What is the specific challenge which is necessary to overcome even unto death (Hebrews 12:4)? The full obedience to Jesus (John 14:21-23).

We must demonstrate at any cost on earth that we learn the specific character which is necessary to live with God: FOLLOW the unwavering obedience to Cod only, even unto death, not our own will. Hebrews 12:4. Luke 22:42.

Heaven will not tolerate one human being who has not proven on earth that we will not be another problem in the new world to come. I know that we are saved by grace but, according the words of Apostles, we are compelled to work our salvation with courage, fear, trembling, even to premature death (Hebrews 12:4) for the name of Jesus to show that it is worth dying for His brothers. We are of the essence of God, we are made at their image.

'saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.'  Luke 22:42 ASV
Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin:  Hebrews 12:4 ASV

Jesus is our Brother from the same God the Father

Hebrews 2:11-13 ASV
(11) For both he that sanctifieth and they that are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

(13) And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold, I and the children whom God hath given me.

Like Jesus, we are also gods of the essence of Elohim (God), hence, called to become holy like God

(27)  And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Psalms 82:1-8 ASV
(1)  A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of God; He judgeth among the gods.
(2)  How long will ye judge unjustly, And respect the persons of the wicked? Selah.
(3)  Judge the poor and fatherless: Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
(4)  Rescue the poor and needy: Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
(5)  They know not, neither do they understand; They walk to and fro in darkness: All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
(6)  I said, Ye are gods, And all of you sons of the Most High.

(8)  Arise, O God, judge the earth; For thou shalt inherit all the nations.

(36)  say ye of him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
