All those who call on the Lord with faith and repentance during this age of grace will be saved from the eternal judgment to come. However, there is coming a day when God’s door will be shut, 1 at which time it will be too late. This is why God tells us to hearken to Him today. 2
Furthermore, the cry of those in Matthew 7:21 is not one of faith and repentance, but one of disagreement and rationalization. The other verses of Jeremiah 14:12, Ezekiel 8:18, and Micah 3:4 speak of punishment on earth, not necessarily eternal judgment (though much of Israel was headed for this as well), and so the comparison to verses like Romans 10:13 does not hold anyway.
