THE GREAT HOSANNA

A call to God's people in the days of the Great Reset


"We beseech you, Lord: save us!"

Psalm 118:25

 

To all of God's people around the world,

A well-known song that played on all radio stations a few decades ago goes like this:

I aint gonna live anymore believing some of the lies while all of the signs are deceiving…

Such words seem to have been specially written for our day, in which, amid great signs of a monumental hoax perpetrated in the name of a global pandemic, large masses of the Western world seem to want to choose which lies to believe and which not to. And this does not happen only with those who have long since distanced themselves from God for having succumbed to the propaganda against Jesus Christ —who is the true God— [1] carried out by the same people who now administer this lie, but even with many who still consider themselves as part of God's people.

How did it get to this point? How can those who still consider themselves God's people believe that they can choose between one lie and another and emerge unharmed from such an attitude? The answer to this question is complex, involving almost two thousand years of history. Suffice it, in any case, to those who honestly wish to find it, to begin by saying that, since the days of Moses, God had already very clearly warned his people that as a consequence of their disobedience and iniquity he himself would bring upon them evil in the last days. [2]

If anyone wanted to have a more precise and detailed idea of what Moses was referring to when he spoke of the evil that God would bring upon his own people in response to centuries and centuries of disobedience and iniquity, they would only have to take a look at chapter 28 of the book of Deuteronomy. And whoever did so, could also understand why in our day much of God's people succumb to the lies of those who hate the Lord Jesus Christ. They would discover, in other words, that it is the Lord himself who has caused in all of them enough madness, blindness and mental numbness [3] as to believe that, in effect, one can choose between one lie and another as someone who chooses between various products in a supermarket shelf...

But it is precisely here that many, many Christians today will voice their first objection. It so happens that throughout their lives they have been taught that such a thing is not possible. They will give, then, a series of reasons to give effect to this objection. They will say that those words in the book of Deuteronomy were directed to ancient Israel, ignoring that ancient Israel is an example of the Church of the Christ, [4] and therefore this is the Israel of the true God, [5] which is Jesus Christ. Or else they will say that the “God of the Old Testament” (I have seen and heard how they express themselves in such terms!) Was certainly a very severe God, but instead Jesus Christ is all love, ignoring the fact that the Lord Jesus Christ claimed to be one with the Father, [6] and also that he himself, on another occasion, said that only God is good. [7]

But who are the ones who have taught so many Christians to believe that the Scriptures contradict themselves if not their own leaders and teachers? It is them who, for centuries and centuries, have created divisions and more divisions in the body of the Christ, magnifying some portions of Scripture to the heavens and minimizing some others to the dust of the earth. And if such a thing happened in the very days of the Lord’s apostles, [8] what could have been expected of the centuries following their deaths?

This state of affairs in which Christians find themselves today in every denomination and sect —denominations and sects that today, after almost two thousand years, already number in the tens of thousands!— is the reason why the Lord Jesus Christ told his disciples that the good news of God’s kingdom were to be announced again in the whole world for a witness to all nations before the end of this age came. [9] And it is that, as the Lord implied on that same occasion, the proliferation of iniquity for so many centuries would bring as a consequence the decline of the love of many within his own people. [10]

And what exactly is this iniquity of which the Lord spoke, if not the anomie in which the proliferation of human traditions for centuries has ended up submerging the body of the Christ today?

Many are familiar with the notion that, at the end of the age, the Church would witness what almost everyone —following in this the vernacular New Testament translations of a few words from the Apostle Paul to the Saints in Thessalonica— have become used to calling the mystery of iniquity. [11] It could be said that over the centuries, there have been many who have made rivers of ink flow in order to specify the exact meaning of said expression, perhaps clouded by the fact that it speaks to us of a certain mystery. However, anyone who reviews the expression in question that Paul uses will be able to see that what he has there in view is not something that is hidden from him, quite the opposite. Here are his words most faithfully reflected from the Greek:

Since the mystery is indeed already at work, the iniquity… [12]

In other words: it is not that this iniquity involves some mystery, but that it has itself been a mystery, since it has been working within God’s people in a hidden way, concealed from the eyes of all or almost all because of the hypocrisy of those who were to teach them its opposite, that is, the justice of God as it is displayed in his instruction, misnamed law. [13] This is exactly what the Lord reproached the scribes and Pharisees of his day —who certainly “sat in the chair of Moses” as expositors of God's instruction— [14] when he told them that in their hypocrisy they showed themselves righteous before men, when, indeed, within them were full of iniquity. [15]

It is, then, the ecclesiastical leaders and teachers who for centuries and centuries, since the very days of the Lord and his apostles, have pretended to be guided by the justice that follows from the instruction of God while at the same time being carried away by the iniquity —that is, by anomie—, which they have transferred to the people whom they were to instruct in the justice of God. It is precisely this and nothing else that for centuries has caused the ever-increasing and permanent sinking of God’s people in all kinds of transgression of sound instruction and of the exposition that Jesus Christ himself and his apostles have made of it.

