“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
King James Version (KJV)

I think jesus is saying if u dont ask him for forgivness and do repent he will not know u, THIS IS WHY WE GOTTA ASK HIM INTO OUR HEART. AM I RIGHT? Remember john 3:16

I believe it means exactly what it states, People who believe they are saved because they want to be saved but they are unwilling to REPENT, therefore they are NEVER given power by God to sanctification, justification and hence no glorification, they love the world. Not God creator of the world.

No, he wasn 't talking about Muslims, considering the religion of Islam was not yet established. He was talking about those who claim or even believe they act on behalf of the Lord but by their actions do the opposite. Matthew speaks of those who will ask God to recognize the good works they have done in his name, but they are told to depart because they work iniquity. Iniquity means evil, wickedness. One may believe one is doing His work, but if you spread hatred and anger and sow dissension, you are not. There are countless examples of people who believe they act in God 's name but whose actions are inconsistent with the Gospel. By their fruits shall ye know them.

In other words, to hear Him say to us on "that day " "Well done thy good and faithful servant. " I has to do the will of our Father 100 ? This leaves no room for error, and it scares me. I have been reading and trying to live it, but, I 'm still weak, I 'm human. I am not wanting to hear Him tell me to depart from me, I never knew you " Of course, I, like most want to hear Him say, "well done, thy good and faithful servant. " I guess He wants us to continue striving for the mark, continuing to shed of sin the crud of this world and to put on our "New man. "
