Here’s the video description: Daniel’s 70-week prophecy found in Daniel 9:24-27 is both one of the most difficult, yet exciting prophecies about the Messiah found anywhere in scripture. I have personally spent hours of time studying this amazing prophecy! The more I dig into it, the more fascinated I am about how a Divine Author, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, inspired this amazing and extremely detailed and accurate prophecy.
Before I begin my review of Allen Parr’s explanations, let me declare that I do these type of reviews, not just to expose false teachers; but to show what they teach, which you may have also been taught, so that you can see the truth and the deception.
These reviews serve as an open rebuttal of their explanations. It’s not about me, it’s about the truth of prophecy fulfillment which reveals the glory of our beloved Messiah!
Allen Parr of THE BEAT believes that the 70 weeks of Daniel 9 is the most fantastic, most amazing and most difficult prophecy that is found in the entire Bible.
Indeed, it is fantastic and amazing, as it foretold exactly when the promised Messiah would appear to carry out His multiyear ministry, in 27 AD; and when He would die for our sins, in the middle of the seven years of the 70th week, in 31 AD.
Allen Parr understands a lot about the 70 weeks of Daniel 9 prophecy, but somehow he still inserts a 1996-year time gap in between the 69th and 70th weeks, which makes no sense as it’s a 490-year prophecy.
He provides some great information in the video, but then he only adds confusion about the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9.
I prove out how the 70th week was fulfilled after the 69th week, in The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Decoded videos, summary PDF, free book PDF and printed book, which you can access @ www.70thweekofdaniel.com
Allen Parr of THE BEAT says that the six things in Daniel 9:24 have not been fulfilled because the Jews rejected Messiah.
He says that since there is no everlasting righteousness, then the prophecy has not been completely fulfilled.
Messiah’s death on the cross atones for all of our sins, which imputes His everlasting righteousness on the Jews and gentiles who believe by faith.
Messiah proclaimed that the law and the prophets point to Him.
All six things listed in Daniel 9:24 were fulfilled by the Jews and Messiah in the 70th week. Read Daniel 9:24 Fulfillment
Allen Parr of THE BEAT says that 69 sets of seven will pass from the time of the command is given to rebuild Jerusalem until a ruler – the Anointed One – comes.
It’s declaring that the Anointed One, Messiah, appears after the 69 weeks are complete. And what is after the 69th week?
The 70th week, so it makes no sense to assign the 70th week to the end times.
Allen Parr of THE BEAT says that 27 AD is the year that most scholars believe Jesus was tempted and chose His disciples and therefore began His public ministry.
He’s showing that 69 weeks, 483 years, after the 457 BC decree to start the prophecy, that Messiah started His multiyear ministry. I agree with that explanation.
So how does Alan Parr proclaim that the 70th week of Daniel 9 has not been fulfilled, when he teaches that Messiah came to carry out His ministry after the 69 weeks are complete?
Allen Parr of THE BEAT cites Daniel 9:26 to say that the prophecy does not tell us when Messiah would die.
It’s true that Daniel 9:26 does not define when Messiah dies, it only proclaims that Messiah appears after the 69 weeks are complete, meaning in the 70th week.
But Daniel 9:27 tells us exactly when Messiah dies, as it declares that the need for temple sacrifices ended when He confirmed the everlasting covenant that Daniel referred to in Daniel 9:27.
Putting the timeline together, Messiah started His multiyear ministry in 27 AD. then after 3 1/2 years Messiah died on Passover in 31 AD, in the middle of the 70th week.
How does Alan Parr miss this fulfillment, since his own timeline projects Messiah carrying out His ministry and dying after the 69 weeks are fulfilled, when means in the 70th week?
Allen Parr of THE BEAT related Daniel 9:26, which declares that Jerusalem and temple will be destroyed, to Messiah’s declaration in Matthew 24:1-2.
That is a great connection! Indeed, the 70th week of Daniel 9 prophecy is directly related to Messiah’s Olivet Discourse.
In Matthew 23, Messiah rebuked the Jewish leaders who continued in their rebellion against the Heavenly Father and sought to kill Him. Messiah declared that judgment would come upon them in that generation.
All of the things that Messiah described in His Olivet Discourse were fulfilled in that generation of wicked Jews who delivered Him up to be killed. Read The Olivet Discourse Deception
Allen Parr of THE BEAT says that the people of the prince to come is the Romans.
In the video, Alan declares that the people in the 70 weeks of Daniel 9 prophecy are the Jews. So how is he assigning the people in Daniel 9:26 to the Romans?
The people are the Jews, which is declared in Daniel 9:24.
The people of the prince are the Jews, as Messiah is of the tribe of Judah.
The people of the prince are the Jews whose wicked actions caused judgment to come upon the Jewish nation. Messiah’s rebuke of the Jewish leaders in Matthew 23 shows this direct connection.
Yes, the Romans who were used to carry out the judgment, but Daniel 9:26 is proclaiming that it is the Jews who cause their city of Jerusalem and their temple to be destroyed.
Allen Parr of THE BEAT says that the prince who is to come must be someone who emerges from the Roman Empire.
This is a false association! Daniel 9:25 points to the highlight of the 70 weeks of Daniel 9 prophecy, that Messiah the Prince would come after 69 weeks are complete.
Messiah is the prince to come. The Jews are the people of Messiah the prince.
