Ephesians 4:4-6
4 One→body there is, and one spirit, just as you were →called← to the one→hope of→your→calling; 5 one Lord, one→faith, →ONE←BAPTISM←; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Hebrews 9:28
so also the Christ was offered once for all time to bear the sins of many; and the SECOND TIME that he →»APPEARS«← it will be apart from sin, and he will be →»SEEN«← by THOSE→EARNESTLY←LOOKING FOR HIM→FOR→THEIR→SALVATION.

Matthew 22:14 KI-&-NWT
For there are →MANY←CALLED/INVITED, but →FEW←CHOSEN.

1 Corinthians 12:13
For truly by one spirit we were →ALL→BAPTIZED→INTO→ ONE←BODY, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink one spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:29
Otherwise, what will they do who are being BAPTIZED for the →PURPOSE←OF→BEING← DEAD ONES? If the dead are not to be raised up at all, →WHY← are they also being BAPTIZED→for→the→PURPOSE← OF→BEING←SUCH?

{Romans 6:3-5
Or do you not know that →ALL← of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were BAPTIZED→INTO→HIS→DEATH? 4 So we were buried with him through our baptism into his death, in order that just as Christ was raised up from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also should walk in a newness of life. 5 If we HAVE→BECOME→UNITED←WITH→HIM in the likeness of his death, we WILL→CERTAINLY←ALSO BE→UNITED←WITH→HIM IN THE →LIKENESS→OF→HIS→ RESURRECTION.

{Please note the significance of the 2 instances of the phrase “PURPOSE OF BEING” (which surpasses any mere metaphorically symbolic-death-&-rebirth implication in reference to the one-time act of baptism, but as to the continual existence of→the constant PURPOSE & →REASON← for a Christian’s baptism which is to inevitabily surrender his/her human life as following in Christ Jesus’ footsteps to the end.→REV6:11; 11:7; 12:7; 13:7,10;}

Matthew 28:19 BYI (& KI agrees)
so go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them →»INTO*⃣«← THE→{‘1 DIVINE-FAMILY’}←NAME of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

{i.e. “IN the name of” implies merely alliance or ‘friendship’ at best,
—vs.—*⃣”INTO the name of” accurately denotes→SONSHIP←.
Thus the more correct word “INTO”, Grk: εἰς (eis**), exegetically implies HEREDITARY→ADOPTION into ’The Divine Family Name’ (as with the force of being given God’s ‘Surname’—Re 3:12; 22:4) which means becoming ‘grafted-into the family-tree/vine’→(Ro 11:16-24; 8:9-39) as a child of the Father, Son & Spirit→(Joh 4:24; 6:63; Ps 36:9; Mt 12:31; Lu 12:10; 2Co 3:6,17-18; 6:18; Ga 4:5-9; 6:8).
…& isn’t it exquisitely & poetically ironic how the WTBTS chose to oversimplify the highly significant intimately penetrative depth of the Greek word “eis”, by rendering it as only “IN” which (literaly per **EISegesis→INjects JW•ORG’s-servitude-agenda bias—(Je 30:8; Isa 10:1,2,27; Ga 5:1,4-10; Ro 3:20; 4:3-5)—INTO such translation/interpretation & thus) implying a far less intimate relationship as if via agency of conveyance (for indenturement & subjugation to institutional hierarchy,—absent of paternal bond/union of adoption—), which at best insinuates “BY THE SANCTION OR AUTHORITY OF”…, whereby the baptismal subject gives/donates/consecrates←HIMSELF→TO God & Son & Spirit, as if a contractual exchange for peripheral/organizational/administrative/legalistic permission/approval by the (objective) ‘Name of the Father, Son & Holy Spirit’ (which notionaly tends to lean towards alleged ‘salvation by works’), →rather→than the contrasted & actual intimate, familial, immediately being repurchased BY, & →ADOPTED←AS→A→CHILD —the IMMEDIATE→OFFSPRING—
OF GOD, →INTO→The (singular)→’Divine Family Name’ as Jehovah’s & Jesus’ own act of unconditionally Loving GRACE because of our faith in Christ (not owing to anything we do), then BELONGING→TO & IN→UNION→WITH→Christ by Spirit, which is what “eis” most certainly & absolutely specifies:

“…literally, “motion into which” implying→PENETRATION←(“unto,” →➡”UNION”⬅←)”‼❗✔

Galatians 3:26-28
26 You are →ALL←, IN→FACT,→SONS←OF→GOD through→your→FAITH← in→Christ Jesus.
27 For →ALL← of you who were →BAPTIZED→»INTO«*⃣←Christ have →PUT→ON→Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor freeman, there is neither male nor female, for you are ALL→ONE→IN→UNION←WITH→ CHRIST JESUS.

1 Corinthians 3:23
in turn YOU/WE→BELONG→to→Christ; Christ, in turn, belongs to God

John 1:12
However, to →ALL← who did receive/accept/look-to him, he GAVE AUTHORITY TO BECOME GOD’S→CHILDREN←, →BECAUSE← they were EXERCISING→FAITH← in his name.

Romans 8:14
For →ALL← who are LED→by→GOD’S→SPIRIT, THESE→are→GOD’S→SONS←.

John 14:20
In that day you will know that I am in union with my Father and YOU→ARE→IN→UNION←WITH→ME and I AM IN→UNION←WITH→YOU.

Hosea 1:10
“And the number of the →SONS←OF→ISRAEL must become like the grains of the sand of the sea that CANNOT BE MEASURED OR NUMBERED. And it must occur that in the place in which it used to be said to them, ‘you men are not my people,’ it will be said to them, ‘The →SONS←OF→THE→LIVING→GOD.’”

James 2:4
…do you not have →CLASS←DISTINCTIONS← among yourselves, and have you not become→JUDGES← rendering→WICKED←decisions?

& Why exactly should anyone apparently EISEGETICALLY PRESUME to claim that any particular of the 9 Happinesses (‘Beatitudes’) would only apply to certain so-called “classes” of Christians with allegedly ‘different destinies’ (like the apparent claim that Mt 5:3,8-12 apply only to tiny minority with ‘heavenly hope’, whilst 5:5 allegedly only applies to a so-called ‘great crowd of other sheep’ who stay on earth?
Rather, was not Jesus addressing & applying Mt 5:3-12… to ALL his disciples equally as 1, right up to the end of His future Parousia?

Matthew 5:3,5,8-12
3 “Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need, since the KINGDOM OF THE HEAVENS →BELONGS← to them.

5 “Happy are the mild-tempered/meek/gentle, since THEY WILL →INHERIT←THE→EARTH.

8 “Happy are the pure in heart, since THEY→WILL→SEE←GOD.
9 “Happy are the peacemakers, since they will be CALLED→SONS←OF→GOD.
10 “Happy are those who have been persecuted for righteousness’ sake, since the KINGDOM OF THE HEAVENS →BELONGS← TO THEM.
11 “Happy are you when people reproach you and persecute you and lyingly say every sort of wicked thing against you for my sake.
12 Rejoice and be overjoyed, since YOUR REWARD IS GREAT IN→THE→HEAVENS, for in that way they persecuted the prophets prior to you.

Hebrews 11:35
35 Women received their dead by resurrection, but other men were tortured because they would not accept release by some ransom, in order that they might ATTAIN A →BETTER←{1ST}→RESURRECTION. …
39 And yet all of these, although they received a favorable witness because of their faith, did not obtain the fulfillment of the promise, 40 because God had foreseen something better for us, so THAT →THEY← MIGHT NOT BE MADE→PERFECT→APART←FROM→US
