9. Well, Jesus said before some of his contemporaries died.

17. 1st century christians: right now.

By the 4th century there was a whole fat and juicy layer of steaming bulkshit added on to make the imminent end date ambiguous.

3. Not really. Muslims believe that too.

It's just more fun to pick on Christians.

18. Or maybe Apocalyptic Muslims aren't currently occupying positions of power in my government.

Who knows? The important part is you found a way to be in the majority and still feel victimized. Good for you.

6. Well to be fair the bad parts will only happen to the heathens, apostates and infidels.

Don't the righteous get to sit at the right hand of God and watch the suffering?

7. With the 6th mass extinction coming, now is a good time to start a new religion

The good news is that you live the life of a revered prophet. The bad news is that there will be no future generations to sing your praises.

20. If by "soon" you mean within the prophet's lifetime

 

Then it's the only one I can think of. I don't think others gave a timetable, just giving certain vaugue signs to look out for.
