Bruce R. McConkie - Final Testimony

I would encourage you to watch, download and share the final testimony of Bruce R. McConkie. 

There are few things more powerful than the final testimony of Bruce R. McConkie. Elder McConkie is somewhat of a legend in the church. One of the most out spoken general authorities on our doctrines, and had many opinions and wrote many things, but his testimony is what really matters.

I had looked for years to try to find his testimony, you won't find it in LDS videos but you will find it in the general conference reports on the churches website the link is as follows:

https://www.lds.org/general-conference/1985/04/the-purifying-power-of-gethsemane?lang=eng

The great part is you can download it for free and watch it over and over again!

I get goose bumps every time I hear: "I feel, and the Spirit seems to accord, . . " he then continues with "that the most important doctrine I can declare, and the most powerful testimony I can bear, is of the atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ."

I love how he ends it with his final witness that Jesus is the Christ.

"And now, as pertaining to this perfect atonement, wrought by the shedding of the blood of God—I testify that it took place in Gethsemane and at Golgotha, and as pertaining to Jesus Christ, I testify that he is the Son of the Living God and was crucified for the sins of the world. He is our Lord, our God, and our King. This I know of myself independent of any other person.

I am one of his witnesses, and in a coming day I shall feel the nail marks in his hands and in his feet and shall wet his feet with my tears.

But I shall not know any better then than I know now that he is God’s Almighty Son, that he is our Savior and Redeemer, and that salvation comes in and through his atoning blood and in no other way."

I want this type of testimony to envelope me and to hold me through to the end of my mortal journey as well.
