The Lord says this because He knows it is for our good. He would build a wall around us, to keep us from transgression, so that His blessing and love may be bestowed on us in rich measure. This is the reason we have established a school here. The Lord instructed us that this was the place in which we should locate, and we have had every reason to think that we are in the right place. We have been brought together as a school, and we need to realize that the Holy Spirit, who is as much a person as God is a person, is walking through these grounds, unseen by human eyes, that the Lord God is our Keeper and Helper. He hears every word we utter and knows every thought of the mind. 14LtMs, Ms66, 1899.11

He(Holy Spirit) is as much a real person as if it were Christ here physically! This is the meaning of that statement. His personal presence (by His Spirit) is His(Christโ€™s)person, which is as much a person(Holy Spirit) as He(Christ)is a person. The Holy Spirit is the unseen person of Christ.

The religious feelings of many were more natural than spiritual, and although they tried to be satisfied they felt an unrestโ€”cold, dark, and Christless. They remained in ignorance of how they stand toward God, ignorant as far as experimental knowledge was concerned of the office work of our Mediator and Intercessor.
