"OK Navi, your points varied, here are my thoughts"

Please don't ascribe a personal slight to the lack of a quick response. You said yourself that your format may not be the best sending it from your phone, and it wasn't.
I knew when I responded, I would try to detail it.
Your persistency is to be admired, reminds me of my Lord's instructions regarding persistency.  
You say, -I am willing to entertain the notion that God will fulfill prophecy as He pleases, not just as I in my finite mind can understand it.
I say, that He definetly means for students of His Word to have the understanding, not general, but detailed-
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The verse before it is a warning- 
2 Timothy 2:14
Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
So we are to choose words that help change hearts.
You say, -when speaking of the great tribulation, where in the Bible does it say it MUST be 7 years long?  We have our day counts from Daniel and overlay with our human intellegence and think that we have it all sorted out- maybe so, maybe not-
One thing that Mr.Dewey Bruton of Daniels Timeline presents is the prophetic significance of the Lord's Feasts, when they fall on the calendars. They are the Lord's for a prophetic reason, and fit the exact day counts given in God's Word. You should watch his teaching, if you haven't already. 
Daniel 9:27

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease

CONFIRM. 1: to give approval to 2: to make firm or firmer 3:to strengthen, to acknowledge.

The AntiMessiah doesn't come up with his own plan, he strengthens or ratifies something that is currently not in use, but is in existence.  That's why confirm is used to specify it.

And I've stated it is the UFM- the Union for the Mediterranean.  The Prophet Daniel says it's confirmed with the many.

The UFM is all muslim, except for one tiny state by the name of Israel, that just happens to be Jewish.

Why does it come into play now?

The World as we know it today, is in need of extra protection for Diplomatic Posts, and Energy Facilities as a result of the arab-perdition that is still strong, and even stronger after a Temple Mount earthquake, and bombing of Bushehr.  Confirming the UFM(Middle East, North African platform), is the basis to restore order amidst chaos for those resources that are badly needed.

Now the so-called palestinians have joined in the fray.

The exact list of Psalm 83 participants.

You say- Where in the Bible does it say that the Abomination of Desolation and the causing of the daily sacrifice ceasing are the same thing on the same day or could be different events on different days?  We often have a lot of pre-conceived notions that may or may not be true. 

Bruton describes the Altar shutdown sequence.

Watch DANIEL'S TIMELINE Presentation - - - on line


They are all lined up for Psalm 83, & right behind it Ezekiel 38.

Then Israelis confirm the UFM with the EU's HRH P.Charles, the prince who is to come.

The UN, EU armed forces force 1/3 of covenant keeping Israelis to flee to Petra for the 3&1/2 year count.

Isaac said to Esau: By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother; and it shall come to pass, when thou shalt have the dominion, that you shall break his yoke from your neck (Gen. 27:40). 

Esau was called “Edom” and Jacob “Israel.”

The time of Jacob's trouble/the Edomites dominion is fast approaching.

do·min·ion: rule; control; domination

The remnant of Israel flees to Petra @ Mid-Point 

Netanyhu doesn't get any coalition government together as required, before War w/the muslims.

He goes on to fulfill Daniel chapter 11, just like I stated.

No coalition for Netanyahu, and no congressional backing for Obama.

We are now in Apostasy, Anarchy, War engulfing times
