38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 39 This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day."
The whole purpose of Jesus Christ coming down from heaven to this earth; His reason for dying on the cross was to do the will of the Father, which is the salvation of all people. Jesus Christ will save all and lose nothing, every one of those people whom the Father draws to Jesus Christ will be saved and will be raised up at the last day.
The Bible refers to two last days separated by the thousand-year Millennial Age. There is 'the last day' for true believers, God's Elect Bride of Christ, who will be raised in the First Resurrection at the end of this present Age, at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. (John 6:44) There is also 'the last day' for the rest of humanity who will be raised in the Second Resurrection at the end of the Millennial Age to be judged on the Great White Throne Judgement Day. (John 12: 47-48)
God the Father draws and has drawn only a few, His Elect Bride, to Jesus in this present Age and previous Ages, before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. However, let us be very clear that God's ultimate purpose is to save all people without any exceptions, and Jesus Christ will draw all people to Himself in God's time and His order.
