    The covenant confirmed in Daniel 9 has to be the covenant of the 70 weeks of years decreed for Israel in the context of the chapter .... there is no other covenant described and it is all about Daniel's people, national Israel

    .... and there is no indication that this covenant is some sort of peace treaty between Israel and the nation's enemies. It is a specific time line given in conjunction with the Lord's eternal covenant with the nation of Israel

    Only the Lord can confirm this covenant by executing the coming 70th week .... thereby reaching the 6 objectives for the believing remnant of Israel who will turn to Him during His hour [time] of trial. [Daniel 9:1-27]

    Visionary prophecy must be read carefully and in this case one needs to see that there are two princes involved .... the Lord .... and the other prince .... satan's beast of Revelation 13:1 and 17:8.

    It is the Lord who was "cut off" at the end of the 69th week .... it is the other prince and His followers who will come and desecrate at the middle of the 70th week decreed. [Daniel 9:26]

    The vision then repeats this same contrast between the two princes.

    Daniel
    9:27 And he [the Lord] shall confirm the covenant with many [the believing remnant of Israel] for one week: [note the : divider in the KJV]

    .... and in the midst of the week he [the other prince] shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

    The Lord ["He"] will confirm the covenant .... the other prince cannot do this and would not because of the 6 objectives that will be met for Daniel's people, the believing remnant part of national Israel. [Daniel 9:24; Romans 11]

    Then the other prince ["he"] will cause the sacrifice oblation to cease. [Israelite worship at the base of the western wall of the temple mount ... the most holy place for Israel today] [Jeremiah 30:5-7; Daniel 8:9-12; Zechariah 14:1-5; Matthew 24:15-16]

    This other prince is the little horn of Daniel 11:36-45 and 12:7. This king of the north and his followers will invade, occupy and rule over Israel, Jerusalem, and the temple mount for 42 months before the Lord will pour out His wrath upon the desolaters. [Jeremiah 30:1-7; Ezekiel 38:11-16; Daniel 11:41; Micah 5:5; Zechariah 14:1-5; Revelation 11:2; 12:3-17; 13:5]

    None of the events of the time frame of the 70th week of 2,520 days has transpired yet and is still pending at this time. [Romans 11:25-26]

    In fact, there is a breach in the time lapse that can be found in all of the prophetic visions related to the time of the end of this present age.

    Events on the earth between the end of the 69th week [about 33 A.D.] and the beginning of the 70th [still future] are not recorded in the scope of visionary prophecy ... many significant things have come and gone over the last 2,000 years and they are simply not there.

    For example: Daniel's visions track the geopolitical phases of the Middle East through the end of the rule of Antiochus IV [11:21-35] .... and then the rest of the unfulfilled portion jumps directly to the time of the end. [Daniel 11:36-45; 12:1-12]
