOR HE IS AN INFANT.
    BUT SOLID FOOD IS FOR THE MATURE, WHO BECAUSE OF PRACTICE HAVE THEIR SENSES TRAINED TO DISCERN GOOD AND EVIL.
    THEREFORE LEAVING THE ELEMENTARY TEACHING ABOUT THE CHRIST, LET US PRESS ON TO MATURITY, NOT LAYING AGAIN A FOUNDATION OF REPENTANCE FROM DEAD WORKS AND OF FAITH TOWARD THEOS,
    OF the DOCTRINE OF BAPTISMS AND LAYING ON OF HANDS, AND THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD AND PERMANENT JUDGMENT.

1 Peter 1:14-16      AS OBEDIENT CHILDREN, DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THE FORMER LUSTS IN YOUR IGNORANCE,
    BUT LIKE THE HOLY ONE WHO CALLED YOU, BE HOLY YOURSELVES ALSO IN ALL BEHAVIOUR;
    BECAUSE IT IS WRITTEN, "YOU SHALL BE HOLY, BECAUSE I AM HOLY."
