moment() represents the current time.  I updated the example here:

this did it, thanks, Bill

var a = moment();
var b = moment('30/09/2018', 'DD/MM/YYYY');
var days = b.diff(a, 'days');
var weeks = b.diff(a, 'weeks');
document.getElementById("days").innerHTML = days
document.getElementById("weeks").innerHTML = weeks

Wow what a nice library that is huh!
