[Steve Miller] In order for the statement, "5 years are given to the Detroit
Tigers to win the world series", to be true, the Tigers need to win the
world series within that 5 year time frame. Not afterward. Similarly, the 6
purposes need to be fulfilled within the 70 weeks. 

Did Christ fulfill all 6 purposes in His 1st coming? 
I do not think so, because the 70 weeks are concerning Daniel's people and
Daniel's holy city.
1. to finish the transgression - yes
2. to make an end of sins - I think not yet for Daniel's people
3. to make reconciliation for iniquity - I think not yet for Daniel's people
4. to bring in everlasting righteousness - I think not yet for Daniel's
5. to seal up the vision and prophecy - no. This will happen in Zech. 13:2-5
6. to anoint the holy of holies - no. Since it is concerning Daniel's holy
city, this must be the physical holy of holies in Jerusalem.