And it is so, due to the iniquity encouraged and sanctioned among God’s people by their leaders and teachers, that, for example, for centuries images and statues have proliferated with the excuse that they are only representations, being that the instruction of God forbids in terms as clear as conclusive to make any image and likeness whatsoever of anything that is in the sky, on the earth or in the water below the earth in order to revere and honor it. [16] And it is thus, also, that those others have come out who, in their bitter opposition to the previous ones and in their contempt for all tutelary authority, have made an idol of the Bible itself under the motto of sola scriptura, completely ignoring what can be read in the Scriptures themselves, namely: that the very written letter leads to death if it is understood with a merely carnal mind, deprived of the assistance of the Spirit. [17]

What, then, is that whose proliferation throughout the centuries would wax cold the love of so many within God’s people, according to the sayings of Jesus himself? Yes, what is, ultimately, iniquity? In short, iniquity is the generalized attitude that today has almost completely taken hold of God’s people, which consists not only in great ignorance, but, what is even more serious, in a total indifference to knowing with precision the procedures of God’s justice. It is, neither more nor less, what happened with the Israel of the days of the apostle Paul, who said, regarding these, to the saints of Rome:

Brethren, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for Israel is for salvation. For I testify to them that they have a fervor for God, though not according to precise knowledge. Since, ignoring the procedure of God’s justice and going after establishing their own procedure, they do not abide by the justice of God... (Romans 10:1-3)

Hence the Lord Jesus said, to those who listened to him in his day, these words that clearly fall on Christians today:

Not everyone who calls me “Lord, Lord” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many are those who will say to me on that day: “Lord, Lord! Have we not prophesied in your name? And have we not cast out many demons in your name? And did we not perform many miracles in your name?” And then I will say to them: “I have never recognized you! Get away from me, you doers of iniquity!” (Matthew 7:21-23)

And, as I have said above, what happened to the Israel of old is just one example of what would happen to God’s people in the last days of the age, that is, in our own days...

What to do, then, today? And how could a people who, by being sunk in the iniquity and disobedience of centuries, have become the depositary of the many curses of the Lord, [18] would go forward to announce the good news of God’s kingdom as a testimony to all nations? Because the truth is that God’s people today are facing the same situation of mortal danger as those nations among which they live, plunged in exactly the same impotence in the face of said danger as that experienced by all the nations of the world. On the other hand, the nations already know very well the Christians who live in their midst; they know, therefore, what to expect from their words and behavior. And so, could they not tell them, today more than ever, in the face of this generalized situation of imminent ruin, that of “doctor, heal yourself”?

In case anyone is unaware of what situation I am referring to specifically here —a situation from which the coronavirus pandemic and everything that it has brought for more than a year is just a prelude, a mere appetizer—, the same is none other than the one so eloquently described by Bishop Carlo Maria Viganò in his second open letter to President Donald Trump at the end of October of last year 2020 and whose most remarkable passages say:

A global plan called the Great Reset is underway. Its architect is a global élite that wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations. In several nations this plan has already been approved and financed; in others it is still in an early stage. Behind the world leaders who are the accomplices and executors of this infernal project, there are unscrupulous characters who finance the World Economic Forum and Event 201, promoting their agenda.

The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and cancelling individual debt. The price of these concessions from the International Monetary Fund will be the renunciation of private property and adherence to a program of vaccination against Covid-19 and Covid-21 promoted by Bill Gates with the collaboration of the main pharmaceutical groups. Beyond the enormous economic interests that motivate the promoters of the Great Reset, the imposition of the vaccination will be accompanied by the requirement of a health passport and a digital ID, with the consequent contact tracing of the population of the entire world. Those who do not accept these measures will be confined in detention camps or placed under house arrest, and all their assets will be confiscated.

