Daniel 9:26[NRSV] 26 After the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing, and the troops of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its[a] end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.

Is it possible, that the word (יִכָּרֵ֥ת kârath) cut off in Daniel 9:26 means "the messiah didn't die, instead he ascended into heaven alive "? if not why not?

English Standard Version Daniel 9:26

And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off [H3773] and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.

Exodus 12:19

Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off [H3773] from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a sojourner, or one that is born in the land.

H3773 by itself in the dictionary does not necessarily mean killing or death.
