In Daniel 9:24-27, the angel Gabriel told the prophet Daniel:
[24] "Seventy weeks (literally seventy sevens of years or 490 years) are determined upon thy people (Israel) and upon thy holy city (Jerusalem)....
[25] Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem (Artaxerxes provided Nehemiah with letters and a military escort to go rebuild Jerusalem in 445 B.C. - See Neh. 2:1-20) unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks (seven sevens or 49 years to rebuild), and threescore and two weeks (sixty-two sevens or 434 years from the time the building will be finished until Israel's Messianic King will triumphantly enter Jerusalem - See Mt. 21:1-11; Mk. 11:1-10; Lk. 19:29-44; Jn. 12:12-19): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 
[26] And after threescore and two weeks (the 434 years) shall Messiah be cut off (killed), but not for Himself (He will not die for His own sins because He will be sinless - See 2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 4:15): and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary (a future false messiah will be from the area ruled by Rome, as the Romans will destroy the temple and Jerusalem in A.D. 70); and the end thereof shall be with a flood (an army of 200,000,000 from the nations of the east, will come as a "flood" - See Rev. 9:16), and unto the end of the war desolations are determined (See Rev. 19:11-21).

[27] And he (the false messiah / Antichrist - See Mt. 24:1-29; 1 Jn. 2:18; Rev. 13:1-10) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (Daniel's 70th week of years; The Time of Jacob's Trouble; and the Tribulation - See Jer. 30:7; Mt. 24:29): and in the midst of the week [this is how we know "a week" is seven years:  "the midst" of seven years is 3 1/2 years - See clear evidence of the exact amount of time:  "time, times, and half a time" (Dan. 7:25; 12:7; Rev. 12:14); "forty-two months" (Rev. 11:2; 13:5); "a thousand two hundred and threescore days" (Rev. 11:3; 12:6)] he (the Antichrist, a.k.a. the beast of Rev. 13:1-10) shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate ("the abomination of desolations" - See Dan. 11:31; 12:11; Mt. 24:15; Mk. 13:14; Rev. 13:1-8), even until the consummation [only time the Hebrew כָּלָה (kalah) is translated as such; the word means "the full end or completion"] and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
