Bible: Matthew 7:21-23

Judgment of Pretenders

7:21Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ 1  will enter into the kingdom of heaven – only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. 7:22 On that day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons and do 2  many powerful deeds?’ 7:23 Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Go away from me, you lawbreakers!’ 3
