How to understand the definition of Last Day?

Please help to understand the definition of Last Day at https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/last_day. Is the definition describing, how the same meaning of Last Day expressed in different forms? What are the sentences at the beginning of a description like "With the. The day of the Last Judgement, the end of the world.", and how is whatever expressed by "With the" expressed within "The day of the Last Judgement, the end of the world."
Please explain the other four statements also

  • @varuna, the definitions are for five grammatically different phrases:
    1. the Last Day
    2. the last days
    3. X's last day
    4. the last days of X
    5. last day

    All of these have special meanings — quite different from a phrase like the last day of November.
