If you listen to Pastor MacKenzie’s preachings, through the viral videos online, He used to preach using the , Apocalyptic Books. The message from this books are the ones that he used to pass to his followers. This are books that mostly talk about eschatology and end times.


Apocalyptic books are A product of the Judeo-Christian tradition, apocalyptic literature is characteristically pseudonymous; it takes narrative form, employs esoteric language, expresses a pessimistic view of the present, and treats the final events as imminent.

In addition to Daniel and Revelation, prominent literary apocalypses include 1 Enoch, 2 and 3 Baruch, 4 Ezra, the Apocalypse of Abraham, the Shepherd of Hermas, and the Apocalypse of Peter.

In this case, Mackenzie used to localize the scriptures from this books . For example in the book of revelation ; Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.” Revelation 13:18 states that if one is wise and has an understanding to count the number of the beast, which is also the number of a man, the number comes to 666.

The book highlights on end times and the number of the beast is also mentioned there. So Mackenzie decided to localize this by referring to Huduma Number as the mark of the beast. In revelation it is said that people will be forced to have that mark , if you don’t have it you won’t be able to buy or sell.

We saw the government of Kenya forcing people to take the Huduma Number, and there were alot of threats , which so people being forced to go and register to it. This was in line with Mackenzie’s preaching. And if believers see something that their preacher has said happening, then they will just start following anything they tell them.

That was just an example on how the pastor used to localize apocalyptic books to win the hearts and minds of his followers and make them believe that indeed the world is coming to an end.

The other way that Mackenzie used to brainwash his followers, is by limiting them access to knowledge , this is by advising them to quit schools and focus on church. Knowledge gained from school is very important and helpful.

once one is limited access to knowledge, then it is easy to convince them, because they will be relying on your knowledge to make decisions. Mackenzie did this perfectly and made sure a good number of his followers aren’t well knowledgeable, children were also advised to quit schools and concentrate on church.

Mackenzie also made his followers to believe that his church was the best, and he somehow used to fight other churches, and made followers of his church believe that they were on the right track and the only way to heaven was through him and his church.

He advised them to isolate themselves, leave material things, which is also in the bible, where Jesus says: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 19:24). This means it is impossible for a rich man to go to heaven by the same token that it is impossible for a camel to enter the eye of a needle.

In this case , his followers developed a mindset of hating people who were against them, or fighting their beliefs. They went on sold properties, because material things aren’t required in heaven, and the money they used to bring it to the church.

Mackenzie had total control of their mind, and made them priotize fasting, and unlike in the Bible where Jesus fasted for 40 days and nights, Mackenzie advised them to fast till death, so that they can go to heaven . That is exactly what they used to do .

A good number of pastors in Kenya are using this tricks, they only use Apocalyptic books in there preachings and localize them. It is important to create a personal relationship with God and read scriptures very well.

Just a reminder escatology is in the bible , and it is something that requires a deeper understanding. For the past 20 years there have been several prophets who have been claiming the world is coming to an end and this hasn’t happened, so please be careful.