Mr. President, I imagine that you are already aware that in some countries the Great Reset will be activated between the end of this year and the first trimester of 2021. For this purpose, further lockdowns are planned, which will be officially justified by a supposed second and third wave of the pandemic. You are well aware of the means that have been deployed to sow panic and legitimize draconian limitations on individual liberties, artfully provoking a world-wide economic crisis. In the intentions of its architects, this crisis will serve to make the recourse of nations to the Great Reset irreversible, thereby giving the final blow to a world whose existence and very memory they want to completely cancel…

[...]

As is now clear [sic], the one who occupies the Chair of Peter has betrayed his role from the very beginning in order to defend and promote the globalist ideology… [19]

Almost eight months have passed since Bishop Viganò addressed these more than disturbing words to President Trump, which the mass media have barely echoed, except, for the most part, to ridicule them, labeling them “conspiracy theories”. However, anyone who knows how to evaluate the veracity of no matter what information and its sources, will know that the picture presented here by Bishop Viganò does not stray too far from the destiny that, at least from the perspective of the men who dominate the world today, awaits all nations shortly.

Actually, anyone who is guided by the spirit of God will know that the whole plan to bring about a Great Reset points unequivocally to the great tribulation predicted by the Lord Jesus Christ and by his servant John in the book of Revelation. [20]

What is, in fact, this “great tribulation” that Christians have been talking about for centuries if not the last stage of the great evil that God would bring against his people at the end of days? And the fact that this last stage would have all the characteristics of the biopolitics that the elites of today exert on the nations is more than clear when reading the only place in the entire Old Testament where the expression “great tribulation” is read. It is in the following passage in the book of Nehemiah, in which the remnant of God’s people are confessing before him their iniquity —that is, their abandonment of divine instruction— and which describes the consequences of that iniquity in these terms:

Behold, today we are servants. And as for the land that you gave to our ancestors to eat its fruit and its good, its product is multiplied for the kings that you have placed over us because of our sins, who rule over our own bodies and over our livestock as they please, while we are in great tribulation… (Nehemiah 9:36,37)

In other words: the great tribulation would come upon God’s people as a consequence of their prolonged iniquity, manifested in a desertion and in an indifference of centuries with respect to the instruction that God himself has given to his people so that they understand his ways and conduct themselves accordingly; it would also come in the form of a total domination, not only over their goods, but even over their own bodies.

Let no one be deceived in this regard! The Lord is the creator of heaven and earth and the one who made all men, not only his people, but also his enemies, even the cruelest ones. He is good and merciful, but also just: he will not be respectful of persons and will not take the guilty as innocent, neither among his enemies nor among his own people. He has all power in heaven and on earth. [21] And it is he who says today to those among his people who stare in astonishment at the daily crumbling of everything that they hold dear:

“Where is your mother's divorce deed, with which I repudiated her? Or to whom among my creditors have I sold them? See: for your iniquities you are sold, and for your transgressions your mother has been put away! Why did I come and there was no one, I called and no one answered? Has my hand been shortened to redeem? Do I no longer have the strength to deliver? See: with my rebuke I dry up a sea and make rivers like a desert, its fish rot for lack of water and die of thirst; I have seen the sky of blackness and I put on it sackcloth as a cover!” (Isaiah 50:1-3)

It is, in short, to these days and not to others that the Lord pointed out when he showed the prophet Amos a symbolic basket of summer fruit, saying these words, which are nothing but the ultimatum that weighs on his people today:

The end has come upon my people Israel! I will not ignore it again!” (Amos 8:2)

Do God’s people now understand more exactly what days are these that we are going through?

We read in the book of the prophet Joel:

Sound a trumpet in Zion! Sanctify a fast! Call an assembly! Gather the people together, sanctify a meeting: gather the elders together and add the children and those who suckle at the breasts; let the groom come out of his room and the bride out from under his canopy. Let the priests and ministers of the Lord cry between the court and the altar, saying: “Lord! Forgive your people and do not turn your inheritance over to reproach so that the nations may set them as an example! Why would they say among the peoples ‘where is their God’?” And the Lord, jealous for his land, will have compassion on his people... (Joel 2: 15-18)

Anyone who has understood what has been said so far will understand without further ado that these pressing words in the book of Joel prophetically reflect the terminal situation in which God’s people find themselves today. However, the blindness that God has brought upon his people as a punishment for their iniquity prevents an immense majority of it from realizing it.

Such blindness would manifest itself, in this case, in the form of questions such as: “What do we Christians of the twenty-first century have to do with the sayings of an Israelite prophet who wrote for his countrymen centuries before the birth of Jesus?” But those who raise their objection with such a question, would do so completely ignoring that the prophets of old did not write for their contemporaries but for ourselves [22] and that, moreover, they have done so using similes, [23] parallels through which they described in their days, using the reality in which they were immersed, the events that would take place in the last days of our era.

