32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away

It's going to be a little bit longer than that. Interesting conclusion though. But there is another prophecy in play that would seem to indicate that the reign of the Antichrist would happen in the 2021 to 2025 range.
Read the book of Hosea end to end and then look at verse 6-2 in light of 2nd Peter 3-8. What the Jews did in the first century was this. They triggered the curse of Malachi. According to Jesus Christ they killed Elijah the Prophet in killing John the Baptist. Triggering the curse. And if you read the book of Malachi what was supposed to happen was the Lord and his 2 messengers were to appear at the Temple. Then they were to clean up and instruct the Levites as to how the temple should have been run. Then the Lord of Hosts was to then make an appearance and the Temple was to have been like the days of Solomon.
but when Herod killed John the Baptist everything changed. He triggered a 2000 year top level Leviticus 26 curse on the Jews. That event happened sometime in the twenties. Combine that with Matthew 24 and I get a 3 year window for the start of the day of Jezreel. The thousand year reign of the saints. 2025 to 2028. It should be running by May 15 2028 and no later. Plus or minus a couple of days for the differences in calendars.
The 7 year agreement of Daniel 9 should start in the years 2018 to 2021.
Between now in 2012 to that point the preliminary events should be playing out. The Gog-Magog disaster. And I have been watching Daniel 8 and 11 carefully too. Why? Because in the fine print they say they are end time prophesies. And if you look at what they predict will happen before the signing of the 7 year agreement in verse 11-6 then you see something disturbing. The 2 prophesies predict that a country that looks Greek is attacked by the people of the middle east. With the prompting of 4 kings. The "Greece" of the prophesies counterattacks and conquers 2 of those kings/countries in the middle east. Then conquers "Persia" and then is broken into 4 states.
So far we appear to be 1/2 way through the prophecy. The US has conquered Iraq and Afghanistan. And is threatening to do a number on Iran eventually. You could say that the US is in the middle of a cold war with Iran now. So I would say to watch the prophesies of Daniel carefully. They appear to be repeating. Which they would if they were end time prophesies.

Every generation claims prophecy, the return of a prophet or some other great religious feat. Yet, year after year it's just the same thing over and over again. The only difference being, the gullibility of the next generation.
There are large numbers of people that called Hitler the Anti-Christ, along with countless other public figures that caused disruption.
Why did that not get transcribed into sacred text? Hmm.
