For some time I have not been able to receive text messages that come through my iPhone on to my iMac .
Any adjustments or resets that need to be done? Your advice is appreciated.

You need to check several things in order for your text messages to appear on your Mac the same as on your iPhone. Make sure you're signed into iCloud with both devices and of course with the same Apple ID. Make sure you have all the right boxes checked in System Preferences, iCloud, on your Mac and that you have all your settings right on your iPhone.

Also, if you're out and about with your iPhone, you need to have cellular turned on in order to receive text messages, otherwise you won't receive them until you get home and on your own network.

This issue has me crying over and over, because since I changed my iCloud Password some 5 weeks ago, Messages haven't come up on either my MBP or iMac. I had other iCloud issue when I first changed it, and they have sorted themselves out, but for the life of me, I haven't got Messages to work !!!
Signing in/out of iCloud, restarting on so on.
What gets me, is nothing was changed apart from my iCloud Password, and I have given up for now.
