21 "Not R291 everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven {will enter.} R292 22 "Many R293 will say to Me on that R294 day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' F132 23 "And R295 then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART R296 FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.' 24 "Therefore R297 everyone R298 who hears these words of Mine and acts F133 on them, may F134 be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.

Matthew 7:21-29

21 "Not everyone who keeps saying to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will get into the kingdom of heaven, but only the person who keeps doing the will of my Father in heaven. R131 22 Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, we prophesied in your name, drove out demons in your name, and performed many miracles in your name, didn't we?' R132 23 Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Get away from me, you evildoers!'" F100 R133 24 "Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on a rock. R134 25 The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, but it did not collapse because its foundation was on the rock. 26 "Everyone who hears these words of mine and doesn't obey them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and battered that house, and it collapsed, and its collapse was devastating." 28 When Jesus had finished saying all these things, F101 the crowds were utterly amazed at his teaching, R135 29 for he was teaching them like a person who had authority, and not like their scribes.
