actions which go on in individual local churches that are part of the
presbyterian body. For example, as constituted, the Apostolic church did not
allow fornicators to partake of the Lord's Table, even though some particular
local churches in the Apostolic era, related to the Apostolic church by
presbyterian ties, may have erringly allowed it for a season.
The Apostolic church was neither episcopal nor congregationalist (eg, the office
of archbishop was not one of the ordinary offices of the Apostolic church).
In constitution, no church in human history before Christ's return will ever be
superior to the Apostolic church. The goal is to match the constitution of the
Apostolic church, which is layed out in scripture.

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.
