Opinion: 7 Most Influential Preachers Who Were Led by the Holy Spirit in Their Ministries

"Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and What thou seest,write in a book ,and sent it unto the seven churches which are in Asia;unto Ephesus,and unto Smyrna,and unto Pergamos,and untoTyatira,and unto Sardis,and unto Philadelphia ,and unto Laodecea." (revelation1:11 KJV).

Just after Christ died, there has been seven church ages as shown in (REV1:11)

also

"The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand ,and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven golden candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches ". revelation 1:20 KJV).