Allen Parr points to Messiah coming after the 69th week, to start His ministry and then die 3 1/2 years later; yet somehow he misses that Messiah is the prince to come.
It’s absurd to make the narrative of Daniel 9:26 and 27 to be both about Messiah the prince coming to carry out His ministry and die for our sins, and that it’s also about Messiah’s enemy the antichrist.
Read Daniel 9 and you see that Daniel prayed about what would happen to the Jews after they were released from captivity. He was not praying about the end times or the antichrist, and it’s absurd to insert that narrative into this prophecy!
Allen Parr of THE BEAT teaches that Daniel 7 says that the antichrist will rise from the Roman Empire
Indeed it does and it’s been fulfilled by the popes of Rome who rose to power out of the ten kingdoms of the fallen Western Roman Empire. Three kingdoms would not bow to pope’s authority, so he caused them to be plucked out, removed from power.
The little horn of Daniel 7 is not about an end-times one-man antichrist as Allen Parr teaches. Read The Little Horn Of Daniel 7 Rose Up
Allen Parr of THE BEAT asks why did Daniel introduce a GAP between the 69th week and the 70th week?
He is making a false association, as the text of Daniel 9 does not declare that there is a time gap. That’s a manmade construct which was created by the enemy to deflect blame away from the popes of Rome.
The Protestant Reformers all declared that the office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, fulfill Bible prophecy as the ‘little horn’ of Daniel 7, the ‘son of perdition’ of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the ‘beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome.
To counter this, the pope empowered the Jesuits to counter the reformation. Part of that plan was to create false, futuristic explanations of the 70th week of Daniel and Revelation, which seem to point to a one-man antichrist in the end times; which serves to deflect blame away from the popes of Rome.
Sadly, during the last century, the Jesuits deceptions has misled most people.
Allen Parr of THE BEAT points to a dispensational church age.
He twists the words in Ephesians 3:4-6,9 to say that there’s a mystery that was hidden from the old testament writers, which points to a gentile dispensation period in the middle of the 69th and 70th week of Daniel, and then God will deal with the Jews during the supposed 7-year tribulation period.
Scripture simply does not declare dispensational periods for the gentiles. It proclaims that after the 70 weeks of Daniel 9 prophecy was fulfilled, when the Gospel was proclaimed to the Jews, then it was also proclaimed to the gentiles.
3,000 Jews believed in Messiah on the day of Pentecost and more were added daily. Messiah’s Ekklesia, His Church, was built with many believing Jews.
The Apostle Paul declares that the kingdom is made up of believing Jews and gentiles, so there is no separate dispensation period for Jews or gentiles. Read Messiah’s Kingdom
Allen Parr of THE BEAT cites 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 to point to an end-times son of perdition, who will enter a rebuilt Jewish temple and proclaim to be God.
The temple that the Apostle Paul is pointing to in 2 Thessalonians 2 is not a physical temple. He wrote the letter when the second temple was standing.
Paul is proclaiming that the man of sin would sit in the temple, meaning that he would proclaim to be leader in Messiah’s Church, the temple in which the Heavenly Father dwells; as Messiah is the cornerstone, the disciples the foundation and the saints the stones which make up the walls.
The popes of Rome proclaim to lead Messiah’s Church, thus they sit in the temple. They have already proclaimed to be God, to forgive sins and provide salvation, which is blasphemy. Read The Son Of Perdition Of 2 Thessalonians 2
Allen Parr of THE BEAT says that there’s no record of Jesus making a 7-year covenant with His people.
This is a false association, as Daniel is not proclaiming that the covenant is for seven years. It’s declaring that Messiah the Prince confirms the covenant in the seven years of the 70th week.
And Daniel 9:27 tells us when that took place, in the middle of the seven years, as Messiah’s death ended the need for temple animal sacrifices.
The unbelieving Jews still made sacrifices, but Daniel is proclaiming the message of Isaiah 53 which declares that Messiah’s blood sacrifice paid the price for the transgressions of believing Jews and gentiles.
Alan Parr’s graphic shows that this took place. It shows Messiah starting His ministry in 27 AD, after the 69 weeks were fulfilled. It shows that Messiah died in 31 AD, in the middle of the seven years of the 70th week.
But somehow Alan Parr misapplies the prophecy to make it about an end-times one-man antichrist making an Israel peace agreement. Read The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Covenant
Allen Parr of THE BEAT says that 49 years + 434 years + 7 years = 490 years.
But somehow he inserts at 1996-year time gap into a 490-year prophecy!
It’s absurd to proclaim that the Heavenly Father decreed a 70-week prophecy that is not fulfilled in 70 consecutive weeks.
It’s like telling someone that you will give them a million dollars after 69 weeks, but then when the 70th week arises and they ask for the money, you tell them that there’s a 1996-week time gap in between the 69th and 70th week.
It makes the time declaration nonsensical and meaningless.
This whole narrative from Allen Parr is fatally flawed, as it’s all based on a futuristic 70th week of Daniel, and a futuristic fulfillment of most of the prophecies in Revelation.
THE BEAT by Allen Parr has 982K YouTube subscribers, so he’s misleading a lot of people.
We’ll all stand before our Righteous Judge to account for what we believe and teach about the most important prophecy in the Bible. I pray that you will read the explanations in this book about the 70th week of Daniel, compare it to Scripture, and discern it for yourself.
