Many Christians in Kenya have and are still confused about the true intentions of Huduma Number. They are still wondering whether they should register for it or not. They are still asking; ‘should we stop in our tracks because our so called pastors have said so’?
Having been raised in a Christian family and having acquired some Christian knowledge – enough to make me separate wheat from chuff – I am certain that Huduma Number is not the Satanic number 666 mentioned in the Bible.
Mark of the beast
The Bible is very clear about the Mark of the Beast. When it will occur, who will enforce it, what will happen at that time, etc etc. This Mark of the Beast is enforced somewhere halfway the seven years of Tribulation.
Daniel 9:27 says, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (KJV)
Daniel here prophesies about a 7 year period known as Daniel’s 70th week. In the midst of this week (7 years) sacrifices and oblation will cease. Then there will come the tribulations, plaques, terror, war – just but to mention a few ills that will occur – in the last half. This is when the 666 will be implemented.
Christians would have been taken up. Christians – I mean True Christians by word and deed – would already have been taken up during the rapture of the Church. These are the people who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior and live according to His will. This will be a blameless church, taken up, awaiting the great bouquet.
This therefore means that Christians will NOT be partakers of the Tribulation and consequently of the Mark of the beast.
The rapture happens first at the beginning of the Tribulation.
So the pastors and other Christian Religious leaders trying to insinuate that the current registration of Huduma Number is registration of 666 are completely wrong. It does not require rocket science to understand this simple Chronology outlined in the Bible.
It is during the time of Tribulation that the people who will still be living will be forced to receive the Mark of the Beast or else, fail to get any service.
During this time, there will arise two powerful leaders, empowered by Satan. One is a political leader that will exalt himself and blaspheme against God Almighty, (Revelation 13:1-10). He will be a leader of a future government. This is the one who is called the Antichrist.
The second one will be a religious leader. This will be the one who will force people to receive the mark of the beast in order to do any transaction (Buying and selling). (Revelation 13: 16-18)
As we speak right now, none of the above has happened. What is on course right now is the spreading of the Word of God to all the four corners of the world – Which happens before the rapture of the Church.
Some have said that these are preparations for the mark of the Beast. The Bible does not record any trials and preparations for the implementation of then Mark of the beast. This will be spontaneous. The Bible says in Romans 8:1 that “there is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus”. This means that this number cannot be effected when we have the righteous still in this world.
There is much I can write about this topic, but I hope the little information has given you insight about it. Everything in the Bible MUST happen chronologically as recorded. Our God is NOT human to tell lies.
The right Chronology is:-
- Spreading the Word of God – The word of God MUST reach everyone first.
- Rapture – Christians are taken up by Jesus. They are purposely removed from the Earth so that they do not face the tribulations.
- Tribulation – This will last 7 years. In the middle, there will be trouble that I have mentioned above. (Including then introduction of the Mark of the Beast.
- The second coming of Christ – Jesus Christ will come back with the saints to establish an Earthly kingdom that will last 1,000 years.
- Judgement – Non- Christians will be judged and the ‘guilty’ thrown into the lake of fire.
- New Heaven and the New Earth. Read Revelations 21:1-7.
Go get your Huduma Number. It is not satanic. It is not The Mark of the beast. It is not 666.
