Last Days

John 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.
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.
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.
54  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 11:24  Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. (Btw, how did Martha know this if it wasn't from the Old Testament? And whatever is in the Old Testament is fulfilled.)

John 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.

If these are not talking about the same last day(s) as the Old Testament, then are there TWO last days? That doesn't make sense to me.

And w e have:

Hebrews 1:2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

We say that Jesus spoke to us and now we can’t have any more prophets. And yet we have:

In Hebrews 9:26b it says. “…But now he has appeared
once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by
sacrifice of himself
.”

Has Christ not appeared to do away with sin? Are we still waiting for a Savior?

And we have:

Micah 4:1  ¶But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.

Acts 2:17  And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

So we know the church was established in the last days. And we know that in the last days there would be prophecies. But then we say that in the last days JESUS is the one speaking to us and it is still going on although the prophecies are NOT going on. How can that be? If it’s still the last days, we should still be prophesying. Why aren’t we?
