To preserve the government we must also preserve morals. Morality rests on religion; if you destroy the foundation, the superstructure must fall. When the public mind becomes vitiated and corrupt, laws are a nullity and constitutions are waste paper. Daniel Webster, 4th of July, 1800, Oration at Hanover, N.H.
It could be that all that you mentioned coming together, and your last statement seems to go along with Daniel. "even until the consummation, and that determined shall be upon the desolate."
What is "that" determined? I think it was just spoken of; "come shall destory the city, and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined."
Those who believe the 70th week continued straight after the 69th (people like us) usually identify one of the above events. However my chronological studies locate the stoning as early AD33 and Cornelius as late AD33. Since Christ death was 14th Nisan (7 April) AD30, we must add 3.5 years which brings us to the latter event.Originally Posted by RevLogos
Also there is a logical issue here. The 'weeks' were precise time periods pertaining to Israels sabbatical and jubilee system. The times of the Gentiles could not begin until the times of Jacob ended. So the 70th week had to get a full stop before the times of the Gentiles could begin. Historically, that beginning is the conversion of Cornelius.

Here's my take on Dan.9:27. Antichrist is the one who makes a covenant with Israel ( peace treaty ). He breaks it after 3 and a half years. As far as i know, we haven't come to that point.
The "he" links back to the first part of the chapter. Go beack and see how the chapter begins with Daniel discovered something in the writings of Jeremiah about a he.
he shall desolate
What does the guy in Daniel 9:27 do? - desolate
Gabriel came to explain to Daniel the Jeremiah prophecy.
So - Daniel 9:27 is about the Jeremiah prophecy Daniel supplicated over.
That is the reason that Gabriel came - to help Daniel know the timing of the completion of Jeremiah's prophecy.
Be sure to let what Gabriel told Daniel be divided up into two separate stories - look at the two determined parts.
70 weeks are determined
but - the final weeks is set in its own determined time
