Daniel 12:11, like Rev 11:2, says that the 1260/1290 "days" begin with the abomination of desolation. The abomination of desolation was in 70 AD. Wyckliffe was born c 1330 AD and began his public ministry in 1360 AD. Is that an accident? I do not think so.
As for as the date of the beginning of the "millennium", it is a very speculative matter. But for reasons I explain in "Let My People Go" (at www.puritans.net) , my best **guess** is 2033 AD. But before that, my guess is that the USA will fall as the world's superpower and be replaced by the Romish beast.
