I Never Knew You

Matthew 7:21-23  Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.  (22)  On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’  (23)  And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’


Matthew 25:10-13  And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut.  (11)  Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’  (12)  But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’  (13)  Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

Luke 13:24-28  “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.  (25)  When once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, open to us,’ then he will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from.’  (26)  Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’  (27)  But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!’  (28)  In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but you yourselves cast out.
