The Last Day
Posted 24 February 2012 - 06:52 PM
Joh 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
Joh 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
Joh 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
The first five verses all deal with the resurrection of the just, and this is understood as being the ‘first resurrection’ of Revelation 20. The last verse deals with the judgment of the rejecter of Christ which will ultimately occur after the millennium and after the second resurrection. All verses speak to these events, the resurrection of the just and the judgment of the rejecter on ‘the last day’. There seems to be nothing in the language that would demand looking at ‘the last day’ of John 11:24 as the same ‘last day’ of John 12:48.

I've always wondered though, could this be a veiled reference to the "last day(millenium)" of chilliasm?
I like this question and while we are on it i'll ask another questing about the same (or similar) topic.
In Luke 23:43 Jesus says to the thief on the cross, "today you will be with me in paradise." We know that in that literal 24 hour day Jesus was not in paradise nor was the thief. Jesus was in Hades.
Anybody's opinion or expertise would be appreciated.
