worship we find recorded and exemplified in the Apostolic era. It simply
outlines and applies that model. That is one objection I have to those who
speak of the Westminster Stds marking some highest attainment. The best they
can do is describe and apply what had been established centuries earlier.
So the true Apostolic church of 33-70 AD is the model.

- 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. WyckliffeMessage 39 of 39 , Jul 3, 2004View Source
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.
