Video description: Watch Amir’s message “Daniel’s 70 Weeks” on the 70 weeks vision from Daniel 9:20-27.
Let me start by saying that the historical fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9 from 27-34 AD, Messiah’s Olivet Discourse which describes events leading to the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD, and most of prophecies in Revelation during the last 1,900 years; validates the authority of Scripture and the deity of Messiah. Amir’s futuristic explanations serve to hide those proofs.
The Protestant Reformers and great theologians of the 16th-19th centuries all taught the historical fulfillment of prophecy. It’s only during the few centuries that the futuristic deceptions have taken hold as the enemy has deceived even the very elect.
The concept of a future 70th week of Daniel 9, in which a one-man antichrist appears and most of Revelation is fulfilled, is a deception from the enemy. I know that sounds crazy since most people teach these concepts, but the enemy has worked hard to mislead the end-times saints so that even the very elect are deceived. I pray that you will seek truth, not to defend a belief.
Please understand that I declare these things not because I think that I know it all, and I’m not saying that everything that Amir Tsarfati teaches is false. He seems to be very sincere in his beliefs and His love for Messiah. What I’m showing is that what he teaches about prophecy fulfillment is false, because it’s based on the futuristic model that was created by the enemy to deceive the end-times saints.
I don’t proclaim this for my sake, because this isn’t about me. You can dismiss what I’m saying and defend your beliefs, but now you’re accountable and I’ve fulfilled my role as the watchman blowing the trumpet.
In this video, Amir Tsarfati says that the starting pointing was in 445 BC from the command of Persian King Artaxerxes.
He says that it’s a 490 year prophecy, which is correct as it points to seventy sevens (weeks). But then to make his starting year work, he says that the Jews calendar was only 360 days per year. That is ridiculous!
When Daniel wrote down the vision, the yearly cycle was 365.25 days. The Scriptural calendar is based on the sun and moon, and it works to keep the feast days in their proper time frame. Otherwise, if the Jews actually observed a 360-day year, then it would move the feast days backwards by five days per year and the spring feasts would end up in winter.
Daniel was simply saying that 69 weeks, 483 years, would pass and then Messiah would appear in the 70th week to carry out His ministry and to confirm the everlasting covenant that was previously mentioned in Daniel 9:4.
The 445 BC command from Artaxerxes was to restart the building of Jerusalem, as it had been stopped. Artaxerxes issued the starting command in 457 BC, which places the 70th week as taking place from 27-34 AD. And Messiah died in the middle of the 70th week, in 31 AD.
Amir proclaimed that Messiah appeared after the 69 week and then was killed, but that’s a false narrative as the prophecy is pointing to when Messiah would carry out His multiyear ministry, which started when He proclaimed the passage in Isaiah before the Jewish leaders and then was baptized by John the Baptist.
Amir Tsarfati says that the Father was giving Daniel a bigger picture.
This is false, as Daniel was only praying about what would happen to the Jews who were due to be released after the 70 years of captivity in Babylon.
He was told that the Jews would be empowered to rebuild Jerusalem and the temple, to prepare the way for their promised Messiah who would appear in the final week of seven years.
It ridiculous to say that Daniel was told both about Messiah and the antichrist in the four verses of Daniel 9:24-27!
Amir Tsarfati says that Daniel divided the prophecy.
Daniel did no such thing! He gave the timeline of seven weeks, sixty-two weeks and then the final week of the 70th week, to be fulfilled in 70 consecutive weeks. Otherwise it makes no sense for the Father to declare that ‘seventy weeks have been determined.’
Amir inserts the ‘church era‘ in between the 69th and 70th week, which is absurd! The Ekklesia of Messiah is made up of Jews and Gentiles, so there is no church era. 3,000 Jews from other countries believed in Messiah on the day of Pentecost and no doubt they returned home and preached the Gospel to other Jews. Acts tells us that more Jewish believers were added every day.
Amir is creating a dispensational narrative, but that is a deception. The Ekklesia of the Father has always been made up of the remnant of those who believe by faith, while the majority follow after pagan ways. This took place with the Israelites, the Jews of Messiah’s day and people today.
Amir Tsarfati says that the Holy Spirit will be removed as part of 2 Thessalonians 2, as he says that it is the restrainer.
