Exactly brother!  You are one of the first people I have read who sees things the way I do concerning the covenant that will be confirmed.
Prophecy teachers for years have taught that the covenant is a peace treaty, but I believe it is the Abrahamic Covenant that will be "confirmed". 
In either the Psalms 83 war or the Gog/Magog battle, Israel will become viewed as being so powerful that the world will have to give her everything she wants, including all of the land that God promised Abraham.  Thus the anti christ will "confirm" this covenant and this will buy the world time to go back and re-group and come back against Israel at mid trib.
After the confirmation Israel can begin their temple worship, probably in a tabernacle like they had in the wilderness that can be set up in just a few days, then re-build the temple during the first half of the tribulation in time for the A/C to desecrate it at mid trib and begin the great tribulation.
