The following verses have been categorized but are also included in the comprehensive list above:
In reference to Jesus receiving us, i.e. the rapture of the church:
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
In reference to receiving the Holy Spirit, Not applicable to us today as we now have the Spirit. John 20:22 is the only imperative that I could find in the selected verses:
John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (also not applicable to us today).
Acts 8:15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

Receiving the word: Apparently some of these are referring to eternal life and are synonymous with believing in Jesus (e.g. Luke 8:13). The only imperative in this group is James 1:21, which is speaking to those who already saved:
Matthew 13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; (The first “received” has to do with sowing seed. The second “receiveth is “"
Mark 4:16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
Mark 4:20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
James 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
In reference to receiving remission (forgiveness; not justification) of sins:
Acts 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
In reference to receiving the knowledge of the truth:
Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
In reference to receiving the atonement:
Romans 5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
The faithful will “receive” rewards:
