Were the churches of the New Testament and following centuries duly
constituted? Yes, by Jesus and the apostles. Were they the visible
church? Yes. Were they sound? Some were sounder than others,
though with many problems we shouldn't imitate such as drunkenness at
the Lord's table (1 Cor 11:21), failure to discipline gross incest (1
Cor 5:1), schisms (1 Cor 3:3), controversies concerning ritual
obervance of the Mosaic law (Acts 15:1) and Christ's human nature (1
John 2:22), etc.
I'm saying, with the Westminster Confession chap. 25, that every
church of every age contains a mixture of truth and error, and that
we ought to follow the example of saints who came before us *only* as
they followed Christ in his word.

Blessings in Christ,
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.
