    I read something very interesting in the epistle from Barnabas. He writes:
    Barnabas 15:3
    Of the Sabbath He speaketh in the beginning of the creation; And
    God made the works of His hands in six days, and He ended on the
    seventh day, and rested on it, and He hallowed it.


    Barnabas 15:4
    Give heed, children, what this meaneth; He ended in six days. He
    meaneth this, that in six thousand years the Lord shall bring all
    things to an end; for the day with Him signifyeth a thousand years;
    and this He himself beareth me witness, saying; Behold, the day of
    the Lord shall be as a thousand years.
    Therefore, children, in six
    days, that is in six thousand years, everything shall come to an end.

    Barnabas 15:5
    And He rested on the seventh day. this He meaneth; when His Son
    shall come, and shall abolish the time of the Lawless One, and shall
    judge the ungodly, and shall change the sun and the moon and the
    stars, then shall he truly rest on the seventh day.
    Source: The Epistle of Barnabas (translation J.B. Lightfoot)


    The millennial kingdom that is mentioned in Revelation could represent the seventh day. And if we count the years from Adam to today, then we are currently about in the 6000 year . Thus we are just before the seventh day .
    What do you think about it?

    I don't know what to think of it? According to the Jews, we are soon going to be in the year 5780. Does that mean we have 220 years left? Isa PBUH, said that "No man will know the time".

    Steven Hawkings gave us about 100 years. There is no magic. It will happen when it does.

    If Jesus still coming back, i dont think we are supposed to know what year, so kind of pointless to try to find the year. (Nothing wrong with the OP question )

    Jesus has already returned. He's been reincarnated and he's in his late seventies. His new name is William Alan Troetschel and he will lead the "sons of darkness".

    If you are expecting a literal return of Jesus it is unlikely it will ever happen, for dead bodies have never come back to life.

    Jesus won't be coming back. Ever. Per his own statements, everyone alive when he alleged did is long gone, decayed to dust, with only some bones remaining. They were supposed to be alive when he came back.
