The Seven Last Words of Jesus and the Church


  • Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. … 
  • Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. … 
  • Woman, behold, thy son! … 
  • My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? … 
  • I thirst. … 
  • It is finished. … 
  • Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.

The seven last words represent the church on the earth throughout it’s time on the earth before the second coming of Christ.
In the Ephesus (30-100 A.D.) age of the church It would be through water baptism that the forgiveness of sins would be remitted that the Father granted.

The church of Smyrna (100 -313 A.D.) is the persecuted church that went into eternity through a baptism of martyrdom. They are with Christ in paradise

Woman behold thy son. Christ is taken from her but he gives her a son in his place. The church then honors the Mother of the church, Mary the Theotokos, the God bearer. This is the church age of Pergamos (313 – 590 A.D.)

My God, my God why has thou forsaken me is the Thyatiran age (590 – 1517 A.D.) where we have the Great Schism of 1054, but other splits happened as well such as Martin Luther.

I thirst is the age of Sardis (1517 – 1750 A.D.) where we see the reformation, and the Age of Enlightenment.

It is finished is the age of Philadelphia (1750 – 1914 A.D.) where the end is coming into play. The book of Revelation is getting ready to take center stage.

Into thy hands I commit my Spirit is the Laodicean age (1914 – present) the coming of the Lord is soon to happen and the catching away of the saints at that time as well.
