The Coming Messiah:
This prophecy is given in response to Daniel’s prayer: “O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action! For Thine own sake, O God, do not delay, because Thy city and Thy people are called by Thy name.” Daniel is looking for a return to the land of promise and has been confessing his sin and the sin of Israel; and the prophecy looks forward to the coming of Jesus as the Messiah and the finishing of transgression, and end to sin, atonement for iniquity, the bringing in of everlasting righteousness, a sealing up of vision and prophecy, and the anointing of the most holy place. It tells of the restoration of Jerusalem and a rebuilding of the city. And then the Messiah is cut off and there is war and desolation. God takes action and his answer is the Messiah!
