HisStory FullFills prophecy
The book of Daniel was composed by the prophet of that Hebrew name in the sixth century BCE. The author places himself in the midst of the exile, during "the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim..., when Nebuchadnezzar came to Jerusalem and besieged it." (Dan 1:1) This event we know to have occurred in 605 BCE. This being the earliest chronological event in the book, it gives us a general timeframe for reference. The last chronological event written therein as history (as opposed to prophecy) is "the third year of Cyrus King of Persia," (Dan 10:1) which was 537 BCE. This, together with the first date, tells us that the book is the compilation of a lifetime of witnessed revelation, an accomplished attestation put down in writing soon after 537 BCE, and he would have been about eighty years old.
About that time from a study of Jeremiah's prophecy Daniel had calculated that the time of Israel's captivity (seventy years) was about to end (Dan.9:1-2). The term "seven" (shabua') is used 6 times in this passage, and in all 20 occurrences in the Old Testament indicates a definite period of seven. The "weeks" or plur.; 'sevens' are Shemittah (seventh years) called Sabbath Years. This was the length of the captivity determined by His people's violation of the sabbatic year (cf. 2 Chron.36:21; Jer.25:11-12). Israel had neglected precisely seventy sabbatic cycles; or their disobedience continued 490 years. The time specified by Gabriel to Daniel here is very appropriately the same. It breaks down as follows:

Seven sevens = 49 years
Sixty-two sevens = 434 years
One seven = 7 years
total Seventy sevens = 490 years

605 BCE --Jeremiah's prediction of Judah's captivity

--First captives deported to Babylon

587 BCE --God's word came to Jeremiah promising the

re-inhabiting of Jerusalem

586 BCE --Jerusalem fell, the first temple was destroyed, and most

of the remaining Jews were deported to Babylon

558 BCE --Cyrus II (the great) became king of Persia and enlarged

his kingdom to include Media (among others)

539 BCE --Cyrus' general, Gobryas, attacked the Babylonians

538 BCE --Gobryas defeats Babylon, kills Belshazzar, & becomes

king (a.k.a., Darius the Mede)

--Daniel's "Seventy Weeks" prophecy

--Cyrus' decree to end Jewish captivity

536 BCE --Foundations of the second temple were laid, thus

ending the 70 year captivity (605-536)

458 BCE --Artaxerxes' decree to rebuild temple

445 BCE --Artaxerxes' decree to rebuild Jerusalem

19 BCE --The Beginning of Herod's Great (the third) Temple at Jerusalem (the "62 weeks")

The life of Jesus (the Messiah to come).

7 BCE -- Birth in Sukkot (4 BCE Herod the Great dies)

28 CE -- Beginning of ministry (the "One week")

30 CE -- Death makes a 'Cease (Sabbath) of Sacrifice' (amid The week)

Stephen martyred end of 34 CE (close of 70 weeks)

70 CE --Jerusalem burned by the Romans not allowed to finish the Temple of Jews.

Jesus called Daniel a prophtou ("one who proclaims the utterances of God") but prophets weren't then men who simply foretold the future, but which spoke forth the very words of Gods presence. In Matthew 24:15, Jesus is discoursing what we tend to call the "Little Apocalypse." In it, He speaks of Daniel and a quote from his book. He refers to the "'abomination the causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel." Here, Jesus uses the Greek dia, along with the genitive case, which always implies personal human agency. That Daniel He referred to was an actual person named Daniel, not just the title of a book.
Daniel 11:31 refers to the altar-idol of Zeus that Antiochus Ephiphanes placed in the holy of holies of the Jerusalem temple in June, 168 B.C. Since Jesus' reference to Daniel's idol was spoken of as yet future (to Him), this cannot be His point of reference. The desolating abomination of Daniel 12:11 is the very same as that of 9:27, and in both cases the thought connects the ending of sacrifices with the imposition. It would be difficult to demonstrate any reference to 12:11 as over against 9:27; the two speak of the same. In His Olivet discourse, then, Jesus makes specific reference to Daniel's prophecy of the seventy weeks.
A comparison of the details of Daniel's seventieth week with 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation 13 demonstrates further New Testament dependence upon this passage. They have in common, among other things, the idol and the blasphemy in the temple. To the Olivet Discourse and other New Testament eschatological passages, Daniel's prophecy becomes pivotal. It provides the key and establishes the framework of further prophetic discussion. Understanding it properly is critical, then, to the proper understanding of prophecy as a whole.

There is no 7 year extention or 'gap theory' looking for a future tribulation, nor room for any 'pre-trib mid-trib post-trib' interpretation, neither basis for the "Left behind" series. Most of the beliefs held by Christianity are not truly Biblical... like YeShUaA said; "be Reconsidering, for the Reigning, of the Highest, is at Hand"