This is a false narrative, as Amir assigns most prophecy to the end times. But the Apostle Paul was pointing to the last Western Roman Emperor being removed from power in 476 AD, as part of the fourth trumpet judgment, as they restrained the antichrist beast Popes from taking power over the Roman beast kingdom.
Amir Tsarfati says that Revelation will be fulfilled during the seven years of the futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9.
This is a false narrative that was created by the Jesuits of Rome, to counter the Reformers, as they all proclaimed that 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 ‘antichrist beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome.
To deflect blame away from the Popes, they had a Jesuit priest create the scenario of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9, in which the one-man antichrist appears and most of Revelation is fulfilled.
This is why it’s so important to understand the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel!
Amir Tsarfati says that the second part of Daniel 9:24 is fulfilled in the end times.
That is false, as Messiah fulfilled all six things that are listed in Daniel 9:24
Amir Tsarfati cites Romans to says ‘all Israel will be saved.’
This is more of his false dispensational teaching! The apostle Paul told us in Romans that a true Israelite is not one of flesh, but of spirit. It is both Jews and Gentiles who have a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son.
Paul wrote Romans when the temple in Jerusalem was still standing. But Messiah foretold in His Olivet Discourse that judgment was coming upon the Jewish leaders who continued in their rebellion against the Heavenly Father and who rejected Messiah and delivered Him up to be killed.
His saints, the true Israelites, saw the abomination of desolation take place in 66 AD, when Cestius and his army surrounded the temple (read Luke 21:20-21). They were ready to take the city captive, but then they left for no explained reason.
Messiah’s saints heeded the sign and took opportunity to flee to the mountains just as Messiah told them. Then three strong divisions of the Roman army came against Judea during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD, which led to 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, evisceration, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.
All Israel, the followers of Messiah, were saved from being desolated by the Roman army. Jewish historian Josephus does not document any of Messiah’s saints as being killed. HalleluYah!
All of the things that Messiah described from Matthew 23:36 to Matthew 24:33 were fulfilled by 70 AD when the Romans desolated Jerusalem, the temple, and the Jewish nation. The enemy has deceived people about the symbolism of the sun, moon, and stars being darkened; Messiah coming in power and glory; and the elect being gathered. But the Bible gives the proper definitions for the symbols.
We need to take Messiah at His Word and look at how the things that He described were about the Jewish nation, for their punishment of continuing their rebellion against the Father, for delivering Messiah up to be killed, and for persecuting His disciples.
The Olivet Discourse is directed related to the 70th Week of Daniel 9, which says that the city and temple will be desolated because of the abominations of the Jews.
If you’re seeking for truth, and not to defend a belief, this book will prove out the fulfillment of Messiah’s Olivet Discourse. It will help you see that it’s not about the end times so that you’re not misled about the fulfillment of Revelation, as we await Messiah’s promised return.
Amir Tsarfati Behold Israel is misleading people with false prophecy fulfillment explanations.
The 70th week of Daniel 9 is about Messiah, not the antichrist. Messiah carried out His multi-year ministry during the 70th week and He died in the middle of the week to confirm the everlasting covenant (which was mentioned in Daniel 9:4) to atone for our sins as the Spotless Lamb, which ended the need for temple sacrifices.
A 70-week prophecy from the Heavenly Father is fulfilled in 70 consecutive weeks, otherwise is makes no sense to say ’70 weeks are determined.’ It’s not about the end times or the antichrist, that is a deception from the enemy to mislead the end-times saints. This is extremely important to understand.
There are two key reasons to read this book. First, the 70th week of Daniel is the only prophecy in the Bible that foretold exactly when Messiah would start His ministry and when He would die for our sins.
When you understand the fulfillment, you have tangible proof to give to the world, that the Bible is true and that Messiah is deity.
The second reason is that the popular explanations for the fulfillment of Revelation are based on the concept of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel, an end-times seven-year tribulation period.
When you understand that the 70th week of Daniel 9 foretold the exact time that Messiah would carry out His ministry and die for our sins; then you know that it’s not about the antichrist.
Regarding the ‘covenant’ of Daniel 9:27, it’s the same covenant that Daniel just mentioned in Daniel 9:4, which already existed. It is the everlasting covenant that was made to Abraham, which Messiah came to ‘confirm’ with His blood as the Passover Lamb, which paid the price for our sins and ended the need for temple animal sacrifices.
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.