Another thing that Christians completely ignore is that the prophecies do not have their interpretation in themselves, [24] but they interpret one another and one in relation to the other, until they form a solid testimony of the matter that God has transmitted through his spirit to all the prophets. And the fact is that all the testimonies of the Scriptures indicate that the words in the book of Joel that I have just quoted have been recorded as a direct instruction for our own days, anticipating exactly the situation in which the nations find themselves today and very especially, within them, the remnant of God's people.

The truth is that all the testimonies in the Scriptures, both from the Old and New Testaments, point to the Feast of Tabernacles [25] as the time in which God’s people would meet to cry out to him imploring his forgiveness and an effective deliverance in the last days, in the same days when a great evil would come upon them. And why, in fact, the life of the Lord Jesus Christ himself would leave us with a series of unmistakable indications in this same regard, about this same holiday?

Actually, all the accounts in the Gospels suggest that Jesus’ entry into the ancient city of Jerusalem a few days before he died on the cross was marked by a series of details directly linked, not to the Passover —that is, to the festival that was about to begin in the city in those days— but with Tabernacles. Thus, the crowds who received him triumphantly at the gates of Jerusalem shouted “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”, [26] two exclamations taken directly from Psalm 118. [27] Now, as is known, Psalm 118 had an absolute centrality in the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles in the Jerusalem of the second temple and in Jesus’ own day. This mysterious direct link with this festival —mysterious, in that the Passover would be beginning in just five days and the Feast of Tabernacles was still six months away— is confirmed by the fact that those who acclaimed Jesus with these extracted expressions of a central psalm of said festival, they did it, also, wielding tree branches and palm leaves, as it was customary to do on that occasion.

The second unmistakable indication that the spirit of God has recorded in the gospels regarding the crucial character that the Feast of Tabernacles would have in the days before the end of the age is found in the mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ himself, who, in fact, has repeated some of those same words from Psalm 118 shortly before his trial and crucifixion. He said then, in effect, after lamenting over Jerusalem because of the blindness of its leaders and all its inhabitants:

“I tell you that by no means will you see me from now on until you say ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord’!” (Matthew 23:39) [28]

The third and last evident indication of the time that God’s own plan has established for the liberation of his people at the end of the age is found in the Gospel of John, when the Lord's brothers tried to incite him to go to the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem. It was then that Jesus said these very suggestive words:

“My time has not yet come, but your time is always at hand. […] You go up to this feast; I am not yet coming to this feast, because my time has not yet been fulfilled…” (John 7: 6,8)

There are, however, two more testimonies that point to the crucial importance of the Feast of Tabernacles in relation to the time when the blindness that would afflict God’s people in our day due to their iniquity would be cured.

The first of such testimonies is the one provided by Moses himself, who left precise instructions for the scroll containing the text of Deuteronomy to be read to the people every seven years during the seven days of the Feast of Tabernacles. [29] The second one, also from the Old Testament, shows us how this same instruction contained in the scroll written by Moses was finally understood by all the people when it was read to them in the days prior to said festival by the scribe Ezra and simultaneously translated into Aramaic —that is, the language they adopted during their exile in Babylon— by a group of Levites. Such an understanding of God’s instruction made such a powerful impression on the people that they all cried upon hearing it. And why were they crying? Neither more nor less than for having understood that all the evil that had come on his ancestors and on themselves was directly linked to their total negligence towards said instruction. It was, in fact, this very reading that would lead them to the firm conviction with which they celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles a few days later, a celebration that their ancestors had not observed since the days of Joshua, [30] that is, for about a millennium.

But perhaps the greatest testimony of the link between the Feast of Tabernacles and the deliverance from a great tribulation at the end of this age is found in the book of Revelation, in the vision that was given to John, a servant of Jesus Christ, precisely in relation to it. It is in this vision that John saw a great crowd that could not be counted, coming from every nation, group, people and language, which waved palm leaves while praising and thanking God for having saved them. For having saved them from what? From any tribulation? No! For having saved them from the great tribulation, that is, from that same one prophetically prefigured by the passage already quoted from the book of Nehemiah, announced by the Lord Jesus Christ for the days before the end of this age and which, as has already been seen in the description made by Mons. Viganò in his letter to President Trump, is absolutely linked to the plans of the world elites to bring over the whole world what they euphemistically call a Great Reset...

