Eloi, Eloi, Lema Sabachthani VII

"My God My God " Has anyone ever thought about how unusual that cry is?
Is it necessary to cry out to God twice? Does He cry a second time for dramatic effect? 
Or is there a more profound way of understanding these last words of the first advent?

It might not be that Jesus is calling out to God the Father and to God the Holy Spirit with the dual reference. 
But it is logical that if the Father in His Holiness turned His back to the Son, Then at that moment Jesus was rejected by the Spirit of Holiness as well. 

The man Jesus who was born in Bethlehem was like other Old Testament Saints Filled with the Spirit, And like other Old Testament Saints the Spirit would leave them. In the flesh Jesus lived a perfect Spirit filled life. And we in the Spirit have the ability to conquer the flesh perfectly. Yet we fail miserably. The contrast between us and Jesus proves that He is truly God. What a contradiction that Jesus promises us a comforter who will never leave us and never forsake us regardless of our sin. And yet the comforter left Jesus comfortless because of our sin.
