The Seven Phrases YAHSHUA Uttered at the Cross Before His Death

Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.

Today, you will be with Me in Paradise.

Woman, see your son; see your mother!

I thirst.

My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

Into Your hand, I commit My Spirit.

It is finished!

These words from YAHSHUA’S mouth just before He died are of great significance. He was uttering the message of salvation to the world through Him. The first phrase constitutes Him as a High Priest interceding for us, sinners: Father, forgive them for they know not what they do. The second, the promise of heaven for those who will accept Him: Today, you will be with Me in Paradise. The third, He releases Mary from her earthly mother relationship: Woman, see your son; see your mother. The fourth, I thirst. The thirst of hell; He suffered in our instead; the fifth, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? This is the eternal separation from God we sinners were condemned to suffer; sixth, Into Your hand, I commit My Spirit, He gave up His precious life, to give us eternal life; seventh, It is finished! He paid for our redemption in full, according to the letter of the Law.

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
