THE SEVENTY WEEKS of Daniel fulfilled.

The dispensationalist doctrine that the Jewish people are yet to fulfil the last week (7 years) of Daniel's prophecy of the 70 weeks Dan9:24 is incorrect. The proponents of that doctrine are missing the point that Messiah has come in fulfilment of the prophets. Isaiah59:20,21
The prophecy of the seventy weeks is an account given beforehand, of the 'second period' of the national existence of the Jewish people.
The Jews were to last as a nation only long enough to 'fulfil the scriptures', and to accomplish the purpose of God, in bringing forth the Messiah, and putting Him to death. Dan9:26
The time allotted for this according to the prophecy was 70 x7 = (490 years) (one week = 7years)
There is nothing to suggest that the prophecy did not terminate upon the seventieth week as prophesied. Dan9:24
Nowhere in the prophecy is it said that the last week (7 years) was to be postponed to some future time.
For the six things contained within the prophecy were all fulfilled by Christ. The last one (to anoint the most Holy place) being after His ascension into heaven. See:  Heb9:24
Here is listed the six things contained within the prophecy: 1. To finish the transgression.. 2. To make an end of sin.. 3. To make atonement for iniquity.. 4. To bring in everlasting righteousness.. 5. To seal up vision and prophecy.. 6. To anoint the most holy place. Dan9:24. Hebrews Chapter 9 & 10 confirms the fulfilment of these six things.
This being accomplished, God has no further use for Israel. for She (Israel) brought forth The Messiah in fulfilment of the Law & the prophets. Lk16:16
God’s dealings thenceforth were to be with another people, that “Holy Nation” 1Pet2:9 composed of all who believe the everlasting Gospel, and who receive the One who was rejected by His own Jn1:11-13

It is important to understand that this prophecy pertained to the time period of the return from the Babylonian exile of the Jews unto its terminating point being the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70.
This destruction is foretold in Dan9:26,27 "And the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and sanctuary".......Vs26, One who makes desolate Vs27 
It was Prince Titus 'the son of the Emperor Vespasian' and the Roman legions that razed Jerusalem to the ground and destroyed the Temple. This took place exactly 40 years (one generation) after the termination of the seventieth week. Jesus also had prophesied the same Mat24:2