It has been precisely in the name of all that has been stated so far and the urgency that all this entails that last May I felt the urgent need to write an «Open letter to Donald J. Trump» and another «Open letter to Mons. Carlo Maria Viganò», which I published on the blog of this site as part of a series that I named «In the days of the Great Hosanna». In them, after expressing to both personalities my impression of the current situation in the world in general and in the West in particular, I have extended them a proposal that now, by writing and publishing these lines, I turn into a call to all God’s people and to all men and women of good will.

That is a call to face the much promoted Great Reset with a fulfillment of the prophetic order indicated for our days about the Feast of Tabernacles, whose seventh day among the Jews has more than adequately adopted the traditional name of Hoshanna Rabbah, that is to say, the “Great Hosanna”, an expression whose meaning is none other than that of a great cry for an effective liberation that could only come from God and from his total sovereignty over all human affairs. According to Judaic tradition, it was also on this occasion that, in the days when the temple was still standing, seventy bulls were offered in sacrifice as a propitiation for each of the seventy nations of the world represented in the book of Genesis. [31] It was also precisely on this seventh day of Tabernacles that, brandishing tree branches and palm leaves, a procession surrounded the sacrificial altar located in the courtyard of the temple seven times while imploring God for his salvation and prosperity by the cry of “Hosanna!”, which, as I have just implied, means precisely “We beseech you: save us!”

In my respective letters to President Trump and Mons. Viganò I have indicated to both that the ideal place for this meeting of Tabernacles would be the city of Salto, a city of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay on the banks of the river of the same name, bordering, also, with my country, Argentina, while very close to the southern border of Brazil. It is in it, on the other hand, that precisely thirty-three years ago a massive mass was celebrated presided over by the then Pope John Paul II, a mass whose homily began with the words of the book of the prophet Isaiah that the Lord Jesus Christ read in the synagogue of Nazareth, thus giving a kind of official beginning to his ministry:

The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the afflicted… (Luke 4:18)

And if I have thought of the Uruguayan city of Salto as the ideal place to carry out this meeting of supplication and reconciliation with the Lord, it has also been due to the fact that, in the event of having the auspices of Bishop Viganò representing European Christianity and President Trump representing the Christian people of North America, the realization of an event like the one envisioned here in a city in the Southern Cone of South America would cover, both in geographical and symbolic terms, neither more nor less than the whole of Western Christendom. In this way, the entirety of God’s people would be united in a single cry to the Lord, imploring his visitation and his forgiveness, more necessary than ever.

At the same time, I am fully convinced that such an event would bring healing not only to God’s people but also to the other nations. Above all, it would bring the much-needed relief that, once freed from the plans concocted by the most perfidious and cruel enemies of all humanity, it would, then, yes, suppose a true “great reset”. It will be then —and only then— that God’s people will be able to give a full and effective fulfillment to those other words given by the Lord Jesus Christ to his disciples about the end of the age and that, in fact, constitute the motto of this, my site:

And this good news of the kingdom will be announced throughout the world as a witness to all nations… (Matthew 24:14)

I now, therefore, extend from here a humble appeal to the national authorities of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay and the municipal authorities of the city of Salto so that they see with good eyes the realization, in said locality, of a solemn meeting of God’s people to take place between September 21st and 28th, 2021, an event that, without a doubt, will result in a great blessing from the Most High on said beloved land and on all its inhabitants, among whom, in fact, I have a part of my family roots.

I also launch from here a call to every man and woman, to every elder man and woman, to every boy and girl of God’s people to join the proposal already extended to President Trump and Mons. Viganò in such same sense and to communicate by all the means they have, to both of them, their approval of this call.

I also call everyone to raise their prayers to God for the prompt and effective realization of such a solemn assembly that brings together all those who reverence the Lord Jesus Christ as the true God, from whom they truly yearn to receive his forgiveness, with humility and without incurring in the sectarianisms that have stunted for centuries the healthy growth of God’s people and impeded their unity in the Spirit, [32] whose direction is more necessary today than ever in order to be able to pass these last days of the era in joyful awaiting the prompt arrival of his kingdom.

Finally, I call everyone to seek in these days —with all their heart, with all their mind and with all their strength, in a bond of love and truth with one another— [33] that blessing that the Lord himself has ordained in favor of his people in the old administration of Aaron and of his sons in the wilderness:

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face shine upon you and show you his favor. May the Lord lift up his face over you and give you peace...
