“He Cometh in the Fulness of His Own Time”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

There is a spirit associated with teaching and testifying of Christ and the saving principles of his gospel that cannot be experienced in any other way. Nephi rejoiced in that spirit, as have all who have likewise taught and testified of these verities. He reasoned that if there were no Christ, no Savior to redeem mankind from their lost and fallen state, then there could be no God, for there would be no justice; and if there were no God, there could be no creation. Thus all created things testify of the existence of God, and, Nephi added, “He is Christ, and he cometh in the fulness of his own time.”
