date2 = new Date( "Jan 1, 2018 08:15:10" );
document.write("<br>"+date2);

var res = Math.abs(date1 - date2) / 1000;

// get total days between two dates
var days = Math.floor(res / 86400);
document.write("<br>Difference (Days): "+days);

// get hours
var hours = Math.floor(res / 3600) % 24;
document.write("<br>Difference (Hours): "+hours);

// get minutes
var minutes = Math.floor(res / 60) % 60;
document.write("<br>Difference (Minutes): "+minutes);

// get seconds
var seconds = res % 60;
document.write("<br>Difference (Seconds): "+seconds);
</script>
</body>
</html>
